Diagnostic Efficacy of 18F-FDG PET/MRI in Peripheral Nerve Injury Models.

Diagnostic Efficacy of 18F-FDG PET/MRI in Peripheral Nerve Injury Models. Neurochem Res. 2019 Aug 03;: Authors: Nam JW, Lee MJ, Kim HJ Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of 18F-FDG PET/MRI in two different peripheral neuropathic pain models using the injured rat sciatic nerves. Twelve rats, with operation on left sciatic nerves, were evenly divided into three groups: sham surgery (control group), crushing injury and chronic constriction injury (CCI) (experimental groups). The nerve damage was assessed at 3 weeks postoperatively using following methods: paw withdrawal threshold values (RevWT), maximum standardized uptake values on PET/MRI images (SUVR), and counting the number of myelinated axons in proximal and distal sites of nerve injury (MAxR). The results were quantified and statistically analyzed. Compared to the control group, the crushing injury demonstrated significant differences in RevWT (p

CONCLUSIONS: Although MRI is crucial for evaluating lumbar spinal stenosis, it cannot replace but is rather complementary to a good patient history and clinical examination or the results of local diagnostic injections. PMID: 31743983 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

QuinnAbstractXanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is an uncommon chronic destructive granulomatous inflammation of the kidney that can sometimes mimic other renal pathologies like tumours or infections. For this reason, it is also called “the great imitator”.This is the case of a 7-year old girl that presented to the hospital with right hip pain and a suspicious right sided abdominal lesion, thought initially to be a Wilms’ tumour and then an appe...

Publication date: Available online 4 November 2019Source: Journal of Visceral SurgeryAuthor(s): A. Faul, A. Laforest, D. FuksSummaryAppendix intussusception is rare, can be responsible of chronic unexplained abdominal pain and is mostly associated with inflammatory changes or endometriosis. A 23-year-old woman with Crohn's disease was diagnosed invaginated appendix by CT-scan and colonoscopy after several acute atypical abdominal pain episodes. These episodes were suspected to be independent of the Crohn's disease and to be attributed to the intussusception itself. A resection combining ligation of the base by colonoscopy ...

If there is any field of science that understands the doctrine of unintended consequences, it’s medicine. We rely on antibiotics to wipe out infections, and in the process breed a class of superbugs resistant to the drugs. We develop powerful medications that can control chronic pain, and in the U.S., have a nationwide addiction crisis to show for that breakthrough. Now, it appears, we can add asthma control to the list pharmaceutical blowbacks we didn’t see coming.
