BACKGROUND: The term osteochondral lesion (OCL) refers to a defect involving the chondral surface and or subchondral bone. These lesions are associated with ankle injuries with bony and soft tissue and cause pain, decreased range of motion, swelling and impact adversely on quality of life. To date the standard treatment has been isolated microfracture (BMS). The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of BMS alone to BMS augmented with bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) in the treatment of ankle OCLs...

BACKGROUND: The facial bone has a complex structure compared to other bones, and various types of fractures can occur due to its characteristics. Among them, in comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall, multiple depressed and impacted bony segments cannot be reduced easily when performing internal fixation using plates and screws or wires, and inadequate restoration leads to a range of complications. This paper introduces an alternative technique using a resorbable mesh with fibrin glue to restore comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall...

Serious hemorrhage after a bone biopsy is a rare complication of the procedure. Due to the infrequency of this complication, there is limited literature available regarding the treatment. Here, we present a case of a 70-year-old male who developed a symptomatic gluteal hematoma after an iliac bone lesion biopsy. Hemostasis was achieved by injecting an N-butyl cyanoacrylate glue solution into the bone cannulation site under CT-guidance.

Surgical implants are essential elements of repair procedures to correct worn out joints, damaged spinal components, heart and vascular disease, and chronic pain. However, many of the materials that provide stability, flexibility, and durability to the implants are also immunogenic. Fortunately, allergic responses to surgical implants are infrequent. When they do occur, however, the associated pain, swelling, inflammation, and decreased range of motion can significantly impair the implant function. Given the high numbers of joint replacements performed in the developed world, allergic reactions to orthopedic implants form the largest category of allergic responses...

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries bones were an essential raw material for the German chemical industry, vital to the production of fertilizer, glue, gelatine, soap and other products. As most of this material was imported, the German school system during the "Third Reich" took the utilisation of bones as an example to illustrate the relevance of the four-year plan of 1936 and its policy of economic self-sufficiency. The school children were encouraged to collect bones from domestic sources and bring them to the collecting points in the schools...

Osteochondral lesions of the talus refer to a chondral or subchondral defect of the articular cartilage and potentially the underlying bone. Ankle sprains are an extremely common injury; approximately 27,000 ankle sprains occur per day in America. Fifty percent of these can lead to a cartilage injury to the ankle. There has been a high quoted rate of failure with conservative measures of up to 45% in some series. Surgical options are largely broken down into 2 groups, namely, reparative or regenerative treatments...

In developing countries, during the harvest season, winnower blade injuries occur very frequently in children and results in lifelong disability. Nine children were managed during 1 month, all resulting due to winnower blade induced craniofacial trauma. PubMed search for "fan blade injury" showed two case series and three case reports. In our study, 88% had compound depressed fracture; brain matter leak in 56%, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak alone in 22%. 66.7% had injury involving the frontal bone...

Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) imaging is a powerful tool for the assessment of bone quality; however, it requires the preparation of thin bone sections. Conventional poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) embedding for the preparation of sections takes more than two weeks and causes denaturation of the bone. Development of a quick and easy sample preparation technique without denaturation is needed for accurate clinical evaluation of fresh calcified bone using FTIR imaging. Frozen sectioning allows the quick and easy preparation of thin sections without denaturation, but it requires a substrate with good chemical resistance and improved heat shock resistance...

Tendon graft healing in bone tunnels for the fixation of intra-articular ligament reconstructions may limit clinical outcome by delaying healing. This study assesses the effects of hydrogel-mediated delivery of bone anabolic growth factors in a validated model of tendon-to-bone tunnel healing. Forty-five Wistar rats were randomly allocated into three groups (BMP2-treated, GSK126-treated, and placebo). All animals underwent a tendon-to-bone tunnel reconstruction. Healing was evaluated at 4 weeks by biomechanical assessment, micro-computed tomography (bone mineral density, bone volume, cross sectional area of bone tunnels), and traditional histology...

Background: Conservative treatment is performed for isolated anterior wall of the maxillary sinus fractures, in many cases when the fracture is clinically not severe and asymptomatic. Despite the absence of symptoms, complications such as sinusitis, rhinitis, and chronic purulent secretion may develop; therefore, successful reduction is required. We attempted to reduce the risk of complications using an alternative technique: reduction of the fracture with two urinary balloon catheters inserted through the maxillary ostium and fixation using fibrin glue, which minimizes the damage to the bony fragments and sinus mucosa...
