The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Conserved requirement for EGF-CFC genes in vertebrate left-right axis formation. (1/149)

Specification of the left-right (L-R) axis in the vertebrate embryo requires transfer of positional information from the node to the periphery, resulting in asymmetric gene expression in the lateral plate mesoderm. We show that this activation of L-R lateral asymmetry requires the evolutionarily conserved activity of members of the EGF-CFC family of extracellular factors. Targeted disruption of murine Cryptic results in L-R laterality defects including randomization of abdominal situs, hyposplenia, and pulmonary right isomerism, as well as randomized embryo turning and cardiac looping. Similarly, zebrafish one-eyed pinhead (oep) mutants that have been rescued partially by mRNA injection display heterotaxia, including randomization of heart looping and pancreas location. In both Cryptic and oep mutant embryos, L-R asymmetric expression of Nodal/cyclops, Lefty2/antivin, and Pitx2 does not occur in the lateral plate mesoderm, while in Cryptic mutants Lefty1 expression is absent from the prospective floor plate. Notably, L-R asymmetric expression of Nodal at the lateral edges of the node is still observed in Cryptic mutants, indicating that L-R specification has occurred in the node but not the lateral plate. Combined with the previous finding that oep is required for nodal signaling in zebrafish, we propose that a signaling pathway mediated by Nodal and EGF-CFC activities is essential for transfer of L-R positional information from the node.  (+info)

Pattern formation and regulation of gene expressions in chick recombinant limbs. (2/149)

Recombinant limbs were performed by ensembling dissociated-reaggregated wing bud mesoderm inside an ectodermal hull. The zone of polarizing activity was excluded from the mesoderm used to perform the recombinant limbs (non-polarized recombinants), and grafted when desired (polarized recombinants). Reorganization of patterning progressively occurred in the newly formed progress zone under the influence of the apical ectodermal ridge (AER), explaining the proximo-distal gradient of morphogenesis observed in developed recombinant limbs. The AER, without the influence of the polarizing region (ZPA), was sufficient to direct outgrowth and appropriate proximo-distal patterning, as observed in the expression of the Hoxa-11 and Hoxa-13 genes. The development of the recombinant limbs coursed with symmetric AER and downregulation of Bmp expression in the mesoderm supporting a negative effect of Bmp signaling upon the apical ridge. The recombinant ectoderm maintained previously established compartments of gene expressions and organized a correct dorso-ventral patterning in the recombinant progress zone. Finally, the ZPA effect was only detected on Bmp expression and pattern formation along the antero-posterior axis.  (+info)

Left-right development: the roles of nodal cilia. (3/149)

Cilia on the ventral side of the mouse node have been implicated in initiating the left-right axis during embryonic development, but how cilia relate to other factors in the left-right pathway and the mechanism by which cilia convey patterning information remain uncertain.  (+info)

Surface ectoderm is necessary for the morphogenesis of somites. (4/149)

The paraxial mesoderm of the neck and trunk of mouse embryos undergoes extensive morphogenesis in forming somites. Paraxial mesoderm is divided into segments, it elongates along its anterior posterior axis, and its cells organize into epithelia. Experiments were performed to determine if these processes are autonomous to the mesoderm that gives rise to the somites. Presomitic mesoderm at the tailbud stage was cultured in the presence and absence of its adjacent tissues. Somite segmentation occurred in the absence of neural tube, notochord, gut and surface ectoderm, and occurred in posterior fragments in the absence of anterior presomitic mesoderm. Mesodermal expression of Dll1 and Notch1, genes with roles in segmentation, was largely independent of other tissues, consistent with autonomous segmentation. However, surface ectoderm was found to be necessary for elongation of the mesoderm along the anterior-posterior axis and for somite epithelialization. To determine if there is specificity in the interaction between ectoderm and mesoderm, ectoderm from different sources was recombined with presomitic mesoderm. Surface ectoderm from only certain parts of the embryo supported somite epithelialization and elongation. Somite epithelialization induced by ectoderm was correlated with expression of the basic-helix-loop-helix gene Paraxis in the mesoderm. This is consistent with the genetically defined requirement for Paraxis in somite epithelialization. However, trunk ectoderm was able to induce somite epithelialization in the absence of strong Paraxis expression. We conclude that somitogenesis consists of autonomous segmentation patterned by Notch signaling and nonautonomous induction of elongation and epithelialization by surface ectoderm.  (+info)

