BACKGROUND: Elite American football athletes are at high risk for Jones fractures. Fixation is recommended to minimize nonunion and allow early return to play. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the prevalence of Jones fracture repair in athletes invited to the National Football League (NFL) Combine and the impact of fracture repair on short-term NFL participation compared to athletes with no history of repair. METHODS: A total of 1311 athletes participating in the Combine from 2012 to 2015 were evaluated...

Objectives: Geographic variation in the use of post-acute care (PAC - skilled nursing facility and home health care) after hospital discharge is substantial, but reasons for this remain largely unexplored. PAC use in urban hospitals compared to rural hospitals may be one key contributor. We aimed to describe PAC use, explore substitution of one type of PAC for another, and identify how PAC use varies by diagnosis in urban and rural settings. Study Design: Secondary analysis of the 2012 National Inpatient Sample including adult discharges to PAC after a hospitalization...

Discogenic back pain presents a major public health issue, with current therapeutic interventions limited to short-term symptom relief without providing regenerative remedies for diseased intervertebral discs (IVD). Many of these interventions are invasive and can diminish the biomechanical integrity of the IVDs. Low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) is a potential treatment option that is both non-invasive and regenerative. LIPUS has been shown to be a clinically effective method for the enhancement of wound and fracture healing...

INTRODUCTION: Improvements in the medical management of cystic fibrosis (CF) in recent years have resulted in increased prevalence of long-term sequelae of the condition, such as low bone mineral density (BMD) and hence an increased risk of fractures in later life. Aim To explore the interaction between BMD and lung function, nutrition, and genotype. METHODS: This study was a retrospective audit of 202 children with CF from August 2000 to January 2016 to investigate associations between BMD Z-scores with clinical status, nutrition, and genetics using dual-energy absorptiometry X-ray data from the Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, Australia...

BACKGROUND: Malreduction of unstable syndesmotic ankle fractures is common. This study compared the reduction quality of an anterolateral open technique (OT) versus a conventional minimally invasive technique (MIT). METHODS: Fourteen fresh-frozen lower torso specimens with 28 matched lower extremities underwent computed tomography (CT) to measure syndesmosis position before dissection. Reduction was performed using direct visualization and fluoroscopy for the OT group (right-sided specimens) and fluoroscopy only for the MIT group (left-sided specimens)...

Subtrochanteric femur fractures remain a challenge for surgeons to obtain and maintain adequate reduction and stable fixation. For this reason multiple techniques have been described but we are unaware of a detailed contemporary description of the combination of provisional plating prior to intramedullary fixation in the lateral decubitus position. We present our technique as it was used from 2011-2015 to treat 22 fractures and how it compared clinically to the other 48 subtrochanteric femur fractures treated during that period...

Background and purpose - The loss of bone mineral in the proximal femur following hip arthroplasty may increase the fracture risk around uncemented stems. We hypothesized that the surgical approach to the hip might influence bone mineral changes around the femoral stem in patients with a femoral neck fracture (FNF). Patients and methods - This was a pre-specified subgroup analysis (n = 51) of an ongoing randomized trial (n = 120) in patients with FNF. Participants were allocated to an uncemented hemiarthroplasty inserted through a direct lateral (Hardinge) approach or an anterolateral (modified Watson-Jones) approach...

Craniomaxillofacial trauma management has continued to improve and evolve as a result of advances in technology and scientific inquiry. Controversies exist where there is little evidence-based literature to guide treatment in frontal sinus management, rigid versus absorbable fixation, open versus closed treatment of mandibular condyle fractures, extraction of teeth in the line of fracture, optimal timing for repair of mandible fractures, antibiotic use for facial wounds and fractures, and reconstructive materials in orbital fracture reconstruction...

Deprivation predicts increased hip fracture risk. Over 14 years, hip fracture incidence increased among men with persisting inequalities. Among women, inequalities in incidence were less pronounced; whilst incidence decreased overall, this improvement was seen marginally less in women from the most deprived areas. Hip fracture prevention programmes have not reduced inequalities. PURPOSE: Deprivation is associated with increased hip fracture risk. We examined the effect of area-level deprivation on hip fracture incidence in England over 14 years to determine whether inequalities have changed over time...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to compare the mechanical properties of metacarpal neck fracture fixation by headless compression screw (HCS) with that of Kirschner wire (KW) cross-pinning and locking plate (LP) fixation. METHODS: A metacarpal neck fracture was created in 30 fourth-generation composite Sawbones metacarpal models. A volar-based wedge was removed using a custom jig to simulate a typical apex dorsal fracture, unstable in flexion. The models were divided into 3 equal groups based on the method of fixation: retrograde cross-pinning with two 1...

Anterior mid-tibial cortex stress fractures (ATCSF) are uncommon and notoriously challenging to treat. They are termed high risk due to their predilection to prolonged recovery, nonunion and complete fracture. Early diagnosis is essential to avoid progression and reduce fracture complications. Imaging plays a key role in confirming the diagnosis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is accepted as the gold standard modality due to its high accuracy and nonionizing properties. This report describes three cases of ATCSFs in recreational athletes who had positive radiographic findings with no significant MRI changes...

BACKGROUND: The lack of evidence-based guidelines on the use of prophylactic inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) in patients after trauma has led to variation of its application. We seek to understand the national trend of the use of prophylactic IVCF in a trauma population. 

 METHODS: A retrospective review of the National Trauma Databank (2002-2014) was performed to identify patients who received an IVCF after trauma. Those without a pre-existing venous thromboembolism (VTE) or discharge diagnosis of VTE were classified as receiving prophylactic IVCF...

Due to dramatic improvements in life expectancy we are seeing a rapidly growing population of older people. Increasing frailty and susceptibility to fragility fractures are becoming pressing issues for both the individuals that suffer them as well as society, through pressures on health and social care budgets. The success of fracture liaison services, co-ordinated programmes enhancing the management of the fracture, osteoporosis, frailty and falls risk, is undisputed. To achieve optimal outcomes, however, it is important to have a standardisation of design, scope and structure of the service...

PURPOSE: A major concern for patients following distal radius fracture fixation is when they can resume driving. This decision has medical, legal, and safety considerations, but there are no evidence-based guidelines to assist the surgeon. The goal of this study was to observe when patients are capable of safely resuming driving following surgical fixation of the distal radius. METHODS: Patients undergoing volar plating of a distal radius fracture were prospectively enrolled...
