We aimed to determine the validity of six models that used baseline clinical and computed tomographic characteristics to predict mortality or unfavorable outcome at 6 months or later after severe or moderate TBI. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING The(More)
There exists no "gold standard" in the treatment of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE). We treated 7 patients with mild UNE using a local steroid injection with ultrasonographic monitoring. At clinical follow-up after 6 weeks, 4 patients had improved, 2 were stable, and 1 reported an increase in symptoms. Ultrasound-guided steroid injection in mild UNE is(More)
BACKGROUND Peripheral neuropathy is a frequent side effect of bortezomib chemotherapy. Relatively little is known about the clinical characteristics of this neuropathy, especially with respect to pain. Our aim was to describe the clinical characteristics and course of bortezomib-induced polyneuropathy. METHODS This is a retrospective cohort study of 39(More)
