Parenting, self-regulation, and treatment adherence in pediatric chronic headache: A self-determination theory perspective.

J Health Psychol 2019 Nov 1:1359105319884596. Epub 2019 Nov 1.

Boston Children's Hospital, USA.

This study examined parenting factors associated with children's self-regulation and physician-rated treatment adherence using a self-determination theory framework in pediatric chronic headache. Participants were 58 children and adolescents (aged 10-17 years), who underwent initial and follow-up multidisciplinary evaluation at a headache clinic, and their mothers. Regression analyses showed that higher maternal autonomy support and structure were significantly related to children's lower treatment-related reactance and higher adherence. Read More

Autoimmune phenomena involving the pituitary gland in children: New developing data about diagnosis and treatment.

Autoimmun Rev 2019 Oct 8;18(10):102363. Epub 2019 Aug 8.

Institute of Pediatrics, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli, IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

The contribution of autoimmune phenomena to dysfunction of hypophysis or hypothalamus is far to be unraveled and also the specific pathways of hypophysitis are poorly understood until now, mostly for the pediatric population. Primary hypophysitis is rare in children and often regarded as an autoimmune disorder, following the evidence of lymphoplasmacytic infiltration in the pituitary gland, detection of anti-pituitary antibodies (APA) and anti-hypotalamus antibodies (AHA) by indirect immunofluorescence on cryostatic sections of human or primate hypophysis and hypothalamus, and coexistence with other autoimmune disorders. The rarity of this condition and the lack of ad hoc studies make hard any assessment of the real incidence of hypophysitis in pediatric patients, and also the role of APA and AHA has been poorly investigated in children with idiopathic hypopituitarism.

When "a headache is not just a headache": A qualitative examination of parent and child experiences of pain after childhood cancer.

Psychooncology 2019 09 16;28(9):1901-1909. Epub 2019 Jul 16.

Patient Partner, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Objective: Today, more than 80% of children diagnosed with cancer are expected to survive. Despite the high prevalence of pain associated with the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer, there is a limited understanding of how having cancer shapes children's experience and meaning of pain after treatment has ended. This study addresses this gap by exploring childhood cancer survivors' (CCS') experiences of pain from their perspective and the perspective of their parents. Read More

Non-invasive Brain Stimulation in Pediatric Migraine: A Perspective From Evidence in Adult Migraine.

Front Neurol 2019 12;10:364. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Dipartimento di Promozione della Salute, Materno-Infantile, di Medicina Interna e Specialistica di Eccellenza "G. D'Alessandro", University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy.

Pediatric migraine remains still a challenge for the headache specialists as concerns both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. The less ability of children to describe the exact features of their migraines and the lack of reliable biomarker for migraine contribute to complicate the diagnostic process. Therefore, there's need for new effective tools for supporting diagnostic and therapeutic approach in children with migraine. Read More

Defence response mobilization in response to provocation or imagery of interoceptive sensations in adolescents with chronic pain: a study protocol.

Pain Rep 2018 Sep 11;3(Suppl 1):e680. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology and Psychotherapy, University of Trier, Trier, Germany.

Introduction: Fear of pain seems to be a key factor in the development and maintenance of chronic pain and pain-related disability. Interoceptive fear conditioning is assumed to constitute an important mechanism in the origins and maintenance of fear of pain. If conditioned stimuli such as internal bodily sensations are repeatedly paired with pain (unconditioned stimulus), they in turn elicit a conditioned fear response, including defence mobilization such as startle modulation and changes in heart rate and electrodermal activity.

Atomoxetine: a review of its use in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder in children and adolescents.

Paediatr Drugs 2009 ;11(3):203-26

Wolters Kluwer Health mid R: Adis, Auckland, New Zealand, an editorial office of Wolters Kluwer Health, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Atomoxetine (Strattera(R)) is a selective norepinephrine (noradrenaline) reuptake inhibitor that is not classified as a stimulant, and is indicated for use in patients with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Atomoxetine is effective and generally well tolerated. It is significantly more effective than placebo and standard current therapy and does not differ significantly from or is noninferior to immediate-release methylphenidate; however, it is significantly less effective than the extended-release methylphenidate formulation OROS(R) methylphenidate (hereafter referred to as osmotically released methylphenidate) and extended-release mixed amfetamine salts.

Annu Rev Nurs Res 2003 ;21:95-121

Theresa A. Thomas Faculty, School of Nursing, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA.

This chapter summarizes and critiques research on physical symptoms in children and adolescents from a developmental science perspective. Studies conducted by researchers from various disciplines, primarily after 1990, were identified through searches of MEDLINE, CINAHL, and Psyc INFO. This review focuses on two areas: the prevalence of common physical symptoms--headache, abdominal pain or discomfort, musculoskeletal pain and fatigue--in pediatric populations and the developmental issues associated with these symptom experiences.

Headache 2000 Mar;40(3):200-3

Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, USA.

Objectives: Our goals were (1) to investigate the causes of acute headache in childhood from the emergency department perspective and (2) to search for clinical clues that might distinguish headache associated with serious underlying disease.

Background: The clinical presentation of headache in children and adolescents can be separated into 5 temporal patterns: acute, acute-recurrent, chronic progressive, chronic nonprogressive, and mixed. Few data exist regarding acute headache in children. Read More

Patient recruitment--European perspective.

Authors:
K Hoppu

Pediatrics 1999 Sep;104(3 Pt 2):623-6

Departments of Pediatrics and Pharmacology, Children's Hospital, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

A considerable number of patients have to be recruited in a clinical trial to obtain solid results. In pediatric studies, patient recruitment is frequently problematic. In the simple common childhood illnesses, the number of recruitable patients is certainly large, but they may be hard to reach, and the imbalance between potential benefit and inconvenience of participation may reduce motivation to enroll.

Mayo Clin Proc 1994 Nov;69(11):1098-107

Division of Nephrology, Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles, California.

Objective: To provide an overview of clinical aspects of hypertension in pediatric patients.

Design: The recommended diagnostic studies and the management options for increased blood pressure levels in prepubertal and adolescent patients are reviewed.

Results: In pediatric patients with three consecutive blood pressure measurements that exceed the 95th percentile, a hypertension-oriented personal and family history should be elicited, and a focused physical examination should be conducted for evidence of target organ damage, left ventricular hypertrophy, and potential causes of secondary hypertension.

Childhood headache is a common pediatric problem. Clinical researchers have evaluated several behavioral treatment, such as biofeedback and relaxation training, that may be viable interventions. Adding a developmental perspective to the evaluation and treatment of childhood headache is a likely way to increase the effectiveness of these strategies. Read More

Objective and subjective side effects of research lumbar punctures in children and adolescents.

Psychiatry Res 1988 Jul;25(1):59-63

Child Psychiatry Branch, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, MD 20892.

Lumbar punctures are a common clinical procedure in pediatric populations, yet little systematic information about side effects or the child's perspective of the procedure is available. In a subset (n = 20) of a sample of children and adolescents with disruptive behavior disorders, we recorded children's ratings of research lumbar puncture in comparison to other hospital experiences of blood sampling, electroencephalography, and going to school. Lumbar puncture did not differ from the other procedures in terms of preference. Read More
