BACKGROUND: Idiopathic junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET) may still be difficult to control with antiarrhythmic therapy. Transcatheter ablation can be challenging and may be associated with a high risk of unintended AV block. The objective of this manuscript is to report the procedural technique, the location of the successful ablation and the procedural characteristics while utilizing 3D mapping for cryoablation of JET. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on all patients who had undergone cryothermal ablation for the treatment of JET at a single center...

OBJECTIVES: Lumbar facet joint syndrome (LFJS) is the cause of lower back pain in 15-54% of the patients. Clinical studies of cryotherapy for LFJS have reported promising outcomes. However, few studies have focused on the technical aspects of cryoneurolysis for LFJS. The aim of the study was to determine the size and shape of cryolesions in vitro and to determine how they are affected by the duration of freezing, size of the cryoprobe and distance and angulation to an osseous boundary layer...

BACKGROUND: Few treatment modalities are available for treating alopecia areata (AA) of the eyebrow. Due to the anatomical proximity of the eyebrows to the eyes, safety issues and side effects should always be taken into consideration when choosing the treatment modality. This study was designed to examine the efficacy of superficial cryotherapy on patients with AA of the eyebrow. METHODS: Superficial cryotherapy was performed every other week on the right eyebrow (SC-treated) in a total of 20 patients who had been previously treated with diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP) immunotherapy on the scalp...

:   BACKGROUND: Cryotherapy and hyperthermia are effective treatments for several diseases, especially for liver cancers. Thermal conductivity is a significant thermal property for the prediction and guidance of surgical procedure. However, the thermal conductivities of organs and tissues, especially over the temperature range of both cryotherapy and hyperthermia are scarce. OBJECTIVE: To provide comprehensive thermal conductivity of liver for both cryotherapy and hyperthermia...

This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) and cryotherapy, in isolated and combined forms, as muscle recovery techniques after muscle fatigue-inducing protocol. Forty volunteers were randomly divided into five groups: a placebo group (PG); a PBMT group (PBMT); a cryotherapy group (CG); a cryotherapy-PBMT group (CPG); and a PBMT-cryotherapy group (PCG). All subjects performed four sessions at 24-h intervals, during which they submitted to isometric assessment (MVC) and blood collection in the pre-exercise period, and 5 and 60 min post-exercise, while the muscle fatigue induction protocol occurred after the pre-exercise collections...

PURPOSE: To investigate and compare the probability of recurrence of keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs) for different variables and treatment protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An electronic search was undertaken in April 2016 that included clinical series of KCOTs reporting recurrences. Untransformed proportions and meta-analyses were performed to estimate the probability/risk of recurrence, according to several variables. RESULTS: A total of 94 publications were included (6427 KCOTs, 1464 recurrences)...

Benign tracheal stenosis is situation that occurs usually after stress is applied to a certain area in the trachea during the intubation of a patient or inflammation caused during an infection. In the current case report we will present a 65-year-old man with a benign tracheal stenosis due to a 15-day intubation with a high pressure and low volume intubation tube. Current methodology was applied in his case with an excellent result with a 1-year follow up. Cryotherapy, electrocautery-knife, balloon dilation and semi-rigid bronchoscopic technique were applied...

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune, chronic and inflammatory disease, which the affected patients present a higher cardiovascular mortality rate. Physical Activities (PA) have been identified as the most important strategy to prevent cardiovascular diseases. However, the articular damage and the chronic pain caused by RA challenges its regular practice. Moreover, persons with RA tend to avoid PA due to the fear of exacerbating the inflammatory potential and pain...

REVIEW

Biochemical failure after primary external beam radiotherapy for prostate cancer is common, and a significant proportion of these failures are due to local residual or recurrent disease. Early or delayed palliation using androgen deprivation therapy is the most common approach. Although a conservative approach is appropriate for many individuals, selected patients would benefit from retreatment with curative intent. We review the pertinent literature on salvage of locally recurrent prostate cancer after primary radiotherapy, including the modalities of surgery, cryotherapy, high-intensity focused ultrasound, or reirradiation with brachytherapy or stereotactic body radiotherapy...

This article establishes the basics of a theoretical model for the constitutive law that describes the skin temperature and thermolysis heat losses undergone by a subject during a session of whole-body cryotherapy (WBC). This study focuses on the few minutes during which the human body is subjected to a thermal shock. The relationship between skin temperature and thermolysis heat losses during this period is still unknown and have not yet been studied in the context of the whole human body. The analytical approach here is based on the hypothesis that the skin thermal shock during a WBC session can be thermally modelled by the sum of both radiative and free convective heat transfer functions...
