The objective of this study was to examine the usefulness of these less invasive small-bore aspiration catheters for drainage of pneumothorax.MethodsBaseline characteristics and laboratory test data at admission of 70 patients who were admitted to and underwent drainage treatment for pneumothorax at our hospital between April 2011 and February 2017 were retrospectively reviewed based on their medical records. The primary endpoints were factors associated with drainage treatment failure, and baseline characteristics and laboratory test data were compared between those treated with a small-bore aspiration catheter and those ...

Berrigan, Curtis Whitehair, Richard ZorowitzAbstractDry needling is a procedure commonly performed for the relief of myofascial pain disorders. The procedure is generally well tolerated. Adverse events often are mild, but severe complications have been reported. This case report describes an acute spinal epidural hematoma as a complication of dry needling. It is a reminder to the performing physician or therapist to take specific precautions when placing a needle near the spine. Sudden onset of neuropathic pain post-needling therapy in and aro...

We present a 31 year-old woman with T3 AIS A spinal cord injury who developed recurrent AD while receiving duloxetine and amitriptyline combination therapy for neuropathic pain. After excluding other AD generators, duloxetine was discontinued and the AD episodes resolved. While secondary hypertension is a known side effect of amitriptyline and duloxetine, neither drug has been previously associated with AD. One potential mechanism for inhibition of duloxetine metabolism is discussed. Unexplained AD in at-risk patients receiving duloxetine and amitriptyline should prompt consideration of an adverse reaction to combination therapy.

We present a case of 20-year-old woman who presented with a large pedunculated skin covered mass lesion arising from the left thigh, measuring 40  × 25 cm, with no history of pain or skin ulceration and a feeling of a lump with dragging pain in the left side of the abdomen for about 7 years. Subsequently, ultrasound, contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging of abdomen and left thigh region were carried out. The lesion was broad-based toward the left upper thigh with a central core of interspersed fat supplied by branches of the superficial and deep femoral arteries...

We present a case of a 24-year-old female with known lymphangiomatosis, presenting with acute onset of lower extremity paresthesias, weakness, and new urinary retention. MRI of the pelvis revealed lymphangiomatosis of the sacral plexus, which has not been previously reported. We will review the clinical and imaging manifestations of lymphangiomatosis and provide a differential diagnosis for masses of the lumbosacral plexus. Although lower extremity pain and weakness encountered in the emergency department or outpatient setting is most frequently caused by lumbar spine pathology, occasionally, abnormalities of the lumbosacr...

We report an immunocompetent patient who presented with a rare form of cutaneous VZV infection of the upper leg characterized by vasculitic changes of the small vessels without typical herpetic epidermal features or neural involvement. Intriguingly, the vasculitis appeared prior to the characteristic vesicular rush without any pain symptoms. Because VZV can cause vasculopathic damage mainly within the central nervous system in immunocompetent and immunosuppressed patients, we recommend continuous clinical controls to recognize central symptoms that are related to VZV vasculopathy or giant cell arteriitis.

Emergency providers are likely to encounter sickle cell disease –related emergencies. The pathophysiology of emergent complaints are usually related to either an acute anemia or a vasoocclusive crisis. Differentiating between the two is the first step in the workup. Anemic crises must then be differentiated by the source. Vasoocclusive crises must be appropria tely treated with aggressive pain management, gentle hydration, and other appropriate adjuncts. Early recognition and treatment are key in providing excellent emergency care to those with sickle cell disease.
