#1
Pietro Aniello Laudato, Viktor Bartanusz
Benign low back pain is frequent in the lucratively active population. Degenerative changes are considered the most frequent causes. The identification of pain generators remain challenging. Bone marrow lesions, Modic changes, are frequently associated with benign low back pain, mostly type 1. The etiology of Modic changes is unknown, both infectious and autoimmune mechanisms have been suggested. Despite the strong association of Modic changes with low back pain it is not clear whether lumbar surgery (lumbar fusion, total disc replacement) has any role in the management of these patients...

This study sought to determine the minimal clinically important difference (MCID) for two frequently used measures of symptom severity in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: the Clinician Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) and the PTSD Symptom Checklist (PCL). Data from a randomized clinical trial of antipsychotic medication in military-related treatment-resistant PTSD (N= 267) included assessments 4 times over 26 weeks. Methods for estimating the MCID were based on both the anchor-based approach, using the Clinical Global Impressions (CGI) severity and improvement scales, rated by both clinicians and patients; and the distribution-based approach (based on standardized z-scores)...

BACKGROUND: There is conflicting evidence about what factors influence outcomes after total knee replacement (TKR). The objective is to identify baseline factors that differentiate patients who achieve both, minimal clinically important difference (MCID) and a patient acceptable symptom state (PASS) in pain and function, measured by WOMAC, after TKR from those who do not attain scores above the cutoff in either of these dimensions. METHODS: One-year prospective multicentre study...

BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip is a disease that entails a major burden for patients and the society as a whole. One way of measuring this burden for the patient is through impact on Health-related Quality of Life (HRQL). The Oxford Hip Score (OHS) is a well-known tool to measure HRQL in patients with OA of the hip. This study aims to assess the psychometric properties of the Spanish-adapted version of the OHS, including its reliability, validity, and sensitivity to change...

Michael J Rossi
Pain control after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair will invariably encompass a multimodal approach which will include, in some form, an anesthetic block. The authors of "Effects of a Single-Dose Interscalene Block on Pain and Stress Biomarkers in Patients Undergoing Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair: A Randomized Controlled Trial" demonstrate better pain control and a decrease in levels of the stress biomarker insulin with the use of a single-dose interscalene block (SISB) and general anesthesia compared to general anesthesia alone...

BACKGROUND: Management of osteonecrosis of the femoral head remains challenging. Core decompression and free vascularized fibular grafting are commonly used surgical procedures for treatment of osteonecrosis of the femoral head. Few studies, however, have compared these two procedures in a randomized controlled study, in terms of improved vascularity of the femoral head, progression of disease, or hip scores. QUESTION/PURPOSES: (1) What is the effect of core decompression and fibular grafting on vascularity of the femoral head as measured by single-photon emission CT (SPECT)/CT? (2) Does one of these two methods lead to greater progression of Association Research Circulation Osseous (ARCO) stage as determined by serial MRI? (3) What is the relationship between the change in vascularity of the femoral head and hip function as measured by the Harris hip score (HHS) and progression to THA as an endpoint? METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was performed between June 2010 and October 2012 at Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University...
