For geriatric patients with hip fractures, the broken bone is the reason for admission, but only part of the overall disease. Indeed, it may be more helpful to consider the patient having geriatric hip fracture syndrome or sustaining a hip attack, as there are many associated medical, social, psychological, and other problems to which attention must be paid. To that end, we have identified a series of 10 steps, collected into a checklist, that can be undertaken for all patients with geriatric hip fracture. In homage to the maxim "we come into the world under the brim of the pelvis and go out through the neck of the femur," we defined our checklist by the acronym APGAR SCORE, named after the classic checklist of the same name used to assess a newborn child...

During fixation of a femoral neck fracture in a 23-year-old male patient with cannulated screws, a broken guide wire fragment inadvertently advanced through the hip joint and protruded into the pelvis. A second surgical approach was needed to remove the broken fragment from the pelvis. Awareness of such a potentially devastating complication will make surgeons more cautious during implementation of orthopedic instruments and increases patient's safety during surgery.

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is an adolescent disease that leads to retroversion of the femoral neck and shaft, relative to the head. Observing that patients with SCFE must walk with an outward foot progression angle and externally rotate the leg in order to flex the hip, we have been performing a femoral shaft rotational osteotomy wherein we rotate the lower femur 45° inward, relative to the upper femur. By correcting retroversion, our goal is to improve functional hip and knee motion, thereby mitigating the effects of SCFE impingement...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the esthetic effect of deep discolored anterior teeth restored by zirconia veneers. METHODS: Small defected deep discolored anterior teeth with complete root canal therapy were restored by zirconia veneers (n=15). The same name teeth on the other side of the same dental arch were chosen as control teeth. The color difference values ΔE of the neck 1/3, the middle 1/3 and the incisor 1/3 between the deep discolored tooth and the normal control tooth before and after therapy were measured to evaluate the esthetic effect of zirconia veneer restoration...

Pyogenic cervical facet joint infections are rare and such infections from a dental origin are even less common. Of these few cases, none have described infection with Streptococcus intermedius as the pathogen. A 65-year-old orthopaedic surgeon complained of fevers, right-sided radiating neck pain, stiffness, swelling, erythema, and right upper extremity weakness one month after he had broken a crown over his right mandibular premolar, a continued source of pain. Imaging of the cervical spine showed a right C4-C5 facet inflammatory arthropathy and a small epidural abscess that was cultured and initially treated with intravenous antibiotics...

PURPOSE: Cancer and birth defects cluster in families more often than expected by chance, but the reasons are neither well known nor well studied. METHODS: From singletons born alive in Denmark between 1 January 1977 and 31 December 2007, we identified children who had no congenital malformations but had a full or half sibling with a congenital malformation (CM) diagnosed in the first year of life; this constituted the exposed group, while children whose siblings had no such condition constituted a reference group...

Nonmelanoma skin cancers are the most common skin cancers in the United States and the most common malignancies afflicting the head and neck region. Reconstruction of resulting defects has significant aesthetic and functional implications, and plastic surgeons are frequently consulted for reconstruction. Reconstruction can be accomplished via a multitude of approaches spanning the reconstructive ladder, and the approach should be individualized based upon both patient-related and defect-related factors. Here the authors propose a simplified approach to facial reconstruction broken down by aesthetic region...

BACKGROUND: The Russel-Taylor type 2B fractures compromised the trochanteric region and medial buttress of proximal femur. This fracture pattern limits the choice of implants and raises the risk of adverse outcomes. We aimed to (i) determine the outcome of Russel-Taylor type 2B fractures treated using reverse less invasive stabilization system plates (LISS-DF) and to (ii) learn what factors affected outcomes after osteosynthesis with reverse LISS plates. DESIGN: A retrospective study SETTING: The study was conducted at a Level III trauma center in Taiwan...

The current study examined children's understanding of No Diving warning signs. Normally-developing 7 to 10 year olds were asked questions to assess their understanding of text, images, and main messages on No Diving warning signs. These structured interviews were audio recorded and responses were later coded. Results revealed that children understood the behavior advised against (diving), why it is prohibited (can hit head on the bottom), and what can happen (serious injury including hospitalization). They understood that breaking your neck results in limitations in mobility and can occur from diving, but they did not anticipate that such an injury is likely to occur...

Use of imaging tools like digital C-arm, tridimensional tomography, and navigational surgery has proven its value to the surgical removal of broken needles. A 32-year-old patient was referred for evaluation of a fractured needle during inferior alveolar nerve block attempt few days before. The patient complained of a pricking sensation at the injured area while moving the neck. A contrasted computed tomography was performed for further evaluation of the needle toward the vascular network of the neck, showing a close location by the left facial artery, parallel to the styloid process of the temporal bone...
