Outcomes of balloon kyphoplasty for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture in rheumatoid arthritis: A case –control study

Conclusions: The use of KP to treat OVCF in RA group exhibited similar outcomes to non-RA group in terms of pain reduction, vertebral height restoration, and kyphosis correction. However, RA group had significantly higher rate of complications involving adjacent segment fracture and recollapse. Therefore, careful followup after KP in patients with RA is required to monitor for high complication rate.

Authors: Tang T, Zhang Y, Luo C, Liu M, Xu L, Tang X Abstract Vitamin D has an important immunomodulatory effect, but no trial has examined the effect of boosting serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) in individuals with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The aim of the present study was to assess whether vitamin D supplementation reduced disease activity and adjusted/maintained bone mass in patients with active JIA. A 24-week randomized trial was undertaken at Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University. Treatment-naive patients with JIA were randomly assigned (1:1) to one of two groups: Standard t...

Authors: Yang H, Wang Y, Gao J, Wang P, Jiang X, Tian D, Hu H Abstract A 67-year-old male patient had a history of repeated urinary tract infections for numerous years. X-ray examination revealed a large calcific density in the pelvic cavity, with a diameter of 10.4 cm and a CT value of ~792.9 HU. On MRI of the pelvis, the lesion displayed with extremely low signals. The inside of the stone had a concentric ring shape with a slightly higher signal and the patient was diagnosed with a large left seminal vesicle calculus. Laparoscopic surgery was selected to treat the stone. The patient recovered rapidly and the symp...

Conclusions: Current management of osteoporosis in PLHIV follows general osteoporosis guidelines; however, the increased fracture risk is not fully explained by lower BMD, and thus, antiosteoporosis intervention may be beneficial at a higher BMD in PLHIV.

Oral mucositis is among the most common tissue toxicities associated with both cytotoxic cancer regimens and head and neck radiotherapy. Current management of oral mucositis might comprise growth factors and cytokines, anti-inflammatory agents, anesthetics, analgesics, antimicrobial and coating agents, cryotherapy and mucosal protectants. Despite its long history and its impact on patients, there are currently no effective options for the prevention or treatment of mucositis. In recent years, more attention has been focused on the role of natural drugs. Verbascoside belongs to the phenylpropanoid glycosides family. Several...

ConclusionResults suggest that looming pedestrians, while present for shorter duration, impose a greater risk of collision. Results further suggest a possible lateralization of attention and maintenance of personal space during collision avoidance. Collectively, present findings will help better understand how visual information is used for obstacle negotiation in a community environment and will serve as a basis for comparison to understand community walking challenges experienced by older adults and individuals with a physical disability.

ConclusionThe application of additional tactile cues using low thickness placed under the toes could contribute to change postural control and may have therapeutic benefits in the management of patients with chronic pain syndromes. This brings new perspectives also in the management of athletes to prevent injury risk and optimize performance.
