Herein, we report the efficacy and the safety of open-spray cryotherapy in an immunocompromised woman presenting with tumor-like orf lesion. A 58-year-old woman was referred with a 4-month history of an undiagnosed, painful, ulcerated, tumor-like lesion on the last phalanx of the fifth digit of her left hand. Six months earlier, the woman had received a cadaveric kidney transplant for an indication of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

INTRODUCTION: Salvage treatment options for recurrent unilateral prostate cancer (PCa) after primary radiation are limited and associated with severe complications and poor quality of life measures. Salvage focal cryotherapy (SFC) has shown success in biochemical recurrence (BCR) free survival. We aim to determine if SFC can delay use of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in recurrent PCa with low morbidity. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients who underwent SFC at our institution from 2007 to 2015 was performed...

Canalicular papillomatosis is a rare disorder characterized by a mass lesion arising from the epithelium as a stalk from one of the canalicular walls. Traditionally, they have been treated with an open canaliculotomy and excision biopsy with or without additional cryotherapy. A patient with upper canalicular squamous papillomas treated with dacryoendoscopy-guided transcanalicular intralesional and topical interferon alpha 2b is presented, and the ineffectiveness of interferons in this case is discussed.

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths in women and one of the most common cancers globally. The major obstacle in the management of breast cancer, especially at advanced stages, is metastasis. Metastasis in the advanced stages of breast cancer could decrease survival to approximately 5 years. The reasons could include lack of targeted receptors or chemotherapeutic agents for the management of advanced-stage breast cancer metastasis. The new emerging avenues for the management of this deadly pathological state include local manipulations like radiofrequency ablation (RFA), microwave thermotherapy, cryosurgery (cryotherapy), chemoembolization, radioembolization, breast surgery, or metastasectomy...

Cryotherapy has been used in treatment of lung cancer for decades. The utility of cryotechnology in diagnosis of lung diseases is emerging and gaining popularity. Cryobiopsy (CB) of the lung, when compared with conventional transbronchial forceps lung biopsy, has proposed to have a higher diagnostic yield in interstitial lung disease by providing larger biopsy specimen and less crush artifact. Acute exacerbation of interstitial lung disease (AEILD) has been well described with surgical lung biopsies and, rarely, with conventional transbronchial forceps biopsy...

BACKGROUND: Diabetic foot ulcers are a common complication in the advanced stages of diabetes mellitus. Certain lesions may be refractory to usual treatments with prolonged healing. In these cases, differential diagnoses to classical ulcers should be considered. Although plantar warts are a common and easy-to-diagnose finding in the general population, diagnosis can be challenging in people with diabetic foot ulcers, as they mimic hyperkeratosis in these people. CASE REPORT: We report seven cases of people with diabetic foot ulcers and verrucae vulgares mimicking treatment-refractory hyperkeratosis, presenting to our centre between 2014 and 2016...

We report a unique case of a 79-year-old woman with metastatic rectal cancer who developed bowel obstruction following endoscopic cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen for palliation of bleeding in the rectum. She developed abdominal distention and pain following the procedure. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a paraumbilical hernia containing a segment of transverse colon resulting in partial bowel obstruction. It appears that the recurrent freeze-thaw cycles with poor decompression of the colon despite active venting suction during cryotherapy may have resulted in bowel distention and collapse, causing conformational changes resulting in partial bowel obstruction due to a paraumbilical hernia...

Nowadays, whole-body cryotherapy is a medical physical treatment widely used in sports medicine. Recovery from injuries (e.g., trauma, overuse) and after-season recovery are the main purposes for application. However, the most recent studies confirmed the anti-inflammatory, anti-analgesic, and anti-oxidant effects of this therapy by highlighting the underlying physiological responses. In addition to its therapeutic effects, whole-body cryotherapy has been demonstrated to be a preventive strategy against the deleterious effects of exercise-induced inflammation and soreness...

INTRODUCTION: Condyloma Acuminata (CA) is a common viral sexually transmitted disease. Although various treatment modalities are available for treating CA, but none of them can achieve 100% response rate. In a search for better response rate and less recurrence rate, the combination of cytotoxic agent Podophyllin with ablative liquid nitrogen cryotherapy was evaluated over cryotherapy alone. AIM: To evaluate the synergistic effect of Podophyllin as a chemotherapeutic adjunct to an ablative therapy of liquid nitrogen cryotherapy versus liquid nitrogen cryotherapy alone in the treatment of CA...

Advances in cancer treatments have lengthened the survival of patients with bone metastases. Optimal control of the symptoms and prevention of the complications associated with bone metastases improve quality of life. Achieving these goals increasingly involves interventional radiology procedures. These include bone consolidation and analgesic techniques such as cementoplasty (vertebroplasty at the spine); percutaneous implantation of screws, metallic reinforcement devices, or intraosseous implants; and tumor destruction using thermal methods (radiofrequency and cryotherapy), chemicals (alcohol), and drugs (chemoembolization), which have fewer indications...

REVIEW
Christina Bergqvist, Mazen Kurban, Ossama Abbas
Orf virus (ORFV) is an important pathogen responsible for a highly contagious zoonotic viral infection that threatens those who handle sheep and goats. Orf virus is the prototype of the Parapoxvirus genus, and its resilience in the environment and ability to reinfect its host has contributed to the spread and maintenance of the infection in many species. In healthy humans, the disease usually resolves spontaneously within 3 to 6 weeks. There is no specific treatment and many different approaches such as use of imiquimod, cidofovir, curettage, shave excision, cryotherapy, and electrocautery have all been reported to be successful, without supporting evidence from controlled clinical trials...

BACKGROUND: Muscle enzymes are cleared from the extracellular space by the lymphatic system, while smaller proteins enter the bloodstream directly. We investigated if manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), local cryotherapy (CRY), and rest (RST) differently affect the time course of creatine kinase (CK, 84 kDa) and heart-type fatty acid binding protein (h-FABP, 15 kDa) in the blood. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. METHODS: After 4x20 unilateral, eccentric accentuated knee extensions (with one-third of the maximal isometric force) 30 sports students randomly received either a 30 min MLD, CRY or they rested (RST) for the same amount of time...
