Jatin Prakash, Anil Mehtani
The management of neglected fracture of the lateral condyle of the humerus is controversial. Careful neglect and conservative management with early ulnar nerve transposition and ostetomy, in-situ surgical fixation and accurate open reduction and internal fixation are all recommended as treatment options. However, an overgrowth of fractured condyle, highly distorted anatomy, contracted soft tissue and almost unrecognizable fracture ends make open reduction a challenging task. As the functional loss is not severe, in-situ fixation of the fragment provides a good alternative...

Minimally invasive surgery is increasing in popularity. It is relevant in hallux valgus surgery owing to the potential for reduced disruption of the soft tissues and improved wound healing. We present our results and assess the learning curve of the minimally invasive Chevron Akin operation for hallux valgus. A total of 120 consecutive feet underwent minimally invasive Chevron Akin for symptomatic hallux valgus, of which 14 were excluded. They were followed up for a mean of 25 (range 18 to 38) months. The patients were clinically assessed using the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society score...

Immediate breast reconstruction is an important tool for patients to accept and overcome their breast cancer, as well as for cosmetic reasons. However, its use in patients who require postmastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) is not yet clear. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of PMRT and reconstruction on each other. The time of initiation of PMRT, the prognosis, and the cosmetic results were investigated in patients who underwent immediate reconstruction using autologous tissue. In the case of delayed reconstruction using autologous tissue after PMRT, radiation damage of the chest skin, design of the flap, and cosmetic results were investigated...

In minimal invasive cardiac surgery (MICS), the surgeon is missing haptic feedback of the guide wire for navigation through the vessels. A wide range of guide wires with various properties and performance characteristics are available to reduce the risk of complications during the intervention. This paper presents a force sensing guide wire for cardiac catheterization, which provides the surgeon a haptic feedback on the guide wire tip. Three conventional wires for the recanalization of chronic total coronary occlusions (CTO) are investigated and general design requirements for the force sensing guide wire are determined...

Lipomas of the colon are relatively rare benign soft tissue tumors derived from mature adipocytes of mesenchymatic origin. During colonoscopy, surgery or autopsy they are generally discovered incidentally. Most cases are asymptomatic, with a small tumor size, and do not need any special treatment. However, in the cases with larger in size of tumor some symptoms such as anemia, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, bleeding, or intussusception may be presented. We reported a 47-year-old woman with colonic intussusception in the descending colon caused by colonic lipoma and diagnosed after surgical exploration for obstructive colonic mass...

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related sclerosing disease is a recently proposed systemic fibroinflammatory disease entity, with periaortitis as a representative manifestation in the cardiovascular system. We present a case of IgG4-related periaortitis involving the aortic arch and proximal great vessels, mimicking an anterior mediastinal tumor on computed tomography. In patients with a soft tissue mass along the aortic wall, IgG4-related periaortitis should be included as a differential diagnosis and timely serologic investigation should be performed to prevent unnecessary surgery, because the disease shows a remarkable response to corticosteroids...
