Optimal diagnosis and management of common nail disorders.

All 20 nail units should be examined for nail disease diagnosis and medical examination before beginning to diagnose nail disease. Patient education on proper nail care and techniques to minimize further damage to the affected nails is also important. This finding supports further examination into rule out malignancy, as nail changes can reveal the presence of a serious underlying systemic disease, infection, or malignancy.

Uveitis and nail psoriasis in a patient without articular involvement: a case report.

The aim of this review was to describe a case of bilateral anterior non-granulomatous chronic non-infectious uveitis associated with isolated nail psoriasis without articular involvement. Case Summary A 55-year-old man with a history of open-angle glaucoma was referred to our uveitis and ocular immunology center with intraocular inflammation conjunct with persistent non-infectious bilateral non-granulomatous uveitis. Nail psoriasis was later confirmed by nail ultrasonography performed by a radiologist who specialized in psoriasis. Discussion and conclusions This is the first study of non-infectious uveitis associated with nail compromise in a patient with no obvious signs of psoriasis. Despite studies involving psoriatic disease and uveitis, there is a lack of evidence on uveitis phenotypes that may lead to later diagnosis and treatment of related intraocular inflammation. Clinicians should be aware of all subtypes of psoriasis that can cause uveitis in these patients.

Management of Feline Femoral, Tibial and Humeral Fractures Using a 3.5 mm Titanium Interlocking Nail.

Using a 3. 5-mm titanium interlocking nail, we were able to highlight the effects of signalization, fracture type, and fixation studies on the occurrence of complications. Retrospective clinical study was published. Material and methods The study of cats with long-bone fractures treated with an interlocking nail was examined. Sixty-seven fractures of 67 cats were investigated in this research. Screw breakage, nail breakage, nail bending, screw loosening, non-union – all of the problems occurred in 8/67 fractures and included screw breakage, nail breakage, nail bendage, nail bending, screw loosening, non-union – non-union complication. A significant difference between fracture types and the occurrence of significant complications was revealed by statistical analysis. Conclusion In conclusion, this commercially available 3. 5-mm titanium interlocking nail for stabilization of comminuted and oblique humeral, femoral, and tibial fractures in cats is doable.

A combined technique of external fixation over an intramedullary nail in the treatment of bone defect caused by infection

Background: The aim of the investigation was to determine the clinical and functional outcomes of patients with tibial bone defects treated by a combined method of external fixation over an intramedullary nail. Methods: Between May 2010 and January 2019, the clinical and radiographic records of patients with infected bone defects were collected and analyzed. S. audus and 3 P. cuprina patients were infected with S. aureus and 3 others with P. cuprina. All patients were successful, with a mean bone union time of 6. 72 u00b1 0. 66 months. The bone quality was excellent in 14 patients, fair in 1 patient, and the function grade was stable in 13 patients, fair in 2 patients. Conclusions: EFIN, as a result of the combined approach of EFIN, was a viable alternative to treat the infected bone defects in lower limbs, which could greatly reduce the EFT, EFI, and incidence of complications.

Finite-Element Analysis of a Novel Cephalomedullary Nail for Restricted Sliding to Reduce Risk of Implant Failure in Unstable Intertrochanteric Fractures.

Figures The sliding distance of helical blade in the femoral neck, the highest strain on the femur and nail, was 0. 65 mm, 689 MPa, 18. 18 mm, respectively in PFNA-II, respectively, were 0. 68 mm, 720. 8 MPa, 18. 18 mm. In MSN-II, the difference between the two groups was statistically significant, and the strain was mostly distributed in the medial distal portion of nail, but not in the helical blade or the proximal aperture for the nail. Conclusion The sliding distance of helical blade in femoral neck, the greatest strain on the femur and nail, as well as the displacement of a proximal fragment of MSN-II, were less than those of PFNA-II in the treatment of periodic fractures. MSN-II has better stability than PFNA-IIII, and it may have the ability to reduce femur medialization and cutting out.

Stakeholders’ perspectives on the feasibility of adopting a Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Program in Philadelphia: A qualitative study

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND INFORMATION OVER THE CONCEPTION Background The California Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Program is a statewide effort to encourage nail salons to adopt safer nail care methods such as the use of less toxic chemicals, installation of ventilation systems, proper personal protective equipment use, and staff education. We conducted this qualitative survey in Philadelphia to determine stakeholder perspectives on the possibility of adopting the Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Program because the community wants to implement similar services in the Greater Philadelphia area. We have collected this qualitative data to record stakeholder perspectives on the possibility of adopting the Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Program. To promote mutual understanding between the authority and the ethnically diverse nail salon groups, successful adoption of the Healthy Nail Recognition Service in Philadelphia, according to our findings, successful adoption of the Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Service will require outreach within the community to raise concerns of the program and close collaboration with community-based organizations to increase community understanding and improve cooperation among the authority and the ethnically diverse nail salon groups.

Long-term survival of hybrid total hip replacement for prior failed proximal femoral nail antirotation: a retrospective study with a median 10-year follow-up.

Background Overview of elderly patients with proximal femur fractures are often treated with a hybrid total hip replacement. This retrospective research was designed to determine whether hybrid THRs with failed proximal femoral nail antirotation in elderly people aged u2265 percent in 75 years could live long-term. Methods An observational cohort of 227 individuals aged u2265-75 years who experienced hybrid THRs after prior primary PFNAs was retrospectively identified from the Joint Surgery Center, the First Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-Sen University's First Affiliated Hospital. The implant survivorship analysis using the Kaplan-Meier method with revision for any reason as the end point, was the primary end point; secondary end points were the function score determined using the updated Harris Hip Score and the incidence of major orthopaedic disorders.
