BACKGROUND: Adverse Reaction to Metal Debris (ARMD) is still a major reason for revision surgeries in patients with metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacements. ARMD consists of a wide range of alterations in periprosthetic tissues, most important of which are metallosis, inflammation, pseudotumors and necrosis. Studies investigating histopathological findings and their association to implant wear or indirect measures of wear have yielded inconsistent results. Therefore, we aimed to investigate bearing surface wear volume, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion concentrations, histopathological findings in periprosthetic tissues and their associations...

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure wherein small holes are created across the stratum corneum while keeping the epidermis partially intact. This produces microchannels that increase skin permeability and simultaneously stimulate growth factor release. Since the epidermis is retained, microneedling has less risk of infection, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, and scarring compared to other resurfacing modalities. This is a review of the literature on microneedling in the treatment of textural abnormalities, specifically rhytides, scars, and striae...

We describe a technique of small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE)-assisted sutureless corneal resurfacing with interface tattooing for superficial limbal dermoids. After excision at a plane minimally below surrounding normal cornea and sclera, a corneal tattoo powder is carefully applied within an inked circular outline of the intended corneal margin. Circularity and cosmesis are assessed in natural light with the microscope light off. Fibrin glue-assisted corneal resurfacing is performed with the lenticule...

BACKGROUND: Implant registries have proved valuable in assessing the outcomes of arthroplasty procedures. Moreover, by identifying lesser quality implants they have indirectly improved the quality of care. The registry of prosthetic shoulder implants was established in 2008. METHODS: It records information on all types of primary and revision arthroplasty procedures involving the glenohumeral joint, including reverse and total arthroplasty, hemiarthroplasty, resurfacing, removal, and any other surgical procedures that are required to manage these patients...

#5
Sahil Kooner, Herman Johal, Marcia Clark
Background: Interest in bicompartmental knee arthroplasty (BKA) for the treatment of medial patellofemoral osteoarthritis (MPFOA) has grown in recent years because BKA offers a bone and ligament-preserving alternative to total knee arthroplasty (TKA). BKA only resurfaces the diseased compartments, while preserving proprioception and native knee kinematics. Therefore, the objective of this study is to assess knee function, perioperative morbidity, and implant survivability in patients undergoing BKA vs TKA for MPFOA...

Background and purpose - The number of patients where shoulder hemiarthroplasty (SHA) is an option is still substantial. Descriptive analyses performed by the Swedish Shoulder Arthroplasty Registry (SSAR) showed that while patients receiving SHA designs, i.e. resurfacing hemi (RH) and stemmed hemi (SH), reported similar shoulder functionality and quality of life, the revision rate for RH (12%) was larger than for SH (6.7%); this difference was studied. Patients and methods - All primary SHA (n = 1,140) for OA reported to SSAR between 1999 and 2009 were analyzed regarding risk factors for revision and PROM outcome, 950 shoulders with primary OA (POA), and 190 secondary OA (SOA)...

The aim of the study is to provide some characteristic parameters of the anatomy of metatarsals from computed tomography (CT) scans. These data are important for more anatomical metatarsal head resurfacing prosthesis conception. Measures were performed on 20 CT scans from 17 patients with a mean age of 44.35 ± 15.75 years old. The panel was composed of 40% male and 50% left feet. Measurements were divided in 2 distinct categories: linear measurements with length of metatarsal, head radius and head, and diaphysis and base thicknesses, and cross-sectional area measurements, including cortical and cancellous bone area at 10%, 25%, 50%, 60%, 75%, and 90% of the metatarsal's length...

The poor results obtained in young patients when using a conventional prosthesis led to the resurgence of hip resurfacing to find less invasive implants for the bone. Young patients present a demand for additional activity, which makes them a serious challenge for the survival of implants. In addition, new information technologies contribute decisively to the preference for non-cemented prostheses. Maintaining quality of life, preserving the bone and soft tissues, as well as achieving a very stable implant, are the goals of every hip orthopaedic surgeon for these patients...

This clinical study aimed at introducing a reconstructive method for total cheek soft tissue defects using the pre-expanded medial arm flap and to maximally reduce donor site morbidities simultaneously. A retrospective review of data was performed for 3 patients requiring the pre-expanded medial arm flap to reconstruct total cheek defects. The donor site in the medial arm was primarily closed using a pedicle parascapular or thoracodorsal artery perforator flap. All patients had a total unilateral cheek defect after lesion removal...

BACKGROUND: In total knee arthroplasty (TKA), handling of the patella surface is still quite controversial. We carried out a prospective randomized study to compare circumpatellar electrocautery plus patella resurfacing vs circumpatellar electrocautery only in the single-staged bilateral TKA in Chinese population. METHODS: One hundred five patients diagnosed with late-staged osteoarthritis who received single-staged bilateral TKA were screened and 53 patients were included...

PURPOSE: The primary purpose of the study was to investigate if and how patellar bone tracer uptake (BTU) distribution in SPECT/CT is influenced by patellar resurfacing and the position of femoral and tibial TKA component position. METHODS: A total of 104 knees of 103 consecutive patients who underwent primary TKA were prospectively investigated. Primary patellar resurfacing was done in 40 knees while 64 had a TKA without patellar resurfacing. All patients underwent clinical assessment using the knee society score (KSS) and standardized radiographs and Tc-99m-HDP-SPECT/CT before and 12 and 24 months after TKA...

PURPOSE: Managing focal cartilage injuries in the middle-aged patient poses a challenge. Focal prosthetic inlay resurfacing has been proposed to be a bridge between biologics and conventional joint arthroplasty. Patient selection and accurate implant positioning is crucial to avoid increased contact pressure to the opposite cartilage surface. A customized femoral condyle implant for focal cartilage injuries was designed to precisely fit each patient's individual size and location of damage...

Symptomatic posttraumatic arthritis of the elbow in young patients is a disorder for which there is currently no satisfactory solution. In this case report we show the evolution of a comminuted fracture of the capitellum with trochlear extension (McKee typeIV) treated initially with open reduction and internal fixation that eventually required a resurfacing hemiarthroplasty of the capitellum and reconstruction of the lateral ligament complex. After this surgical procedure, the patient had evident improvement of pain and of elbow range of motion, keeping the possibility of performing other rescue techniques open if they were to be necessary in the future...

Hillard M Lazarus, Najla El Jurdi
Improving long-term outcomes of adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients remains a challenge. Major scientific and clinical advances have led to a better understanding of the disease biology, and the majority of patients achieve a complete remission (CR) after induction therapy. Relapse risk, however, remains considerable and is the leading cause of death in this patient population. Significant efforts to improve outcomes emphasize use of post-remission therapies such as hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), an increasingly utilized modality...
