Giant cell tumor (GCT) is a benign, locally aggressive tumor that rarely occurs in the spine. They usually occur in patients between 20 and 40 years of age; some patients with GCT present in hospital with pregnancy. The management of these patients can be challenging. The current study reports a case of GCT located in the sixth thoracic vertebra of a 31-year-old female at 34 weeks of gestation. An osteolytic lesion, 3.5 cm × 3.5 cm in diameter, was identified on CT. An MRI test of the lesion revealed a soft tissue mass involving the T 6-7 vertebrae, extending to the right pedicle of the T 6 vertebra and causing significant spinal cord compression...

INTRODUCTION: Unilateral condylar hyperplasia (UCH) is characterized by an excessive growth of a mandibular condyle, resulting in facial, and occlusal deformities. Scintigraphic hyperactivity usually triggers the need of condylectomy. Delaire has presented a protocol for the treatment of active or non-active UCH using systematically a proportional condylectomy, which could solve both aetiology and adaptive deformities. The aim of this study was to evaluate this protocol by clinical and radiographical analysis...

BACKGROUND: Numerous techniques have been employed to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Self-myofascial release (SMFR) is a relatively new technique of soft tissue mobilization. The simplicity and portability of the SMFR tools allow it to be easily implemented in any type of fitness or rehabilitation program. It is an active method and can be used by anyone at home or at the workplace. OBJECTIVE: To review the current methods of SMFR, their mechanisms, and efficacy in treating myofascial pain, improving muscle flexibility and strength...

Septic arthritis of the shoulder can destroy the glenohumeral joint resulting in significant pain, instability and poor function. Surgical treatment is notoriously difficult with significant risk of complications. Shoulder arthrodesis has been performed using both internal and external fixation but has high complication rates in the presence of infection. We present our experience of managing a patient with significant pain and loss of function as a result of septic arthritis of the shoulder following infected proximal humeral fracture fixation with associated proximal humeral osteomyelitis...

OBJECTIVE: To study the rehabilitation effect of exercise with soft tissue manipulation therapy for patients with lumbar muscle strain. METHODS: Patients with lumbar muscle strain who met the inclusion criteria for study were randomly divided into control and experimental groups. Conventional therapy (i.e., triple therapy of needle, moxibustion, and cupping jar) was implemented for control group patients with lumbar muscle strain, whereas the combination therapy of exercise with manipulation was implemented for experimental group patients with lumbar muscle strain...

PURPOSE AND HYPOTHESIS: Both spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis come in second place in the causes of pain among athletes. Treatment options include both conservative management and different operative methods. Athletes and adolescents are groups where the priority is to protect tissues from perioperative damage. OBJECTIVE: We present our modification of the Buck's, direct pars repair method, which we believe offers maximum protection of tissues. We used the modified surgical method in young, competitive athletes, in whom non-surgical treatment was not effective...

The early fracture treatment in patients with multiple injuries should be focused on damage control. The fracture type and its location, local soft tissue condition as well as the patient's physiological condition shall determine the time and type of fracture treatment. Prevention of local and systemic complications must be immediately considered and included in the treatment planning. The use of external fixator (ExFix), which will be replaced by IM-implants in most cases at a later stage, provides adequate temporary fracture stabilization with less collateral damage...

Ectodermal dysplasia syndrome is a hereditary disease of ectodermal origin. Appearances of nail dystrophy, alopecia or hypotrichosis, saddle nose deformity, and palmoplantar hyperkeratosis are usually associated with a lack of sweat glands as well as partial or complete absence of teeth. These manifestations are usually corrected only with oral rehabilitation by mounting dentures. In this study, plastic rehabilitation was developed to correct the special features of patients with ectodermal dysplasia. Four men and 1 woman with ectodermal dysplasia syndrome were treated...

INTRODUCTION: Extremely atrophic maxillae can be considered the most important indication for three-dimensional maxillary reconstruction. Different bone-augmentation techniques have been suggested to accomplish this. This article illustrates a minimally invasive approach to rehabilitation of the extremely atrophic maxilla. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 63-year-old male patient was referred for restoration of his totally edentulous maxilla with a fixed full-arch implant-prosthetic rehabilitation...

