Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders and Associated Factors Among Bankers in Ethiopia, 2018.

Conclusion: The prevalence of WMSDs among bankers was high. The significant associated factors responsible for the occurrence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders include longer working experience, being above 30 years old, low educational status, physical exercise, job stress, poor posture, absence of breaks during working hours, and absence of ergonomic training.

Discussion Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are common with an estimated 50% of the US population being infected by age 30, and with latent infection harboring in the trigeminal nerve in 100% of people by age 60 years. HSV infections can cause a vesicular or pustular skin rash that is painful, burning or pruritic and also flu-like symptoms with fever, chills, headache, and fatigue. HSV can also be asymptomatic. To laymen, herpes simplex viruses cause “cold sores,” but to health care personnel, herpes causes many systemic infections including eczema herpeticum, folliculitis, herpes gladiatorum, whitlow, e...

AbstractOsteoarthritis is a significant cause of chronic pain in the elderly population with hip osteoarthritis as one of the main causes of functional disability and joint pain in adults older than 55 years. Recently, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections have been introduced for treatment of osteoarthritis. The aim of this systematic review is to assess its effectiveness in the management of hip osteoarthritis. We performed a search of the literature for published prospective studies that assessed the effectiveness of PRP injections in the treatment of hip osteoarthritis, with a minimum follow-up of 3 months. Primary out...

CONCLUSION: In this US real-world cohort, most patients had multidomain disease presentations, which was associated with worse disease activity, QOL, and work productivity measures. This study highlights the heterogeneity of PsA and the importance of assessing all PsA domains for optimizing disease management. PMID: 33004532 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The proposed scoring system helps view LDS as a heterogenous condition and assists in tailoring treatment for individual patients. For a select subgroup of patients with LDS, minimally invasive decompression (unilateral laminotomy and bilateral decompression using a minimally invasive surgery tubular retractor system) without fusion is adequate. Level of Evidence: Level III.

Cauda equina syndrome (CES) is a serious neurologic condition in which neurological dysfunction affects the lumbar and sacral nerve roots within the vertebral canal. Recognition of CES is not only important to Neurosurgeons and  Spine surgeons, but also to primary care practitioners, emergency room physicians, physiotherapists and allied health care professionals involved in management of back pain. It is an important diagnosis from a clinical and medico-legal perspective. Early surgical decompression is advocated by most authors to best aid patient’s recovery and reduces long term disability.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewLow back pain with radicular symptoms is a common cause of disability in the adult population in the USA. Lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection (TFESI) is one of the most frequently used intervention for lumbar radiculitis. The purpose of this review is to evaluate complications associated with lumbar TFESI.Recent FindingsBased on the literature review, the reported rate of minor complications was between 2.4 and 9.6%. The major complications including spinal abscess, spinal cord infarct, and epidural hematoma were documented as case reports. Some patients with spinal cord infarct had pe...
