#1
REVIEW
J Weber, T Buchhorn
Although the incidence of midportion Achilles tendinopathy is under 1% in the general population, it is quite a common disease in runners that is characterized by the symptom triad of pain, swelling and impaired physical performance. Pain and swelling are located in the area 2 to 7 cm proximal the tendon insertion onto the calcaneus.Diagnosis is made by adequate clinical symptoms and corresponding findings in sonography and/or magnetic resonance imaging scans. Histopathologically, mostly degenerative changes in the tendon structure are found, sometimes accompanied by intra- and paratendinous inflammation...

INTRODUCTION: Osteonecrosis is an ischemic pathologic process associated with a number of conditions affecting a range of age groups. The problem faced in the management of osteonecrosis is whether conservative treatment is a viable and effective option for patients. In this systematic review, we investigated the efficacy of various nonoperative treatment modalities for hip and knee osteonecrosis, including pharmacological management and biophysical modalities. METHODS: We identified 16 studies based on electronic searches through the PubMed, Embase, CINAHL Plus, and Cochrane databases from January 2001 to November 2015...

Developing multifunctional phototheranostics with nanoplatforms offers promising potential for effective eradication of malignant solid tumors. In this study, we develop a multifunctional phototheranostic by combining photothermal therapy (PTT) and photoacoustic therapy (PAT) based on a tumor-targeting nanoagent (DBCO-ZnPc-LP). The nanoagent DBCO-ZnPc-LP was facilely prepared by self-assembling of a single lipophilic near-infrared (NIR) dye zinc(II)-phthalocyanine (ZnPc) with a lipid-poly(ethylene glycol) (LP) and following modified further with dibenzyl cyclootyne (DBCO) for introducing the two-step chemical tumor-targeting strategy based on metabolic glycoengineering and click chemistry...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) seems to be an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis (PF) and is assumed to be safe. No systematic reviews have been published that specifically studied the complications and side effects of ESWT in treating PF. Aim of this systematic review is therefore to evaluate the complications and side effects of ESWT in order to determine whether ESWT is a safe treatment for PF. METHODS: For this systematic review the databases PubMed, MEDLINE, Cochrane and Embase were used to search for relevant literature between 1 January 2005 and 1 January 2017...

Managing patients with erectile dysfunction (ED) who failed to respond to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5is) is a challenging task. Recently, low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) was reported to improve ED by enhancing perfusion of the penis. The current study was performed to evaluate whether combined treatment with LI-ESWT and PDE5is can restore erectile function in patients who failed to respond to PDE5is alone. This was an open-label single-arm prospective study. ED patients with an erection hardness score (EHS) ≦2 under a maximal dosage of PDE5is were enrolled...

Nanocomposites fabricated using the toughest caged inorganic fullerene WS2 (IF-WS2) nanoparticles could offer ultimate protection via absorbing shockwaves; however, if the IF-WS2 nanomaterials really work, how they behave and what they experience within the nanocomposites at the right moment of impact have never been investigated effectively, due to the limitations of existing investigation techniques that are unable to elucidate the true characteristics of high-speed impacts in composites. We first fabricated Al matrix model nanocomposites and then unlocked the exact roles of IF-WS2 in it at the exact moment of impact, at a time resolution that has never been attempted before, using two in situ techniques...
