  • [Title] Below-knee bare nitinol stent placement in high-risk patients with critical limb ischaemia and unlimited supragenicular inflow as treatment of choice.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of nitinol stent placement in long infrapopliteal lesions in patients with critical limb ischaemia.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2005 and January 2008, 34 high-risk patients (18 female; mean age: 73.8+/-6.1 years) with critical limb ischaemia underwent infragenicular stenting.
  • The mean stenosis length was 6.5+/-0.9 cm (range: 2.2-8 cm), and the mean occlusion length was 7.5+/-2.9 cm (range: 3-9.6 cm).
  • Digital subtraction angiography was performed if restenosis or re-occlusion was identified by Doppler US or transcutaneous measurement of partial oxygen pressure (TcpO(2)) measurements, when appropriate.
  • No procedure-related death was recorded in the entire follow-up period.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The mid-term outcome underscores infrapopliteal stent placement as a reliable treatment option in patients with critical limb ischaemia.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • HYPOTHESIS: The modular intramedullary nail offers a satisfactory functional result while maintaining limb length, in spite of a nonunion risk, since acting like a true endoprosthesis.
  • The Lequesne Algofunctional score and the WOMAC score were recorded, as well as the length discrepancy between the lower extremities.
  • DISCUSSION: Modular intramedullary nailing simplifies the technique, shortens the procedure, and reduces the amount of blood loss at surgery.

  • [Title] 'Diagnostic Procedures' associated with 'Limb Length Discrepancy': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Diagnostic Procedure' for 'limb length discrepancy'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Diagnostic Procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 15 publications, and group two 870 publications.
  • Here are the top 9.
  • Machen MS et al: Should full-length standing anteroposterior radiographs replace the scanogram for measurement of limb length discrepancy?.
  • Aaron A et al: Comparison of orthoroentgenography and computed tomography in the measurement of limb-length discrepancy.
  • Sabharwal S et al: Computed radiographic measurement of limb-length discrepancy. Full-length standing anteroposterior radiograph compared with scanogram.
  • Parvizi J et al: Surgical treatment of limb-length discrepancy following total hip arthroplasty.
  • Heaver C et al: Measuring limb length discrepancy using pelvic radiographs: the most reproducible method.
  • Lampe HI et al: Measurement of limb length inequality. Comparison of clinical methods with orthoradiography in 190 children.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Lower limb VV is a common disease affecting adults and estimated to be the seventh most common reason for physician referral in the US.
  • Globally, the prevalence of VV ranges from 5% to 15% among men and 3% to 29% among women varying by the age, gender and ethnicity of the study population, survey methods and disease definition and measurement.
  • The ELT procedure involves the introduction of a guide wire into the target vein under ultrasound guidance followed by the insertion of an introducer sheath through which an optical fibre carrying the laser energy is advanced.
  • A tumescent anesthetic solution is injected into the soft tissue surrounding the target vein along its entire length.
  • This serves to anaesthetize the vein so that the patient feels no discomfort during the procedure.
  • Both the laser fibre and the sheath are simultaneously, slowly and continuously pulled back along the length of the target vessel.
  • At the end of the procedure, homeostasis is then achieved by applying pressure to the entry point.
  • Adequate and proper compression stockings and bandages are applied after the procedure to reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism, and to reduce postoperative bruising and tenderness.
  • Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after the procedure and most patients return to work or usual activity within a few days.
  • If required, sclerotherapy may be performed during the ELT procedure or at any follow-up visits.

  • Lower limb VV is a very common disease affecting adults - estimated to be the 7th most common reason for physician referral in the US.
  • The prevalence of VV worldwide ranges from 5% to 15% among men and 3% to 29% among women varying by the age, gender and ethnicity of the study population, survey methods and disease definition and measurement.
  • The RFA procedure involves the introduction of a guide wire into the target vein under ultrasound guidance followed by the insertion of an introducer sheath through which the RFA catheter is advanced.
  • Once satisfactory positioning has been confirmed with ultrasound, a tumescent anaesthetic solution is injected into the soft tissue surrounding the target vein along its entire length.
  • The RF generator is then activated and the catheter is slowly pulled along the length of the vein.
  • At the end of the procedure, hemostasis is then achieved by applying pressure to the vein entry point.
  • Adequate and proper compression stockings and bandages are applied after the procedure to reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism and to reduce postoperative bruising and tenderness.
  • Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after the procedure.
  • If required, additional procedures such as phlebectomy or sclerotherapy may be performed during the RFA procedure or at any follow-up visits.
  • Procedure times were significantly longer after RFA than surgery.

