Osteopathy for chronic pain after breast cancer surgery: A monocentric randomised study.

DISCUSSION: Patients are strongly seeking complementary therapies. Few studies exist. Our study has encountered major recruitment difficulties therefore limiting the interpretation of the results. Despite the absence of difference in the main objective, some other scores (QOL, depression) are noteworthy in favor of osteopathy. Further multicentric studies are needed.

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Journal of Sport and Health ScienceAuthor(s): Xin Luan, Xiangyang Tian, Haixin Zhang, Rui Huang, Na Li, Peijie Chen, Ru WangAbstractA growing understanding of the benefits of exercise over the past few decades has prompted researchers to take an interest in the possibilities of exercise therapy. Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...

CONCLUSIONS: MBSR may improve quality of life slightly at the end of the intervention but may result in little to no difference later on. MBSR probably slightly reduces anxiety, depression and slightly improves quality of sleep at both the end of the intervention and up to six months later. A beneficial effect on fatigue was apparent at the end of the intervention but not up to six months later. Up to two years after the intervention, MBSR probably results in little to no difference in anxiety and depression; there were no data available for fatigue or quality of sleep.

A 79-year-old woman with a history of anxiety, depression, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as a remote history of breast cancer treated with lumpectomy and radiation, presented to her primary care physician with new right upper  quadrant abdominal pain. Abdominal ultrasound identified 3 liver lesions, with MRI confirmation. Computed tomography–guided liver biopsy identified a diagnosis of small cell carcinoma, positive for synaptophysin and chromogranin. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography identified a 3.3- cm left hilar mass with mediastinal lymphadenopathy and concern for lympha...

This study aimed to identify a broader range of psychological predictors of acute and chronic pain following breast cancer surgery through a systematic review of relevant prospective studies. Methods: Web of Science, psychINFO, PubMed, and MEDLINE databases were searched to identify relevant prospective cohort studies. Studies were included if women were to undergo mastectomy or wide local excision, if psychological factors were assessed before surgery, and pain assessed after surgery. Results: Twelve studies (representing 11 independent cohorts) met the inclusion criteria and described 10 psychological predictors. A...

In this study, we examined 251 breast cancer survivors with surgeon-verified intercostobrachial nerve resection to identify factors that associate with CPSNP. The patients were recruited from a previous study of 1000 women treated for breast cancer in 2006 to 2010. This enabled us to analyze preoperative factors that associate with future CPSNP. The patients were re-examined in 2014 to 2016 to diagnose CPSNP using the revised NP diagnostic criteria. Preoperative assessments were pain in the area to be operated on, any chronic pain condition, depressive symptoms, anxiety, sleep, and experimental cold pain sensitivity using ...

Conclusion The results obtained from this research shows, in general, the fragility in the social and political infrastructure necessary to improve the living conditions of populations, particularly those that depend on family agriculture in drought prone areas. The conditions of social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities presented in the region can be amplified by the drought process, and can aggravate the impacts resulting drought events, thus disadvantaging the population of this region, as shown in the Fig. 1. The general perception of the interviewees of the health sector shows an agreement with what is found...

CONCLUSION Cognitive impairment can affect daily functioning, quality of life, and capacity to work in patients with cancer and those in remission. Consequently, cognitive assessment is now an important and necessary part of a comprehensive oncological care plan. Cancer-related cognitive impairment might be due to the direct effects of the cancer itself, nonspecific factors, or comorbid conditions that are independent of the disease and/or due to the adverse effects of the treatment or combination of treatments given for the disease. The prevalence and extent of cognitive impairment associated with cancer is recognized but...

Photo from ASCO Mediakit. © ASCO/Danny Morton 2017TheAnnual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology was last week. It ’s been my observation over the years that much of the best palliative-oncology and supportive-oncology research is presented at ASCO each year, before it’s actually published (if it ever gets published).  So I always dig through the palliative/EOL/supportive/psychooncology abstracts each year to see what's happening. Below is a gently annotated list of the abstracts that caught my eye the most, for your perusal and edification. Undoubtedly, these are my idiosyncratic...
