Pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis (PFT) is a well known infectious condition of the hand, involving the inoculation of the flexor tendon sheath with microorganisms. Many cases have been reported, common causes including direct inoculation by a puncture wound and deep lacerations extending into the flexor tendon sheath. In this report, we present a case of a 50 year old female with PFT resulting from autophagia (consuming one's own body parts, in our case, fingers) successfully treated with irrigation and debridement, amputation of the index finger at the metacarpophalangeal joint and antibiotic therapy...

PURPOSE: In recent times the direct anterior approach for total hip replacement has gained considerable interest among orthopaedic surgeons because of the relative muscle-sparing nature than other surgical approaches. However, critics believe that this approach is associated with steep learning curve and high complication rates, mainly attributed to a more limited exposure to the femur. In order to make femoral access easier and implantation of acetabulum in anatomic plane, we designed a "two incisions anterior approach technique" for total hip replacement...

BACKGROUND: The omega approach represents a modification of the lateral approach to the hip for joint replacement. It was developed to reduce the potential for gluteus muscle dysfunction and thereby improve functional outcome following hip replacement. METHODS: A cohort of 415 consecutive hip replacements receiving the same type of cemented femoral component were followed up at a mean of three years postoperatively and invited to complete functional outcome and satisfaction scores...

BACKGROUND: There has been a trend towards flexible intramedullary nailing for unstable tibial shaft fractures in the pediatric population, traditionally, utilizing a 2-incision technique with passage of one nail medially and one nail laterally. Our study aims to compare a single incision approach for flexible nailing of unstable tibial shaft fractures in pediatric patients to the traditional 2-incision approach. METHODS: Patients were selected for operative fixation if they had a length unstable tibial shaft fracture confirmed by fluoroscopy...

This case report outlines some of the challenges as well as limitations in correction of osteoarthritis of the knee in combination with extra-articular deformities,and provides a novel and straightforward surgical solution in overcoming these challenges. We describe the case of a 37-year-old male who suffered from advanced bilateral tri-compartmental knee arthritis due to untreated bloodstream-sourced osteomyelitis after birth. Radiographs and surgery confirmed extremely severe deformities. We performed two different surgical techniques in order to correct extra-articular deformities (one-stage approach of concurrent tibial and femoral osteotomy and total knee arthroplasty on one side, and soft tissue balancing with "pie-crusting technique" plus total knee arthroplasty on the other side), with description of subsequent results at 36-months follow-up...

Anterior humeral line (AHL) and tilting angle (TA) are used for the assessment of pediatric elbow sagittal plane alignment in surgical treatment of pediatric supracondylar humeral fracture. However, few studies exist that compare the reliabilities between these parameters. The purpose of this study is to determine whether measurements of radiographic parameters are reliable and useful for achieving anatomical reduction. In the current study, we demonstrated that the identifying the AHL location involves a simple and reliable measurement compared with TA...

PURPOSE: Advantages of tourniquet use in TKA include benefits for surgeons and patients, varying from a bloodless operation site to a reduced intervention time. The time under ischemia and the reperfusion period are crucial phases for affected soft-tissue, most commonly the extensor mechanism. CASE REPORTS: documented its impact on soft-tissue, ranging from necrotic muscle damage to systemic inflammation. Recently, research regarding tourniquet application patterns discuss clinical outcome parameters in the context of soft-tissue damage, excluding the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms...
