A systematic review of outcomes and complications of treating unstable distal radius fractures in the elderly.
TLDR
A systematic review of existing literature for the management of osteoporotic distal radius fractures in patients aged 60 and over with 5 common techniques suggests that despite worse radiographic outcomes associated with CI, functional outcomes were no different from those of surgically treated groups for patients age 60 andover.

Free vascularized bone graft for nonunion of the scaphoid.
TLDR
A free vascularized small periosteal bone graft from the supracondylar region of the femur is used to treat scaphoid nonunion and is an attractive alternative to the conventional vascularized bone grafting procedures. Expand
Using a caries activity test to predict caries risk in early childhood.
TLDR
A caries activity test could predict 3 1/2-year-old children's caries risk based on 18-month and 2- year-old test results, which can indicate the need for caries-preventive treatment before a caries lesion actually is manifest. Expand
Symptomatic relevance of intravertebral cleft in patients with osteoporotic vertebral fracture.
TLDR
The role of fracture mobility and an intravertebral cleft in the regulation of pain symptoms in patients with an OVF and the extent of dynamic mobility of the fractured vertebra correlated significantly with the VAS score in patients of unhealed OVFs. Expand
An Economic Analysis of Hand Transplantation in the United States
TLDR
Prosthetic adaption is the dominant strategy for unilateral hand amputation and double hand transplantation exceeds the societally acceptable threshold for general adoption, and improvements in immunosuppressive strategies may change the incremental cost-utility ratio for hand transplants. Expand
One‐stage treatment of infected bone defects of the tibia with skin loss by free vascularized osteocutaneous grafts
TLDR
The use of a one‐stage free vascularized osteocutanous graft for the management of infected bone defects of the tibia with skin loss is effective because extensive debridement can remove all devitalized and infected tissue and can increase vascularity in the region of infection and osseous defect to enhance antibiotic delivery. Expand
Intraoperative measurement of pressure adjacent to the ulnar nerve in patients with cubital tunnel syndrome.
TLDR
The extraneural pressure within the cubital Tunnel actually was increased in the patients and compression of the ulnar nerve might be a causative factor of cubital tunnel syndrome. Expand
A significant improvement in lower limb pain after treatment with alendronate in two cases of Camurati–Engelmann disease
TLDR
Treatment of two cases of Camurati–Engelmann disease was attempted with alendronate, and the drug markedly improved bone pain, and a correlative decrease in cross-linked Ntelopeptides of type I collagen (NTX), a bone resorption marker, was noted. Expand
Comparative supine-sitting lateral radiographs identifying incident osteoporotic vertebral fractures
TLDR
Findings indicate that comparative supine and sitting lateral radiographs are a simple diagnostic procedure for incident OVF available in daily clinics and significantly higher in patients with mobile fractures than those with fixed fractures. Expand
The relationship between the pressure adjacent to the ulnar nerve and the disease causing cubital tunnel syndrome.
TLDR
Cubital tunnel pressure could be a more important causative factor for cubital tunnel syndrome in the elbows with osteoarthritis than in those without osteoartritis. Expand
