Proximal femoral fractures in adults under 50 years are not as common as in the elderly, but may have just as significant an impact. There is little in the literature describing the functional outcomes of fixation in this age group. Our aim was to assess the clinical and functional outcomes of operative management of extracapsular proximal femoral fractures (AO 31-A) in the young adult (<50 years). Consecutive skeletally mature patients <50 years undergoing operative fixation of these fractures were obtained from a prospective database over a 12-year period...

INTRODUCTION: Supracondylar humerus fractures are the most common fractures of the elbow in children. Many environmental factors such as weather conditions may affect the risk of these fractures. The purpose of the study was to analyze the effect of weather conditions (temperature, rainfall, wind) on fracture risk in children <16 years of age during the extended summer time period with the absence of snow cover. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All children <16 years of age with an outdoor supracondylar humerus fracture between May 1 and September 30 in a defined geographical area during the decade of 2000-2009 were included...

In recent years, with the higher median life expectancy, the number of hip and knee replacements has increased. Clinical examination and morphological studies are essential to evaluate patients with a painful arthroplasty. Nuclear medicine examinations also play an important role, their main usefulness being the exclusion of prosthesis complications. Nevertheless, conventional examinations, namely bone scan and white blood cell scintigraphy, can also identify complications, such as loosening and infection. This study describes the normal and pathologic patterns of a bone scan and exemplifies ten common situations that can cause pain in patients with hip or knee arthroplasty, other than loosening and infection, which can be disclosed on a bone scintigraphy...

In this literature review, the authors analyse the prognostic factors in the curative treatment of scaphoid non-unions. The main negative prognostic factors are smoking, the time elapsed since the fracture, and avascular necrosis of the proximal fragment. If the latter is present, the revascularization by a pedicle or microsurgical bone autograft is probably the treatment of choice. In non-unions without evidence of osteonecrosis, vascularized bone grafts are probably not superior to conventional bone grafts, which can presently be performed under arthroscopic control, with minimal morbidity...

The management of periprosthetic fractures around total hip replacements is a complex and challenging problem. Getting it right first time is an important factor in reducing the morbidity, mortality and financial burden associated with these injuries. Understanding and applying the basic principles of fracture management helps increase the chance of successful treatment. Based on these principles, we suggest a treatment algorithm for managing periprosthetic fractures around polished tapered femoral stems.

Degenerative spondylolisthesis is a common presentation, yet the best surgical treatment continues to be a matter of debate. Interbody fusion is one of a number of options, but its exact role remains ill defined. The aim of this study was to provide a contemporary review of the literature to help determine the role, if any, of interbody fusion in the surgical treatment of degenerative spondylolisthesis. A systematic review of the literature since 2005 was performed. Details on study size, patient age, surgical treatments, levels of slip, patient reported outcome measures, radiographic outcomes, complications and selected utility measures were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Deep wound infection after spinal surgery is a potentially devastating complication and is associated with higher morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. Different measures including intraoperative application of vancomycin powder to wounds have been employed previously to decrease the infection rate. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this ongoing clinical study is to evaluate the systemic uptake of prophylactically applied vancomycin in instrumented spinal fusion surgery...

: The understanding of the anatomic configuration of the fractures of the capitellum has enhanced in the last few years, and the classification of these fractures continues to evolve. It is essential to tailor the surgical approaches to these fractures based on the state-of-the-art classifications. Thirty-three patients with fractures of the capitellum were included in this retrospective study. The mean age of the patients was 37.9 years, and the mean follow-up period was 24.6 months...

PURPOSE: Although there have been many publications regarding the risk factors for implant-associated orthopaedic infections, none have investigated how clinical presentations and epidemiology may differ between infections with and without osteosynthetic material. METHODS: We pooled clinical data from several databases of adult patients with orthopaedic infections hospitalized at Geneva University Hospitals from January 2004 to December 2014. RESULTS: Among 2740 episodes of orthopaedic infections, 76% were implant-free osteoarticular or soft tissue infections...

