BACKGROUND: Flexible elastic nails, submuscular plating, and rigid locked intramedullary nails are common methods of fixation for pediatric femur fractures (PFF) in which the fracture table is used to aid reduction. Little is known about complications associated with fracture table application in PFF. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and risk factors associated with adverse outcomes related to fracture table application for the treatment of PFF. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all children (younger than 18 y) treated for a femur fracture with the use of the fracture table between 2004 and 2015 at a single tertiary pediatric hospital was performed...

In 2011, an Institute of Medicine report on health information technology (IT) and patient safety highlighted that building health-IT for safer use is a shared responsibility between key stakeholders including: "vendors, care providers, healthcare organizations, health-IT departments, and public and private agencies". Use of electronic health records (EHRs) involves all these stakeholders, but they often have conflicting priorities and requirements. Since 2011, the concept of shared responsibility has gained little traction and EHR developers and users continue to attribute the substantial, long list of problems to each other...

Some babies are born with a rare condition known as esophageal atresia, in which part of the connection between the throat and stomach is missing or nonfunctional. While this was once untreatable and fatal, in recent years surgeons have developed a method using traction to stretch the tissues out on each end until, over time, they are long enough to be sewn together and so substitute for the missing portion of the esophagus. The procedure has allowed many infant patients to go home with a full, normal life ahead of them...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The use of physical therapy has been recommended in the treatment of low back pain based on primarily mechanical and neurophysiological effects. Recent studies have measured the physiological effects of physical therapy interventions, including manual therapy and traction, on the intervertebral discs (IVD), and these findings may have implications for the long-term management or even prevention of low back pain. PURPOSE: The objective of this systematic review is to investigate the literature regarding possible physiological effects of physical therapy interventions on the intervertebral disc (IVD)...

PURPOSE: Maxillofacial deformities are always psychologically and physically distressing to the patients and is also challenging to the treating surgeons. The term Micrognathia means a "small jaw". True micrognathia, where the maxilla or the mandibular skeleton does not grow to the full size can be congenital or acquired. Distraction osteogenesis also called as callus distraction or callostasis or osteodistraction or distraction histogenesis is a biological process of regenerating newly formed bone and adjacent soft tissue by a gradual and controlled traction of surgically separated bone segments...

Macular hole-associated retinal detachment in high myopia is described as a final stage in progression of myopic traction maculopathy (MTM).(1â€"3) Shimada et al(4) described the progressive stages of MTM from macular retinoschisis to serous retinal detachment in high myopia. Stage 4 MTM is characterised as disappearance of retinoschisis with progression to retinal detachment due to macular hole formation. It is hypothesised that vitreoschisis and abnormal vitreo-retinal interface create the premacular tangential traction...

Atlanto-axial (C1- C2) joint is accountable for up to two third of total axial craniocervical rotation. Its major role in pivotal rotation of cervical spine makes it more vulnerable to a certain type of injury known as atlanto-axial rotatory subluxation (AARS). Management of AARS is based on the Fielding classification which includes closed reduction and immobilization and cervical fusion in unstable cases. There are several cervical traction devices including the Gardner-Wells tongs and halter traction device...

Obstetrical brachial plexus palsy is a disorder of the peripheral nervous system and occurs in as many as 0.4% of infants born. It is associated with shoulder dystocia, use of mechanical extraction, and macrosomia; it occurs more frequently in infants born by vaginal delivery. The unilateral injury to the brachial plexus complex occurs during the delivery phase as lateral traction is applied to the head to permit shoulder clearance. The infant typically presents in the delivery room with decreased active movements of the affected arm and asymmetrical primitive reflex responses...

Airway smooth muscle (ASM) cells are phenotypically regulated to exist in either a proliferative or a contractile state. However the influence of other airway structural cell types on ASM cell phenotype is largely unknown. Although epithelial cells are known to drive ASM proliferation, their effects on the contractile phenotype are uncertain. In the current study we tested the hypothesis that epithelial cells reduce the contractile phenotype of ASM cells. To do so, we measured force production by traction microscopy, gene and protein expression as well as calcium release by Fura-2 ratiometric imaging...

Since 2010 the portfolio of PET-based imaging has been expanded by industry with the introduction of combined whole-body PET/MRI systems with the intent of merging PET-based molecular imaging with the strengths of MRI. PET/MRI has created a lot of hype in the scientific community but comparatively little traction in the clinic. The first years of whole-body PET/MRI were used to address inherent technical challenges, however, it is now time to make use of the full potential of this integrated imaging modality...

The hippocampus has long been known to be a critical component of the memory system involved in the formation and use of long-term declarative memory. However, recent findings have revealed that the reach of hippocampal contributions extends to a variety of domains and tasks that require the flexible use of cognitive and social behavior, including domains traditionally linked to prefrontal cortex (PFC), such as decision-making. In addition, the prefrontal cortex (PFC) has gained traction as a necessary part of the memory system...

The study of musical ability has gained considerable traction across disciplines in recent years. In comparison, less effort has been invested in the development of sound measures of musical ability. To redress this gap, we conducted four studies to empirically validate two brief measures derived from the Profile of Music Perception Skills (PROMS)-an exceptionally inclusive battery of musical abilities that takes about 1 h to complete. In the Short-PROMS, test duration was reduced to less than half an hour by substantially reducing the number of trials per subtest...

Nonmuscle myosin II (NMII) is uniquely responsible for cell contractility and thus defines multiple aspects of cell behavior. To generate contraction, NMII molecules polymerize into bipolar minifilaments. Different NMII paralogs are often coexpressed in cells and can copolymerize, suggesting that they may cooperate to facilitate cell motility. However, whether such cooperation exists and how it may work remain unknown. We show that copolymerization of NMIIA and NMIIB followed by their differential turnover leads to self-sorting of NMIIA and NMIIB along the front-rear axis, thus producing a polarized actin-NMII cytoskeleton...
