Results of the Bosworth method for unstable fractures of the distal clavicle. (1/248)

Eleven consecutive Neer's type II unstable fractures of the distal third of the clavicle were treated by open reduction and internal fixation, using a temporary Bosworth-type screw. In all cases, fracture healing occurred within 10 weeks. Shoulder function was restored to the pre-injury level. A Bosworth-type screw fixation is a relatively easy and safe technique of open reduction and internal fixation of type II fractures of the distal third of the clavicle.  (+info)

The prevalence and CT appearance of the levator claviculae muscle: a normal variant not to be mistaken for an abnormality. (3/248)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The levator claviculae muscle is an infrequently recognized variant in humans, occurring in 2% to 3% of the population, and has rarely been reported in the radiologic or anatomic literature. The importance of this muscle to radiologists is in distinguishing it from an abnormality; most commonly, cervical adenopathy. After discovering this muscle on the CT scans of two patients during routine clinical examinations, we conducted a study to determine the prevalence and appearance of the muscle on CT studies. METHODS: We evaluated 300 CT scans that adequately depicted the expected location of the muscle. The most superior level in which the muscle could be identified and the apparent location of insertion on the clavicle were recorded for all subjects in whom the muscle was detected. RESULTS: Seven levator claviculae muscles were identified in six subjects (2%). It was bilateral in one, on the left in four, and on the right in one. It was identified up to the level of the transverse process of C3 in all cases. The insertion was the middle third of the clavicle for two muscles and the lateral third of the clavicle for the remaining five muscles. CONCLUSION: Because the levator claviculae muscle will most likely be encountered during a radiologist's career, it is important to recognize this muscle as a variant and not as an abnormality.  (+info)

Early prenatal ultrasound diagnosis of cleidocranial dysplasia. (4/248)

A woman was referred in the first trimester of her third pregnancy because of a family history of cleidocranial dysplasia. An ultrasound examination at 14 weeks 4 days revealed a fetus with appropriate biometric measurements. However, the clavicles were noted to be hypoplastic and the cranium appeared less well ossified than expected for gestational age, suggesting the diagnosis of cleidocranial dysplasia. On subsequent examination at 21 weeks, the findings were essentially unchanged. Induced vaginal delivery owing to decreased amniotic fluid volume occurred at 37 weeks, and a female weighing 3200 g was delivered. The infant had clinical and X-ray signs of cleidocranial dysplasia.  (+info)

Surgical treatment of comminuted fractures of the distal clavicle using Wolter clavicular plates. (5/248)

Surgical reduction and fixation using Wolter clavicular plates was performed in 16 patients with distal clavicle fractures. Good bony union was obtained in all cases. The patients had neither postoperative pain nor muscle weakness. Compared with tension band wiring, the Wolter clavicular plates were better able to maintain the anatomic repositioning of comminuted distal clavicle fractures. However this method takes longer and requires a second operation for plate removal. Wolter clavicular plate placement is the treatment of choice for unstable distal clavicle fractures with small comminuted fragments.  (+info)

Genomic differentiation of Neanderthals and anatomically modern man allows a fossil-DNA-based classification of morphologically indistinguishable hominid bones. (6/248)

Southern blot hybridizations of genomic DNA were introduced as a relatively simple fossil-DNA-based approach to classify remains of Neanderthals. When hybridized with genomic DNA of either human or Neanderthal origin, DNA extracted from two Neanderthal finds-the Os parietale, from Warendorf-Neuwarendorf, Germany, and a clavicula, from Krapina, Croatia-was shown to yield hybridization signals that differ by at least a factor of two compared to the signals obtained with the use of fossil DNA of an early Homo sapiens from the Vogelherd cave (Stetten I), Germany. When labeled chimpanzee DNA was used as a probe, Neanderthal and human DNA, however, revealed hybridization signals of similar intensity. Thus, the genome of Neanderthals is expected to differ significantly from the genome of anatomically modern man, because of the contrasting composition of repetitive DNA. These data support the hypothesis that Neanderthals were not ancestors of anatomically modern man.  (+info)

