Is Low-value Testing Before Low-risk Hand Surgery Associated With Increased Downstream Healthcare Use and Reimbursements? A National Claims Database Analysis.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2022 May 24. Epub 2022 May 24.

VOICES Health Policy Research Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford University, Redwood City, CA, USA.

Background: Minor hand procedures can often be completed in the office without any laboratory testing. Preoperative screening tests before minor hand procedures are unnecessary and considered low value because they can lead to preventable invasive confirmatory tests and/or procedures. Prior studies have shown that low-value testing before low-risk hand surgery is still common, yet little is known about their downstream effects and associated costs. Read More

Treatment failure after rotational atherectomy and balloon angioplasty in recurrent cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery: a case report.

J Int Med Res 2022 Mar;50(3):3000605221086149

Department of Radiology, Chung-Ang University Hospital, Chung-Ang University College of Medicine, Dongjak-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Cystic adventitial disease (CAD), which usually affects the popliteal artery, is a rare vascular condition in which fluid accumulates in the sub-adventitial layer, compressing the lumen. Historically, surgical treatment is preferred over endovascular or minimally invasive techniques, due to its lower recurrence rates. Here, the case of a 67-year-old male patient, in whom rotational atherectomy was performed for recurrent CAD following surgical cyst excision and patch angioplasty is reported. Read More

[The Baker's cyst - a blunt sword of Damokles in radiosynoviorthesis (RSO)?]

Nuklearmedizin 2022 Feb 29;61(1):42-48. Epub 2021 Oct 29.

Standort Gießen, Überörtliche Berufsausübungsgemeinschaft für Nuklearmedizin, Hanau - Frankfurt - Offenbach - Gießen, Giessen, Germany.

The existence of a popliteal Baker's cyst was regarded as a contraindication for radiosynoviorthesis of the knee joint since decades. A so-called "ventile mechanism" was discussed leading to a significant concentration of the intraarticularly applied, high energy beta emitting radiopharmaceutical yttrium-90-colloid in the cyst. This cyst arises from a bursa beneath the tendon of the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle, normally communicating with the knee joint space. Read More
