Authors: Shi H, Xiao L, Wang Z Abstract Curative effect of artificial femoral head replacement on hip joint function and complications of elderly patients with femoral intertrochanteric fracture were investigated. Eighty patients who were operated for femoral intertrochanteric fractures operation were randomly divided into observation group (n=40) and control group (n=40). The observation group was treated with artificial femoral head replacement, while the control group received internal proximal femur locking plate fixation. In the observation group, the operation time was shorter than that in the control group (P

ConclusionsLIFT and anal plug are safe procedures for patients with primary and recurrent anal fistula. Both techniques showed excellent results in terms of healing and complication rate. None of our patients had incontinence after 5 years follow-up. The best success rate in our patients was seen after LIFT procedure with mucosal advancement flap. Larger and controlled randomized trials are needed for better assessment of treatment options.ResumoIntroduçãoO tratamento cirúrgico da fístula anal é complexo devido à possibilidade de incontinência fecal. A fistulotomia e o seton ...

By MATTHEW HOLT Today we have a humming economy and insane politics. In early 2009 we were in economic meltdown and were about one week into the sanest, soberist Administration and even Congress over many recent decades. In February 2009 They passed a stimulus bill that had a huge impact on the health IT market (and still does). At that time there was much debate on THCB about what the future of health IT policy should look like and how the stimulus “Meaningful Use” money should be spent. My January 2009 summary of that whole debate introduced the notion of “Cats and Dogs in health IT”. They&r...

ConclusionsAnalysis of outcomes in patients with BCVI suggests that BVI should be distinguished from the better-studied CVI. Each injury type has been found to possess its own distinct risk factors, likelihoods of progression, and surgical accessibility, all of which affect management. Data on complete vessel transections remains limited for all BCVIs, with no documented cases of bilateral BVI to date. Our case study supports the 100% mortality rate seen in previously reported BCVI transections. Furthermore, our findings suggest that BVI transections occur in patients with coexisting injuries, which challenges the ability ...

Conclusions: This case series of pediatric patients with PVNS of the knee represents the largest single-center cohort in the literature. Although previously considered a disease of young adult patients, PVNS should be considered in pediatric patients with an insidious onset of joint swelling with or without pain. Symptoms may be present for months to years before diagnosis. Patients are frequently misdiagnosed, most commonly with rheumatologic diseases, bleeding disorders, or septic arthritis. MRI with gradient echo sequences is the diagnostic imaging study of choice and arthroscopic synovectomy produces good outcomes wi...

Authors: Ram E, Bachar GN, Goldes Y, Joubran S, Rath-Wolfson L Abstract Background: Hemorrhoids are a common anorectal condition with a major medical and socioeconomic impact. Owing to the high incidence of symptomatic hemorrhoids in the adult population together with the risk of complications of traditional surgery, researchers are seeking less invasive methods of hemorrhoidal treatment.The aim of this study was to present our experience with the mini-invasive Doppler guided hemorrhoidal laser procedure (HeLP) in symptomatic 2nd and 3rd degree hemorrhoids with absent or minimal mucosal prolapse. Methods: The c...

A 45-year-old man with human immunodeficiency virus infection and undetectable viral load on antiretroviral therapy, who engaged in sex with men, was evaluated for 1 month of constipation, abdominal pain, and intermittent rectal bleeding. He reported a transient rash, which resolved at presentation. A colonoscopy (Figure A) showed aphthous ulcers, friability, and exudates in the rectosigmoid colon and cecum with normal intervening colon and terminal ileum. A colonic biopsy (Figure B) showed long, undulating bacteria attached vertically to the brush border, and stained black with Warthin –Starry stain, consistent with...
