Conclusions: There are several ongoing efforts to use novel ablative therapies directed towards the brain. The recent development of techniques that allow for precise targeting, accurate delivery of thermal doses and real-time visualization of induced tissue damage during the procedure have resulted in novel techniques for cerebral ablation such as magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound or laser interstitial thermal therapy. However, older techniques such as radiofrequency thermal ablation or stereotactic radiosurgery still have a pivotal role in the management of a variety of neurological disorders. PMID: 315371...

Authors: Tomasian A, Jennings JW Abstract Minimally invasive percutaneous thermal ablation of osseous metastases has proved safe and effective in management of selected patients with bone metastatic disease. These procedures have become a part of the treatment algorithm for certain subgroup of patients with osseous metastases to achieve pain palliation and/or local tumor control. This review details the armamentarium available and the most recent advances in minimally invasive, percutaneous image-guided thermal ablation for management of osseous metastases.

I was out of work for 31 days, from August 16 until September 17. The reason is because I had surgery on my left knee, an arthroscopy of the medial meniscus. It got damaged somehow; the cause is unknown to me. It started becoming problematic sometime around Christmas 2018, but I didn’t really pay much attention to it. I figured it had to be something fairly minor which would resolve itself. However, it didn’t. And ultimately it led to my being evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon, having to get X-Rays and Magnetic Resonance Imaging on my knee, and finally having the surgical procedure performed to fix the problem...

Authors: Nuhmani S Abstract Patellar tendinopathy, or jumper's knee is a common musculoskeletal condition characterized by progressive activity-related pain on the anterior aspect of the knee and tenderness on the patellar tendon. A conservative method is often the first choice of treatment, which can include anti-inflammatory medication, injection therapies, physiotherapy, eccentric exercises, extra corporeal shock wave therapy, orthosis, etc. Although there are several treatment options available, the management of patellar tendinopathy is still controversial. The literature reveals many different injection metho...

Authors: Beita AKV, Whayne TF Abstract This review is directed at increasing awareness of two diverse rare upper gastrointestinal problems that occur at opposite ends of the age spectrum and are difficult to diagnose and treat. The superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) likely involves a young patient, especially female, and is especially associated with rapid weight loss, resulting in relative strangulation of the duodenum by a narrowing of the angle between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the aorta. On the other hand, atherosclerosis of the SMA is associated most likely with postprandial upper intest...
