There are various contents about diagnosis and treatment of low back pain in Neijing (Inner Canon of Yellow Emperor), which are closely related to meridians and collaterals, forming a complete theoretical system of meridian differentiation for low back pain. Its theory and application are interpreted in this paper from five main aspects, including 18 meridians and collaterals densely distributing in the tendons and bones of the waist, the pathogenesis of low back pain lying in the disorders of the meridian qi and blood, the nature of low back pain being reflected by the color and shape of meridians and collaterals, the disordered meridians of low back pain being first identified based on syndrome differentiation, the acupuncture prescription being selected according to meridian differentiation...

The spiritual qi "circulating" "exiting and entering", and "nothing relevant with skin, flesh, tendon and bone" are the clues to understand the original intention of acupoint recorded in Lingshu (Miraculous Pivota). In the paper, regarding the interpretation of these words and phrases in Shuowen Jiezi (Origin of Chinese Characters), in combination with TCM theory, the connotations of acupoint are summarized in 4 aspects, including the essential characteristics of the changes in the antipathogenic qi, functional property of pathway communication, the clinical features of diagnosis and treatment and the three-dimensional structural characteristics...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the differences of affected-side ankle plantar flexors function and clinical efficacy between contralateral acupuncture combined with rehabilitation training and rehabilitation training alone for patients with acute closed achilles tendon rupture. METHODS: Seventy-four patients with acute closed achilles tendon rupture were randomly assigned to an observation group and a control group, 37 cases in each group. Patients in the both groups were treated with routine rehabilitation training after the operation for 12 weeks; besides, patients in the observation group were treated with contralateral acupuncture at Zusanli (ST 36), Yanglingquan (GB 34), Chengshan (BL 57), Taixi (KI 3) before rehabilitation training in the first 6 weeks...

Nongyu Liu
The author provides the hypothesis on the "sinew-meridian system" in terms of the physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment of meridians and sinew-meridians. Meridians are nourished with blood and sinew-meridians are softened with yang qi. Meridians are circulated in linear form and sinew-meridians are distributed in centripetal state. Meridians are communicated externally and internally and sinew-meridians are connected with tendons and bones. Meridians pertain to zangfu organs and sinew-meridians stabilize zangfu organs...

Standard pharmacological treatment of musculoskeletal conditions is often associated with relevant side effects. Botanical preparations endowed with a good tolerability profile, therefore, could have a role in the management of these disorders. Among different natural products, Boswellia serrata extracts have long been used for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, given their marked anti-inflammatory activity and their ability to promote tissue regeneration. However, standard preparations of Boswellia serrata show overall modest pharmacokinetic properties, a limitation which may ultimately lead to reduced efficacy...

Background Muscles and tendons are subjected to a high level of stress in everyday life and sports. This often leads to injuries and is associated with training failure and reduced performance as well as with high costs for treatment and rehabilitation. Fast and successful treatment is therefore very important, both from an athletic and economic point of view. This study aims to demonstrate the relevance of biomechanical procedures for the objective monitoring of rehabilitation. At the same time, the results are to be used to establish progress and evaluation criteria for an efficient and controlled rehabilitation...

INTRODUCTION: Secondary repair of flexor tendon injuries remain a challenging procedure for hand surgeons. Usually, secondary reconstruction should be performed by staged approach. When the tendon and pulley integrity are intact, tenolysis may be the first surgical option. One-/two-stage tendon grafts are suggested when the integrity of flexor tendon is compromised. Active tendon implants (Brunelli prostheses) may represent an efficient option in patients with a poor prognosis, as well as whenever classical techniques fail...

REVIEW
Alessio Bernasconi, François Lintz, Francesco Sadile
Subtalar arthroereisis has been reported as a minimally-invasive, effective and low-risk procedure in the treatment of flatfoot mainly in children but also in adults.It has been described as a standalone or adjunctive procedure, and is indicated in the treatment of flexible flatfoot, tibialis posterior tendon dysfunction, tarsal coalition and accessory navicular syndrome.Different devices for subtalar arthroereisis are currently used throughout the world associated with soft-tissue and bone procedures, depending on the surgeon rather than on standardised or validated protocols...

Extension of the fingers is a complex act. Boutonnière deformity is defined by flexion at the proximal inter-phalangeal (PIP) joint and hyperextension at the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint due to disruption of the central slip of the extensor tendon. Swan neck deformity is defined by hyperextension at the PIP joint and flexion at the DIP joint, and the pathology is divided into intrinsic, extrinsic, and articular. The deformities are a result of imbalance of the tendons and ligaments in the fingers. Treatment is depending on the underlying cause and includes surgery and non-operative treatment...

A proximal humerus fracture typically occurs when an elderly woman falls directly onto her shoulder or on her outstretched arm. Local pain in the shoulder and immobility of the upper arm raise a suspicion of a significant injury. Other bone and tendon injuries in the shoulder region as well as dislocation of the shoulder should be considered on differential diagnosis. Diagnosis is achieved by plain X-ray. Most fractures can be treated conservatively. Consultation with an orthopedist is needed, if there are several fracture fragments with extensive dislocation...

Background: The position of the gastrocnemius tendon in relation to the leg length may be different in children with cerebral palsy as compared to normal children. The palpation of muscle bellies or previous experience of the operating surgeon is employed to place the surgical incision for lengthening of the gastrocnemius aponeurosis. Inaccurate localisation may cause incorrect incisions and a risk of iatrogenic damage to the vital structures (i.e. sural nerve). Objectives: The aim of our study is to compare gastrocnemius length in-vivo between paretic and unaffected children and create a formula to localise the muscle-tendon junction accurately...

Achilles tendinopathy can be a chronic disabling condition affecting both athletic and sedentary patients. Multiple new treatment approaches have developed, including shock wave therapy and various types of injection. One of the novel treatment methods used is the injection of Aethoxysklerol or polidocanol, a sclerosing substance injected under ultrasound guidance targeting areas of neovascularisation. We report the case of a 78-year-old lady who suffered a complete Achilles tendon rupture following injection of Aethoxysklerol...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate the potential enhancing effect of celastrol on the stemness of human tendon-derived stem cells (hTSCs) in vitro and the underlying molecular mechanisms. METHODS: The capability of hTSC self-renewal was assessed by cell proliferation and colony formation as determined with the CCK-8 kit. Adipogenesis, chondrogenesis, and osteogenesis were determined by Oil Red O, Alcian Blue, and Alizarin Red staining, respectively. The relative mRNA levels of Sox9, PPARγ, Runx2, Smad7, and HIF1α were determined by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR)...

BACKGROUND: Fractures of the humeral greater tuberosity (GT) are a frequent injury progressively treated with arthroscopic suture anchor repair. Yet, no biomechanical study has been performed comparing fixation strength of arthroscopic single- (SR) vs. double row (DR) fixation. METHODS: Standardized fractures of the greater tuberosity were created in 12 fresh frozen proximal humeri. After random assignation to the SR or DR group the fixed humeri were tested applying cyclic loading to the supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendon...

Tennis elbow is a common musculoskeletal condition affecting middle-aged patients with symptoms usually lasting from 6 months to 2 years. The vast majority of individuals will respond to conservative therapy; however, some will require surgical intervention. A new treatment system has been developed for use with ultrasound guidance in the ultrasonic microresection of tendinopathic tissue. This technology has been implemented in the TX1 Tissue Removal System and is used to treat various tendinopathies by debridement using targeted ultrasonic energy...
