A Rare Case of Scapula Neck and Displaced Acromian Fracture

Scapular neck fracture is common among all scapular fractures. Scapular neck fracture along with displaced acromian fracture is rarely seen. Besides there is hardly any literature depicting such scapular fractures. We present a rare case of scapular neck fracture with inferiorly displaced acromian fracture in a young male. The sub-acromian space is reduced by the displaced acromian fragment with impending impingement of sub-acromian structures during shoulder abduction. Expecting a near normal shoulder function acromian fracture was treated by open reduction and internal fixation with plate and screws. With fixation and physiotherapy subacromian space was well maintained and patient achieved near normal shoulder movement and strength.

Knowledge and awareness regarding eye donation among medical and para medical students in a tertiary care hospital in Odisha

India needs around 2,77,000 donations annually to perform 1,00,000 corneal transplants. To enhance the procurement of corneal donations further, raising the level of public education on eye donation was the most important first step. The Govt. of India under the 11th 5-year plan envisages eliminating avoidable blindness completely by 2020.

Screening of gestational diabetes mellitus using fasting plasma glucose before the 24th gestational week in women with different pre-pregnancy body mass index

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is usually diagnosed between 24th and 28th gestational week using the 75-g Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). It is controversial that if FPG ≥92 mg/dL before 24th gestational week should be intervened or not. The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of FPG to screen GDM before 24th gestational week in women with different pre-pregnancy Body Mass Index (BMI).
