Prepatellar bursectomy

Sebastian F Baumbach, Christopher M Lobo, Ilias Badyine, Wolf Mutschler, Karl-Georg Kanz
PURPOSE: Olecranon bursitis and prepatellar bursitis are common entities, with a minimum annual incidence of 10/100,000, predominantly affecting male patients (80 %) aged 40-60 years. Approximately 1/3 of cases are septic (SB) and 2/3 of cases are non-septic (NSB), with substantial variations in treatment regimens internationally. The aim of the study was the development of a literature review-based treatment algorithm for prepatellar and olecranon bursitis. METHODS: Following a systematic review of Pubmed, the Cochrane Library, textbooks of emergency medicine and surgery, and a manual reference search, 52 relevant papers were identified...

BACKGROUND: Although traumatic lacerations of the olecranon (OB) and praepatellar bursae (PB) are common entities often associated with complications, no study could be found on this injury. The aim of this study was to survey the current treatment concepts for acute traumatic laceration of the OB and PB in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An international online survey was conducted among orthopaedic and trauma surgeons in Germany (TraumaNetwork DGU), Austria (Austrian Society of Trauma (ÖGU) and Orthopaedic (ÖGO) Surgeons) and Switzerland (Swiss Orthopaedic Surgeons and Swiss Society of Infectious Disease (CH)) (n=1967)...

Soft-tissue reconstruction in the knee area needs thin, pliable, and tough skin. The availability of local soft tissue, which would meet the requirements best, is limited. This study is a retrospective analysis of our clinical experience with the superior lateral genicular artery (SLGA) flap for soft-tissue reconstruction around the knee, and a review of the relevant literature. Between 2000 and 2002, 6 SLGA flaps were elevated for reconstruction of defects around the knee in our institution. Indications for the SLGA flap were chronic ulcers after bursectomy of the prepatellar bursa, a pressure ulcer over the patella, and a defect after resection of a malignant fibrous histiocytoma on the anterolateral aspect of the distal thigh...

Operative treatment of prepatellar bursitis is indicated in intractable bursitis. The most common complication of surgical treatment for prepatellar bursitis is skin problems. For traumatic prepatellar bursitis, we propose a protocol of outpatient endoscopic surgery under local anaesthesia. From September 1996 to February 2001, 60 cases of failed nonoperative treatment for prepatellar bursitis were included. The average age was 33.5 ± 11.1 years (range 21-55). The average operation duration was 18 minutes...

Patients with prepatellar septic bursitis are typically successfully managed nonoperatively with rest, compression, immobilization, aspiration, and antibiotics. Rarely, surgical excision of the bursa may be required for recalcitrant cases. Prepatellar bursectomy, however, has been associated with considerable risk of surgical-site morbidity. Although skin necrosis is frequently cited as a complication of open bursectomy, there is limited information in the medical literature on the etiology and management of this rare but serious complication...

One hundred and twenty-five patients with acute and chronic ulnar and prepatellar bursitis were treated. Treatment policy was developed. If the first puncture of bursa's cavity without injection of obliterating drugs is not effective, drainage of bursa with perforated catheter is recommended. This policy permitted to reduce period of treatment and avoid bursectomy.

We treated 31 cases of olecranon bursitis and 19 cases of prepatellar bursitis. The average duration of symptoms before surgery was 1.1 years with a range of 3 months to 4 years. All patients had had preoperative aspiration and injection of cortisone. Patients underwent an arthroscopic bursal resection, removing all the bursal sack that could be seen. The results indicated that 86% of patients after olecranon bursectomy had no pain whatsoever. In the patients with prepatellar bursitis, 66% had no pain whatsoever, but we did note some residual tenderness in 24% of the patients, and 10% had pain on kneeling...

Prepatellar bursitis often results from sport-specific activities (e.g. wrestling, soccer, volleyball or ice hockey) or from work-related injuries (e.g. concrete finishing). In such cases, when conservative therapy is not successful, the bursa must be openly removed. Over a period of five years, our clinic conducted a total of 22 arthroscopic bursectomies. The following describes the endoscopic surgery, the postoperative clinical treatment and the results of the associated therapy. A follow-up examination of 22 patients were clinically revealed as successful operation...

Olecranon and prepatellar bursitis have a prevalence of 3 in 1000 patients; the predominant etiology is a traumatic lesion with or without inoculation of infectious material, mainly during professional or leisure activities. Separation into septic and non-septic bursitis is possible in most cases according to clinical parameters and characteristics of the contents of the affected bursa. The therapy of acute and chronic bursitis is guided mainly by the nature of the aspirate retrieved from the bursa: a serous content justifies conservative treatment with compression, immobilization, antiphlogistic medication, and (in selected cases) the instillation of corticosteroids; a purulent aspirate necessitates bursotomy with incision and drainage, or bursectomy...

Arthroscopic resection of prepatellar and olecranon bursae is a technically feasible operation. It is not more difficult than removing synovium from the suprapatellar pouch of the knee. Although there have been complications, this procedure appears to avoid the problems about the wound described with the open excisional operations for chronic olecranon and prepatellar bursitis.
