OBJECTIVE To determine whether the length of sternum is correlated with Scheuermann disease pathogenesis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Many theories have been proposed for the etiology of(More)
Subcutaneous targeted neuromodulation has been used successfully in chronic neuropathic pain. A 26 year-old patient with severe postthoracotomy pain and ipsilateral "wing scapula" due to intraoperative injury of the long thoracic nerve, is reported. Application of targeted neuromodulation resulted in immediate pain relief and marked improvement of shoulder(More)
