Colon Cancer/Rectal Cancer

Image result for Colon Cancer/Rectal Cancer

The rectum is part of the digestive tract. Cancer that originates in the colon or rectum may be called rectal cancer, colon cancer, or colorectal cancer. Because treatment and progression of colon cancer and rectal cancer may be different, they are often reported separately.

Tests used to help detect cancer at an early stage and help improve the outcome are called screening tests. Colorectal cancer screening tests include digital rectal examination (DRE), proctoscopy, colonoscopy, and stool occult blood testing. Beginning at the age of 50, a colonoscopy and annual DRE and occult blood testing should be performed. Younger patients who should undergo colorectal cancer screening include those under the age of 50 with a family history of colon cancer, and patients with a history of rectal or gynecologic cancer or ulcerative colitis.

In general, rectal and rectosigmoid cancer  are more likely than other colon cancers to produce symptoms prior to diagnosis. These cancers often cause bleeding that can be observed. Other signs and symptoms include a change in bowel activity, unexplained constipation or a reduction in stool caliber, urgency, and inadequate emptying of the bowels. With advanced tumors, urinary symptoms or buttock pain may occur. These symptoms usually lead to an evaluation of the colorectal area.

Digital rectal examination  may be used as an initial screening examination; however, tumors located more than 7 centimeters from the anal verge may be missed during this examination. Additional studies include barium enema, usually with flexible sigmoidoscopy and/or colonoscopy used as a complementary procedure.If a tumor is discovered by any of the above procedures, a biopsy should be performed.

Uterine choriocarcinoma

This rare type of tumor that most often affects pregnant women is called a gestational choriocarcinoma. The cancer usually starts in your uterus but can spread to other parts of the body. It can happen after a miscarriage, abortion, ectopic pregnancy, or molar pregnancy when an egg is fertilized, but the placenta develops into a mass of cysts instead of a fetus.

Symptoms

If the choriocarcinoma is in your vagina, it could cause bleeding.

If it has spread to other parts of your body like your lungs or brain, you may notice:

  • Cough
  • Trouble breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Dizziness  

Treatment

 If your tumor is low-risk, meaning it’s small and hasn’t spread, chemotherapy is the main treatment. You’ll get it until there are no signs of cancer in your body based on hCG levels.

If your cancer is high-risk, you may need surgery and chemo, or surgery, chemo, and radiation.

Nearly all women diagnosed with the disease are cured with treatment, though it’s less likely if the disease has spread to your liver or your liver and your brain. But each case is different, and your doctor will discuss the option that’s right for you.

Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy

Related image

Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy is a disorder that primarily affects the nervous system. Individuals with infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy typically do not have any symptoms at birth, but between the ages of about 6 and 18 months they begin to experience delays in acquiring new motor and intellectual skills, such as crawling or beginning to speak. In some cases, signs and symptoms of infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy first appear later in childhood or during the teenage years and progress more slowly.

Children with infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy experience progressive difficulties with movement. They generally have muscles that are at first weak, and then gradually become very stiff. Eventually, affected children lose the ability to move independently. Lack of muscle strength causes difficulty with feeding. Muscle weakness can also result in breathing problems that can lead to frequent infections, such as pneumonia. Seizures occur in some affected children.Children with this disorder experience progressive deterioration of cognitive functions (dementia), and they eventually lose awareness of their surroundings.

The first symptoms may be slowing of motor and mental development, followed by loss or regression of previously acquired skills.  Rapid, wobbly eye movements and squints may be the first symptoms, followed by floppiness in the body and legs. For the first few years, a baby with INAD will be alert and responsive, despite being increasingly physically impaired.  Eventually, because of deterioration in vision, speech, and mental skills, the child will lose touch with its surroundings.   Death usually occurs between the ages of 5 to 10 years.

There is no cure for INAD and no treatment that can stop the progress of the disease. Treatment is symptomatic  and supportive. Doctors can prescribe medications for pain relief and sedation. Physiotherapists and other physical therapists can teach parents and caregivers how to position and seat their child, and to exercise arms and legs to maintain comfort.

Raynaud’s disease

Image result for raynaud's disease
 A person with Raynaud’s disease experiences pain in the extremities, for example, the fingers, when temperatures drop. Fingers or toes turn from white to blue and, then, as the blood returns, they flush red. Females are an estimated nine times more likely to be affected than males

Causes

Exactly what causes Raynaud’s remains unclear, but a hyperactivation of the sympathetic nervous system is known to cause an extreme narrowing of the blood vessels, known as vasoconstriction.

It can happen when the person enters a cold place, opens a freezer, or puts their hands in cold water.

Some people experience symptoms when faced with stress, even without an associated drop in temperature.

In healthy individuals, the circulatory system in the extremities, such as the fingers and toes, reacts to conserve heat in cold conditions. The small arteries that supply the skin with oxygen narrow to minimize the amount of heat lost through the exposed skin surface.

Diagnosis

The physician will ask the patient questions about symptoms, diet, habits, and hobbies. The patient should be ready to explain when the symptoms first appeared, how often they have them, and what seems to cause them. It may help to keep a diary of this information.A blood test may be done to look for antinuclear antibodies or to measure erythrocyte sedimentation rate, which may indicate autoimmune problems or other inflammatory process.

