OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of precise rehabilitation therapy guided by three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) reconstruction technology in hip fracture patients through a retrospective cohort study. METHOD: Data were retrospectively collected from 60 patients aged over 60 who had undergone hip fracture surgery. They were divided into two groups based on their chosen rehabilitation method: a control group and a test group. The study collected demographic data, fracture characteristics, and quality of life indicators to assess the impact of rehabilitation on economic indicators and daily living activities (ADL)...

OBJECTIVES: Osteoarthritis (OA) has been the common cause to lead to chronic pain. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is effective in the treatment of chronic pain, but its analgesic mechanism is still unclear. This study observed the analgesic effects of tDCS in rats to explore the top-down analgesic modulation mechanism of tDCS. METHODS: Monosodium iodoacetate (MIA) was used to establish OA chronic pain model. After 21 days, the rats received tDCS for 14 consecutive days (20 min/day)...

This review aimed to validate the therapeutic potential of Bushen Tiansui decoction (BSTSD), a traditional Chinese formulation, in treating delayed union of fractures. Comprehensive database searches identified randomized controlled trials up to September 13, 2022, assessing BSTSD's efficacy in delayed fracture healing. Outcomes were bone metabolism indexes and Harris hip scores. Quality and risk assessments were conducted using the Cochrane Collaboration's tools. Data were analyzed using RevMan software, with sensitivity analysis through Stata...

The most common tumours in the brachial plexus are benign schwannomas, followed by neurofibromas and malignancies, originating from the peripheral nerve sheath. The clinical manifestations of brachial plexus tumours are variable according to their location, extension, neurological elements involved and pathology. Brachial plexus tumours are rare in the upper extremity, and axillary schwannoma is uncommon. This case reports a 59-year-old woman with a tumour in her left axilla for two years, gradually enlarging with numbness in her left little finger...
