Can we use tms (trans magnitic stimulation) for pain management?

Definitely: There have been very impressive results using tms in patients coming out of bariatric surgery. This was a double blinded-sham controlled study and it was repeated so it is very rigorous. People with active tms self-administered about 50% less narcotic from a pain pump than those with sham (fake) treatment. Without a doubt, tms works for certain types of pain and it is being explored for others. ...Read more

Is this reliability of MRI brain and mr angiography better?

Is this reliability of MRI brain and mr angiography better?

Depends: I believe you are asking which is better, MRI of the brain or mr angiography. An MRI of the brain details the structure and morphology of the brain as well as whether there is evidence of infarct (stroke), demyelination (ms) or a mass. Mr angiography details the arterial vessels to evaluate for aneurysm or vascular disease. They are often performed together. ...Read more

Can high blood pressure be treated with magnetotherapy (magnetic bracelet )?

Can high blood pressure  be treated  with magnetotherapy  (magnetic  bracelet )?

The power of magnets: I wish I could tell you the scientific community and FDA and ACP recommends magnetic bracelets to treat high blood pressure but I can not. There are no proven studies that show magnets are superior to treat htn than the proven studies that show the DASH diet, cut down on Etoh, stop smoking, diet exercise and yes medications to treat high blood pressure. So wear one for fun but heed the docs advice ...Read more

What does Minimally reduced final aggregation in response to ADP with disaggregation(final aggregation approximate 30%) means in platelet aggrigation?

What does Minimally reduced final aggregation in response to ADP with disaggregation(final aggregation approximate 30%)
means in platelet aggrigation?

Platelet aggregation: The platelet test measures 2 phases - initial ability of platelets to plug leaks, and the secondary reaction of clumps of platelets to stick together (aggregate). Some drugs (like ASA or NSAIDS /ibuprofen) and other structural (genetic) defects can reduce secondary aggregation, which can increase risk of bleeding. Your result could be caused by taking 1 ASA weeks ago. ...Read more

Passed out briefly w/ auditory hallucination, blurry peripheral vision foggy mind for past week, bloodwork ok but carbon dioxide level 19. Causes?

If your doctor is saying that these aren't indicated, I'd ask him/her what the diagnosis is to explain this event. ...Read more

Can radio frequency ablation treat svt?

Can radio frequency ablation treat svt?

Yes.: Svt, (supraventricular tachycardia) is a short-circuit of the normal heart conduction pathways. Usually there is a small area that, if removed, would Prohibit the circuit from conducting and therefore block the svt. During ablation, a catheter is placed in this area of the heart, and the tip generates rf energy to scar the heart tissue in a small area, which prevents it from conducting electricity. ...Read more

I've read various stories on less invasive colonoscopy procedures out there. Can you help me better understand their effectiveness verus traditional?

I've read various stories on less invasive colonoscopy procedures out there. Can you help me better understand their effectiveness verus traditional?

Big differences: Ct colonography is the non invasive alternative to colonoscopy. It requires a similar preparation to that needed for colonoscopy ( the part nobody likes);, is only 60-70% accurate compared to 90+% accuracy of colonoscopy; can only be diagnostic so if a lesion or polyp is found you still need a colonoscopy to remove the polyp; and lastly, it is not covered by most insurance companies or medicare. ...Read more

Read that Bence Jones Protein can sometimes appear in 24 hr urine and be missed/normal in serum Free Light Chain Assay? Normal SPEP but no UPEP done..

No consensus: The serum free light chain assay is newer and is supposed to detect free light chains in serum even before they are detectable in urine. The old protocol was with plasma electrophoresis and urine protein immunofixation. It all depends now on the hematologist's confidence level in the new test. ...Read more
