“When we made that drive home, we got home, we got in the driveway. And when we were in the driveway I was crying because it was a realisation that, at that point, I didn't accomplish what I wanted to accomplish in those six weeks where I thought I was just going to walk out.”— Kale HyderKale Hyder works in an investment bank. In this interview, we discuss how his life 7 years ago changed on a dime: a rare spinal inflammation led an aspiring high school basketball player to have to deal with becoming quadriplegic. We talk about the physical and mental rehabilitation, and how, with the help of others, he's found direction, purpose and happiness.- - - - Think about what you're going to be doing next week. Are you working or studying? Will you be engaging in hobbies? Do you have any household chores that need completing? What social plans do you have? We all plan for the future and accept it as a given, but that's not always the case. For Kale Hyder, all of his future plans were wiped away overnight.One week he was at high school, studying, playing basketball & planning for his future, the next, he was unable to move. Panic and disbelief led to a hospital visit and tests and a diagnosis: transverse myelitis. Spinal inflammation. And that was it, Kale was paralysed. Life changed. Forever.Cases like Kyle's are rare, and the causes aren't properly understood, but it results in irreparable damage to nerves in the body's communication highway. The damage Kale was left with was made worse by where the inflammation was in his body. Kale's spinal cord swelled at the base of his neck, and he became a quadriplegic, he could no longer move any of his limbs.In this fascinating discussion, we talk about the long process of treatment and rehabilitation, learning to redevelop basic skills, how the body adapts and reconfigures itself, and the need for mechanical aids to perform functions previously taken for granted. Kale also opens up about depression, frustration and resignation.It's a story about acceptance and finding new paths. It's a story of realisation and insight. Happiness and fulfilment found in unexpected places. It is uplifting to hear such wisdom from someone who's had to face the worst that life has to offer. It is a story that ends up with Bitcoin, but it is not a Bitcoin story. - - - - This episode's sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyLedn - Financial services for Bitcoin hodlersBitcasino - The Future of Gaming is hereFidelity - Careers in cryptoLedger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware walletWasabi Wallet - Privacy by default-----WBD611 - Show Notes-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show by doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: BitcoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.

Link to bioRxiv paper: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2023.01.05.522181v1?rss=1 Authors: Dautan, D. Abstract: The pedunculopontine nucleus is a central actor of motor control with functions at the level of the Basal Ganglia and the Spinal cord and can modulate ongoing behavior as well as movement execution. Physiologically, the PPN is a heterogeneous nucleus, and these disparities can explain the functional outcome of deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's patients. Here, we revealed two individually distributed populations of glutamatergic neurons acting as the only known subcortical bidirectional interface between the Basal Ganglia and the Spinal cord. These subpopulations are under the control of direct cortical inputs from the primary motor cortex, that participate in the PPN microcircuitry to modulate muscle tones, locomotion, and balance. Thus, our data, for the first time revealed a subdivision within the PPN anatomy that is anatomically, physiologically, and functionally separated and could provide the first evidence for a symptoms-based approach in deep brain stimulations.

Spinal fusion is a major surgery. It is where one or more spinal bones (vertebrae) are fused together using screws, bolts, and or plates. The hardware may be placed in the front (anterior) or the back (posterior) of the spine. The disc between the spinal bones is oftentimes removed and replaced with bone or a spacer. Spinal fusion can be done in the neck, thoracic, and lumbar regions. Lumbar fusion is a surgical treatment for patients with ongoing pain, low back pain, or leg pain that has failed conservative treatment. Lumbar fusion surgery has become increasingly popular. The long-term side effects of Spinal fusion complications long-term can be broken down into two major categories: Failure of the procedure itself (failed fusion) Complications arise as a result of the fusion. The most common causes of a failed lumbar fusion are nonunion, hardware breaking, and hardware becoming loose. Non-union occurs when the spinal bones that are bolted together fail to fuse or grow together. The spinal bones are stabilized by the use of screws, bolts, and plates during lumbar fusion. Significant stresses are applied to the low back and the hardware; as a result, the hardware breaks, resulting in spinal instability and discomfort. In lumbar fusion, screws are utilized to support the spine. The screws can come loose due to the same stresses that can break the hardware. What's the main benefit of doing this? When it comes to scoliosis, surgery is the most common and traditional treatment option in our healthcare system, thus the goal is to attempt to stop progression even though there is very little study on the potential adverse effects and why so many individuals actually choose to have it. The final consequence of patient management by a surgeon is surgery, as would be expected, but patient management by a person who deals with conservative care is likely to result in more conservative care rather than surgery. Surgery can be used to treat scoliosis, and it's more likely to obtain any kind of reduction, but you won't be able to do so with the curve. When it comes to surgery, it should be your last resort. This means that you've exhausted all other treatment options and now you're forced to consider surgery. At this point, it's similar to when it comes to scoliosis therapy.
