BACKGROUND: Patients in a minimally conscious state (MCS) show restricted self or environment awareness but are unable to communicate consistently and reliably. Therefore, better understanding of cerebral noxious processing in these patients is of clinical, therapeutic, and ethical relevance. METHODS: We studied brain activation induced by bilateral electrical stimulation of the median nerve in five patients in MCS (aged 18-74 years) compared with 15 controls (19-64 years) and 15 patients (19-75 years) in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) with (15)O-radiolabelled water PET. By way of psychophysiological interaction analysis, we also investigated the functional connectivity of the primary somatosensory cortex (S1) in patients and controls. Patients in MCS were scanned 57 (SD 33) days after admission, and patients in PVS 36 (9) days after admission. Stimulation intensities were 8.6 (SD 6.7) mA in patients in MCS, 7.4 (5.9) mA in controls, and 14.2 (8.7) mA in patients in PVS. Significant results were thresholded at p values of less than 0.05 and corrected for multiple comparisons. FINDINGS: In patients in MCS and in controls, noxious stimulation activated the thalamus, S1, and the secondary somatosensory or insular, frontoparietal, and anterior cingulate cortices (known as the pain matrix). No area was less activated in the patients in MCS than in the controls. All areas of the cortical pain matrix showed greater activation in patients in MCS than in those in PVS. Finally, in contrast with patients in PVS, those in MCS had preserved functional connectivity between S1 and a widespread cortical network that includes the frontoparietal associative cortices. INTERPRETATION: Cerebral correlates of pain processing are found in a similar network in controls and patients in MCS but are much more widespread than in patients in PVS. These findings might be objective evidence of a potential pain perception capacity in patients in MCS, which supports the idea that these patients need analgesic treatment. [less ▲]

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is the most severe iatrogenic complication of fertilization modern methods. This syndrome is characterized by a massive cystic ovarian enlargement associated with an acute body fluid shift. Ascite is the most frequent manifestation of this syndrome. In some rare cases ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is complicated by massive unilateral pleural effusion without ascite. We describe the case of a 36 year old woman who developed a massive unilateral pleural effusion without ascite. An ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome was diagnosed. Chest tube drainage improved patient parameters and symptoms. We discuss the diagnostic approach of pleural effusions. [less ▲]

In acute pulmonary embolism, right ventricular (RV) failure may result from exceeding myocardial contractile resources with respect to the state of vascular afterload. We investigated the adaptation of RV performance in a porcine model of progressive pulmonary embolism. Twelve anesthetized pigs were randomly divided into two groups: gradual pulmonary arterial pressure increases by three injections of autologous blood clot (n = 6) or sham-operated controls (n = 6). Right ventricular pressure-volume (PV) loops were recorded using a conductance catheter. Right ventricular contractility was estimated by the slope of the end-systolic PV relationship (Ees). Afterload was referred to as pulmonary arterial elastance (Ea) and assessed using a four-element Windkessel model. Right ventricular-arterial coupling (Ees/Ea) and efficiency of energy transfer (from PV area to external mechanical work [stroke work]) were assessed at baseline and every 30 min for 4 h. Eaincreased progressively after embolization, from 0.26 +/- 0.04 to 2.2 +/- 0.7 mmHg mL (P < 0.05). Ees increased from 1.01 +/-0.07 to 2.35 +/- 0.27 mmHg mL (P < 0.05) after the first two injections but failed to increase any further. As a result, Ees/Ea initially decreased to values associated with optimal SW, but the last injection was responsible for Ees/Ea values less than 1, decreased stroke volume, and RV dilation. Stroke work/PV area consistently decreased with each injection from 79% +/- 3% to 39% +/- 11% (P < 0.05). In response to gradual increases in afterload, RV contractility reserve was recruited to a point of optimal coupling but submaximal efficiency. Further afterload increases led to RV-vascular uncoupling and failure. [less ▲]

Mortality remains high in intensive care patients with renal failure requiring extra corporeal blood purification. This article reviews the recent data that have led to the improvement of the care for such patients. We will discuss the criteria to determine the choice of the technique (intermittent or continuous), of the membrane, of the prescribing dose, and the type of anticoagulation and when to initiate such a treatment.

Although reperfusion after coronary occlusion is mandatory for myocardial salvage, reperfusion may trigger a cascade of harmful events (reperfusion injury) adding to myocardial injury. We investigated effects of reperfusion on left ventricular (LV) haemodynamics and ventriculo-arterial (VA) coupling in pigs following acute myocardial ischaemia induced by coronary artery occlusion. Experiments were performed in six animals, with measurements of cardiac and arterial function at baseline, after 60 min of ischaemia (T60) and after 2 (T180) and 4 h of reperfusion (T300). Ventriculo-arterial coupling was assessed using the ventriculo-arterial elastance ratio of paper, as well as using a 'stiffness coupling' and 'temporal coupling' index. Reperfusion following ischaemia (T180 versus T60) induced a progressive decline in cardiovascular function, evidenced by a decrease in mean arterial blood pressure, cardiac output and ejection fraction which was not restored at T300. Although reperfusion also induced an increase in slope of the end-systolic pressure-volume relationship (ESPVR), the ESPVR curve shifted to the right, associated with a depression of contractile function. Histology demonstrated irreversible myocardial damage at T300. The ventriculo-arterial elastance ratio and the 'stiffness coupling' index were unaffected throughout the protocol, but the 'temporal coupling' parameter indicated a relative shift between heart period and the time constant of the arterial system. It is unlikely that these alterations are attributable to ischaemic injury alone. The combination of both the stiffness and temporal coupling index may provide more information when studying ventriculo-arterial coupling than the more commonly used ventricular end-systolic stiffness/effection arterial elastance (E-es/E-a) ratio.
