BACKGROUND: The long-term aesthetic appearance of scars is of great importance to patients. Biobrane (Smith and Nephew, Fort Worth, Texas), a biosynthetic skin dressing, is a successfully established dressing for the treatment of superficial wounds. A new silk barrier dressing (Dressilk; Prevor, Moulin de Verville, France) has also shown good results in wound healing. This study evaluated the long-term scar quality of superficial wounds treated with these dressings. METHODS: From February 2012 to May 2013, 11 patients with burns in need of skin grafting received donor site treatment...

Suture button-based femoral cortical suspension constructs of anterior cruciate ligament grafts can facilitate a fast and secure fixation. However, there are several case reports showing button malpositioning resulting from the inability to visualize the "flipped" button. Many current surgical techniques do not allow direct visualization of EndoButtons (Smith & Nephew, Andover, MA) in their final position, making it difficult to ensure that both buttons are fully flipped and that there is no soft-tissue interposition between the button and femur...

Anterior cruciate ligament injury is one of the most common ligament injuries of the knee in sports medicine. The treatment of choice is anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, which requires an experienced surgeon. Complications may occur at every step of the procedure. The surgeon should be especially careful when performing the step of femoral tunnel creation. Damage to the medial femoral condyle (MFC) could occur; thus, the full functional outcome of the knee might be affected. There are many surgical techniques to avoid MFC injury...

PURPOSE: Cortical suspensory devices are routinely used for femoral side fixation of soft tissue graft in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical properties of a new adjustable loop device (GraftMax®) compared with established devices (EndoButton® and TightRope®) in ACL reconstruction and to investigate whether knotting the free end of TightRope could improve biomechanical properties. METHODS: The three cortical suspensory devices (GraftMax® Button; Conmed, EndoButton® CL; Smith & Nephew, and TightRope® RT; Arthrex) were tested under cyclic load (50-250 N for 1000 cycles) and pull-to-failure conditions at 50 mm/h in a device-only setup using a tensile testing machine...

BACKGROUND: A novel revision technique for failed hip resurfacings involves retention of the acetabular cup, if well-fixed, which is mated to dual-mobility (DM) prosthesis in a traditional hip replacement configuration. It is unknown whether existing damage on the retained cup will result in unacceptable wear of the DM prosthesis. METHODS: Thirty retrieved Birmingham (Smith & Nephew) monoblock cups were visually scored for damage features and area of coverage. Surface roughness measurements were obtained within each damage feature as well as reference points on each cup...

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic non-infectious neutrophilic dermatosis that causes undermining ulcers. Topical therapies for the deep ulcers of pyoderma gangrenosum have not been established. To investigate whether negative-pressure wound therapy is effective for a pyoderma gangrenosum ulcer, we used the PICO single use negative-pressure wound therapy system (Smith & Nephew, London, UK) for two pyoderma gangrenosum patients. In these cases, the ulcers decreased in size and necrolytic tissue was removed notably...

BACKGROUND: Implant manufacturers proclaim that the tapers of modular total hip arthroplasty are not standardized and can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. That is why the combination of various components from different manufacturers ("Mix and Match") is not permitted. In this study, different taper combinations were investigated experimentally to assess the effect of "Mix and Match" regarding the taper connection strength. METHODS: Torque-off tests using hip stems and metal femoral heads from 6 different implant manufacturers were performed...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical instrumentation is now available to facilitate wound debridement. The 2 primary options involve different energy applications, but both have the potential to spray. The Versajet II (Smith & Nephew, London, UK) utilizes a high-powered water jet to disrupt tissue and remove debris by means of the Venturi effect. The SonicVac (Misonix, Farmingdale, NY) is a direct-contact, low-frequency ultrasound debriding device. It delivers a high-energy ultrasound to a wound surface via a fluid medium, causing bubble cavitation, a physical effect of rapid pressure waves causing bubbles to form and implode that releases mechanical energy...

BACKGROUND: Reducing polyethylene (PE) wear by increasing the cross-linking encouraged surgeons to hope for increased total knee arthroplasty (TKA) survival rates. Different methods of manufacturing cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) were introduced, following promising in vitro results. Is there a measurable effect of cross-linking on TKA survival? METHODS: A registry study was conducted, focusing on fixed tibial inserts in primary TKA. Conventional PE represented 87% of the liners, 10% were cross-linked and 2% were antioxidant PE...
