Pediatric navicular dorsal osteochondroma: a rare case of navicular–cuneiform impingement

We present an exceptionally rare case of tarsal navicular dorsal osteochondroma diagnosed in an 11-year-old female child affected by chronic foot pain. Radiographs, MRI, and computed tomography scan revealed bony excrescences extending outward from the navicular bone. After conservative treatment failed, the navicular dorsal exostosis was excised in open surgery with complete resolution of symptoms. Navicular–cuneiform impingement was diagnosed by instrumental and intraoperative techniques. Histological analysis confirmed the diagnosis of navicular dorsal osteochondroma. This case report illustrates the necessity of particularly rigorous evaluation of the substrates of pediatric chronic foot pain.

Authors: Sun PO, Schyns MVP, Walbeehm ET Abstract Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most frequently operated neurological disorder of the hand. Incidence of patients remaining symptomatic has been reported up to 30% after primary release. Revision surgery remains challenging although multiple surgical options have been described. In this case series a simple novel technique, the palmaris longus interposition, is described for the treatment of recurrent and persistent CTS. Patients who underwent PLI between October 2013 and 2018 and without underlying neurological or hand disorders severely affecting the operated ...

Conclusion: It was demonstrated that λ/2- and λ/4-pitch configurations result in better LR and contrast than λ-pitch configuration. Significance: Based on the results obtained, the proposed method has the potential to serve as an easy-to-integrate and simple way of achieving better image quality without requiring to increase the system complexity with existing transducer array probe technology in regular clinical- scanners.

Nonintubated thoracic surgery arose as supplemental evolution of minimally invasive surgery and is gaining popularity. A proper nonintubated thoracic surgery unit is mandatory and should involve surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, physiotherapists, psychologists, and scrub and ward nurses. Surgical training should involve experienced and young surgeons. It deserves a step-by-step approach and consolidated experience on video-assisted thoracic surgery. Due to difficulty in reproducing lung and diaphragm movements, training with simulation systems may be of scant value; instead, preceptorships and invited...

Wedge resection in peripheral lung cancer is considered a suboptimal procedure. However, in elderly and/or frail patients it is a reliable and safer alternative. This procedure can be easily performed under nonintubated anesthesia, allowing the recruitment of patients considered otherwise marginal for a surgical treatment. Nonintubated anesthesia can reduce lung trauma, operative time, postoperative morbidity, hospital stay, and global expenses. Furthermore, nonintubated anesthesia produces less immunologic impairment and this may affect postoperative oncological long-term results. Wedge lung resection through nonintubated...

CONCLUSION: Osteochondromas are rarely symptomatic in skeletally mature patients. While most are benign with a very low risk of malignant transformation, surgical excision can yield excellent results and significant pain relief in symptomatic patients. PMID: 31572670 [PubMed]

Rationale: The scapula is relatively rare site for osteochondroma. Scapula osteochondroma is usually asymptomatic, however it may present with features such as pseudowinging, snapping scapula, bursa formation, chronic pain, and cosmetic deformities. To our best knowledge, this is the first report in the English literature about osteochondroma of ventral scapula associated with chest pain due to rib cage compression. Patient concerns: A 14-year-old boy was transferred to the orthopedic clinic from thoracic surgery department with a complaint of intermittent, dull, and diffuse aching pain around left chest wall and back...
