7 medtech stories we missed this week: April 7, 2017

[Image from unsplash.com]New studies for umbilical cord allografts and tumor targeting were published this week while another company received European CE Marking. Here are some medtech stories we missed this week but thought were still worth mentioning. 1. AMNIOX touts new umbilical cord study AMNIOX Medical announced that it has published the results of 3 studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of umbilical cord tissue for treating chronic wounds, according to an April 7 press release.

Fracture Healing

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 21:25:08 +0100

Fracture healing is a process in which the body heals and repairs the broken bone. Requirements for bone healing A requirement for bone healing is vascularity (sufficient blood supply). The nutrient artery supplies 80% of the cortex. The periosteal vessels supply the outer 20% of the cortex. The metaphyseal vessels provide a very rich blood supply to the ends of the bone (Figure 1). Fractures stimulate the release of growth factors that attract stem cells and promote angiogenesis, vasodilation and healing of the bone. Blood flow increases at the fracture site. Metaphyseal bone heals faster than diaphyseal bone because of the rich blood supply. A second requirement for bone healing is to have adequate mechanical stability of the fracture. This can be achieved with a variety of techniq...



Osteomyelitis

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 21:00:56 +0100

Chronic osteomyelitis is an infection in the bone, which can be an incurable problem (Figure 1). What happens when the bone gets infection (osteomyelitis)? Usually bacteria causes infection in the bone. Leukocytes are attracted to the area and secrete enzymes in attempt to kill the bacteria (Figure 2). Leukocytes are normal white blood cells that defend the body against any outside invaders. Blood flow to the area is decreased, and devitalized necrotic bone is formed called a sequestrum (Figure 3). That sequestrum is an infected dead bone resulting from osteomyelitis. It is a nidus of infection. Haversian canals surround blood vessels and nerve cells throughout the bone, and give nutrition to the bone (Figure 4). The sequestrum has no connection to the normal bone through the Hav...

What is in the Differential Diagnosis of Fatigue?

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 00:52:46 +0100

Discussion Fatigue is a subjective feeling of decreased energy, tiredness or feeling of exhaustion. Lethargy is often used synonymously, but lethargy is a state of being drowsiness or sleepy, and implies mental status changes. Both can cause the person to be apathetic or less active. Fatigue is a common state that almost everyone experiences multiple times in his or her lifetime. For most people it is a relatively acute or short-term chronic problem, often with a relatively easily identifiable problem cause, such as inadequate sleep, acute illness, or overexertion. For some, it can be less readily identifiable such as depression, anemia, or hypothyroidism or because of a chronic illness with its waxing and waning natural history or being under- or over-treated. Chronic fatigue and cause d...

Native Valve Endocarditis

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 09:47:44 +0100

Lactococcus garvieae is regarded as a veterinary pathogen, causing hemorrhagic septicemia in fish (1) and mastitis in cows (2). The organism has also been recovered from a variety of dairy products, such as unpasteurized milk (3) and cheese (4–6), as well as various meat products (5,6). L. garvieae is an uncommon cause of human infection, with only a limited number of cases reported worldwide (7–20). Most infections involve either native (7–11) or prosthetic (12–15) heart valves, but cases of osteomyelitis (16–17), hepatic abscess (18), and septicemia (19) have also been documented.

What Causes Leg Pain?

Mon, 19 May 2014 00:08:03 +0100

Discussion “Growing pains” of the legs are a common complaint in children. Heterogeneous studies from 1928-2004 have found prevalence rates of 2.6-49.4% in children ages 4-19. The studies are heterogeneous because of time, location, and especially definition of growing pains. A study of 1445, 4-6 year olds in 2004 using a validated tool showed a prevalence rate of 36.9%. The definition of growing pains used by Peterson in the 2004 study is chronic “…intermittent (nonarticular) pains in both legs that generally occur late in the day or at night…” with a normal physical examination and laboratory testing (if any is done). The pain is in the thigh or calf muscles. The pain can occur over weeks or months. Patients should not have a history of trauma but bec...

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 00:13:32 +0100

Discussion Fifth metatarsal fractures are a common fracture of the foot and are the most common metatarsal fracture in children > 5 years of age and adults. There is a peak age distribution in the second and fifth decades of life. Teenage boys in organized sports are one of the most common groups affected. In acute fractures, acute pain and inability to walk are common presentations, whereas in a stress fracture an increase in activity, or chronic repetitive forces are at play. Fifth metatarsal fractures have various classifications. Fracture locations from proximal to distal include avulsion fractures (a common acute fracture because of torque forces in the proximal diaphysis), Jones fracture, metaphyseal fractures (common location for stress fractures) and neck and head fractures.

Treatment of Infections Due to Resistant Staphylococcus aureus

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 23:18:18 +0100

This chapter reviews data on the treatment of infections caused by drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, particularly methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA). This review covers findings reported in the English language medical literature up to January of 2013. Despite the emergence of resistant and multidrug-resistant S. aureus, we have seven effective drugs in clinical use for which little resistance has been observed: vancomycin, quinupristin–dalfopristin, linezolid, tigecycline, telavancin, ceftaroline, and daptomycin. However, vancomycin is less effective for infections with MRSA isolates that have a higher MIC within the susceptible range. Linezolid is probably the drug of choice for the treatment of complicated MRSA skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs); whether it is drug of...

What is the Differential Diagnosis of Multiple Fractures?

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 00:42:51 +0100

Discussion Bone mass, size and strength is at its peak in early adulthood. Multiple factors contribute to bone health including bone mass, hormonal balance, nutrition and weight bearing physical activity. Fractures are basically caused by too much force to be withstood by the bone. Abnormal momentary forces commonly occur in sports injuries such as this patient. When a child or young adult has several fractures, particularly clinically significant fractures, the possibility of an unidentified, underlying cause should be considered. According to the International Society for Clinical Densitometry, clinically significant fractures that clinicians should consider for a DXA scan includes fracture of long bones in the lower extremities, vertebral compression fractures, or two or more long-bone...
