Opioid availability statistics from the International Narcotics Control Board do not reflect the medical use of opioids: comparison with sales data from Scandinavia.

Scand J Pain 2021 Jul 27. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

The NEPI Foundation and Unit of Health Care Analysis, Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

Objectives: Opioid analgesics are essential in clinical practice, but their excessive use is associated with addiction risk. Increases in opioid prescription rates have fuelled an epidemic of opioid addiction in the USA, making statistics on medical opioid use a critical warning signal. A dramatic 150% increase in Swedish opioid access 2001-2013 was recently reported based on data from the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB; Berterame et al. Read More

Ultra-Low Energy Cycled Burst Spinal Cord Stimulation Yields Robust Outcomes in Pain, Function, and Affective Domains: A Subanalysis From Two Prospective, Multicenter, International Clinical Trials.

Neuromodulation 2021 Jul 27. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

University of Chicago Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA.

Introduction: DeRidder's burst stimulation design has become a key spinal cord stimulation (SCS) waveform because it reduces the intensity of pain as well as its associated emotional distress. The brain pathways underlying these outcomes may also allow for the effects of stimulation to carry over after stimulation is turned off, making it amenable to intermittent application. Here, the utility of intermittently cycled burst was evaluated using data from two large real-world prospective studies (TRIUMPH, REALITY). Read More

Flexion contracture can be relieved by concurrent notchplasty in medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2021 Jul 24:103020. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: Given that medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) not only delays the progression of osteoarthritis but also alleviates the resulting pain, surgical outcomes would be improved if limited ROM can also be managed. In this regard, the effect of concurrent notchplasty on flexion contracture has not been evaluated.

Hypothesis: (1) Concurrent notchplasty in OWHTO would relieve flexion contracture regardless of the severity of osteoarthritis and this effect would be maintained over time, and (2) concurrent notchplasty would not cause any added complications compared to the same procedure without notchplasty.

Models of Inflammation: Carrageenan- or Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA)-Induced Edema and Hypersensitivity in the Rat.

Curr Protoc 2021 Jul;1(7):e202

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Animal models of inflammation are used to assess the production of inflammatory mediators at sites of inflammation, the processing of pain sensation at CNS sites, the anti-inflammatory properties of agents such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and the efficacy of putative analgesic compounds in reversing cutaneous hypersensitivity. Detailed in this article are methods to elicit and measure carrageenan- and complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced cutaneous inflammation. Due to possible differences between the dorsal root sensory system and the trigeminal sensory system, injections into either the footpad or vibrissal pad are described. Read More