Arthroscopic Mumford procedure variation of technique. (7/248)

Fifty-seven patients had arthroscopic Mumford procedures for acromioclavicular pain non-responsive to conservative treatment. Thirty-nine of these patients had concomitant rotator cuff repairs. All had significant improvement of their distal clavicular pain. Neither the amount nor the completeness of distal clavicle resection affected the results. Arthroscopic distal clavicle resection is a safe and effective method of alleviating acromioclavicular pain.  (+info)

Claviculectomy for subclavian venous repair: long-term functional results. (8/248)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term functional results after medial claviculectomy and venous patch angioplasty or bypass grafting using internal jugular vein after incomplete thrombolysis of effort thrombosis of the subclavian vein. METHODS: The records of 11 patients with effort thrombosis who were treated over the past 9 years were reviewed. Patients have been followed up between 3 and 9 years at 6-month intervals with duplex imaging and contrast venography when indicated and have had an orthopedic evaluation of their shoulder function. RESULTS: All reconstructed veins are patent, and only one patient complains of any arm swelling after prolonged usage. This patient is one of three with postphlebitic changes at the site of repair and has similar findings in her basilic vein. All patients have returned to their prethrombosis vocation without limitation. Four of the 11 patients have jobs requiring heavy physical labor. No patient describes any limitations of shoulder function, but one man who works as a diesel mechanic complains of shoulder aching with overuse with repetitive pulling. Three patients describe upper extremity paresthesias when lying on the operated side. Two patients (one man and one woman) are bothered by the large scar and indentation at the site of the incision. Every patient considers the overall result completely successful from a functional standpoint. CONCLUSIONS: Early subclavian venous repair performed through a medial claviculectomy is a durable operation with excellent long-term functional results. Half of the patients noted minor but significant symptoms, but all are uniformly able to return to normal function.  (+info)

Introduction There is a lack of information about the results of surgical treatment and complications in midshaft clavicle fracture non-unions. Our hypothesis was that there is no difference in functional outcomes between the surgical treatment of an acute displaced middle-third clavicle fracture and the surgical treatment of a chronic symptomatic non-union of a displaced middle-third clavicle fracture. Methods This was a case-control study. Fourteen cases were considered with a displaced midshaft clavicle fracture, initially treated non-surgically, but which developed symptomatic non-union and required surgical treatment. The control group was a cohort of 18 patients with a displaced midshaft clavicle fracture, who had surgical treatment in an acute setting (<3 weeks). Our cases had a median follow-up of 77 months and were retrospectively analyzed. All those in the control group had a 12-month prospective follow-up evaluation. The variables measured were Constant score, time to discharge to

The purpose of this 2-phase biomechanical investigation is to report on the effects of plate location and selection on the stability of midshaft clavicle fractures. Thirty matched pairs of human adult formalin-fixed clavicles were used. In the first phase, in which a 3.5-mm reconstruction plate and simulated midshaft transverse clavicle osteotomies were used, we observed the effect of superior plate placement compared with anterior placement on fracture rigidity, construct stiffness, and strength. In the second phase, in which simulated midshaft oblique clavicle osteotomies were repaired on the superior ...
A clavicle fracture is when the bone of the shoulder and breastbone are broken. It is a condition that can be treated and healed within days to weeks. In order to find out if you have a clavicle fracture you need to have lab and imaging tests done. If the clavicle fracture is severe, going to the emergency room is the only course of action. In order to make the clavicle fracture heal, surgery will be needed. On the other hand, physical therapy, an arm sling, and medications may be the only thing that is needed to heal the fracture, if its not severe. There are many causes of getting a clavicle fracture. If you know what can cause one, youll be careful whenever you go somewhere or even in the house. There are eight common causes of a clavicle fracture that you need to be aware of. Once you know, you can seek medical treatment right away.. ...

