Wheelchair Tilt-in-Space and Recline Functions: Influence on Sitting Interface Pressure and Ischial Blood Flow in an Elderly Population.

Biomed Res Int 2019 6;2019:4027976. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

ETH Zurich, Institute for Biomechanics, 8093 Zurich, Switzerland.

Pressure ulcers (PUs) result from localised injury to the skin and underlying tissue and usually occur over a bony prominence as a result of pressure, often in combination with shear forces. Both pressure magnitude and duration are thought to be key risk factors in the occurrence of PUs, thus exposing wheelchair-bound subjects to high risk of PU development. As a result, wheelchairs that incorporate tilt-in-space and recline functions are routinely prescribed to redistribute pressure away from their ischial tuberosities. Read More

Effects of lumbo-pelvic rhythm on trunk muscle forces and disc loads during forward flexion: A combined musculoskeletal and finite element simulation study.

J Biomech 2019 01 25;82:116-123. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Electronic address:

Previous in-vivo studies suggest that the ratio of total lumbar rotation over pelvic rotation (lumbo-pelvic rhythm) during trunk sagittal movement is essential to evaluate spinal loads and discriminate between low back pain and asymptomatic population. Similarly, there is also evidence that the lumbo-pelvic rhythm is key for evaluation of realistic muscle and joint reaction forces and moments predicted by various computational musculoskeletal models. This study investigated the effects of three lumbo-pelvic rhythms defined based on in-vivo measurements on the spinal response during moderate forward flexion (60°) using a combined approach of musculoskeletal modeling of the upper body and finite element model of the lumbosacral spine.

The entity of thermal-crush-avulsion hand injury (hot-press roller burns) treated with fast acting debriding enzymes (nexobrid): literature review and report of first case.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2018 Mar;31(1):31

Department of Plastic Surgery and Burn Centre, University Hospital of Parma, Italy.

Hand burns are present in >60% of all burn cases and in fire mass casualty incidents even up to 100%. Most trauma and especially burns may be detrimental to the complex and delicate structures of the hand by direct injury, indirect BICS (Burn Induced Compartment Syndrome and interstitial high pressure) or by delayed or faulty treatment. BICS represents a special threat as the increasing swelling and oedema of the small diameter hand and forearm will exert pressure on the capillary/venous system, eventually ending in irreversible damage to the skin, nerves, muscle and vascular bed.

Programa de Pós Graduação em Ciência da Saúde, Universidade Federal de Goiás, Goiânia, Brazil.

Background: Individuals with arterial hypertension often have an autonomic nervous system (ANS) imbalance with predominance of sympathetic ANS. This predominance can lead to injury of several organs affecting its functioning. There is evidence that performing high intensity resistance training (RT) with heavier loads and a lower number of repetitions results in lower cardiovascular stress when compared with lighter loads and a higher number of repetitions.

High-pressure injection injury of the hand: peculiar MRI features and treatment implications.

Skeletal Radiol 2019 Feb 16;48(2):295-299. Epub 2018 Jun 16.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street SW, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA.

High-pressure injection injuries of the hand are rare, but potentially devastating injuries. The amount of tissue damage is dependent on the magnitude of the pressure generated by the device and the composition of the injected material. The standard of care is emergent surgical debridement of the injected material and devitalized tissue. Read More

The effectiveness of a standard drill connected to a core biopsy needle: How to obtain specimens in very strong bone tumors.

Injury 2018 Aug 9;49(8):1612-1616. Epub 2018 Jun 9.

Oncological Orthopaedics Department, Regina Elena National Cancer Institute, Via Elio Chianesi no 53, 00144 Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Core biopsy is today recognized as the gold standard for the diagnosis of bone lesions; unfortunately, when the bone is too solid it can be very difficult to penetrate it; in case of failure, open biopsy is indicated but it is associated with greater contamination and complications. A possible solution is to connect a common orthopedic drill to the core biopsy needle. The aim of the presenting study was to present a technique useful for performing biopsies in case of very strong bone lesions and to evaluate the adequacy and quality of the obtained specimen.

Treatment of an Uncommon High-Pressure Orbital Injection Injury.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Oct;29(7):1829-1831

Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.

Injection injuries occur most commonly in the hand and digits; however, there are a limited number of reports in the literature describing injection injuries involving the orbit. High-pressure orbital injection injuries pose a number of unique challenges to the treating physician, and the approach to treating these injuries remains controversial. Often times, the extent of tissue damage is not fully appreciated at presentation, which may lead to missed diagnoses or inadequate initial treatment. Read More

The open abdomen in trauma and non-trauma patients: WSES guidelines.

World J Emerg Surg 2018 2;13. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Emergency and Trauma Surgery, Parma Maggiore Hospital, Parma, Italy.

Damage control resuscitation may lead to postoperative intra-abdominal hypertension or abdominal compartment syndrome. These conditions may result in a vicious, self-perpetuating cycle leading to severe physiologic derangements and multiorgan failure unless interrupted by abdominal (surgical or other) decompression. Further, in some clinical situations, the abdomen cannot be closed due to the visceral edema, the inability to control the compelling source of infection or the necessity to re-explore (as a "planned second-look" laparotomy) or complete previously initiated damage control procedures or in cases of abdominal wall disruption.
