Posterior shoulder fracture-dislocation: A systematic review of the literature and current aspects of management.
CONCLUSION: The management of posterior shoulder fracture-dislocation may be challenging, and the best surgical option depends on many variables such as the chronicity of the injury, the presence of a fracture at the level of the surgical neck or tuberosities and the extend of the Hill-Sachs lesion if any. A treatment algorithm is proposed, based on the current literature in an effort to create a consensus for these injuries. For the acute shoulder fracture-dislocations, an open reduction should be performed. For the chronic fracture/dislocations in the elderly low-demand patients should be treated conservatively. For the ...

Expanding the horizons of clinical applications of proximal humerus locking plates in the lower extremities: A technical note.
Abstract Pre-contoured anatomical locking plates were designed to address the clinical need of fixing small epiphyseal segments with a larger number of screws. Those plates match the contour and shape of a variety of bones allowing for optimal buttress properties. The aim of this manuscript is to highlight the benefits of applying proximal humerus locking plates in the fixation of lower extremity bones. Although designed for the proximal humerus, the low-profile plate shape and anatomic contour also provides versatile use in certain areas of the lower extremity. This technical narrative highlights the versatile an...

From H1N1 to 2019-nCoV, what do we learn?
Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic is still raging across the world. Everyday thousands of infected people lost their lives. What's worse, there is no specific medicine and we do not know when the end of the pandemic will come. The nearest global pandemic is the 1918 influenza, which caused about 50 million deaths and partly terminate the World WarⅠ. We believe that no matter the virus H1N1 for the 1918 influenza or 2019-nCoV for COVID-19, they are essentially the same and the final cause of death is sepsis. The definition and diagnostic/management criteria of sepsis have been modified several times but the mortalit...

Paediatric conjoint bicondylar Hoffa fracture with patellar tendon injury: An unusual pattern of injury.
Abstract Epiphyseal injuries of distal femur are rare with an incidence of 1%-6% among all physeal injuries. Prompt diagnosis and appropriate surgical treatment is crucial to achieve satisfactory functional outcomes. A conjoint bicondylar coronal split (Hoffa) fracture with complete transaction of ipsilateral patellar tendon has been reported in a 12 year old child. The injury was managed by open reduction and internal fixation and bone to tendon repair. This case emphasizes the need of accurate intraepiphyseal fixation for the management of these fractures in skeletally immature patients. PMID: 31230844 [Pub...

Barriers and facilitators of implementing child injury surveillance system.
CONCLUSION: The most important barrier is lack of national policy in child injury prevention. The most important facilitator is improving MOHME function through passing supportive regulations. Effective data usage and dissemination of information to those requiring data for policy making can help reduce child injuries. Coalition of stakeholders helps overcome existing barriers.
