Role of intermittent pneumatic compression in the treatment of breast cancer-related lymphoedema: a randomized controlled trial.

CONCLUSION: Intermittent pneumatic compression seems to add no benefit when combined with complex decongestive treatment of lymphoedema, but, may be functional in reducing the sensations of heaviness and tightness for the patients with pitting oedema.

CONCLUSIONS: Awareness of possible repercussions of the celiac trunk stenosis to peripancreatic arteries should be elevated. Restoration of physiological blood flow by removing pathologic anatomy should be performed. Since there is no correlation between the size of a visceral aneurysm and the risk of rupture, having a high postrupture mortality, pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysms should be treated even if asymptomatic. Surgical treatment remains the mainstay treatment of the Dunbar syndrome complicated by visceral aneurysms. PMID: 31961777 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionHigh levels of lifestyle-related cancer-risk behaviors were found in most of the Hong Kong construction workers studied. The present study contributes to understanding how cancer-related lifestyle risk behaviors cluster among construction workers and relative impact factors of risk behaviors. It is essential to tailor health behavior interventions focused on multiple risk behaviors among different groups for further enlarging the effects on cancer prevention.

We report one case, in which the patient presented to the emergency department with lower urinary tract symptoms, fever and consumptive syndrome. Acute prostatitis was initially suspected, but subsequently prostate adenocarcinoma was diagnosed.This case enables us to consider the possibility of prostate adenocarcinoma as the diagnose in patients with fever of unknown origin, and the role of procalcitonin to rule out the presence of infection.

CooperbergAbstractBackgroundActive surveillance (AS)/watchful waiting (WW) strategy for localized prostate cancer (PCa) is increasingly and broadly endorsed as a preferred option for initial treatment of men with very low- and low-risk PCa, but outcomes can be difficult to analyze in traditional, population-based registries. The recently released Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Prostate with WW dataset provides an op...

DiscussionIn view of the high prevalence of breast cancer among women, the implementation of a specific protocol of Pilates solo and belly dancing for patients with breast cancer is important, considering the necessity to improve their physical and psychological quality of life. Pilates solo and belly dancing are two types of physical activity that involve mental and physical concentration, music, upper limb movements, femininity, and social involvement. An intervention with these two physical activities could offer options of supportive care to women with breast cancer undergoing treatment, with the aim being to improve p...
