Cryosurgery for common skin lesions. Treatment in family physicians' offices. (1/518)

OBJECTIVE: To review the principles of use, common techniques, and effectiveness of cryosurgery for common skin lesions that can be treated by family physicians in their offices. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: MEDLINE and the Cochrane Database controlled trials register (1998 version) were searched. Much of the evidence for the effectiveness of cryosurgery or cryotherapy is based on of cryosurgery for treating common warts, external genital warts, lentigines, and basal cell carcinomas. Many of the trials reviewed were conducted in specialty clinics and, therefore, the results might not apply accurately to family practice. MAIN MESSAGE: Evidence from case report and series suggests that cryosurgery is effective for actinic keratoses, seborrheic keratoses, dermatofibroma, keloids, molluscum contagiosum, and benign nevi. Randomized comparative trials show that, for external genital warts, cryosurgery is more effective than podophyllin treatment, better than or equal to trichloroacetic acid, but less effective than electrodesiccation or surgical removal. Prospective randomized trials of cryosurgery for common warts showed that weekly cryotherapy produced more rapid cures, but the overall cure rate depended on number of treatments. Two freeze-thaw cycles and paring before freezing improved the cure rate for plantar warts.  (+info)

Interobserver agreement for grating acuity and letter acuity assessment in 1- to 5.5-year-olds with severe retinopathy of prematurity. (2/518)

PURPOSE: To evaluate interobserver test-retest reliability of the Teller Acuity Card procedure for assessment of grating acuity at ages 1, 2, 3.5, 4.5, and 5.5 years, for HOTV letter acuity at 3.5 and 4.5 years, and for Early-Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) letter acuity at 5.5 years in the multicenter study of Cryotherapy for Retinopathy of Prematurity (CRYO-ROP). METHODS: Subjects were the 73 participants in the CRYO-ROP study who had acuity assessed at one or more ages by two of the seven study visual acuity testers as part of a quality control procedure. All subjects had birth weights of less than 1251 g, and all had severe (threshold) ROP in one or both eyes. RESULTS: For sighted eyes, interobserver agreement for grating acuity (across all five test ages) was 0.5 octave or better in 57% of eyes and 1.0 octave or better in 85% of eyes. Interobserver agreement for letter acuity (3.5-, 4.5-, and 5.5-year test ages) was 0.5 octave or better in 71% of eyes and 1.0 octave or better in 93% of eyes. For all eyes (sighted and blind), Kendall rank correlation coefficients (Tau) were 0.86, 0.83, and 0.94 for grating, HOTV, and ETDRS acuity, respectively. Kappa statistics on data from all eyes indicated excellent interobserver agreement for grating, HOTV, and ETDRS acuity (0.73, 0.80, and 0.84, respectively). Interobserver agreement was not related to age or to severity of retinal residua of ROP. CONCLUSIONS: Excellent interobserver agreement for grating acuity measurements and for letter acuity measurements was obtained. Results suggest that with careful training and implementation of quality control procedures, high reliability of visual acuity results is possible in clinical populations of young children.  (+info)

Surgical treatment and other regional treatments for colorectal cancer liver metastases. (3/518)

The liver is the most common site of distant metastasis from colorectal cancer. About one-fourth of patients with liver metastases from colorectal cancer have no other sites of metastasis and can be treated with regional therapies directed toward their liver tumors. Surgical resection of colorectal cancer liver metastases can result in a 24%-38% five-year survival, but only a minority of patients are candidates for resection. Other regional therapies such as cryosurgery, radiofrequency ablation, and hepatic intra-arterial chemotherapy may be offered to patients with unresectable but isolated liver metastases. The efficacy of these treatments is still being determined. For most patients with spread of metastatic colorectal cancer beyond the liver, systemic chemotherapy rather than regional therapy is a more appropriate option.  (+info)

Surgery for postinfarction ventricular tachycardia in the pre-implantable cardioverter defibrillator era: early and long term outcomes in 100 consecutive patients. (4/518)

OBJECTIVE: To report outcome following surgery for postinfarction ventricular tachycardia undertaken in patients before the use of implantable defibrillators. DESIGN: A retrospective review, with uniform patient selection criteria and surgical and mapping strategy throughout. Complete follow up. Long term death notification by OPCS (Office of Population Censuses and Statistics) registration. SETTING: Tertiary referral centre for arrhythmia management. PATIENTS: 100 consecutive postinfarction patients who underwent map guided endocardial resection at this hospital in the period 1981-91 for drug refractory ventricular tachyarrhythmias. RESULTS: Emergency surgery was required for intractable arrhythmias in 28 patients, and 32 had surgery within eight weeks of infarction ("early"). Surgery comprised endocardial resections in all, aneurysmectomy in 57, cryoablations in 26, and antiarrhythmic ventriculotomies in 11. Twenty five patients died < 30 days after surgery, 21 of cardiac failure. This high mortality reflects the type of patients included in the series. Only 12 received antiarrhythmic drugs after surgery. Perioperative mortality was related to preoperative left ventricular function and the context of surgery. Mortality rates for elective surgery more than eight weeks after infarction, early surgery, emergency surgery, and early emergency surgery were 18%, 31%, 46%, and 50%, respectively. Actuarial survival rates at one, three, five, and 10 years after surgery were 66%, 62%, 57%, and 35%. CONCLUSIONS: Surgery offers arrhythmia abolition at a risk proportional to the patient's preoperative risk of death from ventricular arrhythmias. The long term follow up results suggest a continuing role for surgery in selected patients even in the era of catheter ablation and implantable defibrillators.  (+info)