Regulatory gene expression patterns reveal transverse and longitudinal subdivisions of the embryonic zebrafish forebrain. (5/149)

To shed light on the organization of the rostral embryonic brain of a lower vertebrate, we have directly compared the expression patterns of dlx, fgf, hh, hlx, otx, pax, POU, winged helix and wnt gene family members in the fore- and midbrain of the zebrafish. We show that the analyzed genes are expressed in distinct transverse and longitudinal domains and share expression boundaries at stereotypic positions within the fore- and midbrain. Some of these shared expression boundaries coincide with morphological landmarks like the pathways of primary axon tracts. We identified a series of eight transverse diencephalic domains suggestive of neuromeric subdivisions within the rostral brain. In addition, we identified four molecularly distinct longitudinal subdivisions and provide evidence for a strong bending of the longitudinal rostral brain axis at the cephalic flexure. Our data suggest a strong conservation of early forebrain organization between lower and higher vertebrates.  (+info)

BMP-4 affects the differentiation of metanephric mesenchyme and reveals an early anterior-posterior axis of the embryonic kidney. (6/149)

Bone morphogenetic protein-4 (BMP4), a member of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) family, regulates several developmental processes during animal development. We have now studied the effects of BMP-4 in the metanephric kidney differentiation by using organ culture technique. Human recombinant BMP-4 diminishes the number of ureteric branches and changes the branching pattern. Our data suggest that BMP-4 affects the ureteric branching indirectly via interfering with the differentiation of the nephrogenic mesenchyme. The clear positional preference of the defects to posterior mesenchyme might reflect an early anterior-posterior patterning of the metanephric mesenchyme. The smooth muscle alpha-actin expressing cell population around the ureteric stalk, highly expressing Bmp-4 mRNA, is also expanded in kidneys treated with BMP-4. Thus, BMP-4 may be a physiological regulator of the development of the periureteric smooth muscle layer and ureteric elongation.  (+info)

Anteroposterior patterning is required within segments for somite boundary formation in developing zebrafish. (7/149)

Somite formation involves the establishment of a segmental prepattern in the presomitic mesoderm, anteroposterior patterning of each segmental primordium and formation of boundaries between adjacent segments. How these events are co-ordinated remains uncertain. In this study, analysis of expression of zebrafish mesp-a reveals that each segment acquires anteroposterior regionalisation when located in the anterior presomitic mesoderm. Thus anteroposterior patterning is occurring after the establishment of a segmental prepattern in the paraxial mesoderm and prior to somite boundary formation. Zebrafish fss(-), bea(-), des(-) and aei(-) embryos all fail to form somites, yet we demonstrate that a segmental prepattern is established in the presomitic mesoderm of all these mutants and hox gene expression shows that overall anteroposterior patterning of the mesoderm is also normal. However, analysis of various molecular markers reveals that anteroposterior regionalisation within each segment is disturbed in the mutants. In fss(-), there is a loss of anterior segment markers, such that all segments appear posteriorized, whereas in bea(-), des(-) and aei(-), anterior and posterior markers are expressed throughout each segment. Since somite formation is disrupted in these mutants, correct anteroposterior patterning within segments may be a prerequisite for somite boundary formation. In support of this hypothesis, we show that it is possible to rescue boundary formation in fss(-) through the ectopic expression of EphA4, an anterior segment marker, in the paraxial mesoderm. These observations indicate that a key consequence of the anteroposterior regionalisation of segments may be the induction of Eph and ephrin expression at segment interfaces and that Eph/ephrin signalling subsequently contributes to the formation of somite boundaries.  (+info)

Dorsoventral axis determination in the somite: a re-examination. (8/149)

