Authors: Frank RM, Cotter EJ, Strauss EJ, Jazrawi LM, Romeo AA Abstract Management of proximal and distal biceps tendon pathology is evolving. The long head of the biceps tendon, if inflamed, may be a pain-producing structure. In appropriately indicated patients, a symptomatic long head of the biceps tendon can be surgically managed via tenotomy, tenodesis, and/or superior labrum anterior to posterior repair. In some patients, primary superior labrum anterior to posterior pathology can be managed via biceps tenodesis. Determining which procedure is most appropriate for and which technique and implant are preferred ...

There are alterations in the 3-Dimensional scapular orientations in patients with chronic non-specific neck pain compared to healthy controls. Therefore, the scapular control may also be examined in patients with neck pain and it can be included in the rehabilitation program if needed.
ConclusionLow-volume prescribers in the social network ’s periphery were at greater risk of intended or discoordinated prescribing than interconnected high-volume prescribers. Interventions addressing discoordination among low-volume opioid prescribers in non-integrated practices should be a priority. Demands for enhanced functionality and integration of Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs or referrals to specialized multidisciplinary pain management centers are potential policy implications.
Conclusion: In this multicentric observational study, referral to an FRP was linked to pain, self-reported physical activity and sick leave but not medical characteristics assessed. These findings confirm the bio-psycho-social approach of FRPs for cLBP.
Conclusion. These data demonstrate that DM may contribute to IDD by increasing aggrecan degradation and promoting cell apoptosis, which may represent early indicators of the involvement of DM in the pathogenesis of IDD. Level of Evidence: N/A
Study Design. A longitudinal cotwin control study of the Vietnam Era Twin Registry. Objective. The aim of this study was to examine the association of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms with incident chronic back pain (CBP), while controlling for genetic factors and early family environment. Summary of Background Data. It is unknown whether PTSD symptoms are associated with an increased incidence of CBP. Methods. In 2010 to 2012, a baseline survey was undertaken as part of a large-scale study of PTSD. Study participants completed the PTSD Symptom Checklist (PCL) and a self-report measure of CBP. In 2...
AbstractEhlers –Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a genetically heterogeneous group of inherited connective tissue disorders classified into six major types with a variable collection of findings and different inheritance patterns. Although complications occur in about one-half of pregnancies in women with EDS, the maj ority can have a good outcome if managed appropriately. Classic EDS is characterized by joint hypermobility, loose skin with poor healing and easy bruising, musculoskeletal problems with chronic pain and at risk for pre-term delivery. In addition, the vascular form of EDS can have cardiac anomalies, aneurysms...
ConclusionCEP is a variant of EP with low or absent trophoblast activity. A prolonged clinical course is typical and surgery is the mainstay of treatment.
