Peripheral nerve injury, scarring, and recovery
TLDR
The existing literature surrounding biological aspects of perineural fibrosis following PNI is summarized, current strategies to limit nerve scarring are detail, and potential future studies which may ultimately lead to new therapeutic strategies are discussed.
Conventional vs 3-Dimensional Printed Cast Wear Comfort
TLDR
Both casting techniques demonstrate similar objective function based on the Jebsen Hand Function Test, and patient satisfaction, comfort, and perceived function are superior in the 3D printed casts.
Outcomes of Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Bilateral Fractures of the Distal Radius.
TLDR
In bilateral DRF treated with concomitant ORIF, functional outcomes, recovery of wrist ROM, and restoration of radiographic parameters are comparable to those seen in patients with ipsilateral DRF.
Risk of Infection in Trigger Finger Release Surgery Following Corticosteroid Injection.
TLDR
The risk for postoperative deep infection seems to be time dependent and greater when injections are performed within 90 days of surgery, especially in the 31- to 90-day postinjection period.
A Prospective Evaluation of Early Postoperative Complications After Distal Biceps Tendon Repairs.
TLDR
The complication rate after DBTR appears to be higher than 2 other retrospective studies and is predominantly in the form of transient neurapraxias, and this study confirms that there is a higher complication rate in 1-incision techniques as compared with 2- incision techniques.
Pain Management After Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery: A Prospective Randomized Double-Blinded Trial Comparing Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, and Oxycodone.
TLDR
The authors recommend using nonopioids such as ACE and IBU in the postoperative management after CTR surgery, and regardless of the medication prescribed, they advise prescribing no more than 5-10 pills after surgery.
Preoperative Exposure to Benzodiazepines or Sedative/hypnotics Increases the Risk of Greater Filled Opioid Prescriptions After Surgery
TLDR
Patients exposed to benzodiazepines and sedative/hypnotics have prolonged use of opioids after surgery and are now more aware of the potential problems of patients with exposure to controlled substances, and are more attentive about reviewing their history of substance use in the PDMP website.
Biologic and mechanical aspects of tendon fibrosis after injury and repair
TLDR
In this review, the recent literature surrounding cytokine modulation, gene and cell-based therapies, and tissue engineering is analyzed to lead to improved clinical outcomes following tendon injury in the future.
A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blinded Trial Comparing Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, and Oxycodone for Pain Management After Hand Surgery.
TLDR
No clinically significant difference in pain experience or capsule consumption based on postoperative opioid vs nonopioid medication was identified and the authors advise prescribing 5 to 10 or fewer pills postoperatively regardless of the analgesic selected.
Validation of the prescription drug monitoring program Web site.
TLDR
The authors' results suggest that the PA PDMP and its many supplementary databases are accurate as it relates to monitoring opioid prescriptions.
