Perceived environmental barriers for people with spinal cord injury in Germany and their influence on quality of life.

CONCLUSION: The most life-hardening barriers were identified related to infrastructure, a category in which most barriers are modifiable, for example, buildings or transportation. PMID: 32735022 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Hassaballa D, Harvey RL Abstract The management of pain in persons with neurological injuries is challenging and complex. A holistic view and clinical approach are necessary when addressing pain in patients with neurological impairment because interpreting signs and symptoms and deciphering sources of pain is never a straightforward process. This problem is further magnified with the management of central pain syndromes. The best approach is to have a good understanding of the clinical characteristics commonly found in this patient population, in particular for patients with stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS)...

We describe pain intensity and interference at baseline and 1 year postinjury in burn, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and spinal cord injury (SCI) survivors and compare them with the general population (GP). We tested a custom Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) pain interference short form developed for use in trauma populations. METHODS We administered a pain intensity numerical rating scale and custom PROMIS pain interference short forms at baseline and/or 1 year postinjury from participants (≥18 years) at three Model System projects (burn, TBI, and SCI). Scores were compared across in...

Authors: Liao YX, He SS, He ZM Abstract Transient paralysis following spinal decompression surgery is a rare but devastating postoperative complication. Spinal cord ischemia-reperfusion injury has been identified as one of the crucial pathogenic factors contributing to the sudden neurological deterioration associated with spinal decompression surgery. 'White cord syndrome' is a characteristic imaging manifestation of spinal cord ischemia-reperfusion injury, referring to high intramedullary signal changes in the sagittal T2-weighted MRI scan with unexplained neurological deficits following surgical decompression. Th...

CONCLUSION: In our study, 70% of the muscles with a SMMT motor response of zero and 72% of the muscles with a SMMT motor response greater than or equal to one demonstrated SA on EMG. The use of the SMMT as a clinical measure to differentiate LMN from UMN integrity may be limited when applied. PMID: 32972329 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
