no effect on pain or function (Chou, 2016). A randomized trial of 269 adults with radicular pain found that patients with acute radiculopathy from a herniated lumbar disk who received a short course of oral steroids had modest improvement in function with no improvement in pain and no reduction in surgery incidence (Goldberg, 2015). Corticosteroids have side effects that patients need to be aware of, including osteonecrosis, mood changes, anxiety, blurred vision, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs (...) in glucose control. It is now considered standard of care to perform the injections under image guidance and with contrast in order to deliver the injectate as close to the disc herniation, area of stenosis or nerve root impingement as determined by advanced imaging. There are three approaches to the epidural space: interlaminar, transforaminal and caudal (McLain, 2005; Cannon, 2000). The different approaches allow the treatment to be tailored to the needs of the individual. With each of the three

In addition, exploration and orchidopexy aim to relocate viable testicular tissue outside of the abdomen in a position amenable to regular self-exam later in life, which aids in early diagnosis of testicular cancer.

pain” will not be added because it appeared to have inconsistent significations in the literature. Low back pain can be associated with leg pain originating from nerve root compression and associated inflammation (or sometimes inflammation alone). It is called ‘radicular pain’. The compression can result from a disc herniation or from degenerative stenosis of the spinal canal or intervertebral foramen. In a significant subset of patients, the radicular pain is dominant over the back pain and some (...) do not have back pain at all. Radicular pain should be differentiated from other causes of leg pain, such as coxarthrosis, gonarthrosis or gluteal tendinopathies. Typical for radicular pain is that the pain: • Usually follows one (or several) dermatome patterns; • Usually can be provoked: in disc herniation patients by flexion (Valsalva-manoeuvers, straight leg raising test, bending or sitting); in stenosis patients by extension (standing, walking) 14 Low back pain and radicular pain: development

“It has been conventionally asserted that an LP in the presence of increased ICP may be harmful or fatal to the patient. Up to 30% of patients with bacterial meningitis will herniate even if they do not have an LP , suggesting that the herniations observed in some studies are the result of the underlying disease process and not the test. “ You should also consider getting an MRI to evaluate for cases of viral HSV encephalitis. In fact…”In subtle cases, LP can create meningeal enhancement (...) suggested that a normal CT scan does not always mean that performance of an LP is safe and that certain clinical signs of impending herniation (ie, deteriorating level of consciousness, particularly a Glasgow coma scale <11; brainstem signs including pupillary changes, posturing, or irregular respirations; or a very recent seizure) may be predictive of patients in whom an LP should be delayed.” [12] What are indications for LP in CNS infection?
