Pyle's disease is an extremely rare skeletal disorder characterized by a benign course and an autosomal recessive genetic pattern of inheritance. Its causal mutation is still unknown. In the medical literature, fewer than 30 cases have been described to date. We report the case of two female siblings, daughters of consanguineous parents, referred to the radiology department complaining of genu valgum. Laboratory tests showed no other relevant findings. Conventional radiography plain films revealed Erlenmeyer flask deformity in bilateral femorotibial metaphyses, metaphyseal flaring of long bones, and mild sclerosis of the skull base...

This study monitored three different activated sludge systems from the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Plant for a 1 year period to explore the relationship between effluent quality and activated sludge settling and flocculation behavior. Hindered settling rates (ISV) and sludge volume index (SVI) measurements were collected weekly. Novel metrics based on the solids concentration at which the transition between settling regimens occurred were also collected weekly. The transitional metrics were Threshold of Flocculation (TOF), and Limit of Stokesian Settling (LOSS)...

Three-dimensional (3D) nanometal scaffolds have gained considerable attention recently because of their promising application in high-performance supercapacitors compared with plain metal foils. Here, a highly oriented nickel (Ni) nanowire array (NNA) film was prepared via a simple magnetic-field-driven aqueous solution deposition process and then used as the electrode scaffold for the vapor-phase polymerization of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT). Benefiting from the unique 3D open porous structure of the NNA that provided a highly conductive and oriented backbone for facile electron transfer and fast ion diffusion, the as-obtained poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) exhibited an ultra-long cycle life (95...

The intraosseous fluid sign (IFS) in chronic osteoporotic vertebral fractures is attributed to fluid accumulation within non-healing intervertebral clefts. IFS can also be seen in acute traumatic fractures, not previously described. We hypothesize a pathophysiological mechanism for the acute traumatic intraosseous fluid sign (ATIFS) and its predisposition to dynamic fracture mobility with axial loading on upright radiographs. Retrospective analysis was performed of 41 acute thoracic and lumbar compression or stable burst fractures with both supine CT and upright plain films completed within 1 week of each other...

Stercoral perforation of the colon is rare but carries with it significant morbidity and mortality. Stercoral perforation usually occurs in elderly, immobile patients with chronic constipation. In this manuscript, we report the case of stercoral perforation in a patient due to chronic heroin dependence. We report the case of a 56-year-old male patient with stercoral perforation, diagnosed by computed tomography, secondary to heroin dependence, requiring proctocolectomy and an end ileostomy. There are very few reports in the literature describing cases of stercoral perforation and questions have been asked about the importance of preoperative cross-sectional imaging...

Aqueous polymeric films have potentially great values in drug development, particularly in controlled drug release and taste masking strategies. However the progressive polymer-particle coalescence that occurs randomly during film formation, curing and storage may render the film less permeable leading to erratic and unpredictable drug release profile. The focus of this study was to investigate the impacts of the in situ formation of polymer-drug nanoconjugate, at the interfacial nano-domains of two oppositely charged polymers, on the mechanism of film formation and to prepare aqueous ternary polymer-drug-polymer nanomatrix films as a novel green strategy for the delivery of ibuprofen, a model poorly soluble drug...

BACKGROUND: Advanced thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) osteoarthritis (OA) can cause substantial impairment in hand function, from grasping heavy objects to fine manipulation of implements and tools. In the clinical setting, we commonly measure the grip strength of gross grasp with a hand dynamometer in patients with CMC OA. Cylindrical grasp, which requires more thumb contribution than gross grasp, is an alternative method of measuring grip strength and one that may provide insight into thumb-related conditions...

A 12-year-old boy with a past medical history of nickel allergy was referred to our service after sustaining an air rifle injury with a retained BB in his left inferior orbit. On examination, he had a palpable orbital mass and systemic urticaria. Plain films demonstrated a spherical metallic foreign body adjacent to the left inferior orbital rim. Given his worsening systemic reaction despite oral antihistamine therapy, decision was made to remove the foreign body. In the operating room, the Allergan Magna Finder-a prepackaged, sterile device normally used for retrieval of a port used in tissue expansion surgery-was placed over the inferior conjunctiva of the lower eyelid...

BACKGROUND: Periprosthetic fractures of the acetabulum occurring during primary THA are rare. Periprosthetic occult fractures are defined as those not identified by the surgeon during the procedure which might be missed on a routine postoperative radiograph. However, it is unclear how frequently these fractures occur and whether their presence affects functional recovery. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: In this study, using routine CT scans that were obtained as part of another primary hip arthroplasty study protocol, we retrospectively assessed (1) the prevalence of occult fractures of the acetabulum occurring during primary THA, (2) the location of occult fractures of the acetabulum during THA, and (3) risk factors contributing to such occult fractures...

Exact localization of foreign body is important for planning the treatment required for its retrieval without much tissue damage. Plain film radiography is the initial screening modality used for the detection of suspected foreign body. However, about one-third of all the foreign bodies are missed in the initial radiographic examination. In case of a wooden foreign body, only 15% are well-visualized on plain radiographs and are, therefore, often missed or misdiagnosed. Hence, the different radiographic technique should be used to localize the object instead of relying on a single radiographic image...

Non-displaced hip fractures can be difficult to diagnose on plain film radiographs. When there is ongoing clinical suspicion of an occult fracture, further imaging is obtained. We investigated the sensitivity of computed tomography (CT) scans in detecting these fractures and the delays to surgery that three-dimensional imaging causes. We identified 78 CT scans performed for possible hip fractures over the past 3 years with the presence and absence of a fracture recorded. Based on subsequent imaging, the accuracy of CT scans was determined...

BACKGROUND: Lesions involving the outer cortical surface of the bone occur quite often among children. Broadly, these include benign cortical, juxtacortical and periarticular lesions, dysplasias affecting the cortical bone, regional and diffuse periosteal pathology and malignant tumours. Some of these lesions are unique to the paediatric population; others are more frequently seen among children than adults - yet others have an adult predilection but can occasionally be seen in children...

Morel-Lavellée lesions are soft tissue degloving injuries resulting from shearing trauma that induces separation of the superficial and deep fascias creating a potential space that becomes filled with hemolymph. Here we present a case of a 28-year-old male presenting with a persistent Type I Morel-Lavallée lesion 2.5 years after an automobile versus pedestrian accident. These lesions can be visualized via computed tomography, plain film and ultrasound, but magnetic resonance imaging is the modality of choice for their identification and characterization...

We propose an optimum low-temperature-based annealing procedure for semicrystalline donor-fullerene solar cells that is well-suited for plastic and flexible substrates. This proposed alternate strategy utilizes an external electric field (EF) across the bulk heterojunction (BHJ) film during processing at a desired temperature. This processing technique is studied for different molecular weights of the donor in the BHJ blend films. The films indicate an increase in interchain interactions of the semicrystalline polymer chains and an enhancement in hole mobility with EF-assisted annealing treatment...
