Lower urinary tract dysfunction in normal pressure hydrocephalus: Review of the literature.

CONCLUSION: There is actually an insufficient concern about urinary symptoms in normal pressure hydrocephalus. This article highlights the importance of a harmonization of neuro-urological practices in the pre-therapeutic evaluation of patients suffering from normal pressure hydrocephalus.

In this study, we investigated whether parental hypertension induces autonomic dysfunction in male adult offspring, and the H2S mechanism underlying this autonomic dysfunction. 2-kidney-1-clip method was employed to induce parental hypertension during pregnancy and lactation in rats. Basal blood pressure (BP) and autonomic function of male offspring in adulthood was evaluated. Additionally, either maternal hypertensive dams or their male offspring after weaning were treated with H2S to determine improving effects of H2S on autonomic dysfunction. The BP was significantly increased in male offspring of renovascular hypertens...

Nascimento, Filipe Menegatti de Melo, Francisco J. Quintana, Patrícia C. Brum, Alexandre S. BassoSummaryNoradrenaline (NE), the main neurotransmitter released by sympathetic nerve terminals, is known to modulate the immune response. However, the role of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) on the development of autoimmune diseases is still unclear. Here, we report that the SNS limits the generation of pathogenic T cells and...

Conclusions: From our literature review, we posit that norepinephrine may be the vasopressor of choice, that spinal parenchymal pressure monitors can be safely placed at the injury site, and that the combination of MAP elevation and cerebrospinal fluid drainage may improve neurologic outcome more than either intervention alone.

Doesn’t it seem like Botox is showing up everywhere as a medical treatment? Botox is a brand of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), a protein substance originally derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In its original form it was the toxin responsible for botulism, the paralyzing illness often caused by eating contaminated food. BoNT is now used to treat a number of medical conditions including muscle spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and some eye muscle conditions. However, one of its most common uses is in the preventive treatment of chronic migraine. Chronic migraine, defined as headache occurrin...

Conclusions Stroke involving the basal ganglia best differentiates CNSTB patients who are HIV+ from those HIV-. This finding was not correlated with meningeal enhancement suggesting that small arteries involvement might precede it. Therefore, we think that HIV+ patients with a new onset of stroke should be evaluated for CNSTB. Follow-up MRI should also be planned since meningeal enhancement might appear in later stages of the disease.

ConclusionChronic metformin presented anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and, independently of alterations in glycaemia, it improved cardiac autonomic parameters that are impaired in hypertension, being related to end-organ damage and mortality. These findings open up perspectives for future innovative uses of metformin in cardiovascular diseases, especially in hypertension.Graphical abstract
