Evaluating the Impact of Physical Therapy on Wrist Fracture Patients Treated with Volar Locking Plates

Miodrag Vranjes
Introduction: Distal radius fractures are among the most frequent musculoskeletal injuries, accounting for over 17% of fractures treated in emergency care centers. The primary objective is to promote healing and restore the pre-injury level of functionality. Treatment generally involves two phases: initial care and definitive surgery, where volar locking plates are used to stabilize fractures, presenting a low risk of complications. Personalized rehabilitation plans are crucial in this context. ...

Effectiveness of Botulinum Toxin A First Injection on Gastrocnemius Muscle Spasticity in Children with Cerebral Palsy: Clinical and Elastosonography Study

Soumaya Boudokhane, Amine Kalai, Houda Migaou, Ons Borgi, Badii Hmida, Anis Jellad, Zohra Ben Salah Frih
Background: An accurate assessment of the spasticity in the spastic forms of cerebral palsy (CP) is important to establish the effectiveness of therapeutic management. The modified Ashworth scale (MAS) is the most frequently used method in the assessment of spasticity in clinical practice. However, this method does not allow an objective, precise and reliable assessment because of the lack of standardization and the low level of reliability. Elastosonography (ES) is an imaging method that assess...

Yassine Sbaiti, Niama Ghozali, Meriem Meliani, Stéphane Ruck, Khadija Darif, Mounia Amzerin, Fatima Zahra El M’rabet
Accidental extravasation of anthracyclines is a rare incident but if ever it happens, it can lead to serious complications, which could go as far as tissue necrosis with the need for surgery in most of the cases. In accordance with current recommendations, intravenous administration of Dexrazoxane within 6 hours of extravasation is recommended to reduce the risk of skin necrosis. We report the case of a 63-year-old patient, diagnosed with breast cancer, who presented with extravasation of Epirub...
