The Association of Preoperative Characteristics with Reintervention Risk in Patients Undergoing Revascularization for Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia (Iida. Reintervention Risk in CLTI).

CONCLUSIONS: The current study identified preoperative characteristics associated with an increased risk of reintervention. No preoperative characteristics had any significant interactions with EVT or surgical reconstruction. PMID: 32224557 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Tomiyama H, Shiina K Abstract The brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (brachial-ankle PWV), which is measured simply by wrapping pressure cuffs around the four extremities, is a simple marker to assess the stiffness of the medium- to large- sized arteries. The accuracy and reproducibility of its measurement have been confirmed to be acceptable. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease, especially advanced age and high blood pressure, are reported to be associated with an increase of the arterial stiffness. Furthermore, arterial stiffness might be involved in a vicious cycle with the development/progression o...

Authors: Abdelhamid BM, Khaled D, Mansour M, Hassan MM Abstract BACKGROUND: Pain control in the morbidly obese has presented as an anesthetic challenge. The aim of this study is to assess the analgesic efficacy of ultrasound guided bilateral erector spinae block compared to bilateral subcostal transversus abdominis plane block. METHODS: Prospective randomized, double-blinded controlled study was conducted at Kasr Alainy Hospital on 66 patients scheduled for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. Patients were randomly allocated into three groups and received general anesthesia: bilateral erector spinae block at the l...

In the lumbar spinal cord dorsal horn, release of afferent nerve glutamate activates the neurons that relay information about injury pain. Here, we examined the effects of protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) inhibition on NMDA receptor NR1 subunit protein expression and subcellular localization in an acute experimental arthritis model. PTK inhibitors genistein and lavendustin A reduced cellular histological translocation of NMDA NR1 in the spinal cord occurring after the inflammatory insult and the nociceptive behavioral responses to heat. The PTK inhibitors were administered into lumbar spinal cord by microdialysis, and seconda...

ConclusionsThe tested BFB splint is highly effective in reducing SB at the subconscious level, i.e., without waking the patient, and in achieving improvements in global pain perception. The results suggest that the BFB splint also provides a better treatment option for bruxism-related pain than an AOS. However, further research is needed, and specifically studies with a larger patient population displaying higher levels of pain at baseline.Clinical relevanceBy reducing burst duration and therefore the pathological load on the masticatory apparatus, the BFB splint reduces TMD and bruxism-related symptoms and improves patien...
