ABSTRACT

Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is not a common presentation, but physicians get to see cases with pre-excitation syndrome. WPW is characterized by the existence of an accessory pathway that predisposes patients to tachyarrhythmias and sudden death. Patients with WPW syndrome are at greater risk of hazardous ventricular arrhythmias. The majority of the cases never present with an underlying structural cardiac disease. It is always controversial to manage asymptomatic patients with WPW syndrome. Here, we discuss an uncommon case of a 48-year-old man with WPW syndrome after being evaluated for palpitation and giddiness.

ABSTRACT

Objective To observe the clinical efficacy and safety of transhepatic arterial chemoemboli-zation (TACE)combined with radiofrequency ablation (RFA)in the treatment of colorectal cancer with liver metastasis. Methods The data of 92 patients with colorectal cancer with liver metastasis admitted to Nanyang First People's Hospital of Henan Province from January 2014 to January 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. A total of 46 patients treated with TACE were selected as the TACE group,and another 46 patients treated with TACE and RFA were selected as the combined group. The clinical efficacies of the two groups were compared, and the changes of Karnofsky functional status (KPS)scores before and after treatment in the two groups were analyzed. The incidences of complications in the two groups were calculated. Patients in the two groups were followed up,and the progress-free survival (PFS)and overall survival (OS)were calculated. Results The disease control rate of the combined group was 82. 61% (38 / 46),and that of the TACE group was 63. 04%(29 / 46). The disease control rate of the combined group was higher than that of the TACE group (χ2 = 4. 449, P = 0. 035). Before treatment,the KPS scores of the combined group and the TACE group were 71. 84 ± 4. 37, 72. 22 ± 4. 26,with no statistically significant difference (t = 0. 423,P = 0. 673). After treatment,the KPS scores of the two groups were higher than those before treatment,and the KPS score of the combined group was higher than that of the TACE group (79. 81 ± 6. 15 vs. 75. 86 ± 6. 02;t = 3. 108,P = 0. 003). The incidence of complications was 54. 35% (25 / 46)in the combined group and 41. 30% (19 / 46)in the TACE group. The difference between the two groups was not statistically significant (χ2 = 1. 568,P = 0. 210). The median PFS and OS in the TACE group were 12. 6 and 20. 7 months,and those in the combined group were 18. 9 and 28. 2 months. The PFS and OS of the combined group were longer than those of the TACE group (χ2 = 72. 025, P < 0. 001;χ2 = 26. 580,P < 0. 001). Conclusion TACE combined with RFA is effective in the treatment of liver metastasis of colorectal cancer,which can effectively improve the KPS score of patients,prolong the PFS and OS,and do not increase the risk of complications.

ABSTRACT

The treatment modality of recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC) includes surgical resection, liver transplantation, ablation, interventional therapy, targeted therapy,and systemic chemotherapy. However,the complexity of disease condition often leads to unsatisfying outcome by single treatment, making multidisciplinary treatment an inevitable choice. Commonly used combined therapies are transarterial chemoembolization(TACE) combined with surgical resection,TACE combined with local ablation,and TACE combined with systemic treatment. In clinical practice,the goal of comprehensive treatment is prolonged survival and improved quality of life. Choosing different combination of therapies according to different liver function,general condition and recurrence of tumors can significantly improve the patients' survival.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of radiofrequency ablation(RFA) for complicated diffuse arteriovenous malformations.@*Methods@#From Dec. 2014 to Dec. 2016, 12 cases with complicated diffuse arterioveneous malformations were treated by RFA in our hospital. The clinical records were retrospectively reviewed. The lesion size ranged from 10 cm×7 cm to 28 cm×30 cm. Ablation procedures with " high power and long time" technique were performed under real time color Doppler monitoring. The impedance model were used and ablation needles were punctured into core lesions with the most abundant blood flow. Power was set as 90 to 110 W for central core lesions, and 60 to 80 W for superficial or surrounding lesions. The average ablation time was from 60 to 90 min (average, 75 min). Next treatment would be performed 3 months later when neccessary. The therapeutic efficacy was evaluated on a 4-level scale.@*Results@#Hyperpyrexia occurred in 1 patients during first and second treatments. Transient postoperative hemoglobinuria occurred in 2 patient. Full thickness defects induced by tissue necrosis in the original ulcer area of cheek occurred in 1 patient, which was reconstructed with pedicle Trapezius muscle myocutaneous flap. Bleeding symptom in 7 cases stopped after only 1 treatment. After a follow-up period of 1-3 years, the efficacy was graded as Ⅳ in 8 case, as Ⅲ in 4 cases.@*Conclusions@#For complicated diffuse arteriovenous malformations, radio frequency ablation with "high power and long time" technique under real time color Doppler monitoring can completely damage the deep core soft lesions, and control the life-threatening hemorrhage effectively, which can be recommended as the alternative therapy when surgery, interventional embolizationor or sclerosant injection can not control the lesions.

