  • fever
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are indicated for tender lymph nodes and fever, and corticosteroids are useful in severe extranodal or generalized disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • The objective of this systematic review was to determine the benefits and harms of early (at the time of local therapy) versus deferred (at the time of clinical disease progression) androgen suppression therapy for patients with node-positive prostate cancer after local therapy. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Abscess
  • This node is firm at the beginning, but a collarstud abscess' is formed eventually, which is a characteristic blue-purple in colour with multiple discharging sinuses. (wikipedia.org)
  • total
  • We investigated the operative outcomes of thoracoscopic esophagectomy (TE) in the prone position, using the concept of total meso-esophageal excision for esophageal cancer. (springermedizin.de)
  • non-ME group) and after (ME group) the introduction of total meso-esophageal excision (ME). (springermedizin.de)
  • versus
  • The data available suggest an improvement in survival and delayed disease progression but increased adverse events for patients with node-positive prostate cancer after local therapy treated with early androgen suppression therapy versus deferred androgen suppression therapy. (biomedcentral.com)
  • findings
  • Randomized controlled trials with blinding of outcome assessment, planned to determine the timing of androgen suppression therapy in node-positive prostate cancer using modern diagnostic imaging modalities, biochemical testing, and standardized follow-up schedules should be conducted to confirm these findings. (biomedcentral.com)
  • cases
  • Compared with histopathology, lymph nodes were true positive in three cases, true negative in 65 cases, false positive in three cases and false negative in 14 cases in PET/CT. (springer.com)
  • Recently, several cases of histiocytoma were observed in which histiocytes had migrated to draining lymph nodes and completely obliterated them. (wikipedia.org)
  • wide local ex
  • For preinvasive lesions of the vulva, total vulvectomy (simple or skinning) is rarely used now, with wide local excision or even more conservative treatments such as laser ablation being much more common. (mhmedical.com)
  • Invasion of the dermis by atypical, pleomorphic melanocytes Absence of the 'maturation' typical of naevus cells Mitoses Treatment is by excisional biopsy, wide local excision and possibly sentinel node biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tumor
  • p16 overexpression was associated with more advanced Tumor-Node-Metastasis stage and higher histologic grade. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Besides the tumour itself, the radiation fields may also include the draining lymph nodes if they are clinically or radiologically involved with tumor, or if there is thought to be a risk of subclinical malignant spread. (wikipedia.org)
  • The first nodes (sentinel nodes) can be identified by particulate markers such as lymphazurin, methylene blue, India ink and radio-labelled colloid protein particles injected near the tumor site. (wikipedia.org)
  • The draining sentinel node can then be found by the surgeon and excised for verification by the pathologist if tumor cells are present, and often these tumor cells are few and only easily recognized by careful examination or by using techniques such as special stains, i.e. immunohistochemical. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Therefore, apart from the powerful bench-top imaging system, a portable label-free multi-modal multi-photon imaging system is built and used to collect images in operating room right after tissue excision, which is believed to preserve the TEV vitality to the maximum extent. (uiuc.edu)
  • Thyroid tissue in the midline region, not in the lymph nodes, is usually ectopic in nature. (thecardiologyadvisor.com)
  • 2 A total vulvectomy includes excision of the entire vulva, clitoris, and perineal tissue. (mhmedical.com)
  • If the margins of the removed breast tissue do contain cancer cells, then additional surgery (re-excision) is usually necessary to attempt to remove the remaining cancer. (imaginis.com)
  • They have a rim of peripheral lymphoid tissue (remnant of a lymph node) and consist of spindle cells with nuclear palisading. (wikipedia.org)
  • labia
  • The lymphatics of the labia drain to the upper vulva and mons, then to both superficial and deep inguinal and femoral lymph nodes. (wikipedia.org)
  • biopsies
  • However, as many melanoma-in-situs are large and on the face, a physician will often chose to do multiple small punch biopsies before committing to a large excision for diagnostic purpose alone. (wikipedia.org)
  • local
  • For multifocal disease, several local excisions with primary closure may be preferable to extensive vulvectomy. (mhmedical.com)
  • For limited excisions, local anesthesia and deep sedation or laryngeal mask anesthesia may be adequate. (mhmedical.com)
  • skin
  • The signs of inoperability included ulceration of the skin, fixation to the chest wall, satellite nodules, edema of the skin (peau d'orange), supraclavicular lymph node enlargement, axillary lymph nodes greater than 2.5 cm, or matted, fixed lymph nodes. (wikipedia.org)
  • result
  • Therefore, it was thought that performing wider and more mutilating surgeries that removed a greater number of lymph nodes would result in greater chances of cure. (wikipedia.org)
  • system
  • The virus encodes enzymes required for replication and transcription of its genome, including elements of a base excision repair system, structural proteins, and many proteins that are not essential for replication in cells, but instead have roles in virus survival and transmission in its hosts. (wikipedia.org)
  • necessary
  • Specifically, p21 has a high affinity for the PIP-box binding region on PCNA, binding of p21 to this region is proposed to block the binding of processivity factors necessary for PCNA dependent S-phase DNA synthesis, but not PCNA dependent nucleotide excision repair (NER). (wikipedia.org)
  • Base
  • Base excision repair (BER) genes are responsible for repair of DNA damage caused by reactive oxygen species and other electrophiles and therefore are good candidate susceptibility genes for HNC. (docphin.com)
