Bilateral Post-Traumatic Facial Paralysis That Contains Longitudinal and Transverse Temporal Fracture.

Acute bilateral post-traumatic facial paralysis is rare in the literature. Post-traumatic facial paralysis is frequently accompanied transverse fractures of temporal more. The incidence of acute bilateral post-traumatic facial paralysis has been reported as 1 to 5 per million in the literature. Trauma and concurrent facial paralysis are usually in the same subsite (right temporal bone fracture and right facial paralysis). There is one pathophysiological pattern for a single temporal bone fracture in a subsi...

Causation of Acute Flaccid Paralysis by Myelitis and Myositis in Enterovirus-D68 Infected Mice Deficient in Interferon αβ/γ Receptor Deficient Mice.

Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) caused a large outbreak in the summer and fall of 2014 in the United States. It causes serious respiratory disease, but causation of associated paralysis is controversial, because the virus is not routinely identified in cerebrospinal fluid. To establish clinical correlates with human disease, we evaluated EV-D68 infection in non-lethal paralysis mouse models. Ten-day-old mice lacking interferon responses were injected intraperitoneally with the virus. Paralysis developed in hindlim...


MANAGEMENT OF A REEVE'S MUNTJAC ( MUNTIACUS REEVESI) WITH SEIZURES USING LEVETIRACETAM.

This report describes the diagnosis and management of idiopathic epilepsy in a 4-yr-old intact female Reeve's muntjac ( Muntiacus reevesi). The patient was initially witnessed to have isolated paroxysmal events consistent with epileptic seizures (altered consciousness, lateral recumbency, tonic/clonic movement of limbs) lasting less than 3 min with an immediate return to normal consciousness. The seizure frequency increased to >3 seizures within 24 hr and phenobarbital 3 mg/kg orally every 12 hr was started...

Hemidiaphragmatic paralysis: A case report.

Hemidiaphragmatic paralysis is initially recognised as postoperative respiratory distress. The subsequent sequential management of the patient following arthroscopic shoulder surgery under interscalene block is described. Ultrasound-guided technique is considered to be the safest for interscalene block. Reducing the volume of anaesthetic used reduces its spread to the phrenic nerve and thus reduces the incidence of hemidiaphragmatic paralysis. Furthermore, a reduction in anaesthetic volume has equivalent an...

Eyelid reanimation using crossface nerve graft: Relationship between surgical outcome and preoperative paralysis duration.

To reanimate the mimetic muscles, crossface nerve graft (CFNG) is an effective surgical option. However, muscle atrophy after facial paralysis may influence the surgical result. We analyzed the relationship between surgical result and preoperative paralysis duration.

Tick Paralysis: Solving an Enigma.

In comparison to other arachnids, ticks are major vectors of disease, but less than 8% of the known species are capable of inducing paralysis, as compared to the ~99⁻100% arachnids that belong to venomous classes. When considering the potential monophyly of venomous Arachnida, this review reflects on the implications regarding the classification of ticks as venomous animals and the possible origin of toxins. The origin of tick toxins is compared with scorpion and spider toxins and venoms based on their si...

Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis after an unusual physical effort.

Diaphragmatic paralysis is an uncommon cause of pulmonary dysfunction and can occur after traumatic phrenic nerve injury. Penetrating and blunt trauma to the neck is the most recognized mechanism of injury being stretching of the nerves very uncommon. We report a case of a 39-year-old man with bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis due to violent stretching of the phrenic nerves. Clinical features and diagnosis methods are also reviewed.

Facial Paralysis in Patients With Hemifacial Microsomia: Frequency, Distribution, and Association With Other OMENS Abnormalities.

Although facial paralysis is a fundamental feature of hemifacial microsomia, the frequency and distribution of nerve abnormalities in patients with hemifacial microsomia remain unclear. In this study, the authors classified 1125 cases with microtia (including 339 patients with hemifacial microsomia and 786 with isolated microtia) according to Orbital Distortion Mandibular Hypoplasia Ear Anomaly Nerve Involvement Soft Tissue Dependency (OMENS) scheme. Then, the authors performed an independent analysis to de...

Incomplete facial paralysis - The use of the ipsilateral residual facial nerve as a donor nerve for facial reanimation.

The reconstructive approach for incomplete facial paralysis is not yet determined. In this article we present a new surgical approach for patients with incomplete facial paralysis in which residual, ineffective movement is detected pre-operatively in the ipsilateral bucco-zygomatic territory of the paretic facial nerve.

