Localisation rapide et simple des points trigger avec le TP-TOOL – Le Dr Stephan Swart partage son expérience

TP-TOOL

En complément d’une thérapie conventionnelle adéquate, une localisation rapide, précise et simple des altérations pathologiques dans les tissus à examiner (tissu conjonctif, fascias, tendons, muscles, par exemple) est d’une grande importance pour traiter les affections orthopédiques et les maladies liées à la pratique sportive au quotidien. Dans ces tissus, les points et les régions à identifier se caractérisent notamment par une densité accrue, un volume plus important et une sensibilité plus élevée à la pression. Les méthodes de localisation existantes, telles que la palpation manuelle ou l’élastographie, sont non seulement longues et douloureuses, mais elles sont aussi peu répandues et nécessitent un équipement coûteux.

Ermis O. et al., 2020: Definition, treatment and outcome of residual fragments in staghorn stones

Abstract

Technological advances in minimally invasive treatment of stone disease and its integration with concomitant clinical practice are amongst the most important achievements in urology. Despite the wealth of information accumulated over the years and the richness of existing literature, the knowledge about the definition, treatment and outcomes of residual stone fragments after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is still insufficient. Due to the high stone load a lot of patients with staghorn stones have residual fragments (RFs) after treatment with PNL, which depends on the size of tract, definition of stone free rate (SFR), timing of evaluation and the imaging used. No consensus exists on the imaging modality or their timing in the evaluation of possible RFs. The treatment of residual stones is apparently different depending on the facilities of the department and the preference of the surgeon, which includes active surveillance, shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) or a second look PNL.

Salvi M. et al., 2020: Active treatment of renal stones in Pelvic Ectopic Kidney: systematic review of literature

Abstract

Purpose: To identify the role of Doppler US (DUS) in the prediction of factors affecting stone-clearance post-SWL for ureteral stones in addition to its role in prediction of pretreatment stone impaction.

Methods: We prospectively included patients with ureteric stone for SWL between October 2018 and September 2019. Patient's demographics were collected. Using DUS, resistive index (RI), Δ RI, and ureteric jets were evaluated in both kidneys. Also, stone site, volume, density, skin to stone distance, degree of hydronephrosis, ureteral wall thickness (UWT) were evaluated by NCCT. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed to identify factors that contribute to treatment success. Correlation between ipsilateral RI with other radiological findings predicting stone impaction was done.

Results: A total of 93 patients were finally included (61 males and 32 females). The mean age was 31.4 ± 7.7 years. The success rate (absence of significant residuals post 1 month by NCCT) was 51.6%. In multivariate analysis, the presence of ureteric jet, ipsilateral lower RI, and ipsilateral lower UWT were independent factors for treatment success (P = 0.0001, 0.002, and 0.03, respectively). Also, ipsilateral absence of ureteric jet, increased hydronephrosis, and increased UWT were correlated with higher ipsilateral RI in prediction of stone impaction. Ipsilateral higher RI was found to achieve higher accuracy in stone impaction prediction (PPV of 94.8%).

Conclusion: Pretreatment DUS is a useful, non-invasive with a less irradiative tool for prediction of stone impaction and stone-free rate post-SWL for ureteric stones.

In our next webinar Prof. Dr Matthias Beck will talk about »The Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome«. The Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) is related to the tendinopathy (tendinosis, partial- and full-thickness tears) of the muscles which inserts at the greater trochanter of the femur. In addition to these degenerative changes in the tendons inflammation of the synovial bursae could be a reason for the pain in the gluteal area which is elicited by rotational hip movements and lateral position.

Parkinson's disease: World's first clinical trial for shock wave treatment

2020-09-30_news_TPS-enables-targeted-stimulation-of-cerebral-region

In 2019 the NEUROLITH® shock wave system was successfully introduced to the market. The Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) device, which was developed by STORZ MEDICAL in Switzerland, is the only medical device marketed in Europe that is approved in the European Union for the treatment of the central nervous system of patients with Alzheimer's disease. The effect of TPS® is now being investigated in another neurological condition: In September 2020, the world's first clinical study for the treatment of Parkinson's patients with shock wave therapy using real-time documentation started at MedUni Vienna (Department of Neurology) in Austria under the direction of Professor Roland Beisteiner.