Andrew Lim The superior surface of the clavicle has a smooth appearance. Anatomy terms allow us to describe the body and body motions more precisely. It does not properly belong to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint articulation, but is usually described with it, since it forms a efficient means of retaining the clavicle in contact with the acromion.It consists of two fasciculi, the trapezoid ligament in front, and the conoid ligament behind. The clavicle can be palpated along its length, and can is visible under the skin in a thin person. The acromial or lateral end of the clavicle has an oval facet for articulation with the acromion of the scapula to form the acromioclavicular joint. This article will discuss the anatomy of the clavicle. The shaft (or diaphysis, or body) refers to the middle part of any long bone. The clavicle is located at the top of the thoracic wall, just below the neck and to the sides of the sternum. Blood supply Suprascapular and thoracoaromial arteries Nerve supply ...
Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery used to stabilize and heal a broken bone. You might need this procedure to treat your broken collarbone (clavicle). The clavicle is a long thin bone located between your ribcage and the shoulder blade. Different kinds of injury can damage this bone, causing it to fracture into 2 or more pieces. Most often, this happens along the middle of the bone. In some cases the bone breaks near where it attaches to the ribcage. Or near where it attaches to the shoulder blade. In certain types of clavicle fractures, your clavicle has broken, but its pieces still line up correctly. In other types of fractures (displaced fractures), the injury moves the bone fragments out of alignment. If you fracture your clavicle, you might need ORIF to bring your bones back into place and help them heal. During an open reduction, orthopedic surgeons reposition your bone pieces surgically back into their correct alignment. In a closed reduction, a doctor ...
Intramedullary fixation has emerged as a promising alternative to traditional open reduction and internal plate fixation. Advantages of this minimally invasive treatment option include maintaining the fracture hematoma and keeping the periosteum intact, which positively in consequences bone formation and improves cosmetics owing to the small incisions used. Different techniques and examples of intramedullary fixation devices have been reported and include the Hagie, Knowles and Rockwood pins and titanium elastic nails (TEN).. A spectrum of possible postoperative complications, including pin migration, implant failure, deep and supercial infections, refractures and mal or nonunions has been reported. In the current literature, however, the scientific level of evidence for reported complications from intramedullary fixation of DMCF and the quality of the studies reporting them varies. The aim of this systematic review was to answer the following questions:. 1. What is the incidence of major and ...
Clavicle fractures are common accounting for around 4% of all fractures and up to 44% of fractures of the shoulder girdle of which the middle third is by far the most common site. The management of such injuries can be difficult and outcome can be unsatisfactory. There has been reported non-union rate of displaced mid-shaft clavicle fractures of between 15 and 20%. This can be reduced significantly with surgical intervention. Whilst there is risk and some potential complications with any surgical intervention the published results demonstrate that plate and screw fixation can be performed safely to give a good outcome with improved patient satisfaction and a reduction in the non-union rate compared to conservatively managed fractures.. There are many implant companies with clavicle specific plates. Described here is the use of the Stryker VariAx 2 clavicle locking plate system. These contoured and sided plates are available for lateral injuries, superior shaft fractures and for use along the ...
PURPOSE: Locking plate osteosynthesis has become the preferred method for operative treatment of clavicle fractures. The method offers stable fixation, and would theoretically be associated with a low rate of fracture-related complications and reoperations. However, this remains to be explored in a large cohort, and our purpose was to assess the overall rates of complications and reoperations following locking plate osteosynthesis of mid-shaft clavicle fractures. METHODS: We identified all locking plate osteosynthesis of mid-shaft clavicle fractures operated upon in our department from January 2008 to November 2010 (n = 114). Nine patients did not attend the follow-up at our institution. The study group of 105 fractures (104 patients, 86 males) had a median age of 36 years (14-75 years). Follow-up ranged from 0.5 to 3.5 years. No patients were allowed to load the upper extremity for six weeks. By studying patient files and radiographic material, we assessed complications and reoperations. ...

