The Impact of Unpredictability on Dyspnea Perception, Anxiety and Interoceptive Error Processing

The Impact of Unpredictability on Dyspnea Perception, Anxiety and Interoceptive Error Processing Yafei Tan1,2, Omer Van den Bergh2, Jiang Qiu1* and Andreas von Leupoldt2* 1Faculty of Psychology, Southwest University, Chongqing, China 2Health Psychology, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Dyspnea is a prevalent interoceptive sensation and the aversive cardinal symptom in many cardiorespiratory diseases as well as in mental disorders. Especially the unpredictability of the occurrence of dyspnea episodes has been suggested to be highly anxiety provoking for affected patients. Moreover, previous studies demonstrated that unpredictable exteroceptive stimuli increased self-reports and electrophysiological responses of anxiety such as the startle probe N100 as well as amplified the processing of errors as reflected by greater error-related negativity (ERN). However, studies directly examining the role of unpredictability on dyspnea perception, anxiety, and error processing are widely absent. Using high-density electroencephalography, the present study investigated whether unpredictable compared to predictable dyspnea would increase the perception of dyspnea, anxiety and interoceptive error processing. Thirty-two healthy participants performed a respiratory forced choice reaction time task to elicit an interoceptive ERN during two conditions: an unpredictable and a predictable resistive load-induced dyspnea condition. Predictability was manipulated by pairing (predictable condition...

ConclusionFDG-PET/CT may steer the diagnosis (particularly thanks to a relatively high PPV and value of semiquantitative measurements), but cannot always classify vertebral bone lesions as malignant or benign with sufficient certainty. In these cases, biopsy and/or follow-up remain necessary to establish a final diagnosis.

AbstractThe biceps brachii myotendinous unit, particularly the long head of the biceps tendon and its labral attachment, is a common cause of shoulder and arm pain. Its complex anatomy and normal variations can present a challenge when interpreting MR images. The purpose of this manuscript is to review the proximal biceps anatomy, variants, pathology, and post-operative appearance as seen on MRI. Recent data regarding the accuracy of clinical examination and MRI will be summarized.

ConclusionWe report statistically significant differences in the T1 ρ value in the superficial and middle zones of the lateral patella in patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome who had no abnormalities seen on conventional MRI sequences, suggesting an alteration the macromolecular structure of the cartilage in this population.

AbstractObjectiveTo investigate the associations of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) with changes in knee cartilage composition and joint structure over 48  months, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI).Materials and methodsA total of 1126 participants with right knee Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) score 0 –2 at baseline, no history of rheumatoid arthritis, blood pressure measurements at baseline, and cartilage T2 measurements at baseline and 48 months were selected from the OAI. Cartilage composition was assessed using MRI T2 measuremen...

We report a case of a 55-year-old patient being resuscitated emergently with proximal humeral intraosseous infusion for cardiac and respiratory arrest secondary to status epilepticus. After successful resuscitation and removal of the intraosseous cannula, the patient noted new-onset shoulder pain. The patient was ultimately diagnosed with an iatrogenic fracture of the anatomic neck of the humerus through the intraosseous needle tract when the appropriate history was obtained in conjunction with cross-sectional imaging. As the use of intraosseous access expands, such fractures may well be seen more frequently. Intraosseous ...

AbstractA 37-year-old man presented with a 2-year history of left hip pain. Pretherapeutic imaging demonstrated a 4  cm osteoblastoma located in the intertrochanteric region of the proximal femur, surrounded by extensive bone marrow edema. After multidisciplinary meeting, percutaneous cryoablation was decided and performed under computed tomography guidance using three cryoprobes to match the exact size and shap e of the tumor, resulting in complete resolution of symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging follow-up demonstrated resolution of the bone marrow edema pattern and ingrowth of fat at the periphery of the ablation ...

Authors: Aparisi Á, Uribarri A Abstract Takotsubo syndrome is an acute cardiomyopathy that mimics acute coronary syndrome and is characterized by acute heart failure with reversible ventricular motion abnormalities, in the absence of justifying coronary artery disease. This document offers an exhaustive review of various proposed hypotheses that attempt to explain the pathophysiology of this disease and provides an updated review of the different classifications that have emerged in recent years. In addition, we describe the main clinical characteristics of these patients, the diagnostic tests that must be p...
