BACKGROUND: Treatment of displaced and angulated radial neck fractures in children is controversial and challenging. Numerous studies have been conducted regarding treatment algorithms and surgical techniques that use fluoroscopy. However, ultrasonography (US)-guided reduction of pediatric radial neck fractures has not been reported yet. We aimed to determine the safety and efficacy of US-guided reduction and fixation of radial neck fractures in children. METHODS: Among 28 cases of radial neck fracture from 2014 to 2016, 12 were classified as type III or IV according to the Judet classification...

Background: Various deformities can occur in the forearm bones when the traumatically dislocated radial head is untreated for a long period. Without correction of all deformities, reduction of the dislocated radial head is difficult to maintain, and forearm and elbow motion will deteriorate after reduction. We evaluated radiographic parameters of forearms with traumatically dislocated radial heads (and of the normal sides) to understand the resulting deformities and the effectiveness of surgical treatment...

BACKGROUND: Minimal micromotion is necessary for osteointegration of cementless radial head prostheses. When radial head fractures extend longitudinally, where the neck cut for prosthetic replacement should be made is uncertain. We hypothesized that complete resection of the notched portion of a radial neck confers no advantage in initial stability compared with not resecting the defect and inserting the implant into a notched radial neck. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The radii of 7 cadavers underwent radial head resection and implantation with a 25-mm-long press-fit radial head stem...

PURPOSE: Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the jaws represents one of the most severe complications after primary or adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) of large head and neck tumors. In advanced ORN cases, surgical management is generally considered the therapy of choice. However, in several severe ORN patients with extensive bone and soft tissue defects, functional and aesthetic reconstruction represents a huge challenge for any surgeon, with an increased risk of post-operative wound healing disorders...

BACKGROUND: Fixation of radial neck fractures can be achieved with a plate and screw construct or with two screws. This study evaluated the biomechanical properties of three different fixation methods following radial neck fractures. METHODS: Twenty-four fourth-generation composite radii were sawed to simulate an unstable radial neck fracture. They were then instrumented with a plate and screw construct or two different orientations (crossed and parallel) of screw fixation...

OBJECTIVES: Defects after ablative tongue cancer surgery can be reconstructed by split-thickness skin grafts or free microvascular flaps. The different surgical options may influence costs, reimbursement, and therefore possible profits. Our goal was to analyze the development of these parameters for different procedures in head and neck reconstruction in Germany over the last decade. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After tumor resection and neck dissection of tongue cancer, three different scenarios were chosen to calculate costs, reimbursement, length of stay (LoS), and profits...

BACKGROUND: In a vessel-depleted neck, distant recipient sites may be the only option for secondary free flap reconstruction. While interposition vein grafts and arteriovenous loops can bridge the gap between the recipient and donor pedicle, they are not without risks. In these scenarios, we examinate the reliablity of a radial forearm free flap (RFFF) as an alternative vascular conduit. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of cases between March 2005 and May 2016 was performed...

We present seven cases of a relatively rare swan neck deformity resulting from chronic radial collateral ligament (RCL) injury of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint in the little finger. All patients were middle-aged women (mean 51 years old, range 42-55), and the duration between the initial injury and surgery was 20 years (range 5-40). The chief complaint was painful snapping of the PIP joint. All patients had hyperextension and ulnar deviation of the PIP joint with mobile swan neck deformities that had not improved with conservative treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Generally, anatomical reduction of shaft fractures through operative treatment is necessary to restore the anatomical relationship of the forearm bones. However, a number of nerves and vessels are located in the proximal radius, which complicates surgery. In this study, we aimed to reduce postoperative complications by using a posterior approach. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We describe an isolated fracture through the radial bicipital tuberosity in a 69-year-old man caused by direct blunt force and our management of the fracture...

Pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) are frequently used actuators in soft robotics due to their structural flexibility. They are generally characterized by the tensile force due to the axial contraction and the radial force with volume expansion. To date, most applications of P AMs have utilized axial contractions. In contrast, we propose a novel way to control radial expansions of particular P AMs using anisotropic behaviors. P AMs generally consist of a cylindrical rubber bladder that expands with injection of air and multiple flexible but inextensible strings or mesh that surround the bladder to generate axial contraction force...

Importance: The management of lentigo maligna (LM) and LM melanoma (LMM) is challenging because of extensive subclinical spread and its occurrence on cosmetically sensitive areas. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) improves diagnostic accuracy for LM and LMM and can be used to delineate their margins. Objectives: To evaluate whether handheld RCM with radial video mosaicing (HRCM-RV) offers accurate presurgical assessment of LM and LMM margins. Design, Setting, and Participants: This prospective study included consecutive patients with biopsy-proven LM and LMM located on the head and neck area who sought consultation for surgical management from March 1, 2016, through March 31, 2017, at the Dermatology Service of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center...

The Essex-Lopresti injury is an extremely rare condition combining radial head or neck fracture, distal radio-ulnar joint dislocation and rupture of the interosseous membrane. However, there are rare or unusual varieties or associated injuries. We report a case of a 46-year-old woman with a posterior dislocation of the radio-humeral joint, a radial shaft fracture, and a distal radio-ulnar joint dislocation. She underwent open reduction and internal fixation of the radial shaft fracture followed by an immobilization by a long elbow splint in supination for 6 weeks...

M Abu-Serriah, S Loughran
Circumferential defects of the hypopharynx are a reconstructive challenge. Various local, regional and free flaps have been described with each having advantages and disadvantages in terms of functional outcomes. The fasciocutaneous radial forearm free flap (RFFF) is one of the most common free flaps used for reconstructing circumferential hypopharyngeal defects. The skin paddle is pliable and reasonably matches the native hypopharyngeal wall. It is easy to raise, has predictable vascular anatomy and a long pedicle...

PURPOSE: Radial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most accurate diagnostic tool in assessing cam-type femoroacetabular impingement. Plain radiographs, however, are useful for the initial diagnosis in the daily practice and there is still debate regarding the optimal lateral view. The purpose of this study was to investigate the reliability of detecting cam deformities using the frog-leg view or the 45° Dunn view by comparison with radial MRI. MATERIAL: 66 consecutive hips with plain radiographs (36 with AP and frog-leg views, 30 with AP and 45° Dunn views) and radial MRI were assessed...
