Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe surgical management of breast cancer has been marked by a therapeutic de-escalation from radical surgery to breast conservation and from axillary curage to sentinel lymph node sampling. With regard to breast surgery, the de-escalation of treatment has been largely due to organized screening, which has made it possible to diagnose tumors of smaller volume or at an earlier stage. The indications for conservative surgery have been broadened by the addition of radiotherapy on one hand, and the introduction of ad...
Demonstrate the feasibility of Trans Rectal High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment in patients presenting rectosigmoid endometriosis
CONCLUSION: The therapeutic effect of HIFU on NNEDV is not only related to the itching degree, age, or disease course but is also closely related to lesion location as well as anxiety and depression in patients.PMID:34620032 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2021.1985628
Curr Oncol. 2021 Aug 29;28(5):3347-3372. doi: 10.3390/curroncol28050290.ABSTRACTThe number of patients with bone metastasis increases as medical management and surgery improve the overall survival of patients with cancer. Bone metastasis can cause skeletal complications, including bone pain, pathological fractures, spinal cord or nerve root compression, and hypercalcemia. Before initiation of treatment for bone metastasis, it is important to exclude primary bone malignancy, which would require a completely different therapeutic approach. It is essential to select surgical methods considering the patient's prognosis, qualit...
