Health-related quality of life for early-stage cervical cancer survivors after primary radical surgery followed by radiotherapy versus radical surgery alone.

J Obstet Gynaecol 2021 Sep 23:1-8. Epub 2021 Sep 23.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

This study compared the quality of life (QoL) of 265 stage IA2-IIA cervical cancer patients treated with radical surgery alone (group 1: 137 patients) versus those who underwent primary radical surgery followed by radiotherapy (group 2: 128 patients) and identified clinical characteristics that predict the poor quality of life. All participants completed quality of life questionnaires: EORTC QLQ-C30 and CMU cervical cancer QoL. For the EORTC QLQ-C30, the study groups were comparable regarding global health status/QoL scale and summary scores. Read More

Psychosis associated with suspected SARS-CoV-2 encephalitis with response to steroids: a case report.

Infect Dis (Lond) 2021 Sep 22:1-5. Epub 2021 Sep 22.

Faculty of Medicine, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, Colombia.

Introduction: The SARS-Cov-2 infection has multiple neurologic manifestations including encephalitis in multiple cases reported, however the psychosis as principal manifestation of this condition is infrequently.

Case Report: We report the case of a 48-year-old woman with a confirmed diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 who developed paranoid and self-referential ideas with behavioural alteration and multiple findings on mental examination. Encephalitis associated with Covid-19 was suspected due to the neurological clinical presentation (persistent despite resolve hypoxaemia and systemic symptoms) and brain magnetic resonance image (MRI) that showed asymmetric hippocampal hyperintensities, although cerebrospinal fluid and electroencephalogram (EEG) were normal.

Severe manifestations and treatment of COVID-19 in a transplanted patient with Fabry disease.

Mol Genet Metab Rep 2021 Sep 16:100802. Epub 2021 Sep 16.

Division of Genetics and Genomic Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, University of California, Irvine, CA, USA.

Fabry disease is an X linked disease caused by pathogenic variants in the GLA gene. The cardiovascular and renal systems are most affected in Fabry patients and may require heart or kidney transplants in the late stages of the disease depending on severity of manifestations. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) has proven to delay progression of Fabry disease considerably, especially when started early in life. Read More

Takotsubo Syndrome: Optimizing Care with a Multidisciplinary Approach.

J Multidiscip Healthc 2021 10;14:2487-2499. Epub 2021 Sep 10.

Division of Neurology, Department of Medicine, Showa University School of Medicine, Tokyo, 142-8555, Japan.

The clinical features of TTS, including initial symptoms, cardiac biomarkers, and electrocardiogram (ECG) changes, are similar to those of acute coronary syndrome, with the exception that TTS patients typically have no obstructive coronary artery disease. TTS primarily affects elderly women, and emotional or physical stress is a common cause of the disease. Read More

Grieving as a form of learning: Insights from neuroscience applied to grief and loss.

Curr Opin Psychol 2021 Aug 20;43:317-322. Epub 2021 Aug 20.

Department of Psychiatry, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, United States.

Recent grief research suggests that the influential cognitive stress theory should be updated with evidence from cognitive neuroscience. Combining human and animal neuroscience with attachment theory, we propose that semantic knowledge of the everlasting nature of the attachment figure and episodic, autobiographical memories of the death are in conflict, perhaps explaining the duration of grieving and generating predictions about complications in prolonged grief disorder (PGD). Our gone-but-also-everlasting model emphasizes that grieving may be a form of learning, requiring time and experiential feedback. Read More

Does laparoscopic hysterectomy + bilateral salpingectomy decrease the ovarian reserve more than total abdominal hysterectomy? A cohort study, measuring anti-Müllerian hormone before and after surgery.

BMC Womens Health 2021 Sep 11;21(1):329. Epub 2021 Sep 11.

Community Based Psychiatric Care Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Department of Medical and Surgical Specialities, Faculty of Medicine, 'Transilvania' University of Brasov, 500019 Brasov, Romania.

Genital self-mutilation is a pathology that leads to numerous and important discussions, rarely presented in the medical literature. There have been many attempts to explain the reasons behind these medical phenomena, but single cases have been generally reported, making it extremely difficult to draw valid conclusions. It is acknowledged that there are psychotic and non-psychotic causes, from psychiatric problems and sexual identity disorders to cultural or religious reasons, alcohol or recreational drug consumption, unconventional types of sexual satisfaction or self-satisfaction.
