Brain Disease Therapeutic Strategies And Brachial plexopathy BP

Radiation-induced BP (RBP) appears to be the most commonly reported syndrome of peripheral nerve injury caused by therapeutic irradiation. The disorder typically begins with hand and arm numbness and paresthesias followed by proximal weakness, and examination reveals sensory loss, reflex changes, weakness and atrophy in the distribution of the upper trunk, i.e. roots C5 and C6.14 Ipsilateral limb lymphedema and cutaneous radiation changes may be present, but Horner's syndrome is rare and pain is not a dominant complaint. Onset is usually insidious but the course is unpredictable. Although preserved functional ability is seen in about 50 of the patients,15,16 and there are occasional descriptions of spontaneous improvement, particularly of sensory symptoms,17 many patients become severely disabled after a slowly progressive course over several years,18 rarely with acute deterioration of motor functions.19 Involvement of the upper as opposed to the lower trunk is considered by some to...

Table 382 Forms of brachial plexopathy in cancer patients

Lymphedema (breast cancer)81 The most important single clinical clue is pain.2 Prominent early and persistent pain is an indicator of tumor infiltration, while late reappearance of pain in previously stable RBP suggests a recurrence.20 Horner's syndrome and lower plexus deficit also suggest a metastasis, whereas relatively painless upper trunk plexopathy and panplexopathy are more consistent with RBP. Arm lymphedema, radiation skin changes, radiation pneumonitis and mediastinitis are probably of no diagnostic value and must be considered in accord with other findings. Treatment of RBP remains disappointing. Splinting the arm to prevent shoulder joint subluxation, lymphedema-reducing measures, adequate pain control and intensive physical and occupational therapy are the mainstays of RBP management.27,36 Therapeutic surgical exploration with neurolysis and pedicled omentoplasty, angiolysis and local muscle release is occasionally performed, with the aim of reducing the pain and halting...

Pathological Processes in the Colon

In those instances where a disease of the colon is to be treated locally through the use of a delivery system, testing in the appropriate animal model is extremely important. For example, the delivery of anti-inflammatory agents to the colon for treatment of inflammatory bowel disease must be evaluated in suitable animal models. A number of animal models for intestinal inflammation are available for the testing of colonic delivery systems. The methods employed include lymphatic obstruction, vascular changes, and neurogenic manipulation 9-11 . Intestinal inflammation in animals such as rodents may be produced by topical application or administration of irritant chemicals such as acetic acid, trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid, difluoromethyl ornithine, pepsin inhibitors, or degraded carrageenan 9,11 . Colon cancer may be induced by administration of carcinogens such as chanthrenes, aromatic amines, hydrazine derivatives, alkylnitrosamides, and aflatoxin 12 . In the future, transgenic animals...

Factor Iii Sudomotor Changes And Edema

Peripheral edema is a common clinical finding in many conditions. However, it is unilateral, localized edema that is of diagnostic significance in CRPS. This is not like the dependent, pitting ankle edema of congestive cardiac failure or the brawny lymphedema of the arm after axillary node dissection. This localized edema has been described by several authors (reviewed in Ref. 26), and is possibly neurogenic in origin.28

Loop diuretics

Loop diuretics are used in pulmonary oedema due to left ventricular failure intravenous administration produces relief of breathlessness and reduces pre-load sooner than would be expected from the time of onset of diuresis. Loop diuretics are also used in patients with chronic heart failure. Diuretic-resistant oedema (except lymphoedema and oedema due to peripheral venous stasis or calcium-channel blockers) can be treated with a loop diuretic combined with a thiazide or related diuretic (e.g. bendroflumethiazide 5-10 mg daily or meto-lazone 5-20 mg daily).


Based on the empirical evidence of clinical regression of superficial radiation fibrosis after radiotherapy described above, our group conducted the first double-blind placebo-controlled trial of antioxidants in patients who had developed arm lymphedema and tissue fibrosis following radiotherapy treatment for breast cancer. A total of 68 eligible research volunteers with a minimum 20 increase in arm volume in the years after axillary supraclavicular radiotherapy (axillary surgery in 49 of 68 cases) were randomized to active drugs or placebo. The volunteers were given dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate 500 mg twice daily and pentoxifylline 400 mg twice daily or corresponding placebo capsules over a period of 6 months. The volume of the ipsilateral limb, measured opto-electronically by a perometer and expressed as a percentage of contralateral limb volume, was selected as the primary end point. Secondary end points included clinician assessment of breast induration and validated patient...


Pretreatment neurophysiological tests were grossly abnormal in the affected hand compared with the unaffected hand in both HBO and control groups, as expected, but no statistically significant differences were noted in either group at any time up to 12 months posttreatment. However, normalization of the warm sensory threshold in two of the HBO group was reliably recorded. Two cases with marked chronic arm lymphedema reported major and persistent improvements in arm volume for at least 12 months after treatment with HBO. These unexpected observations led to a study of HBO for arm lymphedema. HBO for Radiation-Induced Arm Lymphedema (Arm Fibrosis is also believed to contribute to the development of lymphedema. The pathophysiology of lymphedema after radiotherapy and or surgery involves obstruction of lymphatic flow, causing an imbalance between capillary filtration and lymph drainage.5758 Although physical removal of lymphatic vessels at surgery offers a partial explanation,...
