Impulse Control Disorders in Parkinson's Disease. A Brief and Comprehensive Review
Conclusions The treatment used for PD, particularly DA, is associated with the development of ICDs and related behaviors. Susceptibility to these disorders depends on the associated risk factors. ICDs can have serious personal, family, psychosocial, financial, and medical consequences. However, in contrast, artistic activities have been described in patients with PD while undergoing treatment with DA. These patients are compulsive but report a positive influence on quality of life. These findings highlight the need for a very critical approach at the moment of Dopaminergic Replacement therapy choice. Author Contributions EG: study concept, design, and editing.

CONCLUSION: Subcutaneously anchored securement is a very promising strategy for avoiding dislodgment. Further studies are warranted, in particular for the purpose of defining (a) the best management of the anchoring device so to avoid local problems, (b) the patient populations in which it may be considered highly cost-effective and even mandatory, (c) the possible benefit in terms of reduction of other catheter-related complications such as venous thrombosis and/or infection, and-last but not least-(d) their impact on the workload and stress level of nurses taking care of the devices.

Authors: Li N, Huang YH Abstract A patient with central venous occlusion at the junction of the superior vena cava and right atrium underwent endovascular revascularization. The leakage of contrast agents was detected during sharp recanalization that was then managed with covered stent deployment. The initial symptom of facial swelling disappeared and the vital signs were stable after treatment. Regrettably, the patient suffered from the clinical features of cardiac tamponade on the third day post-treatment, which was confirmed by computed tomography. Finally, a pericardial effusion was drained, leading to dramatic...

Conclusions: Operative laparoscopy under conscious sedation and local anesthesia appears to be a feasible technique in gynecologic surgery with no adverse patient outcomes. PMID: 32612345 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: recommendations emphasize isolation, proper rest, sleep, nutrition, hydration, medications, and in the more severe cases, oxygen support, monitoring of vital signs, emotional support, and multiprofessional and individualized care. Medications should be used with caution due to a lack of evidence. Future research is needed to analyze the impact of the infection at the beginning of pregnancy and the psychological aspects of pregnant women infected with the virus.

CONCLUSION: the estimates of the transmission rate, epidemiological peak, and number of deaths from coronavirus in Brazilian metropolises presented expressive and important numbers the Brazilian Ministry of Health needs to consider. The results confirm the rapid spread of the virus and its high mortality in the country. PMID: 32609282 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract OBJECTIVE: to analyze the relationship between per capita income and the cumulative incidence of COVID-19 in the neighborhoods of the city of Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil. METHOD: an ecological study using neighborhoods as units of analysis. The cumulative incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants and the median of potential confounding variables (sex, race, and age) were calculated. Multiple analysis included quantile regression, estimating the regression coefficients of the variable income for every five percentiles from the 10th to 90th percentiles to verify the relationship between income and incidenc...
CONCLUSION: most of the students have low levels of motivation to quit smoking and of physical dependence to nicotine. The level of motivation to quit smoking does not change after performing the intervention. PMID: 32609269 [PubMed - in process]
