Gabriele Potalivo, Walter Bugiantella
The snapping hip (SH) syndrome is characterised by an audible snapping, often accompanied by pain, which usually occurs with the flexion and extension of the hip during exercise or ordinary daily activities.The causes of SH can be classified as external, internal and intraarticular. The prevalence of asymptomatic SH in the population is unknown and the incidence of symptomatic cases is not well-defined. The painless snapping in the hip is common in the general population; the symptomatic SH with debilitating pain and weakness is often seen in those who take part in activities such as ballet and running hurdles...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are a vascular condition with significant risk attached, particularly if they rupture. It is, therefore, critical to identify and repair these as an elective procedure before they rupture and require emergency surgery. Repair has traditionally been an open surgical technique that required a large incision across the abdomen. Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs (EVARs) are now a common alternative. In this procedure, the common femoral artery is exposed via a cut-down approach and a graft introduced to the aneurysm in this way...

Flexible ureteroscopy is a highly resolving surgery which is able to solve most renal lithiasis of any Urology Department, with very low economic impact. It is a technique that has helped to continue treatment when SWL couldn't, and also has reduced the number of percutaneous renal surgeries that we currently perform. In this paper, we try review three important features of the operation: Technique, minimal requirements that we need to perform this surgery in a Urology Department, and the different possibilities to treat the lithiasis with holmium laser...

OBJECTIVE: The contribution of therapeutic ureteroscopy done by Perez Castro in 1980 varied the management algorithm for ureteral lithiasis worldwide. The techniques of Retrograde Ureteroscopy and transrenal antegrade ureteroscopy led to the abandonment of open surgery for the treatment of ureteral lithiasis. Only Shock wave lithotripsy has maintained similar success rates in selected cases. METHODS: Descriptive analysis of the semirigid and flexible ureteroscopy techniques performed in our department over the last 10 years giving detail on the technique and safety tips to increase the efficacy and efficiency of ureteroscopy...

3D printing technology has revolutionized and gradually transformed manufacturing across a broad spectrum of industries, including healthcare. Nowhere is this more apparent than in orthopaedics with many surgeons already incorporating aspects of 3D modelling and virtual procedures into their routine clinical practice. As a more extreme application, patient-specific 3D printed titanium truss cages represent a novel approach for managing the challenge of segmental bone defects. This review illustrates the potential indications of this innovative technique using 3D printed titanium truss cages in conjunction with the Masquelet technique...

Treatment strategies for medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) remain controversial. Although the AAOMS suggests a conservative approach, a surgical management with necrosectomy is often required when conservative management has failed. Moreover, recent studies have shown promising results using an early stage surgical treatment. Over the past decade, cell-based bone regeneration utilizing bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) received increased attention. MSCs are known to promote wound healing and induce new bone formation in compromised tissue...

BACKGROUND: General surgery training has historically lacked a standardized approach to resident Quality Improvement (QI) education aside from traditional Morbidity and Mortality conference. In 2013, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) formalized QI as a component of residency training. Our residency chose the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) Quality In-Training Initiative (QITI) as the foundation for our QI training. We hypothesized that a focused curriculum based on outcomes would produce change in culture and improve quality of patient care...
