Osteomyelitis has many forms of presentation in the pediatric age group. From neonatal osteomyelitis, with a paucity of clinical symptoms and signs, to the more typical acute hematogenous form or even the subacute or chronic presentations, a high index of suspicion is needed to institute appropriate investigations and treatment.
It has been proposed that aging occurs because of a failure of the pineal gland to produce melatonin from serotonin each day beginning at sunset and throughout the night. This lack leads to a nighttime deficiency of melatonin both absolutely and also relatively to serotonin. As melatonin has wide-spread integrative and regenerative effects, its lack may… (More)
The hypothesis presented in this paper defines aging as a pathological process originating in the pineal gland. This results in a diminished output of melatonin, along with a diminished melatonin to serotonin ratio, leading to a decline in adaptive processes and a predictable syndrome manifested by the "diseases of the aged" (DOA) and subsequent death of… (More)
We report a case of fatal pulmonary embolus after arthroscopy of the knee to heighten awareness of this potentially fatal complication. A literature search was conducted to review the reported complications of knee arthroscopy.
External venous compression can be a cause of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This is an unusual case of acetabular component failure and resultant polyethylene and titanium alloy wear debris that presented as a pelvic mass and resulted in iliac vein compression and subsequent DVT.
Local anesthetics or narcotic analgesics introduced into surgical wounds have been noted to provide pain relief. These agents are typically infused into the postoperative joint or wound using a standard beveled needle or by pressing the syringe hub against the incision without a needle. We present an alternative method of administering these agents to… (More)
