Spinal Cord Stimulation for Restless Legs Syndrome: Case Series and Mechanistic Hypothesis.

Stereotact Funct Neurosurg 2019 Apr 4:1-6. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA,

Background: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a well-established therapy for chronic pain syndromes, with growing applicability to other conditions. Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a widespread, chronic movement disorder managed primarily and incompletely by medication, and its etiology can be classified as idiopathic or secondary.

Methods: Three patients underwent SCS implantation for chronic back and/or leg pain with concomitant targeting of RLS: (1) a 34-year-old man with sporadic RLS symptoms that strongly intensified after military-related spinal fractures, (2) a 54-year-old man with RLS likely secondary to meralgia paresthetica, and (3) a 42-year-old man with low back and right lower extremity pain after a military motor vehicle accident.

An Alternate Approach to Using Candy Cane Stirrups in Vaginal Surgery.

Authors:
Eddie H M Sze

Obstet Gynecol 2019 Apr;133(4):666-668

Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, State University of New York, Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, New York.

Background: Candy cane stirrups are widely used for vaginal surgery because they provide sufficient operating space. When placed in the standard perpendicular alignment, however, these stirrups cause excessive flexion, abduction, and external rotation of the thigh, which may injure the femoral, lateral femoral cutaneous, sciatic, and common peroneal nerves.

Technique: We corrected this deficiency by positioning the stirrups parallel to the operating table, just above and tilting slightly toward its lower break. Read More

Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Nerve Decompression Guided by Preoperative Ultrasound Mapping.

Cureus 2018 Nov 28;10(11):e3652. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Neurosurgery, Columbia University, New York, USA.

Injury to the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) from compression or entrapment may result in meralgia paresthetica, a painful mononeuropathy of the anterolateral thigh. Surgical decompression of the LFCN may provide relief when conservative management fails. However, the considerable anatomic variability of this nerve may complicate surgical localization and thus prolong operative time. Read More

Entrapment Neuropathies of the Lower Extremity.

Med Clin North Am 2019 Mar 3;103(2):371-382. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Neurology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

Entrapment neuropathies in the lower limbs are a common neurologic problem and may present in any medical setting. Accurate identification and management of these nerve palsies can prevent pain, sensory loss, incoordination, and muscle weakness that may significantly affect a patient's functional mobility. In this article, the authors focus on the cause, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of select entrapment neuropathies of the lower extremity, including palsies of the common peroneal, lateral femoral cutaneous, femoral, and posterior tibial nerves.

[Bone fragility in type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.]

Clin Calcium 2019;29(1):51-56

Department of Medicine, Division of Diabetes, Metabolism and Endocrinology, Showa University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Diabetes mellitus causes hyperglycemia due to resistance to insulin action in peripheral organs in addition to progressive loss of β-cell function, thus it is involved in the development and progression of diabetic microangiopathy(retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy). In addition, abnormalities of bone metabolism is regarded as a chronic complication related to both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Accumulating evidence suggests that type 1 diabetes patients had decreased bone mineral density(BMD)and the fracture risk in the femoral neck is markedly higher, when compared to non-diabetic patients.

Histopathologic changes inside the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve obtained from patients with persistent symptoms of meralgia paresthetica.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Feb 17;161(2):263-269. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Pathology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Background: In patients with persistent symptoms of meralgia paresthetica, a neurectomy of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) can be performed to alleviate pain symptoms. The neurectomy procedure can be performed either as a primary procedure or after failure of a previously performed neurolysis or decompression of the LFNC (secondary neurectomy). The goal of the present study was to quantify the histopathologic changes inside the LFCN obtained from patients with persistent symptoms of meralgia paresthetica, and specifically to compare to what extend these changes are present after primary versus secondary neurectomy.

Extreme lateral lumbar interbody fusion (XLIF) in the management of degenerative scoliosis: a retrospective case series.

J Spine Surg 2018 Sep;4(3):610-615

Department of Neurosurgery, School of Medicine, University of Thessaly, Larissa, Greece.

Background: Surgical treatment of adult degenerative scoliosis (DS) always remains a challenge and often necessitates complex multilevel surgery via traditional open approaches. However, the severity of the procedure, in association with the fact that many of these patients are at an advanced age with several comorbidities, results in high rate of complications. Therefore, during the last decade, minimally invasive procedures have gained a place in the treatment of this pathology. Read More
