Blood Adv 2022 Jan 12. Epub 2022 Jan 12.

Tohoku University School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.

MECOM encodes the transcriptional regulators, EVI1 and MDS1-EVI1, from two distinct transcription start sites. EVI1 plays important roles in hematopoiesis and stem cell self-renewal. Recently, our group and others revealed that individuals with MECOM variants present diverse hematological and skeletal defects, including radioulnar synostosis (RUS). Read More

Ortop Traumatol Rehabil 2021 Dec;23(6):433-443

Zagłębiowskie Centrum Onkologii Szpital Specjalistyczny im. Sz. Starkiewicza w Dąbrowie Górniczej, Polska / Starkiewicz Zagłębie Cancer Centre, Dąbrowa Górnicza, Poland Oddział Chirurgii Urazowo-Ortopedycznej, Onkologicznej i Rekonstrukcyjnej / Department of Trauma, Orthopaedic, Oncological and Reconstructive Surgery.

Most trochanteric fractures of the femur are classified as low-energy fractures as they are seen in people with decreased mechanical properties of bone tissue. The treatment is assumed to provide biomechanical fixation with the possibility of dynamization between bony fragments to stimulate the biological processes of bone union. The aim of the study was to analyze a complication presenting as migration of the cervical screw of an intra-medullary nail towards the hip joint acetabulum and present the therapeutic management of this complication.

Prehospital Drug Assisted Airway Management: An NAEMSP Position Statement and Resource Document.

Prehosp Emerg Care 2022 ;26(sup1):42-53

Airway management is a critical intervention for patients with airway compromise, respiratory failure, and cardiac arrest. Many EMS agencies use drug-assisted airway management (DAAM) - the administration of sedatives alone or in combination with neuromuscular blockers - to facilitate advanced airway placement in patients with airway compromise or impending respiratory failure who also have altered mental status, agitation, or intact protective airway reflexes. While DAAM provides several benefits including improving laryngoscopy and making insertion of endotracheal tubes and supraglottic airways easier, DAAM also carries important risks. Read More

The Addition of a Krackow Rip Stop Suture Augment After Achilles Tendon Debridement for Insertional Achilles Tendinopathy: A Biomechanical Study.

Foot Ankle Spec 2021 Dec 21:19386400211033693. Epub 2021 Dec 21.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Naval Medical Center San Diego, San Diego, California.

Background: In the operative treatment of insertional Achilles tendinopathy, the Achilles tendon is often released from its insertion to allow for adequate debridement of pathologic tissue. The use of a double row suture anchor construct has become increasingly favorable among surgeons after Achilles tendon debridement. This study hypothesized that the addition of a Krackow rip stop suture augment to the double row suture anchor construct would increase the repair's maximum load to failure. Read More

Percutaneous insertion of bilateral double J in pelvic cancer patients: Indications, complications, technique of antegrade ureteral stenting.

Gynecol Oncol Rep 2021 Nov 24;38:100864. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Interventional Radiologist, Radiology Department, Heart Institute (InCor), University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Antegrade percutaneous insertion of a double J seems to be a good alternative when retrograde insertion fails. Malignant ureteral obstruction occurs due to occlusion of the ureter secondary to tumor invasion, extrinsic compression, which prevents intermittent urine flow, leading to acute renal failure, increased morbidity, mortality and interruption of cancer treatment.

Case: A 26-year-old woman with endometrial carcinoma with internal invasion of pelvic structures due to urosepsis and acute renal failure. Read More

Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, 13100Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Endovascular treatment (EVT) using the common femoral artery (CFA) for access after endarterectomy (EA) may result in sheath insertion difficulties because of subcutaneous scar tissue, as well as difficulties with hemostasis. We evaluated the safety of CFA access and the ease of sheath insertion over time after EA. We included 19 patients (21 limbs, 40 cases) in whom the CFA was used after EA with autologous repair as an access route in EVT for peripheral arterial disease in our institution from January 2013 to December 2020.
