Corticosteroid liver failure

The humerus, glenoid, scapula, acromion, clavicle and surrounding soft tissues make up the shoulder. There are three significant articulations: the sternoclavicular joint, the acromioclavicular joint and the glenohumeral joint. The glenohumeral joint is the most commonly dislocated major joint in the body.

Ligaments and surrounding musculature, including the rotator cuff muscles, contribute to shoulder joint stability. The rotator cuff is composed of the four muscles: supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis that interlock to function as one unit. These muscles help with internal and external rotation of the shoulder and importantly depress the humeral head against the glenoid as the arm is elevated. The tendons join together to form one tendon, the rotator cuff tendon. This passes through the subacromial space. The subacromial bursa, which has a large number of pain sensors, fills the space between the acromion and the rotator cuff tendon. [ 1 ]

Addiction to cortisone was the subject of the 1956 motion picture, Bigger Than Life , produced by and starring James Mason . Though it was a box-office flop upon its initial release, [15] many modern critics hail it as a masterpiece and brilliant indictment of contemporary attitudes towards mental illness and addiction. [16] In 1963, Jean-Luc Godard named it one of the ten best American sound films ever made. [17] John F. Kennedy needed to regularly use corticosteroids such as cortisone as a treatment for Addison's disease . [18]

Acetaminophen overdose with a jaundice to encephalopathy interval of 0-7 days has a fair likelihood of spontaneous recovery. A jaundice-to-encephalopathy interval of >28 days is usually caused by idiosyncratic drug reactions. It has a very poor prognosis without liver transplantation. Improvements in intensive care and liver transplantation have significantly affected survival rates. Today a . patient receiving care in a liver transplant center has about a 40% chance of spontaneous recovery and about 65% survival rate following liver transplantation. *
