Lumbar pain with intracranial origin.

Lumbar pain with intracranial origin. Acta Radiol. 2013 Feb 23; Authors: Perlepe V, Haenecour L, Duprez T, Omoumi P, Vande Berg BC, Lecouvet FE Abstract A 48-year-old woman presented low-back pain radiating to the lower right leg. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the lumbar spine revealed a L4-L5 subacute subdural hematoma (SDH). The patient had no general or local cause for this lumbar SDH, such as coagulation disorder, trauma, surgery, or lumbar puncture. She had a history of post-traumatic bilateral hemorrhagic contusions of the brain and intracranial SDH because of a fall occurring several months before the current problems. A downward migration of the cerebral SDH was found as only potential explanation of the lumbar SDH. The association between the intracranial and spinal hematomas is discussed.

Authors: Broadhead DY, Douglas HE, Bezjian Wallace LM, Wallace PJ, Tamura S, Morgan KC, Hemler DE Abstract Back pain and its associated complications are of increasing importance among military members. The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a common source of chronic low back pain (LBP) and functional disability. Many patients suffering from chronic LBP utilize opioids to help control their symptoms. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used extensively to treat pain emanating from many different musculoskeletal origins; however, its use in the SIJ has been studied only on a limited basis. The patient in this case report pr...

I am thinking about possibly doing a Psychiatry fellowship in the future and I heard some guy on Reddit mentioning "Interventional Pain Psychiatry", but I haven't been able to find any information about this fellowship online. All I found was something called "Interventional Psychiatry" where they do ECT and Ketamine infusions. What's the difference and how can I find out more information about these two? Does anyone know about these subspecialties?

Authors: Silveira C, Guedes R, Maia D, Curral R, Coelho R Abstract Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disabling neuroinflammatory disease. Psychiatric manifestations have a high prevalence in MS patients and may worsen the illness progression and the patients' quality of life (QoL). Depression is a highly prevalent condition in MS patients, associated with poorer adherence to treatment, decreased functional status and QoL, and increased suicide risk. Diagnosis and treatment of this disorder is challenging because of symptom overlap. Other prevalent psychiatric comorbidities are anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder...

I do an occasional deposition for some extra money and was recently asked to do a video taped one that will be played in the courtroom. Is this a common request? Any thoughts? Also, is the best way to prepare for these to just be familiar with the patient’s case? Should I be asking for any additional info from the patients attorney to prepare? Thanks!
