A surgical specialty which utilizes medical, surgical, and physical methods to treat and correct deformities, diseases, and injuries to the skeletal system, its articulations, and associated structures.
A malformation of the nervous system caused by failure of the anterior neuropore to close. Infants are born with intact spinal cords, cerebellums, and brainstems, but lack formation of neural structures above this level. The skull is only partially formed but the eyes are usually normal. This condition may be associated with folate deficiency. Affected infants are only capable of primitive (brain stem) reflexes and usually do not survive for more than two weeks. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p247)

Bone erosions and bone marrow edema as defined by magnetic resonance imaging reflect true bone marrow inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis. (1/7)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the pathologic nature of features termed "bone erosion" and "bone marrow edema" (also called "osteitis) on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of joints affected by rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: RA patients scheduled for joint replacement surgery (metacarpophalangeal or proximal interphalangeal joints) underwent MRI on the day before surgery. The presence and localization of bone erosions and bone marrow edema as evidenced by MRI (MRI bone erosions and MRI bone marrow edema) were documented in each joint (n=12 joints). After surgery, sequential sections from throughout the whole joint were analyzed histologically for bone marrow changes, and these results were correlated with the MRI findings. RESULTS: MRI bone erosion was recorded based on bone marrow inflammation adjacent to a site of cortical bone penetration. Inflammation was recorded based on either invading synovial tissue (pannus), formation of lymphocytic aggregates, or increased vascularity. Fat-rich bone marrow was replaced by inflammatory tissue, increasing water content, which appears as bright signal enhancement on STIR MRI sequences. MRI bone marrow edema was recorded based on the finding of inflammatory infiltrates, which were less dense than those of MRI bone erosions and localized more centrally in the joint. These lesions were either isolated or found in contact with MRI bone erosions. CONCLUSION: MRI bone erosions and MRI bone marrow edema are due to the formation of inflammatory infiltrates in the bone marrow of patients with RA. This emphasizes the value of MRI in sensitively detecting inflammatory tissue in the bone marrow and demonstrates that the inflammatory process extends to the bone marrow cavity, which is an additional target structure for antiinflammatory therapy.  (+info)

Conical, radiographic, and patient-reported results of surface replacing proximal interphalangeal joint arthroplasty of the hand. (5/7)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the one-year clinical, radiologic and patient-reported results of surface-replacing proximal interphalangeal joint arthroplasty (SR-PIP) of the hand. Fifteen patients with 18 joints underwent the procedure, and nine patients with 11 joints had follow-up of at least one year's duration. Of these joints, six had a diagnosis of osteoarthritis with no history of trauma, three had post-traumatic arthritis, one had psoriatic arthritis, and one had erosive arthritis. The mean clinical follow-up was at 3.3 years, and the mean radiographic follow-up was at 3.1 years. The average post-operative gain in range of motion at the PIP joint was 28 degrees and was statistically significant. Six patients completed self-reported questionnaires at a mean of 4.8 years post-operatively. The mean Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) score post-operatively was 17, and the Michigan Hand Questionnaire (MHQ) score for overall satisfaction was 70. There were three complications but only one reoperation. Seven of 11 joints showed some evidence of subsidence on follow-up radiographic examination. However, no joints were revised secondary to loosening. Longer follow-up is needed to determine if this observable radiologic subsidence leads to symptomatic loosening of the implant.  (+info)

This bacterium was first described in 1946 from patients suffering from a sore throat, and was originally named Corynebacterium haemolyticum. It is an obligate parasite of the pharynx of human and farm animals, where it can cause a number of throat-related illnesses such as pharyngitis and tonsillitis. It can also cause osteomyelitis (bone or bone marrow inflammation) and sepsis. As it is the type strain, this is probably the original isolate, which was isolated from US soldiers. It is a non-motile, non-sporulating, rod-shaped facultative anaerobe. It grows optimally at 37 degrees Celsius, and being chemoorganotrophic requires rich media for growth. The predominant menaquinone is MK-9(H4), which minor amounts of MK-8(H4). It has a number of other strain designations, including CCM 5947 and LMG 1616 (adapted from PMID 21304742). (EBI Integr8 ...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the psychometric properties, namely acceptability, validity, reliability, interpretability and responsiveness of the EuroQol EQ-5D (EQ-5D visual analogue (VAS) and EQ-5D (utility)), Short Form 12 Dimensions (SF-12), SF-6D and Michigan Hand Outcome Questionnaire (MHQ) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) of the hand. METHODS: The empirical investigation was based upon data from a randomised controlled trial of 488 adults with rheumatoid arthritis who had pain and dysfunction of the hands and/or wrists. Participants completed the EQ-5D, SF-12 and MHQ at baseline and at 4 and 12 months follow up. Acceptability was measured using completion rates over time; construct validity using the known groups approach, based on pain troublesomeness; convergent validity using spearmans rho correlation (ρ); reliability using internal consistency (Cronbachs alpha); interpretability using minimal important differences (MID); and responsiveness using effect sizes
The aims of the study were to 1) investigate the test-retest reliability, the internal consistency in instruments that measure behavioural factors and disability as well as to investigate convergent validity between the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand Outcome Questionnaire (DASH) and the Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE), in patients with Colles fracture; and 2) assess the relationship between the behavioural measures and the region-specific measures addressing the patient perceptions of impairment, functional loss, and disability. Two samples (sample 1 = 16; sample 2 = 16) of patients with the fracture immobilised in plaster cast were included. The participants answered the Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE), Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand Outcome Questionnaire (DASH), Tampa Scale of Kinesophobia (TSK), Catastrophizing Subscale (CAT) of the Coping Strategies Questionnaire (CSQ), and Self-Efficacy Scale (SES) twice.

