Oncologists propose to treat breast cancer with low temperatures.
According to a study presented November 28 at the annual meeting of the Radiological society of North America (RSNA), only one patient out of 180 that have passed cryoblation, relapse, Science Daily reports.
Cryoablation is the destruction of cancer cells by freezing. This method is already used to treat cancer of the kidneys and the lungs.
Many believe that triallate is a promising method of treatment of breast cancer. Patients given local anesthesia. Then place the probe into the incision the size of a pea at the location of opuholi. The probe is driven by high resolution ultrasound in combination with mammography images.
Once the probe is installed, it introduces liquid nitrogen. At the beginning of eight cycles of freezing around the tumor forms an ice ball that kills the cancer. After the defrost cycle is used another eight-minute freeze cycles to ensure the complete destruction of cancer cells.
The procedure takes less than an hour and patients can return to normal life shortly thereafter.
In the study, Dr. Kenneth Tomkovich (Tomkovich Kenneth R.) and colleagues from 18 centers in the US studied cryoablation starting in 2014. Doctors conducted cryotherapy female volunteers aged 60 years and older. Then, subjects had to attend sessions mammogram every year for five years.
At the moment the researchers have a three-year monitoring information about 20 patients and two control data on more than 75 patients.
The procedure was successfully performed in all patients and no serious side effects have been reported. Only one patient was observed in the case of recurrence.
The final results of the study will be published in five years.
Recall that a major study of the Cancer center. M. D. Anderson revealed multiple side effects from plastic surgery on her Breasts.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” Dutch researchers from Leiden University Medical Centre found the cause of constant migraines in men.
Also “Znayu” wrote that a high level of anti-Muller hormone in women leads to the development of breast cancer.
