A New External Upper Airway Opening Device Combined With a Cervical Collar

Abstract Airway problems are the main cause of mortality in otherwise survivable trauma injuries. We developed a novel external airway protector in combination with a cervical collar. The new device simultaneously opens the airway and protects the cervical spine. Materials and methods: The device called the 'Lubo Collar' has a chin holder that can be attached …

Importance of the dome and posterior wall as evidenced by bone density mapping in the acetabulum

Background Characterizing the distribution of bone density in the acetabulum is of importance in better understanding and guiding treatment for both osteoarthritis and trauma of the hip joint. This study aims to develop a highly automated method to quantify the pattern of subchondral bone density in the acetabulum using clinically identifiable regions. Methods Subchondral acetabular …

Acetabular Cup Orientation and Postoperative Leg Length Discrepancy in Patients Undergoing Elective Total Hip Arthroplasty via a Direct Anterior and Anterolateral Approaches

Abstract Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is considered a successful surgical procedure. It can be performed by several surgical approaches. Although the posterior and anterolateral approaches are the most common, there has been increased interest in the direct anterior approach. The goal of the present study is to compare postoperative leg length discrepancy and acetabular cup …

A novel self‐care biomechanical treatment for obese patients with knee osteoarthritis

Abstract   Aim: To examine the effect of a novel biomechanical, home-based, gait training device on gait patterns of obese individuals with knee OA. Methods: This was a retrospective analysis of 105 (32 males, 73 females) obese (body mass index > 30 kg/m2 ) subjects with knee OA who completed a 12-month program using a biomechanical gait training …

Early diagnosis of occult hip fractures: MRI versus CT scan

Objective: We compared Computerised Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in diagnosis of a painful hip in elderly patients after trauma. We report on accuracy, efficiency and benefits. Design: We assessed 13 patients, average age 73 years, after fall with plain X-rays showing no evidence of fracture. There were two groups: Group A (six patients) underwent CT and MRI; …
