Ultrasonography-guided reduction of pediatric radial neck fractures

Jung Eun Lee, Jung Bong Kim, Eun Seok Choi
2017 BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders  
Treatment of displaced and angulated radial neck fractures in children is controversial and challenging. Numerous studies have been conducted regarding treatment algorithms and surgical techniques that use fluoroscopy. However, ultrasonography (US)-guided reduction of pediatric radial neck fractures has not been reported yet. We aimed to determine the safety and efficacy of US-guided reduction and fixation of radial neck fractures in children. Methods: Among 28 cases of radial neck fracture

All 12 patients underwent US-guided reduction and percutaneous fixation with Kirschner wire and follow-up for more than 6 months. US was used primarily to monitor the angulation and reduction of the radial neck. Fluoroscopy was applied to confirm the fixation with Kirschner wire. Dose area product (DAP; mGy/cm 2 ) was measured to assess per-procedure radiation dose. Radiological and clinical results were evaluated at 6 months after the surgery by using the Metaizeau criteria. Results: Of the patients, 4 were boys and 8 were girls, with a mean age of 7.7 years (range, 5-11 years). Judet type III fractures accounted for 83% of all injuries. The mean preoperative radial angulation was 62.5°(range: 46°-76°). The mean postoperative radial angulation was 5.6°(range: 2°-9°). The mean fluoroscopy time was 31 s (range: 10-73 s), and the mean DAP was 10.7 mGy/cm 2 (range: 7.2-18.7 mGy/cm 2 ). The mean follow-up period was 18.3 months (range, 8-24 months). According to the Metaizeau criteria, 10 cases were excellent and 2 cases were good at the last follow-up. Conclusions: US-guided reduction and percutaneous fixation is safe and reliable option to treat displaced radial neck fractures in children.

Eun Mi Choi, Mi Hwa Chung, Joo Hyun Jun, Eun Hee Chun, In-Jung Jun, Jong Hee Park, Eun-ha Choi, Jung Eun Kim
2020 International Journal of Medical Sciences  
Herpes zoster develops when latent varicella zoster virus is reactivated in the trigeminal or dorsal root ganglions. Zoster-associated pain (ZAP) is neuropathic pain caused by the herpes zoster virus. Histological studies of postherpetic neuralgia patients suggest that inflammation is involved in ZAP. The effectiveness of local anesthetic and steroid epidural injections in ZAP patients has been reported. However, most studies included patients with acute herpes zoster, and the safety and

In this study, we randomly assigned 42 patients with severe ZAP beyond the acute phase, as determined by a numeric rating scale (NRS) score ≥7, to receive continuous epidural infusion of local anesthetics with either a one-time 5-mg dose or intermittent repeated doses (15 mg total) of dexamethasone. We found that intermittent repeated epidural dexamethasone bolus resulted in reduced NRS scores and an increased likelihood of complete remission in ZAP patients without any adverse effects. Thus, our results suggest that intermittent repeated epidural dexamethasone administration is safe and effective for treatment of ZAP beyond the acute phase.

Renal biopsy findings indicated minimal change disease spectrum without eosinophilic infiltration. The oral deflazacort dosage was increased, and the patient was discharged after abdominal pain resolved. To our knowledge, this is the first report of eosinophilic gastroenteritis in a patient with minimal change disease.

2007 The Korean Journal of Internal Medicine  
Inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) have been approved for treating rheumatoid arthritis. As one of the biological response modifiers, etanercept has also been used in the treatment of psoriatic arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. While etanercept is effective, certain infectious complications, such as tuberculosis, fungus, and cytomegalovirus, have been reported.

