Axial and particularly coronal images can help assess the amount of bony versus mucosal hypertrophy. If clinical presentation raises the concern of other obstructive processes such as nasal polyps or masses, CT imaging of the nose and sinuses should be performed. Rhinomanometry: Rhinomanometry is a technique for measuring nasal airway resistance.
Have you ever know that rheumatism is just a common name for all rheumatic diseases without specifying the types! While rheumatism is a word that describes unspecified rheumatic diseases, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the joints. This disease happens mostly to women at their middle age, but it also happens to young people.

As a result, there is just general treatment to reduce these symptoms, so many people with the disease lose their joint's function.
Damage to nerves causes peripheral neuropathy, leading to deficits in sensation, autonomic dysfunction and motor impairments. Most patients that develop charcot foot have a high level of peripheral neuropathy. It typically occurs following a minor injury like a sprain or fracture. In the early 1960s Eichenholtz summarized and collected data from literature, clinical and radiographic findings. He
Introduction Femoral iliac stent placement is surgery to place a small metal tube (stent) into a blood vessel in the thigh. The stent is placed in a blood vessel that moves blood from the heart to the leg (iliac artery). The purpose of the stent is to keep the artery open. You may need this procedure if you have a narrow, blocked, or damaged iliac artery that does not provide enough blood flow to the leg. Tell a health care provider about: Any allergies you have.
People born with Trisomy 21 are also more likely to be born with heart defects. Congenital heart disease affects almost half of the babies born with Down syndrome. CHD can lead to high blood pressure in the lungs, the heart not able to pump blood to throughout the body, and cyanosis, which is blue-tinted skin because of the lack of oxygen in the skin. Down syndrome also affects the immune system and makes it much harder for the immune system to fight off infections. People with Down syndrome are twelve times more likely to die from an infection than somebody without it.

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for spasticity. However, the symptoms of spasticity can be easily managed through the use of therapeutic, pharmacological or surgical intervention. The treatment of those diagnosed with spasticity must be closely managed by neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiotherapists, traumatologists, rehabilitation physicians and in some cases, psychologists. Non-pharmacological therapeutic interventions: This approach to managing spasticity involves the use of gentle physical exercise, such as swimming, muscle stretching, standing exercises and hydrotherapy, in order to improve muscle tone and minimize the severity of any episodes experienced by the individual. Splints, prostheses and hot and cold packs can also be beneficial to the person with spasticity.
It can also lead to pneumonia, sinus infections and blood poisoning. Children under the age of two and older adults who have weak immune systems are at the most risk. Pneumococcal meningitis is harmful and can cause severe brain damage or ca even cause someone to go deaf.

People at risk for this disease include infants under the age of one, people who travel to foreign countries, freshmen in college who live in the dorms and people with suppressed immune systems.
