Fluoroscopy-guided Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection for Low Back Pain in a Patient with Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.179
Pages: 
432–4

Background: Osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as ‘brittle bone disease’, is a genetic connective tissue disease. It is characterized by bone fragility and osteopenia (low bone density). In this case, a 57-year old female presented to the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI), Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic with left low back pain rated 6/10 on the numeric rating scale (NRS). Clinically, the patient had sacroiliac joint mediated pain, although X-rays did not show the sacroiliac joint changes.

Extravasation Injuries

Issue: 
Pages: 
40–7
Synopsis: 
Most extravenous leaks have relatively minor sequelae but severe tissue injuries have been reported. Extravasation may be unavoidable, but if appropriate measures are implemented promptly, morbidity can be greatly reduced. All medical and nursing personnel must be familiar with the protocols for treating the extravasation of drugs which have the potential for tissue damage.
ABSTRACT
 
Objectives: To evaluate the time and type of treatment following extravasation from intravenous infusion and the sequelae of the injuries.

Femoral Lengthening using the Ilizarov Technique

Issue: 
Pages: 
420–4
Synopsis: 
Limb length discrepancies in excess of 5 centimetres can be successfully treated using the llizarov method. This technique, however, is challenging for patients, their families and the surgeon.

ABSTRACT

The Ilizarov method allows the surgeon to perform extended lengthening of both congenital and acquired short limbs. The technique can be difficult, time consuming and is associated with many complications. Generally, the number of complications and failures of lengthenings increases in proportion to the length of the distraction and the severity of the preoperative problems. The rate of major complications decreases substantially as the experience of the surgeon increases.
