Radial club hand may be congenital or acquired; radial deviation of the hand is usually found, associated with palmar flexion-pronation and treatment of severe forms of radial club hand is often difficult. Here we present a case of reconstruction of a severe postraumatic radial club hand with a free fibular osteoseptocutaneous flap and Sauve-Kapandji procedure in a 28-year-old man. The patient had a radial deviation of the wrist and right upper limb shortening as a result of an infected pseudarthrosis of the radius...

OBJECTIVE: Fulranumab is an antibody that specifically neutralizes the biologic activity of human nerve growth factor. This multicenter, phase-2, randomized, double-blind (DB), placebo-controlled study evaluated the analgesic efficacy and safety of fulranumab in postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) and posttraumatic neuropathy (PTN) patients. METHODS: Patients (18-80 y) with inadequately controlled moderate-to-severe pain received study medication (subcutaneous injection) every 4 weeks...

STUDY DESIGN: Radiographic and clinical analysis. OBJECTIVE: Review author's experience with anterior discectomy, interbody fusion, and anterior cervical plating in 33 patients with posttraumatic unilateral cervical locked facets. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Unilateral cervical locked facet syndrome is a relatively uncommon injury that often is misdiagnosed and therefore subject to a dangerous delay in surgery. Management of this trauma is controversial...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to provide a quantitative evaluation of the blood-aqueous barrier (BAB) in patients with ocular blunt trauma and evaluate its association with intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation. METHODS: This is a prospective case-control study, and the following 3 groups were included: elevated IOP (45 patients with an elevated IOP secondary to ocular blunt trauma), normal IOP (27 patients with a normal IOP after ocular blunt trauma), and healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Posttraumatic endophthalmitis is a rare but another extremely threatening complication for quality of vision, which has already been compromised by the trauma after perforating eye injuries. One of the substantial difficulties is the distinction between posttraumatic inflammation and development of a bacterial infection. METHODS: In a hospital-based study 149 consecutive cases of perforating ocular trauma with open injuries to the eye within a 5-year period were retrospectively investigated...

Arterial priapism is a rare condition in pediatric patients, caused by a fistula between the cavernous artery and the sinusoids of the corpus cavernosum, usually secondary to perineal trauma. We report the case of a 16 year old child with arterial priapism of 5 days duration following a fall astride, successfully treated by superselective arterial embolization with absorbable material. Six months later the patient had complete detumescence without secondary erectile dysfunction. Arterial embolization in pediatric patients is complex due to the smaller arterial size and the need to control the contralateral internal pudendal artery to prevent the development of complications...

INTRODUCTION: Crime consequences are not only a security problem; they are also a community health question. Because shop assistants are particularly exposed to crime victimization, they are at risk from suffering posttraumatic stress disorders. OBJECTIVES: To describe posttraumatic symptomatology of crime victimized shop assistants and to explore the relationship between the symptoms and demographic, victim and situational factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Self-reported information about mental symptomatology was gathered from 126 victimized shop assistants identified during cross-sectional study...

INTRODUCTION: Our objectives are to describe the microbial spectrum and antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates from patients with culture-proven endophthalmitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of patients with microbiological diagnosis of endophthalmitis treated at the Ophthalmology Department of the General Hospital La Mancha Centro in the period 1996-2008. The identification of isolates was performed using the automated VITEK-2® and Api galleries (bioMérieux, Spain SA)...

OBJECTIVE: To Present the benefits of free autologous fat grafts in different pathologies of children. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study was performed on 18 patients who received a treatment with an autologous fat graft during the 2009-2012 period. The surgical technique consisted in removing fat from a donor region, processing the fat in order to purify it by centrifugation and grafting injection. The following variables were analysed: age, sex, pathology, complications of the technique, visual aspects results, subjective results (by rating satisfaction from 1-4 in examination room, and by telephone), donor sites and number of sessions...

BACKGROUND: Most research on women veterans' mental health has focused on postraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or reactions to military sexual trauma. Although depression is also a frequent diagnosis among women veterans, little is known about its characteristics, including comorbid conditions and patterns of disorder onset. We investigated lifetime diagnoses of major depressive disorder (MDD) and comorbid conditions in a primarily treatment-seeking research sample of male and female veterans to determine frequency of lifetime MDD, comorbid disorders and their temporal onset...

INTRODUCTION: The most common cause of osteoarthritis of the ankle is post-traumatic, and although tibiotalar arthrodesis remains the surgical gold standard, a number of techniques have been described to preserve joint mobility, such as joint distraction arthroplasty or arthrodiastasis. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the functional outcome and changes in Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) for pain after the application of the distraction arthroplasty for post-traumatic ankle osteoarthritis...

A case of 21-year-old woman with postraumatic giant direct carotid-cavernous fistula, successfully treated by endovascular embilisation with cyanoacrylate glue, is presented. Stent-assisted coils placement is the method of choice for the treatment of patients with carotid-cavernous fistulas, but closure of direct fistula with cyanoacrylate glue can be alternative, safety and efficient technique especially in cases in which standard interventions offer increased risk or in which other methods have failed.

BACKGROUND: A lot has changed in terms of intervention technique, indications and embolic agents since Duggan introduced embolization to management of postraumatic epistaxis in 1970. Embolization is used in treatment of spontaneous and traumatic epistaxis, palliative tumors and vascular defects, as well as vascularized tumors and juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas. The possibility of simultaneous visualization of pathology and implementation of therapy is one of its greatest advantages...

Defining the ideal material for frontal sinus obliteration remains controversial. Autogenous cancellous bone is effective because of its biological properties: it undergoes fast revascularization acting as an active scaffold for bone healing, but is linked to additional donor site morbidity. Bone dust harvesting from the skull surface produces no sequelae but availability is limited. Many efforts have been made to overcome these drawbacks, and an ideal bone substitute sought. Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBX; Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, Edison, NJ, USA) is a commercially available product composed of demineralized bone particles reduced after proper processing of human bone in combination with sodium hyaluronate...

Total replacement remains a successful solution for degenerative, inflammatory and postraumatic diseases in large joints. This treatment has considerably improved the quality of life of the patients. Despite recent innovations in biomaterials, implant design and surgical technique, there are still failures, most of them related to wear at the surface of some component. Particles are generated that produce inflammatoty and osteolytic reactions leading to implant loosening. In that case, revision surgery is mandatory to remove and substitute the worn component...
