Surgical management of pectoralis major tears of the sternal origin because of seat belt trauma: a report of 2 cases - Orvets ND, Bhale R, Budge MD.
CASES: Two patients presented with medial chest pain and deformity after high-speed motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) in which they were restrained drivers. Physical examination revealed retraction of the pectoralis major from the sternum on resisted adductio...
We describe diagnostic and therapeutic anesthesia blocks and ablative procedures targeting the zygomaticofacial and zygomaticotemporal nerves.
BACKGROUND: Increasing numbers of torture-survivors are presenting to UK healthcare services with persistent pain. However, there is a paucity of evidence surrounding the management of persistent pain among torture-survivors and their experience of healthc...

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of chronic pain in pediatrics is substantial and is estimated to be around 20%. Orchialgia remains difficult and problematic to treat. Mental health diagnoses such as anxiety and depression are also significantly associated with chronic pain. Following consideration and implementation of steps for all these concerns, a diagnostic block and microsurgical denervation led to successful resolution of chronic testicular pain in a pediatric patient.PMID:34291422 | DOI:10.1007/s12630-021-02072-5
ConclusionOur technique is minimally invasive, safe, simple to perform, yielding excellent anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments.

Knowledge about predictors of nonrecovery from traffic injuries may help to improve patient care.OBJECTIVE: To develop a prediction model for self-reported overall nonrecovery from traffic injuries six months post-collision in adults with incident traffic injuries including post-traumatic headache (PTH).DESIGN: Inception cohort studies of adults with incident traffic injuries (including PTH) injured in traffic collisions between November 1997 an...
In conclusion, CRPS is a multifactorial condition that still requires further studying to better understand its pathogenesis, epidemiology, genetic involvement, psychological implications, and treatment options. Future studies are warranted to better understand this syndrome. This will provide an opportunity for better prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of CRPS.PMID:34165690 | DOI:10.1007/s40122-021-00279-4
Conclusions: The finding that longer TST shows larger symptom reductions is promising for PTSD patients who might not seek help for years following trauma. Higher baseline pain severity robustly predicted attenuated and slower response to all treatment conditions, suggesting a common neuropathologic substrate. Finally, in the current study, alcohol use did not impede the effectiveness of pharmacotherapy for PTSD.Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT01524133.PMID:34133087 | DOI:10.4088/JCP.20m13752
