We studied 45 patients with 46 fractures of the scaphoid who presented sequentially over a period of 21 months. MRI enabled us to relate the pattern of the fracture to the blood supply of the scaphoid. Serial MRI studies of the four main patterns showed that each followed a constant sequence during healing and failure to progress normally predicted nonunion.  (+info)

Acute fractures of the scaphoid. Treatment by cast immobilisation with the wrist in flexion or extension? (2/410)

Acute fractures of the scaphoid were randomly allocated for conservative treatment in a Colles'-type plaster cast with the wrist immobilised in either 20 degrees flexion or 20 degrees extension. The position of the wrist did not influence the rate of union of the fracture (89%) but when reviewed after six months the wrists which had been immobilised in flexion had a greater restriction of extension. We recommend that acute fractures of the scaphoid should be treated in a Colles'-type cast with the wrist in slight extension.  (+info)

Use of computed tomography and plantar pressure measurement for management of neuropathic ulcers in patients with diabetes. (3/410)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Total contact casting is effective at healing neuropathic ulcers, but patients have a high rate (30%-57%) of ulcer recurrence when they resume walking without the cast. The purposes of this case report are to describe how data from plantar pressure measurement and spiral x-ray computed tomography (SXCT) were used to help manage a patient with recurrent plantar ulcers and to discuss potential future benefits of this technology. CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient was a 62-year-old man with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) of 34 years' duration, peripheral neuropathy, and a recurrent plantar ulcer. Although total contact casting or relieving weight bearing with crutches apparently allowed the ulcer to heal, the ulcer recurred 3 times in an 18-month period. Spiral x-ray computed tomography and simultaneous pressure measurement were conducted to better understand the mechanism of his ulceration. OUTCOMES: The patient had a severe bony deformity that coincided with the location of highest plantar pressures (886 kPa). The results of the SXCT and pressure measurement convinced the patient to wear his prescribed footwear always, even when getting up in the middle of the night. The ulcer healed in 6 weeks, and the patient resumed his work, which required standing and walking for 8 to 10 hours a day. DISCUSSION: Following intervention, the patient's recurrent ulcer healed and remained healed for several months. Future benefits of these methods may include the ability to define how structural changes of the foot relate to increased plantar pressures and to help design and fabricate optimal orthoses.  (+info)

Chondrodiatasis in a patient with spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia using the Ilizarov technique: successful correction of an angular deformity with ensuing ossification of a large metaphyseal lesion. A case report. (5/410)

Distraction through the physis (chondrodiatasis) is a controversial technique with unpredictable results. However, it has been used in the past for the lengthening and correction of angular deformities of long bones. We report the case of an 11-year-old patient with spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia (SEMD) who presented with a severe recurvatum deformity of the left proximal tibia secondary to collapse of the tibial plateau into a large metaphyseal cystic lesion. Using the chondrodiatasis technique with a percutaneously applied Ilizarov circular frame, we were able to correct this deformity. Surprisingly, healing and ossification of the metaphyseal lesion was simultaneously observed at the end of the treatment, a finding which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been previously reported.  (+info)

A five-year assessment of controlled trials of in-patient and out-patient treatment and of plaster-of-Paris jackets for tuberculosis of the spine in children on standard chemotherapy. Studies in Masan and Pusan, Korea. Fifth report of the Medical Research Council Working Party on tuberculosis of the spine. (6/410)

In two centres in Korea 350 patients with a diagnosis of tuberculosis of the thoracic and/or lumbar spine were allocated at random: in Masan to in-patient rest in bed (IP) for six months followed by out-patient treatment or to ambulatory out-patient treatment (OP) from the start; in Pusan to out-patient treatment with a plaster-of-Paris jacket (J) for nine months or to ambulatory treatment without any support (No J). All patients recieved chemotherapy with PAS with isoniazid for eighteen months, either supplemented with streptomycin for the first three months (SPH) or without this supplement (PH), by random allocation. The main analysis of this report concerns 299 patients (eighty-three IP, eighty-three OP, sixty-three J, seventy No J; 143 SPH, 156 PH). Pre-treatment factors were similar in both centres except that the patients in Pusan had, on average, less extensive lesions although in a greater proportion the disease was radiographically active. One patient (J/SPH) died with active spinal disease and three (all No J/SPH) with paraplegia. A fifth patient (IP/PH) who died from cardio respiratory failure also had pulmonary tuberculosis. Twenty-three patients required operation and/or additional chemotherapy for the spinal lesion. A sinus or clinically evident abscess was either present initially or developed during treatment in 41 per cent of patients. Residual lesions persisted in ten patients (four IP, two OP, one J, three No J; six SPH, four PH) at five years. Thirty-two patients had paraparesis on admission or developing later. Complete resolution occurred in twenty on the allocated regimen and in eight after operation or additional chemotherapy or both. Of the remaining four atients, all of whom had operation and additional chemotherapy, three died and one still had paraparesis at five years. Of 295 patients assessed at five years 89 per cent had a favourable status. The proportions of the patients responding favourably were similar in the IP (91 per cent) and OP (89 per cent) series, in the J (90 per cent) and No J (84 per cent) series and in the SPH (86 per cent) and PH (92 per cent) series.  (+info)

