Multiple Glomus Tumors in the Left Foot of 41-year-old Woman. A Case Report.
We present a case of multiple glomus tumor in the foot of a 41-year-old woman. After several surgical consultations, she had been referred for further surgery including possible ampu-tation, which she declined. Simultaneous multiple excisions of the tumors resulted in complete symptomatic relief. This case confirms that glomus tumors should be considered in a patient with multiple lesions producing ex-cruciating pain.

New Perspectives in Joint Cartilage Treatment with Special Emphasis on New Types of Hydrogels: a Review.
Authors: Baranowski M, Czubak J Abstract Joints are a necessary anatomic and functional element of the organ of locomotion. Hyaline cartilage is a very important element of a joint in physiological terms. Joint cartilage is subjected to injuries associated with non-physiological loading and excessive abnormal mobility caused by ligament instability. These can lead to damage to the surface of the cartilage and the development of defects. Until now there has been no "golden standard" for treating injuries to joint cartilage. The goal of this treatment is to sustain knee function at a level that is tolerable...

They rank among the most frequent fractures in adults, with incidence increasing with age and the degree of bone loss (osteoporosis). Among all currently used methods of stabilization of proximal humeral fractures, the best outcomes are afforded by angularly-stable plate fixation and interlocking or reconstructive intramedullary nailing. Both methods produce comparable results enabling bone union and restoration of limb functionality. Nevertheless,...

CONCLUSIONS: 1. The conflict between the prosthesis and residual limb is the cause of skin disruption at different sites of the stump and can be successfully treated by prosthetic socket modification. 2. Efforts should be made to systematically identify any discrepancies between the stump and the soc-ket. 3. Correct adaptation of the prosthesis to the weight-bearing points of the stump will offer clinicians the possibility of quantification and visualization of this interaction using simple radiographic techniques.

Complications after Surgical Treatment of Spinal Metastases.
CONCLUSIONS: 1. The rate of complications in the present study was comparable to figures reported in the lite-rature. 2. Radiation therapy had a significant impact on the risk of wound healing complications. The most important risk factor is patients' overall health status, age, previous radiotherapy and steroid therapy, and the presence of neu-rological deficits. 3. Mechanical complications occur mainly in the junctional segments of the spine. 4. Operative treat-ment of wound healing complications produces good results."

Efficacy of Physiotherapy in Reducing Back Pain and Improve Joint Mobility in Older Women.
CONCLUSIONS: 1. The 6-week physical therapy programme desig-ned by us constitutes an effective therapy for pain relief in patients with degenerative changes of the spine. 2. The proposed combination of sonotherapy, elec-tro-therapy and classic massage procedures with general fitness exercises in low positions and au-to-genic training contributed significantly to im-provement in flexibility of the upper and lower part of the body and increasing the range of mo-tion in joints of the lower and upper extremities and the spine in women over 60 years of age. 3. The proposed set of procedures and exercises may be used in women ov...
