Distal tibia fractures are one of the most demanding injuries in orthopaedic traumatology, due mainly to frequent coexistence of covering tissue problems and poor blood supply. Smoking exerts a detrimental effect on fracture healing, increasing the time to union. We report the case of a 60-year-old heavy-smoker (about 20 cigarettes a day) with a distal tibia fracture that necessitated synthesis with an external fixator to maximize the healing process, which nevertheless required more than one and half year to heal...

Clinical nurses often struggle with a lack of time and proficiency when it comes to finding and reviewing research. Knowing where to start, and discerning which search terms will retrieve the best results, can be arduous. As expert searchers, medical librarians have the skills and knowledge to make significant contributions to the clinical team, helping nurses navigate information resources and research from start to finish. When there is not direct access to a librarian, the toolbox of resources outlined in the article can save nurses' time and effort when they require quality, evidence-based information...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Because of shorter hospitalizations, patients now have to take responsibility for their recovery period at a very early stage. We evaluated the effects of structured, nurse-managed telephone follow-up (TFU) after discharge from the hospital following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHOD/DESIGN: The design was a single-center, unblinded, parallel-group randomized clinical trial. The primary outcome was self-reported physical function according to the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) Index...

BACKGROUND: Veterans are prone to bone-related illnesses due to multiple risk factors such as prior injuries. The aim of this study was to compare trends in osteoporosis preventive practices between veteran and nonveteran older adults. METHODS: This was a secondary data analysis using selected baseline data and discussion postings from an online bone health trial including participants (N = 866) recruited from My HealtheVet (MHV) and SeniorNet (SN). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, parametric statistics, and content analysis...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have evaluated whether patients with a diagnosis of gout adhere to alcohol use recommendations and the relationship between adherence and activity limitations. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine adherence to American College of Rheumatology (ACR) alcohol use recommendations and evaluate the relationship between alcohol use and activity limitations in persons with gout. METHOD: A secondary analysis was performed with a sample of 298 persons with gout from the 2008 National Health Interview Survey...

BACKGROUND: Rehabilitation outcomes for patients with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) after hospital discharge are not well understood. PURPOSE: The purpose of this retrospective cohort study was to describe outpatient physical therapy (PT) after TKA and compare short-term (2 months) functional and clinical outcomes of patients following TKA who were discharged from the hospital to home and received (a) outpatient PT immediately (OP) or (b) home health PT before outpatient PT (HH)...

Arun Aneja, Patrick Leung, Alejandro Marquez-Lara
Lifting and holding upper and lower limbs during the "prep and drape" portion of certain orthopaedic procedures exert strong forces on the holder and may lead to musculoskeletal disorders. To address these challenges during upper extremity procedures, this article describes a hand-free elevation and traction technique of the upper limbs during preoperative skin preparation with the use of items readily available within the operating room (OR). This technique is particularly useful for heavy or fractured limbs that may impose a physical challenge to lift and maintain in a stable position...

Musculoskeletal injuries in the occupational setting have significant impact on the worker, employer, and healthcare system. The commercial truck driver (CTD) experiences some of the highest rates of injury, missed days of work, and workers' compensation costs compared with other workers. In this population, the back is most commonly affected whereas shoulder injuries are the second but require 5 times more days away from work. Commercial truck drivers are significantly impacted by shoulder injuries; however, little is known about the unique mechanisms of injury, specific injuries, or possible preventative measures among this group of workers...
