Relationship between needle depth for lumbar transforaminal epidural injection and patients' height and weight using magnetic resonance imaging
CONCLUSIONS: The maximal BMI that derived from the formulated equation is listed on the table, which can help in preparations for morbid obesity. If a patient has bigger BMI than the one in the table, the clinician should prepare longer needle than the usual spinal needle.PMID:35768990 | DOI:10.3344/kjp.2022.35.3.345 (Source: Pain Physician)

A minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure after an interspinous spacer device implantation: an uncommon order of treatment with a successful outcome
Orthop Rev (Pavia). 2022 Jun 27;14(4):35844. doi: 10.52965/001c.35844. eCollection 2022.ABSTRACTA patient with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) was referred to our clinic due to refractory low back pain, radicular pain, and neurogenic claudication despite conservative treatment with medical management. Imaging of the lumbar spine revealed spinal canal and foraminal stenosis. Multiple epidural steroid injections (ESI) were performed which did not resolve her condition. We offered her an Implantation of an Interspinous Spacer Device (ISD) since her primary symptoms were predominantly characteristic of radicular pain. Her radicul...

Physician Perspectives on Acupuncture Use in the Pediatric Emergency Department
CONCLUSIONS: Participants overall had positive experiences with ED acupuncture. Although multilevel barriers to use of acupuncture were noted, these may be mitigated by several strategies suggested by participants. Future research is needed to further explore the potential impact of these strategies, as well as examine clinical outcomes of acupuncture implementation in the pediatric ED setting.PMID:35766890 | DOI:10.1097/PEC.0000000000002787 (Source: Pain Physician)

A cross-sectional investigation and analysis of early treatment of partial-thickness burn wounds by professional burn medical staff in China
Conclusions: The conventional treatment measures of partial-thickness burn blisters and reasons for preserving blister skin by professional burn medical staff in China are relatively consistent, but there are great differences in the selection of reasons for removing blister skin, the conventional selection and optimal solution recommendation of topical drugs or dressings for partial-thickness burn wounds in the early stage. Therefore, it is urgent to establish a clinical treatment standard for partial-thickness burn wounds.PMID:35764579 | DOI:10.3760/cma.j.cn501225-20220317-00065 (Source: Pain Physician)

COVID-19 in Fabry disease: a reference center prospective study
