Trauma, Nervous System: Traumatic injuries to the brain, cranial nerves, spinal cord, autonomic nervous system, or neuromuscular system, including iatrogenic injuries induced by surgical procedures.Central Nervous System: The main information-processing organs of the nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges.Horner Syndrome: A syndrome associated with defective sympathetic innervation to one side of the face, including the eye. Clinical features include MIOSIS; mild BLEPHAROPTOSIS; and hemifacial ANHIDROSIS (decreased sweating)(see HYPOHIDROSIS). Lesions of the BRAIN STEM; cervical SPINAL CORD; first thoracic nerve root; apex of the LUNG; CAROTID ARTERY; CAVERNOUS SINUS; and apex of the ORBIT may cause this condition. (From Miller et al., Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, pp500-11)Autonomic Nervous System: The ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; and SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM taken together. Generally speaking, the autonomic nervous system regulates the internal environment during both peaceful activity and physical or emotional stress. Autonomic activity is controlled and integrated by the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, especially the HYPOTHALAMUS and the SOLITARY NUCLEUS, which receive information relayed from VISCERAL AFFERENTS.Sympathetic Nervous System: The thoracolumbar division of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic preganglionic fibers originate in neurons of the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord and project to the paravertebral and prevertebral ganglia, which in turn project to target organs. The sympathetic nervous system mediates the body's response to stressful situations, i.e., the fight or flight reactions. It often acts reciprocally to the parasympathetic system.Physical Examination: Systematic and thorough inspection of the patient for physical signs of disease or abnormality.Medical History Taking: Acquiring information from a patient on past medical conditions and treatments.Autonomic Nervous System Diseases: Diseases of the parasympathetic or sympathetic divisions of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; which has components located in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Autonomic dysfunction may be associated with HYPOTHALAMIC DISEASES; BRAIN STEM disorders; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES. Manifestations include impairments of vegetative functions including the maintenance of BLOOD PRESSURE; HEART RATE; pupil function; SWEATING; REPRODUCTIVE AND URINARY PHYSIOLOGY; and DIGESTION.Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity: A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)Shoulder Pain: Unilateral or bilateral pain of the shoulder. It is often caused by physical activities such as work or sports participation, but may also be pathologic in origin.Spinal Cord Injuries: Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).Neuralgia: Intense or aching pain that occurs along the course or distribution of a peripheral or cranial nerve.Shoulder Joint: The articulation between the head of the HUMERUS and the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA.Shoulder: Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.Pain Measurement: Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.Rotator Cuff: The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.Infrared Rays: That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplantation: Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).Cognition Disorders: Disturbances in mental processes related to learning, thinking, reasoning, and judgment.Dementia: An acquired organic mental disorder with loss of intellectual abilities of sufficient severity to interfere with social or occupational functioning. The dysfunction is multifaceted and involves memory, behavior, personality, judgment, attention, spatial relations, language, abstract thought, and other executive functions. The intellectual decline is usually progressive, and initially spares the level of consciousness.Mild Cognitive Impairment: A prodromal phase of cognitive decline that may precede the emergence of ALZHEIMER DISEASE and other dementias. It may include impairment of cognition, such as impairments in language, visuospatial awareness, ATTENTION and MEMORY.Alzheimer Disease: A degenerative disease of the BRAIN characterized by the insidious onset of DEMENTIA. Impairment of MEMORY, judgment, attention span, and problem solving skills are followed by severe APRAXIAS and a global loss of cognitive abilities. The condition primarily occurs after age 60, and is marked pathologically by severe cortical atrophy and the triad of SENILE PLAQUES; NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES; and NEUROPIL THREADS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1049-57)Phototherapy: Treatment of disease by exposure to light, especially by variously concentrated light rays or specific wavelengths.Child Advocacy: Promotion and protection of the rights of children; frequently through a legal process.Lawyers: Persons whose profession is to give legal advice and assistance to clients and represent them in legal matters. (American Heritage Dictionary, 3d ed)Patient Advocacy: Promotion and protection of the rights of patients, frequently through a legal process.Child Abuse: Abuse of children in a family, institutional, or other setting. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)Jurisprudence: The science or philosophy of law. Also, the application of the principles of law and justice to health and medicine.Judicial Role: The kind of action or activity proper to the judiciary, particularly its responsibility for decision making.Expert Testimony: Presentation of pertinent data by one with special skill or knowledge representing mastery of a particular subject.Neurosciences: The scientific disciplines concerned with the embryology, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, etc., of the nervous system.Nerve Net: A meshlike structure composed of interconnecting nerve cells that are separated at the synaptic junction or joined to one another by cytoplasmic processes. In invertebrates, for example, the nerve net allows nerve impulses to spread over a wide area of the net because synapses can pass information in any direction.Nervous System: The entire nerve apparatus, composed of a central part, the brain and spinal cord, and a peripheral part, the cranial and spinal nerves, autonomic ganglia, and plexuses. (Stedman, 26th ed)Peripheral Nervous System: The nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system has autonomic and somatic divisions. The autonomic nervous system includes the enteric, parasympathetic, and sympathetic subdivisions. The somatic nervous system includes the cranial and spinal nerves and their ganglia and the peripheral sensory receptors.Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.Neurons: The basic cellular units of nervous tissue. Each neuron consists of a body, an axon, and dendrites. Their purpose is to receive, conduct, and transmit impulses in the NERVOUS SYSTEM.ColoradoSierra Leone: A republic in western Africa, south of GUINEA and west of LIBERIA. Its capital is Freetown.MexicoHispanic Americans: Persons living in the United States of Mexican (MEXICAN AMERICANS), Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin.

