BACKGROUND: Non-ossifying fibromas (NOFs) are common benign bone lesions found in children and adolescents. They usually involve metaphysis of long bones, tend to gradually disappear with age and usually do not require surgery, while they are not associated with pathological fractures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome and efficacy of a single-stage procedure, comprising curettage of the lesion and calcium sulfate pellet (CaSP) grafting, in skeletally immature patients with large, symptomatic NOF of the lower extremity, and the possible limitations of the procedure...

INTRODUCTION: Radiation exposure from intra-operative fluoroscopy in orthopaedic trauma surgery is a common occupational hazard. References for fluoroscopy use in the operating room for commonly performed operations have not been reported adequately. This study aimed to report appropriate intra-operative fluoroscopy use in orthopaedic trauma and compare the effect of surgery type and surgeon grade on radiation exposure. METHODS: Data on 849 cases over an 18-month period were analysed retrospectively...

PURPOSE: Our previous study reported a good health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients 21 years or more after surgery. The purpose of this study is to investigate midlife changes in HRQOL among AIS patients who passed further 5 years from the previous survey. METHODS: Subjects were 252 individuals who underwent spinal fusion for AIS between 1968 and 1988. The survey was administered twice-in 2009 and in 2014 using Scoliosis Research Society Patient Questionnaire (SRS-22)...

BACKGROUND: Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is often associated with tibial plateau fractures and is a limb-threatening injury. Staged management through fasciotomy with delayed definitive fixation can prevent muscle necrosis and increase limb salvage rates. This procedure opens a large area for potential contamination and infection in the lower extremity. Recent studies have shown an increased risk of infection following fasciotomy and staged management for tibial plateau fractures...

Two-stage revision surgery for infected total knee replacements remains the gold standard treatment. Articulating spacers are preferred to static spacers for improved functional outcome. Articulating spacers made of cement can be prone to fracture, may not be suitable for full weight bearing, create abrasion debris and necessitate second-stage revision surgery. An alternative is the use of primary knee replacement implants as temporary spacers. With this technique, implants are loosely cemented into place at time of revision, allow the patient reasonable mobility and an ability to fully weight bear and can obviate the need for second-stage surgery...

BACKGROUND: Regarding the cup setting in total hip arthroplasty, range of motion and prevention of dislocation are important. From past reports, the wear of the bearing surface may affect long-term results. This study evaluated the stress applied to the bearing surface by the combined use of the three-dimensional rigid spring model and the finite-element analysis. METHODS: For contact pressure distribution of the bearing surface, interference analysis was performed using a three-dimensional rigid body spring model...

BACKGROUND: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is one of the main complications following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). In this study, oral administration of 15 mg edoxaban (a factor Xa inhibitor) once daily for 14 days efficiently prevented the incidence of DVT. Our hypothesis was that prothrombin time-international normalized ratio (PT-INR) on the third postoperative day could predict the incidence of DVT following TKA. METHODS: In this study, 286 subjects were enrolled and divided into two groups according to the presence or absence of DVT...

The assessment of a patient with chronic hip pain can be challenging. The differential diagnosis of intra-articular pathology causing hip pain can be diverse. These includes conditions such as osteoarthritis, fracture, and avascular necrosis, synovitis, loose bodies, labral tears, articular pathology and, femoro-acetabular impingement. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) arthrography of the hip has been widely used now for diagnosis of articular pathology of the hip. A retrospective analysis of 113 patients who had MRI arthrogram and who underwent hip arthroscopy was included in the study...

PURPOSE: Distal femoral periprosthetic fractures above a total knee replacement in elderly patients are technically challenging to treat. Bone quality is often poor, the fractures comminuted, and post-operative mobilisation is difficult. This study assesses the clinical, radiological and functional outcome of revision knee distal femoral replacement (DFR) in these fractures. METHODS: We identified 14 patients over 70 years of age (70-94) who underwent DFR for periprosthetic fractures above a knee replacement...

The technique for application of implants at the sciatic buttress has been well described in the pelvic and acetabular fracture reconstruction literature. We described a new use of the inlet-obturator oblique view for the identification of the anterior inferior iliac spine, which is the entry point of implants, and we provide a detailed fluoroscopic and radiographic description of this view. A small series of 15 patients who underwent an application of an anterior inferior pelvic external (supra-acetabular) fixator via this technique is presented...

Certain athletic activities and lifestyles require a completely stable and very mobile hip. Total hip replacement with a natural femoral head size and two mobile-bearing surfaces (i.e., a "tripolar" prosthesis) is the most stable prosthesis. Elegant design and wear-resistant bearing surfaces are the keys to long-term implant survivorship. The hypothesis is that a ceramic-coated tripolar prosthesis using highly cross-linked polyethylene can provide full function and complete stability with low wear. This study sought to determine: (1) patient-reported outcomes, (2) functional outcomes, (3) implant survivorship and complications, and (4) postoperative sexual limitations...
