Percutaneous osteoplasty for the treatment of a painful osteochondral lesion of the talus: a case report and literature review. (5/11)

An osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT) is a lesion involving the talar articular cartilage and its subchondral bone. OLT is a known cause of chronic ankle pain after ankle sprains in the active population. The lesion causes deep ankle pain associated with weight-bearing, impaired function, limited range of motion, stiffness, catching, locking, and swelling. There are 2 common patterns of OLTs. Anterolateral talar dome lesions result from inversion and dorsiflexion injuries of the ankle at the area impacting against the fibula. Posteromedial lesions result from inversion, plantar flexion, and external rotation injuries of the ankle at the area impacting against the tibial ceiling of the ankle joint. Early diagnosis of an OLT is particularly important because the tibiotalar joint is exposed to more compressive load per unit area than any other joint in the body. Failure of diagnosis can lead to the evolution of a small, stable lesion into a larger lesion or an unstable fragment, which can result in chronic pain, joint instability, and premature osteoarthritis. A 43-year-old man, with a history of ankle sprain one year previously, visited our pain clinic for continuous right ankle pain after walking or standing for more than 30 minutes. There was a focal tenderness on the posteromedial area of the right talus. Imaging studies revealed a posteromedial OLT classified as having a geode form according to the FOG (fractures, osteonecroses, geodes) radiological classification and categorized as a stage 2a lesion on magnetic resonance imaging. The patient was scheduled for aspiration and osteoplasty with hydroxyapatite under arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance. A 26-gauge needle was inserted to infiltrate local anesthetics into the skin over the cyst and ankle joint. An arthroscope was placed into the joint to approach the OLT. The arthroscopic view showed that there was no connection between the OLT and the cyst of the talus body. A 13-gauge bone biopsy needle was inserted into the cyst, and aspiration was performed. Aspirated fluid from the cyst was originally white and clear; however, it changed to a blood-tinged, reddish color due to mixing with the incisional blood. After aspiration, contrast medium was injected, and the shape of the spread was observed. Bone cement comprising hydroxyapatite was injected to fill the bone defect of the cyst. A 1.5 mL volume of cement was injected into the talus under vigilant fluoroscopic and arthroscopic monitoring to prevent its dissemination into the joint. There was no cement leakage into the vessels or articular space. Postoperative fluoroscopy and computed tomography images showed bone cement filling of the defect. In the present case, arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance was used for aspiration of an OLT and for performing percutaneous osteoplasty with hydroxyapatite for one defect; this treatment decreased pain upon weight bearing and enabled a return to work without any restrictions one week after the procedure. The purpose of this report was to highlight the presence of OLT in chronic ankle pain and to review its management strategies.  (+info)

*Cancer pain

Pain in cancer may arise from a tumor compressing or infiltrating nearby body parts; from treatments and diagnostic procedures; or from skin, nerve and other changes caused by a hormone imbalance or immune response. Most chronic (long-lasting) pain is caused by the illness and most acute (short-term) pain is caused by treatment or diagnostic procedures. However, radiotherapy, surgery and chemotherapy may produce painful conditions that persist long after treatment has ended. The presence of pain depends mainly on the location of the cancer and the stage of the disease. At any given time, about half of all people diagnosed with malignant cancer are experiencing pain, and two thirds of those with advanced cancer experience pain of such intensity that it adversely affects their sleep, mood, social relations and activities of daily living. With competent management, cancer pain can be eliminated or well controlled in 80% to 90% of cases, but nearly 50% of cancer patients in the developed world ...

*Ziconotide

... (SNX-111; Prialt) is an atypical analgesic agent for the amelioration of severe and chronic pain. Derived from Conus magus, a cone snail, it is the synthetic form of an ω-conotoxin peptide. In December 2004 the Food and Drug Administration approved ziconotide when delivered as an infusion into the cerebrospinal fluid using an intrathecal pump system. Ziconotide is derived from the toxin of the cone snail species Conus magus. Scientists have been intrigued by the effects of the thousands of chemicals in marine snail toxins since the initial investigations in the late 1960s by Baldomero Olivera. Olivera, now a professor of biology in the University of Utah, was inspired by accounts of the deadly effects of these toxins from his childhood in the Philippines. Ziconotide was discovered in the early 1980s by University of Utah research scientist Michael McIntosh, when he was barely out of high school and working with Baldomero Olivera. Ziconotide was developed into an artificially ...

