Assessment of oral cancer pain, anxiety, and quality of life of oral squamous cell carcinoma patients with invasive treatment procedure
The objective of the current study was to assess the preoperative and postoperative oral cancer pain, anxiety, and quality of life of OSCC patients with invasive treatment procedure.MethodsThe current study was conducted by interviewing 21 (10 males; 11 females) patients who had been diagnosed with stage 3 and stage 4 OSCC and about to go through surgery at the inpatient ward of Surgical Oncology Department, Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung, Indonesia. A preoperative and interview was conducted by using the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QOL)-C30, the shortened EORTC QOL Questionnaire for Oesophageal Cancer (OES)18, the visual analog scale (VAS), and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Oral Cancer Pain Questionnaire. All data were analyzed to evaluate the preoperative and postoperative effect.ResultsThe current study showed a significant decrease of the postoperative oral pain (p
Conclusions: The emitter map distribution of the plaque and the computerized tomography of the patient used in a Monte Carlo simulation allow an accurate determination of the plaque position with respect to the tumor with the potential to reduce the dose to sensitive structures.Ocul Oncol Pathol
I think it is entirely appropriate to greet the advent of senolytics with enthusiasm. These treatments are the first legitimate rejuvenation therapies to successfully target one of the root causes of aging, the accumulation of lingering senescent cells in old tissues. The first human trial data is approaching publication, but even before it arrives, the evidence to date strongly suggests that meaningful levels of rejuvenation can be achieved in old people at a very low cost. The first senolytic drugs (such as dasatinib and navitoclax) and plant extracts (such as fisetin and piperlongumine) cost very little, and remove only...
Naturally grown tissues are intricately structured, and the physical properties of tissue derive from the patterning of cells and their behavior in generating a supporting extracellular matrix. This natural complexity ensures that there is still a great deal of work to be accomplished when it comes to the 3-D bioprinting of functional tissue structures; not all tissues can be produced using the current state of the art systems, or at least not in a useful state. The work here is an example of the sort of incremental advance needed to produce tissues that are closer in form and function to those growing naturally inside bod...
LOWER back pain affects one in three adults in the UK and can make how you go about your day-to-day life very difficult. Rather than laying down and resting, it ’s recommended the best way to ease pain is to keep active. Try this particular exercise at home every day to help ease your backache.
Kaiser Khan, now 24, , from Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, was eventually forced to drop out of Liverpool John Moores University when his itching became unbearable.
ConclusionsOperative duration is the only independent factor significantly related to clinically-detected postoperative seroma with its subsequent postoperative pain. Especially in elderly patients, a flapless technique would be recommended as these patients developed larger volumes of SC collections with subsequent higher pain scores, even if seroma was not clinically detected.
PROSTATE cancer symptoms are not always apparent in the early stages because they usually don ’t show until the tumour has grown and put pressure on other parts of the body. But when signs do begin to show, one to be wary of is in the hips.
