BY Sumant G. Krishnan, Robert J. Nowinski, Donnis Harrison and Wayne Z. Burkhead
Investigation performed at the Shoulder and Elbow Service, The Carrell Clinic, Dallas, Texas

Background: Biologic glenoid resurfacing was developed in 1988 as an alternative to total shoulder arthroplasty in selected (usually younger) patients with primary, posttraumatic, or postreconstructive glenohumeral arthritis. A vari- ety of biologic surfaces, including anterior capsule, autogenous fascia lata, and Achilles tendon allograft, have been combined with a humeral hemiarthroplasty.

logo November 8, 2007: Illustrations created for Kyphon Technique Guide

More illustrations are created for Kyphon’s Balloon Kyphoplasty Technique Guide, with the aid of Fairman Studios expertise. Balloon kyphoplasty has been shown to benefit patients with osteoporotic or cancer-induced VCF. Pain, functional and radiographic outcomes of care have been shown to be statistically superior to conventional non-surgical management. The procedure has been shown to significantly improve patient quality of life and ability to perform activities of daily living, as well as reduce the number of days lost to bedrest. Balloon kyphoplasty is a percutaneous procedure that can be performed inpatient or outpatient with little or no postoperative rehabilitation necessary. Patient satisfaction with the technique is excellent with little, if any, procedural discomfort. Balloon kyphoplasty has an excellent safety profile, with most studies demonstrating a very low rate of procedure-related adverse events. As of June 30, 2007 approximately 340,000 patients and 400,000 spinal fractures worldwide have been treated with balloon kyphoplasty.

logo October 23, 2007: UCompare Healthcare renews its need for didactic patient education illustration on About.com. UComparehealthCare (UCHC) helps people make better decisions about their healthcare choices. Their free reports help patients find, research and compare hospitals, nursing homes and doctors. They also provide products and services for businesses, insurers, healthcare providers and hospitals. UCHC provides dynamic Web-based interactive tools to consumers, businesses, insurers, healthcare providers, and hospitals allowing them to measure the quality of healthcare services available. It is not their goal to “rate” or “grade” physicians, hospitals, and nursing homes. Instead, we allow the user to select information based on personal and specific interests, then we present the data in a visually descriptive manner through annotated charts and graphs for ease of interpretation. Fairman Studios has added to their Decision Assistant tool by providing medical illustrations that guide patients within various disease areas. The Decision Assistant lists descriptions of selected medical conditions and procedures, and related healthcare quality measures, pertaining to the nervous system. A patient can learn about each condition and procedure and the measures available to compare hospital quality for each by clicking on that term. Patients can find out how hospitals they may be considering perform for these measures in the UCHC Hospital Comparison Reports. The quality measures described include Inpatient Quality Indicators (IQIs), which reflect the quality of care given for a given procedure or condition in each hospital, and Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs), which take into account adverse events that patients experience as a result of treatment for any condition at the given hospital.
logo October 16, 2007: Species in Space

What do fruit flies, mice, ants, monkeys, and a dog named Laika have in common? They were all first to go into space before human beings. Before humans actually went into space, one of the prevailing theories of the perils of space flight was that humans might not be able to survive long periods of weightlessness. For several years, there had been a serious debate among scientists about the effects of prolonged weightlessness. American and Russian scientists utilized animals – mainly monkeys, chimps and dogs – in order to test each country’s ability to launch a living organism into space and bring it back alive and unharmed. To commemmorate these brave animals, medical illustrators from the Department of Art as Applied to Medcine illustrated a poster depicting many of these first space explorers. This poster will be on board a February 14th, 2008 launch where it will be stamped and brought back to earth as a memorial for all those species who explored space before man.

logo October 13, 2007: Illustrations created for Orthopaedic Surgery book chapter on Osteochondral Allografts in conjuction with Hospital for Special Surgery

With the inability of articular cartilage to heal even the smallest defect, treatment of articular cartilage injury in the young, active patient remains a challenge. These lesions demonstrate limited healing potential, with full thickness cartilage lesions healing with both type I and II cartilage, and lower than normal concentrations of proteoglycans. The formation of structurally inferior fibrocartilage leads to premature irregularities of the joint surface over time, meniscal tears, and eventually, degenerative arthritis. Many treatment methods are available to treat focal cartilage defects, including lavage, microfracture, autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI), mosiacplasty, and osteochondral allograft transplantation. Osteochondral allografts have the advantage of providing a structurally mature articular cartilage matrix with viable chondrocytes. Osteochondral allografts also have no size limitations, no host donor site morbidity, and can be used to restore joint congruity in the absence of subchondral bone. The surgical technique is demanding, but offers promising clinical results. These procedures are being illustrated by Fairman Studios.

logo October 4, 2007: Medical Illustration: The Art of Communicating Science presented at MICA

3pm Brown 320: The JHU Medical Illustration program brought to the Maryland Institute of Art campus Jennifer Fairman, Assistant Professor in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine at John Hopkins University, School of Medicine. This program was a tremendous success! More than 78 students attended this session to learn about how art meets science in this fascinating career path. Jennifer Fairman gave a detailed talk about her process of becoming a medical illustrator and how she pursued science and art while an undergraduate student at the University of Maryland at College Park. Jennifer’s talk revealed the many areas where medical illustration is utilized from “web sites, annual reports, surgical and science textbooks, advertisements, medical journals, anatomical charts, and patient education materials.” Students who are interested to learn more about this career path, can stop by career development at 1210 Mount Royal for program information sheets. This wonderful program was organized by Julie LeSuer.

