Teaching NeuroImages: Classic Ramsay Hunt syndrome and associated MRI findings
An 85-year-old woman with dementia presented with left ear pain, vertigo, and mild left peripheral facial weakness of unclear chronicity. MRI demonstrated contrast enhancement of cranial nerves (CNs) VII and VIII consistent with Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS)1 (figure 1). She was treated with steroids and acyclovir. On evaluation 4 days later, she had developed the classic RHS triad of ear pain, ipsilateral facial paralysis, and vesicular rash, plus hyperacusis and persistent vertigo (figure 2).2

Authors: Mao X, Xia B, Zheng M, Zhou Z Abstract More and more studies show that inflammation, pain and insomnia have become the main common diseases. Effective treatments of inflammation, pain and insomnia have become an issue of primary concern in clinical practice. Oleuropein (OLE), the main phenolic component of Mediterranean extra virgin olive oil, has shown many pharmacological properties. In the present study, the anti-inflammatory effect of OLE was firstly evaluated using RAW264.7 macrophages subjected to stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPSC). The results obtained revealed that OLE caused significant an...
The objective of this study was to bridge the information gap regarding ACEs in the chronic pelvic pain (CPP) population by (1) describing ACE prevalence in women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP), and (2) comparing ACE prevalence in women with CPP to unaffected controls.
To describe postoperative pain and functional activity after transvaginal native tissue reconstructive surgery with apical suspension and retropubic synthetic midurethral sling (MUS) and to compare these outcomes between patients receiving uterosacral ligament suspension (USL) and sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSLF).
To compare the effect of onabotulinumtoxinA versus placebo injections to the pelvic floor in women with myofascial pelvic pain.
To determine whether, “ICE-T,” a novel opioid sparing multimodal postoperative pain regimen is superior to the “Standard” postoperative pain regimen in patients undergoing inpatient vaginal pelvic reconstructive surgery.
This is an educational video designed to describe indications for surgical intervention in the setting of chronic pelvic pain, and to outline tips and tricks for a thorough and successful diagnostic laparoscopy to evaluate for endometriosis.
to demonstrate use of transvaginal laparoscopy and preoperative and intraoperative ultrasound to determine whether TVH can be done in women with chronic pelvic pain or multiple prior C-sections or whether laparoscopic assistance will be needed.
Dr. Brennan M. Spiegel and his research team at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have been experimenting with virtual reality (VR) for years. I had a fruitful and very exciting correspondence with him about moments of immersion, virtual pharmacies or how to travel to Iceland without leaving your hospital bed. Read on! VR is an area of endless possibilities VR has not just moved the imagination of science-fiction fans, but also clinical researchers and real life medical practitioners. As a doctor, you could assist in the OR without ever lifting a scalpel. If you are a medical student, you could study the human body more...
Abstract The care of elderly patients will continue to challenge the healthcare system over the next decades. As a rule geriatric patients suffer from multimorbidities with complex disease patterns, and the ability to cope with everyday life is severely reduced. Treatment is provided by a multiprofessional geriatric team, and the primary goal is improvement of functional status, quality of life in the social environment and autonomy by employing a holistic approach. In Germany geriatric care is provided by physicians from various medical specialties (e.g. general practitioners, internists, neurologists and psychia...
