39. Ethosuximide for Absence Seizures...

Figure 14-5. Mechanism of absence seizure. A. EEG recordings of patients experiencing absence seizures are similar to sleep spindle patterns generated during slow-wave sleep. The 3-persecond oscillatory pattern is generated by the burst activity of a dendritic T-type calcium channel in the thalamus. 1. During the awake state, relay neurons of the thalamus are in transmission mode, in which incoming signals are faithfully transmitted to the cortex as single spikes. These signals to the cortex register on the EEG as small, desynchronized, low voltage waves. 2. During slow-wave sleep, signals relayed through the thalamus are altered because of the bursting activity of a dendritic T-type calcium channel (see below). During this stage, called burst mode, sensory information is not transmitted to the cortex. 3. Absence seizures result from abnormal activation of the Ttype calcium channel during the awake state, resulting in a similar spike-and-wave EEG pattern. B. The absence seizure is generated by a self-sustaining cycle of activity between the thalamus and the cortex. Synchronicity is initiated by hyperpolarization of the thalamic relay neurons (light gray). This occurs normally during slow-wave sleep and is caused by GABAergic input from the reticular thalamic nucleus (dark gray). The factors that cause hyperpolarization in relay neurons during an absence seizure are poorly understood. 1. Hyperpolarization of relay neurons induces burst activity of the T-type calcium channel, resulting in synchronous depolarization in the cortex via excitatory connections. This large depolarization in the cortex registers as a spike-and-wave pattern on the EEG. 2. Excitatory input from the cortex activates the reticular thalamic neurons. 3. The activated GABAergic reticular neurons hyperpolarize the thalamic relay neurons and reinitiate the cycle.

335. Pt has endometrial hyperplasia caused by ovarian tumor? Granulosa cell tumor causing increased estrogen 336. Why arent there lymphatics in lung? IVC

Explanation: Lymphatic vessels of the lung: - Drain the bronchial tree, pulmonary vessels, and connective tissue septa. - Run along the bronchiole and bronchi toward the hilus, where they drain to the pulmonary (intrapulmonary) and then bronchopulmonary nodes, which in turn drain to the inferior (carinal) and superior t ra cheobronchial nodes, the t racheal (paratracheal) nodes, b ro n ch o med iast in al nodes and trunks, and eventually to the t horacic duct on the left and right lymphatic duct on the right. - Are not present in the walls of the pulmonary alveoli.

Bronchial veins
Receive blood from the bronchi and empty into the a z yg o s ve i n on the right and into the a c c es s o r y h e m i a z yg o s ve i n or the superior intercostal vein on the left. May receive twigs (small vessels) from the tracheobronchial lymph nodes

Pulmonary Physiology

Recall July 2010 (Annie Yang) I just got off the phone with Annie who took the exam today. She didn't send me an email but we talked on the phone for a while and discussed it; this is what I wrote down: Ok, she says that the difficulty level is more on par with the NBMEs than UW. Now, granted that she didn't actually finish UW completely, she told me that the closest thing to a repeat question on her test was an image that was reproduced from the 2010 NBME overview pdf, but the question itself was different. What she was really praising though was Doctors in Training. She said she was very glad she went through it all because all of the weird small additional things that Jenkins adds to FA is actually relevant and important and tested. For example, the rectum is the most accurate place to take a body temperature, and another example is in order to diagnose temporal arteritis you need to biopsy the vessel, etc. DIT also gave almost exact images and labeling of the brainstem, spinal cord, etc that will show up on the test. For example, a picture of a brainstem was shown and a question asking about which nerve causes the gag reflex (CN 9 btw) and another example is the medial lemniscus on brainstem. She said that FA was by far the biggest thing that helped her and DIT was great at additional annotating in FA that is relevant (again, she didnt finish UW, but said the details not in FA that UW tested weren't as relevant as the additional things DIT tells you. I am guessing because Jenkins is spewing out stuff from his surveys of actual exams). There was also

something than Jenkins said about the pupillary light reflex that was tested but not in FA but I couldn't understand what Annie was saying exactly. Other questions: - Reproductive path - b-hcg and estriol in Edwards syndrome (Trisomy 18) being down?

- Hormonal drugs - Sulfonylureas where its actions - Signaling sequencing (if lose where will the material will end up) - 10 questions on Cholesterol drugs, receptors, biochemistry, mechanisms of actions - Mechanisms of local anesthetics - 5 questions on stroke drugs - Phenylephrine - Effect on epinephrine why you use local anesthetics with it (to decrease the blood flow) - pancuronium, etc - Number needed to harm vs nnt - Apoptosis and caspases - Bunch of cell bio (organelles, ER, where things are made, etc) - Vimentin, desmin, etc - B hcg responsible for breast development in guys? - Allergic reaction IgE - Lots of murmurs. Apparently if you know if it is in diastole/systole and where you can hear them it will tell you the answer - the gag reflex (CN 9 btw) - pupillary light reflex - Substantia nigra location - images and labeling of the brainstem, spinal cord - Broad based Gait in alcoholic (vit deficiency) - Edema. Why you get edema, edema in chf, all pressures, etc know - 7 or 8 questions based just on filtration equations, etc in kidney - the rectum is the most accurate place to take a body temperature

- 5 qs on prostate carcinoma - 3 questions on Suprapinatus n actions - LE anatomy femoral nerve innervates what, know lumbosacral plexus EAQs f*cked up questions!!!!!!

- 3 questions on Myotonic dystrophy, ragged red fibers wanted to know the cause of it, etc - Myotonic dystrophy: due to Trinucleotide repeat expansion (CTG)n

DM1 and DM2 are both autosomal dominant disorders. New mutations do not appear to contribute to the pool of affected individuals. DM1 is transmitted by an intronic mutation consisting of an unstable expansion of a CTG trinucleotide repeat in a serine-threonine protein kinase gene (named DMPK) on chromosome 19q13.3. An increase in the severity of the disease phenotype in successive generations (genetic anticipation) is accompanied by an increase in the number of trinucleotide repeats. A similar type of mutation has been identified in fragile X syndrome (Chap. 62). The unstable triplet repeat in myotonic dystrophy can be used for prenatal diagnosis. Congenital disease occurs almost exclusively in infants born to affected mothers; it is possible that sperm with greatly expanded triplet repeats do not function well. DM2 is caused by a DNA expansion mutation consisting of a CCTG repeat in intron 1 of the ZNF9 gene located at chromosome 3q13.3-q24. The gene is believed to encode an RNA binding protein expressed in many different tissues, including skeletal and cardiac muscle. The DNA expansions in DM1 and DM2 almost certainly impair muscle function by a toxic gain of function of the mutant mRNA. In both DM1 and DM2, the mutant RNA appears to form intranuclear inclusions composed of aberrant RNA. These RNA inclusions sequester RNA binding proteins essential for proper splicing of a variety of other mRNAs. This leads to abnormal transcription of multiple proteins in a variety of tissues/organ systems, in turn causing the systemic manifestations of DM1 and DM2
