Title: Correlation of Electrophysiology with Pathology, Pathogenesis, and Anticholinesterase Therapy in Post-Polio Syndrome
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Neil R. Cashman and Daria A. Trojan
Original Publication: Reprinted from The Post-Polio Syndrome: Advances in the Pathogenesis and Treatment Volume 753 [pp 138-150] of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences May 25, 1995
Abstract/Extract: A great deal of data has been generated on PPS, and a great deal more will be generated before we understand the pathophysiology of this common and disabling disorder. Perhaps now, to guide future work and direct therapeutic approaches, it is best to think of the symptoms of PPS as due to two lesions of the motor unit: a "progressive lesion" and a "fluctuating lesion."

Title: Dr. Neil Cashman Answers Polio Quebec Members' Questions
[ Full Text Here ] Also reproduced in Issue No.8 - November 1997 of LINK-PIN.
Author(s): Dr. Neil Cashman
Original Publication: POLIO QUEBEC AGM - September 1997
Abstract/Extract: Have you ever considered what the chiropractor can do to help the pains and the general condition of the spinal cord? - When do you decide to prescribe Mestinon to a patient? - Is general fatigue a criteria for the use of Mestinon, or is it more for weaknesses to legs, arms or for pain? - Has there been any research/invest into alternative medicine techniques either using herbal remedies or other healing techniques (Qi-gong)? - Do you recommend taking extra Calcium or Vitamin E for PPS? - Should a PPS person do conditioning exercises, sub maximal exercises or maximal fatiguing exercises, or all three? - What are your thoughts about CPAP? - Elaborate on the role of free radicals in PPS? - Does the [Canadian] government recognize PPS? Has any progress been made towards getting compensation for PPS? - Given that weight control is a problem when mobility is reduced, what advice would you give given that weight loss is a twofold formula of fewer calories combined with increased physical activity? - Is there anything new to relieve the feeling of coldness due to polio? - Are tendonitis and bursitis a sign of PPS? Are there short-term or long-term remedies? Is exercising recommended to regain strength? - What impact will Mestinon have on the heart? - How old is your youngest post-polio patient?

Title: Post-Poliomyelitis Fatigue Where Is The Lesion? The Controversey - Three Points Of View
[ Full Text Here ] Also reproduced in Issue No.8 - November 1997 of LINK-PIN.
Author(s): Dr. Neil Cashman
Original Publication: A Report of a Special Neurology Rounds At The Montreal Neurological Institute And Hospital September 26, 1997.
Abstract/Extract: A lightly edited resumé delivered by Dr. Cashman at Polio Quebec's Annual General Meeting the following day appears below for those who were unable to be with us or who would like to "hear" it again.
"Post-polio fatigue is probably the most common and certainly one of the most disabling symptoms that occur after polio. There is a great deal of controversy in the field as to what is causing the fatigue. The stakes are very high, because if we were to understand what is causing the fatigue then we could design a treatment or therapy that would help counter it.

Colby, Jane

Title: Post-Polio and Post-M.E. - New book furthers polio hypothesis
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Jane Colby
Original Publication: The CFIDS Chronicle - Fall 1996
Abstract/Extract: The following is an excerpt from the recently published book M.E. The New Plague by Jane Colby, a former school principal turned writer and researcher. The book, reviewed on page 55, uncovers strong evidence that myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E., the British term for CFIDS) is a type of polio which has, by historical accident, been given another name. Jane warns that we are repeating the mistakes of the past, which have led to further illness in polio survivors decades later. She also includes a risk factor list, survivors' lifestyle checklist, schools guidelines, comparisons of M.E. with school phobia and a chapter on psychological survival. Jane interviewed numerous experts including Dr. Richard Bruno, a post-polio researcher at the Kessler Institute in New Jersey.

Title: Bouncing Back Without Guilt
[ Full Text Here ] Also reproduced in Issue No.2 - November 1996 of LINK-PIN
Author(s): Wendy Clyne PsyD.
Abstract/Extract: Today, I'm going to be talking about some of the factors that may hinder you from becoming your own medical advocate. Some factors may be related to your experience of having polio, or to anyone attempting to cope with medical problems, such as chronic pain, fatigue, weakness, loss of function.

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
