Shoulder replacement

first_imgDefinitionShoulder replacement is surgery to replace the bones of the shoulder joint with artificial joint parts.Alternative NamesTotal shoulder arthroplasty; Endoprosthetic shoulder replacement; Partial shoulder replacement; Partial shoulder arthroplasty; Replacement – shoulder; Arthroplasty – shoulderDescriptionYou will receive anesthesia before this surgery. Two types of anesthesia can be used:General anesthesia, which means you will be unconscious and unable to feel pain.Regional anesthesia to numb your arm and shoulder area so that you do not feel any pain in this area. If you receive regional anesthesia, you will also be given medicine to help you relax during the operation.The shoulder is a ball and socket joint. The round end of the arm bone fits into the opening at the end of the shoulder blade, called the socket. This type of joint allows you to move your arm in most directions.For total shoulder replacement, the round end of your arm bone will be replaced with an artificial stem that has a rounded metal head. The socketpart (glenoid) of your shoulder blade will be replaced with a smooth plastic shell (lining) that will be held in place with a special cement. If only 1 of these 2 bones needs to be replaced, the surgery is called a partial shoulder replacement, or a hemiarthroplasty.For shoulder joint replacement, your surgeon will make an incision (cut) over your shoulder joint to open up the area. Then your surgeon will:Remove the head (top) of your upper arm bone (humerus)Cement the new metal head and stem into placeSmooth the surface of the old socket and cement the new one in placeClose your incision with staples or suturesPlace a dressing (bandage) over your woundYour surgeon may place atube in this area todrain fluid that may build up in the joint. The drain will be removed when you no longer need it.advertisementThis surgery usually takes 1 – 3 hours.Why the Procedure Is PerformedShoulder replacement surgery is usually done when you have severe pain in the shoulder area, which limits your ability to move your arm.

It will be around 4 – 6 months of recovery.Follow any instructions you are given about how to care for your shoulder at home. This includes activities that you should not do.You will be given instructions on shoulder exercises to do at home. Follow these instructions exactly. Doing the exercises in a wrong way can injure your new shoulder.Outlook (Prognosis)advertisementShoulder replacement surgery relieves pain and stiffness for most people. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities without much problem. Many people are able to return to sports such as golf, swimming, gardening, bowling, and others.Your new shoulder joint will last longer if less stress is placed on it. With normal use,a new shoulder joint canlast for at least 10 years.ReferencesAzar FM, Calandruccio JH. Arthroplasty of the shoulder and elbow. In: Canale ST, Beatty JH, eds.

Curry hits unbelievable backwards half-court shot at Warriors practice

first_imgAdvertisementStephen Curry has dazzled his way through NBA courts in recent years with his shooting and ball-handling skills, but he still continues to wow us. During the Warriors’ open practice on Sunday, the point guard added to his highlight reel.He made a backward half-court shot, which amazed his teammates and the fans alike.Curry was initially fooling around at halfcourt, and he just nonchalantly tossed the ball behind his back. Incredibly, it went in, without even touching the rim. Coach Steve Kerr, who had started to address the Warriors fans who had gathered in the Oracle Arena, was overshadowed by Curry’s shot.Best shooter of all-time and it’s not even close. pic.twitter.com/PoGXNaQY8C— Warriors on NBCS (@NBCSWarriors) October 7, 2018 Steph has consistently conjured up amazing long-range shots on the floor, and he has created a different marker altogether for shooting exploits. He has truly changed the mindset regarding three-point shooting which has changed the way the game is played currently.Will Curry add this shot to his arsenal for the upcoming season? You wouldn’t bet against the man who is arguably the best shooter the league has seen.The Warriors will continue their preseason against the Lakers tomorrow after they lost the last game against the Phoenix Suns.Advertisementlast_img read more