A clavicle fracture, also known as a broken collarbone, is a bone fracture of the clavicle. Symptoms typically include pain at the site of the break and a decreased ability to move the affected arm. Complications can include a collection of air in the pleural space surrounding the lung (pneumothorax), injury to the nerves or blood vessels in the area, and an unpleasant appearance. It is often caused by a fall onto a shoulder, outstretched arm, or direct trauma. The fracture can also occur in a baby during childbirth. The middle section of the clavicle is most often involved. Diagnosis is typically based on symptoms and confirmed with X-rays. Clavicle fractures are typically treated by putting the arm in a sling for one or two weeks. Pain medication such as paracetamol (acetaminophen) may be useful. It can take up to five months for the strength of the bone to return to normal. Reasons for surgical repair include an open fracture, involvement of the nerves or blood vessels, or shortening of the ...

Clavicle fractures are just as much a part of mountain biking as punctures, queuing for porta-loos and saddle sores.. Clavicle or collarbone fractures are one of the most common injuries sustained by mountain bikers. In this column I will explain the implications of these common breaks and discuss the treatment options available.. The clavicle links the mobile shoulder blade (scapula) to the rest of the skeleton; it is a strut which serves as a pivot around which the scapula moves. Its S shape makes it resistant to injury when struck from the front (hence relatively few fractures from rugby tackles) but it is vulnerable to fracture when hit from the side, the top or from the back. This is why it is frequently the result of an over the bars fall where the shoulder or arm hits the ground first.. Once the bone breaks, the weight of the arm causes the shoulder to droop forward and creates an obvious deformity at the fracture site. Not to mention serious pain.. As the clavicle has a good blood ...
Acta Chir Belg. 2008 Jul-Aug;108(4):428-32. Hartmann E, Hessmann MH, Gercek E, Rommens PM.. The majority of midclavicular fractures are treated conservatively. Fractures that require internal fixation are treated by plate osteosynthesis as the standard procedure. Elastic stable intramedullary nailing is an increasingly popular alternative for the internal fixation of displaced midclavicular fractures. In a three-year period, 15 fractures of the clavicle were treated by elastic intramedullary nailing. Fracture healing, clinical outcome and complications were assessed. Mean follow-up time was one year All fractures healed clinically and radiologically. Non-union or infections were not observed. Functional results according to the Constant score were excellent. Complications consisted of skin irritation in four cases. One acromioclavicular joint separation was observed postoperatively.

