Conclusion: In most cases, chronic injuries are far more common than acute tears. Because of the nonspecific and slowly progressive symptoms, patients are often misdiagnosed with radiculopathy, osteoarthritis, or trochanteric bursitis. Patients typically present to the clinic with an insidious onset of dull pain over the lateral hip. This pain is often worse when lying on the affected side. Certain gluteal-focused movements, such as climbing stairs, may exacerbate the pain. To our knowledge, our report is only the third case of acute traumatic tear of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus reported in the literature. P...

Authors: Gudin J, Nalamachu S Abstract Interest in and use of topical analgesics has been increasing, presumably due to their potential utility for relief of acute and chronic pain. Topically applied agents with analgesic properties can target peripheral nociceptive pathways while minimizing absorption into the plasma that leads to potential systemic adverse effects.Clinical trials have found 5% lidocaine patches to be effective and well tolerated for the treatment of post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) with a minimal risk of toxicity or drug-drug interactions. With this patch formulation, the penetration of lidocaine in...

Conclusion: Patient's consciousness during TKA operations is an important factor that interferes with the postoperative kinesiophobia development, which may play a pivotal role affecting the early mobility and functional outcomes. PMID: 31908181 [PubMed - in process]

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-3400742Knee osteotomies show efficacy in slowing knee osteoarthritis progression and delaying the need for total knee arthroplasty in younger patients. Despite evolutions in indications, techniques, and hardware that have improved outcomes, longitudinal trends demonstrate a decline in high tibial osteotomy (HTO) and distal femoral osteotomy (DFO) use. Unfortunately, knowledge of the current usage and complications associated with HTO and DFO is limited. The purpose of this study was to compare the preoperative demographics and early complication rates of HTO and DFO. We analyzed the HTOs and...