Hepatic cryoablation, but not radiofrequency ablation, results in lung inflammation. (5/518)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of 35% hepatic cryoablation with a similar degree of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) on lung inflammation, nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) activation, and production of NF-kappaB dependent cytokines. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Multisystem injury, including acute lung injury, is a severe complication associated with hepatic cryoablation of 30% to 35% or more of liver parenchyma, but this complication has not been reported with RFA. METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats underwent 35% hepatic cryoablation or RFA and were killed at 1, 2, and 6 hours. Liver and lung tissue were freeze-clamped for measurement of NF-kappaB activation, which was detected by electrophoretic mobility shift assay. Serum concentrations of tumor necrosis factor alpha and macrophage inflammatory protein 2 were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Histologic studies of pulmonary tissue and electron microscopy of ablated liver tissue were compared among treatment groups. RESULTS: Histologic lung sections after cryoablation showed multiple foci of perivenular inflammation, with activated lymphocytes, foamy macrophages, and neutrophils. In animals undergoing RFA, inflammatory foci were not present. NF-kappaB activation was detected at 1 hour in both liver and lung tissue samples of animals undergoing cryoablation but not after RFA, and serum cytokine levels were significantly elevated in cryoablation versus RFA animals. Electron microscopy of cryoablation-treated liver tissue demonstrated disruption of the hepatocyte plasma membrane with extension of intact hepatocyte organelles into the space of Disse; RFA-treated liver tissue demonstrated coagulative destruction of hepatocyte organelles within an intact plasma membrane. To determine the stimulus for systemic inflammation, rats treated with cryoablation had either immediate resection of the ablated segment or delayed resection after a 15-minute thawing interval. Immediate resection of the cryoablated liver tissue prevented NF-kappaB activation and lung injury; however, pulmonary inflammatory changes were present when as little as a 15-minute thaw interval preceded hepatic resection. CONCLUSIONS: Hepatic cryoablation, but not RFA, induces NF-kappaB activation in the nonablated liver and lung and is associated with acute lung injury. Lung inflammation is associated with the thawing phase of cryoablation and may be related to soluble mediator(s) released from the cryoablated tissue. These findings correlate the clinical observation of an increased incidence of multisystem injury, including adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), after cryoablation but not RFA.  (+info)

Cryosurgery for chronic injuries of the cutaneous nerve in the upper limb. Analysis of a new open technique. (6/518)

We have treated six patients with chronic pain following nerve injury using a cryosurgical probe. All had a significant return of hand function and improvement of pain during a mean follow-up of 13.5 months. Open visualisation of the injured nervous tissue is essential for patients undergoing this technique. Four patients regained normal sensation in the dermatome of the previously injured nerve.  (+info)

Cryoablation of incessant ventricular tachycardia: case report and long-term follow-up. (7/518)

We report the case of a 52-year-old man who had incessant ventricular tachycardia despite treatment with antiarrhythmic agents. Placement of an implantable cardioverter/defibrillator, radiofrequency ablation, and antitachycardia pacing were ineffective. He underwent intraoperative arrhythmia mapping and cryoablation at our institution. Eighteen months later, he remained free of arrhythmia. He was in New York Heart Association functional class II with an ejection fraction of 30%.  (+info)

Limited posterior left atrial cryoablation in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation undergoing valvular heart sugery. (8/518)

OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate whether a limited surgical cryoablation of the posterior region of the left atrium was safe and effective in the cure of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with associated valvular heart disease. BACKGROUND: Extensive surgical ablation of AF is a complex and risky procedure. The posterior region of the left atrium seems to be important in the initiation and maintenance of AF. METHODS: In 32 patients with chronic AF who underwent heart valve surgery, linear cryolesions connecting the four pulmonary veins and the posterior mitral annulus were performed. Eighteen patients with AF who underwent valvular surgery but refused cryoablation were considered as the control group. RESULTS: Sinus rhythm (SR) was restored in 25 (78%) of 32 patients immediately after the operation. The cryoablation procedure required 20 +/- 4 min. There were no intraoperative and perioperative complications. During the hospital period, one patient died of septicemia. Thirty-one patients reached a minimum of nine months of follow-up. Two deaths occurred but were unrelated to the procedure. Twenty (69%) of 29 patients remained in SR with cryoablation alone, and 26 (90%) of 29 patients with cryoablation, drugs and radiofrequency ablation. Three (10%) of 29 patients remained in chronic AF. Right and left atrial contractility was evident in 24 (92%) of 26 patients in SR. In control group, two deaths occurred, and SR was present in only four (25%) of 16 patients. CONCLUSIONS: Linear cryoablation with lesions connecting the four pulmonary veins and the mitral annulus is effective in restoration and maintenance of SR in patients with heart valve disease and chronic AF. Limited left atrial cryoablation may represent a valid alternative to the maze procedure, reducing myocardial ischemic time and risk of bleeding.  (+info)

