Quantitative MRI of the brachial plexus shows specific changes in nerve architecture in CIDP, MMN and motor neuron disease.

Eur J Neurol 2021 May 1. Epub 2021 May 1.

Department of Radiology, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Background: The immunological pathophysiologies of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) differ considerably, but neither has been elucidated completely. Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques as diffusion tensor imaging, T2 mapping, and fat fraction analysis may indicate in vivo pathophysiological changes in nerve architecture. Our study aims to systematically study nerve architecture of the brachial plexus in patients with CIDP, MMN, motor neuron disease (MND) and healthy controls using these quantitative MRI techniques.

Porphyric neuropathy.

Muscle Nerve 2021 Mar 31. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Section on Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Wake Forest Baptist health, Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA.

Acute hepatic porphyrias are inherited metabolic disorders that may present with polyneuropathy, which if not diagnosed early can lead to quadriparesis, respiratory weakness, and death. Porphyric neuropathy is an acute to subacute motor predominant axonal neuropathy with a predilection for the upper extremities and usually preceded by a predominantly parasympathetic autonomic neuropathy. The rapid progression and associated dysautonomia mimic Guillain-Barré syndrome but are distinguished by the absence of cerebrospinal fluid albuminocytologic dissociation, progression beyond 4 wk, and associated abdominal pain.

[Compromising due to additive cerclages : Can surgical treatment of humeral shaft fractures cause damage to the radial nerve?]

Unfallchirurg 2021 Mar 24. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Klinik für Unfallchirurgie, Orthopädie, Plastische und Handchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Augsburg, Stenglinstr. 2, 86156, Augsburg, Deutschland.

Background: In many cases the treatment of humeral shaft fractures is challenging and despite the large diversity of available approaches, no standard treatment exists. In addition to conservative treatment, intramedullary nails and plate osteosynthesis are competing methods for healing humeral shaft fractures. Furthermore, cerclage is considered to be an additive treatment for spiral fractures; however, this also increases the risk of radial nerve neuropathy and is said to compromise the perfusion of bone fragments.

Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences and Department of Ophthalmology (JAF), Western University, London, Canada; Department of Ophthalmology (PAS), State University of New York at Stony Brook, Stony Brook, New York; Moorfields Eye Hospital (AP), London, United Kingdom; Department of Neurology (AP), Amsterdam Neuroscience, VUmc MS Center Amsterdam and Dutch Expertise Centre for Neuro-ophthalmology, VU University Medical Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Institute of Neurology (AP), University College London, London, United Kingdom; Department of Eye Pathology (CT), UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, London, United Kingdom; Moorfields Eye Hospital (CT), London, United Kingdom; and Department of Ophthalmology (SH), Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background: With the development and widespread adoption of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), peripapillary hyper-reflective ovoid mass-like structures (PHOMS) have become a frequent OCT finding in neuro-ophthalmic practice. Although originally assumed to represent a form of buried optic disc drusen (ODD), PHOMS differ from ODD in many important ways. The histopathological underpinnings of PHOMS are now becoming more clearly understood. Read More

Hand and Finger Injuries: Chronic Hand and Wrist Pathologies.

FP Essent 2021 Jan;500:33-41

West Virginia University Department of Human Performance, 1 Medical Center Dr, Morgantown, WV 26506.

Common chronic hand pathologies seen by family physicians include carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, and de Quervain tenosynovitis. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common compressive neuropathy of the upper extremity and is caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist. Trigger finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is caused by a metaplasia of the A1 flexor tendon pulley and the flexor tendon causing increased friction and decreased space for tendon gliding in the flexor tendon sheath.

Turk J Ophthalmol 2020 10;50(5):313-316

Ankara University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology, Ankara, Turkey.

Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) is thought to be a neurovascular disease due to presence of vascular changes in asymptomatic patients.
