AbstractIntroductionThe treatment of persistent cervical radicular pain (CRP) by CT-guided epidural steroid injections (CTESI) by a transforaminal anterolateral (TFA) approach is associated with rare but serious complications. Two recently described transforaminal posterolateral (TFP) and transfacet indirect (TFT) approaches may be safer options, but have not been extensively evaluated. We compared the efficacy of three CTESI approaches (TFA, TFP, and TFT) in the treatment of persistent CRP (>6  weeks).MethodsPatients were prospectively assessed for pain using the visual analog scale (VAS) and for functional disabi...

CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that besides delivering high-quality acoustic care, practitioners should continuously check patients' requirements for psychosocial treatment due to a loss of quality of life. The development of a specific psychotherapeutic treatment for hearing-impaired clients requires additional research focused on protective and vulnerability factors which may influence the emergence of mental disorders in these patients.

Conclusions Decreased handgrip strength was associated with increased odds for each ADL limitation, and in turn, most individual ADL impairments were associated with a higher hazard for mortality in older adults. These findings provide insights into the disabling process by identifying which ADL limitations are most impacted by decreased handgrip strength and the subsequent time to mortality for each ADL disability.
