PicoloAbstractMultiple sclerosis (MS) is a Central Nervous System inflammatory demyelinating disease that has as primary symptoms losses of sensory and motor functions, including chronic pain. To date, however, few studies have investigated the mechanisms of chronic pain in animal models of MS since locomotor impairments render difficult its evaluation. It was previously demonstrated that in the MOG35-55-induced EAE, an animal mod...

We report a young 22-year-old female with unknown etiology of a pseudoaneurysm, who was previously managed as a psychiatric case and for musculoskeletal pain. On subsequent investigation and confirmation with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, aneurysmectomy was done. This is a rare case in a young 22-year-old woman with a ventricular pseudoaneurysm of unknown etiology. Considering the high risk for rupture of a ventricular pseudoaneurysm, surgical resection was mandatory with no complications intra- and postprocedure.

Muldoon, Ian ApplebyAbstractThe volume and range of procedures undertaken by interventional neuroradiologists continues to expand. They are now treating many conditions previously considered untreatable or only amenable to open surgical techniques. To facilitate the close cooperation required between radiologists and anaesthetists necessary for the successful outcome of these complex and lengthy procedures, it is important for the anaesthetist to have an appreciation of the pathophysiology, potential multi...

Effectiveness of interventions depends on appropriate assessment, complicated by compromised self-report and health and behaviour difficulties. Studying settling and waking in these syndromes could inform assessment.AimsTo describe settling and waking behaviours in children at high-risk of sleep and health problems, using direct observation.Methods and proce...
