1. Ultrasound, CT, MRI, or PET-CT for staging and re-staging of adults with cutaneous melanoma. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Ultrasound, CT, MRI, or PET-CT for staging and re-staging of adults with cutaneous melanoma. Melanoma is one of the most aggressive forms of skin cancer, with the potential to metastasise to other parts of the body via the lymphatic system and the bloodstream. Melanoma accounts for a small percentage of skin cancer cases but is responsible for the majority of skin cancer deaths. Various imaging tests can be used with the aim of detecting metastatic spread of disease following a primary (...) diagnosis of melanoma (primary staging) or on clinical suspicion of disease recurrence (re-staging). Accurate staging is crucial to ensuring that patients are directed to the most appropriate and effective treatment at different points on the clinical pathway. Establishing the comparative accuracy of ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET)-CT imaging for detection of nodal or distant metastases, or both, is critical to understanding

2. In adults with mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are physiotherapy led exercises better than no treatment in improving pain and function?

In adults with mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are physiotherapy led exercises better than no treatment in improving pain and function? Getting Evidence into Clinical Practice: Musculoskeletal Research Facilitation Group (CAT Group) Date:10/05/2018 CAT Lead: Julie Shufflebotham. Date CAT completed: February 2018 Specific Question: In adults with mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are physiotherapy led exercises better than no treatment in improving pain and function (...) ? Clinical bottom line There is no evidence found that can answer this question. Why is this important? CTS is the commonest peripheral neuropathy and causes considerable disability with pain, decreased function and work absence. Although clinically treatment of patients with this condition was rare, it raised the question what is the best evidence based physiotherapy treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery Plus Intraoperative Corticosteroid Injection versus Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery Alone: A Double Blinded Clinical Trial. Background: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a prevalent disease with significant morbidity. The current treatments range from oral medication and local corticosteroid injection to surgical carpal tunnel release (CTR). In this study, we tried to assess the results of Carpal Tunnel Release surgery in combination with the anti-inflammatory effect (...) of local corticosteroid injection. Methods: 65 patients were enrolled by clinical and electrodiagnostic tests and randomly divided into two groups, 32 in group one which underwent surgery with Dexamethasone injection and 33 in group 2 which intervened with carpal tunnel release surgery alone. Data on Boston questionnaire of patients were conducted before and two weeks after surgery. Distal motor and sensory latencies of patients were recorded before and two months after surgery.
