Possible role for glucagon in the control of Paget's disease of bone.

Authors:
John Rhys Condon

Postgrad Med J 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Medicine, Greenwich University Hospital, London SE19 3PS, UK

Paget's disease of bone is characterised by overactive osteoclasts that resorb bone at a higher rate than normal. Osteoblasts attempt to repair the damage by laying down new bone which in turn is resorbed leaving a chaotic pattern of lytic and dense sclerotic bone behind. Deformed bone enlarges, becomes vascularised, bends and fractures. Read More

From rigid bone plate fixation to stable dynamic osteosynthesis in mandibular and craniomaxillo-facial surgery: Historical evolution of concepts and technical developments.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, hôpital la Peyronnie, CHU, 34070 Montpellier, France.

Historically, extensive observation of limb fracture healing led to a consensus that only complete rigid immobilization could guarantee recovery. This agreement was arrived at because for a long time progress in treatment was driven by clinicians and did not stem from the application of biological research. The clinical approach was based on immobilization of the fracture by rigid osteosynthesis plates and bicortical screws. Read More

Eighteen years' experience of traumatic subclavian vascular injury in a tertiary referral trauma center.

Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Division of Trauma and Emergency Surgery, Department of Surgery, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Chang Gung University, No.5, Fuxing St., Guishan Dist., Linkou, Taoyuan, 333, Taiwan.

Purpose: Traumatic subclavian vascular injury (TSVI) is rare but often fatal. The precise diagnosis of TSVI remains challenging mainly because of its occult nature, less typical presentations, and being overlooked in the presence of polytrauma. Compared to penetrating injuries, it is even more difficult to identify TSVI in patients who have blunt injuries and no visible bleeding. Read More

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Oral and Maxillofacial Department, Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Fractures of the facial skeleton place a burden on healthcare systems at the individual and population level. It is suggested that a high proportion of such patients are non-compliant with various aspects of their care. It stands to reason that non-compliance would contribute to adverse outcomes and increased costs in general. Read More

A Novel Method for Fracture Blister Management Using Circumferential Negative Pressure Wound Therapy with Instillation and Dwell.

Cureus 2018 Oct 29;10(10):e3509. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Orthopedic Surgery, Queen's Medical Center, Honolulu, USA.

High- and low-energy fractures can result in nearby skin blistering. These so-called "fracture blisters" can be troublesome in the face of surgery and currently no uniform consensus regarding their management exists. Preoperatively, we used circumferential negative pressure wound therapy with sterile saline instillation (NPWT-id) to treat two patients with closed fractures who had developed significant skin blistering.

Pseudoaneurysm Following Endoscopic-Assisted Repair of Subcondylar Fracture.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2018 Dec 27;11(4):302-304. Epub 2017 Oct 27.

Department of Otolaryngology, Denver Health and Hospital Authority, Denver, Colorado.

Pseudoaneurysms are a known complication following facial trauma and orthognathic surgery. Few reports exist of this clinical entity following traditional open techniques of repair, and none have been associated with endoscopic-assisted open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of a subcondylar fracture. We present a case of a 33-year-old man who developed pseudoaneurysm after endoscopic-assisted ORIF as well as a review of the literature on this topic. Read More

Traumatic Anterosuperior Dislocation of the Intact Mandibular Condyle into the Temporal Fossa.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2018 Dec 27;11(4):296-301. Epub 2017 Oct 27.

Odontology School of Pontificial Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC - MG), Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation, or luxation, occurs when the condyle crosses the articular eminence in such a way that it does not return to its correct anatomical position, unless aided by a reduction in external forces for TMJ. The diagnosis of condylar luxation is clinical; however, image exams are important in classifying the types of condylar luxation and associated fractures. Displacement of the TMJ can occur due to either an exaggerated mouth opening or a forced opening and occasionally is associated with a high-impact trauma to the jaw, the latter being an extremely rare condition.

Two- versus Three-Point Internal Fixation of Displaced Zygomaticomaxillary Complex Fractures.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2018 Dec 27;11(4):256-264. Epub 2017 Jul 27.

Department of Rheumatology and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Human Medicine, Zagazig University, Zagazig, El Sharkya, Egypt.

Despite the high frequency of the zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures, there is no consensus among facial reconstructive surgeons regarding the best surgical management; thus, surgical choice for ZMC fractures is still challenging. This study included 40 patients with displaced ZMC fracture. Twenty patients were treated with open reduction and internal fixation (OR/IF) using two-point fixation technique (at infraorbital margin and zygomaticofrontal buttress region) and the remaining 20 patients were treated with OR/IF using three-point fixation technique (at frontozygomatic suture, infraorbital margin, and zygomatico maxillary buttress).
