Wednesday 10 November He had multiple fractures to the skull and the right side was shattered. Dr Alan Williams counted 22 bruises, splits and grazes on James’s face and head, and 20 more wounds on his body. The prosecution at Preston Crown Court claims the accused boys – who deny all charges – attacked him on 12 February at a railway embankment in Walton, Liverpool. It claims they knew they were doing wrong and intended to cause James serious injury. Dr Williams said that post- mortem examinations revealed that James had been struck by at least 30 blows, and he had endured ‘a short period of survival’ after the attack. James was dead before a train severed his body. Dr Williams speculated on how James suffered so many injuries, so many that none could be isolated as the fatal blow. The deep bruising, the cut on his forehead down to the skull and the damage to the back of the head together with many other injuries suggested bricks and an iron bar had been used, Dr Williams said. Earlier, the court had admitted as exhibits a catalogue of debris found around the body.
Fractures and Skeletal Injuries
However, only 22 patients most with casts underwent radiography between 7 and 14 days after the injury. The earliest radiographs appear to have been obtained 7 days after the injury. Periosteal reaction was evident in all 33 patients imaged 4 weeks after injury. No increase in fracture margin sclerosis was seen after 11 weeks.

Here we look at eight impressive but terrifying cases of ancient surgery, from rhinoplasty to leg surgery, dental implants, and brain surgery, in some cases dating back an incredible 11, years. Practice of Drilling Holes in the Cranium Found in Dozens of Skulls in Peru In , archaeologists excavating burial caves in the south-central Andean province of Andahuaylas in Peru discovered the remains of 32 individuals dating back between and years and, incredibly, they found evidence of 45 separate surgical procedures on the skulls of the individuals.
Cranial surgery, known as trephination, is one of the first ever surgical practices and is known to have begun in the Neolithic era. It involves drilling a hole in the skull of a living person to cure illness such as convulsions, headaches, infections or fractures. The skulls found in Peru show evidence that sections of the cranium were removed using a hand drill or a scraping tool.
Some of the remains showed evidence of their hair having been shaved and a herbal remedy placed over the wound, which all point to the fact that this was an attempt to heal sick or injured individuals. It is still unknown what anesthetic, if any, was used to dull the pain during the surgery. The researchers believe the surgeries were carried out using the same principles as those found in the Hippocratic Corpus, which requires strict adherence to medical ethics and techniques.
Hippocrates wrote the oath around B. The ancient doctor or doctors who performed the surgeries did them at a location on the skull that minimized damage to the brain and assured longer survival.
What makes us human? Where do we come from? Ever since Darwin put forward the idea that we evolved from apes, scientists have wondered about those first creatures that left the ape world and crossed into ours. In the last 50 years, fossil finds have filled in some of the many blanks in the story of our evolution, but the bones of our ancestors are few and far between, allowing only glimpses of how we slowly changed, over millions of years, from ape to human. Now, in South Africa, in caves dangerously deep underground, two new species of hominin, our human ancestors, have been found.
There it was, right there, one of the most spectacular early hominins ever discovered, lying on the surface of a cave.

