The aim of this paper is to provide recommendations for diagnosis and management of arterial or venous aneurysms of the upper extremity.
The optimal timing of decompression surgery following thrombolysis in patients with primary upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT) is still a matter of debate. This systematic review compares the safety and efficacy of early intervention versus postponed intervention in patients with primary UEDVT.
The upper extremity is the most common site for nerve injuries. In most cases, direct repair can be performed, but when a critical gap occurs, special techniques must be used to enhance nerve regeneration and allow recovery of sensory and motor functions. These techniques include the use of autografts, processed nerve allografts, and conduits. However, surprisingly few studies have compared outcomes from the different methods of nerve gap repair in a rigorous fashion. There is a lack of evidence-based guide...
The acceptable incidence of thrombophlebitis following intravenous cannulation is 5% as recommended by the Intravenous Nurses Society guidelines, but publications have reported startling figures between 20% to 80%. Given the frequency of intravenous lines, this presents a potential clinical problem. We aimed to determine the predisposing patient, catheter and healthcare-related factors of peripheral vein thrombophlebitis in the upper extremity.
There are limited data on the use of acute-phase markers in the diagnosis of upper extremity infections. The goal of this study was to determine the percentage of patients with elevated white blood cell (WBC) count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and C-reactive protein (CRP) in the setting of an upper extremity infection requiring operative debridement. In a retrospective review over 12 years, 61 patients who met the inclusion criteria were identified. C-reactive protein was the most sensitive test...
Burns are devastating injuries that cause significant morbidity, emotional distress, and decreased quality of life. Advances in care have improved survival and functional outcomes; however, burns remain a major public health problem in developing countries. More than 95% of burns occur in low- and middle-income countries, where access to basic health care is limited. The upper extremity is involved in the majority of severe burn injuries. The purpose of this article is to review upper extremity burn epidemi...
There is wide variation in the reported size of ruptured intracranial aneurysms and methods of size estimation. There is widespread belief that small aneurysms
Metastatic disease involving the skeleton most often affects the spine, pelvis, and proximal long bones of the extremities. In the upper extremity, the proximal humerus is frequently affected. Although many of the principles of managing metastatic bone disease are similar, regardless of the metastatic site, the upper extremity has some unique anatomic and functional traits that warrant consideration when making management decisions. The main anatomic differences from the lower extremity pertain to the small...
Hemospray is a non-contact modality of endoscopic hemostasis that has been used in the management of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) with varying success. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of Hemospray in the management of UGIB.
Fractures in children are common and account for 10% to 25% of injuries in children with considerable effects on activity restriction and subsequent high socioeconomically impact. Eighty percent of all fractures in children occur at the upper extremity. The article investigates the epidemiology and fracture pattern of the upper extremity within a pediatric population consulting a tertiary referral hospital in Switzerland.
Need for evidential support of practice guideline recommendations for management of neurogenic bowel management in adults with spinal cord injury. To determine evidence for digital rectal stimulation (DRS) as an intervention in the management of upper motor neuron neurogenic bowels (UMN-NB) in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). A systematic review of the literature including research articles and practice guidelines evaluating upper motor neuron neurogenic bowel treatments and the use of digital rectal ...
Understanding the epidemiology of extremity skeletal metastasis and the factors deciding the treatment decision-making are essential in developing a diagnostic and treatment strategy. This leads to optimum care and reduces disease-related burden. With the evolution of medical, radiation therapy, and surgical methods, cancer care has improved the quality of life for patients with improved survival and functional status in patients with skeletal metastasis. Based on the currently available literature, we have...
Resection of nerves in extremity soft tissue sarcomas (STS) can lead to large functional deficits. Nerve reconstructions are rarely performed and little is known on their outcomes and indications for their use, even though they are essential in restoring sensation in limb salvage procedures. This study investigated current knowledge on functional outcomes and considerations to be taken before performing such reconstructions after sarcoma resection. A systematic search was performed in July 2018 in PubMed an...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease which affects the performance of the upper extremities. There is no method to evaluate the specific upper extremity endurance of individuals with this disease. The unsupported upper-limb exercise test (UULEX) is a performance test that evaluates upper extremity performance (functionality and endurance).
Compression ultrasonography (CUS) is the first-line imaging test in the diagnostic management of suspected deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower extremity. Three CUS strategies are used in clinical practice. However, their relative diagnostic accuracy is uncertain.
Flow diverter devices have gained wide acceptance for the treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Most studies are based on the treatment of large aneurysms harboring on the carotid syphon. However, during the last years the "off-label" use of these stents has widely grown up even if not supported by randomized studies. This review examines the relevant literature concerning "off-label" indications for flow diverter devices, such as for distal aneurysms, bifurcation aneurysms, small aneurysms, recur...
The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive nephrolithotomy (MPCNL) versus retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) in the management of upper urinary stones.
Pericallosal artery aneurysms are rare. Very few cases of this vascular anomaly have been published from West Africa. We report the first case of a ruptured pericallosal artery (PCA) aneurysm managed in a Nigerian neurosurgical facility, with the aim to add to the limited documentation on vascular brain lesions in our sub-region. The management outcome of the index patient and a literature review on these unusual aneurysms were also discussed.
Allograft tissue products have widespread applications across surgical specialties, but little data exist about surgeon attitudes toward the use of these products in the upper extremity.
Aneurysms of arteries in the extremities have a low incidence and are often manifest through complications. The most serious complications are rupture and extremity-threatening ischemia. Both usually lead to the diagnosis. Absolute indications for therapy are symptomatic aneurysms and asymptomatic aneurysms of 2 cm diameter or more. The extrailiacal gold standard is interponat or bypass with venous graft material. Endovascular methods are reserved for inoperable patients and clinical decisions on special ...
Many manual wheelchair users with a spinal cord injury are at risk of developing secondary upper extremity musculoskeletal impairments. The use of a mobility assistance dog may represent a way to mitigate this risk. This study aims to compare upper extremity muscular effort in this population when propelling a manual wheelchair on tiled and carpeted surfaces with and without the assistance of a dog.
The safety and efficacy of flow diversion (FD) in the treatment of cerebral aneurysms have been reported by many studies. FD has enabled the treatment of complex aneurysms and aneurysms that were previously untreatable by conventional means. It has achieved high rates of obliteration with essentially no recanalization, and its indications have continued to expand, now including ruptured aneurysms, blister aneurysms, and dissecting aneurysms.
Sports injuries of the upper extremity are a common problem seen by those who care for athletes and those who manage upper extremity injuries. The term "high-level athlete" may include adolescents and high school students, collegiate athletes, and of course, the professional athlete. However, the "weekend warrior" can sustain similar injuries and can have a similar desire to return to play as quickly as possible. The challenge in management of these injuries to the elbow, wrist, and hand is identifying thos...
This review aims to collect all available data on early and late outcomes in patients undergoing fenestrated endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (F-EVAR) for pararenal or juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs).
