Interventions for treating shoulder fractures in adults | Cochrane

Fracture of the top end of the upper arm bone (proximal humerus) is a common injury in older people. It is often called a shoulder fracture. The bone typically fractures (breaks) just below the shoulder, usually after a fall. Most of these fractures occur without breaking the skin lying over the fracture. The injured arm is often supported in a sling until the fracture heals sufficiently to allow shoulder movement. More severe (displaced) fractures may be treated surgically. This may involve fixing the fracture fragments together by various means. Alternatively, the top of the fractured bone may be replaced (half 'shoulder' replacement: hemiarthroplasty). More rarely, the whole joint, thus including the joint socket, is replaced (total 'shoulder' replacement). Physiotherapy is often used to help restore function.

Radiofrequency denervation for chronic low back pain | Cochrane

Background Low back pain is a widespread problem that has major social and economic consequences. In all, 85% to 90% of low back pain cases are classified as 'non-specific'. Most patients with low back pain are treated successfully in primary care, but approximately 10% to 15% develop chronic symptoms (lasting longer than three months). Chronic low back pain can come from any part of the back that has a nerve supply capable of transmitting pain signals. These sources include discs, vertebrae, sacroiliac joints, facet joints, muscles, ligaments and other structures. Pain specialists try to identify the source of low back pain by using nerve blocks. They numb individual spinal nerves with anaesthetic injections to see if this leads to improvement in back symptoms. With substantial pain relief, they attempt to eliminate pain for a longer time by heating the spinal nerves with radiofrequency waves to ensure that the pain stimulus cannot be passed. This invasive procedure is called radiofrequency denervation. At this time, the effectiveness of this approach has not been proven.

Reduction of the dislocated finger

It just looks painful when a patient dislocates their finger. Somehow, I’ve found that reducing that dislocation seems to generate more anxiety on behalf of the patient than the misaligned digit itself. It doesn’t have to be that way, and with good local anesthesia and technique it won’t. Therefore, I’d be delighted if you’d check out this brief video on the reduction of the dislocated finger, in this case the proximal interphalangeal joint.
