Isolated Tear of the Distal Biceps Femoris Tendon in a Young Elite Australian Rules Football Player

In Sun Na, Stuart Down and Scott Hancock

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 16, 2021

Isolated tear of the distal biceps femoris tendon is rare in athletes. A recent systematic review identified only a total of 22 athletes with such injuries. More specifically, only one previously reported case in an athlete outlined a tear localised to the distal tendon, as opposed to the more commonly documented myotendinous junction. Most of these injuries were treated surgically (n = 20/22) with mean (± SD) overall time to return to sport of 4.9 +/- 3.3 months. This study presents a rare cas...

Intraoral Tissue Expander: Tissue Augmentation for Deficient Alveolar Ridge by Mechanotransduction - A Systematic Review of Literature

Raghavendra S Medikeri, Marisca A Pereira and Manjushri Waingade

Article Type: Systematic Review | First Published: December 31, 2020

Rehabilitation of edentulous ridges with implants is becoming so popular. However, it becomes onerous for a dentist to place implants in severely resorbed ridges which requires tension free primary wound closure. Instead of using invasive and extremely tedious methods to augment soft tissue, an intra-oral soft tissue expander is an ideal option. Soft tissue expander can be used as a very effective treatment option for increasing the soft tissue volume before ridge augmentation. There are insuffi...

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 16, 2021

We describe a case of Vagococcus fluvialis infective endocarditis with associated aortic root abscess in a 50-year-old male on his second bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement. Only two cases of Vagococcus endocarditis have been recorded to our knowledge, and this case reinforces the fulminant nature of a rare organism. A 50-year-old male presented to our emergency department with 4 weeks of a traumatic back and neck pain with associated night sweats and anorexia. He had a history of intravenou...
