Cochrane is made up of 13,000 members and over 50,000 supporters come from more than 130 countries, worldwide. Our volunteers and contributors are researchers, health professionals, patients, carers, people passionate about improving health outcomes for everyone, everywhere.Cochrane is an incredible community of people who all play their part in improving health and healthcare globally. We believe that by putting trusted evidence at the heart of health decisions we can achieve a world of improved health for all. Many of our contributors are young people working with Cochrane as researchers, citizen scientists, medical students, and volunteer language translators and we want to recognize the work of this generation of contributors as part of this series called, Cochrane’s “30 under 30. " In this series, we will interview 30 young people, 30 years old or younger who are contributing to Cochrane activities in a range of ways, all promoting evidence-informed health decision making across the world. We will be hearing from them in a series of interviewees published over the coming months.We're keen to hear from you. Would you like to take part in this series?

Conclusion: PRM with 40 cm H2O performed either alone or accompanied by IPS is a promising intervention for alleviating shoulder pain within 48 hours following gynecologic laparoscopy. PMID: 32765908 [PubMed]
Authors: Zhou W, Zhou Y, Wang M, Qian C, Wang C, Tang J, Cai Z, Dai W, Zhu X Abstract Peripheral nerve injury (PNI)-induced neuropathic pain is a prevalent and severe clinical problem. It has been shown that microglia-mediated neuroinflammation plays a crucial role in neuropathic pain. The present study investigated the abnormal expression of C-X-C motif chemokine receptor type 2 (CXCR2) in a rat L5 spinal nerve ligation (SNL) model and evaluated the role of SB225002, a specific antagonist of CXCR2, in repressing neuroinflammation and neuropathic pain. It was found that CXCR2 expression was significantly upregulate...
DISCUSSION: In our patient cohort, 94% of patients developed postoperative wound complication. Only 44% of patients ever successfully ambulated with a prosthesis after Chopart amputation, and the others (56%) required revision amputations such as a BKA. Even after wound healing, Chopart amputees may struggle with obtaining a prosthesis suitable for ambulation. Surgeons should exercise judicious patient selection before performing Chopart amputation. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: IV, Case Series. PMID: 32769724 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Gil JA, Goodman AD, Kleiner J, Walsh DF, Kosinski LR, Hsu R Abstract INTRODUCTION: The incidence of geriatric ankle fractures is rising. With the substantial variation in the physiologic and functional status within this age group, our null hypothesis was that mortality and complications of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) between patients who are aged 65 to 79 are equivalent to ORIF in patients who are aged 80 to 89. METHODS: Patients with ankle fracture were identified using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification diagnosis codes. Patients treate...
Authors: Schmidt T, Simske NM, Audet MA, Benedick A, Kim CY, Vallier HA Abstract INTRODUCTION: It is well known that patients with diabetes mellitus experience higher complication rates after torsional ankle fracture; however, the functional consequences remain less clear. The goal of this study was to determine the effects of diabetes on complications, secondary operations, and functional outcomes after torsional ankle fracture. METHODS: Nine hundred seventy-nine adult patients treated surgically for a torsional ankle injury (Orthopaedic Trauma Association 44B, 44C) over 13 years were retrospectively reviewed....
Conclusions: Health care workers may strengthen the patient's knowledge of an "advance care plan" by health education during the dialysis treatment and provide information on websites for the patients. Impact statement: Hospital managers should train their staff to provide health teachings for an advance care plan. PMID: 32746719 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