By Goo Hyun Baek, MD, Hyun Sik Gong, MD, Moon Sang Chung, MD, Joo Han Oh, MD, Young Ho Lee, MD, and Sang Ki Lee, MD
Investigation performed at the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea

Background: The Bilhaut-Cloquet operation is a combined surgical procedure for the treatment of a symmetric bifid thumb. Although this procedure can obtain a normal-sized thumb with a stable interphalangeal joint, it has limita- tions, such as the technical difficulty of combining all segments of a duplicated thumb, possible later physeal growth arrest, joint stiffness, and nail-plate deformity. We reviewed the results of our modification of this procedure for the treatment of Wassel type-II and III polydactyly of the thumb.

Fairman Studios is working with EuroRSCG to illustrate an educational clinical poster about the use of Atropen. ATROPINE (Atropen®) auto-injection can help treat many emergency conditions. For example, administration of atropine can help treat certain symptoms (such as low heart rate, breathing problems, excess saliva) related to insecticide, nerve gas or mushroom poisoning. Generic atropine auto-injections are available for adults; however, the generic form of the auto-injector for children is not yet available.

logo October 1, 2007: Orthopaedic Illustrations being completed for Sean Nork

Dr. Sean Nork is an orthopaedic traumatologists who specializes in nonunions and malunions. Fairman Studios is assisting Dr. Nork in developing illustrations for an upcoming paper on a surgical approach around the ankle joint. Nork is a UW associate professors of orthopaedics and sports medicine and have vast experience in the area, treating hundreds of these types of cases each year. According to the physicians, fractured fragments may not heal correctly for a variety of reasons and may cause a nonunion. If union occurs in a displaced location (malunion), chronic medical issues may result due to bone length inequality among other problems. If the fracture heals in a good location, the patient may have few symptoms as a result.

logo October 2007: Genetic Journey Honored in the NSF International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge

Some of science’s most powerful statements are not made in words. From the diagrams of Leonardo to Hooke’s microscopic bestiary, the beaks of Darwin’s finches, Rosalind Franklin’s x-rays or the latest photographic marvels retrieved from the remotest galactic outback, visualization of research has a long and literally illustrious history. To illustrate is, etymologically and actually, to enlighten. To the general public, whose support sustains the global research enterprise, these and scores of other indispensable concepts exist chiefly as images. They become part of the essential iconic lexicon. And they serve as a source of excitement and motivation for the next generation of researchers. The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science created the Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge to celebrate that grand tradition-and to encourage its continued growth. In a world where science literacy is dismayingly rare, illustrations provide the most immediate and influential connection between scientists and other citizens, and the best hope for nurturing popular interest. Judges appointed by the NSF and Science selected winners in each of five categories: photographs, illustrations, informational graphics, interactive media and non-interactive media. In the Information Graphics Category the spread entitled The Genetic Journey: Following DNA form Cell to Society was awarded a Semifinalist Honor in the 2007 NSF International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. This competition recognizes outstanding achievements by scientists, engineers, visualization specialists, and artists who are innovators in the use of visual media to promote understandingof research results and scientific phenomena.

Lynn Masterson had her gallbladder removed through her mouth, a promising technique for patients who can’t tolerate an abdominal incision. Surgeon Lee Swanstrom of the Oregon Clinic removed Lynn Masterson’s gallbladder through her mouth. For Masterson and others in his first group of patients, Swanstrom also made two tiny incisions in her abdomen through which he could monitor what was going on. The goal, though, is surgery with no abdominal incisions. This article was illustrated for USA Today by Jennifer E.

logo July 29 2007: Chronic venous insufficiency and peripheral artery disease – Cover Art for August JAAPA issue The August issue of JAAPA will feature an article on Chronic venous insufficiency and peripheral artery disease, illustrated on the cover. CVI and PAD: A review of venous and arterial disease: Two prevalent vascular conditions affecting many Americans are chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). These diseases are associated with significant morbidity and mortality, and they may indicate the presence of other serious vascular conditions. People with CVI and PAD experience a decreased quality of life due to pain and disability. These conditions often result in a loss of the ability to perform activities of daily living. CVI and PAD have different mechanisms of action. Clinicians should understand this and be familiar with the signs and symptoms of each condition. A thorough history and physical examination will give clues as to whether the patient’s problem is of venous or arterial nature. For each condition, both medical and surgical treatment options are available. Patients also can make important lifestyle modifications that will slow disease progression. Underdiagnosis in primary care can be a barrier to secondary prevention, which is known to decrease morbidity and mortality; clinicians need to be aware of these conditions and be able to identify those patients at risk.

Asthmatx Inc. designs, develops and manufactures catheter based medical devices incorporating thermal energy for a variety of indications. Asthmatx has developed the Alair® System, which consists of a single-use device and a controller that delivers radiofrequency energy during an investigative outpatient bronchoscopic procedure known as Bronchial Thermoplasty. The Alair® System provides a different investigational treatment approach for severe asthma that uses radiofrequency energy to apply controlled heat to the airway wall to reduce the amount of airway smooth muscle and restrict its ability to narrow the airway. Bronchial Thermoplasty has been shown to reduce the narrowing of airway passages in response to bronchoconstrictors, and may potentially improve asthma symptoms in patients with this condition. Asthmatx is currently conducting a pivotal study investigation to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Alair® System for the treatment of severe asthma. Fairman Studios has created illustrations for Asthmatx to show this process.
