Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Posted by iskanbasal on February 23, 2008

Listen to a clinical practice article:

This is the current audio article at the NEJM:

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

A 72-year-old woman with hypertension presents with a 4-month history of lower back discomfort that radiates to both buttocks and lateral thighs. Previously, she had walked 2 miles (3.2 km) a day; now she has difficulty walking 2 blocks and standing up for more than 15 minutes at a time. Her physical examination is notable only for a slightly stooped posture and . . .

This condition is common in the elderly and important to know and diagnose; I’m annotating it here in my site to return back and read the article.

The NEJM, a very educational site, is giving in its beta form a gadget to add the image challenge to one’s site or to iGoogle. Although wordpress is a very helpful place, I could not add the gadget here using the text boxes in the widgets under presentations and I really don’t know any other way to add it. I added the gadget to IGoogle anyhow.
