Purpose/Objective: Acupuncture is known to reduce various clinical signs and symptoms, for example pain or fatigue. Often patients treated with radiation therapy (RT) suffer from side effects such as fatigue, nausea/vomiting or reduction of quality of life (QOLQoL). Few randomized data is available to define the role of acupuncture in the context of radiation oncology as a supporting treatment. The ROSETTA (RandOmized Study Exploring the combination of radioTherapy with Two types of Acupuncture treatment) is a prospective randomized phase II trial. Ittrial examines if traditional (verum-) acupuncture can reduce radiotherapy (RT)-related side effects significantly in comparison to sham (false-) acupuncture.
Two of the procedures most often performed on a Raynaud’s syndrome patient are chemical injections and nerve surgery. The nerve surgery is called a sympathectomy. During this procedure small incisions will be made on the affected area and a doctor or surgeon will remove the little nerves around the small blood vessels. While this treatment is not always successful, it is used to reduce the frequency and severity of a Raynaud’s attack. The other treatment for Raynaud’s syndrome is a chemical injection.

There is a vast amount of grey area with this subject matter. Generally hemiarch replacement seems to be a temporary fix. Those with a milder case of aortic dissection could have ultimately positive results with hemiarch surgery, but type A aortic dissection is not a mild disease. Though total arch replacement is an extensive, complicated and risky surgery, I think it is the best route for assuring the patient will not have to endure future procedures due to their false lumen from the dissection not being entirely thrombosed. Yes, total arch surgery has a high risk of death during or soon after operation but total arch surgery can be performed with slight variations in stenting and grafting that can make it much safer.
There were no remarkable changes in the anorectal physiology, and there have been no side effects. If the patient has obstructive defecation-related to animus, biofeedback is very likely to improve his symptoms.
