OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to examine the presence of fibromyalgia (FM) in elderly adults and to evaluate the impact of the severity of FM on quality of life. METHODS: A total of 100 patients between 65 and 80 years of age were included. The main admission diagnosis of the patients was recorded. Presence of FM was evaluated based on 1990 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) diagnostic criteria. The FM group was comprised of 31 patients fulfilling these criteria, and the remaining 69 patients composed the non-FM group...

The syndrome of transient headache and neurologic deficits with cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis (HaNDL), is a rare, benign, self-limiting syndrome that is not well known. Cerebrospinal fluid examination (CSF) on clinical suspicion has diagnostic value for this syndrome, which has a rich neurological symptomatology that can mimic many diseases causing mortality and morbidity. Although the ethiopathogenesis of this syndrome is not fully known, autoimmunity is thought to be in the foreground. Described in this article is a HaNDL case that on first clinic presentation appeared to be a transient ischemic attack (TIA) with temporary but recurring neurological findings and normal CSF pressure accompanied by papilledema...

Cancer is frequently seen in women of reproductive age. Diagnosis, management of treatment, and safety of the therapeutic approach are particularly important for these patients. Presently described is pain management in a case of pregnancy with malignant mesenchymal tumor. A 23-year-old woman in 30th gestational week presented with severe pain in right hip and back of the right thigh. Piriformis block successfully decreased pain and was followed by pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) to the piriformis muscle. PRF, as a non-neurodestructive method, is a safe and effective method to treat cancer pain in a pregnant patient...

In recent years, brachial plexus anesthesia techniques for upper limb surgery have been used more and more commonly on children; however, the patient is typically under deep sedation or general anesthesia. For eligible, cooperative children, surgery can also be performed using regional blocks while the patient is awake. We present 5 cases in which Ultrasound (US)-guided infraclavicular brachial plexus blocks (ICB) were used on children for hand or forearm surgery. Surgical anesthesia was achieved in all patients and surgery was completed uneventfully using brachial plexus anesthesia, without need for deep sedation...

OBJECTIVES: The present study sought to compare the analgesic efficacy and adverse effects of intravenous (IV) lornoxicam and tramadol to investigate if lornoxicam is a reasonable alternative to a weak opioid for post-thyroidectomy pain. METHODS: Fifty patients of American Society of Anesthesiologists class I or II, 18 to 65 years of age, and who underwent thyroidectomy were assigned to 2 groups in a randomized manner. Group L received 8 mg of lornoxicam IV and Group T received 1 mg/kg of tramadol IV at conclusion of the operation...

OBJECTIVES: Pain is one of the most important symptoms in palliative care, and has a major impact on the quality of life of cancer patients. In developing countries, difficult access to opioids and the lack of well-established palliative care organizations result in undertreatment of pain. Turkey is one of the countries with statistical evidence of inadequate morphine consumption per capita. In 2010, the adequacy of opioid analgesic consumption was only 7%, based on a per capita consumption of 14...

OBJECTIVES: Migraine is a headache disorder affecting approximately 12% of the population, predominantly female individuals. Migraine has been associated with vascular events such as stroke and cardiovascular disease. The close connection between these vascular disorders and atherosclerosis is well known. Carotid artery intima-media thickness (CAIMT) is a marker for detection of subclinical atherosclerosis. The present study is an analysis of the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis in migraine patients...

Described in this article is diagnosis and treatment of mixed type of thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) resulting from scalene muscle hypertrophy. Many diseases should be considered in the differential diagnosis to definitively diagnose this syndrome, and it is necessary to ask about activities of daily life, in addition to adding provocative tests to physical examination and examining electrophysiological and imaging results. Once diagnosed, even if complaints decrease with conservative treatment, surgery may be required...

Horner syndrome is rarely observed in connection with epidural anesthesia. It is characterized by ptosis, enophthalmos, miosis, anisocoria, and conjunctival hyperemia in the affected eye, as well as anhydrosis and flushing on the affected side of the face. It is usually a complication spontaneously resolved without permanent neurological deficits. Intraoral anesthesia; stellate ganglion, cervical or brachial plexus blocks; thoracic, lumbar or caudal epidural anesthesia, and intrapleural analgesia are the main causes for Horner syndrome related to anesthesia...

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated the efficacy of patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) used by children with sickle cell anemia (SCA) based on the attitudes of parents and healthcare professionals. METHODS: A total of 86 individuals were involved in the study: 54 parents of children with SCA who were receiving treatment and 32 healthcare providers (doctors, nurses). To evaluate the effectiveness of the PCA method, a questionnaire was prepared to determine the level of knowledge of the participants about the PCA method and their perception of its advantages and disadvantages...

OBJECTIVES: Headache during migraine attack may recur during a single attack. The present study evaluated efficacy of both individual and combined use of agents from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and triptan groups widely used in treatment of migraine attacks. METHODS: A total of 201 attacks in 67 migraine patients were evaluated. Patients were divided into 3 study groups: those receiving rizatriptan 10mg, tenoxicam 20 mg, and rizatriptan + tenoxicam (combination)...

OBJECTIVES: A comparison was made of effects of preincisional intravenous (IV) dexketoprofen trometamol and acetaminophen on postoperative pain, analgesic requirement, hemodynamic parameters, postoperative tramadol consumption, and patient satisfaction in patients undergoing elective septorhinoplasty. METHODS: Sixty patients scheduled for elective septorhinoplasty under general anesthesia were divided into 3 groups. Groups were similar with respect to gender, mean age, body weight, mean duration of surgery and anesthesia (p>0...

OBJECTIVES: In the last two decades, mirror therapy has become a frequently used method of managing phantom limb pain (PLP). However, the role of nurses in mirror therapy has not yet been well defined. This study examined the effect of mirror therapy on the management of PLP, and discusses the importance of mirror therapy in the nursing care of amputee patients. METHODS: This quasi-experimental study was conducted in the pain management department of a university hospital and a prosthesis clinic in İstanbul, Turkey, with 15 amputee patients who had PLP...

Duchenne's muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a neuromuscular disease with a progressive course. It is the most common and most severe muscular dystrophic disorder for which the application of anesthesia is critical, due to muscle weakness, and cardiac and pulmonary involvement. Successful application of spinal anesthesia in a 2-year-old boy with DMD undergoing bilateral inguinal hernia repair is described in the present report. It is proposed that spinal anesthesia is an effective alternative to general anesthesia in certain pediatric patients, including those with DMD, for whom general anesthesia poses increased risk...

A 58-year-old woman was evaluated following complaints of pain in both lower extremities and brief involuntary movements in her toes, which had begun 2 years prior. No signs were present beyond a curling, flexion/extension, abduction/adduction movement in the toes of both lower extremities, voluntarily stoppable during neurologic examination. During investigation into etiology, lumbar vertebrae MRI revealed a posterior annular protrusion causing partial compression of the dural sac and neural elements by the L3-4 and L4-5 discs...
