Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Electric Stimulation Therapy
Application of electric current in treatment without the generation of perceptible heat. It includes electric stimulation of nerves or muscles, passage of current into the body, or use of interrupted current of low intensity to raise the threshold of the skin to pain.
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
Excessive sweating. In the localized type, the most frequent sites are the palms, soles, axillae, inguinal folds, and the perineal area. Its chief cause is thought to be emotional. Generalized hyperhidrosis may be induced by a hot, humid environment, by fever, or by vigorous exercise.
Glomerulosclerosis, Focal Segmental
A clinicopathological syndrome or diagnostic term for a type of glomerular injury that has multiple causes, primary or secondary. Clinical features include PROTEINURIA, reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE, and EDEMA. Kidney biopsy initially indicates focal segmental glomerular consolidation (hyalinosis) or scarring which can progress to globally sclerotic glomeruli leading to eventual KIDNEY FAILURE.
Therapeutic introduction of ions of soluble salts into tissues by means of electric current. In medical literature it is commonly used to indicate the process of increasing the penetration of drugs into surface tissues by the application of electric current. It has nothing to do with ION EXCHANGE; AIR IONIZATION nor PHONOPHORESIS, none of which requires current.
Primary focal hyperhidrosis is a common disorder for which treatment is often a therapeutic challenge. A systematic review of current literature on the various treatment modalities for primary focal h...
Abstract Frontal hyperhidrosis appears to be a special and rare form of focal hyperhidrosis. These patients may suffer greatly from the condition so an efficient treatment is highly demanded. Surgical...
Hyperhidrosis is characterized by localized or general excessive sweating which is severe enough to be perceived as pathological. Since excessive sweating often starts in childhood and adolescence, us...
In Europe often no clear distinction is made between deodorant and antiperspirant. Particularly in Germany, the labeling "deo" is used for both. Only antiperspirants are capable of influencing the act...
Significant controversies surround the optimal treatment of primary hyperhidrosis of the hands, axillae, feet, and face. The world's literature on hyperhidrosis from 1991 to 2009 was obtained through...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and patient satisfaction with the use of oxybutynin at low doses for treating axillary hyperhidrosis in a large series of pati...
Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. This disease is very heterogeneous and can...
Compare the results obtained with video-assisted sympathectomy performed in two distinct levels ganglionic (third versus fourth thoracic ganglion) for the treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis...
This is a three-year study in subjects with axillary hyperhidrosis involving injection of Botulinum Toxin Type A into the axilla to reduce sweating.
This is a randomized trial testing the efficacy of a modified 12-step facilitation therapy for individuals with serious mental illness and alcohol use disorders, compared to usual treatmen...