*Causes of cancer pain

Cancer pain can be caused by pressure on, or chemical stimulation of, specialised pain-signalling nerve endings called nociceptors (nociceptive pain), or by damage or illness affecting nerve fibers themselves (neuropathic pain). Infection of a tumor or its surrounding tissue can cause rapidly escalating pain, but is sometimes overlooked as a possible cause. One study found that infection was the cause of pain in four percent of nearly 300 cancer patients referred for pain relief. Another report described seven patients, whose previously well-controlled pain escalated significantly over several days. Antibiotic treatment produced pain relief in all patients within three days. Tumors can cause pain by crushing or infiltrating tissue, or by releasing chemicals that make nociceptors responsive to stimuli that are normally non-painful (cf. allodynia). Deep vein thrombosis Between 15 and 25 percent of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is caused by cancer (often by a tumor compressing a vein). Cancers most ...

*Chronic pain

Under persistent activation nociceptive transmission to the dorsal horn may induce a pain wind-up phenomenon. This induces pathological changes that lower the threshold for pain signals to be transmitted. In addition it may generate nonnociceptive nerve fibers to respond to pain signals. Nonnociceptive nerve fibers may also be able to generate and transmit pain signals. The type of nerve fibers that are believed to propagate the pain signals are the C-fibers, since they have a slow conductivity and give rise to a painful sensation that persists over a long time.[17] In chronic pain this process is difficult to reverse or eradicate once established.[18] In some cases, chronic pain can be caused by genetic factors which interfere with neuronal differentiation, leading to a permanent reduction in the threshold for pain.[19] Chronic pain of different etiologies has been characterized as a disease affecting brain structure and function. Magnetic resonance imaging studies have shown abnormal ...

*Enchondroma

An enchondroma is a cartilage cyst found in the bone marrow. Typically, enchondroma is discovered on an X-ray scan. Enchondromas have a characteristic appearance on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as well. They have also been reported to cause increased uptake on PET examination. Enchondroma is a type of benign bone tumor that originates from cartilage. The exact etiology of it is not known. An enchondroma most often affects the cartilage that lines the inside of the bones. The bones most often involved with this benign tumor are the miniature long bones of the hands and feet. It may, however, also involve other bones such as the femur, humerus, or tibia. While it may affect an individual at any age, it is most common in adulthood. The occurrence between males and females is equal. It is not very likely that the enchondroma will grow back in the same spot; the rate is less than ten percent. While the exact cause of enchondroma is not known, it is believed to occur either as an overgrowth of the ...

*Osteosarcoma

An osteosarcoma (OS) or osteogenic sarcoma (OGS) is a cancerous tumor in a bone. Specifically, it is an aggressive malignant neoplasm that arises from primitive transformed cells of mesenchymal origin (and thus a sarcoma) and that exhibits osteoblastic differentiation and produces malignant osteoid. Osteosarcoma is the most common histological form of primary bone cancer. It is most prevalent in teenagers and young adults. Many patients first complain of pain that may be worse at night, may be intermittent and of varying intensity and may have been occurring for some time. Teenagers who are active in sports often complain of pain in the lower femur, or immediately below the knee. If the tumor is large, it can present as overt localised swelling. Sometimes a sudden fracture is the first symptom, because affected bone is not as strong as normal bone and may fracture abnormally with minor trauma. In cases of more deep-seated tumors that are not as close to the skin, such as those originating in the ...

