Patient-reported 'treatment injuries' after hand surgery. A review of 1321 claims submitted to the Norwegian system of patient injury compensation 2007-2017.

CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: This is the first national study of patient-reported injuries after hand surgery treatment in Norway. The proportion of accepted claims is similar to that seen for orthopaedics. Acceptance levels were, however, higher for hand trauma cases than for disorders treated electively. ABBREVIATIONS: NPE: Norwegian system of patient injury compensation; SD: standard deviation; CT: computed tomography; MRI: magnetic resonance imaging; UiT: University of Tromsø - Arctic University of Norway.

Epilepsy is the neurological disorder defined by spontaneous recurrent seizures, which are abnormal patterns of electrical discharge in the brain. A major advance in neurology over the last 20 years is the identification of genetic variation as an important cause of epilepsy, and in particular as a cause of the epileptic encephalopathies, defined by childhood-onset, treatment-resistant epilepsy accompanied by developmental delay leading to intellectual disability. Unfortunately, this progress in genetic diagnosis has yet to translate to effective precision or targeted therapeutics. However, in this issue of the JCI, Li and...

This study shows dendritic branching defects that mainly involve the basal domain in P2 Ts65Dn mice, and the apical but not the other domains in P8 Ts65Dn mice. This suggests that dendritic defects may be related to dendritic compartment and age. The lack of a severe dendritic pathology in Ts65Dn pups is reminiscent of the delayed appearance of patent dendritic alterations in newborns with DS. This similarly highlights the usefulness of the Ts65Dn model for the study of the mechanisms underlying dendritic alterations in DS and the design of possible therapeutic interventions.
