Associations Between Patient-Reported Outcome Measures of Physical and Psychological Functioning and Willingness to Share Social Media Data for Research Among Adolescents With a Chronic Rheumatic Disease: Cross-Sectional Survey
CONCLUSIONS: High percentages of youth with rheumatic diseases used and were willing to share their social media data for research. Sharers reported worse symptoms and functioning compared to those of nonsharers. Social media may offer a potent information source and engagement pathway for youth with rheumatic diseases, but differences between sharing and nonsharing youth merit consideration when designing studies and evaluating social media-derived findings.PMID:38059571 | DOI:10.2196/46555 (Source: Pain Physician)

Characterizing Opioid Prescribing Trends of Medical Oncologists From 2013 to 2019: Analysis From the Centers for Medicare & amp; Medicaid Services Medicare Part D Prescribers Database
CONCLUSION: Opioid prescriptions by medical oncologists decreased significantly from 2013 to 2019, but this decrease was most substantial from 2017 to 2019. These results may imply that the 2016 CDC guidelines influenced medical oncologists, particularly more junior physicians in urban settings, to manage chronic cancer pain with alternative therapies.PMID:38061003 | DOI:10.1200/OP.23.00285 (Source: Pain Physician)

Alcohol use disorder in the perioperative period: a summary and recommendations for anesthesiologists and pain physicians
Reg Anesth Pain Med. 2023 Nov 30:rapm-2023-104354. doi: 10.1136/rapm-2023-104354. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTExcessive alcohol consumption and alcohol use disorder (AUD) increase the risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality. Aspiration, malnutrition, coagulopathies, seizures, and hemodynamic alterations are only a few of the major concerns related to acute alcohol intoxication and AUD. There are also numerous physiological effects, changes in medication metabolism and pharmacology, and adverse events related to chronic alcohol consumption. These are all important considerations for the anesthesiologist in the perio...

Intestinal stent implantation using a water injection device with carbon dioxide and transparent cap: A case report
We reported a technique for endoscopic intestinal stent placement. A 60-year-old female patient was admitted for abdominal pain and poor bowel movement for 10 days. Computed tomography at a local hospital suggested local stenosis.DIAGNOSES: A transparent cap was placed in front of a gastroscope and was used to cross part of the stenotic segment, with water being injected to fill the intestinal cavity continuously. An angiographic catheter was sent along the yellow zebra guidewire passing through the stenotic segment. After exchanging for a colonoscope, a 12-cm intestinal stent was placed along the guidewire.INTERVENTIONS: ...

Non-Operative Rehabilitation Principles for Use in Individuals with Acetabular Dysplasia: A North American Based Delphi Study
CONCLUSION: This North American based Delphi study presents expert-based consensus on non-operative rehabilitation principles for use in individuals with AD. Establishing guidelines for non-operative management in this population will help reduce practice variation and is the first step in stratifying individuals who would benefit from non-operative management. Future research should focus on patient-reported outcomes and rate of subsequent surgical intervention to determine the success of the guidelines reported in this study.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V.PMID:38050551 | PMC:PMC10693488 | DOI:10.26603/001c.89265 (Source: Pain Physician)

The Physician Anesthesia Workforce in Canada From 1996 to 2018: A Longitudinal Analysis of Health Administrative Data
CONCLUSIONS: This study provides foundational information regarding anesthesia workforce capacity over a 22-year period, including insights into demographics, locations of practice, and clinical volumes. The results do not quantify the gap between service capacity and need; however, they support the need for a national workforce strategy to achieve equitable access to sustainable anesthesia services in Canada, particularly for rural communities.PMID:38051290 | DOI:10.1213/ANE.0000000000006650 (Source: Pain Physician)

The significance of neutrophil/lympocyte ratio and platelet/lymphocyte ratio in predicting diabetic polyneuropathy and neuropathic pain severity as inflammatory factors
CONCLUSION: <p>Diabetic neuropathy is one of the common complications of diabetes, affecting about half of patients. Our study shows that NLR, PLO, MPV values can be used as parameters to help us make an easy and fast diagnosis in diabetic polyneuropathy. However, their reliability in the diagnosis of diabetic polyneuropathy should be evaluated with studies to be conducted with larger patient and control groups.</p>.PMID:38051687 | DOI:10.18071/isz.76.0408 (Source: Pain Physician)

Pediatric Sport-related Concussion: Recommendations From the Amsterdam Consensus Statement 2023
Pediatrics. 2023 Dec 4:e2023063489. doi: 10.1542/peds.2023-063489. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe 6th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport, Amsterdam 2022, addressed sport-related concussion (SRC) in adults, adolescents, and children. We highlight the updated evidence-base and recommendations regarding SRC in children (5-12 years) and adolescents (13-18 years). Prevention strategies demonstrate lower SRC rates with mouthguard use, policy disallowing bodychecking in ice hockey, and neuromuscular training in adolescent rugby. The Sport Concussion Assessment Tools (SCAT) demonstrate robustness with the...
