Surgeons Use Glowing Tumor Technology to Remove Hidden Cancer
 
00:48
According to a new study, surgeons at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have been able to identify and remove cancerous nodules by making the cancerous tissue glow. The study involved the use of a near-infrared contrast agent, which makes tumor cells glow. Researchers combined PET imaging and IMI in 50 patients having surgery to remove lung nodules. Using this method, doctors have been able to identify as much as 91% of nodules, identifying some that were not previously undetected with just a PET scan alone. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/07/28/Surgeons-use-glowing-tumor-technology-to-remove-hidden-cancer/5421501261071/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

My specialty in our practice and my research interest is minimally invasive surgery for cancers of the prostate, kidney, bladder and testis. In addition to general urology training, I have completed a sub-specialty training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery. I would specifically would like to call your attention to a laparoscopic partial nephrectomy as well as needle-ablation techniques for the treatment of kidney cancer. Using these techniques I am able to treat the cancer without removing the entire kidney, thus preserving the long term kidney function and avoiding the need for dialysis or transplantation. These new procedures are associated with minimal pain and often do not require admission to the hospital at all. However, these surgeries are technically very complex and therefore are only available in a few university medical centers around the country.

In rural Nepal, an entire village shares a secret. Every family here has at least one member who has sold their kidney to traffickers. Each year, international organ trafficking gangs convince these poor people to give up a kidney. Sometimes the donors get paid for it, sometimes they don't. But the cost to their health can be devastating. Most of their kidneys end up in India, often in Kolkata, which has been nicknamed "The Great Kidney Bazaar". 101 East travels the kidney trafficking route, talking to the donors, police, brokers and doctors involved in this bloody black market.

"Innovation has always been one of the strong suits here at Penn, and in urology we endeavor to translate innovative techniques into common clinical practice." "I see patients mostly with urologic cancer, that is carcinoma of the prostate, it's probably the most common thing I see. Every patient should get the benefit of the expertise of the institutions. So if you put together the expertise of the 15 people, we truly cover every single area in adult urology with someone who is truly an expert and specifically trained in that area as well as the other areas of adult urology." "We now have four fully-trained robotic surgeons on staff, and each of the three hospitals; Pennsylvania Hospital, Presbyterian Penn Medical Center and the Hospital, the University of Pennsylvania, has trained robotics surgeons there that can do cancer robotic surgery on prostate, on bladder, on kidney." "We like to think of ourselves as an organ preservation center where we can, so in other words, kidney-sparing operations for kidney cancer, bladder-sparing operations and protocols for bladder cancer, obviously, the application of proton therapy to prostate cancer, a huge innovation; the largest proton treatment center in the world right across the street there, you know, just waiting to accept prostate cancer patients who are applicable for that and who want that therapy over others." "We're constantly trying to apply what has been proven to be applicable, successful, effective, have minimal risks to our patients, not just with cancer but with every other malady that we treat. If something is new and exciting, if it has backup to show that it's effective, then we'll apply it in our patients. We'll be the first in the area to do that, always." "I'm Alan Wein.

Yoga reduces prostate cancer-related fatigue
 
01:33
Researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania reported men with prostate cancer going through radiation therapy can benefit from yoga. They found that general quality of life and side effects were stable throughout radiation therapy while participating in yoga. The side effects remaining stable include fatigue, sexual health and urinary incontinence. Fatigue from cancer is very different from everyday fatigue. Everyday fatigue can usually be solved with rest, however cancer-related fatigue has been reported to lower the patients’ quality of life even more so than pain. Sixty to 90 percent of patients undergoing radiation report having fatigue. Erectile dysfunction is another common symptom reported by 21 to 85 percent of patients. Yoga in prostate cancer patients has been shown to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, increase blood flow and reduce fatigue. Seventy two percent of people practicing yoga are female and 18 percent are over the age 55, while the median age of diagnosis for prostate cancer is 66. ------------------------------------------ Subscribe to our channel: http://read.ht/fLZ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/htTweets Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hindustantimes Watch more videos at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/video hindustantimes.com © 2015

"My specialty is urology, but within urology I have a very narrow focus, which is minimally invasive prostate cancer surgery. And so I was lucky enough to be on the forefront of the experience with this technique and technology of robotic assistance surgery." "I've done over 2,200 of these robotic processes, technically operations, to date. This is one of the biggest experiences in the world with this procedure, and by far, the biggest experience in the local Philadelphia area." "Experience really sets us apart at Penn Medicine. I think that's the benefit to the patient, where we have clinicians who are very experienced at providing minimally invasive surgery for prostate cancer, for bladder cancer, for kidney cancer." "What gives me the most satisfaction after having done all of these operations is the very smooth course that most of the patients go through. The patients very often comment to me that they had zero pain going through the whole procedure. I still find that very difficult to believe sometimes, but I've had so many patients tell me that, that I really do believe it now." "I'm David Lee.

