The establishment and implementation of the combined specialisation of orthopaedic and trauma surgery in daily routine was and still is a huge challenge for all stakeholders. In recent years, major efforts have been made by the professional associations, the specialty societies and all parties involved in the implementation of this project. Basically, there is no general recipe for the implementation of such a concept. For each centre or clinic, the local structural, professional and historical circumstances must be meticulously taken into account when considering implementation of this concept...

The xuetou xingzou xuedao ge is the representative for traumatic injury treated with acupoints of shaolin traumatology. It is mentioned that blood circulates to different acupoints in the governor vessel and the conception vessel at different time divisions a day. In the paper, the relationship is discussed between the blood circulation and the qi flowing cycle in the governor vessel, the conception vessel and the 12 regular meridians. It is found that the time for blood passing by at acupoint is closely related to the time division in meridian qi flowing...

We aimed to explore the long-term outcomes of back and neck pain and functionality in adult females with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), who had been treated with a Milwaukee brace, in a follow-up study a minimum of 23 years after the completion of the treatment, using radiological, clinical and socio-demographical data. Thirty AIS patients (scoliosis group-SG), were included in the study based on an extensive search of Pediatric Orthopedics and Traumatology Clinic charts. All treatments were successfully completed between 1974 and 1990...

INTRODUCTION: We used a matched cohort of 231 cases of revision of primary dual-mobility cups (DMC) total hip arthroplasty (THA) and 231 cases of fixed cups (FC) THA, to determine whether (i) revision for infection was more frequent when using DMC-THA than FC-THA; (ii) Causes for revision were significantly different. METHODS: The French Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology carried out a prospective multicentre study from 2010 to 2011. The inclusion criterion was an exhaustive collection of 1st revision THA (at least 1 component revised, re-revision excluded)...

Ce Yang, Jie Gao, Juan Du, Xuetao Yang, Jianxin Jiang
During the occurrence and development of injury (trauma, hemorrhagic shock, ischemia and hypoxia), the neuroendocrine and immune system act as a prominent navigation leader and possess an inter-system crosstalk between the reciprocal information dissemination. The fundamental reason that neuroendocrinology and immunology could mix each other and permeate toward the field of traumatology is owing to their same biological languages or chemical information molecules (hormones, neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, cytokines and their corresponding receptors) shared by the neuroendocrine and immune systems...

OBJECTIVE: In the developmental traumatology model, the biological construct of sex is considered a moderator that may negatively influence child maltreatment sequelae including those pertaining to neurocognitive function. METHOD: This study examined sex-differences in neurocognitive function and behavior problems in maltreated boys (n = 42), maltreated girls (n = 56) versus nonmaltreated boys (n = 45) and girls (n = 59). Maltreated boys were hypothesized to have poorer neurocognitive functioning than maltreated girls, and nonmaltreated boys and girls, in all neurocognitive domains, particularly pertaining to executive function and attention...

Reading the literature of recent years could give one the impression that many treatments fall short when they are submitted to high-quality scrutiny. This perspective discusses sensible and senseless care in orthopaedics and traumatology, using concepts such as evidence-based medicine, managing expectations and shared decision-making.

BACKGROUND: The formal appearance of health care professionals may influence their trustworthiness. AIM: To determine the effect of the orthopedic surgeon's attire on patients' perceptions of credibility and reliability of professionals. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In a cross-sectional design, 351 patients (mean age 43 ± 17 years, 62% males) from the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology of a Chilean regional hospital in southem of Chile were chosen to complete a questionnaire of attire preferences, in which five photographs with male and female orthopedic surgeons appeared (executive, formal attire, informal attire, scrubs and casual clothing)...

BACKGROUND: Within traumatology a common indication for acute surgery of fractured clavicles is bone shortening over 2 cm. This indication is among but a few indications; which are recommended to be treated operatively within the very first weeks after a fracture. Theoretically clavicle fractures could become less shortened over time due to decreasing muscle pull. If this reduced shortening does indeed happen, some patients with initial bone shortening over 2 cm could perhaps be treated conservatively? However, it is unknown what happens to the length of the clavicle within the first weeks after a fracture...

Traumatic injuries to the primary dentition present special problems and the management is often different as compared with the permanent dentition. The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) has developed a consensus statement after a review of the dental literature and group discussions. Experienced researchers and clinicians from various specialities were included in the task group. In cases where the data did not appear conclusive, recommendations were based on the consensus opinion or majority decision of the task group...

Traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) of permanent teeth occur frequently in children and young adults. Crown fractures and luxations are the most commonly occurring of all dental injuries. Proper diagnosis, treatment planning and followup are important for improving a favorable outcome. Guidelines should assist dentists and patients in decision making and for providing the best care effectively and efficiently.

INTRODUCTION: A pulmonary contusion is an entity defined as alveolar haemorrhage and pulmonary parenchymal destruction after blunt chest trauma. According to the literature, most pulmonary contusions can only be seen on a chest CT. The aim of this study was to evaluate the patients with pulmonary contusions, as well as their management, considering diagnostic and therapeutic options related to their outcomes, since we assumed, based on everyday clinical practice, that an 'overdiagnosing' and 'overtreatment' attitude towards this injury could be present...

REVIEW
D M Rouleau
The design of clinical studies in orthopedic traumatology is challenging in several respects. In this era of evidence-based medicine, the pressure is high to choose our treatments solely based on randomized controlled studies. This type of study, when well-constructed, makes it possible to discern the best treatment for a specific fracture in a given group of patients and in connection with a specific outcome. Randomized controlled trials require a lot of resources and are not designed to answer all research questions...

REVIEW
L Nové-Josserand, P Clavert
Glenoid exposure is agreed to be a difficult step, but is also a key step in total shoulder arthroplasty, both anatomic and reverse. It conditions unhindered use of the ancillary instrumentation and thus correct glenoid component positioning. The main stages comprise arthrotomy, by opening the rotator cuff, humeral head cut, and inferior glenohumeral release, enabling shifting of the humerus and good exposure of the glenoid cavity. The two main approaches are deltopectoral and anterosuperior transdeltoid. Using the deltopectoral approach, arthrotomy is performed through the subscapularis muscle, by various techniques...

Through a retrospective study of 70 cases of benign soft tissue tumors in the orthopedic traumatology department of the military hospital of Tunis over a 12-year period from January 2005 to December 2016, we have compared our findings to those of the literature in an attempt to identify epidemiological notions relevant to daily medical practice as epidemiological data on benign tumors of the soft parts of the hand remain few and sometimes discordant. The authors report a series of 70 active, young adults, mostly female, with a swelling at the level of the hand as the most common reason for consultation...

Orthopedic implants have become essential components of modern medicine. The risk of infection of total hip arthroplasty (THA) is 1.5%-2%. Are the C-reactive protein (CRP), the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and procalcitonin (PCT) good markers for THA infection screenings? From February 2009 to December 2012 at our Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, 1248 patients were treated with THA. No prosthesis was cemented. All patients received antibiotic prophylaxis. All patients were discharged approximately 7...
