Effect of Physical Methods of Lymphatic Drainage on Postexercise Recovery of Mixed Martial Arts Athletes
Conclusions: The lymphatic drainage methods, whether manual or using electro-stimulation and DO, improve postexercise regeneration of the forearm muscles of MMA athletes. The methods can be an important element of therapeutic management focused on optimizing training effects and reducing the risk of injuries of the combat sports athletes.
This study was conducted to clarify the therapeutic effect of focused ultrasound in patients with various painful bone and joint diseases that are associated with local tenderness. Ten patients with BM, 11 patients with lumbar facet joint osteoarthritis (L-OA), and 19 patients with knee osteoarthritis (K-OA) were included. MRgFUS treatment was applied to the bone surface with real-time temperature monitoring at the target sites. Pain intensity was assessed using a 100 mm numerical rating scale (NRS) at various time points. Pressure pain threshold (PPT) was evaluated on the sonication area and control sites. Compared...
CONCLUSIONS: Lateral hip pain is a common presenting complaint in patients with hip pain and is reported in a small proportion of patients post THA. No statistically significant relationship was found between radiographic measurements and ultrasound findings in our patient cohort. However, we describe the range of measurements obtained from the normal asymptomatic hip in this large cohort of patients, which may aid in the evaluation and management of patients with lateral hip pain.

ConclusionTo our knowledge, Mirizzi syndrome with concurrent cholecystocolonic fistula is exceedingly rare with a paucity of reports within the literature. Our report discusses principles of management of Mirizzi syndrome as well as best practices of surgical management for Mirizzi syndrome with concurrent cholecystocolonic fistula.
Conclusion Clinical assessment and X-rays are typically sufficient for a hand specialist to diagnose and manage chronic wrist pain and few patients require additional imaging. Level of Evidence This is a Level III study. [...] Thieme Medical Publishers 333 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001, USA.Article in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents | Abstract | Full text
CONCLUSION: ACUTE ABDOMEN sonographic approach in acute abdomen can play an important role in ruling out critical diagnosis, and can guide emergency physician or any critical care physician in patient management. PMID: 31544223 [PubMed]
ConclusionACUTE ABDOMEN sonographic approach in acute abdomen can play an important role in ruling out critical diagnosis, and can guide emergency physician or any critical care physician in patient management.
Conclusions: There are several ongoing efforts to use novel ablative therapies directed towards the brain. The recent development of techniques that allow for precise targeting, accurate delivery of thermal doses and real-time visualization of induced tissue damage during the procedure have resulted in novel techniques for cerebral ablation such as magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound or laser interstitial thermal therapy. However, older techniques such as radiofrequency thermal ablation or stereotactic radiosurgery still have a pivotal role in the management of a variety of neurological disorders. PMID: 315371...
ConclusionsSelective same ‐day discharge after AF ablation is safe and feasible using a streamlined peri‐procedural care protocol. Wider adoption can potentially reduce health‐care costs while improving patient experience.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved
BY MATTHEW WU, &DEANDRE WILLIANS, MDA 2-year-old girl presented to the emergency department for abdominal pain with urination. She had been diagnosed with a urinary tract infection three days earlier, and was in the process of completing a course of antibiotics.The pain with urination made it difficult to void urine even when soaking in warm baths, according to the patient's parents. Her mother said the patient had to be bribed to drink anything. Their daughter did not urinate for 14 hours before arriving at our ED. They were concerned about dehydration due to the lack of fluid intake. The patient also refused to ta...
Regional analgesia continues to evolve with the introduction of ultrasound-guided fascial plane blocks. Erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a novel technique gaining recent acceptability as a perioperative modality of analgesia in various thoracic and abdominal surgeries. However, literature on the use of ESPB in pediatric cardiac surgery is limited.
