BACKGROUND Animal studies suggest that alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid-kainate (AMPA-KA) receptors are involved in pain processing. The effects of the competitive AMPA-KA antagonist LY293558 in two types of experimental pain in human volunteers, brief pain sensations in normal skin, and mechanical allodynia-pinprick hyperalgesia(More)
Papillary tumor of the pineal region has recently been proposed as a new, distinct clinicopathological entity. On the basis of the immunophenotypic and ultrastructural properties of these lesions, origin from specialized ependymocytes of the subcommissural organ was postulated. We present the third publication on a papillary pineal tumor and describe the(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVES To report a case of reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy (RPL) in a patient with traumatic cervical spinal cord injury. SETTING Neurologic inpatient Unit, Lahey Clinic, Burlington, MA, USA. METHODS A 55-year-old woman with a residual spastic quadriparesis from a traumatic C5-C6 fracture developed, during an(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies suggest that 2-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole-proprionic acid (AMPA)/kainate antagonists reduce experimentally induced pain. There have been no studies of AMPA/kainate antagonists in clinical pain. METHODS Analgesic efficacy of intravenous LY293558 (0.4 or 1.2 mg/kg) was compared with that of intravenous ketorolac(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of maneuvers to increase intrathoracic pressure and of Trendelenburg position on the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the subclavian vein (SCV) and the relationship between the SCV and adjacent structures have not been investigated. METHODS In ultrasonography-guided SCV catheterization (N = 30), the CSA of the SCV and the distance(More)
