#1
Brian Capogna, William E Ryan, Alan W McGee, Laith M Jazrawi
The Latarjet procedure involves the transfer of the coracoid process with its soft tissue attachments, thereby providing both bony and soft tissue articular reinforcement for glenohumeral stabilization. Most studies show positive outcomes with this procedure and complications at rates as low as 1%, predominately secondary to technical error. We present a case of recurrent anterior instability after two attempts at soft tissue stabilization (arthroscopic labral repair followed by open inferior capsular shift) in which an open Latarjet procedure was performed followed by subsequent revision secondary to coracoid autograft fracture...

A 67-year-old man presented to orthopaedic care with a painful knee. Workup was consistent with septic arthritis of a native knee, and the patient underwent operative treatment. Cultures from the operating room were speciated to Staphylococcus lugdunensis. To the investigators' knowledge, this is the first reported S. lugdunensis infection in a peripheral joint in the absence of an orthopaedic prosthesis. Although traditionally associated with infectious endocarditis, S. lugdunensis has been identified as a causative agent in many organ systems, including orthopaedic infections...

John P Begly, Timothy B Rapp, Mehul R Shah
A 39-year-old man presented to orthopaedic care with a painful, fully locked knee. Workup revealed free intraarticular nodules, which were subsequently arthroscopically removed and identified to be synovial hemangioma. To the investigators' knowledge, this is the second reported case of synovial hemangioma presenting as a painful, definitively locked knee. Synovial hemangioma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of knee pain, particularly after more common diagnoses have been ruled out. Efficient and appropriate diagnosis and treatment may result in favorable patient outcomes and avoid long-term disability and dysfunction...

Yasushi Oshima, Joseph F Fetto
The low incidence of intraneural ganglion makes it difficult to diagnose and treat before it becomes serious nerve damage. This case describes a 69-year-old female, who suffered from the right drop foot and was diagnosed as a peroneal intraneural ganglion. Resection of the mass relieved the pain; however, motor function was not recovered. Early diagnosis and nerve decompression are essential for the peroneal intraneural ganglion before critical nerve symptoms.

Sanjit R Konda, Rachel Seymour, Arthur Manoli, Jordan Gales, Madhav A Karunakar
INTRODUCTION: This study aimed to develop a tool to quantify risk of inpatient mortality among geriatric and middleaged trauma patients. This study sought to demonstrate the ability of the novel risk score in the early identification of high risk trauma patients for resource-sparing interventions, including referral to palliative medicine. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective cohort study utilized data from a single level 1 trauma center. Regression analysis was used to create a novel risk of inpatient mortality score...

Donato J Perretta, Kenneth M Brock, Nirmal C Tejwani
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the early complications associated with the dorsal approach to the proximal radius. This approach, also called the Thompson approach, is used relatively infrequently for the treatment of forearm fractures. It is primarily reserved for proximal one-third radius fractures where a volar plate may not be placed sufficiently proximal for adequate fixation. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed on forearm fractures performed at our institution...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of distal femoral periprosthetic fractures associated with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has been reported as 0.3% to 2.5%. This study examined the incidence of distal femoral periprosthetic fractures at one hospital over a 16-year period. We hypothesized that the incidence of these fractures would be lowered after the introduction of lugged femoral implants and insertion of a distal femoral intramedullary bone graft during TKA. METHODS: From 1994 to 2010, 4,943 primary TKAs were performed...

Murillo Adrados, Jason Theobald, Lorraine Hutzler, Joseph Bosco
We identified 168,247 total hip and total knee arthroplasties performed in New York State between 2010 and 2012 to examine the evidence for increased geographical and institutional centralization of these procedures. We measured the increased growth of high volume institutions as compared to lower volume hospitals in New York State. We found a high proportion of total arthroplasties already performed in the dozen biggest hospitals in New York back in 2010 and a significant higher growth of these high volume, "centers of excellence," hospitals when compared to low volume hospitals...

Early physical activity has been proven to accelerate functional recovery after total hip replacement (THR). Weightbearing intolerance secondary to postoperative pain inhibits participation in physical therapy and limits the achievement of functional independence. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been shown to improve pain and accelerate recovery. This study focused on the effects of NMES on weightbearing pain. The primary objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of NMES versus placebo in the reduction of pain and the use of opiate medications in the treatment of patients during weightbearing exercises after THR...

Paget's disease of the bone is a chronic osteopathy that leads to structural weakness, hypervascularity, and bone deformities. Rapid bone turnover in patients with Paget's disease may affect outcomes following total hip arthroplasty (THA). Most literature on THA in the setting of Paget's disease is limited to isolated case reports or case series documenting a single institution experience. By completing a comprehensive analysis of the available cases, this study aims to investigate the outcomes and complications of THA in patients with Paget's disease...

