Passive modalities, such as whole-body cryotherapy (WBC), have the potential to enhance both recovery and preparation. Whole-body cryotherapy has generally been used within a recovery setting after competition or strenuous training for athletes, and in clinical settings for the general population. However, the acute hormonal, anti-inflammatory, perceptual and psychological ...

Hepatic hemangioma is common among benign liver tumors and usually grows slowly. About 50–70% of hepatic hemangiomas are asymptomatic, and management is not necessary; however, management should be considered in symptomatic patients. The optimal management of symptomatic hepatic hemangioma depends on multiple factors. Invasive management of symptomatic hepatic hemangioma mainly consists of surgery and interventional radiology, including transarterial embolization, ablation, percutaneous sclerotherapy, and percutaneous argon–helium cryotherapy. Although both surgery and interventional radiology are promising in ...

AbstractSarcoma is rare and heterogenous with various subtypes having a different prognostic. Desmoid is a tumour with a local aggressiveness; GIST with KIT mutation responds massively to target treatment as IMATINIB, whereas soft tissue sarcoma and leiomyosarcoma are very aggressive with poor response to systemic therapies. Interventional radiology plays an important role in the diagnosis of sarcomas with image-guided percutaneous core needle biopsy being the most commonly used biopsy technique in the diagnosis of sarcomas. Biopsy access routes discussed with the surgeon, and skin access is tattooed. Surgery is a mainstay...

Abstract Chronic tendon injuries are common athletic and occupational injuries that account for many physician visits. Tendons have a complex biology that provides a unique combination of strength, flexibility, and elasticity but also predisposes them to injury. The term tendinopathy is preferred to tendinitis because of the presence of a disordered and degenerative healing process-not inflammation-in the pathologic tendon. Insidious onset of pain and dysfunction is a common presentation for most tendinopathies, and patients typically report that a change in activity affected the use of the tendon. Diagnosis is ty...

In this study, we present two patients with SKs located on their face and neck who received in-office treatment with 40% Hydrogen Peroxide Topical Solution (Eskata™, HP40), a new FDA-approved topical therapy that has demonstrated efficacy in phase 3 trials. Compared to non-topical, more invasive techniques, HP40 may lead to less pigmentary changes, and may be more efficacious for SKs on the face and neck. Both patients received two treatment courses of HP40, which resulted in positive therapeutic outcomes, including the absence of scarring and pigmentary changes. In addition to the case presentations, we will discuss...