Can Yoga Help Combat Prostate Cancer
 
01:10
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine have found that yoga may help alleviate negative side effects of prostate cancer treatment. The phase II trial was designed to measure potential therapeutic effects of yoga on fatigue, erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence and overall quality of life in patients undergoing external beam radiation therapy for prostate cancer. Between October 2014 and January 2016, 50 prostate cancer patients who underwent between six and nine weeks of radiation were split into two groups, one practicing yoga and the other not. "At their baseline, before patients started treatment, patients in both groups were on the lower end of the scale, meaning they reported lower amounts of fatigue," Dr. Neha Vapiwala, associate professor of Radiation Oncology at Perelman, said in a press release. "But as treatment went on, we observed a difference in the two groups." "Levels of patient-reported fatigue are expected to increase by around the fourth or fifth week of a typical treatment course, but that did not happen in the yoga group," he said, adding that "both the severity of the fatigue as well as the patients' ability to go about their normal lives appeared to be positively impacted in the yoga group." The study found patients in the non-yoga group not only did not report decreased fatigue, but instead reported increasing fatigue as treatment progressed. Researchers also examined the effects yoga had on sexual health, in particular erectile dysfunction, which effects up to 85 percent of radiation therapy patients during treatment. The yoga group remained at baseline as far as erectile dysfunction but the non-yoga group declined below baseline during treatment. "Yoga is known to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, which is one of several postulated theories that may explain why this group did not demonstrate declining scores, as seen in the control group," Vapiwala said. "That may also explain the yoga patients' improved urinary function scores, another finding of this trial." Overall well-being also increased in both groups, but more quickly in the yoga group than the non-yoga group. The study was published in Radiation Oncology. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/04/06/Yoga-may-alleviate-prostate-cancer-treatment-side-effects-study-says/3521491500112/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Hung's Last Wish
 
16:30
The Freedom Foundation would like to share with you... ...the story of Tracy and Hung. Hung is 48 and dying from metastatic kidney cancer that has spread to his lungs, brain and has just hit his bones. Instead of enjoying Hung's last few days or months together with their children (aged 15, 7 and 4) they are struggling to make ends meet whilst Hung and Tracy's relationship hangs in the balance with all the financial tension and lack of security for their 3 young boys. They often are forced to accept food parcels from charity organizations, their church and teachers at the children's school. If it wasn't for the help of those around them they wouldn't be able to feed their children. However, the biggest of their stress is coming from the mortgage payments of their home. They are behind on their mortgage and are at risk of the bank taking their home away. And of course...the banks "cant do anything about it". We believe they should be able to appreciate the little time they have left together, but instead they are stressed out by their financial hardship. We can't bear watching this and have decided to do something about it - because sending them food and day to day assistance takes the pain away for an instant but not for the lifetime that Hung still has left.. We have decided to take on the mammoth task of raising $402,535 to help them pay off their mortgage and Hung's funeral costs....but we need your help. Hung's dying wish is that his wife and beautiful children (who ask for nothing) can at least remain in their house when he dies - the peace of mind that his wife and children have the security of a roof over their head is all he wants...and has ever wanted. That being said - it took us over a week to get their approval to share their story...they never ask for anything and are the most grateful family we have ever met. Please consider donating ANY amount big or small. Lots of hands make light work. Lots of people donating small amounts will make a huge difference. MORE IMPORTANTLY, please share with all your friends on Facebook, email, text etc. THANK YOU SO MUCH !! *The Freedom Foundation focuses on charitable giving and assistance for those families who have fallen through the Safety Net. For these situations the Freedom Club alone doesn't have the ability to turn their financial situation around so we bring the community in for assistance.