*Paget's disease of bone

... (commonly known as Paget's disease or historically, osteitis deformans) is a condition involving cellular remodeling and deformity of one or more bones. The affected bones show signs of dysregulated bone remodeling at the microscopic level, specifically excessive bone breakdown and subsequent disorganized new bone formation. These structural changes cause the bone to weaken, which may result in deformity, pain, fracture, or arthritis of associated joints. The exact cause is unknown, although leading theories indicate both genetic and acquired factors (see causes). Paget's disease may affect any one or multiple bones of the body (most commonly pelvis, femur, and lumbar vertebrae, and skull), but never the entire skeleton, and does not spread from bone to bone. Rarely, a bone affected by Paget's disease can transform into a malignant bone cancer. As the disease often affects people differently, treatments of Paget's disease can vary. Although there is no cure for Paget's ...

*Saos-2 cells

Saos-2 ("Sarcoma osteogenic") is a cell line derived from the primary osteosarcoma of an 11-year-old Caucasian girl in 1973 by Fogh et al. In 1987 Rodan et al. determined that Saos-2 cells "possess several osteoblastic features and could be useful as a permanent line of human osteoblast-like cells and as a source of bone-related molecules." Besides their worldwide availability, some of the advantages for using Saos-2 cell line are that they have well-documented characterization data, the possibility to obtain large amounts of cells in short time, and the fact that Saos-2 cells can be fully differentiated in a manner that the osteoblastic cells naturally do. The latter point is described particularly as "the ability of Saos-2 cells to deposit a mineralization-competent extracellular matrix", which makes these cells a valuable model for studying events associated with the late osteoblastic differentiation stage in human cells. Fogh J, Fogh JM, Orfeo T (1977). "One hundred and twenty-seven cultured ...

*Bone pain

... (also known medically by several other names) is pain coming from a bone. It occurs as a result of a wide range of diseases and/or physical conditions and may severely impair the quality of life for patients who suffer from it. Bone pain belongs to the class of deep somatic pain, often experienced as a dull pain that cannot be localized accurately by the patient. This is in contrast with the pain which is mediated by superficial receptors in, e.g., the skin. Bone pain can have several possible causes ranging from extensive physical stress to serious diseases such as cancer. For many years it has been known that bones are innervated with sensory neurons. Yet their exact anatomy remained obscure due to the contrasting physical properties of bone and neural tissue. More recently, it is becoming clear what types of nerves innervated which sections of bone. The periosteal layer of bone tissue is highly pain-sensitive and an important cause of pain in several disease conditions causing bone ...

*Beta carbon nitride

... (β-C3N4) is a superhard material predicted to be harder than diamond. The material was first proposed in 1985 by Marvin Cohen and Amy Liu. Examining the nature of crystalline bonds they theorised that carbon and nitrogen atoms could form a particularly short and strong bond in a stable crystal lattice in a ratio of 1:1.3. That this material would be harder than diamond on the Mohs scale was first proposed in 1989. The material has been considered difficult to produce and could not be synthesized for many years. Recently, the production of beta carbon nitride was achieved. For example, nanosized beta carbon nitride crystals and nanorods of this material were prepared by means of an approach involving mechanochemical processing. Through a mechanochemical reaction process, β-C3N4 can be synthesized. This method is achieved by ball milling high purity graphite powders down to an amorphous nanoscale size while under an argon atmosphere, then the argon is purged and the graphite ...
Adult degenerative scoliosis can be a result of scoliosis from childhood. The curvature may increase during adulthood and become painful. Scoliosis that happens in childhood is usually idiopathic, meaning there is no known reason for it.Any part of the spine can be affected by scoliosis including the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar vertebrae. Most often the lumbar spine is affected. The vertebrae curve to one side and may rotate, which makes the waist, hips, or shoulders appear uneven.. The most common cause of adult degenerative scoliosis is from degeneration, known as wear and tear. Itusually occurs after the age of 40. In older women, it is often related to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the loss of calcium in the supporting bone. This makes the vertebrae weak. In adult degenerative scoliosis, the spine loses its structural stability and becomes unbalanced. This imbalance of the spine causes changes in the way the forces of the spine are directed. The larger the scoliotic curve becomes, the ...
Spinal collapse treatment. Coloured frontal X-ray of the lumbar spine of a 56-year-old patient being treated for a collapsed spinal vertebra. Three spinal bones (vertebrae, square blocks) are seen here, with the vertebral processes protruding on either side. The vertebra at centre (the L2 vertebra) has been injected with an acrylic bone cement (dark blue) to prevent it from collapsing. This treatment is known as vertebroplasty, or cementoplasty. The collapse of a vertebra can be caused by conditions such as osteoporosis or bone cancer. In the case of bone cancer, cementoplasty also helps to relieve the severe pain caused by the cancer. - Stock Image M700/0176
The challenge for physicians is that anticoagulants used for PCI often increase the risk of bleeding, especially at femoral access points in the thigh. A multi-site study led by a Miller School cardiologist has provided the first clinical application of a unique drug system that consists of an anticoagulant which thins the blood, and a control agent which then quickly reverses the process after the intervention..

