Ibuprofen side effects: Signs to spot when you go to the toilet - 'contact your doctor'
WHETHER it's general aches and pains, stomach problems or just feeling under the weather, ibuprofen is taken daily by millions of people worldwide. Ibuprofen also treats inflammation such as strains and sprains, and pain from arthritis. Most side effects are minimal or non-existent. However, research has found that spotting a serious sign when you go to the toilet should mean that you stop taking the painkiller.
While scaphoid excision combined with Four Corner Arthrodesis (FCA) or ProximalRow Carpectomy (PRC) are commonly-used salvage procedures to treat type two and three Scapholunate Advanced Collapse (SLAC) and Scaphoid Nonunion (SNAC)-induced degenerative arthritis, controversy persists over which treatment provides superior outcomes. We searched for articles comparing range of motion, grip strength, complications requiring reoperation, conversion to wrist arthrodesis, pain, and disability of shoulder and arm scores between FCA and PRC-treated patients.
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients with post-polio residual paralysis (PPRP) is challenging. Despite relief in pain after THA, pre-existing soft-tissue contractures may not only cause difficulty in walking, but also poses risk of dislocation, accelerated poly wear and early loosening.
ConclusionStudies show clear beneficial effects of exercise in PsA on disease activity, on well-being, and on comorbidities, and they seem to outweigh the risk of enthesitis induced by mechanical stress. Further investigations are necessary to confirm these results and to precise the modalities of exercise.Key Points• Psoriatic arthritis patients have a sedentary lifestyle• Physical activity has beneficial effects on disease activity, well-being and reduced some cardiovascular risk factor in psoriatic arthritis• Risk of enthesitis and flares is low with exercise in psoriatic arthritis
ConclusionGNB is a new promising local therapy for RA to control pain, improve function, and alleviate inflammation of the knee joint. Although it has a relatively short-term effect, yet it has outperformed the steroid effect.Key Points•Knee monoarthritis treatment in rheumatoid arthritis is always challenging•GNB has been approved for the treatment of pain in knee osteoarthritis•GNB in this study was able to control active knee arthritis and this effect persisted longer thane intra-articular steroid injection
ConclusionOur novel findings support a role of sEH in OA pain and suggest that inhibition of sEH and protection of endogenous EETs from catabolism represents a potential new therapeutic target for OA pain.
ConclusionWe have identified the post-zygotic p.Ser171Phe NLRC4 variant as a plausible cause of the disease in the enrolled patient. Functional and structural studies clearly support for the first time itsgain-of-function behavior consistent with previously reported NLRC4 pathogenic variants. These novel evidences should be considered in the diagnostic workup of patients with uncharacterized AID starting during adulthood.
ConclusionsInformatics solutions can generate timely, tailored office reports including PROs and predictive analytics. Patients successfully complete the pre-visit PRO assessments and clinicians and patients value the report to support shared surgical decisions.

AbstractBackgroundArthropathy is a collective term for any disease of the joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It is characterized by joint pain and functional impairment which results in a negative impact on quality of life. The aim of the study is to analyze inequalities in prevalence and incidence from arthropathy by gender and age groups and their changes in Lithuania in 2001-2019.MethodsThe data (aged 0+) on incidence and prevalence from arthropathy (ICD-10 codes M00-M25) in 2001-2019 was obtained from Hygiene Institute. Joinpoint regression analysis was used to assess trends of rates during 20...
