Novel approach to modeling high-frequency activity data to assess therapeutic effects of analgesics in chronic pain conditions


By: Z. Xu n, E. Laber n, A. Staicu n & B. Lascelles n

MeSH headings : Analgesics / therapeutic use; Animals; Cat Diseases / drug therapy; Cats; Chronic Pain / drug therapy; Chronic Pain / veterinary; Cross-Over Studies; Double-Blind Method; Markov Chains; Models, Theoretical; Placebos; Poisson Distribution
TL;DR: A zero inflated Poisson hidden semi-Markov model is used to characterize activity patterns and derive estimators of the treatment effect in terms of changes in activity levels or frequency of activity type using data from a naturally occurring feline OA-associated pain model.

When Is a Fracture Not "Fresh"? Aligning Reimbursement With Patient Outcome After Treatment With Low-Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound


By: R. Zura*, Z. Xu n, G. Della Rocca*, S. Mehta* & R. Steen*

author keywords: nonunion; low-intensity pulsed ultrasound
MeSH headings : Adult; Female; Fracture Healing / radiation effects; Fractures, Bone / complications; Fractures, Bone / physiopathology; Fractures, Bone / therapy; Fractures, Ununited / etiology; Fractures, Ununited / prevention & control; Humans; Male; Middle Aged; Registries; Retrospective Studies; Treatment Outcome; Ultrasonic Therapy / methods; Ultrasonic Waves
TL;DR: The results suggest that fractures of the metatarsal, femur, humerus, ankle, and radius respond to LIPUS treatment, as if they were still fresh at least 6 weeks longer than the eligibility allowed under current coverage policies. (via Semantic Scholar)

Heal rate of metatarsal fractures: A propensity-matching study of patients treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) vs. surgical and other treatments


By: P. Nolte*, R. Anderson*, E. Strauss*, Z. Wang n, L. Hu n, Z. Xu n, R. Steen*

author keywords: Jones fracture; Open fracture; Tobacco smoking; Obesity
MeSH headings : Adult; Female; Fracture Fixation, Internal; Fracture Healing / physiology; Fractures, Bone / diagnostic imaging; Fractures, Bone / pathology; Fractures, Bone / therapy; Humans; Male; Metatarsal Bones / diagnostic imaging; Metatarsal Bones / injuries; Metatarsal Bones / pathology; Propensity Score; Retrospective Studies; Treatment Outcome; Ultrasonic Therapy
TL;DR: It is proposed that metatarsal fractures treated conservatively with non-invasive low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) obtain heal rates comparable to current surgical techniques, suggesting that these variables were perceived as nonunion risk factors by prescribing physicians.