Chelsea attackers revelling under Sarri-ball – Pedro

first_imgChelsea’s attacking players are revelling under Maurizio Sarri’s attacking philosophy, according to Pedro.The Italian has wasted little time imprinting his style on the Blues since taking over from Antonio Conte in July.They are unbeaten in 18 games across all competitions under the 59-year-old and sit third in the Premier League table, four points behind leaders Manchester City. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Central to their success has been a more aggressive approach, which Pedro – who has scored four times this season – believes is getting the best out of the club’s forwards.”The style is very good for attacking players and I’m enjoying it a lot,” he told the club’s official website.”We’re moving the ball, pressing very high and when we recover the ball we move very quickly towards goal.”It’s very good for me and the other players.”It’s a different style and a different idea. With Maurizio it’s more attacking.”I prefer this way because for a forward it’s important to be close to the box to try and score.”Chelsea received a boost on Friday when influential midfielder N’Golo Kante signed a new five-year deal with the club, much to the delight of Pedro.”I’m really happy to play with him and for this news because he’s a fantastic player,” he added.”He runs a lot during training and in the game, recovering a lot of balls.”He’s also a clever player on the pitch. He’s always in a good position to give balance to the team so he’s very important here.

David Warner to resume batting in four weeks, says Cricket Australia

first_imgDavid Warner underwent a sugery to fix his troublesome elbow on Tuesday and the Australian cricketer will begin rehabilitation. Cricket Australia (CA) revealed that Warner can “resume batting” in almost a month’s time.David Warner had to cut short his stint at the Bangladesh Premier League after the injury and returned home for treatment. Warner had complained of an elbow pain but played two more matches for his BPL team Sylhet Sixers.”David Warner underwent surgery yesterday to remove a bone spur and loose bone in his elbow that was causing an inflamed joint,” a CA spokesman said.”David will undergo rehabilitation in which we expect him to be able to begin moving his arm by the end of the week, and within 3-4 weeks resume batting, with his return to playing to be determined soon after that.”Warner is currently serving the suspension period for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in March last year.A few days ago, Warner’s suspended partner Steve Smith also underwent an elbow surgery but the former’s injury is not expected to be as serious as Smith’s.For Steve Smith, however, the lay off is expected to be longer. Smith will be wearing an arm brace for six weeks before continuing his rehabilitation. The length of the lay off threatens to disrupt Smith’s preparations for the World Cup in England later this year.Both Warner and Smith carried small niggles into the Bangladesh Premier League and then reporting pain. They returned home within a week of each other.advertisementThe pair’s 12-month bans for their involvement in the Cape Town ball-tampering incident ends on March 28 and there had been some hope they could return in a one-day series against Pakistan in the UAE.While Smith would be in a race against time to play in that series and the early stages of the Indian Premier League, Warner will likely be fit in time to be available for selection.Warner scored 61 not out, 63 and 19 in his last three innings at the T20 tournament in Bangladesh.Australia are expected to play five one-day internationals against Pakistan in the UAE, with the final two matches of that series believed to be after the bans on Smith and Warner have expired. But the fixtures for that tour are yet to be confirmed by the Pakistan Cricket Board.last_img read more

‘It’s time to say goodbye’: Lindsey Vonn hints at immediate retirement

first_imgVonn was in contention for a podium spot at Cortina D’Ampezzo until a slight bobble bounced her slightly off track. Then she clipped a gate and couldn’t apply pressure on her right leg to force her way back onto the racing line, prompting her to miss the next gate. With that, Vonn stood up out of her tuck, hung her head and skied diagonally off the course.“I’ve had four surgeries on my right knee. I’ve got no LCL [lateral collateral ligament] on my left knee. I’ve got two braces on. There’s only so much I can handle and I might have reached my maximum,” Vonn said. “I’m not sure. I’ve got to take a couple days’ time and really think about things.”Vonn was planning on retiring in December. She returned this weekend from her latest injury to her left knee but her best result in three races was ninth in Saturday’s downhill. Vonn needs five more wins to break the all-time World Cup record of 86 victories held by Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark but that seems like the last thing on her mind now. news Skiing Since you’re here… Lindsey Vonn misses gold but remains the most human of champions Read more Mikaela Shiffrin breaks World Cup record with 36th slalom triumph “I really don’t know what to think at this point,” she said. “Definitely isn’t the way I had hoped that things would go. I’ve been able to fight through a lot of injuries in my career but I think my injuries might get the best of me at this point.”Mikaela Shiffrin, who has replaced Vonn as the top US skier and who is on course for a third straight overall World Cup title, earned her first win in Cortina on Sunday. “When I was younger she was someone I looked up to like crazy,” Shiffrin said of Vonn. “I was doing book reports on her. I was one of those fans.” Lindsey Vonn may have competed in her last ski race. After failing to finish a World Cup super-G on Sunday as she battles pain in both of her knees, Vonn said immediate retirement “is a possibility.”The 34-year-old quickly clarified her comments by adding: “But I’m emotional right now. I have to really think clearly about that. It’s not a decision I make lightly or quickly.” She was more decisive when interviewed by Swiss TV, saying “now it’s time to listen to my body and it’s time to say goodbye.” Read more Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Share on Twittercenter_img … we have a small favour to ask.

