The role of conservative management in localized prostate cancer


, : The role of conservative management in localized prostate cancer. Cancer (Philadelphia) 74(7 SUPPL ): 2178-2181

The management of localized prostate cancer in the elderly is problematic. In many cases, death from other causes may occur before death from prostate cancer. Choosing the optimal therapy requires properly counseling patients about the relative risks and benefits from each treatment option, including watchful waiting. Conservative management is a reasonable alternative for managing this disease.

Right ventricular myocardial infarction (RVMI) is a complication of acute inferior myocardial infarction and sometimes causes severe hemodynamic disturbance. It is therefore important to promptly detect RVMI and assess the severity of right ventri...

The effects of the 5 gauss, 50 gauss and 500 gauss magnetic fields on the O2 consumption in P. laevis adults, at soil pH 3.8 and 7.0, were investigated. The O2 consumption was the highest at 5 gauss and pH 3.8, and lowest at 500 gauss and pH 7.0....
