Acute low back pain, defined as less than 6 weeks in duration, does not require imaging in the absence of "red flags" that may indicate a cause, such as fracture, infection, or malignancy. When imaging is indicated, it is important to rule out a host of abnormalities that may be responsible for the pain and any associated symptoms. A common mnemonic VINDICATE can help ensure a thorough consideration of the possible causes. Read More

Injuries to the Rigid Spine: What the Spine Surgeon Wants to Know.

Radiographics 2019 Mar-Apr;39(2):449-466. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

From the Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis St, Boston, MA 02115.

The biomechanical stability of the spine is altered in patients with a rigid spine, rendering it vulnerable to fracture even from relatively minor impact. The rigid spine entities are ankylosing spondylitis (AS), diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, degenerative spondylosis, and a surgically fused spine. The most common mechanism of injury resulting in fracture is hyperextension, which often leads to unstable injury in patients with a rigid spine per the recent AOSpine classification system.

Enoxaparin administration within 24 hours of caesarean section: a 6-year single-centre experience and patient outcomes.

J Obstet Gynaecol 2018 Dec 22:1-4. Epub 2018 Dec 22.

a Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics , Kyoto University , Kyoto , Japan.

A caesarean section (CS) is a major risk factor for a venous thromboembolism, and enoxaparin, a low-molecular-weight heparin, has been widely used for thromboprophylaxis. However, it remains unclear whether an enoxaparin thromboprophylaxis has an acceptable safety profile when given early after CS compared to delayed administration, especially in the presence of an epidural catheter. This study aimed to survey cases in which enoxaparin administration was performed within 24 hours of CS and to evaluate patient outcomes with or without epidural anaesthesia. Read More
