Objectives Recently, it has been confirmed, that excess fluid and waste products from the brain are drained into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and afterwards cleared via the olfactory route and/or lymphatic vessels in the brain dura and corresponding extracranial lymphatic structures. Therefore, the aim of present study was to monitor time-dependent uptake of Evans blue (EB) tracer from subarachnoid space into the meningeal lymphatic vessels and extracranial lymph nodes in rats during 3 hours-12 days. Methods EB was injected into the cisterna magna of anesthetized rats and after required survival, plasma, brain dura matter and corresponding lymph nodes (cervical, thoracic and lumbar) were dissected and processed for lymphatic vessels analyses using immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry...

BACKGROUND Hiccup is a rare complication after a cervical epidural steroid injection used in the treatment of chronic pain. A few studies have reported on the physiological and pharmacological aspects of hiccups after epidural steroid injection and there have been some case reports published. Our presented case report provides insight into the side effect of hiccups that can occur in association with cervical epidural analgesia, and will help inform anesthesiologist about this unpleasant complication. CASE REPORT We present a rare case of persistent hiccups after a cervical epidural steroid injection in a 60-year-old male patient with chronic pain due to disc protrusion in C3-C7...

OBJECTIVE: The cervical carotid segment is routinely used as donor site for high flow bypass procedures. The horizontal petrous segment would offer a shorter graft distance, complete graft protection intracranially and avoid the need for surgical neck exposure. In a morphometric cadaveric study we aim to investigate variations of the petrous carotid anatomy, especially the incidence of bony dehiscence of the roof of the horizontal petrous carotid segment canal, which may facilitate exposure of the vessel and thereby potentially lower the morbidity of high flow bypass procedures...

Over 62 million women in the United States are of childbearing age and 60% of them use contraception. Subcutaneous contraceptives include implantable contraceptives and subcutaneous injections. Implantable contraception involves subdermal time-release of synthetic progestin, which allows for several years of continuous, highly effective contraception. Its main effects are inhibition of ovulation and thickening of the cervical mucus. Many complications have been associated with subcutaneous contraception, including menstrual disturbances, headache, weight gain, acne, dizziness, mood disturbances, nausea, lower abdominal pain, hair loss, loss of libido, pain at the implant site, neuropathy, and follicular cysts...

Months after the occurrence of spinal cord dorsal column lesions (DCLs) at the cervical level, neural responses in the hand representation of somatosensory area 3b hand cortex recover, along with hand use. To examine whether the second-order spinal cord pathway contributes to this functional recovery, we injected cholera toxin subunit B (CTB) into the hand representation in the cuneate nucleus (Cu) to label the spinal cord neurons, and related results to cortical reactivation in four squirrel monkeys ( Saimiri boliviensis ) at least 7 months after DCL...

The tumor microenvironment is one of the key factors contributing to the efficiency of drug delivery to a tumor. It has been reported that lymphangiogenesis is induced in certain tumors. Because the lymphatic system functions as a drainage one, it is possible that tumor lymphatic vessels alter not only the tumor microenvironment, but also the distribution of drug nanocarriers accumulated in the tumor tissue. Herein, we aimed to elucidate the involvement of the tumor lymphatic system in the translocation of intratumoral liposomes to regional lymph nodes by using vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-C-overexpressing B16F10 tumor-bearing mice (B16/VEGF-C)...

The identification of epidural space with loss of resistance (LOR) is commonly performed. But it lacks specificity. Epidural pressure waveform analysis (EPWA) provides a simple confirmative adjunct for LOR. If the needle is located within the epidural space, measurement of the pressure at its tips shows a pulsatile waveform. Previous studies demonstrated satisfactory sensitivity and specificity of EPWA. However, success or failure of epidural injection was confirmed by the pinprick test, which is limited for patients in the setting of the pain clinic...

The sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) to brown adipose tissue (BAT) regulates BAT thermogenesis to defend body temperature in cold environments or to produce fever during immune responses. The vagus nerve contains afferents that inhibit the BAT SNA and BAT thermogenesis evoked by skin cooling. We sought to determine whether activation of TRPV1 channels in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), which are prominently expressed in unmyelinated vagal afferents, would affect cold-evoked BAT thermogenesis, cardiovascular parameters, or their vagal afferent-evoked responses...

The mechanism for fetal heart rate abnormalities following spinal opioids remains controversial. We evaluated uterine tone, using an intra-uterine pressure catheter, and fetal heart rate abnormalities in 30 women in spontaneous labour with cervical dilation of 3-5 cm having combined spinal-epidural analgesia. Women were randomly assigned to receive a spinal with 2.0 mg hyperbaric bupivacaine plus 15 μg fentanyl, or 2.5 mg hyperbaric bupivacaine. The primary outcome measure was an increase > 10 mmHg in baseline uterine tone in the 30-min period following spinal injection...

Interlaminar lumbar puncture and cervical puncture may not be ideal in all circumstances. Recently, we have used a transforaminal approach in selected situations. Between May 2016 and December 2017, twenty-six transforaminal lumbar punctures were performed in 9 patients (25 CT-guided, 1 fluoroscopy-guided). Seven had spinal muscular atrophy and were referred for intrathecal nusinersen administration. In 2, CT myelography was performed via transforaminal lumbar puncture. The lumbar posterior elements were completely fused in 8, and there was an overlying abscess in 1...

Younghoon Jeon, Saeyoung Kim
BACKGROUND: Transforaminal epidural injection (TFEI) with local anesthetics and steroids are effective in treating spinal radicular pain. However, inadvertent intravascular injection can lead to severe neurologic complications. To reduce complications of intravascular injection, use of imaging modality, such as real-time fluoroscopy (RTF) or digital subtraction angiography (DSA), has been recommended. DSA is an imaging technique that can clearly visualize the blood vessels from surrounding bones or dense soft tissues by subtracting the pre-contrast image from the image after injecting contrast medium...

Olivia Samotus, Jack Lee, Mandar Jog
BACKGROUND: Botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) injections is the accepted first-line therapy for cervical dystonia (CD), however, numerous patients discontinue treatment early due to perceived sub-optimal relief. To improve BoNT-A therapy for CD, proper assessment of neck motion and selection of relevant muscles and dosing must be met. Kinematic technology may improve treatment outcomes by guiding physicians to better tailor muscle selection and BoNT-A dosing for CD therapy. METHODS: 28 CD participants were placed into either group: expert injector determined injection patterns by visual assessment ("vb") versus injection patterns based on kinematics interpreted by an expert injector ("kb")...
