OBJECTIVE: The authors describe a modified technique for placement of the C1 lateral mass screw using a Steinmann pin as a guide. This technique minimizes dissection and provides atlantoaxial stabilization during arthrodesis. METHODS: In our technique, a non-threaded 1.6mm spade-tip Steinmann pin is placed into the lateral mass of C1 to serve as a guide over which a powered drill is used for screw insertion. Perioperative data were collected for consecutive patients who underwent a C1-2 arthrodesis that involved the modified technique between March 2010 and July 2016...

Chronic osteomyelitis involving the distal femur often results in amputation or arthrodesis. This article presents three cases of chronic osteomyelitis treated with a staged approach culminating in endoprosthetic reconstruction. Stage one involved resection of infected bone and placement of an intramedullary nail spanning the bony defect between proximal femur and tibia, with antibiotic cement packed around the nail. Patients were then placed on long-term IV +/- oral antibiotics to clear the infection. A "cooldown" period was then used between stages where patients were off antibiotics and inflammatory markers were monitored for signs of remaining infection...

Sanjay Kumar, S V Sonanis
Pes planovalgus is the commonest foot deformity in children and presents with wide range of severity and symptoms. Surgery is mostly indicated for significant malalignment, resistant to non-surgical management. Lateral column lengthening is considered an appealing option as does not involve arthrodesis and allows for further growth and foot development. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review on lateral column lengthening for pes planovalgus deformity in line with PRISMA-P Checklist...

Malreduction of a distal fibular fracture can lead to degenerative changes in the ankle joint. Previous studies have shown that the selective use of various fibular reconstructive osteotomies may halt the progression of degenerative arthritis by restoring the normal tibiotalar contact area and decreasing the stresses on the articular cartilage. In this case report, we achieved alignment with restoration of the talocrural angle and Shenton's line of the ankle using a transfibular osteotomy and an allogeneic fresh-frozen femoral head graft to fill the resultant defect...

BACKGROUND: Ankle arthrodesis has been the traditional surgical treatment for end-stage hindfoot arthritis. However, utilization of total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) is increasing as surgical techniques and implants have substantially improved. The purpose of this study was to compare the U.S. national rates of perioperative (in-hospital) complications between a statistically matched cohort of patients who underwent either an ankle arthrodesis or a TAA. METHODS: Data from the 2002 to 2013 Nationwide Inpatient Sample releases were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Plasma cell neoplasmas are a heterogenous group of neoplastic tumor lesions occurring secondary to disordered proliferation of cells from a monocyte lineage. Plasmacytoma is a rare lesion that accounts for 5% of all plasma cell neoplasms. The current recommended treatment for solitary plasmacytoma is moderate dose radiation therapy. For patients who are suffering from axial back pain, spinal instability, radiculopathy, or bowel/bladder dysfunction secondary to spinal cord compression, surgical intervention with spinal decompression and stabilization can be used as an adjuvant to radiation therapy...

INTRODUCTION: As the number of reversed shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) procedures increases, the revision rate will also increase. In case of severe bone insufficiency, instability or infection of the primary RSA, revision to another RSA is preferable but not always possible. Hemiarthroplasty (HA), spacers and resection arthroplasty (RA) have been described in this indication. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2004 and 2016, 20 shoulders in 19 patients were treated at Ghent University Hospital for failed revision of RSA...

Total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) and ankle arthrodesis (AA) are complicated surgeries that carry a learning curve with them. Complications are an aspect of all surgeries that must be considered. Surgeons must be prepared to handle these complications. The most important things are early identification and treatment of these complications. Treating complications is a combination of medicines, conservative measures, and most importantly surgical intervention. Recent studies have shown a decrease in complications of TAA and AA over the past 10 years...

Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis provides an alternative to open techniques. Advancements in arthroscopic techniques and instrumentation have made the procedure easier to perform. Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis has demonstrated faster rates of union, fewer complications, reduced postoperative pain, and shorter hospital stays. Sound surgical techniques, particularly with regard to joint preparation, are critical for success. Comorbidities such as increased body mass index, history of smoking, malalignment, and posttraumatic arthritis should be considered when contemplating arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis...

First described in 1879, ankle arthrodesis is a procedure that has undergone significant advancements not only in technique but also in technology and fixation. Surgeon preference has often dictated those changes with regard to incisional approaches, fixation methods, and use of bone graft and biologics but one constant has always remained: open ankle arthrodesis is a predictable, time-tested procedure with consistent results when performed in appropriate patients. This article highlights the changes that have occurred since the introduction of this procedure and provides a brief overview of the preferred technique...
