Compared with historical controls, use of image-guidance during surgery led to improved rates of complete resection in locally advanced rectal cancer patients with recurrent disease, a single-center Dutch study found. Among patients with recurrent cancers, 78.9% achieved complete R0 resections when surgeons used an image-guided navigation system, as compared to a historical rate of 48.8%…

End of the Road for Endometrial Scratch in IVF?

Endometrial scratch did not improve first-time success with in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in a randomized, unblinded trial. Patients who received endometrial scratching -- in which the uterine lining is wounded slightly to facilitate embryo implantation -- had live birth rates comparable to patients who received routine care (38.4% v.s 37.1%,…
