Deglutition syncope.

Deglutition syncope. Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2017 Jul;30(3):293-294 Authors: Patel N, Ibrahim S, Shah J, Orellana-Barrios MA, Paterick TE, Tajik AJ Abstract Deglutition syncope, also known as swallow syncope, is a neurally mediated reflex syndrome. The common intervention of the heart, esophagus, and stomach by the vagus nerve is central to its pathogenesis, whereby swallowing causes inhibition of the cardiac conduction system. It is most commonly associated with disorders of the esophagus, both organic and functional. Herein we describe the case of a 48-year-old man presenting with transient syncopal episodes that occurred while eating caused by an intrathoracic stomach due to a hiatal hernia.

CONCLUSION: Introduction of DMEK in a single center can be implemented in a relatively short period of time, becoming the most popular surgical procedure in corneal transplantation. A possible factor encouraging this change is the availability of eye bank-delivered precut tissue, and standardization of donor preparation and host surgical steps, optimizing surgical time in the operating room. This trend should lead to better visual outcomes, faster recovery times, and eventually to a higher surgical volume per year. PMID: 31831273 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Electrical stimulations of dorsal cutaneous nerves (DCNs) at each lumbothoracic spinal level produce the bilateral cutaneus trunci muscle (CTM) reflex responses which consist of two temporal components: an early and late responses purportedly mediated by Aδ and C fibers, respectively. We have previously reported central projections of DCN A and C fibers and demonstrated that different projection patterns of those afferent types contributed to the somatotopic organization of CTM reflex responses. Unilateral hemisection spinal cord injury (SCI) was made at T10 spinal segments to investigate the plasti...

CONCLUSIONS: Neonatal screening with the red reflex is not sufficient to detect intraocular disease. A normal neonatal red reflex does no exclude intraocular disease. It has a specificity of nearly 90%, but its sensitivity is only 56%. Most retinal haemorrhages are undiagnosed as they cannot be detected with a red reflex.

The initial approach should focus on excluding non-syncopal causes for loss of consciousness and risk stratification for a cardiac cause, in order to ensure an appropriate etiological inv...
