Loss of Foveal Cone Structure Precedes Loss of Visual Acuity in Patients With Rod-Cone Degeneration.

To assess the relationship between cone spacing and visual acuity in eyes with rod-cone degeneration (RCD) followed longitudinally.

Central sensitization increases the pupil dilation elicited by mechanical pinprick stimulation.

High frequency electrical stimulation (HFS) of skin nociceptors triggers central sensitization (CS), manifested as increased pinprick sensitivity of the skin surrounding the site of HFS. Our aim was to assess the effect of CS on pinprick-evoked pupil dilation responses (PDRs) and pinprick-evoked brain potentials (PEPs). We hypothesized that the increase in the positive wave of PEPs following HFS would result from an enhanced pinprick-evoked phasic response of the locus coeruleus-noradrenergic system (LC-NS)...

The association between cone density and visual function in the macula of patients with retinitis pigmentosa.

We observed cone photoreceptors by using adaptive optics (AO) fundus camera and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and examined the correlations between cone photoreceptors and visual function over 2 years.

Cone ERG Changes During Light Adaptation in Two All-Cone Mutant Mice: Implications for Rod-Cone Pathway Interactions.

Incorporating Cone-Beam CT Into the Diagnostic Algorithm for Suspected Radiocarpal Fractures: A New Standard of Care?

The purpose of this study was to assess the result of adding cone-beam CT to the standard imaging algorithm for patients with suspected radiographically occult traumatic radiocarpal fractures. A prospective review was performed on all patients who had cone-beam CT investigation of acute wrist pain after normal initial radiographs. Patients with no identified fractures were clinically reassessed and referred for MRI if concern for a fracture persisted. In all, 117 patients were assessed; 50.4% had fracture...

Comparative assessment of condylar position in patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and asymptomatic patients using cone-beam computed tomography.

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are the most common reason of non-dental pain in the orofacial region. A clinical examination of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with additional imaging is the most recommended procedure for TMD diagnosis.

Heterosynaptic facilitation of mechanical nociceptive input is dependent on the frequency of conditioning stimulation.

High-frequency burst-like electrical conditioning stimulation (HFS) applied to human skin induces an increase in mechanical pinprick sensitivity of the surrounding unconditioned skin (a phenomenon known as secondary hyperalgesia). The present study assessed the effect of frequency of conditioning stimulation on the development of this increased pinprick sensitivity in humans. In a first experiment we compared the increase in pinprick sensitivity induced by HFS using monophasic non-charge-compensated pulses ...

"Seeing is believing". A qualitative approach to studying the use of cone beam computed tomography in endodontics in Sweden.

To gain insight into the decision processes of dentists when requesting a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) examination in endodontic settings.

Mini-Mental State Examination: new normative values on subjects in Southern Italy.

The aims of the present study were: (a) to obtain new normative data of the Italian version of the Mini-Mental Examination State (MMSE) (Measso et al. in Dev Neuropsychol 9:77-85, 1993) by administering the tool to a sample of normal Italian individuals more representative of the current Italian population; (b) to compare the sensitivity of this tool in detecting patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease (AD according to NIA-AA), as compared to the those reported in previous normative Italian studies.

Symptom screening in paediatrics tool for screening multiple symptoms in Brazilian patients with cancer: a cross-sectional validation study.

The objective of this study was to translate, culturally adapt and validate the Symptom Screening in Paediatrics Tool (SSPedi) into the Brazilian Portuguese language to be used by paediatric oncology patients in Brazil.

Validation of the BOOST Risk Stratification Tool as a Predictor of Unplanned 30-Day Readmission in Elderly Patients.

Cone beam-computed tomography angiography by intravenous contrast injection is reliable to evaluate patients with large vessel occlusion.

Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients due to emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) is standard treatment, the benefits, however, are highly time-sensitive. After patient eligibility for reperfusion therapy is determined by conventional radiological examinations, the time to be transferred from the department of radiological examination to angiography-suites is critical. We speculated that the time required for the diagnosis of AIS might be reduced if we could determine MT el...

Transcultural Validation of the French Version of the Modified Edmonton Symptom Assessment Scale: The ESAS12-F.

Cancer-related physical symptoms can decrease patients' overall quality of life and are often underdiagnosed. The Edmonton Symptom Assessment Scale (ESAS) is widely used in palliative care for cancer patients to easily assess cancer patients' symptoms. It has been often modified, adding symptoms and explanations, and translated into many languages. The European Association of Palliative Care research team developed a database, which included the modified 12-item ESAS-r as the symptom assessment tool. The p...

Digital Rectal Examination Remains a Key Prognostic Tool for Prostate Cancer: A National Cancer Database Review.

Prostate cancer clinical stage T2 (cT2) subclassifications, as determined by digital rectal examination (DRE), are a historic method of staging prostate cancer. However, given the potential discomfort associated with prostate examination and the wide availability of other prognostic tests, the necessity of DRE is uncertain. This study sought to determine the prognostic value of the prostate cancer cT2 subclassifications in a contemporary cohort of patients.

Progesterone relates to enhanced incisional acute pain and pinprick hyperalgesia in the luteal phase of female volunteers.

The role of sex hormones on postsurgical pain perception is basically unclear. Here, we studied the role of endogenous gonadal hormones for pain and hyperalgesia in human volunteers after experimental incision. A 4-mm incision was made in the volar forearm of 15 female volunteers both in the follicular and the luteal phase (random block design). Somatosensory profiles were assessed at baseline and 1 to 72 hours after incision by quantitative sensory testing, compared between both cycle phases, and related t...
