BACKGROUND: The outcome of revision surgery in arthroplasty is based on a precise diagnosis. In addition, the treatment varies based on whether the prosthetic failure is caused by aseptic or septic loosening. Algorithms can help to identify periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) and standardize diagnostic steps, however, algorithms tend to oversimplify the treatment of complex cases. We conducted a process analysis during the implementation of a PJI algorithm to determine problems and deviations associated with the implementation of this algorithm...

Temporomandibular joint arthrocentesis and arthroscopy have recently exceeded open surgeries for disorders that failed to respond to conservative treatment. The efficacy of arthrocentesis in reestablishing normal mouth opening and reducing pain and dysfunctions is now commonly accepted, but in contrast to arthroscopy, there are no large series studies on arthrocentesis complications. We report the major complication occurred in our experience: a case of a patient that complained of a violent vertigo, without hearing disorders, following the procedure...

BACKGROUND: Femoral nerve blockade (FNB) provides effective postoperative analgesia in children undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery as evidenced by their opioid-sparing effects and decreased postoperative pain scores. Increasing the local anesthetic concentration in peripheral nerve blockade for adults undergoing orthopedic surgery has been shown to be beneficial, increasing block success rate, and providing a longer duration of analgesia. The effect of increasing the concentration of local anesthetic in extremity blocks in children remains largely unexplored...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a clinical treatment algorithm for posterior ankle impingement (PAI) syndrome in professional football players. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A case series of 26 elite professional football players diagnosed and treated for posterior ankle impingement syndrome were included for the study. All of the athletes received conservative treatment with physical therapy modalities initially. If the first line medical treatment and rehabilitation was ineffective to alleviate the symptoms, ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection was proposed and thereafter the patients underwent posterior ankle arthroscopy if the complaints are still unresolved...

Victor Ortiz-Declet, Benjamin G Domb
Hip arthroscopy in nonarthritic patients 60 or older has been increasingly reported in short-term outcome studies. The rise in hip-preservation operations in this population has been associated with encouraging improvements in patient-reported outcome scores. More stringent radiographic indications (at least 2 mm of joint space and Tönnis osteoarthritis grade ≤1) during patient selection have also yielded better outcomes. Delayed gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of cartilage is another tool that should be considered during preoperative planning...

A 59-year-old woman with a painful right knee that became locked in extension after a trivial trauma was seen at the emergency room. This was caused by unloaded hyperextension in bed. She was diagnosed with a superior dislocation of the patella. A closed reduction was performed, but a recurrent episode was seen within a week. An arthroscopy was performed, in which the causative osteophytes were removed. In the 12-month follow-up after treatment, no recurrence was seen. A superior dislocation of the patella is caused by patellofemoral osteophytes that interlock...

The organization of health care establishments and perioperative care are essential for ensuring the quality of care and safety of patients undergoing outpatient surgery. In order to correctly inventory these organizations and practices, in 2013-2014, the French Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care organized an extensive practical survey in French ambulatory surgery units entitled the "OPERA" study (Organisation PERiopératoire de l'anesthésie en chirurgie Ambulatoire). From among all of the ambulatory surgery centres listed by the Agences Régionales de Santé [Regional Health Agencies, France], 206 public and private centres were randomly selected...

Shoulder arthroscopy offers a minimally invasive surgical approach to treat a variety of shoulder pathologies. The patient can be positioned in either the lateral decubitus or the beach chair position. This note and accompanying video describe the operating room setup for shoulder arthroscopy in the lateral decubitus position, including positioning of the arms, head, and sterile preparation and draping. Appropriate lateral decubitus positioning for shoulder arthroscopy with careful attention to detail will promote ease of surgical intervention and minimize complications...

Acquisition of arthroscopic skills is not always easy and can be time-consuming. Simulation in arthroscopy improves surgical skills and can bridge the gap between reduced surgical exposure and training time and the need to reach a required level of competency. We propose a method to create a simple and cost-effective arthroscopic skills simulator using readily available materials and a low-cost Web camera available from online shops. This arthroscopic simulation device can be used to improve skills of all levels of trainees at home, in a bioskills laboratory, or in the theater...

Many of the described labral-reconstruction procedures are purely arthroscopic. This approach only allows segmentary reconstructions. For more extensive reconstructions, surgical dislocation of the hip still represents the more suitable approach. We present an arthroscopy-assisted procedure combined with an anterior mini-open approach, which could be considered for reconstruction of nonrepairable labral lesions located in the posterior aspect of the acetabulum and massive reconstructions in cases of global-pincer femoroacetabular impingement and protrusio acetabuli...
