CONCLUSIONS: The assessment of pain, sedation and delirium is demonstrated, and low percentages of agitation and delirium achieved. We observed a high percentage of patients with pain, and moderate use of PC. We should generalise the use of protocols to assess, prevent and treat pain and delirium by appropriately managing analgesia, sedation, and individual and well-considered use of PC.

Publication date: Available online 20 April 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Vishwaraj Ratha, V.R. Roopesh Kumar, Sudhakar Subramaniam, Senthil Kumar, Vijay Sankaran, K.R. Suresh BapuAbstractRe-appearance of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) pain following microvascular decompression (MVD) is a challenging issue. A selective ablation with MVD provides the best response in such recurrences. The absence of intra-operative indicator for immediate correction of sub-optimal decompression is the primary factor for failure.We analysed the effectiveness and safety of awake MVD in minimizing failure, by tailoring the ...

In this study, we aimed to review the medical literature on the benefits of surgical decompression surgery in patients with coexisting CS and MS. We systematically reviewed the literature for articles published prior to December 1st, 2018 describing outcomes (improvement of symptoms of radiculopathy, myelopathy, and neck pain) in patients with coexisting MS and CS undergoing cervical decompression surgery. Effect sizes were calculated demonstrating the effect of surgical decompression on improving symptoms. We identified eight articles that satisfied our selection criteria, of which six provided data regarding symptoms aft...

Conclusions: It suggested that smoke generated during moxibustion treatment does not affect the efficacy of moxibustion in the treatment of KOA, which should be taken into account to be removed for the sake of reducing environmental pollution or moxa smoke exposure of acupuncturists or patients. This trial is registered with Clinical, NCT02772055. PMID: 31001350 [PubMed]

In this study, we investigated if intestinal perforation occurred more frequently in patients with ectopic ACTH syndrome and in those with a greater than 10-fold elevation of 24-hour urinary free cortisol level. Of 110 patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome followed in two clinics in Canada, six cases with intestinal perforation were identified over 15 years. Age of patients ranged from 52 to 72, five females and one male, four with Cushing's disease and two with ectopic ACTH production, one from a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor and one from medullary carcinoma of the thyroid. Five had diverticular perforation an...

Abstract Background: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) had been proved to be beneficial in calcific tendinosis; however, the treatment efficacy in noncalcific tendinosis of rotator cuff still remains controversial. The present study was to compare the outcomes ESWT among the noncalcific rotator cuff tendinosis and different types of calcific tendinosis on the basis of similar shoulder functional status. Methods: A retrospective, comparative study was conducted with the enrollment of 20 patients in each group through propensity score matching in a 1:1:1 ratio from 291 patients who underwent single ESWT ...

Conclusion: The present study has the limitation of the small number of cases; however, with the limited number of studies and less than 100 published cases in the literature, this initial work shows that cervical percutaneous DiscoGel® is an effective minimally invasive bridging option between conservative and open surgical treatment for cervical discogenic pain, with a high success rate. The differentiation of pain types (nociceptive, referred, radicular, and trapezius myalgia) that can coexist is crucial for procedure selection and improving treatment outcome.
