In the early 1980s, Karesen and colleagues (3) reported that the presence of microscopic CD at surgical resection margins was associated with increased postoperative CD recurrence
, and a wide resection with frozen section evaluation of the resection margins was recommended.
The current study was aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of CISC after internal optical uretherotomy in the treatment of urethral strictures in terms of stricture recurrence
Various clinical factors and echocardiographic features have been reported to independently predict the recurrence
of AF following elective cardio-version including; arrhythmia duration, type of arrhythmia, patient's age, anterio-posterior left atrial (LA) diameter, and left atrial (LA) size3-5.
In patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV), the HBV recurrence
also affects the posttransplant mortality, in addition to other effects.
The researchers found similar risks of recurrence
among patients with unprovoked and provoked VTE at 6-month follow-up, with rates per 100 person-years of 6.80 and 6.92, respectively.
It has high incidence and high recurrence
rate after treatment.
In this long-term update, patients with "good risk" DCIS defined by the research team as cancer found only on a mammogram or incidentally during a breast biopsy for another reason, continued to experience extremely low recurrence
12 years after breast conservation surgery.
Mariotto, Ph.D., from the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, and colleagues presented a novel method for estimating the risk for recurrence
. The method was based on an illness-death process coupled with a mixture cure model.
On multivariate analysis, lymph node involvement and loco-regional recurrence
were independent parameters related to decrease overall survival.
score is known to be prognostic and to be predictive of benefit from adding chemotherapy to endocrine therapy, Dr.
The radiological features were analyzed to clarify the correlation between these radiological factors and postoperative recurrence
of chronic subdural hematoma.
