Concurrent inhibition and excitation of phrenic motoneurons during inspiration: phase-specific control of excitability. (1/1532)

The movements that define behavior are controlled by motoneuron output, which depends on the excitability of motoneurons and the synaptic inputs they receive. Modulation of motoneuron excitability takes place over many time scales. To determine whether motoneuron excitability is specifically modulated during the active versus the quiescent phase of rhythmic behavior, we compared the input-output properties of phrenic motoneurons (PMNs) during inspiratory and expiratory phases of respiration. In neonatal rat brainstem-spinal cord preparations that generate rhythmic respiratory motor outflow, we blocked excitatory inspiratory synaptic drive to PMNs and then examined their phase-dependent responses to superthreshold current pulses. Pulses during inspiration elicited fewer action potentials compared with identical pulses during expiration. This reduced excitability arose from an inspiratory-phase inhibitory input that hyperpolarized PMNs in the absence of excitatory inspiratory inputs. Local application of bicuculline blocked this inhibition as well as the difference between inspiratory and expiratory firing. Correspondingly, bicuculline locally applied to the midcervical spinal cord enhanced fourth cervical nerve (C4) inspiratory burst amplitude. Strychnine had no effect on C4 output. Nicotinic receptor antagonists neither potentiated C4 output nor blocked its potentiation by bicuculline, further indicating that the inhibition is not from recurrent inhibitory pathways. We conclude that it is bulbospinal in origin. These data demonstrate that rapid changes in motoneuron excitability occur during behavior and suggest that integration of overlapping, opposing synaptic inputs to motoneurons is important in controlling motor outflow. Modulation of phasic inhibition may represent a means for regulating the transfer function of PMNs to suit behavioral demands.  (+info)

Contribution of extracranial lymphatics and arachnoid villi to the clearance of a CSF tracer in the rat. (2/1532)

The objective of this study was to determine the relative roles of arachnoid villi and cervical lymphatics in the clearance of a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tracer in rats. 125I-labeled human serum albumin (125I-HSA; 100 micrograms) was injected into one lateral ventricle, and an Evans blue dye-rat protein complex was injected intravenously. Arterial blood was sampled for 3 h. Immediately after this, multiple cervical vessels were ligated in the same animals, and plasma recoveries were monitored for a further 3 h after the intracerebroventricular injection of 100 micrograms 131I-HSA. Tracer recovery in plasma at 3 h averaged (%injected dose) 0.697 +/- 0.042 before lymphatic ligation and dropped significantly to 0.357 +/- 0. 060 after ligation. Estimates of the rate constant associated with the transport of the CSF tracer to plasma were also significantly lower after obstruction of cervical lymphatics (from 0.584 +/- 0. 072/h to 0.217 +/- 0.056/h). No significant changes were observed in sham-operated animals. Assuming that the movement of the CSF tracer to plasma in lymph-ligated animals was a result of arachnoid villi clearance, we conclude that arachnoid villi and extracranial lymphatic pathways contributed equally to the clearance of the CSF tracer from the cranial vault.  (+info)

Atypical mycobacterial lymphadenitis in childhood--a clinicopathological study of 17 cases. (3/1532)

AIMS: To assess the clinical and pathological features of atypical mycobacterial lymphadenitis in childhood to define the salient clinical and histological features. METHODS: 17 cases were included on the basis of positive culture or demonstration of bacilli of appropriate morphology and staining characteristics. RESULTS: The mean age at diagnosis was 4.86 years. All children were systemically well, with clear chest x rays. Unilateral cervical lymphadenopathy was the commonest mode of presentation. Differential Mantoux testing played no part in diagnosis. Clinical diagnosis improved with awareness. Treatment varied with surgeons opting for excision and paediatricians adding six months antituberculous chemotherapy. Acid- and alcohol-fast bacilli were identified in nine cases. Bacterial cultures were conducted in 16 cases and were positive for atypical or nontuberculous mycobacteria in 14, the main organism being M avium-intracellulare complex (11 cases). Histologically, 12 cases had bright eosinophilic serpiginous necrosis with nuclear debris scattered throughout the necrotic foci. Langhans type giant cells featured in the majority of cases but infiltration by plasma cells and neutrophils was not consistent. CONCLUSIONS: Atypical mycobacterial lymphadenitis of childhood represents a rare but significant disease with characteristic clinical and histological features.  (+info)

