Radial MR Screen of the Sacroiliac Joints in the Lumbar Spine of Patients with Chronic Lower Back Pain

M Al-Mulla, V Babu, A Abdullah and W Mohammed

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: May 12, 2018

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can reliably detect inflammation and structural changes in sacroiliac joints (SIJs) in patients with lower back pain (LBP). However, patients with LBP are usually referred for MRI of the lower back (e.g. lumbar spine LS), and imaging of the SIJs is rarely requested for these patients. The aim of this work is to use radial MRI as an additional screening technique for SIJ pathology presenting in lumbar spine patients with chronic LBP....

Deltoid Compartment Syndrome following Shoulder Arthroscopy: A Case Report

Paul J Cagle Jr, Dave R Shukla and Bradford O Parsons

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 19, 2018

Acute deltoid compartment syndrome is a rare event. This is a report of a 70-year-old male who developed an acute deltoid compartment syndrome after a shoulder arthroscopy. Due to a mechanical heart valve, the patient was required to remain on anticoagulation for the procedure. A bony acromioplasty and arthroscopic biceps tenodesis were performed. On the first day after surgery increased swelling and pressure consistent with a hematoma was appreciated. The pressure caused increased deltoid compa...

Prevalence of Vertebral Body Deformities According to Genant's Classification in Patients with Non-Traumatic Lumbar or Dorsal Acute Pain

Guillén Astete CA , Pijoán Moratalla C, Quiñones Torres JR and Vázquez Díaz M

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 09, 2017

The existence of a vertebral body deformity is considered a relevant finding in order to start a secondary therapeutic prevention of osteoporosis in a population at risk. However, not all vertebral body deformities are properly identified and registered. In our experience, those, less striking, can be unnoticed. One of the most common radiographic studies of the axial skeleton is the lumbar and dorsal acute pain....
