ConclusionsOur findings support the interpretation of a fenestration of the cervical segment of the internal carotid artery as a developmental vascular variant, but also suggest a substantial risk for dissection and ischemic stroke. Even in case of an accidental finding, clinicians should be aware of this. At least in this case, antiplatelet therapy seemed beneficial.

Am Fam Physician. 2022 Jan 1;105(1):39-49.ABSTRACTOrthostatic hypotension is defined as a decrease in blood pressure of 20 mm Hg or more systolic or 10 mm Hg or more diastolic within three minutes of standing from the supine position or on assuming a head-up position of at least 60 degrees during tilt table testing. Symptoms are due to inadequate physiologic compensation and organ hypoperfusion and include headache, lightheadedness, shoulder and neck pain (coat hanger syndrome), visual disturbances, dyspnea, and chest pain. Prevalence of orthostatic hypotension in the community setting is 20% in older adults and 5% in midd...

Am Fam Physician. 2022 Jan 1;105(1):24-32.ABSTRACTCluster headache, the most common form of trigeminal autonomic cephalgia, is a rare primary headache disorder that affects less than 1% of the population. The mean age of onset is 30 years, and it is two to three times more common in males. Cluster headache consists of attacks of severe unilateral pain located in the orbital, supraorbital, and/or temporal region that occur from every other day up to eight times per day and last from 15 to 180 minutes. The pain is associated with ipsilateral autonomic symptoms (most commonly lacrimation, conjunctival injection, nasal congest...

Int J Mol Med. 2022 Mar;49(3):29. doi: 10.3892/ijmm.2022.5084. Epub 2022 Jan 14.ABSTRACTMefenamic acid is a non‑steroidal anti‑inflammatory drug exhibiting a wide range of anti‑inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic and probable antiviral activities. The present study evaluated the efficacy of treatment with mefenamic acid combined with standard medical care vs. standard medical care plus a placebo in ambulatory patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19; nasal/oropharyngeal swabs reverse transcription‑PCR test results positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). The present study is a phase...

AbstractTick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is one of the most serious neurological tick-transmitted diseases. The initial phase usually occurs with non-specific symptoms such as fever, headache, and muscular pain. The clinical spectrum of the second phase of the disease typically ranges from mild meningitis to severe meningoencephalitis. Our case demonstrates a rare clinical case of acute myositis as manifestation of TBE virus infection. A 33-year-old female was admitted to the Rheumatology centre with a fever followed by proximal muscle pain and weakness. Despite the tick bite history and marginally positive anti-TBE virus IgM...

Pharmacol Rev. 2022 Jan;74(1):238-270. doi: 10.1124/pharmrev.121.000293.ABSTRACTGABAA receptors containing the α6 subunit are highly expressed in cerebellar granule cells and less abundantly in many other neuronal and peripheral tissues. Here, we for the first time summarize their importance for the functions of the cerebellum and the nervous system. The cerebellum is not only involved in motor control but also in cognitive, emotional, and social behaviors. α6βγ2 GABAA receptors located at cerebellar Golgi cell/granule cell synapses enhance the precision of inputs required for cerebellar timing of mo...

Print 2022 Jan-Mar.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: As the leading cause of emergency department visits in Canada, pain disproportionately affects socioeconomically disadvantaged populations. We examine the association between household food insecurity and individuals' pain-driven emergency department visits.METHODS: We designed a cross-sectional study linking the Canadian Community Health Survey 2005-2017 to the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System 2003-2017. Food insecurity was measured using a validated questionnaire. We excluded individuals with missing food ins...
