Research and application of absorbable screw in orthopedics: a clinical review comparing PDLLA screw with metal screw in patients with simple medial malleolus fracture. (2/6)OBJECTIVE: To observe the therapeutic effect of absorbable screw in medial malleolus fracture and discuss its clinical application in orthopedics. METHODS: A total of 129 patients with simple medial malleolus fracture were studied. Among them, 64 patients were treated with poly-D, L-lactic acid (PDLLA) absorbable screws, while the others were treated with metal screws. All the patients were followed up for 12-20 months (averaged 18.4 months) and the therapeutic effect was evaluated according to the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society clinical rating systems. RESULTS: In absorbable screw group, we obtained excellent and good results in 62 cases (96.88%); in steel screw group, 61 cases (93.85%) achieved excellent and good results. There was no significant difference between the two groups. CONCLUSION: In the treatment of malleolus fracture, absorbable screw can achieve the same result compared with metal screw fixation. Absorbable screw is preferred due to its advantages of safety, cleanliness and avoiding the removal procedure associated with metallic implants. (+info)
Orthopaedic surgeon's nightmare: iatrogenic fractures of talus and medial malleolus following tibial nailing. (3/6)Intramedullary interlocking nailing is the gold standard for treatment of tibial shaft fractures. The growing use of intramedullary nailing has resulted in an increased number of tibial nailing in daily clinical practice. Despite adequate surgeon experience, tibial nailing is not without complications if proper techniques are not followed. A case of iatrogenic talar neck and medial malleolus fractures during intramedullary nailing of tibia in a 24-year-old male is reported. It is believed to be caused by forceful hammering of insertion zig with foot dorsiflexed. To the best of our knowledge, no such case has been reported in the literature. It is possible to reduce the risk of this complication by adoption of preventive measures. (+info)
Bosworth fracture-dislocation of the ankle: a case report. (4/6)Bosworth fracture-dislocation of the ankle is a rare injury in which the proximal fibular fragment is entrapped behind the tibia. Closed reduction is extremely difficult to achieve. Early open reduction and internal fixation enables a better outcome by minimising soft-tissue damage. We report on a 36-year-old man who underwent open reduction and internal fixation for a Bosworth fracture-dislocation of the ankle complicated by severe soft-tissue swelling and an impending risk of skin necrosis after failed closed reduction.

3D model analysis of existing CT syndesmosis measurements. (5/6)INTRODUCTION: Use of Computed Tomography (CT) to evaluate syndesmotic reduction following injury has significantly increased in recent years. The aim of this study was to compare existing clinical measurements of syndesmotic reduction to gold standard measurements of fibular motion obtained from a full 3D model. METHODS: Three common clinical measures for assessing syndesmotic congruity on axial CT slices were identified in the literature. Each measure was manually performed on 170 cadaveric ankle CT scans obtained with variable degrees of simulated syndesmotic displacement. Clinical measures were assessed for intraobserver and interobserver reliability and compared to objective measures of true medial/lateral and anterior/posterior translation and fibular rotation that were obtained from a 3D model. Pearson correlation coefficients (PCC) were computed to determine which clinical measurements were most accurate for describing syndesmotic motion obtained from the 3D model. RESULTS: All three clinical measurement techniques demonstrated good to excellent interobserver and intraobserver reliability. Medial/lateral displacement of the fibula was best correlated with the difference between the anterior and posterior tibiofibular joint space measurements described by Elgafy et al (PCC = 0.29 small correlation). Anterior/posterior displacement of the fibula was well correlated with the anterior/posterior measurement described by Phisitkul et al (PCC = 0.69 large correlation). Fibular rotation was best correlated with the average of the Elgafy anterior and posterior tibiofibular joint space measurements (PCC = 0.33, moderate correlation). Proximal/ distal displacement of the lateral malleolus was best correlated with the Elgafy posterior tibiofibular joint space measurement (PCC = 0.49, moderate correlation). DISCUSSION: While the clinical measurements were adequately reproducible, they showed only moderate to small correlations with the 3D measurements of movement of the fibula in the longitudinal, medial/lateral or rotational directions. The only fibular translation measured by the 3D model that was well described by the three clinical measures was fibular movement in the anterior/ posterior direction. This work demonstrates a need for improved clinical measurements of syndesmotic congruity on axial CT scans to serve as surrogates for the true movement of the fibula. (+info)
Combined ankle and talus fractures--a case report. (6/6)A 50-year-old male patient sustained a supination-adduction type ankle fracture with an associated sagittal split fracture of the talus. The patient was treated initially in a short leg splint, and upon presentation to an orthopaedic surgeon, an external fixator was applied. After the soft tissue swelling improved enough to permit open reduction and internal fixation, the patient was brought back to the operating room for definitive treatment with removal of the external fixator and open reduction and placement of internal fixation. The patient's postoperative course was uncomplicated. At the 6-week follow-up visit, he was noted to have a radiographic Hawkin's sign in the dome of the talus. At 3 months postoperatively, he was weightbearing as tolerated with radiographic evidence of fracture healing, and his ankle range of motion was from 30 degrees of plantar flexion to 15 degrees of dorsiflexion. At 6 months postoperatively, the patient had no complaints and was ambulating in a regular shoe. His plantar flexion was 35 degrees and his dorsiflexion was 15 degrees . His subtalar motion was from 5 degrees of eversion to 10 degrees of inversion. He returned for his one-year follow-up doing well without complaints, and he had returned to his previous activities.

