[Interest of transcranial stimulation in pelvic and perineal disorders]. Prog Urol. 2019 Apr 26;: Authors: Vacher P, Charlanes A, Chesnel C, Pagès A, Malot C, Le Breton F, Amarenco G, Manceau P Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article was to describe the diagnostic and therapeutic value of transcranial stimulation in pelvic and perineal disorders. METHODS: A literature review (Medline database and Google scholar) with no time limit was performed using keywords: "transcranial direct stimulation", "transcranial magnetic stimulation", "neurogenic bladder", "urinary incontinence", "Parkinson disease", "multiple sclerosis", "stroke", "muscle spasticity", "pelvic pain", "visceral pain". RESULTS: Twelve articles have been selected. Transcranial magnetic or electrical stimulation is a noninvasive neuromodulation technique widely used to establish brain maps to highlight causal relationships between brain and function. Regarding pelvic-perineal disorders, repeated transcranial stimulation has shown significant effects for the treatment of overactive bladder in Parkinson's disease (P

(Chalmers University of Technology) In sufferers of Parkinson's disease, clumps ofα-synuclein (alpha-synuclein), sometimes known as the 'Parkinson's protein', are found in the brain. These destroy cell membranes, eventually resulting in cell death. Now, a new method developed at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, reveals how the composition of cell membranes seems to be a decisive factor for how small quantities ofα-synuclein cause damage.
Authors: Matsushita S, Wong B, Kanumalla R, Goldstein L Abstract Dysmenorrhea, or painful menstruation, is a common cause of acute pelvic pain that affects approximately two-thirds of women who are postmenarchal in the United States. Dysmenorrhea pain is frequently severe enough to disrupt daily activities and often accompanied by other symptoms, such as diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, headache, and dizziness. Primary dysmenorrhea is likely due to an excess of prostaglandins and is traditionally treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and hormonal therapy. Secondary dysmenorrhea can have multiple origins and ...
Authors: Chahin M, Kogler W, Stack A, Lyons B Abstract Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death among US men. Metastasis typically occurs in the bone, lymph nodes, liver, and thorax. This case highlights a patient who was suspected of having prostate cancer several years before presenting to the emergency department with back pain and an umbilical hernia of increasing size. Gross examination revealed fixed masses on the abdominal wall that appeared malignant on computed tomographic imaging. The umbilical mass was a Sister Mary Joseph nodule (SMJN), which is sometimes found in patients with ad...
