Hypokalaemic periodic paralysis is a rare skeletal muscle channelopathy causing flaccid paralysis, which predominantly presents in adolescents and young adults. I report a case of a 33-year-old Caucasian man who presented with sudden onset paralysis, following previous similar presentations without investigation. Blood tests revealed undetectable serum potassium levels in the context of paralysis. Other causes of hypokalaemia were excluded, and the patient was treated with planned lifelong prophylactic pota...
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.
There are no effective medications for delaying the progress of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world. In this study, our results with C. elegans showed that rose essential oil (REO) significantly inhibited AD-like symptoms of worm paralysis and hypersensivity to exogenous 5-HT in a dose-dependent manner. Its main components of β-citronellol and geraniol acted less effectively than the oil itself. REO significantly suppressed Aβ deposits and reduced the Aβ oligo...
Free extensor digitorum brevis muscle flap in facial paralysis, and the second metatarsophalangeal joint flap is used at the temporomandibular joint reconstruction for a long time. Anatomically, these flaps can be harvested through even the same pedicle flap even on the same regions. Literature is available of their usage along with the use of hand and upper extremity reconstruction. Unlike this example, the authors have used these flaps in maxillofacial region where facial paralysis and temporomandibular j...
The aim of this study was to measure the association between crus atrophy as depicted by computed tomography (CT) and fluoroscopic diagnosis of hemidiaphragmatic paralysis in patients with suspected diaphragmatic dysfunction.
Acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) surveillance rates are used as an indicator of surveillance sensitivity to detect poliomyelitis with an expected rate of ≥1 case per 100 000 population in children under 15 years of age.
There is little doubt that having a theoretic foundation will benefit the field of visualization, including its main subfields. Because there has been a substantial amount of work on taxonomies and conceptual models in the visualization literature and some recent work on theoretic frameworks, such a theoretic foundation is not a foolish or impractical ambition. This article asks, "How can we build a theoretic foundation for visualization collectively as a community?" The authors envision the pathways for fo...
Enteroviral infections can cause acute flaccid paralysis secondary to anterior myelitis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is important in the diagnosis of this potentially devastating pediatric disease. Before the 2014 outbreak of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), the virus was considered a relatively benign disease.
Christopher Goatley and Simon Bran introduce the 'hidden' small fishes found on coral reefs.
Post-licensure surveillance for adverse events following immunizations (AEFI) can identify rare complications of vaccinations and rigorous vaccine adverse event causality assessments can help to identify possible causal relationships. We report the development of arm paralysis after varicella vaccination in a 1-year-old child. Paralysis was initially presumed to be due to vOka because of the temporal relationship between vaccination and onset of arm weakness; however, molecular studies identified wild-type ...
Unilateral vocal fold paralysis resulting in glottic incompetence can cause impairment of laryngeal functions, including airway protection and phonation. The objective of this study is to present an easy new technique for harvesting and injection of abdominal fat into the vocal fold for patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis. This is a retrospective study of patients carried out on 16 patients suffering from unilateral vocal fold paralysis resulting from different etiologies. All patients were subjec...
Acute posterolateral corner injuries of the knee with associated hamstring avulsions and peroneal paralysis are rare in rugby. Regain of motor function following a complete paralysis is documented to be 38%. To our knowledge, only one case describes return to preinjury level of competitive sport taking up to 27 months. A 24-year-old international level rugby player, a medical student, sustained an acute posterolateral knee injury with associated anterior cruciate ligament tear, bicep femoris and semimembran...
The reference values of long exercise test are inconsistent in previous studies. Our research aims to determine the reference values and improve diagnostic efficiency of long exercise test in periodic paralysis.
A Little Bit (of Immobilization) Goes a Long Way: Commentary on an article by Christopher L. Camp, MD, et al.: "Timing of Postoperative Mechanical Loading Affects Healing Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction. Analysis in a Murine Model".
Paralysis, whether caused by spinal cord injury, neurodegenerative disease, or other factors, poses a host of issues for patients. These include not just the inability to move parts of their bodies but potential problems with communication and bladder control as well. Fortunately, the last decade has seen promising technology advances to address these concerns. Although most are still in the research stage, these technologies-including brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), exoskeletons, and robotics-may one day...
