Multihit Injury of the Radial Nerve in a 62-year-old Woman: A Case Report.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2022 Jun 20;10(6):e4414. Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Department of Hand-, Plastic, Reconstructive and Burn Surgery, BG Klinik Tübingen, University of Tübingen, Germany.

We report the case of a 62-year-old female patient with a triple-crush radial nerve injury, diagnosed in subsequent order following a fracture of the left humerus. The patient developed flaccid paralysis of all muscles innervated by the left radial nerve except the triceps brachii and reported a sensory deficit corresponding to the innervation territories of the posterior nerve of the forearm as well as the superficial branch of the radial nerve. Following neurolysis of the radial nerve at the humerus level, wrist extension as well as sensory perception on the dorsal aspect of the forearm recovered, but finger extension and thumb abduction were still impossible.

Impact of continuity of care on risk for major osteoporotic fracture in patients with new onset rheumatoid arthritis.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 17;12(1):10189. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Preventive Medicine, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 50-1 Yonsei-ro, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, 03722, Republic of Korea.

There is a clear relationship between rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and major osteoporotic fracture (MOF), although there is limited evidence on the effect of continuity of care (COC) on MOF in these patients. We investigated the association between COC and risk of MOF, including fractures of the lumbar spine and pelvis, forearm, and hip, among newly diagnosed RA patients aged ≥ 60 years. A total of 8715 incident RA patients from 2004 to 2010 were included from the Korean National Health Insurance Service-Senior cohort database. Read More

A micro-costing analysis of post-fracture care pathways: results from the International Costs and Utilities Related to Osteoporotic Fractures Study (ICUROS).

Osteoporos Int 2022 Jun 15. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Medicine-Western Health, The University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC, Australia.

This study identified the costs and health-related quality of life impacts of several post-fracture multidisciplinary care pathways specific to individual skeletal site (hip, distal forearm, vertebrae, humerus). These care pathways may assist healthcare providers in allocating resources for osteoporotic fractures in more effective and cost-efficient ways.

Prescribing braces after forearm fractures does not decrease refracture rate.

J Pediatr Orthop B 2022 Jun 10. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Department of Orthopedics, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, New York, USA.

Refracture is one of the most common complications of pediatric forearm fractures. One way to decrease this risk is to extend immobilization with a brace after the cast has been removed to allow for a range of motion exercises. The purpose of this study was to examine whether prescribing a brace after casting was discontinued decreased the risk of refracture. Read More

Testing a new method of osteosynthesis of forearm fractures in children; a prospective randomized controlled longitudinal study.

J Child Orthop 2022 Apr 30;16(2):88-97. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Copenhagen University Hospital, Hvidovre, Denmark.

Analysis and validation of a 3D finite element model for human forearm fracture.

Int J Numer Method Biomed Eng 2022 May 13:e3617. Epub 2022 May 13.

Key Laboratory of Bionic Engineering, Ministry of Education, Jilin University, Changchun, China.

Most researchers have performed finite element (FE) analysis of the human forearm fracture by exploring the strength and load transmission of the bones. However, few studies concentrated a complete simulation of the whole forearm complex including ligaments. This paper aims to investigate the load transmission through the bones, contact stress at the joints and strain in the ligaments by using an elaborate FE model, further validating the fracture condition for human forearm.
