Acute chest pain and esophageal mucosal injury following an extreme yoga position Case report.

Acute chest pain and esophageal mucosal injury following an extreme yoga position Case report. Ann Ital Chir. 2019 Sep 30;8: Authors: Pessia B, Ciarrocchi A, Marinelli S, Pietroletti R Abstract A young lady complained of the sudden onset of intense chest pain, in consequence of an extreme hyperextension of the back in a yoga position. At endoscopy a large lesion of the esophageal epithelium was detected, involving the middle third of the anterior wall of the esophagus. Other symptoms reported by the patient were dysphagia and odynophagia, depicting the typical features of intramural hematoma, also known as intramural dissection or intramural perforation of the oesophagus. The patient was managed conservatively and symptoms disappeared within a week. A barium swallow at six months reported normal findings. Different types of accidents occurring during yoga practice are reported in the literature, mainly involving musculoskeletal or nervous systems. Visceral lesions are exceptional and no similar cases have been reported in the literature. KEYWORDS: Acute chest pain, Esophageal lesion, Intramural hematoma, Management of esophageal lesion. PMID: 31799944 [PubMed - in process]

This article reviews the acute neural transmission of pain, pruritus, and nausea symptoms, which can begin in the periphery and/or viscera. The subsequent multiple pathways in the central nervous system that become involved in the processing of these symptoms are also discussed. The authors describe human brain imaging studies that have revealed consistent cortical and subcortical networks  activated by these symptoms, including sensory, limbic, and associative regions. In particular, the authors discuss information revealed by the studies regarding the primary somatosensory cortex, secondary somatosensory cortex, ant...

ConclusionWhile the feared intra-abdominal complications of cholecystectomy often come to mind when assessing patients presenting with abdominal pain after surgery, non-specific abdominal pain is consistently shown to be several times more likely. A combination of patient factors and pain control techniques account for this pain. Effective multimodal pain management approach and community primary health care support in the early post-operative period could reduce readmission, save cost and improve patient experience.

Roughly 1.4 million Americans suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which refers to conditions that cause inflammation of the intestinal tract. Children with IBD may suffer from abdominal pain, cramping, blood in the stools and diarrhea. Early signs may include fever, fatigue and weight loss. IBD presents in two main forms: ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. While both are lifelong conditions, they can often be treated effectively with regular medication and diet management, surgical care and psychological support. The IBD Experience Journal, created by the Boston Children’s Hospital Inf...

Test your medicine knowledge with the MKSAP challenge, in partnership with the American College of Physicians. A 50-year-old man is evaluated in follow-up after hospitalization 6 months ago for a large bleeding gastric ulcer. Tests performed for Helicobacter pylori infection at that time were negative. However, for the 3 months before hospitalization he had been taking ibuprofen for chronic back pain. He was discharged from the hospital on omeprazole, and his ibuprofen was discontinued. Owing to the large size of the ulcer and increased suspicion for underlying malignancy, follow-up upper endoscopy was perfo...
