Authors: Fyock M, Cortes N, Hulse A, Martin J Abstract Clinical Scenario: Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is a common knee injury in recreational adult runners, possibly caused by faulty mechanics. One possible approach to reduce this pain is to retrain the runner's gait. Current research suggests that no definitive gold standard treatment for PFP exists. Gait retraining utilizing visual feedback may reduce PFP in both the short and long term. Clinical Question: In adult runners diagnosed with PFP, does gait retraining with real-time visual feedback lead to a decrease in pain? Summary of Key Findings: A literature search...

Authors: Elfiky TA, Patil ND, Allam Y, Ragab R Abstract Study Design: A retrospective radiographic analysis. Purpose: The aim of the current study is to assess endplate changes after the use of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) cages in posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). Overview of Literature: A few recent reports had revealed endplate abnormalities due to PEEK cages, which may lead to nonunions. Methods: A retrospective computed tomography (CT)-based analysis of the endplate cavities and fusion status following PLIFs with PEEK cages was conducted by two independent observers. The term "cavity&qu...

This study investigated the therapeutic effects of human breast milk stem cell (BMSC)-conditioned medium (BMSC-CM) in a model of spinal cord injury (SCI) in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Overview of Literature: SCI is one of the leading causes of disability in addition to sensory and motor impairment. So far, there have been no successful treatments for SCI. Given the positive outcomes associated with using stem cells and their derivatives as a treatment for various diseases, there is a growing interest in using them as an SCI treatment. Recent research has demonstrated that CM from stem cells has therapeutic advantages. ...

CONCLUSION: Because 25-40% of cases of facial nerve palsy are not idiopathic, differential diagnosis is very important; key diagnostic methods include a clinical neurological examin- ation, otoscopy, and a lumbar puncture for cerebrospinal fluid examination. High-level evidence supports corticosteroid treatment for the idiopathic form of the disorder. PMID: 31709978 [PubMed - in process]

DISCUSSION: Delayed postvasectomy scrotal pain associated with hematospermia may be a sign of vasal recanalization. We propose that this symptom complex should prompt an investigation for vasal recanalization, during which the patient should be instructed to refrain from intercourse without the use of an additional method of contraception.

Hey all, Now that I am a couple years out of fellowship and in private practice I feel like my idealized view of pain medicine is not more realistic and somewhat more cynical. I was having a discussion with a colleague of mine who recently just graduated fellowship and is excited to start a new job and I was going over some of the realities and biggest points of pain for the pain provider. I was hoping to gain some insight into some other points of frustration or inefficiency other... Biggest Pains of Pain Practice

I have a young male patient with bothersome right hand paresthesias consistent with radiculopathy, tried gabapentin but had some sexual dysfunction so will not try anything else with that potential side effect (TCA, Cymbalta). NSAID not helpful, doesn't want anything "stronger" than that. Tried a bunch of muscle relaxants per PCP without help. CESi somewhat helpful. PT no help, chiro no help...any reccs on something else to help without affecting his libido?
