PURPOSE: Antibiotic-loaded acrylic cement (ALAC) spacers are useful for treatment of infected prostheses in the course of a two-stage revision. Spacers are handmade or are made using a commercial template, with reportedly good treatment outcomes. This study aimed to confirm the usefulness of custom-made ALAC spacers shaped like bipolar hip prostheses using a dental silicone template for treatment of infected hip prostheses, and described their manufacture. METHODS: This study evaluated 10 patients who underwent two-stage revision for treatment of infected hip prostheses...

Medial knee osteoarthritis on angular varus deformity of a lower limb is very common. Open-wedge high tibial osteotomy is a treatment of choice if cartilage is not excessively worn (Allback 1 or 2). The technique based on a plate fixation and the bone defect filled with calcium phosphate cement is thoroughly described. Data at 1, 3, 6 months and 1 year of a 19 cases continuous and prospective series are collected and analysed. Mean age at the time of operation was 55 years. The average preoperative varus deformity was 5° and corrected to an average postoperative valgus of 4° (range 3°-6°)...

INTRODUCTION: High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is an operation used to treat patients with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. The United Kingdom Knee Osteotomy Registry (UKKOR) has been set up to gather contemporaneous data on HTO throughout the patient journey. UKKOR uses a variety of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) to gauge the surgical outcome. AIM: The aim of this review is to analyse the published literature that has used PROMs to assess the outcomes following HTO...

A new surgical method is introduced offering a less invasive approach to reattach the medial retinaculum following acute patellar dislocation. This retrospective analysis comprised 12 cases of medial retinacular repair in 10 patients. The surgical technique achieved reinforced reattachment of the torn region of the medial retinaculum for improved patellar support and stabilization. During follow-up, no recurrent patellar dislocations occurred, except where one patient reported a subjective feeling of patellar dislocation...

OBJECTIVE: Gap planning in navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a critical concern. Osteophytes are normally removed prior to gap planning, with the exception of posterior condylar osteophytes of the femur, which are removed after posterior condylar resection. This study investigated how posterior condylar osteophytes affect gap balancing during surgery. METHODS: This prospective study was conducted on 40 primary varus osteoarthritic knees with a posterior condylar osteophyte that underwent TKA navigation...

REVIEW
Jean-Yves Jenny
The exact indication for a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) remains debated. Minimally invasive techniques have been developed to decrease the surgical trauma related to the prosthesis implantation, and this technique is well fitted to UKA. However, there are concerns about loss of accuracy with minimally invasive techniques. Furthermore, rapid recovery techniques have been developed in order to reduce the length of hospital stay. Again, UKA is well fitted to these new developments of postoperative care...

The term atypical femoral fractures most commonly occur in the subtrochanteric area. Concerns exist regarding the role of bisphosphonate treatment in their aetiology. Which surgical intervention provides the best outcome remains contentious. We reviewed all atypical subtrochanteric femoral fractures treated in Northern Ireland over 5 years, specifically investigating incidence, prodromal symptoms, association with bisphosphonates and optimal fixation methods. All subtrochanteric fractures treated in the region were identified and reviewed for atypical features...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative pain is one of the issues that concern most patients after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Periarticular multimodal drug injection and single anesthetic agent injection have been shown to effectively reduce postoperative pain. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy between multimodal drug injection and single anesthetic drug injection in controlling pain after TKA using a double-blinded randomized controlled trial. METHODS: Sixty-four osteoarthritic patients who underwent primary TKA were randomized into two groups...

The aim of this study was to identify pre-operative and intra-operative factors that are predictive of dislocation following primary total hip replacement (THR). Data were prospectively collected for a consecutive series of 4334 THRs undertaken over a 14-year period. Ninety-eight (2.3%) of the 4334 patients had one or more dislocation post-operatively. A body mass index (BMI) of ≥ 35 (p < 0.001), a Harris Hip Score (HHS) of ≤ 41 (p < 0.001) and a low-volume surgeon (p < 0.001), which was defined as performing fewer than 43 THRs per annum, were identified as independent predictors of dislocation using logistic regression analysis...

INTRODUCTION: Secondary repair of flexor tendon injuries remain a challenging procedure for hand surgeons. Usually, secondary reconstruction should be performed by staged approach. When the tendon and pulley integrity are intact, tenolysis may be the first surgical option. One-/two-stage tendon grafts are suggested when the integrity of flexor tendon is compromised. Active tendon implants (Brunelli prostheses) may represent an efficient option in patients with a poor prognosis, as well as whenever classical techniques fail...
