PURPOSE: The treatment of infected revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) is very challenging due to retained revision prosthesis, poor bone stock and soft tissue condition derived from previous revision surgeries, and comorbidities. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness and short-term outcomes of aggressive debridement and use of antibiotic-loaded cement beads with retention of the prosthesis for acute delayed or late infection of revision THAs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten consecutive patients with symptoms or signs of less than one-week evolution and well-fixed prostheses, were treated with this procedure and a postoperative course of organism-specific antibiotics for a minimum of 6 weeks...

This article details the significant complications associated with treatment of a patient who underwent maxillary reconstruction based entirely on zygomatic implants. The use of zygomatic implants is becoming increasingly widespread, and treatment has been shown to be predictable and generally free of surgical complications. However, extending from the maxillary alveolus, alongside or through the maxillary antrum, toward the zygoma or orbital rim, these long implants have the potential to create a range of complications that may be more serious than those encountered with conventional dental implants...

REVIEW
James Holton, Tahir Yousri, George Arealis, Ofer Levy
Fracture sequelae of the proximal humerus poses a complex management decision due to the frequent deformity and its consequences on the peri-articular soft tissues. These patients are frequently elderly with significant medical comorbidities. Due to the age of the patient there is frequently rotator cuff deficiency and therefore the reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) becomes the arthroplasty of choice. We have performed a systematic review of the literature and report nine studies presenting RSA for the treatment of fracture sequelae of the proximal humerus...

Acute myocardial infarction (MI) in the setting of infective endocarditis (IE) of mechanical cardiac valve is a rare phenomenon. The most challenging aspect is the recognition between septic embolus versus thromboembolism from prosthesis in the setting of sub-therapeutic INR especially when the coronary vasculature is normal and etiology is not clear. We are presenting a case of 56-year-old patient who developed ST elevation MI during treatment of IE of mechanical aortic valve. Cardiac catheterization showed a very subtle blockade at most distal end of LAD therefore percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) could not be carried out...

We report of a 57-year-old female patient who underwent a hemipelvectomy with a hemipelvic replacement in 1992. In 2013 the implanted material had to be partially removed due to a periprothetic infection. At that time a palacos spacer was implanted which penetrated two years later into the colon cavity.

Neglected and underestimated in the past, Propionibacterium acnes is currently the most prevalent organism associated with deep prosthetic infections around the shoulder. Surprisingly, it has never been reported as a cause of infection in the hand. Here we report a case of a late presentation of a P. acnes infection in a metacarpophalangeal joint replacement, resulting in chronic low-grade pain with movement. The patient underwent a 2-stage revision, with initial removal of the prosthesis. Positive cultures for P...

AIMS: The Intraosseous Transcutaneous Amputation Prosthesis (ITAP) may improve quality of life for amputees by avoiding soft-tissue complications associated with socket prostheses and by improving sensory feedback and function. It relies on the formation of a seal between the soft tissues and the implant and currently has a flange with drilled holes to promote dermal attachment. Despite this, infection remains a significant risk. This study explored alternative strategies to enhance soft-tissue integration...

Management of an infected total elbow replacement is a significant clinical challenge. Although preservation of the prosthesis is ideal, a 2-stage revision is often necessary. Unlike lower limb arthroplasty, antibiotic spacers are not commercially available. Monoblock cement spacers do not allow elbow movements and are therefore associated with severe stiffness and scarring, leading to poor clinical outcomes. In our paper we present a simple and novel technique for constructing an articulating antibiotic-impregnated spacer for use as an implant for a 1-stage revision of an infected elbow arthroplasty...

BACKGROUND: Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with a rotating-hinge prosthesis is considered a salvage procedure. While excellent immediate stability is achieved, the historically high failure rate has tempered its use. The goal of this study was to determine clinical outcomes, radiographic results, and survivorship after TKA with contemporary rotating-hinge components. METHODS: We identified 408 consecutive TKAs performed with rotating-hinge components for nononcologic indications from 2002 to 2012 at a single academic institution...

BACKGROUND: Oxidized zirconium (Oxinium) was introduced as an alternative bearing surface to cobalt-chromium (CoCr) in an attempt to reduce polyethylene wear and decrease aseptic mechanical failure of total knee replacements. While noncomparative reports have been described as promising, we were aware of no short or long-term clinical studies showing the superiority of Oxinium on polyethylene as a bearing surface. Using data from a comprehensive national joint replacement registry, we compared the long-term outcomes after cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with an Oxinium femoral component and those with the same prosthetic design but with a CoCr femoral component...
