Endoscopic full-thickness resection: an unexpected juncture (with video)
A 70-year-old woman underwent colonoscopy because of a positive result from a fecal occult blood test and a family history of colorectal cancer. Her comorbidities were osteoporosis and an appendectomy 40 years earlier. A 15-mm flat polyp (type 0-IIa) was noted at the appendiceal orifice (A). Biopsy specimens showed tubular adenoma with low-grade dysplasia. Because of the position of the adenoma, endoscopic full-thickness resection (ETFR) was undertaken with a full-thickness resection device (FTRD, Ovesco Endoscopy, Tubingen, Germany) with the use of mechanical traction and additional suction (B).
CONCLUSION: App-based facial training offers attractive opportunities to motivate patients for improved adherence to treatment, which could hypothetically lead to a better outcome. Evaluation of this question is planned in a clinical trial after completion of the development. PMID: 32495061 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Structural prevention measures in addition to behavioral measures enable a reduction of the cancer risk caused by UV radiation. The aim must be to establish these measures nationwide for the entire population. PMID: 32494842 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Early detection of MRSA colonization and eradication are necessary for rehabilitation. Management of skin diseases due to infectious diseases within the framework of OD is presented. PMID: 32494841 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study sought to determine the incidence rates of all gynecologic, including peritoneal, malignancies in the U.S. Active Duty population compared to the general US population as reported in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program database. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gynecologic cancers diagnosed in U.S. Active Duty women aged 20-59 between 2004 and 2013 were retrospectively ascertained. Cancer cases were identified in both the Automated Central Tumor Registry and the Military Health System Data Repository. All cases in Automated Central Tumor Registry plus cases recorded in Military Health System Data R...

CONCLUSIONS: Our data provide new insights into the biology driving metastasis in PTCs and highlight how lncRNAs cooperate with coding transcripts to sustain these processes. PMID: 32495722 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Fusion genes were the most common genetic cause of pediatric PTCs. Fusion gene positive PTCs showed more aggressive behavior than fusion gene negative PTCs. Several novel rearrangements were identified. Fusion genes seem to be a molecular marker number one in pediatric PTC patients. PMID: 32495721 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
LUNG CANCER symptoms include difficulty breathing, headaches, and persistent chest pain. But you could also be at risk of an advanced tumour if you develop a subtle sign on your eyes. Could you be at risk of lung cancer?
Follow me on Twitter @RobShmerling Let us sing the praises of good medical screening tests. These are the tests that can detect medical problems before they become untreatable and before they cause complications or even death. Even better are those screening tests that detect “predisease” — abnormalities that aren’t dangerous on their own but can lead to problems later. According to the US Preventive Services Task Force, relatively few screening tests are considered good enough to routinely recommend for adults, including mammography for breast cancer (women) Pap smear for cervical cancer (women) b...
