The liver is the most common and important site of metastases for colorectal cancer, and liver metastasis is one of the important factors leading to treatment failure in colorectal cancer. The traditional methods for treating liver metastases of colorectal cancer (CRLM) are not satisfactory and are often associated with a poor prognosis. High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as a new technique for local ablation of solid tumors not only has advantages of less trauma, fewer complications, faster recovery and definite tumor necrosis, but also can preserve and enhance the host anti-tumor immunity. In recent years, HIFU ablation has been increasingly used for the therapy of tumors in clinical settings. This paper gives an overview of mechanisms of action and application status of HIFU in the treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastases, and explores current challenges and future perspectives. © 2014 Baishideng Publishing Group Co., Limited.

AIM: To observe the application of anterior chamber air in avoiding hyphema after operation of small incision extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) and intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 25 patients who were performed anterior chamber air before the finish of surgery to keep intraocular hypertension temporarily so as to avoid hyphema after operation of small incision ECCE and IOL. RESULTS: There were 2 cases hyphema out of 25 patients. The air in the anterior chamber was absorbed in 2-5d after surgery. CONCLUSION: The application of anterior chamber air can avoid hyphema after operation of small incision ECCE and IOL. Source
