Cultivating a humble and modest professional demeanor

Should PainSpecialists strive to cultivate a humble and modest professional demeanor like pediatricians or family practice docs or should we be more “in your face” specialty like plastics, deem, or spine surgery? Imagine if no one Pain dressed up in fancy suits at conference ms and drove fast, expensive cars and instead just cane “as you are” in comfortable Dad jeans and JCPenny shirts and ties? Would purposely presenting ourselves this improve the specialty’s reputation and would... Cultivating a humble and modest professional demeanor

In this study, we found Tα1 can attenuate the complete Freund’s adjuvant (CFA)-induced mechanical allodynia and heat hyperalgesia. Meanwhile, it reduced the upregulation of CFA-induced inflammatory mediators (interferon (IFN)-γ, tumor necrosis factor-α and brain-derived neurotrophic factor). In addition, we found the Wnt3a/β-catenin pathway was activated in spinal cord after the injection of CFA, paralleling with pain hypersensitivity. However, Tα1 reversed this status. In summary, Tα1 could attenuate inflammatory pain by modulating the Wnt3a/β-catenin pathway. It might be rela...

This study is an attempt to investigate the effects of intrathecal administration of Melissa officinalis on the pain induced by heat and formalin.In this experimental study, 70 male Wistar rats with an average weight of 270–320 g were randomly divided into five groups: control; sham that received 25 μl of saline through the spinal catheter; and three experimental groups that received 5, 10 or 20 mg/kg M. officinalis via the spinal catheter respectively. Five days after catheterization of the spinal cord from the lumbar region under anesthesia, the effects of Intrathecal administration of M...

By YOLONDA Y. WILSON, PhD Last week a nurse posted a video of herself on Twitter mocking patients with the caption “We know when y’all are faking” followed by laughing emojis. Twitter responded with the hashtag #patientsarenotfaking, created by Imani Barbarin, and a slew of testimonials of negligent medical care. While the nurse’s video was not explicitly racialized, plenty in the black community felt a particular sting: there is clear evidence that this attitude contributes to the problem of black patients receiving substandard care, and that negative behavioral traits&n...

Abstract Pain is a defense system that responds rapidly to harmful internal and external stimuli through the somatosensory neuronal pathway. However, damage to the nervous system through cancer, diabetes, infection, autoimmune disease, chemotherapy or trauma often leads to neuropathic pain, a debilitating chronic pain condition. Neuropathic pain is not simply a temporal continuum of acute nociceptive signals from the periphery, but rather due to pathologically altered functions in the nervous system, which shift the net neuronal excitatory balance toward excitation. Although alterations were long thought to be a r...

Conclusion: This preliminary evidence suggests that a single intradiskal injection of AMUC particulate is safe and may provide symptomatic pain relief in some patients with discogenic pain. PMID: 31790127 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Adult patients receiving OMT are being treated primarily for musculoskeletal pain conditions, are not representative of the population of the county where the clinic was located, and have worse health-related quality of life than that of the general population. Information about the characteristics of patients who use OMT is important for defining osteopathic distinctiveness and identifying potential areas for increasing the use of OMT. (ClinicalTrials.gov number NCT02395965). PMID: 31790126 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, the histopathological presence of Homer-Wright rosettes and immunohistochemical markers such as CD99, FLI-1 and CK are valuable factors for the diagnosis of ES, although cytogenetic analysis is considered the gold standard. Complete surgery is the most effective treatment option for ES treatment. Adjuvant radiotherapy and combination chemotherapy can also improve the survival rate of patients postoperatively.

Conclusions: Simple lumbar disc operations in the otherwise healthy patients can be safely performed under either spinal or general anesthesia. Both anesthetic methods led to comparable outcomes with minimal complications. PMID: 31788165 [PubMed - in process]
