Use of negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and a reticulated open cell foam dressing with through holes in the acute care setting.

Int Wound J 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Reading Hospital, Tower Health System, West Reading, Pennsylvania.

Negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d) is an automated system used to deliver, dwell, and remove topical solutions from the wound bed. Recently, a reticulated open cell foam dressing with through holes (ROCF-CC) was developed, which assists with wound cleansing by removing thick exudate and infectious materials. We present our experience using NPWTi-d with ROCF-CC on complex wounds when complete surgical debridement was inappropriate because of medical instability, recurrent non-viable tissue, or palliative treatment plan.

Segment Coordination Variability Differs by Years of Running Experience.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Michigan Performance Research Laboratory, School of Kinesiology.

Running is a popular activity that results in high rates of overuse injury, with less-experienced runners becoming injured at higher rates than their more-experienced peers. While measures of joint kinematics and kinetics and ground reaction forces have been associated with overuse running injuries, similar differences across levels of running experience have not been found. As running is a motor skill that may develop with experience, an analysis of segment coordination and its variability could provide additional insight into why injury incidence decreases with increasing experience.

The Curtis National Hand Center, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.

The purpose of this report is to show that customized component second-toe transfers may improve functional and aesthetic outcomes following bone, soft tissue, and joint destruction of traumatically injured digits. A 22-year-old male sustained a planer injury resulting in loss of the distal volar soft tissues of the middle, ring, and small fingers, along with variable destruction of middle phalanges and distal interphalangeal joints. Simultaneous vascularized second-toe transfers were performed with customized joint and pulp reconstruction of middle and small fingers. Read More

[Medial foot and ankle instability].

Unfallchirurg 2019 Feb;122(2):147-159

Mein Fusszentrum, Eichenstr. 31, 4054, Basel, Schweiz.

The deltoid or medial collateral ligament consisting of superficial and deep components together with the spring ligament is the primary stabilizer of the ankle joint. Injuries of these anatomical structures are more frequent than assumed but are nevertheless often overlooked. Inadequate treatment can lead to chronic pain, instability, hindfoot deformities and ankle arthritis. Read More

The relationship between foot arch flexibility and medial-lateral ground reaction force distribution.

Gait Posture 2019 Jan 10;69:46-49. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Leon Root, MD Motion Analysis Laboratory, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY, United States.

Background: Overuse running injury susceptibility has previously been associated with the magnitude and slope of ground reaction force profiles, most often in the vertical axis. However, despite the implications of excessive pronation and supination on injury susceptibility, very little research has examined the factors that might affect distribution of force in the medial-lateral directions.

Research Question: The purpose of this study was to consider how foot structure, specifically arch flexibility, affects the distribution of ground reaction force between the medial-lateral and vertical planes of motion. Read More

Ground reaction force metrics are not strongly correlated with tibial bone load when running across speeds and slopes: Implications for science, sport and wearable tech.

PLoS One 2019 17;14(1):e0210000. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, United States of America.

Introduction: Tibial stress fractures are a common overuse injury resulting from the accumulation of bone microdamage due to repeated loading. Researchers and wearable device developers have sought to understand or predict stress fracture risks, and other injury risks, by monitoring the ground reaction force (GRF, the force between the foot and ground), or GRF correlates (e.g. Read More

Foot reconstruction with the superficial circumflex iliac artery perforator flap under local anesthesia: Two case reports.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(2):e13888

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, National Nagasaki Medical Center, Japan.

Rationale: The superficial circumflex iliac artery perforator (SCIP) free flap is a popular method used in foot reconstruction. Although the SCIP flap has a relatively short pedicle and does not require intramuscular dissection, general anesthesia is largely preferred for SCIP flap reconstruction. We report 2 cases with the free SCIP flap for skin and soft tissue reconstruction of the foot under local anesthesia. Read More
