Traumas to the proximal tibial epiphyseal growth plate account for less than 2% of all physeal injuries, therefore, it may cause diagnostic or therapeutic difficulties. The authors studied a group of patients treated in the Clinic of pediatric surgery, orthopedics and traumatology of the Brno Faculty Hospital (FN Brno) during past 11 years, in order to assess its treatment outcomes and complication rates. Based on the Salter-Harris (SH) classification, the studied patients with proximal tibia epiphyseolyses were assigned to groups using the following criteria: type of epiphyseolysis and treatment approach, and the authors identified associated complications in individual patients. The follow up assessment of the treatment course and results were performed for each of the groups. The studied parametres included: fixation duration, duration of subsequent rehabilitation care, knee joint mobility and complication rates (angulation, limb shortening, skeletal porosis and eventual reoperation). The studied complications were recorded in 2 subjects in the undislocated epiphyseolysis group treated conservatively, and a single complication was recorded in the traumatic fragment dislocation group. Out of the total of 19 patients, complica...Continue Reading

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.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain. Disocver the latest research on single cell analysis of the gut-brain axis here.
