A New Adventure for our Journal! (Joints)

Milano, Guiseppe

A journal editor writing an editorial, or indeed anyone else entrusted with this task, is usually expected to draw attention to the highlights of the current issue (new developments, debated issues, controversial opinions, and so on), thereby giving an idea of the potential impact of its content on readers and on the broader scientific community.  Read more.

Impact of a Dedicated Research Rotation during Ophthalmology Residency (Journal of Academic of Ophthalmology)

Valikodath, Nita G.; Fausett, Blake V.; Oren, Gale A.; Whitney, Katherine; Woodward, Maria A.; Mian, Shahzad I.

While it seems intuitive that ophthalmic research should be driven by ophthalmologists, an increasing proportion of ophthalmologists are not pursuing an academic career. Over the past few decades, the overall number of physicians with active research careers has declined. Fewer physicians are engaging in research because of economic disincentives, including medical school costs, income disparities between researchers and clinicians, and additional training time for specific degrees in research methodologies. Read more.

Useful Effects of Melatonin in Peripheral Nerve Injury and Development of the Nervous System (Journal of Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Injury)

Uyanikgil, Yigit; Cavusoglu, Turker; Kılıc, Kubilay Dogan; Yigitturk, Gurkan; Celik, Servet; Tubbs, Richard Shane; Turgut, Mehmet

This review summarizes the role of melatonin (MLT) in defense against toxic-free radicals and its novel effects in the development of the nervous system, and the effect of endogenously produced and exogenously administered MLT in reducing the degree of tissue and nerve injuries. MLT was recently reported to be an effective free radical scavenger and antioxidant. Read more.

The Fleur-de-PAP Flap for Bilateral Breast Reconstruction (Journal of Reconstructive Microsurgery Open)

Saussy, Katharine; Stalder, Mark W.; Delatte, Stephen J.; Allen, Robert J.; St Hilaire, Hugo

The authors present the case of a 42-year-old female patient who underwent autologous breast reconstruction using a new perforator flap designed from the medial and posterior thigh. Due to a prior abdominoplasty, the patient's abdominal donor site was unavailable to reconstruct her large, ptotic breasts, so an alternate approach was undertaken. Read more.


Treatment of Posttubercular Syringomyelia Not Responsive to Antitubercular Therapy: Case Report and Review of Literature (Journal of Neurological Surgery Reports)

Canova, Giuseppe; Boaro, Alessandro; Giordan, Enrico; Longatti, Pierluigi

Posttubercular adhesive arachnoiditis is a rare, late complication of tubercular meningitis. Syringomyelia can develop as a consequence of intramedullary cystic lesions and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow disturbance around the spinal cord, even after successful chemotherapy. We reviewed the literature related to posttubercular syringomyelia treatment and suggest a new combined surgical approach. Read more.
