Authors: Rahimzadeh S, Rahbarghazi R, Aslani S, Rajabi H, Latifi Z, Farshdousti Hagh M, Nourazarian A, Nozad Charoudeh H, Nouri M, Abhari A Abstract Introduction: Nowadays, mesenchymal stem cells are touted as suitable cell supply for the restoration of injured bone tissue. The existence of osteogenic differentiation makes these cells capable of replenishing damaged cells in the least possible time. It has been shown that epigenetic modifications, especially DNA methylation, contribute to the regulation of various transcription factors during phenotype acquisition. Hence, we concentrated on the correlation between ...

ConclusionsComplete miscarriage after expectant management is significantly more likely in embryonic miscarriage than in anembryonic miscarriage. Gestational age, crown-rump-length, and gestational sac diameter are independent predictors of success of expectant management. Predictors of treatment success may help counselling women with early miscarriage.
CONCLUSIONS: 1. Our follow-up data from a mean of 11 years show that the use of the anatomical AURA II stem results in a considerable reduction in hip pain and produces good and lasting clinical outcomes. 2. With good surgical technique and in the absence of complications, the risk of aseptic loosening is minimal. PMID: 32986003 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsIn Bangladesh piriformis syndrome is more common in female, especially among housewives. A fall often precedes the condition. Piriformis syndrome should be considered as possible diagnosis when sciatica occurs without a clear spine pathology.
Recently several authors have reported that diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) might provide a new understanding of sciatica. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical feasibility of DTI for the evaluation of lumbar spinal nerve of patients with sciatica associated with lumbar degenerative disorders. Thirty-four patients (25men, mean age63. 3 years) with degenerated lumbar disease, 14 patients with lumbar spinal stenosis with foraminal stenosis, 12 with lumbar spinal stenosis without foraminal stenosis, five with lumbar disc herniation, two with discogenic low back pain, and one with spondylolysis who underwent...
