Publication date: Available online 14 February 2020Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Graeme P. WhyteAbstractMassive and retracted tears of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons of the rotator cuff are associated with great pain and disability and may be considered “non-repairable,” depending on the extent of injury and the experience of the treating clinician. The technique of anatomic vector repair of the rotator cuff is a surgical treatment method that enables the surgeon to accurately characterize the injury pattern and successfully repair many of these debilitating injuries anatomically in a st...

ConclusionThe specificity of analgesic treatments in adults with ID is a totally unexplored domain. In the absence of clinical guidelines, pharmacological facts ‐ such as inter‐individual variability in drug response, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions, frequent comorbidities and ease of administration ‐ must be systematically integrated, when prescribing in the population of adults with ID.

Authors: Chen Y, Jiang W, Yong H, He M, Yang Y, Deng Z, Li Y Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common cause of disability in worldwide population, which is characterized by cartilage breakdown, synovial fibrosis, osteophyte formation and pain. Synovial inflammation is usually found in both early and late stages in most of the OA patients. Macrophages, the major component of the mononuclear phagocyte system, play a critical role in OA pathogenesis through the induction of inflammatory mediators, growth factors and proteinases. So, drugs that can target macrophages and macrophage-associated inflammatory pathwa...

Authors: Rajasekaran S, Soundararajan DCR, Shetty AP, Kanna RM Abstract Study Design: Prospective observational study. Purpose: To assess the safety, efficacy, and benefits of computed tomography (CT)-guided C1 fracture fixation. Overview of Literature: The surgical management of unstable C1 injuries by occipitocervical and atlantoaxial (AA) fusion compromises motion and function. Monosegmental C1 osteosynthesis negates these drawbacks and provides excellent functional outcomes. Methods: The patients were positioned in a prone position, and cranial traction was applied using Mayfield tongs to restore th...
