Computed tomographic (CT) cystography has been advocated in lieu of conventional cystography in the initial work-up of patients with suspected urinary bladder trauma. CT cystography was applied to a classification scheme for bladder injury based on the degree of wall injury and anatomic location and demonstrated characteristic imaging features for each type of injury. In bladder contusion (type 1), findings are normal.

When it comes to injuries of the collateral ligament in the metacarpal-phalangeal joint of the thumb, the best results have proved to be obtainable from primary surgery. Secondary ligament surgery according to Strandel, in its modification by B‰uerle and Reill, has its clear-cut indication and ensures restoration of thumb functionality. Arthrodesis is an alternative that should be chosen with generosity.

We report a case of isolated rupture of the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) of the knee while attempting to place the left foot behind the head during yoga practice. The 34-year-old man had discomfort of the lateral aspect of the knee particularly with varus strain. A magnetic resonance image revealed rupture of the LCL at the insertion onto the fibula. The patient had grade-II laxity of the LCL and was treated non-operatively. At the 12-month follow-up, grade-I laxity of the LCL remained clinically evident, but function was not impaired.

Five cases of occlusion of the vertebral artery in context with mechanical stress - from endogene reasons in one case - and lesions of the vessel walls (in three cases) are recorded. The inferior posterior cerebellar artery was involved in all cases. Variable ischemic lesions resulted in the medulla oblongata and in the cerebellum, which were survived up to four weeks in one case. In the others death occurred within few hours or suddenly and unexpectedly. Related neurological symptoms were absent in one case only.
