J Ultrasound Med 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

Objectives: To assess adequacy of transvaginal ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (TVUS-FNAB) for pathologic diagnosis of pelvic masses performed using onsite cytopathology consultation.

Methods: In this Institutional Review Board approved, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant study, radiology records were retrospectively queried to identify patients who underwent TVUS-FNAB of a pelvic mass over a 11-year duration. TVUS-FNAB adequacy was determined by correlating cytopathology results with transvaginal ultrasound-guided core-needle biopsy (TVUS-CNB) or surgical pathology results when available, and with clinical diagnostic confidence when additional pathology confirmation was not available.

Pelvic tilt impacts cup orientation on CT: how accurate is the gold standard?

Acta Radiol 2021 May 13:2841851211009466. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Regensburg University Medical Center, Bad Abbach, Germany.

Background: Computed tomography (CT) is the gold standard for the accurate measurement of cup inclination and anteversion in total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, functional cup position strongly depends on the tilt of the pelvis and thus pelvic tilt in the supine position on the CT table harbors the risk of misinterpretation.

Purpose: To evaluate the influence of pelvic tilt on cup measurements in postoperative CT scans. Read More

Effects of gait retraining with focus on impact versus gait retraining with focus on cadence on pain, function and lower limb kinematics in runners with patellofemoral pain: Protocol of a randomized, blinded, parallel group trial with 6-month follow-up.

PLoS One 2021 12;16(5):e0250965. Epub 2021 May 12.

Sciences and Technologies in Health Post-graduation Program, University of Brasília, Brasília, Federal District, Brazil.

Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is one of the most prevalent injuries in runners. Unfortunately, a substantial part of injured athletes do not recover fully from PFP in the long-term. Although previous studies have shown positive effects of gait retraining in this condition, retraining protocols often lack clinical applicability because they are time-consuming, costly for patients and require a treadmill.
