NAPCO Announces Breakthrough Stripper – Safast methylene chloride free stripper guards the health of bathtub refinishers

Skokie, IL (PRWEB) April 22, 2015

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)-supported Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Program has identified at least 14 worker deaths since 2000 related to bathtub refinishing with stripping agents containing methylene chloride. North American Polymer Corporation (NAPCO) has come out with Safast, a methylene chloride free stripper. This stripper performs as well as conventional strippers without the dangerous methylene chloride component. Bath, tile and countertop refinishers around the country are breathing a sigh of relief.

For years methylene chloride has been a critical component of paint strippers. However, if precautions are not properly followed the fumes can cause serious health problems, including death. Previously, a bath refinisher needed to use an expensive fresh air breathing system. These systems provided the refinisher clean, outside air through a facemask. However the fumes were still in the environment and a potential risk.

NAPCO started working on a methylene chloride free stripper late in 2013. By mid-2014, they were testing a few promising formulations. Late last year they settled on a successful formulation and are now bringing it to market. Dani Nichols, Vice President of NAPCO, and herself a degree holder in chemistry, said, “Safast methylene chloride free stripper guards the health of bathtub refinishers. No longer do they need to worry about their health in order to do their job.”

Tub, tile and counter refinishing is the process by which older fixtures are transformed to like-new shape using special coatings. Refinishing saves homeowners thousands over the cost of replacement.

Top Questions and Answers about Foraminal Stenosis

Dr. Praveen Kadimcherla

When your back really hurts – potentially causing tingling in the arms and legs or even problems walking – you really want to know why. A substantial number of back pain patients are suffering from foraminal stenosis, a condition that’s most common in men and women over 50, according to Praveen Kadimcherla, MD, an orthopedic spine surgeon at Atlantic Spine Center.

What’s foraminal stenosis? Simply put, it occurs when spinal nerve roots – which run through tiny openings called foramina at every level of the spinal column – become compressed. This narrowing, called stenosis, can cause pain, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness in the arms or legs, whichever extremity is located closest to the compression.

Foraminal stenosis can be a highly uncomfortable condition to endure, explains Dr. Kadimcherla, who is fellowship-trained in orthopedic and spine neurosurgery.

“Patients get frustrated by the pain and discomfort they experience just being in certain positions or doing certain activities,” he says. “They may not know until they visit a spine specialist just what’s wrong.”

What causes foraminal stenosis?

Educating patients is the first step in dealing with foraminal stenosis, Dr. Kadimcherla notes. And their top question often is, what causes the condition?

In addition to aging, he says, foraminal stenosis can be caused by these problems:

Bulging or herniated discs: When circular, spongy spinal discs protrude from the spinal column, they can pinch nerve roots in the foraminal openings.
Bone spurs: Irregular bony growths known as bone spurs can develop on the foramina, pushing on nerve roots.
Degenerative disc disease: When spinal discs break down – a condition also associated with aging – they can narrow foraminal openings.
Spondylolisthesis: Bony vertebrae in the spine can slip over each other, triggering significant narrowing of the foramina.

“One of the reasons why it’s so important to consult with a spine specialist when you’re experiencing lingering, nagging back pain, numbness or weakness is because so many potential conditions may be combining to create a big problem,” Dr. Kadimcherla says. “All of the causes of foraminal stenosis can lead to significant suffering on their own, as well as contribute to a condition that can severely impact your quality of life.”

What can be done to treat it?

After answering what foraminal stenosis is and who tends to develop it, Dr. Kadimcherla usually tackles patients’ most pressing question: What can be done to treat it?

“Some patients are desperate to be rid of their nagging pain – though it often comes and goes – and just want to be able to move normally again,” he explains. “But if foraminal stenosis is diagnosed early, conservative treatment is usually effective.”

First up is getting an accurate diagnosis, which typically involves imaging tests such as x-rays, MRI scans or CT scans, all of which provide a different look at hard and soft tissues in the back.

Non-surgical treatments, many of which can be done at home, include NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications), which lessen inflammation in the region; activity modifications; in-office epidural cortisone injections; and physical therapy and prescribed exercises.

When is surgery necessary?

