Publication date: Available online 18 June 2018 Source:Burns Author(s): J. Kevin Bailey, Steffen Sammet, Jason Overocker, Beretta Craft-Coffman, Cristina M. Acevedo, Martin E. Cowan, Heather M. Powell As silver dressings gain more widespread use, it is more likely that patients with silver-based dressings will also undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In current practice, these dressings are removed prior to imaging due to concerns over heating and image distortion. As dressing changes can be painful, the need to remove dressings simply for MRI may increase pain and contribute to opioid dependency. To examine the nee...

The authors report the case of a 76 year-old woman presenting with leg pain, numbness and weakness mimicking a lumbosacral radiculopathy. Lumbar spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated mild root compression but lumbar decompression afforded only transient symptomatic relief. Post-operative MRI of the lumbosacral plexus and sciatic nerve revealed a gluteal venous varix compressing the sciatic nerve just distal to the piriformis muscle. Neurolysis and surgical resection of the offending varix resulted in resolution of her symptoms.

Authors: Williams SE, Hackett AJ, Jensen C, Riddle ML Abstract Posterior shoulder dislocation should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute shoulder pain and immobility following trauma. Although far less common then the anterior dislocation, it is associated with high rates of comorbidity. Seventy-nine percent of posterior shoulder dislocations are missed on initial presentation, which is partially responsible for the high rate of comorbidity associated with these injuries. The mechanism of injury is varied from generalized seizure to minor trauma, which adds to the complexity of the diagnosis. There...

Conclusion: An anomalous VA rarely causes cervical radiculopathy induced by neck flexion. When it occurs, microvascular decompression effectively relieves pressure resulting in a resolution of symptoms. PMID: 29900031 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: Posterior cervical decompression with coagulation of epidural venous plexus is a technique that seems effective in Hirayama disease in young subjects. It effectively treats patients by avoiding permanent cervical fixation. PMID: 29909974 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the impact of myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) in patients with articular disc displacement with reduction (DDWR) and to identify which clinical variables are associated with the concomitant presence of DDWR and MTrPs. Material and Methods 130 patients were selected that sought treatment due to joint pain, with ages ≥ 18 years, of both genders, with DDWR confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging. The sample was divided into two groups: Group 1, patients with DDWR and MTrPs (N=101); and Group 2, patients with DDWR and no MTrPs (N=29). Information on gender, age, pa...

ConclusionBrain imaging may reveal a secondary headache etiology in more than 25% of pregnant women presenting with acute headache. In particular, when the acute headache is of severe intensity, and the headache is accompanied by seizures or a change in consciousness, brain imaging is required.

Authors: Sebaaly A, Lahoud MJ, Rizkallah M, Kreichati G, Kharrat K Abstract The study aimed to review the etiology of failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) and to propose a treatment algorithm based on a systematic review of the current literature and individual experience. FBSS is a term that groups the conditions with recurring low back pain after spine surgery with or without a radicular component. Since the information on FBSS incidence is limited, data needs to be retrieved from old studies. It is generally accepted that its incidence ranges between 10% and 40% after lumbar laminectomy with or without fusion. Al...
