A delayed diagnosis that altered the professional orientation of an athlete with upper limb chronic arterial embolization. (2/5)

BACKGROUND: Vascular disorders of the upper extremity in young and physically active patients present a complex and challenging problem for the treating physician. Initial presentation may often be subtle and the consequences of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or mistreatment can be severe. CASE REPORT: In this report, we discuss a case of a young woman with chronic upper limb ischemia due to an arterial thoracic outlet syndrome in whom even though symptoms persisted over a number of years during which she frequently sought medical consultation, remained undiagnosed until finally presenting with limb-threatening ischemia. Furthermore, due to this delay, the patient was forced to withdraw from her professional carrier in athletics. CONCLUSIONS: A thoughtful and through approach combining the history, physical findings, and use of appropriate diagnostic aids will provide the physician and patient with the greatest opportunity for a satisfactory outcome. Furthermore, a delay in definitive treatment may not only cause health deterioration, but may also incur social, economic and occupational consequences.  (+info)

Most people diagnosed with a cervical rib will find their symptoms get better with time, without treatment. Your GP may refer you to a physiotherapist for shoulder exercises designed to stretch and strengthen the neck region and correct any poor posture. The area may be massaged to release any tight or shortened neck tissues. A referral to an occupational therapist may also be useful, for advice on techniques to protect your back and neck while at work.. To relieve any pain and inflammation, your doctor may prescribe you an NSAID painkiller such as naproxen or diclofenac. If you develop thoracic outlet syndrome you may also be prescribed thrombolytic to break up any blood clots, and anticoagulantsto prevent further clots developing. If the above measures dont help and the symptoms persist, you may wish to consider surgical treatment to remove the extra rib, although this is often a last resort.. ...

1. A partially occluded artery may dilate distal to the site of constriction.. 2. The dilation is circumscribed.. 3. When the constriction has been either slight in amount or complete, dilation has not been observed.. 4. The dilation was greatest when the lumen of the artery (the aorta) was reduced to one-third or perhaps one-fourth of its original size (Figs. 8 and 11).. 5. Dilation or aneurysm of the subclavian artery has been observed twenty-seven or more times in cases of cervical rib.. 6. The dilation of the subclavian is circumscribed, is distal to the point of constriction, and strikingly resembles the dilation which we have produced experimentally.. 7. The genesis of the experimental dilation and of the subclavian dilation occurring with cervical rib is probably the same.. 8. When the lumen of the aorta is considerably constricted the systolic pressure may be permanently so lowered and the diastolic pressure so increased that the pulse pressure is greatly diminished.. 9. The ...
Below the skull, the fossil shows a remarkable degree of articulation. The cervical vertebrae, for example, are all but one preserved in their natural pose. Analysis of these vertebrae led Dames to estimate a neck length of 60.5 mm.[75] Later researchers postulated an additional vertebra and a slightly different measurement.[80] This discrepancy is based on differing interpretations of the first two cervical vertebrae.[81] Britt et al. (1998) observed lateral openings in these neck vertebrae and interpreted them as pneumatic foramina, suggesting a modern air sac system.[82] The first eleven or twelve dorsal vertebrae bear ribs and these have a length between 5.5 and 7 mm with large neural spines. A sacral length of around 6.5 is deduced. Dames observed 20 caudal vertebrae; Wellnhofer posits 21.[83] Dames also noted the similarity in the long, rod-like structures of the tail to those in the flying pterosaur Rhamphorhynchus, considering them to be ossified tendons.[75] Thin, pointed cervical ribs ...
Of course, we cant talk about Arambourgiania without mentioning its long, tubular neck skeleton. To appreciate it fully, we should outline some generalities of azhdarchid neck anatomy. Proportionally speaking, azhdarchids have some of the longest necks of any tetrapod, a feat all the more remarkable given several aspects of their head and neck skeleton. While the idea of their necks being made of nothing more than simple, near-featureless tubes is overstated, we cant escape the fact that the majority of the azhdarchid neck skeleton had highly reduced features: no big processes, no elongate cervical ribs, no complicated corporeal geometry. This means they had atypically reduced opportunities for muscle attachment and soft-tissue neck support, and they must have been doing something clever to keep their necks aloft - exactly what that was remains a mystery. Like all pterosaurs, azhdarchids also only had seven true cervicals (cervicals eight and nine are dorsalised) so that their neck length ...

