BACKGROUND: Although surgery can provide definitive treatment for de Quervain's tenosynovitis, nonoperative treatment could be preferable if symptoms are predictably relieved. We sought to determine the effectiveness of corticosteroid injections as treatment for de Quervain's tenosynovitis and to evaluate patient characteristics as predictors of treatment outcome. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted using our institutional database International Classification of Disease, version 9 (ICD-9) code list for de Quervain's tenosynovitis...

Complex proximal humerus fractures in elderly patients represent a difficult problem for orthopaedic surgeons. Classically, treatment methods have included nonoperative management, open reduction and internal fixation, and hemiarthroplasty. Outcomes of nonoperative management for these complex fractures have been poor, and results of traditional operative techniques are variable at best. Over the past several years, reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) has been increasingly employed in these injuries with encouraging results...

INTRODUCTION: Clavicular shortening due to non-anatomical healing of displaced clavicular fractures is believed to have a negative effect on shoulder function after recovery. The evidence for this, however, is equivocal. This review aimed to systematically evaluate the available literature to determine whether the current beliefs about clavicular shortening can be substantiated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This systematic review was performed following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement...

Stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) is a method for invasive study of patients with refractory epilepsy. Localization of the epileptogenic zone in SEEG relied on the hypothesis of anatomo-electro-clinical analysis limited by X-ray, analog electroencephalography (EEG), and seizure semiology in the 1950s. Modern neuroimaging studies and digital video-EEG have developed the hypothesis aiming at more precise localization of the epileptic network. Certain clinical scenarios favor SEEG over subdural EEG (SDEEG). SEEG can cover extensive areas of bilateral hemispheres with highly accurate sampling from sulcal areas and deep brain structures...

With the current data concentrating on different operative treatment options for plantar plate tears, few data can be found on possible nonoperative treatment strategies for this entity and the specifics of such treatment. In the present case report, the successful nonoperative treatment of a patient with a rupture of the plantar plate in a lesser toe metatarsophalangeal joint is presented. The patient was followed up using repeat clinical examinations and high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging scans for 1 year after the imitation of therapy to provide information on the different stages of the healing process...

OBJECTIVE: A dearth of information exists in the literature regarding current practice in the management of Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome (KTS), a rare condition. We review and describe the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of KTS. METHODS: Relevant data were synthesized from a Medline review using a combination of the keyterms "Klippel" and "Trénaunay." The majority of hits described singular case reports and were subsequently excluded. The remaining papers were then reviewed and included on the basis of the quality of evidence and the authors' discretion...

Amyoplasia congenita, or "classic distal arthrogryposis," is the most common disorder among the congenital, non-progressive, multiple joint contractural conditions named arthrogryposis. The cause remains unknown, and it occurs sporadically. Abnormal neurological examination indicates that movement in utero was diminished as a result of an abnormality of the central or peripheral nervous system, the motor end plate, or muscle. The absence of central neural pathology indicates the origin in akinetic fetal condition...

Traumatic dislocation of the subtalar joint is an infrequently occurring injury, with open true posterior dislocation an even rarer injury. We describe our treatment of a young motorcyclist who was brought into hospital after a road traffic accident, having sustained an open posterior subtalar dislocation. After initial reduction and resuscitation in the emergency department, he was taken to the operating theater for emergent wound debridement and external fixation of his ankle using a unilateral external fixator device...

Metaphyseal and proximal diaphyseal fractures of the lateral column metatarsals can have problems with healing. In particular, those involving the fifth metatarsal have been associated with a high nonunion rate with nonoperative treatment. Although intramedullary screw fixation results in a high union rate, delayed healing and complications can occur. We describe an innovative technique to treat both acute and chronic injuries involving the metatarsal base from the metaphysis to the proximal diaphyseal bone of the fourth and fifth metatarsals...

Instability of the patella is a common cause of knee pain and dysfunction in pediatric and adolescent patients and can be due to several factors. Although some patients will recall a specific traumatic event others may not, requiring the diagnosis to be made on the basis of physical examination and imaging. Congenital dislocation and connective tissue disorders should also be considered, even in the setting of trauma. There are radiographic parameters that may identify causes of instability such as trochlear and patellar abnormalities, and magnetic resonance imaging can identify signs of trauma such as bony edema, loose osteochondral fragments, and increased tibial tubercle-trochlear groove distance...

The fabella is an anatomic variant not seen in all individuals and can potentially be a source of chronic knee pain due to chondromalacia, osteoarthritis, fractures, or biomechanical pressure against the lateral femoral condyle. It is situated intra-articular, close to the lateral femoral condyle, the lateral gastrocnemius head tendon, and the fabellofibular ligament. Given its rarity, the diagnosis of a symptomatic fabella is often overlooked when evaluating patients with persistent posterolateral knee pain...

REVIEW
John Chao, Andrew Pao
Symptomatic osteochondral lesions of the talus remain a challenging problem due to inability for cartilage lesions to heal. Numerous treatment options exist, including nonoperative management, marrow stimulating techniques, and autograft-allograft. Arthroscopic marrow stimulation forms fibrocartilage that has been shown to be biomechanically weaker than hyaline cartilage. Restorative tissue transplantation options are being used more for larger and cystic lesions. Newer biologics and particulated juvenile cartilage are currently under investigation for possible clinical efficacy...

James H Calandruccio, Murphy M Steiner
Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is a frequent cause of elbow pain; most patients (80%-90%) are successfully treated with standard nonoperative methods (rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bracing, and physical therapy). Autologous blood injections and platelet-rich plasma injections are the two most frequently used orthobiologic techniques in the treatment of lateral epicondylitis. Studies of the effectiveness of autologous blood injections and platelet-rich plasma report varying outcomes, some citing significant clinical relief and others reporting no beneficial effect...

Patients with articular cartilage lesions of the hip may present with pain and symptoms that may be vague in nature and onset. Therefore, a thorough history and physical examination should be performed for every patient presenting with hip pain and/or disability. The management may be operative or nonoperative. Nonoperative management includes a trial of rest and/or activity modification, along with anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, and biologic injections. Operative treatment in the form of arthroscopic techniques continues to decrease morbidity and offer innovative solutions and new applications for microfracture, ACT, and AMIC...

Sourav K Poddar, Luke Widstrom
Nonoperative options for articular cartilage injury are pervasive but have not shown to be curative. Recommendations for low-impact exercise and weight loss provide benefit and are a foundation for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Judicious use of NSAIDs and acetaminophen can be appropriate for pain management. Topical NSAIDs may be a treatment option with fewer side effects than its oral counterpart. Additionally, viscosupplementation injections are useful for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis, whereas short-term pain relief is provided by intra-articular corticosteroid injections...

Clayton A Smith, Lisa A Kachnic
Management of locally advanced rectal cancer has evolved over time from surgical resection alone to multimodality therapy with preoperative radiation, chemotherapy, and total mesorectal excision resulting in excellent local control rates. Refinements in neoadjuvant therapies and their sequencing have improved pathologic complete response rates such that consideration of selective radiation and nonoperative management are now active clinical trial questions. Advances in radiation treatment planning and delivery techniques may allow for further reduction in acute treatment-related toxicity in select patient populations...