Introduction. Controlled oxygenated rewarming of cold stored livers by machine perfusion demonstrated a strong protective effect in preclinical studies. Here we report on the first clinical application of this new concept in a pilot series of 6 marginal donor grafts.. Methods. Between 03/2014 and 05/2014 six distally procured livers from DBD-donors, which had been rejected by other transplant centers were subjected to the controlled rewarming protocol before transplantation. Immediately after arrival in our transplant center the hepatic artery and portal vein were cannulated. Gentle rewarming of the graft was effectuated thereafter by pressure controlled oxygenated machine perfusion (MP) via portal vein and hepatic artery (Organ Assist, Groningen, NL) while gradually increasing perfusate temperature up to 20°C.

Several signs of scoliosis in an adult are the same as those in an adolescent. Patients with scoliosis might notice that one shoulder appears to be higher than another. They might have an uneven waist and notice that their hips are not in line. One side of the body may show a prominence in the rib cage, and one shoulder blade may be more prominent than another. Scoliosis can make the torso tilt to one side and can even result in the legs seeming to be of unequal lengths.. Since scoliosis is a sideways curve, it is not usually obvious when viewing a patients profile. However, adults with scoliosis may lean forwards in order to try to stretch out the back, especially if a nerve in the spine is being pinched.. Patients with Adult Degenerative Scoliosis often experience back pain. The pain is usually located in the lower back (ie the lumbar region). In some cases, adults with scoliosis may also notice shooting pain in their legs.. While adult degenerative scoliosis may cause modest problems in many ...

Nowadays cancer is one of the most common diseases among the population. In 2018 more than 18 million cases of cancer were diagnosed in the world. When this disease is detected the life of the patients and the people that surround them changes radically.. Oncological patients subjected to treatment show effects on the skin and the cutaneous appendages, which means an important aesthetical alteration.. There is a great void around the cosmetic needs in these situations and the psychological effects produced during the chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. Aware of these problems, Germaine de Capuccini trains aesthetics professionals so they can recommend people in this delicate situation which is the best way to care for their skin.. ...

Our results suggest that nearly complete factor IXa inhibition, achieved with a single intravenous RB006 bolus, can support elective PCI, a finding that has not been documented previously. RB006 provided a rapid, reproducible, and stable pharmacodynamic response that was measurable with a point-of-care coagulation monitoring device used routinely in the catheterization laboratory. This study was the first to investigate the administration of a highly specific and rapid active control agent to achieve a desired intensity of anticoagulation after PCI. Partial reversal of RB006 allowed a graded or "controlled stepdown" in anticoagulation after PCI with a defined sheath removal time, whereas complete RB006 reversal allowed sheath removal immediately after PCI, both without complications.. Factor IXa is a vitamin K-dependent protein and an appealing anticoagulation target. Factor IX is activated early after vascular injury and assembles with factor VIIIa on the platelet surface to form a highly ...

Background Cavernous carotid arteriovenous fistulas (CCFs) are a relatively rare but fairly well documented intracranial vascular pathology. The most frequently utilized approach to treatment is endovascular embolization, via either transvenous or transarterial approaches, in order to close the venous outflow or limit the arterial inflow. The adopted standard algorithm to these options is to first attempt mapping a venous tract for catheterization. Frequently, the morphology of the venous drainage is in-sufficient for catheterization. Trans-arterial embolization is typically reserved for these instances given the well documented risks, including cranial nerve injury which approaches a 10% overall risk of complication. A third and less commonly used alternative for treating these difficult CCFs involves direct percutaneous access to the fistula. There are few published case reports documenting this direct access method, including our previous work describing a case in which we treated a clival ...