The concept also includes architecture, design, and construction of specialized contained, controlled, or closed research environments including those of space labs and stations.Incubators, Infant: Electrically powered devices that are intended to assist in the maintenance of the thermal balance of infants, principally by controlling the air temperature and humidity in an enclosure. (from UMDNS, 1999)New JerseyStem Cells: Relatively undifferentiated cells that retain the ability to divide and proliferate throughout postnatal life to provide progenitor cells that can differentiate into specialized cells.Interferons: Proteins secreted by vertebrate cells in response to a wide variety of inducers. They confer resistance against many different viruses, inhibit proliferation of normal and malignant cells, impede multiplication of intracellular parasites, enhance macrophage and granulocyte phagocytosis, augment natural killer cell activity, and show several other immunomodulatory functions.Interferon Type I: Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).Stem Cell Transplantation: The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Progenitor cells from which all blood cells derive.Interferon-alpha: One of the type I interferons produced by peripheral blood leukocytes or lymphoblastoid cells. In addition to antiviral activity, it activates NATURAL KILLER CELLS and B-LYMPHOCYTES, and down-regulates VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR expression through PI-3 KINASE and MAPK KINASES signaling pathways.Dysautonomia, Familial: An autosomal disorder of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems limited to individuals of Ashkenazic Jewish descent. Clinical manifestations are present at birth and include diminished lacrimation, defective thermoregulation, orthostatic hypotension (HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC), fixed pupils, excessive SWEATING, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and absent reflexes. Pathologic features include reduced numbers of small diameter peripheral nerve fibers and autonomic ganglion neurons. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1348; Nat Genet 1993;4(2):160-4)Primary Dysautonomias: Disorders of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM occurring as a primary condition. Manifestations can involve any or all body systems but commonly affect the BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.Heart Rate: The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.Parasympathetic Nervous System: The craniosacral division of the autonomic nervous system. The cell bodies of the parasympathetic preganglionic fibers are in brain stem nuclei and in the sacral spinal cord. They synapse in cranial autonomic ganglia or in terminal ganglia near target organs. The parasympathetic nervous system generally acts to conserve resources and restore homeostasis, often with effects reciprocal to the sympathetic nervous system.

We have long known that gluten intolerance, both celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, are highly associated with neurological symptoms. Migraines, ataxia (unstable gait), seizures, schizophrenia - the list is long. But a recent research study just published last month sheds some new light on exactly what the mechanism may be. Understanding why these debilitating symptoms occur as a result of a gluten intolerance will, hopefully, go a long way toward increased awareness among the lay public and clinicians alike. It is certainly true that too many millions of Americans suffer the effects of a gluten intolerance unknowingly. They only know that they feel unhealthy but have no idea that gluten is the culprit.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Lateral femoral cutaneous nerve palsy following shoulder surgery in the beach chair position. T2 - a report of 4 cases. AU - Satin, Alexander M.. AU - DePalma, Anthony A.. AU - Cuellar, John. AU - Gruson, Konrad I.. PY - 2014/9/1. Y1 - 2014/9/1. N2 - Neuropathy of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can present as pain, decreased sensation, and/or burning or tingling on the anterolateral thigh. We present 4 cases of lateral femoral cutaneous nerve palsy following shoulder surgery in the beach chair position, all of which occurred in obese patients. This complication, to our knowledge, has never been reported in conjunction with the beach chair position. We believe that the neurapraxia was due to external compression by the patients abdominal pannus. Full resolution of symptoms can be expected within 6 months following conservative management. A preoperative discussion regarding this complication should occur with obese patients undergoing shoulder surgery in the beach chair ...
The territory of Washington became an organized, incorporated territory of the USA in 1853 and its legislature first met in 1854. One of their first rulings was to make counties responsible for caring for all poor, sick, and homeless people whose relatives could not support them. In 1877, King County opened a county poor farm just south of Seattle to meet this need. Harborview Medical Center began as King County Hospital, which was a six-bed facility operating within the poor farm, and patients were cared for by nuns from the Sisters of Charity of the House of Providence. In 1894, a new 125-bed county hospital was commissioned for $80 000 and was located in Seattles Georgetown neighborhood. A new wing was added in 1908 expanding to 225 beds. In 1928 there was a ballot measure to construct a 500-bed hospital for care of the indigent sick, injured, and maternity cases, and $2.75 million was allocated to construct the new hospital on First Hill in Seattle, which is the site of the facility ...

