Conclusions These findings indicate that the mechanical responses of the deep dorsal neck muscles differ between individuals with WAD and healthy controls, possibly reflecting that these muscles use altered strategies while performing a neck extension task. This finding provides new insight into neck muscles pathology in patients with chronic WAD and may help improve rehabilitation programs.

We present a rare case of acute tibialis posterior gouty tenosynovitis. An 82-year-old man with a history of well-controlled gout presented with acute onset of left ankle pain, occurring without inciting event. The medial ankle was slightly erythematous with moderate dorsal-medial swelling and mild dorsal-lateral swelling, with severe tenderness to palpation over the medial retro-malleolar region. Range of motion and manual muscle testing were pain limited throughout. Ultrasound examination revealed a left posterior tibialis tendon sheath tenosynovitis with effusion and overlying soft tissue edema. Tendon sheath aspirate r...

We present the case of a 72-year-old man with bilateral, diffuse, joint pain and swelling with elevated inflammatory markers suggestive of a systemic inflammatory polyarthropathy that developed acutely 2 days after lumbar zygapophyseal joint injection with hylan G-F 20. Systemic effects after hylan G-F 20 injection have not been well documented, and this is the first reported case of systemic inflammatory polyarthritis after injection, to our knowledge. Further research is needed to better establish the safety and efficacy of lumbar zygapophyseal joint injections with hylan G-F 20.

Authors: Wu PL, He YF, Yao HH, Hu B Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the expression level of martrilin-3 (MATN3) in patients with gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC) and to investigate the prognostic significance of MATN3. MATERIAL AND METHODS Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data were used to predict the expression and prognostic value of MATN3 mRNA in GAC patients. Seventy-six GAC patients had GAC tissue samples and paired adjacent normal tissue samples collected retrospectively to examine the MATN3 protein expression level by immunohistochemical staining. Furt...

In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help.
