Analysis of Self-Inflicted Lacerations to the Wrist: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Treating.

Conclusions: In order to minimize catastrophic disability and repeated suicide attempts, a balanced multidisciplinary approach is one of the best methods to obtain excellent functional outcomes and prevent repeated injuries in patients with self-inflicted wrist lacerations.

A case of total scaphoid titanium custom-made 3D-printed prostheses with one-year follow-up.

Authors: Rossello MI
Abstract
A 34-year-old male patient developed scaphoid nonunion with necrosis in both fragments. A scaphoid replacement was performed using a titanium custom-made 3D-printed implant. At 1-year follow-up, good clinical and radiographic outcome was obtained. Titanium custom-made 3D-printed implants may offer a good surgical solution for patients requiring total scaphoid replacement.

Efficacy Comparison of Hyaluronic Acid and Corticosteroid Injection in Treatment of Trigger Digits: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Conclusions: HA and CS injection has a comparable therapeutic effect in treatment of trigger digits. However, CS injection has higher efficacy of pain and inflammation reduction in the early phase of the disease.

Thumb Ulnar Collateral Ligament Repair with Suture Tape Augmentation.

Conclusions: Thumb UCL repair with suture tape augmentation demonstrates short-term outcomes comparable to what has been reported for other methods of repair. It may potentially allow for an expedited recovery and rehabilitation process.

An Unusual Case of Aneurysmal Bone Cyst of Proximal Phalanx in a 2 Year Old Child.

We report a case of aneurysmal bone cyst of proximal phalanx of middle finger in a 2 year old child treated at our tertiary care hospital. The diagnosis was confirmed with pre-operative MRI, FNAC and post-operative histopathology. Curettage of the lesion and autologous bone grafting was performed. The hand was immobilized in a short below elbow slab for 4 weeks followed by physiotherapy. Excellent radiological and functional outcomes were obtained with no recurrence at a 5 year of follow up.

Use of Distal Hypothenar Perforator Free Flaps for Pulp Defects.

Conclusions: We consider that a distal hypothenar perforator free flap has a high degree of usability for a medium-sized defect such as the whole finger pulp. In the future, whether sensory nerve branches of this flap should be sutured will need to be clarified.

Osteosynthesis of Postosteomyelitic Forearm Defects in Children Using a Modified Bone Grafting Technique: The Fibular Intramedullary Bridging Bone and Additional Grafting (FIBBAG).

Conclusions: Fibular strut and additional bone grafting (FIBBAG) is one of the viable options for reconstruction of post osteomyelitic forearm defects in children with low procedural complication rate.

Use of the Bridge Plate Technique for the Treatment of Hamatometacarpal Fracture-Dislocations.

Conclusions: The use of the bridge plate technique may be an effective alternative treatment for patients with comminuted hamatometacarpal fracture-dislocations.

Unidirectional Porous β-Tricalcium Phosphate: A New Bone Filling Substitute for Treatment of Distal Radius Fracture in the Elderly Population.

Conclusions: Block UDPTCP is a safe and convenient material for the treatment of distal radius fracture and is replaced within a suitable time period after grafting into the fracture site. UDPTCP and stable internal fixation is therefore a reliable strategy for restoring and preserving anatomical position, especially in the elderly population.