Introduction: To ascertain the incidence of early complications in the posterolateral approach to open reduction and internal fixation of posterior malleolar fractures and identify possible risk factors related to occurrence of these complications. Methods: Retrospective study carried out in three tertiary hospitals. Patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation of posterior malleolus fractures via the posterolateral route were divided into two groups: with versus without delayed postoperative healing. To assess risk and protective factors for the outcome of delayed healing, we evaluated the time between trauma and surgery, whether the patient had a fracture-dislocation of the ankle, and whether external fixation was performed before surgery. We also evaluated whether improvement in operative technique led to a reduction in complication rates. Results: A total of 43 individuals who underwent surgical correction of posterior malleolus fractures via the posterolateral route between ...

Sprain of the ankle is undoubtedly a common injury during athletic activity, and the sprain can be also associated with fracture of the ankle. Isolated posterior malleolus fracture is a very rare condition, which is usually missed. Here, we are presenting a 37 years old female patient, who suffered injury secondary pressing on brake pedal during collision in a traffic accident. Clinical evaluation is based on Ottawa Ankle Rules and a fracture is diagnosed; patient is started on daily activities at postoperative Week 8. This study aims to emphasize that Ottawa Ankle Rules are usually efficient for evaluating fractures of ankle, but clinicians should always make a detailed physical examination.
Ankle fracture is one of the most common injuries. In order to determine the severity of ankle fractures, the Lauge-Hansen classification is frequently utilized. In the classification, Supination-External Rotation (SER) injuries are the most common occurrences. In a clinical setting, SER stage IV (SER IV) can be seen as a fracture of the lateral malleolus (Weber B fibular fractures) on radiographs, when there is no medial malleolus fracture.

Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth is continuing to urge PSEG Long Island to use nontoxic preservatives on its utility poles, after it was reported this week that the utility company would start transitioning away from using the controversial preservative pentachlorophenol (penta) and towards using a different one called CCA, or Chromated Copper Arsenate. Penta and CCA are both restricted-use pesticides and are approved by the EPA for utility poles. CCA contains known carcinogens when inhaled or ingested.. "It seems that PSEG is just exchanging one poison for another," said Bosworth. "Simply trading penta for CCA doesnt make sense or address the issue. I will continue to urge our utility companies to use non-toxic treatments for wooden poles or to begin using composite poles or another safe alternative.". In a letter to PSEG-LI President and CEO David Daly, Bosworth stated: "Cost-saving measures that put citizens health at risk are short sighted. With PSEG-LI setting about 4,000 ...