The present invention is of systems and methods for MI-guided cryosurgery. The systems enable a surgeon positioned next to a patient and within an MRI, magnetic environment both to monitor progress of a cryosurgical intervention by observing MRI images of the intervention in real time, and to fully control aspects of operation of a cryosurgery Apparatus by remotely controlling a fluid supply source positioned external to that magnetic environment, which fluid supplies cryogenic fluids to cryoprobes operable within that magnetic environment, thereby enabling real-time MRI-guided control of a cryoablation process. A preferred embodiment enables calculation and display of borders of an ablation volume surrounding a cooled cryoprobe in real time, and, further enables automatic control of elements of a cryoablation procedure, which elements are triggered when shape and position of that calculated ablation volume are found to bear a predefined relationship to the shape and position of a predefined treatment

A comprehensive computational framework to simulate heat transfer during the freezing process in prostate cancer cryosurgery is presented. Tissues are treated as nonideal materials wherein phase transition occurs over a temperature range, thermophysical properties are temperature dependent and heating due to blood flow and metabolism are included. Boundary conditions were determined at the surfaces of the commercially available cryoprobes and urethral warmer by experimental study of temperature combined with a mathematical optimization process. For simulations, a suitable computational geometry was designed based on MRI imaging data of a real prostate. An enthalpy formulation-based numerical solution was performed for a prescribed surgical protocol to mimic a clinical freezing process. This computational framework allows for the individual planning of cryosurgical procedures and objective assessment of the effectiveness of prostate cryosurgery.. ...

After the heat exchange is pre-cooled, a primary refrigerant stream can be passed through the cooled heat exchanger and thereafter expanded within a tissue-contacting portion of the probe assembly to achieve very low temperatures, typically minus 100 C. or lower. After cooling, the refrigerant stream may be passed through the probe assembly with no or partial expansion to warm the tissue-contacting surface of the probe. A probe sheath can be used to provide sterility.
A cryosurgical instrument comprises a cooling tip operable to be cooled by a flow of a cryogenic fluid within the tip; and a fluid transfer chamber having a fluid inlet for receiving cryogenic fluid, a first fluid outlet communicating with the cooling tip for supplying cryogenic fluid to the cooling tip, and a second fluid outlet communicating with an atmospheric air vent.
One radiologist performed all cryoablation procedures after the diagnosis of a renal tumor was made according to testing. The day before the procedure patients were admitted to have blood work performed to determine their current renal function and hemoglobin. The procedure was performed with CT guidance. The cryoprobes were placed around the edges of the tumor and went through a 10 minute freeze followed by a 10 minute thaw and another 10 minute freeze cycle. After the procedure patients were placed on bed rest for at least 4 hours. The next morning blood work was performed to compare to preop levels. Most patients were discharged the following morning. Technical success meaning completeness of the freeze cycle and ice ball extension of 5cm past the tumor margin was present in all patients. Follow up included 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after visits. Follow up included tests to check the function of the kidneys and a CT or MRI exam. Seven patients had signs of complications making ...
A randomized controlled trial has found that cryoprobes, which are tools that apply extreme cold to tissues, are better than conventional forceps for performing so-called transbronchial lung biopsies in patients who are being assessed for certain lung conditions. Cryoprobes allowed for improved diagnosis of interstitial lung diseases because they collected larger sized samples that were of higher quality.. "These positive results are very promising although larger multicenter randomized trials are required to confirm the benefits and safety profile for this technique," said Dr. Virginia Pajares, the lead author of the Respirology study.. ...
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the safety and morbidity associated with cryosurgical ablation in patients with soft tissue sarcomas of the extremity.. OUTLINE: All patients undergo 1 session of cryoablation. Patients with high-grade sarcoma receive systemic chemotherapy 10-14 days after cryoablation at the discretion of the consulting medical oncologist, and undergo surgery 2-3 weeks following chemotherapy. Patients with low-grade sarcoma and those with high-grade sarcoma who do not receive chemotherapy undergo surgery 4-6 weeks after cryoablation. Surgery for all patients consists of en bloc resection or amputation, with limb salvage attempted when feasible. Patients are followed weekly for 3 weeks.. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12 patients (approximately 6 patients with low-grade, high-risk sarcoma and 6 with high-grade sarcoma) will be entered over approximately 6 months. The study will be suspended for the following: vascular complication that requires surgical intervention for correction in 2 ...
Sixty-two cattle with vulval carcinoma of various sizes were treated by cryosurgery using double freeze-thaw cycles. A cure rate of 88.7 per cent was achieved. It was confirmed that the smaller the lesions the better the response and that in larger lesions failure occurred because of the difficulty in freezing the mass of neoplastic tissue rapidly to the lethal temperature of -25 degrees C using the cryosurgical unit available. It was concluded that, if instituted early in the clinical course of the disease, cryotherapy of bovine vulval carcinoma is superior to surgical excision but the cost of the equipment may be a limiting factor in its application in the field.. ...

