Hormones and Mobility.

[Hormones and Mobility]. Praxis (Bern 1994). 2019 Jul;108(9):582-588 Authors: Henzen C Abstract Hormones and Mobility Abstract. Endocrine disorders affect mobility in many and sometimes characteristic ways such as Cushing's syndrome or hyperparathyroidism, which have direct, hormone-mediated effects on skeletal and muscular tissues. On the other hand, the endocrine system plays an important role in the development of (osteo)sarcopenia, the meaning of which is increasingly recognized in the prognosis of various diseases. Conversely, lack of physical activity is crucial in the development of metabolic diseases, which are associated with serious individual and socio-economic consequences.

This article describes the current diagnostic imaging approaches used in reptile medicine for evaluation of urinary tract disease. The use of radiographs, ultrasonography, computed tomography, MRI, and endoscopy is discussed and compared for the evaluation of urinary tract disease in reptiles.

A 48-year-old kidney transplant recipient was admitted to our hospital with nausea, polyuria, diffuse paresthesia, and muscle weakness of all extremities. His past medical history was remarkable for renal transplantation with impaired graft function (baseline glomerular filtration rate approximately 20 ml/min per 1.73 m2) and parathyroidectomy due to an uncontrolled hyperparathyroidism. An electrocardiogram showed pronounced concave ST-segment elevations in leads II, III, and aVF suspicious of an acute ST elevation myocardial infarction as well as ascending elevations deriving from a deep S wave especially in leads V1 &nda...

A 46-year-old woman with a history of sickle cell disease and associated predialysis stage V chronic kidney disease (CKD) with secondary hyperparathyroidism presented with fever, severe extremity pain, and perioral numbness. On examination, she had a prominent Chvostek ’s sign, carpopedal spasm, hyperactive tendon reflexes, and a nontender mass in the left lobe of her thyroid gland. She was not on bisphosphonates or calcimimetics and had not been taking her prescribed calcitriol for 2 weeks.

Authors: Ito J, Fujii H, Kono K, Goto S, Nishi S Abstract We encountered a pregnant hemodialysis patient with severe hyperparathyroidism (HPT). Although her disease was considered to be refractory to medical treatment, the serum intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) level remarkably improved without manifestation of hypercalcemia through only strict serum phosphorus control, mainly via intensification of dialysis. The very strong correlation between the serum phosphorus level and serum intact PTH level suggested the possibility of secondary HPT. She ultimately gave birth to a healthy baby. The clinical course of the pat...

Conclusions: Robotic-assisted parathyroidectomy through lateral cervical approach is a safe and feasible procedure in patients with posteriorly localized parathyroid adenomas. Preoperative imaging techniques are crucial to detect the exact location. PMID: 31738661 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Pituicytoma is an uncommon noninvasive tumor of the sellar and suprasellar regions. In this case report, we described a patient with Cushing's disease to whom MRI displayed only an infundibular well-circumscribed lesion, but not any pituitary adenoma. Despite the absence of any sellar lesion, awareness of other undetected possible lesion and exploring hypophysis during the transsphenoidal surgery is mandatory for the correct diagnosis.

Authors: Dibra A, Bushati T, Berdica L, Masati B, Maranaku S Abstract The primary hyperparathyroidism is a pathological condition that needs frequent surgical treatment. Usually it is encountered due to a parathyroid adenoma, but in rare cases it is configured as structured parathyroid tissue in a rich environment with a bulk of adipose cells. This pathology initially described as Hamartoma of the parathyroid gland and then as parathyroid adenolipoma is rarely encountered and it requires special care from medical staff because of the difficulty in its early diagnosis and also its treatment. We are presenting a case...

CONCLUSIONS: This model demonstrated favorable short- and long-term clinical benefits associated with the use of ERC in patients with CKD Stage 3 and 4 with SHPT and VDI, suggesting ERC may be cost-effective from the Medicare perspective compared to paricalcitol.

icz D Abstract Changes in sensitivity to insulin occur in the course of a number of endocrine disorders. Most of the hormones through their antagonistic action to insulin lead to increased hepatic glucose output and its decreased utilisation in peripheral tissues. Carbohydrate disorders observed in endocrine diseases result from the phenomenon of insulin resistance, and in some cases also a reduction in insulin secretion is present. Abnormalities of glucose metabolism are observed in acromegaly, but also in growth hormone deficiency, hypercortisolism in the course of Cushing's syndrome, hyper- or hypothyroidism, p...
