Kiyoshi Yoshida, Hidehiko Kawabata
We investigated the prognostic value of concurrent Horner syndrome for predicting spontaneous motor recovery in surgical decision making at 3 months with neonatal brachial plexus palsy. Medical records of 129 neonates with total-type brachial plexus palsy were reviewed, and clinical and follow-up data of patients with or without Horner syndrome were compared. Twenty-seven of 129 newborn babies with total-type palsy (21%) had concurrent Horner syndrome. Poor spontaneous motor recovery was observed in 21 (78%) neonates with concurrent Horner syndrome and in 84 (82%) without concurrent Horner syndrome...

Kazutoshi Kubota, Katsuhisa Sunada
Background: A stellate ganglion block (SGB) causes increased blood flow in the maxillofacial region, exhibiting the potential for regenerative effects in damaged tissue. The focus of this study was to understand the efficacy of SGB for regenerative effects against nerve damage. A rat model of the superior cervical ganglion block (SCGB) was created instead of SGB, and facial blood flow, as well as sympathetic nervous system function, were measured. Methods: A vertical incision was made on the left side of the neck of a Wistar rat, and a 5-mm resection of the superior cervical ganglion was performed at the back of the bifurcation of the internal and external branches of the left common carotid artery...

INTRODUCTION: Subclavian artery pseudoaneurysms are rare and occur mostly as a consequence of an inadvertent arterial puncture during central venous catheterization, endovascular therapeutic procedures or after penetrating or blunt trauma. They usually have a late clinical presentation, with pain, swelling or other compressive symptoms. The optimal treatment in this situation is still a matter of debate. The authors describe a case of late presentation of subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm after transjugular hepatic biopsy and discuss the several options for treatment...

Mutations in SIL1 , a co-factor for the endoplasmic reticular (ER) chaperone BiP, cause Marinesco-Sjögren syndrome (MSS), an autosomal recessive disorder. Using a mouse model, we characterized molecular aspects of the progressive myopathy associated with MSS. Proteomic-profiling of quadriceps at the onset of myopathy revealed that SIL1 deficiency affected multiple pathways critical to muscle physiology. We observed an increase in ER chaperones prior to the onset of muscle weakness, which was complemented by up-regulation of multiple components of cellular protein degradation pathways...

D J Chambers, K Bhatia
Horner's syndrome is a rarely reported complication of neuraxial blockade. In obstetric practice, the neurological signs of Horner's syndrome may cause anxiety amongst patients and healthcare staff, but more importantly may herald the onset of maternal hypotension. Medline, CINAHL, and EMBASE databases were searched to identify cases of Horner's syndrome following obstetric neuraxial blockade. Anaesthetic technique, clinical features, anaesthetic management of the Horner's syndrome and time to resolution were assessed...

OBJECTIVE: Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy at the second rib level is considered effective as a therapeutic treatment for facial blushing. However, 10% to 15% of patients do not benefit from this intervention. No additional procedure has been developed for this disorder. Recently, ganglionectomy using application of laser speckle flow graph has been evaluated for the treatment of compensatory sweating. We report our results of ganglionectomy for facial blushing as a redo surgery. METHODS: Between August 2012 and April 2017, 8 patients with facial blushing who underwent an initial sympathectomy reported symptom recurrence...

BACKGROUND: Multiple case studies have suggested that video-assisted thoracoscopic sympathectomy (VATS) reduces the occurrence and frequency of symptoms in long QT syndrome (LQTS) [1,2,3]. To date there has not been a literature review to report on the short-term and long-term outcomes of this procedure. Our primary aims are to review the literature findings on the clinical outcomes of VATS sympathectomy for long QT and present a local centre case report on the outcomes of T2-T5 sympathectomy...

Good's syndrome, the adult onset hypogammaglobulinemia associated with thymoma has been explained about six decades ago. It generally presents with recurrent infections and several paraneoplastic syndromes including myasthenia gravis, pure red cell aplasia, connective tissue disorders, superior vena cava, Horner's syndrome, lichen planus and inflammatory bowel disease. Lack of B cell, dysfunction of T cell, CD4+ T cell lymphopenia, reversed CD4/CD8+ T cell ratio, autoantibodies against Th17 related cytokines have been respected as the pathogenesis of the immune dysregulation this syndrome...

Decreased height of the eyelid or the narrowing of the lid is called ptosis. Ptosis has several causes. Malignancy-related conditions such as Horner's syndrome, which causes unilateral ptosis in the pediatric age group, and patients with malignancy receiving chemotherapeutic treatment, are often secondary to these drugs and ptosis is a clue of underlying diseases. Underlying pathologies can lead to different clinical conditions such as cognitive impairment from coma, the presence of ptosis should be cautionary...