Two aspects of cytokine therapy of intracerebral tumors are considered in this study: modulation of tumor growth in vivo and central nervous system toxicity. Coimplantation of RG-2 glioma cells and retroviral vector producer cell lines was performed to provide a local source of interleukin-2 (IL-2) or IFN-γ within the tumor and coinitiate an antitumor immune response. We demonstrated that local intratumoral production of IL-2 and IFN-γ generates a cell-mediated antitumor response in vivo. This response was manifest as a diffuse infiltration of monocytes/macrophages, CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, and activation of microglial OX42+ cells in intracerebral RG2 tumors. The cell-mediated antitumor immune response resulted in the early suppression of intracranial and subcutaneous tumor growth, but the effect was not sustained and there were no tumor regressions. The absence of increased survival of animals with intracranial tumors is explained in part by ...
This work concerns the roles of neuron glia interactions in the control of neuronal survival during Central Nervous System (CNS) development in Drosophila. The question of whether glia are required to maintain neuronal survival in insects was addressed. Firstly, the GAL4 system was used to achieve in vivo targeted genetic ablation of glia. Secondly, plasmid rescue and P-element excision were exploited to locate and mutate genes which might participate in neuron glia interactions. Targeted glial ablation did not affect pioneer neuron survival. However, increased apoptosis was observed among the FasII and 22C10 expressing subsets of the follower neurons. Targeted ablation only of the interface glia was sufficient to induce follower neuron apoptosis. This difference in the survival requirements of pioneer and follower neurons may be instructive in patterning of the CNS. Neuronal apoptosis was ...
The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN), composed of the L2/L3 branches of the lumbar plexus, is a pure sensory nerve. It emerges at the lateral border of the psoas major muscle and descends laterally and obliquely towards the pelvis. In the pelvis, the nerve lies within aduplication of the fascia iliaca and on top of the iliacus muscle. The nerve takes a remarkable sharp turn and courses inferiorly before it enters the thigh via the muscular space, lacuna musculorum, underneath or even through a gap of the inguinal ligament in variable distance to the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS). It then arrives on top of sartorius muscle (SM) in most cases, deep to the fascia lata. Importantly, the main trunk (the anterior branch or division) stays subfascial approximately 7-10 cm below ASIS (Figure 1 ...

The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) arises from L2-3. After emerging from the lateral border of the psoas major muscle, it courses inferiorly and laterally toward the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS). It then passes under the inguinal ligament and over the sartorius muscle into the thigh, where it divides into two branches (anterior and posterior). The LFCN, a small subcutaneous nerve located between the fascia lata and iliaca, provides sensory innervation to the lateral thigh. On occasion, its area of coverage can include the anterior thigh, normally covered by the femoral nerve. ...

posted on: 6/3/2016 4:28:47 PM. Pioneering Robotic Hernia Repair Technology A major complication associated with surgical procedures is the development of an incisional hernia. In fact, as high as 10% of abdominal operations will be complicated by the development of incisional hernias. An incisional hernia will occur when there is a weakness in the muscle of the abdomen that allows the tissues of the abdomen to protrude through the muscle. The hernia appears as a bulge under the skin, and it can be painful or tender to the touch. Dr. Jeremy Heffner, General Surgeon with Midwest Surgical Specialists and Medical Director of Lima Memorial Health Systems Trauma and Intensive Care Unit, recognized the significance of this complication and felt compelled to do something impactful about it. Four years of research, funded by the America Hernia Association, led to a patent of a new mesh for the treatment and prevention of hernias. ...
The blood-nerve barrier (BNB) is a dynamic and competent interface between the endoneurial microenvironment and the surrounding extracellular space or blood. It is localised at the innermost layer of the multilayered ensheathing perineurium and endoneurial microvessels, and is the key structure that controls the internal milieu of the peripheral nerve parenchyma. Since the endoneurial BNB is the point of entry for pathogenic T cells and various soluble factors, including cytokines, chemokines and immunoglobulins, understanding this structure is important to prevent and treat human immune mediated neuropathies such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, POEMS (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein and skin changes) syndrome and a subset of diabetic neuropathy. However, compared with the blood-brain barrier, only limited knowledge has been accumulated regarding the function, cell biology and clinical significance of the BNB. This ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Imaging of peripheral nerve lesions. AU - Fahr, L. M.. AU - Sauser, Donald. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - The imaging of peripheral nerve lesions remains limited to the radiographic demonstration of secondary skeletal lesions in birth trauma, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, neuropathic arthropathy, leprosy, and congenital indifference to pain. Nerve root avulsions can be imaged directly and the newer imaging modalities now allow delineation of lesions that previously could not be studied using conventional radiography. The ability of ultrasound, CT, and MRI to differentiate soft tissue structures makes it possible, in many instances, to study the primary abnormality in trauma, nerve entrapment syndromes, and tumors. With fractures, the possibility of trauma to adjacent nerves can only be inferred on the radiographs, while the role that peripheral nerve injury plays remains controversial in other entities, such as amputation with replantation. ...

