Perioperative Transgender Hormone Management: Avoiding Venous Thromboembolism and Other Complications.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Apr;147(4):1008-1017

From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Rush University Medical Center; the Department of Pediatrics, New York University Langone Medical Center; Chase Brexton Health Care; the Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; and the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Summary: This review discusses the current evidence regarding perioperative hormone therapy for transgender individuals, with an emphasis on strategies to reduce the risk of perioperative venous thromboembolism. Historically, surgeons routinely discontinued estrogen therapy in the perioperative period with the goal of reducing the risk of venous thromboembolism. However, abrupt estrogen cessation may also lead to adverse emotional and physiologic effects, including an exacerbation of one's gender dysphoria. Read More

Higher Right Hemisphere Gamma Band Lateralization and Suggestion of a Sensitive Period for Vocal Auditory Emotional Stimuli Recognition in Unilateral Cochlear Implant Children: An EEG Study.

Front Neurosci 2021 9;15:608156. Epub 2021 Mar 9.

Laboratory of Industrial Neuroscience, Department of Molecular Medicine, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

In deaf children, huge emphasis was given to language; however, emotional cues decoding and production appear of pivotal importance for communication capabilities. Concerning neurophysiological correlates of emotional processing, the gamma band activity appears a useful tool adopted for emotion classification and related to the conscious elaboration of emotions. Starting from these considerations, the following items have been investigated: (i) whether emotional auditory stimuli processing differs between normal-hearing (NH) children and children using a cochlear implant (CI), given the non-physiological development of the auditory system in the latter group; (ii) whether the age at CI surgery influences emotion recognition capabilities; and (iii) in light of the right hemisphere hypothesis for emotional processing, whether the CI side influences the processing of emotional cues in unilateral CI (UCI) children.

Reliability of additional reported seizure manifestations to identify dissociative seizures.

Epilepsy Behav 2021 Feb 1;115:107696. Epub 2021 Jan 1.

Department of Neurology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Purpose: Descriptions of seizure manifestations (SM), or semiology, can help localize the symptomatogenic zone and subsequently included brain regions involved in epileptic seizures, as well as identify patients with dissociative seizures (DS). Patients and witnesses are not trained observers, so these descriptions may vary from expert review of seizure video recordings of seizures. To better understand how reported factors can help identify patients with DS or epileptic seizures (ES), we evaluated the associations between more than 30 SMs and diagnosis using standardized interviews.

Emotional Deprivation in Children: Growth Faltering and Hypopituitarism.

Alan David Rogol

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2020 7;11:596144. Epub 2020 Oct 7.

Department of Pediatrics, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, United States.

Emotional deprivation can lead to growth faltering of infants and children. The mechanism(s) involved differ in that for infants, the major metabolic problem is inadequate energy intake for growth. In young children, it is likely that the emotional deprivation causes a syndrome not only of growth faltering, but with bizarre behaviors, especially with regard to food: hoarding, gorging and vomiting, hyperphagia, drinking from the toilet, and eating from garbage pails.

Harry G Mond

Heart Lung Circ 2021 Feb 5;30(2):225-232. Epub 2020 Oct 5.

Department of Cardiology, The Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Department of Medicine, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Vic, Australia. Electronic address:

With the recognised physiologic value of dual chamber pacing, there was, at the commencement of the 1980s, an intense search for sensors to enable ventricular pacemakers to alter the pulse repetition rate in response to physiologic demand. Manufacturers fell into two main groups; those who chose highly physiologic sensors often requiring special pacing leads and those whose sensors allowed a standard pacing lead. Thirteen (13) sensors for rate adaptive pacing progressed at least to human investigational studies. Read More

Physiological Signal Monitoring for Identification of Emotional Dysregulation in Children.

Annu Int Conf IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc 2020 07;2020:4273-4277

Children, particularly those with atypical or delayed development, have a reduced ability to self-regulate their emotions and behaviour. After a number of anxiety or stress provoking events, this reduced regulatory ability can result in a meltdown. Extrinsic signals of an impending meltdown are often recognised and acted on by clinicians or parents. Read More

Two cases of exploding head syndrome documented by polysomnography that improved after treatment.

J Clin Sleep Med 2021 Jan;17(1):103-106

Department of Otolaryngology, Nara Medical University, Kashihara, Japan.

None: Exploding head syndrome is a rare sleep disorder, characterized by an explosive feeling in the head, that occurs during the sleep-wake transition. Usually the attacks are painless, but the fear caused by the attack can result in awakening and insomnia when it is generated frequently. It has been suspected that exploding head syndrome is related to emotional stress, because most patients report stressful life situations in periods when attacks are intense and frequent. Read More
