Kenya:Aga Khan Offers Free Plastic Surgery for Burn Survivors
[Nation] The Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa planned to conduct its first free reconstructive surgeries for fire accident survivors in the country.
To report the first in human gallbladder cryoablation to treat cholecystitis with imaging and clinical follow up.
To investigate the safety and efficacy of irreversible electroporation (IRE) for the management of locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) in the Korean population.
The purpose of this study was to determine the chemotherapy free interval in comparison to time-to-progression and overall survival in sarcoma patients who undergo ablation procedures.
There is a paucity of data regarding the need for preoperative adrenergic blockade prior to cryoablation for adrenal gland metastases. The largest adrenal ablation cohort (Fintelmann, JVIR 2015) found a 43% rate of hypertensive crisis but had combined data from different ablation modalities which precluded conclusions about the incidence of hypertensive crisis prior to cryoablation. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the safety of cryoablation of adrenal gland metastases performed without preprocedure adrenergic blockade.
The purpose of the study is to systematically review and perform a meta-analysis of radiofrequency ablation as a possible efficacious treatment modality of locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for colorectal cancer lung metastases (CRCLM) has been studied since 2000 and shown to be safe with promising short to mid-term survival data. RFA aims to be an alternative treatment for CRCLM that are unsuitable for lung resection. Recently, microwave ablation (MWA) has grown in popularity for CRCLM. However, short to long-term efficacy of both modalities have yet to be understood.
Robotically assisted sonic therapy (RAST) is an ablation modality based on histotripsy, a non-invasive, non-thermal method of focused ultrasound tissue destruction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the acute and chronic effects of RAST subcutaneous fat ablation in a live porcine model.
To assess the clinical utilization and effectiveness of thermal ablation for stage 4 lung cancer and compare it to stereotactic radiation.
ConclusionES application for 10-min significantly reduced inflammation, improved reepithelialization and angiogenesis when compared to shorter and longer applications. ES for 10 minutes also significantly improved wound healing when compared to the use of modern dressing alone. Therefore, it is recommended to apply ES for 10 minutes a day to improve wound healing.
A new study shows that 44 percent of physicians reported feeling burned out in 2017, an improvement from the 54 percent that said so in 2014.
