• recurrent
  • This randomized phase III trial studies how well transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) works compared to stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) or stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR) in patients with liver cancer that remain after attempts to remove the cancer have been made (residual) or has come back (recurrent). (stanford.edu)
  • It is not yet known whether TACE is more effective than SBRT or SABR in treating patients with persistent or recurrent liver cancer who have undergone initial TACE. (stanford.edu)
  • This is also known as "frontal lobe incontinence", where the patient becomes indifferent to their recurrent urinary symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • fibers
  • By preventing the deterioration of the nerve fibers from hyperglycemia, patients may recover significant muscle strength. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gait disturbance is typically the initial and most prominent symptom of the triad and may be progressive, due to expansion of the ventricular system, particularly at the level of the lateral ventricles, leading to traction on the corticospinal tract motor fibers descending to the lumbosacral spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • The dementia is thought to result from traction on frontal and limbic fibers that also run in the periventricular region. (wikipedia.org)
  • spine
  • At first they experience vague rheumatic pains , then the pains become localized in the spine, especially in the lumbosacral region. (slweb.org)
  • However, we also found patients with slight radiological changes (subtle signs or stage O-I) who complained of intense pains in the spine and in the large joints . (slweb.org)
  • The solution, Williams explained, was to have the patient perform exercises and adhere to postural principles which serve to decrease the lumbar lordosis to a minimum, thereby reducing the pressure on the posterior elements of the lumbar spine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tarlov cysts are most commonly located in the S1 to S4/S5 region of the spinal canal, but can be found along any region of the spine. (wikipedia.org)
  • thoracic
  • These cysts are most often located in the thoracic area and are diagnosed most frequently in patients under 30 years of age. (populus.org)
  • Scheuermann's kyphosis dorsalis or kyphosis without epiphysitis has coexisted in almost half the cases overall and in two-thirds of the patients between 11 and 20 years of age (all of whom had cysts in the thoracic region). (populus.org)
  • cortical
  • However, enlarged ventricles put increased pressure on the adjacent cortical tissue and cause myriad effects in the patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • The rapid growth of fast-growing high-grade brain tumors may damage the subcortical network essential for electrical transmission, whereas slow-growing tumors have been suggested to induce partial deafferentation of cortical regions, causing denervation hypersensitivity and producing an epileptogenic milieu. (wikipedia.org)
  • mild
  • A) Maximum intensity projection, (B) sagittal fusion positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), and (C) CT images show heterogeneously increased high fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake (maximum standardized uptake value [SUVmax], 12.7) including hypometabolic area within the lesion in the lumbosacral region due to squamous cell carcinoma, and mild FDG uptake within right axillary (SUVmax, 2.6) and bilateral inguinal (SUVmax, 3.4) lymph nodes. (kjim.org)
  • Often a mobility aid is used for added stability, once the patient has reached the mild to marked stage. (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgery
  • The Editors of Patient Safety in Surgery would like to thank all our reviewers who have contributed to the journal in Volume 7 (2013). (biomedsearch.com)
  • It is not yet known whether radiation therapy is more effective when given alone or together with cetuximab in treating patients with head and neck cancer that has been removed by surgery. (stanford.edu)
  • PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying radiation therapy to see how well it works compared with radiation therapy given together with cetuximab in treating patients who have undergone surgery for locally advanced head and neck cancer. (stanford.edu)
  • Clinical studies have found up to 75% of post-lumbar fusion patients develop SI joint degeneration within five years of surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • Proximal diabetic neuropathy can occur in type 2 and type 1 diabetes mellitus patients however, it is most commonly found in type 2 diabetics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tumors
  • Seizures are common in patients with low-grade tumors such as dysembryoblastic neuroepithelial tumors, gangligliomas, and oligodendrogliomas. (wikipedia.org)
  • diabetes
  • Despite a good safety profile in most patients with diabetes, the risk of metformin-associated lactic acidosis is real if safety guidelines are ignored. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Although this disease does occur in patients without diabetes the prevalence is much greater in the diabetic indicating that although hyperglycemia does not directly cause the nerve damage it may play a role. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • Multiple treatment options are introduced in treatment of chronic localized plaque psoriasis but with poor adherence and poor patients' satisfaction resulting in poor treatment outcome. (bioportfolio.com)
  • A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to IL-12 and IL-23 and is used as a DERMATOLOGIC AGENT in the treatment of patients with plaque PSORIASIS who have not responded to other therapies. (bioportfolio.com)
  • The patient received treatment to nourish the neurons and improve the blood circulation in order to increase the blood supply. (chinastemcell.com.cn)
  • occur
  • Because of this, patients do not exhibit the classic signs that accompany increased intracranial pressure such as headache, nausea, vomiting, or altered consciousness, although some studies have shown pressure elevations to occur intermittently. (wikipedia.org)
  • stages
  • In the initial stages [of skeletal fluorosis], the complaints of the patients are not remarkable. (slweb.org)
  • medication
  • Most patients take oral medication that is prescribed by a doctor. (wikipedia.org)
  • While arachnoiditis may not yet be curable and can be significantly life-altering, management of the condition, including with medication, physical therapy, and if appropriate, psychotherapy, can help patients cope with the difficulties it presents. (wikipedia.org)
  • condition
  • For the ossificans form of the condition, unenhanced CT may better show the presence and extent of arachnoid ossifications, and is complementary to MRI, as MRI can be less specific and findings can be confused with regions of calcification or hemosiderin. (wikipedia.org)
  • hospital
  • She was admitted to the hospital due to the lumbosacral wound having become infecting and producing a discharge for 6-months. (kjim.org)
  • benefit
  • Lumbosacral orthoses may be of benefit for some patients but should be used on a temporary basis to prevent spinal muscle atrophy and loss of proprioception. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some patients benefit from motorized assistance devices such as the Segway or standing wheelchairs, although these types of devices may be beyond the reach of those with limited means. (wikipedia.org)
  • together
  • PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving capecitabine together with gemcitabine followed by capecitabine and radiation therapy works in treating patients with cholangiocarcinoma of the gallbladder or bile duct. (stanford.edu)
  • base
  • An increased tendency to fall backwards is also seen, and a broad-based gait may be employed by the patient in order to increase their base of support and thereby their stability. (wikipedia.org)
