For some of you, the New Year has already started, but I’ve been in a lovely position where I’ve been on leave and haven’t yet started “work” – though the work of living is always present! It’s traditional at this time to year to review the past year and plan for the coming months, so today’s post is a few musings on both. Last year I noticed I’d been working on this blog for nearly 10 years! Astonishing really, because it was intended to be a learning experience for me during my recovery from a mTBI. It kinda grew like Topsy, and here I am 10 years down the road still ...

This study primarily aimed to determine whether the perfusion index (PI) can be used an alternative to Horner's signs in evaluating the efficacy of SGB in patients diagnosed with RP. In a total of 40 patients, aged 18-65 years and diagnosed with primary RP, SGB was applied for 5 days on the same side with the 2-finger method, using 6 mL of 5% levobupivacaine at the 7th cervical vertebra level. The PI values were recorded from the distal end of the 2nd finger of the upper extremity on the side applied with the block at baseline and at 5, 15, 30, 60 and 120 min. The onset time of Horner findings was recor...

CONCLUSIONS: The PFS of progressive RAI-refractory DTC patients treated with sorafenib was consistent with the findings of the DECISION trial. Disease-related symptom, lung-only metastasis, a daily maintenance dose, and Tg reduction were significantly associated with PFS. These results suggest that sorafenib is an effective treatment option for patients with progressive RAI-refractory DTC. PMID: 29350109 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study evaluated the preoperative features for predicting the LCLN metastasis of MTC. Methods We included 26 MTC patients with LCLN metastasis at initial surgery (N1b group) and 47 MTC patients without any LN metastasis or recurrence of disease (N0-NED group). We evaluated the association between LCLN metastasis and preoperative clinical and sonographic characteristics (size, location, solid component, shape, margin, echogenicity, calcification, and subcapsular location of the tumor). Results There were no significant differences in age and sex between the N1b and N0-NED groups. Preoperative serum levels of calcitonin ...

When our children exhibit disruptive behavior and appear to be out of control, we can feel helpless and sometimes hopeless. When we realize that their actions are no longer isolated events but have become part of a distressing routine, our mind may come up with myriad of solutions. When our children have anxiety and we know that this a contributing factor, our amazing problem-solving machine — the mind, might also say to us, “You are a terrible parent. It’s your fault.” This is a thought that our mind is providing to help us make sense of the situation. It is only trying to find a solution to match ...