UN agency urges investment in agriculture to feed growing world population

With the world population expected to balloon by one-third to 9.1 billion people, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) underscored the importance of using scarce natural resources more efficiently and investing in agriculture to combat a deepening hunger and poverty crisis.The FAO is slated to organize a high-level expert forum next month in Rome to explore strategies on “How to Feed the World in 2050,” which is aimed at preparing the ground work for the World Summit on Food Security in November. “FAO is cautiously optimistic about the world’s potential to feed itself by 2050,” said the Rome-based agency’s Assistant Director-General Hafez Ghanem, spotlighting several significant challenges to achieving the goal.Global projections show that in addition to large-scale investments in agriculture, further significant outlays will be needed to improve access to food to avoid some 370 million people – 5 per cent of the global population – remaining malnourished in 40 years from now.FAO highlighted the challenge of the expanding global population, with sub-Saharan Africa expected to grow by 108 per cent, or 910 million people, by 2050.Global population growth, nearly all of which will occur in developing countries and urban areas, and rising incomes will increase the demand for cereals by almost 50 per cent to 3 billion tons and meat production by over 200 million tons to 470 million tons, according to FAO. The FAO paper also pointed to the need to increase the amount of arable land to around 120 million hectares in developing countries, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, while agricultural land in developed nations is expected to decline by 50 million hectares.Globally, there are still sufficient land resources available to feed the future population, said FAO. However, the agency cautioned that much of the potential land is suitable for growing only a few crops, not necessarily the crops with highest demand and it is concentrated in a few countries. FAO called for greater efforts to speed up progress towards reducing and finally eliminating the number of hungry and poor people around the world, urging investment in primary agriculture as a top priority since agriculture not only produces food but also generates income and supports rural livelihoods. Poverty reduction also requires investments in rural infrastructure – roads, ports, power, storage and irrigation systems – in institutions, research and extension services, land titles and rights, risk management, veterinary and food safety control systems; and non-agricultural investment including food safety nets and cash transfers to the most needy, said FAO. 23 September 2009Farmers need to increase global food production by some 70 per cent in the coming decades to feed an additional 2.3 billion people by 2050, warned a paper published by the United Nations food agency today, which calls for urgent investment in agriculture. read more

United Way funding two new programs

A project that teaches children about body rights awareness is one of two new programs to receive funding from the United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk.Each year a group of volunteers representing various sectors from Haldimand and Norfolk form the allocation committee. Using their experience the committee allocates funds to programs they feel will meet the most urgent needs of local residents.Taylor the Turtle: My Body Belongs to Me originated in 2011.Carrie Sinkowski, creator and manager of the Taylor the Turtle program, works at the Sexual Assault Centre of Brant and created Taylor as a means to speak to children about the rights they have to their body and surroundings.Funding of $8,000 from United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk is being used to develop a new lesson plan based on identities, creating promotional items, and printing new facilitator kits.Sinkowski runs orientation lessons for people that work with children and want to use Taylor as a way to teach body awareness to the kids. These lessons can be for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, school teachers, social workers, and Sunday school teachers.The program does not actually talk about sexual abuse, but instead is focused on emotional literacy, resilience, and expression abilities.“We’re excited. We’ve had really good feedback on our program, and one of the nicest things for me has been that a lot of the growth of the program is so organic,” said Sinkowski.A second new program that has received United Way funding for 2019 is Path to Possibilities – Residents of Trillium Manor.This program is rent geared to income housing for individuals living with a mental illness. It is receiving $10,259 in funding.The individuals learn skills to live independently while living in this home. The skills include budgeting, healthy eating, grocery shopping, critical thinking, problem solving, and interpersonal relationship building.In total there are 15 programs throughout Haldimand and Norfolk receiving funding from the United Way this year, serving over 12,500 individuals. astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Womens basketball Ohio State Notre Dame battle for berth in Elite Eight

