ConclusionFinal flushing of the canal with saline either cold or at room temperature was effective for post-endodontic pain control. This can be promising as an essential step in endodontic treatment to reduce post-endodontic pain. The room-temperature saline as final irrigation showed comparable results to intra-canal cryotherapy.

Conclusions Cryotherapy applied on the first day after mandibular third molar removal can manage edema in the patients. Well-designed randomized clinical trials to test the efficacy of cryotherapy after surgical removal of third molars are needed to justify its indication.

AbstractThe main purpose of the study is to establish correlations for the ablation volume and the ice front as a function of the spray parameters. The ablation volume and the ice front depend upon the nozzle diameter, spraying distance and the freeze duration (spray parameters). The estimation of the ablation volume using the spray parameters shall be useful in surgical practice to ablate the different sizes of tumours. Liquid nitrogen spray cooling is carried out with 0.8 mm, 0.6 mm and 0.4 mm nozzle diameters. The spraying distance is maintained at 9 mm, 18 mm and 27 mm. The spray cooling is carried out for a single fre...
This report describes the interventional bronchoscopic cryotherapy for a patient with CAO caused by squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. We display a series of dramatic change of chest radiographs before and after the intervention. Patient concerns: A 70-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma of the middle third of the esophagus (initial staging, pT2N0M0; stage IIB; in January 2017) underwent Video-assisted esophagectomy and reconstruction with a gastric conduit via a substernal route. Following Chest computed tomography and positron emission tomography revealed disease progression with paratracheal metastases. ...
CONCLUSIONS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Evidence suggests that cryotherapy may have a small benefit in reducing pain after third-molar surgery, but it is not effective on facial swelling and trismus. Owing to the lack of standardization of cold application, effective evidence-based treatment protocols for cryotherapy after third-molar surgery still need to be established.

We present a patient with a verrucous melanoma that could be mistaken for a benign skin tumor like an inflamed seborrheic keratosis. In our patient's case, her verrucous plaque was initially clinically suggestive of a benign seborrheic keratosis. However, given the patient's complaint of pain associated with the lesion, a biopsy was performed and revealed a verrucous-keratotic malignant melanoma, which was subsequently removed through surgical excision. It is important to remain vigilant of this diagnosis, as treatment for inflamed seborrheic keratosis often includes a trial of cryotherapy, which potentially could lead to ...
