Acute Peripheral Neuropathy and Chikungunya Infection (P3.308)

Conclusions:CHIKV infection is possibly associated with neuropathic pain, with potential lesion to small-fiber nerves. Acute carpal syndrome might be caused by mechanical compression caused by soft tissue edema, by a direct infectious neuritis or by immune-mediated mechanisms. Further research on its pathogenesis and long-term prognosis is warranted.Disclosure: Dr. Dantas Pagliarini has nothing to disclose. Dr. Passos dos Santos has nothing to disclose.

I tried searching but couldn't find a relevant thread. I was wondering if anyone has experience with a hospital employed job that compensates in "collections minus expenses." How exactly does this work in a hospital setting? The hospital is still getting the facility fee for each clinic visit (hospital clinic)/procedure - so I'm not really clear on what "expenses" are typically attributed to the physician. Can anyone share their pay structure with this kind of system?

ConclusionsUnplanned admissions are more frequently related to general anaesthesia, lengthy surgeries and procedures such as arthroscopy, hallux valgus corrections or removal of osteosynthesis material. The major reasons for unplanned admissions were inadequate postoperative pain management for overnight admissions and wound infection for admissions after discharge.ResumenObjetivoLos procedimientos de Cirugía Ortopédica y Traumatología (COT) realizados en Unidades de Cirugía Mayor Ambulatoria (CMA) ofrecen importantes ventajas que desaparecen cuando la recuperación postoperatoria no es la...

ConclusionIn the presence of an osteolytic lesion with perilesional oedema in the greater tuberosity, the intraosseous expansion of a calcifying tendinopathy should be included in the differential diagnosis. In our cases the arthroscopic treatment was successful.ResumenAntecedentes y ObjetivoLa tendinitis calcificante del manguito de los rotadores es una de las causas frecuentes de dolor en el hombro. El objetivo fue dar a conocer una presentación poco habitual de la tendinitis calcificante de hombro, la expansión intraósea, que en muchos casos puede ser confundida con una lesión tumoral o infec...

ConclusionsThe use of cement in OVF with relative indication led to the same clinical benefit in our sample as those with standard indication. A higher number of leakages occurred in the relative indication group with no clinical consequences or adjacent fractures.ResumenIntroducciónLa cementación vertebral ha demostrado eficacia en mejorar la calidad de vida y el dolor en fracturas vertebrales osteoporóticas (OVF) sin déficit neurológico no susceptibles de tratamiento conservador. Se aconseja emplearla en fracturas recientes, con aplastamiento 50% y>12 meses de evolución de la ...

CONCLUSIONS: Intra-observer reproducibility for thyroid nodule US reporting and US classification systems appears fairly adequate while the inter-observer agreement between different centers is lower than that assessed in single-center trials. Reporting and rating ability of thyroid US examiners still appear not consistent. An unified lexicon of thyroid US features, a simplified method of classification, and a dedicated training in the description of thyroid US findings may increase the observers' agreement and the predictive value of US classification systems in real world practice.

Conclusion: Following an initial non-diagnostic FNAB, the probability of yielding a diagnostic result declines with each sequential repeat FNAB. Nonetheless, a tangible possibility of malignancy remains even after repeated non-diagnostic FNABs.  . PMID: 31950884 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
