The impact of using intraoperative photodynamic diagnosis on the prognosis of bladder cancer.

CONCLUSION:  The use of hexaminolevulinate significantly reduces the risk of residual tumours compared with conventional TURB. The PDD technique significantly improved 3- and 12-month recurrence-free survival, especially in low and medium-risk tumours, and 1-year progression-free survival, especially in high-risk tumours.

PROSTATE cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK and treatment outcomes depend greatly on how early it is caught. The warning signs associated with the disease are associated with the bladder and men who experience a certain issue in cold weather should not rule out the disease.

Conclusions: Easy-to-use eCRFs were developed and included in the electronic patient file system. This registration tool was implemented in 7 hospitals, 6 of which are still using it today. The register harvests important clinical data, while performing routine clinical practice. The data will be used to analyze real-life data of NMIBC patients, to challenge the existing guidelines, to create novel risk stratification tools, and to develop, monitor and validate quality parameters for NMIBC management.

We present a case of GCA in a patient who presented with jaw claudication and occlusal pain. A 78-year-old man visited our department with left-sided facial pain associated with mastication. He also reported spontaneous left-sided facial pain and diminished vision. Based on his age, his new-onset left-sided headache, and a high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, he was diagnosed with GCA with immediate initiation of prednisolone (PSL) therapy. His fever subsided the following day. A temporal artery biopsy (TAB) was performed 7 days after hospitalization and showed a false-negative result. His left-sided facial pain and headac...