The authors reviewed 72 adult degenerative scoliosis or kyphosis patients treated between 2012 and 2014. Sixty of these patients (76.7% female with an average age of 61 years) with pre- and post-operative X-rays reached six-month follow up, with X-rays, Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and Scoliosis Research Society-22 (SRS-22) scores collected at each follow-up visit. Of these 60, 33 had been implanted with more than two cages and 27 had been implanted with less than two. Fière noted that these two groups had similar baseline demographic and clinical parameters, with the exception of body mass index scores.. Fière reported that patients implanted with more than two cages had more Smith-Petersen osteotomy (87% of the ,2 cage group compared with 59% of the ,2 cage group, p=0.011). Fewer patients in the ,2 cage group required bone morphogenic proteins (45.5%) to assist fusion than in the ,2 cage group (77.7%) (p=0.011), while more ,2 cage patients had fixation to sacrum/iliac (94%) than ,2 cage ...

Basic research in plasma medicine has made excellent progress and resulted in the fundamental insights that biological effects of cold atmospheric plasmas (CAP) are significantly caused by changes of the liquid environment of cells, and are dominated by redox-active species. First CAP sources are CE-certified as medical devices. Main focus of plasma application is on wound healing and treatment of infective skin diseases. Clinical applications in this field confirm the supportive effect of cold plasma treatment in acceleration of healing of chronic wounds above all in cases where conventional treatment fails. Cancer treatment is another actual and emerging field of CAP application. The ability of CAP to kill cancer cells by induction of apoptosis has been proved in vitro. First clinical applications of CAP in palliative care of cancer are realized.\\[4pt] In collaboration with Hans-Robert Metelmann, University Medicine Greifswald; Helmut Uhlemann, Klinikum Altenburger Land GmbH Altenburg; Anke ...

Background. Oncological patients with invasive fungal infections (IFI) have a high mortality. Many of them are treated empirically with wide spectrum antifungals (AF). They are an interesting target for antifungal stewardship programs. The aims of our study were to analyze the characteristics and appropriateness of the use of restricted antifungals (used as empirical and targeted therapy) in oncologic patients and to identify potential targets for antifungal stewardship (AFS) interventions. Methods. We performed a retrospective study, including all patients receiving candins, voriconazole, posaconazole and L-AmB, during suspicion of an IFI episode from September 2011 until September 2014 in a tertiary care center. Patients receiving fluconazole were excluded. To evaluate the adequacy of AF use, we scored from 0 to 10 considering: indication, drug selection, dosage, adjustment to microbiological results, switch to oral route and duration of therapy according to local guidelines. Results. In our ...
The surgical dislocation approach is useful in assessing and treating proximal femoral hip deformities commonly due to pediatric conditions. We sought to demonstrate the efficacy and problems associated with this technique. Diagnoses included slipped capital femoral epiphysis, Perthes disease, developmental dysplasia of the hip, osteonecrosis, and exostoses. Through this approach, femoral head-neck osteoplasty (22), intertrochanteric osteotomy (eight), femoral head-neck osteoplasty plus intertrochanteric osteotomy (15), femoral neck osteotomy (five), open reduction and internal fixation of an acute slipped capital femoral epiphysis with callus resection (five), open reduction and internal fixation of an acetabular fracture (one), trapdoor procedure (one), and acetabular rim osteoplasty (one) were performed. The average patient age was 16 years. The minimum followup was 12 months (average, 41.6 months; range, 12-73 months). Patients with Perthes disease and SCFE had preoperative and postoperative ...
Background: Due to improvements in diagnosis, the better outcomes of oncological patients and the increase in the average age, the incidence of synchronous tumours is likely to increase. Aim: To reflect on the challenges of a case with multiple integrated diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and to bring to consideration the increasing prevalence of similar situations. Case Presentation: In this clinical case, the authors describe the evolution of an asymptomatic patient with several synchronous tumours (a GEJ primary adenocarcinoma, a low grade urothelial carcinoma in situ, a localized squamous cell lung carcinoma and 2 IPMNs). Conclusion: The challenge of this case lies in the difficult diagnostic approach, the assembly of a multidisciplinary and time-sensitive treatment plan and the individualized follow-up, due to lack of guidelines. More research is needed in this area.
Conclusion: This case involved an extraosseous, intradural, four-level subaxial cervical chordoma that demonstrated significant extraspinal extension into the anterior soft tissues of the neck. PMID: 29142772 [PubMed]...

