Quantification and Visualization of Anterior Pelvis Bone Density to Optimize Screw Fixation: A Novel Technique.

J Orthop Res 2022 Jun 30. Epub 2022 Jun 30.

University of Washington, Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, Seattle, WA, United State.

Plate fixation of anterior pelvic ring fractures is often a vital component when surgically treating unstable pelvis fractures. Certain plate and screw configurations can have premature implant loosening, potentially in part due to insufficient pullout strength in lower density bone. This study sought to define densities about the anterior pelvic ring using a novel computer-based technique. Read More

Male urethral stricture disease. Why management guidelines are challenging in low-income countries.

BJU Int 2022 Jun 20. Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Urolink, British Association of Urological Surgeons, UK.

Urethral stricture disease is one of the commonest urological pathologies in adult men in low or low-middle income countries, providing a significant work burden for the small number of specialist surgeons who are able to provide appropriate treatment. The underlying causes of anterior urethral stricture relate to urethral fibrosis from sexually transmitted infection, with posterior urethral disruption secondary to pelvic trauma being an equally common cause of stricture disease in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Anterior urethral strictures are often long, and multifocal, and bulbo-prostatic disruptions are usually due to relatively low-velocity pelvic trauma. Read More

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

Generation of hemipelvis surface geometry based on statistical shape modelling and contralateral mirroring.

Biomech Model Mechanobiol 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC, 3010, Australia.

Personalised fracture plates manufactured using 3D printing offer an improved treatment option for unstable pelvic ring fractures that may not be adequately secured using off-the-shelf components. To design fracture plates that secure the bone fragments in their pre-fracture positions, the fractures must be reduced virtually using medical imaging-based reconstructions, a time-consuming process involving segmentation and repositioning of fragments until surface congruency is achieved. This study compared statistical shape models (SSMs) and contralateral mirroring as automated methods to reconstruct the hemipelvis using varying amounts of bone surface geometry. Read More

Clin Kidney J 2022 Jun 31;15(6):1188-1195. Epub 2022 Jan 31.

UCL Department of Nephrology, Royal Free Hospital, University College London, London, UK.

Background: The clinical utility of bone mineral density (BMD) measurement by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is debated in end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). We assessed the ability of BMD measured at different anatomical sites to predict mortality and fracture risk in patients requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT).

Methods: We reviewed all-cause mortality as well as incident hip and overall fracture risk in RRT patients who had BMD measured at the femoral neck, lumbar spine, arm, head, pelvis and total body as part of their routine follow-up between January 2004 and June 2012 at a single university centre.

Orthopedic Surgery, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences, Wardha, IND.

The Morel-Lavallée lesion (MLL) is a closed soft-tissue injury that is frequently associated with high-intensity trauma. The thigh, hip, and pelvic regions are the most typically affected regions. It is critical to recognize and treat an MLL as soon as possible because it is often neglected or its identification is delayed because of other distracting injuries in a polytrauma patient.
