Rethinking the Need for Nail Plate Removal: A Comparison of the Risks Between Standard Nail Bed Repair and Nonoperative Management.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 05;88(3 Suppl 3):S209-S213

From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI.

Purpose: Nail bed injuries are commonly treated with nail plate removal and repair due to concern for future nail deformity. There is controversy whether this is necessary. We compared the outcomes for adult patients with simple nail bed lacerations who underwent either formal nail bed repair or nonoperative management. Read More

Long term results of olecranon fractures treated using the XS nail® system.

Chin J Traumatol 2022 Mar 9. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

Division of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, Rotkreuzklinik Wertheim GGmbH, Wertheim Am Main, Germany.

Purpose: Olecranon fractures are particularly vulnerable to distraction and subsequent fracture dislocation due to the high tensile forces. Surgical treatment aims at reducing the fracture and restoring the anatomical joint surface condition, as well as neutralizing the strain inhibiting fracture healing. The XS nail® (Intercus GmbH, Bad Blankenberg, Germany), an intramedullary implant exerting compression across the entire fracture surface, unlike plates, leaves a minimal extra-cortical profile, and can be secured with threaded locking wires, thereby retaining the anatomical reduction without displacement or steps within the articular surface, which was often found in tension band wiring.

A minimally invasive cerclage of the tibia in a modified Goetze technique: operative technique and first clinical results.

Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg 2021 Dec 24. Epub 2021 Dec 24.

Department of Trauma, Orthopaedics, Plastic and Hand Surgery, University Hospital Augsburg, Augsburg, Germany.

Introduction: In spiral fractures of the tibia, the stability of an osteosynthesis may be significantly increased by additive cerclages and, according to biomechanical studies, be brought into a state that allows immediate full weight bearing. As early as 1933, Goetze described a minimally invasive technique for classic steel cerclages. This technique was modified, so that it can be used for modern cable cerclages in a soft part saving way. Read More

Improved Vancouver Raman Algorithm Based on Empirical Mode Decomposition for Denoising Biological Samples.

Appl Spectrosc 2019 Dec 14;73(12):1436-1450. Epub 2019 Aug 14.

Laboratorio Nacional CI3M, Facultad de Ciencias & CICSaB, Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí, SLP, México.

A novel method based on the Vancouver Raman algorithm (VRA) and empirical mode decomposition (EMD) for denoising Raman spectra of biological samples is presented. The VRA is one of the most used methods for denoising Raman spectroscopy and is composed of two main steps: signal filtering and polynomial fitting. However, the signal filtering step consists in a simple mean filter that could eliminate spectrum peaks with small intensities or merge relatively close spectrum peaks into one single peak.

The circular arc shaped nail for fixing the tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. After clinical results.

Injury 2019 Aug 1;50 Suppl 3:23-31. Epub 2019 Aug 1.

Rostock University Medical Center, Dept. of Trauma, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery, Schillingallee 35, D-18057, Rostock, Germany. Electronic address:

Background: Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis is commonly considered a salvage option for a variety of hindfoot disorders involving the ankle and subtalar joint mostly with concomitant deformity. Retrograde interlocking nailing represents one of the biomechanically most stable fixation modes after reduction of hindfoot geometry. The considerable complications, non-union and revision rates at a moderate outcome reported even with modern retrograde nails underscore the idea that the development of an optimized retrograde nail may be warranted.

Reconstruction of a Thumb Defect Following Subungual Melanoma Resection Using Foucher's Flap.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2019 Mar;27(1):51-52

Assist. Prof. Krešimir Bulić, MD, PhD, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Department of Plastic Surgery, Kišpatićeva 12 , 10 000 Zagreb, Croatia;

Dear Editor, The main challenge in the treatment of subungual melanoma in situ is obtaining adequate oncological resection while preserving the aesthetics and functionality of the affected digit (1). Traditionally, subungual melanoma in situ was treated with amputation of the distal phalanx of the digit, but management has recently become more conservative, attempting to preserve the full length of the digit (1). Although many recent studies support more conservative treatment by demonstrating successful results of the digit salvaging approach for both in situ and invasive subungual melanoma (1-3), there is still no agreed consensus in terms of the optimal surgical approach for this condition (1).

Department of hand surgery, SOS main, CCOM, university hospital of Strasbourg, FMTS, university of Strasbourg, Icube CNRS 7357, hôpital de Hautepierre, 1, avenue Molière, 67200 Strasbourg cedex, France. Electronic address:

Arthrodesis of the thumb metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint usually leads to satisfying results when performed with an open technique. The main complication is adhesion of the extensor tendons that sometimes requires hardware removal associated with tenolysis. The goal of this study was to assess whether a minimally invasive technique could reduce the risk of this complication. Read More
