[CME: Crowned-Dens-Syndrome - the Chameleon of Neck Pain].
Abstract CME: Crowned-Dens-Syndrome - the Chameleon of Neck Pain Abstract. Crowned Dens Syndrome (CDS) is a rare, under-diagnosed differential diagnosis of acute neck pain. Diagnosis is a challenge in clinical practice due to the similarity of symptoms to other diseases. Knowing this differential diagnosis of acute neck pain, unnecessary examinations and expensive therapy attempts can be avoided with a targeted approach. With this article we would like to sensitize colleagues accordingly. PMID: 32933384 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Praxis)

[Bruxism: Classification, Diagnostics and Treatment].
Abstract Bruxism: Classification, Diagnostics and Treatment Abstract. Bruxism, the grinding or clenching of teeth, is common in the population. Stress, anxiety syndromes and genetic disposition seem to be dominant factors that lead to increased muscle tension. A distinction is made between two circadian manifestations, sleep and wake bruxism. Bruxism is a major risk factor for tooth structure and dentures. The diagnosis is based on a targeted medical history and examination. Sleep bruxism can be demonstrated by electromyography and video recording in the sleep laboratory. The treatment aims to protect the hard too...

Aesthetic surgery tourism is a growing phenomenon, with a steady increase of people travelling abroad for surgical procedures. In our hospital, a relevant number of patients consulted the emergency department for complications after cosmetic surgery performed in foreign countries. This progressively increasing trend leads to multiple outpatient clinic consultations and surgical re-operations. We investigated this phenomenon at Lausanne University Hospital from May 2015...

[Lactic Acidosis and Other Misunderstandings].
Abstract Lactic Acidosis and Other Misunderstandings Abstract. Lactic acidosis is a frequently encountered clinical problem in intensive care medicine. Nevertheless, many of the underlying biochemical processes are insufficiently understood, which leads to various misconceptions. Physiologically, lactate is an important, continuously produced carrier of energy and by no means a metabolic 'waste product'. Lactate is the corresponding base to lactic acid and is produced directly from pyruvate. In this reaction H+ is consumed and therefore lactate production itself cannot be directly responsible for the simultaneousl...

Discussions on fundamental reform concepts of training rarely take place.

As a result, there is no fundamental debate about the goal and concept of medical education. The issue of the assumption of medical activities by non-physician professions is at least discussed, but hardly any of it is implemented. It is closely linked to the question of how many physicians are needed in Switzerland. The following considerations, which some may find provocative, will hopefully trigg...
