Incidental Radiographic Detection of a Foreign Body in the Nose of a Child
Purpose of review Acute ankle sprains frequently occur in active children and adolescents but may be the initial clinical presentation of other less common disorders affecting the lower extremities. There are many conditions that may cause one or multiple episodes of ankle injury that are misdiagnosed as an acute ankle sprain. This manuscript highlights diagnoses that should be considered when evaluating and managing a child or adolescent who presents initially and/or repeatedly with an acute ankle sprain. Recent findings In recent years, various studies have continued to note the prevalence of misdiagnosed ankl...
Conclusions Our AI system matched RRs' performance, meanwhile significantly outperformed NRRs' diagnostic accuracy for most of considered CXR pathologies (pneumothorax, pleural effusion, and lung lesions) and therefore might serve as clinical decision support for NRRs.
Jean Hatchet's ordeal began in November 2017 when a male radiographer carried out a 'rough' internal scan - and failed to spot tumours that had developed in her ovaries.
AbstractObjectivesIdentifying early markers of poor prognosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is mandatory. Our purpose is to analyze by chest radiography if rapid worsening of COVID-19 pneumonia in the initial days has predictive value for ventilatory support (VS) need.MethodsAmbispective observational ethically approved study in COVID-19 pneumonia inpatients, validated in a second outpatient sample. Brixia score (BS) was applied to the first and second chest radiography required for suspected COVID-19 pneumonia to determine the predictive capacity of BS worsening for VS need. Intraclass correlation coefficient (IC...
ConclusionAt mid-term follow-up, no differences in functional outcomes were detected depending on the stem fixation technique. Cemented stems, however, have a complication rate (including stem loosening) significantly higher than press-fit stems.
ConclusionsOur clinical results suggest that cement-augmented TFNA screws can be successfully used in the management of trochanteric fractures in patients > 65 years of age.
The objective was to evaluate whether the length ratio between the second and the third metatarsals after Weil osteotomy influences clinical outcomes. This retrospective study included 37 patients (53 feet). Preoperative planning consisted of keeping the second metatarsal greater than or equal to the third metatarsal after Weil osteotomy of the second metatarsal or the second and third metatarsals. Based on postoperative weight-bearing and digital AP radiographs after Weil osteotomy, we divided the patients into two groups: group 1, the second metatarsal was longer than or equal to the third metatarsal; and group 2, the se...
This study evaluates the accuracy of CNNs in the detection of metallic objects on DRs as an MRI screening tool.
ConclusionThe interpretation of UPIC in revision TKA is of utmost importance since the decision whether to treat a UPIC as an unsuspected PJI has a major impact on implant survival and re-revision rate. Different criteria are used to differentiate between unsuspected PJI and contamination in true aseptic failure, and the heterogeneity amongst the included papers impedes to state a clear recommendation, integrating not only quantitative findings, but also qualitative data such as virulence of the identified microorganism.Level of evidenceSystematic review, III.
This study provides important prognostic information in counseling geriatric patient with an open lower extremity fracture, as well as informs treatment in terms of wound surveillance and care in the postoperative period.
