Conclusion: Being edentulous was not an important factor for the length of the styloid process and the likelihood of symptoms that might develop.

Background: In pediatric patients, the presentation of the nontraumatic acutely painful joint/limb poses a diagnostic dilemma due to the similarity of presentations of the most likely diagnoses [septic arthritis (SA), transient synovitis (TS), osteomyelitis]. Current tools employed to differentiate these diagnoses rely on nonspecific inflammatory markers, radiologic imaging, and arthrocentesis. Diagnostic algorithms utilizing these clinical, radiographic, and biochemical parameters have produced conflicting results. The purpose of this study was to identify a serum-based inflammatory signature which can differentiate S...

Conclusions: The incidence of sports-related CSI requiring surgery is low with differences in age/sex, sport, and injury patterns. Older males with hyperflexion/axial loading injuries in contact sports were at greatest risk of SCI, complications, and permanent disability. Prevention campaigns, education on proper tackling techniques, and neck strength training are required in sports at high risk of hyperflexion/axial loading injury. Level of Evidence: Level III—retrospective cohort study.

Conclusions: Entire-spine MRI for nonpreoperative indications including pain, abnormal radiographic curve appearance, and rapid curve progression has minimal utility for patients with AIS. For patients with neurological complaints, the NND a potentially treatment-altering finding with MRI is 34.4. Level of Evidence: Level II—diagnostic.

Conclusion: DT is more accurate than conventional radiography (both AP and axial views) and as accurate as CT in assessing millimeters of displacement of medial epicondyle fracture fragments. Level of Evidence: Level IV—diagnostic study.

Background: The Pavlik method for the treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) has been proven successful for over 85 years. The high success rate and reproducibility have made it the mainstay of treatment. Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients with DDH treated with the Pavlik method between September 2016 and August 2018 with at least 24 months of follow up in a single academic center. We excluded patients with neuromuscular conditions, teratologic dislocations, and arthrogryposis. We identified and included a total of 307 patients in the analysis. There were 66 patients wi...

This study sought to report on a single surgeon’s outcomes for core decompression with BMAC injection in pediatric patients with AVN of the femoral head secondary to underlying SCD. Methods: A single-center, retrospective review was performed for pediatric patients undergoing core decompression with BMAC injection for femoral head AVN in patients with SCD with a minimum of 12-month follow-up. Demographic, radiographic, and clinical variable were collected. Patients were subdivided based upon presence of open femoral physes at the time of surgery. Successful treatment was defined as the ability to return to act...

This study intends to report functional outcomes of arthroscopic os trigonum excision in adolescents who failed conservative management, with the hypothesis that these younger patients would have similar, successful outcomes of adult patients. Methods: A retrospective study was performed on adolescents who underwent arthroscopic os trigonum excision at a single institution between 2011 and 2017. Patient demographic, clinical history, radiographic, and operative data were documented. Outcome measures included the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM) score comprised of the Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Sports ...

by Kazushige Koyama, Kanichiro Wada, Gentaro Kumagai, Hitoshi Kudo, Sunao Tanaka, Toru Asari, Songee Jung, Masataka Ando, Yasuyuki Ishibashi Lumbar degenerative disease and dementia are increasing in super-aging societies and are both related to physical dysfunction and pain. However, the relationship between these diseases remains unclear. This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the comorbidity rates of lumbar spinal canal ste nosis (LSS) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and clarify the association between LSS presence, lumbar symptoms, and quality of life (QOL) related to low back pain and cognitive impairmen...
