An 81-year-old man presented to the clinic for an annual general medical examination with insomnia and pruritus. His insomnia was associated with nocturnal leg restlessness, foot cramping, and pruritus of his feet. His cramping was not associated with activity and occurred mostly at night. He reported no fevers, weight loss, night sweats, numbness, skin lesions, or purulence. His medical history included obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treated with continuous positive airway pressure therapy, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, bilateral chronic onychomycosis of the toenails (recently completed tre...
Gabapentinoids are commonly prescribed for the treatment of neuropathic pain but are not recommended for the primary treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We sought (1) to investigate the preoperative use of gabapentinoids for the treatment of CTS and (2) to determine whether preoperative exposure is associated with persistent gabapentinoid and opioid use after carpal tunnel release.
Conclusion: Watching an educational surgical video to prepare for a cadaveric procedure significantly reduced operative errors and improved confidence among junior trainees performing a carpal tunnel release.
CONCLUSION: The form of SHJCM described in pediatric populations may occur in rare cases in adults. Should the name of juvenile mucinosis still be used in this event? PMID: 32466850 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Merideth MA, Introne WJ, Wang JA, O'Brien KJ, Huizing M, Gochuico BR Abstract Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by defective biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles. Clinical manifestations include a bleeding diathesis due to a platelet delta storage pool deficiency, oculocutaneous albinism, inflammatory bowel disease, neutropenia, and pulmonary fibrosis. Ten genes associated with HPS are identified to date, and each gene encodes a protein subunit of either Biogenesis of Lysosome-related Organelles Complex (BLOC)-1, BLOC-2, BLOC-3, or the Adaptor Protein...
