Magnesium for treating sickle cell disease.

CONCLUSIONS: Moderate to low quality evidence showed neither intravenous magnesium and oral magnesium therapy has an effect on reducing painful crisis, length of hospital stay and changing quality of life in treating sickle cell disease. Therefore, no definitive conclusions can be made regarding its clinical benefit. Further randomized controlled studies, perhaps multicentre, are necessary to establish whether intravenous and oral magnesium therapies have any effect on improving the health of people with sickle cell disease.

Cannabinoids may be useful in the management of rheumatic disorders for two broad reasons: their anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activity, and their ...

The β-eutectic-phase contributions to grain refinement, texture tailoring, and plastic behavior were discussed. Microstructure characterization was presented along with a strengthening mechanism analysis. The β-e...

In the process of electrodepositing aluminum, the overpotential greatly affects the morphology and size of the aluminum coating. The relationship between overpotential and the morphologies of aluminum grains was consistent with the classical nucleation theory, showing that the aluminum nuclei size was proportional to the inverse of o...

CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative diagnosis of HE is challenging due to variable radiologic features and clinical symptomatology. Nonetheless, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a liver mass especially in premenopausal women with a history of endometriosis. The type of resection of the endometriotic lesion is based on the extent and the location of the disease and presented with favourable outcomes concerning morbidity, symptom relief and recurrence.

Our studies suggest that this pain input may be detrimental to long-term recovery. In a rodent model, we have shown that engaging pain (nociceptive) fibers caudal to a lower thoracic contusion SCI impairs recovery of locomotor function and increases tissue loss (secondary injury) and hemorrhage at t...

va-Coria PM Abstract Post-operative abdominal adhesions (PAA) are a condition that occurs in more than 90% of patients undergoing abdomen surgery; they can cause chronic abdominal pain, female infertility and repeated bowel obstruction, requiring repetitive surgical interventions causing morbidity and mortality, as well as high costs. The formation of the PAA is due to an imbalance between the fibrinogenesis and fibrinolysis in favor of the first, associated with tissue hypoxia secondary to aggression of the peritoneum, also due to the own inflammatory response and the increase in the population of adhesion fibrob...

ConeAbstractKratom use appears to be increasing across the United States, increasing attention to deaths in which kratom use was detected. Most such deaths have been ascribed to fentanyl, heroin, benzodiazepines, prescription opioids, cocaine and other causes (e.g., homicide, suicide and various preexisting diseases). Because kratom has certain opioid-like effects (e.g., pain relief), and is used by some people as a substitute for opioids ...

I'm only in my first year of residency and just curious to hear from more experienced individuals. I had classmates during D3 and D4 complain about wrist/neck and back pain but I never really had that. I try my best to practice good ergonomics and do full body exercises at the gym 3-4 days a week since college. People constantly tell me it'll happen to me eventually, but these people are often twisting their bodies at the operatory. I have 5.5x loupes and can't really even do some of...
