BACKGROUND: Spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is a rare but serious infection that develops in the epidural space anywhere along the spinal cord. Early diagnosis is imperative to prevent permanent neurological sequelae. SEA should be considered in patients with backache, fever, neurological deficits and/ or spinal tenderness. Although these are non-specific symptoms, delayed diagnosis increases the risk of development of sepsis, which may be life threatening, or result in varying degrees of permanent neurological impairment...

The performance of joint arthroplasty in an outpatient setting is expected to rise significantly over the coming decade, with predictions that greater than half of all primary joint arthroplasties will be performed in an outpatient setting by the year 2026. Financial pressures, bundled payment models, and improved understanding of patient recovery have led to discharging patients home the same day as the index procedure. Arthroplasty surgeons are starting to utilize ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to perform these outpatient arthroplasty procedures...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is an analgesic modality involving the insertion of a lead through an introducing needle followed by the delivery of electric current. This modality has been reported to treat chronic pain as well as postoperative pain following knee and foot surgery. However, it remains unknown if this analgesic technique may be used in ambulatory patients following upper extremity surgery. The purpose of this proof-of-concept study was to investigate various lead implantation locations and evaluate the feasibility of using percutaneous brachial plexus PNS to treat surgical pain following ambulatory rotator cuff repair in the immediate postoperative period...
