This study used Oswestry Disability Index (ODI)-self-comparison and showed that acupuncture treatments for lumber disc herniation and sciatica demonstrated significant improvement in long term clinical outcomes. A total of 112 lumbar disc herniation and sciatica cases were treated with electric acupuncture for pain relief and function improvement from July 1998 to December 2006.ResultsAll the 112 cases filled out the ODI forms prior to receiving treatment. Among the 112 patients, 23 of them did not finish the 6-week treatments. 89 cases were evaluated with ODI after 6-week acupuncture treatments. Of those 89 cases, 67 case...

Abstract Fascioliasis is a food-borne anthropozoonotic disease caused by Fasciola hepatica that affects multiple hosts, including humans. We herein report the first case of human fascioliasis in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. A 57-year-old female patient complaining of abdominal pain was admitted to the hospital for a clinical investigation. The diagnosis of F. hepatica was confirmed by ultrasound and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Authorities of the Northern coast of Santa Catarina were notified to investigate other cases and risk factors for contamination. The disease is also prevalent in cattle, which...

Authors: Vinck EE, Villarreal RA, Luna-Jaspe C, Cabrera LF, Peterson TF, Bernal F, Roa CL Abstract Background: The intra-operative classification of appendicitis defines postoperative treatment. The correct designation can influence patient recovery, complications and hospital costs. Recent research has shown that intra-operative classification criteria varies among surgeons, and is not always the same as the pathologist's report. Classification accuracy can lower costs by preventing unnecessary treatment or sub-optimal interventions. Methods: During a period of 4 months, N = 133 appendix specimens we...

The Washington Post recently received access to a database maintained by the Drug Enforcement Administration that tracks the manufacture and distribution of every prescription opioid in the country. It  reported that 76 billion pills were distributed throughout the US between 2006 and 2012, with higher volumes shipped to the areas that were most hard hit with opioid-related overdose deaths. This is being offered as proof that the overprescribing of prescription opioids caused the overdose crisis. But this flies in the face of other powerful evidence. Research reported in the  Journal of Pain Research&nb...

Conclusions: Poisoning was predominant in unmarried young males from lower economic class. The most common type of poisoning was suicidal, route was oral and agent was chemicals. Vomiting and pain in abdomen were the most common clinical features. Chemical poisoning was highly associated with renal failure and aspiration chemical pneumonitis requiring ventilator support and high mortality. Chemical agent of poisoning, Intravenous route of poisoning, requirement of mechanical ventilation, duration of hospital stay were significantly associated with mortality.

Conclusion: Significant (90%) pain relief achieved within 24 to 48 hours in eighteen (81.81%) patients. Cath lab-PVP increases safety, early mobility without analgesics. Small volume PMMA is optimal and less prone for complication. Cath lab PVP fluoroscopy with its increased PMMA radio opacity monitors bone filling well. It has less procedural time and better psychological impact on the minds of geriatric. PMID: 31309795 [PubMed - in process]

Marijuana legalization is in motion: step by step, state by state. Counting Washington, where I live, twelve states have already passed recreational marijuana legislation. At least seven more states, including New York and Minnesota, both traditionally liberal states, are slated for similar legalization in 2019.  While stopping the weed train is unlikely (there are profits to be made in this new frontier), ensuring that its brakes and safety protocols are in working order is imperative. Protections for our most vulnerable populations — adolescents, young adults, and people with mental illness issues — ough...
