Carpal tunnel syndrome in pregnancy.
TLDR
During pregnancy, hormonal fluctuations, fluid shifts, and musculoskeletal changes predispose women to carpal tunnel syndrome and electrodiagnostic testing is considered a safe procedure for both mother and fetus.
The effects of forearm rotation on three wrist measurements: radial inclination, radial height and palmar tilt.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that forearm rotation is an important factor in the accurate evaluation of wrist measurements, and that slight rotation of the wrist during radiographic imaging may significantly alter management decisions given established surgical criteria.
Extensor tendon injuries.
TLDR
An overview of the treatment of extensor tendon injuries is presented, with a focus on recent developments.
Adherence to the AAOS upper-extremity clinical practice guidelines.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the adherence to these CPGs by members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH), and to understand the reasons for and possible solutions to the inconsistent adherence to the AAOS C PGs.
A Prospective Evaluation of Opioid Utilization After Upper-Extremity Surgical Procedures: Identifying Consumption Patterns and Determining Prescribing Guidelines.
TLDR
It is found that patients are being prescribed approximately 3 times greater opioid medications than needed following upper-extremity surgical procedures, and surgeons should consider customizing their opioid prescriptions on the basis of anatomic location and procedure type to prescribe the optimal amount of opioids while avoiding dissemination of excess opioids.
Treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome by members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand: a 25-year perspective.
TLDR
This survey identified several changes in current clinical practices including the following statistically significant findings: Preoperatively, surgeons have increased the use of splints and corticosteroid injections, treat nonoperatively longer, and have narrowed their surgical indications.
Radiographic Stage Does Not Correlate With Symptom Severity in Thumb Basilar Joint Osteoarthritis
TLDR
Radiographic severity in TBJA does not correlate with validated patient-reported symptom scores, so metrics that link radiographic and subjective components of TBJA may improve surgical decision making and monitoring of treatment response.
Incidence of Hardware Removal Following Volar Plate Fixation of Distal Radius Fracture.
TLDR
The incidence of hardware removal in this series was 10%, and the vast majority of patients had Soong grade 1 prominence, which indicated that patients who had hardware removed had a greater plate prominence volar to the critical line.
Anatomy of the coronoid process.
TLDR
The coronoid anatomy measurements reported in this study may help to improve coronoid fracture classification and be used to improve lateral radiographic classification of coronoid fractures.
