  • Fingertip amputations treated with occlusive dressings. [Journal Article]
    Hand Surg Rehabil. 2019 09; 38(4):257-261.Boudard J, Loisel F, … Pluvy I
  • The aim of this study was to analyze a series of patients who suffered a distal finger amputation and who were treated with occlusive dressings. A retrospective study was done of 19 patients from a single hospital. At the review, an independent examiner evaluated the time required for wound healing, the number of occlusive dressings used, fingertip trophic skin changes, epicritic sensitivity usin…
  • The Slip Hypothesis: Tactile Perception and its Neuronal Bases. [Review]
    Trends Neurosci. 2016 07; 39(7):449-462.Schwarz C
  • The slip hypothesis of epicritic tactile perception interprets actively moving sensor and touched objects as a frictional system, known to lead to jerky relative movements called 'slips'. These slips depend on object geometry, forces, material properties, and environmental factors, and, thus, have the power to incorporate coding of the perceptual target, as well as perceptual strategies (sensor m…
  • Ipsilateral Facial Tactile Hypesthesia in a Patient with Lateral Medullary Syndrome. [Case Reports]
    J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis. 2015 Nov; 24(11):e315-7.Katsumata M, Oki K, … Suzuki N
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are two types of tactile sensation: epicritic and protopathic. Facial tactile sensation is usually thought to be associated with epicritic tactile sensation, which travels through principal sensory nuclei of the trigeminal nerve. The protopathic pathway travels down through the spinal tract via the trigeminal nerve and is not considered a primary pathway. However, in this case the protopathic tactile sensation pathway might be involved, and it caused facial tactile hypesthesia. Because most of previous case reports and literature reviews focused only on thermal/pain hypesthesia, we believe that this case provides critical information on the brainstem neuroanatomy, especially for the protopathic tactile sensation pathway in patients with stroke.
  • Skin grafted latissimus dorsi flap for reconstruction of lateral aesthetic units of the face. [Journal Article]
    Microsurgery. 2015 Mar; 35(3):177-82.Longo B, Laporta R, … Santanelli Di Pompeo F
  • Reconstruction of large defects of the lateral region of the face is rather challenging due to the unique color, texture, and thickness of soft tissues in this area. Microsurgical free flaps represent the gold standard, providing superior functional and aesthetic restoration. Purpose of this study was to assess reliability of skin-grafted latissimus dorsi (LD) flap, for a pleasant and symmetric r…
  • Epicritic sensation in cervical spinal cord injury: diagnostic gains beyond testing light touch. [Journal Article]
    J Neurotrauma. 2013 Aug 01; 30(15):1342-8.Velstra IM, Bolliger M, … Curt A
  • Abstract Applied as a bedside test of gross dorsal column function, the testing of light touch (LT) sensation is of high clinical value in the diagnosis of human spinal cord injury (SCI). However, the assessment of overall dorsal column deficit by testing only LT may be limited, because the dorsal column pathway conveys several large diameter afferent modalities (e.g., sensation of touch, two-poi…
  • Mechanoreceptivity of prehensile tail skin varies between ateline and cebine primates. [Journal Article]
    Anat Rec (Hoboken). 2011 Dec; 294(12):2064-72.Organ JM, Muchlinski MN, Deane AS
  • Prehensile tails evolved independently twice in primates: once in the ateline subfamily of platyrrhine primates and once in the genus Cebus. Structurally, the prehensile tails of atelines and Cebus share morphological features distinguishing them from nonprehensile tails (e.g., robust and strong caudal vertebrae, well developed lateral tail musculature, etc.). However, because of their independen…
  • Clinical Methods: The History, Physical, and Laboratory Examinations: Sensation [BOOK]
    . Butterworths: BostonWalker HK, Hall WD, … Hurst JWBigley GKBOOK
  • The sensory system provides information that places the individual in relation to the environment. Sensation may be classified into categories by various methods dependent on anatomic or functional criteria. An anatomic classification divides sensory function into somatic and visceral components with general and special subgroups of each. Clinically, however, only somatic sensation is easily meas…
  • Dr. Henry Head and lessons learned from his self-experiment on radial nerve transection. [Historical Article]
    J Neurosurg. 2011 Feb; 114(2):529-33.Lenfest SM, Vaduva-Nemes A, Okun MS
  • In this paper the authors aim to review Dr. Henry Head's famous and dramatic nerve sectioning experiment. They discuss the implications of his experimental approach as well as the effect his experiment had on the field of neurology. Henry Head was a prominent British neurologist who contributed greatly to the understanding of the sensory examination through an experiment in which he had his own r…
  • [Sensory function of FAMM flap: a report of 15 cases]. [Journal Article]
    Ann Chir Plast Esthet. 2009 Apr; 54(2):120-5.Wolber A, Mallet Y, … Lefebvre JL
  • CONCLUSIONS: This flap is very reliable and most often resensitizes. The low ligation of the artery during neck dissection does not jeopardize the survival (rich regional anastomoses). The FAMM flap makes up for the loss of medium size substance, it represents a very good solution between directed healing and more consistent skin flaps.