We have repeated classic dorsoventral somite rotation experiments (Aoyama and Asamoto, 1988, Development 104, 15-28) and included dorsal and ventral gene expression markers for the somitogenic tissue types, myotome and sclerotome, respectively. While the histological results are consistent with those previously published, gene expression analysis indicates that cells previously thought to be 'sclerotome' no longer express Pax1 mRNA, a sclerotome marker. These results, together with recent quail-chick transplantation experiments indicating that even very late sclerotome tissue fragments are multipotential (Dockter and Ordahl, 1998, Development 125, 2113-2124), lead to the conclusion that sclerotome tissue remains phenotypically and morphogenetically plastic during early embryonic somitogenesis. Myotome precursor cells, by contrast, appear to be determined within hours after somite epithelization; a finding consistent with recent reports (Williams and Ordahl, 1997, Development 124, 4983-4997). Therefore, while these findings support a central conclusion of Aoyama and Asamoto, that axis determination begins to occur within hours after somite epithelialization, the identity of the responding tissues, myotome versus sclerotome, differs. A simple model proposed to reconcile these observations supports the general hypothesis that determinative aspects of early paraxial mesoderm growth and morphogenesis occur in early and late phases that are governed principally by the myotome and sclerotome, respectively.  (+info)

Neurological symptoms following the use of potent antiplatelet agents and anticoagulants during PCI always raise the frightening possibility of a major intracranial haemorrhage. The purpose of this report is to emphasise that the importance of excluding intracranial haemorrhage as a cause for the neurological symptoms after PCI far exceeds that after angiography, as inappropriate withdrawal or continuation of the antiplatelet agents could both result in serious consequences for the patient. The fact that the appearance of the CT scan raised a suspicion of an intracranial bleed makes the differentiation all the more important as an opinion of a specialist neuroradiologist may not be available out-of-hours. And, radiology is possibly the only investigation available as lumbar puncture for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) xanthochromia is contraindicated in these patients. The anatomical location of any bleeding is less important.. In the clinical scenario presented, intracranial bleeding needed to be ...
A major retrospective of late 80s psychedelic garage rockers Hangmans Beautiful Daughters. A mainstay of the indie and C86 scene, the London-based band were signed to Dan Treacys Dreamworld Records. Treacy, the genius behind The Television Personalities, played a major role in the bands birth, contributing a few songs and as producer. They all looked dead cool: Gordon played chiming 12-string guitar licks which sounded like a dirty version of Roger McGuinns sound with the Byrds, with his long blond fringe making him look like a tougher cousin of Brian Jones. Emily [Brown] had a sensuous, husky alto voice, and looked fine with her long wavy auburn locks, suede fringed boots and mini-skirts. Phil [King] was taciturn and nonchalant; impenetrable with his shades and dark bowl-haircut and like a cuter version of Bill Wyman. Ray [Philpott] was an accomplished, energetic and handsome drummer with a ready grin and long parted wavy chestnut hair. Sandy [Fleming] was an exuberant presence, with her ...

History: Individuals report pain as well as tingling and numbness (paresthesia) in the neck, shoulder, arm, and hand, or in all four locations. In neurogenic TOS, hand pain can be severe in the fourth and fifth fingers. Individuals may report that the pain is aggravated by use of the arm, and fatigue of the arm is often marked. Pain and paresthesia may be enough to awaken individuals from sleep. Other symptoms may include recurrent headaches, particularly in the back of the head (occipital headaches), and neck pain. Individuals experiencing venous TOS may also report swelling of the arm, a bluish tinge to the skin (cyanosis), and coldness of the affected arm and hand. Arterial TOS often is not detected until migration of a blood clot obstructs an artery (thromboembolic event). Some individuals may report a history of neck trauma preceding symptoms, usually from a motor vehicle accident or repetitive work activity.. Physical exam: True neurogenic and vascular TOS are uncommon, and such a ...

