Conclusion: TRAM flap reconstruction after mastectomy is an appropriate way to improve the patient’s postoperative physical appearance. The results of this study indicated that TRAM flap reconstruction after mastectomy is safe, with an acceptably low number of complications and can be performed by a single surgeon in conjunction with a mastectomy procedure; furthermore, the majority of patients were satisfied with their reconstructed breast.

Conclusion: Most of the results of lower abdominal ultrasound in the patients sent for whole abdominal ultrasound were negative, and the majority of the positive findings were benign conditions requiring no further management. More positive results, especially findings suggestive or suspicious of cancers, were seen in cases with positive clinical data. Routine use of whole abdominal ultrasound does not appear to be very helpful, especially in patients who have no symptoms in the lower abdomen. PMID: 29927560 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Thai medicinal plants and LG remedies which have often been used in the treatment of pain and cancer by Thai traditional practitioners, showed high anti-inflammatory properties on both pathways which represent chronic and acute inflammation. Interestingly, some medicinal plants were used daily in Thai food. In addition, Z. zerumbet and D. birmanica, which has often been used in the treatment of cancer, also showed high cytotoxic activity against cervical cancer cells.
