Publication date: Available online 19 May 2018 Source:Joint Bone Spine Author(s): Clément Prati, Céline Demougeot, Xavier Guillot, Maxime Sondag, Frank Verhoeven, Daniel Wendling Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory joint disease that involves the entheses, causing inflammatory pain and functional impairments. Patients may experience extraarticular manifestations such as uveitis, psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease. These, together with the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis and the development of spinal fusion, are the main determinants of adverse disease outcom...

Publication date: Available online 19 May 2018 Source:The Veterinary Journal Author(s): Kate White, Mike Targett, John Harris Specific primary afferent fibres termed nociceptors are responsible for transmitting nociceptive information. Centrally the axonal terminals of these fibres synapse with secondary projection neurones in the spinal dorsal horn to transmit nociceptive information to the higher centres in the brain. Irrespective of the presence or absence of nociceptive inflow the activity of dorsal horn neurones is modulated by, amongst other things, local interneurones and descending midbrain and brainstem networks ...

Authors: Amagasaki K, Nagayama M, Watanabe S, Shono N, Nakaguchi H Abstract Microvascular decompression (MVD) is widely accepted as an effective surgical method to treat trigeminal neuralgia (TN), but the risks of morbidity and mortality must be considered. We experienced a case of acute angle-closure glaucoma attack following MVD for TN in an elderly patient, considered to be caused by lateral positioning during and after the surgery. A 79-year-old female underwent MVD for right TN in the left lateral decubitus position, and TN disappeared after the surgery. Postoperatively, the patient tended to maintain the left...

CONCLUSION: PAT performed in a clinic setting is both safe and efficacious with results comparative to that performed in theatre. There was no difference in post-operative complications or recurrence. Parental satisfaction to this procedure is excellent. There are significant financial advantages. Based on this data, our institution now performs all releases in an outpatient setting. PMID: 29771901 [PubMed - in process]

(Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2017;217(3):303–313) Preemptive analgesia, which may include multimodal pain management, is administered before surgery and is believed to prevent central sensitization. This can include narcotic or non-narcotic medications and may be administered in many ways. This systematic review used current studies of women receiving preemptive medication for abdominal hysterectomy, with a primary outcome of pain control. The aim was to determine the best method of pain control while decreasing narcotic consumption and adverse events.

(Anaesthesia. 2017;72(8):1016–1028) Guidelines from both the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommend epidural analgesia as the most effective and flexible analgesic option for labor pain management, but some laboring women have contraindications to neuraxial analgesia and others may prefer alternatives. This Cochrane systematic review analyzed the effectiveness of intravenous remifentanil patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) compared with other labor analgesia techniques as measured by patient satisfaction and adverse maternal or neonatal effects.

Authors: Khoury M, Caspi S, Stalnikowics R, Peless E, Raiizman E, Salameh S Abstract BACKGROUND: Acute musculoskeletal pain is one of the most commonly reported symptoms among patients visiting the emergency department (ED). Treatment with over-the-counter pain medications, given by nurses, results in improved pain management and reduces the waiting time to drug administration without significant side effects. Opioid analgesics are extensively used for acute pain in the ED. Compared to morphine, oxycodone has a much more specific pharmacological activity, higher analgesic potential, and more tolerable side effects....

Percutaneous liver biopsies have been a safe and effective diagnostic procedure for more than 100 years [1,2]. Liver biopsies are well tolerated, with a low complication rate ranging from 0.1% to 5.8% in adults [3-13]. The most common biopsy complications are bleeding and pain [6,10-11], mostly occurring within 24 hours of the procedure [10,12,13]. Although only a few studies have specifically addressed the length of the recovery period after biopsy, those that do  report ranges of 1 to 8 hours, with 2 to 4 hours most common [3,4,6-8,10,14].
