Neurogenic heterotopic ossification: a pictorial review.

This article highlights its key features to promote better awareness and recognition, by reviewing clinical findings and imaging of patients across various modalities including plain radiographs, ultrasound and computed tomography. The management of neurogenic heterotopic ossification is limited by late identification and consequently clinicians should always be aware of this potentially significant diagnosis. Recognition in the acute hospital setting before transfer to rehabilitation services may prevent further clinical sequelae including urinary tract infection and pressure ulcers.

Publication date: Available online 16 January 2020Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): María del Mar Contreras, Antonio Lama-Muñoz, Francisco Espínola, Manuel Moya, Inmaculada Romero, Eulogio CastroAbstractOlive leaves farmed from trees are valuable for the production of functional extracts. Nonetheless, olive leaves (containing thin branches), which are separated during olives cleaning in the mill, have received little attention. In this context, a multiple response optimization was performed to maximize at once the yield, total phenolic content, oleouropein and antioxidant activity obtained by ultrasound...

CONCLUSION: This study illustrates the wide variation of SBC locations across the mandible and leads us to conclude that the differential diagnosis of every asymptomatic, oval or round, well-defined, uniform radiolucent lesion on two dimensional radiographs of the mandible should include "a benign mandibular concavity", formerly known as Stafne's bone cyst.

This study aimed to reveal the correlation between the radiolucency area around the crown of impacted maxillary canines and dentigerous cysts using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). CBCT data were obtained from patients with impacted maxillary canines. Three points of five areas (tooth cusp area and buccal, lingual, mesial and distal areas of the crown) were randomly selected, and the distance between the point and the surrounding hard tissue was measured respectively. The mean values were recorded as the radiolucency area. These results were compared with the occurrence of dentigerous cysts during surgery. 58 patients...

Conclusion. This large systematic review of over 11,000 participants demonstrates that topical diclofenac is effective for acute pain, such as sprains and strains, with minimal AEs. The effectiveness of topical diclofenac was also demonstrated in chronic musculoskeletal pain, such as osteoarthritis, but with a higher NNT (worse) compared with acute pain. Again, the incidence of AEs was low. Formulation does play a part in effectiveness, and studies are needed to investigate this further. Studies of chronic pain outside of osteoarthritis would also be helpful. PMID: 31944135 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study was exempt from formal ethical or institutional registration. The data collection was completed in 2017. Following a video introduction, the trainees completed a questionnaire. For each of the CanMEDS domains, trainees of different tiers perceived them to be equally important. Indeed, the junior and senior cohorts of trainees perceived all domains to be equally important, as signified by the significant degree of score correlation. Age was a significant variable for achievement of competency in the roles of a Medical Expert (p = .01), a Communicator (p = .04), a Collaborator (p&thinsp...

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with SCI have a rehabilitation potential regardless of etiology. Complications are frequent in both groups and often prolong hospitalization. Complication patterns differ in the two groups, and specific prevention and optimal treatment will shorten and optimize the length of primary rehabilitation.

CONCLUSION: Secondary health conditions are common among persons with long-term spinal cord injury and the following secondary health conditions were independently associated with lower quality of life: musculoskeletal pain, pressure ulcers, problematic spasticity, and constipation. Minimizing the impact of secondary health conditions should be a priority in the long-term care of persons with spinal cord injury. PMID: 27834436 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Management of neglected thoracolumbar injuries is challenging. The delay in presentation should not prevent spine surgeon in proceeding with operative intervention as good results can be expected. PMID: 27559447 [PubMed]
