CONCLUSIONS: An improved coordinated individual plan (CIP) process emerged, based on the active participation of users and caregivers. This process is a familiar and transparent process for users and caregivers, reflecting the needs and preferences of users at all stages. It requires careful preparation and collaboration with the users, as well as caregiver flexibility. PMID: 32940581 [PubMed - in process]

The objectives of this article are the following: 1) to examine fibromyalgia and somatic symptom disorder analogy. 2) to discuss stress-evoked neuropathic pain sexual dimorphism, and 3) to propose a neuropathic pathogenesis that may explain how stressed women could develop fibromyalgia. Recent research demonstrates a clear link between fibromyalgia and small fibre neuropathy. Dorsal root ganglia contain the small nerve fibre nuclei. In rodents, physical, chemical, or environmental stressors lead to dorsal root ganglia phenotypic changes and to hyperalgesia. This phenomenon is much more frequent in females. Prolactin, oestr...

Authors: van Campen C(MC, Rowe PC, Verheugt FWA, Visser FC Abstract OBJECTIVES: Muscle pain and fibromyalgia (FM) are common among individuals with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). We recently demonstrated that during orthostatic stress testing, adults with ME/CFS reported increased pain. In the current study, we hypothesised that pain pressure thresholds (PPT) would decrease and temporal summation (windup) would increase after head-up tilt testing (HUT), and that the presence of co-morbid FM would be associated with greater change in both measures. METHODS: We studied adult ME/CFS p...

Conclusions: The results indicate that fall risk measures within the ICF domains—body, structure, and function (dynamic gait stability and hip extensor strength) and activity limitation (TUG)—could provide a sensitive laboratory-induced slip-fall prediction model in PwCS.

Authors: Beshel JA, Beshel FN, Nwangwa JN, Asuquo IO, Ejim CI, Owu DU Abstract BACKGROUND: Antioxidants are beneficial in myocardial infarction (MI). It is suggestive that Theobroma cacao (TC) with rich antioxidant properties can be of health benefit in myocardial injury. AIM: The study investigated the effect of Theobroma cacao on cardioprotection in isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarc-tion in rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Male Wistar rats divided into four groups of 6 rats were used for the study. Group 1, the control was administered 0.9% normal saline placebo via oral gavage. Group 2 was the MI induce...

Overview of the safety and efficacy of the Surfacer® Inside-Out® Access Catheter System for obtaining central venous access in patients with thoracic central venous obstructions. Expert Rev Med Devices. 2020 Sep 17;: Authors: Razavi MK Abstract INTRODUCTION: The development of thoracic central venous obstruction (TCVO) leads to narrowing of the vessel lumen which impacts blood flow and the placement of central venous access. The most common cause of TCVO is central venous catheters (CVCs) which can induce intravascular scarring or endoluminal obstruction via thrombus formation. AREAS COVERE...

CONCLUSION: Although the results obtained have a poor statistical basis, they do suggest that the bioreactor could be usefully applied to stimulate constructs for tendon and ligament repair. Anyway, further experiments should be conducted in future. PMID: 32938254 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
