Minimally Invasive Achilles Repair Techniques.

Minimally Invasive Achilles Repair Techniques. Orthop Clin North Am. 2020 Jul;51(3):391-402 Authors: Clanton T, Stake IK, Bartush K, Jamieson MD Abstract Achilles tendon rupture is an increasingly common problem with an aging population participating in high-level physical activities. Appropriate treatment has been debated for decades, but good outcomes have been reported after conservative and surgical management. The development of minimally invasive surgical techniques for Achilles repair has reduced the incidence of complications and maintained the high level of function reported after open surgery. The Achilles Midsubstance SpeedBridge repair is a newer minimally invasive technique that has demonstrated promising results and is the authors' preferred treatment of Achilles tendon rupture in athletes and active patients.

This study aimed to identify factors associated with the development of posttraumatic elbow joint contracture. METHODS: A retrospective review of elbow fractures (AO/Orthopaedic Trauma Association [OTA] type 13 and 21) treated at one institution between 2011 and 2015 was performed. Data collected included demographics, injury information, treatment, and postoperative elbow range of motion (ROM). Multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed to identify factors associated with contracture development. Notable contracture was defined as an arc of motion less than 100° flexion/extension, which has been asso...

In-hospital and 30-day mortality rates of endovascular repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA) shows a significant improvement over open surgery although we are not seeing a significant difference at one year. We assess the hypothesis that a greater mural thrombus ratio within the aorta could function as an indicator of post-operative mortality.

Ryoi et  al.1 report the first successful experience with mid term follow up of endovascular thoracic aortic repair for patients with acute retrograde type A intramural haematoma (IMH) with intimal tear in the descending thoracic aorta. In hospital mortality for type A IMH is 40% for medical therapy and 24 % for surgical therapy.2 Open surgery for retrograde type A IMH requires a more extensive aortic replacement to repair the distal intimal tear, which carries higher surgical risk. Since Dake et al.

A 53-year-old male with history of colon cancer status post neoadjuvant chemotherapy, radiation and colectomy, hyperlipidemia, non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, obesity, hernia repair, and asthma presented to the urology clinic complaining of left inguinal swelling. Upon presentation, vital signs were unremarkable, but physical exam revealed a firm, palpable, nontender abnormality of the left inguinal region. Subsequent CT scan with IV contrast revealed a large presacral fluid collection (7.0  × 2.4 cm) and complex cystic structure arising from the left tunica albuginea (3.8 × 3.0 cm) adjacent to...

In conclusion, the use of an ad-hoc designed gene panel combined with pathogenicity assessment of variants allowed the identification of deleterious MMR mutations as well as new LLS candidate causal genes. Constitutional epimutations in non-LS-associated genes are not responsible for LLS.

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Mummolo S, Botticelli G, Quinzi V, Giuca G, Mancini L, Marzo G Abstract Matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) are a family of zinc-dependent endopeptidases, produced by numerous cell types including fibroblasts, endothelial cells, osteoblasts, macrophages, lymphocytes and neutrophils, and capable of degrading different components of the extracellular matrix (ECM), but also cytokines, receptors and factors that regulate cell motility (1). MMPs represent the main proteolytic enzymes involved in the remodeling and degradation of the components of the extracellular matrix, in the modifications of i...
