Behavior is used to assess memory and cognitive deficits in animals like Fmr1-null mice that model Fragile X Syndrome, but behavior is a proxy for unknown neural events that define cognitive variables like recollection. We identified an electrophysiological signature of recollection in mouse dorsal Cornu Ammonis 1 (CA1) hippocampus. During a shocked-place avoidance task, slow gamma (SG) (30-50 Hz) dominates mid-frequency gamma (MG) (70-90 Hz) oscillations 2-3 s before successful avoidance, but not failures...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Persistent low back pain after initially successful surgery that is not attributed to structural deficits, is called failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS). When conservative and minimal invasive therapy fail, the recommended treatment is spinal cord stimulation (SCS). Because epidural fibrosis can be a contributing factor in the majority of FBSS patients, lumbosacral epiduroscopic lysis of adhesions may be considered as a less invasive alternative treatment option. We hypothesized that the use of epiduroscopic lysis of adhesions could reduce the need for SCS...

Platelet activation plays a central role in triggering and complicating acute coronary syndromes, especially in case of stent thrombosis and myocardial infarction. On top of aspirin, P2Y12-inhibitors are successfully used to treat and prevent these events for a duration of one year after an acute coronary episode or 6 months after drug-eluting stent implantation. However, patients with acute coronary syndromes remain at heightened risk for recurrent ischemic events after the recommended durations of P2Y12-inhibitors and therefore, prolonging treatment is often considered in clinical practice...

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common endocrine disorder with a variety of dermatologic manifestations among young women. Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis is a rare dermatosis of unknown etiology that is seldom reported in patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome. We describe the case of a young woman with obesity, confluent and reticulated papillomatosis, and concurrent acanthosis nigricans. Her history, physical examination, and laboratory evaluation led to the diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) present a defective activation of the alternate complement pathway that increases the risk of infection and is thought to predispose to autoimmune disease (AID). However, coexisting AID and SCD is rarely reported, suggesting possible underdiagnosis due to an overlapping of the symptoms. STUDY DESIGN: Among 603 patients with SCD followed between 1999 and June 2016, we retrospectively searched for patients with coexisting SCD and AID...

Although rituximab (RTX) is a promising therapeutic agent for treating steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) resistant to various immunosuppressive agents, some patients have shown resistance to RTX. We report the case of a patient with RTX-resistant nephrotic syndrome and SRNS who was successfully treated with leukocytapheresis (LCAP). After LCAP, there was a significant reduction in proteinuria and in the total number of lymphocytes, T cells, and HLA-DR+- activated T cells. Moreover, the patient became sensitive to steroids and RTX...

Gastrointestinal histoplasmosis is common in patients with disseminated disease affecting both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. However, it is often unrecognized due to a lack of specific signs and symptoms. It has only rarely been reported to cause small bowel obstruction, during which surgical treatment was nearly always necessary. Little is known about the usefulness of endoscopic therapy in gastrointestinal histoplasmosis associated strictures. We report the case of a 32-year-old man with a history of hyperimmunoglobulin M syndrome who presented with small bowel obstruction secondary to disseminated gastrointestinal histoplasmosis...

Medication overuse headache (MOH) is a secondary headache syndrome defined as the deterioration of the headache associated with the overuse of analgesics. The prevalence of MOH is 1-2% in the general population and even up to 50% in special clinics. Overuse of abortive medications is highly associated with chronic daily headaches and also a known risk factor for headache evolution. Possible mechanisms include neural plasticity changes such as sensitization and defective endogenous pain inhibition. Psychological studies have suggested dependence, even addiction, in patients with MOH...

In recent years, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been considered a novel option for the management of surgically high-risk patients requiring aortic valve replacement. Presently described is a case of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) managed with a challenging primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) shortly after a valve-in-valve TAVI intervention. This case highlights 2 important issues: PCI may be an option for the management of coronary heart disease in patients after TAVI even in the setting of demanding features associated with coronary osteal engagement, and secondly, TAVI may serve as a potential risk factor for future coronary ischemic syndromes, largely due to its potential adverse effects on coronary flow dynamics, etc...

Melnick-Needles syndrome (MNS) is a rare congenital X-linked dominant skeletal dysplasia, characterized by exophthalmos, a prominent forehead, and mandibular hypoplasia and retrognathism. Dental features may include anodontia, hypodontia, or oligodontia. Increased collagen content, unpredictable collagen synthesis, and abnormal bony architecture have raised concerns regarding bone splitting intraoperatively and bone healing postoperatively. This report describes the cases of two sisters with MNS, who successfully underwent orthognathic surgery consisting of bilateral mandibular ramus osteotomies combined with advancement genioplasty and iliac crest bone grafting, to correct the classical MNS facial deformity of mandibular retrognathia...

Dietary restriction of fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAPs) is effective in the management of functional gastrointestinal symptoms that occur in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Numerous reviews have been published regarding the evidence for their restriction in the low FODMAP diet; however, few reviews discuss the implementation of the low FODMAP diet in practice. The aim of this review is to provide practical guidance on patient assessment and the implementation and monitoring of the low FODMAP diet...

BACKGROUND: Attempts to introduce prognostic factors for survival outcomes in localized colorectal cancer patients receiving surgical treatment with or without adjuvant therapies, beyond the classic staging parameters, have been met with limited success. Obesity and diabetes mellitus are among the conditions that predispose to colorectal cancer but their value as prognostic markers once the disease is diagnosed is controversial. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study examines the prognostic value of the components of metabolic syndrome in a retrospective series of colorectal cancer patients with stages I to III disease followed in a single center...

We describe a 47-year-old male who was admitted to our centre from a local emergency unit with septic shock due to suspected Boerhaave syndrome. After the diagnosis was confirmed, the patient underwent emergency surgery. Postoperatively, the patient had symptoms of acute alcoholic delirium, and developed an oesophagomediastinal fistula as the most serious local complication. Successful conservative treatment enabled complete healing of the fistula, leading to patient recovery. No late complications like oesophageal stenosis were found at 6 months from discharge...
