involved by segmental vitiligo.
were more commonly involved in 17 (56.7%) patients followed by lumbar in 6 (20%), cervical in 5 (16.7%), cranial in 1 (3.3%) and sacral in 1 (3.3%) patient.
The onset of sensory block was defined as the time between injection of drug and the absence of pain to pinprick to highest dermatome
However, it is also linked to sympathetic nerve tone generated from the internal organs, projected upon the body's dermatomes
. Measuring sympathetic tone at small diameter skin spots outside of the arousal state, i.e.
On physical evaluation, she presented pain provoked by typically nonpainful stimuli (allodynia) and hyperalgesia in the left thoracic region from the root of the fourth thoracic dermatome
to the tenth thoracic dermatome
Decreased sensation below the T10 dermatome
. Her reflexes of lower limbs were decreased.
The pain is regional (not in a specific nerve territory or dermatome
) and usually has a distal predominance of abnormal sensory, motor, sudomotor, vasomotor, and/or trophic findings.
The outcome measures were anaesthetic recovery as evaluated with the time to sensory block resolution to S3 dermatome
and time to home readiness and the efficacy of the spinal block in perianal surgery.
* a razor blade (as an alternative, a dermatome
can be used for harvesting the graft)
It is, however, useful to see the inclusion of assessment of neuromuscular aspects of assessment of patients with cardiorespiratory problems, such as reflex, dermatome
and myotome assessment.
Responding about the existing facilities about the burn injuries, he said: "We have only fifteen percent limited facilities, there should be a full-fledged proper burn centre in the hospital." Two modes of treatment including Dermatome
vac closure and Tangential excision are used in the centre, Prof.
