[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSE: This study examined the influence of triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) deep fiber tears on wrist proprioception. METHODS: The study involved 48 subjects: 24 with deep fiber TFCC tears and 24 with healthy wrists. A specially created sensor measured wrist proprioception in 3 axes of movement. Absolute differences between target and subject-reproduced angles were compared in injured and healthy wrists and in injured and contralateral patient wrists. A greater difference in reproduced angles was deemed to reflect a lesser ability to approximate a target angle. RESULTS: In wrists with TFCC injuries, 40° pronation and 60° pronation showed significantly greater differences between target and subject-reproduced angles compared with those in the control wrists. In wrists with TFCC injuries, 40° pronation demonstrated significantly greater differences between target and subject-reproduced angles than did those in patients' contralateral wrists. Proportions of outliers with absolute differences greater than 6° were significantly higher in 60° supination and 40° pronation in wrists with TFCC injuries. CONCLUSIONS: Deep TFCC fiber detachment may lead to decreased wrist proprioception in 60° and 40° forearm rotation. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Deep TFCC fiber tear may contribute to decreased wrist rotational positioning sense and may have biomechanical importance in distal radioulnar joint stability.

[Ab] Abstract:Forearm fractures are common in all age groups. Even if the adjacent joints are not directly involved, these fractures have an intra-articular character. One of the most common complications of these injuries is a painful limitation of the range of motion and especially of pronation and supination. This is often due to an underdiagnosed torsional deformity; however, in recent years new methods have been developed to make these torsional differences visible and quantifiable through the use of sectional imaging. The principle of measurement corresponds to that of the torsion measurement of the lower limbs. Computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are created at defined heights. By searching for certain landmarks, torsional angles are measured in relation to a defined reference line. A new alternative is the use of 3D reformation models. The presence of a torsional deformity, especial of the radius, leads to an impairment of the pronation and supination of the forearm. In the presence of torsional deformities, radiological measurements can help to decide if an operation is needed or not. Unlike the lower limbs, there are still no uniform cut-off values as to when a correction is indicated. Decisions must be made together with the patient by taking the clinical and radiological results into account.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to report our long-term outcomes following reconstruction of the forearm interosseous membrane (IOM) with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) graft for treatment of chronic Essex-Lopresti injuries. METHODS: We identified 33 patients who underwent IOM reconstruction with BPTB graft for chronic Essex-Lopresti injuries over a 20-year treatment interval. Twenty male and 13 female patients, with a mean age of 42.1 years (range, 19 to 73 years) and a minimum follow-up interval of 5 years, were included. Preinjury clinical examination and radiographic measurements were obtained from records for comparison with prospectively collected data. Additional functional outcome data collected postoperatively included QuickDASH (an abbreviated version of the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand [DASH]), modified Mayo wrist (MMW), and Broberg-Morrey elbow function scores. RESULTS: IOM reconstruction was performed at a mean interval (and standard deviation) of 44.9 ± 60.0 months (range, 6.4 to 208 months) from the time of the initial injury. At a mean follow-up of 10.9 ± 4.4 years (range, 5.5 to 24.2 years), significant improvements were observed in mean elbow flexion-extension arc (+13° [95% confidence interval (CI), 4° to 22°]; p = 0.005), wrist flexion-extension arc (+19° [95% CI, 4° to 34°]; p = 0.016), forearm pronation-supination (+23° [95% CI, 8° to 39°]; p = 0.004), and grip strength (+25% of that of the contralateral side [95% CI, 18% to 32% of contralateral side]; p < 0.001). Improvements in ulnar variance were sustained over the long term from +3.9 mm (95% CI, 3.2 to 4.6 mm) preoperatively to -1.6 mm (95% CI, -2.3 to -0.9 mm) immediately postoperatively and -1.1 mm (95% CI, -1.8 to -0.4 mm) at the time of the final follow-up (p < 0.001). The mean QuickDASH, MMW, and Broberg-Morrey scores were 29.8 (range, 5 to 61), 82.7 (range, 60 to 100), and 91.6 (range, 64 to 100), respectively. CONCLUSIONS: IOM reconstruction with a BPTB graft is an effective treatment option for chronic Essex-Lopresti injuries, with satisfactory clinical and functional outcomes over the long term. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic Level IV. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Lack of awareness and recognition of child maltreatment is the major reason behind underreporting. All victims often interact with the health care system for routine or emergency care. In several research works, non-accidental fractures are the second most common injury in maltreated children and it is represented up to one-third of cases. AIM OF THE STUDY: To determine the incidence of different types of accidental and non-accidental skeletal injuries among children, estimate the severity of injuries according to the modified injury severity score and to determine the degree of fractures either closed or opened (Gustiloe-Anderson open fracture classification). Moreover, identifying fractures resulting from child abuse and neglect. This aimed for early recognition of non-accidental nature of fractures in child maltreatment that can prevent further morbidity and mortality. PATIENTS AND METHOD: A descriptive study was carried out on all children (109) with skeletal injuries who were admitted to both Main Alexandria and El-Hadara Orthopedic and Traumatology University Hospitals during six months. History, physical examination and investigations were done for the patients. A detailed questionnaire was taken to diagnose child abuse and neglect. Gustiloe-Anderson open fracture classification was used to estimate the degree of open fractures. RESULTS: Out of 109 children, twelve cases (11%) were categorized as child maltreatment. One case was physical abuse, eight cases (7.3%) were child neglect and three cases (2.8%) were labour exploitation. Road traffic accidents (RTA) was the commonest cause of skeletal injuries followed by falling from height. Regarding falls, they included 4 cases of stair falls in neglected children and another four cases of falling from height (balcony/window). The remaining 36 cases of falls were accidental. The skeletal injuries were in the form of fractures in 99 cases, dislocation in two cases, both fracture and/or dislocation in three cases, and bone deformity from brachial plexus injury in five cases. Fractures of the lower limb (42.2%) and both bones of the forearm (35%) represented the highest incidence of skeletal injuries in children. 54.5% of fractures due to neglect were lower limb fractures due to falling from height. Ninety-nine cases were diagnosed as long bone fractures and classified as the following; eighty patients as closed fractures, six patients as open grade I fractures, three patients as open grade II fractures, three patients as open grade IIIA fractures, four patients as open grade IIIB fractures and three patients as open grade IIIC fractures. CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION: Cases of neglect and child abuse represented 11% of all the studied cases, where neglect was the main cause. RTA and falling from height represented the most common cause of skeletal injury in children. Most fractures due to neglect were lower limb fractures resulting from falling from height. This demonstrates the need for early detection of neglect and child maltreatment aiming for early initiation of parental educational programs about child care and safety. Misinterpretation of skeletal injuries due to neglect or abuse can be avoided by proper training of orthopedic and traumatology staff on signs of child neglect and abuse.