SOLSTICE (Study of metastatic lung tumours targeted by interventional cryoablation evaluation) calls for two years of follow-up, with a projected enrolment of approximately 125 patients.. Researchers in Europe and the USA treated patients with up to six pulmonary metastases with CT-guided percutaneous cryoablation. The patients were followed-up at one week and three, six, 12, and 24 month and the investigators used the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) 4.03 to assess complications.. Eiken told delegates that 126 patients (64 males, 62 females; mean age 64 years) with 219 tumours were treated in 163 cryoablation procedures. Sixty-two percent (n=78) of the patients had one tumour, and 40% had two, or more. The mean tumour size was 1.2cm (0.4- 4.5cm).. The researchers used general anaesthesia in 69% (n=113) of procedures, conscious sedation in 29% (n=47), and local anaesthesia in 2% (n=3). The treatment time ranged from 30 to 225 minutes (mean time was 72.9 minutes).. There ...
The acute and chronic electrophysiological effects of a cryolesion produced in the left ventricle were studied in six dogs. All dogs had frequent ventricular premature beats (VPB) and five of six dogs had ventricular tachycardia during the first 4 days after the cryolesion; only one of the six dogs continued to have VPBs after 1 week, and this dog had identical VPBs before the creation of the cryolesion. Neither control dog had VPBs. Two additional dogs underwent epicardial and transmural mapping studies immediately after production of a cryolesion. VPBs in these animals were shown to originate at the border of the cryolesion. Epicardial activation sequence during normal sinus rhythm was not altered by the chronic cryolesion. The border zone of the chronic cryolesion was sharply demarcated with normal potentials recorded outside of the lesion and "extrinsic" potentials recorded within. ...
The use of cold for pain relief and as an anti-inflammatory has been known since the time of Hippocrates (460-377 B.C).[11] Since then there have been numerous accounts of ice used for pain relief including from the Ancient Egyptians and Avicenna of Persia (AD 982-1070).[12] Since 1899, Dr. Campbell White used refrigerants for treating a variety of conditions, including: lupus erythematosus, herpes zoster, chancroid, naevi, warts, varicose leg ulcers, carbuncles, carcinomas and epitheliomas. De Quervain successfully used of carbonic snow to treat bladder papillomas and bladder cancers in 1917. Dr Irving S Cooper, in 1913, progressed the field of cryotherapy by designing a liquid nitrogen probe capable of achieving temperatures of -196 °C, and utilizing it to treat of Parkinsons disease and previously inoperable cancer. Coopers cryoprobe advanced the practice of cryotherapy, which led to growing interest and practice of cryotherapy. In 1964, Dr. Cahan successfully used his liquid nitrogen ...
The treatment of thoracic aortic TSXN with endografts presents several technical challenges. The most important is the lack of a dedicated device for these patients. All commercially available aortic endografts, especially those for use in the thoracic aorta, were designed for treatment of aneurysms and dissections. These pathologies usually occur in older individuals with intrinsic arterial disease and larger diameter aortas. The smallest commercially available thoracic aortic endograft, the Gore TAG device (W.L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, AZ) is 26 mm diameter, and is not recommended for use in aortas less than 23 mm in diameter [12]. One concern with excessive endograft oversizing is in-folding of the graft material that prevents an adequate seal against the aortic intima. Of greater concern, graft collapse has been reported when this device is used in aortas smaller than 23 mm diameter to treat an aortic TSXN [2,6]. The mechanism of graft collapse is unclear but this complication has also ...
Early-stage primary breast tumors are treated surgically. The selection of lumpectomy, modified radical mastectomy, or another approach is balanced against the patients desire for breast conservation, the need for tumor-free margins in resected tissue, and the patients age, hormone receptor status, and other factors. Adjuvant radiation therapy decreases local recurrences, particularly for those who select lumpectomy. Adjuvant hormonal therapy and/or chemotherapy are added, depending on presence and number of involved nodes, hormone receptor status, and other factors. Treatment of metastatic disease includes surgery to remove the primary lesion and combination chemotherapy. Fibroadenomas are common, benign tumors of the breast that can either present as a palpable mass or a mammographic abnormality. These benign tumors have been frequently surgically excised to rule out a malignancy ...
A cryogenic catheter includes a flexible member having an elongate, thermally-transmissive region and a cryogenic fluid path through the flexible member to the thermally-transmissive region. The thermally-transmissive region can be deformable from a linear configuration to an arcuate configuration and can include multiple thermally-transmissive elements having a first side exposed to the cryogenic fluid path and a second side exposed to points exterior to the flexible member. The thermally-transmissive elements can be rigid or flexible longitudinal strips. Alternatively, annular, cylindrical, or wedge-shaped metallic structures disposed in a spaced-apart relationship can define the thermally-transmissive region. In other embodiments the thermally-transmissive region is defined by a helical coil that is at least partially embedded in the flexible member. The helical coil can also define at least a portion of the cryogenic fluid path through the flexible member and include a gas expansion or boiling

