The data, based on search terms, was collected from January to mid-December. Last year, some of the top health-related questions searched on Google included what causes hiccups, how to stop snoring, how long flu lasts and what is lupus.

Here’s a look at the top trending health-related questions for this year — along with their answers. 1. What is the keto diet? The ketogenic or “keto” diet topped the list of trending health-related questions searched on Google this year. The diet is high in fats, moderate in proteins and very low in carbs.

This requires a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in pain sensitization and chronification. In this review, we discuss how peripheral inflammation, as occurs during an infection, modulates the central pain system. In rodents, neonatal inflammation leads to increased pain sensitivity in adulthood by priming immune components both peripherally and central...

GhaiAbstractDisruption of the plantar plate is a common cause of forefoot pain, metatarsalgia, and metatarsophalangeal joint malalignment. Although surgical repair of the plantar plate has improved, there has been no consensus on the clinical superiority of any single technique, or combination of techniques, described in the literature to date. In this publication, we report a case of plantar plate injury treated with an innovative new technique with 20-month follow-up.

We report a case of a 48-year-old female who presented four months following a low-energy trauma with symptoms most consistent with adhesive capsulitis. An MRI demonstrated extensive patchy areas of intramuscular edema-like signal involving the lateral head of the deltoid with associated muscle atrophy, in keeping with a subacute denervation injury. She was diagnosed with quadrilateral space syndrome (QSS) and successfully treated with an fluoroscopic-guided corticosteroid injection. At her two-year follow-up, the patient had regained full function and had no lasting symptoms. Non-specific symptoms like ill-defined shoulde...

Abstract: Preeclampsia is a complication of pregnancy that affects approximately 4% of pregnancies. Preeclampsia is defined as new-onset hypertension after 20 weeks gestation often accompanied by new-onset proteinuria. Women who experience preeclampsia during pregnancy are at an increased risk for hypertension and stroke later in life. Healthcare providers should screen women appropriately to minimize risk.
