Accelerated Aging of PS Blocks in PS- b-PMMA Diblock Copolymer under Hard Confinement.

This letter presents accelerated physical aging of polystyrene (PS) blocks in polystyrene-block-poly(methyl methacrylate) (PS-b-PMMA) diblock copolymers under hard confinement. The three-dimensional h...

Ultrasonographic Features of Lower-Limb Joints in Gout: Which Joints and Clinical Characteristics Would Provide More Information for Diagnosis?

This observational cross-sectional study evaluated the distribution of ultrasound (US) features of lower-limb joints and the risk factors of tophus in gout patients.

A kinematic and kinetic analysis of the hip and knee joints in patients with posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction; comparison with healthy age-matched controls.

The biomechanical abnormalities in patients with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) have been described, but few studies have investigated biomechanical chains of adjacent joints. Therefore, w...

Regional Anesthetic Blocks in Plastic Surgery Using Portable Ultrasound: A Simplified Approach.

With the introduction of latest generation ultrasound technology and its easy availability and portability, regional anesthetic blocks, which were formally in the domain of anesthesiologists, have now...

The impact of walking speed on the kinetic behaviour of different foot joints.

The foot and ankle complex consists of multiple joints which have been hypothesized to fulfill a significant role in the lower limb kinetic chain during human locomotion. Walking speed is known to aff...

The Specificity of Cervical Facet Medial Branch Blocks

Cervical facet arthropathy is a common cause of chronic neck pain. The "gold standard" for diagnosis is either blocking the facet joints, or more commonly blocking the medial branch nerves...

Efficacy and Cost: Benefit Ratio of 0, 1, and 2 Medial Branch Blocks for Lumbar Facet Joint Radiofrequency Denervation

Lumbar zygapophysial (facet) joint pain is a common cause of low back pain. Radiofrequency (RF) denervation is an effective and low risk treatment of chronic low back pain of suspected fa...

Cooled RF Lesion MRI Characteristics

This Prospective, Single-center, Pilot Study will assist in gaining an understanding of the actual CRFA lesions in an in vivo situation in areas where CRFA is utilized as a standard of car...

FDG PET/MRI Evaluation of Facet Joint Pain

Chronic pain incurs over half a trillion dollars in lost productivity (healthcare, lost wages, etc) annually. The most common source is low back pain (LBP), often from facet joints. The cl...

Pre and Post Arthrogram Ultrasound Images of Joints

The purpose of this study is to determine the usefulness of contrast in ultrasonography of the joints.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chronic inflammatory condition affecting the axial joints, such as the SACROILIAC JOINT and other intervertebral or costovertebral joints. It occurs predominantly in young males and is characterized by pain and stiffness of joints (ANKYLOSIS) with inflammation at tendon insertions.

Pain in the region of the METATARSUS. It can include pain in the METATARSAL BONES; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and/or intermetatarsal joints (TARSAL JOINTS).

A type of inflammatory arthritis associated with PSORIASIS, often involving the axial joints and the peripheral terminal interphalangeal joints. It is characterized by the presence of HLA-B27-associated SPONDYLARTHROPATHY, and the absence of rheumatoid factor.

The articulations extending from the WRIST distally to the FINGERS. These include the WRIST JOINT; CARPAL JOINTS; METACARPOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and FINGER JOINT.

The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
