Mridul Dhar, Yashwant S Payal, Vamshi KrishnaIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(12):930-933 Ultrasonography (USG) has a continuously expanding role in anaesthesiology, critical care and pain management and has enhanced and refined patient care. The Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act was established to counter the persistent problem of female foeticide in India. This unique problem which seems to be rooted in our social structure has indirectly impeded the evolution of USG as a widespread tool in medicine in our country. This brief review is aimed at highlighting the expanding role of USG in...

Joosten Despite increased attention to cancer pain, pain prevalence in patients with cancer has not improved over the last decade and one third of cancer patients on anticancer therapy and half of patients with advanced disease still suffer from moderate to severe pain. In this review, we explore the possible reasons for the ongoing high prevalence of cancer pain and discuss possible future directions for improvement in personalised pain management. Among possible reasons for the lack of improvement are: Barriers for patients to discuss pain with clinicians spontaneously; pain measurement instruments are not routinely ...

AbstractCalcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a 37-amino acid neuropeptide expressed both centrally and peripherally. CGRP has been shown to be involved in arteriolar dilation, cardiovascular regulation, pain transmission, migraine, and gastrointestinal physiology. Our current research is aimed at analyzing CGRP ’s impact on appetite/satiety, body metabolism, and energy homeostasis. Our study investigated the effects of a single-dose intraperitoneal (IP) treatment with CGRP on food and water consumption, energy expenditure, physical activity, respirometry, and a panel of plasma metabolic hormones in C57Bl /6 wild...

And people who firmly believe that All Pain Is X. Or Y. Or Z. And surely we should do what they say (pay the fee, get the certificate, perhaps even levels 3...

ConclusionArthroscopic knee debridement can provide good symptomatic relief and sustained benefits in significantly symptomatic patients with early degenerative knees who have failed conservative management. This is most useful in patients with mechanical symptoms secondary to degenerative meniscal tears or chondral flaps, and those with symptomatic patellofemoral osteoarthritis.