The open use of nitrogen requires exposition and generous fenestration of bone with a limited penetration of freezing [26]. Ideally, liqiud nitrogen should be applied while avoiding trauma to the surrounding healthy soft tissue to ensure the least additional destabilization of the bone when accessing the tumour. In contrast, earlier cryoprobes were less suitable for this purpose due to poor design and performance [4, 8]. Modern miniature cryoprobes, such as those used in this study, seem to be more suitable. Precise knowledge of the thermal properties of the probe is an absolute prerequisite, as is familiarity with the expansion of the cold zone over time because both the tumour and the tumour-infiltrated bone tissue bordering the tumour are left in place.. In order to determine the cooling performance of the cryoprobe, and in order to be able to follow the freezing process visually, freezing was first done as described by Saliken et al. (see below) and Rewcastle et al. [19, 20] in a ...

Generally, SCCs involving the facial skin of cats are locally invasive but late to metastasize. The degree of local invasion can be quite severe and response to therapy is much more successful for Tis to T1 lesions than for those with significant invasion. The behavior of subungual (nail bed). Many therapeutic modalities have been applied to SCC involving the facial skin in cats. Surgery or Cryosurgery are most commonly used and remain the mainstay for treating these lesions, although numerous reports now exist detailing the use of radiotherapy and photodynamic therapy. Outcomes are generally good for most modalities if the tumors are treated early (i.e., Tis to T1) in their course. In general, lesions of the pinna are more manageable than those of the nasal planum because the location allows a more aggressive surgical or cryosurgical dose. Surgical excision of lesions of the pinnae result in long-term control (, 1.5 years) in the majority of cases. In a report of 102 cats with 163 lesions, ...
0033] It is generally desirable to maintain a constant pressure in the expansion element 108 during a cryoablation procedure. For example, when the expansion element 108 is configured and arranged to expand, changes in coolant flow rate may cause variable pressure in the expansion element 108 which, in turn, may cause an undesired temporary partial deflation of the expansion element 108. As mentioned above, when the expansion element 108 is positioned at a target ablation location, mass flow of coolant into the coolant transfer tube 204 may occur for a period of time at a rate that is sufficiently slow enough to maintain a constant pressure in the expansion element 108 without a corresponding temperature reduction sufficient to ablation tissue upon contact. In some instances, a pressure reduction may occur in the expansion element 108 at some point between placement of the expansion element 108 at the target ablation location and the onset of ablation. For example, a pressure reduction may occur ...

This paper presents the preliminary development of a novel cryoablation catheter for the delivery of cryo-energy and complimentary pharmacological agents selected to improve lesion formation. The described prototype uses a commercially available cryoablation catheter with a deployable needle injection catheter grafted onto it. The device would be used in endocardial ablation of thick structures and would inject an adjuvant at the desired depth prior to cryotherapy delivery. Adjuvants have been investigated previously to increase the "kill zone" of an ablation lesion and can minimize the zone of incomplete death near the iceball edge. This makes visualization of the iceball via ultrasound a better predictor for lesion size and progression. Transmurality of a lesion can be essential for a clinical ablation procedure to have long-term effectiveness. The secondary goal of such a device may be to increase energy transfer via the metal needle in the myocardium, so to further aid in the creation of ...
6 March 2019. The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) held their annual meeting in Dallas last week. This meeting usually draws about 1500 breast surgeons (just under half the ASBrS membership) from around the world, for several days of pre-meeting courses, didactic sessions, and research presentations. In addition to the science, the meeting provides opportunities for breast surgeons in all types of practice settings and at all levels of training and practice to network and learn from each other. The following covers some highlights from the general session. The meeting started off with the Critical Issues in Breast Cancer Forum: Changing Paradigms for Breast Cancer Surgery. Dr. Cary Kaufman presented an update on current clinical trials for cryoablation for breast cancer. Cryoablation is a technique that freezes the tumor, using a small probe placed into the tumor (similar to a needle biopsy) under local anesthesia. There are several types of ablative therapy including laser, ...
SCCs that are invasive are more dangerous. They most commonly appear as a lump, and are often open sores that bleed easily. The risk of metastasis is around 3%. Some of these may be considered high risk because of size, location or features seen on the biopsy. They may be found on the ear, lip or in an old wound. They are larger, deeper, and may invade nerves or have cell that are "poorly differentiated". The risk of metastasis from a high risk SCC runs from 10 to 30%.. The treatment for an SCC depends on its type, location and risk. For most SCC the best treatment is excision (the SCC is cut out and the hole stitched up). Along with a surrounding strip of normal appearing skin, this is sent to a pathology laboratory. The lab checks to confirm complete removal complete removal of the SCC. Small, surface SCC can also be destroyed by freezing (cryosurgery) or electrodesiccation and curettage (ED&C). Cryosurgery uses liquid nitrogen for small superficial lesions, while C & E removes the SCC by ...
Cryosurgery which is known as freezing skin tags is also a very popular method which is used in many clinics. The docor will apply liquid nitrogen on your skin tag and it will fall off. Read more about cryosurgery.. There are a few other alternative treatments to lasers and some of these cost a lot less money and involve no discomfort; some can be done from the comfort of your own home.

