Evaluation and Management of the Emergency Department Headache.

Semin Neurol 2019 Feb 11;39(1):20-26. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Maricopa Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona.

The acute headache in the emergency department (ED) poses a diagnostic dilemma that may overwhelm providers attempting to weigh the cost of advanced workups against the risk of missing serious pathology. While the majority of headache concerns are benign primary headache disorders, identifying life-threatening secondary causes of headache-which may be broadly categorized into structural, infectious, and vascular causes-is the primary focus of evaluation in the ED. Secondary headaches are associated with a high morbidity and mortality, and require strict scrutiny of the history and physical examination to adequately risk-stratify patients. Read More

Association between serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and acute angle closure: What is known?

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):185-194. Epub 2018 Sep 29.

Department of Pathophysiology of Hearing and Balance System, Faculty of Medicine, Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are widely used antidepressants with a relatively safe profile. One of the complications associated with this group of drugs is acute angle closure. The mechanisms linking serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and acute angle closure are complex and may be interlinked with the effects of the drug on the inhibition of serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake, as well as pseudo-anticholinergic effects, dopaminergic effects, and idiosyncratic reactions with the drug molecule in the eye.

Clinical and pathological correlation of cotton wool spots in secondary angle closure glaucoma.

Am J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018 Jun 28;10:192-195. Epub 2018 Feb 28.

University of California, Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, Irvine, CA, USA.

Purpose: Cotton Wool Spots (CWS) are a commonly described retinal finding in the posterior segment associated with an extensive number of systemic diseases. The appearance of a CWS in the setting of glaucoma has rarely been reported and has not been correlated with pathology to localized loss of the nerve fiber layer previously. In this case report, we augment a previous report of an 18 year old female with a diagnosis of low grade ciliary body melanoma. Read More

Acute Glaucoma Attack Following Microvascular Decompression Surgery for Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo) 2018 Jun 17;58(6):266-269. Epub 2018 May 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Mitsui Memorial Hospital.

Microvascular decompression (MVD) is widely accepted as an effective surgical method to treat trigeminal neuralgia (TN), but the risks of morbidity and mortality must be considered. We experienced a case of acute angle-closure glaucoma attack following MVD for TN in an elderly patient, considered to be caused by lateral positioning during and after the surgery. A 79-year-old female underwent MVD for right TN in the left lateral decubitus position, and TN disappeared after the surgery. Read More
