Arthroscopic management of thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) osteoarthrosis (OA) is an approach that has unclear results. We performed a systematic review encompassing three electronic databases up to May 2016 for studies describing arthroscopic-assisted techniques for thumb CMC OA. Meta-analyses of visual analogue scores (VAS) for pain, Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) scores, grip strength and pinch strength before and after arthroscopy were performed for ten included non-randomized cohort studies comprising 294 patients...

STUDY DESIGN: Literature review. INTRODUCTION: Pain is a subjective experience that results from the modulation of nociception conveyed to the brain via the nervous system. Perception of pain takes place when potential or actual noxious stimuli are appraised as threats of injury. This appraisal is influenced by one's cognitions and emotions based on her/his pain-related experiences, which are processed in the forebrain and limbic areas of the brain. Unarguably, patients' psychological factors such as cognitions (eg, pain catastrophizing), emotions (eg, depression), and pain-related behaviors (eg, avoidance) can influence perceived pain intensity, disability, and treatment outcomes...

Voltage-gated sodium (Na v ) channels play a pivotal role for the changes in membrane potential and belong to large membrane proteins that compose four voltage sensor domains (VSD1-4). In this study we describe the binding mode and selectivity of one of the aryl sulfonamide sodium channel inhibitors, PF-04856264, for the VSD4s in Na v 1.4, Na v 1.5 and Na v 1.7, respectively, through molecular dynamics simulation and enhanced post-dynamics analyses. Our results show that there are three binding site regions (BSR1-3) in the combination of the ligand and receptors, of which BSR1 and BSR3 contribute to the selectivity and affinity of the ligand to the receptor...

It has been reported that syringomyelia is rarely associated with degenerative spinal disorders, but the case of holocord syringomyelia is never reported. We here present a case of a 59-year-old woman with right shoulder pain, dysesthesia of the right hand, and gait disturbance. Radiographically, examinations of the spine demonstrated holocord syringomyelia with ossification of ligamentum flavum at T2/3 level. Holocord syringomyelia was reduced remarkably after posterior decompression at the T2/3 level, and her symptoms also improved...

Introduction: Currently, it is challenging to treat giant cell tumor (GCT) of distal radius. For Campanacci grade III or recurrent GCTs, en bloc resection has been accepted as a better treatment option. Although numerous methods are available for reconstruction, all of them have some limitations in joint function and complications. In this study, our aims were to treat the GCT of distal radius with uncemented three-dimensional (3D)-printed prosthesis and to present and evaluate the surgical techniques and short-term outcomes...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of hand osteoarthritis (HOA) has been reported to be higher amongst women over 50 years old (66%) compared to men of the same age (34%). Although exercise therapy has been shown effective in reducing symptoms and disability associated with HOA, adherence to treatment programs remains low. The primary objective of this RCT is to examine the effectiveness of a 12-week knitting program for morning stiffness (primary outcome) and pain relief (secondary outcome) 2 h post-wakening in females (aged 50 to 85 years old) with mild to moderate hand osteoarthritis (HOA)...

Carpel tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition in which median nerve compression results in paresthesias and pain in the wrist and hand. We are going to report a rare case of topiramate-induced neuropathy which clinically resembles CTS. Discontinuation of topiramate resulted in spontaneous resolution of numbness, paresthesia and pain in a few days. High clinical suspicion is advised in patients who are on topiramate and present with signs of compressive neuropathy. Level of evidence: V.

The patient was a 69-year-old male who had started experiencing acute-onset pain in both shoulder joints and edema of both hands and feet. His symptoms progressively worsened within 1 month. Laboratory data indicated elevated CRP and erythrocyte sedimentation rate despite the normal range of antinuclear antibodies and rheumatoid factor and normal organ function. Furthermore, imaging data of the hand indicated synovitis without bone erosions. Meanwhile, chest CT revealed a lung tumor, leading to a diagnosis of primary lung adenocarcinoma with EGFR mutation (cT2aN3M0, stage IIIB)...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Acute appendicitis is the first cause of surgical emergencies. It is still a difficult diagnosis to make, especially in young persons, the elderly, and in reproductive-age women, in whom a series of inflammatory conditions can have signs and symptoms similar to those of acute appendicitis. Different scoring systems have been created to increase diagnostic accuracy, and they are inexpensive, noninvasive, and easy to use and reproduce. The modified Alvarado score is probably the most widely used and accepted in emergency services worldwide...
