James F Griffith
Examination of the brachial plexus with ultrasound is efficient because it allows many parts of the brachial plexus as well as the surrounding soft tissues to be assessed with high spatial resolution. The key to performing good ultrasound of the brachial plexus is being familiar with the anatomy and the common variants. That makes it possible to concentrate solely on the ultrasound appearances free of simultaneously wondering about the anatomy. Ultrasound of the brachial plexus is particularly good for assessing nerve sheath tumor, perineural fibrosis, metastases, some inflammatory neuropathies, neuralgic amyotrophy, and posttraumatic sequalae...

James Dana Kondrup, Alaina M Qayyum
Traditionally, surgical procedures within the realm of both general and gynecological surgery employ the use of staples and interrupted sutures that run continuously with knot tying or subcuticular sutures to ensure closure of large wound incisions, subcuticular incisions, and fascial repair. However, these methods may not always be cosmetically favorable and, thus, result in an unpleasant outcome for the patient, adding to their surgery-related stress. It is, therefore, imperative that surgeons and gynecologists are aware of alternative methods of wound closure that are not only cosmetically favorable, but also ensure rapid wound recovery and infection control...

Purpose: Rectal contact X-ray brachytherapy (Papillon radiotherapy) has recently received approval from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. In particular, it is suitable for elderly patients who are high-risk for a major operation, but it may also be undertaken for patients who wish to avoid a stoma. It is imperative to be able to identify clinical response or tumor regrowth on surveillance magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and sigmoidoscopy. This article aims to help clinicians to interpret MRIs and endoscopic appearances following Papillon radiotherapy...

Ultrasound (US) imaging is a well-established diagnostic technique to image soft tissues in real time, while photoacoustic (PA) is an emerging imaging technique employed to collect molecular information. Integration of PA and US imaging provides complementary information enhancing diagnostic accuracy without employing ionizing radiations. The development of contrast agents able to combine PA and US features is pivotal to improve the significance of PAUS imaging and for PAUS-guided treatment of neoplasms. Here, we demonstrate in relevant ex-vivo models that disassembling passion fruit-like nano-architectures (pfNAs) can be employed in PAUS imaging...

The standard of care for chronic deep peri-prosthetic hip infection is a two-stage exchange with placement of a temporary antibiotic cement spacer and treatment with intravenous antibiotics. Several commercially available cement spacer options exist. We report on a novel antibiotic spacer that may be an efficient, cost-effective alternative. Medical records of all patients treated for deep peri-prosthetic hip infection after total hip arthroplasty between 2004 and 2012 were reviewed. Each antibiotic spacer was constructed from a 12- to 16-hole recon plate bent to provide adequate soft tissue tension and a cement ball that matched the acetabulum...

Distraction osteogenesis a surgical procedure conducted to improve craniofacial deformities. Compared with conventional operations, this technique has advantages such as the ability to lengthen the soft tissue and hard tissue. Therefore, this method is used to treat severe craniofacial abnormalities.The major disadvantage of distraction osteogenesis is the long treatment period. If the consolidation period is not sufficiently long after the distraction period, complications such as discontinuity or contraction of newly formed bone may occur...

INTRODUCTION: We developed a novel technique of creating a rounded rectangular femoral bone tunnel for anatomical, single-bundle, autologous hamstring tendon anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Although this tunnel has many advantages, its non-circular shape has raised concerns regarding excessive graft shift within the bone tunnel. This study aimed to compare the graft shift between round and rounded rectangular tunnels using a graft diameter tester for simulating the femoral bone tunnel...

Instead of extensive dissection of soft tissue around the fracture site, percutaneous techniques have unique advantages in managing displaced fragments, including preservation of soft tissues, less blood loss, lower risk of complications, and earlier functional rehabilitation. However, there are few systematic reviews on the effects of percutaneous reduction and internal fixation (PRIF) for tibial plateau fractures. A systematic search of Cochrane, EMBASE, and MEDLINE databases was performed for all publicly available data in March 2017 regarding the use of PRIF in treating monocondylar tibial plateau fractures...

Locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) is characterized by poor prognosis and low response durability with standard-of-care chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy treatment. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which has a shorter treatment course than conventionally fractionated radiotherapy and allows for better integration with systemic therapy, may confer a survival benefit but is limited by gastrointestinal toxicity. Stereotactic MRI-guided adaptive radiation therapy (SMART) has recently gained attention for its potential to increase treatment precision and thus minimize this toxicity through continuous real-time soft-tissue imaging during radiotherapy...

Radiofrequency cervical rhizotomy has been shown to be effective for the relief of chronic neck pain, whether it be due to soft tissue injury, cervical spondylosis, or post-cervical spine surgery. The target and technique have traditionally been taught using an oblique approach to the anterior lateral capsule of the cervical facet joint. The goal is to position the electrode at the proximal location of the recurrent branch after it leaves the exiting nerve root and loops back to the cervical facet joint. The standard oblique approach to the recurrent nerve requires the testing of both motor and sensory components to verify the correct position and ensure safety so as to not damage the slightly more anterior nerve root...

Zygomatic implant site preparation could be considered a challenging procedure because of the use of a very long twist drill that could sometimes be difficult to control due to the need for drilling the malar bone on an oblique surface. Ultrasound was recently suggested to achieve better control, but the specific long tips required are not readily available, and the elongated tip also tends to reduce the efficacy. This technical note describes a proposal of a novel computer-aided technique to simplify the procedure of zygomatic implant site preparation...

INTRODUCTION: The gastrocnemius muscular flap has already proven its efficiency for soft tissue coverage in cases of knee joint exposure. However, it may be too small to cover large defects and has not the same aesthetic and mechanical properties as normal skin. Perforator fasciocutaneous flaps have recently been described in knee joint coverage with good results as they replace skin by skin, but they can be hard to harvest. Gastrocnemius flaps can be easily harvested with a planned skin paddle designed over the chosen muscle...

Superior capsular reconstruction has received increased attention as a surgical technique to address massive 'irreparable' rotator cuff tears; however, the functional limitations and surgical techniques associated with this repair have yet to be sufficiently explored. The goal of this study was to utilize a multidisciplinary approach to characterize the biomechanics of this repair by: 1) identifying activities of daily living that may overburden graft, and 2) optimizing surgical techniques used during implantation...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The choice of reconstructive technique for a segmental mandibular defect in elderly patients is controversial. The aim of this study was to establish an algorithm for selecting a method of mandibular reconstruction in elderly patients. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 121 patients aged ≥65 years who underwent immediate microvascular mandibular reconstruction after oncologic resection. Patients were divided into three groups based on method of reconstruction: vascularized bone graft (n = 49), mandibular reconstruction plate and soft tissue flap (n = 22), and soft-tissue flap (n = 50)...
