PURPOSE: To create a biomechanical model of palmar midcarpal instability by selective ligament sectioning and to analyze treatment by simulated partial wrist arthrodesis. METHODS: Nine fresh-frozen cadaver arms were moved through 3 servohydraulic actuated motions and 2 passive wrist mobilizations. The dorsal radiocarpal, triquetrohamate, scaphocapitate, and scaphotrapeziotrapezoid ligaments were sectioned to replicate palmar midcarpal instability. Kinematic data for the scaphoid, lunate, and triquetrum were recorded before and after ligament sectioning and again after simulated triquetrohamate arthrodesis (TqHA) and radiolunate arthrodesis (RLA)...

Conversion of ankle arthrodesis to total ankle arthroplasty has recently gained popularity. However, technical challenges are present when treating patients without a sufficient fibular buttress. We describe a technique for restoration of an adequate fibular buttress using an iliac crest bone graft or malleolar relocation. The results of 10 patients with an average follow-up period of 56 (range 24 to 123) months are presented. Of the 10 patients, 3 underwent tricortical iliac bone augmentation of the fibula, 4 underwent repositioning of the remnant fibula, and in 3, the in situ fibula was used...

Orthopedic complications of intravenous (IV) infiltration are rare, with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. Because of the relatively high rate of IV infiltration in neonates, however, such complications do occur and can include growth arrest, limb length discrepancy, and joint deformities that require surgical intervention. The risk of these complications is highest in preterm neonates. A 7-year-old girl presented to our institution with a severe valgus hindfoot deformity that developed secondary to a neonatal IV infiltration injury...

BACKGROUND: Hallux rigidus is a common cause of foot pain in the elderly and has a negative impact on quality of life. Several operative treatment options are available for feet that are refractory to conservative treatment. Of these, total joint replacement and arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint are the most commonly performed interventions. Nevertheless, it is still not known which intervention results in the best clinical outcome and the fewest complications. METHODS: PubMed/MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were systematically searched for studies assessing outcome with the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society-Hallux Metatarsophalangeal Interphalangeal (AOFAS-HMI) score, Foot Function Index (FFI), visual analog scale (VAS) for pain, or Short Form-36 (SF-36) in patients who underwent an arthrodesis or total joint replacement for the treatment of symptomatic hallux rigidus...

BACKGROUND: After septic failure of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and multiple revision operations resulting in impaired function, bone and/or soft-tissue damage a reconstruction with a revision arthroplasty might be impossible. Salvage procedures to regain mobility and quality of life are an above-the-knee amputation or knee arthrodesis. The decision process for the patient and surgeon is difficult and data comparing arthrodesis versus amputation in terms of function and quality of life are scarce...

BACKGROUND: First metatarsophalangeal (MTP-1) joint fusion is a reliable method for the correction of various deformities including hallux valgus and hallux rigidus. Ideal constructs provide high rates of fusion in desired alignment. The present study examines the union rates, as well as the change in dorsiflexion angle during the follow up period in patients who underwent MTP-1 fusion with a dorsal locking plate and a lag screw, versus patients fused with a dorsal locking plate alone...

Surgical management of end-stage hallux rigidus involves joint-sparing techniques, including cheilectomy and decompression osteotomies, and joint-destructive procedures, including arthroplasty (resection, interpositional, implant, Valenti) and arthrodesis. Joint-destructive procedures have traditionally been reserved for the end stages of hallux rigidus involving grade 3 and 4. We present a modification of the previously reported Valenti arthroplasty with short-term patient outcomes. We performed a retrospective review of the medical records of 96 patients who had undergone the nonimplant arthroplasty procedure for treatment of end-stage hallux rigidus with a minimum follow-up period of 6 months...

Treatment of large osseous defects remains a difficult surgical challenge. Autografts and allografts have been known to undergo late collapse, because these options are not specifically designed to withstand the high loads of the foot and ankle. The inability to achieve the correct shape for reconstruction further limits their application. Large osseous defects will result during salvage after failed Lapidus bunionectomy, explantation of failed total ankle replacements, and nonunion of Evans calcaneal osteotomy...

Pfeiffer syndrome is a rare hereditary condition with an autosomal dominant transmission caused by a mutation that affects fibroblast growth factor receptors. It is one of the acrocephalosyndactyly diseases causing cranial malformations owing to early suture fusion. In the foot, it is typically associated with hallux varus, first ray hyperplasia, and partial lesser digit syndactyly. We report a clinical case of a 10-year-old patient with Pfeiffer type I syndrome with bilateral severe hallux varus due to a hypoplastic trapezoidal shaped proximal phalanx, a distal, medial-facing articular surface, and interphalangeal instability...

The goals of cervical deformity surgery include deformity correction, restoration of horizontal gaze, decompression of neural elements, spinal stabilization with a biomechanically sound construct, and meticulous arthrodesis technique to prevent pseudoarthrosis and minimizing surgical complications. Many different surgical options exist, but selecting the correct approach that ensures the optimal clinical outcome can be challenging and often controversial. In this last part of the cervical deformity review series, various posterior deformity correction techniques are discussed in detail, along with an overview of surgical outcome and postoperative complications...

While cervical lordosis alteration is not uncommon after anterior cervical arthrodesis, its influence on radiological adjacent segment pathology (RASP) is still unclear. Biomechanical changes induced by arthrodesis may contribute to ASP onset. To investigate the correlation between cervical lordosis decrease and RASP onset after anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion (ACCF) and to determine its biomechanical effect on adjacent segments after surgery, 80 CSM patients treated with ACCF were retrospectively studied, and a baseline finite element model of the cervical spine as well as post-operation models with normal and decreased lordosis were established and validated...

BACKGROUND: Tibiotalocalcaneal (TTC) arthrodesis is a procedure commonly used as salvage surgery for various pathologic processes that compromise the ankle and subtalar joints. It is a reasonably standardized procedure when performed as a primary surgery in advanced stages of TTC arthritis. For such cases, there are several alternative approaches, fixation materials, and bone substitutes that can be used. Most represent valid options with similar results in the literature. However, in highly complex cases requiring TTC arthrodesis, the options for the approach and fixation material can be limited...
