The impact of spasticity on diaphragm contraction: electrophysiological assessment

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease in which ventilatory insufficiency and other respiratory complications account for the majority of deaths. Respiratory failure is a presenting feature in about 3-5% of the patients (de Carvalho et al., 1996).

Globular amyloidosis of the colon

Publication date: Available online 24 May 2018

Gastrointestinal involvement is frequent in systemic amyloidosis. However, amyloidosis can rarely be confined to the gastrointestinal tract or appear as a tumour mass. There have been few reports describing amyloid globular deposits in a variety of locations, as opposed to the usual linear ones. We herein report a rare case of globular amyloidosis involving the large bowel, which to the best of our knowledge is the second reported in the world literature.A 74-year-old man consulted on anaemia. Endoscopy showed ulcerative lesions in the left colon, which were biopsied and diagnosed as ischemic colitis. Under light microscopy, we found globular discrete deposits in the lamina propria which were Congo red-positive and resistant to permanganate digestion. Histopathological diagnosis was globular amyloidosis with AL deposits. The patient underwent further studies, including a haematologic evaluation that discarded systemic involvement.Globular amyloidosis seems to be a rare morphologic type of amyloidosis, but not a distinct entity. Its etiology, pathogenesis and relationship with patient prognosis and disease severity remain largely unknown. When amyloid deposits are confined to the gastrointestinal tract, systemic therapy can be avoided and patients should only be followed periodically. Immunohistochemical classification and clinical correlation are essential to rule out systemic amyloidosis.

Motor unit number estimation (MUNE): Where are we now?

Estimation of the number of motor units (MUNE) in specific muscles is important to monitor outcome in progressive neurogenic disorders, with potential application in clinical trials. However, in spite of recent developments to identify the most convenient technique for MUNE, all current methods have individual shortcomings. It is essential to understand the scientific concepts that support MUNE and the many methods already proposed. In particular, the core role of the compound muscle action potential (CMAP) size in the estimation process is undervalued. Operator-dependent variation in CMAP amplitude or area is the main factor underlying MUNE stability. At present, MUNIX, as standardized in many centers, is probably the best accepted method. Future developments should be based on full understanding of the neurophysiological concepts underlying the MUNE calculation, in order to find a quick, well-tolerated, operator-friendly and reliable method to apply more universally in clinical practice.

Print-, sublexical and lexical processing in children with reading and/or spelling deficits: An ERP study

Findings on the neurophysiological correlates of developmental dyslexia are mixed, due to the differential conceptualization of the impairment. Studies differ on whether participants with developmental dyslexia are recruited based on reading skills only or reading as well as spelling skills. The current study contrasts the contribution of impaired reading and spelling to ERP correlates of print sensitivity, lexico-semantic access and sensitivity to orthographic regularities. Four groups of children were recruited: isolated reading deficit, isolated spelling deficit, combined reading and spelling deficit, and typically developing. Their neural correlates (EEG) of word, pseudohomophone, and pseudoword reading, as well as false font processing were compared. 1) All groups showed higher N1 amplitudes to letters than to false fonts. 2) Good spellers exhibited more negative N400 s for meaningless (pseudowords) than for meaningful stimuli (words and pseudohomophones). This effect was not observed in poor spellers. 3) Good readers showed sensitivity to orthographic regularities in a later time window (700–900 ms), whereas this was not the case for poor readers. 1) Print sensitivity is not affected by reading and/or spelling deficit in German-speaking 3rd graders. 2) Spelling deficits are associated with a reduced orthographic lexicon, 3) Reading deficits are associated with atypical use of sublexical information. As this effect was observed after lexico-semantic access, the results are discussed in terms of a possible orthographic reanalysis hypothesis.
