JAAPA CME Post-Test November 2020
Efficacy of Prostatic Urethral Lift Compared with Transurethral Resection of the Prostate
This activity reviews the prostatic urethral lift (PUL) and its potential benefits and risks compared with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). TURP is the traditional procedure for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and is associated with ejaculatory and erectile dysfunction. PUL is a minimally invasive option, but its efficacy has not been well studied. A literature review indicates that both procedures should be afforded equal consideration, and both have limitations. Further long-term research is needed to establish if PUL is superior to TURP.
Recognition of Oral Potentially Malignant Disorders and Transformation to Oral Cancer
Oral potentially malignant disorders refer to oral mucosal disorders with increased risk for malignant transformation, primarily to oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Leukoplakia and erythroplakia are the most common of these disorders, but others have been identified. Transformation rates to oral cancer vary based on multiple factors. Healthcare providers should be aware of risk factors and clinical manifestations of these disorders and should intervene early to monitor and/or treat them to reduce the potential for malignant transformation.
