Background: The number of lumbar spine surgeries has been increasing during the last 20 years, which also leads to an increase in hospital costs and complications related to surgery. Therefore, there is a greater concern about the costs and safety of the techniques and implants used. Methods: Patients (aged from 18 to 50 years) presenting with lumbago /sciatica (ICD-10-CM M54.3, M54.4) due to lumbar disc herniation lasting more than 12 weeks, were included. Patients with disc herniation larger than size-2 or size-3 according to the MSU Classification were eligible for participation...

RATIONALE: Pregnancy and lactation-associated osteoporosis (PLO) is very rare, but it can cause severe vertebral compression fractures with disabling back pain. Although it is a rare, PLO must be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis in patients presenting with low back pain during or after pregnancy. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 23-year-old woman who suffered from lumbago and fractures in the vertebral column 1 month after delivery. DIAGNOSIS: Pregnancy and lactation-associated osteoporosis...

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) is the most common pathogeny of lumbago. It is the pathological basis for a series of spinal degenerative diseases. For a long time, the diagnosis and treatment of lumbago have rendered difficult, since the pathogeny has not been identified. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the protective effect of Sparstolonin B in preventing lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration, and explored its potential mechanism in rats. Firstly, Sparstolonin B effectively reduced the histological score of disc degeneration and increased endplate porosity of L2 superior endplates in a lumbar IVDD rat model...

Introduction: Radiofrequency-targeted vertebral augmentation (RF-TVA) is a recognized treatment for painful compression fractures. RF-TVA in a patient with multiple compression fractures due to type I osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) has not been previously reported. Case Presentation: A 54-year-old patient with type I OI is presented with a segmental thoracic hyperkyphosis and 7 recent vertebral compression fractures. Because of persistent severe thoracolumbar back pain despite conservative therapy, RF-TVA was indicated...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical effect of acupuncture stimulation of "Yaotong"-point (one acupoint of balance acupuncture therapy) and Ashi-points combined with patients' lumbar movement in the treatment of acute lumbar sprain. METHODS: Forty-six acute lumbar sprain patients were randomized into treatment group (26 cases) and control group (20 cases) using a random number table. The patients of the treatment group were treated by acupuncture stimulation of "Yaotong"-point[above Yintang (EX-HN 3)] and local Ashi-points for 20 min, and were asked to move the waist simultaneously during acupuncture stimulation...

Sudden blast phase (SBP) is a rare event in which patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) rapidly progress to the blast phase. Few patients on second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (2nd TKIs) have been reported to develop SBP. Here, we report a 45-year-old man diagnosed with CML in the chronic phase in April 2008 and immediately started on imatinib therapy. He achieved CCyR 12 months after starting imatinib therapy. Imatinib was followed by treatment with the 2nd TKIs nilotinib and dasatinib from January 2011 to yield a better response...

BACKGROUND: We previously reported that the clinical epicondylar axis (CEA) was approximately parallel to the transverse axis of the anterior pelvic plane (APP) in the standing position in normal subjects. The purpose of this study was to investigate the rotational alignment between APP in the standing position and the anteroposterior (AP) axis of the tibia relative to pelvic coordination in normal subjects. METHODS: This study included 68 healthy Japanese, 24 males and 44 females, without lumbago and knee pain...

RATIONALE: A hyperlordosis deformity of the lumbar spine is relatively rare, and surgical treatment has not been comprehensively addressed. In this case report, we describe the clinical presentation, surgical treatment, and medium-term follow-up of a patient presenting with a progressive lumbar hyperlordosis deformity after resection of a spinal lipoma associated with spina bifida. PATIENT CONCERNS: The patient was a 20-year-old woman presenting with a progressive hyperlordosis deformity of the lumbar spine associated with significant back pain (visual analog pain score of 89/100 mm), but with no neurological symptoms...

A 77-year-old man was admitted with posterior cervical pain, lumbago, a low-grade fever, and anorexia after bowel cleaning with polyethylene glycol for colonoscopy. Computed tomography of the neck showed calcification of the transverse ligament of the atlas. He was diagnosed with crowned dens syndrome (CDS). His condition improved following treatment with corticosteroids. This represents a rare case of CDS after endoscopy with polypectomy. We should consider CDS in the differential diagnosis of patients with unexplained fever and posterior cervical pain after bowel preparation for colonoscopy...

Some unilateral lower-limb amputees load the intact limb more than the prosthetic limb. This can cause chronic pains, fatigue, lumbago, and joint diseases, including knee osteoarthritis. To avoid and counteract these symptoms it is necessary to improve their asymmetric gait. Increasing the function of the hip abductor muscle is important to maintaining symmetrical weight distribution. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop a training assist system, which estimates and visualizes an abductor muscle by using a color-depth sensor...

OBJECTIVE: To compare fibromyalgia (FM) characteristics among patients identified in a community-based chronic pain cohort based on traditional International Classification of Diagnoses 9th revision (ICD-9) diagnostic coding, with that of patients identified using a novel predictive model. METHODS: This retrospective study used data collected from July 1999 to February 17, 2015, in multiple chronic pain clinics in the United States. Patients were assigned to the FM case group based on specific inclusion criteria using ICD-9 codes or, separately, from results of a novel FM predictive model that was developed using random forest and logistic regression techniques...

BACKGROUND: Wallet neuritis is an example of extra-spinal tunnel neuropathy concerning sciatic nerve. Its clinical appearance often gets confused with sciatica of lumbar spine origin. Wallet-induced chronic sciatic nerve constriction produces gluteal and ipsilateral lower extremity pain, tingling, and burning sensation. It was Lutz, first describing credit-card wallet sciatica in an Attorney, surfaced on Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), 1978; however, the condition has not been well-studied in various other occupations...

Chronic contained rupture (CCR) of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with vertebral erosion is a rare condition. Although it has been reported previously, it is still liable to be misdiagnosed. We present a case of CCR of AAA with vertebral erosion. A brief analysis of similar cases reported in the last 5 years is presented. A 71-year-old male was admitted to our hospital because of severe prickling pain in his left thigh. Computerized tomography angiography revealed an AAA which had caused erosion of L3 vertebral body and the left psoas muscle...

We describe a case of epileptic seizures occurring after the use of a COX-2 inhibitor. A 61-year-old man was admitted to our department because of a generalized tonic-clonic seizure. EEG showed generalized slowdown of the activity. Neuroimaging and blood samples studies did not evidence alterations, but a careful pharmacological history revealed that the patient had taken the COX-2 inhibitor etoricoxib to treat lumbago few days before the onset of clinical symptoms. No seizures were reported after etoricoxib discontinuation and an EEG resulted to be normal two months after this...
