Publication date: Available online 18 May 2019Source: Personalized Medicine UniverseAuthor(s): Simon AllenAbstractIntroductionThe incidence of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is high. Thermobalancing therapy (TT) with Dr Allen's Therapeutic Device (DATD) improves the condition of men with CP/CPPS by treating the cause of this disease. The aim of this study is to improve management of CP/CPPS.MethodsA clinical trial observed the dynamics of clinical characteristics and parameters in 45 men with CP/CPPS who used DATD, before and after a 6-month period of therapy, and in a no-treatment group. Evalua...

Publication date: Available online 18 May 2019Source: Journal of Herbal MedicineAuthor(s): Richard Komakech, Youngmin KangAbstractMedicinal plants have been an integral part of the healthcare system for centuries. Prunus africana, an evergreen plant of the family Rosaceae in sub-Saharan Africa, has been used to treat numerous diseases and disorders since time immemorial. Over the past decades, several ethnomedicinal surveys were conducted in many communities across Africa which validated the use of P. africana in traditional medicine. The increased interest in P. africana across the globe has led to several pharmacological...

This study was conducted to compare a lactulose oral solution with a polyethylene glycol (PEG) formulation for colonoscopy preparation using the following metrics: quality of cleansing, colonoscopy outcomes, patient/physician satisfaction, and patient tolerability. Methods: The enrolled patients were randomly divided into two groups and received a single 2 L dose of either PEG (PEG group) or lactulose (Lac group). The Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BBPS) was used for assessing the cleansing quality of the bowel preparations. Patient tolerability and adverse events were obtained through the completion of questio...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Intervertebral disc degeneration is a major cause of chronic low back pain, and excessive loading contributes to intervertebral disc degeneration. However, the lack of an effective bipedal in vivo animal model limits research about this condition. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: To evaluate the utility of a new type of bipedal standing mouse model for intervertebral disc degeneration, we asked: (1) Are there spinal degeneration changes in bipedal mice as determined by lumbar disc height, histologic features, and immunohistochemistry measures compared with control mice? (2) Are the bipedal mice compar...

Abstract BACKGROUND: The effect of the preoperative exposure to controlled substances such as benzodiazepines and sedative/hypnotics on prolonged opioid consumption after hand surgery is not known. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Is preoperative exposure to benzodiazepines and sedative/hypnotics associated with greater numbers of filled postoperative opioid prescriptions after hand surgery? (2) Is a positive history of the use of more than one controlled substance, a mood disorder, or smoking associated with greater numbers of filled opioid prescriptions after surgery? (3) Is preoperative exposure to opioids associat...

CONCLUSIONS: In this small series, we found this approach sufficiently durable to continue its use for patients with acetabular metastases with collapse or those not responding to nonoperative measures. However, comparison studies are needed to determine whether it is superior or inferior to other available alternatives. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level IV, therapeutic study.

AbstractFracture of the polyethylene tibial post in the posterior-stabilized total knee prosthesis is often delayed in diagnosis due to its nonspecific symptoms and the radiolucent characteristic of polyethylene on conventional radiography. Therefore, the diagnosis is always established by arthroscopy. Notwithstanding recent advances in imaging modalities, we are presently aware of only two related case reports on MRI and even no reports about arthrographic or CT-arthrographic diagnosis of fractured tibial post. We hereby report a case of a 58-year-old female patient who developed recurrent knee pain during the third year ...
