To delineate the underlying mechanisms that contribute to chronic low back pain, by extending our knowledge on structural characteristics of the lumbar multifidus muscle using ultrasound m...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the validity and reliability of measurement for cervical multifidus using ultrasonography, and to investigate cervical multifidus muscle functio...
Segmental stabilization exercise has been shown to be effective in the rehabilitation of low back pain (LBP). Due to the isometric nature of segmental stabilization exercise, manual thera...
To evaluate and compare the effectiveness of 3 different injection treatments on multifidus atrophy and lower back pain.
The purpose of this study is to compare combined tactile stimulation and verbal instruction to verbal instruction only on lumbar multifidus muscle activation in asymptomatic healthy adults...
Histological and histochemical analyses of muscle samples were used to determine the intensity of paraspinal muscle injury during open (OPEN) and minimally invasive (MIS) procedures due to spinal trau...
Surgery of biliary malignant tumors is highly related to the liver and pancreas. The "Liver and pancreas oriented" characteristics are unavoidable challenges when formulating surgical strategies. In t...
Introduction of the fiberoptic light-source and CCD chip camera resulted in the rapid growth of minimally invasive surgical procedures. In surgical oncology, the change came slowly owing to concerns a...
Nonspecific low back pain (NSLBP) is a common problem that may have an effect on the level of functional ability. Imaging techniques indicated the degeneration of multifidus muscles in patients with l...
Reduced lumbar multifidus (LM) muscle contraction has been observed in patients with low back pain (LBP). Clinicians often use various strategies to ensure LM activation, including tactile feedback an...
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
A condition of persistent pain and discomfort in the BACK and the LEG following lumbar surgery, often seen in patients enrolled in pain centers.
