A 45-year-old Caucasian woman was referred for investigation of recurrent chest infections. She had been treated over the previous 9 months for recurrent symptoms characterised by intermittent episodes of dyspnoea, cough productive of green sputum and pleuritic chest pain. Systemic enquiry was unremarkable; specifically, she had not experienced any weight loss or anorexia. On each episode, oxygen saturations were >94% and heart rate was <100 beats/min, with a single occurrence of a low-grade fev...

Lumbar puncture (LP) is a key diagnostic investigation in neurology. Post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) is a known complication of lumbar puncture, resulting in significant patient morbidity. Fine-gauge and atraumatic-tip needles have been shown to reduce significantly the risk of PDPH. While uptake of such needles has been universal in anaesthetics, neurology has lagged behind. Here we investigate a multimodal intervention to increase the usage of atraumatic needles in neurology. Over a 15 mon...

AbstractWe present the long-term course of motor cortex stimulation to relieve a case of severe burning phantom arm pain after brachial plexus injury and amputation. During 16-year follow-up the device continued to provide efficacious analgesia. However, several adjustments of stimulation parameters were required, as were multiple pulse generator changes, antibiotics for infection and one electrode revision due to lead migration. Steady increases in stimulation parameters over time were required...
