Abrahamsen1,2 1Department of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery and Audiology, Aalborg University Hospital, 2Department of Clinical Medicine, Aalborg University This protocol describes how to correctly perform the video head impulse test with two separate test systems commonly used worldwide. Both the 2D and 3D video head impulse test methods are described.
A Quantitative Sensory Testing Paradigm to Obtain Measures of Pain Processing in Patients Undergoing Breast Cancer Surgery Noud van Helmond1, Hans Timmerman1, Søren S. Olesen2, Asbjørn M. Drewes2, Joris Kleinhans3, Oliver H. Wilder-Smith1, Kris C. Vissers1, Monique A. Steegers1 1Department of Anesthesiology, Pain, and Palliative Medicine, Radboud University Medical Center, 2Mech-Sense, Department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Aalborg University Hospital, 3Medical Technology & Clinical Physics, Radboud University Medical Center Persistent postsurgical pain may be related to changes in pain processing. By assessing pain in response to standardized stimuli, changes in pain processing can be elucidated. We present methods to obtain pain thresholds to different stimuli and a measure of endogenous analgesia in patients undergoing breast cancer surgery.
Exposure of the Pig CNS for Histological Analysis: A Manual for Decapitation, Skull Opening, and Brain Removal Carsten R. Bjarkam1, Dariusz Orlowski2, Laura Tvilling2, Johannes Bech2, Andreas N. Glud2, Jens-Christian H. Sørensen2 1Department of Neurosurgery, Clinical Institute of Medicine, Aalborg University Hospital, 2Center of Experimental Neuroscience (Cense), Department of Neurosurgery, Institute of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital The goal of this paper and instructional video is to describe how to expose and remove the postmortem pig brain and pituitary gland in an intact state, suitable for subsequent macroscopic and histological analysis.