Lennard Funk, 2007. Condensing osteitis of the clavicle was first described as a disease entity in 1974. There is pain And often localised swelling of the medial third of the clavicle, with increased radio-density. The sternoclavicular joint is typically never involved. It is also known as aseptic enlarging osteosclerosis of the medial end of clavicle.. It was first described by Brower, Sweet and Keats (1974), as a syndrome causing pain on abduction of the arm with swelling over the medial end of a clavicle which showed radiographic sclerosis. Since then, 30 more cases have been described (Solovjev I 976 : Simpson 1978 ; Teates et al 1978 ; Tilly et al 1978; Petersen 1980; Appell et al 1983; Cone et al 1983; Weiner et al 1984; Franquet et al 1985; Kruger, Rock and Munro 1987; Smith, Yuppa and Watson 1988, Sng et al 2004). The cause is not really known. The syndrome has been considered to be a response to mechanical stress. Infection has also been thought to be the cause, particularly in children ...
We report a case of stress fracture of the clavicle in which diagnosis was delayed due to the unusual localization of pain and absence of predisposing risk factors. A 34-year-old woman presented with severe right-sided pain in the shoulder, arm, neck, and hemithorax, and numbness in her right upper extremity. Systemic radiographs, cervical and brachial plexus magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and thorax computed tomography (CT) did not show any pathology. In a retrospective review of the shoulder MRI sections, an edematous appearance was noted in the right clavicle and adjacent soft tissues, suggesting a stress fracture of the clavicle. The patient was followed-up with activity limitation and analgesic treatment and her complaints subsided gradually. Control radiographs obtained 10 months later showed fracture healing with atypical callus formation. Stress fractures of the clavicle must be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of shoulder pain presenting as an atypical severe arm pain ...
Background: Clavicular hook plates are effective fixation devices for lateral end clavicle fractures and acromioclavicular joint dislocations and have been extensively used in the last decade. Although this plate achieves a high percentage of union, there are concerns about sub-acromial osteolysis and impingement of supraspinatus tendon. Objective: To show that impingement of supraspinatus tendon can be prevented by measuring the depth between acromion and supraspinatus tendon posteriorly and using hook plates of appropriate depth. Materials and Methods: We performed a prospective study on 25 patients with lateral end clavicle fractures and acromio clavicular joint disruptions by measuring the depth between posterior border of acromion and the superior border of supraspinatus at the point of application of hook plate. Fixation is then done by appropriate sized hook plate. Results: None of the patients had impingement of supraspinatus tendon. Five patients developed subacromial osteolysis which did not
Discussion. Clavicle fractures are common and occur most frequently (80-85%) in the middle third. Although usually treated conservatively, there is increasing recognition of the morbidity associated with displaced fractures.11,12 The choice of the sites at which the clavicles were measured was determined by the desire to acquire information about those areas where a fixation device, particularly an external fixator could be applied with the least interference of the soft tissues attached to or around the clavicle. The surface markings caused by the attachments of muscles and ligaments were identified as the extent of such structures.. The overall length of the clavicle measured in this study (150.1 mm) by direct dry bone measurement differed from those published by Ahmad et al who recorded a mean length of 136.2 mm (range: 112.6-172.0 mm) in a radiographic study, and by Gumina et al who recorded a mean of 138 mm ± 12.3 (SD) and Galley et al 138.4 (113.8-167.6) in wet cadaver dissections.

The clavicle first appears as part of the skeleton in primitive bony fish, where it is associated with the pectoral fin; they also have a bone called the cleithrum. In such fish, the paired clavicles run behind and below the gills on each side, and are joined by a solid symphysis on the fishs underside. They are, however, absent in cartilaginous fish and in the vast majority of living bony fish, including all of the teleosts.[5]. The earliest tetrapods retained this arrangement, with the addition of a diamond-shaped interclavicle between the base of the clavicles, although this is not found in living amphibians. The cleithrum disappeared early in the evolution of reptiles, and is not found in any living amniotes, but the interclavicle is present in most modern reptiles, and also in monotremes. In modern forms, however, there are a number of variations from the primitive pattern. For example, crocodilians and salamanders lack clavicles altogether (although crocodilians do retain the ...

Team RadioShack-Nissans Fabian Cancellara underwent successful surgical treatment in Basel, Switzerland last night after crashing in yesterdays Tour of Flanders. In the crash the Swiss rider fractured his right collarbone.. During surgery it was discovered that the collarbone fracture was actually a four-part fracture and not a three-part fracture as identified by the doctors at the Oudenaarde hospital in Belgium.. The collarbone was reassembled using a special technique involving a clavicle pin, which according to doctors allows for a better and faster recovery.. Cancellara will have to undergo an additional surgical procedure in order to have the clavicle pin removed once the collar bone has healed. This procedure is of the minor kind..

