Asymptomatic rupture of an intracranial dermoid cyst: to intervene or not to intervene?
https://doi.org/10.1136/bcr-2021-247105
BMJ Case Reports; Wilson RP

Jan 19th, 2022 - Dermoid cysts are an exceedingly rare phenomenon inside the cranial vault. These benign, slow-growing lesions can rupture, releasing cyst contents into the ventricular system and subarachnoid space causing pathology in the form of chemical meningitis and vasospasm. Here, we present the case of a 26-year-old man who was investigated for a facial nerve palsy and was incidentally found to have a r...

The hernia subsequently enlarged over the course of 3 years until it contained the stomach, leading to a gastric volvulus ...

Does obesity affect patient-reported outcomes following total knee arthroplasty?
https://doi.org/10.1186/s12891-022-04997-4
BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders; Baghbani-Naghadehi F, Armijo-Olivo S et. al.

Jan 19th, 2022 - There is an existing perception that obesity has a negative impact on complications following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, data on the impact of obesity levels on patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) is sparse. We investigated the association between different obesity classes with PROMs among patients who underwent TKA. We performed retrospective secondary analyses on data extracted fro...
