Abstract: Osteosarcoma accounts for 20% of all sarcomas, affects children and young adults, usually originating in lower limb bones
and possibly ending in amputation. The murine models identify the molecular and pathophysiological basis of diseases
and allow the development of new therapies for their treatment. Benzopyrene (BZP) is an aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbon,
reported as a potent cancer inducer. The objective of this work was to standardize a model of bone carcinogenesis

Abstract: Scapula fractures are relatively rare. Those that affect the body of the scapula account for approximately 50% of all scapula fractures. The indication of surgical treatment in the fractures of the body of the scapula is controversial. One of the indications for surgery is the intrathoracic displacement of a bone fragment. Within the low incidence of this complication, homogeneous anatomical patterns always related to high energy trauma have been described.

Abstract: Documentation on medical devices should be mandatory before clinical use, and phased introduction is warranted to avoid unfortunate failures at larger scale.
Abstract: Total knee replacement (TKR) is a common treatment for gonarthrosis and has seen increasing use over the last 20 years. Malalignment of the lower extremity may be not only a cause for gonarthrosis but a precursor for failure of total knee prosthetic components.
