We report a 42-year old men who presented to our observation with acute tongue swelling and atrophy of left side of tongue from a hypoglossal nerve injury. A magnetic resonance imaging revealed a denervation of the left half of the tongue from a hypoglossal nerve injury due to left extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection, without evidence of ischemic stroke. The urine toxicology screen test revealed a positivity for cocaine. This case report suggest to perform in young patient a toxicological drug screening test in presence of ICA dissection with hypoglossal nerve injury and an acute tongue swelling. However ...

This study is a prospective clinical study. Purpose: This study aims to evaluate the characteristics of trunk musculature and intervertebral discs by using magnetic resonance imaging in patients with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) with thoracic and lumbar fractures. Overview of Literature: Muscle atrophy is an immediate consequence of SCI and is associated with secondary complications. At present, there are limited clinical data on muscle and disc responses to fractures of the thoracic and lumbar spine. Methods: A total of 51 patients with a mean age of 31.75±10.42 years who suffered traumatic SCI were incl...

Authors: Ogon I, Takashima H, Morita T, Oshigiri T, Terashima Y, Yoshimoto M, Fukushi R, Fujimoto S, Emori M, Teramoto A, Takebayashi T, Yamashita T Abstract Study Design: Cross-sectional study. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to elucidate the relevance among Schmorl's node (SN), chronic low back pain (CLBP), and intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) with the use of magnetic resonance imaging T2 mapping. Overview of Literature: SN may be combined with CLBP and/or IVDD; however, their relationship has not been determined to date. Methods: A total of 105 subjects were included (48 men and 57 wome...

CONCLUSION: Spinal injuries in childhood are rare and should be treated in specialized spine centers. Pediatric patients with a stable cardiopulmonary status should undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) if a spinal trauma is suspected. The basic principles of the treatment of spinal trauma in children is the restoration of spinal stability and correct anatomical parameters as well as the protection of all neural structures. The potential for correction and regeneration of the individual spinal sections depending on the age of the patient must be considered for deciding between operative vs. conservative treatm...

CONCLUSION: Injuries to the pediatric spine are rare and should be treated in specialized spine centers. Pediatric patients with a stable cardiopulmonary status should undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) if a spinal trauma is suspected. Classification systems and therapeutic recommendations for injuries to the cervical spine known from adult patients could also be used for adolescent patients. This is not possible for children under the age of 10 years. Only few classification systems exist for this age group. Basic principles of the treatment of spinal trauma in children is the restoration of spinal stabili...

CONCLUSION: Clinicians should consider the possibility of SPN for pancreatic heterogeneous masses. Multiple diagnostic imaging modalities and EUS-FNA may contribute to the preoperative diagnosis of this disease. PMID: 32211105 [PubMed]

This study investigated the protective effect of HDAC inhibition by Scriptaid after HBID. METHODS: We established the neonatal rat HBID model, and used intraperitoneal injection of HDAC inhibitor scriptaid as a treatment. 7 days after HBID, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to detect infarct volume. The otarod test, wire hang test and Morris water maze were used to evaluate the HBID model of neurobehavioral dysfunction. Immunoblotting, immunofluorescence, and quantitative real-time PCR (RT-qPCR) were used to detect gene expression. RESULTS: HDAC inhibition by Scriptaid treatment could not only red...

Abstract We investigated the association between scripture memorization and brain tissue using magnetic resonance imaging techniques. Participants comprised 63 healthy adults between the ages of 35 and 80 years old with no neurological or psychological disorders. Of these, 19 had completely memorized the Quran, 28 had partially memorized parts of Quran while 16, the control group, had not committed the Quran into their memory. White matter, grey matter and cerebrospinal fluid volumes were calculated. The brain tissue volumes of those who memorized the entire Quran and those who memorized only a small portion were ...

Conclusion: Our study indicated that distinctive patterns of FC in each subregion of insula suggest that the insular subareas participate in the NP processing through different FC following ISCI. Further, insula subregions could serve as a therapeutic target for NP following ISCI. PMID: 32211038 [PubMed - in process]
