Presentation

  • […] according to the present invention.[google.tl]
Internal Bleeding
  • This condition is also hazardous to the patient and can lead to internal bleeding and severe morbidity and even mortality. This potential complication also deters patients from the use of IUDs. Another problem affecting many women is endometriosis.[google.tm]
Aspiration
  • Includes recommendations from the 2008 National Cancer Institute Thyroid Fine Needle Aspiration State of the Science Conference.[books.google.com]

  • Ashida and Chang (2009) stated that since the curved linear array echo-endoscope (linear EUS) was developed in the 1990s, EUS has evolved from EUS imaging, to EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA), and now to EUS-guided fine needle injection, giving[aetna.com]
Eczema

  • However, the initial excitement that somebody had found an ‘answer to cancer’ which of course was historic, waned because nobody was surviving.[drjohnbergman.com]
  • The term radioluminescence, therefore, means that an appropriate material is excited to luminescence by a radioactive substance.[britannica.com]
Vaginal Dryness
  • Long Term Side Effects of Pelvic Radiation •Chronic bowel irritation (looseness or bleeding) •Chronic bladder irritation (more frequency or burning) •Sexual dysfunction (more vaginal dryness or fibrosis) •Ovarian dysfunction (normal pelvic radiation doses[slideshare.net]
  • The mild events reported were dysuria, vaginal dryness, mucosal atrophy, and rectal bleeding. The moderate treatment related adverse events included dysuria, and vaginal pain. No grade III or IV adverse events were reported.[aetna.com]
Urinary Retention
  • The patient had been admitted for urinary retention, and digital examination suggested locally advanced, unresectable cancer of the prostate.[demosmedical.com]

Workup

Human Papillomavirus
  • •Avoidance of Human Papillomavirus Infection (abstinence, or condoms (lower risk by 60%) •HPV16/18 vaccination will lower the risk by 92% •Screening (pap smear) will lower incidence and mortality by 80% •Smoking cessation (smoking cigarettes increases[slideshare.net]
  • Viral skin infections are most often caused by one of three groups of viruses: poxvirus, human papillomavirus, and herpes simplex virus. Skin infections can also be caused by fungi, most commonly yeast.[continentalhospitals.com]

Treatment

  • The treatment of early stage invasive carcinoma of the cervix (lesions confined to the cervix and vagina) remains either radical surgery, radical radiation therapy or a combination thereof This approach is extraordinarily effective in the vast majority[books.google.com]
  • You are only radioactive when the treatment machine is switched on. So following each treatment, you are safe to be around everyone, including children. You usually have between 2 to 4 treatments. The treatment is the same every time.[cancerresearchuk.org]
  • It is important to talk about possible side effects from each treatment, as these can vary based on your age and health. Each treatment has different recovery times as well. These may help you decide which treatment is best for you.[oncolink.org]
  • Your doctor and/or treatment team will give you specific home-care instructions. You may have tenderness and swelling in the treatment area or other symptoms. This will depend on your specific treatment.[radiologyinfo.org]
  • Your treatment will be planned to suit your situation. Even patients with the same type of cancer may have different radiotherapy treatments. Your doctor will discuss this with you. With external radiotherapy, treatment can last from 4 to 8 weeks.[cancer.ie]

Prognosis

  • Dr Kjorstad (Chapter 2) has identified adenocarcinomas and adenosqua mous carcinomas as having a particularly poor prognosis.[books.google.com]
  • Treatment and prognosis Complications IUCD embedding IUCD perforation three-fold increase risk of generalised pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) pelvic actinomycosis infection pregnancy-associated with IUCD associated pregnancy with spontaneous m iscarriage[radiopaedia.org]
  • Abstract: This editorial consists of summaries of the discussions on incidence, pathogenesis, prognosis and patient follow-up, and transcripts of the discussions on detection and treatment of endometrial carcinoma, from a symposium held in Carefree, Arizona[popline.org]
  • Younger women tend to have a better prognosis than older women.[glowm.com]

Etiology

  • A sizeable body of evidence supports the role of both excessive endogenous estrogen and exogenous estrogen in the etiology of endometrial cancer.[books.google.com]
  • Etiology The uterus is formed during embryogenesis by the fusion of the two mullerian ducts. During this fusion a resorption process eliminates the partition between the two ducts to create a single cavity.[findzebra.com]
  • Headache and Facial Pain: Headache and facial pain can have numerous etiologies that are important for the clinician to consider.ion for an exhaustive compilation of all headache and facial pain etiologies.[continentalhospitals.com]
  • The most common etiologies include childbearing, removal of the uterus, connective tissue defects, prolonged heavy physical labor and postmenopausal atrophy.[google.com.na]

Epidemiology

  • Dozens of epidemiological studies have failed to demonstrate any adverse effects on health, fertility or genetic viability at or below the occupational dose limit.[safety.duke.edu]
  • By profession, I am a biometrician, which is a specialty in mathematics applied to biomedical problems, and am qualified to design and evaluate epidemiological research.[ccnr.org]
  • Epidemiology The occurrence of all types of Müllerian duct abnormalities in women is estimated around 0.4%. A bicornuate uterus is estimated to occur in 0.1-0.5% of women in the U.S.[findzebra.com]

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology A bicornuate uterus is formed during embryogenesis. The fusion process of the upper part of the Müllerian ducts (Paramesonephric ducts) is altered.[findzebra.com]

Prevention

  • Wear a detection badge to determine how much exposure you have had to your clients radioactive implants in order to prevent over exposure.[sciencing.com]
  • It prevents pregnancy by: thinning the endometrial lining preventing sperm motility preventing implantation There are two main types of IUCDs: non-hormonal metallic (copper) hormonal (e.g.[radiopaedia.org]
  • Possibly useful therapeutic substances that could be utilised in embryo transfer include: · Aspirin (which would inhibit the uterine contractions previously discussed that prevent implantation). • Antibiotics (to treat prior infection or prevent organisms[google.sr]
  • You will be limited to strict bed rest while the catheters are in to prevent movement of the catheters. After the final treatment with the pellets, the catheters are removed.[oncolink.org]
  • This helps to prevent long-term side effects. If you would like to know more about different types of radiotherapy, please see our section on advanced radiotherapy.[cancer.ie]
