Publication date: Available online 14 July 2017 Source:Pediatria Polska Author(s): Marek Tramś, Magdalena Wlazło, Ewa Tramś, Justyna Pietrzyk The tibial spine fractures are uncommon but worth attention field. This type of fracture occurs mainly in children and adolescents due to the tibial intercondylar eminence not completed ossifying. It is believed that the tibial spine fractures are correspondent to the more frequent anterior cruciate ligament injury in adults. Treatment depends on the degree of fracture. 4-grade Meyers and McKeever scale is the most commonly used method in the classification. Grade I is the least complicated and grade IV is complete fragmentation of the detached element. There are no consistent guidelines or recommendation about various degrees of fracture treatment. Many surgical treatment methods are described. Complications reported in the current literature including arthrofibrosis, non-union, mal-union, pain and severe laxity lead to detailed analysis of available literature and long-term follow-up. Objective The purpose of this publication is to give information about diagnosis and treatment of the tibial eminence fracture. It is addressed to the doctors, especially paediatricians and paediatric orthopaedics who deal with this issue. Knowledge of this topic is very valuable due to the possible serious complications.

Authors: Hadden K, Gan JM, McClure S, McCarthy RE, Bumpass DB Abstract The Scoliosis Research Society Questionnaire (SRS30) was designed to measure healthrelated quality of life in scoliosis patients. Patients with low health literacy may need specific guidance when providing feedback on the SRS30 so that reliable and valid results are collected for clinical decision making. The purpose of this research study was to investigate the health literacy demands of the Scoliosis Research Society Questionnaire (SRS30) and to determine if health literacy best practices mitigate errors for patients with low health literacy. ...

Authors: Katagiri A, Kato T Abstract Neuropathic pain is characterized by sensory abnormalities, such as mechanical allodynia and heat hyperalgesia, associated with alteration in the peripheral and central nervous systems. After trigeminal nerve injury, phenotypic changes that involve the expression of calcitonin gene-related peptide occur in large- and medium-sized myelinated neurons; primary afferent neurons exhibit hyperexcitability because of neuron-glia interactions in the trigeminal ganglion. Increased nociceptive inputs from C- and Aδ-fiber and innocuous inputs from Aβ-fiber into the trigeminal sp...
