Disease relevance of Decompression, Surgical


High impact information on Decompression, Surgical

  • This study compared the effects of local steroid injection versus surgical decompression in new-onset CTS of at least 3 months' duration [6].
  • At 6 and 12 months, the percentages of responders were 85.5% versus 76.3% (P = 0.163) and 69.9% versus 75.0% (P = 0.488), for local steroid injection and surgical decompression, respectively [6].
  • In addition, plasma ACTH, cortisol, and PRL levels were measured hours to days after surgery to investigate immediate alterations in pituitary function following surgical decompression [7].
  • Accordingly, we examined injured brain tissue from adult patients (n = 8) that underwent emergent surgical decompression after TBI, for alterations in the inducible 72-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp70), the constitutive 73-kDa heat shock protein (Hsc70), and isoforms of the chaperone cofactor BAG-1 [8].
  • During the experimental applications, all received the highest standard of conventional management, including surgical decompression, spinal stabilization (if required), and acute administration of methylprednisolone sodium succinate [9].
