Combined Long-Term Androgen Deprivation and Pelvic Radiotherapy in the Post-operative Management of Pathologically Defined High-Risk Prostate Cancer Patients: Results of the Prospective Phase II McGill 0913 Study
Conclusions: Combining PBRT, PLNRT, and LT-ADT had an acceptable PFS in patients with significant post-operative risk factors for recurrence. While therapy was well-tolerated, long-term hypogonadism was a substantial risk. Further investigations are needed to determine if this combination is beneficial.Trial registration: NCT01255891.

Treatment strategies to prevent and reduce gynecomastia and/or breast pain caused by antiandrogen therapy for prostate cancer
ConclusionsProphylactic RT as well as daily TMX can significantly reduce the incidence of gynecomastia and/or breast pain. TMX appears to be an effective alternative to RT also as a  therapeutic treatment in the presence of gynecomastia but its side effects and off-label use must be considered.

Comparative study of spironolactone and eplerenone in management of ascites in patients of cirrhosis of liver
Introduction: The present study was conducted to compare the efficacy and side effects of Spironolactone and Eplerenone in management of ascites due to liver cirrhosis. Materials and methods: 105 patients of ascites with liver cirrhosis were randomized into three groups of 35 patients each. Group I was given Spironolactone 100 mg, group II was given Eplerenone 100 mg and group III was given Eplerenone 50 mg. All patients were put on salt-restricted diet (less than or equal to 2 g of sodium) and no loop diuretics were used. Patients were followed after 7 days from the baseline and then biweekly for the period of three ...

[A survey of Belgian practice for non-malignant diseases].
Abstract Two prior surveys were carried out in 1995 and 1999 to evaluate the use of radiotherapy in the treatment of non-malignant disease. In 2016, the same questionnaire was used and sent to the 24 centers of the country: 22 responded. A major decrease was observed in the number of patients treated: 360 in 2016 in contrast to 954 in 1999 and 1113 in 1995. The most frequent indications remain the prevention of heterotopic bone formation, keloids or gynecomastia. A new indication was observed: trigeminal nevralgia treated with radiosurgery. Two frequent indications in the past disappeared: the prevention of corona...

Prevalence and Management of Hypokalemia in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients in Qatar.
Authors: Hamad A, Hussain ME, Elsanousi S, Ahmed H, Navalta L, Lonappan V, Alali F Abstract Introduction: Hypokalemia is common in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD). It is associated with increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality. Treatment usually includes oral potassium supplements, which are poorly tolerated. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of hypokalemia in PD patients in Qatar and to improve treatment measures. Methods: All PD patients in Qatar with persistent hypokalemia and on potassium supplement were included. We performed a root cause analysis, and a management pathway was cre...

The pleura and the endocrine system.
Abstract The functioning of the pleura and the endocrine system are not entirely independent of each other. Some hormones can reach a greater concentration in the pleural exudate than in the blood. However, the clinical significance of this finding remains unknown. In some circumstances, hormonal changes are responsible for pathological manifestations in the pleura. Hypothyroidism is one of the most common diseases that can cause a pleural effusion, likely resulting from alterations in capillary permeability. The presence of ectopic endometrial tissue within the lung parenchyma, pleura, pericardium or diaphragm is...

Causes and Metabolic Consequences of Gynecomastia in Adult Patients.
Conclusion: The development of GM in adults might be an important symptom of an underlying gonadal disease. Moreover, it could be associated with an increased risk of metabolic disturbances. Our results support the need of detailed laboratory and hormonal investigations in patients with GM including targeted screening for metabolic disturbances. Further longitudinal studies are needed to evaluate the long-term consequences of sex hormones imbalance on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in adults with GM.

Barriers to the Effective Management of Gynecomastia in Adolescents
Discussion: High surgical success rate, coupled with significant improvements in psychosocial functioning suggests that mastectomy is a highly effective intervention for adolescents with gynecomastia. However, due to vague and inadequate coverage and evaluation criteria surgery is often not performed. This paper offers a framework for developing a quantitative system by which to evaluate surgical candidates by adopting well-established guidelines currently in use for reduction mammoplasties and suggests further analysis into a cost/benefit analysis for coverage of the procedure.

M166 estrogen-dependent angioedema responsive to anastrozole in a male with familial hyperestrogenemia and hereditary cancer risk
A 44-year-old man was evaluated for recurrent angioedema manifested as more than 10 discrete episodes with swelling of the posterior pharynx and uvula, without urticaria, that would subside spontaneously over 24 hours. These episodes were first noted 2 years ago, were worsened by alcohol, and were not responsive to antihistamines. Medical history was significant for hyperestrogenism, that worsened with testosterone treatment for infertility. His primary family history revealed a father and brother with gynecomastia, a mother with endometrial cancer, and a sister with Lynch syndrome. (Source: Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)

Klinefelter's syndrome with systemic lupus erythematosus and atrial fibrillation.
We describe a 65-year-old man who presented with arthralgia, reduced body hair and gynecomastia. He showed severe pancytopaenia. Laboratory examination revealed high follicle-stimulating hormone, low testosterone and oestradiol, elevated antinuclear antibodies, anti-dsDNA and ESR levels, as well as low complement levels. An electrocardiogram showed atrial fibrillation. Computed tomography and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry showed pleural effusion and osteoporosis. Chromosome analysis revealed 47, XXY karyotype. The unifying diagnosis was therefore Klinefelter's syndrome (KS) with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), with ...

Lavender products associated with premature thelarche and prepubertal gynecomastia: Case reports and EDC activities.
CONCLUSIONS: We now report cases of premature thelarche that resolved upon cessation from lavender-containing fragrance exposure commonly used in Hispanic communities. The precise developmental basis for such conditions could be multifactorial. In vitro demonstration of estrogenic and anti-androgenic properties of essential oil components suggests in these cases essential oils could be considered as a possible source and supports a possible link with idiopathic prepubertal breast development. Questions remain whether lavender oil estrogenic potency is sufficient to cause these effects. PMID: 31393563 [PubMed - as supp...

In this retrospective cohort study, we evaluated TV and testis US role in the diagnostic workup of andrological patients.

Vacuum-assisted minimally invasive surgery —An innovative method for the operative treatment of gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is the most common benign enlargement of the mammary gland and adipose tissue in males. Because a feminine-looking chest contour can bring severe psychologic burden to patients, subcutaneous mastectomy has become the standard treatment for this condition. Conventional open surgery causes conspicuous scarring that may affect the appearance of the breast. We provide a novel surgical operative for the treatment of gynecomastia. (Source: Surgery)