Bilateral neck exploration under hypnosedation: a new standard of care in primary hyperparathyroidism? (4/1532)

OBJECTIVE: The authors review their experience with initial bilateral neck exploration under local anesthesia and hypnosedation for primary hyperparathyroidism. Efficacy, safety, and cost effectiveness of this new approach are examined. BACKGROUND: Standard bilateral parathyroid exploration under general anesthesia is associated with significant risk, especially in an elderly population. Image-guided unilateral approaches, although theoretically less invasive, expose patients to the potential risk of missing multiple adenomas or asymmetric hyperplasia. Initial bilateral neck exploration under hypnosedation may maximize the strengths of both approaches while minimizing their weaknesses. METHODS: In a consecutive series of 121 initial cervicotomies for primary hyperparathyroidism performed between 1995 and 1997, 31 patients were selected on the basis of their own request to undergo a conventional bilateral neck exploration under local anesthesia and hypnosedation. Neither preoperative testing of hypnotic susceptibility nor expensive localization studies were done. A hypnotic state (immobility, subjective well-being, and increased pain thresholds) was induced within 10 minutes; restoration of a fully conscious state was obtained within several seconds. Patient comfort and quiet surgical conditions were ensured by local anesthesia of the collar incision and minimal intravenous sedation titrated throughout surgery. Both peri- and postoperative records were examined to assess the safety and efficacy of this new approach. RESULTS: No conversion to general anesthesia was needed. No complications were observed. All the patients were cured with a mean follow-up of 18 +/- 12 months. Mean operating time was <1 hour. Four glands were identified in 84% of cases, three glands in 9.7%. Adenomas were found in 26 cases; among these, 6 were ectopic. Hyperplasia, requiring subtotal parathyroidectomy and transcervical thymectomy, was found in five cases (16.1%), all of which had gone undetected by localization studies when requested by the referring physicians. Concomitant thyroid lobectomy was performed in four cases. Patient comfort and recovery and surgical conditions were evaluated on visual analog scales as excellent. Postoperative analgesic consumption was minimal. Mean length of hospital stay was 1.5 +/- 0.5 days. CONCLUSIONS: Initial bilateral neck exploration for primary hyperparathyroidism can be performed safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively under hypnosedation, which may therefore be proposed as a new standard of care.  (+info)

Neck soft tissue and fat distribution: comparison between normal men and women by magnetic resonance imaging. (5/1532)

BACKGROUND: Obesity and increased neck circumference are risk factors for the obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS). SAHS is more common in men than in women, despite the fact that women have higher rates of obesity and greater overall body fat. One factor in this apparently paradoxical sex distribution may be the differing patterns of fat deposition adjacent to the upper airway in men and women. A study was therefore undertaken to compare neck fat deposition in normal men and women. METHODS: Using T1 weighted magnetic resonance imaging, the fat and tissue volumes in the necks of 10 non-obese men and 10 women matched for age (men mean (SE) 36 (3) years, women 37 (3) years, p = 0.7), body mass index (both 25 (0. 6) kg/m2, p>0.9), and Epworth Sleepiness Score (both 5 (1), p = 0.9) were assessed; all denied symptoms of SAHS. RESULTS: Total neck soft tissue volume was greater in men (1295 (62) vs 928 (45) cm3, p<0. 001), but the volume of fat did not differ between the sexes (291 (29) vs 273 (18) cm3, p = 0.6). The only regions impinging on the pharynx which showed a larger absolute volume of fat in men (3.2 (0. 7) vs 1.1 (0.3) cm3, p = 0.01) and also a greater proportion of neck fat in men (1.3 (0.3)% vs 0.4 (0.1)%, p = 0.03) were the anterior segments inside the mandible at the palatal level. CONCLUSIONS: There are differences in neck fat deposition between the sexes which, together with the greater overall soft tissue loading on the airway in men, may be factors in the sex distribution of SAHS.  (+info)

Volume flow estimation by colour duplex. (6/1532)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the accuracy of volume blood flow using a digitised colour duplex scanner. DESIGN: Observer-blinded experimental study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Method comparison was performed with linear regression analysis of 89 paired observations in 11 anaesthetised pigs. A Siemens Sonoline Elegra ultrasound system was used for transcutaneous volume flow estimation using invasive transit time flowmetry by Cardiomed as a reference. RESULTS: For the individual measurement we found a standard error of the estimate (SEE) of 22 ml/min. For the regression line, however, the SEE was only 0.2 ml/min. CONCLUSIONS: Digitised colour-duplex sonography has a volume flow measurement error that is too high for single measurements in the individual patient for the method to be useful in clinical decision making, but sufficient for examinations of groups and comparison of groups.  (+info)

