141. Systemic Adjuvant Therapy for Adult Patients at High Risk for Recurrent Melanoma

Oncology [8]). In the absence of complete lymphadectomy, some patients with positive sentinel lymph nodes assigned as stage IIIA or IIIB may be understaged. These trials and recommendations regarding axillary resection do not apply to patients with clinically positive lymph nodes (by palpation or radiologic investigation), and the standard of care is dissection of lymph nodes in that area (axillary, groin, or head and neck) prior to adjuvant therapy or adjuvant radiotherapy. In the case of unresectable (...) version 5 Section 2: Guideline Page 7 area (axillary, groin, or head and neck) prior to adjuvant therapy or adjuvant radiotherapy. In the case of unresectable disease, up-front systemic therapy should be considered. ? Patient inclusion in these trials was based on the AJCC 7 th edition, which subdivides stage III into IIIA, IIIB, and IIIC groups. The AJCC 8 th edition now in effect has an additional IIID category; with revised criteria for stage III substages there will be stage migration. For example

142. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for osteonecrosis

adequate blood supply, the body will not be able to form new bone when old bone tissue dies. If this process continues without treatment, bone structure can collapse. Osteonecrosis is most common in the femoral head in the hip joint but may also occur in the shoulder, knee, ankle, hand, foot and jaw. Osteonecrosis may occur spontaneously, without known cause (idiopathic osteonecrosis), as a complication of, for example, drug use, radiation therapy, high alcohol consumption or disease (secondary (...) osteonecrosis) or following an injury (traumatic osteonecrosis). The total incidence of osteonecrosis in Norway is unknown, but osteonecrosis was the primary cause of 226 of almost 9000 primary hip prosthesis surgeries in 2016. The Norwegian health service has no clear guidelines for treatment strategies at early stages of osteonecrosis. Possible treatments are surgery or non-surgical measures such as drug treatment, rest, shockwave therapy, pulse electromagnetic fields and hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Medication-overuse headache: finally, we have an intervention that works. Medication-overuse headache: finally, we have an intervention that works. | JNNP blog by Headache. Common, painful, frustrating, exhausting- and that’s just what the neurologist feels when a headache patient walks in the room. The patients themselves are often at their wits end as headache, whatever the cause, is often functional incapacitating and can really ruin quality of life. Of all the headache types that are seen (...) in neurology, medication-overuse headache (MOH) can be particularly challenging. The condition typically occurs in patients who take frequent large quantities of acute headache treatments, including over-the –counter drugs. The problem here is that these patients often are taking these tablets for another headache condition such as migraine. After taking large amounts of these acute treatments over long periods of time, their migraine symptoms often tend to morph with MOH symptoms and it can be very hard

144. Relationship of the Lateral Rectus Muscle, the Supraorbital Nerve, and Binocular Coordination with Episodic Tension-Type Headaches Frequently Associated with Visual Effort. Full Text available with Trip Pro

-oculography system. Tests were performed before work began and four hours later, and subjects in the headache group were examined when they presented a headache score of less than or equal to 3 on the verbal numerical scale.The headache group presented a greater sensitivity of the supraorbital nerve and greater local and referred pain of the lateral rectus ( P  < 0.05). Visual effort caused a significant worsening of these variables in both groups. However, binocular coordination after visual effort (...) was only significantly affected in the headache group ( P  < 0.05), primarily in horizontal movements.The finding of a higher alteration of the sensitivity of the supraorbital nerve, the myofascial trigger points of the lateral rectus, binocular coordination, and the significant influence of visual effort in patients with tension-type headaches suggest a new clinical perspective for problems related to tension-type headaches.© 2017 American Academy of Pain Medicine.

undertook a prospective, observational study at a tertiary academic medical center examining the clinical characteristics of the presenting headache in SAH. We enrolled patients through the emergency department and from the neurosciences intensive care unit, and documented clinical features of the headache including the time to peak intensity, location, associated symptoms, and activities that caused worsening.One hundred and fifty-eight subjects were enrolled, of whom 20 patients had SAH and 138 did (...) Distinguishing Characteristics of Headache in Nontraumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a life-threatening emergency that is frequently missed due to its varied and often subtle presentation. The most common presentation of SAH is with a severe headache. The classical adjective used in SAH is "thunderclap"; however, this has not been well defined in the literature, rendering it a challenge to triage patients in clinical practice presenting with severe headache.We

149. Orofacial pain and headaches associated with exfoliation glaucoma. (Abstract)

Orofacial pain and headaches associated with exfoliation glaucoma. Exfoliation syndrome is the most common identifiable cause of open-angle glaucoma. The authors report a case of exfoliation glaucoma in a patient who had orofacial pain.A 77-year-old woman was treated at the orofacial pain clinic for left-sided facial pain and headaches of 7 months' duration. Her cataracts and open-angle glaucoma had been diagnosed approximately 3 years earlier. Her main symptoms were orofacial pain, eye redness (...) underwent surgical treatment for the glaucoma and cataracts. After surgery, she was free of symptoms, and intraocular pressure was 15 mm Hg in the left eye.During differential diagnosis, dentists need to consider intraoral and systemic conditions that can mimic odontogenic or orofacial pain disorders in the patient's medical history and that have a higher incidence associated with the patient's age.Copyright © 2017 American Dental Association.

Migraine headache in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension Migraine is a neurological disorder that afflicts many people in the world and can cause severe disability during the attacks. The pathophysiology of migraine is complex and not fully understood. It seems that migraine is common in idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). However, the association between migraine headache and IIH is still unclear. The present study was conducted to assess the prevalence of migraine (...) headache and associated factors in IIH patients. In this cross-sectional study, a total of 68 patients diagnosed with IIH underwent a medical history interview and a neurological examination.

Extracranial origin of headache To summarize recent clinical and preclinical studies on extracranial pathophysiologies in migraine. It challenges the opinion-based notion that the headache phase of migraine occurs without input from peripheral nociceptors or is caused solely by activation of intracranial nociceptors supplying dural and cerebral vasculature.Data that support a scenario by which migraine can originate extracranially include the perception of imploding headache that hurts outside (...) the calvaria reduces frequency of migraine headache.These findings seeks to shift clinical practice from prophylactically treating chronic migraine solely with medications that reduce neuronal excitability to treating irritated nociceptors or affected tissues. The findings also seeks to shift current research from focusing solely on central nervous system alterations and activation of meningeal nociceptors as a prerequisite for studying migraine.
