Summary: Osteocutaneous reconstruction can be challenging because of concomitant injuries and limited donor sites. There is a paucity of data on limb salvage outcomes following combined soft-tissue reconstruction and bone transport or Masquelet procedures. The authors reviewed a consecutive series of open tibia fracture patients undergoing soft-tissue reconstruction with either distraction osteogenesis or Masquelet technique. Endpoints were perioperative flap complications and bone union. Fourteen patients with Gustilo type IIIB open tibia fractures were included. Half of the group received muscle flaps and the remaining...

Conclusions: Volar plate osteosynthesis of distal radius fractures is associated with an overall low complication rate. Patient factors, including diabetes mellitus and obesity, and intraoperative factors, including intraarticular fracture alignment and plate prominence, were associated with a higher rate of complications or revision surgery. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Risk, III.

We present a case of a 51 ‐year‐old Japanese woman diagnosed with eosinophilic granulomatous polyangiitis (EGPA), a rare vasculitis that can occur in patients with eosinophilia and history of asthma, allergic rhinitis, and sinusitis, with immunoglobulin (Ig) G4 hypergammaglobulinaemia and salivary gland swelling. AbstractA 51 ‐year‐old woman was admitted to our hospital for cough, fever, purpura in the legs, and salivary gland swelling. Six years ago, she had been diagnosed with bronchial asthma and was treated with a combination of inhaled corticosteroid and long‐acting beta2‐agonist. Blood examination showed ...

The objectives of this review were to; 1) identify comfort interventions used for clinical procedures that involve sustained inactivity similar to radiotherapy; 2) define characteristics of comfort interventions for future practice; and 3) determine the effectiveness of identified comfort int erventions.

ConclusionBoth tibial spine width/notch outlet length and tibial spine width/notch width index were significantly smaller in the ACL tear group when compared with the ACL intact group. The occurrence of ACL injury influenced by the variance in width between the tibial spine and the femoral intercondylar notch.Level of evidenceIII.

AbstractPurposeThe primary aim of this study was to investigate the potential benefit of stress radiographs for diagnosis of unstable total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and to identify clinically relevant cut-off values to differentiate between unstable and stable TKAs.MethodsData of 40 patients with 49 cruciate retaining (CR) TKA who underwent stress radiographs as part of the diagnostic algorithm in a painful knee clinic were prospectively collected. Anterior and posterior stress radiographs were done in 90 ° and 15° flexion, varus-valgus stress radiographs in 0° and 30° knee flexion. Knee laxity was measured ...

Conclusion:The observed prevalence of 32.1% for IFs of any type underscores the need for a dental practitioner to review the entire DPR when a patient presents for an initial dental examination (or check-up) or for dental hygiene. Only a single IF (a central giant cell granuloma) provoked alarm, as it was initially considered malignant. Similarly, impacted teeth and suspected cysts need careful evaluation upon discovery to determine how they may be optimally managed.

Abstract Aspergilloma, also known as mycetoma or fungus ball, is the most common manifestation of pulmonary involvement by Aspergillus species. The fungal ball typically forms within preexisting cavities of the lungs. Diagnosis requires both radiographic evidence along with serologic or microbiologic evidence of Aspergillus species involvement. While clinical features such as hemoptysis, chest pain, shortness of breath, cough, and fever are helpful in diagnosis, they are non-specific symptoms. Surgery is currently the mainstay of treatment for aspergilloma but is associated with considerable mortality and morbidit...
