  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    BACKGROUND: Endoscopic spine surgery has become increasingly popular. However, no study has researched the predictive factors for different outcomes. This study is the first to evaluate the outcome predictors of the transforaminal endoscopic spine system (TESSYS) technique for lumbar disk herniation (LDH).[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Early signs may include pseudohypertrophy (enlargement of calf muscles), low endurance, and difficulties in standing unaided or inability to ascend staircases.[disabled-world.com] Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[orpha.net] There is pseudohypertrophy of tongue (macroglossia in 30% cases) and calf muscles (60% cases).[symptoma.com]
