BACKGROUND: The optimal strategy for shepherd's crook deformity correction remains technically challenging. In particular, it is difficult to perform an accurate osteotomy based on the pre-operative correction plan. Moreover, the choice of ideal hardware remains unclear. In addition, when combined with the deformity of knee joint, the sequence of deformity correction is another overlooked factor when making a correction strategy. METHODS: From February 2012 to March 2014, we retrospectively examined a cases series in our department involving the creation of three-dimensional (3D) printing osteotomy templates and inner fixation for shepherd's crook deformity in fibrous dysplasia...

PURPOSE: The proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ) is a rather unknown articulation. There is little understanding of its anatomy, physiology, and functional role. The objectives of this research are to describe the normal kinematics of the PTFJ and its relation to the ankle and knee movements. METHODS: Fourteen knees of seven adult fresh frozen whole body cadavers were studied. The proximal tibiofibular joint and ligaments were identified, after which we sequentially sectioned the anterior proximal tibiofibular ligament (APTFL), the posterior proximal tibiofibular ligament (PPTFL), and the interosseous syndesmotic membrane...

CASE: An 88-year-old man sustained low-energy, bilateral posterior hip dislocation due to a fall, with subsequent right peroneal nerve palsy. Closed reduction was performed in the emergency room, and the hips were found stable to manipulation under anesthesia. CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, low-energy, bilateral posterior hip dislocation previously has not been described in the literature. Prompt reduction is crucial; however, there is still associated morbidity and mortality, especially in an elderly patient...

BACKGROUND: Recently, a bundled payment model was implemented in the United States to improve quality and reduce costs. While hospitals may be rewarded for lowering costs, they may be financially exposed by high cost complications, the so-called bundle busters. We aimed at determining the incidence, etiology, and costs of postacute complications after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted using a prospectively collected database of patients who underwent primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) from January 2015 to April 2016...

The aim of this study was to investigate how the affordances of an indoor climbing wall changed for intermediate climbers following a period of practice during which hold orientation was manipulated within a learning and transfer protocol. The learning protocol consisted of four sessions, in which eight climbers randomly ascended three different routes of fixed absolute difficulty (5c on the French scale), as fluently as possible. All three routes were 10.3 m in height and composed of 20 hand-holds at the same locations on an artificial climbing wall; only hold orientations were altered: (i) a horizontal-edge route (H) was designed to afford horizontal hold grasping, (ii) a vertical-edge route (V) afforded vertical hold grasping, and (iii), a double-edge route (D) was designed to afford both horizontal and vertical hold grasping...

Intraoperative fluoroscopy can improve the precision of acetabular component positioning during direct anterior hip arthroplasty. However, changes in pelvic tilt with c-arm positioning may compromise accuracy. A geometric model of an acetabular component's projection onto fluoroscopy images was created and manipulated to simulate c-arm tilt. An apparently ideally-placed cup will have its effective anteversion changed by 7.5° with just 10° of caudal/cephalad tilt of the c-arm. This effect is greater in cups that are more horizontally placed or less anteverted...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes and early complications of obese patients who underwent total hip arthroplasty for osteoarthritis via an anterolateral approach in the supine position (ALS-THA) and compare these outcome with of a matched control group of non-obese patients. Patients and methods: Thirty-one hips in 28 patients with obesity (BMI ≧ 30 kg/m2 ) were included in this study. As a control group, 31 hips of 31 patients with a normal weight (BMI between 20 and 25 kg/m2 ) were matched based on age, sex, and laterality...

To achieve human upright posture (UP) and avoid falls, the central nervous system processes visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive information to activate the appropriate muscles to accelerate or decelerate the body's center of mass. In this process, sensory-motor (SM) latencies and muscular deficits, even in healthy older adults, may cause falls. This condition is worse for people with chronic neuromuscular deficits (stroke survivors, patients with multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease). One therapeutic approach is to recover or improve quiet UP by utilizing a balance board (BB) (a rotating surface with a tunable stiffness and time delay), where a patient attempts to maintain UP while task difficulty is manipulated...

Studies of soft tissue effects on joint mobility in extant animals can help to constrain hypotheses about joint mobility in extinct animals. However, joint mobility must be considered in three dimensions simultaneously, and applications of mobility data to extinct taxa require both a phylogenetically informed reconstruction of articular morphology and justifications for why specific structures' effects on mobility are inferred to be similar. We manipulated cadaveric hip joints of common quail and recorded biplanar fluoroscopic videos to measure a 'ligamentous' range of motion (ROM), which was then compared to an 'osteological' ROM on a ROM map...

In daily living activities, performance of spatially accurate manual movements in upright stance depends on postural stability. In the present investigation, we aimed to evaluate the effect of the required manual steadiness (task constraint) on the regulation of dynamic postural control. A single group of young participants (n=20) were evaluated in the performance of a dual posturo-manual task of balancing on a platform oscillating in sinusoidal translations at 0.4 Hz (low) or 1 Hz (high) frequencies while stabilizing a cylinder on a handheld tray...

BACKGROUND: A well-reduced femoral neck fracture is more likely to heal than a poorly reduced one, and increasing the quality of the surgical exposure makes it easier to achieve anatomic fracture reduction. Two open approaches are in common use for femoral neck fractures, the modified Smith-Petersen and Watson-Jones; however, to our knowledge, the quality of exposure of the femoral neck exposure provided by each approach has not been investigated. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What is the respective area of exposed femoral neck afforded by the Watson-Jones and modified Smith-Petersen approaches? (2) Is there a difference in the ability to visualize and/or palpate important anatomic landmarks provided by the Watson-Jones and modified Smith-Petersen approaches? METHODS: Ten fresh-frozen human pelvi underwent both modified Smith-Petersen (utilizing the caudal extent of the standard Smith-Petersen interval distal to the anterosuperior iliac spine and parallel to the palpable interval between the tensor fascia lata and the sartorius) and Watson-Jones approaches...

PURPOSE: Infections and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after total hip arthroplasty (THA) are challenging problems for both the patient and surgeon. Previous studies have identified numerous risk factors for infections and DVT after THA but have often been limited by sample size. We aimed to evaluate the effect of operative time on early postoperative infection as well as DVT rates following THA. We hypothesized that an increase in operative time would result in increased odds of acquiring an infection as well as a DVT...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies evaluating reasons for 30-day readmissions following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) may underestimate hospital-based utilization of healthcare resources during a patient's episode-of-care. We sought to identify common reasons for 90-day emergency department (ED) visits and hospital readmissions following primary elective unilateral TJA. METHODS: Patients from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2015 having primary elective TJA and at least one 90-day postoperative ED-only visit and/or readmission for any reason were identified using the Kaiser Permanente Total Joint Replacement Registry...

The purpose was to determine the effect of lowering minimum eye height through an externally focused object on knee and hip flexion and impact forces during jump-landing. Kinematics and ground reaction forces were collected when 20 male and 19 female participants performed jump-landing trials with their natural minimum eye height, and trials focusing on lowering their minimum eye height to an external object, which was set at 5% or 10% of standing height lower. Participants demonstrated decreased minimum eye height and increased peak knee and hip flexion during early-landing and stance phase when focusing on lowering eye height to the external object (p < 0...