Burn Injuries in Patients with Paralysis: A National Perspective on Injury Patterns and Outcomes.

The affect of paralysis-related comorbidities on outcomes in burn-injured patients has not been explored. We hypothesize that comorbid paralysis is associated with increased morbidity in this population. All burned patients with prior diagnoses of paralysis were identified from the National Burn Repository (Version 8.0). One-to-one matching of nonparalyzed burn-injured patients was performed, and nonparametric analysis was used to compare the groups. We identified 432 paralyzed patients, who were predominan...

Nonsurgical Treatment for Posttraumatic Complete Facial Nerve Paralysis.

Current recommendations envisage early surgical exploration for complete facial nerve paralysis associated with temporal bone fracture and unfavorable electrophysiologic features (response to electroneuronography,

The Long Exercise Test in Periodic Paralysis: A Bayesian Analysis.

The long exercise test (LET) is used to assess the diagnosis of periodic paralysis (PP), but LET methodology and normal "cut-off" values vary.

Christopher Hitchens' Public Dying: Toward a Secular-Humanist Ars Moriendi?

This article explores the public dying of journalist, writer, provocateur, public intellectual, and renowned atheist, Christopher Hitchens. It does so primarily through an analysis of television interviews given by Hitchens following his diagnosis with esophageal cancer in June 2010. Four key themes are identified as emerging from analysis of the interviews: (a) Hitchens' explicit sense of mission in challenging myths and superstitions surrounding cancer, dying, and death; (b) the personal experience of ter...

Laryngeal mask airway and transient hypercapnic hyperpnea for video-endoscopic assessment of unilateral laryngeal paralysis in dogs.

To evaluate the ability to assess laryngeal function and to diagnose unilateral laryngeal paralysis (uLP) via airway endoscopy and carbon dioxide (CO) stimulation.

Trial of Contralateral Seventh Cervical Nerve Transfer for Spastic Arm Paralysis.

Background Spastic limb paralysis due to injury to a cerebral hemisphere can cause long-term disability. We investigated the effect of grafting the contralateral C7 nerve from the nonparalyzed side to the paralyzed side in patients with spastic arm paralysis due to chronic cerebral injury. Methods We randomly assigned 36 patients who had had unilateral arm paralysis for more than 5 years to undergo C7 nerve transfer plus rehabilitation (18 patients) or to undergo rehabilitation alone (18 patients). The prim...

Factors Predicting the Recovery of Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis After Thyroidectomy.

We used voice analysis and clinicopathological factors to explore the prognosis of unilateral vocal fold paralysis after thyroid surgery.

Facial Nerve Paralysis-A Rare Complication of Open Reduction of Zygomaticomaxillary Complex Fractures.

Facial nerve paralysis is an unusual formidable complication that can manifest after various maxillofacial surgeries, including open reduction of facial trauma. The branches more predisposed to such injury are the zygomatic and marginal mandibular branches. Zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures are frequently encountered in maxillofacial trauma. The facial nerve has not been described as endangered during ZMC surgery. Paralysis of the buccal branch after ZMC repair with delayed onset has been reported...

Outcomes From Lateral Eyelid Coupling for Facial Paralysis Using the Modified Tarsoconjunctival Flap.

In the setting of facial paralysis, inadequate eyelid closure and lower eyelid ectropion can lead to corneal exposure and impaired quality of life. Repair of paralytic ectropion is challenging, and an ideal surgical approach for all cases has not been identified.

Life Experience of Patients With Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis.

Clinicians and patients benefit when they have a clear understanding of how medical conditions influence patients' life experiences. Patients' perspectives on life with unilateral vocal fold paralysis have not been well described.

Recognizing thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis.

Thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis (THPP) is a rare but potentially serious complication of thyrotoxicosis. The resulting muscle weakness is profound, associated with more severe hypokalemia, yet reversible. However, clinicians must be cautious because patients can develop life-threatening hyperkalemia during treatment. Underlying causes should be investigated as repeated episodes of THPP may occur.

Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis: an unusual presentation of hyperthyroidism.

Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is a complication of hyperthyroidism among Asians, characterised by sudden onset of hypokalaemia and muscle paralysis. Several factors may contribute to a delay in diagnosis, including the subtlety of hyperthyroidism, the transient nature of the events and the rarity of this disease in the West. As life-threatening arrhythmias may occur during an attack, awareness among physicians is necessary for early recognition and treatment. Advances have been made in understanding t...