ABSTRACT

Objective To retrospectively analyze the therapeutic effect of endoscopic ablation combined with metal stent implantationon biliary obstruction caused by unrespectable cholangiocarcinoma. Methods Fourty-seven patients with unrespectable cholangiocarcinoma were enrolled in this study ,who were treated in our department from June 2013 to June 2016. Patients in the experimental group(n = 24)underwent ERCP combined with metal stent implantation for biliary tract ablation. Patients inthe control group(n=23)underwent ERCP with simple metal stent implantation. Liver function indicators,complications,patency rate and survival rate were analyzed between the two groups. Results A total of 51 patients were satisfactorily performed the operation of metal stent implantation. One week after operation,the levels of total bilirubin(TBIL),alkaline phosphatase(ALP),gamma-glu-tamyltransferase(GGT)and alanine aminotransferase(AST)in the experimental group were much lower than those in the control group(P<0.05,respectively). After 3-month follow-up,the patency rate in the experimental group was significantly greater than that in the control group(P<0.05). The patency and survival time of patients in the experimental group were significantly higher than thosein the control group ,with 8.56 ± 1.12 vs 5.73 ± 0.81 months and 13.88±1.45 vs 9.48±1.38 months,respectively(P<0.05). No postoperative bleeding,perforation and other se-rious complications were found in all cases,8 patients with postoperative biliary tract infection and the increased blood amylase received anti-infective treatments,such as inhibition of symptomatic improvement after treatment. Conclusion The results of endoscopic radiofrequency ablation combined with metal stent implantation for the treatment of unrespectable cholangiocarcinoma were significantly better than those of simple metal stent implantation.

ABSTRACT

Atrial Fibrillation(AF) and its complications are serious threat to human health and the radio frequency ablation (RFA) becomes one of the main therapies of AF. Conventionally, the RFA is performed by unipolar ablation mode. Because the unipolar ablation mode is point-to-point and incomplete linear lesion formation, the success rates of treatment on AF decline and the procedures are time consuming. In order to solve these shortcomings, the bipolar ablation mode and the multichannel frequency ablation method that facilitate the easy creation of linear lesion are presented, especially kinds of multichannel frequency ablation technique and applications are introduced in this paper.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To investigate the prognostic factors of primary liver cancer treated with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) combined with radiofrequency ablation (RFA), and then to establish a prognostic model.@*Methods@#Clinicopathological and follow-up data of 145 patients who underwent TACE combined with RFA from January 2010 to December 2012 were retrospectively analyzed. Univariate and multivariate survival analyses were performed using the Cox proportional hazards model, and the prognostic model was established.@*Results@#The 1, 2, and 3-year survival rates were 92.6%, 81.4% and 66.2%, respectively. The 3-year recurrence and metastasis rate was 64.8%.Multivariate analysis showed that female cases and higher serum albumin levels were the protective factors for the 3-year overall and relapse-free survival of patients(P<0.05 for all). High levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), total bilirubin (TBIL), portal vein thrombosis and higher Child Pugh stages were the independent risk factors for the 3-year overall survival(P<0.05 for all). High levels of AFP, TBIL, portal vein thrombosis and advanced stages of BCLC staging (B and C) were the independent risk factors for tumor recurrence and metastasis(P<0.05 for all). The predictive model established based on the multivariate analysis showed good sensitivity and specificity. The area under ROC curve were higher than 0.90.@*Conclusions@#The prognosis of liver cancer patients treated with TACE combined with RFA is affected by various clinicopathological factors. The systematic evaluation of the relevant factors before treatment may help to select proper patients and improve prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Background : This study was conducted to compare the conventional retrograde arterial approach (RAA) with the transeptal approach (TSA) for radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFA) of left accessory pathways (AP). Materials and Methods: Sixty consecutive patients (44 male; mean age of 35.60 ± 11.63 years) with 60 left APs (39 overt and 21 concealed) underwent catheter ablation using the TS method (30 patients) and the RA method (30 patients) in an alternate fashion. The analysis was performed according to the intention-to-treat principle. Results : The transeptal puncture was successfully performed in 29 patients (96%). This access allowed primary success in the ablation in all the patients without any complication. When we compared this approach with the RAA there was no difference as regards the primary success (p = 0.103), fluoroscopy time (p = 0.565) and total time (p = 0.1917). Three patient in the RAA group presented a vascular complication. The TSA allowed shorter ablation times (p=0.006) and smaller number of radiofrequency applications (p = 0.042) as compared to the conventional RAA. The patients who had unsuccessful ablation in the first session in each approach underwent with the opposite technique (cross-over), with a final ablation success rate of 100%. Conclusion : The TS and RA approaches showed similar efficacy and safety for the ablation of left accessory pathways. The TSA allowed shorter ablation times and smaller number of radiofrequency applications. When the techniques were used in a complementary fashion, they increased the final efficacy of the ablation.

ABSTRACT

Objective To compare the curative results of three different therapies for earlyintermediate stage primary liver cancer. Methods The data of 428 patients with early-intermediate stage primary liver cancer treated with one of three curative therapies from April 2004 to July 2010 in our center were analyzed retrospectively. The patients were divided non-randomly into three groups: group A liver-cancer resection (n = 231), group B radio-frequency ablation (RFA) (n = 63), and group C liver transplantation (n=134). The 1-, 3-, 5-year accululative survival and recurrence rate in each group were compared. Results The accumulative 1-, 3-, 5-year survival rates were 93.3%, 71.9%, 57.2% for group A; 86.7%, 46.5%, 38.8% for group B; 95.7%, 78.3%, 72.1% for group C,respectively. The 1-, 3-, 5-year recurrence rates were 30. 3% , 49. 7%, 68. 6% for group A; 39. 3% , 58. 7% , 79. 3% for group B; 7. 0% , 12. 1% , 12. 1% for group C,respectively. There was a highly significant difference between groups A, B and C in the survival rates and the recurrence rates. The 5-year survival rate was significantly higher for group C than group A and group B (P<0. 01, P<0. 001), and the recurrence rate of 1, 3, 5-years were significantly lower for group C than for group A and B (P<0. 001). Conclusion Liver transplantation was the most effective therapy for the early-intermediate stage primary liver cancer.
