INTRODUCTION: The use of electric bicycles (E-bike) has dramatically increased. E-bikes offer convenient, environmental-friendly, and less expensive alternative to other forms of transport. However, E-bikes provide a new public health challenge in terms of safety and injury prevention. This study is the first to specifically investigate the E-bike related orthopaedic injuries, based on a national trauma registry. METHODS: Data from a National Trauma Registry were reviewed for patients hospitalized following E-bike related injuries...

Authors evaluated longterm results of the survival of patients with metastasis of adenocarcinoma in long bones and pelvis in 72 cases which were treated and followed at Ist Orthpaedic Clinic of the Faculty Hospital of St. Ann in Brno in the period of 1970-1995. Patients were divided into two groups. One group of patients was treated with intralesional operation and in the second group the metastasis was radically resected. The period of survival in the second group was longer. Authors also present a general survey of adjuvant therapy of metastasis of adenocarcinoma in bones...

Thromboembolic complications after arthroscopic shoulder surgery are very unusual and need thorough investigation of the possible origin. In this case of venous pulmonary thromboembolism after arthroscopy of the shoulder, neither a hint of coagulopathy nor an anatomic abnormality could be found that explains this complication. Therefore, irritation of the subclavian vein caused by compression by the motor-driven shaver is probably one cause for our thromboembolic complication. Careful attention to positioning, fluid management, and use of traction, as well as an appreciation of shoulder anatomy to select portal placement will help decrease the common complications associated with shoulder arthroscopy...
