Figure 1 A: Case 1 pre-op X-ray; B: Case 1 post-op X-ray. Acromioclavicular dislocation is quiet common with most common mode being direct trauma due to fall on shoulder. Treatment of Rockwood type III acromioclavicular dislocations is still controversial with evidence present in favour of both operative and non-operative interventions  More
  • TITLE: Difference in the Changings of Blood Coagulation Fibrinolysis Markers Before and After Spinal Surgery in Adolescent and Elderly Patients. AIM: The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences in changing of blood coagulation and fibrinolysis markers before and after spinal surgery in adolescent and elderly patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective two-center study enrolled 56 low-risk patients between October 2012 and April 2015. 27 adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients (3 boys, 24 girls; mean age 15 years) underwent instrumentation for posterior fusion. 29 lumbar spinal canal stenosis (LSCS) patients (15 men, 14 women; mean age 71 years) underwent laminectomy for posterior decompression. Plasma levels of soluble fibrin monomer complex (SFMC), D-dimer, and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) were measured at 1 day preoperatively and on postoperative days (PODs) 1, 3, and 7.
