BACKGROUND: Intramedullary nailing (IMN) and plate have been reported as two effective devices for treating distal extra-articular fractures. However, reports of complications after fractures with use of different tibial fixation techniques in literatures are controversial. Thus, we performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to compare IMN with plate for evaluating the safety and efficacy. METHODS: The studies were searched from PubMed, Embase, Web of science and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials by two reviewers up to August 2017...

INTRODUCTION: Non-prosthetic peri-implant fractures (NPPIFs) are an under-reported entity. Management is challenging because of alterations in anatomy, the presence of orthopaedic implants and phenomena such as stress shielding, disuse osteopenia and fracture remodeling. The aims of this paper were to review patterns of injury, management and outcomes and to propose a classification system to aid further research. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study is a multi-centered retrospective case series...

BACKGROUND: Bone metastases represent the most frequent cause of cancer-related pain, affecting health-related quality of life and creating a substantial burden on the healthcare system. Although most bony metastatic lesions can be managed nonoperatively, surgical management can help patients reduce severe pain, avoid impending fracture, and stabilize pathologic fractures. Studies have demonstrated functional improvement postoperatively as early as 6 weeks, but little data exist on the temporal progress of these improvements or on the changes in quality of life over time as a result of surgical intervention...

Introduction: The treatment of femoral diaphyseal fractures by intramedullary nailing has become a common procedure in orthopaedic surgery. The purpose of this numerical simulation was to present how the changes in configuration of the stabilisation system can affect the stress and displacement state in the bone tissue and implanted device. Material and Methods: The numerical comparison of the stabilisation variants for the type 32-A2 femoral diaphyseal fracture (according to the AO classification) performed by using the Charfix2 (ChM®) anatomical nail locked in a number of chosen ways...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for complicated ingrown toenails. However, alternative treatments using nail braces have been reported to show good efficacy. The objective of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of a new nail brace for the treatment of ingrown toenails. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study on patients with ingrown toenails treated at Wan Fang Hospital between June 1, 2015 and May 30, 2016...

BACKGROUND: The majority of metastatic bone lesions to the femoral bone can be treated without surgery or with minimally invasive intramedullary nailing. In rare patients with extensive metastatic disease to the femur, total femur replacement may be the only surgical alternative to amputation; however, little is known about this approach. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: In a highly selected small group of patients with metastatic carcinoma of the femur, we asked: (1) What was the patient survivorship after this treatment? (2) What was the implant survivorship free from all-cause revision and amputation, and what complications were associated with this treatment? (3) What functional outcomes were achieved by patients after total femur replacement for this indication? METHODS: Eleven patients (three men, eight women) with a mean age of 64 years (range, 41-78 years) received total femur replacements between 1986 and 2016; none were lost to followup...

Endophthalmitis is a rare infection of the vitreous and/or aqueous. It can be bacterial or fungal. Exogenous endophthalmitis is the most common form and results from direct inoculation of a pathogen after eye surgery or penetrating trauma. Endophthalmitis can also be endogenous, secondary to disseminated infection. Fungal endophthalmitis is associated with poor prognosis and treatment is difficult given the low penetration of most of the antifungal agents available and the emergence of resistant filamentous fungi like Fusarium...

Background: We ought to explore the acquired somatic alterations, shedding light on genetic basis of somatic alterations in NB patients with chemotherapy. Methods: Marrow blood samples from NB patients were collected before treatment, after the 2nd and 4th chemotherapy for baseline research and continuous monitoring by whole exome sequencing. Plasma cell free DNA (cfDNA) was prepared for baseline research. Finger nail cells were extracted as self control. The clinical data was analyzed...

The purpose of this study was to quantify the peri-operative blood loss of elderly patients with intertrochanteric fractures treated by unreamed proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (PFNA) and analyze whether the substantial hidden blood loss was induced by initial trauma or the operation. The clinical data of 123 patients with intertrochanteric fracture treated with unreamed PFNA from Jan 2013 to Apr 2017 were analyzed retrospectively. Blood routine on admission day (ADM), pre-operative day one (PRE), post-operative days one and three (POD1 and POD3) and the visible blood loss (VBL) were obtained...

OBJECTIVE: To study clinical effects of multi-point fixation with bioabsorbable cartilage screws for the treatment of osteochondral fracture caused by patellar instability. METHODS: During the period from August 2014 to Steptember 2016, there were 21 patients with osteochondral fracture caused by patellar dislocation, including 7 males and 14 females, ranging in age from 12 to 42 years old, with an average of 27 years old. During the operation, free fractures fragments of cartilage were found with a open surgery, and the patients were treated with fixation by absorbable cartilage screws combined with lateral retinaculum release and medial retinaculum shrinkage...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the causes and explore the measures of prevention and treatment of the cerebrospinal leak after lumbar revision surgery. METHODS: The clinical data of 24 patients(17.78%) with cerebrospinal leak among 135 cases after lumbar revision surgery from January 2011 to January 2016 was retrospectively studied. Of them, 12 cases due to severe adhesion caused by scar formation; 4 cases due to yellow ligament hyperplasia adhesion with dura mater occurred dural tears when separating adhesion; 2 cases with severe hyperplasia and ossification of lumbar posterior longitudinal ligament occurred dural tears when revealing intervertebral disk; 2 cases due to improper nailing happened dural tears during operation...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa is a very debilitating disease, treated by antibiotics and excision. The reconstruction is usually done by secondary wound healing and/or split-thichness skin graft. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reconstruction of the axilla with local perforator flaps as a single stage surgical treatment. METHODS: This was a monocentric retrospective study conducted between November 2013 and June 2015. We included the patients with a severe axillary localization of the disease...

AIMS: Hindfoot arthrodesis with retrograde intramedullary nailing has been described as a surgical strategy to reconstruct deformities of the ankle and hindfoot in patients with Charcot arthropathy. This study presents case series of Charcot arthropathy patients treated with two different retrograde intramedullary straight compression nails in order to reconstruct the hindfoot and assess the results over a mid-term follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 18 consecutive patients and 19 operated feet with Charcot arthropathy who underwent a hindfoot arthrodesis using a retrograde intramedullary compression nail...

BACKGROUND: Basicervical femur neck fracture (FNF) is a rare type of fracture, and is associated with increased risk of fixation failure due to its inherent instability. The purpose of this study was (1) to investigate the incidence of fixation failure and (2) to determine risk factors for fixation failure in basicervical FNF after internal fixation. METHODS: To identify basicervical FNF with a minimum of 12 months follow-up, we retrospectively reviewed records of 3217 patients who underwent hip fracture surgery from May 2003 to March 2016...