[Ab] Abstract:Motocross is a popular sport in which participants ride a two-wheeled, motorized vehicle on an uneven 2-km track with natural or human-made obstacles. Participants compete at high rates of speed, and children as young as age 4 years compete in age-appropriate groups. Motocross is recognized as a strenuous sport with a high accident rate. Most injuries are musculoskeletal in nature. The most commonly injured areas are the forearm, clavicle, femur, and tibia. Many injuries require surgical treatment. Some patients sustain head trauma with loss of consciousness. Children should have age-appropriate training before participation is allowed. Adult supervision should occur at all times. Appropriate helmet fitting with assistance from an expert is associated with a decreased risk of concussion symptoms. Parents and coaches need to weigh the benefits of participation with the frequency of injuries, missed academic time, and the cost of medical treatment.

[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSE: Bear maul injuries are the most common wild animal inflicted injuries in India. More than 300 bear maul injuries report to our hospital per year. METHODS: Twenty-one consecutive patients over a period of 1 year reported to our department for orthopaedic management of bear maul injuries. All the patients were referred either from peripheral hospitals or from other surgical departments of our hospital. RESULTS: All the patients had facial/scalp injuries of variable severity. In all the patients the severity of limb and facial trauma was inversely proportional to each other. Pattern of upper limb trauma in most of the patients was similar. Fifteen patients had either fractures of distal humerus or mid shaft/proximal forearm bone fracture. Two had distal forearm bone fracture, 2 had carpal/metacarpal fractures and 1 had clavicle fracture. Only 1 had lower limb fracture. Thirteen out of 21 patients had associated neurovascular injury of the involved limb. The characteristic feature was extensive soft tissue involvement of the affected limb. CONCLUSION: Upper limb injuries in bear maul patients usually have similar pattern. The severity of upper limb and facial/scalp trauma is inversely proportional to each other. Multistage orthopaedic surgeries are needed for such complex limb injuries.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Vascular trauma data have been submitted to the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma PROspective Observational Vascular Injury Trial (PROOVIT) database since 2013. We present data to describe current use of endovascular surgery in vascular trauma. METHODS: Registry data from March 2013 to December 2016 were reviewed. All trauma patients who had an injury to a named artery, except the forearm and lower leg, were included. Arteries were grouped into anatomic regions and by compressible and noncompressible region for analysis. This review focused on patients with noncompressible transection, partial transection, or flow-limiting defect injuries. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were used to assess the relationships between study variables. RESULTS: One thousand one hundred forty-three patients from 22 institutions were included. Median age was 32 years (interquartile range, 23-48) and 76% (n = 871) were male. Mechanisms of injury were 49% (n = 561) blunt, 41% (n = 464) penetrating, and 1.8% (n = 21) of mixed aetiology. Gunshot wounds accounted for 73% (n = 341) of all penetrating injuries. Endovascular techniques were used least often in limb trauma and most commonly in patients with blunt injuries to more than one region. Penetrating wounds to any region were preferentially treated with open surgery (74%, n = 341/459). The most common indication for endovascular treatment was blunt noncompressible torso injuries. These patients had higher Injury Severity Scores and longer associated hospital stays, but required less packed red blood cells, and had lower in hospital mortality than those treated with open surgery. On multivariate analysis, admission low hemoglobin concentration and abdominal injury were independent predictors of mortality. CONCLUSION: Our review of PROOVIT registry data demonstrates a high utilization of endovascular therapy among severely injured blunt trauma patients primarily with noncompressible torso hemorrhage. This is associated with a decreased need for blood transfusion and improved survival despite longer length of stay. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic/care management, level III.