Thoracic disk herniation diagnosed with an upper body traction procedure in the sitting position.

J Gen Fam Med 2021 May 14;22(3):148-149. Epub 2020 Dec 14.

A 51-year-old man experienced sudden abdominal pain from the umbilicus to the right flank 5 days before his hospital visit. His abdominal pain disappeared when the examiner lifted his upper body in the sitting position. MRI revealed posterior intervertebral disc protrusion in the right paramedian region at the 9th/10th thoracic vertebrae. With the treatment, it is reported that traction is the appropriate initial approach for spine radiculopathy. Improvement with upper body traction performed in this case, which is a previously unreported maneuver, appears to be useful for diagnosis because it eliminates the influence of gravity and reduces intradiscal pressure.

The Clinical Key Features of Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness in the General Medicine Outpatient Setting: A Case Series Study of 33 Patients.

Intern Med 2020 Nov 28;59(22):2857-2862. Epub 2020 Jul 28.

Department of General Medicine, Chiba University Hospital, Japan.

Objective This case series aimed to investigate the clinical and pathological characteristics of persistent postural perceptual dizziness (PPPD). Methods We retrospectively examined the medical records of patients with chronic dizziness in our department, and tracked the percentage of PPPD, the age and sex, disorder duration, exacerbating factors for dizziness, and duration of momentary worsening dizziness. We also examined the duration of momentary worsening dizziness in cases of depression, anxiety disorder, and somatic symptom disorder. Results Among 229 patients with chronic dizziness, 14.4% (33/229) met the diagnostic criteria for PPPD. PPPD was the second most common disorder of patients with chronic dizziness after depression. The median age of patients with PPPD was 75 (75.8% female) and the median duration of the disorder was 60 months (range: 3-360 months). The exacerbating factors were motion without regard to direction or position (90.9%), upright posture (66.7%), and exposure to moving visual stimuli or complex visual patterns (30.3%). While the duration of momentary worsening dizziness was less than 10 minutes in 93.9% of patients with PPPD, the duration in patients with depression, anxiety disorder, and somatic symptom disorder were 3.6 % (2/55), 16.1% (5/31), and 0% (0/11), respectively. When the duration was less than 10 minutes, the odds ratios of PPPD for depression and anxiety disorder were 46.5 (95% CI: 6.1-362.0) and 40.3 (95% CI: 7.4-219.3), respectively. Conclusion Short episodes of momentary worsening dizziness constitute a distinctive feature of PPPD that may be useful for differentiating PPPD from other types of psychogenic dizziness.