Comments- Discovered in 2005, the partial skeleton LPM B00018 was described as Shenshiornis primita by Hu et al. (2010). They recognized it as a subadult specimen based on cervical ribs unfused to vertebrae, intercentral sutures visible on sacrum, and unfused metatarsals. This is further indicated by the small size, short pubis and perhaps unfused distal caudals. They distinguished it from Sapeornis based on several characters. The prenarial portion of the premaxilla is supposedly shorter, but it is identical to the situation Omnivoropteryx and longer than JZPM-LSV-130. The apparently different proportions in IVPP V13275 and V13276 are due to them being in dorsal view. The left premaxilla of IVPP V13276 also has an elongate subnarial process, suggesting the seemingly short process on the right side and in JZPM-LSV-30 is due to breakage. Premaxillary and maxillary teeth are present in all omnivoropterygids, just as dentary teeth are absent. Didactylornis, IVPP V13275 and JZPM-LSV-30 all have ...

The 6th World Festival of Youth and Students (Russian: Всемирный фестиваль молодёжи и студентов) was opened on 28 July 1957, in Moscow, Soviet Union. The festival attracted 34,000 people from 130 countries. This became possible after the political changes initiated by Nikita Khrushchev. It was the first World Festival of Youth and Students held in the Soviet Union.[1] The Khrushchev reforms, known as Khrushchevs Thaw, resulted in some changes in the Soviet Union. Foreigners could come for a visit, and people were allowed to meet foreigners, albeit only in groups under supervision. Soviet foreign language students acted as interpreters.

A second nearly complete, articulated specimen of the basal troodontid Mei long (DNHM D2154) is reported from the Early Cretaceous (Hauterivian-Valanginian) lower Yixian Formation, Liaoning Province, China. New diagnostic features of Mei long are identified, including: a uniquely shaped maxilla, low with small, low maxillary fenestra; sacrum with an extremely wide caudal portion and elongate 4th and 5th sacral processes; and a large distal articular surface on the tibiotarsus which continues caudally on the tibia. A phylogenetic analysis including new data from the second specimen recovered Mei as a basal troodontid, in keeping with previous analyses. Although the skeleton exhibits several juvenile-like features including free cervical ribs, unfused frontals and nasals, and a short snouted skull, other attributes, full fusion of all neurocentral synostoses and the sacrum, and dense exteriors to cortical bone, suggest a small, mature individual.

Your doctor will usually start by asking you questions about your symptoms and examining you. If they suspect that you may have thoracic outlet syndrome, they may ask you to move your arms and shoulders into certain positions when they examine you. This is to try to bring on (induce) your symptoms. They may then suggest certain tests to look for the underlying cause. Usually, thoracic outlet syndrome is diagnosed after other conditions that can cause pain or pins and needles in one of your arms have been excluded. You may also be referred to a specialist.. A chest X-ray and X-ray of your neck can show if you have a cervical rib. Other tests including an MRI scan or CT scan of your neck and upper chest area may help to rule out other causes for your symptoms. For example, arthritis in your neck may be causing compression of the nerves in your neck. Special tests called nerve conduction studies may sometimes be suggested. These look at the electrical activity of your nerves and can help to show ...

Britt (1993) documented PSP in Rhamphorhynchus and Cretaceous pterodactyloids, noting that in most pterosaur cervical and dorsal vertebrae ovoid pneumatic foramina were present on each side of the centrum or the ventral surface of the neural arch (see also Bonde & Christiansen 2003). The similarities in size and position among the foramina we have documented in Eudimorphodon cf. ranzii, Raeticodactylus filisurensis and Dimorphodon macronyx (figure 1), and those seen in Late Jurassic and Cretaceous pterosaurs (e.g. figure S1, electronic supplementary material), suggests their homology. Britt (1993) additionally documented a large pneumatic foramen on a posterior cervical rib of the Cretaceous pterodactyloid Pteranodon, in a similar position to the pneumatic foramina present in the ribs of sauropods, theropods and birds. The similarly placed and sized foramen we report on an anterior dorsal rib of R. filisurensis is, therefore, probably pneumatic in origin. Our observations suggest that PSP and ...
The vertebra prominens, or C7, has a distinctive long and prominent spinous process, which is palpable from the skin surface. Sometimes, the seventh cervical vertebra is associated with an abnormal extra rib, known as a cervical rib, which develops from the anterior root of the transverse process. These ribs are usually small, but may occasionally compress blood vessels (such as the subclavian artery or subclavian vein) or nerves in the brachial plexus, causing pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the upper limb, a condition known as thoracic outlet syndrome. Very rarely, this rib occurs in a pair. The long spinous process of C7 is thick and nearly horizontal in direction. It is not bifurcated, and ends in a tubercle that the ligamentum nuchae attaches to. This process is not always the most prominent of the spinous processes, being found only about 70% of the time, C6 or T1 can sometimes be the most prominent. The transverse processes are of considerable size; their posterior roots are ...

