Study Design. Prospective research in middle-aged and elderly people. Objective. To investigate low back pain (LBP) and neuropathic pain (NeP); spinal alignment and range of motion (ROM); spinal degenerative changes in plain radiography; osteoporosis; muscle strength; and physical ability as possible risk factors for poor quality of life (QOL). Summary of Background Data. The aging of society has led to an increase in elderly people with chronic pain, including LBP and NeP. However, there has been no analysis of NeP and spinal sagittal alignment as potential risk factors for decreased QOL in the healthy general pop...

Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. To identify age-related changes in cervical sagittal parameters using standard radiographs. Summary of Background Data. Cervical sagittal balance is important for the maintenance of neutral head posture and horizontal gaze. Degenerative changes in the cervical spine that occur with aging may alter cervical sagittal balance, which can lead to chronic neck pain and predispose to various cervical spine pathologies. Methods. We performed a retrospective cohort study of 151 patients with lateral cervical spine radiographs taken at our institution between December 2...

ABSTRACTFibrous dysplasia (FD) is a mosaic skeletal disorder resulting in fractures, deformity, and functional impairment. Clinical evaluation has been limited by a lack of surrogate endpoints capable of quantitating disease activity. The purpose of this study was to investigate the utility of18F ‐NaF PET/CT imaging in quantifying disease activity in patients with FD. Fifteen consecutively evaluated subjects underwent whole‐body18F ‐NaF PET/CT scans, and FD burden was assessed by quantifying FD‐related18F ‐NaF activity.18F ‐NaF PET/CT parameters obtained included (i) SUVmax (standardized uptake value [SUV] of t...

Conclusions: In conclusion, additions of postoperative transdermal clonidine and perioperative oral gabapentin together were found to improve functional outcomes following PSF surgery. Group G and C had reduced opioid use and shorter hospital stay than group P. Addition of these adjuncts together was found to be better since group C patients made fewer PCA attempts to obtain morphine over the first 10-hour period postoperatively and were able to ambulate sooner than group G. The PCA pump usage pattern provides useful information about patient comfort and efficacy of adjunctive medications. Level of Evidence: Level II&...

ConclusionResults of the current study demonstrated that thoracoplasty associated with posteromedial translation technique did not alter PFT results at two years postoperation. The morbidity of the procedure is limited, and it can therefore be considered in patients with high cosmetic demand and significant residual rib hump after main curve correction. However, hump height and pain evaluation would be interesting data in a prospective study.Level of EvidenceLevel IV.

ConclusionsWMSDs are common among female workers in a hazelnut factory. Reorganizing of working posture, work-related factors, and stress at work may be beneficial to decrease the prevalence of WMSDs and pain severity.Relevance to Industry; The female workers in the hazelnut factory are vulnerable to the work-related musculoskeletal disorders, particularly in the spinal region. The employers should endeavor to improve the health of the workers by the adjustment of the working posture and environmental factors.

ConclusionSternoclavicular dislocation after spine kyphotic deformity correction is presented for the first time; however, it is not possible to establish a causative association. Additional studies are necessary to delineate the role of the sternoclavicular complex in Scheuermann ’s disease.

ConclusionBilateral bi-level ESP blocks are a simple method of providing pre-emptive regional analgesia in extensive multi-level spine surgery. Integration of ESP blocks into a multimodal regimen that employs other opioid-sparing strategies may have additive, and potentially synergistic, benefits in improving postoperative analgesia and reducing opioid requirements.
