  Proximal Humerus Fractures   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Proximal humerus fractures have been reported to account for about 5% of all fractures.
Hence, a proximal humerus fractures may be called 2-part, 3-part, or 4-part according to the Neer classification system, depending upon the amount of displacement and angulation seen on x-ray.
The incidence of neurologic injuries associated with proximal humerus fractures is high (59% for nondisplaced fractures, but as high as 82% if the fracture was displaced, according to Visser et al.).

 Fractures of the Proximal Femur (hip)
In younger patients, proximal femoral fractures are usually the result of high-energy physical trauma (e.g., high-speed motor vehicle accidents) and usually occur in the absence of disease.
Proximal femoral fractures in elderly patients are often pathologic, usually resulting from minimal-to-moderate physical trauma to areas of bone significantly affected by osteoporosis.
Optimally, the end of the lag screw should be placed in close proximity to the apex of the femoral head so that the sum of the distances between the end of the screw and the apex of the femoral head in the AP and lateral views is less than 20 to 25 mm.

 Proximal tubule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Agonal resorption of the contents of the proximal tubular contents after interruption of circulation in the capillaries surrounding the tubule often leads to disturbance of the cellular morphology of the proximal tubule cells, including the ejection of cell nuclei into the tubule lumen.
In relation to the morphology of the kidney as a whole, the convoluted segments of the proximal tubules are confined entirely to the cortex.

Proximal renal tubular acidosis (Type II RTA) is a result of?poor bicarbonate reabsorption by the proximal tubules.

 Distal Hyperplastic Polyps and Proximal Hyperplasia - September 15, 2003 - American Family Physician
The association between distal and proximal colorectal adenomas is undefined, and no preventive guidelines explicitly recommend colonoscopic examination for proximal lesions when a distal adenoma is found on sigmoidoscopic examination.
In the screening studies, proximal neoplasia was present in 16 percent of persons with no distal polyps, in 25 percent of those with distal hyperplastic polyps, and in 36 percent of those with distal adenomatous polyps.
The risk of proximal neoplasia associated with distal hyperplastic polyps was lower in asymptomatic persons who underwent colonoscopy after screening sigmoidoscopy compared with those who underwent diagnostic colonoscopy for symptoms or risk factors for colorectal neoplasia.

 XQL and Proximal Nodes
The Proximal Nodes model suggests an implementation where an index is built on the structure of the text separated from the normal index for the text content.
Note that this violates the condition of Proximal Nodes model: the fact that a book qualifies or not cannot be determined considering the text areas of the titles of the books, but one needs to compare the content of the titles with those found in the bibliography of the other book.
Despite that this cannot be solved by a text index, the Proximal Nodes model can coexist with many independent context indexes, and therefore a different index able to answer such questions could be built on the numerical values found in the text and it could gracefully coexist with the rest of the system.

 Fractures of the Proximal Fifth Metatarsal - May 1, 1999 - American Academy of Family Physicians
Fractures of the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal may be classified as avulsions of the tuberosity or fractures of the shaft within 1.5 cm of the tuberosity.
Although most fractures of the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal respond well to appropriate management, delayed union, muscle atrophy and chronic pain may be long-term complications.
Uncomplicated avulsion fractures of the tuberosity are the most common fractures of the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal and generally heal well with conservative treatment.

 The Proximal User Interface
The distal tool demands and absorbs the user's attention as s/he handles it; the proximal tool does not, but allows the user to concentrate on the real task for which the tool is being used.
The proximal user interface is one that has so much become part of you that you are not aware of using a user interface, but you just get on with the task you are engaged in.
Drag and drop for such purposes is proximal in that there is a direct mapping between the lexical actions and the semantic.

 The Proximal Shift in the Distribution of Colon Cancer Is Independent of Age and Gender, Frank Friedenberg, Angel ...
A study involving an indigent population in Florida demonstrated that the percentage of proximal neoplasms in African Americans was 53% vs 40% for whites over a 27-year period beginning in the 1960s.
Although there was a substantial proximal migration of benign polyps when comparing the time periods of 1979 to 1983 with 1995 to 1996, there was no identified shift in the subsite distribution of adenocarcinomas.
Although understanding of the molecular changes that take place and the ability to screen this population improve, individuals with proximal neoplasms represent a small segment of the population of patients with colon cancer and improved diagnosis is unlikely to impact overall trends substantially.

Although the use of nerve transection with transposition of the proximal stump into adjacent muscle has been described with limited results, to our knowledge there have been no studies examining transection with transposition of the proximal stump into bone.
Conclusions/Significance: For symptomatic superficial peroneal neuromas, the results of neurotomy with transposition of the proximal nerve stump into bone are significantly superior to those of neurotomy with transposition of the proximal stump into muscle.
Of those 27 patients, the first 16 (group A) were treated with transection and burial of the proximal stump into the peroneal musculature.

 Anatomical terms of location - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These terms can also be used relatively to organs, for example the proximal end of the urethra is attached to the bladder.
For example, whilst the pleura is a single structure, for convenience the term "visceral pleura" is used to refer to that part attached to the outer surface of the lung, and "parietal pleura" to refer to that part attached to the inside of the chest wall.
In the limbs of most animals, the terms cranial and caudal are used in the regions proximal to the carpus (the wrist, in the forelimb) and the tarsus (the ankle in the hindlimb).

 Proximal Follicle Fully Developed
Note how the proximate follicle is not egg shaped and how clear areas are present within the follicle.
Determining whether the most proximal follicle is fully developed is useful for separating the nulliparous stages as well as determining if the ovaries are nonfunctioning or degenerate.
To determine if the most proximal follicle is fully developed, first locate the ovariole and trace its length until it meets with the lateral oviducts (see section on Reproductive System Morphology).

 eMedicine - Proximal Humerus Fractures : Article Excerpt by: Mark Frankle, MD
Also in the 1950s, humeral head replacement for severely displaced fractures of the proximal humerus was being introduced.
Therefore, fractures that involve the proximal humerus (that portion involved with the glenohumeral articulation) can be devastating to quality of life.
Pathophysiology: The bone quality of the proximal humerus also must be taken into account while attempting to anatomically reduce the tuberosity fragments.
