Definition His bundle electrography is a test that measures electrical activity in a part of the heart that carries the signals that control the time between heartbeats (contractions). Alternative Names His bundle electrogram; HBE; His bundle recording; Electrogram - His bundle How the test is performed The bundle of His is a group of fibers that carry electrical impulses through the center of the heart. If these signals are blocked, you will have problems with your heartbeat. The His bundle electrography is part of an electrophysiology (EP) study. You are given a mild sedative before the test. An intravenous catheter (IV line) is inserted into your arm so that you can be given medicines during the test. Electrocardiogram (ECG) leads are placed on your arms and legs. Your arm, neck, or groin will be cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic. After the area is numb, the cardiologist makes a small cut in a vein and inserts a thin tube called a catheter inside. The catheter is carefully moved t...
I suffer from Chronic migraines I have been seeing a specialist for them he started giving me nerve block shots in the right side of my head right above my right ear. The last injection was in October 2011 by the middle of November I noticed a big indention starting at the hairline of my forehead and extending past the injection sight. Could this indention be from the injections? Will it ever go away? I have noticed that where the needle entered there is a tender spot and if I touch it, rub, or comb my hair I get a tingling sensation on the back of my head. Please help! Pamela.

Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
Alternative Names Dacryostenosis; Blocked nasolacrimal duct; Nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) Treatment Carefully clean the eyelids with a warm, wet washcloth. Be careful not to use the same part of the washcloth more than once. Some doctors suggest gently massaging the area 2 - 3 times a day. Using a clean finger, rub the area from the inside corner of the eye toward the nose. This may help to open the tear duct. If an eye infection develops, your health care provider may recommend that you use eye drops or ointment. A blocked tear duct that does not improve may need to be opened by a probing procedure. This may require anesthesia . Rarely, a small tube or stent needs to be placed in the tear duct to keep it open. In adults, the cause of the blockage must be treated. This may re-open the duct if there is not much damage. Surgery to reconstruct the passageway may be needed to re-establish normal tear drainage, and stop the overflow onto the cheek.
