Protocol for serious fall injury adjudication in the Strategies to Reduce Injuries and Develop Confidence in Elders (STRIDE) study.

Inj Epidemiol 2019 15;6:14. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

8Department of Internal Medicine, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT USA.

Background: This paper describes a protocol for determining the incidence of serious fall injuries for Strategies to Reduce Injuries and Develop Confidence in Elders (STRIDE), a large, multicenter pragmatic clinical trial with limited resources for event adjudication. We describe how administrative data (from participating health systems and Medicare claims) can be used to confirm participant-reported events, with more time- and resource-intensive full-text medical record data used only on an "as-needed" basis.

Methods: STRIDE is a pragmatic cluster-randomized controlled trial involving 5451 participants age ≥ 70 and at increased risk for falls, served by 86 primary care practices in 10 US health systems. Read More

Department of Public and Occupational Health, Amsterdam UMC, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Objectives: It has often been suggested that screen work (ie, work on desktop, laptop, notebook or tablet computers) is a risk factor for neck and upper extremity symptoms. However, an up-to-date overview and quantification of evidence are lacking. We aimed to systematically review the association of exposure to screen work with neck and upper extremity symptoms from prospective studies. Read More

School Nurses on the Front Lines of Medicine: Emergencies Associated With Sport and Physical Activities: Part 1.

NASN Sch Nurse 2019 May 9;34(3):155-161. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Professor, Departments of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, Penn State College of Medicine.

Illness and injury associated with sport and physical activities may occur in the school setting. Although most sport-related illness and injury in students are considered minor emergencies, life- and limb-threatening illnesses or injuries may occur, such as sudden cardiac arrest, heat stroke, status asthmaticus, catastrophic brain or cervical spine injuries, hypoglycemia, blunt chest/abdominal injuries, or extremity fractures requiring surgery. It is important for the school nurse to recognize potential life- and limb-threatening emergencies associated with sport and physical activity, to initiate stabilization of the student with life- and limb-threatening symptoms, and to triage these students to an appropriate level of care (back to the classroom, home with their guardian with follow up at their primary healthcare provider's office, or directly to the closest emergency department via emergency medical services).

Entrapment Neuropathies of the Upper Extremity.

Med Clin North Am 2019 Mar;103(2):357-370

Department of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, WACC 739B, Boston, MA 02114, USA. Electronic address:

Upper extremity entrapment neuropathies are common and can cause pain, sensory loss, and muscle weakness that lead to functional disability. In this article, the authors review common entrapment neuropathies of the upper extremities, including median neuropathy at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, and radial neuropathy. The authors discuss the pathophysiology of nerve compression and typical etiologies, as well as strategies for differentiating between common mimics such as cervical radiculopathy and for selecting between various treatment modalities.

False-Positive Rates for Nerve Conduction Studies and Ultrasound in Patients Without Clinical Signs and Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

J Hand Surg Am 2019 Mar 8;44(3):181-185. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA.

Purpose: The purpose of the study was to determine the rate of false positives for nerve conduction studies (NCSs) and ultrasound (US) in a population without signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) using a CTS-6 score of 0 as the reference standard.

Methods: Patients were included in this study if they were referred for NCSs for a reason other than CTS (cubital tunnel syndrome and/or cervical radiculopathy) and they had a CTS-6 score of 0. An US measurement of the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the median nerve at the level of the carpal tunnel inlet was performed by a certified ultrasound technician. Read More

J Am Coll Radiol 2018 May 20;15(5):803-808. Epub 2018 Mar 20.

Department of Radiology, Ochsner Clinic Foundation and The University of Queensland School of Medicine, Ochsner Clinical School, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Practice leaders surveyed in the 2017 ACR Human Resources Commission workforce survey reported that 25% of the radiologists or radiation oncologists they supervised had neck pain, 32% had low back pain, and 16% were dealing with a repetitive stress injury. The prevalence rates of these musculoskeletal ailments among radiologists and radiation oncologists were consistent with those reported in the literature in other populations. However, these prevalence rates may be underestimated because practice leaders, not the radiologists themselves, were surveyed, and the leaders may not be aware of all injuries. Read More

Hand (N Y) 2019 07 20;14(4):471-476. Epub 2018 Mar 20.

1 Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

The purpose of this study was to determine the rates and types of complications and secondary surgeries after mini-open carpal tunnel release. A retrospective cohort study was performed for 1,328 patients who underwent mini-open carpal tunnel release from August 2008 to July 2013. Patients were excluded for acute trauma, the index procedure being revision surgery, neoplasm, age less than 18 years, incomplete records, and postoperative follow-up less than 1 month, which yielded 904 patients who underwent 1,144 surgeries.

Sensory profiles are comparable in patients with distal and proximal entrapment neuropathies, while the pain experience differs.

Curr Med Res Opin 2018 11 13;34(11):1899-1906. Epub 2018 Apr 13.

h Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences , Oxford University, Oxford , United Kingdom.

Objective: Distal and proximal entrapment neuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and cervical radiculopathy (CR) share similar etiologies. Experimental models suggest that, despite comparable etiology, pathomechanisms associated with injuries of the peripheral and central axon branches are distinct. This study therefore compared self-reported and elicited sensory profiles in patients with distal and proximal entrapment neuropathies. Read More