The anatomical restoration of the joint surface in intra-articular impacted fractures can be achieved mainly by two popularised methods: a) a bone punch using a cortical window that allows access to the depressed fragment or b) the balloon inflation osteoplasty.2-4 The first method involves the creation of a cortical window of 10 × 20 mm below the impacted osteochondral fragment. This allows a hollow trephine cutter of 10 mm to be introduced under fluoroscopic control 2 cm below the osteochondral defect. A bone punch of 9 mm is then introduced through the cutter and with a hammer, the osteochondral fragment is elevated.5,6 The bone block inside the cutter is then impacted under the fragment providing the graft material that will support and fill the defect. In cases where larger voids are created, alternative bone graft material can be used to provide structural support to the osteochondral fragments. Alternative instrumentation to the hollow trephine cutter includes the use of bone punches, ...
An anchor assembly for use in downhole slickline strings to set wellbore inflatables comprises, in one specific embodiment, an upper mandrel, an upper piston, radially extendable slips, a release piston in sliding engagement with a release mandrel, and a lower housing in sliding engagement with a lower mandrel. Fluid entering a bore of the anchor assembly forces the upper piston downward and extends the anchors. Thereafter, the slickline is reciprocated to pump fluid down the bore of the anchor assembly into the inflatable to prevent premature release of the inflatable. As the inflatable inflates, the lower housing is pulled downward along the lower mandrel until the inflatable is fully inflated. At a predetermined pressure after inflation of the inflatable, the anchors are retracted by actuation of the release piston so that the anchor assembly can be retrieved.
Low back pain (LBP) is common and most cases of LBP are handled either without any contact to the health care system or in primary care [1, 2]. However, some LBP patients develop severe or long-lasting pain with far-reaching consequences both personally and socioeconomically [3]. It is widely accepted that patients at risk of lasting back disability should be identified early in their course of LBP in order to prevent chronicity, and much effort has been put into investigating factors that predict non-recovery in LBP [4, 5]. Although variability in research methods and quality limits what can be concluded about useful predictors in LBP, it seems that self-reported information on symptoms and beliefs about LBP is as valuable from a prognostic angle as data from the clinical examination [4, 5]. It is therefore worthwhile to construct questionnaires focusing on such established prognostic indicators that can easily be filled in directly by patients.. The STarT back screening tool (SBT) was ...

Univariate (Mann-Withney/Kruskal-Wallis) and multivariate (linear regression, hierarchical clustering) statistical tests were performed between PVC-SUVBW-mean and biological indexes. ROC analysis was performed. PVC-SUVBW-mean thresholds were derived allowing to distinguish groups of BC patients with different biological characteristics. Specificity and Sensitivity were also calculated ...
Malignant melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer, with a rapidly increasing incidence rate. Despite recent advances in melanoma research following the approval of several novel targeted and immuno-therapies, the majority of oncological patients will ultimately perish from the disease. Thus, new effective drugs are still required. Starfish steroid glycosides possess different biological activities, including antitumor activity. The current study focused on the determination of the in vitro inhibitory activity and the mechanism of action of cyclic steroid glycosides isolated from the starfish Echinaster luzonicus-luzonicoside A (LuzA) and luzonicoside D (LuzD)-in human melanoma RPMI-7951 and SK-Mel-28 cell lines. LuzA inhibited proliferation, the formation of colonies, and the migration of SK-Mel-28 cells significantly more than LuzD. Anti-cancer activity has been ascribed to cell cycle regulation and apoptosis induction. The molecular mechanism of action appears to be related to the

