Growth Disturbance Following Intra-articular Distal Radius Fractures in the Skeletally Immature Patient

Conclusions: Intra-articular distal radius fractures in skeletally immature patients have a considerably higher rate of physeal growth arrest than extra-articular physeal fractures. Following acute management aimed at restoring and preserving anatomic physeal and articular alignment, follow-up radiographs should be obtained to evaluate for physeal arrest in skeletally immature children. Patients and families should be counseled regarding the high rate of growth disturbance and the potential need for deformity correction in the future, particularly in younger children. Level of Evidence: IV—case series.

CONCLUSIONS: To osteoporotic thoracolumbar burst fracture is absolutely not a contraindication to percutaneous kyphoplasty. Percutaneous kyphoplasty can obtain satisfactory effectiveness for the treatment of osteoporotic thoracolumbar burst fractures. Complications can be effectively decreased by meticulous evaluation, careful manipulation, and appropriate precautionary measures.PMID:34554685

by Seok Woo Hong, Ki Tae Park, Yoon-Sok Chung, Yong Jun Choi, Jeong-Hyun Kang The purpose of the present study was to reveal the relationship between degenerative changes in the cervical spine, head and neck postures, neck pain, and bone mineral density (BMD) of the total hip, femoral neck, and lumbar spine in post-menopausal females. In total, 116 females (mean age 60.4 ± 7.1 years; age range 50–80 years) were included. Participants were classified into three groups based on the T-score criteria of the total hip, femoral neck, and lumbar spine set by World Health Organization, respectively. The degree of nec...

In this study, the authors' aim was to assess the impact of spondylolisthesis reduction on 24-month PRO measures after decompression and fusion surgery for Meyerding grade I degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis.METHODS: The Quality Outcomes Database (QOD) was queried for patients undergoing posterior lumbar fusion for spondylolisthesis with a minimum 24-month follow-up, and quantitative correlation between Meyerding slippage reduction and PROs was performed. Baseline and 24-month PROs, including the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), EQ-5D, Numeric Rating Scale (NRS)-back pain (NRS-BP), NRS-leg pain (NRS-LP), and satisfacti...
