Healthy Living: Tumor Removal

Patients with colon tumors, or colorectal cancer, may sometimes face a difficult treatment depending upon the location and size of the lesion.

In Healthy Living, we show you how a newly FDA-approved flex robotic scope is helping colorectal surgeons see and remove tumors in a minimally-invasive way. 

Although Kelly’s tumor was benign, surgeons can use the robot for the removal of cancerous lesions.

Dr. Salgado says patients with advanced rectal cancer are not good candidates for this surgery right now, but it may be an option in the future.

Healthy Living – July 10, 2018

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Despite considerable effort and significant therapeutic advances, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) remains the most common cause of blindness in the developed world.

Progressive late-stage AMD with outer retinal degeneration currently has no proven treatment, and there has been significant interest in the possibility that cellular treatments may slow or reverse visual loss in AMD. A number of modes of action have been suggested, including cell replacement and rescue, as well as immune modulation to delay the neurodegenerative process. Their appeal in this enigmatic disease relate to their generic, non-pathway-specific effects. The outer retina in particular has been at the forefront of developments in cellular regenerative therapies being surgically accessible, easily observable, as well as having a relatively simple architecture. Both the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and photoreceptors have been considered for replacement therapies as both sheets and cell suspensions.

Studies using autologous RPE, and to a lesser extent, foetal retina, have shown proof of principle. A wide variety of cell sources have been proposed with pluripotent stem cell-derived cells currently holding the center stage. Recent early-phase trials using these cells for RPE replacement have met safety endpoints and hinted at possible efficacy. Animal studies have confirmed the promise that photoreceptor replacement, even in a completely degenerated outer retina may restore some vision. Many challenges, however, remain, not least of which include avoiding immune rejection, ensuring long-term cellular survival and maximizing effect.

In this week’s “Healthy Living” semgnet, Marni Hughes focuses on the role of doctors in prescribing opioids.

As you know, the opioid epidemic has been impacting communities and families nationwide. Dr. Mike Hooten with the Mayo Clinic says there are times when prescribing opioids is safe and times when it puts the patient (and others) at risk.

Dr. Hooten says the medical community needs to take all factors into consideration when coming up with a patient plan, including substance abuse and family history of addiction, environment and stress. He also says it’s important doctors and patients share a goal of managing pain and not eliminating pain.
