Publication date: November 2019Source: International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, Volume 74Author(s): Trond Kongsvik, Øyvind Dahl, Ingunn Marie Holmen, Trine ThorvaldsenAbstractFew studies have explored the potential connection between safety climate and health issues. However, some recent research findings indicate that a poor safety climate can be considered a stressor that may be associated with physical symptoms and musculoskeletal complaints. This link is further explored in the present study on the basis of a questionnaire study of 446 sharp-end workers in the Norwegian aquaculture industry. The analysis ...

Conclusions Surgical repair with muscle flap coverage, with or without ligation of profunda femoris artery, does not affect prognosis. An alternative method for identifying healthy segments of femoral artery may be frozen section and examination of the artery to decrease the risk of recurrence at the site of anastomosis.RESUMO Contexto A doen ça de Behçet (DB) é uma enfermidade autoimune que envolve múltiplos sistemas. A manifestação arterial mais comum em pacientes com DB é o pseudoaneurisma, que tem uma frequência mais alta do que a formação de aneurism...

A SCP é responsável por 16-31% dos casos de dor pélvica crônica, sendo d iagnosticada sobretudo na terceira e quarta décadas de vida. Nos últimos anos, houve um interesse maior nessa patologia por parte dos cirurgiões vasculares devido à sua associação com insufici&e...

Introduction Exercise therapy (ET) is advocated as a treatment for chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNSLBP). However, therapy effect sizes remain low. In other chronic disorders, training at higher intensity has resulted in greater improvements on both general health related and disease specific outcomes compared to lower-intensity ET. Possibly, high-intensity training also improves effect sizes in CNSLBP. Objective To compare the effects of a high-intensity ET program with a similar moderate-intensity ET program on disability, pain, function, exercise capacity, and abdominal/back muscle strength in persons with CNS...

AbstractThe aim of the study was to compare CE-MRV with DANTE-SPACE on a 1.5T MRI system for the diagnosis of DVT. The patients were diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremities based on swelling, pain, and superficial varicose veins of the lower extremities. MRI examination confirmed the diagnosis. DANTE-SPACE images were obtained before the conventional contrast-enhanced MRV, which uses gadolinium. The scanning field started from the end of the inferior vena cava to the end of the ankle, divided into five observation segments, namely, the common iliac vein, external iliac vein, femoral vein, popliteal v...

Authors: Peng L, Zheng HY, Dai Y Abstract The aim of this study was to explore the analgesic effect of local application of compound lidocaine/prilocaine cream on cancer wounds during wound care in order to reduce the amount of morphine intake or completely replace the systemic morphine administration and optimize the protocol for cancer wound pain management. All patients were enrolled with a visual analog scale (VAS) pain score ≥4. Before wound care, 60 patients were randomly divided into 2 groups of 30 each: morphine group (10 mg tablet); topical 5% compound lidocaine cream group (0.2 g/cm2). VAS scores, hear...

The purpose of this retrospective case series was to report a new surgical technique for lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL) repair using a cortical button and the clinical results. Twenty patients underwent a LUCL repair using a cortical button at a single institution were included for evaluation of the demographic, radiologic, and clinical examination data. Nine patients returned for a separate study visit for further clinical examination and outcome surveys. Eighteen patients (mean age: 48 y, 10 males) received at least 1 additional procedure other than a LUCL repair. For the 9 patients who returned for a st...
