1/3. bone morphogenetic proteins in orthopaedic trauma: recent clinical findings with human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2).

    This article introduces papers based on presentations from a symposium entitled "Bone Morphogenic Protein Advisory Meeting in Orthopaedic Trauma", where recent clinical findings with human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) were reviewed. It also presents two case studies which illustrate the clinical problems with the potential morbidity of tibial fractures and the potential benefits of the use of rhBMP-2 at surgery. The article concludes with a summary of the symposium.Tibial shaft fracture repair is associated with a significant financial burden on the patient, the health care providers and the medical insurance companies. It is anticipated that the clinical advantages of rhBMP-2 could lead to cost savings both inside and outside the hospital setting.

2/3. Women and reproductive-related trauma.

    Women are at higher risk for developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) than men, leading to significant psychosocial burden and healthcare-related costs. research has shown an association between the negative impact of traumatic experiences and the reproductive life cycle in women. pregnant women with a history of abuse/trauma frequently report intrusive reemergence of symptoms. Women who experience miscarriage may present with even higher prevalence rates of PTSD symptoms. Both psychologic and physiologic factors are believed to be relevant to the development of peripartum posttraumatic stress symptoms. Much less is known, however, about treatment. A case series of patients who presented with PTSD symptoms in the context of reproductive-related traumatic events (e.g., miscarriage, stillbirth) or who experienced reemergence of symptoms during pregnancy is presented, including treatment strategies.

3/3. False indications of an actinide lung burden arising from a contaminated finger wound.

    This paper presents the results of in vivo measurements on a worker from a fuel reprocessing plant who was involved in an actinide intake. The results revealed that false indications of an actinide lung burden could arise from a contaminant present elsewhere in the chest region. Consequently, it is important that lung monitoring programs for occupational workers handling actinides are conducted with this caution in mind and that due consideration is given even in cases of minor cuts/wounds in order to rule out substantial overestimation of internal radiation doses.
