Authors: Fournier E Abstract Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is too common a condition not to daily interact with the practitioner, if only because of its entanglement to other pathologies, causal or chance association. The typical symptomatology, with hand paresthesia and morning pain upon waking, is related to a median nerve injury in the confined space of the carpal tunnel, more often by local inflammation and tenosynovitis of the finger flexors (repetitive activity of the hands). SCC may be secondary to situations (pregnancy) or conditions (edema, hypothyroidism…), which exaggerate the ordinary pathophysiol...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: European Journal of Obstetrics &Gynecology and Reproductive BiologyAuthor(s): Khadija Saidi, Shantanu Sharma, Bodil OhlssonAbstractEndometriosis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are common conditions among young women of reproductive age. The etiologies to the diseases are uncertain, but multifactorial pathophysiology has been proposed for each of them. Many studies have examined the two conditions separately, but the literature on the associations between endometriosis and IBS is sparse. However, there is an increasing amount of research on how endometriosis ...

ConclusionsDifferences on anxiety tests indicate a possible failure of behavioral inhibition in the treatment group leading to riskier behavior. Binge drinking also impairs motor coordination and object memory, which involve the cerebellar and hippocampal brain regions, respectively. These experiments indicate the potential dangers of binge drinking while the brain is still developing and indicate the need for future studies in this area.

AyoubAbstractThe aim of this study was to compare the impact that the orthodontics-first approach and the surgery-first approach have on quality of life, anxiety, and depression in patients treated for dentofacial deformities. Data were collected on 32 patients (aged 17–47 years) who were all treated at a single multidisciplinary orthognathic clinic. They completed a 22-item Orthognathic Quality of Life Questionnaire (OQLQ), a seven-item Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7...

ConclusionsPillar suture combined with tonsillectomy may reduce postoperative bleeding incidence despite increasing pillar edema in pediatric tonsillectomy. Postoperative pain-relief, palatal hematoma, palatal discomfort sensation, site infection, and velopharyngeal insufficiency were not significantly altered compared to tonsillectomy alone. However, further studies are needed to corroborate the results of this study.ResumoIntroduçãoDiversas técnicas cirúrgicas têm sido utilizadas na tonsilectomia no intuito de reduzir complicações.ObjetivosAvaliar os efeitos da sutura dos p...

In fish, the physiological role of this peptide remains to be elucidated. This research aimed to determine the possible role of GDF-15 on food intake in goldfish (Carassius auratus). To achieve our objectives, we first obtained a 595 bp gdf-15 cDNA sequence...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Yun-Feng LiAbstractMajor depressive disorder has become a global public health problem of serious concern. Most of the clinical antidepressants are developed under the classic “monoamine hypothesis (strategy)”. These drugs generally have such deficiencies including slow onset and limited efficiency, cognitive impairment and suicidal tendency. Therefore, it is the direction to break through the classic monoamine strategy framework for developing antidepressants that have fast-acting, lower side effects, and cogniti...
