PURPOSE: Extra-articular hip impingement syndromes encompass a group of conditions that have previously been an unrecognised source of pain in the hip and on occasion been associated with intra-articular hip impingement as well. As arthroscopic techniques for the hip continue to evolve, the importance of these conditions has been recognised recently and now form an important part of the differential of an individual presenting with hip pain. The aim of this article, therefore, is to provide the reader with an evidence-based and comprehensive update of these syndromes...

BACKGROUND: Deep gluteal syndrome (DGS) is an underdiagnosed entity characterized by pain and/or dysesthesias in the buttock area, hip or posterior thigh and/or radicular pain due to a non-discogenic sciatic nerve entrapment in the subgluteal space. Multiple pathologies have been incorporated in this all-included "piriformis syndrome", a term that has nothing to do with the presence of fibrous bands, obturator internus/gemellus syndrome, quadratus femoris/ischiofemoral pathology, hamstring conditions, gluteal disorders and orthopedic causes...

BACKGROUND: Extracellular matrix is used in various applications. We present our preliminary experience using a new device that consists of a porcine extracellular matrix with an epithelial basement membrane (MatriStem(®), ACell, Inc. Columbia, MD, USA) for adolescent pilonidal disease. METHODS: A retrospective review of four patients with pilonidal disease was undertaken. Three occurred in the gluteal cleft, and the fourth in the umbilicus. In the first patient, the wound deficit was filled with lyophilized MicroMatrix powder and a sheet of Multilayer Wound Matrix was placed to cover the wound...

Deep gluteal syndrome describes the presence of pain in the buttock caused from non-discogenic and extrapelvic entrapment of the sciatic nerve. Several structures can be involved in sciatic nerve entrapment within the gluteal space. A comprehensive history and physical examination can orientate the specific site where the sciatic nerve is entrapped, as well as several radiological signs that support the suspected diagnosis. Failure to identify the cause of pain in a timely manner can increase pain perception, and affect mental control, patient hope and consequently quality of life...

Arthroscopic techniques for the hip joint have evolved into endoscopic methods for extra-articular disorders. These endoscopic strategies provide a less invasive alternative to open procedures for traditionally recognized forms of pathology. Endoscopy has defined new disorders amenable to surgical correction and has redefined some of these existing disorders. The peritrochanteric and deep gluteal regions represent 2 of the most currently active areas of exploration. Peritrochanteric problems include trochanteric bursitis, full-thickness and partial-thickness tears of the abductors including the gluteus medius and minimus, and external coxa saltans (snapping iliotibial band)...

Ischiofemoral space impingement has become an increasingly recognized extracapsular cause of atypical hip, deep gluteal, and groin pain that can be treated endoscopically. We present a minimally invasive posterolateral technique that preserves the attachment of the iliopsoas tendon and quadratus femoris insertion while decompressing the ischiofemoral space by resecting the lesser trochanter. Furthermore, we present tips to perform this technique in a manner that minimizes the potential for damage to the sciatic nerve...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the temperature at the sciatic nerve when using a monopolar radiofrequency (RF) probe to control bleeding in deep gluteal space endoscopy, as well as assess the fluid temperature profile. METHODS: Ten hips in 5 fresh-frozen human cadaveric specimens from the abdomen to the toes were used for this experiment. Temperatures were measured at the sciatic nerve after 2, 5, and 10 seconds of continuous RF probe activation over an adjacent vessel, a branch of the inferior gluteal artery...

INTRODUCTION: Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare myxedematous mesenchymal tumor that mainly occurs in the female pelvis and perineum. The principle of treatment for aggressive angiomyxoma is surgical excision. The tumor can be removed by local excision alone when it occurs locally on the perineum. However, it cannot be completely excised by a perineal approach alone when it passes through the perineum and pelvic bone to extend into the retroperitoneal space. CASE PRESENTATION: A 34-year-old Asian woman presented with a rapidly growing left perineal mass and swelling in the left gluteal region...