Femoral shaft fractures in children account for approximately 1.6% of all fractures. These fractures can be treated both operatively and non-operatively. Surgical fixation is more common in the age group above 6 years. Elastic intramedullary nails have become the most popular surgical modality of treatment over the last few decades. However, there is continuous debate about which type of elastic nails (titanium and stainless steel) provides better clinical outcomes with less complication. The main purpose of this study was to systematically search for and critically appraise articles comparing clinical outcomes and complications of titanium elastic nail system (TENS) and stainless steel elastic nail system (SSENS) in management of femoral fractures in the paediatric age group...

BACKGROUND: The description of the measurement technique of the posterior occiput-third cervical spine (OC3) angle-before performing occipitocervical fusion is still controversial. Setting an appropriate alignment in occipitocervical instrumentation is important for successful fixation surgery. Several methods were used for quantifying occipitocervical alignment on the lateral radiograph. This study was performed to describe a measurement technique of OC3 angle and comparing reliability and reproducibility in the measurement of occipitocervical angle with previous method...

PURPOSE: Scaphoid nonunion can occur in both non-operative and operatively treated scaphoid fractures. Without treatment, this can lead to a predictable pattern of carpal collapse and degenerative arthritic change and patients can experience both pain and functional loss in the early and late phases of progression. An operative technique with a high success rate for union is important. This paper describes a technique for treatment of scaphoid nonunion with K-wire fixation and iliac crest cancellous bone graft...

BACKGROUND: Different surgical approaches are currently available to treat knee chondral defects. Microfracture is the most commonly applied, but it often leads to a mechanically inferior fibrocartilaginous tissue. To overcome this shortcoming, the Autologous, Matrix-Induced Chondrogenesis (AMIC) technique has been proposed. To further enhance the outcome of AMIC, the addition of haemoderivatives containing growth factors that stimulate cartilage healing has emerged as a new treatment method...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate a potential risk of intraoperative contamination associated with clothing systems and surgeon's motion in total joint replacement. METHODS: The airborne particle concentrations at different locations around a single operating surgeon wearing standard surgical gown (SG) or modern "space suit" (SS) were compared. The particles in the size of ≥0.5 μm (roughly corresponding to a mean diameter of squamous epithelial cells) were counted at the following three locations: (1) ≈10 cm inferior to the wrist; (2) ≈10 cm posterior to the feet; and (3) near the chest (operative field) under condition either with or without the surgeon's motion (stepping in place at ~1 Hz)...

INTRODUCTION: Femoral neck fracture (FNF) is a devastating injury with serious medical and social consequences. One-third of these patients have some degree of impaired cognitive status. Despite this, a high proportion of hip fracture trials exclude patients with cognitive impairment (CI). We aimed to evaluate whether moderate to severe CI could predict walking ability, quality of life, functional outcome, reoperations and mortality in elderly patients with displaced FNF treated with hemiarthroplasty (HA)...

Scaphoid nonunion represents a challenging problem that leads to disability if neglected. Vascularized bone grafts are proposed to augment the local biology and increase the likelihood of union but long-term outcomes are sparse. In this work, we present the mid- to long-term outcome of 140 scaphoid nonunions managed with vascularized bone grafts from the distal radius. Sixteen patients underwent concomitant closed wedge osteotomy of the distal radius because of arthritic changes. There were 130 males and ten females, with mean time from injury to surgery 3...

Anterior tibial tubercle (ATT) osteotomy facilitates exposure in knee arthroplasty. However, it is not without complications. We have introduced some technical modifications that reduce the surgical aggression by designing a short osteotomy that does not invade the intramedullary canal, and synthesizing it with three cerclage wires with a particular layout that increases the solidity of the system. A retrospective review was performed on the surgical revision of total knee replacement cases intervened in our center that required an ATT osteotomy from February 2014 to February 2015, and who had a minimum clinical follow-up of 12 months...
