Results published in The New England Journal of Medicine showed no significant difference between extended prophylaxis with aspirin and Xarelto in the prevention of symptomatic venous thromboembolism after total hip or knee arthroplasty.
Pain is essential for survival. However, it could also slow rehabilitation, or could become a distinct disorder. How strongly we feel it depends on our individual pain threshold. Scientists have discovered that this threshold can be increased by a new fitness method called Jymmin. It combines working out on gym machines with free musical improvisation -- and makes us less sensitive towards physical discomfort.
Humeral Fractures Sustained During Arm Wrestling: A Retrospective Cohort Analysis and Review of the Literature
Arm wrestling places significant torque on the humeral shaft. A spiral distal humeral shaft fracture is an unusual but significant injury that can result. Of 93 patients who presented between 2009 and 2017 with closed humeral shaft fractures that were managed nonoperatively, 9 sustained the fractures while arm wrestling.
Custom knee technology used with total knee arthroplasty may yield implants that closely reproduce the patient’s condylar anatomy and are associated with improved quality and reproducibile postoperative function, according to a presenter at the Current Concepts in Joint Replacement Winter Meeting.
Arachnoiditis is a neurological condition that causes pain in the back, perineum (the space between the genitals and the rectum), legs, arms, and feet. Arachnoiditis can also affect a person's vision, sight, and mobility.