Dizziness, vertigo, and motion sickness all relate to the sense of balance and equilibrium. Researchers in space and aeronautical medicine call this sense spatial orientation, because it tells the brain where the body is "in space:" what direction it is pointing, what direction it is moving, and if it is turning or standing still.. Your sense of balance is maintained by a complex interaction of the following parts of the nervous system:. The inner ears (also called the labyrinth), which monitor the directions of motion, such as turning, or forward-backward, side-to-side, and up-and-down motions.. The eyes, which monitor where the body is in space (i.e. upside down, rightside up, etc.) and also directions of motion.. The skin pressure receptors such as in the joints and spine, which tell what part of the body is down and touching the ground.. The muscle and joint sensory receptors, which tell what parts of the body are moving.. The central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), which ...

He then added that the companys gross margin has yet to benefit from the expected cost savings that will come as it brings in-house some of the manufacturing processes from the new acquisitions. The projected consolidations are for the manufacturing of Cortizone and Balmex, as well as the packaging of Unisom. All are scheduled for completion by later this year and into early 2008, but the boost to the companys profitability will not hit until 2008, Bosworth said. All told, Bosworth provided four major factors for why sales and earnings will see a boost in 2008. First, he said, by 2008, the company will have had the new brands in its stable for an entire year, "rather than 11 months, as is the case this year." Beyond the benefit of the additional month of revenues, he sees an added bonus coming as the company learns from the new products over the course of a full year. Second, new product entries should "enhance organic growth in 2008," he said. The new products, along with increased ...

The natural environment in which unborn children live is constantly under threat by national and international governments, organisations and individuals. The womb, together with the fallopian tubes during the first 5 or 6 days of life, is the natural habitat of the unborn, yet the womb has become one of the most dangerous environments on earth for children to inhabit since the unborn often have little or no legal protection. To live in an environment where little or no legal protection exists for the smallest and most vulnerable human lives is a situation we must all take responsibility for. In Britain alone such environmental degradation destroys 3,500 children by surgical abortion every single week and over six million eight hundred thousand (6,800,000) children have been killed by surgical abortions since the 1967 Abortion Act.. Polluting the natural environment of the unborn, especially the environment of embryonic children, is often the first assault on early human life and often in the ...

We are trying to make the surgeries cost effective, which as of now are highly expensive. Infact, there is a meeting that being held at Italy in December this year where this is one of the topics of discussion. The basic thought is to develop affordable products for masses in developing nations. For example, the biodegradable screw for child related torn ligaments in the Europe is highly costly and patented. At the same time, In India, doctors are still using metal screw and the children using these have to be operated upon to remove that later. It is shocking that such technology benefits are not accessed by masses. The local innovations and subsidies for mass applications could help in overcoming the shortages. If subsidies can happen in case of cancer drugs why not surgical products ...

This is a fascinating story that I frankly dont know how to process.

University of Leicester researchers say it is beyond reasonable doubt that a battle-scarred skeleton unearthed last year is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485.
The aim of this study was to compare the long-term clinical and radiological results of Acromioclavicular (AC) fixation with K-wires (the modified Phemister procedure) and Coracoclavicular (CC) fixation with the Bosworth screw in the surgical treatment of Type 3 AC joint dislocations. Thirty-two patients with complete set of medical records and who received surgical treatment between September 2005 and January 2009 due to acute Rockwood Type 3 AC joint dislocation and properly attended their follow-ups were retrospectively evaluated. Sixteen patients (13 males, 3 females; mean age: 38, range: 24-52 years) were treated with CC fixation with Bosworth screw (Group 1), and the other 16 (12 males, 4 females; mean age: 53.3, range: 38-64 years) with AC fixation using K-wires (Group 2). The mean follow-up time was 96 months for Group 1 and 93 months for Group 2 patients (p > 0.05). The mean Constant-Murley score at the final follow-up was 84.7 in Group 1 and 87.3 in Group 2 (p = 0.069). Radiological ...

