  • Physical abuse is associated with HIV-related drug risk.

The relationship between sexual abuse and risky behavior has been well established in the literature, but the association between physical abuse and risky drug use has been equivocal. We hypothesize that the experience of PTSD symptoms following physical abuse leads to risky drug use. Therefore, we examined the associations among physical abuse history, PTSD symptoms, and HIV-related drug risk in a sample of 121 opioid-dependent persons to determine whether PTSD symptoms mediated the relationship between physical abuse history and drug risk. Participants were recruited during an acute care hospital inpatient stay. Physical abuse history was associated with increased drug risk, and PTSD symptoms were associated with increased drug risk. However, PTSD symptoms were not found to be a mediator of the association between physical abuse history and HIV-related drug risk. These findings highlight the importance of assessing abuse history in high-risk samples of opioid users.

  • The influence of anesthesia and pain management on cognitive dysfunction after joint arthroplasty: a systematic review.
  • Zywiel MG1, Prabhu A, Perruccio AV, Gandhi R.Author information 1Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, 399 Bathurst Street, 446, 1 East Wing, Toronto, ON, M5T 2S8, Canada, mike.zywiel@mail.utoronto.ca.AbstractBACKGROUND: Despite the overall success of total joint arthroplasty, patients undergoing this procedure remain susceptible to cognitive decline and/or delirium, collectively termed postoperative cognitive dysfunction. However, no consensus exists as to whether general or regional anesthesia results in a lower likelihood that a patient may experience this complication, and controversy surrounds the role of pain management strategies to minimize the incidence of postoperative cognitive dysfunction.

  • Imaging of thymus in myasthenia gravis: From thymic hyperplasia to thymic tumor.
  • Priola AM1, Priola SM2.Author information 1Department of Diagnostic Imaging, San Luigi Gonzaga University Hospital, Orbassano, Torino, Italy. Electronic address: adriano.priola@inwind.it.2Department of Diagnostic Imaging, San Luigi Gonzaga University Hospital, Orbassano, Torino, Italy.AbstractMyasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder often associated with thymic abnormalities. At onset, thymic lymphoid hyperplasia (TLH) and thymoma can be found in up to 65% and 15% of patients, respectively. Diagnostic imaging is crucial in this setting in order to detect the presence and type of the thymic abnormality and in the preoperative planning, when indicated. Chest radiography has a minor role due to its low accuracy. Computed tomography is the imaging modality of choice, although the differentiation between a small thymoma and TLH that appears as a focal soft-tissue mass may be not possible. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is not usually employed, but it is useful in equivocal cases, especially in differentiating focal TLH from thymoma by using chemical-shift sequences for defining the proper management. In addition, diffusion-weighted (DW)-MRI can differentiate lipid-poor normal/hyperplastic thymus from thymoma and could be useful in differentiating non-advanced from advanced thymomas. Positron emission tomography (PET)-CT is not helpful in distinguishing early from advanced thymoma but can be used to differentiate thymic carcinoma from thymoma. Hereby, we discuss the imaging features of thymic abnormalities in MG, even focusing on novel aspects of chemical-shift and DW-MRI.

  • Purinoceptors exert negative inotropic effects on the heart in all major groups of reptiles.
  • Joyce W1, Gesser H2, Wang T2.Author information 1Zoophysiology, Department of Biosciences, Aarhus University, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark; Faculty of Life Sciences, The University of Manchester, M13 9PT, UK. Electronic address: william.joyce@student.manchester.ac.uk.2Zoophysiology, Department of Biosciences, Aarhus University, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark.AbstractThe few and fragmentary studies on purinergic regulation of the reptile heart have reached equivocal conclusions. Indeed, unlike fish, amphibians, and mammals, it has been suggested that the turtle heart lacks purinoceptors. Here, we study the effect of adenosine and ATP on isolated heart strips from three species of reptiles: the red-eared slider (Trachemys scripta), the ball python (Python regius) and the spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus). Both adenosine and ATP markedly decreased contractility in atria from all three species. This was attenuated by theophylline, suggesting that the response is mediated by P1 receptors. Ventricles were less sensitive, although high concentrations of the adenyl compounds evoked decreases in contractility. Our study suggests that cardiac purinoceptors are ubiquitous across reptiles, and may play an important and underappreciated role in reptile cardiovascular physiology.
