We report the case of a 14 year old male athlete who presented to our institution 6 weeks after sustaining a displaced ischial tuberosity avulsion fracture. He underwent open reduction and internal fixation using a cannulated screw system via a posterior approach, with excellent results at 18 months follow-up. We report our surgical findings in detail as well as a novel method for post-operatively assessing functional screw head prominence-the seated radiograph.

From aberrant cytokine signaling to shifts in immune cell populations, it is clear that endometriosis develops in the setting of an elevated pro-inflammatory state. This elevated level of inflammation could exacerbate the morbidity seen in this chronic disease. Consequently, numerous immunomodulating therapies have been tested i...

AbstractIntroduction and hypothesisMidurethral slings (MUS) are an established treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI), with good objective outcomes and low rates of complications. However, large population-based registry studies highlighted long-term complications from polypropylene slings including erosion, dyspareunia and chronic pain. With recent highly negative media coverage, many women are presenting with chronic pain attributed to the mesh to request complete removal. The available literature provides limited evidence on safety, symptom resolution and incontinence following MUS removal.MethodsWe identified ...

Conclusions: The effect of acupuncture varies greatly with the different schedules of acupuncture, so it is necessary to review and choose the appropriate schedule. Although the current work is based on a limited number of trials, the findings suggest that acupuncture has a dose and frequency effect presenting within a certain range, which would have considerable implications for the design and interpretation of clinical trials. More high-quality randomized controlled trials on acupuncture schedule research were needed for providing more definitive evidence. PMID: 31316572 [PubMed]

Knee pain due to arthritis or injury is the second most common cause of chronic pain in the United States. Osteoarthritis affects more than 30 million adults in the United States. And the rate of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears among children and teens has been increasing about 2.3% per year for the past two decades, according to a new study. The specific cause of a patient’s knee pain has always been difficult to determine because diagnostic tools such as x-ray or MRI only image the joint in a static standing or lying down position, not in motion when the patient is feeling pain. â€...
