IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 2138: Screening of the Maturity Status of the Tibial Tuberosity by Ultrasonography in Higher Elementary School Grade Schoolchildren

In conclusion, for schoolchildren of higher elementary school grades, the risk of OSD is higher among girls with the epiphyseal stage. Cartilage thickness may not contribute to the diagnosis of OSD, since thick cartilage is not very common in OSD. However, cartilage thickness may reflect the status of OSD.

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is a condition that commonly consumes many resources and creates economic burden for the health care system. Evidence-informed care is crucial to guide management and prevent unnecessary procedures, including diagnostic imaging. Conservative therapy is currently recommended as the first-line and the most cost-effective treatment. Antibiotic therapy and surgical procedures are considered last resort treatment options for CLBP. The aim of this article is to summarize CLBP options for nurse practitioners (NP).

The Canadian Pain Task Force was established in March 2019 to help the Government of Canada better understand and address the needs of Canadians who live with pain. Through to December 2021, the Task Force is mandated to provide advice and information to guide government decision-makers towards an improved approach to the prevention and management of chronic pain in this country. The eight Task Force members include people personally impacted by chronic pain, researchers, educators, and health professionals with experience and expertise in preventing and managing chronic pain across major professional disciplines (i.e., me...

GoodsonAbstractFibromyalgia (FM) is one of the most common conditions that rheumatologists encounter. It is characterised by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances and impaired cognition. The prevalence of comorbid FM among populations with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are considerably higher than among the general population, with pooled prevalence estimates of 18–24% in RA, 14&n...

ConclusionTriadic communication can be advantageous in medical encounters; however, as differences exist depending on the individual medical setting, caution should be asserted in generalising findings.

ConclusionsA robust body of evidence examining SCS and PNS was identified. Only one study for PNFS and TENS was identified; both reported pain reductions. Generally, neurostimulation improved pain control. Future studies should examine the effectiveness of neurostimulation offered early in the trajectory of chronic pain.

Background: Many of those aging with HIV suffer from distal neuropathic pain (DNP) due to HIV-associated sensory neuropathy (HIV-SN). Prior studies have linked chronic pain conditions to a variant of the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), Val158Met. This variant confers reduced enzymatic activity and results in higher synaptic dopamine levels. Here we examined the role of Val158Met as a predictor of DNP in HIV-SN. Methods: In 1044 HIV-infected individuals enrolled in CNS HIV Antiretroviral Therapy Effects Research, an observational study across six US institutions, we characterized the relationship between Val158Met...

CONCLUSIONS: Considering the lack of strong evidence regarding wound care in HS, the authors propose the new concept of HS-TIME, based on the TIME wound bed preparation rules, as a new, helpful, easy-to-use tool that may assist physicians in identifying the best wound approach in these patients.