We describe a technique to gain an additional endovascular access in acute situations in which a large-bore introducer is already inserted or in situations in which multiple accesses are impaired because of other reasons. Using an existing percutaneous femoral artery access, a second guide wire is inserted into the introducer, which is later withdrawn and applied onto one of the two guide wires. A double-wire access is then achieved. This access can be used, for example, for angiography or embolization catheters. This method might be useful in situations in which a quick and unplanned extra access is needed. It is, for example, applicable in hemodynamically unstable patients in whom percutaneous access can be difficult to obtain or in aortic endovascular procedures when an unplanned access is needed to insert an additional catheter for angiography and embolization ...

Almost every person with fibromyalgia describes their muscles as tight and full of painful muscle knots called trigger points. After I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia during medical school, I tried many different styles of massage, but got no benefit until I found a specialized technique called myofascial release pioneered by John Barnes, PT. This form of massage therapy involves using very slow but sustained gentle pressure to separate tiny adhesions in the muscle tissue and fascia, and this lessens muscle tension and gently breaks up knots in the connective tissue (to learn more about the vital importance of fascia in fibromyalgia, read my previous blog post). Two European studies found that myofascial release therapy was effective for reducing fibromyalgia pain, and that it gave long-lasting pain relief even at one month and six months after the last session. To find a John Barnes-trained therapist skilled in this technique go to www.mfrtherapists.com ...
Surgical decompression can offer long-lasting pain relief and restore sensation in diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy, leading to an improved quality of life.. That was the word from Stephen L. Barrett, DPM, an adjunct professor at Midwestern University College of Health Sciences, Podiatric Medicine Program and founder of Barrett Foot & Ankle in Phoenix, Arizona.. Dr. Barrett said that surgical decompression has been shown to restore sensation; reduce pain; prevent amputation and ulceration; improve balance and prevent falls; decrease global healthcare costs; and perhaps most importantly, improve the quality of life for diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy. 1. "Zhang, Li, and Xheng from the Department of Neurosurgery at XinHua Hospital published results of a study involving 560 diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy in 2013," Dr. Barrett said. "Their results, which amplify numerous previous studies, were summarized in their conclusion: Microsurgical decompression of ...

My question is, at my last post-op surgical visit, I was told that the bone isnt growing back at all. I had a bone graft inserted and thats all the bone thats there on X-ray. The surgeon has mentioned another major surgery (or more) which Im not keen for, but if it had to be…. Has anyone else had this issue with the bone not regrowing and an osteotomy performed?

Scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have identified a new way to deliver long-lasting pain relief through an ancient medical practice.. In an article published in the April 23 online edition of Molecular Pain, UNC researchers describe how exploiting the molecular mechanism behind acupuncture resulted in six-day pain relief in animal models. They call this new therapeutic approach PAPupuncture.. Principal investigator Mark J. Zylka, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology and the UNC Neuroscience Center, said this is a promising study that moves his labs work with prostatic acid phosphatase, known as PAP, towards translational research.. Several years ago, Zylka and members of his lab documented how injecting PAP into the spine eased chronic pain for up to three days in rodents. The only problem was PAPs delivery.. "Spinal injections are invasive and must be performed in a clinical setting, and hence are typically reserved for ...

  • Areas of current enquiry include various aspects of MSK oncology, technical and outcome studies of vertebroplasty and cementoplasty, Radiofrequency ablation of MSK tumors, utility of field-of-play MSK ultrasound at the elite athletic level (including at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics), T2 relaxation of cartilage and its association with bone marrow edema and meniscal tear morphology, imaging of femoral acetabular impingement, and bone stress and athletic performance.

  • The cementoplasty and screw fixation technique used was universally successful in the study population, who also demonstrated improved pain and mobility on postprocedural follow-up. (arrs.org)
  • Given the limitations of a small patient population, limited longitudinal follow-up, and insufficient comparison to other techniques, further inquiry is needed, but our results suggest that this cementoplasty and screw fixation technique may be an effective adjunct strategy in improving pain and reducing the pathologic fracture risk in patients with advanced osseous metastatic disease.
