ConclusionThe prevalence of lymphoma reported in sarcoidosis patients is higher than the general population which further supports the possible increased risk of lymphoma in sarcoidosis. Diagnosis of sarcoidosis at a younger age, African –American race, cutaneous, and salivary glands sarcoidosis were associated with lymphoma. Sarcoidosis patients who developed lymphoma reported higher disease burden and more non-organ-specific manifestations.

This study aims to investigate the efficacy and safety of acupuncture therapy for IBS patients compared with those of conventional treatments. We also aim to identify the optimal acupoint combination recommended for IBS and to clarify the clinical advantage of the “multiacupoint co-effect and synergistic effect.”Methods and analysisA total of 204 eligible patients who meet the Rome IV criteria for IBS will be randomly stratified into acupuncture group A, acupuncture group B, or the control group in a 1:1:1 ratio with a central web-based randomization system. The prespecified acupoints used in the control group ...

AbstractType 1 diabetes represents an autoimmune condition with a strong inherited background, and its incidence is increasing worldwide. About 25% of such cases are diagnosed in adulthood, some even as late as the ninth decade of life. The number of older adults with type 1 diabetes is increasing due to improvements in care and decreased mortality rate. However, there is a lack of clinical trials in people older than 70 years of age with type 1 diabetes complicated with comorbidities, frailty, and dependency. The management of type 1 diabetes and the goals of therapy should be individualized based on the patient's health ...

Chronic pain frequently co-occurs with heightened negative emotions, such as fear, anger, worry, and low mood.25,33,89,95 Over time negative emotional states become an increasingly prominent feature of chronic pain.53 Anxiety and depression are co-morbid in up to 80 percent of people with chronic pain,2 –4,80 and there is a heightened prevalence of harm avoidance, characterised by excessive worry, fear, and pessimism.39,63,64 Up to 70 percent of people with chronic pain experience sleep problems,22 and compared to the general population, quality of life and well-being are reduced.

Neural Plast. 2021 Oct 8;2021:7498714. doi: 10.1155/2021/7498714. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTNumerous neuroimaging studies have demonstrated that the brain plasticity is associated with chronic low back pain (cLBP). However, there is a lack of knowledge regarding the underlying mechanisms of thalamic pathways for chronic pain and psychological effects in cLBP caused by lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Combining psychophysics and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we investigated the structural and functional brain plasticity in 36 patients with LDH compared with 38 age- and gender-matched healthy controls. We found that (1) LDH ...

This article presents Initiative on Methods, Measurement, and Pain Assessment in Clinical Trials (IMMPACT) consensus recommendations for the design of opioid-sparing clinical trials. The recommendations presented in this article are based on the following definition of an opioid-sparing intervention: any intervention that (1) prevents the initiation of treatment with opioid analgesics, (2) decreases the duration of such treatment, (3) reduces the total dosages of opioids that are prescribed for or used by patients, or (4) reduces opioid-related adverse outcomes (without increasing opioid dosages), all without causing an un...

ConclusionsCompared to current evidence-based approaches, self-compassion interventions have small effects on improved self-compassion in individuals with chronic illness. However, more rigorous RCTs that include follow-up assessments are needed prior to determining whether self-compassion interventions are an effective treatment for co-morbid mental and physical health challenges among adults with chronic illness.

Abdominal trauma leads rarely to severe renal injury such as acquired arterioveinous fistula. Here, we present the case of a 46-year-old man with a history of suicide attempt by a gunshot in the abdomen. At that time, explorative laparotomy was unremarkable. He consulted 23 years later for chronic left lumbar pain and was diagnosed with an arterioveinous fistula of left renal vessels with a-10-cm aneurysm of the left renal artery. We performed a left nephrectomy and endovascular clamping was the best option to manage this giant aneurysm in a hostile abdomen.