Hi Nancyapplg8, I have a double curve scoliosis discovered at 13. In 1978, I had Harrington rod surgery to stabilize things. In 1996, because of more pain, I had a single fusion, then single fusions every year for 5 years. Then in 2003, the doctor fused remaining vertibra, so I am totally fused to middle of my neck. Then in 2010, I fell out of bathtub and broke my C2, a hangmans fracture, so now I am really totally fused! All this to say even tho I have chronic pain between my shoulder blades and my entire neck, I am glad I had the surgerys done, because I would be in even worse shape if I had done nothing. My lungs and heart would be involved because of the top curve twisting too. The only advise I can give is to find a doctor with a lots of experience, cause their patients have better outcomes. And expect there to still be pain. Be as active as possible after you heal. I am pretty sedentary and so part of my pain is of my own doing. I am 68 years old, and go regularly to a pain clinic.

Headsman On this date in 1908, John Boyd managed six fitful hours of sleep, had a breakfast of toast, poached eggs and tea, and then went to the Don Jail gallows for murdering his paramours rival suitor.. Canada had long before ceased public executions. Prior to Boyds execution, Don Jail hangings had occurred in a jail yard - technically behind prison walls, but easily peeped upon by curiosity-seekers willing to obtain higher ground. Boyds execution introduced a new privacy measure: it was the first of 26 hangings to occur in an interior chamber completely away from public eyes, the same place where Canada eventually held its last hangings in 1962.. But apart from this minor milestone, we notice on this date the hurried and disturbed departure of prolific hangman John Radclive. Another poor soul gone, he was overheard to say as he left..

Traumatic injuries of the upper cervical spine are often encountered, and may be associated to severe neurological outcome. This is a retrospective study of 70 patients, admitted over a 14 years period (1996 to 2010), for management of upper cervical spine injuries. Data concerning epidemiology, radiopathology and treatment was reviewed, and clinical and radiological evaluation was conducted. Men are more affected than women, with traffic accidents being the major traumatic cause. A cervical spine syndrome of varied intensity was found in about 90% of patients; neurological deficit was noted in 10 patients (21%). Radiological analysis discovered varied and many combined lesions: C1-C2 dislocation (7 cases), C2-C3 dislocation (9 cases), C1 fracture (10 cases) and C2 fracture (44 cases) including 28 odontoid fractures. Orthopedic treatment was carried out exclusively for 31 patients, and surgical treatment for 38 patients. One patient died before surgery because of a polytraumatisme. Posterior approach

The application of laminar screws is an alternative fixation for the first thoracic vertebra (T1). This paper is to determine the anatomical characteristics for adequate laminar screw fixation, and present a modified method of sagittal reconstruction of T1 to provide more accurate measurements. Computed tomography (CT) images of 62 patients (32 males, 30 females) were used for the analysis. The following parameters of the T-1 lamina were measured using Mimics software: lamina length, axis angle, minimal outer cortical width, cancellous width, minimal outer cortical height, cancellous height, and spinous process height. Right or left modified sagittal reconstructions (parallel to right or left screws) were innovatively used for measurement. There were no significant differences between the left and right sides for each measurement performed (P | 0.05), but significant differences were detected between males and females (P | 0.05). The mean length of the T1 lamina was 32.8 mm of the T1 minimal outer
As mentioned earlier, fibromyalgia may result from an upper cervical misalignment. The upper cervical spine refers to the two top bones of the neck-the atlas and axis vertebrae. These bones shield the brainstem, which serves as a passageway of signals between the body and the brain.. A misalignment in these bones, which can happen commonly and quickly, may put excess tension on the brainstem, resulting in a mix-up of the signals in the brain and body. All these can bring on fibromyalgia. Upper cervical chiropractic care has the means and method to correct this misalignment.. Here at Southern Spinal Care, we thoroughly assess any neck misalignments to determine if it is the leading cause of your pain. Then, we create custom-made adjustment procedures to realign the neck to its proper position ...

