Cutaneous Cryosurgery for Common Skin Conditions.

Cutaneous Cryosurgery for Common Skin Conditions. Am Fam Physician. 2020 Apr 01;101(7):399-406 Authors: Clebak KT, Mendez-Miller M, Croad J Abstract Cryosurgery is the application of freezing temperatures to achieve the destruction of tissue. 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 seborrheic keratoses can be treated with cryotherapy. Basal and squamous cell carcinomas with low-risk features may be treated with cryosurgery. Contraindications to cryosurgery include neoplasms with indefinite margins or when pathology is desired, basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas with high-risk features, and prior adverse local reaction or hypersensitivity to cryosurgery. Potential adverse effects include bleeding, blistering, edema, paresthesia, and pain and less commonly include tendon rupture, scarring, alopecia, atrophy, and hypopigmentation.

Authors: Dietz A, Wichmann G, Kuhnt T, Wiegand S Abstract Patients with locoregionally advanced laryngeal and hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (LHSCC) comprise two broad groups: those who are candidates for functional larynx preservation (LP) with avoidance of ablative surgery and those who are not. Currently, treatment depends on the patient's needs and wishes, the experience and recommendation of the surgeon, the philosophy of the institution, etc. The milestone VA trial established non-surgical LP in advanced LHSCC in the 1990s using induction chemotherapy (IC) with PF (cisplatin, P, plus 5‑fluorou...

Authors: Della Corte A, Ratti F, Monfardini L, Marra P, Gusmini S, Salvioni M, Venturini M, Cipriani F, Aldrighetti L, Cobelli F Abstract Background: Based on patient and tumor characteristics, some authors favor laparoscopic microwave ablation (LMWA) over the percutaneous approach (PMWA) for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We compared the two techniques in terms of technique efficacy, local tumor progression (LTP) and complication rates.Study design: A retrospective comparative analysis was performed on 91 consecutive patients (102 HCC tumors) who underwent PMWA or LMWA between October 2014 and May 20...