The great thing about these natural products is that they are a lot cheaper than the other options and you can ...
During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market. ...

Cryoablation can (and should) be used to operate on fibromas, and in general on all recurrent tumours of the cervix with no other surgical options (1). Numerous studies have further demonstrated that thermal ablation techniques present no disadvantages if compared with other classical techniques (2). Needle-shaped cryoprobes are used if they have to be inserted into fibromas, or shaped like a suction cup if they must be placed on the cervix. The procedure is generally performed under direct visual control, and not necessarily with the assistance of an ultrasound scan.

comABSTRACTSeborrhoiec Keratosis (SK) is one of the most common benign neoplasia of the eyelids, usually affecting elderly females. Typically, the lesions start as discrete, tan-dark brown, flat lesions starting on the face and progressing to other sun-exposed areas. The natural progression is generally an increase in size, thickness and pigmentation of these lesions. A variant of SK, Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN), has been described in black people, characterized by an earlier and more severe manifestation with multiple, profuse lesions. The diagnosis is clinical, although histopathological examination may be sought to confirm the diagnosis. These lesions are benign and usually only removed for cosmetic reasons. However, in some patients, concern or discomfort may warrant removal. Cryosurgery, electrodesiccation, curettage or shave excision are all effective methods of management. When eyelid lesions are excised, the resulting anterior lamellar defect can be repaired by primary closure, local ...

PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of cryoablation in the treatment of low-flow malformations, specifically venous malformation (VM) and fibroadipose vascular anomaly (FAVA). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 11 consecutive patients with low-flow malformations (14 lesions; 9 VM, 5 FAVA), median lesion volume 10.8 cm3, (range, 1.8-55.6 cm3) with a median age of 19 years (range, 10-50 years) who underwent cryoablation to achieve symptomatic control. Average follow-up was at a median of 207 days postprocedure (range, 120-886 days). Indications for treatment included focal pain and swelling. Technical success was achieved if the cryoablation ice ball covered the region of the malformation that corresponded to the patients symptoms. Clinical success was considered complete if all symptoms resolved and partial if some symptoms persisted but did not necessitate further treatment. RESULTS: The technical success rate was 100%. At 1-month follow-up, 13 of 14 lesions ...

Well, coming out of the cornea and limbus as it was I really suspected this would be a squamous cell carcinoma. But after we resected it and performed cryosurgery on the underlying tissue, our pathologists read it out as a papilloma as you can see here. So whats the difference histopathologically between the SCC and papilloma then? Being a simple chap I liked the explanation from Kathy, one of our pathologists: the SCC grows into the corneal tissue while the papilloma grows out! Im sure its more complicated than that but an easy answer like that was fine for me! ...

Anyway, having dismissed that, the Urological RN then pointed to an area in the pelvis which showed "unusual cellular activity". She said it was necessary to now get an x-ray of the pelvic area in order to rule out a bone "met" that escaped. Recall these "mets" are actual prostate cancer cells that have escaped from the gland and taken up residence in other organs, regions. If indeed a met, as I pointed out in my earlier post (Nov. 21) it would have meant there was no point doing the focal cryotherapy treatment- or the 3D staging biopsy, see e.g ...

Cryosurgery is a technique involving the freezing of abnormal cells. This relatively new method is typically used in treating cancerous, pre-cancerous, and non-cancerous conditions. Cryosurgery can be performed inside and outside the body. This method has yielded mixed results. Long-term effects have not been studied.. Cryosurgery has mixed results with birthmark removal. It is not suggested as a method to remove hemangiomas on the body or in the oral and throat areas. It can sometimes be used to remove small sized or cavernous hemangiomas. Small port wine stains can also be removed using this method.. Resources. "Vascular Birthmarks."American Academy of Dermatology. N.p., n.d.

