l L Abstract Necrotizing fasciitis is a fulminant and potentially life-threatening infection of the skin and soft tissue. It is usually caused by a combination of different bacteria and is often due to assumed minor trauma. Clinically, only relatively insignificant skin changes are initially present, such as blistering or erythema. They are often accompanied by excessive pain. In the further course, the massive systemic reaction becomes predominant. The diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis is primarily clinical, which can be supported by laboratory parameters (LRINEC score) and computed tomography imaging....

This study aimed to confirm the correlations among hip extension range of motion, hip extension asymmetry, pain intensity, disability index, and compensatory lumbar movement in patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain. MATERIAL AND METHODS Of 66 patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain and limited hip extension, 59 met the inclusion criteria and were enrolled in the study. Pain intensity, Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), hip range of motion, compensatory lumbar extension, and compensatory lumbar rotation of the subjects were assessed. Pain was measured using a numeric pain rating scale (NPRS), and hip extensi...

Just as the thread title states. I currently utilize the Kimberly-Clark/halyard/Avanos machine. It is what I used in fellowship and when started in practice a little more than 10 years ago I got the same one. I really like cooled RFA in the lumbar spine especially for obese patients or patients with tough anatomy. It is great to be able to come in perpendicular because you get a very true view of the junction being squared up and you are obliqued so you get anterior enough without... RFA machine shopping: needs: perpendicular lesion ability and multilesion ability

This article describes a patient who presented to the ED with abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. A CT scan revealed dilated loops of bowel with an adjacent air-filled structure, possibly related to an internal hernia. Meckel diverticulum was discovered on diagnostic laparoscopy and a mesodiverticular band was lysed; the diverticulum was left in situ. The patient did well without further invention needed.
