Buccal vascular malformation with multiple giant phleboliths: a rare case presentation and review of the literature

ConclusionsThe clinic of phlebolith patients is painless swelling and can reach up to 6  cm. The localization is not specific but is found in the masseter and parotid regions generally. Treatment may be invasive or non-invasive depending on, location, accessibility, depth of invasion, age, cosmetic issues, and risk of severe hemorrhage, as with the current case.

AbstractPurposeThe gold standard for intramedullary nailing (IMN) in humeral shaft fracture treatment is bipolar interlocking. The aim of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes in two cohorts of patients treated with IMN with or without distal interlocking. We hypothesized that there was no significant difference between isolated proximal interlocking and bipolar interlocking in terms of consolidation and clinical results.MethodsOne hundred twenty-one acute humeral shaft fractures were retrospectively included in group WDI (without distal interlocking screw,n = 74) or in group DI (with d...

ConclusionThis study demonstrates that a dual offset tapered stem achieved excellent survivorship and stability, as well as good clinical outcome scores with minimal thigh pain and stress shielding in patients with arthritis and developmental dysplasia of the hip; a dual offset tapered stem may be a suitable option for primary total hip arthroplasty in this group.

Conclusions: The presented angular insertion depth prediction method is a first practical approach to support the preoperative selection of cochlear implant electrode arrays. However, the presented procedure is limited in that it is unable to predict the occurrence of insertion results with extracochlear electrodes and requires user training.

This study evaluates the number of incidental findings reported from orthopaedic radiographs ordered in an academic orthopaedic multispecialty group over 1 year. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of 13,948 eligible radiographs recorded at our institution over a 12-month period. Reports were categorized based on examination type. Incidental findings were categorized as having concern for possible malignancy versus likely benign conditions. The possibly malignant findings were then further subdivided into either bone or lung malignancies. The benign findings were subcategorized by etiology and anatomic locati...

Authors: Brubacher JW, Grote CW, Tilley MB Abstract Evaluation of periarticular traumatic wounds for joint penetration is a common clinical concern for orthopaedic surgeons. Wounds that violate the joint capsule can result in deep infection and sepsis. Understanding the anatomic landmarks and capsular extensions of the major joints is key to proper evaluation. Initial evaluation of periarticular wounds includes thorough examination of the wound and plain radiographs. Historically, the saline load test has been the diagnostic test of choice for assessing traumatic arthrotomy; however, CT has recently been shown to h...

Authors: Lyudmer M, Levy BJ, Holtzman AJ, Sankaranarayanan S, Tabeayo E, Gruson KI Abstract INTRODUCTION: Plain radiographs of the shoulder are routinely obtained for patients presenting with atraumatic shoulder pain, although the diagnostic utility of this imaging modality is unclear. Despite this, patients often prefer to obtain radiographs and may associate them with a more satisfactory visit. METHODS: New patients presenting with atraumatic shoulder pain were provided with information regarding the potential advantages and disadvantages of plain radiographs as part of their visit. Patients then decided whet...

In conclusion, enchondroma growth was a rare event and typically occurred at two years follow-up in our series. Given the low risk for malignant transformation, we propose surveillance with plain radiographic follow-up for stable enchondromas every 3-6 months for the first year and then annually for at least three years of total follow-up. The most significant costs savings can be made by limiting MRI imaging in the absence of clinical or radiographic concern. Additional studies are needed to determine the long-term risk of growth or declaration of chondrosarcoma.Level of Evidence: IV. PMID: 31413693 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Our study suggests CT may be adequate to rule out hip and pelvic fractures in this patient population. CT may be preferable to MRI based on decreased time spent in the ED and the large percentage of elderly patients with contraindications to MRI.Level of Evidence: III.
