The Incidence of Posterior Malleolar Involvement in Distal Spiral Tibia Fractures: Is it Higher than We Think?
Conclusions: There is a high incidence of concomitant, ipsilateral fractures of the posterior malleolus in patients presenting with operative distal-third, spiral fractures of the tibia. A preoperative ankle computed tomography should be strongly considered in all cases with this specific fracture morphology. Level of Evidence: Diagnostic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence. (Source: Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma)

Biomechanical Assessment of Locking Plate Fixation of Comminuted Proximal Olecranon Fractures
Conclusions: The ultimate strength of comminuted olecranon fracture fixation with a PLP decreases significantly if the fracture is proximal to the midpoint of the trochlear notch. Fractures proximal to the midpoint of the trochlear notch may benefit from supplemental fixation or suture augmentation to prevent failure, particularly at force ranges higher than those experienced during active elbow range of motion.

Interventions to Improve Maternal-Infant Relationships in Mothers With Postpartum Mood Disorders
Introduction: During the postpartum period, women may have changes in their mental health and experience postpartum mood disorders. Postpartum depression (PPD) is an especially prevalent postpartum mood disorder, affecting 10% to 15% of new mothers. Although PPD has detrimental effects on women's health, it can also affect maternal–infant attachment, bonding, and interaction, which influence the maternal–infant relationship and can lead to poor outcomes for infants later in life. The purpose of this review is to identify effective strategies for improving the maternal–infant relationship for mothers wit...

Surviving a transfixing gunshot wound to the head 70 years ago
AbstractSurviving a gunshot wound to the head is a rare event, particularly in the past when medical treatment was much less advanced than it is today. Moreover, the finding of such a case as an identified specimen within a museum collection is even more uncommon. This led us to report on this unique case in this paper as it poses a challenge to forensic anthropology and provides a unique educational oppourtunity. The skull from the Collection at the Cranium Museum in the Department of Morphology and Genetic at the Federal University of S ão Paulo (UNIFESP) dates back to 1946. For trauma registration the bone locati...

Highly stable activated carbon composite material to selectively capture gas-phase elemental mercury from smelting flue gas: Copper polysulfide modification
In this study, a new sorbent, copper polysulfide modification activated carbon (CuxSy@AC), was synthesized. CuxSy@AC demonstrated better Hg0 capture performance than copper-impregnated (Cu@AC) and sulfur-modified (S@AC) materials. The mercury adsorption capacity of CuxSy@AC from high-concentration SO2 smelting flue gas could reach 3924 μg/g in optimal conditions, and this adsorption capacity was superior to that of common modified sorbents. The physical and chemical characteristics of CuxSy@AC were analyzed through several characterization methods, including X-ray diffraction, Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surfac...

The infrapatellar fat pad is a dynamic and mobile structure, which deforms during knee motion, and has proximal extensions which wrap around the patella
ConclusionProximal IFP extensions are a novel description. The IFP is a dynamic structure, displacing significantly during knee motion, which is, therefore, vulnerable to interference from trauma or repetitive overload. Given that this trauma is often surgical, it may be appropriate that surgeons learn to minimize injury to the fat pad at surgery. (Source: Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy)

Early part-time sick leave results in considerable savings in social security costs at national level: an analysis based on a quasi-experiment in Finland.
Conclusions Part-time instead of full-time sick leave, at the early stage of work disability due to musculoskeletal diseases or mental disorders, leads to considerable social security cost savings during two years, in correspondence with increased work participation and in addition to earlier reported health benefits. Part-time sick leave can be recommended from an economic perspective; however more consideration should be given to women with musculoskeletal diseases.