This is one of many cross sections from a CT (computed tomography) scan in a person who sustained a severe fracture of C2 (second cervical vertebrae). Bone in this CT image is the white density in the middle of the image. The fracture of C2 is seen as a disruption of this white density. - Stock Image M330/1254
From this, you can easily duplicate my algorithm by determining which letter to choose based on which word appears in the most candidate words (highest probability of being right) and break ties by using the highest overall density. You should however be able to do so much more. There are a couple of main approaches that I can think of. First, a 1 size fits all algorithm that weighs various different pieces of data to produce an overall score. The advantage here is that you should be able to tune these weights without touching code to produce the best results for a given dictionary. The second approach would be to have multiple algorithms already fine tuned for a given set of conditions and dispatch to that algorithm based on initial conditions. For instance, it may be ok to take a risk of guessing wrong if the remaining wrong guesses is still high or perhaps utilize the simple algorithm already presented unless the probabilities and candidates remaining (if right or wrong) is beyond some ...
BATON ROUGE -- Trying to intimidate someone with a hangmans noose, a symbol of racial lynchings in the Old South, will be a crime in Louisiana if Gov. Bobby Jindal goes along with legislation unanimously passed by the House and Senate. House Bill 726 by Rep. Rickey Hardy, D-Lafayette, will make it a crime for a person to place a hangmans noose, or a picture of one, on another persons property or on public property with the intent to intimidate. Conviction could bring fines up to $5,000 and up to a year in prison. A 37-0 vote in the Senate late Monday, following a 97-0 House vote earlier in the legislative session, sent the measure to Jindal for his signature. His office did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment on the bill, which is modeled after an existing law outlawing cross burning. There was little discussion in either chamber but Hardy, during a committee hearing on the bill in May, noted the nooses history as a symbol of racial lynchings. - The ...

Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis (nr-AxSpA) is a different kind of inflammatory arthritis. It falls under an umbrella category of diseases called spondyloarthritis, which includes different types of arthritis with one distinguishing feature. There is almost always inflammation in the spine.. Back pain is the hallmark of Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis, which sets it apart from any other type of inflammatory arthritis. Non-radiographic means the disease causes symptoms, but there is no visible damage on X-rays, the way there is with a related type of inflammatory arthritis called ankylosing spondylitis.. DelveInsights Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis (nr-AxSpA) Market Report 2030 delivers an in-depth understanding of the Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis (nr-AxSpA), historical and forecasted epidemiology as well as the Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis (nr-AxSpA) market trends in the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and United ...

Here, we identify population-based studies in AS and nr-axSpA, and describe the methodologic challenges in conducting these, outlining potential reasons for disparate incidence and prevalence estimates. Methods PubMed and Embase were searched for population-based studies providing incidence and prevalence rates, published in English from 1 Jan 2000-30 Jun 2015. Extracted information included incidence/prevalence rates, geographical population, study design, data source, case ...
In the present study, we investigated bone geometry, microstructure, and volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) in a cohort of patients with nonradiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) in order to define the early bone changes occurring in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and to define potential factors for deterioration of bone microstructure. Patients with axSpA (n = 107) and healthy control subjects (n = 50) of similar age and sex were assessed for geometric, volumetric, and microstructural parameters of bone using high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) at the radius. Additionally, demographic and disease-specific characteristics of patients with axSpA were recorded. Patients with nr-axSpA and control subjects were comparable in age, sex, and body mass index. Geometric and microstructural analysis by HR-pQCT revealed a significantly reduced cortical area (p = 0.022) and cortical thickness (p = 0.006) in patients with nr-axSpA compared with control subjects.

This is the first case report of a traumatic odontoid process synchondrosis fracture in a calf. Neurological examination was useful for early and correct neuroanatomical localisation. Radiography was easy to perform and allowed an initial diagnosis. MRI and CT examination (although performed post-mortem for scientific interest) were helpful for sub-classifying the fracture type, excluding additional (traumatic or congenital) cervical lesions and, potentially, allowing better planning of potential surgical interventions. However, as evident in our case, transportation to the advanced diagnostic imaging site incurred the risk of further displacement and neurological deterioration, suggesting that the benefits versus risks of any procedure and transport should be carefully considered.. So far, detailed classification systems of atlantoaxial fractures are lacking in veterinary medicine. In humans, several classification systems for odontoid process fractures have been established but are still a ...

