Neurological abnormalities in 97 dogs with detectable pituitary masses.

CONCLUSION: Neurological signs recorded in DPM-affected dogs include not only the typical forebrain signs but also gait disturbances and hyperesthesia. Neurological signs are positively associated with increased P:B ratio and MRI signs of brain compression. PMID: 31112462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The data suggest that there is not a meaningful association between crouch gait and knee pain. Having patella alta was associated with pain. Further studies that use validated pain questionnaires are needed to understand the multifactorial etiology of knee pain within ambulatory individuals with CP. Level of Evidence: Level III—case-control study.

Conclusions: When considering a child with an irritable knee, a heterogeneity of potential underlying pathologies and combinations of pathologies are possible. Importantly, the age of the patient and CRP can guide a clinician when considering further workup. Older patients with a higher admission CRP value warrant an immediate magnetic resonance imaging, as they are likely to have osteomyelitis, which was associated with worse outcomes when compared with patients with isolated septic arthritis. Level of Evidence: Level III—retrospective research study.

Conclusions: This multicenter review provides the largest known demographic and outcomes data on TPHS. TPHS have excellent outcomes in the vast majority of patients when treated surgically. Nonaccidental trauma accounted for 27% of these injuries so it needs to remain high on the differential diagnosis. Level of Evidence: Level III—retrospective cohort study.

Conclusions: Missed PLC injuries are a significant source of morbidity and poor clinical outcomes in the management of concomitant ACL injuries in adults. This study demonstrates the prevalence of PLC injuries in the setting of concomitant ACL injuries in the unique skeletally immature patient population. Incomplete PLC injuries are relatively common. Complete PLC injuries are relatively uncommon. PLC injury was more common in older patients. No other concomitant injury predicted the likelihood of PLC injury. Further research is needed regarding the risk of ACL reconstruction failure from associated PLC injury and the in...

Conclusions: This study demonstrated a rapid improvement of many symptoms in the subacute post-operative period in pituitary tumor patients. Disturbed sleep was identified as the only symptom to worsen post-operatively, encouraging potential prospective interventions to improve sleep, and subsequently improve the QOL in pituitary tumor patients following surgical intervention. Introduction Pituitary tumors are relatively rare primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adults (1) but make up 10% of all neurosurgical interventions in the United States (2). They are often an incidental finding in autopsies and brain...

Abstract Ivabradine (IVA), a heart-rate reducing agent, is recognized as an inhibitor of hyperpolarization-activated cation current (Ih) and also reported to ameliorate inflammatory or neuropathic pain. However, to what extent this agent can perturb another types of membrane ion currents in neurons or endocrine cells remains to be largely unknown. Therefore, the Ih or other types of ionic currents in pituitary tumor (GH3) cells and in hippocampal mHippoE-14 neurons was studied with or without the presence of IVA or other related compounds. The IVA addition caused a time- and concentration-dependent reduction in th...

AbstractThis systematic review summarizes the existing data on headache and pregnancy with a scope on clinical headache phenotypes, treatment of headaches in pregnancy and effects of headache medications on the child during pregnancy and breastfeeding, headache related complications, and diagnostics of headache in pregnancy. Headache during pregnancy can be both primary and secondary, and in the last case can be a symptom of a life-threatening condition. The most common secondary headaches are stroke, cerebral venous thrombosis, subarachnoid hemorrhage, pituitary tumor, choriocarcinoma, eclampsia, preeclampsia, idiopathic ...

I thought I had it all figured out. I even had a book title picked out: Whole-ish — On Healing Myself Naturally from Depression and My Messy Path to Well. And I had outlined some of the chapters: Why restoring your gut health and generating good intestinal bacteria will improve mood The science behind optimal nutrition and how certain foods reduce inflammation of the brain, while others (sugar) send a message of distress to your immune system, affecting your entire nervous system How green smoothies help eliminate disease states The therapeutic faculties of yoga and how it primes our parasympathetic system Mindfulne...

I keep going back to this quote by Vivian Greene when it comes to learning how to live with my chronic illness: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” In fact, every morning I drink out of a mug with that quote on it to remind myself of Vivian’s wisdom: IT’S NOT ABOUT GETTING TO THE OTHER SIDE. With chronic illness, the important exercise is to get out the rain boots and start stomping in the puddles — to not let the downpour stop you from living. Going into the second decade of living with a host of conditions &mdash...
