Authors: Chawla JJ, Arora D, Sandhu N, Jain M, Kumari A Abstract Separation of pubic symphysis during delivery is a rare complication resulting in considerable and prolonged morbidity for parturient women. The usual presentation is that of something giving way in the region of the symphysis pubis sometimes with an audible crack at the time of delivery. Unbearable pain on moving from side-to-side and on performing any weight-bearing activity (such as walking or climbing stairs) precludes ambulation in the immediate postpartum period. This could be accompanied by disruption of the sacroiliac joint, hemorrhage, or uri...

Conclusions NSAID use was associated with higher executive function, and memory scores in certain subjects and larger cortical volumes in particular regions. Limitations of the study include secondary analysis of existing data and the possibility of confounding. Implications These results suggest it is important to consider the secondary effects of medications when choosing a treatment regimen. Further prospective studies are needed to examine the role of analgesics on cognition and whether NSAIDs act through cortical dimension changes and how they are related to gender and cognitive diagnosis.

Conclusion Spndyloarthritis should be considered in FMF patients with associated sacroiliitis especially when there are leading symptoms and/or imaging abnormalities in the spine. Awareness of this co-existence is important among rheumatologsits for a timely and precise management plan.

Authors: Patience A, Helliwell PS, Siddle HJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a heterogeneous chronic inflammatory arthritis characterised by a range of musculoskeletal conditions including enthesitis, dactylitis and synovitis as well as skin and nail manifestations. The foot is a complex mixture of tissues, all of which can be involved in this disease and is frequently the presenting feature. Areas covered: In this under-researched area, articles were reviewed from the authors' publications as well as from other known authors. This review will discuss how PsA affects the foot and ankle with a pa...

ConclusionCompetitive rock climbing results in physiological adaptations in the fingers, an example being significant soft-tissue hypertrophy of the flexor. US demonstrated several non-physiological changes in response to repetitive stress in half of the climbers. MRI showed additional stress injuries to the growth plate, joints and bone.

Authors: Hernandez A, Haddad S, Nuñez JH, Gargallo-Margarit A, Sallent A, Barro V Abstract Ischiofemoral impingement syndrome is a rare clinical entity characterized by chronic groin, buttock or hip pain associated with radiographic evidence of narrowing of the space between the lesser femoral trochanter and the ischial tuberosity. Introduction of magnetic resonance imaging to the clinical practice as well as the establishment of the radiological definition of the abnormal ischiofemoral distance has led to an increasing interest in this condition. Ischiofemoral impingement syndrome is a poorly understood dis...

Authors: Rhee SM, Oh JH Abstract Background: Few comparative studies have reported on the use of biologic grafts for irreparable massive rotator cuff tears. The purpose of this study was to assess the results of arthroscopic bridging graft in irreparable massive rotator cuff tears using an autogenic long head of biceps tendon (LHBT) or an allogenic dermal patch (ADP). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 24 patients treated using the LHBT (group I) and eight patients with complete rupture of the LHBT treated using an ADP (group II) since 2011. Preoperative Goutallier's fatty degeneration, range of motion (ROM),...

Conclusions: The results show that traction beds are highly effective for disc movement and lower back pain relief. Also, an optimal angle for traction can be obtained in a 3D model analysis using CT or magnetic resonance imaging images. The optimal angle would be different for different patients and thus should be determined based on the decreased height of the intervertebral disc, weight and height of patients.

Authors: Papalia R, Papalia G, Russo F, Diaz LA, Bressi F, Sterzi S, Denaro V Abstract Meniscal extrusion (ME) has shown to play a critical but still unclear role in osteoarthritis (OA) development. ME has been described as an important risk factor in the progression of knee OA, as it is involved in the thinning of articular cartilage, joint space narrowing, spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee and subchondral bone marrow lesions. Meniscal damage of any degree of severity could cause ME in both compartments, but it is commonly associated with severe meniscal tears or root tears mainly in the medial meniscus. Magne...

A 22-year-old nulligravida woman presented with intermittent flank pain. All laboratory results were within the normal limits including CA 125 and CA 19-9. Abdominal ultrasound revealed mixed echoic bilateral ovarian cysts up to 3 cm in size with perplexing components in the left ovary. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed the presence of a 2.8 cm cystic mass with a hyper-signal on T1 and hypotensive T2-weighted images on the left ovary and 1.4 cm and 2.7 cm masses with T1 high fatty components on the right ovary were found (Fig.1).
