One of the fundamental distinctions we need to make when working with people who experience pain is to understand the difference between experiencing pain – and the behaviour or actions or responses we make to this experience. This is crucial because we can never know “what it is like” to experience pain – and all we have to rely on as external observers is what we see the person doing. Differentiating between the various dimensions associated with our experience of pain makes it far easier to address each part in the distinct ways needed. Let me explain. We know the current definition of pain &ndas...

This study indicates that frailty and other age-related diseases could be prevented and significantly reduced in older adults. Getting our heart risk factors under control could lead to much healthier old ages. Unfortunately, the current obesity epidemic is moving the older population in the wrong direction, however our study underlines how even small reductions in risk are worthwhile." The study analysed data from more than 421,000 people aged 60-69 in both GP medical records and in the UK Biobank research study. Participants were followed up over ten years. The researchers analysed six factors that could impa...

Authors: Shahin M Abstract Calcified coronary lesions represents technical challenges and are associated with a high frequency of restenosis and target lesion revascularization.1 Rotational atherectomy has been shown to increase procedural success in severely calcified lesions, facilitate stent delivery in undilatable lesions and ensure complete stent expansion(2,3). However rotational atherectomy in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is traditionally avoided given the concern for slow or no reflow(4) and considerded as a contraindication by its manufacturer (Rotablator, Boston Scientific) in a lesion with ...

CONCLUSIONS: Based on the results with low rate of major adverse effects from multiple centers, we concluded that HIFU is safe in treating patients with benign uterine diseases. With development of this technique and more experience on the part of the physicians, the rates of the major adverse effects will be further lowered.

ConclusionsAt 6 months, she reported 100% improvement. Objectively, there was no indication that the disc condyle relationship was disrupted. At 6 months post-platelet-rich plasma injection, preceded by a period of conservative physical therapy management, and followed with appropriate physical therapy follow-up, this individual had complete resolution of her anterior disc derangement with reduction.

In this study, a sensitive, rapid and specific LC–MS/MS method for quantification of PX, VX and OH-VX in the plasma of tumor bearing mouse was developed and validated. After protein precipitation, all the analytes were separated on an Agilent ZORBAX Extend-C18 HPLC column (2.1 × 100 mm, 3.5 μm) with gradient elution. The analytes were detected by an electrospray negative ionization mass spectrometry in the multiple reaction monitoring mode. The transition m/z 369.0 → 119.0, m/z 312.9 → 117.9, m/z 329.0 → 196.0, and m/z 307.1 → 161.3 were used for monitoring PX, V...

Written by Pendell Meyers, with edits by Steve SmithA man in his 50s with history of CAD s/p CABG, CHF, and COPD presented after several falls attributed to acute generalized weakness.  Several had reportedly resulted in head trauma.  There was a normal neurologic exam.Here is his ECG:What do you think?Sinus rhythm at around 60 bpm. There is STD with " down-up " T-waves in V2-V6, or more accurately T-wave inversion followed by large U-waves. The morphology is classic for hypokalemia. The computerized QT interval and QTc were 676ms and 663ms, which is really a measure of the Q-U interval instead of the Q...

Authors: Pendharkar AV, Shahin MN, Cavallo C, Zhao X, Ho AL, Sussman ES, Grant GA Abstract Craniosynostosis (CS) is defined as the premature fusion of one or more calvarial sutures. This carries several consequences, including abnormal/asymmetric cranial vault development, increased intracranial pressure, compromised neurocognitive development, and craniofacial deformity. Definitive management is surgical with the goal of protecting cerebral development by re-establishing normal cranial vault expansion and correcting cosmetic deformity. In today's practice, CS surgery has advanced radically from simple craniectomie...