one tori dumped me on my shoulder during a botched kata-guruma in drilling. there was nothing i could do except pray i wouldnt get dumped on my head when i saw my fall was at such an angle. result is that my left clavicle is fractured. on the x-ray it seems like a basic enough fracture that left my clavicle broken in half and at a 45 degree angle. however, my mom keeps running me in hospitals because my injured shoulder has both moved forward and also hangs lower than the other. i think
Swollen supraclavicular lymph nodes - Swollen supraclavicular lymph node, one side. Why? Needs evaluation. Enlarged lymph nodes can be reactive, responding to some infection for example, or reflect the presence of cancer. Isolated enlargement of a supraclavicular node can be from infection or other benign causes, but it is unusual. This should be checked out by a physician and possibly be biopsied.
The coracoclavicular ligament may be referred to as a complex because it is composed of two parts, the conoid and trapezoid ligaments. The conoid and trapezoid ligaments are continuous inferiorly at the coracoid process attachment but separate at an angle before attaching to the inferior aspect of the clavicle superiorly.[2] These two parts of the coracoclavicular ligament are often separated either by a bursa or by fat.. The conoid ligament attaches to the clavicle at the conoid tubercle, which is posterior medial to the trapezoid tubercle. From superior to inferior, the conoid ligament appears as an inferior pointing cone. Thus, the superior attachment at the clavicle is wide, while the inferior attachment is narrow, wrapping around the posteromedial aspect and root of the coracoid process. The other part of the coracoclavicular ligament, the trapezoid ligament, is typically anterior-lateral to the conoid ligament. It is quadrilateral in shape, as its name implies, and is thinner than the ...
A prospective randomized controlled clinical trial study was conducted to compare outcomes of operative management of type III acromioclavicular dislocations using combined intra-articular K-wire and coracoclavicular screw fixation against non-operative treatment. It included 54 (male=34, female=20) cases of type III acromioclavicular dislocations randomized into two groups A (operative) and B (non-operative). Group A cases underwent ORIF using combined intra-articular Kwire and coracoclavicular screw fixation. Group B cases were treated non-operatively using arm sling and rest. Mean follow-up period was 26.4 months (range=25-29). Maintenance of reduction was assessed by radiographic examination done pre-operatively and at follow-ups. Functional assessment was done using Constant Shoulder Score. Complications were recorded. Statistical analysis was done using unpaired Students T-test and p value ,0.001 was considered significant. Mean Constant Shoulder scores for group A and B were 10.16 and ...
The scapula also has two prominent projections. Toward the lateral end of the superior border, between the suprascapular notch and glenoid cavity, is the hook-like coracoid process (coracoid = shaped like a crows beak). This process projects anteriorly and curves laterally. At the shoulder, the coracoid process is located inferior to the lateral end of the clavicle. It is anchored to the clavicle by a strong ligament and serves as the attachment site for muscles of the anterior chest and arm. On the posterior aspect, the spine of the scapula is a long and prominent ridge that runs across its upper portion. Extending laterally from the spine is a flattened and expanded region called the acromion or acromial process. The acromion forms the bony tip of the superior shoulder region and articulates with the lateral end of the clavicle, forming the acromioclavicular joint (see Figure 11.1.2). Together, the clavicle, acromion, and spine of the scapula form a V-shaped bony line that provides for the ...
Management of acute and chronic symptomatic type III, type IV, and type V acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries continues to be a challenge in orthopaedic surgery. No consensus currently exists on the optimal surgical treatment option, and various reconstruction procedures have been described. Previous surgical treatment attempts have resulted in an unacceptably high complication rate (20% to 40%). Recently, hook plate reconstruction and combined AC and coracoclavicular graft reconstruction have resulted in improved biomechanical stability and good outcomes in patients with these challenging injuries. This video demonstrates a new technique for AC joint reconstruction that involves hook plate fixation and AC and coracoclavicular graft placement. Performing coracoclavicular and AC ligament reconstruction in combination with the use of a temporary rigid internal splint, such as a hook plate, may result in a construct robust enough to avoid the relatively high failure rates associated with previous AC

Typically the easiest landmark to identify first is the jugular notch (a.k.a. suprasternal notch), a small divot on the superior surface of the manubrium of the sternum. On either side of the jugular notch, you will probably see origin tendons of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, as well as the medial ends of each clavicle. One common problem in figure drawings is a jugular notch shown flowing directly into the clavicles. We tend to draw it this way because we know the clavicles connect directly to the manubrium-- but we tend to forget that you cant really see that connection on the surface. Why cant we see it? Because the origin end of the sternocleidomastoid muscle attaches to the manubrium and to the medial ends of the clavicles, and this attachment obscures the connection between the manubrium and the clavicles. The paintings below show the difference ...

