PURPOSE: Randomized trials have shown that honey is effective for the prevention of radiation-induced mucositis in head and neck cancer patients. Because there is no efficacious preventative for radiation esophagitis in lung cancer patients, this trial compared liquid honey, honey lozenges, and standard supportive care for radiation esophagitis. METHODS: The patients were stratified by percentage of esophagus receiving specific radiation dose (V60 Gy esophagus <30% or ≥30%) and were then randomized between supportive care, 10 mL of liquid manuka honey 4 times a day, and 2 lozenges (10 mL of dehydrated manuka honey) 4 times a day during concurrent chemotherapy and radiation therapy...

BACKGROUND: Subspinous impingement of the anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) on the femoral head-neck junction is increasingly recognized as a source of hip impingement. A classification system of AIIS morphology has previously been proposed that correlates with reduced hip motion and may predispose patients to subspinous hip impingement. PURPOSE: To examine the morphological distribution of AIIS types in patients with and without diagnosed hip impingement and correlate AIIS morphology to intraoperative findings at the time of surgery...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Neck pain exerts a steep personal and socioeconomic toll, ranking as the fourth leading cause of disability. The principal determinant in treatment decisions is whether pain is neuropathic or nonneuropathic, as this affects treatment at all levels. Yet, no study has sought to classify neck pain in this manner. METHODS: One hundred participants referred to an urban, academic military treatment facility with a primary diagnosis of neck pain were enrolled and followed up for 6 months...

Reports exist of severe upper back pain of unknown etiology after administration of large volumes into the epidural space. We present a case of an otherwise healthy parturient who developed severe upper back and neck pain after receiving only a small volume of epidural medication. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a congenitally narrowed spinal canal because of short pedicle syndrome. Epidural injectate occupies and compresses a percentage of the spinal canal and its neuronal contents. This may result in pain and epidural intolerance when continued injectate reaches a critical point, a threshold that is lower with shortened pedicles or congenital spinal stenosis...
