Klinik für Orthopädie (Friedrichsheim), Universitätsklinikum Frankfurt, Marienburgstr. 2, 60528, Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland.

The treatment of early onset scoliosis (EOS) in children is a complex and demanding challenge in the treatment of spinal deformities. Conservative treatment with physiotherapy is indicated in mild forms with a Cobb angle from 10° and additionally a corset treatment with a Cobb angle of more than 20°. After exhaustion of the conservative measures or a progression of spinal scoliosis of 10° or deformities of more than 35°, a surgical approach should be considered in order to prevent respiratory insufficiency as well as severe postural and thoracic deformities.

Effect of Instrumentation Level on Mental Health Subscale of Scoliosis Research Society Outcomes Questionnaire in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis.

Cureus 2021 Apr 1;13(4):e14234. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Baltalimani Bone Diseases Research and Training Hospital, Istanbul, TUR.

Introduction Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) surgery aims to obtain a flexible and stable spine, correct axial rotation and halt curve progression by fusing the least number of motion segments. Longer fusions can improve deformity correction, but late decompensation and lumbar degeneration may occur. Even some daily issues can be problematic in some scoliosis patients. Read More

Quantification of dental macrowear using 3D occlusal surface topographic measurements in deciduous and permanent molars of children.

Am J Phys Anthropol 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Unit of Forensic Anthropology, Medical University of Vienna, Centre for Forensic Medicine, Vienna, Austria.

Objectives: Childhood paleodietary reconstruction via dental macrowear analysis is limited in part by available methods to measure dental macrowear. We describe a method to quantify dental macrowear progression (in both deciduous and permanent molars) using a handheld intraoral scanner and two 3D occlusal topographic measurements. We assess the agreement of our macrowear proxies with an established qualitative wear scoring system and their relationship to age. Read More

Modification and application of the proximal humerus ossification system to adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients.

Spine Deform 2021 May 3. Epub 2021 May 3.

Division of Orthopedics, Texas Children's Hospital, Department of Orthopedics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Purpose: We have previously demonstrated that proximal humeral ossification patterns are reliable for assessing peak height velocity in growing patients. Here, we sought to modify the system by including medial physeal closure and evaluate whether this system combined with the Cobb angle correlates with progression to surgery in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

Methods: We reviewed 616 radiographs from 79 children in a historical collection to integrate closure of the medial physis into novel stages 3A and 3B. Read More

The Potential Role of Small-Molecule PERK Inhibitor LDN-0060609 in Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma Treatment.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Apr 26;22(9). Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Clinical Chemistry and Biochemistry, Medical University of Lodz, 90-419 Lodz, Poland.

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) constitutes the most common type of glaucoma. Emerging evidence suggests that Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress and the protein kinase RNA-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK)-mediated Unfolded Protein Response (UPR) signaling pathway play a key role in POAG pathogenesis. Thus, the main aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the PERK inhibitor LDN-0060609 in cellular model of glaucoma using primary human trabecular meshwork (HTM) cells. Read More

Department of Podiatry, Faculty of Nursing, Physiotherapy and Podiatry, Universidad de Sevilla, C/Avice-na s/n, 41009 Seville, Spain.

The study of the foot is relevant in kinematic analyses of gait. Images captured through a lens can be subjected to various aberrations or distortions that affect the measurements. An in vitro study was performed with a rearfoot simulator to compare the apparent degrees (photographed) with the real ones (placed in the simulator) in the plane of the rearfoot's orientation, according to variations in the capture angle in other planes of space (the sagittal plane and transverse plane-the latter determined by the foot progression angle).

Proximal Junctional Kyphosis in Adult Spinal Deformity: Definition, Classification, Risk Factors, and Prevention Strategies.

Asian Spine J 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA.

Proximal junctional problems are among the potential complications of surgery for adult spinal deformity (ASD) and are associated with higher morbidity and increased rates of revision surgery. The diverse manifestations of proximal junctional problems range from proximal junctional kyphosis (PJK) to proximal junctional failure (PJF). Although there is no universally accepted definition for PJK, the most common is a proximal junctional angle greater than 10° that is at least 10° greater than the preoperative measurement.

Can ultrasound on admission in active labor predict labor duration and a spontaneous delivery?: Condensation: Ultrasound at the beginning of the active phase can predict length of labor and mode of delivery in nulliparous women.

Am J Obstet Gynecol MFM 2021 Apr 23:100383. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

National Center for Fetal Medicine, St. Olavs hospital, Trondheim University Hospital, Trondheim, Norway; Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Stavanger University Hospital, Stavanger, Norway; Institute of Clinical and Molecular Medicine, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway.

Background: Identifying predictive factors for a normal outcome at admission in the labor ward would be of value for planning labor care, timing interventions and in preventing labor dystocia. Clinical assessments of fetal head station and position at the start of labor have some predictive value but the value of ultrasound methods for this purpose has not been investigated. Studies using transperineal ultrasound before labor onset show possibilities of using these methods to predict outcome. Read More

UZ Leuven, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Herestraat 49, 3000 Leuven, Belgium. Electronic address:

We report on a retrospective cohort of 50 cases of three-ligament tenodesis for scapholunate instability. Fifteen cases (30% of our cohort) needed salvage surgery (11 proximal row carpectomies, 2 partial and 2 total wrist fusions) at an average of 33 months and are considered "failures". Of the 35 remaining cases ("success"), 16 (32% of our cohort) were reviewed at average 111 months and had good functional outcomes (QuickDASH 18/100, PRWE 11/100, pain 1/10, satisfaction 9/10).

Analysis of Gait Motion Changes by Intervention Using Robot Suit Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) in Myelopathy Patients After Decompression Surgery for Ossification of Posterior Longitudinal Ligament.

Front Neurorobot 2021 31;15:650118. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan.

Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) is a hyperostonic condition in which the posterior longitudinal ligament becomes thick and loses its flexibility, resulting in ectopic ossification and severe neurologic deficit (Matsunaga and Sakou, 2012). It commonly presents with myelopathy and radiculopathy and with myelopathy progression motor disorders and balance disorders can appear. Even after appropriate surgical decompression, some motor impairments often remain. Read More

Rapid growth of primary uveal melanoma following intravitreal bevacizumab injection: a case report and review of the literature.

Digit J Ophthalmol 2021 Feb 3;26(3):27-30. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Uveal melanoma size is a significant predictor of tumor metastasis. Although the relationship between antivascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF) and uveal melanoma growth has been studied, results are paradoxical, and the relationship remains controversial. We report the case of a 65-year-old man who presented with elevated intraocular pressure in his right eye, neovascularization of his iris, and significant corneal edema, which obscured the view of the angle.
