What level of inflammation leads to structural damage in the sacroiliac joints?

ConclusionsWhileextensiveSIJ BMO was a strong independent predictor for development of structural lesions,limited/intermediateBMO were mostly transient and only rarely evolved intoextensiveBMO or structural lesions. These findings enhance our understanding of the natural development of SIJ lesions and indicate different progression patterns forlimited/intermediate vs.extensiveBMO, possibly due to different aetiologies.This article is protected by copyright.

CONCLUSION: The evidence of VR effectiveness is promising in chronic neck pain and shoulder impingement syndrome. VR and exercises have similar effects in rheumatoid arthritis, knee arthritis, ankle instability, and post-anterior cruciate reconstruction. For fibromyalgia and back pain, as well as after knee arthroplasty, the evidence of VR effectiveness compared to exercise is absent or inconclusive. PMID: 31343702 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The authors regret that “rheumatoid arthritis; cancer; or diabetes” were listed as examples of components in the “Tissue injury or pathology” category instead of the “Comorbidities” category in Table 2 on page 1035 of our article. Additionally, the last sentence in the “Outcomes” category was removed. The c orrected Table 2 is shown below. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Authors: Sions JM, Crippen DC, Hicks GE, Alroumi AM, Manal TJ, Pohlig RT Abstract Study design: Cross-sectional study. Background: Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is an effective tool for stimulating multifidus muscle contractions. Ultrasound imaging (USI) is valid and reliable for quantifying multifidus activity represented by percent thickness change from a resting to contracted state. Thus, USI may be used to help determine optimal NMES intensity. Objectives: To explore NMES intensity effects on multifidus thickening in adults with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Methods: Sixty patients wit...

Conclusion: This case arose as a sequela of staphylococcal endocarditis associated with persistent bacteremia and immunological dysregulation. The diagnosis of right-sided endocarditis is easily missing, multidisciplinary approach should be triggered as soon as possible, which might lead to a better outcome. Right-sided IE is still an important public health issue in southern Taiwan.

The indices designed for monitoring the disease should be valid, reliable and cross-culturally adapted for decision-making concerning the appropriate treatment.

Rationale: An accessory sacroiliac (SI) joint usually has little clinical significance. However, severe arthritic changes can cause chronic buttock or low back pain and can be misdiagnosed as another disease presenting with sacroiliitis such as ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Patient concerns: A 33-year-old woman was diagnosed with AS due to chronic buttock pain and progressive sacroiliitis on plain X-ray and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Her buttock and low back pain gradually worsened despite proper treatment for AS. Diagnosis: Computed tomography revealed an accessory SI joint with arthritic changes. Intervent...
