The purpose of the study was to assess accuracy and repeatability of a noninvasive navigated (NIN) measurement of the lower limb axes by comparison with the conventional, invasive navigated (IN) technique. The tested hypothesis was that NIN measure will significantly differ from IN measure when performed on a supine patient under general anesthesia just prior to knee arthroplasty. The accuracy study involved 20 cases. The following measures were performed with both systems: maximal extension angle, coronal mechanical femoro-tibial angle at the previously assessed maximal extension angle, coronal mechanical femoro-tibial angle at 30° of knee flexion...

Microsurgery is a term used to describe the surgical techniques that require an operating microscope and the necessary specialized instrumentation, the three "Ms" of Microsurgery (microscope, microinstruments and microsutures). Over the years, the crucial factor that transformed the notion of microsurgery itself was the anastomosis of successively smaller blood vessels and nerves that have allowed transfer of tissue from one part of the body to another and re-attachment of severed parts. Currently, with obtained experience, microsurgical techniques are used by several surgical specialties such as general surgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, gynecology, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery and more...

Tools designed to predict patient satisfaction following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have the potential to guide patient selection. Our study aimed to validate a model that predicts patient satisfaction following TKA. Phone surveys were administered to 203 patients who underwent TKA between 2009 and 2016 at the University of Illinois. We utilized health records to document age, gender, body mass index (BMI), and comorbidities. First, we compared the descriptive variables between the satisfied and dissatisfied groups...

The management of rotator cuff tears continues to prove challenging for orthopaedic surgeons. Such tears affect most age groups and can lead to significant morbidity in patients. The aetiology of these tears is likely to be multifactorial; however, an understanding of the mechanisms involved is still under review. Despite advancements in surgical operative techniques and the materials used, post-operative recurrence rates after surgical repair remain high. A growing area of research surrounds biological adjuncts used to improve the healing potential of the repaired tissues...

BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) is a complication not uncommon following total knee arthroplasty. Postoperative bleeding-related complications are a concern in many guidelines. The authors aimed to compare the amount of postoperative drainage from closed suction drainage, transfusion rate, and postoperative complications between aspirin and rivaroxaban as VTE prophylaxes after total knee arthroplasty. METHODS: This study was a retrospective case-matched study of 155 patients...

Sarcomas are rare mesenchymal bone and soft tissue tumors of the musculoskeletal system. In the past, the primary treatment modality was amputation of the involved limb and the 5-year survival was very low for high-grade tumors. During the last three decades, limb salvage has become the rule rather than the exception and the use of neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapies (radiation and chemotherapy) has dramatically increased disease-free survival. Reconstruction of large bone and soft tissue defects, though, still remains a significant challenge in sarcoma patients...

INTRODUCTION: It is still unknown whether the creation of blood-free surfaces by the use of tourniquet during total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has an influence on cement penetration and on implant fixation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the cement mantle under tibial component and the occurrence of progressive radiolucent lines (RLLs) according to the use of tourniquet in primary TKA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty patients undergone TKA without the use of tourniquet (group 1) were well matched regarding baseline characteristics with 50 TKAs with the use of tourniquet (group 2)...

Neonatal brachial plexus palsy is a devastating complication after a difficult delivery. The incidence of this injury has not significantly decreased over the past decades, despite all the advances in perinatal care. Although primary repair of the nerves with microsurgical techniques is the common treatment strategy nowadays, there are late cases in which secondary procedures in tendons or bones are necessary. Moreover, secondary procedures may be needed to improve the results of primary repair. A careful preoperative assessment of all the residual defects and deformities in upper limbs of these patients is essential...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is very common, most frequently resulting from motor vehicle accidents and falling from a height. Often, SCI occurs at the cervical level, resulting in tetraplegia, which consists of loss of effective arm and/or hand function. For these patients, hand function is considered the most desired function, above bowel, bladder and sexual function. Fortunately, understanding about nerve and tendon transfers is steadily growing, providing new surgical solutions for functional restoration in tetraplegia patients...

BACKGROUND: There has been a shift from cemented to uncemented hip arthroplasty. One popular uncemented combination is the R3 acetabular cup with Polarstem, having the lowest revision rate in the UK National Joint Registry. However, there are no medium-term clinical outcomes on this combination in the literature. The aim of this study is to review our centre's outcomes with this combination using conventional bearings with a minimum of 7-year follow-up. METHODS: Using our centre's arthroplasty database, we identified all patients that underwent a total hip arthroplasty using these implants from August 2009 to December 2010...

PURPOSE: In the last couple of years, a significant amount of studies comparing the UKA and TKA for unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis have been published. However, there is a lack of recent meta-analysis comparing the two implants. Since the number of performed UKAs is currently increasing and the indications are obsolete, it becomes important to update current evidences and outcomes. With these premises, a meta-analysis of clinical trials comparing UKA versus TKA was conducted. METHODS: In October 2018, the following databases were accessed: Cochrane Systematic Reviews, Scopus, PubMed and Google Scholar...

BACKGROUND: Short-stem (SS) hip prostheses for total hip arthroplasty (THA) have gained popularity as surgeons strive to reproduce physiological stress distributions at the proximal femur. Additionally, as THA indications continue to target younger populations, preservation of femoral bone stock for potential revision surgeries is particularly appealing. However, little is known regarding the short-term complications of each variety of short stem during the learning curve period. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the short-term complications among the THA recipients with the use of a novel SS hip prosthesis...

The current standard practice of treatment for congenital talipes equinus varus (CTEV) is the Ponseti method of manipulation and casting which requires great compliance by caregivers for casting as well as bracing. There is inconclusive evidence regarding optimal cast change interval. This was a prospective non-randomized study conducted at a tertiary care hospital in South India over a 2-year period with a minimum follow-up of 5 years. The patients were divided into 2 groups, one with cast change interval of 7 days and the other group at 3 days...
