Researchers determine local acupuncture needling is important for treating peripheral neuropathy successfully

(Natural News) Researchers recently found a connection between local acupuncture points and the peripheral nerves involved in neuropathy and neuropathic pain. They concluded that stimulating those local points with needles ensures the successful treatment of peripheral neuropathy. Numerous studies show that acupuncture improves medical conditions like chronic lower back pain, migraine and tension headaches, and chemotherapy-related...

We present the case of a male diagnosed with a giant hepatic artery aneurysm, which first presented with pain and hemorrhage due to a partial rupture of the aneurysm. After discarding treatment with a stent or surgery due to the wide extension, we chose to embolize the hepatic artery with coils. However, the progress was unfavorable after the procedure, with the appearance of liver failure that was resolved by an urgent liver transplantation. Giant hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms are an infrequent entity and their management is a great challenge. The diagnosis is usually delayed due to non-specific clinical signs and the li...

Authors: Nagamura N, Higuchi H Abstract A middle-aged man presented with a fever, arthralgia, gastrointestinal symptoms, headache, and rash. After two weeks, the patient suddenly complained of severe abdominal pain, and computed tomography revealed aneurysms in the hepatic and splenic arteries, which increased in size progressively. Given the elevated levels of inflammatory markers and orchitis, polyarteritis nodosa (PN) was initially suspected. Catheter embolization for the ruptured hepatic aneurysm and splenectomy for the large splenic ones were performed, and the pathological finding was consistent with segmenta...

Ferrante, Kerry Horgan, Brent Blumenstein, Fred Saad, Jun Luo, Johann S. de BonoAbstractBackground: Detection of androgen receptor (AR) splice variant-7 (AR-V7) messenger RNA (mRNA) in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) is associated with a suboptimal response to abiraterone and enzalutamide in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Galeterone inhibits CYP17 and AR, and induces AR protein degradation. We hypothesized that galeterone would be clinically superior to enzalu...

A 41-year-old female patient from Afghanistan was referred to our hospital because of multiple cysts in both liver and kidneys accompanied by recurrent left flank pain and hematuria. Despite inconclusive family history, the patient was suspected of suffering from autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) on the basis of a medical history of adult-onset polycystic kidneys. Abdominal ultrasound revealed multicystic liver and kidneys with many typical cysts, but also an atypical, echogenic, and partially calcified lesion in liver segment VI as well as an atypical, septated, and partially calcified lesion in the spl...

Authors: Han L, Kong H, Liu F, Li X, Zhang S, Zhang X, Wu Y, Yang H, Zhang A, Liu K Abstract The aim of the study is to explore the protective effect of new gelatin (NG, Xin'ejiao in China) on hematopoietic injury caused by chemotherapy. Zebrafish, at 48 hours post fertilization (hpf), was treated with different chemotherapeutic drugs to establish the zebrafish hematopoietic damage model with reduced thrombocytes and erythrocytes. The protecting effects of NG on the thrombocytes and erythrocytes were observed, respectively, on zebrafish models. Then, the RT-PCR method was used to detect the change of mRNA level of ...

Westmoreland, Adela Casas-Melley, Pamela EllsworthAbstractRenal masses in the pediatric population carry a wide differential diagnosis; however, a careful history and physical can often elucidate the source. Infectious, benign, and malignant causes should all be considered in a patient presenting with a renal mass to mitigate risks of treatment options and safely ameliorate the patient's pathology. Pediatric renal masses are rare. Renal malignan...

ConclusionPortal and mesenteric venous thrombosis after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is an unusual complication but it has life threatening consequences if it is not diagnosed early and treated adequately. The patients with porto-mesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) usually present themselves with vague abdominal symptoms. As so, the physicians should have high index of suspicion to recommend computed tomography (CT) abdomen to confirm diagnosis and start adequate treatment.