AU - Imanishi, Nobuaki. AU - Aiso, Sadakazu. AU - Toyama, Yoshiaki. PY - 2013/3/1. Y1 - 2013/3/1. N2 - Hypothesis: The clavicle serves as a strut between the thorax and scapula, and lack of this function could affect shoulder mobility. We hypothesized that clavicular discontinuity changes shoulder kinematics, particularly affecting scapular motion. Materials and methods: The study used 14 cadaveric shoulders. Cadavers were stabilized in the sitting position. Manual elevation in the sagittal, scapular, and coronal planes was performed in the intact and clavicular discontinuity models. The thorax-scapula distance and 3-dimensional scapular motion during shoulder elevation were recorded using an electromagnetic tracking device. The differences between the 2 experimental models at each position were analyzed. Results: ...
The scapula is the large bone in the upper back which is surrounded by the scapular rotator muscles. This scapula has the socket portion of the shoulder attached to it. The humeral head or ball portion of the shoulder attaches to the socket through a series of rotator cuff muscles which dynamically position the ball in the socket. This is all held up to the axial skeleton at the clavicle through fairly strong ligaments at the acromioclavicular joint. These ligaments attach from a portion of the scapula called the coracoid process and actually hold the shoulder girdle up to the clavicle. Injuries to the AC joint are often thought of as the clavicle rising up and becoming prominent. However, these injuries are actually the shoulder girdle dropping down when the ligaments are injured that hold the shoulder girdle up to the clavicle. This connection between the clavicle and the acromion is not a typical joint such as the knee, hip or ankle. Although it is often described as developing ...

Acromioclavicular separations are common injuries. Low-grade separations are typically managed with nonoperative treatment. However, surgical treatment is recommended for high-grade separations, as well as for chronic low-grade separations that remain symptomatic. Multiple fixation techniques have been described over the past several decades, including Kirschner wires, hook plates, and coracoclavicular screws. More recently, a single-tunnel suture-graft repair and an anatomic reconstruction reproducing both the conoid and trapezoid ligaments have been described. All described techniques have reported complications, including implant migration, need for implant removal, clavicle or coracoid fracture, and loss of reduction. As a result, there is no single optimal method of operative fixation. We describe our technique for an arthroscopically assisted anatomic coracoclavicular repair using a 6-strand suture tape and cortical button construct.
ACROMIOCLAVICULAR JOINT DISLOCATION It is the joint formed between the clavicle and the acromion.

The majority of clavicle and scapula fractures can be managed conservatively with sling immobilization, ice, and analgesics. Early range-of-motion exercises are important. Orthopedic consultation is warranted for clavicle fractures that are open, have neurovascular compromise, or have persistent skin tenting. Clavicle fractures that are severely comminuted or displaced may benefit from operative intervention so consider early referral to orthopedics in those instances. Presence of a scapula fracture mandates investigation for associated intrathoracic injuries. Displaced glenoid articular fractures, angulated glenoid neck fractures, and certain acromial and coracoid fractures may require surgical intervention. ...

