Fracture Healing
Fracture healing is a process in which the body heals and repairs the broken bone. Requirements for bone healing A requirement for bone healing is vascularity (sufficient blood supply). The nutrient artery supplies 80% of the cortex. The periosteal vessels supply the outer 20% of the cortex. The metaphyseal vessels provide a very rich blood supply to the ends of the bone (Figure 1). Fractures stimulate the release of growth factors that attract stem cells and promote angiogenesis, vasodilation and healing of the bone. Blood flow increases at the fracture site. Metaphyseal bone heals faster than diaphyseal bone because of...

Osteomyelitis
Chronic osteomyelitis is an infection in the bone, which can be an incurable problem (Figure 1). What happens when the bone gets infection (osteomyelitis)? Usually bacteria causes infection in the bone. Leukocytes are attracted to the area and secrete enzymes in attempt to kill the bacteria (Figure 2). Leukocytes are normal white blood cells that defend the body against any outside invaders. Blood flow to the area is decreased, and devitalized necrotic bone is formed called a sequestrum (Figure 3). That sequestrum is an infected dead bone resulting from osteomyelitis. It is a nidus of infection. Haversian canals ...

What is in the Differential Diagnosis of Fatigue?
Discussion Fatigue is a subjective feeling of decreased energy, tiredness or feeling of exhaustion. Lethargy is often used synonymously, but lethargy is a state of being drowsiness or sleepy, and implies mental status changes. Both can cause the person to be apathetic or less active. Fatigue is a common state that almost everyone experiences multiple times in his or her lifetime. For most people it is a relatively acute or short-term chronic problem, often with a relatively easily identifiable problem cause, such as inadequate sleep, acute illness, or overexertion. For some, it can be less readily identifiable such as dep...

Native Valve Endocarditis
Lactococcus garvieae is regarded as a veterinary pathogen, causing hemorrhagic septicemia in fish (1) and mastitis in cows (2). The organism has also been recovered from a variety of dairy products, such as unpasteurized milk (3) and cheese (4–6), as well as various meat products (5,6). L. garvieae is an uncommon cause of human infection, with only a limited number of cases reported worldwide (7–20). Most infections involve either native (7–11) or prosthetic (12–15) heart valves, but cases of osteomyelitis (16–17), hepatic abscess (18), and septicemia (19) have also been documented. (Source: C...

The definition of growing pains used by Peterson in the 2004 study is chronic “…intermittent (nonarticular) pains in both legs that generally occur late in the day or at night…” with a normal physical examination and ...

This review covers findings reported in the English language medical literature up to January of 2013. Despite the emergence of resistant and multidrug-resistant S. aureus, we have seven effective drugs in clinical use for which little resistance has been observed: vancomycin, quinupristin–dalfopristin, linezolid, tigecycline, telavancin, ceftaroline, and daptomycin. However, vancomycin is less effective for infections with MRSA isolates that have a higher MIC w...

What is the Differential Diagnosis of Multiple Fractures?
Discussion Bone mass, size and strength is at its peak in early adulthood. Multiple factors contribute to bone health including bone mass, hormonal balance, nutrition and weight bearing physical activity. Fractures are basically caused by too much force to be withstood by the bone. Abnormal momentary forces commonly occur in sports injuries such as this patient. When a child or young adult has several fractures, particularly clinically significant fractures, the possibility of an unidentified, underlying cause should be considered. According to the International Society for Clinical Densitometry, clinically significant fr...
