Bronchoscopic forceps were used to incise the intra-tracheal lump repeatedly. The incision was frozen with a cryosurgery probe, argon knife was used to stop the bleeding until the airway lumen stenosis was reduced to approximately 40%, after which, it continued to enter the lumen. We used bronchoscopic biopsy forceps to repeate...

ConclusionThe vast majority of included RCTs had a low level of evidence, thereby preventing the establishment of a hierarchy of treatments. Nevertheless, our results provide an overview of the main AGW treatments available for general practitioners and specialists. While provider-administered treatments are superior, patient-administered treatments (e.g., imiquimod, podophyllotoxin) are useful solutions for compliant patients.Protocol registrationPROSPERO-CRD42015025827.
CONCLUSION: Adding cryotherapy at -110∘C to exercise therapy led to significantly reduced disease activity expressed in BASDAI, compared with exercise therapy alone. PMID: 31594196 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This article outlines the role of the clinical nurse specialist in establishing a Scotland-wide national designated service for prostate cryotherapy for patients with radiation-recurrent prostate cancer. The service was established in 2009 and provides prostate cryotherapy across Scotland. This article reviews and discusses the challenges involved in setting up a new service for tertiary treatment as well as highlighting the key achievements of the service. The challenges have included introducing the cryotherapy procedure in a safe and quality assured manner, developing and refining the referral process, educating both pr...
