teo D Abstract Background: Altered balance is a common and debilitating symptom of fibromyalgia. Previous studies have investigated balance under single-task conditions that do not reflect real-life situations. The present study evaluated the impact of a simultaneous cell-phone conversation on balance performance in a case-control cohort from Spain. Methods: A cross-sectional case-control study was performed in 34 women recruited from local self-help organizations and university facilities (n = 18 fibromyalgia cases; n = 16 healthy, pain-free controls). Participants performed the 3...

Conclusion: The 2017 dengue outbreak occurred in a larger scale than in the previous years in terms of time, location, and number of patients. More elderly patients were infected by dengue in this outbreak, and this may contribute to the mortality rate. Clinical manifestations of dengue patients in Southern Vietnam are more typical than the northern, but the rate of severe dengue is not different. The mortality risk and underlying conditions associated with dengue-infected elderly patients are worthy of further investigations in the future. PMID: 31815129 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Spinal shrinkage equally affects men and women who perform the same work. There are no changes in spinal sagittal alignment throughout the workday in office workers. Office workers increase pain in the upper back significantly at the end of the day. PMID: 31813341 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Hemodynamically stable patients under AT with blunt hepatic or splenic injuries (grade ≤ III) and no signs of peritonitis, may be good candidates for NOM, despite their bleeding tendency. The type of AT does not seem to influence the final outcome. Reversal of AT should be stratified individually. KEY WORDS: Antithrombotic therapy, Hemodynamic stability, Non-operative management.

We describe a family ascertained through 3 newborn screening (NBS) positive infants found to be unaffected themselves but in whom the mothers (sisters) were affected. There were also two affected children born to an affected male and his heterozygous wife who were false negatives on NBS but had increased fractional excretion of free carnitine in the urine. Analysis on a Next Generation Sequencing panel specifically designed to fully cover newborn screening disease targets showed a homozygous change in the five probands (SLC22A5; NM_003060:c.-149G > A; p.?). The mutation segregates with the CUD within the family. It ...

CONCLUSIONS: Reported complication rates associated with femoral VCD implantation are low. However, in some cases VCD implantation may account for severe complications including limb losses. Therefore, an adequate patient selection is necessary to detect those cases at higher risk for complications. PMID: 31814376 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: November 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 6Author(s): Harish Seethapathy, Lama NoureddineCalciphylaxis is a rare disorder of poor prognosis that can lead to intense, painful lesions involving the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Although mostly described in dialysis patients, it can affect patients with normal kidney function. The diagnosis of calciphylaxis is complicated by the absence of a gold standard marker of disease such as a clear histopathological finding. Late diagnosis and advanced lesions can significantly shorten life expectancy. Calciphylaxis wounds can have a ma...

hi all, I have a patient with a history of an anterior cervical fusion present with a 2 month history of cervical radic that hasn't responded to NSAID, PT, oral steroids, or even percocet. She wants to have an epidural done but has this history of VWF disease. I don't have any records about and she isn't entirely clear about this diagnosis. She just told me "they told me I bled a lot after a prior surgery and diagnosed me with VWF disease". She did tell me she received DDAVP prior to her... cervical esi and VWF disease

We present a case of GCA in a patient who presented with jaw claudication and occlusal pain. A 78-year-old man visited our department with left-sided facial pain associated with mastication. He also reported spontaneous left-sided facial pain and diminished vision. Based on his age, his new-onset left-sided headache, and a high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, he was diagnosed with GCA with immediate initiation of prednisolone (PSL) therapy. His fever subsided the following day. A temporal artery biopsy (TAB) was performed 7 days after hospitalization and showed a false-negative result. His left-sided facial pain and headac...
