CONCLUSIONS: Acute cooling application blunts the initial phase of anaerobic power output during a subsequent WAnT, which could be explained by a concomitant reduction in neuromuscular firing rate. Given that cryotherapy is widely utilized in a variety of sports, athletes and trainers should pay close attention to the appropriate application of cryotherapy.

Researchers at UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center will soon begin studying the pre-surgery use of cryoablation as a potential early adjuvant therapy for patients with pleural mesothelioma. The pilot study will measure immune system stimulation through local tumor infiltration in hopes of extending patient survival in the future. Cryoablation, also known as cryotherapy or cryosurgery, freezes localized tumors with liquid nitrogen or argon gas. It has been proven effective in killing tumor cells with extreme cold. It is currently used on kidney, liver and prostate cancers, but its use in priming a person’s own i...

Authors: Albalat W, Attwa E, Ebrahim HM Abstract Back ground: Recalcitrant planter warts are representing a therapeutic challenge. Intralesional cryotherapy (ILC) has emerged as a promising therapeutic option in recalcitrant planter warts treatment.Objective: To compare the clinical efficacy, safety and tolerability of (ILC) versus Cryotherapy spray (Cryo-sp) for treatment of recalcitrant plantar warts.Methods: One hundred-thirty patients with recalcitrant plantar warts were assigned equally to two groups. Group A received ILC and group B treated with Cryo-SP. Both groups received one session at 2 weeks intervals u...

We present an adult woman with subcutaneous nodules without any signs or symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. These nodules are believed to be pseudorheumatoid nodules, which are considered a deep form of granuloma annulare. This case is unique because these are typically found in children and have rarely been reported in adults. These nodules are typically asymptomatic and do not require treatment. However, attempts have been made to treat them with intralesional corticosteroids, cryotherapy, or excision. Owing to the fact that this is considered a deep form of granuloma annulare, they are sometimes treated similarly with a ...

It often causes pain, which impairs quality of life of patients. Numerous therapeutic options for plantar warts exist with variable success. However, all of them, including first-line treatment, have different adverse reactions or high recurrence rates. There is no one effective method for all patients. The choice of treatment method puzzles doctors. With the help of medical ...

AbstractAngiokeratomas are benign vascular lesions. Genital angiokeratomas, also referred to as Fordyce angiokeratomas, usually occur on the scrotum in men and the vulva in women. Penile angiokeratoma (PEAKER) is a subtype of genital angiokeratoma in men; clitoral angiokeratoma (CLANKER) is its embryologic analog in women. The PubMed database was used to search the following words: angiokeratoma, clitoris, genital, peaker, penile, penis, rejuvenation, scrotal, scrotum and vulva. The relevant papers and references cited in those papers that were generated by the search were reviewed. The purpose of this article is to summar...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Salvage cryotherapy is a guideline-recommended treatment of localized prostate cancer recurrence after radiation therapy. There is little published evidence analyzing the outcomes of salvage cryotherapy for recurrent prostate cancer following different primary therapy energy modalities. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of patients who received whole gland salvage cryotherapy from 2007-2017 at a large tertiary referral center after either primary radiation therapy (RT) or primary whole gland cryotherapy. Primary outcome was biochemical failure, defined as per the Phoenix cr...