Partially digested food starts to arrive in the small intestine as semi-liquid chyme, one hour after it is eaten.[citation needed] The stomach is half empty after an average of 1.2 hours.[31] After four or five hours the stomach has emptied.[32] In the small intestine, the pH becomes crucial; it needs to be finely balanced in order to activate digestive enzymes. The chyme is very acidic, with a low pH, having been released from the stomach and needs to be made much more alkaline. This is achieved in the duodenum by the addition of bile from the gall bladder combined with the bicarbonate secretions from the pancreatic duct and also from secretions of bicarbonate-rich mucus from duodenal glands known as Brunner's glands. The chyme arrives in the intestines having been released from the stomach through the opening of the pyloric sphincter. The resulting alkaline fluid mix neutralises the gastric acid which would damage the lining of the intestine. The mucus component lubricates the walls of the ...
In the human female, the urethra is about 1.9 inches (4.8 cm) to 2 inches (5.1 cm) long and exits the body between the clitoris and the vagina, extending from the internal to the external urethral orifice. The meatus is located below the clitoris. It is placed behind the symphysis pubis, embedded in the anterior wall of the vagina, and its direction is obliquely downward and forward; it is slightly curved with the concavity directed forward. The proximal 2/3rds is lined by transitional epithelium cells while distal 1/3rd is lined by stratified squamous epithelium cells.[10] The urethra consists of three coats: muscular, erectile, and mucous, the muscular layer being a continuation of that of the bladder. Between the superior and inferior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm, the female urethra is surrounded by the urethral sphincter. Somatic (conscious) innervation of the external urethral sphincter is supplied by the pudendal nerve. ...
... l agenesis[17] is a rare birth defect in which the trachea fails to develop. The defect is usually fatal though sometimes surgical intervention has been successful. A tracheoesophageal fistula is a congenital defect in which the trachea and esophagus are abnormally connected (a fistula). This is because of abnormalities in the separation between the trachea and oesophagus during development.[4] This occurs in approximately 1 in 3000 births, and the most common abnormalities is a separation of the upper and lower ends of the oesophagus, with the upper end finishing in a closed pouch.[4] Other abnormalities may be associated with this, including cardiac abnormalities, or VACTERL syndrome.[4] Such fistulas may be detected before a baby is born because of excess amniotic fluid; after birth, they are often associated with pneumonitis and pneumonia because of aspiration of food contents.[4] Congenital fistulas are often treated by surgical repair.[10] In adults, fistulas may occur because of ...
In tetrapods, the pharynx is much shorter, and the esophagus correspondingly longer, than in fish. In the majority of vertebrates, the esophagus is simply a connecting tube, but in some birds, which regurgitate components to feed their young, it is extended towards the lower end to form a crop for storing food before it enters the true stomach.[36][37] In ruminants, animals with four stomachs, a groove called the sulcus reticuli is often found in the esophagus, allowing milk to drain directly into the hind stomach, the abomasum.[38] In the horse the esophagus is about 1.2 to 1.5 m (4 to 5 ft) in length, and carries food to the stomach. A muscular ring, called the cardiac sphincter, connects the stomach to the esophagus. This sphincter is very well developed in horses. This and the oblique angle at which the esophagus connects to the stomach explains why horses cannot vomit.[39] The esophagus is also the area of the digestive tract where horses may suffer from choke. The esophagus of snakes is ...
The gustatory cortex is the primary receptive area for taste. The word taste is used in a technical sense to refer specifically to sensations coming from taste buds on the tongue. The five qualities of taste detected by the tongue include sourness, bitterness, sweetness, saltiness, and the protein taste quality, called umami. In contrast, the term flavor refers to the experience generated through integration of taste with smell and tactile information. The gustatory cortex consists of two primary structures: the anterior insula, located on the insular lobe, and the frontal operculum, located on the frontal lobe. Similarly to the olfactory cortex, the gustatory pathway operates through both peripheral and central mechanisms.[clarification needed] Peripheral taste receptors, located on the tongue, soft palate, pharynx, and esophagus, transmit the received signal to primary sensory axons, where the signal is projected to the nucleus of the solitary tract in the medulla, or the gustatory nucleus of ...
Because the beta cells in the pancreatic islets are selectively destroyed by an autoimmune process in type 1 diabetes, clinicians and researchers are actively pursuing islet transplantation as a means of restoring physiological beta cell function, which would offer an alternative to a complete pancreas transplant or artificial pancreas.[14][15] Islet transplantation emerged as a viable option for the treatment of insulin requiring diabetes in the early 1970s with steady progress over the last three decades.[16] Recent clinical trials have shown that insulin independence and improved metabolic control can be reproducibly obtained after transplantation of cadaveric donor islets into patients with unstable type 1 diabetes.[15] Islet transplantation for type 1 diabetes currently requires potent immunosuppression to prevent host rejection of donor islets.[17] An alternative source of beta cells, such insulin-producing cells derived from adult stem cells or progenitor cells would contribute to ...
