PY - 2012/3. Y1 - 2012/3. N2 - Background: Options for repair of distal biceps tendon ruptures are well-described. However, scant data exist in the literature regarding failure strength of the native tendon. We hypothesize that a) the distal biceps tendon failure strength is sensitive to loading angle, and b) the failure strength is greater than what has been previously reported in the literature. Methods: 15 radii were potted in a simulated supine position, and the native tendon was pulled from the tuberosity at angles of 90, 60, and 30° of flexion (5 per group) relative to the long axis of the radius. The failure load and stiffness were recorded and compared. Findings: The native tendons mean failure load tended to increase as flexion angle decreased. Due to the large variability in strength, mean ...
This course covers the initial assessment, examination and management of upper limb injuries presenting to the ED or Minor Injuries Unit, including in-depth X ray interpretation. Normal variants and frequently missed injuries are examined, along with commonly encountered conditions. Practical examples and case-based scenarios are used throughout. The course is suitable for Emergency Nurse Practitioners, trainee doctors in Emergency Medicine, physiotherapists working in the ED, and others involved in the initial care of upper limb injuries.
Distal biceps tendon rupture is a rare injury which results in loss of flexion and supination strength. Disruption invariably occurs at the radial tuberosity. Early direct reattachment with a modified two incision Boyd-Anderson type repair is depicted in the following series. Under tourniquet, the tendon is exposed through a volar S incision at the elbow. The hematoma is evacuated and the tendon is identified ...
Abnormal movement patterns are one of the most challenging problems during rehabilitation of the patients with upper extremity injuries. They usually decrease the functional status of the upper extremity and prevent isolated muscle activations. Dysfunction of the kinetic chain system plays an important role in the development of these movement patterns. Thus, multi-segmental rehabilitation strategies has recently gained considerable importance in upper extremity rehabilitation. Core stabilization is one of the most popular rehabilitation approaches preferred to enhance functional stability of the kinetic chain system and dynamic postural alignment during activities. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of core stabilization approach on functional status of the upper extremity and the amount of abnormal movement patterns. In addition, the factors affecting the abnormal movement patterns will be determined ...

Objectives: To define upper extremity outcome measures focusing on trauma and level of initial psychometric evaluation and to assess methodological quality of relevant patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures. Data Sources: A broad search strategy using PubMed, OVID, CINAHL, and PsycINFO was deployed and reported using PRISMA (PROSPERO: CRD42016046243). Study Selection Extraction Synthesis: PRO measures involving orthopedic trauma in their original development were selected and original publications assessed, including psychometric evaluations. Extraction, synthesis, and quality assessment were performed using COSMIN. Results: Of 144 upper extremity outcome measures, the majority were designed for the shoulder, wrist, and hand; 20% (n = 29/144) involved trauma conditions in their initial development, PRO measurements, and psychometric evaluation on introduction. Methodological quality was highly variable. Conclusion: A few PRO measures were originally designed for use in upper extremity trauma.

Most available studies on venous injuries secondary to penetrating trauma to the lower extremity are retrospective in nature. There is virtually no data available on isolated venous injuries. Except for Borman et al., virtually no one has attempted to diagnose venous injuries preoperatively.[12] Even in this paper, in which 30% of patients had a preoperative venogram, 90% of the patients underwent exploration for the indication of suspected arterial injury. Since most patients with penetrating trauma to the lower extremity get evaluated for the possibility of arterial injury, there is probably an unknown population of patients with normal arterial evaluations and undiagnosed isolated venous injuries. There are no data to show adverse sequelae of missed isolated venous injuries. Thus neither the natural history nor the optimum management of isolated venous injuries is known. It is reasonable to assume that only the isolated injuries that present themselves because of active bleeding need to be ...

This study was set up to test our hypothesis that using the Jamar dynamometer a voluntary submaximal effort has a greater variability compared to a real maximal effort, especially when there is a long interval between different measurements. We tested 32 volunteers without a history of upper limb injury or operation in our hospital, with an interval of four to five weeks between tests. Each volunteer was asked to grip first right-handed then left-handed, first with a real maximal effort and then with a submaximal effort. This test was performed twice during the same session. The same individuals were seen again one month later and were studied using the same protocol. Sensitivities and specificities for the grip test were calculated using six different criteria to indicate a submaximal effort. Repeated grip testing with a time interval of one month cannot reliably detect voluntary submaximal effort in healthy volunteers ...

Treatment of distal biceps tendon partial tear Distal biceps tendon tear can be treated by avoiding invasive activities and also using pain-relieving medication with the use of ice in the affected area. As the pain reduces, there affected area should be stretched gently to strengthen it. This may fail and result in constant pain. In such as case surgery can be recommended. This will involve several procedures including the re-attachment of the distal biceps tendon. Depending on the severity, you may require one or two incisions. However, you dont have to go through all this complex and painful procedure. This is because recently regenerative medicine techniques called Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy has been developed that can actually help heal this condition safer and quicker than surgery without the invasive techniques of surgery. Thats not all; the recovery time is typically much faster when this technique is used. You can contact us to learn more about how these procedures help repair ...

The total number of fractures of the upper and lower extremities treated in physician offices, emergency departments, and hospitals, while fluctuating from year to year, has varied between 12 million and 15 million from 1998 to 2010. Upper limb fractures, including those of the arm, forearm, wrist, hand, and fingers, have accounted for slightly more than one-half of all fractures, with a range of 52% to 59%. Fractures of the upper arm, or humerus, are the least common. In recent years, upper arm fractures have accounted for about 20% of total upper limb fractures. Fractures of the wrist, hand, and fingers occur slightly more often than fractures of the forearm ...

A new study suggests that number of people who go to the emergency department (ED) for a broken arm could rise by nearly a third by 2030, when the youngest baby boomers turn 65, says an article by Reuters. Researchers analyzed data on 28 million ED visits across the United States in 2008 and found 370,000 cases of humerus fractures. Children ages 5-9 accounted for the highest overall number of humerus breaks, but the arm injuries also spiked among women after age 40 and men after age 60. The researchers report that 38.7 million Americans were 65 or older in 2008, but in 2030, that number will be 71.5 million. In their article, published in Arthritis Care Research, the researchers project 490,000 ED visits for humerus breaks in that year, with much of the increase likely to be among older Americans.. The highest number of proximal humerus breaks, an injury often associated with falls, was seen in both men and women after age 45. Those rates kept rising until about age 84. Women were more than ...

Some specialties (orthopedic surgery, for example) will be forced to create much larger superbills, unless they limit their practice to a specific body part. But the basic premise is the same. However, because of the specificity of ICD-10, and the few areas of the code book that do not contain a Not Otherwise Specified code, youll be forced to change your documentation style, or be unable to find codes for some conditions. Remember that anatomy and laterality are key in ICD-10, along with dominance (mostly for neurological conditions). Your documentation should indicate R vs L, along with whether the patient is R or L hand dominant. You might have been able to find a code for R arm fracture in the past, but now youll need to document the bone(s) involved, including the area of the bone involved. This does mean some increase in documentation, but these increases have the potential to improve documentation greatly. Continuity of care can be improved with these changes, and exchange of ...
