OBJECTIVE: The sensori-motor impairment of upper limb (UL) affects more than 50% of patients after stroke. The objective of this work was to study the efficiency of isokinetic muscle strengthening (IMS) in the chronic phase of stroke in this population. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: The patients underwent 6 weeks of outpatient rehabilitation, 3 days per week, combining physiotherapy (twice/day) and occupational therapy every day. The program was completed by 30 minutes elbow and wrist concentric slow speed IMS of flexor and extensor muscles, in the study group versus 30 minutes passive mobilisation of the joints carried out by the same isokinetic dynamometer in the control group...

In volleyball, the dominant shoulder of the athlete undergoes biomechanical and morphological adaptations; however, definitive conclusions about their exact nature, aetiology, purpose and associations with shoulder injury have not been reached. We present a systematic review of the existing literature describing biomechanical adaptations in the dominant shoulders of volleyball players and factors that may predispose to shoulder pain/injury. A thorough literature search via Medline, EMBASE and SCOPUS was conducted for original studies of volleyball players and 15 eligible articles were identified...

We report the case of an 11-year-old boy presenting with a type III tibial eminence fracture. The fracture fragment was reduced arthroscopically. Two 1.6 mm retrograde K-wires were inserted from the tibial metaphysis across the physis and into the fracture fragment using a standard anterior cruciate ligament tibial tunnel guide. Once the wires were clearly visible within the joint the tips were bent over by ∼120°. The wires were then tensioned around a single small fragment screw inserted into the tibial metaphysis...

AIMS: This non-blinded randomised controlled trial compared the effect of patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) versus local infiltration analgesia (LIA) within an established enhanced recovery programme on the attainment of discharge criteria and recovery one year after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The hypothesis was that LIA would increase the proportion of patients discharged from rehabilitation by the fourth post-operative day but would not affect outcomes at one year. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 242 patients were randomised; 20 were excluded due to failure of spinal anaesthesia leaving 109 patients in the PCEA group and 113 in the LIA group...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged need for intensive care is associated with neuromuscular weakness, termed Intensive Care Unit Acquired Weakness. Those affected suffer from severe functional impairment that can persist for years. First studies suggest a positive effect of physiotherapy and early mobilisation. However, the ideal intervention for a preferential functional outcome is not known. So far no randomised controlled trial has been conducted to specifically evaluate an early endurance and resistance training in the mechanically ventilated, critically ill patient...

AIMS: We assessed the difference in hospital based and early clinical outcomes between the direct anterior approach and the posterior approach in patients who undergo total hip arthroplasty (THA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: The outcome was assessed in 448 (203 males, 245 females) consecutive patients undergoing unilateral primary THA after the implementation of an 'Enhanced Recovery' pathway. In all, 265 patients (mean age: 71 years (49 to 89); 117 males and 148 females) had surgery using the direct anterior approach (DAA) and 183 patients (mean age: 70 years (26 to 100); 86 males and 97 females) using a posterior approach...

BACKGROUND: Bennett's fracture is a partial intra-articular fracture, with two main fragments of the first metacarpal bone. Treatment should aim to rebuild the articular surface and to achieve early mobilisation of the thumb saddle joint. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the operation of direct screw osteosynthesis of a Bennet's fracture by a Gedda/Moberg radiopalmar incision in a video. PATIENT: During distortion of the thumb, a 31-year old patient suffered a Bennets's fracture, which was operated by direct screw osteosynthesis...

BACKGROUND: The aim of surgical treatment of pelvic ring and acetabular fractures is to allow rapid mobilisation of patients in order to restore stance and gait stability (postural control), as this significantly correlates with a positive outcome. The regulation of postural stability is mainly controlled by transmission of proprioceptive stimuli. In addition, the pelvis serves as a connection between the legs and the spine and thus is also of great importance for mechanical stabilisation...

AIMS: Animal models have been developed that allow simulation of post-traumatic joint contracture. One such model involves contracture-forming surgery followed by surgical capsular release. This model allows testing of antifibrotic agents, such as rosiglitazone. METHODS: A total of 20 rabbits underwent contracture-forming surgery. Eight weeks later, the animals underwent a surgical capsular release. Ten animals received rosiglitazone (intramuscular initially, then orally)...

Pterygomaxillary dysjunction with an osteotome is commonly used to mobilise the maxilla during Le Fort I osteotomy, despite the risk of serious complications. Different instruments and positions have been tried, including dysjunction through the tuberosity. Down fracture by digital pressure alone has also been advocated, but to our knowledge has not been widely adopted. We have therefore reviewed published papers to see if there is any clinical or anatomical evidence for the use of osteotomes to mobilise the maxilla vertically during a Le Fort I osteotomy for either pterygomaxillary dysjunction or dysjunction through the tuberosity...

INTRODUCTION: Analyzing the different age groups in a population who suffered a pelvic ring fracture it becomes obvious that there are important differences between the pelvic ring lesions of an elderly patient compared to a young adult concerning trauma mechanism, fracture pattern and therapeutic options. In the elderly patient it is very important to achieve maximum of stability if surgery is necessary in order to avoid early failure of the ostheosynthesis under mobilization with full weight bearing...

We report a case of a prosthetic joint infection occurring secondary to group C Streptococcus following dental treatment in a 66-year-old woman. This patient presented 11 years following a right hip resurfacing procedure with increasing pain and difficulty mobilising the right hip. An ultrasound and MRI scan identified a collection in the right hip joint, which was subsequently aspirated. Cultures revealed a group C Streptococcus. Extensive washout and surgical debridement of the hip joint was undertaken and the patient was treated with a protracted course of antibiotics...
