Renal tumors percutaneous ablation by microwave. Initial experience.

CONCLUSION: Percutaneous ablation of renal tumors seems to be a safe and effective technique, either via transpulmonary, transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach, depending on tumor location. KEY POINTS: • Microwave ablation produces coagulation necrosis. • The sink effect is smaller in microwave ablation. • Microwave ablation seems to be safe and effective. • The type of approach is not correlated with major complications (Clavien> o =II).

Authors: Moon EJ, Kim SB, Chung JY, Song JY, Yi JW Abstract Most regional anesthesia in breast surgeries is performed as postoperative pain management under general anesthesia, and not as the primary anesthesia. Regional anesthesia has very few cardiovascular or pulmonary side-effects, as compared with general anesthesia. Pectoral nerve block is a relatively new technique, with fewer complications than other regional anesthesia. We performed Pecs I and Pec II block simultaneously as primary anesthesia under moderate sedation with dexmedetomidine for breast conserving surgery in a 49-year-old female patient with inv...

Authors: Chiu WC, Lee YL, Chou SH, Lee YC, Su YH, Hou YA, Chiang HH, Yin HL, Hu SC, Huang MY, Huang CJ, Yuan SF Abstract BACKGROUND: Primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) is a common clinical problem. However, PSP recurrence is still a major concern. Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) plays a protective role against oxidative airway diseases. The aim was to investigate the role of Nrf2 in PSP patients and its correlation with recurrence. METHODS: Eighty-nine patients were enrolled and received wedge resection of lung with identifiable blebs. Nrf2 expression in resected lung tissues was determin...

Authors: Fourdrain A, De Dominicis F, Lafitte S, Iquille J, Prevot F, Lorne E, Monconduit J, Bagan P, Berna P Abstract BACKGROUND: Predicted postoperative FEV1 (ppoFEV1) must be estimated preoperatively prior to surgery for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We evaluated a lung volumetry approach based on chest computed tomography (CT). METHODS: A prospective study was conducted over a period of one year in eligible lung cancer patients to evaluate the difference between ppoFEV1 and the 3-month postoperative FEV1 (poFEV1). Patients in whom CT was performed in another hospital and those with factors influencing...

Authors: Gushiken LFS, Hussni CA, Bastos JK, Rozza AL, Beserra FP, Vieira AJ, Padovani CR, Lemos M, Polizello Junior M, da Silva JJM, Nóbrega RH, Martinez ERM, Pellizzon CH Abstract The wound healing is a complex process which, sometimes, can be a problem in public health because of the possibility of physical disability or even death. Due to the lack of a gold standard drug in skin wound treatment and aiming at the discovery of new treatments in skin repair and the mechanisms involved in the process, we used oleoresin (OR) from Copaifera langsdorffii and hydroalcoholic extract of the leaves (EH) to treat ra...