Intra-articular absorption and distribution of ketoprofen after topical plaster application and oral intake in 100 patients undergoing knee arthroscopy. (7/410)

OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of this study was to assess the kinetics of ketoprofen in synovial fluid and intra-articular tissues in relation to plasma. The secondary objective was to study whether intra-articular tissues act as reservoirs. METHODS: The ketoprofen concentration was analysed in plasma, synovial fluid and intra-articular tissues after single application of a 30 mg plaster (n = 40), multiple applications for 5 days (n = 30) or oral intake of 50 mg (n = 30) in patients undergoing knee arthroscopy. RESULTS: Median CMax values after topical application were 12.8 ng/ml in synovial fluid, 56.7 ng/g in synovial tissue, 349.3 ng/g in meniscus and 568.9 ng/g in cartilage. CONCLUSION: Topical applications of ketoprofen allow the attainment of high intra-articular tissue concentrations.  (+info)

1 of 4 The Johns Hopkins Hospital Patient Information HIP SPICA CAST CARE Pediatrics Original 8/10/07 Revised 12/11/07 • A hip spica or body cast is used to keep the hips and legs from moving. This allows bones and tendons to heal correctly after an injury and/or surgery. • There are several types of spica casts. It may start at the chest and goes down your childs leg to his toes, it may cover both legs, or it may cover the entire leg on one side and down to the hip or knee of the other leg. • Most spica casts will not allow your child to stand, walk, or bear any weight. Why a spica? • A spica cast is needed if your child has a broken bone in his pelvis, hip or thigh. • A spica cast is needed if your child had surgery for hip dysplasia or Perthes disease. Hip dysplasia is when the tip of your childs femur does not fit in the pelvic bone as it should. Perthes disease is a condition where you have temporary loss of blood supply to your hip. Positioning and • Keep your childs head ...

Total contact casting (TCC) is a specially designed cast designed to take weight off of the foot (off-loading) in patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). Reducing pressure on the wound by taking weight of the foot has proven to be very effective in DFU treatment. DFUs are a major factor leading to lower leg amputations among the diabetic population in the US with 85% of amputations in diabetics being preceded by a DFU. Furthermore, the 5 year post-amputation mortality rate among diabetics is estimated at around 45% for those suffering from neuropathic DFUs. TCC has been used for off-loading DFUs in the US since the mid-1960s and is regarded by many practitioners as the reference standard for off-loading the bottom surface (sole) of the foot. TCC involves encasing the patients complete foot, including toes, and the lower leg in a specialist cast that redistributes weight and pressure in the lower leg and foot during everyday movements. This redistributes pressure from the foot into the leg, ...

If the other methods are not successful, or if DDH is diagnosed at age 6 months to 2 years, surgery may be required to put the hip back into place manually, also known as a closed reduction. Children older than 2 years may require an open surgery to realign the hip, followed by spica cast. If successful, a special cast (called a spica cast) is put on the baby to hold the hip in place. The spica cast is worn for approximately three to six months. The cast is changed from time to time to accommodate the babys growth and to ensure the casts rigidity, as it may soften with daily wear. The cast remains on the hip until the hip returns to normal placement. Following casting, a special brace and/or physical therapy exercises may be necessary to make the muscles around the hip and in the legs stronger.. ...

Application of a plaster cast seems to be easy. But it is only a make-believe. The wrong use of this kind of dressing may cause many complications, for instance local skin maceration, skin injuries or pressure on the blood vessels which may cause necrosis. That is why we have to do everything we can to protect the skin and the outgrowths under the cast against abrasions and prevent the itching, providing the patient with comfort. A correctly applied cast may free the patient from the pain and enable to move the limb despite the trauma.. ...

