Contemporaneous avulsion fractures of the inferior clivus and bilateral occipital condyles with injury of the tectorial membrane.

Conclusion: Bilateral condyle fractures with a concomitant inferior clivus fracture are rare, and there is no known optimal strategy. Here, in an intact patient, instability of the CCJ warranted an O-C2 fusion. PMID: 31966930 [PubMed]

Authors: Chen SY, Wu WF, Di C, Zhao XX Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation between carotid artery stenosis (CAS) measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the coronary stenosis (CS) determined by computed tomography angiography (CTA). METHODS: In this prospective study, 42 subjects diagnosed with coronary artery disease (CAD) underwent MRI and CTA examinations. The severity degree and number of CAS, the score, detection rate and type of carotid plaque, and also the severity degree and number of CS were assessed. Spearman's rank correlation test was used to evaluate the correlation between ...

Men with clinical suspicion of PCa undergo tissue sampling and based on features including the Gleason score, Prostate Specific antigen (PSA) levels and clinical tumor (T) stage, patients are risk stratified into 6 major groups based on National Comprehensive Cancer Netwo...

Conclusion The addition of arthrography to single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography of wrist, ankle, and knee joints leads to supplementary visibility of lesions of cartilage, ligaments, triangular fibrocartilage complex, meniscus, or loose bodies in 77% of joints. Single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography arthrography can serve as promising alternative especially in patients with magnetic resonance imaging contraindications or metallic hardware.

çoise Kraeber-Bodere Multiple myeloma (MM) is always preceded by an initial monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) that then develops into asymptomatic or smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM), which constitutes an intermediate clinical stage between MGUS and MM. According to a recent study, risk factors for faster MGUS to MM progression include an M protein of 1.5 g/dL or more and an abnormal free light chain ratio in patients with non-IgM MGUS. Therefore, the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) decided to recommend whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) for patients with high-risk MGUS in ...

CONCLUSIONS: SE represents a marker for possible cognitive dysfunction, and follow-up with neuropsychological assessment and cognitive rehabilitation seems warranted in most patients. Complex problem-solving abilities with high general sensitivity to brain impairment showed the most prominent reduction. Otherwise, no specific profile of domain affection was found. Structural brain lesions and duration of SE over 30 min represent risk factors for cognitive deficit. PMID: 32064506 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Oz, Kavita Bhavan, Lawrence A. LaveryAbstractThe aim of this study was to report clinical outcomes of moderate and severe foot infections in patients without diabetes. Medical records of 88 nondiabetic patients with foot infections treated at a safety net hospital were retrospectively reviewed. Patients were grouped by the presence of soft-tissue infection (STI) or osteomyelitis (OM). The diagnosis of OM was determined by positive bone cu...

ConclusionsPartial lateral meniscus anterior root injury during anatomical single-bundle ACL reconstruction was suspected in 18% of cases. Patient height and the distance between bony landmarks were significantly shorter in the injury group than in the intact group. Surgeons should understand that even a slight deviation of the tibial tunnel position can lead to partial lateral meniscus anterior root injury in patients with small skeletons.Level of evidenceIV.
