STUDY DESIGN: Case report. INTRODUCTION: Development of extensor tendon adhesions is a common complication after intra-articular metacarpal head fracture. Whenever these adhesions cannot be mobilized by rehabilitation, tenolysis should be considered. However, the decision for tenolysis is often delayed. When the rehabilitation program comes to a plateau and clinical examination may not be sufficient to find out the cause, dynamic ultrasound (US) can show where the gliding mechanism is disrupted and help clinicians to give an accurate decision for determining the next steps...

BACKGROUND: The distal ulna hook plate was recently introduced for the treatment of fifth metatarsal base fractures, but no special articles have reported the surgical results of the plate fixation of displaced or comminuted fifth metatarsal base fractures in zone 1, which are the most common forefoot fractures. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with Lawrence classification zone 1 fifth metatarsal base fractures with extra-articular displacement greater than 2 mm (n = 13) and intra-articular displacement fractures (n = 8) were included in the study...

Sclerostin antibody (Scl-Ab) restored bone mass and strength in the ovariectomized rat model of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Increased bone mineral density (BMD) and decreased skeletal fragility fracture risk have been reported in postmenopausal osteoporotic women receiving Scl-Ab. In males, loss of androgen leads to rapid decreases in BMD and increased risk for fragility fractures. We hypothesized that Scl-Ab could reverse the loss of bone mass and strength caused by androgen ablation in the orchiectomized (ORX) rat model of male osteoporosis...

BACKGROUND: The direct anterior approach (DAA) in total hip arthroplasty is of significant interest to both patients and surgeons, largely due to intense marketing. This study addressed the question, "What is the level of promotion of DAA total hip arthroplasty on the internet by American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) members?" METHODS: An internet search was performed to identify surgeon-specific websites for each member of the AAHKS using the members' full name and a previously published set of criteria...

INTRODUCTION: The 5th metacarpal fractures accounts for 38% of all hand fractures given that the neck is the weakest point in metacarpals, so neck fracture is the most common metacarpal fracture. Surgical fixation is also advocated for such fractures to prevent mal-rotation of the little finger which will lead to fingers overlap in a clenched fist. Various methods are available for fixation of such fractures, like intramedullary & transverse pinning. There are very few reports in the literature comparing both techniques...

Fractures of the proximal fifth metatarsal are relatively common and can be treated with a variety of treatment modalities. The goals of the current study were to answer the following questions: (1) Is there a difference in functional outcomes with different nonoperative treatment modalities for avulsion and Jones fractures? (2) What is the long-term functional impairment? This study included 53 patients who were treated for proximal fifth metatarsal fracture at 1 university health care system between 2004 and 2013...

OBJECTIVE Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a major complication of spinal fractures in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH). Due to the uncommon nature of these conditions, existing literature consists of relatively small case series without detailed neurological data. This study aims to investigate the incidence, predictors, and sequelae of SCI in patients with a traumatic fracture of the ankylosed spine. METHODS The study included all patients older than 18 years of age with AS or DISH who presented to two affiliated tertiary care centers between January 1, 1990, and January 1, 2016, and had a traumatic fracture of the spine...

BACKGROUND: Fifth metacarpal fractures are often treated nonoperatively with serial radiographs; however, the utility of these radiographs in altering clinical management has not been investigated. We hypothesize that follow-up plain films will not alter clinical management and are therefore unnecessary for most patients. METHODS: Between 2007 and 2014, patients with a fifth metacarpal fracture at our level I trauma center were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with inadequate documentation or imaging, ipsilateral upper extremity injuries, or who underwent initial surgical fixation were excluded...

Fifth metacarpal neck fracture commonly requires open reduction and internal fixation. Locking plate was widely adopted in the treatment of fifth metacarpal neck fracture as first-line choice for fixation. Patients with fifth metacarpal neck fracture receiving locking plate fixation were included for analysis. Features of internal fixation including number of distal and proximal locking screws, diameter of the screws and usage of lag screws were recorded. Clinical and radiographic outcomes included final volar angulation, grip strength, Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire (MHQ) and range of motion (ROM) of fifth metacarpophalangeal joint...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The prevalence of work-related oral trauma is underestimated because minor dental injuries are often not reported in patients with several injuries in different parts of the body. In addition, little data are available regarding their characteristics. The aim of this epidemiological study was to determine the prevalence, types and characteristics of occupational traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) in a large working community. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Work-related TDIs that occurred during the period between 2011 and 2013 in the District of Genoa (Northwest of Italy, 0...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this open prospective cohort study was to determine if a prolonged pre-operative hospital stay is a true predictor of higher morbidity or mortality in geriatric patients with hip fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analysed early outcome parameters, such as functional independence measure (FIM), at discharge and four months post-operatively, peri-operative nonsurgical complications, intra-hospital and one year mortality compared with prolonged pre-operative hospital stay in 308 patients from a continuous cohort of 344...

Lin Xie, Xin Guo, Shu-Jun Zhang, Zhen-Hua Fang
BACKGROUND: Intramedullary screw (IMS) fixation was wildly used in fifth metatarsal base fractures (FMBFs) and the results were satisfactory. However, in the comminuted osteoporosis or small displaced avulsion FMBFs, anatomical reduction and stable fixation could not be achieved with IMS. The Locking Compression Plate (LCP) distal ulna hook plate fixation was a novel alternative fixation method. The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to determine if LCP distal ulna hook plate fixation resulted in improved outcomes compared to the traditional IMS fixation in displaced avulsion FMBFs...

BACKGROUND: There is little information regarding anatomic structures at risk during closed percutaneous treatment of fifth metacarpal neck fractures. This study evaluates a variety of common percutaneous techniques with the hypothesis that each approach presents unique risks to tendons and neurovascular structures. METHODS: Seven cadaveric hands were used for this study. The senior author, a board-certified hand surgeon with more than 20 years of experience, used a mini-C arm to pass 1...

BACKGROUND: Professional athletes are predisposed to fractures of the foot due to large stresses placed on the lower extremity. These players are concerned with efficiently returning to play at a high level. Return-to-play rates after operative treatment have been previously reported, yet performance outcomes after such treatment are generally unknown in this population. HYPOTHESIS: Overall, professional athletes sustaining a foot fracture would return to play at high rates with little impact on post-operative performance or league participation...

BACKGROUND: Packing after closed reduction of nasal fracture causes uncomfortable nasal obstruction in patients. We packed the superior meatus with synthetic polyurethane foam (SPF) to support the nasal bone, and packed the middle nasal meatus with a nasal airway splint (NAS) and SPF. The aim of this article is prospectively to compare the subjective patient discomfort of SPF (Nasopore Forte plus) packing alone and SPF with NAS. METHODS: We compared the prospectively subjective patient discomfort of SPF packing alone (group A) and SPF with NAS (group B) via visual analog scale (VAS; 0, no symptom; 100, most severe symptom)...
