Edward A Lin, Loukia K Papatheodorou, Dean G Sotereanos
PURPOSE: To determine whether open cheilectomy and debridement of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint is a safe and effective alternative to joint arthrodesis for the treatment of symptomatic osteoarthritis. METHODS: Seventy-eight patients with symptomatic DIP joint osteoarthritis and with a minimum follow-up of 24 months were retrospectively reviewed. Preoperative radiographs were graded. Open cheilectomy and debridement of the DIP joint was performed in all patients...

BACKGROUND: In children, high rates of occipitocervical (OC) fusion have been demonstrated using rigid instrumentation in combination with harvested autograft, with or without bone morphogenetic protein (BMP). Historically, the use of allograft materials demonstrated inferior OC fusion outcomes compared to autograft. However, autograft harvest harbors an increased risk of patient morbidity, and BMP use is costly and controversial in children. Thus, there remains a need for safer, less costly, yet efficacious techniques for OC fusion in the pediatric population...

Jeffrey D Seybold
Malunion remains a common complication after triple arthrodesis, with rates as high as 6% in the reported literature. Careful patient evaluation is critical to determine the location and degree of bony deformity. A stepwise systematic approach to correct hindfoot and midfoot deformity is presented in this article. Few studies have been published to guide foot and ankle surgeons with this difficult clinical scenario, but reports have demonstrated high success rates and low rates of complications after revision triple arthrodesis...

REVIEW
Todd A Irwin
The overcorrected flatfoot reconstruction is a less common but often difficult sequelae of surgical treatment of the adult acquired flatfoot deformity. Understanding the patient's symptoms and how they correlate to the procedures performed during the index surgery are paramount to determining the appropriate course of treatment. Patients' symptoms may resemble those seen in the cavovarus foot condition, often secondary to overlengthening of the lateral column or excessive displacement of the calcaneal tuberosity...

REVIEW
Stephen Greenfield, Bruce Cohen
Adult acquired flatfoot deformity is a debilitating condition typically affecting middle-aged patients. The multiple components include hindfoot valgus, first ray elevation, medial soft tissue compromise, and forefoot abduction. As the foot becomes unbalanced, the deformity progresses with repetitive loading and time. Untreated patients often need significant reconstructions or extensive arthrodesis after arthritis and joint contractures present. Medializing calcaneal osteotomy is the workhorse operation for correction of hindfoot valgus, reliably correcting deformity with a relatively low complication risk...

REVIEW
Anish R Kadakia, Armen S Kelikian, Mauricio Barbosa, Milap S Patel
Medial column instability is a primary deforming force in the setting of pes planovalgus deformity. Consideration for medial column stabilization only after correction of the hindfoot deformity may result in creating a rigid hindfoot, compromising clinical outcomes. Careful analysis of the lateral radiograph to determine whether the deformity is secondary to the medial column or true peritalar subluxation may allow superior outcomes. Iatrogenic creation of an excessively rigid medial column may lead to significant instability of the remaining joints in the short term and arthrosis in the long term...

REVIEW
Ezekiel Oburu, Mark S Myerson
Deltoid ligament reconstruction allows for joint preservation of the ankle in the setting of patients a triple arthrodesis due to a flat foot deformity. Although the increased forces that may occur in the ankle joint after a triple arthrodesis cannot be eliminated, reconstruction of the ligament will delay and may prevent the onset arthritis, allowing the patient to maintain mobility of the ankle joint. The anatomy, surgery, and risks and benefits are discussed.

Juliete M Diniz, Ricardo V Botelho
OBJECTIVE Thoracolumbar fractures account for 90% of spinal fractures, with the burst subtype corresponding to 20% of this total. Controversy regarding the best treatment for this condition remains. The traditional surgical approach, when indicated, involves spinal fixation and arthrodesis. Newer studies have brought the need for fusion associated with internal fixation into question. Not performing arthrodesis could reduce surgical time and intraoperative bleeding without affecting clinical and radiological outcomes...

BACKGROUND: The correlation between implant density and deformity correction has not yet led to a precise conclusion in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of low density (LD) and high density (HD) pedicle screw instrumentation in terms of the clinical, radiological and Scoliosis Research Society (SRS)-22 outcomes in Lenke 1 AIS. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 62 consecutive Lenke 1 AIS patients who underwent posterior spinal arthrodesis using all-pedicle screw instrumentation with a minimum follow-up of 24 months...

BACKGROUND: There is a growing concern that the use of prescription opioids following surgical interventions, including spine surgery, may predispose patients to chronic opioid use and abuse. We sought to estimate the proportion of patients using opioids up to 1 year after discharge following common spinal surgical procedures and to identify factors associated with sustained opioid use. METHODS: This study utilized 2006 to 2014 data from TRICARE insurance claims obtained from the Military Health System Data Repository...

The aim of this study was to determine and analyze the functional and radiographic outcomes after proximal row carpectomy (PRC). We hypothesized that this surgery could restore wrist mobility and function in case of radiocarpal osteoarthritis or severe carpal trauma. Sixty-two patients who had undergone PRC were included in this study: 44 patients with wrist osteoarthritis (11 SNAC, 24 SLAC, 3 Kienböck's disease, 6 other) and 18 patients with severe carpal trauma. Each patient underwent clinical (pain, range of motion, grip strength, functional scores) and radiographic evaluations...

James W Brodsky, Justin M Kane, Akira Taniguchi, Scott Coleman, Yahya Daoud
BACKGROUND: The decision tree for the operative treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis involves either ankle arthrodesis (AA) or total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). Although both have documented success providing diminished pain, improved patient-centered outcomes, and improved objective measures of function, arthroplasty is unique in its ability to preserve motion at the tibiotalar joint. Arthroplasty procedures are normally thought of as a motion-sparing surgery rather than a motion-producing procedure, which may limit its success in patients with stiff ankles...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic injuries to the tarsometatarsal or Lisfranc joints can be complex problems associated with long-term morbidity. Currently there is no clear consensus regarding optimal fixation methods. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between time from injury to treatment and treatment method with outcome. It is hypothesized that patients who underwent open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) more acutely would have higher return to duty rates. METHODS: This study is a retrospective review of 171 low-energy closed tarsometatarsal dislocations and fracture dislocations in patients identified using a Department of Defense trauma registry...

Jian Fan, X Zhang, Y Luo, G W You, W K Ng, Y F Yang
BACKGROUND: Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis is most common and effective surgical treatment for severe hindfoot pathology, but the fusion rate is often lower than the ordinary tibiotalar arthrodesis because of the more serious joint disease associated with obvious deformity and osteoporosis. Recent literature describe tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with reverse PHILOS plate with good clinical outcome result, though some patients non-union, due to eccentric force of the plate may be hidden...

PURPOSE: We report 3- to 8-year follow-up results for the first tarsometatarsal joint derotational arthrodesis. METHODS: A total of 70 patients (88 feet) with symptomatic flexible hallux valgus were operated between 2003 and 2009. In all, 66 patients (94.3%) with 84 (95.5%) feet were enrolled in retrospective analysis; of those, 58 (87.9%) patients with 76 (90.5%) feet were followed for a mean of 5.1 (range: 3.0-8.3) years. Preoperative, 6 week postoperative, and late follow-up weightbearing radiographs were evaluated along with clinical examination and questionnaires...
