Diagnosis and Treatment of Pediatric Necrotizing Fasciitis: A Systematic Review of the Literature

Conclusions Pediatric NF has distinguishing features that differ from adult NF. Knowledge of these details should increase early diagnosis and improve treatment.[...]Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals:Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

ConclusionSubstantial agreement exists among experts regarding many strong recommendations for the improvement of practice concerning the use of muscle relaxants and reversal agents during anaesthesia. In particular, the French Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (SFAR) recommends the use of a device to monitor neuromuscular blockade throughout anaesthesia.

Conclusions: Aside from ROM preservation at both C2-7 and TDR levels, COR restoration from ventrocranial location close to normal coordinates by posterior and inferior shifts was marked as a clinical success after MCTDR. The COR position along the x-axis after MCTDR was an important factor to determine maintenance of C2-7 ROM. PMID: 31940714 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Our evidence suggests that the L5-KAL can serve as an indicator of the thoracic curve change in Scheuermann's disease and postural kyphosis patients and should be considered in clinical practice. PMID: 31940713 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS The results of this prospective study confirm that the Group 1 having undergone the 6-weeek long combined symptomatic non-operative therapy of GPS proposed by us showed a statistically significant improvement in all the parameters assessed by HAGOS and these values showed no statistically significant difference from those of the Control Group of healthy individuals. Key words: Groin Pain Syndrome (GPS), professional football player, HAGOS (Copenhagen Hip and Groin Outcome), symptomatic therapy. PMID: 31941572 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Štulík J, Huvar P, Nesnídal P Abstract PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Atlantoaxial Rotatory Dislocation (AARD) mostly occurs in children and prevailing majority of cases are successfully managed by non-operative treatment. Surgical intervention is necessary in patients in whom non-operative treatment failed, in case of repeated dislocations and in patients with anatomical defects of the atlantoaxial complex. The purpose of the presented study is the radiological and clinical evaluation of patients with AARD surgically treated at our department. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the period from 2001 to 201...

Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Neuroscience ResearchAuthor(s): Zhaofa Wu, Yulong LiAbstractPurinergic transmitters such as adenosine, ADP, ATP, UTP, and UDP-glucose play important roles in a wide range of physiological processes, including the sleep-wake cycle, learning and memory, cardiovascular function, and the immune response. Moreover, impaired purinergic signaling has been implicated in various pathological conditions such as pain, migraine, epilepsy, and drug addiction. Examining the function of purinergic transmission in both health and disease requires direct, sensitive, non-invasive too...

Publication date: Available online 16 January 2020Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Waqas Ullah Khan, Giorgia Michelini, Marco BattagliaAbstractPain often co-occurs with depression and anxiety, and together cause considerable social and economic burden. Twin studies have investigated the aetiology of these covariations. However, to our knowledge, no systematic review examining the covariation between these conditions has been conducted. We searched the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, EMBASE, MEDLINE, and PsychInfo for twin studies examining the covariation between pain with depression and/o...

In this study, we found that TLR2 was expressed in mouse dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and trigeminal ganglia (TG) neurons. Itch and pain behaviors, including histamine-dependent and histamine-independent acute itching, acetone/diethyl ether/water and 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene-induced chronic itching and inflammatory pain, were largely attenuated in TLR2 knockout (KO) mice. The TLR2 agonist Pam3CSK4, which targets TLR2/1 heterodimers, evoked pain and itch behavior, whereas lipoteichoic acid (LTA) and zymosan, which recognize TLR2/6 heterodimers, produced only pain response. The TLR2 agonist-induced nociceptive and pruritic beha...

In conclusion, acute exercise may have an effect on nociceptive processing in the sensorimotor cortex on oscillatory level. Research on cortical oscillations analyzing interaction between nociception and exercise is limited. This study presents results indicating brain oscillatory activity as a feasible research target for examining mechanisms interacting between exercise and cortical nociceptive processing.
