Authors: Chawla JJ, Arora D, Sandhu N, Jain M, Kumari A Abstract Separation of pubic symphysis during delivery is a rare complication resulting in considerable and prolonged morbidity for parturient women. The usual presentation is that of something giving way in the region of the symphysis pubis sometimes with an audible crack at the time of delivery. Unbearable pain on moving from side-to-side and on performing any weight-bearing activity (such as walking or climbing stairs) precludes ambulation in the immediate postpartum period. This could be accompanied by disruption of the sacroiliac joint, hemorrhage, or uri...

Conclusion: The lateral supratrochanteric approach to SNB and FNB in children can be an effective lower limb analgesic technique in supine patients. The trial is registered with ISRCTN70969666. PMID: 29213283 [PubMed]

Conclusions: A single surgeon series of unstable SCFEs treated by a modified Dunn procedure showed a 6% incidence of avascular necrosis and low complication rates at latest follow-up. Radiographs showed restoration of the slip angle, α angle, femoral neck length, and greater trochanteric height. This series reveals the safety and effectiveness of the modified Dunn procedure for unstable SCFE. Level of Evidence: Level III—retrospective review.

Conclusions: The IHDI classification is subjectively more facile to use and has excellent interrelater agreement for classifying the radiographic severity of DDH. It is also reliable in predicting success of closed reduction and need for late pelvic osteotomy. Significance: practitioners and researchers should consider the IHDI classification as a useful classification scheme and prognosticator when considering treatment options for late-presenting DDH.

This study sought to determine the interobserver and intraobserver reliability of the Gartland classification system, as well as to determine whether there was agreement that a fracture warranted operative intervention regardless of the classification system. Methods: A total of 200 anteroposterior and lateral radiographs of pediatric supracondylar humerus fractures were retrospectively reviewed by 3 fellowship-trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and 2 orthopaedic residents and then classified as type I, IIa, IIb, or III. The surgeons then recorded whether they would treat the fracture nonoperatively or operatively. ...

Conclusions: Cortical atrophy is common in the skeletally immature patients with tumor prosthesis and is associated with prosthesis failure. Patients with cortical atrophy should be closely monitored for prosthesis failure and appropriately managed to prevent failures. Level of Evidence: Level IV—therapeutic study.

Conclusions: The OMT classification of congenital upper limb differences exhibits substantial to almost perfect intraobserver and interobserver reliability among pediatric hand surgeons at different institutions. The OMT is therefore well-suited for classification of congenital upper limb anomalies in patients enrolled in a multicenter registry. Level of Evidence: Level II—diagnostic.

Authors: Dhillon SS, Harris K Abstract Peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) are generally considered as lesions in the peripheral one-third of the lung although a precise definition and radiographic anatomical landmarks separating central and peripheral lesion does not yet exist. The radiographic detection of such lesions has increased significantly with the adoption of lung cancer screening programs. These lesions are not directly visible by regular flexible bronchoscopes as they are usually distal to the lobar and segmental bronchi. Traditionally, depending on location and clinical stage at presentation, these les...

Publication date: March 2018 Source:International Journal of Paleopathology, Volume 20 Author(s): Thivviya Vairamuthu, Susan Pfeiffer The Late Archaic in northeastern North America (4500-2800 B.P.) pre-dates reliance on pottery and domesticated plants. It is thought to reflect a highly mobile, seasonal migratory foraging/hunting regimen. A juvenile skeleton with pervasive bone wasting and fragile jaws from the Hind Site (AdHk-1), ca. 3000 B.P., southwestern Ontario, provides evidence of the social context of her family group, including aspects of mobility and food management. The well-preserved bones and teeth are conside...
