Staged Surgical Management of Open Navicular Fracture Secondary to a Gunshot Injury.

Authors: Rahnama-Vaghef A, Husain ZS
Abstract
The management guidelines of gunshot wound (GSW) injuries to the lower extremities have primarily been described more recently in the literature. A navicular fracture with adjacent joint involvement is presented from a GSW with initial external fixation management to prevent loss of anatomic alignment as well as successful staged definitive treatment with internal fixation. Based on previous experiences with rearfoot joint involvement from GSW injuries, we were able to direct definitive treatment with arthrodesis of violated joints. After a one-year follow-up, the patient has returned to normal activities without any limitations. This case report demonstrates a stepwise approach to management of an open navicular fracture secondary to a...

Relationship of dome height of the first metatarsal head with hallux valgus angle and metatarsophalangeal alignment.

CONCLUSIONS: Our study results suggest that HV deformity may be related to an increased dome height and the measurement of the dome height of the first metatarsal head might be used to evaluate an anatomic tendency toward HV development.

Can total joint arthroplasty be safely performed in patients with chronic kidney disease?

CONCLUSIONS: Compared with No-CKD patients, CKD patients demonstrated an increased risk of perioperative and postoperative complications and clear difference about complications between No-CKD and CKD about patients with chronic kidneydisease.

Ensuring Quality Care in the COVID-19 Era: Applying the Donabedian Model to Tertiary Wound Care Center Practices.

Authors: Bekeny JC, Zolper EG, Steinberg JS, Atves JN, Benedict CD, Fan KL, Akbari CM, Attinger CE, Evans KK
Abstract
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted healthcare, with its far-reaching effects seeping into chronic disease evaluation and treatment. Our tertiary wound care center was specially designed to deliver the highest quality care to wounded patients. Pre-pandemic, we were able to ensure rapid treatment via validated protocols delivered by a co-localized multidisciplinary team within the hospital setting. The pandemic has disrupted our model's framework, and we have worked to adapt our workflow without sacrificing quality of care. Using the modified Donabedian model of quality assessment, we present an analysis of pre- and intra-pandemic characteristics of our center. In th...

Plantar Pressure Profiles and Possible Foot Syndromes of the Taiwanese College Elite Basketball Players.

CONCLUSIONS: Elite basketball players' AI values was found to be high arches, and their PPDs tended to parallel the features of the high-arched supinated and dropped cuboid foot. Their pain profiles not only resonated with the common basketball injuries, but also reflected the features of the Jones fracture and cuboid syndrome. The potential links among high-arched supinated foot, Jones fracture and cuboid syndrome are worth further studies.

Does plantar pressure and loading pattern vary with joint hypermobility in young females?

CONCLUSIONS: Plantar pressure and loading pattern varies in young females with joint hypermobility. Evaluation of plantar loading as an injury prevention tool in individuals with joint hypermobility syndrome can be suggested.
