Abstract :

Rotator cuff tears are observed to be the common amongst the elderly and athletes. There are many techniques for repairing the rotator cuff tears such as open supraspinatus tear repair, mini-open tear repair, arthroscopic, etc. Although, previous studies have shown that both techniques are associated with good clinical outcomes, the most effective method of repair is yet to be determined. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the early and late clinical results of arthroscopic technique versus open repair technique in patients with full-thickness rotator cuff tears. It was a randomized clinical trial performed on 100 patients undergoing rotator cuff repair using arthroscopic technique or open repair technique. Patients with complains of shoulder pain, visiting OPD between July 2019 and June 2020, were evaluated for the presence of a full thickness rotator cuff tear. Evaluation was done using the simplified version of the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) Score and Constant Murley Score (CMS). Pain was rated using a self-rated visual analog scale (VAS). Forward Flexion and External Rotation, of the shoulder joint in both groups was improved postoperatively and there was no statistically significant difference between the groups at any point of time. The VAS was significantly higher at Post-operative Day 1 and Month 1 for open repair technique as compared to arthroscopic technique. The DASH score was significantly higher at Post-operative Month 3 and Month 6 for open repair technique as compared to arthroscopic technique. The CMS was significantly higher at Post-operative Month 1 for arthroscopic technique as compared to open repair technique. Both the techniques deliver similar results in long-term outcome, but arthroscopy technique delivers better recovery at short-term follow-ups.

Abstract : Rhino cerebral mucormycosis is a life-threatening infection caused by saprophytic fungi seen almost exclusively in immuno-compromised patients. Now there are increased cases with super infections by mucormycosis, which were rarely reported in the beginning of the current pandemic of COVID 19. Since mucormycosis occurs infrequently, it may pose a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma for those who are not familiar with its clinical presentations. Early imaging is helpful in assessing the extent of involvement of this lethal disease which requires prompt and aggressive treatment..

Abstract : Mucormycosis is an opportunistic, fulminating fungal infection of the sino-nasal region. It tends to affect people with immune suppression. The nasal septum is a rare site of the disease and few cases have been reported in the literature. This paper discusses the incidence of nasal septal perforation in mucormycosis patients, with the aim of outlining possible explanations and reviewing associated characteristics. This was a retrospective analysis. Patients diagnosed with mucormycosis were admitted in the mucor ward at Dr DY Patil Medical College. An aggressive treatment protocol was used, i.e. an intensive course of antifungal drugs and frequent debridement of dead tissue. Most patients are asymptomatic and estimated that approximately two thirds of people infected show no nasal complaints. The absence of symptoms is directly related to the size and location of the perforation of the nasal septum. Orbit and intracranial extension was the preceding sign in all instances. The progression of the perforation was not controlled by a full course of treatment. Often, patients come to the ENT complaining of wheezing and nasal crusting and discover they possess a septal perforation. The more subtle symptoms, such as discrete whistles caused by air turbulence, are related to small perforations. Mucormycosis of the nasal septum is an ominous sign. Although rare, the lesion is progressive in nature and barely controlled by treatment..

Abstract : A rare case report of patient presenting with radius-ulna midshaft fracture along with ipsilateral lower end radius fracture. A 44 y/f with complaints of pain and swelling over right wrist and forearm for 1 day. She had a history of road traffic accident 1 day back. On examination, diffuse swelling and tenderness were noted over right forearm and wrist, along with a restricted range of motions at elbow and wrist. Plain radiograph of forearm and wrist joint was suggestive of transverse fracture of radius ulna midshaft along with colles fracture of the lower end radius. The patient was started on Analgesics and IV fluids, and Open Reduction Internal Fixation with Plating was done for Radius and Ulna Shaft along with Closed Reduction Internal Fixation for Lower End Radius Fractures under Supra-Clavicular and Axillary Nerve Root Block. Post-op, immediate mobilization and ROM exercises of elbow were started and a below elbow slab was given for immobilisation of wrist to which the patient responded positively. The patient was discharged upon suture removal with a healthy suture line and a below elbow cast given for stabilising the wrist joint and upon subsequent monthly follow-ups, showed progressive improvement of symptoms with an increasing range of motions and sequential radiographs also suggestive of fracture healing. K- Wires were removed after 6 weeks post operatively..

Abstract : Carrying angle is clinically defined as the angle made by the longitudinal axis of the arm and the forearm in full extension with the elbow supinated. One of the main factors which affect the value of carrying angle is hand grip strength. The main objective of this study is to investigate the relation between the carrying angle and hand grip strength in normal healthy children. 370 Normal Healthy Children of both sexes with mean of age 15-18 years examined in different schools. The Carrying angle was assessed by Digital goniometer on both sides (Dominant and non-Dominant) and hand grip strength was assessed by Camry Hand Held Dynamometer (model: EH101, USA), forearm length and forearm diameter were measured by tape measurement. The results showed that there was a statistical significant negative correlation between carrying angle and hand grip strength in dominant and non-dominant sides in both boys and girls and there was a statistical significant difference between carrying angle in both dominant and non-dominant sides in both sexes in favor of dominant side, negative correlation between carrying angle and forearm length and negative correlation between carrying angle and forearm diameter in both sides in girls but there is no relation between carrying angle and forearm diameter in boys. We conclude that the weakness of hand grip is related to the value of the carrying angle..
