BACKGROUND: Epidural analgesia is a central nerve block technique achieved by injection of a local anaesthetic close to the nerves that transmit pain, and is widely used as a form of pain relief in labour. However, there are concerns about unintended adverse effects on the mother and infant. This is an update of an existing Cochrane Review (Epidural versus non-epidural or no analgesia in labour), last published in 2011. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness and safety of all types of epidural analgesia, including combined-spinal-epidural (CSE) on the mother and the baby, when compared with non-epidural or no pain relief during labour...

BACKGROUND: Epidural analgesia is a popular choice for labour pain relief. Patient satisfaction is an important patient-centric outcome because it can significantly influence both mother and child. However, there is limited evidence in the correlations between clinical determinants and patient satisfaction. We aim to investigate clinical covariates that are associated with low patient satisfaction in parturients receiving labour neuraxial analgesia. METHODS: After institutional ethics approval was obtained, we conducted a retrospective cohort study using electronic and corresponding hardcopy records from 10,170 parturients receiving neuraxial analgesia between the periods of January 2012 to December 2013 in KK Women's and Children's Hospital in Singapore...

OBJECTIVES: Transient neurological symptoms (TNS) after spinal anesthesia vary from dysesthesia that is hardly noticed to severe pain. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of TNS and provocative risk factors in 591 patients who underwent central block. METHODS: Before the operation, demographic data and features of the operation and the block were recorded. The patients were evaluated at postoperative 24 and 48 hours and day 7 with regard to TNS in the form of pain (headache, lower back and/or limb pain, backache, pain in the puncture region) and sensation disorders (paresthesia, hypoesthesia, hyperesthesia, anesthesia, dysesthesia)...

INTRODUCTION: Renal artery aneurysm (RAA) is a rare clinical entity with an estimated prevalence of 0.15% to 0.1%in the general population. The majority of patients present asymptomatically and the diagnosis is made incidentally during a hypertension study test, and more rarely, fortuitously after backache. Indications to treat have been subject of intense debate, nevertheless there seems to be some consensus that RAAs greater than 2 cm in diameter, expanding RAA, with thrombus or in pregnant women should be treated...

RATIONALE: Placenta accreta is the main cause of severe obstetric postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and hysterectomy. Several hemostatic techniques have been performed in patients with placenta accreta to prevent PPH and reserve fertility. Abdominal aorta and pelvic arteries balloon occlusion are the only techniques which could be performed before cesarean section (CS) in patients who want to keep the fetus and reserve fertility. However, abdominal aorta and pelvic arteries balloon occlusion might lead to severe complications such as formation and rupture of pseudoaneurysm, angiorrhexis, etc...

Choroid plexus papilloma is a rare intracranial neoplasm. These lesions most commonly present in the fourth ventricle in adults and lateral ventricle in children. Herein, we report a case of a 57-year-old male with complaint of backache of few weeks duration. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intradural and extramedullary space occupying lesion at D8 level. Histology showed multiple free-floating papillae with a central fibrovascular core. The cells showed immunoreactivity for vimentin, glial fibrillary acidic protein, synaptophysin, S-100 protein, and cytokeratins (CK, CK7)...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is an inherited disorder with osteoporosis and recurrent fractures. Children presenting with recurrent fractures and bowing of limbs have severe form of the disorder. Patients carrying homozygous WNT1 mutations have more frequent fractures while heterozygous carriers of the mutation in WNT1 gene are also found to have early onset osteoporosis. We identified a family with novel WNT1 mutation. The index case, a 6 month old child presented with fractures from early infancy. Next generation sequencing (NGS)done for the child didn't show any variations in other OI genes including COL1A1, COL1A2, SERPINH1, CRTAP, LEPRE1, PP1B, 1F1TM5 and BMP1 genes...

Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) was first isolated in humans in 1952, following an epidemic in Tanzania. The origin of the name means "to bend forward or become contorted," in reference to the posture adopted by patients due to the joint pain that occurs during the infection. Epidemiology data suggest that by the end of 2015, about 1.6 million people had been infected with CHIKV. The acute period of the disease is characterized by high fever, myalgia, joint pain, and severe and disabling polyarthritis, sometimes accompanied by headache, backache, and maculopapular rash, predominantly on the thorax...

A 19-year-old woman presented with a history of severe lower backache and asymmetric proximal lower limb weakness during the past 3 months. In addition, she also suffered from lower motor neuron-type bladder and bowel symptoms. On examination, paraparesis was noted. Further, sensory examination suggested patchy asymmetric sensory loss in both lower limbs with saddle anaesthesia and areflexia. A clinical diagnosis of Conus-Cauda syndrome was made and contrast-enhanced MRI of the lumbar and sacral spine was done, which confirmed the presence of a mass lesion within the spinal canal involving the cauda equina extending up to the sacral level...

Vitamin D has a crucial role in female reproduction, possibly through its effects on calcium homeostasis, cyclic sex steroid hormone fluctuations, or neurotransmitter function. We have assessed the effects of vitamin D supplementation on dysmenorrhea and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) in adolescents. In this study, 897 adolescent girls living in Mashhad and Sabzevar, Iran, received nine high-dose vitamin D supplements (as 50,000 IU/week of cholecalciferol) and were followed up over 9 weeks. We evaluated the effect of vitamin D supplementation on individuals in four categories: those with only PMS; individuals with only dysmenorrhea; subjects with both PMS and dysmenorrhea and normal subjects...
