INTRODUCTION: Unplanned readmissions are an undesirable and expensive outcome of clinical practice. Previous reported literature is limited by retrospective study designs and 30 day study intervals. We analyzed causes for 90-day unplanned readmission, temporal occurrence of major causes, possible predisposing factors, bed days lost and economic impact. MATERIALS & METHODS: A prospective analysis of 12729 admissions was performed over 1 year in an Orthopaedic unit...

Graft failure due to de-differentiation of the chondrocytes during in vitro culture and after transplantation is a major hurdle in Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI). We, herein, report the transplantation of autologous chondrocytes ex vivo expanded using a Thermo-reversible Gelation Polymer (TGP) in a rabbit model. A full thickness chondral defect was created in one of the knee joints in each of the six rabbits of the study and autologous chondrocytes in vitro expanded using TGP scaffold were transplanted after 10 weeks...

PURPOSE: Appropriate medio-lateral (ML) stability is an important factor of good clinical outcome following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We hypothesized that a newly introduced Bi-Cruciate Stabilized substituting (BCS) prosthesis reduces the medio-lateral instability in mid-flexion range. The purpose of this study was to measure the ML stability (varus ligament balance) using a new tensor device after implantation of BCS TKA and to analysis the association between varus ligament balance and clinical results after TKA...

BACKGROUNDS: After shoulder dislocation, kinematic changes in shoulder, including translation of the humeral head, ensue. There have been many attempts to measure these changes using motion measurement techniques, but in vivo three-dimensional (3D) glenohumeral changes have not been appreciated until now. The purpose of this study was to measure and analyze changes in glenohumeral translation in patients with shoulder dislocation and compare these changes with healthy shoulder. METHODS: We included 20 subjects who had suffered shoulder dislocation for first time, and 3D models of their humerus and scapula were obtained using computed tomography and fluoroscopic images during scapular plane abduction and external rotation of shoulder with elbow flexed at 90° and arm abducted at 90°...

Wear debris seems to be the most likely reason for osteolysis in THA. The aim was to show the influence of head and acetabular liner revision surgery on osteolytic zones around the femoral component. Can head and inlay revision surgery reduce the size of the osteolytic zones around the femoral component? Which patients could benefit? 47 patients (51 hips), who had undergone THA head and inlay revision surgery between 1999 and 2011, were reviewed. The mean lifetime for the prosthesis was 15.1 years (8-26, standard deviation 4...

INTRODUCTION: Liposomal bupivacaine has a paucity of data regarding narcotic requirements and hospital length of stay in comparison to other peri-articular injections, specifically in the total hip arthroplasty (THA) population. METHODS: 69 patients who underwent THA by a single surgeon were divided into two cohorts over a 3 year period in this retrospective study comparing narcotic requirements, hospital length of stay and cost. The study group (n = 29) received liposomal bupivacaine whereas a matched control group (n = 40) received a pharmacy-mixed cocktail in peri-articular structures...

OBJECTIVE: Perivascular epithelioid cell tumors (PEComa) are an uncommon family of soft tissue tumors. Previously, we described that the presence of pericyte antigens among PEComa family tumors differs extensively by histologic appearance. METHODS: Here, we extend our findings using the pericyte antigens Angiopoietin-1 (Ang-1) and Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2), using immunohistochemical detection in human tumor samples. RESULTS: While Ang-1 showed no expression across any PEComa family tumor, Ang-2 showed expression that like other pericyte markers was largely determined by cytologic appearance...

Perivascular soft tissue tumors are relatively uncommon neoplasms of unclear line of differentiation, although most are presumed to originate from pericytes. Previously, we reported a shared immunophenotype across these related tumor types. Here, we extend these findings to examine the expression of the pericyte markers angiopoietin-1 and -2 (Ang-1 and -2) among perivascular soft tissue tumors. Results showed consistent Ang-2 but not Ang-1 expression across tumor types. In summary, the absence of Ang-1 expression distinguishes perivascular from vascular soft tissue tumors...