BACKGROUND: We have previously reported that sensory, motor neocortex, and hippocampus are selectively vulnerable to injury in an acute porcine model of HCA at 18 degrees C. This study was undertaken to assess whether further cooling to 10 degrees C
The Esmolol arm is defined as a 48-hour intravenous infusion of esmolol (Brevibloc 20mg/ml), which will be started on enrollment. The infusion rate will begin at 50 micrograms/kg/min and be adjusted to achieve heart rates between 80 and 100 beats/min with standard dosing regimens used in our Neuro intensive care unit. The infusion will be started at a rate of 0.05 milligrams/kg/min (50 micrograms/kg/min) for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes of initial infusion, maintenance infusion may be continued at 0.05 mg/kg/min or increased stepwise (e.g. 0.1 mg/kg/min, 0.15 mg/kg/min to a maximum of 0.2 mg/kg/min) with each step being maintained for 4 or more minutes until the target heart rate is achieved ...
Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been shown to provide neuroprotection after transplantation into the injured nervous system. The present thesis investigates whether adult human and rat MSC differentiated along a Schwann cell lineage could increase their expression of neurotrophic factors and promote regeneration after transplantation into the injured peripheral nerve and spinal cord.. Human and rat mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC and rMSC) expressed characteristic stem cell surface markers, mRNA transcripts for different neurotrophic factors and demonstrated multi-lineage differentiation potential. Following treatment with a cocktail of growth factors, the hMSC and rMSC expressed typical Schwann cells markers at both the transcriptional and translational level and significantly increased production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).. Age and time in culture are of ...

Red ginseng, as an effective herbal medicine, has been traditionally and empirically used for the treatment of neuronal diseases. Many studies suggest that red ginseng and its ingredients protect the brain and spinal cord from neural injuries such as ischemia, trauma, and neurodegeneration. This review focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying the neuroprotective effects of red ginseng and its ingredients. Ginsenoside Rb1 and other ginsenosides are regarded as the active ingredients of red ginseng; the anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidative actions of ginsenosides, together with a series of bioactive molecules relevant to the above actions, appear to account for the neuroprotective effects in vivo and/or in vitro. Moreover, in this review, the possibility is raised that more effective or stable neuroprotective derivatives based on the chemical structures of ginsenosides could be developed. Although further studies, including clinical trials, are necessary to confirm the
The present invention identifies biomarkers that are diagnostic of nerve cell injury and/or neuronal disorders. Detection of different biomarkers of the invention are also diagnostic of the degree of severity of nerve injury, the cell(s) involved in the injury, and the subcellular localization of the injury.
Brain injury or damage is the destruction or degeneration of brain cells. Brain injury can be caused by a variety of internal and external factors. A common category is traumatic brain injury that occurs after head damage from an outside source. Mild traumatic brain injury may cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in more extensive physical damage to the brain that can lead to long-term complications or death. Loss of brain function can also be caused by stroke, a temporary loss of blood supply to the brain, which deprives brain tissue of oxygen and food and causes consequent brain cell death.. Feinstein Institute researchers are studying different aspects of brain injury. They are developing "smart catheters," the next generation of monitoring devices that will allow clinicians to continuously measure functional parameters in the injured brain during surgery. They are studying recovery from central ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Reduction of central nervous system ischemic injury in rabbits using leukocyte adhesion antibody treatment. AU - Clark, Wayne. AU - Madden, Ken P.. AU - Rothlein, Robert. AU - Zivin, Justin A.. PY - 1991. Y1 - 1991. N2 - Activated leukocytes appear to be directly involved in ischemic central nervous system injury. A surface glycoprotein (CD18) on the leukocyte is required for endothelial adherence and subsequent function and can be blocked with leukocyte adhesion antibody treatment. We used two animal models to determine the efficacy of anti-CD18 antibody treatment in preserving neurologic function after central nervous system ischemia. We gave a dose of 1 mg/kg anti-CD18 to treatment rabbits 30 minutes before inducing irreversible ischemia in the brain with intraarterial microspheres or in ...
Heterotopic ossification, defined as the formation of bone in abnormal anatomic locations, can be clinically insignificant or devastating and debilitating, depending on the site and duration of new bone formation. There are many causes of heterotopic ossification (HO), including soft tissue trauma, central nervous system injury, vasculopathies, arthropathies, and inheritance. One of the least understood components of HO is the interaction of the peripheral nervous system with the induction of this process. Recent work has shown that, upon traumatic injury, a cascade of events termed neurogenic inflammation is initiated, which involves the release of neuropeptides, such as substance P and calcitonin gene related peptide. Release of these peptides ultimately leads to the recruitment of activated platelets, mast cells, and neutrophils to the ...
We report here a novel live imaging approach to study astrocyte response to ischemic injury in the brains of living mice. Our results revealed marked effects of sex and estrogen on astrocyte response to ischemic injury. We report here that: (1) bioluminescent signal intensities/GFAP induction were significantly higher in female mice (out of estrus) compared with males (confirmed by immunohistochemistry); (2) in female mice, astrocyte response to ischemia/GFAP upregulation was strongly dependent on the estrus cycle and serum estrogen level; and (3) contrary to the findings in male mice, there was no correlation between bioluminescent signal intensity/GFAP upregulation and size of the ischemic lesion in female GFAP-luc mice.. GFAP is a 50-kDa intermediate filament, predominantly expressed by mature astrocytes in the central nervous system.24,25 Reactive astrogliosis is a key component of the inflammatory cellular response to central ...

