METHODS: This retrospective study compared all consecutive patients with early stage cervical cancer since the beginning of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the Jewish General Hospital in 2003, ...

Authors: Bennett A, Lepage C, Thavorn K, Fergusson D, Murnaghan O, Coyle D, Singh SS Abstract Traditionally, hysteroscopy has been performed in the main operating room with the patient under general anaesthesia. Hysteroscopy performed in an office setting avoids the risks of general anaesthesia. The aim of this review was to evaluate the effectiveness of outpatient hysteroscopy compared with hysteroscopy performed in the operating room to diagnose and/or treat intrauterine pathology. Relevant electronic databases were searched, including Medline, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library. RCTs and nonrandomized studies that...

CONCLUSION: Observational studies suggest some degree of association between serum hormones measured in pregnancy and a woman's future risk of breast and ovarian cancer. More data are needed to determine sufficiently whether certain blood hormone levels measured in pregnancy are predictive of future cancer risk. PMID: 30528445 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Yimer H, Woldie H Abstract The number of CS procedures has increased dramatically both in developed and developing countries in recent decades. CS has been associated with chronic pain. A vicious impediment on quality of life may occur among women who experience chronic post-CS pain (CPCSP). Therefore, this systematic review aimed to synthesize the available evidence on the incidence of chronic pain after Caesarean delivery and the possible risk factors for the development of chronic pain. The PubMed, Embase, and Google Scholar databases were searched for articles published in English between 2004 and Janu...

Authors: Lee S, Cohen DJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: Esophageal cancer is a heterogeneous cancer comprised of differing cells of origin, molecular changes, and immune microenvironments. To date, most advances have been made in chemotherapy regimens where a one-size-fits-all approach is used. As a result, there remains a lack of tailored treatment options for such a heterogeneous cancer. This paper highlights the current standard of care treatment options as well as active areas of clinical research. Areas covered: The authors review the key trials that have led to current standard of care treatment including pivotal che...

Authors: Penna F, Costelli P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Cachexia is a frequent feature of chronic diseases. This syndrome includes loss of body weight, depletion of skeletal muscle mass and altered metabolic homeostasis. Acceleration of protein and energy metabolism, impaired myogenesis and systemic inflammation contribute to cachexia. Its occurrence impinges on treatment tolerance and on the quality of life of the patient, however, no effective therapy is available yet. Areas covered: This review focuses on the use of histone deacetylase inhibitors as pharmacological tools to prevent or delay cachexia, with reference ...

Conclusions: The current intervention used a Strength-Based Approach to facilitate implementation of exercise activities that could be completed by the sample. Therefore, integration of these techniques into mainstream clinical practice and research should be feasible with this patient population. Future research directions and implications of these findings also are discussed.