But as the complainant lay on the ground Foyaz Miah, who had earlier been arguing with door staff, kicked him in the head causing one of the fractures to his face. Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday how Miah then ran off, but he returned to the scene and knocked over a woman who was trying to help Mr Imeson. Miss Strange told the court how the brothers had been out with friends when off-duty officer, Tony Imeson, tried to calm the situation between Miah and the door staff.
But Miah became aggressive towards the off-duty officer and another unknown male then punched Tony Imeson from behind. As a result of the attack Stephen Imeson suffered two facial fractures and a fracture to the skull which meant he had to stay in hospital for more than two weeks. The married complainant said he was off work for four months, had been seeing an occupational therapist and now had reduced vision in his right eye.
Miah, of Mill Street, Bradford, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm on the basis that he was responsible for one of the facial fractures.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email A group of people attempting to prove the innocence of a convicted baby murderer from Cornwall has published what is said to be his version of her tragic death from prison. Matthew Scully-Hicks, a year-old fitness instructor from Delabole, was given a life sentence in November for brutally murdering his month-old adoptive daughter Elsie.
The court heard how the defenceless toddler had a catalogue of injuries in the months leading up to her death – including a broken leg, bruising to her head, broken ribs and the final catastrophic fractured skull which led to her death. Despite Scully-Hicks being found guilty unanimously by the jury, some of his friends have decided they will take action to tray and overturn the verdict.
The Scully-Hicks Innocence Project SHIProject was set up earlier this month, dedicated to the release of the man who will have to serve a minimum of 18 years in jail for inflicting serious injuries on Elsie. The toddler died in May and Scully-Hicks has always claimed he did not commit the horrific murder. Daily Mirror During four weeks, the jury heard how a house “filled with love” turned into the scene of fatal anger. Now, the SHIProject is claiming that Scully-Hicks was “falsely convicted” for Elsie’s murder and is working towards the man’s chance to appeal.
Hannah Scarr, from the project, grew up with him and attended the same school. In reality everyone who has ever met Matthew have only lovely things to say about him. Press Association Between November of that year and May when she died, Elsie suffered a fracture to her right leg, sustained a bruise to the lefthand side of her forehead, another bruise to her head and a squint in her left eye and a lethal skull injury.

Mental Illness History Of Mental Illness Mental Health History Of Science Human History Psychology The limitlessly varied personalities of human beings have fascinated both scientists and fellow members of society throughout the existence of humankind. Attempts to treat mental illness date back as early as BCE as evidenced by the discovery of trephined skulls in regions that were home to ancient world cultures Porter Early man widely believed that mental illness was the result of supernatural phenomena such as spiritual or demonic possession, sorcery, the evil eye, or an angry deity and so responded with equally mystical, and sometimes brutal, treatments.
Trephining also referred to as trepanning first occurred in Neolithic times. During this procedure, a hole, or trephine, was chipped into the skull using crude stone instruments. Some who underwent this procedure survived and may have lived for many years afterward as trephined skulls of primitive humans show signs of healing. Pressure on the brain may have also incidentally been relieved Butcher In ancient Mesopotamia, priest-doctors treated the mentally ill with magico-religious rituals as mental pathology was believed to mask demonic possession Alexander Exorcisms, incantations, prayer, atonement, and other various mystical rituals were used to drive out the evil spirit.

Structure[ edit ] Cross-section of bone Bone is not uniformly solid, but includes a tough matrix. Its matrix is mostly made up of a composite material incorporating the inorganic mineral calcium phosphate in the chemical arrangement termed calcium hydroxylapatite this is the bone mineral that gives bones their rigidity and collagen , an elastic protein which improves fracture resistance.
When these cells become entrapped from osteoblasts they become osteocytes.

Prevention A skull fracture is any break in the cranial bone, also known as the skull. There are many types of skull fractures, but only one major cause: However, symptoms that can indicate a fracture include: Pain medication may be the only treatment necessary in mild fractures , while neurosurgery may be required for more serious injuries. Types Types of skull fractures The type of skull fracture depends on the force of the blow, the location of the impact on the skull, and the shape of the object making impact with the head.
A pointier object is more likely to penetrate the skull than a hard, blunt surface, such as the ground. Different types of fractures lead to differing levels of injury and trauma. See a body map of the skull. Open fracture Also known as a compound fracture, an open fracture occurs when the skin is broken and the bone emerges. Depressed facture This refers to a fracture that causes the skull to indent or extend into the brain cavity.
Recently, large population-based studies have been used to estimate the incidence of inflicted skeletal trauma. Additional Recommended Reading Coats, B. Potential for head injuries from low-height falls:

Hieroglyphic interpretation of Cases 47 and Wilkins’ permission from Journal of Neurosurgery, March , pages The seventeen columns on the recto comprise part of a surgical treatise, the first thus far discovered in the ancient Orient, whether in Egypt or Asia. It is therefore the oldest known surgical treatise. This surgical treatise consists exclusively of cases, not recipes.
The treatise is systematically organized in an arrangement of cases, which begin with injuries of the head and proceed downward through the body, like a modern treatise on anatomy.