According to the Carnegie Museum, which has a fine collection, In the 19th century, the demand for plaster casts skyrocketed. As centerpieces of the great international fairs, casts nourished nationalistic pride, while independent cast galleries served the Victorian fervor for education by providing instruction to both the amateur and the art student. Also, the dominance of historical styles in premodern architecture required that the architecture student study the outstanding buildings of the past; in this pursuit, plaster casts played an essential role ...
A surgical cast venting device comprises two elongate strips or two layers of flexible material, at least one of which is porous. The strips or layers are spaced apart from each other and extend parallel to each other. Flexible, solid spacer members are arranged between the two strips or layers and connect them together. These members form air passageways between adjacent spacers so that air is normally free to pass along the passageways. A moisture-absorbent fabric layer extends along an outer side of the porous strip or layer opposite the spacers. In an alternate version, there is a first strip which is porous and a series of substantially flat, flexible outer members arranged in a row from one end of the strip to an opposite end. The outer members are spaced from the strip and opposite side edges of the strip and of the outer members are aligned with one another.

My pools plaster is nearing end-of-life, and I am not financially prepared for that major work. This past summer my pool was attacked by black algae, a battle that I apparently won by draining the pool and blasting every inch with a pressure washer. Of course, blasting the black algae resulted in some areas of rough plaster. Recently I used Patch-It to fill a small defect on the bottom of the pool, and I noticed some rough plaster nearby, so I added a bit more water to the patch-it material, to the consistency of thick paint, spread it over the rough plaster area, and allowed it to self level. The next day, the patch looked great, and the rough plaster area was smooth as silk. Heres where I need your expertise: If I fill the pool now, what will happen to the rough plaster area that I smoothed out using Patch-it?? Will it fail immediately? Fail after one month? A year ...

Ecos essay goes into much more detail than Carroll or Borges, discussing the major requirements for a 1:1 map to be useful. He insists that the map be able to exist within the country being mapped; I guess this is because its not useful as a travel reference if the map must be elsewhere. It must be an actual map, rather than a mechanically created replica: for example, it would be cheating to take a plaster cast of the whole country and call it a map. The map also needs to be useful as a tool for referencing other parts of the country: so it cant be the case that for any location X, the depiction of X on the map lies on the portion of the map directly located at X, since then the map would be no more useful than a transparent sheet over the land. He also discusses various physical constraints such as the materials needed, folding techniques, and the effect on the actual country of having a giant map rolled out over it ...

Offloading is an integral part of the comprehensive algorithm to heal a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU).1 Multiple studies have shown the total contact cast (TCC) is the best modality out of all the available methods to offload the plantar foot ulcer.2,3 In fact, advanced treatments, like expensive cellular- and tissue-based products, are unlikely to be successful without adequate offloading.4. In a large retrospective study from the U.S. Wound Registry, treatment of a DFU with a TCC cost significantly less than treatment without a TCC.5 The cost of care per patient when clinicians used a TCC averaged $11,946 (in 2010) whereas the cost per patient without the use of TCC averaged $22,494. A recent consensus report recommended the use of TCC for all appropriate DFUs.6. Total contact casting is indicated for plantar diabetic foot ulcers, Charcot foot and postoperative offloading. It is contraindicated in those with severe peripheral arterial disease or untreated infection. A TCC may interfere with ...
Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the idiopathic congenital clubfoot deformity treated by Ponseti method to determine the different factors such as radiological investigations that may have relations with the risk of failure and recurrence in mid-term follow-up of the patients. Methods: Since 2006 to 2011, 226 feet from 149 patients with idiopathic congenital clubfoot were treated with weekly castings by Ponseti method. Anteroposterior and lateral foot radiographies were performed at the final follow-up visit and the data from clinical and radiological outcomes were analysed. Results: In our patients, 191(84.9%) feet required percutaneous tenotomy. The successful correction rate was 92% indication no need for further surgical correction. No significant correlation was found between the remained deformity rate and the severity of the deformity and compliance of using the brace (P=0.108 and 0.207 respectively). The remained deformity rate had an inverse association with the beginning age
The Ankle Injury Management (AIM) trial was a pragmatic equivalence randomized controlled trial conducted at 24 hospitals in the United Kingdom that recruited 620 patients aged more than 60 years with an unstable ankle fracture. The trial compared the usual care pathway of early management with open reduction and internal fixation with initially attempting non-surgical management using close contact casting (CCC). CCC is a minimally padded cast applied by an orthopaedic surgeon after closed reduction in the operating theatre. The intervention groups had equivalent functional outcomes at six months and longer-term follow-up. However, potential barriers to using CCC as an initial form of treatment for these patients have been identified. In this report, the results of the AIM trial are summarized and the key issues are discussed in order to further the debate about the role of CCC. Evidence from the AIM trial supports surgeons considering conservative management by CCC as a treatment option for these