Symptoms are often initially attributed to other conditions, and can include pain in the neck, shoulder and/or upper arm, chest pain, problems with fine hand and finger movements (string players may report a loss of vibrato quality or fine coordination), aching of the forearm, numb fingers, Raynauds , swelling of the arm, or even ischaemia of the arm in the event of a subclavian artery clot. If not treated effectively, thoracic outlet syndrome can wreck careers and can lead to chronic pain syndromes.. Investigations may include XR of the cervical spine (to exclude cervical ribs), CXR, nerve conduction studies, CT angiography, and MRI of the neck, clavicle and shoulder.. Prompt referral and treatment is required-in the event of neurogenic symptoms, for relief, and in the event of venous or arterial compression for thrombolysis and/or thoracic outlet surgical decompression, which usually requires cervical or first rib removal on the affected side. Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome usually ...

About Sauropods Sauropods are best described as gigantic, long-necked herbivores with long tails and tree-trunk legs. The largest sauropods were over 30 meters (~100 feet) long and may have weighed over 30 metric tons (nearly 60,000 lbs)! Unlike whales, these dinosaurs were land-lubbers, and their skeletons had to resist gravity. Sauropods represent the extreme of…
Amargatitanis macni Apesteguía, 2007 was described as a purported titanosaur sauropod. That referral is significant because Amargatitanis would represent one of the oldest known members of Titanosauria. However, this referral and even the systematic validity of the taxon were questioned. Here, all the available remains of the taxon are evaluated including a description of unpublished elements. The identity of the type material is discussed based on a first-hand examination of the specimens and evaluation of the original field notes as reliable evidence for bone association. The original holotype of Amargatitanis is a chimaera, as pointed out by previous authors. Herein a new, modified holotype for Amargatitanis is proposed. This analysis presents a revised diagnosis for Amargatitanis macni as a valid taxon, and description of unpublished material clarifies the anatomy of this sauropod dinosaur. The inclusion of Amargatitanis macni in an updated phylogenetic analysis revealed the presence of a ...

Whether we assume that a reptile (ectotherm) or mammal/bird (endotherm) equation should be used for a 38 tonne sauropod dinosaur can lead to a difference in estimated gut tissue mass of more than 1670 kg (or 4.4% of the assumed BM). In the case of sauropods, it has been postulated that these animals underwent an ontogenetic shift in their metabolic rate, from juvenile endotherms to adult mass homeotherms (with low metabolic rates; Farlow 1990; ,Sander & Clauss 2008), and the intestinal length is usually considered to reflect metabolic rate (,Williams et al. 2001). For example, owing to the apparent association of intestinal length and metabolism, this view of sauropod metabolism would imply that the growth of intestinal tissue mass was less during ontogeny in sauropods than that in mammals. This view would therefore justify the use of reptile equations for adult sauropods, thus alleviating theoretical constraints on the capacity of the coelomic cavity. ,Gunga et al. (2008) had already ...
Jaws and teeth are particularly important when considering how the sauropod giants managed to obtain sufficient nourishment. Besides the variation in jaw shape discussed above, there is also variation among sauropod species in the shape of the teeth. Some sauropods, such as Brachiosaurus and Camarasaurus, have teeth with spoon-shaped crowns. Others, such as Diplodocus, have teeth that are shaped like pencils. They are little round cylinders. Both of these shapes of sauropod teeth, when multiplied by a mouthful of them, are adequate for plucking and nipping sprigs, twigs, fronds, and leaves, but they are not good for chewing them up. In addition, they are not held very strongly in their sockets, and they were replaced in life at frequent intervals by replacement teeth growing in from the roots. After a sauropod dies, the teeth very quickly fall out. Since neither tooth shape is adequate for a good, thorough chewing of the food, the teeth were used primarily to obtain food. The processing of it ...
Advanced titanosaurian sauropods, such as nemegtosaurids and saltasaurids, were diverse and one of the most important groups of herbivores in the terrestrial biotas of the Late Cretaceous. However, little is known about their rise and diversification prior to the Late Cretaceous. Furthermore, the evolution of their highly-modified skull anatomy has been largely hindered by the scarcity of well-preserved cranial remains. A new sauropod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Brazil represents the earliest advanced titanosaurian known to date, demonstrating that the initial diversification of advanced titanosaurians was well under way at least 30 million years before their known radiation in the latest Cretaceous. The new taxon also preserves the most complete skull among titanosaurians, further revealing that their low and elongated diplodocid-like skull morphology appeared much earlier than previously thought.

Ribs, here is a fashion to make ribs that will fall off the bone everytime.... For the purist, I might be permanently marked as a lunatic (and a crazy one at that).

(The old and only way). They tell me that NO, you cannot make ribs like this with a pressure cooker. And, I tell them; So you basically have to plan this a week in advance at the minimum, hey???. In the Pressure Cooker, it takes way less than 2 hours from the time you decide to make them (if you have fresh ribs in the fridge or at a butcher near you) to enjoying them ...
