Tanja Luescher et al examined if the prognostic ability of two cardiac arrest-specific risk scores could be enhanced by measuring neuron-specific enolase (NSE) at different days after a cardiac arrest. The analysis revealed significant improvement in clinical risk scores for outcome prediction in cardiac arrest patients when measuring NSE at day 3; they recommend adding NSE measurement at day 3 to clinical decision making about escalation or withdrawal of therapy in this vulnerable patient population.

The subject of this case report is a 6-month-old boy who presented with what appeared to be severe bilateral congenital hallux valgus. However, an MRI was suggestive of preaxial polydactyly without a supernumerary digit. At 26 months of age, clinical follow-up demonstrated that the deformity had improved and the patient was doing well clinically without intervention. Congenital hallux valgus is an uncommon deformity. This patient demonstrates that the etiology may be incomplete preaxial polydactyly without a supernumerary digit.
