Corticosteroid Injection Exhibits Symptomatic Improvement In Cts Patients With Negative Emgs, Brooke G. Garnica, Aaron R. Prater, Elizabeth A. Washnock-Schmid, Alaa Hazime, Dr. Charles S. Day

Medical Student Research Symposium

Introduction

While corticosteroid injections for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are effective in patients with mild EMGs, no literature has examined the effectiveness of injections in patients with negative EMGs. We hypothesized that patients with negative EMGs will have minimal symptomatic and functional improvement.

Methods

The Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BCTQ) was administered to patients clinically diagnosed with CTS and a negative or mild EMG prior to corticosteroid injection. The BCTQ comprises functional (FSS) and symptom status (SSS) questions. The patient was re-evaluated at 2-weeks, 1-, 3-, and 6-months post-injection. Data were analyzed via one-way ANOVA tests. A post-hoc Benjamini-Hochberg FDR ...

The Use Of Computerized Tomography Scans In Elective Knee And Hip Arthroplasty-What Do They Tell Us And At What Risk?, Taylor D'Amore, Gregg R Klein, Jess H. Lonner

Rothman Institute Faculty Papers

The average background radiation exposure in the United States has nearly doubled over the previous quarter century, with almost all the increase derived from medical imaging. Nearly 2% of all cancers in the United States may be attributable to radiation from computerized tomography (CT) scans. Given the nondiagnostic nature of CT scans that are used in elective knee and hip arthroplasty today, special consideration should be given to the inherent risk of radiation exposure with routine use of this technology. Methods to decrease radiation exposure including modulating the settings of the CT machine and using alternative non-CT-based systems can decrease ...

Acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries occur with a traumatic load to the lateral aspect of the shoulder and account for 9% of all shoulder girdle injuries. Rockwood classified AC joint injuries as type I though type VI, based on severity of injury, radiographic findings, and reducibility of the AC joint. Type I and II injuries are typically managed nonoperatively, whereas type IV, V, and VI are managed operatively to address the significant soft tissue disruption, persistent AC joint instability, and apical shoulder deformation. Treatment of type III injuries remain controversial. Several techniques have been described to treat AC joint injuries with ...
