Conclusion: Rheumatologists highly valued patient-reported RA symptoms and physical function to inform their treatment decisions, even above objective data such as physical findings and test results. These results can guide the selection of validated PRO measures to assess these domains to inform the clinical care of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. PMID: 31517249 [PubMed]

However in most of these studies the control and test knees were present in different patients thus incorporating a large amount of bias in the results. Therefore, the present study was designed in which patients with bilateral osteoarthritis knee were incl...

Publication date: Available online 13 September 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Anu Kansal, John HughesAbstractPain is one of the most common symptoms that patient presents with. Visceral organs were thought to be insensitive to pain in the past, but we now know this is not true. It is more common than somatic pain and originates from the internal organs in the thorax, abdomen or pelvis. These organs are innervated by the parasympathetic (vagus and sacral parasympathetic fibres) and sympathetic (thoracolumbar sympathetic chain: T1–L2) nervous systems. The afferent and efferent fibres to...

Authors: Sarzi-Puttini P, Batticciotto A, Atzeni F, Bazzichi L, Di Franco M, Salaffi F, Marotto D, Ceribelli A, Ablin JN, Hauser W Abstract Introduction: Clinicians involved in pain management can finally include cannabis or cannabis-related products in their therapeutic armamentarium as a growing number of countries have approved them for pain relief. Despite the several benefits attributed to analgesic, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties of cannabinoids, there are still significant areas of uncertainty concerning their use in many fields of medicine. The biosynthesis and inactivation of cannabinoid...

We report a case of Fournier's gangrene complicated by massive lymphedema of the scrotum and right leg in a 43 year-old man from Panama, presumably filarial. This case highlights the surgical management of a patient requiring emergent intervention and multidisciplinary approach of reconstructive repair in the acute care setting.

Publication date: Available online 12 September 2019Source: Orthopaedics &Traumatology: Surgery &ResearchAuthor(s): Christophe GarinAbstract“Enhanced recovery after surgery” is now the official term: ERAS. Patients come to a specialized center for surgery, and early recovery is ensured by minimizing the impact of surgical stress, controlling pain and stimulating autonomy. Patient information and education concerning the process and care organization enable short hospital stay with early discharge. The expected benefits are fewer postoperative complications and shorter hospital stay. There is nothing to ...