  • [Title] 'Diagnostic Procedures' associated with 'Limb Length': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'diagnostic procedure' for 'limb length'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'diagnostic procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 21 publications, and group two 5044 publications.
  • Here are the top 10.
  • Leoni B et al: Avian hind-limb digit length ratios measured from radiographs are sexually dimorphic.
  • Machen MS et al: Should full-length standing anteroposterior radiographs replace the scanogram for measurement of limb length discrepancy?.
  • Parvizi J et al: Surgical treatment of limb-length discrepancy following total hip arthroplasty.
  • Bell JC et al: Transfemoral amputations: the effect of residual limb length and orientation on gait analysis outcome measures.
  • Aaron A et al: Comparison of orthoroentgenography and computed tomography in the measurement of limb-length discrepancy.
  • Sabharwal S et al: Computed radiographic measurement of limb-length discrepancy. Full-length standing anteroposterior radiograph compared with scanogram.
  • Vaidya R et al: CT scanogram for limb length discrepancy in comminuted femoral shaft fractures following IM nailing.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Before operation, 29 cases had leg length discrepancy; and the shortened length of the legs was 10-24 mm with an average of 14.5 mm by clinical measurement, and was 11-25 mm with an average of 14.7 mm by X-ray film measurement.
  • RESULTS: At 1 day after operation, 3 cases had legs lengthening by clinical and X-ray film measurement; limb length difference less than 10 mm was regarded as equal limb length in the other 35 patients (92.1%).
  • All incisions healed by first intention, and no complication of infection or lower limb deep venous thrombosis occurred.
  • In 3 patients who had legs lengthening, 1 patient had abnormal gait and slight limping after increasing heel pad because the lower limb was lengthened by 16 mm, and 2 patients had slight limping.
  • CONCLUSION: For patients with congenital short femoral neck during total hip arthroplasty, the surgeons should pay attention to osteotomy plane determination, limb length measurement, and use of the prosthesis with collar to avoid the lengthening lower limbs.

  • [Title] Limb length differences after obstetrical brachial plexus injury: a growing concern.
  • This study aimed to document the extent of limb length differences in children with obstetrical brachial plexus injury compared with typically developing children.
  • Also, this study examined the reliability of the clinical measurement technique.
  • METHODS: A prospective cohort of 179 children with obstetrical brachial plexus injury was systematically evaluated for limb length and girth by a multidisciplinary team.
  • A control group of typically developing children aged 6 months to 17 years had limb length and girth measured on one occasion.
  • RESULTS: Interrater reliability of clinical measurement techniques demonstrated high consistency, with an intraclass correlation of 0.90 (p < 0.0001).
  • Limb measurements were recorded at nine time points.
  • Paired t tests of children with and without surgical intervention found significant differences between affected and unaffected sides in arm, forearm, and total length as early as the 1-month measurement and at most other time points (p < 0.05).
  • The 3-month total limb length difference was a statistically significant predictor of 12-month limb length difference (p < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Obstetrical brachial plexus injury significantly affects the length of the arm and forearm.
  • Early detectable limb length deficits are associated with the likelihood of requiring surgical reconstruction.
  • Clinical limb length measurement can be performed reliably and noninvasively.

