Elbow Common Flexor Tendon Repair Technique

Publication date: Available online 23 October 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Rami George Alrabaa, Julian Sonnenfeld, David Trofa, Christopher AhmadAbstractMedial epicondylitis, also known as “golfer's elbow,” is a common orthopaedic condition that typically results from overuse of the flexor pronator mass. Repetitive eccentric loading of the muscles responsible for wrist flexion and forearm pronation leads to microtrauma and subsequent degeneration of the flexor pronator tendon. Patients with medial epicondylitis typically present in the fourth to sixth decade of life and have an insidious onset of medial elbow pain. Occasionally, medial epicondylitis may result from an acute traumatic event, such as an acute avulsion of the common flexor tendon. Patients should be examined for concomitant elbow pathologies, including ulnar neuritis and ulnar collateral ligament injury. T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging can show increased signal intensity in the common flexor tendon or a complete rupture. Nonsurgical management is the mainstay of treatment; however, surgical treatment may be indicated in elite athletes and patients with persistent symptoms after conservative treatment. This technique article with accompanying video describes open debridement and repair of the flexor pronator tendon, with an emphasis on restoration of the anatomic footprint and compression across the repair site to promote biological healing.

Adults who experience pain are more likely to use cannabis without a prescription and have cannabis use disorder than those without pain, according to astudy published yesterday inAJP in Advance.“These results suggest that, among adults with pain, frequent nonmedical cannabis use and cannabis use disorder are growing problems,” wrote Deborah S. Hasin, Ph.D., of the New York State Psychiatric Institute and colleagues. “[T]he need remains for other interventions to manage pain that do n ot incur risk of another substance use disorder (i.e., cannabis use disorder) as an adverse treatment outcome.”Hasin...

CONCLUSIONS: The only sex difference was in SCM thickness. However, smaller SCMs in women did not result in less SCM SWE stiffness. We provided normative values for US-based imaging of the cervical-flexor and -extensor muscles in young and athletic men and women. PMID: 31967864 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Kolbe L, Eberhardt T, Leinberger B, Hinterberger T Abstract BACKGROUND: Biofeedback-treatment for primary headache is highly recommended. Its expenses are mostly not or not completely covered by health funds, hindering the implementation in the care system. This randomized controlled study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of a biofeedback-treatment for primary headache in the outpatient care system all over Germany. METHODS: The participants were divided into a direct treatment-group (n=41) and a waiting control-group (n=29). The treatment was carried out for 8-11 sessions with vasoconstriction-/vasodi...

CONCLUSION: Spontaneous resolution of lumbar ganglion is very rare and only 26 cases, including ours, were reported in literature. Different degrees of biomechanical impairment seem to play a fundamental role in the pathogenesis. Related symptoms are essentially represented by low back and/or radicular pain, without significant neurological disorders. Anti-inflammatory drugs, light unloading exercises and brace could be recommended to administrated pain and decrease facet loads. Mean time for clinical improvement was 7 mo, while MRI disappearance occurred in an average time of 11 mo. Therefore, surgery should be applied wh...

Authors: Chen B, Kanaan C, Jaiyesimi I, Ezekwudo D, Swor R Abstract OBJECTIVES: Although life-threatening emergencies for cancer patients are relatively rare, cancer patients often seek care in the emergency department. The use of emergency medical service (EMS) by these patients is not well studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the characteristics of cancer patients who present to the emergency department (ED) for care, and; compare characteristics of patients transported by EMS versus those transported by private vehicle. METHODS: Our retrospective cohort study was conducted in an EMS system with ...