The work from Rutgers could be used to help people with Alzheimers, Parkinsons and other neurodegenerative diseases & central nervous system injuries.
As a response to central nervous system injury, astrocytes become reactive. Two cellular hallmarks of reactive gliosis are hypertrophy of astrocyte processes and upregulation of intermediate filament (nanofilament) proteins glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), vimentin, nestin, and synemin. Astrocytes in mice devoid of GFAP and vimentin (GFAP (-/-) Vim (-/-)) do not form cytoplasmic intermediate filaments. GFAP (-/-) Vim (-/-) mice develop larger infarcts after ischemic stroke (Li et al. in J Cereb Blood Flow Metab 28(3):468-481, 2008). Here, we attempted to analyze the underlying mechanisms using oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD), an in vitro ischemia model, examining a potential link between astrocyte intermediate filaments and reactive oxygen species (ROS). We observed a reorganization of the intermediate filament network in astrocytes exposed to OGD. ROS accumulation was higher in GFAP (-/-) Vim (-/-) than wild-type astrocytes when ...

article{ef532af8-d218-4166-9ec2-b39930c591ef, abstract = {,p,Following stroke, complete cellular death in the ischemic brain area may ensue, with remaining brain areas undergoing tissue remodelling to various degrees. Experience-dependent brain plasticity exerted through an enriched environment (EE) promotes remodelling after central nervous system injury, such as stroke. Post-stroke tissue reorganization is modulated by growth inhibitory molecules differentially expressed within the ischemic hemisphere, like chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans found in perineuronal nets (PNNs). PNNs in the neocortex predominantly enwrap parvalbumin-containing GABAergic (PV/GABA) neurons, important in sensori-information processing. Here, we investigate how extracellular matrix (ECM) proteases and their inhibitors may participate in the regulation of PNN integrity during stroke recovery. Rats were subjected to photothrombotic stroke in the motor cortex, and ...

A particular emphasis is placed on the management of pressure injuries, pain management, and physical and occupational therapy, which are critical areas in the care of the neurosurgical patient. Finally, it reviews the types of contributions that palliative care can make to the care of the neurosurgical patient. The ...
Certain medical, traumatic and psychological conditions can cause incompetence and behavior that interferes with the ability of EMS personnel to care for the patient, or that threatens the physical well being and safety of the patient or others. These conditions include, but are not limited to: drugs, metabolic disturbances, central nervous system injury or insult, infections, hypo/hypertension, hypo/hyperthermia, hypoxia, psychological disorders, poisons and toxins. Minnesota law (609.06) authorizes the use of reasonable force upon or toward the person of another without the other s consent when the following circumstances exist or the actor reasonably believes them to exist: when used to restrain a mentally ill or mentally defective person from self injury or injury to another or when used by one with authority to do so to compel compliance with reasonable requirements for the person s control, conduct or treatment.

PKU is an autosomal recessive trait caused by the absence of phenylalanine hydroxylase. Phenylalanine hydroxylase is an enzyme involved in the metabolism of phenylalanine (Phe). When phenylalanine hydroxylase is absent or defective, Phe levels rise and toxic Phe metabolites accumulate, causing central nervous system injury. PKU is a treatable disease. Affected individuals must adhere to a diet low in Phe during childhood. Women with PKU should also adhere to a low Phe diet before and during pregnancy to avoid fetal damage. The offspring of women with untreated maternal hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) usually exhibit mental retardation, microcephaly, growth retardation, and other congenital anomalies. This study will examine the effect of a restricted Phe diet on reproductive outcome in women with maternal HPA.. Participants in this study will be women with HPA whose blood Phe values are persistently greater than 4 mg/dl. Those women with blood ...

