Management of Mandible Fracture by Plating and Wiring: An Otolaryngologist Perspective at Teritiary Care Center
AbstractThe facial area is one of the most frequently injured parts of the body (Abiose in Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 24(1):319,1986; Adi et al. in Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 28(3):1949,1990; Allan and Daly in Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 19(5):26871,1990), and the mandible is one of the most commonly fractured maxillofacial bones (1990; Azevedo et al. in J Trauma 45(6):10847,1998; Bremerich et al. in Acta Stomatol Belg 93:511,1996). Mandible is the only mobile bone of the skeleton, and hence vulnerable to fracture. This is a retrospective study of 50 mandibular fracture cases managed at the Department of ENT, Govt. Medical College Bhavnagar during the 2 years period from 2014 to 2016. Maximum subjects were in age group 21–30 years with a male preponderance. Road traffic accident is the main cause followed by falls and assault. Symphysis is the most common site of Mandibular fracture. Mandible fracture is a common entity in Road traffic acciden ts. Multiple fractures are seen in 40% of mandibular fracture cases. The results were equally good in patients requiring only MMF (Maxillo Mandibular Fixation) and inpatients requiring MMF and Plating, during the follow up up to 8 weeks. Physiotherapy was advised for all the post op patients after 2 months.

We report a case of a neglected foreign body present in the bronchus of an adult for 23 years and treated as intermittent asthma. The diagnosis was revealed following the development of severe sepsis of a pulmonary origin. The foreign body was removed by rigid bronchoscopy, antibiotic therapy instituted and pre- and post-interventional respiratory physiotherapy carried out. Satisfactory progress was marked by the complete clearing of pulmonary suppuration, with only a small localized and asymptomatic focus of bronchial dilatation remaining. The persistence of chronic, unexplained respiratory complaints should prompt t...
CONCLUSION: Tai Chi exerts significantly greater effects on patients with FM than standard care; therefore, we suggest that Tai Chi can be used as an alternative treatment. However, more large-scale, high-quality, and multicenter trials are required to provide stronger evidence on the effectiveness of Tai Chi, as an alternative to aerobic exercise, compared with conventional therapeutic exercise.

Authors: Wang X, Ho MJ Abstract Health professions students will invariably confront professionalism dilemmas. These early encounters significantly influence future professional attitudes and behaviours. Heretofore, studies concerning professionalism dilemmas experienced by health professions students across disciplines have been limited. To address this issue, we recruited 56 students with clinical experience from the National Taiwan University College of Medicine in the nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, medical technology, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy programs to participate in this research to compare hea...
Conclusions: Person-centred communication was embedded in clinical practice; the 'patient voice' was considered central. Clinical risk was a priority. Education to improve communication was highlighted as a way to enhance person-centred communication. PMID: 31514630 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent condition. People with knee OA often have other co-morbidities such as obesity. Exercise is advocated in all clinical guidelines for the management of knee OA. It...

ConclusionIn older inpatients, the addition of advice from a physiotherapist about maintaining activity during hospitalisation increases the level of physical activity and prevents loss of mobility.RegistrationClinicalTrials.gov NCT03297567.