It is the viewers responsibility to determine the educational value of this historical content.|br||/b||p|The Ponseti technique has been used successfully for the initial treatment of idiopathic clubfeet. The technique has drastically reduced the use of more aggressive surgical reconstructions of the foot. The majority of cases are corrected beyond recognition with serial casting with or without Achilles tenotomy. However, relapses do occur and the appropriate treatment of this is not well established, particularly as the patient ages. Ponseti described his case series of relapses and recommended maintaining his principles with an added element of overcorrection with the casts. In this video, we provide an overview of persistent/recurrent (relapsed) clubfoot. We also show the treatment of relapsed bilateral
Clubfoot (talipes equinovarus) is a common congenital deformity and often treated with the Ponseti method. To correct the adductus deformity, the orthopaedist applies manual pressure on the medial side of the first metatarsal with counter pressure on the lateral side of the talar neck, abducting the foot while aligning the talus with the calcaneus. This manipulation stretches the tissues on the medial side of the foot and is maintained for a week with a plaster cast. Most cases of clubfoot are corrected after five to six cast changes and, in many cases, a percutaneous Achilles tenotomy. After the casting period a foot abduction brace is used for four years to prevent relapse.. We have measured the applied forces on the clubfoot during the Ponseti method (Giesberts, et al. (2017) Quantifying the Ponseti method). Our main observation in this measurement were the great differences between practitioners. The measured pressure of the cast on the instrumented foot would probably cause skin problems in ...
Passive joint mobilisation is a technique frequently used by physiotherapists to reduce pain, improve joint movement and facilitate a return to activities after injury, but its use after ankle fracture is currently based on limited evidence. The primary aim of this trial is to determine if adding joint mobilisation to a standard exercise programme is effective and cost-effective after cast immobilisation for ankle fracture in adults. Ninety participants will be recruited from the physiotherapy departments of three teaching hospitals and randomly allocated to treatment or control groups using a concealed procedure. All participants will perform an exercise programme. Participants in the treatment group will also receive joint mobilisation twice a week for four weeks. Blinded follow-up assessments will be conducted four, 12 and 24 weeks after randomisation. The primary outcome measures will be the Lower Extremity Functional Scale and the Assessment of Quality of Life. Secondary outcomes will include

Currently, guidelines and clinical practice differ considerably with respect to use of anticoagulant treatment during cast immobilization of the lower leg. Trials that have been carried out were aimed at efficacy only, had small sample sizes and therefore mainly used asymptomatic thrombosis as endpoint. From these trials an overall risk benefit-balance could not be established, hence the current controversy. In the proposed study the investigators will use relevant symptomatic endpoints in a large cohort of patients. Furthermore the investigators will follow subjects with an adverse event for a longer period, during which the investigators will assess the long term sequelae of these events. Lastly, the investigators will determine high risk groups that will benefit most from anticoagulant treatment.. Objective: Comparative effectiveness research to determine cost-effectiveness of two existing policies, i.e. treatment with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) during lower leg plaster cast ...

Clubfoot is one of the most common, non-life threatening, major birth defects among infants globally. Approximately one in every 1,000 newborns has clubfoot. Of those, one in three have both feet clubbed. The exact cause is unknown. Two out of three clubfoot babies are boys. Clubfoot is twice as likely to occur if one or both parents and/or a sibling has had it. Less severe infant foot problems are often incorrectly called clubfoot.. Clubfoot twists the heel and toes inward. It often appears like the top of the foot is on the bottom. Additionally, the clubfoot, calf, and leg are smaller and shorter than normal.

Figure 3. This enables the surgeon to simulate the implant position optimized for parallelization and bone structure directly on the plaster cast. The diagnostic waxup uses this planned abutments. In an interactive process the implant position can be changed.. Discussion. The dental plaster cast mounted in an articulator is standard equipment. Our method of stereotactic registration of the plaster cast models is based on the mounting in the articulator. The reference structure for visualization is a real model of the dental plaster cast that is shared across different departments. This approach allows a collaborative decision process that takes a unique approach to information transfer. We combine visualization in the form of a wax-up with virtual structures defining the implant position. This makes it possible to combine simulation of implant positioning with established highly accurate planning of the suprastructure in the articulator.. Bibliography. [1] T. Fortin, J. Coudert, G. Champleboux, ...