  • William Halse Rivers Rivers (1864-1922) and the sensory nervous system. [Historical Article]
    Eur Neurol. 2008; 60(4):208-11.Pearce JM
  • The polymath William Rivers played an important role in his work with Henry Head in demonstrating the varied, evolving patterns of sensory loss, and epicritic and protopathic sensation, after the section of the superficial ramus of Head's left radial nerve. After a mixed and frustrated army career Rivers devoted his attentions to shell shock and other psychological disturbances which were well re…
  • Some historical and epistemological remarks on itch and pruritus. [Historical Article]
    Dermatol Ther. 2005 Jul-Aug; 18(4):283-7.Terranova M, Guarneri C, … Lotti T
  • Although very common, itch is very hard to describe. It can be considered as one of the most distressing physical sensations we experience. Going back historically, old Latin and Greek writers cited it in ancient papers. So, etymology is of central importance to investigation in the field of itch, regarding the formation of a word with antique origins and different meanings. Scientists, poets, an…
  • [Spigelian hernia. Diagnosis and surgical treatment]. [Journal Article]
    G Chir. 2004 Apr; 25(4):134-6.Baccoli A, Manni P, … Tuveri A
  • Spigelian hernia (SH) is a rare partial abdominal wall defect; its manifestation is rare. Seven cases were observed--4 females and 3 males with mean age of 56.5 years (range 38-65)--in 857 patients operated for hernia (0.8%) between 1995 and 2003. Ultrasound examination avoid the diagnosis and marked the fascial defect, measuring diameter and sac contents. In all cases a surgical approach with an…
  • [Backache as the initial symptom of adrenomyeloneuropathy]. [Case Reports]
    Rev Neurol. 2000 Dec 16-31; 31(12):1167-70.Benito-León J, Zamorano T, … Alvarez-Linera J
  • CONCLUSIONS: The lumbago associated with adrenomyeloneuropathy is probably due to demyelination of the spinal tracts. Although lumbago is usually a benign condition, a careful history and examination is necessary in all such cases.
  • [Listeria monocytogenes rhomboencephalitis. Clinical case]. [Case Reports]
    Rev Med Chil. 1998 Jul; 126(7):828-32.Bravo M, Ferrer S, Trujillo S
  • We report a previously healthy 44 years old female, that presented with mild clouding of consciousness, a left cerebellar syndrome, involvement of V, X and XII left cranial nerves and an alteration of epicritic sensitivity in the left half of the body. Cerebrospinal fluid had inflammatory features. Cerebrospinal fluid and blood cultures were positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Magnetic resonance…
  • Persistent c-fos expression in the brains of mice with chronic social stress. [Journal Article]
    Neurosci Res. 1996 Oct; 26(2):157-70.Matsuda S, Peng H, … Sakanaka M
  • The present study was conducted to demonstrate immunohistochemically, the sites of c-fos protein expression in the brains of mice subjected to acute and chronic social defeat stress. To induce social stress, mice were placed in situations of species-specific intermale aggression either only once or five times at 24 h intervals. Two hours after the single or fifth defeat stress, many c-fos immunor…
  • The effect of age on A delta- and C-fibre thermal pain perception. [Journal Article]
    Pain. 1996 Jan; 64(1):143-52.Chakour MC, Gibson SJ, … Helme RD
  • It has been suggested that ageing may have a differential effect on C fibre-mediated protopathic/tonic pain versus epicritic/phasic pain perception mediated by A delta fibres. The present study attempted to independently assess age-related changes in the function of A delta- and C-nociceptive fibres by examining CO2 laser-induced thermal pain thresholds before, during and after a compression bloc…
  • [Treatment of leprotic neuritis. Exclusive medical treatment or combined with decompression]. [Review]
    Med Trop (Mars). 1993 Oct-Dec; 53(4):493-504.Carayon A, van Droogenbroeck J, … Naafs N
  • The authors consider the evolution of the treatment of leprotic neuritis based on homogenous series of numerous observations (a minimum of 250-300). These observations are well registered and documented with some results dimensioned by the classical A. L. E. R. T. tests carried out at intervals of time and verified by comparison between series only medical treatment and series of medico-surgical …
  • [Connective tissue massage]. [Review]
    Wien Klin Wochenschr. 1993; 105(8):220-7.Michalsen A, Bühring M
  • Connective tissue massage deals with the skin and the subcutaneous tissue. It focuses on definite regions of the body, assigned in segmental order to inner organ systems and structures of the locomotor system (spinal cord, joints, muscles). In case of acute disease, oedematous swelling of a generally soft tissue consistency can be observed in circumscribed areas. Persisting symptoms may result in…
  • [Headache in Horton's disease: the clinical picture and physiopathogenetic mechanisms]. [Journal Article]
    Recenti Prog Med. 1991 May; 82(5):282-5.Carmenini G, Soldini M, … Meloni F
  • Headache is no doubt one of the most frequent symptom in Horton's disease. Nevertheless it has neither received a clear definition nor it has been studied in its pathogenetic aspects. The authors report 32 cases of Horton's disease in acute phase with arteritic localizations in different areas. Among them 24 (75%) had headache which appeared with different features from case to case. The authors …
  • [Generalized arteriosclerosis and stent implantation. An epicritic report]. [Case Reports]
    Radiologe. 1991 Mar; 31(3):114-9.Richter GM, Nöldge G, … Tio F
  • In a comprehensive demonstration we report on the long-term course of the first patient in the world to receive a vascular balloon expandable endoprosthesis (Palmaz iliac vascular stent). Iliac occlusive disease became apparent again several years after an initially successful regular balloon angioplasty of the left common iliac artery. After successful stent implantation the patient then remaine…
