Objective: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the only treatment known to slow or halt inflammatory demyelination among boys with the cerebral form of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (cALD), a devastating childhood condition affecting the central nervous system. HSCT can lead to a range of adverse outcomes including fatality. Previous studies have examined the potential predictors of post-HSCT survival and neurologic functioning. However, little is known about patients' daily-life adaptive functional outcomes (i...

BACKGROUND: Reports of early glenoid wear after humeral resurfacing hemiarthroplasty have prompted the use, in combination with this procedure, of newly developed glenoid implants. This combination can increase global humeral offset. The objectives of this study were to assess changes in overall lateral offset and their potential short-term clinical consequences after combined humeral resurfacing and glenoid replacement. HYPOTHESIS: Combined humeral resurfacing and glenoid replacement induces a large increase in overall lateral offset, resulting in short-term clinical consequences...

INTRODUCTION: Using locking plates in opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) via a medial opening theoretically allows early weight-bearing without need for bone or bone-substitute grafting. It incurs a risk of non-consolidation in case of large correction (> 10°), although rates and risk factors of non-union are not known. The present retrospective study compared OWHTO with correction <10° versus >10°, with a view to determining: 1) complications rates (non-union) according to degree of correction, and 2) risk factors for such complications...

PURPOSE: Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee affects the medial femoral condyle in patients above 55 years of age. Many reports and studies are available from western countries. But there is a gross paucity of literature on spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SPONK) in the Indian subcontinent, either it is under-reported or detected at a later stage. The aim of our study was to detect SPONK in Indian population and describe its characteristics, treatment, and outcome. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A prospective study was conducted over a period of three years...

According to the American Association of Endodontists, "a 'true' vertical root fracture is defined as a complete or incomplete fracture initiated from the root at any level, usually directed buccolingually." Vertical root fracture (VRF) usually starts from an internal dentinal crack and develops over time, due to masticatory forces and occlusal loads. When they occur in teeth, those types of fractures can present difficulties in diagnosis, and there are however many clinic and radiographical signs which can guide clinicians to the existence of the fracture...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to analyze the occurrence of PE after intra-operative O-arm navigation-assisted surgery and determine whether the post-operative PE incidence could be decreased by using O-arm navigation as compared to conventional free-hand technique. METHODS: A cohort of 27 patients with spinal deformity who were operated upon with an O-arm navigated system (group A) between 2013 and 2016 were enrolled in the study. A total of 27 curve-matched patients treated by conventional free-hand technique were included as the control group (group B)...

BACKGROUND AND HYPOTHESIS: Radial head arthroplasty (RHA) is a reliable procedure to manage complex injuries of the elbow, but complications due to inadequate sizing have been observed. Radiocapitellar morphometry has been studied widely, but RHA preoperative planning is not yet well defined. We hypothesized that specific morphologic parameters of the radiocapitellar joint measured with simple clinical software for radiographic analysis could be useful tools for clinical practice to predict RHA size preoperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Coronal plane distal humeral injuries are relatively rare. Numerous classification systems have been proposed as the complexity of these fractures has been realized. We in the present series of ten patients describe the surgical technique of Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Coronal plane fractures of the distal humerus with headless compression screws performed using the anterolateral approach. MATERIAL AND METHOD: It was a retrospective study, the data collected from March 2010 to 2015 was analysed and the final outcome was assessed using the DASH score...

The Sauvé-Kapandji procedure is a reliable option for patients with various disorders of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). However, postoperative pain over the proximal ulnar stump frequently develops during forearm rotation or when lifting heavy objects, although many clinically satisfactory results have been reported. This stump pain has been suggested to result from dynamic instability of the proximal ulnar stump. Several types of tenodesis have recently been performed simultaneously with the Sauvé-Kapandji procedure to stabilize the proximal ulnar stump and thus relieve the associated pain...

OBJECTIVE: Loss of teeth frequently results in compound horizontal and vertical alveolar bone defects. An appropriate bone structure is the key for implant placement and bony support of soft tissues. Advanced bone augmentation techniques are required for the reconstruction of these defects. This report will present a new bone block grafting technique with 12-month follow-up. METHOD: The seedling technique was used to augment the alveolar bone 3-dimensionally with autologous bone block and an osseointegrated implant in a 2-stage procedure...

Diagnostic errors in radiology are frequent and can cause severe patient harm. Despite large performance differences between radiologists and non-radiology physicians, the latter often interpret medical images because electronic health records make images available throughout the hospital. Some people argue that non-radiologists should not diagnose medical images at all, and that medical school should focus on teaching ordering skills instead of image interpretation skills. We agree that teaching ordering skills is crucial as most physicians will need to order medical images in their professional life...

OBJECTIVES: In 2011 an ACR/EULAR collaboration developed new remission definitions for RA. In the present study, we evaluated the prevalence and predictive validity of these new ACR/EULAR remission criteria in 4 different European early rheumatoid arthritis cohorts. METHODS: Data from a tot al of 722 patients with early RA were analysed. Presence of remission at 6 months, as defined by one of the 4 proposed ACR/EULAR remission definitions was used to predict good functional and radiological outcome between 1 and 2 years of follow-up...

C7WD is a practical, valid, and reliable measure that could clearly indicate a risk of hyperkyphosis and vertebral fracture in the elderly. The findings might be particularly of use in regions difficult to access radiology or for the determination of those who need further invasive radiologic examination and therapy. PURPOSE: To investigate psychometric properties of the 7th cervical vertebra wall distance (C7WD) to determine the risk of thoracic hyperkyphosis and spinal fracture, as compared to a standard radiologic Cobb's method...

Tuberculosis (TB) is still an endemic disease in Malaysia. Cystic lung disease in post primary tuberculosis is not common. It can occur before, during or after completion of anti-TB treatment. Clinical history and review of serial chest radiograph is paramount to make the diagnosis. This case report highlights an interesting case of a young female patient who developed extensive cystic lung disease during the course of anti-TB treatment and the importance of recognizing this unusual manifestation.