Birds and reptiles always carry a long and thick artery accompanying the sciatic nerve (i.e., the sciatic artery), whereas mammals do not. We attempted to demonstrate a difference in courses of the nerve and artery in fetuses in relation with the hip joint posture. Eight mid-term human fetuses (15-18 weeks), five mouse fetuses (E18) and five chick embryos (11 days after incubation) were examined histologically. Thin feeding arteries in the sciatic nerve were consistently observed in human fetuses in spite of the long, inferiorly curved course of the nerve around the ischium...

The optimal treatment of the pilonidal sinus has not currently been defined. This study described the use of a modified bilateral transpositional adipofascial flap technique that effectively serves to flatten the deep natal cleft while keeping the scar limited to the intergluteal fold for good cosmesis. Between June 2007 and September 2011, 83 patients (61 men, 22 women) were included in the study. Duration of pilonidal sinus symptoms ranged from 1-15 (median 5) years; 15 patients had recurrent disease. Before the operation, perforating branches of the four pairs of lateral sacral arteries were identified with a Doppler audioscope...

Arthroscopic surgery in the hip joint has historically lagged behind its counterparts in the shoulder and knee. However, the management of hip injuries in the athletic population has rapidly evolved over the past decade with our improved understanding of mechanical hip pathology as well as the marked improvement in imaging modalities and arthroscopic techniques. Current indications for hip arthroscopic surgery may include symptomatic labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), hip capsular laxity/instability, chondral lesions, disorders of the peritrochanteric or deep gluteal space, septic joint, loose bodies, and ligamentum teres injuries...

Pelvic osteomyelitis is a very uncommon complication of Crohn's disease, usually clinically unsuspected in the setting of acute Crohn's disease relapses. The case of a 21-year old patient is reported, in whom ileo-cecal inflammatory disease was complicated by fistulization to the presacral space and sacral osteomyelitis, plus multiple abscesses involving the iliopsoas, posterior paravertebral and gluteal muscles. As confirmed by surgical and pathological findings, MRI provided comprehensive imaging diagnosis by demonstrating both the pathogenesis and the full extent of the complex, deep pelvic inflammatory process...

INTRODUCTION: A major source of morbidity after abdominoperineal resection (APR) after neoadjuvant external beam pelvic radiation are perineal wound complications. Wound complications are common for 25-66% of patients overall. There are many of procedures provided to reconstruct the perineal defect after APR e.g. primary closure, secondary closure, superior gluteal artery flap and vertical rectus abdominus myocutaneous (VRAM) flap. Our purpose was to describe the effect of VRAM flap on reconstruction of perineal wound...

The treatment of pressure sores requires soft tissue reconstruction with thick tissue to provide padding of bony prominences and obliterate dead space. Fasciocutaneous flaps may not provide adequate bulk. Propeller flaps (180 degrees) based on perforators from the gluteal artery may be harvested as a reverse flow musculocutaneous flap including a muscle plug to reconstruct deep cavities. Three patients presenting with deep pressure sores required reconstruction of large cavities. In addition to a regular 180 degrees propeller flap, a muscle plug based on a perforator found in the blade of the propeller was used to add bulk to the flap and obliterate the cavity with well-vascularized tissue...

STUDY DESIGN: Case report. OBJECTIVE: The authors report a new percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) technique for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation with a high iliac crest via a transiliac approach. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: When the iliac crest is high, the L4-L5 and L5-S1 disc spaces are located deep in the pelvis, so they are not easily accessible via a suprailiac route. METHODS: A 51-year-old man manifested left gluteal and leg pain due to an up-migrated soft disc herniation at the L4-L5 level...

BACKGROUND: Using the internal mammary vessels as recipient vessels in free-flap autologous breast reconstruction has become a common practice. However, these vessels are typically accessed by removing a costochondral segment. The purpose of this study was to describe the authors' rib-sparing technique for accessing the internal mammary vessels that is efficient and reliable and limits chest wall morbidity. METHODS: The authors analyzed 100 consecutive free-tissue transfers for breast reconstruction in which the internal mammary vessels were accessed using a rib-sparing technique...
