Authors: Shah SP, Twilla JD, Kemp L, Phelps GL, Reaves A Abstract Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a chronic condition characterized by multiple vaso-occlusive complications, including acute pain crisis. The mainstay of treatment for patients presenting with vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC) is pain control and adequate hydration. Currently, there are no studies to determine an optimal pain control regimen in adult SCD patients. The main objective of this study is to evaluate whether outcomes differ in patients with VOC based on pain management treatment modality. A retrospective review of admissions with a primary diagnosis...

This report describes endovascular venous arterialization with the use of devices commonly available in interventional laboratories. A 61-year-old woman undergoing long-term dialysis with no other major risks for chronic limb ischemia presented with rest pain and nonhealing wounds on her right foot (Rutherford category 6) for a duration of 6 months. Poor vascularization to the foot was seen on selective angiography (Figs 1, 2). Recanalization of the anterior tibial artery was attempted twice but was unsuccessful.

Conclusions The definitions of vulvodynia descriptors were determined by a multistaged process of discussion among health care providers with expertise in the pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of vulvodynia. The definitions were approved by the ISSVD, ISSWSH, and IPPS. It is recommended that these definitions of vulvodynia descriptors as well as the 2015 consensus terminology be used for the classification of vulvodynia.

Objectives We surveyed women from a primary care population to assess the prevalence of unreported vulvovaginal symptoms. Materials and Methods A random sample of women aged 18 to 84 years without a diagnosis of vulvovaginitis or vulvodynia in the past year were surveyed anonymously about prevalence and severity of vulvar and vaginal symptoms of itching, burning, irritation, vaginal discharge, vaginal dryness, and vulvovaginal pain in the past month. Women reporting at least 1 moderate-severe symptom were considered symptomatic. Demographic and clinical characteristics were compared between women with and without symp...

Conclusions Mindfulness-based group cognitive behavior and education support group therapy are effective in reducing pain and distress. However, women in the M-gCBT program showed greater improvement in certain secondary outcomes, indicating that M-gCBT may offer some advantages in reducing distress associated with provoked localized vulvodynia.

ConclusionsAlthough VB possesses significant anti-tumor effect against various cancer cell lines, the development of new drugs still remains to be a challenge due to its pharmacodynamic effects in vivo, druggability and toxicology. The main problem lies in its side effects in vivo, poor bioavailability, fast metabolism, cardiotoxicity and neurovirulence. Besides, studies on its metabolism and toxicology in vitro and in vivo, as well as clinical trials should be further conducted for the new drug development and the establishment of optimal dosage of consumption of its administration.Graphical abstract

AbstractAlthough Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) knowledge is increasing, the exact pathophysiology remains unclear. TCM represents 1% –2% of all troponin positive acute coronary syndromes, affects predominantly postmenopausal women, and is commonly preceded by exposure to severe physical or emotional stress. Transient wall motion abnormalities mimicking ST-elevation myocardial infarction is expected as well as increase of tropon in levels and echocardiography alterations. This case report is about a patient that as far as we know is the first case that shows the use of myocardial perfusion imaging in the acute phase ...

AbstractObjectivesThe purpose of this paper is to present research findings on the effects of mindfulness meditation training on four weekly self-report measures among three groups: those receiving training delivered in-person (M-IP) or in a virtual world (M-VW), and a waitlist control group (WLC).MethodsParticipants (n = 191) were US military active duty service members and veterans. The M-IP and M-VW groups reported their stress, energy, pain, and sleepiness before/after each mindfulness training class, while the control group answered the same questions once a week for the 8-week duration of training.Resul...

This report aims to review recent evidence regarding the utilization of transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block in minimally invasive urologic surgery.Recent FindingsTAP block has been shown to improve early and late pain at rest, and to reduce opioid consumption after minimally invasive surgery. These benefits have indirectly reduced the incidence of postoperative delirium, pneumonia, urinary retention, and falls. Compared to epidural analgesia, TAP block provides similar pain control, has a lower incidence of hypotension, and is associated with a shorter length of stay.SummaryFew studies focus specifically on the outcome...
