At mean 125.6 months, pain was reduced from mean of 8.7 to 0.67, p < .001. Each of three patients, two of whom were musicians, returned to full professional ability. It is concluded that volar CMC joint denervation is a useful procedure, preserving joint function and relieving pain long-term.

An intratendinous ganglion of the hand is a rare entity, and only one case report of flexor tendon has been published in the English literature. We herein report two cases of an intratendinous ganglion occurring in the extensor digitorum communis and flexor digitorum superficialis tendon, respectively.

The use of acellular dermal matrices (ADM) for dural repair is very scantily described in the literature. We report two cases of dural repair using porcine ADM and a literature review. ADM and especially Strattice(TM) pliable may be a useful alternative to other dural substitutes. Further evaluation would be favorable.

Septic arthritis of the wrist is rare entity, especially; atypical mycobacterial infection of the wrist is extremely rare. We report a case of septic arthritis of the wrist caused by Mycobacterium intracellulare, which was successfully treated by radical debridement followed by wrist arthrodesis using vascularised fibular grafting.

Digital papillary adenocarcinoma (DPAca) is an aggressive lesion with high metastatic potential, which is easily misdiagnosed. We present a 55-year-old male with a cystic lesion on his right thumb. Above all else, lesions of the digits should be sent for histopathology routinely, regardless of their history or appearance.

Here, we report a case of insulin-derived amyloidosis in the lower abdomen. The mass continued to develop even after the patient ceased injecting insulin into the mass. Histological examination led to a diagnosis of insulin-derived amyloidosis. Excision is preferable in cases of insulin-derived amyloidosis if patient's condition permits.

The exposure of prosthetic vascular graft is a dangerous complication in revascularization procedures. In this case report, we describe a successful coverage of an exposed prosthetic femorofemoral vascular graft in the suprapubic area, with a vertical rectus abdominis myocutaneous (VRAM) island flap.

We report two cases of poliomyelitis in which an anterolateral thigh myocutaneous free flap was harvested from the paralytic limb for oral reconstruction. We observed a decrease in the pedicle diameter of the anterolateral thigh flap, but the blood supply to the skin paddle was adequate.

We present an unusual case of flash burn injury in an adolescent following accidental combination of foaming bath bubbles and tea light candle flame. There has not been any reported similar case described before. This serves as a learning point for public prevention and clinicians managing burn injuries.

Sporothrix schenckii, the causative agent of sporotrichosis, is a relatively rare infection. Local infection usually occurs through direct inoculation of the organism through the skin; disseminated disease is rarely seen. This article describes a case of disseminated sporotrichosis in a middle-aged man without the commonly seen risk factors for dissemination.

We report a case of a woman affected by covered exstrophy, uterus didelphys and external genital malformation presenting with advanced bladder cancer.

Radial head represents a secondary elbow stabilizer for varus-valgus and postero-lateral stress. In complex fractures, that cannot be synthesized, the presence of associated ligament injuries makes radial head replacement necessary to restore elbow stability. This study evaluates how the elbow responds to a prosthetic removal after a complex injury repair.
