AbstractInsertable cardiac monitors (ICM) are subcutaneously implanted devices that monitor a patient ’s heart rate and rhythm (Rossano in Pediatrics 112(3):e228, 2003). The diagnostic accuracy and safety of the Confirm RxTM (Abbott, Minneapolis, MN) ICM in pediatric patients  is unknown. This is a single center, retrospective, IRB-approved review of patients ≤ 21 years implanted with Confirm RxTM ICMs from 2017 to 2020. Data collected included demographics, indications, presence of P-wave and R-wave amplitude at implantation and follow-up, number/appropriateness of transmissions pre and post implementat...

AbstractPurposeThe management of knee pain secondary to meniscal tears with osteoarthritis is limited by the poor inherent healing potential of the meniscus. Previous studies have reported on the benefit of autologous micro-fragmented fat as a therapeutic for various knee pathologies. The goal of this prospective pilot study was to determine the safety and potential treatment effect of micro-fragmented adipose tissue injection for patients with knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis and meniscal tears who have failed conservative management.MethodsTwenty subjects with knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis with associated me...

Septic arthritis is a dangerous medical condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. However, the differential diagnosis can be broad with conditions that mimic this disease and require different evaluation and treatment. This narrative review presents the emergency medicine evaluation and management, as well as important medical conditions that may mimic this disease. Septic arthritis commonly presents with monoarticular joint pain with erythema, warmth, swelling, and pain on palpation and movement. Fever is present in many patients, though most are low grade. Blood testing and imaging may assist with th...
