ConclusionHangman's fracture is associated with low rates of mortality and neurological complications. Non-operative treatment is appropriate in Type I hangman's fracture, with a 100% healing rate in our study. Types II and III are characterised by damage to the ligaments and discs requiring either anterior C2-C3 fusion or posterior C1-C3 screw fixation.Level of evidenceIII.

Authors: Maruyama N, Higuchi T, Ono M, Oguma H, Nakamura Y, Utsunomiya K, Akiya Y, Horikami T, Yamazaki T, Okawa E, Ando H, Abe M Abstract BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation between aortic calcification and demographic and biochemical parameters in hemodialysis patients. SUMMARY: Calcification scores of the aortic arch and abdominal aorta were determined from multi-slice computed tomography scans and evaluated according to the Agatston score. The associations between demographic and biochemical parameters and aortic calcification score were determined. In total, 190 patients ...

Abstract Despite the advancements made in medicine and treatment of tuberculosis over the last century, it remains a significant healthcare challenge. It remains the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent and the ninth leading cause of death worldwide. A 23-year-old male with a history of tuberculosis treated in Nepal seven years prior, presented to the emergency department with one week of hemoptysis, fever, chills, night sweats and weight loss. A CT scan of the chest showed multiple cavitary lesions at the superior segment of the left lower lobe. He had persistent massive hemoptysis and required b...

Three experimental mineral-doped formulations were prepared (PCL-10CaSi, PCL-5CaSi-5DCPD, PCL-10CaSi-10DCPD); pure PCL scaffolds constituted the control group.Scaffolds were tested fo...

Publication date: Available online 17 April 2019Source: CarbonAuthor(s): Benjamin W. Caplins, Jason D. Holm, Robert R. KellerAbstractA scanning transmission electron diffraction method is developed for use in the scanning electron microscope to perform orientational characterization of 2D materials. The method can generate orientation maps of monolayer graphene over a field of view up to ≈50μm in just a few minutes and can distinguish twisted bilayers from aligned bilayers. This method holds promise to bring electron-diffraction-based orientation measurements of 2D materials to a broader audience.Graphical abstract

KhonikAbstractAssuming that metallic glasses contain interstitial-type defects frozen-in from the melt upon glass production and applying the Interstitialcy theory, we show that temperature dependence of the shear modulus G can be predicted using differential scanning calorimetry data. A specially designed experiment shows that G(T)-dependence can be reconstructed accurate to a few percent.Graphical Abstract

Conclusions: Pups treated with a CSF shunt showed better performance on memory tests. VSCS did not revert demyelination caused by hydrocephalus. Likewise, reactive astrocytosis and cell proliferation over the germinal matrix were not reversed after shunting. Hydrocephalic animals had raised levels of inflammatory interleukins, which returned to normal after treatment.Dev Neurosci
