A systematic review of upper extremity neuropathy following total hip arthroplasty.

CONCLUSIONS: Upper extremity neuropathy following THA is a rare complication that presents with variations of sensory and motor deficits. A thorough attention to proper positioning of the upper extremity is necessary to mitigate this risk. PMID: 31971022 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Discussion Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a problem of the neuromuscular junction which causes muscle weakness. It can occur in all ages and have a range of symptoms from mild localized disease to mortality-threatening respiratory failure. MG occurs in 1.7-30 cases/million, with a prevalence of 77.7 cases/million. Pediatric patients comprise 10-15% of all patients with MG. In various Asian populations, the juvenile MG can be up to 50% of all of the MG cases. Fluctuations in muscle weakness is a hallmark of the disease. As a reminder, “[i]n normal synaptic transmission in the neuromuscular junction, the axon is depolarize...

ConclusionThis is an initial report demonstrating the potential of rTMS for the treatment of CIPN. We suggest rTMS could be potentially beneficial and effective as a treatment for pain and dysesthesia in patients with CIPN.

AbstractA major dose ‐limiting side effect of docetaxel chemotherapy is peripheral neuropathy. Patients’ symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensations, and motor weakness in the extremities. The molecular mechanism is currently not understood, and there are no treatments available. Previously, we have shown an association between neuropathy symptoms of patients treated with paclitaxel and the plasma levels of neurotoxic sphingolipids, the 1‐deoxysphingolipids (1‐deoxySL) (Kramer et al, FASEB J, 2015). 1‐deoxySL are produced when the first enzyme of the sphingolipid biosynthetic pathway , se...

Conclusions: These results suggest that intrathecally administered R-PIA attenuates cold and mechanical static allodynia in a rat model of vincristine-induced peripheral neuropathy, partially due to its anti-inflammatory actions. PMID: 32046474 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPainful diabetic neuropathy (PDN) is a diabetes mellitus complication. Unfortunately, the mechanisms underlying PDN are still poorly understood. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-gated P2X7 receptor (P2X7R) plays a pivotal role in non-diabetic neuropathic pain, but little is known about its effects on streptozotocin (STZ)-induced peripheral neuropathy. Here, we explored whether spinal cord P2X7R was correlated with the generation of mechanical allodynia (MA) in STZ-induced type 1 diabetic neuropathy in mice. MA was assessed by measuring paw withdrawal thresholds and western blotting. Immunohistochemistry was applied to ...
