Screening of pediatric facial fractures by brain computed tomography: diagnostic performance comparison with facial computed tomography - Ryu J, Yun SJ, Lee SH, Choi YH.

OBJECTIVES: Facial bone fractures secondary to head trauma are more common in children than in adults. Recently, multidetector row computed tomography (CT) has been considered superior to conventional radiography. Some studies have reported that facial sof...

AbstractBackgroundAES mobile-bearing total ankle replacement was developed from the Buechel Pappas model. It was withdrawn in 2009, after identification of a higher than expected complication rate. The purpose of the current study was to analyse clinical outcomes, failures and survival of the initial series of 50 AES published in 2009.MethodsIn this single-centre continuous prospective study (2003 –2006), 50 AES prostheses were included. Pre-operative osteoarthritis was mainly post-traumatic (50%) and secondary to instability (36%). All patients were assessed with clinical and radiographic follow-up at six months, on...

AbstractBackgroundLittle is known about the long-term course of headache in patients with moderate-to-severe headache due to traumatic brain injury (TBI). We evaluated the course of headache in patients with moderate-to-severe headache due to mild TBI.MethodsSince September 2009, patients with TBI prospectively rated their headache using a numeric rating scale (NRS). From the database containing 935 patients with TBI between September 2009 and December 2013, 259 patients were included according to following criteria: (1) newly onset moderate-to-severe headache (NRS  ≥ 4) due to head trauma; (2) age&thin...

The objective of this study was to assess clinical and computed-tomography (CT) outcomes at least 2 years after humeral head resurfacing to treat concentric gleno-humeral osteoarthritis. Hypothesis Humeral head resurfacing provides similar outcomes to those achieved with stemmed humeral head implants. Materials and methods This single-centre retrospective studyincluded 40 Copeland™ and 65 Aequalis™ humeral resurfacing heads implanted between 2004 and 2012. Mean patient age at diagnosis was 64 years. The diagnoses were osteoarthritis with an intact (68%) or torn (21%) rotator cuff, avascular necrosis (5%), osteo...

CONCLUSION: The expedited CT-based methods for fracture severity assessment present a solution to issues limiting the utility of prior methods. In a relatively short amount of time, the expedited methodology provided a severity score capable of predicting PTOA risk, without needing to have the intact contralateral limb included in the CT scan. The described methods provide surgeons an objective, quantitative representation of the severity of a fracture. Obtained prior to the surgery, it provides a reasonable alternative to current subjective classification systems. The expedited severity metric offers surgeons an objective...

Conclusions In the era of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, plain radiographs remain a highly sensitive and specific primary tool to triage patients with a suspected SL tear to further diagnostic work-up and surgical care. Key Points • Scapholunate ligament (SL) lesions are the most relevant soft tissue wrist injuries. • Missed and untreated SL ruptures can cause painful and disabling post-traumatic wrist osteoarthritis. • Reliable threshold values of radiogr...