There are currently two available diameters of the Arctic Front™ cryoballoon (Medtronic Cryocath LP), 23 and 28 mm. In our laboratory, we only use the big (28 mm) balloon. The major rationale behind the big cryoballoon strategy is procedural safety by using an intentionally oversized balloon deploying lesions as proximal as possible at the PV antrum. In addition to energy delivery to PV tissue, a deep position inside the vein results in the combined effect of close proximity to adjacent structures and deeper freezing temperatures due to less convective heating of the balloon by atrial blood flow. Accordingly, right-sided phrenic nerve palsy (PNP), the most frequent complication associated with cryoballoon PV isolation, has been reported in a significantly higher rate using the 23mm (12.4%) when compared to the 28mm balloon (3.5%).(3) Although transient in the great majority of patients, PNP may occur due to the close anatomical relationship of the right phrenic nerve to the septal (especially ...
Conclusion CT-guided percutaneous cryoablation is an efficient minimally invasive method for the palliative treatment of TN secondary to recurrent invasive head and neck carcinoma as a result of direct tumoral invasion of the extracranial divisions of the trigeminal nerve. Patients meeting the therapeutic criteria of individuals treated for musculoskeletal metastatic lesions may benefit from this treatment. The results suggest it may not currently be a curative technique as one patients symptoms returned, but it could prove useful as an adjunct to current palliative therapies with minimal invasiveness and procedural morbidity, especially in patients seeking pain palliation, improved functional status and improved quality of life near the end of life. ...
Cryotherapy is an alternative tumor treatment option, usually preferred in cases wherein removal of tumor using conventional surgery is not effective.

Introduction: Limited data are available on safety and efficacy of second-generation cryoballoon (CB2) for cryoablation of atrial fibrillation (CBA).. Hypothesis: To evaluate in a large cohort of patients treated in real world clinical settings, demographics, procedural data and outcomes comparing CB2 to first-generation cryoballoon (CB1).. Methods: Between 2012 and 2014, 581 patients (74% men, 59±10 years, 78% paroxysmal AF, LA diameter: 41±6 mm) suffering from AF and undergoing pulmonary veins (PV) CBA were prospectively enrolled in ClinicalService® framework One Shot TO Pulmonary vein isolation (1STOP) project. The cohort was divided into 2 groups according to the cryoballoon used in standard clinical practice: 120 (21%) CB1 and 461 (79%) CB2.. Results: Clinical and demographic characteristics were similar in the two cohorts; procedure, fluoroscopy and ablation time were significantly lower in CB2 respect to CB1 (141±40 vs 166±50 min, p,.001; 35±15 vs 41±15 min, p,.001; 27±17 vs ...
Verrucae are warty growths which occur on the soles or toes of your feet. They are caused by the Human papilloma virus and can be contracted in any communal areas such as swimming baths and changing rooms. They are highly contageous, and should you be unlucky to catch the virus, precautions should be taken not to walk around barefoot anywhere.. Verrucaes can often be painful and unsightly and extremely difficult to treat.Peoples first port of call is normally visiting the chemist or GP however this will not cure your Verrucae .For those patients with a verrucae which have become resistant to both over the counter ointments and cryosurgical treatments, surgical removal is an option under a local anaesthetic. We are finding more and more people are becoming resistant to over the counter treatments, we advise you book in to see a highly qualified Podiatrist and he should be your first port of call to assess your verrucae as to whether we can treat or surgically remove..

In the 518 patients treated between 2005 and 2010, a 20-polar Lasso catheter (Biosense Webster, Diamond Bar, California) was placed in the LA to map signals before and after ablation at the ostial sides of PVs. Starting in 2010, the Achieve mapping catheter (Medtronic) was employed instead to enable mapping during and after each freezing procedure (n = 87). Freezing times were 2 × 360 s for each vein, 3 × 300 s for left superior (LS) PVs.. Sustained PVI was confirmed 30 min after the initial isolation. For difficult verifications, namely, because of large far-field potentials of the LA, exit block was confirmed by pacing within the PV ostium monitored with the Lasso or Achieve catheter. In 53 patients in the early cohort, touch-up of remaining gaps was performed with the 8-mm tip Freezor MAX focal cryoablation catheter (Medtronic Cryocath). In all later patients, residual potentials were eliminated with additional balloon freezes.. Post-ablation treatment was as described previously (4). ...