  • [Title] Mechanical axis following staple epiphysiodesis for limb-length inequality.
  • BACKGROUND: Staple epiphysiodesis is an option for the treatment of limb-length discrepancies, but it is not without complications.
  • METHODS: The study included patients who underwent, between 1990 and 2005, staple epiphysiodesis of the femur or tibia, or both, to address limb-length discrepancy.
  • We reviewed preoperative, postoperative, and final long standing anteroposterior radiographs of fifty-four patients to assess limb-length discrepancy, shifts in the mechanical axis, changes in the mechanical axis zone, and changes in the anatomic lateral distal femoral angle and the medial proximal tibial angle.
  • RESULTS: Three staple epiphysiodesis groups were identified: fifteen patients who underwent a distal femoral staple epiphysiodesis, eighteen who underwent a proximal tibial procedure, and twenty-one who underwent combined distal femoral and proximal tibial procedures.
  • Fifty percent (twenty-seven) of the fifty-four patients showed a shift in the mechanical axis of > or =1 cm as compared with the preoperative measurement.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mechanical axis deviation is common following staple epiphysiodesis for the treatment of limb-length discrepancy.
  • Distal femoral staple epiphysiodesis may still be a safe option for the treatment of limb-length discrepancy, but we advise caution when utilizing proximal tibial staple epiphysiodesis to treat limb-length inequality.

  • [Title] Limb-length discrepancy as a cause of plantar fasciitis.
  • BACKGROUND: Anisomelia, or limb-length discrepancy, has disruptive effects on gait, posture, and ambulation.
  • Limb-length discrepancy has been shown to be a factor in stress fractures in the femur and tibia, and the longer limb, a contributing factor in the development of low-back pain, a cause of scoliosis.
  • We sought to determine whether limb-length discrepancy contributes to the frequency and severity of plantar fasciitis.
  • Direct and indirect methods were used to measure limb-length discrepancy.
  • RESULTS: There is enough evidence to support the fact that the pain location and the longer limb are associated (Fisher test P < .0001).
  • These results indicate a strong correlation between a longer limb and unilateral plantar fasciitis pain.

  • [Title] Evaluation of a new low-dose biplanar system to assess lower-limb alignment in 3D: a phantom study.
  • OBJECTIVE: Knee coronal alignment is routinely assessed on a full-length radiograph of the lower limbs.
  • However, poor positioning of the knee during the procedure affects the accuracy of this kind of measurement, particularly in cases combining knee rotation and flexion.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A biplanar slot scanning system was used to take radiographs of three lower-limb synthetic models with similar frontal deviation (5° valgus) but different flexion angulations (0°, 9°, and 18°).
  • Biplane acquisitions were done with lower-limb axial rotations ranging from 20° of internal rotation to 20° of external rotation on each of the lower limb models.
  • Three independent observers performed standard 2D measurements of the HKA angle from each anteroposterior (AP) image and also modeled the lower limb in 3D for each biplane acquisition with dedicated software.
  • RESULTS: Axial rotation provoked 2D HKA measurement errors up to, respectively, 1.4°, 4.7°, and 6.8° for the lower extremities with 0°, 9°, and 18° flexion, while it never affected the 3D HKA measurement for more than 1.5°.

  • PURPOSE: To create a physeal bar using a radiofrequency (RF) ablation technique in a rabbit model and to validate an indirect measurement of the bar area from MRIs with direct histologic measurements.
  • METHODS: An epiphysiodesis procedure was performed on the proximal tibial growth plates of 15 skeletally immature rabbit knees using radiofrequency ablation.
  • The measurement differences that were found may be attributed to histologic specimen preparation and the geometry chosen to model the physis.
  • CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The results of this study allow for the quantitative evaluation of in vivo human physes in future studies and development of predictive models for limb length discrepancy.

  • [Title] 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedures' associated with 'Caliper': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure' for 'caliper'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 26 publications, and group two 3014 publications.

