One-year change in handgrip strength in patients with hip fracture: a prospective compa...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9893558
BMC Geriatrics; Kim CH, Han J et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Handgrip strength (HGS) has been adopted as one of the diagnostic tools for sarcopenia and is gaining attention because of its association with osteoporotic hip fractures. Longitudinal data of HGS at multiple follow-up intervals in older hip fractures are lacking. We aimed to investigate and compare the HGS changes in patients with hip fracture within 1-year with those in patients with hip dise...

A case report of an ischaemic stroke, caused by a primary cardiac intimal sarcoma.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9893665
BMC Cardiovascular Disorders; Lloyd J, Gilliat N et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Intimal sarcomas are an extremely rare type of primary cardiac malignancy. They most commonly present with symptoms of cardiac dysfunction. We present a case of intimal sarcoma identified without any cardiac signs or symptoms. Cardiac sarcomas historically carry a very poor prognosis. A 57-year-old man presented with a sudden onset of left limb weakness and disorientation. MRI brain identified ...

BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth; Wang X, Yang B et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) treated with either high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation (HIFU-a) or uterine artery embolization (UAE) combined with ultrasound-guided dilation and curettage (USg-D&C) was effective. However, there is insufficient comparative research evidence on clinical efficacy and subsequent pregnancy outcomes after previous CSP treatment. This study aims to investigate t...

Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery; Hadjinikolaou L, Acharya M et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - We compare the early and late outcomes of a modified aortic root remodelling (ARR) technique for aortic root replacement without mobilisation or reimplantation of the coronary ostia, with those of the modified Bentall-de Bono procedure. A retrospective observational study was performed comprising 181 consecutive patients who underwent aortic root replacement with a modified Bentall-de Bono proc...

Clinicopathologic characteristics of thymic clear cell carcinoma: a case report with li...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9893587
Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery; Zhao Z, Zeng Q et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Thymic clear cell carcinoma is a rare mediastinal neoplasm, with only 25 reported cases to date. We report a case of a 45-year-old man with thymic clear cell carcinoma. We think imaging and laboratory tests may be helpful for differential diagnosis. A 45-year-old male was admitted to a local hospital for chest distress with cardiopalmus. CT showed a mediastinal mass. Laboratory examination resu...

Canadian Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology; Xia H, Zhang H et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - The surgical treatment of primary intrahepatic bile duct stones is associated with high rates of postoperative complications, stone recurrence, and reoperation. This study aimed to report an 11-year experience in the management of postoperative recurrence of intrahepatic bile duct stones, analyze the causes of the reoperation, and establish appropriate surgical procedures. The records of 148 pa...

Influence of the deviated center of rotation on the range of motion after cervical disc...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9890835
BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders; Yan K, Shi Z et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Short-term researches have studied the change of the center of rotation (COR) after the Bryan Cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA). But there is a lack of long-term studies focusing on the location of COR and its influence after surgery. Clinical and radiographic materials of patients who received CDA were retrospectively reviewed. Written informed consents were obtained. Clinical outcome was acces...

https://doi.org/10.1186/s12886-022-02734-y
BMC Ophthalmology; Scheres LMJ, van den Biggelaar FJHM et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Trabeculectomy is the "gold standard" initial surgical procedure for open-angle glaucoma worldwide. During the last decade, the introduction of less invasive procedures, including new bleb-forming surgery such as the MicroShunt, has altered the approach of glaucoma management. At present, there is insufficient evidence comparing the effectiveness between these procedures nor versus trabeculecto...

Treatment and outcomes of chronic locked posterior shoulder dislocations: a retrospecti...
https://doi.org/10.1186/s12891-023-06200-8
BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders; Haritinian EG, Stoica IC et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Posterior shoulder dislocations are rare injuries that are often missed on initial presentation. Cases left untreated for more than three weeks are considered chronic, cannot be reduced closely (they become locked) and are usually associated with a significant reverse Hill-Sachs defect. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of chronic locked posterior shoulder dislocations treated ...

Feb 2nd, 2023 - The aim of this study was to compare open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with revision surgery for the surgical management of Unified Classification System (UCS) type B periprosthetic femoral fractures around cemented polished taper-slip femoral components following primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). Data were collected for patients admitted to five UK centres. The primary outcome me...

Resisting arrest: Perioperative confirmation and management of an iatrogenic aortocoron...
https://doi.org/10.4103/aca.aca_310_20
Annals of Cardiac Anaesthesia; Klompas AM, Kawajiri H et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Although rare, iatrogenic aortocoronary arteriovenous fistulae (ACAVF) occur when a coronary graft is mistakenly anastomosed to an epicardial vein rather than its intended arterial target. Patients may be asymptomatic, demonstrate angina, dyspnea, arrhythmias, syncope, or diminished exercise capacity, and may have wide pulse pressures with evidence of coronary steal. A thorough insight into the...

https://doi.org/10.1002/14651858.CD015148
The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews; Ashworth NL, Bland JDP et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a very common clinical syndrome manifested by signs and symptoms of irritation of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel in the wrist. Direct and indirect costs of CTS are substantial, with estimated costs of two billion US dollars for CTS surgery in the USA in 1995 alone. Local corticosteroid injection has been used as a non-surgical treatment for CTS many years,...

https://doi.org/10.1186/s12891-023-06162-x
BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders; Rau Y, Huynh T et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Patella fractures account for approximately 1% of all skeletal injuries. Treatment options are vast and no definitive conclusion on what option is the most beneficial could be made so far. Plate osteosynthesis appears to gain in importance. We aim to give insight into the more recent trends and developments as well as establish the epidemiology of patella fractures in Germany by analysing treat...

https://doi.org/10.1186/s13019-023-02120-9
Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery; Müller PP, Heim C et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - While coronary artery bypass grafting is typically considered first choice for the treatment of left main stenosis, there is a trend towards left main stenting due to a steadily aging population in western countries with a high operative risk and patients with single vessel coronary artery disease affecting the left main artery. Nevertheless left main stenting remains controversial, especially ...

https://doi.org/10.1186/s12957-023-02910-4
World Journal of Surgical Oncology; Chen Z, Chen Z et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an aggressive malignancy with high morbidity and mortality. Conversion therapy can improve surgical resection rate and prolong survival time for patients with advanced HCC. We show that combination therapy with lenvatinib and camrelizumab is a novel approach to downstage unresectable HCC. A 49-year-old man was diagnosed with massive HCC with hilar lymph node an...

https://doi.org/10.1186/s13018-023-03544-8
Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research; Li J, Mo L et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Non-vascularized bone grafting (NVBG) has demonstrated to treat osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). There are a number of articles updating the use of NVBG to treat the ONFH, but the percentage of patients subsequently undergoing a total hip arthroplasty (THA) is controversial. Several electronic databases, including PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and Cochrane databases, were searched to...
