Authors: Hellwinkel JE, McCarty EC, Khodaee M Abstract Sports-related injuries to the shoulder are common causes of disability. Injuries to the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) in sports are more rare, though have been reported in a small number of cases. SCJ injury classification is determined by the degree of joint displacement and direction of clavicular displacement. Direction of displacement is particularly important due to risk of injury to intrathoracic structures, which has the potential to result in fatal outcomes. These injuries are important to identify in athletes and can be difficult to assess on the field...
This article highlights the diagnostic and therapeutic value of ultrasonography-guided hip injections for an orthopedic practice. The focus is on sonographic anatomy, introduction to technique, common indications, and pearls and pitfalls of these procedures. PMID: 30640742 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionConservative non-pharmacologic therapies reflect an adequate strategy to relief pain in elite athletes. Chronic states of pain reflect more complex scenarios requiring further comprehensive techniques. Future research should thus also address multimodal approaches combining several of the mentioned therapies.RésuméActualitésLa douleur aiguë est un signe d’alerte qui induit l’arrêt de la pratique sportive. Lorsqu’elle se prolonge, la douleur limite l’activité de l’athlète et peut anticiper la fin de sa carrière. Soigner la douleur e...

Publication date: Available online 16 January 2019Source: NeuroImageAuthor(s): Nick Todd, Yongzhi Zhang, Chanikarn Power, Lino Becerra, David Borsook, Margaret Livingstone, Nathan McDannoldAbstractThe technology of transcranial focused ultrasound (FUS) enables a novel approach to neuromodulation, a tool for selective manipulation of brain function to be used in neurobiology research and with potential applications in clinical treatment. The method uses transcranial focused ultrasound to non-invasively open the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in a localized region such that a systemically injected neurotransmitter chemical can be...