Following the chiropractic upper cervical spine adjustment, in July 2016, Jim McMahon was participating in the Tahoe South Celebrity-Am golf event when a Sacramento Bee sports reporter caught up with him for a story (6). The interview mentions that McMahon was one of the original plaintiffs in the concussion lawsuit that former players filed against the NFL. When questioned about his pain, fatigue, and brain function, McMahon replied:. Ive got my good days and bad. As long as I keep my neck and head in alignment, Im fairly normal.. The article notes that McMahon visits a chiropractor in New York every two or three months to keep everything lined up, stating:. It keeps the spinal fluid flowing properly.

Advanced Nondestructive Evaluation I: Moment Prediction for Evaluating Stability of the Upper Cervical Spine Fixed with Wires Using Finite Element Analysis
orthosis, 2 with a Minerva brace, and 1 with a halo. Two patients required cervical surgery; an occipital cervical fusion for a type 2 odontoid fracture and one atlantoaxial fusion for atlantoaxial instability was performed. At the follow up appointments, none of the patients were found to have delayed instability based on clinical examination, upright x-rays or flexion-extension x-rays. Conclusion: All isolated OCF are likely stable injuries. Our data suggests all isolated OCF may be treated conservatively with any type of cervical orthosis and minimal follow up. ...

ABSTRACT. Extradural vertebral artery dissection is a condition with a generally good prognosis if it is promptly recognized and treated. Diagnosis and consequently therapy delay may cause extensive ischemia with catastrophic consequences, due to embolism from the thrombus in the vessel wall or its extension. Considering these aspects and also its low incidence, the identification and treatment of this condition must be immediate, all the more, so as its onset is deceitful by occipital headache and neck pain. The association between vertebral artery dissection and dental procedures has been previously noticed. This paper aims to describe the etiopathogenesis and clinical recognition of dental chair vertebral artery dissection for a prompt neurosurgical intervention, in order to have a good prognosis. ...
Head pain at base of skull - Daily occipital headaches, pulse in head, pain at base of skull rt side, muffled hearing, dizzy looking. Causes Headaches. The cause of the headaches are variable. Inflammation if the occipital nerve, a pinched nerve in the cervical spine, TMJ disorder, and mastoiditis are leading contenders. See a headache expert to determine the type of headache and to develop a course of treatment.
As with the two above, Id be more worried about the neck, and more specifically damage to the vertebral artery. From that article: The typical presentation of vertebral artery dissection (VAD) is a young person with severe occipital headache and posterior nuchal pain following a recent, relatively minor, head or neck injury. The trauma is generally from a trivial mechanism but is associated with some degree of cervical distortion ...
A 43-year-old man presented with acute-onset hemianesthesia involving the right arm, the right leg, and the right side of the face. Six weeks earlier, he had a moderate occipital headache that lasted for 3 days. Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain showed a thalamic lesion of restricted diffusion on the left side (Panel A, arrow), which was consistent with acute posterior choroidal-artery infarction. T2-weighted MRI scans, a magnetic resonance angiogram, and a computed tomographic angiogram (Panels B, C, and D, respectively) revealed a dilatation of the left posterior cerebral artery, with a double lumen - that is, a true circulating lumen (Panels B, C, and D, lower arrows) and a false noncirculating lumen (Panels B, C, and D, upper arrows), divided by an intimal flap (Panel B, arrowheads), suggesting a dissecting aneurysm. Angiography confirmed an aneurysm of the posterior cerebral artery (Panel E, arrows). The patient reported no specific risk factor (e.g., trauma) ...

