PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate complications of the medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) procedure at our institution. METHODS: All cases of medial opening wedge HTO performed between 2001 and 2004 at our institution were identified. Medical records, operative reports, and radiographs were retrospectively reviewed for all patients who experienced a complication within 12 months postsurgery. All complications were identified for analysis...

BACKGROUND: We undertook this study to identify factors associated with surgical complications of complex fractures of the tibial plateau. METHODS: We designed a case-control study with 56 patients with a diagnosis of complex fracture in the tibial plateau (IV-VI Schatzker) and with 12.9 +/- 3.2 (8-18) months of follow-up. Risk factor exposure was defined as having one or more of the following characteristics: age >60 years; co-morbidity (diabetes mellitus, systemic arterial hypertension); time of "Kidde" (>60, >90, >120 min) and fracture type IV, V or VI...

We evaluated the midterm results of high tibial osteotomy in patients with medial compartment arthritis. This study included 53 patients treated with high tibial osteotomy accompanied by either internal fixation (group A, n=26) or Ilizarov-type external fixator (group B, n=27). Clinical assessment of patients was performed using Hospital of Special Surgery scoring. Radiography was based on orientation angles of the knee (medial proximal tibial angle, lateral distal femoral angle, posterior proximal tibial angle) and mechanic axis alignment test...

BACKGROUND: Although high tibial osteotomy has been proved effective for the treatment of painful osteoarthritis of the medial compartment of the knee, the role of proximal tibial varus osteotomy for the treatment of painful osteoarthritis of the lateral compartment still remains controversial. METHODS: From 1974 to 1993, we performed proximal tibial varus osteotomy for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the lateral compartment of the knee in thirty-six consecutive patients...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate complications of laparoscopic hysterectomy. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of complications was tabulated from hospital and office records. Forty-five consecutive patients had laparoscopic hysterectomies from November 1991 to November 1992. Complications were divided into operative, anesthetic, postoperative, nursing, and equipment. Each complication was subjectively graded from mild to severe. RESULTS: Complication rates by group were: operative 11%, anesthetic 7%, postoperative 16%, nursing 4%, and equipment 56%...

From February 1982 through July 1987, the author studied 87 patients who had a total of 116 meniscus tears, 96 of which were repaired. Seventy patients (79 meniscus repairs) had postoperative followup ranging from 12 months to 5 1/2 years (mean, 39 months). The patients' ages ranged from 14 to 51 years with a mean age of 22. The time from injury to surgery ranged from 1 week to 6 years. Twenty-five percent of the injuries were considered acute, i.e., less than 6 weeks after the injury, and 75% of the injuries were considered chronic...

Forty-two months follow-up examinations on 30 total knee arthroplasties revealed the following significant complications: phlebothrombosis, 13 knees (46%); pulmonary embolism 3 patients (11%); asymptomatic loosening, 8 knees (11.4%); symptomatic loosening, 3 knees (4.8%); superficial infections, 4 knees (5.4%); deep infections, 4 knees (5.4%); peroneal palsy, 3 patients (4.3%). Early detection of thrombophlebitis by 125I fibrinogen scan and possible aspirin prophylaxis were evaluated. In view of the limited number of encouraging results, e...

The total condylar knee prosthesis is a non-hinged surface replacement which can be used for almost all knee deformities. This report discusses the first consecutive 220 arthroplasties in 183 patients. Follow-up time was three to five years. Before operation eighty-six knees had more than 10 degrees of fixed varus deformity and thirty-one knees had more than 10 degrees of fixed valgus deformity. All patients were assessed using The Hospital for Special Surgery scoring system. Of the total of 220 knees, 137 (62%) were rated excellent; sixty-one (28%), good; ten (4...
