Cutaneous cryosurgery has become a commonly performed outpatient procedure because of the combination of its safety, effectiveness, low cost, ease of use, lack of need for injectable anesthetic, and good cosmetic results. Cryosurgery may be performed in the outpatient setting using dipstick, spray, or cryoprobe techniques to treat a variety of benign, premalignant, and malignant skin lesions with high cure rates. Benign lesions such as common and plantar warts, anogenital condylomas, molluscum contagiosum, and se...

This study hypothesized that PCS with propofol during FB would facilitate early recovery, with similar bronchoscopist and patient satisfaction compared with nurse-controlled sedation (NCS) with midazolam. A total of 150 patients were randomized 1:1:1 into a control group (premedication with morphine-scopolamine and NCS with midazolam), PCS-MS group (premedication with morphine-scopolamine and PCS with propofol), and PCS-G group (premedication with glycopyrronium and PCS with propofol). Results: The procedures included transbronchial biopsy, transbronchial needle aspiration, cryotherapy/biopsy, and/or multistation endobr...

Authors: TrĨko K Abstract Patients with multiple actinic keratoses are frequently treated with topical agents such as imiquimod, an immune-response modifying agent. Adverse effects associated with imiquimod therapy are mainly limited to the application site and include erythema, crusting, scaling and ulceration. Systemic adverse reactions, such as erythema multiforme are rare. Here we report a case of a 77- years old patient that developed erythema multiforme after treatment of actinic keratoses with imiquimod. Cessation of imiquimod and treatment with local corticosteroids led to rapid regression of erythema mult...

Skin tags are common, benign skin growths that hang from the surface of the skin on a thin piece of tissue called a stalk. They are made up of many components, including fat, collagen fibers, and sometimes nerve cells and small blood vessels. It’s possible that these collagen fibers and blood vessels become wrapped up inside a layer of skin, leading to the formation of a skin tag. The medical term for a skin tag is acrochordon, and they can also be referred to as soft fibromas or fibroepithelial polyps. Skin tags are frequently found in areas of friction on the skin, such as the neck, underarms, under the breast...

Reggie Dye went 15 years without seeing a physician, in part because he had always been incredibly healthy. He regularly does high-intensity worksouts, enjoys hiking, golf, and can't remember the last time he even had a cold. But a preventative health evaluation incentive program his company offered in 2016 taught him that even the healthiest individuals are not immune to prostate cancer. After two prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening tests, followed by additional testing, Dye was diagnosed with localized prostate cancer. At first, he was given the choice of active surveillance, als...