Ohio State junior guard Kelsey Mitchell drives to the basket and atttempts a layup against Purdue in the Big Ten tournament semifinal in Indianapolis on March 4. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorThe No. 5 seed Ohio State women’s basketball team heads back to Lexington, Kentucky, for its second consecutive Sweet 16 appearance, after ending the seasons of No. 12 seed Western Kentucky and No. 4 seed Kentucky in the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament.The Buckeyes lost last season in the round of 16 to No. 6 Tennessee. This year, OSU squares off against No. 1 seed Notre Dame, which is dealing with the recent season-ending ACL injury of its leading scorer and rebounder, Brianna Turner.OSU freshman forward Tori McCoy was due to match up with Turner, and said she will make the best of the situation.“She’s a great post player, but if she’s not playing, I’m going to use that to my advantage,” McCoy said.This news comes at a time when the Buckeyes’ post players are hitting their stride. Senior forward Shayla Cooper has averaged 14 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game in the eight games since redshirt junior forward Stephanie Mavunga left the lineup with a right foot injury. McCoy has also found her groove recently. She is 11 of 12 from the field and averaging 13 points, 7.5 rebounds and four blocks in the past two tournament games. “I had to come alive,” McCoy said. “It was kind of weird a little bit, being able to take that role and being able to score like that. I know that it was meant for me to come out and try to do something and contribute a little bit.”OSU’s leading scorer and Big Ten Player of the Year, junior guard Kelsey Mitchell, got off to a slow start in the first round versus Western Kentucky, but ended the game with 15 points. In the second round, she scored a more characteristic 21 points, and said she will look to carry that confidence over to Friday’s game.“(I will) try to stay confident in my game,” she said. “Trying to stay confident in my play and the confidence my teammates and coach have for me. I want to continue to have that confidence, I think that should be fine. Then defensively make sure I’m on my P’s and Q’s as far as not fouling, staying out of foul trouble as much as possible, small stuff like that.”The Scarlet and Gray will have the advantage of familiarity as they head back to Lexington for their third straight game. OSU traveled to Lexington, Kentucky — the location of the first two rounds. However, the venue is different.“Even though it’s a different arena — we’re going to play in Rupp (Arena) now — I think being in the same place will bring some comfort to our team,” OSU coach Kevin McGuff said.Although some might’ve seen playing in Lexington against the hometown Kentucky Wildcats as a disadvantage, McGuff believes it might’ve been for the best.“I think that tested our resolve a little bit, that Kentucky game, in a tough environment. So we had to show a lot of fortitude, and now you’re going up against one of the best teams in the country, and they’re going to test us in many ways,” he said. “We’re going to have moments where we face adversity, we have to stick together and have to execute. As hard as it was to go on the road, we’re better for it than we would’ve been if we played at home.”OSU will tipoff against Notre Dame at 7 p.m. Friday. read more

