OBJECTIVE To explore the effectiveness of suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) at different timing after administration compared with physical therapy, placebo, and intra-articular injections in patients with chronic shoulder pain. DATA SOURCE Two electronic data sources, PubMed and Scopus, were mainly searched from the earliest record to September 2015. (More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the motor nerve conduction of the sciatic nerve by a magnetic stimulation method in patients with piriformis syndrome. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING An electrodiagnostic laboratory in a university hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-three patients with piriformis syndrome and 15 healthy persons for control. INTERVENTIONS Not(More)
BACKGROUND Sarcopenia, a gradual loss of muscle mass and function, has been associated with poor health outcomes. Its correlation with another age-related degenerative process, impaired cognition, remains uncertain. This meta-analysis aimed to determine whether there is an association between sarcopenia and cognitive impairment. METHODS PubMed and Scopus(More)
Transverse myelitis is a rare inflammatory myelopathy characterized by loss of motor and sensory function below the affected level of the spinal cord, and causes neurogenic bowel and bladder. Occasionally, it also causes neuropathic pain with spasticity. Traditional therapies for neuropathic pain are multiple, including multimodal analgesic regimens,(More)
Many people continue suffering from myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) defined as a regional pain syndrome characterized by muscle pain caused by myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) clinically. Muscle spasm and block of blood circulation can be noticed in the taut bands. In the MTrP region, nociceptors can be sensitized by the peripheral inflammatory factors and(More)
In this study, we demonstrate a photovoltachromic cell (PVCC) which is a solar cell and able to take solar energy to stimulate chromic behavior with the characteristic of tunable transmittance. The cell is composed of a patterned WO(3)/Pt electrochromic electrode and a dye-sensitized TiO(2) nanoparticle photoanode. Compared to reported photoelectrochromic(More)
In this work, a tungsten oxide (WO(x)) film is prepared using a thiourea-assisted solution process. We demonstrate a device composed of fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO)-glass/WO(x)/electrolyte/indium-tin oxide (ITO)-glass stacking electrochromic (EC) structure and Al electrodes that are locally patterned and interposed between the WO(x) film and electrolyte,(More)
Bicipital peritendinous effusion (BPE) is the most common biceps tendon abnormality and can be related to various shoulder ultrasonographic findings. Since the association of BPE with subacromial impingement is unclear, our study aimed to explore its association with the dynamic subacromial impingement test during ultrasound (US) imaging. We included 337(More)
