Medial Epicondyle Fractures: Current Practices and Preferences Between SLAOTI Members (Sociedad Latinoamericana de Ortopedia y Traumatología Infantil)

Conclusions: There are significant differences in opinions between SLAOTI members as to the optimal management of medial epicondyle fractures. Implications of disagreement in evaluation and treatment support the need for multicenter prospective studies to develop evidence-based guidelines for the management of this fracture. Level of evidence: Level V—expert opinion. Cross-sectional electronic survey.

Authors: Jiang ZZ, He C, Wang DQ, Shen HL, Sun JL, Gan WN, Lu JY, Liu XT Abstract In December 2019, an outbreak of coronavirus infection emerged in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China, which is now named Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The outbreak spread rapidly within mainland China and globally. This paper reviews the different imaging modalities used in the diagnosis and treatment process of COVID-19, such as chest radiography, computerized tomography (CT) scan, ultrasound examination, and positron emission tomography (PET/CT) scan. A chest radiograph is not recommended as a first-line imaging modality for COVI...

Angelis Carlo A minimally invasive implant treatment approach for future full arch implant prosthetic rehabilitations of trophic jaws represents a challenge. An optimal implant planning is strongly related with an accurate merge of the prosthetic information and the radiographic data. To comply with that, most computer aided implantology (CAI) systems require additional steps, as radiographic stents or fiducial markers to overlap digital jaw scans to cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) data. Using dynamic CAI, residual teeth (up to three) make it possible for the merge to avoid new radiographic scans. An addition...

Computed tomography (CT) numbers are used in radiological diagnosis, attenuation correction and radiotherapy treatment planning. Modern CT scanners use iterative reconstruction methods instead of the traditional filtered back projection (FBP). Hence, the investigation of CT number accuracy with image reconstruction techniques and X-ray tube potential (kVp) used in CT is warranted. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of Sinogram Affirmed Iterative Reconstruction (SAFIRE) Technique and image acquisition at different tube potentials on CT numbers of different tissue equivalent materials.

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a new minimally invasive surgical technique for the reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) with fascia lata allograft at 60-month minimum follow-up.MethodsNineteen consecutive patients with chronic recurrent patellar dislocation were treated with MPFL reconstruction (53% isolate procedure, 47% in combination with other treatments). Seventeen patients (11 males/6 females) were available at 60-month follow-up and were clinically evaluated with validated scores. New episodes of patellar dislocation were considered failures. Radiographic ...

arodi K Abstract The empirical conversion of the treatment planning X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) image to ion stopping power relative to water causes dose calculation inaccuracies in ion beam therapy. A patient-specific calibration of the CT image is enabled by the combination of an ion radiography (iRad) with the forward-projection of the empirically converted CT image along the estimated ion trajectories. This work investigated the patient-specific CT calibration for list-mode and integration-mode detector configurations, with reference to a ground truth ion CT (iCT) image. Analytical simulations of idealized ...

Conclusions: Chest CT scores correlate well with risk factors for mortality over periods, thus they may be used as a prognostic indicator in COVID-19. While higher chest CT scores are associated with a higher mortality rate, CT images taken at least 6 days since symptom onset may contain more prognostic information than images taken at an earlier period.

Authors: Saluja M, Pillai D, Jeliya S, Bauddh N, Chandel R Abstract Background: Since December 2019, we have been facing one of the worst pandemics of human history. It originated from the Hubei province in China as a case of pneumonia, later named COVID-19.1 The causative pathogen, a new enveloped betacoronavirus2 is now known as Severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus-2 (SARS-CoV 2). India reported its first case of COVID19, on 30th January 2020. We aim to identify the defining clinical and radiological characteristics, severity and prognosis, along with impact of age on outcome. Methods: Cross section...

In conclusion, we show that rhBMP6/ABC at a dose of 100 μg/mL accelerated bone healing in patients undergoing HTO without serious adverse even ts and with a good tolerability compared with placebo alone. Overall, for the first time, a BMP‐based osteogenic implant was examined against a placebo for bone healing efficacy in the trabecular bone surface, using an objective bone mineral density measurement system. © 2020 The Authors.Journal of Bone and Mineral Research published by American Society for Bone and Mineral Research.

AbstractBone health in children with osteogenesis imperfecta is monitored using radiographs and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, which have limitations. High-resolution peripheral quantitative CT can non-invasively derive bone microarchitectural data. Children with severe osteogenesis imperfecta have fragile deformed bones, and positioning for this scan can be difficult. We assessed the feasibility of high-resolution peripheral quantitative CT in nine children aged 9 –15 years with osteogenesis imperfecta and compared results with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and with healthy controls. All nine recruited ch...
