"Pseudo-suprascapular notch": is it a sonographic trap in suprascapular nerve block?

The aim of the study was to describe the radiological anatomy of the -a structure localized at the floor of the supraspinatus fossa, just below the true suprascapular notch. In sonographic examination...

Electrodiagnostic Evidence of Suprascapular Nerve Recovery after Decompression.

The purpose was to investigate if surgical arthroscopic decompression or ultrasound-guided aspiration of a paralabral cyst would result in suprascapular nerve recovery from axonal regeneration based o...

Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis of Bilateral Mastoid Cavity.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease, which may involve various organ systems; therefore, it has multiple clinical manifestations.

A very rare case of a right insular lobe Langerhans cell histiocytosis (CD1a +) mimicking glioblastoma multiforme in a young adult.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a multi-systemic dendritic cell proliferation relatively uncommon in adults. Central nervous system (CNS) LHC outside the pituitary is even more uncommon.

Variable morphology of the suprascapular notch: a proposal for classification in Chinese population.

The variable of the suprascapular notch (SSN) is a common cause in suprascapular nerve (SN) entrapment. Hence, knowledge of SSN variations may be predictive valuable for the predisposition to compress...

RFp on Suprascapular N. Versus RFp on Suprascapular N. and Circumflex in the Treatment of Painful Shoulder

Pulsed radiofrequency produces more lasting pain relief than use of peripheral blocks or analgesic medication in the treatment of chronic pain. We study the use of pulsed radiofrequency o...

Does Ultrasound-guided Suprascapular Nerve Block Provide Additional Benefit Over Traditional Rehabilitation Program for Patients With Chronic Shoulder Pain

This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of hydrodilatation with hyaluronic acid under ultrasonographic guidance plus physical therapy (PT) with that of PT alone for treating adhes...

Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Young Patients With Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more...

Interscalene Block Versus Infraclavicular Block Plus Suprascapular Nerve Block

Despite their reliability and efficacy for shoulder surgery analgesia, above clavicle brachial plexus blocks are related with phrenic nerve palsy and diaphragm paralysis that may not be to...

Suprascapular Nerve Block as Postoperative Analgesia After Artroscopic Shoulder Surgery

The purpose of this randomized study is to examine the effect of a selective suprascapular nerve block on post operative pain after arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Half of the subjects will...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rare malignant neoplasm of dendritic LANGERHANS CELLS exhibiting atypical cytology, frequent mitoses, and aggressive clinical behavior. They can be distinguished from other histiocytic and dendritic proliferations by immunohistochemical and ultrastructure studies. Cytologically benign proliferations of Langerhans cells are called LANGERHANS CELL HISTIOCYTOSIS.

A rare form of non-Langerhans-cell histiocytosis (HISTIOCYTOSIS, NON-LANGERHANS-CELL) with onset in middle age. The systemic disease is characterized by infiltration of lipid-laden macrophages, multinucleated giant cells, an inflammatory infiltrate of lymphocytes and histiocytes in the bone marrow, and a generalized sclerosis of the long bones.

A group of disorders resulting from the abnormal proliferation of and tissue infiltration by LANGERHANS CELLS which can be detected by their characteristic Birbeck granules (X bodies), or by monoclonal antibody staining for their surface CD1 ANTIGENS. Langerhans-cell granulomatosis can involve a single organ, or can be a systemic disorder.

The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.

General term for the abnormal appearance of histiocytes in the blood. Based on the pathological features of the cells involved rather than on clinical findings, the histiocytic diseases are subdivided into three groups: HISTIOCYTOSIS, LANGERHANS CELL; HISTIOCYTOSIS, NON-LANGERHANS-CELL; and HISTIOCYTIC DISORDERS, MALIGNANT.
