Wernicke's Encephalopathy, Wet Beriberi, and Polyneuropathy in a Patient with Folate and Thiamine Deficiency Related to Gastric Phytobezoar.
Background. Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE) is an acute neurological disorder resulting from thiamine deficiency. It is mainly related to alcohol abuse but it can be associated with other conditions such as gastrointestinal disorders. This vitamin def

Quantitatively mimicking wet colloidal suspensions with dry granular media.
Athermal two-dimensional granular systems are exposed to external mechanical noise leading to Brownian-like motion. Using tunable repulsive interparticle interaction, it is shown that the same microstructure as that observed in colloidal suspensions

[Critical illness polyneuropathy and myopathy as neurological complications of sepsis].
Intensive care unit acquired weakness (ICUAW) is a frequent and severe complication of intensive care management. Within ICUAW critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) and myopathy (CIM) can be differentiated. The major symptom of ICUAW is progressive q

Total parenteral nutrition caused Wernicke's encephalopathy accompanied by wet beriberi.
Female, 17 FINAL DIAGNOSIS: Wernicke's encephalopathy Symptoms: Blurred vision • dizziness • nystygmus • tachycardia

Intensive care unit acquired weakness in children: Critical illness polyneuropathy and myopathy.
Intensive care unit acquired weakness (ICUAW) is a common occurrence in patients who are critically ill. It is most often due to critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) or to critical illness myopathy (CIM). ICUAW is increasingly being recognized partl

Sliding friction on wet and dry sand.
We show experimentally that the sliding friction on sand is greatly reduced by the addition of some-but not too much-water. The formation of capillary water bridges increases the shear modulus of the sand, which facilitates the sliding. Too much wate

Long-term recovery In critical illness myopathy is complete, contrary to polyneuropathy.
Muscle weakness in critically ill patients after discharge varies. It is not known whether the electrophysiological distinction between critical illness myopathy (CIM) and critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) during the early part of a patient's sta

Bilateral Diaphragmatic Paralysis in a Patient With Critical Illness Polyneuropathy: A Case Report.
Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis (BDP) manifests as respiratory muscle weakness, and its association with critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) was rarely reported. Here, we present a patient with BDP related to CIP, who successfully avoided tracheo
