Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema: A Review of Recent Developments
With improved methods of detection and advancing treatment paradigms, breast cancer outcomes continue to improve. Along with this improved survivorship, an increased focus on long term sequelae of treatment must occur. Breast cancer related lymphedema (BCRL) represents one of the most frequently recognized complications following breast cancer treatment and has been found to be associated with the extent of locoregional therapy. With regards to incidence rates, several randomized trials have found that with utilization of less aggressive axillary staging (i.e., sentinel lymph node biopsies), that rates of BCRL are reduced compared with axillary lymph node dissections.
Finding Fibers: Intrauterine Synechia of the Lower Uterus after Cesarean Section
Intra-uterine adhesions, while most commonly the result of uterine curettage, may occur following any uterine surgery. However, the precise incidence of adhesion formation following uterine surgery is unknown. Described is a case of uterine adhesion formation shortly following cesarean delivery diagnosed and treated successfully with hysteroscopy and resection. The precise location of the adhesion and the time of diagnosis in this case suggest that is was an iatrogenic complication of cesarean delivery.
Is there a True Link between HCV and Pathogenesis of RCC?
It is estimated that approximately 3% (130-200 million) of the world population are infected with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV). 130–200 million people, or ~3% of the world’s population, are living with chronic hepatitis C. Approximately, 350,000 deaths and 4 million new cases are confirmed annually from HCV-related diseases. In the United States, 35,000-185,000 new cases are reported with an estimated death 8,000-10,000 annually.
Spontaneous Resolution of an Iatrogenic Ureterovaginal Fistula after Clinical Treatment of Hypothyroidism: A Case Study with a Review of the Literature
Association of hypothyroidism and disturbances of healing process is well known, but its exact effect on tissue integrity and mechanisms of dehiscence remain unclear. The relationship between hypothyroidism and iatrogenic ureterovaginal fistula is scarcely reported in the literature. We report the case of a 46-yearold woman who underwent cytoreductive surgery for ovarian cancer and developed an ureterovaginal fistula that was conservatively and successfully managed with thyroid hormone replacement after being diagnosed with myxedema.
