Surgical Treatment of Childhood Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumors

Conclusion IMT is a rare tumor of childhood with a spectrum of clinical findings because of variable localization. Surgical treatment is the first choice of treatment. Patients with residual mass and ALK positivity may require medical treatment. In our series, long-term survival of patients was favorable in patients with total resection.

I was recently hired as a consultant to review claims for services provided by about 2 dozen DPMs. The fraud and the abuse are staggering. Most of those involved are young associates in private practices. The practice owners impressed these associates with how much money they can make if they bill as instructed. I have reviewed cases for an initial visit with unilateral heel pain. The patient ended up with BILATERAL xrays, ultrasound and fluoroscopy all for “comparison”. Patients... Fraud

Today, The Department of Justice issued an announcement that was “the first ever criminal action against an EHR vendor.” Criminal action The core of the criminal action was something inevitable:  the tension between better health and better profit.  Here’s what I saw … all of which caused me to be not-so-surprised today when the news broke. In 2008 I was the CMIO at Allscripts.  Much of my work was focused on how our customers could use our products to improve the health of our patients.  We implemented clinical practice guidelines in the software as a way to help clinical teams...

BOSTON (CBS) – Two people in New Hampshire are undergoing testing for novel coronavirus. Health officials say the two people recently traveled to Wuhan City, China and developed respiratory symptoms. “These people have more mild illness, but both sought healthcare for their illnesses and are recovering,” the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services said. “They remain isolated until test results are available.” On Thursday, a student from White Mountain School in Bethlehem went to the emergency room at Littleton Regional Healthcare with mild flu-like symptoms. The student had trave...

Also, being a problematic BCS class IV drug, it poses challenges for the formulators. Henceforth, it was envisioned to synthesize an analogue of DTX with a biocompatible lipid, i.e., palmitic acid. The in-silico studies (molecular docking a...

ConclusionWhile a timely work-up of advanced PC patients remains important, delays in treatment initiation due to repeated biopsies, inclusion in a clinical study or transfer to a specialized cancer center appear to be justified in light of the absence of a strong adverse effect of prolonged TTI on prognosis in advanced PC patients.

This study aimed to evaluate the clinical outcomes, toxicity, and prognostic factors of SBRT combined with gemcitabine plus capecitabine (GEM-CAP) in treating locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC).MethodsA total of 56 patients with LAPC treated with SBRT combined with GEM-CAP were reviewed from October 2010 to October 2016. The median total prescription dose at five fractions was 40  Gy (30–50 Gy). The patients were subjected to two cycles of GEM-CAP before SBRT. GEM-CAP chemotherapy was then offered for four cycles or until disease tolerance or progression. The primary endpoints included overall surviv...

ConclusionsAchieving pCR after neoadjuvant chemotherapy was associated with clinically meaningful improvements in survival parameters in a real-world setting. The cumulative data support pCR as a valid surrogate endpoint in both clinical trials and population-based settings.

Publication date: Available online 26 January 2020Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Nishant Rao, Yen-Ting Chen, Regan Ramirez, John Tran, Sheng Li, Pranav J. ParikhAbstractPrimary somatosensory cortex (S1) is involved in pain processing and thus its suppression using neuromodulatory techniques such as continuous theta burst stimulation (cTBS) might be a potential pain management strategy in patients with neuropathic pain. cTBS over S1 is known to elevate pain threshold in young adults. However, the time course of this after-effect is unknown. Furthermore, the effect of cTBS over S1 on pain threshold might be confounde...