BACKGROUND: Though previous studies have shown improved outcomes associated with higher volume surgeons and hospitals, this may not be replicated in ASDS due to case complexity variation. We hypothesized that high-volume surgeons perform more complex surgeries. Therefore, we defined an Operative Complexity Index (OCI), specifically for the National Inpatient Samples (NIS) data, which provides information on in-hospital postoperative complications, to assess rates of adult spine deformity surgery (ASDS) cases as they relate to surgeon and hospital operative volume...

BACKGROUND: Digital templating systems have been promoted due to their ability to reduce costs, facilitate preoperative planning, and maintain surgical accuracy. The implementation of a templating system at a large institution is complicated and has not been fully described. PURPOSE: We aim to explain the requisite collaboration between orthopaedic surgery, radiology, and information technology needed to implement a successful orthopaedic templating system at a large institution...

Gradual distal fibula lengthening (DFL), in conjunction with other procedures, was used to correct ankle valgus and short fibulae in three pediatric patients with multiple hereditary exostoses (MHE). The average amount of DFL was 15 mm with a mean follow-up of 2.9 years. Final radiographs showed that all three patients had a stable ankle mortise without evidence of talar tilt or widening. In conclusion, gradual DFL has the advantage of restoring anatomy in cases of ankle valgus due to short fibulae and MHE, and may be performed in conjunction with other procedures...

Ian David Kaye, Themistocles S Protopsaltis
Pyogenic cervical facet joint infections are rare and such infections from a dental origin are even less common. Of these few cases, none have described infection with Streptococcus intermedius as the pathogen. A 65-year-old orthopaedic surgeon complained of fevers, right-sided radiating neck pain, stiffness, swelling, erythema, and right upper extremity weakness one month after he had broken a crown over his right mandibular premolar, a continued source of pain. Imaging of the cervical spine showed a right C4-C5 facet inflammatory arthropathy and a small epidural abscess that was cultured and initially treated with intravenous antibiotics...

Nicholas A Ferran, Doron Sher
A case of simultaneous bilateral distal biceps tendon rupture in a recreational gymnast is presented. Achieving bilateral acute primary repair can be challenging as any immobilization will lead to disability and difficulty with self-care and activities of daily living. We have reviewed the evidence of this rare condition and demonstrate that modern rehabilitation techniques, which allow early mobilization, can make simultaneous bilateral primary repair a viable option in such cases.

A 35-year-old female presented to orthopaedic clinic with a chief complaint of chronic left hip pain, beginning 17 years prior when she had sustained a gunshot wound to her left buttock. Imaging demonstrated significant left hip arthritis with a retained projectile in the femoral head. Lead levels were also found to be significantly elevated. The patient underwent successful left total hip arthroplasty, with subsequent postoperative pain relief and consistent decrease in serum lead level. This report presents a rare case that emphasizes lead intoxication as a potentially dangerous complication of gunshot wounds and retained projectiles in the orthopaedic patient...

Knee-related complaints are among the most commonly encountered conditions by orthopaedic surgeons. Knee pathology varies widely and includes arthritis, deformities, fractures, infections, neuromuscular disorders, oncologic diseases, and soft-tissue injury. While nonoperative treatment modalities (activity modification, medications, injections, and physical therapy) are typically used as primary interventions, surgical treatment may ultimately become necessary. The purpose of this review is to discuss the most common open approaches to the knee, with an emphasis on surgically relevant anatomy for each approach...

BACKGROUND: In order to compare open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with locked plating to hemiarthroplasty for the treatment of three- and four-part proximal humerus fractures, we compared two groups of patients treated during the same time period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-five patients who underwent repair of a three- or four-part proximal humerus fracture with locked plates (Group A) were identified in a prospective database and were compared to 29 patients who underwent hemiarthroplasty for similar injuries (Group B)...

INTRODUCTION: Ultrasonography offers a fast and inexpensive method to evaluate the rotator cuff in the office setting. However, the accuracy of ultrasound is highly user dependent. The purpose of this study is to investigate the learning curve of an orthopaedic surgeon in using ultrasound to diagnose rotator cuff tears. METHODS: A sports medicine fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon was taught how to perform and interpret an ultrasound examination of the shoulder by a musculoskeletal radiologist...

BACKGROUND: Complaints related to the hands, wrists, and fingers comprise approximately 3.7 million emergency department visits annually. The complexity of this subject can confound timely diagnosis and treatment, particularly if the treating physician has not received specialized training. We set out to determine whether emergency medicine training in the USA provides adequate preparation for dealing with the identification, management, and treatment of hand, wrist, and finger injuries...
