The flexibility of the hamstrings is a very important component both for general health and when exercising. The lack of hamstring flexibility has been related to the increase in the likel...
The purpose of this project is to compare different treatment options for lateral epicondylitis. Lateral epicondylitis is a pain condition involving extensor muscles fo the forearm origina...
Ultrasound guided placement of the knife intersphincteric increases accuracy and safety during sphincterotomy. Secondly 3-D ultrasound visualizes that the internal anal sphincter is divide...
Lateral epicondylitis, also called tennis elbow, is the most common disease in elbow-pain symptoms. The symptoms can have a major impact on the patient's activity of daily life, including ...
We wish to address the efficacy and safety of Platelet Rich Plasma (blood platelets), a new treatment for lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and compare this new treatment to either inje...
Lateral epicondylitis is a painful condition related to the myotendinous origin of the extensor muscles at the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. Primary treatment typically involves the use of rest, ...
To define how the learning curve for success in ultrasound-guided PCNL is impacted by body mass index (BMI). Previous research has shown ultrasound-guided percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) to be an ...
This study was performed to compare outcomes of open, arthroscopic, and percutaneous surgical techniques for lateral epicondylitis. We searched PubMed (MEDLINE) for literature published between Januar...
The lateral and anterior approaches for proximal sciatic nerve (SN) block can be used in patients lying supine. We assume that the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve (PFCN) is simultaneously blocked mo...
Following the publication of high level evidence demonstrating that corticosteroid inject is not an effective treatment for lateral epicondylitis, a reduction in the rate of corticosteroid injection w...
Use of ultrasound to increase the percutaneous adsorption of drugs.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
