Longitudinal myelitis secondary to an acute flare of systemic lupus erythematosus has been reported in the literature. There have been few published cases of complete functional recovery in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus–related longitudinal myelitis (systemic lupus erythematosus–related longitudinal myelitis). Of those cases, none have described in detail the rehabilitation course of treatment. In the current case, intensive rehabilitation was coupled with aggressive pharmaceutical treatment resulting in almost full functional recovery. A 23-yr-old African American woman with a history of systemic ...

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Justin Hallock, Larry D. FieldAbstractThe formation of heterotopic ossification around the shoulder is a rare but potentially debilitating condition. It is found most commonly around the hip and is usually associated with an inciting event such as trauma, burn, previous surgery, or traumatic brain/spinal cord injury. The formation of shoulder heterotopic ossification following arthroscopic surgery is very uncommon, with few data pertaining to it in the current literature. Formation of heterotopic ossification in the shoulder after ...

You shouldn ’t feel ashamed for feeling suicidal. Here’s how you can push back.I saw a news item a few months ago that troubled me.[1] At first, the item was in regard to a K-pop idol (Goo Hara) who my third oldest daughter and I enjoyed watching and listening to in the group, KARA. During KARA’s heyday, my daughter and I followed all their videos and song releases. It was fun —at least until she discovered a guy who had his own rock band. Then dad and K-pop were replaced with an electric guitar and a husband. Poor Daddy.Reading about anybody’s suicide attempt is heartbreaking, but Goo’s...

In the Scheetz household, back-to-school anxiety reached new heights this fall. Jami Scheetz’s 15-year-old son Devon, who has severe asthma, kicked a brutal vaping habit over the summer, with help from a nicotine patch. But as soon as school started and he was once again around kids vaping, his habit returned. On Sept. 12, Devon vaped at school and immediately began sweating and vomiting. Though Scheetz, who lives in Sellersville, Pa., says her son is now fine, she can’t shake thoughts of kids who have been hospitalized or died after using e-cigarettes. “Vaping scares me more [than smoking], because they ...

Spine metastases affect more than 70% of terminal cancer patients that eventually suffer from severe pain and neurological symptoms. Nevertheless, in the overwhelming majority of the cases, a spinal metastasis represents just one location of a diffuse systemic disease. Therefore, the best practice for treatment of spinal metastases depends on many different aspects of an oncological disease, including the assessment of neurological status, pain, location, and dissemination of the disease as well as the ability to predict the risk of disease progression with neurological worsening, benefits and risks associated to treatment...

ConclusionsPartial C7, complete T1 and T2, and partial T3 bilateral laminectomy was performed for evacuation of the spinal epidural hematoma. Following a 2-week course of acute inpatient rehabilitation, the patient returned to his baseline functional status. This case highlights the risks of self-manipulation of the neck and potentially other activities that significantly stretch or apply torque to the cervical spine. It also presents a clinical scenario in which practitioners of spinal manipulation therapy should be aware of patients undergoing anticoagulation therapy.

To retrospectively investigate trunk-pelvis kinematic outcomes among persons with unilateral transtibial and transfemoral limb loss with time from initial independent ambulation with a prosthesis, while secondarily describing self-reported presence and intensity of low back pain. Over time, increasing trunk-pelvis range of motion and decreasing trunk-pelvis coordination with increasing presence and/or intensity of low back pain were hypothesized. Additionally, less trunk-pelvis range of motion and more trunk-pelvis coordination for persons with more distal limb loss was hypothesized.

ConclusionSixty-two point nine percent TCS patients had TV. Although these findings indicate that TV is common in patients with TCS, no significant difference is observed in most of the studied anomalies. However, there were some differences among the TV groups and TV types in relation to congenital malformations. It can be concluded that TV anomaly could be a distinct malformation apart from all the other anomalies that were studied. Transitional vertebrae may cause pain due to biomechanical changes in addition to progressive neurological symptoms which are usually seen with TCS.
