Authors: Ricci V, Özçakar L Abstract Muscle injuries are very common in sports medicine, but involvement of the paraspinal muscles is relatively rare. The diagnosis is usually clinical, but diagnostic imaging modalities (ie, ultrasound and magnetic resonance) identify, in detail, the anatomical site and extension of the lesion helping the physician plan a specific rehabilitation program. Likewise, the authors present an unusual case of a amateur volleyball player who suffered injury of the paraspinal muscles after a session of manual therapy with deep massage. The authors also highlight the potenti...

This study aims to assess whether ultrasound-guided injection of platelet-rich plasma can safely and effectively treat symptoms associated with acetabular hip labral tears. Design Institutional review board approval was gained for a prospective study of eight patients (N = 8), who have previously failed conservative management, to receive ultrasound-guided injection of platelet-rich plasma at the site of hip labrum tear. We assessed pain reduction and functional ability at baseline and then 2, 6, and 8 wks after injection, using the visual analog scale and Harris Hip Score, respectively. Results Statistically signifi...

Introduction Ozone has been recently used as a safe alternative treatment in musculoskeletal disorders with fewer adverse effects than corticosteroids. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of a single injection of ozone with that of a corticosteroid in the treatment of shoulder impingement. Design Thirty patients with shoulder pain and clinical signs and symptoms of impingement were randomly assigned into two groups: ultrasound-guided injection with ozone or corticosteroid. Patients’ symptoms were evaluated by visual analog scale, constant score, shoulder pain and disability scale, shoulder range of...

We describe a case of posttraumatic chronic intercostal neuralgia, in which successful pain relief was achieved via repeated injections of local anesthetic and steroid combinations in the serratus anterior plane under ultrasonographic guidance. This novel technique is easy to administer, reliable, and warrants further investigation with regard to its use for rehabilitation of patients who are experiencing posttraumatic chronic neuropathies of the chest wall.

AbstractRegional anesthesia provides effective anesthesia and pain relief in infants with age-specific data attesting to safety and efficacy. Regional anesthesia decreases exposure to opioids and general anesthetic agents and associated adverse drug effects, suppresses the stress response, and provides better hemodynamic stability compared to general anesthesia. Regional anesthesia can prevent long-term behavioral responses to pain. As a result, the overall number and variety of nerve blocks being used in infants is increasing. While neuraxial blocks are the most common blocks performed in infants, the introduction of ultr...

Publication date: Available online 15 October 2019Source: Annals of Medicine and SurgeryAuthor(s): Sardar Hassan Arif, Ayad Ahmad MohammedAbstractAbdomen cocoon is a rare disease in which a thick peritoneal membrane wraps the intestine causing the bowel loops to adhere to each other. It may be either primary(idiopathic) or secondary to other causes like previous abdominal surgery. Most patients present with abdominal pain and intestinal obstruction. The condition is usually diagnosed intraoperatively.Case 1A 30-year-old male patient presented with abdominal pain and bilious vomiting. The patient had similar previous attack...

We report on a 13-year-old boy who presented with right iliac fossa pain associated with anorexia, tenderness, guarding and rebound tenderness. Abdominal ultrasound showed findings of acute appendicitis. However, laparoscopy revealed a wooden toothpick perforating MD and a hyperemic appendix. The FB was removed and laparoscopic diverticulectomy and appendectomy performed. Perforation of MD by a FB is a diagnostic challenge and it should be included in the differential diagnosis of acute abdomen in children.
