Abnormal thalamic functional connectivity correlates with cardiorespiratory fitness and physical activity in progressive multiple sclerosis
DiscussionPeople with PMS showed widespread brain atrophy, as well as pronounced intra-thalamic and thalamo-hippocampal RS FC abnormalities. White matter atrophy correlated with CRF, while increased thalamo-hippocampal RS FC was associated to worse PA levels. Thalamic RS FC might be used to monitor physical impairment and efficacy of rehabilitative and disease-modifying treatments in future studies. (Source: Journal of Neurology)

Connexin 26 (GJB2) Mutations Associated with Congenital Hearing Loss in a Country of Different Migration Routes: Turkey
AbstractTo determine the prevalence of DFNB1 mutations containing GJB2 (connexin 26) genes with deletion 35delG mutation in congenital hearing loss, and to analyze this gene according to regional differences based on geographic and socio-economic relations in Turkish patients in Istanbul. Our study includes 51 unrelated children with non-syndromic sensorineural hearing impairment with the proof of clinical ABR results. Molecular studies were performed using PCR- Mediated Site-Directed Mutagenesis assay, PCR and direct sequencing to screen for GJB2 and 35delG mutations. Genomic DNA is obtained from the peripheral blood whic...

Viruses, Vol. 15, Pages 783: Neurological Dysfunction in Long COVID Should Not Be Labelled as Functional Neurological Disorder
train There have been suggestions that Long COVID might be purely functional (meaning psychological) in origin. Labelling patients with neurological dysfunction in Long COVID as having functional neurological disorder (FND) in the absence of proper testing may be symptomatic of that line of thought. This practice is problematic for Long COVID patients, as motor and balance symptoms have been reported to occur in Long COVID frequently. FND is characterized by the presentation of symptoms that seem neurological but lack compatibility of the symptom with a neurological substrate. Although diagnostic classification accordi...

Oral rehabilitation with dental implants in patients with systemic sclerosis: A systematic review
ConclusionThe SSc status had no discernible impact on the implant survival rate. Implant-based treatments in SSc patients should not worsen the overall morbidity and should not conflict with systemic treatments. Before starting implant therapy, a thorough risk assessment is essential, though. (Source: Immunity, Inflammation and Disease)

Perioperative Management of Painful Phantom Limb Syndrome: A Narrative Review and Clinical Management Proposal
Conclusion: The current literature does not support that a single technique is effective in the prevention of PPLS. However, adequate acute pain control, rehabilitation and early restoration of the body scheme under a multidisciplinary and multimodal approach have shown benefit in the acute setting.PMID:36929710 | DOI:10.1080/15360288.2023.2187005 (Source: Journal of Pain and Palliative Care Pharmacotherapy)
