The impact of various platelet indices as prognostic markers of septic shock.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 08-13-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Platelet indices, including mean platelet volume (MPV), are readily available blood tests, although their prognostic value in patients with septic shock has not been fully explored. Current evidence has found contradictory results. This study aims to explore the behavior of platelet indices in septic shock and their clinical prognostic value.

Impact of intermittent pneumatic foot pumps on delay to surgery following ankle fracture.
Foot Ankle Surg
PUBLISHED: 01-19-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Ankle fractures requiring open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) are common and place considerable burden on inpatient beds. ORIF cannot be performed once the associated swelling is too excessive to permit tension-free wound closure. Where ORIF cannot be performed before the onset of swelling in the first 24-48h, patients typically require up to 7 days of inpatient bed-rest and elevation to reduce swelling to an acceptable level for ORIF. The primary aim of this study was to determine whether delay to ORIF could be reduced with the pre-operative application of an intermittent pneumatic foot pump (IPF). These devices were designed as anti-embolic adjuncts, but have also been shown to be effective in the reduction of swelling. We compared 12 patients managed with an IPF to 12 matched historical controls who were not. No previous studies have addressed this question in unselected patients requiring ankle ORIF.

Chronic sinus formation using non absorbable braided suture following open repair of Achilles tendon.
Foot Ankle Surg
PUBLISHED: 01-03-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
This study reports a case of a 34 year old man who sustained an Achilles tendon rupture which was surgically repaired using a non-absorbable suture that was complicated by a deep sinus and chronic infection. Despite antibiotics, surgical debridement and skin grafting, his condition did not resolve. Further imaging revealed a sinus leading to the core suture knot that was eccentrically placed but not buried within the healed tendon repair, and the offending suture was subsequently removed. This case highlights the importance of meticulous surgical technique when performing Achilles tendon repair and a high index of suspicion for early imaging when patients present with chronic wound infection post-operatively. The authors urge surgeons to use routinely use an absorbable non-braided suture, which remains buried within the core when performing Achilles tendon repair.

Is Velband still a safe and cost effective skin protection beneath the tourniquet in hand surgery?
Hand Surg
PUBLISHED: 02-25-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Skin complications have been reported to be associated with tourniquet use. The UK Medical Devices Agency (MDA) recommends the use of a limb drape to act as underpadding to reduce these complications. Our hospital had traditionally used Velbands as an underpadding, but changed to limb drapes on the advice of the MDA. The purpose of this study is to establish whether Velbands are still a safe and cost-effective tourniquet underpadding. A prospective clinical study was performed on consecutive patients undergoing hand surgery over a four-month period. Patients were randomly allocated into one of two treatment groups. Group 1 using Velband as tourniquet underpadding and Group 2 using limb drapes as underpadding. All patients had identical tourniquets, tourniquet pressure and skin preparation agents. After surgery, the tourniquet was removed and the skin beneath the tourniquet was inspected for any skin reaction or damage. Each group included 50 patients. Skin was normal after tourniquet use in all cases and there was no difference between the two groups. Velband is still a safe and cost-effective tourniquet underpadding in hand surgery.

Compartment syndrome of the foot secondary to fixation of ankle fracture--a case report.
Foot Ankle Surg
PUBLISHED: 03-28-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Compartment syndrome in the leg after open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of ankle fractures is rare. Compartment syndrome in the foot after ORIF of ankle fractures has not been reported before. A high degree of vigilance must be exercised when managing these fractures in order to avoid complications and morbidity. We report a case in which a bimalleolar fracture of the left ankle resulted in compartment syndrome of the foot.

Delayed surgical treatment of distal biceps tendon rupture - a case report.
Trauma Mon
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Traumatic rupture of the distal biceps tendon is rare. Conservative treatment can result in reduced flexion and supination power with reduced function. This case report emphasizes the need for prompt surgical treatment and describes the possible complications of delayed surgical intervention.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
