-Pimenta CA Abstract OBJECTIVES: to verify the effects of hierarchization and in vivo exposure for fear of pain, avoidance of movement, and anxiety in chronic low back pain. METHODS: quasi-experimental study. The 27 patients who participated graded the damage associated with the movements in each of the 40 activities of daily living depicted in pictures using a scale from 0 to 100. The patients chose five out of all the activities that received a score higher than 50 to carry out the exposure. The intensities of fear and anxiety were measured before and after each exposure session. RESULTS: the frequenci...

In this study, a novel wearable device embedding a Fiber Bragg Grating sensor for the detection of lumbar flexion-extensions (F/E) in seated subjects is proposed. At first, the manufacturing process of the sensing element was shown together with its mechanical characterization, that shows linear response to strain with a high correlation coefficient (R2 > 0.99) and a sensitivity value (Sε) of 0.20 nm∙mε−1. Then, the capability of the wearable device in measuring F/E in the sagittal body plane was experimentally assessed on a small population of volunteers, using a Motion Capture s...

In this study, we utilized a network medicine approach to uncover potential molecular mediators of IDD. Our systematic analyses of IDD associated with 284 genes included functional annotation clustering, interaction networks, network cluster analysis and Transcription factors (TFs)-target gene network analysis. The functional enrichment and protein–protein interaction network analysis highlighted the role of inflammatory genes and cytokine/chemokine signaling in IDD. Moreover, sub-network analysis identified significant clusters possessing organized networks of 24 cytokine and chemokine genes, which may be consid...

In conclusion, the results of the present study revealed that circ‑TIMP2 promoted TNF‑α‑ and IL‑1β‑induced NP cell imbalance between ECM anabolism and catabolism via miR‑185‑5p‑MMP2 signaling. These findings provide a potential therapeutic option for the treatment of IDD. PMID: 32626912 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionSurgeons performing a TKR should take these factors into consideration prior to deciding whether a patient is suitable for a TKR. Secondarily, a detailed explanation of these factors should form part of the process of informed consent to achieve better patient satisfaction following TKR. There is a great need for a unified approach to assessing satisfaction following a TKR and also the time at which satisfaction is assessed.
