The device delivers a mild level of current via electrodes positioned on the skin to interfere with the pain signal and stimulate the release of the body’s own natural painkiller to reduce the pain. This paper presents the materials and fabrication methods used to manufacture a textile based wearable electronic textile (e-textile) with electrodes embedded ...

Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Edward Thomas Haupt, Kevin O'Keefe, Kevin FarmerAbstractThe long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) is a frequent source of disorders and pathology in the shoulder. Significant evidence is available on the management of disorders of the LHBT in the literature, and the LHBT is frequently addressed intraoperatively when involved in shoulder pathology. An all-arthroscopic, intra-articular biceps tenodesis with suture anchor fixation has several advantages that have not been well described previously, and it does not add significant morbid...

It is defined as the expansion in the synovial membrane of the posterolateral part of the knee that lies between the lateral meniscus and the tendon of the popliteus muscle. The popliteus bursa extends approximately 1 cm distal to the joint line and has 4 borders; the medial border is the peripheral margin of the lateral meniscus, the lateral border is t...
This article analyses how the discursive production of dying, the good death, and the issue of institutionalisation at the end of life are interrelated. The study empirically investigates a parliamentary enquiry on dying with dignity that took place in Austria between 2014 and 2015. It employs the Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse to analyse parliamentary documents and minutes, written statements submitted by individuals and organisations, as well as newspaper articles. Data analysis shows a restrictive and a permissive normative position considering both killing on request and assisted suicide. Apart from their...
ConclusionAmong the patients with VCD/VCF, the false negative rate among was 23.9% (17/71), but the missed cases were all minimal or mild grades. One or more VCFs were missed in 32.4% (23/71) of the cases with multiple VCFs. Appropriate severity grading was not reported for most cases.
Discussion and conclusionThe Authors, as a result of the present study, suggest that office hysteroscopy should be sussessful at the first attempt, because the majority of patients (58%), in case of a failed procedure, do not undergo a repeat hysteroscopy in a reasonable time and important diagnosis, such as that of endometrial cancer, may be missed or delayed. In order to increase the procedure success rate, prior to the scheduled hysteroscopy they recommend to counsel all patients, identifying those who may benefit from pharmacological cervical softening, local anesthetic injection or the use of small caliber hysteroscopes.
ConclusionsMBIs appear to be an effective treatment for fatigue in PwMS. The optimal MBI in this context remains unclear. Further research into MBI optimisation, cost- and comparative-effectiveness is required.