This report presents a case where vibration training to the arm alone, as opposed to whole-body vibration, was used to aid rehabilitation to a serious traumatic injury. An improvement in soft tissue extensibility to a major traumatic wound to the wrist and forearm has been noted in a therapy plan including vibration under stretch. After 12 weeks of intensive therapy, a considerable improvement was seen in both the active extension of the wrist and the composite extension of all fingers. This may highlight the use of vibration, as an adjunct to therapy, to specific areas of the human body for improving outcome from traumatic injury...

Osseointegrated, percutaneous implants as the force bearer for exoprosthetics after limb amputation have been used in individual cases for clinical rehabilitation of amputees during the past years. Most experience in this field in Germany has been accumulated at the Sana Klinik in Lübeck with the so-called endo-exo prosthesis (EEP) system. The two-step implantation procedure can now be considered as reliable. Following a well-documented learning curve initial soft tissue problems concerning the cutaneous stoma can now be regarded as exceptions...

The management of articular fractures is always a matter of concern. Each articular fracture is different from the other, whatever the classification system used and the surgical or non-surgical indications employed by the surgeon. The main goals remain anatomical reduction, stable fixation, loose body removal and minimal invasiveness.Open procedures are a compromise. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to meet every treatment goal perfectly, since associated lesions can pass unnoticed or delay treatment, and even in a 'best-case' scenario there can be complications in the long term...

We report a case of traumatic anterior dislocation of the left knee in association with disruption of the soft tissues including knee ligaments, popliteal artery and common peroneal nerve, resulting in lower limb acute ischemia. All components of this complex trauma were recognised and treated promptly with rehabilitation commencing early. The present case is important in two aspects: firstly it reports a very rare occurrence of simultaneous anterior dislocation of the knee associated with vascular insult and common peroneal nerve injury, that was rarely reported in the current literature; secondly it highlights that with timely intervention and a team approach excellent results could be achieved...

Patellar instability resulting from subluxation or dislocation is a painful and commonly recurring condition. Retinacular restraints control patellar tracking, limiting the movement of the patella in the trochlear groove. The medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) is considered the main soft tissue stabilizer against lateral displacement. Few studies of patellar instability discuss rehabilitation after MPFL reconstruction. In this review, we discuss the phases of rehabilitation after MPFL reconstruction, typical interventions by rehabilitation specialists, and patient-specific guidelines for return to prior level of function...

BACKGROUND: A three-dimensionally favourable mandibular bone crest is desirable to be able to successfully implant placement to meet the aesthetic and functional criteria in the implant-prosthetic rehabilitation. Several surgical procedures have been advocated for bone augmentation of the atrophic mandible, and the sandwich osteotomy is one of these techniques. The aim of the present case report was to assess the suitability of segmental mandibular sandwich osteotomy combined with a tunnel technique of soft tissue...

Quantifying the mechanical environment at the knee is crucial for developing successful rehabilitation and surgical protocols. Computational models have been developed to complement in vitro studies, but are typically created to represent healthy conditions, and may not be useful in modeling pathology and repair. Thus, the objective of this study was to create finite element (FE) models of the natural knee, including specimen-specific tibiofemoral (TF) and patellofemoral (PF) soft tissue structures, and to evaluate joint mechanics in intact and ACL-deficient conditions...

There is an emerging need for soft tissue replacements in the field of reconstructive surgery for the treatment of congenital deformities, posttraumatic repair, and cancer rehabilitation. Previous studies have shown that the bioactive adipose tissue extract can induce adipogenesis without additional stem cells or growth factors. In this study, we innovatively investigated whether exosome-like vesicles derived from adipose tissue (ELV-AT) could direct stem cell differentiation and trigger adipose tissue regeneration...

As the number of survivors of extremity soft tissue sarcoma increases, so does the need to understand the experience of survivors and develop measures, systems and services that support rehabilitation into normal life roles. Survivorship includes considerations of the physical, psychological and social domains, of which the physical sequelae of treatment are the best characterised in the literature. The survivorship experience may include disability, pain, lymphoedema, psychological problems, as well as difficulty with employment, relationships and lower quality of life...

INTRODUCTION: Many surgical techniques have been described for the treatment of TMJ ankylosis, but no strategy has been uniformly agreed upon underscoring the difficulty of the problem. Despite new guidelines and updated methods, treating patients with TMJ Ankylosis remains a challenge as the incidence of recurrence after treatment is soaring. This study exemplifies our experience in using an unsullied method to treat TMJ Ankylosis to restore the structure of TMJ in conjunction with convalescing secondary maxillofacial deformity...