Can nuchal cord cause transient increased nuchal translucency thickness? (8/1532)

When detected in a first trimester scan, an increased thickness of nuchal translucency (NT) may be associated with chromosomal, cardiac or genetic disorders. However, less attention has been devoted to the outcome of those fetuses who have confirmed normal anatomies and karyotyping, but have abnormal first trimester scans. Thus, a challenging new issue is how to counsel such cases of transient increased NT in which the translucency rapidly vanishes with no evidence of other underlying abnormalities. Two cases of transient increased thickness of NT are reported. In both, a nuchal cord was ultrasonographically demonstrated and a thorough work-up revealed chromosomally and anatomically normal fetuses. The pathophysiological theories behind these observations and their significance are discussed. Based on these observations, we suggest that transvaginal sonography combined with Doppler flow studies should be utilized for the presize detection of cord patterns to accomplish the work-up in cases of increased NT.  (+info)

In this study, PET/CT was found to have a sensitivity of 73% and a specificity of 79%. Since inflammatory lymph nodes sometimes manifest false positive FDG findings, we should therefore carefully examine patients with cervical lymph node swelling and consider the anatomic location of both the primary lesion and cervical lymph nodes. Other morphological imaging modalities (CECT, MRI) may therefore also be necessary to obtain more precise anatomic information..

Previous studies have suggested injury assessment reference values (IARVs) for lower neck injury based on scaled upper neck values. This study developed independent flexion and extension IARVs for the lower neck by matching Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) data to impact-tested post-mortem human subjects (PMHSs) with mid- to low-cervical spine injuries. Pendulum and sled tests with Hybrid III midsize male and small female ATDs were run under conditions mimicking those of published PMHS torso drop-sled tests and other PMHS studies. Measurements included upper and lower neck forces and moments, head acceleration, head rotation rate, and head/neck angles for the pendulum tests. Rear impacts corresponding to rigid seatback tests without a head restraint produced lower neck extension moments that increased dramatically with test severity, as measured by increasing delta-V and/or decreasing pulse duration. In contrast, upper neck extension moments increased only modestly with test severity, and all ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Is vessel narrowing secondary to pediatric deep neck space infections of clinical significance?. AU - Carroll, William. AU - Van Beck, Jenna. AU - Roby, Brianne. PY - 2019/10. Y1 - 2019/10. N2 - Introduction: Pediatric deep neck space infections (DNSI) may cause internal jugular vein and/or carotid artery narrowing. Radiologists and otolaryngologists are often queried by emergency room providers and pediatricians with regards to the clinical significance when this radiographic finding is noted. There are often questions raised about need for further imaging, anticoagulation and overall management strategy. There is limited data to support our answers to these questions. This study investigated the clinical significance of vessel narrowing of the internal jugular vein and carotid artery in the setting of DNSI in children. Methods: 208 patients over a 10 year period were reviewed in retrospective fashion. CT scans reports were evaluated for vessel narrowing, and clinical outcomes ...
Clinical Analysis of Risk Factors for Cervical Lymph Node Metastasis in Papillary Thyroid Microcarcinoma: A Retrospective Study of 3686 Patients
Semantic Scholar extracted view of [Cervical lymph node metastases in epithelial neoplasms of the upper respiratory-digestive tract]. by Chiara Cavina et al.
The cervical spine is subjected to wear and tear as well as trauma. This increases the occurrence of degeneration of intervertebral discs and facet joints. Degeneration will result in loss of disc height and the formation of osteophytes on adjacent vertebrae. Nerve roots can be irritated or compressed by this pathology and patients can possibly develop neurological signs and symptoms as well as pain. An anterior neck fusion is a surgical procedure that is frequently used to manage cervical pathologies such as degeneration, spinal stenosis, disc herniation, or trauma. Cervical pathologies can become severe and neural compression may develop. Compression of neural components can present with symptoms such as muscle weakness, numbness, tingling or radicular pain. The main aim of the surgery is to decompress the neural structures, permanently stabilize the vertebrae, to maintain a cervical lordosis and to hold an anatomical disc space. Chronic spinal disorders, including cervical and lumbar ...
Based on this information, new to me, I present this particular technique in MMT I with caution. I seldom use this technique, and cannot recall a time where this technique made a major difference in treatment of whiplash. Thorough treatment of scalenes, SCM, trapezius along with gentle stretching goes a long way toward helping the anterior neck, as in whiplash. Possibility of plaque release is enough for me to consider this technique contraindicated under some conditions ...

