Authors: Choi ES, Kim YI, Kang HG, Kim JH, Kim HS, Lin PP Abstract The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the surgical technique and to show the results of percutaneous cementoplasty (PC) for acetabular metastases using lateral approach under regional anesthesia. Forty-two cases underwent PC for acetabular metastases. The PC was performed using spinal anesthesia, lateral approach and fluoroscopic guidance. We assessed visual analogue scale (VAS) and revised musculoskeletal tumor society (MSTS) rating system and maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of the acetabular lesion using F-18-FDG PET/CT before and...

This study provided some pioneering ideas for encapsulating small molecule drug with poor solubility. The optimized microspheres could be chosen as an ideal candidate for the ropivacaine sustained release with its better drug adherence, lower toxicity of drug burst release and best therapeutic effect.Graphical abstract

This article presents a case report of a 39-yr-old woman with pain, pruritus, and a hyperpigmented area in the right dorsal infra scapular region. The diagnosis of notalgia paresthetica was established. She was successfully treated with topical anesthetics, postural corrective exercises, scapular muscle strengthening, and pectoral muscle stretching. In this context, different treatment options were reviewed. A small set of pharmacological and nonpharmacological techniques were identified. Several of these modalities belong to the physical medicine and rehabilitation field of action.

AbstractInflammation is the body ’s response to injury and infection, involving a complex biological response of the somatosensory, immune, autonomic, and vascular systems. Inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandin, proinflammatory cytokines, and chemokines induce pain via direct activation of nociceptors, the primary sensory neurons that detect noxious stimuli. Neurogenic inflammation is triggered by nerve activation and results in neuropeptide release and rapid plasma extravasation and edema, contributing to pain conditions such as headache. Neuroinflammation is a localized inflammation in the peripheral nervous...

Authors: Loriga B, Di Filippo A, Tofani L, Signorini P, Caporossi T, Barca F, De Gaudio AR, Rizzo S, Adembri C Abstract BACKGROUND: The control of postoperative pain (POP) is a key component of perioperative care. POP after vitreo-retinal surgery (VRS) has been under-investigated, and its incidence remains elusive. METHODS: In order to assess POP after VRS, the associated risk factors and efficacy of the analgesic protocol in use at our institution, we made a 1-year retrospective study on patients undergoing VRS. Patients aged>18 years, ASA status I-III undergoing VRS entered the study. POP was evaluated by ...

Authors: Lee A, May A, Obremskey WT Abstract Necrotizing soft-tissue infections are caused by a variety of bacterial pathogens that may affect patients at any age or health status. This orthopaedic emergency initially presents with nonspecific signs such as erythema and edema. As the disease progresses, classic signs such as bullae, cutaneous anesthesia, ecchymosis, tense edema, and gas can be seen. A high level of suspicion is needed to properly identify and treat in a timely manner. Pain out of proportion to presentation and rapid progression even with appropriate antibiotic treatment should heighten suspicion of...

This study retrospectively investigated the efficacy of the ESP block in pain management after lumbar spinal surgery. Methods: Patients who underwent lumbar spinal surgery in 2017 were enrolled in the study. Those who underwent secondary surgery with local anesthesia other than the ESP block were excluded. The primary outcome was the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) pain score at various time points until the morning of postoperative day 2. The secondary outcomes were the amount of intravenous fentanyl administered during the first 24 hours following the surgery and the number of patients with complaints of complications s...

THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF REGIONAL ANESTHESIA (ASRA) and Pain Medicine recently published updated guidance on the management of local anesthetic systemic toxicity (LAST).1,2 Organ systems that are primarily disrupted by toxic doses of local anesthetics include the cardiovascular system and central nervous system (CNS). Mild prodromal symptoms may progress to major complications such as seizures, cardiac arrest, or death. Treatment is multifactorial and involves the use of 20% lipid emulsion therapy as the antidote.