Numerical simulation with progressive damage criterion is implemented to investigate the effect of porosity on the bending properties of 2D cross-ply carbon/carbon (C/C) composites. The mechanical properties of Pyrocarbon matrix regarding the change of porosity are calculated by using Mori-Tanaka approach. Combining with the stiffness degradation scheme, the ultimate bending strengths are calculated in Abaqus though a user-defined subroutine (USDFLD). Delamination is modelled by inserting cohesive elements between two adjacent plies. A good agreement is obtained when the FEM results are compared to three-point bending experiments. The FEM results show that the bending strength decreases greatly with the increase of porosity. When the porosity reaches up to 18%, the bending strength is decreased by 57%. The major fracture behaviors are interlamination delamination and continuous crack damage in 90° plies. With the increase of porosity, more severe interlamination delamination will be slightly ...

Tristructural-isotropic (TRISO) fuel is a type of micro fuel particle. It consists of a fuel kernel composed of UOX (sometimes UC or UCO) in the center, coated with four layers of three isotropic materials. The four layers are a porous buffer layer made of carbon, followed by a dense inner layer of pyrolytic carbon (PyC), followed by a ceramic layer of SiC to retain fission products at elevated temperatures and to give the TRISO particle more structural integrity, followed by a dense outer layer of PyC. TRISO fuel particles are designed not to crack due to the stresses from processes (such as differential thermal expansion or fission gas pressure) at temperatures beyond 1600°C, and therefore can contain the fuel in the worst of accident scenarios in a properly designed reactor. Two such reactor designs are the pebble bed reactor (PBR), in which thousands of TRISO fuel particles are dispersed into graphite pebbles, and the prismatic-block gas-cooled reactor (such as the GT-MHR), in which the ...
The causing of Bouchards nodes will tell you that you are suffering from a condition of hand osteoarthiritis. When the middle joints of the fingers get enlarged you are said to have this particular disease. The ailment is also referred to as the PIP joint or it can also be termed as proximal interphalangeal joint. The condition can both be painful or you may not feel the pain in certain cases. However, when this occurs you have limited movement of the joints. It is true that in case of Bouchards nodes you cannot move your hands in the right fashion. The nodes on the hand structure become all the more familial. This is a less occurring physiological phenomenon and so it would be best to stay out of this condition if possible. ...

The proximal and middle phalanges from 83 proximal interphalangeal joints (PIPJs) were set in clear plastic and sectioned in the transverse plane leaving the heads whole. The sections were cleaned, shadowgraphed and measured. The medullary canals were marked on sagittal and frontal plane shadowgraphs of the intact bones and analysed. The information was then used in the design of a surface replacement prosthesis for the PIPJs. The main dorsal surface of the proximal phalanx (PP) was found to be angled to the longitudinal baseline of the bone by a mean of 5.19 degrees. This angle increased just proximal to the phalangeal head to a mean of 11.84 degrees. The mean ratio between these angles was 2.71. The phalangeal shaft bone was thicker laterally than dorsally and palmarly, and thicker dorsally than palmarly for the proximal and middle phalanges throughout the length of the bone. The shape and size of the transverse cross-section of the medullary canal changed throughout the length of the shaft. The
Assessing the pathology of the synovium, its thickening and increased vascularity through ultrasound and magnetic resonance examinations (more often an ultrasound study alone) is still considered a sensitive parameter in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and in monitoring of treatment efficacy. Magnetic resonance studies showed that, aside from the joint pannus, the subchondral bone tissue constitutes an essential element in the development of rheumatoid arthritis. Bone marrow edema correlates with inflammation severity, joint destruction, clinical signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, and thus is considered a predictor of rapid radiological progression of the disease. The newest studies reveal that bone marrow edema may be a more sensitive indicator of the response to therapy than appearance of the synovium. Bone marrow edema presents with increased signal in T2-weighted images, being most visible in fat saturation or IR sequences (STIR, TIRM). On the other hand, it is hypointense and ...