  • [Title] Comparison of limb-length discrepancy after THA: with and without computer navigation.
  • Limb-length discrepancy following total hip arthroplasty (THA) is often cited as a reason for patient dissatisfaction and for hip instability.
  • Various intraoperative techniques have been described to help restore normal limb length after THA.
  • The purpose of this study was to assess whether a computer-navigated surgical technique would help restore limb-length equality following THA.A retrospective study of 150 consecutive patients compared a free-hand (non-navigated) THA technique vs a computer-navigated THA technique.
  • The primary outcome measurement was limb-length discrepancy, which was evaluated using a digital anteroposterior pelvic radiograph.
  • Secondary outcome measurements included a Harris Hip Score questionnaire and a single question evaluating the subjective feeling of the operative limb (longer, shorter, or equal).
  • At a minimum 1-year follow-up, results showed that computer-navigated THA helped restore limb-length equality.
  • An average leg-length difference of 0.3 mm (SD=0.3 mm) was found with computer-navigated THA compared with a leg-length difference of 1.8 mm (SD=0.7 mm) when a non-navigated THA was used.
  • Both groups had similar Harris Hip Scores (computer-navigated group, 84.8; non-navigated group, 84.2; P=.835), and no difference was found between the 2 groups regarding the patient's perception of the operative limb length.This study demonstrated that computer-navigated THA resulted in improved restoration of normal limb length and limited significant outliers but did not show improvement in Harris Hip Scores or patient's perception of limb-length equality.

  • BACKGROUND: Deficiency in upper limb development is a sequel of the perinatal brachial plexus palsy.
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of brachial plexus birth lesion on upper limb development.
  • Correlation between limb length / circumference discrepancy and age / time of surgery was assessed using Pearson correlation coefficient.
  • RESULTS: A decrease in the circumference and length was observed in all limbs with brachial plexus lesion.
  • We found a statistically significant difference between degree of hand length and width decrease and its useful and useless function.
  • We observed a statistically significant difference in measurement: forearm length, hand length and width dependent on the type of surgical procedure (neurolysis, reconstruction).
  • We observed no correlation between age and limb length / circumference discrepancy.
  • We also observed no correlation between time of surgery and limb length / circumference discrepancy.
  • Disparities in dimensions are observed in both cases of deficiency of useful function of upper limb and cases in which functional efficiency appears.

  • Ischemic preconditioning of tissue before inducing procedure-related underperfusion may reduce the postoperative inflammatory response, which further may reduce associated pain.
  • QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: In this prospective, randomized study, we aimed at evaluating the impact of ischemic preconditioning on postoperative pain at rest and during exercise; use of pain medication; levels of systemic prothrombotic and local inflammatory markers; and length of stay and achievement of physical therapy milestones.
  • METHODS: Sixty patients undergoing unilateral TKA under tourniquet were enrolled with half (N = 30) being randomized to an episode of limb preconditioning before induction of ischemia for surgery (tourniquet inflation).
  • No differences were found between groups in regard to hospitalization length and time to various physical therapy milestones.

  • [Title] 'Medical Devices' associated with 'Limb Length': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Medical Device' for 'limb length'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Medical Device'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 21 publications, and group two 5990 publications.

  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-three patients (mean age 67 ± 10 years; 18 females, 35 males, TASC B and C, mean lesion length 7.9 ± 3.5 cm) with PAD (Rutherford 2-6) were enrolled into this prospective monocentric study.
  • Patients were followed-up for 36 months with a 6-month interval to perform clinical re-evaluation, including measurement of maximum walking distance and ankle-brachial index (ABI) as well as duplex-sonography.
  • RESULTS: The primary success rate of the procedure was 92 %.
  • Procedure-related embolization occurred in seven cases (12 %), which were all successfully treated by aspiration.
  • The limb-salvage rate after 3 years was 87 %.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The Simbionix Angiomentor Procedure Rehearsal Studio (PRS) offers accurate virtual anatomy for measurement, stent graft selection, and deployment of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) devices.
  • Using centerline measurements created on PRS, neck diameter (D1), length from lowest renal artery to each iliac bifurcation (Ll and Lr), and common iliac artery diameter (Dl and Dr) were recorded.
  • Simulated EVAR was then performed using PRS on a dual limb endovascular simulator.
  • Fifty percent of the cases (5/10) had changes in device length when using the "in vivo" 3D volume filled model and angiographic measurements.
  • Analysis of variance revealed no significant differences between the groups in any measurement-main body diameter P = 0.960; main body length P = 0.643; and contralateral limb length P = 0.333.

  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Diagnostic Procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
