Logistic Multiple Regression Analysis of CT Image Evaluation of Wrist Arthroscopy-assist ed Small Incision Treatment on Postoperative Healing and Wrist Function of Patients with Distal Radius Fractures
1.1. Objective: To assess the postoperative healing of patients with distal radius fractures treated with wrist arthroscopy-assisted small incision and its effect on wrist function using CT images combined with Logistic multiple regression analysis. 1.2. Methods: 166 patients with distal radius fracture were ran domly divided into control group (open reduction and internal fixation) and study group (wrist arthroscopy-assisted small inci sion treatment), with 83 cases for each group. All patients under went postoperative CT examination, Logistic multiple regression analysis was used to assess the recovery of wrist function, and the postoperative healing of the two groups was also assessed and compared. 1.3. Results: The operation time of the study group was longer than that of the control group, and the intraoperative blood loss and hospitalization time were less than those of the control group (P < 0.05); the fracture wound healing time in study group was shorter than that in control group, and disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand (DASH) score at 3 and 6 months after operation in study group was lower than that in control group (P < 0.05); the pain se verity, psychological status, independent ability, and life comfort score at 1, 3, and 6 months after operation in both groups were higher than those before treatment, and the score in study group was higher than that in control group (P < 0.05); CT image found that the palmar inclination angle and ulnar deviation angle in study group were greater than those in control group (P < 0.05). Logistic multiple regression analysis showed that operation time and blood loss could be used as independent factors affecting postoperative fracture healing and wrist joint function recovery in both groups (P
Comparison of Functional Outcomes of above Elbow Backslab Versus Close Reduction and Percutaneous Pinning in Supracondylar Humerus Fracture in Kids
Closed reduction and percutaneous pinning under image intensifi er is now the treatment of choice for most of the displaced supra condylar fractures of the humerus in children. 1.1. Objective: To compare the functional outcomes of above el bow backslab versus close reduction and percutaneous pinning in supracondylar humerus fracture in kids. 1.2. Materials And Methods: This Randomized Controlled Trial was conducted in the Department of Orthopedics, Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar Pakistan from October 2022 to April 2023 on sixty patients (30 patients with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning = Group A, 30 patients with closed reduction and back slab= Group). Non – Probability Consecutive Sampling Technique was used. Patient age 5 to 14 years, Both genders and Patients pre senting within 48 hours after trauma with Gartland III supracondy lar humerus fracture as per operational definition were included in the study while Patients with open fracture, Patients with vascular injury and Patients with multiple humerus fractures were excluded from the study. 1.3. Results: Age of the patients ranged from 5 to 14 years. Mean age of the patients who received CRPP was 10.04±2.014 years while mean age of the patients who received Backslab was 11.04±1.323 years. Excellent outcomes were observed in 19 pa tients (63.3%) in CRPP group versus 17 patients (56.7%) in back slab group. 1.4. Conclusion: In pediatric patients presenting with type II and III supracondylar fractures, when compared to backslab, CRPP was associated with higher overall satisfactory results according to Flynn’s criteria.
Correlation of IL-6 and C-reactive protein levels with the stage, differentiation and types of colorectal cancer-A cross sectional study
Interleukin-6(IL-6) and CRP have been involved in anti-inflam matory reaction and autoimmune diseases. Interleukin is known for enabling cancer growth and is essential for tumour-directed immune response. CRP modulates inflammatory responses and stimulate platelet and leukocyte responses associated with acute phase responses to tumour growth. Its accumulation in blood is as sociated with a low-level inflammatory response and is indicative of advancing disease, as occurs in cancer
Sinonasal lymphoepithelial carcinoma (SLEC) is an extremely rare malignant tumor of the sinonasal tract. In this case report, we present a case with locally advanced disease of the posterior ethmoid cells. We also aim to review the clinical, radiological and pathological features, as well as the available treatment strategies, contributing to the literature of this rare malignancy. Our patient presented with unilateral nasal congestion, discharge, recurrent epistaxis, aural fullness, diplopia and visual disturbance. Imaging revealed an extensive osteolytic lesion of the right nasal cavity with intraorbital and intracranial invasion. Histopatholog ical examination of posterior ethmoid cell mucosa demonstrated undifferentiated malignant cells, associated with lymphoplasma cytic infiltration, while the immunohistochemistry was positive for pancytokeratin. A final diagnosis of EBV-positive SLEC was rendered and the patient was treated with concomitant chemo-ra diotherapy. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of SLEC arising from the posterior ethmoid cells with invasion into the orbit and middle cranial fossa.
As stated in the current World Health Organization classification, T-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma is a neoplasm of lympho blasts committed to T-cell lineage involving bone marrow (BM), blood, or presenting as a tissue-based mass involving the thymus, lymph nodes, or extranodal sites. We present a 10 -year -old boy who is a family -burdened mucoviscidosis. Imaging studies report an extended anterior mediastinum. After the first biopsy, the final diagnosis is difficult, which significantly slows down the neces sary treatment. Prolonged treatment with corticosteroids and a heterozygous family-burdened mucoviscidosis is the cause of se vere chemotoxicity after one course of chemotherapy. This is the reason for the completion of treatment by consolidating involved site radiоtherapy. The primary thymic Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a rare disease. Diagnosis is extremely difficult and requires a biopsy of the tu mor and bone marrow, strictly pathohistological and immunohis tochemical analysis, as well as imaging studies involving CT and PET/CT. The clinical case focuses on the difficult final diagnosis, as well as the need for consolidating involved site radiotherapy of mediastinal tumor mass with a radical dose with strictly preserving the adjacent normal tissues and organs.