Meralgia paraesthetica. Yes, the chosen name for our baby. Psych!. The lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh (also known as the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve) sometimes gets entrapped or compressed between the upper front hip bone and the inguinal ligament (one of the hip ligaments).. Causes may include: obesity, pregnancy, ascites (fluid in the abdomen), tight garments, seat belts, braces, direct trauma, leg length changes, scoliosis, and muscle spasm. The nerve may also be damaged by lower abdominal and pelvic surgical incisions, or may be compressed or injured within the pelvis (eg. by tumours, abscesses and other nice things you dont want to think about when youre eating).. I laughed when I read that "the nerve may become painful over a period of time as weight gain makes underwear, belting or pants waistband exert higher levels of pressure". Weight gain - check.

Neurologic complications of systemic lupus erythematous (neuro-SLE) are common. The most frequent manifestations of neuro-SLE are seizures, encephalopathy, and behavioral changes, but a wide variety of other neurologic abnormalities affecting the central and peripheral nervous system and muscle also occur. Although the prevalence of neuro-SLE is high, the diversity of clinical presentations, the multiple potential etiologies, and the absence of sensitive and specific diagnostic tests render diagnosis difficult. Recent advances in understanding mechanisms of neuronal dysfunction combined with advances in imaging techniques, including functional imaging, should help in diagnosis and management. The mechanisms of neurologic injury can be divided into three broad categories. First, neuronal dysfunction may result from direct effects of the immune system on brain cells such as ...
Neuroregeneration refers to the regrowth or repair of nervous tissues, cells or cell products. Such mechanisms may include generation of new neurons, glia, axons, myelin, or synapses. Neuroregeneration differs between the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the central nervous system (CNS) by the functional mechanisms and especially the extent and speed. When an axon is damaged, the distal segment undergoes Wallerian degeneration, losing its myelin sheath. The proximal segment can either die by apoptosis or undergo the chromatolytic reaction, which is an attempt at repair. In the CNS, synaptic stripping occurs as glial foot processes invade the dead synapse. Nervous system injuries affect over 90,000 people every year. It is estimated that spinal cord injuries alone affect ...

Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a disabling condition associated with neurologic injury, inflammation, and overactive bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling. The inductive factors involved in lesion formation are unknown. We found that the expression of the neuro-inflammatory factor Substance P (SP) is dramatically increased in early lesional tissue in patients who have either fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) or acquired HO, and in three independent mouse models of HO. In Nse-BMP4, a mouse model of HO, robust HO forms in response to tissue injury; however, null mutations of the preprotachykinin (PPT) gene encoding SP prevent HO. Importantly, ablation of SP+ sensory neurons, treatment with an antagonist of SP receptor NK1r, deletion of NK1r gene, or genetic down-regulation of NK1r-expressing mast cells also profoundly inhibit injury-induced HO. These observations establish a potent neuro-inflammatory induction and amplification circuit for BMP-dependent HO lesion formation, and ...
Central neurologic injury (CNI) causes dysfunctions not only in limbs but also in cognitive ability. We applied a novel peripheral nerve rewiring (PNR) surgical procedure to restore limb function. Here, we conducted a prospective study to develop estimates for the extent of preattentive processes to cognitive function changes in CNI patients after PNR. Auditory mismatch negativity (MMN) was measured in CNI patients who received the PNR surgery plus conventional rehabilitation treatment. During the 2-year follow-up, the MMN was enhanced with increased amplitude in the PNR plus rehabilitation group compared to the rehabilitation-only group as the experiment progressed, and progressive improvement in behavioural examination tests was also observed ...