An irreducible ankle-fracture dislocation characterized by the dislocation of the proximal fragment of the fibula posteriorly to the tibial tubercle is defined as "Bosworth injury". In the present report it is described, for the first time in literature, a complex case where the Bosworth injury was associated to a tibial plafond fracture: the proximal fibular fragment was entrapped between the tibial pilon and the fractured posterior tibial tubercle, which acted as a clamp, thus avoiding ankle reduction. Due to the presence of the tibial fracture, it was not possible to observe the typical radiological signs of Bosworth injury and therefore two unsuccessful reductions were attempted before performing a CT scan that revealed the complexity of the case, that required an immediate ORIF procedure to prevent the onset of complications ...
Total dislocation of the talus from all of its joints is a rare injury specially when the talus and malleoli are not fractured and frequently it is as a result of a high-energy trauma. It usually leads to degenerative changes in neighboring joints and frequently avascular necrosis is a predictable outcome. We present a case of total talus dislocation because of a high-energy trauma in association with other major fractures resulting from a fall from height, but no fracture could be detected in the talus and any of malleols. Closed reduction was unsuccessful and we performed open reduction. At 6 month post operation follow-up, the talus didnt show subluxation and avascular necrosis could not be detected.
Its not uncommon for adults who are missing any number of adult teeth to feel embarrassed or insecure about their appearance. Unfortunately, though teeth are part of our bodies, unlike bone they cannot heal themselves or grow back when lost or extracted. For those missing adult teeth, this often means either going without a tooth or wearing a prosthetic bridge or denture to fill in the gap. But for a more permanent solution to replace missing adult teeth, there is a more permanent solution: dental implants.. Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that attach to the gums via a metal screw that is implanted into the jawbone. Once the screw has healed securely into place, a prosthetic crown is screwed on to the exposed metal screw, creating the look of a natural tooth. Considered the gold standard in replacing teeth, dental implants do more than just improve patient self-esteem and the look of the mouth. Here are some other benefits to installing dental implants..

Time and quality of bone fracture healing depends on numerous factors, including the possibility of iso-elastic fixation whose rigidness diminishes in the course of treatment. Such a fixation has two crucial advantages. It allows axial micromovements at the fracture site, which stimulates the formation of bone callus. Moreover, it also prevents torsion and angle movements that hinder the healing process. The paper focuses on mechanical fatigue examinations and biological tests conducted on the external carbon stabilizer of a highly innovative structure. Two types of carbon composite stabilizers were tested - Carboelastofix1 and Carboelastofix2 - that may both serve as an alternative to presently used metal stabilizers, mostly steel ones, and other plate osteosynthesis systems. The examined external stabilizers comprised composite plates fixed to the damaged bone by means of metal screws. The composite carbon-epoxide resin material complies with the requirements for bone stabilizers. The fatigue ...

The PLATO spectacles are suitable for essentially any application that requires controlled (including tachistoscopic or stroboscopic) presentation of visual information. This includes evaluation of human-machine interfaces, as well as research on visual perception, motion perception, reading, neurological disorders, rehabilitation, psychomotor coordination, motor learning, sport psychology and training, conspicuity testing, product recognition, and so forth.. Due to their very high light transmission, the PLATO spectacles remain effective even under very low lighting conditions. In addition, the spectacles are constructed without any metal screws, thereby rendering them effective for use in MRI environments.. Needless to say, we are very proud of the wide variety of applications for which the PLATO spectacles have been used over the years. At this site we are endeavouring to share with you as many of the publications that we manage to identify, with our primary criterion for inclusion in the ...
Campbell Soup is planning to eliminate the use of hazardous chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) in cans that are intended for use in food and beverage packaging.. The company started replacing BPA linings with linings made from acrylic or polyester materials.. Campbells portfolio in cans with new linings will be introduced across the US and Canada by mid-2017.. The company tested several alternatives such as identifying linings that will ensure the safety of more than 600 different recipes, including tomato-based products, which are naturally acidic and can react with some linings over time.. It is testing alternatives to BPA coatings used on other packaging, including aluminum cans used for V8 beverages and metal screw top lids on glass jars.. Campbell Soup packaging senior program manager Mike Mulshine said: Our priority throughout this transition has been, and will continue to be, food safety.. We have tested and conducted trials with hundreds of alternatives to BPA lining, and believe the acrylic ...
