Injection of small volumes gradually and progressively allows the cutaneous nerve endings
to accommodate for the distortion caused by anesthetic infiltration and thereby, substantially minimizing the pain.
The researchers, who published their results in the current issue of Advanced Healthcare Materials, developed a novel hybrid conduit that consisted of a soft material, called a hydrogel, as an external wall along with an internal wall made of an electrically-active conducting polymer to serve as a tunnel that guides the regrowth and reconnection of the severed nerve endings
The problem surgeons' face when adapting nerves in traumatized patients with more complex injuries is the fact that most commonly there is a loss of matter and therefore a gap between the functional nerve endings
and hence a tension-free suture cannot be achieved.
A paper cut tends to irritate these nerve endings
rather than destroy them like a deep knife cut might.
Results of ipsilateral and contralateral control biopsies discount a hypothesized effect of swelling on the number of nerve endings
, and the fact that a control group of seven osteoarthritis patients with severe leg pain, edema, and disuse had no loss of nerve endings
discounts the hypothesis that pain "burns out" nerve endings
When pressed against the sample site, a series of eight raised dots on the platform stimulate the nerve endings
, which sends a message of comfort to the brain--masking the weaker pain stimulus from the lancet.
Anyone who has had chickenpox is at risk for shingles, a painful rash that occurs when the varicella virus reactivates after years of lying dormant in nerve endings
Williams, 22, severed a nerve in his right shoulder when taking a fall on the Evan Williams-trained The Spacer in a handicap chase, and had to undergo an eight-and-a-half-hour operation at Morriston Hospital in Swansea in which nerve endings
from above his right ankle were transplanted to his shoulder.
This disc quivers with almost as many raw nerve endings
as Hole's Live Through This.
These nerve fibers branched several times and into the connective tissue papillae they form a single or ramified sensory nerve endings
Jessica's only hope is for surgery on her nerve endings
by Dr Ronald Zucker from the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
Potassium ions penetrate the length of the dentin tubules and prevent repolarization of sensory nerve endings
