AbstractClavicle duplication is a rare entity with limited number of cases reported. Congenital origin and trauma related mechanisms are the main hypotheses to explain this anatomical variation. In skeletally immature patient, trauma may cause physeal-metaphyseal injury in the distal clavicle rather than acromioclavicular strain. The distal epiphysis remains in continuity with acromion and has an intact periosteal sleeve. The periosteal sleeve is extremely osteogenic, and may lead to new bone formation between epiphysis and displaced metaphysis. This remodeling potential and the intact acromioclavicular joint allow the chi...

AbstractPost-traumatic cyst-like lesions are an infrequent complication of fractures in children. To our knowledge, no more than 30 cases have been reported in the English-language literature. They most commonly affect the distal radius following a greenstick or torus fracture. These cortical defects are often asymptomatic, non-expansile, and typically resolve spontaneously in 1 –3 years. They appear proximal to the compression site and are usually identified 2–4 months after a minor fracture. These lesions have a distinct appearance on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with intralesional fatty marrow...

It’s tempting. I’ve been there. You hit a rough patch with your psychiatrist and you think, “I’m outta here.” There may be some things you can do to not only get your relationship back on track but also give it a turbo boost. I want to explore just a few of the things we can do to improve our relationships with our doctors. First some basic facts. Psychiatry is a rare discipline of medicine and the population of psychiatrists is aging and not being replaced quickly enough by younger physicians. There are many areas of the country, small town and rural particularly, that have few to no psychiat...

This report presents a case of cervical pneumatocysts as an incidental finding on cone-beam computed tomography. Pneumatocysts are gas-containing lesions of unknown etiology. They usually present in the ilium or sacrum, adjacent to the sacroiliac joint. In the literature, 21 case reports have described cervical pneumatocysts. Cervical pneumatocysts should be differentiated from other lesions, such as osteomyelitis, osteonecrosis, and neoplasms, as well as post-traumatic and post-surgical cases. Computed tomography, cone-beam computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging are appropriate tools to diagnose cervical pneu...

DISCUSSION: To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to correlate the levels of endogenous NPY in supratentorial CSF with cognitive outcome in good-grade sSAH patients. Excessive NPY release into CSF may have a short-term influence on the pathogenesis of neuropsychological deficits. The impact of cerebrovascular manipulation on NPY release has to be further elucidated. ABBREVIATIONS: ANOVA: analysis of variance; aSAH: aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage; AUC: area under the curve; CBF: cerebral blood flow; CSF: cerebrospinal fluid; CT (scan): computed tomography (scan); CV: cerebral vasospasm; DIND: delaye...
