  • Abdominal skeletal muscle activity precedes spontaneous menstrual cramping pain in primary dysmenorrhea. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Obstet Gynecol 2018 May 04
  • Oladosu FA, Tu FF, … Hellman KM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Abdominal muscle activity may contribute to cramping pain in primary dysmenorrhea, but is resolvable with naproxen. Dysmenorrheic patients without cramp-associated abdominal muscle activity exhibit widespread pain sensitivity (lower pressure pain thresholds) and are more likely to also have a chronic pain diagnosis, suggesting their cramps are linked to changes in central pain processes. This preliminary study suggests new tools to phenotype menstrual pain and supports the hypothesis that multiple distinct mechanisms may contribute to dysmenorrhea.
  • Symmetrical and bilateral basal ganglia calcification. Case series and literature review. [Journal Article]
  • GMGac Med Mex 2018; 154(2):258-262
  • Jiménez-Ruiz A, Cárdenas-Sáenz O, Ruiz-Sandoval JL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ganglia calcification can be associated with age-related neurodegenerative changes, but it can be an initial manifestation of a variety of systemic pathologies, including disorders of the calcium metabolism, intoxication by different agents, and autoimmune and genetic diseases. Correlation of typical imaging findings with clinical manifestations and laboratory results should be established to reach a definitive judgment.
