[More] INTRODUCTION: Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), including perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), were detected in the community water supply of Paulsboro New Jersey in 2009.

METHODS: A cross-sectional study enrolled 192 claimants from a class-action lawsuit, not affiliated with this study, who had been awarded a blood test for 13 PFAS. Study participants provided their blood test results and completed a survey about demographics; 105 participants also completed a health survey. Geometric means, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 95th percentiles of exposure of PFNA blood serum concentrations were compared to that of the 2013-2014 NHANES, adjusted for reporting level. Associations between PFNA, PFOA, PFOS, and PFHxS and self-reported health outcomes were assessed using logistic regression.

RESULTS: PFNA serum levels were 285% higher in Paulsboro compared with U.S. residents. PFNA serum levels were higher among older compared with younger, and male compared to female, Paulsboro residents. After adjustment for potential confounding, there was a significant association between increased serum PFNA levels and self-reported high cholesterol (OR: 1.15, 95% CI: 1.02, 1.29).

DISCUSSION/CONCLUSION: Further investigation into possible health effects of PFAS exposure in Paulsboro and other community settings is warranted. Since exposure has ceased, toxicokinetics of PFAS elimination should be explored.

Efficacy and Safety of Tranexamic Acid for Controlling Bleeding During Surgical Treatment of Intertrochanteric Fragility Fracture with Proximal Femoral Nail Anti-rotation: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Authors: Luo, X; He, S; Lin, Z; Li, Z; Huang, C; Li, Q (2019) Indian Journal of Orthopaedics 53:263-269. HERO ID: 5185420

[More] Background: Intertrochanteric fragility fracture (IFF) treated with proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (PFNA) is associated with significant hidden blood loss and high blood transfusion rate. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of tranexamic acid (TXA) in reducing blood loss in these patients.

Materials and Methods: Consecutive eligible patients were recruited and randomly assigned to a TXA group or a control group. The TXA group received 15 mg/kg body weight of TXA intravenously 15 min before incision and the same dose 3 h later. The control group received 100 mL of saline intravenously 15 min before incision. The efficacy outcomes included the total perioperative blood loss, postoperative transfusion rate, postoperative hemoglobin level, and length of the hospital stay. The safety outcomes were the incidence of thrombotic events and the mortality rate within 6 weeks after surgery.

Results: We had 44 patients in the TXA group and 46 patients in the control group for the final analysis. The TXA group had significantly lower total perioperative blood loss than the control group (384.5 ± 366.3 mL vs. 566.2 ± 361.5 mL; P < 0.020). Postoperative transfusion rate was 15.9% in the TXA group versus 36.9% in the control group (P = 0.024). Each group had one patient with postoperative deep venous thrombosis. In the control group, three patients had cerebral infarction, and one patient died within 6 weeks after the operation.

Conclusion: Intravenous TXA is effective in reducing total perioperative blood loss and transfusion rate in IFF treated with PFNA. No increased risk of thrombotic events was observed with the use of TXA; however, this study was underpowered for detecting this outcome. Further research is necessary before TXA can be recommended for high-risk patients.

[More] To analyze the dynamic variation in perioperative hidden blood loss in patients with intertrochanteric fracture. From January to December 2017, 79 patients with intertrochanteric fracture were treated with proximal femoral nail antirotation. Serial complete blood count assays were performed consecutively in the 3 days after admission, on the day of surgery, and 7 days postoperatively. Blood loss during surgery, postoperative drainage, and perioperative blood transfusion volumes were recorded. Dynamic changes in hemoglobin (Hb) prior to surgery were recorded and compared between males and females. Patients were divided into the no blood transfusion group, the 400-mL blood transfusion group, and the 800-mL blood transfusion group depending on the volume of perioperative blood transfusion. Total and hidden blood loss were separately calculated according to the Gross equation. Lowest mean Hb values occurred on day 2 after admission among men (104.8 g/L) and on day 3 after admission among women (98.6 g/L). The average Hb decrease was 11.4 g/L, 11.8 g/L, and 8.9 g/L in the no, 400-mL, and 800-mL blood transfusion groups, respectively. The lowest Hb value occurred on postoperative day 2. Hemoglobin increased on postoperative day 3 and stabilized by day 6. In the no blood transfusion group, the average total blood loss was 406.0 ± 255.6 mL, 628.3 ± 267.2 mL, and 759.7 ± 322.1 mL in the no blood transfusion, 400-mL blood transfusion, and 800-mL blood transfusion groups, respectively, and hidden blood loss was 326.0 ± 246.6 mL, 512.1 ± 247.3 mL, and 596.1 ± 306.9 mL, respectively. Perioperative hidden blood loss occurred prior to surgery for intertrochanteric fracture and ended on postoperative day 2.

Chronic exposure to perfluorononanoic acid impairs spermatogenesis, steroidogenesis and fertility in male mice

[More] Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are widely used in commercial applications and that they are ubiquitous and persistent in the environment. Perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), a member of PFAAs, has been detected in human and wildlife. Previous acute exposure studies have shown the adverse effect of PFNA on the testis. The present study was aimed to examine the effect of chronic PFNA exposure, from prepuberty to adulthood, on testicular functions and fertility in Parkes (P) male mice and to investigate the possible mechanism(s) of its action. PFNA (0.2 and 0.5 mg/kg) was orally administered to P male mice for 90 days from prepuberty (postnatal day [PND] 25) to adulthood (PND 114). Histologically, testes in PFNA-treated mice showed non-uniform degenerative changes in the seminiferous tubules. The treatment also had adverse effects on testicular expression of steroidogenic markers, serum levels of cholesterol and testosterone, sperm parameters and on litter size. A marked increase in the level of lipid peroxidation and decrease in the activities of antioxidant enzymes were observed in the testis of PFNA-treated mice compared to controls. Further, a significant decrease in expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and in the number of PCNA-positive cells, and an increase in expression of caspase-3 were also noted in PFNA-treated mice testis. In conclusion, the results suggest that chronic exposure to PFNA in male mice interferes with testosterone biosynthesis and causes oxidative stress in the testis, leading to alterations in spermatogenesis, sperm quality and fertility potential.

[More] INTRODUCTION: In our study, we analyzed one of the Hungarian population's most frequent injuries, the hip fracture, focusing mainly on the lateral femoral neck and the pertrochanteric fractures. According to the classification of the Swiss Association for Ostheosynthesis (AO), we focused on 31-A1 and 31-A2 fractures, the incidence of which increases by ageing.

METHOD: Between 2010 and 2016, we analyzed the data of 1179 patients. All of the fractures were stabilized with intramedullary nails. 992 patients received Stryker Gamma3®, whereas 187 patients' fractures were solved with Synthes PFNA® nail. In all cases, closed reduction method was used with fluoroscopy on an extension table. The surgeries were done in general or epidural anesthesia and performed by traumatology residents or specialists using standard lateral exploration. Data were collected using GEPACS software and statistical analysis was done with MS Excel.

RESULTS: Cut-out occurred in 33 cases (2,79%): out of that 21 (1.78%) were left sided and 12 were (1,01%) right sided. 29 (87.87%) patients were treated with Gamma3 nail, and in 4 (12,12%) cases PFNA nail was used. The average TAD-index was 18 mm.

CONCLUSION: According to recommendations of the TAD-index value, when using dynamic hip screw, it should be 20 mm or lower. The average index value was 18 mm which was equal in the complicated and non-complicated groups. Our study shows that the cut-out is independent from the TAD-index value, thus this recommendation cannot be applied for intramedullary nails. Orv Hetil. 2019; 160(9): 338-342.
