The PRP group had shown more favourable response in comparison to steroid group at 1-week post-injection, which suggest that PRP therapy can be considered as an efficient treatment choice for grade 2 proximal hamstring injuries with better short-term pain relief based on limited pilot data. According to research conducted by the researchers of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston USA, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) emerges as a conservative treatment to treat grade 2 proximal hamstring injuries with excellent short-term relief from pain.

The PROMIS PI score estimates the variations in VAS pain scores and considered as a useful, standardized tool for assessing pain for research and clinical purposes, an analysis of the Journal, Orthopedics. The objective of the study was to determine the association of Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Pain Interference (PI) score with traditionally received visual analog scale (VAS) scores and to discover the impact of patient demographics on VAS and PROMIS PI scores.

Friedman BW et al. elucidated that Greater Occipital Nerve Blocks (GONB) might be an effective treatment for ED patients with an acute migraine, suffering from a moderate or a severe headache after the application of intravenous metoclopramide. But, this investigation was discontinued before achieving a priori sample size due to the slow enrollment.

Introduction:

It is believed that Greater occipital nerve block (GONB) is an effective treatment for acute migraine, but there has been no randomized efficacy data published for the same. It was hypothesized that bilateral GONB with bupivacaine may lead to greater rates of headache freedom than a sham injection among emergency department (ED) patients who described the persistence of a moderate or severe headache despite standard treatment with i.v. Metoclopramide.

Abatacept is costimulation modulator used for the management of RA. In this study, the MRI of bilateral hands affirmed that Abatacept reduced synovitis and osteitis scores among RA patients and did not worsen erosion and JSN scores, but erosion started to repair in 10% of patients.

Introduction:

To investigate the efficacy of Abatacept among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) applying magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of bilateral hands.

Osteoporosis can either cause thoracolumbar fractures (nontraumatic fracture) or may function as a contributing factor in cases of traumatic fractures. This study confirms that the application of polymethyl methacrylate augmented Cement-Injectable Cannulated Pedicle Screw (CICPS) as an effective and safe surgical method for the management of osteoporosis-related vertebral fractures with good clinical outcomes and low complications rates.

Introduction:

Assessment of the safety and efficacy of novel polymethyl methacrylate-augmented bone cement-injectable cannulated pedicle screw (CICPS) in patients with AO type A-thoracolumbar vertebral compression fractures associated with osteoporosis.

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) has been shown to induce oxidative stress (OxS). This study clarifies the association of MetS with osteoarthritis and found a shift in the serum of OA patients, as indicator of of high-grade OxS and dysglycemia and the OA severity and MetS were independently associated with oxLDL.

Introduction:

Earlier investigations propose that metabolic disturbances might be correlated with the osteoarthritis (OA) development. Relationships have been observed among OA and the individual components of metabolic syndrome (MetS). MetS have been linked with enhanced oxidative stress (OxS). This study clarifies the MetS components role in OA and to assess the levels of OxS in OA subjects and in age-matched controls.
