Advancing medical science: the Human Body Donation Program
QEII Foundation
It’s the last Friday in June and the pews of Saint Benedict’s Parish in Halifax are filled with people of all ages and walks of life who have one thing in common. Each one of them has come to say a final farewell to a family member or a friend who donated their body for the advancement of medical education and research. The soaring notes of soloist Anita Simmons-Clancy set the tone for a service that included a reading of the names and heartfelt eulogies from university students and a resident physician who benefitted from the body donations via their anatomy labs.

Common gene variants linked to delayed healing of bone fractures
Medical News Today
Slow-healing or non-healing bone fractures in otherwise healthy people may be caused by gene variants that are common in the population, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers. "We found associations between certain gene polymorphisms and delayed fracture healing in a sample of patients," said J. Spence Reid, professor of orthopaedics and rehabilitation. "Our study was preliminary but it demonstrated the feasibility of a larger one, which we're now working to set up." The identification of gene variants that delay fracture healing could lead to screening tests for patients with broken bones.

3-D printing has made strides in orthopedics
MedCity News
Last year, Stuart Williams, the executive director of the Cardiovascular Innovations Institute at the University of Louisville, said the heart would be the easiest organ to bioprint, using a combination of 3-D printing and the patient’s own cells. It’s set a 10-year time frame. As part of a talk at Pennsylvania Bio’s Life Sciences Future conference, Penn State Hershey Medical Center surgeon Randy Haluck offset the excitement around the hey, presto ease of 3D printing organs with the complexities involved with fitting these devices into bodies.

Tulsa World
Dashing after a ball or tumbling off a couch make dogs up to 10 times as likely to get surgery on a key knee ligament that is similar to the one athletes often injure. Playing sports like soccer, basketball or volleyball can lead people to traumatically tear their anterior cruciate ligament, more commonly known as the ACL, during games or practices.

Study: No link found between aspiration of ankle fractures and pain relief
Healio
Level 1 research presented here showed aspiration of acute ankle fractures did not lead to diminished pain or decreased usage of pain medication in patients compared with placebo. “We found no significant differences between aspiration and control groups at any time point. We found no differences in secondary [outcomes],” S. Andrew Sems, MD, said. “Based on this finding, we conclude that aspiration of isolated acute ankle fractures within 24 hours of injury does not provide any measurable clinical benefit and cannot be recommended as a standard adjunctive therapy for ankle fracture.”
