Press Release: Minimally Invasive Approach Diminishes the Need for Arm Pump Surgery
While most patients seek treatment for CECS and PAES in their calves, the condition can occur in the forearm as well. Forearm exertional compartment syndrome, otherwise known as “arm pump”, is a common problem in athletes that ride or race motorcycles. That said, it can occur in others who do not ride. Arm pump is when the intensity of tightness and pressure increases in the forearm with exercise. It can impede the ability to grip handlebars and remain competitive. The only remedy is to relax and back off activity. “Arm pump is an inflow/outflow problem of blood in the forearm muscles. The forearms are made up of several groups of muscles responsible for the gripping motion of the finger and hands. The forearm muscles are arranged in groups separated by a tight layer called “fascia”. As pressure builds, the muscles press against the fascia causing pain and pressure,” Dirt Bike Rider Magazine. “Arm pump is caused by restriction of blood leaving the forearm. As the forearm muscles contract, they become enlarged and engorged. The contracting muscles compress the veins causing pressure in the muscles,” reports Dr. McGinley. Most riders experience arm pump at some point. Only when symptoms are severe does it require treatment. Dr. McGinley developed a patent procedure called the MVP Treatment to address arm pump with a minimally invasive procedure. Just like in the calves, Dr. McGinley uses advanced MRI, ultrasound and CT imaging to identify the exact site of compression. He then injects botulinum toxin (commonly known as BOTOX) into a small segment of muscle that is compressing blood flow. The muscle is locally paralyzed allowing blood flow to resume normally. “MVP Treatment is much less invasive than traditional surgical remedies, has a much shorter recovery time and less associated risk,” Motocross Action Magazine. The patient is able to walk out of the office immediately after the procedure is completed. You can learn more about the MVP treatment in this podcast with Enduro Racer - James Stearns.
Student Presentation: Sequential Intrarticular Corticosteroid And Hyaluronic Acid Provides Significant Knee Osteoarthritis Symptom Improvement
Study by Bret Andrew:
"Pain related to knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a common and growing presentation to medical facilities. Intraarticular hyaluronic acid (HA) injections along with intraarticular corticosteroid injections represents a minimally invasive and cost-effective treatment option. In rare cases, the use of hyaluronic acid has resulted in pseudo sepsis. Our study evaluated the efficacy of combined corticosteroid and HA injection in treatment of pain associated with knee OA. In addition, we hypothesize that corticosteroid preceding HA injections can reduce the incidence of pseudo sepsis."
This was presented at the WWAMI Research Exposition at the Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie, WY on November 8, 2021. Mr. Andrew won the first prize award: "American College of Physicians-Certificate of merit in recognition of 1st place ACP Wyoming Chapter Medical Student Poster Competition". Congratulations!
Student Presentation: Intradiscal BMAC Injections Reduce Pain for Degenerative Disc Disease
Study by Nathan Davies:
"Low back pain, often caused by degenerative disc disease (DDD), is one of the most common reasons for primary care and orthopedic office visits. Current treatment options center around reducing inflammation and fail to address the underlying pathology. Concentrated bone marrow aspirate (BMAC) injections, along with conservative management, represent a cost-effective and minimally invasive treatment option that could postpone further disc degeneration. Our hypothesis is that BMAC injections, along with conservative care, can provide short and long term pain reduction in patients with DDD."
This was presented at The Idaho WWAMI Research Exposition at the WWAMI Medical Education Building in Moscow, ID on October 29, 2021. Mr. Davies was awarded honorable mention for the clinical outcomes category. Congratulations!
Student Presentation: Conservative Management of Knee Osteoarthritis Utilizing Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate
Study by Braeden Leiby:
"Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), along with conservative patient management, offers a minimally invasive option in treating chronic pain from knee osteoarthritis. Knee osteoarthritis affects35% of adults aged 65 years and older. BMAC has been shown to decrease inflammation and improve cartilage signal on MRI. We hypothesize BMAC injections, along with conservative care, will provide short- and long-term relief of pain associated with knee osteoarthritis."
This was presented at The Idaho WWAMI Research Exposition at the WWAMI Medical Education Building in Moscow, ID on October 29, 2021. Mr. Leiby won the Outstanding Clinical Outcomes Based Research Award. Congratulations!
Student Presentation: Carpal Tunnel Release with Ultrasound Guidance
Study by Grace Nicholas.
"Several studies have documented the potential advantages of CTR-US, but few have reported clinical results of CTR-US using local anesthesia (WALANT) and objectively documented post-operative changes using MRI. The primary purpose of this study was to report intermediate-term outcomes (3-6 months) following CTR-US using WALANT, including a subset of patients with pre- and post-CTR MRI scans."
This was presented at the WWAMI Research Exposition at the Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie, WY on November 8, 2021.
