*  More Research Needed into Management of Facial Paralysis from Intratemporal Blunt Trauma - ENTtoday
Background: Many temporal bone fractures, most commonly from motor vehicle accidents, are complicated by facial nerve dysfunction. Frequently, the initial diagnosis of facial nerve injury is delayed due to the altered mental status of the patient and the attention diverted to life-threatening injuries. Multiple factors, such as the onset of nerve dysfunction and test results, can determine management.. Study design: Literature review.. Setting: Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences, Medical College of Wisconsin and Affiliated Hospitals, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.. Synopsis: A systematic literature review identified 35 relevant articles in PubMed, with the majority of articles reporting paresis secondary to a temporal bone fracture. All studies were classified as level four evidence as defined by the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. Marked variation in the quality of the studies, with inconsistent outcome measures, diagnostic testing and follow-up, ...
*  E-Health Topics-Extradural Haematoma
What is an extradural haematoma?. An extradural haematoma is a collection of blood in the epidural space. 'Extradural' means outside the dura.. What causes an extradural haematoma?. Spinal extradural haematoma. A spinal extradural haematoma is less common than an intracranial extradural haematoma. Sometimes a spinal extradural haematoma can occur after trauma or an injury around the spinal area. For example, it can (rarely) occur after a lumbar puncture (a procedure where a sample of fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord is taken with a needle to help diagnose conditions such as meningitis). It may also (rarely) occur after an epidural anaesthetic (a common type of pain relief used during childbirth and for other reasons). Intracranial extradural haematoma. An extradural haematoma usually occurs inside the head, most commonly after a fractured skull caused by a head injury. The fractured skull bone can cause separation of the dura ...

206. Case 34.-An engineer, working with a crane, was struck on the left shoulder by a falling steel beam. Roentgenologic examination an hour later showed a linear fracture of the acromion process without displacement, avulsion of the coracoid process, and acromioclavicular separation. The plaster abduction splint of Key and Conwell was considered more practical in this case, because of the swelling and ecchymosis over the dorsum of the shoulder, than a splint which required the pressure of a shoulder strap to be effective. The dorsal section of the cast was removed at the end of 2 weeks, and massage and biceps-setting exercises were ordered. The remainder of the cast was removed 4 weeks later, and limited exercises were undertaken. At 8 weeks, use of the shoulder wheel was begun. Roentgenologic examination at this time showed union of the coracoid process and the scapula, with complete healing of the fracture of the acromion process. When the man returned to duty 12 weeks ...
*  Lateral Humeral Condyle Fracture: Background, Anatomy, Pathophysiology
In 1883, Stimson first described the fracture patterns in lateral condyle fractures in his book Treatise on Fractures. He described the fracture as beginning in the lateral metaphysis proximal to the condyle, coursing distally, and exiting through the articular surface through the medial trochlear notch or through the capitellotrochlear groove.
*  Open reduction and internal fixation of extracapsular mandibular condyle fractures: a long-term clinical and radiological...
In the period between 2003 and 2011, 40 patients visited our clinic for the surgical treatment of mandibular condyle fractures. The inclusion criteria for this study were as follows: adolescent or adult patients in good health, presence of neck and subcondylar mandibular fractures associated with post-traumatic dental malocclusion, and alteration of the temporomandibular joint functionality on radiological examination. Edentulous patients and patients below the age of 15 years were excluded. All the 40 patients were contacted by telephone and invited to volunteer for clinical and radiological examinations, but only 25 patients accepted our invitation and were finally included in this study. The study involved 18 males (72%) and 7 females (28%) (male/female ratio, 2.5/1), and the age at the time of injury ranged from 16 to 55 years (mean age, 27 years). The most frequent causes of injury were road traffic accidents (60%) followed by accidental falls (32%) and personal ...

*  Elongated Skulls in utero: A Farewell to the Artificial Cranial Deformation Paradigm? | Ancient Origins
Elongated Skull from Crimea and other parts of the worlds, Baer 1860 What evidence could challenge this paradigm? Right - the existence of fetuses with elongated skulls, i.e. evidence that such skulls already had an elongated shape in utero , before any head-binding was possible. Do we have such evidence? Yes, we do! Moreover, this evidence has been known to the academic community for over 163 years! Rivero and Tschudi in Peruvian Antiquities (1851 Spanish, 1853 English) argue that the protagonists of the artificial cranial deformation hypothesis are mistaken, since they had only considered the skulls of adults. In other words, the hypothesis fails to take into account the skulls of infants and, most importantly, foetuses which had similar elongated skull shape. It is worth quoting Rivero and Tschudi: "We ourselves have observed the same fact [of the absence of signs of artificial pressure - IG] in many ...

In most cases, this was difficult to avoid. However, we consistently advised clients that certain cases should be considered for litigation back to the Appellate Court to clarify the ruling in particularly egregious cases where payment of TTD really did appear to be unwarranted.. Now, we get some case law to support our consistent recommendations to our clients and interested observers.. In Holocker v. IWCC (Komatsu America Corp.), No. 3-16-0363WC, 06/16/2017, the Illinois Appellate Court ruled that a worker who was fired before attaining maximum medical improvement for his industrial injuries was not entitled to TTD benefits after he lost his job.. By way of background, Scott Holocker worked for the Komatsu America on crane duty when a chain broke loose from a crane he was operating in September 2012, striking him in the face and chest. The blow knocked out four teeth and caused facial fractures.. Holocker missed one month of work, returning to light duty in October 2012 and to full duty in ...
