Conclusions: Intra-articular olecranon malreductions are inconsistently recognized by trauma surgeons on the lateral elbow radiograph. Therefore, articular incongruity may still be present after surgical fixation of comminuted olecranon fractures. We must further define the radiographic anatomic representation of the articular olecranon to improve surgical reduction and clinical outcomes.
For the past four years, this is James Beck’s routine: After a morning spent guzzling $5 vodka, he stumbles into a Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot, lying on the cement with his dusty oversized coat splayed open to reveal a cachectic chest. A concerned patron (cigarette and coffee in hand) will call 911 and, in accordance with protocol, an ambulance will deliver him to our emergency room. Upon his arrival, we unpredictably greet our guest, sometimes with a jovial, “Hey Jimbo!,” other times with rolled eyes and a reluctance to approach the stench of his urine-soaked khakis. James, too, is unpredictable: oc...
CONCLUSIONS: We explored the cell cycle alterations and cell cycle-related proteins expression levels in GSLCs after irradiation, providing a novel mechanism of radioresistance of GSLCs. PMID: 29463172 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions. Even if this collective radiation dose may seem moderate, at an individual level this medical practice delivers the greatest doses and, therefore, optimisation remains of paramount importance.
ConclusionsOsteochondral lesions of the distal tibia represent a challenge for the orthopedic surgeon because of their difficulty diagnostic and rarities. The high incidence of good outcome in our series indicates that the one-step BMDCT could be a valid option for the treatment of this rare type of lesions. Further studies with a longer follow-up and more accurate imaging studies are necessary to confirm these results.

ConclusionThere have only been scarce reports of avascular necrosis in patients with sickle cell trait. This manuscript presents such a case and includes the trials and tribulations associated with its management.
AbstractChronic inflammation is pathologically associated with various clinical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Several anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs currently available in market presents a wide range of problems. Therefore, the current study was aimed to evaluate anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of newly synthesized compound 2-(5-mercapto-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)-N-propylbenzenesulphonamide (MOPBS). Carrageenan and CFA-induced models were developed for evaluation of anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) was performed to determine the mRNA expression levels ...
In conclusion, liver dysfunctions were observed as late effects of irradiation with an apparent association with malfunction of lipid metabolism. PMID: 29470638 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We report a series of Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes with different ligands containing a dipicolyl unit functionalized with urea groups that may contain or not a phenylboronic acid function. These complexes were designed for the recognition of phosphorylated anions through coordination to the metal ion reinforced by hydrogen bonds involving the anion and NH groups of urea. The complexes were isolated and several adducts with pyrophosphate were characterized using Xray diffraction measurements. Coordination of one of the urea nitrogen atoms to the metal ion promoted the hydrolysis of the ligands containing 1,3-diphenylurea uni...
