  • Back hand approach to radial access: The snuff box approach. [Case Reports]
    Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2018 Apr - May; 19(3 Pt B):324-326Davies RE, Gilchrist IC
  • Transradial access is becoming the default strategy for routine coronary procedures, but there is still room for improvement. For instance, left radial access is known to offer some advantages for graft cases, less tortuosity, amongst other potential benefits. The downside has been the applicability of this access point on patients with a larger body mass index both from the viewpoint of the pati…
  • StatPearls: Nursemaid Elbow [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Nardi Naomi M. NM Schaefer Timothy J. TJ BOOK
  • Nursemaid's elbow, or "radial head subluxation" is a common injury in young children in which the radial head slips under the annular ligament resulting in pain and inability to supinate the forearm. Diagnosis is usually based on clinical exam and history, and reduction can typically be easily performed in the clinical setting.[1][2][3][4]
  • How well can step-off and gap distances be reduced when treating intra-articular distal radius fractures with fragment specific fixation when using fluoroscopy. [Journal Article]
    Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2016; 102(8):1001-1004Thiart M, Ikram A, Lamberts RP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intra-articular distal radius fractures can be treated successfully with fragment specific fixation and the use of fluoroscopy. As almost all gap and step-off distances could be reduced to an acceptable level, the scope for arthroscopy to further improve this treatment regime is limited. The functional outcome scores that were found 3 months after the surgical intervention were similar to what has been reported in other studies using different treatment option. These findings suggest that fragment specific fixation is a good alternative for treating intra-articular distal radius fractures. As in most cases, only fluoroscopy is needed for fragment specific fixation, this treatment technique is a good treatment option for resource-limited hospitals, setting who do not have access to arthroscopy.
  • Treatment of Clubfoot Using the Ponseti Method. [Journal Article]
    JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2016; 6(3):e28Dietz FR, Noonan K
  • The Ponseti method consists of a specific technique of manipulation of the clubfoot deformity, followed by the application of a plaster cast with the foot in the corrected position. A percutaneous tenotomy of the Achilles tendon is done prior to the final cast to gain complete correction in most patients. Bracing with a foot abduction orthosis is necessary to minimize relapse of the deformity. Th…
  • Anatomic Investigation of Commonly Used Landmarks for Evaluating Rotation During Forearm Fracture Reduction. [Journal Article]
    J Bone Joint Surg Am 2016; 98(13):1103-12Weinberg DS, Park PJ, … Liu RW
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that using the bicipital tuberosity and the radial styloid to assess intraoperative rotation of the radius on anteroposterior radiographs may be of limited value; the landmarks were not generally 180° apart. Although the rotational positions of the coronoid process and the ulnar styloid were, on average, closer to 180°, surgeons should be aware of the wide range of normal anatomy as well as the inability to judge rotation by as much as 60°, even for an "ideal" ulna.This study, to our knowledge, represents the first anatomic investigation of the rotational profiles between the osseous landmarks used to assess forearm rotation after fracture. We recommend that surgeons first image the bicipital tuberosity at its largest profile, supinate the arm 20°, and confirm that the radial styloid is at its largest profile. The ulna can then be assessed to support the lack of rotational deformity in the forearm.