En cas d’aura, ce phénomène est précédé d’une phase de vasoconstriction des vaisseaux qui dure entre 5 et 60 minutes avant le début des crises. La migraine ophtalmique est souvent plus impressionnante qu’une migraine “classique” mais ne présente pour autant pas plus de dangers. Il s’agit d’une pathologie bénigne. Traitement : que faire en cas de migraine ophtalmiqueÀ lire aussiLe chewing-gum, une cause de migraine ?Le traitement de la migraine ophtalmique est le même que celui de la migraine. Il consiste en un traitement de crise (à base d’antidouleurs) visant à atténuer les symptômes et en un traitement de fond pour limiter la fréquence des crises, composé principalement de bêtabloquants. Il est également conseillé, en cas de crise de migraine ophtalmique, de s’allonger dans un endroit sombre et calme afin d’éviter toute aggravation. On peut soulager la céphalée en mettant une compresse froide sur le front et en se massant le cuir chevelu. Le 2 septembre 2016 à 15:44 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Talkeetnas inaugural Pride celebration draws a crowd

first_imgTalkeetna’s first Pride parade makes its way down Main Street. (Photo by Phillip Manning, KTNA – Talkeetna)What began as an idea between two friends turned into a LGBTQ+ Pride event that drew hundreds of people on Sunday.Listen nowTalkeetna’s first Pride parade brought in a larger crowd than expected this weekend, with an estimated 300 participants. As people gathered in the village park sporting colorful outfits, face paint, and rainbow flags, Daphne Doall LaChores, a drag queen and entertainer from Anchorage, took to the microphone:“Good afternoon. Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to Talkeetna, Alaska! How’s everybody doing today? We want to welcome you to the first ever Pride parade—Pride extravaganza—here. How many people are gay today? It’s Pride Day in Talkeetna. Everybody’s gay, isn’t that right?”The event began as an idea between two local teens, Celeste Harrell and Lillian Rust. Harrell said the concept began with a single conversation and a schedule conflict.“About two weeks ago—a little less than that actually—her and I were just hanging out. She had wanted me to come to the Anchorage parade, but I had work,” Harrell said. “So she was like, ‘Hey, maybe we can have something Sunday,’ and I was like, ‘Sure, I have that day off.’ That’s how this endeavor happened.”Initially, Harrell and Rust expected around 70 people. Word spread quickly about the Pride event on social media, however. The end result was a significant local turnout alongside many who drove from Anchorage or elsewhere in the Mat-Su to participate.One of the people who made the drive is RJ Johnson, who grew up in Talkeetna, but now lives in Anchorage. Johnson is used to being on the planning end of Pride events. He said seeing his hometown celebrate in the very park where he played growing up is special.“This is amazing. You know, in Anchorage I’ve always been part of a committee or part of planning for everything,” Johnson said. “For out here, being the first one, this is what Pride is all about, people coming together and celebrating.”After about an hour of mingling, the parade began. As they made the customary two laps of Main Street, parade participants were greeted with waves and cheers from spectators. For a short while, Talkeetna’s bustling summer activity stopped as rainbow flags, signs, and chants filled the street.After the parade, the celebration continued in the village park. Lillian Rust said she is grateful for everyone who supported Talkeetna’s first Pride parade.“It turned out better than I even anticipated,” Rust said. “It was a lot less stressful and nerve-wracking than I even thought. Just getting started was all that it took. Really, the support from everyone is what really got it rolling.”While no official plans are being made yet, many who attended Talkeetna’s first Pride celebration say they hope it’s not the last.last_img read more

Doom 3 source code now available

first_imgThe source code for Doom 3 has been promised for a while now, but got a final hold up in the form of nervous lawyers at Zenimax. Carmack’s Reverse was the sticking point, as Creative Labs owns a patent relating to it. That could have meant months of delays through talks and agreements, but Carmack decided to solve the problem by rewriting some of the code.He decided to do that last week, and he must of had a busy weekend because late yesterday the source code appeared on GitHub ready to be downloaded and dissected by many an eager programmer. In a tweet Carmack said that thanks must go to Timothee Besset for doing “most of the work” that made the release possible.Let’s be clear here. This isn’t the code for the game, it’s the code for the engine named id Tech 4 that made the game possible. Zenimax decided to release it under the General Public License v3 (GPL3) with detailed information about copying and modifications contained in the Copying.txt file.Whenever id Software release source code like this it forms a valuable resource for other coders, as well as a starting point for a number of projects. After all, it was used not only for Doom 3, but Quake 4, Prey, Enemy Territory, Quake Wars, Wolfenstein, and Brink. In all cases heavily modified to suit each game.Doom 3 is now 7 years old, and id Software has moved well beyond what the id Tech 4 engine is capable of. Even so, the techniques used in Carmack’s first engine coded using C++ are relevant both to the budding programmer and experienced development teams looking to get the most performance out of platforms with limited performance and resources.Lets hope id Software keep up this trend in the future, even for games released after being bought by Zenimax. If that’s the case, we should see the Rage engine some time in 2018/19.Read more at GitHublast_img read more