NTOS is induced by compression of the BP in any of 3 parts of the superior thoracic outlet: the interscalene triangle, costoclavicular space, or retropectoralis minor space.7 Paresthesia is the most common symptom,3 mostly evident in the ring and little finger.5,7 Pain is usually distributed in the shoulder region and radiates along the inner aspect of the arm. In severe cases, there may be atrophy of the thenar eminence, ulnar intrinsic hand musculature, and forearm muscles.10 Patients may present with symptoms of upper plexus compression (C5-C7), like pain on the ipsilateral aspect of the neck or mastoid area or even occipital headaches.6,7 Pain may also radiate to the deltoid region, trapezius, and the rhomboid muscles; the upper pectoral region; and down the lateral aspect of the arm. In most cases, however, patients present with involvement of the lower plexus (C8-T1). Symptoms are usually aggravated by continuous elevation of the arm.5,7,13 However, because 99% of patients with NTOS lack ...
Introduction: Spinal Koch involving posterior elements of the neural arch is one of the atypical presentations which are often missed. Case presentation: A 40-year-old female presented with radiculopathy and bilateral lower limb claudication for 5 months. Radiological investigations showed compressive lesion resembling flavum hypertrophy and a degenerative etiology was thus suspected. However, histopathology report pointed toward tuberculosis (TB) of the posterior elements (atypical form). Management with surgical decompression and anti-Koch treatment gave a successful outcome. Conclusion: TB affecting posterior elements of spine is a rare entity and needs a high degree of suspicion for accurate diagnosis. Newer radiological interventions such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging along with histopathological evidence will help to clinch the diagnosis of Kochs spine early before neurological problems or deformity sets in. Keeping a high index of suspicion will help to avoid missing the
Non-radiographic axial Spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) is an autoimmune disease which causes arthritis in the spine and pelvis. While non-radiographic axial Spondyloarthritis is a very complicated name, it can be understood as: Non-radiographic: the inflammation will not show up on an x-ray (radiograph) but may show up on an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan. Axial: it mainly affects the spine (rather than arms or legs). Spondyloarthritis: arthritis that affects the joints as well as sites where ligaments and tendons join the bone..

Of all the occupations one might chose to follow, perhaps the strangest is that of executioner. What is it that might set you on that career path? Perhaps too many games of hangman as a child.. But when you look at the characteristics of the people who have become the states executioners, what is striking is their otherwise everyday ordinariness and one such was John Ellis.. The son of a hairdresser, Ellis was born in the northern town of Rochdale in 1874 and lived a typically northern life of the time in that he worked in the Eagle cotton mill, kept whippets and enjoyed watching the Rochdale Harriers play rugby league football.. There was nothing in his background to suggest why he should have applied for the post of one of Englands hangmen in 1901, but the towns chief constable vouched that he was a man of good character and he was appointed assistant hangman in 1902.. As previously mentioned, there was little to distinguish Ellis, one newspaper saying that he never looked like what he ...

Repatriation of some Japanese POWs was delayed by Allied authorities. Until late 1946, the United States retained almost 70,000 POWs to dismantle military facilities in the Philippines, Okinawa, central Pacific, and Hawaii. British authorities retained 113,500 of the approximately 750,000 POWs in south and south-east Asia until 1947; the last POWs captured in Burma and Malaya returned to Japan in October 1947.[76] The British also used armed Japanese Surrendered Personnel to support Dutch and French attempts to reassert control in the Dutch East Indies and Indochina respectively.[77] At least 81,090 Japanese personnel died in areas occupied by the western Allies and China before they could be repatriated to Japan. Historian John W.

It has been argued that the granting of rights to women played an important role in the radical shift Japan underwent from a war nation to a democratized and demilitarized country.[85] In the first postwar general elections of 1946, over a third of the votes were cast by women. This unexpectedly high female voter turnout led to the election of 39 female candidates, and the increasing presence of women in politics was perceived by Americans as evidence of an improvement of Japanese women's condition.[86] American feminists saw Japanese women as victims of feudalistic and chauvinistic traditions that had to be broken by the Occupation. American women assumed a central role in the reforms that affected the lives of Japanese women: they educated Japanese about Western ideals of democracy, and it was an American woman, Beate Sirota, who wrote the articles guaranteeing equality between men and women for the new constitution.[87] General Douglas MacArthur did not mean for Japanese women to give up ...
