Displaced radial neck fractures in children

J H Newman


Forty-eight children with displaced fractures of the radial neck were studied. Five types of injury were seen, that associated with a valgus strain being the most common. Good results were obtained in just over one-half of the cases. It is concluded that treatment of these fractures should be by closed means whenever possible. It is generally unwise to attempt operative correction unless the radial head remains displaced or the residual angulation approaches 45 degrees. Open reduction should be checked by intraoperative radiographs. Internal fixation is seldom necessary and has its complications. Late manipulation of the fracture causes additonal trauma and the results are bad. Avascular necrosis and radio-ulnar synostosis were the two most disabling complication encountered.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
