Electroacupuncture Alleviated Referral Hindpaw Hyperalgesia via Suppressing Spinal Long-Term Potentiation (LTP) in TNBS-Induced Colitis Rats.

Neural Plast 2019 11;2019:2098083. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, Beijing 100700, China.

Although referred pain or hypersensitivity has been repeatedly reported in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients and experimental colitis rodents, little is known about the neural mechanisms. Spinal long-term potentiation (LTP) of nociceptive synaptic transmission plays a critical role in the development of somatic hyperalgesia in chronic pain conditions. Herein, we sought to determine whether spinal LTP contributes to the referral hyperalgesia in colitis rats and particularly whether electroacupuncture (EA) is effective to alleviate somatic hyperalgesia via suppressing spinal LTP.

Interleukin 6 decreases nociceptor expression of the potassium channel KV1.4 in a rat model of hand-arm vibration syndrome.

Pain 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and.

Chronic muscle pain is a prominent symptom of the hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), an occupational disease induced by exposure to vibrating power tools, but the underlying mechanism remains unknown. We evaluated the hypothesis that vibration induces an interleukin 6 (IL-6)-mediated downregulation of the potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 4 (KV1.4) in nociceptors leading to muscle pain.

Intraperitoneal alloplasty combined with the anterior separation technique in giant incisional hernias.

Pol Przegl Chir 2018 Dec;91(1):1-5

Ukrainian Hernia Society P.L. Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Department of Surgery and Proctology; Ukrainian Center for Surgical Treatment of Abdominal Hernia.

The use of the anterior technique for abdominal wall components separation combined with "onlay" alloplasty (ACST + onlay) in giant incisional hernias (IH) may pose a surgical challenge as it does not exclude increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and the occurrence of abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). There remains a high incidence of surgical site complications. In our view, the use of intra-abdominal alloplasty combined with anterior separation of the anterior abdominal wall components (ACST + IPOM) will contribute to the improvement of surgical outcomes in giant IH.

Pharmacology Update: Low-Dose Naltrexone as a Possible Nonopioid Modality for Some Chronic, Nonmalignant Pain Syndromes.

Am J Hosp Palliat Care 2019 Mar 27:1049909119838974. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

2 Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Ballad Health System, Kingsport, TN, USA.

Pain can have a devastating effect on the quality of life of patients in palliative medicine. Thus far, majority of research has been centered on opioid-based pain management, with a limited empirical evidence for the use of nonopioid medications in palliative care. However, opioid and nonopioid medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have their limitations in the clinical use due to risk of adverse effects, therefore, there is a need for more research to be directed to finding an alternative approach to pain management in comfort care setting.
