AbstractFremanezumab (fremanezumab-vfrm; Ajovy®), a monoclonal antibody that targets calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), is indicated for the prevention of migraine in adults in the EU and USA. Subcutaneous fremanezumab 225  mg once monthly or 675 mg once every 3 months was effective in reducing monthly migraine days or headache days in patients with episodic or chronic migraine in pivotal, 12-week clinical trials. Both regimens also reduce acute headache medication use and headache-related disability. Improvements were maintained through ≤ 52 weeks of additional treatment in a longer-...

Objective: To compare the rate of malreduction after high fibular fractures associated with syndesmosis injury treated with open reduction and internal fixation, with either 2 screws or 1 knotless TightRope device. Design: Prospective randomized controlled multicenter trial. Setting: Eleven academic and community hospitals including Level 1 and Level 2 trauma centers across Canada. Patients/Participants: One hundred three patients with OTA/AO 44-C injuries with demonstrated radiographic syndesmosis diastasis or instability after malleolar bony fixation were followed for 12 months after treatment.

Conclusions: Three thousand eight hundred ten articles were identified, and 12 met inclusion criteria. These studies encompassed 497 patients with an average age of 14.1 years (8–18 years, range). Both operative and nonoperative management of displaced midshaft clavicle fractures in this population provide excellent rates of union and patient-reported outcome measures. Compared with nonoperative management, operative management yielded faster return to activity, superior Constant scores, and equal QuickDASH scores. Operative management had higher complication rates and complications that required secondary operativ...
