PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical and radiographic findings of stage 3 or lower osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) with intact acetabular cartilage in patients treated with bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BHA). METHODS: A total of 79 hips that underwent BHA for ONFH were included in this study. The average observation period was 7.6 years. Clinical results were evaluated using the Harris hip score. We performed radiographic analysis to assess the migration of the outer cup, the permanent image around the outer cup, and loosening of the stem...

BACKGROUND: Massive rotator cuff tear (RCT) can result in disability and severe pain. When conservative treatment fails, surgical treatment should be considered, as various surgical options can provide relatively satisfactory results. However, choosing an optimal treatment remains controversial. A relatively new treatment for irreparable RCT is the arthroscopic implantation of a biodegradable balloon spacer into the subacromial space. Here, we examined whether placement of this balloon spacer reduces pain and improves functional outcome in patients with an irreparable RCT...

PURPOSE: Scheuermann kyphosis is the most common structural kyphosis among adolescence and young people. Surgical treatment may be performed through combined anterior and posterior or posterior-only approaches; to our knowledge, the efficacy of posterior-only approach as less invasive procedure is not well studied in case of severe rigid Scheuermann kyphosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighteen patients with severe rigid Scheuermann kyphosis operated through only posterior approach from 2013 to 2016 were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Lower-limb discrepancy following total hip arthroplasty is the third-most common reason for patient dissatisfaction in orthopaedic surgery. Therefore, accurate planning and evaluation methods are mandatory. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of the EOS™ system by establishing and comparing the reproducibility of lower-limb automatic and manual 3D measurements. We hypothesized that the reproducibility of the lower-limb measurements is similar regardless of the method used and with an agreement higher than 0...

PURPOSE: Pain management after total knee arthroplasty has seen many recent advances such as peripheral nerve blocks in order to improve the functional outcome and reduce morbidity after surgery. Adductor canal block (ACB) and multimodal periarticular infiltration (MPI) are two techniques that have been proven to be efficacious individually. We hypothesized that the combination of ACB with MPI would reduce pain and improve knee range of movement (ROM) compared to ACB alone. METHODS: A prospective non-randomized study was conducted from July 2015 to December 2015 in our institution in a total of 200 consecutive patients undergoing unilateral total knee arthroplasty who were either given ACB alone (Group 1, n = 100 patients) or ACB + MPI (Group 2, n = 100 patients)...

PURPOSE: The reverse shoulder prosthesis (RSP) was developed to relieve pain and improve functional outcomes in patients with glenohumeral arthritis and deficiency of the rotator cuff. Even if clinical and functional outcomes regarding the use of the RSP were reported by literature, data concerning progressive deltoid adaptation to this non-anatomic implant are still missing. The purpose of our study was to correlate clinical and functional outcomes with deltoid fibers activity and muscle fatigability in patients with reverse shoulder prosthesis at 2 years follow-up...

REVIEW
J Mthethwa, A Chikate
Tibial plateau fractures form a wide spectrum of injuries presenting varying challenges to the trauma surgeon. The prognosis of this injury spectrum is largely dependent on the management of each particular configuration, and the literature is as a result littered with a number of management strategies with limited consensus. The aim of this review is to provide a concise guide to the trauma surgeon based on newer and classical peer-reviewed publications in international orthopaedic journals. A PubMed search was conducted to identify peer-reviewed publications within the last 10 years and expanded to identify classic papers pertaining to the Schatzker classification...

BACKGROUND: Most of the information available about Legg-Calve-Perthes disease (LCPD) at present is gained through imaging modalities including plain radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). But the accuracy of MRI in this disease and its predictive value to reveal various intra-articular pathologies is not known. We correlated the findings of MRI with those seen on hip arthroscopy in children with active stage of LCPD. METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational study in which MRI findings were correlated with corresponding findings on hip arthroscopy in a cohort of 25 patients of active LCPD below 12 years of age...

Radial head prostheses (RHP) have been developed to decrease the complications rate following a radial head resection surgery. The aim of the RHP is to replicate the physiological radiocapitellar tracking, reproducing the mechanical function of the native radial head: to stabilize the elbow and to shear the forces passing through the elbow along with the other stabilizers. The currently used RHP models try to achieve this target with three different prosthesis' strategies: (a) loose fit stem, (b) bipolar radial head or (c) anatomical radial head...

The need for wide local excision (WLE) versus intralesional (IL) treatment of low-grade chondrosarcomas (CS) of the appendicular skeleton remains controversial. We sought to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare different conventional types of surgical treatments for grade I CS in terms of: (1) rate of local recurrence (LR) and metastases, (2) functional outcome as measured by the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) score, (3) complication rate. Eighteen studies enrolling 695 patients met our criteria...

PURPOSE: It is well known that total knee replacement surgery decreases pain and improves function, but the effect on postural assessment needs to be studied better with the use of new technological devices. Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) improves motor coordination and stability of the knee. On the other hand, changing joint functionality can modify the balance. The aim of this trial is to record and analyze the static and dynamic baropodometric data of patients in the first few months following joint replacement...
