Current Clinical Concepts: Conservative Management of Achilles Tendinopathy.

Current Clinical Concepts: Conservative Management of Achilles Tendinopathy. J Athl Train. 2020 Apr 08;: Authors: Silbernagel KG, Hanlon S, Sprague A Abstract Achilles tendinopathy is a painful overuse injury that is extremely common in athletes, especially those who participate in running and jumping sports. In addition to pain, Achilles tendinopathy is accompanied by alterations in the tendon's structure and mechanical properties, altered lower extremity function, and fear of movement. Cumulatively, these impairments limit sport participation and performance. A thorough evaluation and comprehensive treatment plan, centered on progressive tendon loading, is required to ensure full recovery of tendon health and to minimize the risk of reinjury. In this review, we will provide an update on the evidence-based evaluation, outcome assessment, treatment, and return-to-sport planning for Achilles tendinopathy. Furthermore, we will provide the strength of evidence for these recommendations using the Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy system. PMID: 32267723 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionDuloxetine treatment in patients with RA in clinical remission appears to have comparable effectiveness on relieving remnant pain, improving activities of daily living and maintaining QOL. Duloxetine is not expected to have any effects on disease activity control.

Conclusion: Tracking of tele-consultations and access to patient information from the electronic medical records enabled a timely response in an ongoing lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The current experience provided valuable insights to the possibility of managing patient follow-up visits remotely in the future.

ConclusionOur study suggests possible benefit of URIM in terms of less blood transfusions with no difference in consolidation rates. Even though without significance, a tendency to less blood loss, less events of systemic complication and lower length of stay was observed with URIM. Despite its limitations, this study can be used to design future prospective ventures that quantify patient-reported outcomes and provide more clear evidence.

AbstractObjectivesTo compare the outcome of US-guided percutaneous irrigation of calcific tendinopathy (US-PICT) of the rotator cuff in patients with or without previous external shockwave therapy (ESWT).MethodsWe analyzed all patients treated with US-PICT from March 1, 2016, to October 1, 2019, with shoulder pain refractory to conservative management for rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy, diagnosed with ultrasound. Each patient was examined using the Constant –Murley Score (CMS) questionnaire (score 0–100) before and after treatment. We tested CMS differences using the Mann–WhitneyU (Wilcoxon rank-sum) ...

AbstractChronic constipation is one of the five most common symptoms seen by gastroenterologist. In the absence of alarm symptoms, a confident symptom-based diagnosis can often be made using the Rome criteria. Three different subtypes have been identified to date: normal transit constipation, defaecatory disorders and slow transit constipation. Differentiation between these subtypes can be made through functional testing using tests such as anorectal manometry with balloon expulsion and a radio-opaque marker test. In general, patients are initially advised to increase their fluid and fibre intake. When these general lifest...

Conclusions: Clinical features of patients with P-FP resembled those recently described in a subgroup of P-AIP presenting with jaundice. Long-term outcome of these patients is generally good, with or without invasive interventions. As some patients may develop exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and/or other immune-mediated diseases, ongoing clinical monitoring is recommended.

Abstract Despite the opioid epidemic, up to 86% of patients experience moderate to severe pain after major surgery. Although several factors influence the amount of pain patients experience postoperatively, studies have identified genetic variations that influence pain perception and response to pain medications. The purpose of this article is to examine evidence of the genetic differences that affect patients' responses to medications frequently used in postoperative pain management. Genes of interest associated with postoperative pain management include the opioid µ1 receptor (OPRM1), cytochrome P450 (CYP)...
