BACKGROUND: Primary lymphedemas are constitutional abnormalities of the lymphatic system. Secondary lymphedemas occur after damage to the lymphatic system, mainly after cancer treatments or tumour mass compression. There are many other causes, including filariasis, which is nonetheless very rare in France. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 52-year-old man presented with a two-month history of increased size of the left leg. He was asymptomatic and in good general condition...

Stabilization of pelvic ring injuries and certain acetabular fractures using percutaneous techniques is becoming increasingly more common. Intramedullary superior ramus screw fixation is beneficial in both injury types. While implants can be placed in an antegrade or retrograde direction, parasymphyseal ramus fractures benefit from retrograde implant insertion. In some patients, the parabolic osseous anatomy or obstructing soft tissues of the anterior pelvis or thigh can prevent appropriate hand and instrumentation positioning for appropriate retrograde ramus screw insertion through the entire osseous fixation pathway...

To control such a hemorrhage, a displaced pelvic ring must be rapidly reduced and stabilized with a pelvic binder, an external fixator, or a pelvic clamp. Among them, pelvic clamps can be life-saving but pin malposition may cause vascular complications. We present a case of superior gluteal artery pseudoaneurysm caused by AO pelvic C-clamp pin malposition.

A novel series of 3-ketolithocholic acid derivatives as well as estrone derivatives bearing a small ring for the conformational fixation of the side chain were synthesized by using a catalytic [2+2] cycloaddition and a ring-contraction rearrangement. The steroidal derivatives were evaluated for transcriptional activation of vitamin D receptor by luciferase reporter assays. Among them, two estrone derivatives showed a higher efficacy of the transactivation of vitamin D receptor than 3-ketolithocholic acid, and the small ring moieties were found to be important for the efficacy...

Traumatic dislocation of the subtalar joint is an infrequently occurring injury, with open true posterior dislocation an even rarer injury. We describe our treatment of a young motorcyclist who was brought into hospital after a road traffic accident, having sustained an open posterior subtalar dislocation. After initial reduction and resuscitation in the emergency department, he was taken to the operating theater for emergent wound debridement and external fixation of his ankle using a unilateral external fixator device...

BACKGROUND: Opioid-centric pain management strategies have created an epidemic of prescription opioid abuse. This study assesses whether opioid intake is associated with disability, satisfaction with treatment, and pain at the time of suture removal and at 5 to 8 months after suture removal following open reduction and internal fixation of ankle fractures. METHODS: We enrolled 102 adult patients in the study at the time of suture removal, 59 of whom were available for follow-up at 5 to 8 months...

Chronic anterior pelvic ring instability can cause pain and disability. Pain typically is localized to the suprapubic area or inner thigh; often is associated with lower back or buttock pain; and may be exacerbated by activity, direct impact, or pelvic ring compression. Known etiologies of chronic anterior pelvic ring instability include pregnancy, parturition, trauma, insufficiency fractures, athletics, prior surgery, and osteitis pubis. Diagnosis often is delayed. Physical examination may reveal an antalgic or waddling gait, tenderness over the pubic bones or symphysis pubis, and pain with provocative maneuvers...

INTRODUCTION: Open reduction with external fixation (OREF) utilizing fine wire ringed fixators for correction of Charcot deformity has gained popularity over the past decade. Pin site infections are a well-documented complication of external fixation as well as a driver of escalating health care costs. We aimed to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of a novel method of pin site care utilizing active Leptospermum honey-impregnated dressings (MediHoney) in diabetic patients undergoing deformity correction with OREF...

Large segmental bone defect reconstruction with sufficient functional restoration is one of the most demanding challenges in orthopedic surgery. Available regenerative treatment options, as the vascularized bone graft transfer, the Masquelet technique or the Ilizarov distraction osteogenesis, are associated with specific indications and distinct limitations. As an alternative, a hollow cylindrical ceramic-polymer composite scaffold (beta-tricalcium phosphate and poly-lactid co-ε- caprolactone), facilitating a strong surface guiding effect for tissue ingrowth (group 1; n = 6) was investigated here...
