Authors: Wang L, Xu L, Peng C, Teng G, Wang Y, Xie X, Wu D Abstract For avascular necrosis of the femoral head (ANFH), repair and regeneration are difficult because of the edema and high pressure caused by continuous ischemia and hypoxia. Core decompression (CD) is a classic method for treating early ANFH before the collapse of the femoral head; however, its effect is still controversial. To improve the therapeutic effect of CD on ANFH, a novel tissue-engineered bone (TEB) was constructed by combining bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) with nano-hydroxyapatite/collagen I/poly-L-lactic acid (nHAC/PLA) scaffo...

AbstractScaffolds are models designed to aid the interaction between cells and extracellular bone matrix, providing structural support for newly formed bone tissue. In this work, wollastonite with β‐TCP porous ceramic scaffolds was developed by the polymer sponge replication. Their microstructure, cell viability and bioactivity were tested. in vivo was performed to evaluate the use of a calcium silicate‐based implant in the repair of rabbit tibias. Holes were made in the both proximal an d distal tibial metaphysis of each animal and filled with calcium silicate‐based implant, and in the left tibia, no implant we...

ConclusionsFluid imbibition on postoperative MRI following osteochondral allografting of the knee is associated with the need for arthroscopic chondroplasty, but should not be interpreted as a sign of a failing graft.Level of evidenceLevel IV, Case Series.

We report the case of a 29-year-old-woman presenting with recurrent pneumonia for 5 years. A CT scan of the chest revealed poor vascular formation in the lower region of the right lung. The pulmonary sequestration was treated by embolization of the anomalous branch.

Delayed repair of orbital trapdoor fractures can jeopardize the viability of entrapped contents and prolong recovery. Variation in presentations, both clinically and radiographically, complicate prompt diagnosis. The oculocardiac reflex may be the only indication of fracture with entrapped orbital contents, but, unfortunately, the reflex has variable onset patterns and can mimic common diagnoses. Therefore, the authors present the case of a 14-year-old male with a right orbital floor fracture, who presented with delayed symptoms secondary to an oculocardiac reflex. The vagal sequelae of the reflex, including gastric hypera...

ConclusionIn 64 patients undergoing complex ventral incisional hernia repair with UBM reinforcement, all have experienced successful resolution of complex clinical conditions and 15.6% of these repairs have recurred at a median follow-up of 3  years. Three full-thickness biopsies of the repaired fascia years later shed light on a promising remodeling response which may signal strength and durability comparable to native fascia.

Nigro, Katie Budolfson, Dannah Raz, Ramin JamshidiAbstractComplete aortic transection is typically fatal and extremely rare in pediatric patients. High clinical suspicion, even in hemodynamically stable patients, is essential for timely recognition and intervention. There is scant literature on the management of complete aortic transection in pediatric patients. Retrospective chart review of an adolescent who survived a large complete thoracic aortic rupture along with s...

Abstract Congenital Bochdalek diaphragmatic hernia (DH) is often diagnosed incidentally in adulthood. It is recommended that all cases of DH be repaired immediately at diagnosis since acute presentation after the complications have already developed has higher morbidity and mortality. A 47-year-old male presented with Grade III angina and dyspnea. A routine chest radiograph revealed bowel shadows in the right thorax, and subsequent computerized tomography (CT) scan confirmed the same. Coronary angiogram revealed coronary artery disease which needed surgery. Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting followed by DH r...
