Conclusions: In our series, 36% of the concurrent distal tibial fractures were not diagnosed until chart review for this study, which suggests the need for ankle-specific imaging in certain patients. We recommend ankle-specific imaging when an oblique or spiral tibial shaft fracture is located at the junction of the middle and distal thirds of the tibia or in patients in whom a distal tibial fracture is suspected because of pain, swelling, or bruising. Level of Evidence: Level III—retrospective comparative study.

Authors: Bianchini MA, Galarraga-Vinueza ME, Bedoya KA, Correa BB, de Souza Magini R, Schwarz F Abstract Implantoplasty has been claimed as a promising strategy to treat peri-implantitis and prevent progressive peri-implant bone loss. Consequently, the aim of the present case series is to exhibit the clinical outcomes of a 3-year-follow-up resective and implantoplasty therapy applying a novel platform-switch concept to preserve peri-implant tissue integrity and counteract progressive bone loss. Four patients who underwent dental implant therapy and were diagnosed with peri-implantitis were treated through access fl...

We present the case of a young woman with bilateral osteonecrosis of the femoral head at varying stages of progression; we also highlight other important comorbid complications (eg, chronic pain requiring long-term opioids, debility, and social isolation) and postoperative outcomes. In this review, partly based on recommendations on osteonecrosis management from the 2014 evidence-based report on sickle cell disease from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institutes, we also discuss early signs or symptoms of osteonecrosis of the femoral head, radiographic diagnosis and staging criteria, hydroxyurea effect on progression to...

This study involved 102 patients who underwent indirect decompression at 136 levels, with LLIF and posterior fixation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) were collected preoperatively and several times postoperatively (over a 2-year period starting immediately after surgery). We then quantified the cross-sectional areas of the thecal sac and ligamentum flavum, as well as the anteroposterior diameter of disc bulging, and qualitatively assessed lumbar spinal stenosis according to a modified version of Schizas’ classification [Grades A (mild) to C (severe)]. The Japanese Orthopaedic Association Back Pain Evaluation Quest...

Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. The aim of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients who underwent stand-alone lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) to those who underwent posterolateral fusion (PLF) for symptomatic adjacent segment disease (ASD). Summary of Background Data. Recent studies have suggested that LLIF can successfully treat ASD; however, there are no studies to date that compare LLIF with the traditional open PLF in this cohort. Methods. A total of 47 consecutive patients who underwent LLIF or PLF for symptomatic ASD between January 2007 and Augus...

The MIRAgel (hydrogel) scleral buckle, introduced in the 1980s, was a novel material to repair retinal detachments. It was later discontinued due to the frequency of long-term complications related to buckle hydrolysis and expansion. These complications included pain, limited extraocular motility, and more serious complications such as infection or scleral perforation, which ultimately necessitated surgical extraction as late as 20 –30 years after placement. Prompt and proper diagnosis and treatment is often delayed as these buckle-associated complications frequently mimic other orbital pathologies such as tumors or infections.

​Fingertip injuries and amputations are common in the emergency department, often occurring on weekends when consultants are not available. Some experienced physicians may consider rongeuring distal tuft amputation injuries, but simple closure and expert consultation for more difficult cases are suggested.A fingertip amputation within zone III involving total amputation of the distal tip, fingernail, matrix, and tuft. Photos by M. Roberts.Care of fingertip amputations in the ED should focus on removing debris and cleaning the wound as best as possible, closing the wound using available skin, bandaging and splinting for c...

Conclusions: The modified LRTI procedure provided significant subjective and objective improvements without severe complications particularly related to the harvesting of the PL tendon. This procedure is a valuable surgical option for trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis and could be a useful salvage modality if the FCR tendon ruptures during the conventional LRTI procedure.
