Suggested Case Studies

  • How to manage this case?
    22 yrs male. intermittent inflammation and pain for 4 yrs, aggravated be entry of mud/dust. Comments?
  • Survival of the fittest
    This woman got pregnant after 8 years long wait and after 24 weeks one of the babies was diagnosed dead. See ultrasound image. The ultrasound shows two separate placentae. Fetus on maternal right side is noted without cardiac activity. Nearly absent liquor around this fetus. Fetus on materal left side is alive as normal liquor can be seen around this fetus.
  • Young pt. with frequent falls

    Researchers restore leg movement in primates. It's a step towards the development of a system that might help in rehabilitating people who have suffered spinal cord injuries. An international team of scientists has used a wireless “brain-spinal interface” to bypass spinal cord injuries in a pair of rhesus macaques, restoring intentional walking movement to a temporarily paralysed leg. The research, published in Nature, reveals that this is the first time a neural prosthetic has been used to restore walking movement directly to the legs of nonhuman primates. “The system we have developed uses signals recorded from the motor cortex of the brain to trigger coordinated electrical stimulation of nerves in the spine that are responsible for locomotion. With the system turned on, the animals in our study had nearly normal locomotion,” said David Borton, assistant professor of engineering at Brown. The work could help in developing a similar system designed for humans who have had spinal cord injuries. “There is evidence to suggest that a brain-controlled spinal stimulation system may enhance rehabilitation after a spinal cord injury. This is a step toward further testing that possibility,” Borton said. Injury to the upper spine can cut off communication between the brain and lower spinal cord. Both the motor cortex and the spinal neurons may be fully functional, but they are unable to coordinate their activity. The goal of the study was to re-establish some of that communication. While demonstrating that the system works in a non-human primate is an important step, the researchers stressed that much more work must be done to begin testing the system in humans. “We would want to do more quantification about how balanced the animal is during walking and measure the forces they’re able to apply,” Borton said. The research sets the stage for future studies. “There’s an adage in neuroscience that circuits that fire together wire together. The idea is that by engaging the brain and the spinal cord, we may be able to enhance the growth of circuits during rehabilitation. That's one of our key goals," Borton said.
