Frostbite After Cryotherapy?

Discussion Veruccae plantaris or plantar warts are caused by Human Papillomavirus which causes benign epidermal tumors that often have a cauliflower pattern on the foot that may be elevated or flush with the surrounding skin. Lesions may resemble calluses but the normal footprint pattern is disrupted. The lesions often have pinpoint hemorrhages that appear as black dots. In an immunocompetent individual, the lesions usually have spontaneous resolution within 2 years but the infection may spread to create additional lesions. The lesions may also cause pain or discomfort because of their size or location. There are numerous potential treatments for common warts. A 2012 Cochrane Collaboration evaluation found salicylic acid to be better than placebo especially for hand lesions. Cryotherapy overall for all sites was not better than control, but for hands may have slightly better outcomes. More aggressive cryotherapy was more effective than gentle cryotherapy but had increased side effects. In general, cryotherapy for verrucous lesions tries to include the actual lesion and a 1-2 mm halo of normal tissue around the lesion. Even with professional equipment it still can be difficult to control the precise application of the cryotherapy to the verrucous lesions because of the lesion location, lesion depth, width of the liquid nitrogen spray from the applicator, and the length of time the cryotherapy is applied. Cryotherapy application by cotton bud is more precise as it is a direct...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Migraine is a frequent and debilitating primary headache. Pain catastrophizing is a negative set activated in response to anticipated or actual pain. The anticipatory fear of pain, one of its characteristics, has been associated with a greater prescription and use of analgesics. AIM: To explore the pain catastrophizing in relation to analgesic overuse and the headache impact on quality of life in patients with chronic migraine. PATIENTS AND METHODS: An observational cross-sectional analytical study was performed. Patients older than 18 years with chronic migraine were included, who...

CONCLUSIONS: Urethral and bladder foreign bodies by electric wire are a rare pathology. They can be due to different motivations. The treatment consists of the extraction of the cable, which can be carried out by endoscopic or open surgery depending on the size and morphology of the cable. It is advisable to study the mental state of these patients. PMID: 32240116 [PubMed - in process]