Occasionally, however, these conservative approaches simply don’t work. That’s when Dr. Kadimcherla and his colleagues at Atlantic Spine may consider a minimally invasive procedure called an endoscopic foraminotomy to alleviate foraminal stenosis.

“Once a patient complains about the inability to walk for significant periods of time without sitting to relieve pain, they’re usually at a point where they would probably benefit from surgical intervention,” he explains.

During an endoscopic foraminotomy, surgeons insert a small metal tube into a tiny incision in the patient’s back, using other tools through this tube to remove the debris – such as bone spurs, scar tissue or ligament overgrowth – causing the foraminal stenosis.

“Most patients can quickly go home and get back to their old life,” Dr. Kadimcherla says. “We do whatever it takes to allow people to be free of back pain.”

Atlantic Spine Center is a nationally recognized leader for endoscopic spine surgery with several locations in NJ and NYC.,

MOMO: Best Stock App to Discover New Trade and Investment Opportunities. Now Available on Apple App Store

MOMO on iPhone

MOMO Stock Discovery is now available in the App Store for iOS users.

MOMO provides a new way to stay up to date on stock market activity and solves an age-old problem for people who are too consumed with work and life activities to keep up with big investment opportunities.

Before MOMO, busy traders and investors would learn of a stock following a big move in evening news or online after a fifteen, twenty or even fifty percent change; resulting in “chasing” profits and poor outcomes.

Brent Gaynor, Founder of Mometic states, “With over 6500 stocks in the US stock market alone, it is very difficult to discover which stocks are breaking out among all the noise. Media outlets only report on what the masses view as popular and outdated watch-lists are manually entered, unwieldy with more than a dozen or so entries and do little to uncover new trading opportunities. MOMO filters out the 6500 US stocks that are not moving, so you can concentrate on those that are – before others.”

MOMO Features

MOMO was purpose-built to instantly report new daily stock highs and lows enabling users to discover and alert themselves to important price activity. MOMO utilizes cloud backend processing and a real-time datafeed optimized for mobile data usage.

With our trending stocks, MOMO users can quickly identify momentum stocks with strong social signals and quickly engage with others – a powerful combination,” says Howard Lindzon, Founder of StockTwits and Robinhood investor.

Gesture-based design provides natural one-handed usability.

MOMO is designed to be an immediate asset. Discrete menus maximize screen-viewing area and intuitive controls don’t overcomplicate its purpose.

Follow the buzz with StockTwits

A natural partner, StockTwits is a “Twitter for Stocks” that gives MOMO users the latest news and social insight. If you see a “ST” on the MOMO stream – it signifies the stock is receiving notable StockTwits activity.

No Need to Treat Stable Meniscus Tears During ACL Surgery, New Research Shows

While athletes undergoing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery often have an additional meniscus injury, treating these tears at the same time may not be necessary. Research presented today by the MOON Knee Group at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Annual Meeting in Orlando shows positive results for meniscal tears that were deemed stable and left alone at the time of ACL reconstruction.

“We examined 194 patients with meniscus tears who did not receive treatment at the time of ACL surgery,” noted lead author Kyle R. Duchman, MD from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. “In these patients, 97.8% of those with lateral meniscus tears and 94.4% of those with medial tears left untreated required no reoperation at least 6 years after initial surgery.”

The study noted that overall, only 16 tears (7.7%) required reoperation, with the majority being in younger patients and those with a tear greater than 10mm. Data was collected at seven centers between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2004.

“As surgeons, we want to avoid too much intervention on a patient’s knee when good outcomes can be expected,” noted Duchman. “While large, unstable meniscus tears may need treatment at time of ACL surgery, this study confirms the smaller, stable tears can be left alone.”

This study was the first of its kind to report on a patient group at a minimum of six years post-operation.

This research from the MOON Knee Group received the Herodicus Award at AOSSM’s 2015 Annual Meeting.


The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) is a world leader in sports medicine education, research, communication and fellowship, and includes national and international orthopaedic sports medicine leaders. The Society works closely with many other sports medicine specialists, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, family physicians, and others to improve the identification, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports injuries. AOSSM is also a founding partner of the STOP Sports Injuries campaign to prevent overuse and traumatic injuries in kids.
