Is Low-value Testing Before Low-risk Hand Surgery Associated With Increased Downstream Healthcare Use and Reimbursements? A National Claims Database Analysis.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2022 May 24. Epub 2022 May 24.

VOICES Health Policy Research Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford University, Redwood City, CA, USA.

Background: Minor hand procedures can often be completed in the office without any laboratory testing. Preoperative screening tests before minor hand procedures are unnecessary and considered low value because they can lead to preventable invasive confirmatory tests and/or procedures. Prior studies have shown that low-value testing before low-risk hand surgery is still common, yet little is known about their downstream effects and associated costs. Read More

J Hand Surg Am 2022 Apr 19. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. Electronic address:

Purpose: Variations in the description of the flexor pulley system exist, particularly in whether the A1 and A2 pulleys represent discrete or confluent entities. This has potentially important clinical relevance at the time of A1 pulley release for symptomatic trigger finger, given the goal of adequate release without overrelease. The purpose of this study was to determine the relative prevalence of confluent A1 pulleys on a digit-by-digit basis employing 2. Read More

Trigger thumb preceding flexor pollicis longus tendon rupture after distal radius volar plate fixation: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 May 6;94:107050. Epub 2022 Apr 6.

Orthopedic Hand Surgeon, Community Memorial Health System, United States of America.

Introduction: Flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon rupture is a known complication after a distal radius (DR) fracture and subsequent fixation with a volar plate. A commonly accepted theory is the attrition of the flexor tendon by the prominent volar plate or theoretical injury to the tendon during the initial injury. An increasingly rare complication of distal radius open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) with volar plate fixation is stenosing tenosynovitis, more commonly known as trigger finger. Read More

Exosomal miR-146a-5p and miR-155-5p promote CXCL12/CXCR7-induced metastasis of colorectal cancer by crosstalk with cancer-associated fibroblasts.

Cell Death Dis 2022 Apr 20;13(4):380. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Pharmacology, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

C-X-C motif chemokine receptor 7 (CXCR7) is a newly discovered atypical chemokine receptor that binds to C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 12 (CXCL12) with higher affinity than CXCR4 and is associated with the metastasis of colorectal cancer (CRC). Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) have been known to promote tumor progression. However, whether CAFs are involved in CXCR7-mediated metastasis of CRC remains elusive. Read More
