Bisphosphonate therapy for spinal aneurysmal bone cysts

ConclusionsBisphosphonate therapy can be used as the definitive treatment of spinal ABCs, except in patients with instability or progressive neurology, where surgical intervention is required. Clinicians should expect a patients symptoms to rapidly improve, their bone oedema to resolve by 3  months and their lesion to partially or completely ossify by 6–12 months.

Publication date: Available online 19 May 2018 Source:Joint Bone Spine Author(s): Clément Prati, Céline Demougeot, Xavier Guillot, Maxime Sondag, Frank Verhoeven, Daniel Wendling Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory joint disease that involves the entheses, causing inflammatory pain and functional impairments. Patients may experience extraarticular manifestations such as uveitis, psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease. These, together with the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis and the development of spinal fusion, are the main determinants of adverse disease outcom...

Publication date: Available online 19 May 2018 Source:The Veterinary Journal Author(s): Kate White, Mike Targett, John Harris Specific primary afferent fibres termed nociceptors are responsible for transmitting nociceptive information. Centrally the axonal terminals of these fibres synapse with secondary projection neurones in the spinal dorsal horn to transmit nociceptive information to the higher centres in the brain. Irrespective of the presence or absence of nociceptive inflow the activity of dorsal horn neurones is modulated by, amongst other things, local interneurones and descending midbrain and brainstem networks ...

Authors: Da Silva Santos R, Galdino G Abstract Exercise-induced analgesia is a phenomenon discussed worldwide. This effect began to be investigated in the early 1970s in healthy individuals and rodents during and after an acute or chronic session of running or swimming. Thereafter, studies found this effect was also induced by resistance exercises. Over the years, many studies have demonstrated the importance of exercise-induced analgesia in relieving pain caused by different conditions, such as fibromyalgia, low back pain, neuropathy, and osteoarthritis. This review aims to provide the reader with an in-depth desc...
