Cumming Alba Ramos-Fransi Alicia Martínez-Piñeiro Gisela Nogales-Gadea The number of cytosine-thymine-guanine (CTG) repeats (‘CTG expansion size’) in the 3′untranslated region (UTR) region of the dystrophia myotonica-protein kinase (DMPK) gene is a hallmark of myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1), which has been related to age of disease onset and clinical severity. However, accurate determination of CTG expansion size is challenging due to its characteristic instability. We compared five different approaches (heat pul...

CONCLUSION: Prior to reviewing the literature for discussing this case — I had not fully appreciated the impact of the mechanism of cardiac compression as a causative factor in: i) altering QRS morphology; ii) precipitating supraventricular and/or ventricular arrhythmias (including VT, which can be sustained) — and, iii) producing ST-T wave changes (ST elevation and/or depression) that may mimic old or new infarction.CT imaging (as shown by Dr. Smith) clearly suggests there was compression of cardiac structures in thi...

CONCLUSIONS: Previously reported differences between latencies and stimulus sites for midline BC stimulation were confirmed. Target distance had no significant effect on oVEMP amplitude, which suggests it is not modified like other components of the t-LVOR. PMID: 32623413 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common condition, loosely defined by some physicians as a stomach ache without a clear cause. More specifically, it is characterized by the feeling of fullness during or after a meal, or a burning sensation in the mid-upper abdomen, just below the rib cage (not necessarily associated with meals). The symptoms can be severe enough to interfere with finishing meals or participating in regular daily activities. Those with FD often go through multiple tests like upper endoscopy, CT scan, and gastric emptying study. But despite often-severe symptoms, no clear cause (such as cancer, ulcer disease, ...

ConclusionWomen diagnosed with GDM have similar basal SNA versus normoglycemic pregnant women, but greater neurovascular transduction, meaning a greater influence of the sympathetic nerve activity in these women. We also document evidence of chemoreceptor hyperactivity, which may influence SNA in women with GDM but not in controls.
