This study describes a 10-year-old male patient, clinically diagnosed as having SWB, with congenital aortic stenosis and mental retardation, who was followed up by a cardiologist, psychologist, geneticist, speech therapist, and physiotherapist.
Sialolithiasis is the most common form of obstructive sialadenitis. It is caused by the formation of a sialolith, a rigid structure generally consisting of an organic matrix and a mixture of different calcium phosphates. Its etiology is uncertain but could be a result of a chronic sialadenitis. The most affected gland is the submandibular. Although it may occur at any age, there is a prevalence in male adults older than 40 years. It can be either symptomatic or asymptomatic; the treatment varies from clinical control to physiotherapy to surgical procedures.
Conclusion: The AHD and CSA were reliably measured in the true AP radiographic view. Both radiographic features (AHD35°) were able to confirm the presence of a major RC pathology. However, the AHD
ConclusionDespite a focus on individualisation and exercise adherence, barriers remained in the longer term. Strong therapeutic alliance during treatment appeared to facilitate adherence to exercise and general physical activity. The findings highlight ongoing physiotherapy support and therapeutic alliance as targets for future adherence-enhancing interventions for exercise in older adults with knee pain.

ConclusionsIn patients with a fluid collection in the pleural space, the addition of positive pressure to mobilisation and respiratory techniques decreased the duration of thoracic drainage, length of hospital stay, pulmonary complications, antibiotic use and treatment costs.RegistrationClinicalTrials.gov NCT02246946.
