Die Radiusfraktur als unerkannte Erstmanifestation der Osteoporose
Seibert FJ,Giessau C,Sagmeister-Skrabal E,Sampl E
Journal für Mineralstoffwechsel , 2012,
Abstract: Die Radiusfraktur loco typico ist die h ufigste Fraktur, welche einer unfallchirurgischen Betreuung bedarf. Die Osteoporose des lteren Patienten mit der Zunahme der lteren Bev lkerungsgruppe wird in Zukunft die osteoporoseinduzierten Frakturen (Wirbels ule, Becken, Oberarm usw.) an Zahl deutlich ansteigen lassen und die medizinischen und pflegerischen Kosten erheblich steigern. Da der zweite Altersgipfel der Speichenfrakturen bei etwa 50 Jahren und somit deutlich vor Frakturen anderer Regionen zu finden ist, liegt es auf der Hand, Patienten mit Radiusfraktur nach Low-Energy-Trauma verd chtig auf Fragility Fracture frühzeitig einer Abkl rung und wenn n tig Therapie eines gest rten Mineralstoffwechsels zuzuführen. Die Bedeutung eines Fracture- Liaison-Dienstes wird ebenso diskutiert. Das Bewusstsein gegenüber m glicher Osteoporose und die Einleitung zu einem Sturzpr ventionstraining k nnten der Schlüssel zu einer m glichen Senkung der unfallchirurgischen Kosten in der Zukunft sein.

Utility of “loco-check,” self-checklist for “locomotive syndrome” as a tool for estimating the physical dysfunction of elderly people  [PDF]

Aim: A new concept of locomotive syndrome has been proposed by the Japanese Orthopaedic Association. The aim of this study is to clarify the utility of its self-checklist, “loco-check,” as a tool for estimating the physical dysfunction of elderly people. Methods: Subjects were 1124 community-dwelling Japanese people, 557 men and 567 women, aged 40-89 years. Information about the seven “loco-check” items was obtained from present inquiry sheets. Physical functions were examined by grip strength, knee extension strength, walking speed and one-leg standing time with open eyes. The averages of these test values, controlled for age and BMI, were compared between the “loco-check” (+) group and the “loco-check” (-) group. Also we examined about the trend of decline of physical function, together with SF36 physical function subscale score, as the number of the items chosen increased. Results: Adjusted average values of all four physical function examinations in the “lococheck” (+) group were significantly lower than those of the “loco-check” (-) group (all, p < 0.001). Also the adjusted average values of the majority of four tests were

Breast cancer in males: A PGIMER experience
Rai Bhavana,Ghoshal Sushmita,Sharma Suresh
Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics , 2005,
Abstract: Aim: Male breast cancer is a rare disease representing 1% of all breast cancers and less than 1% of all cancers in men. Because of its rarity, carcinoma breast has not been studied extensively and this prompted us to carry out this retrospective study. The aim of the study was to observe the clinical and pathological features, evaluate the prognostic factors and to co-relate the outcome in patients of male breast cancer. Materials and Methods : Thirty patients of male breast cancer treated in the department of radiotherapy from year 1996-2000 were retrospectively analyzed. Results: The actuarial five- year disease free survival was 40%. Three out of 30 i.e. 10% patients had loco-regional recurrence and all of them had locally advanced disease at presentation. Distant metastasis occurred in 9 patients of whom 6 patients had T3-T4 tumor and 1 patient had T1-T2 tumor. Conclusion: Modified radical mastectomy followed by external radiation therapy is the standard treatment for male breast cancer. Hormone therapy, as an adjuvant treatment, is the first line approach in a majority of patients and chemotherapy is reserved for patients with poor prognostic factors.

Objective: Major international guidelines have not standardized the sequence of diagnostic examinations during the follow-up of a patient with a diagnosed breast cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate the accuracy of sonography in the diagnosis of loco-regional lymphatic recurrences in comparison to the core needle biopsy results. Materials and Methods: Among 6455 patients who were followed up with clinical examination, mammography and ultrasound between January 2004 and November 2011, 125 (1.93%) patients had to be investigated with a core needle biopsy of a sonographically suspicious loco-regional lymph node. Results: Among the whole series, a total of 142 ultrasound-guided core needle biopsies were performed. Follow-up for the primary tumor lasted for a median time of 6.1 years (range 1 - 27 years). Ultrasound of suspicious loco-regional lymph nodes showed a sensitivity of 89.5%, a specificity of 87.1% and a positive predictive value of 89.5%. Conclusions: In our experience, ultrasound of suspicious loco-regional lymph nodes showed good accuracy and it should be a part of the standard examinations performed during follow-up for breast cancer.

Abstract: the economic performance of benthic resource management areas (brma's) was assessed and analyzed for the bio-bio region between 2001 and 2003. this study included 22 areas with use agreements declaring toco' (concholepas concholepas) to be the main benthic resource. several characteristics were also considered as potential determinant factors for brma performance. these variables were defined and grouped into four types of characteristics: economic, environmental-biological, institutional-organizational, and organizational leader. the variables were then contrasted between areas according to the loco harvest situation. moreover, the economic performance profiles of brma's with loco harvests were analyzed according to the considered variables. the results indicate, beyond the different environmental-biological aspects, important differences in economic and institutional-organizational characteristics between areas with and without loco harvests during the period analyzed. moreover, we conclude that some key variables are associated with economic performance in the areas that harvested loco during the study period, including economic (selling price) and environmental-biological (resource density, habitable polygon) variables

Abstract: objective: salvage surgery is the first therapeutic option for recurrent tumors of the mouth and oropharynx, mainly in early stage tumors. this study intends to evaluate the disease free survival interval after salvage treatment for recurrent tumors of the mouth and oropharynx. methods: retrospective analysis of 276 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the mouth and oropharynx treated with surgery. one hundred and twenty seven patients developed loco-regional recurrence. ninety-seven were staged as early tumors and 178 as advanced ones. the tumor site was the lip in 25 cases, oral cavity in 173 and oropharynx in 78. postoperative radiotherapy was indicated in 121 cases with a mean dose of 60.8gy. results: eighty-nine patients underwent salvage treatment (surgery in 76 patients). loco-regional recurrences were treated with salvage surgery in 65% of cases. disease free survival after salvage surgery was 13% in cases with recurrences diagnosed up to 6 months and 48% in those who recurred after 12 months of follow-up (p=0.0009). modality of salvage treatment and the disease free interval were independent variables of survival in the multivariate analysis. conclusion: in cases clinically staged as i and ii, the disease free survival in five years after salvage treatment was 70%.
Arterial injury following a low energy pubic rami fracture

Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology , 2006, DOI: 10.1007/s10195-006-0148-3
Abstract: Patients with simple pubic rami fractures can be divided into two main groups: young people subject to high-energy trauma and elderly people who sustain osteoporotic fractures after minor falls. Cases associated with lifethreatening arterial injury mostly relate to the high-energy group. We report the case of a 70-year-old woman in whom a low-energy fall caused a stable pubic rami fracture injury associated with angiographyproven multiple hemorrhage from branches of both the internal and external iliac arteries which necessitated embolization of the bleeding vessels. As far as we are aware, angiography-proven bleeding from branches of the internal and external iliac arteries in a low-energy, stable pubic rami fracture has not been reported before. This case emphasizes the need for admission and careful hemodynamic monitoring in such cases.
