Pre-operative radiographic findings predicting concomitant posterior malleolar fractures in tibial shaft fractures: a comparative retrospective study

A concomitant tibial shaft and posterior malleolar fracture is a type of regular compound fracture. The associated posterior malleolar fractures are mostly occult fractures, which often do not show a fracture ...

J Strength Cond Res 34(2): 382–388, 2020—Studies investigating skeletal maturity and motor abilities in youth Asian elite soccer players are lacking. We aimed to investigate the cross-sectional relationship among skeletal age (SA), physical characteristics, and motor abilities in youth elite soccer players. Skeletal age is commonly used to estimate the maturity status of youth athletes using a hand-wrist radiograph. We enrolled 49 youth elite male soccer players (12.7 &pl...

ConclusionAdrenal lipomatous tumors are uncommon but with the increase use of imaging modalities their detection has increased. Further studies are needed to establish guidelines in the management of these tumors, especially that they can mimic malignant conditions.

Publication date: Available online 27 January 2020Source: Journal of Clinical Orthopaedics and TraumaAuthor(s): Parmanand Gupta, Vikas Gupta, Bharath Patil, Vishal VermaAbstractAngular deformities are common presentations in childhood and adolescent age group. It is important to differentiate a true deformity from a physiological deformity, this requires measurement of the intercondylar and intermalleolar distance. Once a true deformity is diagnosed, the apex of the deformity requires to be established.Lower limb frontal plane deformities are evaluated with a true AP standing radiographs of the entire lower limb from hip t...

AbstractObjectivesThe purpose of this systematic review was to examine if, in adult patients, the absence or presence of smoking influenced the prevalence of periapical periodontitis (PP).Materials and methodsDatabases were searched, and original research manuscripts up to June 2019 were identified by two reviewers. The Newcastle-Ottawa Scale (NOS) was used for risk of bias. The Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) system was used for certainty in the evidence. A meta-analysis was performed using RevMan 5 software. Risk ratio (RR) was used for the cohort studies, and odds ratio (OR) w...

CONCLUSIONS In the natural sitting position, a reduction in LL was associated with TK, SVA and PT increased, and there were differences between men and women. The characteristics of spinopelvic alignment in healthy older adults should be considered when planning corrective spinal surgery. PMID: 31981456 [PubMed - in process]

The objective of this rev iew is to appraise existing literature that used biplane radiography to measure in vivo kinematics of the ankle in healthy, CAI, and BG populations.Recent FindingsResults showed that the tibiotalar joint contributes more to dorsi/plantarflexion, the subtalar joint contributes more to inversion/eversion and internal/external rotation, and that both joints are capable of complex three-dimensional (3D) motion. Preliminary data suggests that demanding activities (as opposed to walking) are necessary to elicit kinematic differences between healthy and CAI populations. Results also indicate that the BG ...

ConclusionThe findings of this study partly confirm the hypotheses that pain and functional impairments after TKA without patellar resurfacing are associated with patellar shape. No association was revealed between postoperative patellar orientation and function nor pain. Quantitative consideration of patellar congruency could therefore prevent pain and improve function after TKA without patellar resurfacing.Level of evidenceRetrospective study, Level III.

AbstractParosteal osteosarcoma of craniofacial location was first described in 1961 and since then, less than 20 cases have been reported in the English literature. This rare tumor of the jaws most commonly affects middle aged men, is considered a low grade, well ‐differentiated neoplasm, characterized by spindle cell stroma with minimal atypia and rare mitotic figures, separating irregular well‐developed trabeculae of woven bone. It is considered to have a favorable prognosis and low metastatic potential if treated by radical excision, compared to conve ntional and periosteal osteosarcomas. Clinically and radiographic...
