Chana Rich, James Rayner, Neha Raukar
We present a case of an elderly man who sustained non-displaced fractures through the right superior and inferior pubic rami after a fall from standing and had a tragic outcome. While minimally displaced pubic ramus fractures are typically stable and require only symptomatic treatment, there have been reports, such as this one, of low-energy pubic rami fractures resulting in massive hemorrhage. Despite aggressive resuscitation and embolization of the right obturator artery, our patient ultimately died during his hospitalization...

INTRODUCTION: Pre-operative physical examination of male epispadias allows for classification of epispadias level as glanular (GE), penile (PE) or penopubic (PPE), and for delineation of anatomic anomalies. The incidence of associated extragenital abnormalities, such as vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), bladder neck (BN) abnormality and abnormal pubic diastasis (PD), and their impact on urinary continence has not yet been systematically studied. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to evaluate whether the more proximal level of epispadias correlated with associated extragenital anatomic anomalies seen on initial imaging or endoscopic evaluation, and whether these pre-operative findings contributed to subsequent surgical management and impacted on achieving urinary continence...

OBJECTIVES: Buccal mucosa grafts and fascio-cutaneous flaps are frequently used in long anterior urethral strictures (1). The inlay and onlay buccal mucosa grafts are easier to perform, do not need urethral mobilization and generally have good long-term results (2-4). In the present video, we present a case where we used a double buccal mucosa graft technique in a simultaneous penile and bulbar urethral stricture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 54 year-old male patient was submitted to appendectomy where a urethral catheter was used for two days in May 2015...

The activity patterns of trunk muscles are commonly neglected, in spite of their importance for maintaining body shape. Analysis of the biomechanics of the trunk under static conditions has led to predictions of the activity patterns. These hypotheses are tested experimentally by surface electromyography (EMG). Five horses, with and without a rider, were examined in the walk, trot and canter. Footfall was synchronised with EMG by an accelerometer. Averages of ten consecutive cycles were calculated and compared by statistical methods...

INTRODUCTION: Trans-umbilical laparoscopic-assisted appendectomy (TULAA) combines advantages of open surgery with benefits of laparoscopy and can be performed either by single-incision or with two trocars; the present study aims to compare outcomes and cost of these techniques in a pediatric serie. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients undergoing TULAA between July 2013 and June 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. There were two groups: A (single-incision) - one umbilical trocar for a telescope with inbuilt working channel; and B (2-trocar) - one umbilical trocar for a 'standard' telescope plus a supra-pubic trocar for instruments...

BACKGROUND: Links between sagittal spinal alignment and acetabular orientation attract considerable research attention with the goal of optimising prosthetic cup position. However, whether pelvic incidence (PI) is related to anatomic acetabular orientation remains unknown. We therefore conducted a radiological study with the following objectives: to look for correlations between PI and anatomic acetabular parameters; to describe the sacro-pubic angle (SPA), defined by fixed bony pelvic landmarks, and its relations with acetabular inclination; and to determine whether anatomical parameters (PI and SPA) correlate with demographic characteristics...

INTRODUCTION: Suprapubic hernia is the term to describe ventral hernias located less than 4 cm above the pubic arch in the midline. Hernias with an upper margin above the arcuate line encounter technical difficulties, and the differences in repair methods forced us to define them as large suprapubic hernias. AIM: To present our experience with laparoscopic repair of large suprapubic hernias that allows adequate mesh overlap. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Nineteen patients with suprapubic incisional hernias who underwent laparoscopic repair between May 2013 and January 2015 were included in the study...

Percutaneous pelvic screw placement is challenging due to narrow bone corridors surrounded by vulnerable structures and difficult visual interpretation of complex anatomical shapes in 2D x-ray projection images. To address these challenges, a system for planning, guidance, and quality assurance (QA) is presented, providing functionality analogous to surgical navigation, but based on robust 3D-2D image registration techniques using fluoroscopy images already acquired in routine workflow. Two novel aspects of the system are investigated: automatic planning of pelvic screw trajectories and the ability to account for deformation of surgical devices (K-wire deflection)...

Resolution of mitochondrial (mt) DNA heteroplasmy is possible when applying a massively parallel sequencing (MPS) approach. However, interpretation criteria for matching heteroplasmic sequences will need to be established that address a number of important topics, including the drift of variants in sample types such as human hair shafts. Prior to MPS analysis, we compared three different DNA extraction methods for hair using a custom mtDNA quantitative PCR (mtqPCR) assay, and found that a method involving bead capture significantly outperformed methods currently in place in forensic laboratories...

BACKGROUND: Pubic bone nonunion and delayed union are reported as post-operative complications after peri-acetabular osteotomy (PAO). However, few studies have determined the incidence of delayed union using computed tomography (CT) scans. This study aimed to determine the incidence of delayed union at one year after PAO using X-ray and CT scans. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 150 hips in 132 consecutive patients with acetabular dysplasia who underwent PAO between January 2012 and June 2016 and evaluated 107 hips for which pelvic CT scans taken at one year after PAO were available...
