Contralateral Humerus Avascular Necrosis Diagnosed Immediately After Radiotherapy in a Patient with Breast Cancer

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.366

ABSTRACT

Radiotherapy (RT) is an important component of treatment for malignant tumors, and avascular necrosis (AVN), which is often associated with high morbidity and disability, frequently accompanies this type of therapy. It generally develops in the same extremity with the treated region and may continue long after the treatment is completed. Early identification of AVN has the potential to reduce morbidity and improve the patient's quality of life.

A Case of Cervical Radiculopathy Related to Cervical Manual Therapy Course

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.535

ABSTRACT

Neck pain is a common problem associated with considerable comorbidities, disability, and cost to society. Spinal manual therapy is commonly used to treat this condition, and some countries recommend it as a treatment option in their clinical guidelines since it is generally believed to be a safe and effective method for physicians to use to relieve neck pain. However, the non-invasive and frequently medication-free manipulation maneuvers can potentially lead to severe adverse effects.