 

Raynaud’s is not normally life-threatening, but complications can occur.Chilblains happen when there is a problem with the blood circulation, and Raynaud’s is one possible cause. The skin becomes itchy, red, and swollen and it may feel hot, burning, and tender. Chilblains usually resolve in 1 to 2 weeks, but they can come back. Keeping the extremities warm can help prevent them. If the hands and feet become cold, warm them slowly, as too much heat can cause further damage.

If symptoms worsen and blood supply is substantially reduced for a long time, fingers and toes can become deformed.

If oxygen is completely cut off from the area, skin ulcers and gangrenous tissue can develop. Both of these complications are difficult to treat. They may eventually require amputation.

Bertolotti syndrome

Image result for Bertolotti syndrome

Bertolotti syndrome is an uncommon cause of low back pain, particularly focused along the waistline slightly off to the side, that is often confused with sacroiliitis. Bertolotti syndrome is a diagnosis given to someone with symptomatic pain due to a transitional vertebra which is inflamed. Although it is a very rare cause of back pain, Bertolotti syndrome  is a very treatable diagnosis.

Most people with this transitional vertebra do not experience any symptoms. However, for the patients that do, it is important to rule out the other causes of back pain to include pain related to the lumbar disc, pain related to the lumbar facet joints, and even pain related to the sacroiliac joint. This may require specific imaging studies or specific injections to rule out these other pain generators.

For those patients that do have pain related to the pseudoarthrosis, minimally invasive spine surgery is recommended to reshape the enlarged transverse process and remove this transitional fake joint. Many patients have felt significantly better once this has been removed. Other treatment options have been reported, including fusing that region.

Fibromyalgia

Image result for fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is defined by pain and tenderness throughout your body, as well as fatigue.People with fibromyalgia tend to have a heightened sense of pain. This feeling is sometimes described as a constant muscle ache.

It is often considered a rheumatic, or “arthritis-like,” disorder. But unlike arthritis and certain related conditions, it doesn’t cause damage to joints, muscles, or other tissues. Fibromyalgia isn’t a progressive disease, which means that it won’t steadily worsen over time.

There’s no cure for fibromyalgia, but treatments are available that may help relieve symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Most people with fibromyalgia are diagnosed between ages 20 and 50, with symptoms typically showing up months or even years beforehand. Even children can have fibromyalgia.But the incidence of the condition rises with age, so that by age 80, 8 percent of people meet the criteria for fibromyalgia.

Treatment for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is often best treated with a combination of approaches. For some people, certain types of prescription medication can help to reduce symptoms. For others, drugs have little effect, and for everyone, drugs have side effects that must be balanced with potential benefits.

According to the American College of Rheumatology, physical exercise is the most effective treatment for fibromyalgia. Gentle stretching and aerobic exercise can relieve pain and also prevent deconditioning, or getting weaker from lack of exercise. Exercise can also improve sleep. Working with a physical or occupational therapist can be helpful in getting started with an exercise regimen.

Some other lifestyle approaches that may improve fibromyalgia symptoms include stress reduction, not smoking, following a healthy diet, losing weight if you’re overweight, and establishing good sleep habits.

 

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. Hysterectomies are performed for a wide variety of reasons. A hysterectomy is major surgery, but with new technological advances, the discomfort, risk of infection and recovery time has all been decreased.

There are currently three surgical approaches to hysterectomies.

  1. Open, traditional hysterectomy. This involves a six to twelve inch incision made in the abdominal wall.
  2. Vaginal Hysterectomy. This involves removing the uterus through the vagina. This approach is better than the open, traditional hysterectomy, but still does not allow the surgeon a full view of the surrounding organs, including the bladder.
  3. Robotic-Assisted Radical Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. Using a state-of-the art robotic platform allows the surgeon a full view of the surrounding organs and more precise control over incisions.

Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy also allows your surgeon better visualization of your anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. This means that surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing a complex, radical hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer, or an abdominal hysterectomy.

Potential benefits of Robotic Assisted Hysterectomy includes:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • Decreased risk of infection

Deep Brain Stimulation ( surgical treatment for Parkinson’s patients)

Deep Brain Stimulation or DBS as it is commonly called is a surgical treatment for people with certain types of Parkinson’s. It greatly helps in significantly improving the movement ability.

Deep brain stimulation helps control movement symptoms of Parkinson’s –

  •  tremor
  • slowed movementRelated image
  • stiffness

When medications aren’t as effective as they used to be and your symptoms make everyday life a challenge, DBS may help.

Deep brain stimulation uses a small, pacemaker like device, placed under the skin of the chest, to send electronic signals to an area in the brain that controls movement. Deep brain stimulation has helped some people stay as independent as possible and keep doing the activities they love.

Symptom control may help you continue to do what’s important to you, like taking care of family or continuing to work. Or participate more fully in an event like a vacation or a family wedding.

The DBS system requires no daily cleaning or refilling; you can bathe and shower without worrying about your device; and you don’t have to carry or refrigerate supplies when away from home.
