  • efferent
  • In a larger sample of 41 CRPS patients, signs of sympathetic efferent blockade, including Horner's syndrome or skin surface temperature change, were not predictive of initial peak magnitude of pain relief from sympathetic blockade but were predictive of duration of pain reduction. (ovid.com)
  • cholinergic
  • In the present study the possibiity was explored whether the cells which survive the immunosympathectomy may be predominantly those which have been designated, in the cat, as cholinergic sympathetic cells. (aspetjournals.org)
  • These experimental observations do not support our previous postulate that the small percentage of cells surviving antiserum treatment are those with marked acetylcholinesterase activity, which may be considered the cholinergic sympathetic cells. (aspetjournals.org)
  • Additionally
  • Additionally, phosphodiesterase activity was found to be altered in stellates obtained from the hypertensive rat, suggesting that impaired cyclic nucleotide signalling may contribute to disturbed Ca2+ homeostasis and sympathetic hyperactivity in hypertension. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Additionally, if you suffer from an arterial vascular insufficiency disorder like scleroderma, Raynaud syndrome, an obliterative vascular disease, trauma, or emboli, your doctor may suggest a stellate ganglion block to help alleviate pain. (virginiapain.org)
  • bodies
  • Median locations of T2 and T3 ganglia were 17 to 20 mm dorsal to the ventral surface of the vertebral body and 2 mm rostral to the T1-T2 and T2-T3 vertebral bodies. (umassmed.edu)
  • block
  • Both S and LA injections of sympathetic ganglia produced large reductions in pain intensity in 6 of 7 patients 30 minutes after block. (ovid.com)
  • A stellate ganglion block may be performed to decrease pain and increase the circulation and blood supply to the affected arm. (mycdi.com)
  • If you also suffer from glaucoma, have a low resting heart rate that causes you to feel lightheaded or have other symptoms, recently suffered from a heart attack, or your blood is having trouble clotting appropriately, you are not a candidate for a stellate ganglion block. (virginiapain.org)
  • Image-Guided Stellate Ganglion Block. (virginiapain.org)
  • Observations
  • Observations of the living cell communities with the light microscope indicated that deuteration within viable limits (up to 25 percent) accelerates and increases the growth of sympathetic neurons and favors their repeated subdivision as a very large size is attained, thus inducing them to recapitulate cyclically the early stages of neurogenesis. (sciencemag.org)
  • decrease
  • This decline in SLI content reflects an absolute decrease per ganglion and is not solely due to the growth of tissue devoid of SLI. (jneurosci.org)
  • targets
  • The data described here may provide novel targets for future interventions aimed at treating sympathetic hyperactivity associated with cardiovascular disease and other dysautonomias. (ox.ac.uk)