IN SEARCH OF RELIEF FOR HIS BACK PAIN, LINZIE KRAMER DISCOVERED CRYOTHERAPY - or cold shock therapy, as its commonly known today - on a trip to Europe. With just one treatment, he experienced amazing results. Cryotherapy is the use of low temperatures for wellness. It can be used to reduce pain, enhance athletic performance, and rejuvenate the body and skin. The term "cryotherapy" comes from the Greek word "cryo" meaning "cold" and therapy meaning "cure.". In 2011, inspired to bring relief to others, Kramer and his three sons started the North American cryotherapy industry launching the first US Cryotherapy treatment center in Northern California. "Everything we do is non-invasive and comes with immediate gratification to the user. Cold shock stimulates the production of key hormones and proteins to elevate the mood, energy, and break the reception of pain," says Kevin Kramer, who has represented the family as US Cryotherapys CEO since 2013. "The underlying benefit is enhanced systemic ...
We present a case of Great Cardiac Vein cryoablation in order to suppress idiopathic epicardial Ventricular Tachycardia after failed Radiofrequency ablation via the epicardium and GCV.
The temperatures used in cryotherapy are extremely cold. They can reach below 200 degrees Fahrenheit. For that reason, cryotherapy sessions are usually short, generally lasting between two and five minutes at a time. There are several different forms of cryotherapy. One of the most popular is whole-body cryotherapy, which involves a patient sitting in a cryogenic chamber. Localized cryotherapy involves the use of a wand or other tool to apply cold to a specific area of the body.. Cryotherapy is a new practice and there is still much to study about it. Here are some of the ways cryotherapy has been shown to help with certain conditions. ...

Approximately half of patients with rectal cancer may be candidates for palliative therapy at some point during their disease process because of locally advanced or metastatic disease or high operative risk.4,7 Treatment strategies as an alternative for palliative surgery for advanced stage rectal cancer include laser ablation, argon plasma coagulation, electrocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, pelvic radiotherapy, chemotherapy, endoscopic stenting, and cryotherapy.7-11 Treatment selection should consider the patients symptoms, age, comorbid conditions, extent of disease, and patient preference.. Endoscopic cryotherapy has been used to control tumor bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract. This technique involves directing freezing nitrogen gas on the lesion during direct visualization, causing immediate and delayed cellular death.6,12 Each mucosal site is generally treated for 20-30 seconds for 2-3 cycles with at least 45 seconds between freezes to allow complete tissue thawing.

Background: Radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation is the procedure of choice for the potential cure of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) with high success rates. We hypothesed that as a result of the close proximity of Kochs triangle and low inter-atrial septal fibers, the RF ablation applied at this region may result in prolongation of inter-atrial conduction time (IACT). Methods: RF ablation of AVNRT was performed by conventional technique. IACT was measured before and 20 minutes after RF ablation during sinus rhythm. Number of ablations given and duration of ablation were noted. Results: The study group was consisted of 48 patients (36 [75%] female, 12 [25%] male, mean age 43.4 ± 14. 5 years). RF ablation was successful in all patients. Mean RF time was 4. 0 ± 3. 3 minutes and mean number of RF was 11. 9 ± 9, 8. The mean IACT was 70.1 ± 9.0 ms before ablation and 84.9 ± 12.7 ms after ablation, which demonstrated a significant prolongation (p,0.001). The prolongation ...
Aims Steering soft, flexible catheters using an external magnetic field could have advantages for heart catheterization, especially for therapy of tachyarrhythmias. Our aims were to assess the feasibility of magnetic navigation to Kochs triangle and reliable ablation of atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia (AVNRT) with a magnetic catheter.. Methods and results Consecutive patients with AVNRT were mapped and ablated with a magnetically enabled catheter (Helios I or II), with, respectively, one and three magnets at the tip. The catheter was remotely advanced with the Cardiodrive™ system and orientated with the Navigant™ control system. After initial positioning with the external magnets, adjustment was made in 5° steps. Success rates, procedure, and fluoroscopy times were analysed, and compared with a local contemporary series of conventional AVNRT ablations. Magnetic navigation was feasible in all 20 patients. Targets were easily reached. Catheters remained stable in position during ...
BACKGROUND: The catheter ablation using radiofrequency(RF) energy in patients with AV nodal reentrant tachycardia(AVNRT) has been proved as a safe and effective nonpharmacologic therapeutic modality. The selective ablation of slow pathway is now becomming a standard treatment in patients with AVNRT because of its high success rate and negligible AV block risk. In our study, we demonstrated the feasibility, success rate and complications of selective radiofrequency catheter ablation of fast pathway or slow pathway for the treatment of AV nodal reentrant tachycardia. METHODS: Among patients diagnosed as AVNRT by electrophysiologic study, total 21 patients (M : F=11 :10, mean age ; 39 years old) were included in this study. Selective RF ablation of fast pathway was performed in 9 patients and selective RF ablation of slow pathway in 12 patients. The RF generator used in this study was Osypka HAT 200 model and catheters were 6F or 7F steerable catheters with 4 mm distal tip. RESULTS: The successful ...
