Rachna Madan, LaTia D Peavy, Breland Crudup, Andetta Hunsaker
Line malposition may result in significant iatrogenic complications. Awareness of the most common types of line malposition and the frequency of significant line-related complications is an important reminder to the radiologist to look carefully at all lines, especially the devices that are most commonly subject to malposition. Alert Notification of Critical Results (ANCR) are computer-generated pages or e-mails created by the radiologist to inform referring clinicians of significant radiologic findings. The alert is logged on the computer and all data are saved for future review...

BACKGROUND: Cranioplasty is a surgical procedure that has still a high rate of complications, although it is commonly considered an easy and routine operation. In the literature, cranioplasty complications may rise up to 41% of cases, and the most frequently reported are infections, autologous bone flap resorption, and hematomas. Although possible, poor cosmetic results are rarely mentioned. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the cases of 313 patients who underwent 377 surgical procedures for cranioplasty and reoperations for complications between 2008 and 2014...

Unaccompanied minors refer to immigrants who are under the age of 18 and are not under the care of a parent or legal guardian. Age assessment is used in Europe mainly to establish whether or not an individual is under 18 years of age and therefore eligible for protection under the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN - CRC). EU Member States use a combination of techniques to determine the age of a minor and to certify minor status, including interviews and documentation, physical examinations (anthropometric assessment; sexual maturity assessment; dental observation); psychological and sociological assessment; radiological tests (carpal, dental or collarbone x-rays)...

Our aim was to critically assess the influence of preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans on implantation decisions for adult cochlear implant candidates. The working hypothesis was that these routine scans might not provide critical additional information in most adult cochlear implant candidates. The charts of 175 adults with unilateral cochlear implantation were reviewed. Preoperative CT scan reports were audited, and scans with reported pathology were examined by an Otologist/ENT Surgeon. Clinic notes and multidisciplinary team meeting summaries were also analyzed to assess whether the results of the radiology report had influenced the decision to implant or the laterality of implantation...

BACKGROUND: The structural limitations of currently available laser-cut nitinol stents in the highly diseased arterial system of the lower extremity are well described. These devices are frequently used in long-segment occlusions, at the adductor hiatus, and across the knee into the popliteal artery and tibial-peroneal trunk despite concerns related to the high mobility of the knee joint and the potential for external stent compression, fractures, and occlusion. The Supera stent (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, Calif) was developed to provide superior radial strength, fracture resistance, and flexibility compared with laser-cut nitinol stents...

INTRODUCTION: The use of low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in the treatment of nonunions is still controversial. The present study is concerned with whether this procedure has a clinical use and which cofactors influence its therapeutic results. METHODS: In this prospective, single institution, observational study, data from October 2010 to October 2013 from 61 nonunions in 60 patients treated with EXOGEN(®) LIPUS therapy were analysed. The average age was 45...

PURPOSE: Orbital vascular malformations are classified by their hemodynamic properties, either high or low flow. Low-flow lesions may be simple venous, lymphatic, or combined lymphaticovenous malformations. The authors report a series of cases in which predominantly low flow, venous lesions were unexpectedly noted to have arterial feeders. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients identified by the authors as having orbital varices with arterial components was conducted...

We report identification and genetic characterization of a rare skeletal disorder that remained unidentified for decades in a village of Jammu and Kashmir, India. The population residing in this region is highly consanguineous and a lack of understanding of the disorder has hindered clinical management and genetic counseling for the many affected individuals in the region. We collected familial information and identified two large extended multiplex pedigrees displaying apparent autosomal recessive inheritance of an uncharacterized skeletal dysplasia...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 17 % of all fractures involve the distal radius. Two-thirds require reduction due to displacement. High redislocation rates and functional disability remain a significant problem after non-operative treatment, with up to 30 % of patients suffering long-term functional restrictions. Whether operative correction is superior to non-operative treatment with respect to functional outcome has not unequivocally been confirmed. The IlluminOss® System was introduced in 2009 as a novel, patient-specific, and minimally invasive intramedullary fracture fixation...

AIM: A pericallosal lipoma is a fat-containing lesion occurring in the interhemispheric fissure closely related to the corpus callosum, which is often abnormal. This is the most common location for an intracranial lipoma. In this study, we aim to report on the clinical and radiographic aspects of ten patients diagnosed with pericallosal lipomas. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients who presented to the neurology and neurosurgery outpatient clinics of Kayseri Training and Research Hospital between 2010 and 2014 revealed that 10 patients had the diagnosis of pericallosal lipoma...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: In this retrospective case series, we utilize arthroscopy as the gold standard to determine if magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee can predict osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesion stability, the most important information to guide patient treatment decisions. It is hypothesized that the classification system of the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) will allow for improved assessment of lesion grade and stability in OCD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Routine MRI studies of 46 consecutive patients with arthroscopically proven OCD lesions (mean age: 23...

BACKGROUND: The acquisition of a new 320-row multidetector computed tomography angiography (CTA) scanner at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital has provided higher quality imaging with less radiation exposure and shorter time of acquisition. However, its reliability has not been fully proven in critical vascular lesions when it comes to replacing a more invasive examination such as cerebral angiography. We wished to validate the accuracy of this equipment to investigate four common indications for patients to undergo conventional digital subtraction angiography: subarachnoid hemorrhage, vasospasm, unusual intracerebral hemorrhage, and unruptured aneurysm...

To empower patients to participate in their medical care and decision-making, effective communication is critical. In radiology, the clinical report is the primary medium of communication. Although radiologists historically have authored reports with the referring provider as the intended reader, patients increasingly access the reports through portals to electronic health record systems. We developed a system named PORTER (Patient-Oriented Radiology Reporter) to augment radiology reports with lay-language definitions...

BACKGROUND: The results of microsurgical treatment for middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms (ANs) have been highly satisfying for decades, notoriously posing a challenge for interventional neuroradiologists. Following the International Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial (ISAT) study results, most centres across Europe and the USA switched to a "coil first" policy. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and critically review the substantiation of this change. METHODS: The authors conducted a single-institution retrospective study of MCA AN treatment between January 2000 and December 2013 maintaining a "clip first" policy...

Chylothorax is a multi-factorial complication, frequently of an operation or an accident, but rarely of a tumour. In the absence of prospective or randomised studies evidence-based treatment is normally based on personal experience, ideally in the possession of retrospective analyses using the "best practice" method. The aim of the authors was the review the up-to-date chylothorax treatments. They performed the PubMed database's "chylothorax" keyword search of the publications reported in the last ten years...

INTRODUCTION: Osteofibrous dysplasia is a rare non-neoplastic disease that is almost exclusive to pediatric tibial diaphysis. Wide excision of the lesion is recommended to avoid recurrence. However, such radical surgery will results in large segmental bone defects that will require further extensive reconstructive surgery. We report a novel approach of treating bone defect by implementing the diamond concept of bone healing using autologous bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs)...
