This study found no difference between treatment in one visit or treatment over multiple visits (1/117 single ‐visit participants lost a tooth versus 2/103 multiple‐visit participants; odds ratio (OR) 0.44, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.04 to 4.78; very low‐quality evidence). We found no evidence of a difference between single ‐visit and multiple‐visit treatment in terms of radiological failure (risk ratio (RR) 0.91, 95% CI 0.68 to 1.21; 1493 participants, 11 studies, I2 = 18%; low ‐quality evidence); immediate postoperative pain (dichotomous outcome) (RR 0.99, 95% CI 0.84 to 1.17; 1560 participants, 9 studies...

Infection after total elbow arthroplasty can be a devastating problem. Eradication of the infection can often be difficult and may compromise the already tenuous bone and soft tissue, particularly the elbow extensor mechanism. Resection arthroplasty with the complete removal of all foreign material is often necessary to adequately treat the infection. Components may be well fixed and removal may further compromise bone and soft tissue. The authors present a technique of ulnar cortical window that facilitates the removal of a well-fixed ulnar component and the associated cement mantle. An illustrative surgical case is also ...

Authors: Ravalli S, Szychlinska MA, Lauretta G, Di Rosa M, Musumeci G Abstract Introduction: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease which primarily affects hyaline cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness and loss of mobility of the entire articulation. Diagnosis is commonly based on symptoms and radiographs, but there is a growing interest in detecting novel biomarkers, in serum, urine and synovial fluid, which can be predictors of disease onset and progression.Areas covered: This review provides an overview of the main biomarkers currently used in OA clinical practice, with a focus on lubricin, a surface glyc...

ConclusionIn a mass casualty incident, radiopaque patient identification stickers affixed to injured patients may help to ensure confidence in the correlation between patients and their imaging. Tested prototypes were found to be easily legible without substantial degradation of image quality. Preferred anatomical position and construction material was established. Consideration should be given to addition of such radiographic identity aides to MCI patient registration packs.

This study presents the 2019 findings of the acceptance testing and routine quality control (QC) for the general radiographic X-ray equipment such as film/screen fixed systems in Malaysia. Acceptance testing and routine QC of the diagnostic X-ray imaging equipment are the requirements for the standard radiation apparatus and should be compared to the requirements for European and RADIATION SAFETY STANDARD HR001:2010 legislation, which were considered the standard values of all general radiographic X-ray equipment since it identical to the manufacture's data. The general radiographic X-ray system test was conducted in the B...
