Abstract

In open fractures of the leg, in which because of any reason no primary stable osteosynthesis can be performed, threading with Kirschner wire is preferred by the authors. This method assures adaptation stability, with minimal osteosynthesis. Primary closure of the wound in the soft parts is striven by the authors, - if necessary, even by plastic surgery. If primary healing of the wound is obtained and also the other conditions are favourable, the treatment after 7-10 days is the same as after covered fractures: stable osteosynthesis is performed. On the other hand, if suppuration of the wound occurs, the opposing fixed fracutre bone ends assure favourable conditions for the successful surgical treatment of the fracture. A further advantage of the method is that it may be performed without special instruments and without greater surgical experience. The results obtained with this surgical treatment of open leg fractures in the 4 years' material of the Traumatological Department of the First Surgical Clinique of the University Medical School, Pécs, are discussed by the authors.

COVID-19

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.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia

Pontocerebellar hypoplasias are a group of neurodegenerative autosomal recessive disorders with prenatal onset, atrophy or hypoplasia of the cerebellum, hypoplasia of the ventral pons, microcephaly, variable neocortical atrophy and severe mental and motor impairments. Here is the latest research on pontocerebellar hypoplasia.

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.

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease that occurs in individuals that suffer repetitive brain trauma. Discover the latest research on traumatic encephalopathy here.
