Neuroendocrine control of body fluid metabolism.
TLDR
The role played by brain ANP and its interaction with neurohypophysial hormones in the control of body fluid homeostasis is emphasized. Expand
Post-dural (post-lumbar) puncture headache: Risk factors and clinical features
TLDR
A significant number of patients may suffer from PDPH in the absence of any symptoms apart from the headache itself, indicating that a further analyses of existing studies should be made to determine if a criteria change may need consideration. Expand
Lateral femoral cutaneous neuralgia: An anatomical insight
TLDR
Within the first 3 cm of leaving the pelvis, the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve was observed deep to the fascia lata; therefore, surgical dissection within the subcutaneous fascia may be conducted with relative impunity near the anterior superior iliac spine just inferior to the inguinal ligament. Expand
Intracranial subdural hematoma post-spinal anesthesia: report of two cases and review of 33 cases in the literature.
TLDR
The presence of any of the signs or symptoms mentioned above should alert for the possibility of an intracranial subdural hematoma as a complication of puncture of the dura mater, especially in those patients with PDPH for more than one week, at which time investigation by neuroimaging is necessary. Expand
Nonmicrocephalic Infants with Congenital Zika Syndrome Suspected Only after Neuroimaging Evaluation Compared with Those with Microcephaly at Birth and Postnatally: How Large Is the Zika Virus
TLDR
In microcephaly at birth, except for polymicrogyria, all patients showed abnormalities described in the literature, and in postnatal microCEphaly, the only abnormalities not seen were a simplified gyral pattern and calcifications outside the cortico-subcortical junction. Expand
Intrinsic pulsatile secretory activity of immortalized luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone-secreting neurons.
TLDR
The organization of LHRH neurons into interconnected clusters could serve to coordinate L HRH secretion from individual cells and, thereby, orchestrate functions in vivo as diverse as the onset of puberty, the timing of ovulation, and the duration of lactational infertility. Expand
Clinical features and neuroimaging (CT and MRI) findings in presumed Zika virus related congenital infection and microcephaly: retrospective case series study
TLDR
Severe cerebral damage was found on imaging in most of the children in this case series with congenital infection presumably associated with the Zika virus. Expand
Spectrum of Spinal Cord, Spinal Root, and Brain MRI Abnormalities in Congenital Zika Syndrome with and without Arthrogryposis
TLDR
Most infants with congenital Zika syndrome had some degree of spinal cord thickness reduction, predominant in the thoracic segment (without arthrogryposis) or in the entire spinal cord (withArthrogyposis), and the conus medullaris anterior roots were reduced in both groups. Expand
Prognostic factors in civilian gunshot wounds to the head: a series of 110 surgical patients and brief literature review
TLDR
Age of the patient (juvenile/young age), high preoperative Glasgow coma score, lack of pupil abnormalities, and absence of intracerebral hematoma are predictors of a good prognosis are identified. Expand
Post-mastectomy pain syndrome: the magnitude of the problem.
TLDR
The approach to patients undergoing surgery for breast cancer requires pre- and postoperative follow-up by a multidisciplinary team and can provide a rational choice of surgical technique, identify patients with risk factors, minimize or eliminate risk factors whenever possible, diagnose beforehand the post-mastectomy pain syndrome, and provide adequate treatment to improve the quality of life.
