1/Remembering spinal fracture classifications is back breaking work!

A #tweetorial to review the scoring system for thoracic & lumbar fractures—“TLICS” to the cool kids! #medstudenttwitter #medtwitter #radres #FOAMed #FOAMrad #neurorad #Meded #backpain #spine #Neurosurgery
2/We’ll talk about the imaging part of TLICS. TLICS scores a fx on (1) morphology & (2) posterior ligamentous complex (PLC) injury. Let’s start w/morphology. W/only mild axial loading, you get the simplest fx, a compression fx—like a simple long bone fx--worth 1 pt.
3/As the axial force grows, this becomes a burst fx with retropulsion of the posterior vertebral body—just as greater force causes more comminution in long bone fxs. A burst is worth 2 points.

1/Understanding cervical radiculopathy is a pain in the neck! But knowing the distributions can help your search
A 🧵to help you remember cervical radicular pain distributions #medstudenttwitter #medtwitter #radres #FOAMed #FOAMrad #neurorad #Meded #backpain #spine #Neurosurgery
2/First, a rule of thumb—or rather a rule of elbow! You have 10 fingers. If you divide that in half, you get 5. Similarly, if you divide your arm in half at the elbow, you get 5--C5 that is! C5 radiates towards the elbow. So if it radiates below this, it is > C5 & above is < C5
3/So let’s start with C2. C2 predominantly radiates along the dorsal aspect of the scalp, as it supplies the greater occipital nerve. I remember this bc the number 2 has a swan like neck that mimics the contour of the back of the head and its distribution

Everyone’s trying to sell you something, or take something off you, or get you to do something.
Everyone’s out for themselves.
No one can be trusted.
People are greedy.
People are lazy.
It’s a dog-eat-dog world.

That’s how I sometimes feel.

But it’s far from the truth, isn’t it?

These are just the lies we’re being told – or it’s people behaving that way because of the lies they’ve been told.

Our media is our enemy – and much of our schooling too.
We’re victims of cognitive imperialism – and the invading empire has established its outposts in the hinterlands of our minds.

Esp concerning not only for the Nation but Oregon. The back review for medicaid specifically. Using the same influencers for a review is of concern.…
Chou, to be blunt. Chou’s work was referenced numerous times for the development of #Oregon’s #medicaid back #spine #prohibition #forced #taper #GL60 policy (that predates the chronic pain task force).
Using Chou’s work again for the review? Is a major concern.
AHRQ title or not, Chou is principle researcher on both the previous back spine Guideline note 60, AND the upcoming review - of said back/ spine guidelines.
“Definition of insanity comes to mind”. What results should be expected?
