Effects of autologous adipose-derived regenerative stem cells administered at the time of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction on knee function and graft healing. J Orthop Surg (Hong Kong). 2019 Sep-Dec;27(3):2309499019867580 Authors: Alentorn-Geli E, Seijas R, Martínez-De la Torre A, Cuscó X, Steinbacher G, Álvarez-Díaz P, Barastegui D, Navarro J, Serra-Renom JM, Nishishinya B, Català J, Laiz P, García-Balletbó M, Cugat R Abstract PURPOSE: To compare the healing and clinical outcomes of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction between patients with or without intraoperative administration of adipose-derived regenerative stem cells (ADRC). METHODS: Between 2013 and 2014, the outcomes of 20 soccer players undergoing ACL reconstruction using bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft infiltrated with ADRC at the end of the procedure were compared to a historical, matched cohort of 19 soccer players undergoing the same procedure without ADRC. Outcomes were obtained at baseline, and 6 and 12 months postop for IKDC (International Knee Documentation Committee), Lysholm, and Lequesne, and at 2, 4, 6, and 12 months postop for VAS (visual analogue scale) for pain and graft maturation to evaluate the ligamentization process (magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based). RESULTS: Both groups significantly improved the IKDC (p

AbstractObjectivesThe study aimed to compare the acetaminophen administration efficacy or its combination with codeine for pain control in acute apical abscesses cases.Materials and MethodsThirty-nine patients who sought emergency treatment in the Faculty of Dentistry of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul were included, all of them with acute apical abscess diagnosis. These patients were divided into two groups: acetaminophen group —prescription of acetaminophen (1000 mg) and acetaminophen–codeine group—prescription of acetaminophen (1000 mg) + codeine (30 mg), both w...

CONCLUSIONS: In selected cases, MISS surgeries may be considered as a valid alternative to open surgery. Although the efficacy of PPSF has been well documented in trauma or degenerative spine surgery, there is not sufficient literature about MISS techniques in spinal metastasis and further studies are needed to elucidate the most appropriate patient in which this approach could represent the gold standard of treatment.

Authors: Knabl L, Mango M, Stögermüller B, Kirchmair L, Posch W, Lass-Flörl C, Fuchs S Abstract The Gram negative pathogen Capnocytophaga canimorsus is a frequent commensal in the oral cavity of cats and dogs. Although the bacterium is generally considered harmless, infections in humans can occur displaying a broad spectrum of clinical syndromes. This makes a clinical diagnosis difficult. The patient in the present case was 67 years old and presented to the emergency room (ER) with pain in the upper right abdomen and clinical signs of a feverish infection. The only noticeable record in the patient&ac...
