Chorea Gravidarum Article by Tarakad S Ramachandran, MD

Last Updated: August 9, 2005 Chorea gravidarum (CG) is the term given to chorea occurring during pregnancy. This is not an etiologically or pathologically distinct morbid entity but a generic term for chorea of any cause starting during pregnancy. Chorea is an involuntary abnormal movement, characterized by abrupt, brief, nonrhythmic, nonrepetitive movement of any limb, often associated with nonpatterned facial grimaces. CG is regarded as a syndrome rather than a specific disease entity.

ACOG Guidelines on Endometrial Ablation

Endometrial ablation refers to minimally invasive surgical procedures that treat abnormal uterine bleeding in select women who have no desire for fertility. In its guidelines for endometrial ablation, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) compare standard resectoscopic endometrial ablation with nonresectoscopic endometrial ablation techniques and devices. ACOG also reviewed the indications, effectiveness, safety, and limitations of endometrial ablation. Copyright © 2008 by the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Does phlebotomy contribute to changes in hemoglobin and hematocrit levels in hospitalized patients?

The typical patient admitted for a 6-day hospitalization will have 75 mL of blood drawn, and this will reduce his or her hemoglobin level by 0.79 g/dL and hematocrit by 2.1 percentage points. As a result, one in six patients will become anemic as a result of blood draws.

Neuromyelitis Optica

Whether neuromyelitis optica (NMO), the co-occurrence of myelitis and optic neuritis, is a variant of multiple sclerosis (MS) or a unique disease is controversial. Distinct neuropathological features and a fulminant clinical course argue in favor of NMO as a distinct disease. However, the combination of neurological impairments of myelitis and optic neuritis occurs in patients with several inflammatory disorders, including multiple sclerosis and collagen vascular diseases. NMO is also associated with certain infectious diseases. The fact that the NMO phenotype occurs in a variety of disease states suggests that NMO does not represent a specific clinical entity. To better understand NMO and its associations with recognized diseases, a systematic review of the literature using MEDLINE was conducted. The history of NMO, its nosology, associations with other diseases, and current concepts of its pathogenesis and treatment is reviewed in this article.