Dr. Peters has additional interests in neurologic rehabilitation strategies and outcome measure assessment.
ECMO has been considered an effective means of therapy for the severe ARDS patients, and the efficiency rate has been between 53 and 76% [2-5]. Hypoxia is the main pathophysiological and physiological characteristic of ARDS that causes systemic organ injury. So ECMO therapy possibly improves high incidence of cerebral dysfunction in ARDS patients (70-100%) by increasing the oxygen supply to the brain tissue, which is most sensitive to hypoxia, theoretically. The recent successful application of ECMO therapy to cardiopulmonary and brain resuscitation procedures have proved that it may have a protective effect on brain function.. However, ECMO is associated with high risk of neurologic injury. Poor neurologic outcomes have been reported in as many as 10-60% of survivors [9]. The study reported that 58% patients developed clinical neurological syndrome including epilepsy, fatigue, pathological pupil and postpone sober [20], neuropsychological disorders and movement disorders ...
Introduction: Despite recent improvements in surgical technique and cerebral protection methods, surgical thoracic aortic repair is still an invasive procedure with a substantial rate of mortality and neurologic injury. The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of surgical stroke on early and late outcomes including ADL and QOL as well as mortality after thoracic aortic surgery.. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed consecutive 500 cases (male: 350, mean age: 62.9±13.2 years) of open aortic repair from 1986 to 2008 performed in our institute. Urgent status was 20.6%. Type of aneurysm was atherosclerotic in 68%, dissected in 32%. Replacement segment was root and ascending (31%), arch (39%), extended arch (10%), descending and its distal (19%). Brain protection method was retrograde cerebral perfusion (RCP) (58%), antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP) (26%), deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) (16%). Surgical stroke was defined as neurological deficit persist over 72 hours after ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of biomechanics in orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation. AU - Kulig, Kornelia. AU - Burnfield, Judith M.. PY - 2008/12/15. Y1 - 2008/12/15. N2 - Movement is fundamental to human well-being, function and participation in work and leisure activities. As a result, regaining optimal movement abilities and independence frequently become central foci of rehabilitation programs developed for individuals recovering from serious orthopedic and neurologic injuries. Further, preventing additional injury to the locomotor system becomes essential for effective long-term management of chronic medical conditions such as tendon dysfunction and diabetes. The primary aim of this perspective is to illustrate the role of biomechanics in orthopedics, musculoskeletal and neurological rehabilitation. Specifically, this paper discusses selected examples, ranging from the tissue to whole body biomechanics level, that highlight how scientific evidence from the ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Neonatal encephalopathy and cerebral palsy. AU - Costantine, Maged. AU - DAlton, Mary E.. AU - Hankins, Gary. PY - 2012/1/4. Y1 - 2012/1/4. N2 - The incidence of cerebral palsy is 1-2 per 1000 births and has remained unchanged over the last 40 years. The occurrence of cerebral palsy is independent of either geographic or economic boundaries. It has also been remarkably resistant to eradication by the introduction of technology such as electronic fetal heart rate monitoring or the increase in cesarean delivery rates. Indeed, the great hope of electronic fetal heart rate monitoring was that intrapartum asphyxia would be promptly identified, delivery rapidly achieved, and neurologic injury of the infant averted. This would in fact parallel the thought processes advanced by the orthopedic surgeon Little, over a century ago, who taught that virtually all cerebral palsy was caused by intrapartum events, whether deprivation of oxygen, trauma, or the combination of the two. ...
Seeley et. al published a fascinating paper entitled "Unravelling Bolero: progressive aphasia, transmodal creativity and the right posterior neocortex" in Brain, 2008. I dont discuss a lot of papers as I think theyre dry and not everyone can get access, but I came across this one and found it curious. One way of approaching neurologic injury is to localize a disease process ("wheres the lesion?") and then see what deficits result. For example, a stroke in the motor strip of the brain will lead to contralateral weakness, and so it can be inferred that the affected anatomy has something to do with motor function. But the authors discuss an interesting idea: some lesions in the brain can stimulate new artistic or musical talents. Maurice Ravel was a French composer best known for his orchestral work "Bolero." Near the end of his career, he developed a progressive language and motor disorder. There are hypotheses that as his speech declined, his musical prowess heightened. The authors of this ...

Neuroprotection is becoming an increasingly recognized and important part of critical care and perioperative medicine. As human beings survive increasingly severe life-threatening injuries and complex surgical interventions, it has become clear that neurologic injury and dysfunction is a primary driver of long-term outcome and disability.
Introduction: Pyruvate Dehydrogenase (PDH) activity has been shown to be inhibited in animal models of post-cardiac arrest. This depressed activity has been postulated to be directly related to neurologic injury secondary to aerobic metabolic dysfunction and accumulation of toxic metabolites. The objective of this study was to determine if PDH inhibition occurs after cardiac arrest (CA) in humans.. Methods: Patients were enrolled as part of a prospective observational trial of CA at a single urban academic medical center from 1/13 to 4/13. A blood sample was collected as early after ROSC as informed consent could be obtained (,24 hours). Our control group consisted of volunteers with no significant medical history. We used a novel method to measure PDH activity from peripheral blood mononuclear cells isolated from fresh blood. We quantified total PDH in 15mg / ml of isolated protein and determined overall PDH activity (PDH activity / total protein) and specific PDH activity (PDH activity / PDH ...
Monday 17th December 2012: A smarter epidural has won the 2nd annual Clinical Innovation Award, sponsored by Enterprise Ireland in association with Cleveland Clinic. The winner, Dr Peter Lee, a consultant anaesthetist with Cork University Hospital, collaborated with University College Cork under their Biomedical Design module to identify a solution for improved epidural delivery.. The purpose of the Clinical Innovation Award is to tap in to Irelands clinical community with a view to developing new healthcare products and services that will improve patient care and benefit both the health care system and Irelands medical technologies sector.. Dr Lee and his collaborators have developed a simple, cost effective and globally applicable solution to the problems associated with epidural administration. This procedure is technically difficult, and requires a clinician to blindly pass the needle into the epidural space for delivery of a local anaesthetic. Complications include ...
Capnography may be used as an adjunct to pulse oximetry and clinical assessment to detect hypoventilation and apnea earlier than pulse oximetry and/or clinical assessment alone. However, there is a lack of evidence that capnography reduces the incidence of serious adverse events (neurologic injury caused by hypoxia, aspiration, death) (ACEP Level B). [1] ...
Infants who undergo surgical procedures in the first few months of life are at a higher risk of death or subsequent neurodevelopmental abnormalities. Although the pathogenesis of these outcomes is multifactorial, an understanding of the nature and pathogenesis of brain injury in these infants may assist the anesthesiologist in consideration of their day-to-day practice to minimize such risks. This review will summarize the main types of brain injury in preterm and term infants and their key pathways. In addition, the review will address key potential pathogenic pathways that may be modifiable including intraoperative hypotension, hypocapnia, hyperoxia or hypoxia, hypoglycemia, and hyperthermia. Each of these conditions may increase the risk of perioperative neurological injury, but their long-term ramifications are unclear.. Read More. ...

