A Single Retrograde Intramedullary Nail Technique for Treatment of Displaced Proximal Humeral Fractures in Children: Case Series and Review of the Literature.

JB JS Open Access 2021 Jan-Mar;6(1). Epub 2021 Jan 25.

Pediatric Orthopedic Department, Children's Hospital, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Displaced proximal humeral fractures in older children with low remodeling potential need to be reduced and fixed. There are many options for stabilization, including external fixation, rigid internal fixation with screws and plates, percutaneous pinning, and flexible intramedullary nailing. The use of 2 flexible retrograde nails, originated at the University of Nancy, France, became the most popular technique in Europe. Read More

Coexistence of Anogenital Psoriasis and Genital Warts - Is There an Optimal Treatment?

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2019 Dec;27(4):270-272

Assoc. Prof. Suzana Ljubojević Hadžavdić, MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Zagreb University Hospital Center, University of Zagreb School of Medicine, Šalata 4, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia;

The prevalence of psoriasis is 2% of the world's population (1). Inverse psoriasis is characterized by the development of erythematous shiny plaques at intertriginous areas of the body. The prevalence of only anogenital involvement appears to be low, but involvement of the anogenital area together with other areas is found in up to 45% of patients with psoriasis (2). Read More

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2019 Sep;23(3):102-110

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital.

Fractures of the proximal humerus are relatively common injuries in adults accounting for 5% of fractures. Nowadays the most common technique used is open reduction internal fixation with LCP plates. The risks associated with open reduction internal fixation had led us to develop and apply a "hybrid" system, which is based on external fixation and closed surgery principles. 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

Complications of Intramedullary Fixation for Distal Radius Fractures in Elderly Patients: A Retrospective Analysis Using McKay's Complication Checklist.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Mar;23(1):71-75

† Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Intramedullary fixation for distal radius fractures is reported to be free of hardware irritation and less invasive than other fixation methods. Some specific complications associated with intramedullary fixation, such as radial nerve sensory neuritis, have been reported, but no study has focused on the complication rates of intramedullary fixation for distal radius fractures in the elderly population. Furthermore, no studies have analyzed common complications, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and flexor tenosynovitis including trigger finger, among patients with distal radius fractures treated by intramedullary fixation based on a comprehensive complication checklist.
