Silence as the voice of trauma.

Silence as the voice of trauma. Am J Psychoanal. 2014 Jun;74(2):176-94 Authors: Ritter M Abstract Silence is a key to the unspoken world of the patient. Rather than interpreting silence as a defensive maneuver, the analyst may understand this disruption as a royal road to the patient's traumatic experiences. The author proposes to recognize traumatic silences in the analytic process and the transference as a re-experiencing of past, unpredictable traumatic affective states and memories. Silences in this context are both a repeat of a disconnecting experience as well as a manifestation of a silencing identification with the original silencer. The clinical material illustrates effects of a German mother's World War II (WWII) personal traumata and collective shame-based silence on her daughter's self and good object development. In the daughter's analysis, the patient and the analyst, who herself experienced similar WWII traumata, face the pain of trauma recovery and un-silencing. The author suggests that the deadening effect of past traumata may be reversed by an analytic process of re-membering and re-speaking for both the patient and analyst. This allows for a more transparent, subjective experience in the transference and a verbal integration of ego functions. PMID: 24882074 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Bak H, Bang S, Yoo S, Kim S, Lee SY Abstract The quadratus lumborum block (QLB), which is based on an easy fascial plane technique that has been reported to be effective in pain control after abdominal surgery. Here we report a case involving an 83-year-old man (weight: 64 kg) who received continuous transmuscular QLB as part of a multimodal analgesia after hardware removal and total hip arthroplasty. The patient received continuous infusion of 0.2% ropivacaine at 8 mL/h through an indwelling catheter in addition to patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with intravenous fentanyl and oral celecoxib. The area o...

The star of ER and The Good Wife is back – as a doctor fighting to save humanity. She gives her bodyguard the slip to talk about our imperilled planet – and her love of Sussex A-roadsBefore I meet Julianna Margulies, I spend three days staring at her bodyguard. He ’s impossible to miss: one of those men whose every attempt to blend in flounders. Margulies and I are in Lille, judges at the Series Mania television festival, although our experiences differ a little. My cloak of anonymity allows me to roam the city unpestered. Margulies, however, has been a TV mainstay for 25 years, with roles in two juggerna...

CONCLUSIONS: Surgical treatment of isthmic pars interarticularis fractures is safe and effective. Many surgical techniques exist, however minimally invasive techniques tend to provide additional clinical benefit. Moreover, fluoroscopically guided direct pars screw placement with use of recombinant human morphogenic protein, may provide the most benefit, especially in adolescent patients with high levels of physical activity.

Authors: Mohd Hashim MA, Linton T, Heraganahally S Abstract Reported here is a rare respiratory complication in a young primiparous woman in a remote community hospital in the Northern Territory, Australia. A Caucasian primiparous woman aged 23 years presented with chest pain following a very prolonged second stage of labour. On clinical examination a crunching and crackling sound was heard over the precordium, synchronous with the heartbeat (Hamman's sign). A chest radiograph confirmed the presence of pneumomediastinum. Complete resolution of symptoms and signs was achieved with supportive management. PMID: 31...

In this study we hypothesized that the alleviation of neurological symptoms long after internal carotid artery (ICA) stenting may be related to sustained improvement of cerebral perfusion. Thirty-four subjects (F/M; 15/19) with>70% stenosis of a single internal carotid artery and neurological symptoms, who underwent a carotid artery stenting procedure, were studied. Brain computed tomography perfusion (CTP) imaging was performed before and 3 years after ICA stenting. The following relative variables were compared: cerebral blood flow (rCBF), cerebral blood volume (rCBV), mean transit time (rMTT), time to peak (rTTP...

Authors: Morales-Lázaro SL, Rosenbaum T Abstract Cholesterol is the one of the major constituents of cell membranes providing these structures with a certain degree of rigidity. Proteins, such as ion channels, are molecules inserted in cell membranes and their activity is regulated by cholesterol and other molecules of a lipidic nature present in them. The molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of ion channels by lipids and similar molecules have been an object of study for several years. A little over two decades ago, the first mammalian member of the Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) family o...
