Prevalence of Chronic Nonspecific Low Back Pain and Its Associated Factors among Middle-Aged and Elderly People: An Analysis Based on Data from a Musculoskeletal Examination in Japan. Asian Spine J. 2017 Dec;11(6):989-997 Authors: Iizuka Y, Iizuka H, Mieda T, Tsunoda D, Sasaki T, Tajika T, Yamamoto A, Takagishi K Abstract Study Design: A cross-sectional study. Purpose: To clarify the prevalence of chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNSLBP) and its associated factors among middle-aged and elderly Japanese individuals using data from a musculoskeletal examination conducted in general Japanese populations. Overview of Literature: Most studies evaluating low back pain-associated factors have been conducted in Western countries, but they have not always evaluated CNSLBP. Methods: We obtained data on 213 subjects aged>50 years who responded to a survey regarding age, gender, body mass index, lifestyle-related diseases (diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia), glucocorticoid use, smoking and alcohol-drinking habits, labor intensity, and chronic low back pain (CLBP) and underwent screening for lumbar spinal stenosis, evaluation for quality of life (QOL), and evaluation for specific spinal pathology via thoracolumbar spine X-rays. We investigated the prevalence of CNSLBP and association between CNSLBP and measured variables. Results: The prevalence of CNSLBP and chronic specific low back pain (CSLBP) was 15.4% and 9.3%, respectively...

CONCLUSION: WFRP is fast and effective in screening for diabetic retinopathy. The severity grade of the disease was similar to the gold standard of FRP in most cases. WFRP could thus be used in mass screening for diabetic retinopathy. PMID: 31104875 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionIntrathecal (S)-(+)-Ketoprofen caused dose-dependent neurohistopathological changes in rats on days 3 and 7 after injection, suggesting that (S)-(+)-Ketoprofen should not be intrathecally administered.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosA administração intratecal de anti-inflamatórios não esteroides é mais eficaz no tratamento da dor pós-operatória. A Anti-inflamatórios não esteroides, como o (S)-(+)-cetoprofeno, pode ser eficaz em doses intratecais inferiores às parenterais; a segurança pré-clínica relativa à possí...
