ConclusionsThis study showed that HT interruptions and discontinuation were common, often associated with HT-related symptoms. Clinicians caring for breast cancer patients on HT should monitor closely for treatment-emergent symptoms, especially women with pre-existing disorders, and support them to continue therapy through aggressive symptom management and other patient-centered approaches.

MODERN MANAGEMENT of postoperative pain should be multimodal and encompass acute pain suppression and prevention of chronic pain; that is, postoperative pain persisting for at least 3 months (International Classification of Diseases definition).1 Cardiac surgery is no exception, with a prevalence of persistent pain estimated from 27% to 41%.2 A reduction in the incidence of persistent postoperative pain, with the use of regional anesthesia or local anesthetic infusions, has been reported for thoracotomy, caesarean section and breast cancer surgery.

CONCLUSIONS: Qigong research publications have been increasing gradually. Reports on study types, participants, Qigong Intervention, and outcomes are diverse and inconsistent. There is an urgent need to develop a set of reporting standards for various interventions of Qigong. Further trials of high methodological quality with sufficient sample size and real world studies are needed to verify the effects of Qigong in health and disease management.

The future of healthcare is shaping up in front of our very eyes with advances in digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, VR/AR, 3D-printing, robotics or nanotechnology. We have to familiarize with the latest developments in order to be able to control technology and not the other way around. The future of healthcare lies in working hand-in-hand with technology and healthcare workers have to embrace emerging technologies in order to stay relevant in the coming years. Be bold, curious and informed! Are you afraid that robots will take over the jobs of nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals? Are y...

Summary: Chronic radiation-induced osteomyelitis/necrosis of the rib was rarely encountered in breast cancer patients even before the era of breast-conserving therapy. Few studies have focused on how to evaluate the extent of rib osteomyelitis for surgical management. A 78-year-old woman who had received radiation therapy after a radical mastectomy due to breast cancer 30 years ago manifested a rib pain and chest skin ulcers. Because chest magnetic resonance imaging failed to visualize osteomyelitis of the rib, a wide-ranged rib resection was initially planned considering her radiation field. An additional imaging, 3-dim...

This study was a first of its kind. It involved a head-to-head comparison of acupuncture and cognitive behavioral therapy, enrolled patients with many different types of cancer and included nearly 30% minority participants. Previous studies focused solely on breast cancer and included 90% white participants. Limitations of the previous research make it difficult to determine if the results are applicable to patients with other cancers and people of diverse backgrounds. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acupuncture Are Effective Acupuncture and cognitive behavioral therapy treatments produced clinically meaningful reduction...

This study not only provides biological evidence to support the use of duloxetine as the first standard CIPN drug but will also lead to potential new targets for CIPN drug development. Introduction A major dose-limiting complication of chemotherapy is chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). The greatest contributors to CIPN are taxanes (e.g., paclitaxel) and platinum-based (e.g., oxaliplatin) treatments (Krukowski et al., 2015). Paclitaxel (PTX) can effectively treat several of the most common cancers including breast cancer, lung cancer, and ovarian cancer (Ewertz et al., 2015; Cetinkaya-Fisgin et al., ...
