Authors: Sencan S, Edipoglu IS, Celenlioglu AE, Yolcu G, Gunduz OH Abstract Background: We aimed to compare interlaminar epidural steroid injections (ILESI) and bilateral transforaminal epidural steroid injections (TFESI) on pain intensity, functional status, depression, walking distance, and the neuropathic component in patients with lumbar central spinal stenosis (LCSS). Methods: The patients were divided into either the ILESI or the bilateral TFESI groups. Prime outcome measures include the numerical rating scale (NRS), Oswestry disability index (ODI), Beck depression inventory (BDI), and pain-free walking d...

Authors: Tünel M, Çakmak S, Tamam L, Demir T Abstract Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), typically associated with the triad of gait disturbance, dementia and urinary incontinence, rarely presents with symptoms of mania, depression or psychosis and psychiatric disorders may complicate the diagnosis.

Authors: Gündüz N, Akpınar Aslan E, Eren F, Sodan Turan H, Öztürk M, Tural Ü Abstract OBJECTIVE: One of the METHODS used to assess autonomic nervous system dysfunction in the etiology of panic disorder (PD) is heart rate variability (HRV). HRV is controlled by the sympathetic and parasympathetic (vagal) branches of the autonomic nervous system and reflects the capacity of autonomic stimulation by the parasympathetic system. The aim of this study was to evaluate heart rate variability (HRV) time domain parameters based on twenty four hour holter ECG analysis among drug-naive patients with p...

CONCLUSION: Lack of a correlation between the negative symptoms and alexithymic symptoms in DS suggested that the respective symptoms represented different independent phenomena in schizophrenia. A future study might explore the relationship between alexithymia and negative symptoms in association with cognitive functioning. PMID: 32594483 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractIntroductionEndometriosis is a common gynecologic disease associated with a significant burden on women ’s health and healthcare systems. Currently approved hormonal treatments for endometriosis can be effective in controlling symptoms, but may have clinically relevant side effects that limit their long-term use. Dienogest 2 mg (Visanne; Bayer AG, Berlin, Germany) is a 19-nortestosterone derivative that significantly reduces menstrual bleeding, dysmenorrhea, premenstrual pain, dyspareunia, and pelvic pain in women with endometriosis. Although dienogest 2 mg has demonstrated efficacy in clinical tria...

On Thursday afternoon, the American Health Care Act passed in the House by a slim margin ― and the effect it will have on women specifically could be devastating.  Simply put, the bill would allow states to discriminate against women. Before Obamacare, insurers could consider the following pre-existing conditions: being pregnant, having had postpartum depression, being a survivor of sexual assault, having had a C-section or being a survivor of domestic violence. Under the AHCA, states are allowed to waive the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing conditions, meaning if you’re deeme...

Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...

Years of bowel disease and endometriosis had left me with a very sticky, complex pelvis. I reached the age of 50 and an MRI indicated I had ovarian cancer. This proved to be incorrect but my consultant was becoming increasingly concerned at the state of my insides and how the suspect masses presented on ultrasound and MRI’s. So much so he recommended a complete hysterectomy as otherwise I would live with this uncertainty for ever. This was four years ago – I was warned the surgery would be complex owing to numerous operations for bowel disease and endometriosis but on the basis the scans was no longer reliable,...