Methods This prospective observational study includes 56 patients with RA (42 females; mean age,), from June 2015 to October 2016. The mean age of RA patients was 53.2±17.6 years, and 42 patients were female (75.0%). All the included patients underwent ultrasound about both wrists and hands (total 22 joints; wrist joints, metacarpophalangeal joints, and proximal interphalangeal joints). All the ultrasound examinations were performed at the volar side of the wrists and hands using both conventional PDI and SMI which use Aplio TM 500 Ultrasound (Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation). Their results were scored for each joint from grade 0 to grade 3 according to the vascularity (grade 0, no vascularity; grade 1, single vessel; grade 2, vascular flow less than 50% in field of view; grade 3, equal to 50% or more). The sum of grades for 22 joints was compared between PDI (PDI-sum) and SMI (SMI-sum). The correlation between the sum of grades values and inflammatory laboratory parameters including the ...
A 55-year-old man presented with nonpainful, red masses on his knuckles that had been recurring for years. The lesions generally lasted for one month then resolved spontaneously. He was a mechanic, and job-related trauma exacerbated the condition. He also had arthralgias in several joints, including bilateral hands, hips, and knees. During one episode, he was prescribed an oral steroid that seemed to relieve his symptoms.. Physical examination revealed several erythematous, nontender nodules involving his metacarpophalangeal and proximal interphalangeal joints (Figure 1). The nodules were firm and varied in size. There was no skin erosion, signs of infection, neurologic dysfunction, or decreased range of motion. The patient requested treatment because the nodules were interfering with his work. ...

A: As many as 50,000 Japanese were taken prisoner by the Western Allies during WWII. Those captured in Southeast Asia were generally held in camps in Australia and New Zealand; those taken in Burma were sent to camps in India; and those taken in the Central Pacific from late 1943 on were held in compounds set up in the islands. The Americans shipped POWs they regarded as promising sources of intelligence to Fort Hunt, Virginia, or Camp Tracy, California..

Structural studies of multi-wall carbon nanotubes prepared by template pyrolytic carbon deposition from thermal decomposition of propylene at 800 degrees C inside channels of an alumina membrane have been performed using X-ray diffraction. The two-dimensional diffraction pattern of the deposited carbon nanotubes, recorded directly within the alumina template using an image plate detector, exhibits two dark arcs corresponding to the (002) graphitic reflection. The anisotropic scattering distribution indicates alignment of the nanotubes. The diffracted intensity was measured for the powdered samples after removing the alumina membrane using a point detector. A maximum scattering vector of K-max = 20 angstrom(-1) yielded the radial distribution function, providing evidence that the investigated nanotubes form a distorted hexagonal network that implies the presence of five-membered rings.

The objective was to investigate how response to conservative treatment, in terms of pain and hand function, influences the hazard that patients convert to surgical treatment. Design. This was a multicenter, prospective cohort study. Methods. Participants comprised 701 patients who received 3 months of hand therapy and an orthosis. Pain and function were measured with the Michigan Hand Questionnaire (MHQ) at baseline and at 6 weeks and 3 months follow-up. Conversion to surgical treatment was recorded from clinical records. Joint modeling (a statistical method of combining prediction models) was used to perform the analysis and to calculate hazard ratios (HRs). Results. The joint analytical model showed that both MHQ pain score at a certain point (HR = 0.93; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.92-0.94) and change in ...
Diagnosing the central slip injury, an important finger injury involving the extensor mechanism particularly over the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint
Rheumatism (FR) is a rare disease characterized by polyarthralgia associated with painless subcutaneous nodules, sclerodactyly and finger contractures. Case report a 45-year-old man presented with peripheral vascular disease, polyarthralgia and subcutaneous nodules. The diagnosis of FR was confirmed by histological examination of a biopsy sample of a nodule, which showed myofibroblast proliferation. Radiographs of both hands showed bilateral erosion of the distal and proximal interphalangeal joints, of the right trapezium bone and acroosteolysis of the third phalanx of the right-hand second finger. Comments although the clinical features of FR have now been well described, the literature includes few radiological descriptions. In most reported cases, radiographs are normal at disease onset. Joint radiographs performed later usually show bone destruction of the hands and feet ...
This occurs because most footwear has heel elevation and a feature called toespring, which holds the ends of the toes above the ground, in relation to the ball of the foot. These two features, coupled with the tapering toeboxes mentioned above, are responsible for the development of most hammertoe and bunion deformities. Hammertoes generally cause walkers to experience pain and dysfunction in three distinct areas: 1) On the top of the contracted joint, known as the proximal interphalangeal joint, due to callus buildup or bursa formation that occurs from the toe joint now rubbing against the top of the toebox of the shoe; 2) On the tip of the toe, since now there is an unnatural bend in the toe, which causes pressure on the end of the toe. This is a problem because the skin on the end of the toe is not as strong and resilient as the skin on the bottom of the toe; 3) Under the ball of the foot. When a toe becomes hammered, also termed contracted, it unfortunately puts downward pressure on the ...
We interrogated whether optoacoustic tomography could be employed to study blood functional parameters and biodistribution of injected fluorescent agents in humans. Using a multichannel scanner at a frame rate of 10 images per second, we obtained cross-sectional images of the human finger in real time, before and after the administration of indocyanine green. We demonstrated that multispectral optoacoustic tomography can sense fast flow kinetics and resolve spatiotemporal characteristics of a common fluorochrome in human vasculature at clinically relevant concentrations. We further register ICG images with oxygen saturation maps and anatomical views of the proximal interphalangeal joint of a healthy volunteer.. © 2014 Optical Society of America.
