PURPOSE: Femoroacetabular impingement and its surgical treatment have not been described before in osteonecrosis of femoral head. We present here outcomes of 15 patients with femoroacetabular impingement secondary to osteonecrosis of femoral head. This results from partial collapse of femoral head, particularly in the anterosuperior region, secondary to osteonecrosis. With subsequent remodelling, periphery of the femoral head flattens and osteophytes form in this area. All these patients were managed with open/arthroscopic osteochondroplasty of femoral head...

INTRODUCTION: Recently, the branching pattern of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) named Fan type has been reported that LFCN injury cannot be avoided in surgical dissections that use the direct anterior approach to the hip joint in the cadaveric study. We hypothesized that the Fan type can be identified by ultrasound The aim of this study was to investigate whether LFCN injury occurs in DAA-THA in cases identified as the Fan type based on preoperative ultrasound of the proximal femur...

Subspine impingement is an extra-articular hip impingement syndrome that usually occurs when there is abnormal contact between an enlarged or malorientated anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) and the distal anterior femoral neck in straight flexion of the hip. We present the case of a 13-year-old boy with a history of left groin pain and loss of range of movement of the hip for over six months following an avulsion fracture of the AIIS during a game of rugby. He was diagnosed with subspine impingement secondary to a large lesion of heterotopic ossification in the rectus femoris; this was dissected and extracted from the muscle in toto arthroscopically...

BACKGROUND: Recent evidence has highlighted a risk that the majority of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is removed while making bone cuts in tibia and femur during total knee replacement surgery. Aim of this cadaveric study is to calculate how much PCL footprint is retained in a PCL retaining prosthesis after routine tibial and femoral cuts are made.  Methods: Twelve paired formalin-fixed Indian cadaveric knees were studied. Knees were disarticulated and all soft tissues were circumferentially removed from the tibia and femur...

INTRODUCTION: The development of damage control orthopedics (DCO) procedures has led to the development of temporary unicortical external fixators (TUEFs) intended to limit deep infectious complications and facilitate early conversion to internal fixation. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted in two French military trauma centers, including on patients being treated for tibial fractures with a TUEF (UNYCO® - Orthofix® ) followed by an early conversion to intramedullary nailing...

INTRODUCTION: Altered biomechanical properties, due to intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration and missing nucleus fibrosus, could be thought as one of the reasons for the back pain many herniation patients experience after surgery. It has been suggested to repair annulus fibrosus (AF) to restore stability and allow nucleus pulposus (NP) replacement and furthermore prevent reherniation. The aim of this study was to evaluate a new method for closing a defect in AF for use in herniation surgery...

Surgical postgraduate examiners and examinees in Nigeria complain of the low pass rate at all levels of the postgraduate surgical training examinations to which several factors are contributing. For several years there has been being a persistently low surgeon workforce in the country despite having two surgeon producing institutions been for at least 37 years. A review of the probable causes was carried out to shed more light on the matter. At the time of writing there are 52 National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN) and 46 West African College of Surgeons (WACS) accredited post graduate surgery training programs in Nigeria compared with 99 in the United Kingdom (UK) and 1056 in the United States (US)...

Bilateral hip arthrosis is commonly seen and two-staged bilateral Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) is a preferred choice of treatment due to the fear of complications associated with one-stage bilateral procedures. However, many studies now indicate that the treatment option should be patient specific. We report two cases of one-stage bilateral anterior THA. First, a 54-year-old male operated over a year ago and second a 59-year-old female operated 6 weeks ago. Both presented with a long history of bilateral grade IV hip arthritis causing them severe pain, compromised gait and disturbed sleep...

Despite the theoretical advantages of uncemented short stems, postoperative thigh pain is still matter of concern and can be attributed to different causes. We report a peculiar case of a stress fracture around a short cementless stem with cervico-metaphyseal fixation in an otherwise healthy patient. We implanted a MiniHipTM stem in a 43 year-old male professional golf player for the treatment of primary osteoarthritis using a ceramic on ceramic bearing. Against medical advice, the patient started to play soccer at the 4th postoperative month and was completely asymptomatic to that extent; but at 8 months follow-up and without a history of trauma he started complaining about progressive hip pain...

INTRODUCTION: We conducted this study to determine if the pre-surgical patient specific instrumented planning based on Computed Tomography (CT) scans can accurately predict each of the femoral and tibial resections performed through 3D printed cutting guides. The technique helps in optimization of component positioning determined by accurate bone resection and hence overall alignment thereby reducing errors. METHODS: Prophecy evolution medial pivot patient specific instrumented knee replacement systems were used for end stage arthrosis in all consecutive cases over a period of 20 months by a single surgeon...

To obtain a wide resection and safe margins in recurrent spine osteosarcoma, the surgical approach can include - posterior only, combined posterior and anterior, and combined posterior and anterior with a return to posterior in multiple stages. In our case, we used a novel approach of multiple extensile exposures circumferentially in a single stage with a single surgical prep. We present the case of a 9-year-old female with a history of metastatic osteosarcoma, who previously underwent an attempted en bloc resection with an L3 corpectomy and left below knee amputation...

Femoral intertrochanteric fracture is very common in elderly population. The usual treatment for these patients is intra-extramedullary fixation. In normal situations, expand medullary cavity is needed, in order to implant various intramedullary implants. On rare occasion, which will in turn lead to the reamer is stuck into the medullary cavity of femoral shaft. Open or closed technique for moving of the broken nails had been reported before. We firstly report a novel technique by using handy tool which included in orthopaedic instrument set to remove the broken reamer stuck into femoral cavity when implanting a PFNA...

INTRODUCTION: The success of Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) hinges on balanced flexion-extension gaps. This paper aims to evaluate the correlation between imbalanced gaps and clinical outcomes, and hence help quantify the imbalanced gap in navigation-assisted total knee arthroplasty. METHODS: We studied 195 knees with an average follow-up of two years. Flexion-extension gaps were obtained from computer calculation upon cementation of implants in both flexion (90°) and extension...