Spencer is the most amazing 6 year old you will ever meet. After being born with a heart defect, Spencer has undergone 3 open-heart surgeries to repair the defect. At 17 months old, Spencer suffered a brain hemorrhage and hemorrhagic stroke. Since then, he has had numerous surgeries to correct everything from hydrocephalus to hip dysplasia. His most recent surgery was December 13, 2013. He underwent a (second) hip osteotomy on his right hip. Because it was the second time the surgery had been done, Spencer was placed in a spica cast (the red and green cast pictured) for 3 months!! Had it not been for our red Radio Flyer wagon, Im not sure how we wouldve been able to mobilize him in public. He couldnt fit in his wheelchair because of his cast, and the rental chair we were given was too big to transport in our car. Our little red wagon was a lifesaver. It was the only way we were able to give Spencer mobility while he was in his spica (12.13.13 to 3.10.14). Im really not sure how we wouldve ...
Parents may find adhering to the treatment process difficult. Many Ponseti treatment programmes have found that bracing is the most difficult phase of treatment for parents to adhere to. Non-adherence and drop-out rates can also be high in the manipulation and casting phases of treatment too. Failure to adhere means that recurrence of the clubfoot deformity is highly likely to occur; this is frustrating both for parents and clinicians. It also results in considerable waste of parents and service providers resources. A study in New Zealand showed that the Ponseti method is far less cost-effective when adherence rates are low; this is due to the expense of managing recurrences (43).. In programmes where adherence is particularly problematic the causes for this should be investigated. It is important to understand what the barriers to adherence are so that parents do not get blamed for lack of adherence as it can be due to circumstances outside their control. Previous studies have shown that most ...
Finding the causes of congenital clubfoot - the most common musculoskeletal birth defect - is of critical importance to provide counseling to the families, help in the understanding of the natural history of the deformity after correction and, eventually, in the development of treatments based on the basic molecular abnormality. This study demonstrates that in a small subset of patients (4 out of 66) with congenital clubfoot, a chromosomal abnormality is associated with the deformity. Interestingly, this genetic variation is also associated with other abnormalities including short stature, hip dysplasia, and subtle nail and bony deformities. This later finding separates these patients from the most common form of clubfoot, idiopathic clubfoot, and highlights the importance of careful clinical evaluation when ascertaining patients for genetic studies. In summary, this is an important study that adds to our current understanding of this common birth defect ...

Sep 22, 2015 LinkedIn Post. Last week it was reported that developing world countries are now showing an increase in antibiotic resistance: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34276557. As with any issue affecting the developing world, such a problem will potentially affect huge numbers of people, due simply to the scale of populations. Whilst in many ways its good that incomes are rising in the developing world, enabling more people access to health care, this also means that the sizeable challenge of antibiotic overuse and subsequent resistance is spreading in low income / high population countries.. Relevant then, is the use of the non-surgical Ponseti method of correction of congenital clubfoot, a condition affecting an estimated 200,000 newborns globally per annum, 80% of whom arrive in a developing country.. Uncorrected clubfoot deformity is a misery for the afflicted child, a burden and a grief for the family. The disabled child who cant walk easily, is disadvantaged physically, and a drain ...

We met with her CP doctor this week and developed a new plan, based on the recommendation of her new PT. Mollie walks with a slight limp, due to the fact that she cant raise her toes on her right foot. Her heel cord is extremely tight, and she cant raise her foot past neutral. To compensate, and avoid tripping on her toes, she raises her right hip. There are several approaches we could take to address this problem, ranging from do nothing to surgery. After much debate, weve decided to try serial casting and an AFO. With serial casting, the PTs will put a cast on her, and then recast her in a slightly higher position every week for 3-6 weeks, hoping to stretch the muscle and joint enough to improve her mobility. After the casting, the hinged ankle-foot-orthotic is basically a small brace that she can wear inside her normal shoe, which will allow the ankle to flex but wont allow her toe to drag. We hope that this plan will improve her gait, allow her to expend less energy walking and ...

The next 48 hours all blurred into each other and Im not really sure what order things happened in during this time. She would sleep for what seems like minutes then wake up crying. In the middle of the night it was agreed that the spica cast was too tight about her belly so that was cut after a late night call to her surgeon. The next day the anaesthetist agreed to more iv medication to help her stop spasming in the cast which was seemed like a good idea but her two cannulas were tissuing over and getting more cannulas into Lylas little veins with her extreme movement and distress was impossible for anyone other than anaesthetists.

The trim, baseboards & picture molding in my home are flush with the walls in some places. We pulled the baseboards & some trim out of one room and we could see the layers of plaster, wallpaper, plaster, and maybe some drywall. This makes it really tough to paint - the plaster is jagged around some trim, the trim is actually recessed into the plaster in places, and it just looks like a mess. You cant tape anything off to paint because you can barely tell where the wall ends and the trim begins. Does anyone else have this problem? Why would anyone keep adding layers of wall to a room?
