Effectiveness of standardized ultrasound guided percutaneous treatment of lateral epicondylitis with application of autologous blood, dextrose or perforation only on pain: a study protocol for a multi-center, blinded, randomized controlled trial with a 1  year follow up

In the treatment of Lateral Epicondylitis (LE) no single intervention concerning injection therapies has been proven to be the most effective with regard to pain reduction. In this trial 3 injection therapies ...

I was recently hired as a consultant to review claims for services provided by about 2 dozen DPMs. The fraud and the abuse are staggering. Most of those involved are young associates in private practices. The practice owners impressed these associates with how much money they can make if they bill as instructed. I have reviewed cases for an initial visit with unilateral heel pain. The patient ended up with BILATERAL xrays, ultrasound and fluoroscopy all for “comparison”. Patients... Fraud

Prashant Sirohiya, Vinod Kumar, Pratishtha Yadav, Sachidanand Jee BhartiIndian Journal of Palliative Care 2020 26(1):140-141 Glossopharyngeal nerve (GPN) block is used for pain management in patients' head and neck malignancy. The GPN is a mixed nerve containing both motor and sensory fibers. The usual approaches for GPN blocks are usually topical, intraoral, or peristyloid. Topical anesthesia may be difficult in patients with limited mouth opening or when there is inflammation in the area of interest. Intraoral and peristyloid approaches have risk of inadvertent neurovascular injection. The intraoral technique may le...

Conclusion: It may be employed either alone or in combination with cryotherapy, existing chemotherapy, bypass surgery or radiations to achieve the optimal results in these patients. Nevertheless, there is a need to formulate a uniform dose and procedure to achieve homogeneity and develop references for clinical practices. PMID: 31977258 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Most patients with surgically confirmed adnexal torsion are of reproductive age and present with acute or subacute pain. Common ultrasound signs are an enlarged organ, the "whirlpool sign", and "ovarian stromal edema with or without peripherally displaced antral follicles", and free fluid in the pelvis. The "follicular ring sign" and absence of Doppler signals are slightly less common signs. Recognizing ultrasound signs of adnexal torsion is important so that correct treatment, i.e. surgery without delay, can be offered. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. ...

CONCLUSIONS: The only sex difference was in SCM thickness. However, smaller SCMs in women did not result in less SCM SWE stiffness. We provided normative values for US-based imaging of the cervical-flexor and -extensor muscles in young and athletic men and women. PMID: 31967864 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsIsolated falciform and round-ligament inflammation and necrosis is a rare condition that is difficult to diagnose because it can present mimicking a wide variety of intra-abdominal pathologies, particularly gallbladder pathologies. It is often best treated by laparoscopic resection. Unlike prior reports, our review of the literature, which is the largest that we know of to date, shows that males and females are equally affected. Greater awareness of this entity will aid in future diagnosis.

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with no history of coronary risk factors or chest pain who experienced intermittent chest pain at rest for several minutes from 2 PM. At 8 AM the next day, chest pain recurred and persisted for about 1 hour. She was transported to our hospital by ambulance, where electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in the precordial leads, and blood tests showed elevation of cardiac markers. She was diagnosed with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Because she was a young woman without any risk factors, coronary spastic angina was suspected. Coronary angiography without intracoronary nitrate adm...

AbstractBackgroundOvarian torsion is a common concern in girls presenting to emergency care with pelvic or abdominal pain. The diagnosis is challenging to make accurately and quickly, relying on a combination of physical exam, history and radiologic evaluation. Failure to establish the diagnosis in a timely fashion can result in irreversible ovarian ischemia with implications for future fertility. Ultrasound is the mainstay of evaluation for ovarian torsion in the pediatric population. However, even with a high index of suspicion, imaging features are not pathognomonic.ObjectiveWe sought to develop an algorithm to aid radi...
