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...

By SAURABH JHA, MD Despite an area under the ROC curve of 1, Cassandra’s prophesies were never believed. She neither hedged nor relied on retrospective data – her predictions, such as the Trojan war, were prospectively validated. In medicine, a new type of Cassandra has emerged –  one who speaks in probabilistic tongue, forked unevenly between the probability of being right and the possibility of being wrong. One who, by conceding that she may be categorically wrong, is technically never wrong. We call these new Minervas “predictions.” The Owl of Minerva flies above its denominator. ...

Discussion: Until now, positive effect of LIPUS have been reported on osteonecrosis of knee, hip joint and jaw bone. However, there have been, to our knowledge, no report on applying LIPUS for these difficult conditions. LIPUS therapy seems beneficial for pain relief and bone regeneration for massive osteonecrosis after CIR. Accepted June 13, 2019 Copyright © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.

Authors: Arrigoni F, Bruno F, Palumbo P, Zugaro L, Zoccali C, Barile A, Masciocchi C Abstract Background: Interventional radiology, thanks to its low invasiveness and possibility to reduce the average time for the patients to come back to their normal activity, is becoming more and more promising and diffused in multiple fields. Employed without needles, MRgFUS is probably the less invasive techniques among the ones belonging to the field of interventional radiology. Purpose: To evaluate safety and effectiveness of MRgFUS in the treatment of a rare and benign, though disabling, bone lesion: intra-articular osteobla...

ConclusionThe laparoscopic reverse technique is an alternative approach to face retrocervical or rectovaginal nodules infiltrating the anterior rectal wall. In this technique, the separation of the nodule from the rectal wall is performed at the end of the surgery and not at the beginning as performed within the traditional technique. This enables the surgeon to perform a more precise dissection of the endometriotic nodule from the rectal wall because of the increased mobility of the bowel. The wider range of movements serves as an ergonomic advantage for the subsequent dissection of the lesion from the rectum, allowi...
