Suprascapular nerve block is a clinically attractive alternative to interscalene nerve block during arthroscopic shoulder surgery: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

J Orthop Surg Res 2021 Jun 11;16(1):376. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Orthopedic, Beijing Tsinghua Changgung Hospital, School of Clinical Medicine, Tsinghua University, No. 168 Litang Road, Dongxiaokou Town, Changping District, Beijing, 102218, China.

Background: The interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB) is a commonly used nerve block technique for postoperative analgesia in patients undergoing shoulder arthroscopy surgery; however, it is associated with potentially serious complications. The use of suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) has been described as an alternative strategy with fewer reported side effects for shoulder arthroscopy. This review aimed to compare the impact of SSNB and ISB during shoulder arthroscopy surgery. Read More

Extreme bradycardia as presentation of an eating disorder.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jun 9;14(6). Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Cardiovascular Research Unit, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield, UK

We present a case of extreme bradycardia in an 18-year-old man, accompanied by bilateral pleural effusions, pericardial effusion, endocrine dysregulation and Horner's syndrome. Despite extensive investigations as an inpatient and multidisciplinary input, it was not until subsequent assessment by an endocrine team that it was revealed that his presentation was attributable to an eating disorder. Following dietary advice, easing of extreme exercise and continued support, the patient improved in all parameters including body mass index and he remains well. Read More

Emergency Medicine, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, QAT.

A spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is an uncommon disease, but it is associated with significant morbidity. SEA can be promoted by multiple risk factors. Moreover, the diagnosis of SEA usually requires the presence of a classic triad of back pain, fever, and neurological deficit, hence, the difficulty in making the diagnosis if presented otherwise.

Isolated Third Nerve Palsy as a Rare and Solo Presentation of Internal Carotid Artery Dissection in a Young Female - a Surprising Finding in the Angiogram.

Cureus 2021 Mar 22;13(3):e14035. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Internal Medicine, University of Central Florida College of Medicine, Ocala, USA.

Internal carotid artery dissection (ICAD) is a known but uncommon cause of ischemic stroke among young and middle-aged patients. A common presentation includes ipsilateral headache, unilateral oculosympathetic palsy (partial Horner syndrome), or ischemic stroke but some reported cases present with less common manifestations, such as lower cranial nerve syndrome (IX, X, XI, XII). However, third cranial nerve palsy is an extremely rare presentation of ICAD. Read More

Cerebral Microangiopathy in Two Dogs with Cutaneous and Renal Glomerular Vasculopathy.

J Comp Pathol 2021 Apr 8;184:95-100. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists, Hursley, Winchester, UK.

Cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV) is an emerging disease in the UK, but its aetiology remains unclear. It is considered a thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) in which the kidney and skin are the most commonly affected organs. We now document two cases of CRGV with brain lesions, which may have accounted for neurological signs displayed by these animals. Read More

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2021 Feb 25;2:CD012968. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Biostatistics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Background: Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women.

Genes Brain Behav 2021 Jun 4;20(5):e12727. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Department of Human Genetics, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

RASopathies are neuro-cardio-facio-cutaneous disorders stemming from mutations in genes regulating the RAS-MAPK pathway. Legius syndrome is a rare RASopathy disorder caused by mutations in the SPRED1 gene. SPRED1 protein negatively regulates activation of Ras by inhibiting RAS/RAF and by its interaction with neurofibromin, a Ras GTPase-activating protein (RAS-GAP). Read More

Improving Exposure Using Thoracoscopy for Apical Thoracic Neuroblastoma Encasing the Subclavian Vessels.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2021 May 16;31(5):589-593. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Department of Surgery, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, USA.

Posterolateral thoracotomy provides limited access to the thoracic apex that can result in poor visualization of subclavian vessels, their branches, and the brachial plexus. A thoracoscopic approach may overcome these limitations. We report a thoracoscopic approach and associated technical challenges in resecting apical thoracic neuroblastoma encasing the subclavian artery. Read More

Harlequin syndrome in a pediatric population: a case series.

Acta Neurol Belg 2021 Jun 30;121(3):625-631. Epub 2021 Jan 30.

Department of Neurology/Pediatric Neurology, AZ Sint-Jan Hospital, Bruges, Belgium.

Harlequin syndrome is a rare condition, presenting with unilateral facial flushing and hyperhidrosis in response to physical exercise, heat or emotional stressors and has scarcely been reported in pediatric patients. It is caused by a dysfunction of vasomotor and sudomotor sympathetic fiber activity inhibiting the ability to flush on the affected side, causing the neurologically intact side to appear red. We present three pediatric cases of this uncommon syndrome, each of them of different origin and displaying distinct associated (neurological) symptoms, and review medical literature. Read More
