Decreased physical performance has been associated with an increased risk of falls and fragility hip fractures. The purpose of our study was to... [more]
Parent reports of patient function differed between medical malpractice litigation and non-litigation cohorts, matched on age and injury severity, for children with all types of neonatal brachial plexus palsy (Figs. 1-A, 1-B, and 1-C) and children with specifically upper plexus injuries (Raimondi grade 4 or 5) (Figs. 1-D and 1-E). Error bars indicate the interquartile range.
Fig. 2-A Extended EDC splitting approach performed by detaching the anterior half of the EDC as well as the extensor carpi radialis brevis from the lateral epicondyle (*). The extensor carpi radialis longus and the brachioradialis were also detached from the supracondylar ridge (+). The radial head (r), capitellum (c), and coronoid tip (u) are visualized. Fig. 2-B The blue highlighted area represents the distal humeral exposure obtained. Fig. 2-C The red highlighted area represents the coronoid process exposure obtained. In the present study, the extended modified Kocher approach offered similar visualization of the coronoid process and distal aspect of the humerus.
Number of cast saw injuries by month, 2010 through 2012. The number of injuries per month is represented by the line. The pre-intervention period depicts the spike in injuries observed during October 2009.
Summary of appropriateness ratings.
Percentages of replantations by digit.
The deformity of the distal part of the humerus was evaluated with three-dimensional computer bone models. The proximal site of the affected humerus was superimposed onto the mirror image of the corresponding part on the contralateral, normal side. The deformity of the distal part of the humerus was quantified three-dimensionally.
Comparison of the mean of actual baseline QuickDASH scores and recalled baseline QuickDASH scores for each time point. The three-month time point was the only time point to show a significant difference between actual baseline and recalled baseline QuickDASH scores (p= 0.001).
Technique for carpal wedge osteotomy, showing the anteroposterior (A) and lateral (B) view of the location of the osteotomy and the anteroposterior (C) and lateral (D) view after wedge osteotomy. MC = metacarpal.
A CONSORT flowchart of the trial enrollment and analysis. DVR = Distal Volar Radius (plate), and K-wires = Kirschner wires.
Flow diagram depicting the stages of the double free muscle transfer (FMT) procedure. The numbers in parentheses indicate how many patients underwent each particular procedure. SSN = suprascapular nerve, PN = phrenic nerve, PD = posterior division of upper trunk, ICN = intercostal nerve, PIP = proximal interphalangeal nerve, and DIP = distal interphalangeal nerve.