2021 BMC Pediatrics  
Background Several studies have suggested that adverse neurodevelopment could be induced by systemic inflammation in preterm infants. We aimed to investigate whether preterm infants with systemic inflammation would have impaired neurodevelopment and which biomarkers and neurophysiologic studies during inflammation are associated with poor neurodevelopment. Methods This prospective cohort study enrolled infants born before 30 weeks of gestation or with birth weight < 1250 g. Infants were grouped
more » ... according to the presence of systemic inflammation: Control (no inflammation, n = 49), I (systemic inflammation, n = 45). Blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples for markers of brain injury and inflammation were collected and amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) was performed within 4 h of septic workup. We evaluated aEEG at 35 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA), head circumference at 36 weeks PMA, and brain MRI at discharge. The Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development III (Bayley-III) was performed at a corrected age (CA) of 18 months. Results The I group had more white matter injuries (2 vs. 26.7%, Control vs. I, respectively) at the time of discharge, lower brain functional maturation (9.5 vs. 8), and smaller head size (z-score − 1.45 vs. -2.12) at near-term age and poorer neurodevelopment at a CA of 18 months than the control (p < 0.05). Among the I group, the proportion of immature neutrophils (I/T ratios) and IL-1 beta levels in the CSF were associated with aEEG measures at the day of symptom onset (D0). Seizure spike on aEEG at D0 was significantly correlated with motor and social-emotional domains of Bayley-III (p < 0.05). The I/T ratio and CRP and TNF-α levels of blood at D0, white matter injury on MRI at discharge, head circumference and seizure spikes on aEEG at near-term age were associated with Bayley-III scores at a CA of 18 months. Conclusions Systemic inflammation induced by clinical infection and NEC are associated with neurodevelopmental impairment in preterm infants. The seizure spike on aEEG, elevated I/T ratio, CRP, and plasma TNF-alpha during inflammatory episodes are associated with poor neurodevelopment.

So, through national undertaking Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (KNHANES), we examined the relationship between sleep duration and BMI, waist circumference, and percent body fat in Korean adults. Methods: From the data of KNHANES in the year of 2008∼2010, over 19 years old 4337 men and 5543 women, relationship between sleep duration and indices of body composition was examined. Anthropometric and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measures of body composition were used. Sleep duration was measured using information obtained from self-reported questionnaires. Results: The study results revealed a negative association between sleep duration and most of body composition variablesbody mass index, waist circumference, truncal fat percentage, muscle mass -and positive association with truncal lean mass percentage. In men, increasing sleep duration 1 hour, prevalence of obesity (BMI≥25 kg/m 2 ) is decreasing (OR=0.89, CI:0.837-0.939), risk of waist circumference over 90 cm is decreasing (OR=0.90, CI:0.851-0.966), truncal fat percentage (OR=0.93, CI:0.869-0.992) and muscle mass (OR=0.89, CI: 0.835-0.949) are also decreasing. Conclusion: Our results are consistent with previous findings that sleep duration is associated with obesity. However, the relationship between sleep duration and body composition may be stronger in men than in women. Short sleep duration was associated with increased truncal fat. And it supports that short sleep duration may increase prevalence of central obesity in Korean men.

2015 OncoTarget  
NKX6.3 transcription factor is known to be an important regulator in gastric mucosal epithelial differentiation. The present study aimed to investigate whether NKX6.3 acts as an essential tumor suppressor in gastric carcinogenesis. Absent or reduced protein expression and decreased DNA copy number and mRNA transcript of the NKX6.3 gene were frequently observed in gastric cancers. Overexpression of NKX6.3 in AGS NKX6.3 and MKN1 NKX6.3 cells markedly arrested cell proliferation by inhibiting cell

In addition, stable NKX6.3 transfectants increased the expression of gastric differentiation markers, including SOX2 and Muc5ac, and decreased the expression of intestinal differentiation markers, CDX2 and Muc2. In ChIP-cloning and sequencing analyses, NKX6.3 coordinated a repertoire of target genes, some of which are clearly associated with cell cycle, differentiation and death. In particular, NKX6.3 transcriptional factor was found to bind specifically to the upstream sequences of GKN1, a gastric-specific tumor suppressor, and dramatically increase expression of the latter. Furthermore, there was a positive correlation between NKX6.3 and GKN1 expression in non-cancerous gastric mucosae. Thus, these data suggest that NKX6.3 may control the fate of gastric mucosal cells and function as a gastric tumor suppressor.

Sella magnetic resonance imaging showed a mass on the pituitary stalk with loss of normal bright spot at the posterior lobe of the pituitary. Multiple patchy infiltrations were detected in both lung fields by computed tomography (CT). He was diagnosed with recurrent LCH and was subsequently treated with inhaled desmopressin, systemic steroids, vinblastine, and mercaptopurine. The pituitary mass disappeared after two months and both lungs were clear on chest CT after 11 months. Although clinical remission in multisystem LCH in adults is reportedly rare, our case of adult-onset multisystem LCH was treated successfully with systemic chemotherapy using prednisolone, vinblastine, and 6-mercaptopurine, which was well tolerated.
