#1
Rachel Shakked, Steven Sheskier
Lateral ankle instability is a common entity that can result in degenerative arthritis if left untreated. Acute ligament injuries should primarily be treated nonoperatively with a course of physical therapy and functional bracing. Chronic ankle instability is defined as mechanical or functional and can be diagnosed using a combination of history, physical examination, stress radiographs, and magnetic resonance imaging. After failure of nonoperative treatment, surgical treatment with anatomic ligament repair and inferior extensor retinaculum augmentation has the best clinical outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we sought to review the clinical and histopathological features and the chemotherapy regimens in osteogenic sarcoma in patients over 40 years of age, and we aimed at identifying the possible prognostic factors in this particular group of patients. METHODS: We reviewed 287 patients with osteosarcoma treated between the year 1986 and 2010. Patients from this group who met the following criteria were considered eligible for our study; presence of primary OS, had typical histological and radiographic features of OS, no prior history of cancer or any treatment elsewhere and no prior history of preexisting bone abnormalities...

BACKGROUND: The concept of free interposition arthroplasty proved successful for small joints of the hand, wrist, and foot, particularly after the use of implants coated with pyrocarbon, which enhanced their tribologic and elastic properties. The present study reports preliminary outcomes of a pyrocarbon-coated interposition shoulder arthroplasty (PISA) implant. METHODS: This was a prospective study of 67 consecutive patients who underwent shoulder PISA at 9 centers...

The Virtual Dental Home is a concept of the Pacific Center for Special Care of the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. It is designed to improve access to dental care for underserved populations, specifically children and institutionalized adults. This article describes the development and implementation of the Virtual Dental Home, subsequently critiquing the concept. The criteria for a dental home are not met by the program. It is the equivalent of a traditional public oral health prevention and screening program, with the additional dimension of allowing dental hygienists and assistants to place interim glass ionomer restorations in dental cavities...

The upper and lower thoracolumbar spine have been associated with different biomechanical outcomes. This concept, as it applies to osteoporotic fracture risk, has not been well documented. This was a case-control study of 120 patients seen in an osteoporosis clinic. Vertebral fractures were identified from lateral radiographs using Genant's semi-quantitative assessment method. An association between bone mineral density (BMD) T-scores and vertebral fracture location was assessed. In an additional analysis, the association between a history of any traumatic injury and possible predictor variables was also explored...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is an uncommon form of stroke that, when severe, can be a therapeutic challenge. Endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (EMT) techniques have significantly evolved over the past decade, but data regarding the efficacy and safety of EMT for CVST are poorly defined. OBJECTIVE: To summarize the large number of case series on this relatively rare condition and establish trends in the outcomes of EMT for CVST. METHODS: A literature review was performed using PubMed and Medline to identify reports of three or more patients with CVST treated with EMT...

Pseudoaneurysms may cause recurrent hematuria after blunt renal trauma. We report on an 18-year old patient with radiographic manifestation of pseudoaneurysm 41 days after blunt renal trauma. Initial and follow-up imaging for recurrent hematuria including angiography was without signs of pseudoaneurysm or active bleeding. This case illustrates that recurrent gross hematuria as a typical symptom of pseudoaneurysm may be present initially in the absence of radiographic signs. Repeat angiography should be taken into consideration if recurrent bleeding persists...

REVIEW
Shine Raju, Subha Ghosh, Atul C Mehta
Computed tomography (CT) of the chest is one of the most important imaging modalities available to a pulmonologist. The advent of high-resolution CT of the chest has led to its increasing use. While chest radiographs are still useful as an initial test, their utility is limited in the diagnosis of lung diseases which depend on higher resolution images such as interstitial lung diseases and pulmonary vascular diseases. Several metaphorical chest CT signs have been described linking abnormal imaging patterns to lung diseases...

The increased utilisation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in radiation therapy (RT) has led to the implementation of MRI simulators for RT treatment planning and influenced the development of MRI-guided treatment systems. There is extensive literature on the advantages of MRI for tumour volume and organ-at-risk delineation compared to computed tomography. MRI provides both anatomical and functional information for RT treatment planning (RTP) as well as quantitative information to assess tumour response for adaptive treatment...

PURPOSE: The Forgotten Joint Score (FJS) is a novel measurement for patients' awareness of their knee in daily life. By identifying factors that could explain pre-operative FJS levels, the clinician could better prioritize and single out patients who would benefit most from TKA. The aim of this study was to identify possible factors that may explain the variance of pre-operative FJS levels and evaluate the relationship between pre-operative FJS and pre-operative Oxford Knee Score (OKS)...
