Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a severely disabling condition that typically develops after an inciting traumatic event. Ketamine infusion in subanesthetic dose provides sustained analgesia in selected cases of CRPS. In general, ketamine treatment does not significantly affect electrolyte or water balance. Here, we report a case of a CRPS patient on intrathecal baclofen pump developing syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone release (SIADH) during ketamine infusion. Prophylactic treatment with intravenous loop diuretics was successful in preventing the development of SIADH during ketamine infusion during s...

ObjectivesWe aim to investigate the correlation of smoking and spinal cord stimulation (SCS) effectiveness for pain relief in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) patients while controlling for possible confounding factors including opioid intake.Materials and MethodsFollowing Institutional Review Board approval, a retrospective cohort study was performed by collecting data for all CRPS patients treated with SCS at Cleveland Clinic between 1998 and 2013. We divided patients into three groups based on their smoking status at the time of SCS device implant: Current smokers, former smokers, or nonsmokers. We used a linear mi...

Discussion: In this cohort, pediatric CRPS was most common in girls around the age of 12, usually in the lower extremity, and most experienced a favorable outcome. Further research is needed to better understand the prognosis and relapse rate of pediatric CRPS.

Authors: Gofiţă CE, Ciurea ME, Dinescu ŞC, Vreju AF, Stoica LE, Ciurea RN, Boldeanu MV, Rogoveanu OC, Trăistaru MR, Bumbea AM, Ciurea PL, Muşetescu AE Abstract Metatypical basal cell carcinoma (MTBCC) is a rare form of tumor, which associates the clinical and histopathological (HP) characteristics of both basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), with a 5% chance for the development of metastases. The reference diagnosis remains the HP confirmation from the lesional tissue. The current report illustrates the case of a 74-year-old patient, diagnosed with MTBCC consequently to the biopsy from...

Publication date: Available online 24 October 2019Source: Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical AnalysisAuthor(s): Ulrich Schreiber, Christian Engl, Malte Bayer, Simone KönigAbstractRecently, we developed a bradykinin reporter assay and demonstrated the differing protease activity in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome patients vs. controls. In order to further characterize CRPS pathophysiology, the neuropeptide substance P was evaluated as possible reporter substance, here. It was labeled with a chromophore at the lysine residue and generated two major fragments following incubation with serum (amino acid residues 3-8 ...

ConclusionThis study showed that calcitonin could be helpful analgesic agent in different painful situations. Calcitonin can be considered an eligible treatment for acute pains related to vertebral fractures and a feasible alternative for the treatment of the acute and chronic neuropathic pains where other medications might fail.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosA calcitonina é um hormônio polipeptídico que regula o metabolismo do cálcio no organismo. Por muitos anos a calcitonina tem sido usada para manter e melhorar a densidade mineral óssea e reduzir a incidência de fraturas. Muitos ...

Authors: Aoun J, Hattar L, Dgaily K, Wong G, Bhat T Abstract Introduction: Transradial cardiac catheterization (TRA) was introduced in 1989 and has been universally used as an alternative approach to the traditional transfermoral access (TFA). Complications of TRA include asymptomatic and less likely symptomatic radial artery occlusion, nonocclusive radial artery injury, radial artery spasm, radial arterial perforation, radial artery pseudoaneurysm, arteriovenous fistula, granuloma formation, access-site bleeding, nerve damage, complex regional pain syndrome along with other rare complications. Areas covered: A lit...
