Biomembrane formation after radiofrequency ablation prevents bone cement extravasation during percutaneous vertebroplasty for treating vertebral metastases with posterior margin destruction: An animal study

Conclusions: The biomembrane barrier formed at the tumor edge after RFA can prevent bone cement leakage into the spinal canal, reducing spinal cord injury and prolonging the survival time.

In conclusion, using a large cohort with rich health and DNA methylation data, we provide the first comparison of six major epigenetic measures of biological ageing with respect to their associations with leading causes of mortality and disease burden. DNAm GrimAge outperformed the other measures in its associations with disease data and associated clinical traits. This may suggest that predicting mortality, rather than age or homeostatic characteristics, may be more informative for common disease prediction. Thus, proteomic-based methods (as utilised by DNAm GrimAge) using large, physiologically diverse protein sets for p...

Conclusion: Although persons with SCI receive suboptimal rates of preventative care screenings and report extensive barriers to care, overall, they are not at an increased risk of CRC mortality. The current recommendations for CRC screening should be continued for these individuals while reducing barriers to care. PMID: 32870755 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Coronel MF Abstract Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathic pain (CIPNP) is a frequent and devastating side effect of cancer therapy. No preventive strategies are currently available. We investigated the use of resveratrol (RESV) in the prevention of CIPNP and evaluated key components of the antioxidant defense system and neuroinflammatory factors as possible mediators contributing to RESV actions. Male rats were injected with oxaliplatin (OXA) and received daily oral RESV. Paw mechanical and thermal allodynia, oxidative stress, antioxidant, pro-inflammatory and neuronal injury/activation markers were evaluat...

The American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) offers an opportunity for members to be the guest editor of a Supplement to its journal, the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Archives). The goal of the ACRM supplements is to publish high quality scientific manuscripts, which are thematically organized and of interest to ACRM members and to the general readership of the Archives. We are interested in proposals in all fields of rehabilitation, but especially those of interest to the ACRM membership as indicated by the existence of special interest and networking groups for brain injury, spinal cord in...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent advances in multidisciplinary treatments for various cancers have extended the survival period of patients with spinal metastases. Radiotherapy has been widely used to treat spinal metastases; nevertheless, long-term survivors sometimes undergo more surgical intervention after radiotherapy because of local tumor relapse. Generally, intradural invasion of a spinal tumor seldom occurs because the dura mater serves as a tissue barrier against tumor infiltration. However, after radiation exposure, some spinal tumors invade the dura mater, resulting in leptomeningeal dissemination, intraoper...

Discussion Pediatric cancers in the US number about 12,000 per year. After injury, it is the second leading cause of death in children and adolescents. Cancer presentations vary widely, but often begin with non-specific symptoms that continue or progress depending on the location and tumor type. Patients can present with oncological emergencies especially if there are mechanical obstruction such as superior vena cava syndrome or cerebral herniation. More commonly are infections due to immunosuppression. Cancer treatment also causes its own myriad of problems that clinicians need to be aware of to diagnosis and treat, but a...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe goal of this review is to provide a comprehensive overview of (i) bone and muscle tissue modifications pathophysiology in spinal cord injury (SCI), (ii) experimental data on the physiopathological mechanisms underpinning these modifications and their similarities with the aging process, and (iii) potential clinical implications in the management of the disabling sequelae of SCI.Recent FindingsSeveral studies attempted to describe the biology underpinning the links between bone and muscle tissues in the setting of highly disabling conditions, such as osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and neurodegenerati...
