Authors: Skok P, Kristijan S Abstract Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease. The disease is characterized by acute exacerbations with diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, anorexia, intestinal bleeding, and weight loss. Immune-mediated diseases that are frequently associated with Crohn's disease include arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, episcleritis, uveitis, and skin lesions, such as erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. The authors present the case of a 22-year-old female patient that was admitted to their hospital due to diarrhea, fever, arthralgias, and diffuse erythematous papu...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Gluten intolerance is a sensitivity to a family of proteins found in grains like wheat, rye and barley. It can cause symptoms that include bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation. It now seems that gluten can affect more than just the person who eats it, reports Dr. Max Gomez. Danish scientists, after analyzing data from thousands of pregnant women, say a high gluten diet may put offspring at higher risk for type 1 diabetes. Doctors say children of women with the highest intake of wheat, rye, and barley proteins had double the diabetes risk. ...

Publication date: Available online 22 September 2018Source: Journal of Visceral SurgeryAuthor(s): C. Chater, A. Saudemont, P. ZerbibSummaryRadiation enteritis is an iatrogenic disease of the intestines caused by radiation therapy. Two entities, chronic and acute radiation enteritis, are described. The acute symptoms (abdominal pain, loss of appetite, diarrhea) develop within the first hours or days after radiation therapy and can be treated medically. Chronic radiation enteritis leads to a chronic sub-obstructive and/or malabsorption syndrome developing at least two months after the end of radiation therapy. Cases occurrin...

Background and Objectives Pain scores are routinely reported in clinical practice, and we wanted to examine whether this routinely measured, patient-reported variable provides prognostic information, especially with regard to chronic opioid use, after taking preoperative and perioperative variables into account in a preoperative opioid user population. Methods In 32,874 preoperative opioid users undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty at Veterans Affairs hospitals between 2010 and 2015, we compared preoperative and perioperative characteristics in patients reporting lower versus higher acute pain (scores ≤4/10 v...

Background and Objectives Despite the observation that select nicotine receptor agonists have analgesic effects, smokers report higher pain scores and more functional impairments than lifelong nonsmokers, attributable to exaggerated stress responses, receptor desensitization, and altered pharmacokinetics compounded by accelerated structural damage resulting from impaired bone healing, osteoporosis, and advancement of disk disease. We hypothesized that smoking diminishes the analgesic response to spinal cord stimulation (SCS) in patients with chronic spine–related pain conditions. Methods A retrospective cohort s...

Conclusions This study validates the ability of hypertonic saline to increase in vivo RF lesion size. With further refinement, MRI may be a viable method to assess RF lesion size.

Conclusions MILD showed excellent long-term durability, and there was no evidence of spinal instability through 2-year follow-up. Reoperation and spinal fracture rates are lower, and safety is higher for MILD versus other lumbar spine interventions, including interspinous spacers, surgical decompression, and spinal fusion. Given the minimally invasive nature of this procedure, its robust success rate, and durability of outcomes, MILD is an excellent choice for first-line therapy for select patients with central spinal stenosis suffering from neurogenic claudication symptoms with hypertrophic ligamentum flavum. Clinical ...

Conclusions This study suggests that local vancomycin should be added to systemic vancomycin to reduce SSI with cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator, implantable pulse generator of neurostimulator, or intrathecal pump implants.