Neck masses are common problems in infants and children. Some neck masses are congenital (present at birth) and result from abnormal formation during embryonic development. Many neck masses appear with an upper respiratory infection such as a cold or sinus infection. Some are not found until they become enlarged and painful from infection. Although a neck mass can involve other structures in the head and neck area, most are benign (noncancerous). Cancerous neck masses are rare in young infants and children, but occasionally a mass is diagnosed as Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin disease-both cancers of the lymphatic system.. Your childs physician will consider many factors when diagnosing a neck mass, including the following:. ...
Ann Arbor, Mich. - Body mass index, a well-known method used to determine overweight and obesity in children, may not be the best way to describe distribution of body fat.. Rather the size of a childs neck may better predict childhood obesity, according to a study by the University of Michigan Health System published in the August issue of Pediatrics.. BMI does not adequately describe regional distribution of fat, such as in the upper body, which is a better indicator of some obesity-related complications such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.. Olubukola O. Nafiu, M.D., a pediatric anesthesiologist at the U-M Health System, and his colleagues, examined the usefulness of measuring neck circumference to identify children with high BMI by taking measurements of more than 1,100 children aged 6 to 18 years old.. They found neck circumference correctly identified a high proportion of young children and adolescents who were overweight or obese. For example, a 6-year-old boy with a neck ...

Deep neck infections may be lethal if life‐threatening complications occur, such as descending mediastinitis, pleural empyema, pericardial effusion, epidural abscess, adult respiratory distress syndrome and septic shock, particularly in immunocompromised hosts such as diabetic patients. The occurrence of deep neck infections has been declining since the advent of antibiotic therapy; however, they do still occur and represent challenging diagnostic and treatment cases. The authors describe a case of a 63‐year‐old woman with type 2 diabetes mellitus diagnosed 10 years ago treated with oral antidiabetic drugs with poor glycemic control (HbA1c=9.2%) that was admitted in Otolaryngology department for surgical drainage of a deep neck infection with unclear source. The neck CT scan showed a right parapharyngeal abscess with 13mm diameter with slight compression of the upper airway, extending to the lower edge of the right lobe of the thyroid gland with a longitudinal extent of about 85mm.

Abstract This article discusses the correlation between ultrasound features and cervical lymph node metastasis (CLNM) of thyroid cancer (TC). 110 patients with TC were enrolled. According to pathological results, they were divided into metastasis group (59 cases) and non-metastasis group (51 cases). Both groups were completed the two-dimensional ultrasound and color Doppler ultrasound examination before the operation. Pearson correlation coefficient and Logistic analysis were used to get the correlation between ultrasound features and CLNM of TC. The results show that, the cases in metastasis group with ultrasound features as nodule diameter ≥ 1.5 cm, aspect ratio ≥ 1, inhomogeneous echo, microcalcification, abundant internal blood supply and the distance from capsule (d)=0 were more than those in the non-metastasis group (P,0.05). Pearson analysis showed a significant positive correlation between CLNM and nodule diameter, aspect ratio, echo, microcalcification and abundant internal blood ...

This retrospective study evaluates the clinical benefit of modified radical neck dissection among patients with squamous carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract. Ninety-eight modified neck dissections were performed in 86 patients over a 5-year period. The procedure entailed removal of the submaxillary and jugular chain nodes while the posterior triangle was not dissected. Thirty-two patients received postoperative radiotherapy. Lymph nodes were histologically positive in 55 of 98 dissections (56%). Among 72 determinate patients, recurrence in the dissected neck occurred in 8 of 38 with positive nodes and none of 34 with negative nodes (P less than 0.05). These recurrences occurred in patients who had clinically palpable nodes preoperatively. Postoperative radiotherapy did not significantly alter the overall recurrence rate or survival of patients with positive nodes. Cumulative disease-free survival at 5 years was 70% overall. It is concluded that the modified neck dissection described is ...

