Orthopaedic patients with poor nutritional status are at an increased risk of postoperative complications, such as infection and wound healing. Nasal colonization with Staphylococcus aureus, especially with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, has been shown to be a risk factor for surgical-site infections. We examined the incidence of nutritional depletion in our ...

Purpose. It is somewhat surprising that radiographic criteria for lumbar stenosis have been transposed from radiography and CT to MR without scientific validation. As these radiographic criteria were developed via population studies with criteria defined by two standard deviations from the mean, we sought to perform the same methodology via ...

Pedicle screws (PS) can provide initial stabilization of anterior interbody femoral ring allograft (FRA) lumbar constructs. Translaminar screws (TLS) have also been advocated for this procedure. The objective of this study was to use an in vitro human cadaveric model to compare the stability of one-level anterior interbody lumbar constructs ...

Hip resurfacing arthroplasty has been developed as an alternative to traditional total hip arthroplasty, in an effort to minimize the loss of native bone in young patients with symptomatic hip osteoarthritis. Femoral neck fracture following hip resurfacing is a unique complication; several risk factors are associated with this complication, including ...

A fracture construct, representing a worst-case model of a comminuted intertrochanteric fracture, was created in order to compare the fixation stability of two different cephalomedullary nails: one where the lag screw can telescope within itself to achieve displacement of the head-neck fragment, and the other where the solid lag screw ...

Soft tissue balancing during total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has a direct affect on patello-femoral tracking and knee range of motion, which are necessary for a well functioning TKA postoperatively. We report on the use of an electronic pressure sensing instrument for soft tissue balancing of the knee before completion of ...

BACKGROUND: Solitary bone cysts (SBC) are uncommon non-neoplastic bone lesions, which present mainly in the mandible. Their aetiology is still obscure, but it has been suggested that they may be a result of trauma in the region. Due to their asymptomatic nature, SBCs are revealed mainly accidentally during routine radiographic ...

BACKGROUND: Toothbrush injuries are common in children, and those of impalement and embedded injuries are the more serious. CASE REPORT: A five-year-old girl presented with a complaint of a swelling affecting the left side of her face and with difficulty in opening her mouth for the previous 15 days. She ...

AIM: To evaluate the prevalence and aetiology of dental erosion in Greek minority school children living in Istanbul (Turkey). METHODS: The present study was initiated in four Greek minority elementary schools in Istanbul where a total of 83 children (46 girls, 37 boys) between ages 7-14 years old were examined. ...

AIM: This was to characterise the microbial diversity in the complex dental plaque of children with severe early-childhood caries (S-ECC), using the denaturing gel gradient electrophoresis (DGGE) technique. METHODS: The DGGE technique was used as a diagnostic tool to analyse samples from the oral cavity of a patient with S-ECC. ...

AIM: To describe the dental health status of 6-year-old children using the ICDAS-II advanced method and to evaluate the association between the known caries risk factors with the cavitated caries lesion (WHO basic method) or with both non-cavitated and cavitated caries lesion caries (ICDAS II). METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, ...

AIM: To investigate feeding practices in infants born with a cleft lip and/or palate (CLP) in the West of Scotland and the challenges that the parents of these children experienced especially in the first hours and months after birth. METHODS: A questionnaire involving a 'face-to-face' interview was completed with parents ...

AIM: To compare the antimicrobial efficiency of chlorhexidine and cacao bean husk extract mouthrinses in children. STUDY DESIGN: A randomised comparative study which employed purpose sampling. METHODS: Study was conducted on 50 children of both sexes aged 6-10 years old. A group of 25 children were given 10 ml of ...

AIM: To determine the possible correlation between otitis media and dental malocclusion in children. METHODS: Fifty subjects (26 males and 24 females; mean age: 7.8 [+ or -] 1 years) were assessed: 25 patients, with otitis media formed the study group, while 25 healthy subjects formed the control group. An ...

AIM: To investigate any association between dental erosion and its potential dietary risk factors in a group of schoolchildren in Benghazi, Libya. STUDY DESIGN: A cross-sectional observational study. METHODS: A random sample of 12-year-old schoolchildren in 36 randomly selected schools completed a questionnaire to provide dietary data and underwent dental ...
