The current study investigated the incidence of complications after surgery for distal radial fractures. This multicenter retrospective study was conducted at 11 institutions. A total of 824 patients who had distal radius fractures that were treated surgically between January 2010 and August 2012 were identified. The study patients were older than 18 years and were observed for at least 12 weeks after surgery for distal radius fractures with a volar locking plate. Sex, age, fracture type according to AO classification, implants, wrist range of motion, grip strength, fracture consolidation rate, and complications were studied...

Soft palate palsy with or without pharyngeal or laryngeal paralysis or facial palsy has been described in the literature fewer than 40 times. Of these cases, isolated unilateral soft palate palsy (occurring without any other neurologic manifestation) has been rare. Most cases of isolated soft palate palsy were termed idiopathic in the past. In a few cases, a concomitant viral infection such as varicella zoster, herpes simplex, measles, and coxsackie A9 was diagnosed. We describe a case of isolated soft palate palsy, following a pharyngotonsillitis caused by Epstein-Barr virus...

OBJECTIVES: Posterior interosseous nerve palsy is a rare syndrome frequently unrecognized, while the clinical presentation is characteristic: finger extension paresis associated with wrist extension in radially deviated position. Here, we assessed our results of surgical treatment. METHODS: A 20-year retrospective study was carried out in our unit. Analysis of causes and an assessment of postoperative functional outcome were performed. Our study was compared with literature data...

BACKGROUND: Gelsolin is a highly conserved intracellular actin-binding protein with an extracellular isoform, plasma gelsolin, for which there is not yet a clearly defined function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, we determined gelsolin concentrations in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) obtained from 25 subjects using immunoblotting and a functional assay that quantifies gelsolin's ability to accelerate actin polymerization. RESULTS: The gelsolin concentration in CSF, determined by quantitative immunoblotting was 1...

OBJECTIVE: Patients who undergo skull base resection after prior surgery or radiation may be at high risk for complications when local flaps alone are used for reconstruction. To determine whether the complication rate could be reduced, fasciocutaneous free tissue transfer was used to reinforce the dural closure in patients who had prior skull base surgery or radiation. METHODS: This study is a case series of 20 patients (14 males, 6 females, aged 8-79 years of age with a mean of 47...

We reported a case of 50-year-old male who was found to have SSS after induction of general anesthesia though his preoperative cardiac function studies including Holter ECG were normal. He was scheduled to have anterior transposition of ulnar nerve for idiopathic ulnar nerve palsy. He had suffered from lung edema during the same operation about 10 months previously at another hospital and the cause had been unknown. We monitored direct radial artery pressure continuously before induction of general anesthesia...

Report on a newborn with left-sided radial paresis due to a solitary angioleiomyoma in the lateral distal third of the upper arm. The literature does not disclose that this rare benign tumor can produce radial palsy. A palpable soft-part tumor in the new born suggests malignancy. The tumor including the atrophic radial nerve was radically excised. When histology proved it to be benign, a nerve graft with the sural nerve was carried out. After 6 months of electrical and physiotherapeutic treatment partial radial function had returned...