A lot of organs and tissues are consisted in the neck such as the spinal cord, esophagus, invertebral discs, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. The neck is located in an unprotected area and is relatively exposed which makes it potentially at high risk for injury in any form. Injury in the neck may be mild to severe in which it may cause minor discomfort, total paralysis and even death.. The lower neck and upper neck gives support to the head and in these areas is where head movement is allowed. These areas are the common site for neck injury. There are different kinds of neck injury which may involve the soft tissue and affect or damage one or more part of the nervous system.. ...

Through the Brain Stem…. The Brain stem is an extension of the brain itself that extends down into the upper neck area (upper cervical spine). The brain stem is susceptible to injury if the Atlas or Axis the top two bones in the spine are twisted or tilted as a result of traumatic accidents or injuries. Most of these injuries are to the head or neck. Examples would be car accidents, falls, diving accidents, surfing injuries, snowboarding falls, childhood falls from trees, off bikes, changing tables and more.. The common denominator is a injury that has torn loose the tissue that holds the spine in place in the upper neck which creates a weakness, which will allow the weight of the head (10-14 lbs) to become displaced from its normal position. This misalignment of the head and neck relationship can be as little as 3/4 of degree and the brain will have to adapt to this new position. Our eyes and ears are created to be balanced. When the head is not balanced properly compensations will develop ...
The ratio of the lengths of the 2nd and 4th digit (2D:4D) is negatively related to prenatal and adult concentrations of testosterone (T). Testosterone appears to be a protective against myocardial infarction (MI) in men as men with low 2D:4D are older at first MI than men with high 2D:4D, and men with coronary artery disease have lower T levels than men with normal angiograms. Neck circumference (NC), a simple and time-saving screening measure to identify obesity is reported to be positively correlated with the factors of the metabolic syndrome, a complex breakdown of normal physiology characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension, and is therefore likely to increase the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). To investigate possible associations between 2D:4D ratios and NC in men and women. 2D:4D ratios, NC, along with measures of waist and hip circumferences, body mass index (BMI), and waist-to-hip ratio was recorded from 127 men and 117 women.

In the situation of any permanent head or neck swelling whether the cause is known or unknown, the diagnoses of lymphedema must be considered There are several groups of people who experience head or neck swelling from known causes, but it doesnt go away or unknown causes where the swelling can actually get worse as time goes by. Group One This group includes those who have had the injuries, infections, insect bites, trauma to the leg, surgeries or reaction to a medication. When this swelling does not go away, and becomes permanent it is called secondary lymphedema. Group Two Another group that experiences permanent head or neck swelling are cancer patients, people who are morbidly obese, or those with the condition called lepedema (usually limbs). What causes the swelling to remain permanent is that the lymph system has been so damaged that it can no longer operate normally in removing the bodys waste fluid. In cancer patients this is the result of either removal of the lymph nodes for cancer ...

Neck pain is discomfort in any of the structures in the neck. These include the muscles, nerves, bones (vertebrae), and the disks between the bones. Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae. Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back. The head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, and it is these areas that commonly cause neck pain. The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of the neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for the head to sit on. If this support system is affected adversely, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain. When your neck is sore, you may have difficulty moving it, especially turning to one side. Many people describe this as having a stiff neck. If neck pain involves nerves, you may feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in ...

Acute neck pain resolves as the injury heals, usually within several days or weeks. Chronic neck pain lasts longer than three months. Chronic pain may be constant and caused by structural changes in the spine from degenerative diseases..

TDC is the most common congenital cystic mass of the neck, occurring in up to 90% of cases.1 Approximately 80% of these cysts are located at or below the level of the hyoid bone.2 Clinically, TDC presents as a painless paramedian swelling or anterior neck mass that moves on protruding the tongue or swallowing, owing to attachment to the hyoid bone.. Ultrasound of a TDC usually shows a midline anechoic mass in the typical locations described above, with a thin outer wall. There may be a variable internal echo within the cyst, depending on content, predominantly owing to proteinaceous material rather than infection or inflammation.3. On CT scans, TDC appears as a well circumscribed, smooth-walled hypoattenuated mass along the course of embryologic thyroid migration (shown in Figure 5). Mean internal density measurements are typically less than 20 Hounsfield units. Increased density within a cyst may be the result of thicker, more viscous content, suggestive of prior infection.4 TDCs are usually ...
