Efficacy of Argon Plasma Coagulation in the Treatment of Patients With Hemoptysis Caused by Endobronchial Malignancies

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, the safety and the main predictors of success of bronchoscopic Argon Plasma Coagulation in patients with hemoptysis caused by endobronchi...

Gas Embolism With Use of Argon Plasma Coagulation

The purpose of this study is to use transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) to determine the incidence, severity, and clinical significance of gas bubbles during argon plasma coagulation (A...

Endoscopic Argon Plasma Coagulation Vs. Control For Weight Regain After Gastric Surgery

Bariatric surgery procedures have consistently been demonstrated to reduce long-term co-morbidities and mortality. Despite its benefits, weight regain is common, usually initiating around ...

Photodynamic Therapy Using Porfimer Sodium in Treating Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer And Bronchial Disease

RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses a drug that becomes active when it is exposed to a certain kind of light. When the drug is active, cancer cells are killed. This may be effective again...

Photodynamic Therapy Using HPPH in Treating Patients With Stage 0 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses a drug, such as HPPH, that is absorbed by tumor cells. The drug becomes active when it is exposed to a certain kind of light. When the drug is active, ...

Argon plasma coagulation is an effective treatment for chronic radiation proctitis in gynaecological malignancy: An observational study.

Chronic radiation proctitis (CRP) develops in 5-15% of patients after pelvic radiatiotherapy with rectal bleeding as the main symptom. Reports suggest that Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC) can be an eff...

An endoscopic training and assessment model for argon plasma coagulation.

Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is a standard modality for the treatment of gastrointestinal bleeding. However, there are no metrics to assess technical proficiency. We aimed to determine if a Quick AP...

Comparison study of root canal disinfection by cold plasma jet and photodynamic therapy.

This study evaluated and compared the antibacterial effect of plasma and photodynamic therapy (PDT) in root canals infected with Enterococcus facials, for the first time.

Usefulness of a suction ball coagulation probe for hemostasis in complete VATS lobectomy for patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

In recent years, several reports have noted that the specific coagulation mode called "soft coagulation" with modern electrosurgical tools offers superior hemostasis. The "suction ball coagulation" (S...

Molecular Analysis of Plasma from Patients with ROS1-Positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

Circulating tumor DNA analysis is an emerging genotyping strategy that can identify tumor-specific genetic alterations in plasma including mutations and rearrangements. Detection of ROS1 fusions in pl...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses argon plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.

Ionized gases, consisting of free electrons and ionized atoms or molecules which collectively behave differently than gas, solid, or liquid. Plasma gases are used in biomedical fields in surface modification; biological decontamination; dentistry (e.g., PLASMA ARC DENTAL CURING LIGHTS); and in other treatments (e.g., ARGON PLASMA COAGULATION).

The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
