CONCLUSION: The COVID-19 pandemic meant that hospitals and patients were hopeful to minimize the exposure to the wards, and minimize strain on the already taxed inpatient beds. With few positives during the COVID-19 crisis, the pandemic was the catalyst to speed up the outpatient arthroplasty programme that has resulted in our institution being more efficient, and with no increase in readmissions or early complications.

CONCLUSION: Lifetime ICURs for MIS procedures for DLS are similar to those for total joint replacement. Future research should adopt a societal perspective and potentially capture further economic benefits of MIS procedures.
MOTIVATION: Functional annotation is a common part of microRNA-related research, typically carried as pathway enrichment analysis of the selected microRNA targets. Here we propose miRAnno, a fast and easy-to-use web application for microRNA annotation.
This article describes the use of an infiltration between the popliteal artery and capsule of the knee joint (IPACK) to diagnose an entrapment neuropathy of the tibial nerve (TN) in a patient presenting with chronic neuropathic pain in the medial posterior compartment of the left knee, with a previous electromyography showing no evidence of tibial or common peroneal nerve neuropathy. After a positive sciatic nerve block, the patient was evaluated for a TN block, cancelled due to the presence of...
CONCLUSION: The economic burden of SCI is generally high and cost figures are broadly higher for developed countries. As studies were only available in few countries, the generalizability of the cost estimates to a regional or global level is only limited to countries with similar economic status and health systems. Further investigations with standardized methodologies are required to fill the knowledge gaps in the healthcare economics of SCI.
CONCLUSIONS: We recommend ORIF whenever an anatomic reduction is feasible. However, achievement and maintenance of anatomic reduction are a challenge in the elderly, specifically in those with low-energy fractures involving both columns, prompting consideration for alternative management strategies.
CONCLUSION: Incorporating the patient perspective into remission criteria should be further explored.
