Extensor Mechanism Injury in the Pediatric Population —A Clinical Review

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1625955The extensor mechanism of the knee—consisting of the four muscles of the quadriceps, the quadriceps tendon, the patella, and the patellar ligament—is essential for lower extremity function during both standing and ambulation. The presence of articular cartilage and growing physes in the pediatric knee, coupled with the generation of significant tensile force, creates an opportunity for pathology unique to the pediatric population.Tibial tubercle fractures and patella injuries are quite rare, and even pediatric-trained orthopaedic surgeons may not be exposed to these injuries on a regular basis. It is the intent of this article to discuss the current literature regarding the mechanism of injury, diagnostic workup, classification, indications for surgical versus non-surgical management, and techniques for operative management for both tibial tubercle and patella (transverse and sleeve) fractures.

We describe case reports from patients of the Occupational Disease Centre in Brest, France between 2013 and 2016. Consultations were conducted within the framework of clinical occupational medicine with a focus on real work situations. Diagnoses of workaholism were made according to Goodman's criteria. The situations of four patients are reported. Three of these suffered from workaholism: a 41-year-old sales representative, a 51-year-old nurse in progressive care and a 30-year-old saleswoman. The last case report concerns the situation of a 41-year-old team leader who was first suspected to have workaholism, but later diag...

Contributors : Heather Machkovech ; Arvind SubramaniamSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing ; OtherOrganism : Homo sapiensCellular stress is often accompanied by non-canonical initiation of translation at alternate start codons in mammalian cells. Here we systematically investigate the extent and impact of alternate translation initiation in the context of influenza virus infection. We use ribosome profiling with the initiation inhibitor lactidomycin to experimentally delineate translation initiation sites in a human lung epithelial cell line infected with influenza virus.

CONCLUSIONS: Currently, misconduct is the main cause of retraction. Specific strategies to limit this phenomenon must be implemented. It would be useful to standardize reasons and procedures for retraction. The development of a standard retraction form to be permanently indexed in a database might be relevant.

CONCLUSIONS: Overall, our findings could be used to clarify the appropriate health expenditure level or to obtain better environmental quality and social well-being. That is, empirical support is provided on how health management and policy makers should include more considerations for the use of cleaner fuels in developed countries.

John Stuart Mill was born. A revolutionary thinker, Mill's ideas had a profound influence on the history and development of psychology. A notable example being Mill's empirically driven system of inductive logic, which was adopted and applied by Wilhelm Wundt, a founding figure of modern psychology. Mill also created a lasting legacy within psychology through his notion of mental chemistry, namely his suggestion that a complex idea is greater than the sum of its parts and constitutes more than just a collection of simple ideas added together. This doctrine of association became a key tenet of Gestalt psychology. See follow...
