OBJECTIVENeurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (nTOS) is an uncommon compression syndrome of the brachial plexus that presents with pain, sensory changes, and motor weakness in the affected limb. The authors reviewed the clinical presentations and outcomes in their series of pediatric patients with surgically treated nTOS over a 6-year period.METHODSCases of nTOS in patients age 18 years or younger were extracted for analysis from a prospective database of peripheral nerve operations.… Read More...

Dlamini, N., Saunders, D. E., Bynevelt, M., Trompeter, S., Cox, T. C., Bucks, R. S., Kirkham, F. J. November 11, 2017

Objective:

The purpose of this study of sickle cell disease (SCD) was to determine whether arteriopathy, measurable as intracranial vessel signal loss on magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), was associated with low nocturnal hemoglobin oxygen saturation (SpO2) or hemolytic rate, measurable as reticulocytosis or unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia.… Read More...

Objective:

To evaluate whether genetic variants in β-amyloid (Aβ) clearance proteins are associated with CSF levels of Aβ1-42 on a biological level and the onset of dementia on a clinical level in Parkinson disease (PD).

Methods:

We analyzed genetic variants known to be involved in Aβ clearance in a PD group comprising 456 patients, 103 of them with dementia.… Read More...

OBJECTIVEChiari malformation Type I (CM-I) is typically defined on imaging by a cerebellar tonsil position ≥ 5 mm below the foramen magnum. Low cerebellar tonsil position is a frequent incidental finding on brain or cervical spine imaging, even in asymptomatic individuals.… Read More...