Dear Pegah Tavakolkhah, , I have one more question. I have read in the description of some GOs , that they are involved in apoptosis or angiogenesis (which are the main , reasons of cancer). I wanted to know if apoptosis or angiogenesis are GO , themselves. And if they are, would their descendant GOs show the GOs , which are responsible for these two processes? If you do a search for terms either using GOOSE or using AmiGO (http://amigo.geneontology.org/), you can find the GO terms apoptosis (GO:0006915; http://amigo.geneontology.org/cgi-bin/amigo/term-details.cgi?term=GO:0006915) and angiogenesis (GO:0001525; http://amigo.geneontology.org/cgi-bin/amigo/term-details.cgi?term=GO:0001525). You can find the gene products that have been associated with these processes (and the more specific child processes), either by choosing the gene product associations link in AmiGO, or by using GOOSE to query the GO database. I hope that is helpful; if you have any more questions, please dont hesitate to ...
Despite the increasing incidents of brain injuries and neurodegenerative diseases, a definitive clinical therapy for these conditions has not been found yet. Nervous system injuries result in loss of neural cells, causing loss of function in the neural circuitry. As mature neurons do not divide, it is not possible to tolerate the loss of neurons by the production of new ones. In the central nervous system, even though neural stem cells are present, their number and regenerative capacity are very low. In addition, inhibitory molecules are released at the degeneration site which hinders reconnection of the remaining cells. As the damage is due to the loss of neurons, cell therapy is considered as a promising option. Neural stem cells are capable of differentiating into the three major cell types in the central nervous ...
Danny Kiranos is the singer, songwriter and banjo player behind his astonishing persona, Amigo the Devil. If you never met him, you might mistake Amigo the Devil for a monster. The murderfolk maudits most popular song is called "Perfect Wife." With gallows humor to make Marshall Mathers wince, it details gruesome spousal abuse that escalates until the wife rifle-blasts her husband. Two other beloved anthems are "Dahmer Does Hollywood" and "The Reluse," which was originally titled, "Ed Gein." The latter opens the self-released Diggers EP by loosely sketching the necrophiliac Wisconsin serial killer who once made a belt out of human nipples. Think Johnny Cash at his blackest, mixed with Father John Misty, if he exhumed graves at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The Devil is far more than a folkie with a dark side. Theres a sepulchral beauty, acid wit and ingenious arrangements. Both his larynx and his lyrics make him one of the most unique voices in music -- even if he sticks only to songs of the ...

Comrade Koteswarlu was born on November 26, 1954 in Peddapalli town of Karimnagar district which has a legacy of the glorious Telangana armed struggle. He led the Indian revolutionary movement for nearly four decades. Comrade Koteswarlu was brought up by democratic thinking parents and imbibed patriotic feelings and love for the oppressed people since childhood. He was a top rank representative of the generation after the glorious Naxalbari rebellion. Though the Naxalbari rebellion which established Maoist Protracted Peoples War as the path for the Indian revolution was suppressed within a few years, it had a great impact all over the country. Peasant rebellions arose in many areas following its model. It awoke the students in colleges and universities. The slogan Naxalbari Ek Hi Rasta (The Only Way is Naxalbari) reverberated all over the country. It was this backdrop that turned Comrade Koteswarlu into a Maoist revolutionary.

Amigo, no harm intended, and I certainly wasnt meaning to come across as "moan"ing. But really, my comment justifies being called a "sour, pedantic" blogger? Damn.. I did not mean to imply that you should post images of rappers with bling, I was just using that as an example of another prevailing visual cliche. I KNOW your blog is about literature, books, and writers, thats why I read it everyday. You do incredibly great stuff - Ill try to post more comments attesting to that.. But yes, the image of writers smoking IS irksome - to me and I imagine to others. It doesnt bother me to look at the photos, I just think that implicitly associating smoking with great writing is sort of, I dunno, dumb and irrelevant. You did title your post "Smoking makes you look cool" so, unless that was intended ironically (which, by the prickly nature of your response, I dont think it was), then my comment doesnt seem so out of bounds..
