- 2013 SpringerGrégoire Chick, editor.Neglected finger injuries may lead to chronic lesions that often have detrimental consequences for the practice of a ball sport, whether at a recreational level or at the top athlete level. The initial injury management is crucial. Depending on the type and the severity of the lesions, different people may get involved: the players themselves or their entourage, physiotherapists, club doctors, emergency physicians, family doctors, sports doctors or hand surgeons. Treatment is usually conservative: the long fingers require rapid mobilization to prevent stiffness and contrary to that, the thumb requires stability. Surgery may be necessary to reach these goals especially for athletes, because of the demands of their sport. Chronic lesions are also in part related to repeated trauma, requiring specialized long-term multidisciplinary treatment. They can often lead to the end of a sporting career, but also may limit the functionality of the fingers at the time of conversion.

- 2014 Springeredited by Hans-Jörg Oestern, Otmar Trentz, Selman Uranues.All European countries, including those that have recently joined the European Union or are candidates for membership, currently show a clear trend towards an increasing number of accidental injuries. This holds true for a range of injuries, including accidents among the elderly, sports injuries, and trauma due to traffic accidents. The increase in the number of injuries is accompanied by rising expectations among patients, who anticipate good functional results even after serious injuries. Despite these developments, trauma surgery is not yet established as an independent field in all European countries. Against this background, there is a clear need for a book that covers the state of the art in trauma surgery. This volume, which focuses on bone and joint injuries orthopedic trauma is intended to help to meet this need. It will also serve to harmonize the practice of trauma surgery within the European Union and to prepare for the UEMS EBSQ trauma surgery.

- Development of a bleed detection algorithm for a novel portable ultrasound device to aid vascular trauma victims2010Aaron Sheng-Chieh Wang.Trauma patients require rapid diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhage. In the hospital, experienced sonographers can reliably diagnose vascular injury using duplex ultrasound. In trauma settings, such as the battlefield, a portable ultrasound device with an automated algorithm to detect bleeding would be useful for medics. Thus, an increasing interest in computer-aided bleed detection led to efforts in quantifying sonographic signatures of abnormalities at the site of vascular injury. However, since trauma patients often present with large areas of injury, there is a need to develop and evaluate bleed detection strategies for ultrasound that more efficiently assess a large vascular tree. The goal of this Ph.D. research dissertation is to address this need. The studies primarily focused on the upper extremity vasculature, specifically the brachial bifurcation, because the leading cause of preventable deaths due to vascular trauma has been exsanguinations from extremity injuries. The overall approach was to characterize normal blood flow with a well-established power law model and identify flows that deviate from the model. The power law states that blood flow is proportional to the vessel diameter raised to a power index k, where k is defined by the bifurcation geometry. A bleed detection metric, called the "flow split deviation" (FSD), was defined to quantify the flow deviations from the power law. Validation of this approach was undertaken in four steps. The first involved demonstrating that the power law model appropriately describes the normal brachial bifurcation and flows in man. The utility of the bleed metric was then evaluated with 3D computational models of bleeds. Finally, the proposed detection algorithm was applied on the early proof of concept humans in arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) of dialysis patients and in in vivo rabbit bleed models. A study with normal human subjects was used to determine that the best-fit k for the brachial bifurcation was 2.75, which is in agreement with other vasculatures previously studied. A k=2.75 power law was then shown to adequately predict forearm blood flows for both resting and exercise physiological states. The correlation coefficient R between predicted and measured normal flows was 0.98. Computational models suggested that FSD was a good indicator of the severity of bleed downstream from the bifurcation. In the patient case study, the bleed metric easily distinguished between normal arms and those with newly placed wrist AVFs, which caused on average an order of magnitude increase in flow deviations. Introduction of different femoral bleed rates in rabbits demonstrated good sensitivity and specificity of the bleed metric when applied to moderate lower extremity bleeds. Bifurcation FSDs can serve as a quantitative signature of bleeding and, moreover, as a strategic way to survey large vascular trees by following abnormal branch points to the likely source of hemorrhage. This approach can complement other quantitative sonographic methods to create a comprehensive, automated, ultrasound-based algorithm for vascular trauma detection.

- 2014 SpringerLeiv M. Hove, Tommy Lindau, Per Hølmer, editors.Distal radial fractures are still puzzling us 200 years after Colles' classic description. Despite the advent of various new imaging techniques, including 3D CT, the availability of diagnostic adjuncts such as arthroscopy, and treatment options that include more than 30 different volar locking plates, the rate of unsatisfactorytreatment resultsremains very high. Furthermore, while we are aware of more associated injuries, such as carpal ligament tears and injuries to the radioulnar ligament (TFCC), there is still intense debate on the relevance of these injuries. This textbook aims to provide the reader with a complete understanding of distal radius fractures, their inherent problems, and how to manage them successfully. It is written by widely published experts from a part of the globe where distal radius fractures are very common, especially during the winter months. Clear guidance is provided on diagnostic imaging, classification, and assessment of fracture instability. The complete spectrum of operative and nonoperative treatment options are then clearly explained with the aid of step-by-step illustrations. Extensive information is also provided on complications and their treatment. Both students and experienced practitioners will find this book to be an enlightening, practice-oriented reference on the management of these challenging fractures.

- 2014 SpringerHans-Jörg Oestern, Otmar Trentz, Selman Uranues, editors.All European countries, including those that have recently joined the European Union or are candidates for membership, currently show a clear trend towards an increasing number of accidental injuries. This holds true for a range of injuries, including accidents among the elderly, sports injuries, and trauma due to traffic accidents. The increase in the number of injuries is accompanied by rising expectations among patients, who anticipate good functional results even after serious injuries. Despite these developments, trauma surgery is not yet established as an independent field in all European countries. Against this background, there is a clear need for a book that covers the state of the art in trauma surgery. This volume, which focuses on basics in trauma surgery is intended to help to meet this need. It will also serve to harmonize the practice of trauma surgery within the European Union and to prepare for the UEMS EBSQ trauma surgery.

- 2012 SpringerYoshiharu Takayama."Lactoferrin was first identified as an iron-binding glycoprotein abundantly found in milk. It has been considered to play important roles in host defense, since lactoferrin shows broad spectrum of anti-bacterial and anti-viral activities, arising from its iron-chelating property. Furthermore, lactoferrin can regulate the function of innate and adaptive immune cells and exhibits immuno-modulating properties. These activities of lactoferrin implicate that potential use of lactoferrin as a wound healing agent. In addition, this book shows that lactoferrin is a potent regulator of dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes, and promotes skin or corneal epithelial wound healing by increasing their proliferation, migration or deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) components such as collagen and hyaluronan. This book provides the scientific background on use of lactoferrin as a wound healing agent. Indeed, lactoferrin exerts its biological effects by binding to specific lactoferrin receptors on target cells. This book also covers the in-depth information on roles of lactoferrin as a signaling molecule."--Publisher's website.
