BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Neurological complications of spinal anesthesia are rare conditions. Headache caused by low pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid is one of the most frequent, which occurs after post-dural puncture. A comprehensive history and physical exam must be carried out before making the diagnosis of Post-Dural Puncture Headache (PDPH) and additional tests are necessary to exclude the possibility of developing serious neurological complications such as Dural Sinus Thrombosis (DST)...

Y L Tan, F C Yong
The condition of proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) locking in hyperextension may occur in the athetoid or spastic hand with moderate or severe swan-neck deformity at the 'opening' phase of prehension. The patient's complaints are of complete or incomplete locking that may require passive assistance to initiate PIPJ flexion. Surgical procedures to overcome this include rerouting the lateral band, stabilisation or reconstruction procedure for the volar instability of the PIPJ, etc. Volar stabilisation may be achieved by Flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) tenodesis procedures or criss-cross tendon graft for volar plate reconstruction...

Midurethral slings are used to correct urethral hypermobility in female stress urinary incontinence, defined as the complaint of involuntary urine leakage when the intra-abdominal pressure is increased. Structural and thermal features influence their mechanical properties, which may explain postoperative complications, e.g., erosion, urethral obstruction. We studied the effect of the mesh stiffness on urethral mobility at Valsalva maneuver, under impairment of the supporting structures (levator ani and/or ligaments), by using a numerical model...
