Potential treatment for osteonecrosis identifiedA potential new treatment for death of bone tissue or osteonecrosis has been identified by researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. This form of treatment is in context to individuals who are treated with steroids for different common medical disorders.

Presently, there are no treatment options for people affected with this debilitating disease.

The research was published in the April 27 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Lack of standardized approach for back painResearchers from the University of California at San Diego have reported that there are no standardized practices when it comes to administration of an epidural steroid injection for back pain. This finding was reported at the American Academy of Pain Medicine’s 25th Annual Meeting.

The involved researchers examined many factors including which steroids were administered, the amount of steroids used, and whether or not a local anesthetic was mixed with the steroids.

Yogesh Patel, MD, and his colleagues at UCSD, identified and surveyed attending pain physicians at interventional pain programs in the US in regard to the ESI protocols for comparing presently taught techniques.

Epidural steroid injections (ESI) are minimally invasive procedures that are used for treating pain in the arms, back, neck, and legs caused by inflamed nerves.

Yogesh Patel, MD, and his colleagues at UCSD, said that technique variations can have an effect as to why some patients fare better from ESI than others.

No Standardized approach for back pain with epidural steroid injectionsResearchers from University of California at San Diego have reported at the American Academy of Pain Medicine’s 25th Annual Meeting that there is a lack of standardized practices existing for administering an epidural steroid injection for back pain.

The researchers considered many factors such as: which steroids were administered, whether or not a local anesthetic was mixed with the steroid, and the amount of steroid used.

Yogesh Patel, MD, and his colleagues at UCSD, remarked that these technique variations can possible give an insight as to how and why some patients get better results from ESI than others and suggested that this fact needs to be explored further.