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVE: To explore the clinical outcomes of internal fixation or replacement for the treatment of radial head fractures through the extensor digitorum communis splitting approach. METHODS: From July 2012 to May 2015, 25 patients with radial head fractures were reviewed. There were 17 males and 8 females, ranging in age from 20 to 67 years old, with a mean age of 39 years old. Twenty-one patients were treated with reconstruction of plate internal fixation, and 4 patients were treated with radial head replacement. According to Mason classification, 19 cases were type II and 6 cases were type III. All the patients underwent internal fixation or replacement through the extensor digitorum communis splitting approach. The patients were followed up clinically and radiographically until the beginning of fracture union and the entrance of function recovery of elbow motion into a plateau. The functional status of the elbow was evaluated using the Mayo Elbow Performance Index(MEPI). Radiographic signs of post-traumatic arthritis were rated according to the Broberg and Morrey system. RESULTS: All the patients were followed up, and the average duration was 29 months (ranged, 12 to 56 months). The average range of flexion and extension was 120°, the extension was limited by 10°, and the flexion was 135°. The average forearm rotation range was 142°, pronation was 75°, supination was 67°. The mean MEPI was 93±7(ranged, 80 to 100 scores); according to the MEPI scoring criceria, 19 patients got an excellent functional result, 6 good. According to the Broberg and Morrey systems of traumatic arthritis, 19 patients were in grade 0, 6 in grade 1, and no patients in grade 2 or 3. No patients with nonunion of the radial head and failure of internal fixation were found. There were no complications of nerve or vascular injuries, and obvious limitation of elbow rotation. Heterotopic ossification around the elbow occurred in 4 cases, but the motion was not significantly limited. There were no complications such as prosthesis loosening and infection in 4 cases after radial head prosthesis replacement. CONCLUSIONS: The extensor digitorum communis splitting approach is an effective exposure method for internal fixation or replacement in the treatment of radial head fractures.

[Ab] Abstract:One-third of community-dwelling people older than 65 years of age fall each year, and half of them fall at least twice a year. Older care home residents are approximately three times more likely to fall when compared to community-dwelling older people. Risk indicators for falls are related to the older people's body, environment, behavior, and activities. An important health risk indicator is (orthostatic or postprandial) hypotension, which may induce cerebral hypoperfusion. Although the majority of falls remain without major consequences, 10% to 25% of falls in care homes result in bodily trauma. Prevalent fall-related injuries are brain injury, lower extremity fracture including hip fracture and forearm/wrist fracture, facial fracture, humeral fracture, and rib/scapular fracture. As fall accidents by older people can have severe consequences, prevention of falls is of paramount importance. Healthcare providers, including oral healthcare providers, should inform older people on risks of falling and draw attention to potentially hazardous arrangements.

[Ab] Abstract:Partial tears of the distal biceps brachii tendon are rare. A complete tear of the distal biceps brachii tendon is readily diagnosed on the basis of history and physical examination and has a well-described clinical presentation of acute pain in the antecubital fossa, localized tenderness, swelling, palpable defect, positive hook test, and weakness in forearm supination and elbow flexion. Partial tears, on the other hand, can present more subtly and remain a diagnostic challenge. We present a novel physical examination technique that utilizes the rotational anatomy of the radius. The patient's forearm is passively supinated and pronated with the elbow flexed to 90° while the examiner firmly palpates the dorsal forearm overlying the radial tuberosity. The tuberosity presents itself beneath the examining fingers only in full forearm pronation. A positive test is indicated by tenderness over the radial (or lateral) aspect of the tuberosity (TILT sign) only in full forearm pronation, and not in supination. We have found this diagnostic test to be 100% sensitive for diagnosing partial distal biceps brachii tendon tears over the last five years during which it has been in use. Representative example cases are presented. A positive TILT sign indicates a diagnosis of partial tear of the distal biceps brachii tendon. This simple diagnostic maneuver could facilitate earlier detection of these injuries. Clin. Anat. 31:301-303, 2018. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
