English term or phrase:cold cup
Si tratta di un tipo di pinze bioptiche: "cold cup biopsy forceps"
"multiple cold cup biopsies"
"...biopsies were obtained endoscopically using cold cup technique and processed using standard methods"
" This lesion was removed using cold cup biopsy forceps..."
Explanation: Ciao Gilberto,
mi sarebbe piaciuto ricambiare l'aiuto che mi hai dato in varie occasioni, per cui ho fatto un po' di ricerche. Non sono riuscita a trovare il corrispondente italiano, però ho trovato qualche spiegazione in inglese. Spero di esserti stata utile anche in minima parte. Fammi sapere come lo traduci...
biopsies obtained by a hot wire loop denudation most likely results from
thermal injury when there is a low risk of subsequent carcinoma in situ.
When the denuded biopsy sample was obtained by cold cup biopsy,
particularly when associated with a history of carcinoma in situ, most
cases represent neoplastic cell denudation and a high risk for
subsequent carcinoma in situ.
The standard procedure for diagnosis and staging of bladder cancer is cystoscopy and bimanual examination under anesthesia (EUA). All visible tumors should be removed, and multiple random biopsies of the bladder wall, including the trigone and prostatic urethra, should be performed to rule out the presence of CIS or dysplasia. Cold-cup biopsy is preferred to avoid the effects of cautery, and the biopsy should extend deep into the muscle layer to enable determination of the depth of tumor invasion.
The patient usually presents with hematuria, and the initial evaluation consists of cytologic analysis of a urine specimen and cystoscopy with cold cup biopsy, a technique in which a cup-shaped device is used to obtain urothelium without electric current.