Uruguay approves samesex marriage in historic vote

first_imgNo related posts. Uruguay’s legislature voted Wednesday to allow same-sex marriages nationwide, making it only the second Latin American country to do so.The vote, with 71 of the 92 members of the lower House backing the measure, was welcomed with cries of “freedom, freedom” and “equality” from members of the public who burst into applause.The Senate last week approved a bill legalizing marriage between “two people of different or the same sex.”“Tomorrow, we will have a more just, more equal society with more rights for everyone,” said Sebastian Sabini, a lawmaker from the Frente Amplio ruling coalition.Uruguay’s move came after Argentina approved gay marriage in 2010. Same-sex marriage has been permitted in Mexico City, but not the rest of the country, since 2009.The Catholic Church appealed during Easter week for the defense of the institution of marriage, but only eight opposition senators voted against the bill, while 23 voted in favor.“Today, the Uruguayan state recognizes a form of love that is different from heterosexual love but just as valid,” said Federico Grana of the Ovejas Negras (Black Sheep) collective representing gays, lesbians and transvestites. “This victory is a victory for all social groups fighting for a fairer and egalitarian society.”An emotional Michelle Suárez, the country’s first transsexual lawyer and author of the initial equal marriage bill, expressed “profound joy” at the “substantive” vote.On May 1 Square in front of the Legislative Palace, dozens of supporters waved rainbow flags, while electronic music played in the background.“Last night, I could not sleep. I’m very excited,” said Roberto Acosta, 62, dressed in gold from head to toe and wearing a hat with gay pride colors. “It’s amazing to fight for so long and to win.”Silvina, who declined to give her last name because her parents do not know her sexual orientation, said that more tolerance was still needed despite the milestone.“Supposedly, we are a tolerant country. But I had rocks thrown at me just a few weeks ago just for laughing with someone in the street,” she said. “But I do hope this starts to make people aware of things now. At least the legal side of things will be taken care of.”Over the past six years, Uruguay has legalized civil unions for homosexuals and the adoption of children by same sex couples, as well as opened the military to gays.The new law allowing same-sex marriage also includes other changes that apply to all regardless of sexual orientation, including some concerning divorce, inheritance and adoption.The minimum age for legal marriage will increase to 16 for all instead of the current 12 for women and 14 for men.Same-sex couples who adopt will be allowed to choose the order in which a child uses family names.The new law will take effect 90 days after its enactment.

Mortgage Settlement Talks Stall Between US Wells Fargo

first_img in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Settlement talks between Wells Fargo and the U.S. government over alleged mortgage insurance fraud have stalled, according to a media report.According to a report from Bloomberg, lawyers for both sides told a judge on Tuesday they’re doubtful about the chances of reaching an agreement on a suit alleging the bank fraudulently submitted loans for insurance through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).The suit, brought against Wells Fargo in 2012, claims the megabank took advantage of its participation in an FHA insurance program to certify ineligible loans without needing approval from the agency. When those mortgages went under, the resulting defaults cost the program hundreds of millions of dollars, the government says.Citing an unnamed source, Bloomberg reports attorneys for both the United States and Wells Fargo said a settlement seems out of reach at this point, even after months of settlement talks.In a statement to Bloomberg, Wells Fargo spokesperson Tom Goyda said, “Our good-faith efforts to work with the federal government on a possible resolution of the complaint have not yet resulted in a settlement. We will move forward with presenting our case in support of our prudent and responsible FHA lending practices.”A spokesperson for U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office is pursuing the case, declined to comment.
