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. Methods: Ope...
Objective: To retrospectively review a large population of long cephalomedullary nails with special attention to distal implant position in the sagittal plane and assess the ability to avoid anterior cortical contact (ACC) by bending the distal tip of the nail intraoperatively. Design: Retrospective review of single surgeon experience. Setting: Single Level 1 trauma center. Outcomes: Radiographic position of the cephalomedullary nail with respect to the anterior femoral cortex and the effects of intraoperative bending of the distal tip of the nail. Patients: A total of 215 patients who underwent long cephalom...
Authors: Basourakos SP, Dean L, Van Gurp J, Reuter V, Russo P Abstract Adrenal-renal fusion is an anomaly misclassified as a renal tumor due to the absence of pathognomonic radiographic features. Herein, we report a case of a 61-year-old male who underwent a right radical nephrectomy for a presumed renal malignancy. Pathologic evaluation demonstrated a pheochromocytoma in the context of adrenal-renal fusion. Neoplastic transformation of fused adrenal tissue is rare but not unheard of and is typically adrenal cortical in origin. To our knowledge, this is the first description of a pheochromocytoma originating from a...

The cannulation of aortic side branches in endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) can be a challenging task. Normally, the branch identification can be performed only by using radiography and contrast dye, with documented safety risks to the patient. The TrackCath system (Medyria AG, Winterthur, Switzerland) aims to support the identification and cannulation of aortic side branches with a guiding catheter or a guidewire. It uses the low-energy hot-wire anemometry principle to detect changes in blood flow velocity and direction.
ConclusionCanal deviation and interruption of white lines were associated with loss of canal cortication on CBCT, indicating a direct contact between the roots and the mandibular canal which required a further assessment prior to the extraction.
ConclusionFemoral ACL tunnel placement was significantly influenced by the morphological variations of the Blumensaat ’s line. As detecting morphological variation in arthroscopic surgery is difficult, surgeons should confirm such variations pre-operatively using radiograph or CT so as to avoid making extremely shallow and low tunnels in hill type knees.Level of evidenceCase-controlled study, III.
ConclusionNaOCl is easily available and less expensive than MTA, and our results suggest that the outcomes of NaOCl pulpotomy and MTA pulpotomy are similar. Therefore, NaOCl may be a practical alternative to FC for pulpotomy in primary molars.
In this study, the joints of Inconel625 are made with CO2 Laser beam welding process. The experimentation is carried out with two sets of process parameters varying the laser power and estimating the response of the welded component. Radiography analysis and distortion in the weldments are carried out. Distortion is measured using the Vernier height gauge. The lower the better-quality characteristics are chosen for distortion. The welds are free from flaws and the lower heat input results in the lower distortion.
CONCLUSIONS: Impacted maxillary canines are usually diagnosed by using panoramic imaging or cone-beam computed tomography. Cone-beam computed tomography is the most accurate diagnostic method to identify the localisation of impacted maxillary canines. Palatal expansion can help to avoid the impaction of maxillary canines. Combined surgical and orthodontic treatment is used to treat impacted maxillary canines in permanent dentition.
