Approach to Isolated Trapezoid Fractures.
Conclusion: Isolated fractures of the trapezoid require a high index of suspicion as they are rare, and localizing signs and symptoms are typically vague and may mimic those of scaphoid fractures. When athletes present with dorsal wrist pain, swelling, and snuffbox tenderness in the setting of negative plain x-rays, the most likely mechanisms of injury are associated with athletic activity. Treatment depends on the degree of displacement and other associated injuries and ranges from activity modification or immobilization to open reduction with internal fixation. PMID: 31528141 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: To avoid running-related injuries, runners should be careful when increasing weekly mileage. Moreover, runners with previous exercise experience may need to approach running more cautiously. Setting goals and pursuing longer-distance running events may be motivating, but at the same time, can increase the risk of running-related injuries.

Authors: Sakamoto T, Ishio Y, Ishida Y, Mogi K, Kikusui T Abstract Deprivation of maternal care has been associated with higher pain sensitivity in offspring. In the present study, we hypothesized that the maternal licking/grooming behavior was an important factor for the development of the pain regulatory system. To test this hypothesis, we used male F2 offspring of early-weaned (EW) F1 mother mice that exhibit lower frequency of licking/grooming behavior. The formalin test revealed that F2 offspring of EW F1 dams showed significantly higher pain behavior than F2 offspring of normally-weaned (NW) F1 dams. We found...
