BACKGROUND: Total hip arthroplasty is an increasingly common procedure. The large number of cases inevitably includes patients who require filling of their acetabular defect even in their primary surgery. The use of a utogenous grafts and allografts as well as resistance rings requires patients to avoid loading the limb for a long time to enable implant integration. This disadvantage may be partially eliminated by using trabecular titanium implants. The aim of this paper is to present the outcomes of the use of trabecular titanium implants in primary hip arthroplasty...

A female patient with a critical soft tissue defect after elective knee replacement surgery was transferred to our department for reconstruction. As wounds were rapidly progressing, necrotizing fasciitis was initially suspected but eventually ruled out by histopathological analysis. A 50 × 15 cm defect was then reconstructed by means of a combined Parascapular and latissimus dorsi flap before, a couple days later, the patient developed tender pustules and ulcers involving the flap as well as the donor site...

BACKGROUND: Model based analysis of human upper limb movements has key importance in understanding the motor control processes of our nervous system. Various simulation software packages have been developed over the years to perform model based analysis. These packages provide computationally intensive-and therefore off-line-solutions to calculate the anatomical joint angles from motion captured raw measurement data (also referred as inverse kinematics). In addition, recent developments in inertial motion sensing technology show that it may replace large, immobile and expensive optical systems with small, mobile and cheaper solutions in cases when a laboratory-free measurement setup is needed...

The diagnosis of pathological fracture should be considered routinely in patients with long limb-bone fractures. Investigations must be performed to establish the diagnosis of pathological fracture then to determine that the bone lesion is a metastasis. In over 85% of cases, the clinical evaluation combined with a detailed analysis of the radiographs is sufficient to determine that the fracture occurred at a tumour site. Aetiological investigations establish that the tumour is a metastasis. In some patients, the diagnosis of metastatic cancer antedates the fracture...

Munjed Al Muderis, William Lu, Jiao Jiao Li
BACKGROUND: Osseointegration has emerged over the past two decades as a dramatically different approach for the treatment of lower limb amputations, which involves direct attachment of the prosthesis to the skeletal residuum. This approach can address many of the socket-interface issues associated with socket prostheses which represent the current standard of care for amputees. The Osseointegrated Prosthetic Limb (OPL) is an osseointegration implant with a new design and improved features compared to other available implant systems...

BACKGROUND: In the patients with longer-segment aortic arch hypoplasia or interruption with ventricular septal defect, surgery with homograft vessel or autologous pericardial patch to augment descending aortic arch will not result in adverse reactions caused by end-to-end anastomosis. In this study, we retrospectively analyzed primary experience of surgical correction of complicated aortic arch anomaly with autologous main pulmonary artery. METHODS: From July 2010 to March 2016, the twenty-one cases of aortic arch complex anomalies were reconstructed with autologous main pulmonary artery...

Popliteal artery pseudoaneurysm is uncommon. They usually result from penetrating or blunt trauma, arterial reconstructive surgery, invasive diagnostic or surgical orthopedic procedures. They can cause arterial thrombosis and limb ischeamia. We report a 53 year old Chinese gentleman with popliteal artery pseudoaneurysm who presented with right lower limb numbness and paralysis in toes extension. He gave a history of acupuncture treatment around the popliteal fossa of the affected limb. Clinical examination revealed a pulsatile mass in the popliteal fossa...

REVIEW
P Bonnevialle
Early infection after open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of a limb bone is defined as bacteriologically documented, deep and/or superficial surgical-site infection (SSI) diagnosed within 6months after the surgical procedure. This interval is arbitrarily considered sufficient to obtain fracture healing. The treatment of early infection after ORIF should be decided by a multidisciplinary team. The principles are the same as for revision arthroplasty. Superficial SSIs should be differentiated from deep SSIs, based on the results of bacteriological specimens collected using flawless technique...

BACKGROUND: DTI-based tractography is an increasingly important tool for planning brain surgery in patients suffering from brain tumours. However, there is an ongoing debate which tracking approaches yield the most valid results. Especially the use of functional localizer data such as navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) seem to improve fibre tracking data in conditions where anatomical landmarks are less informative due to tumour-induced distortions of the gyral anatomy...

The number of patients undergoing revision surgery following failure of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has increased over the recent past, following the overall increased number of primary ACL reconstruction performed. Failure of primary ACL reconstruction can be attributed to technical errors, biological failures, or new traumatic injuries. Technical errors include femoral and/or tibial tunnels malposition, untreated associated ligaments insufficiencies, uncorrected lower limb malalignment, and graft fixation failures...

Objective: To explore the effect of ilioinguinal flap on reconstruction of perineal obliteration deformity after extensive deep burn. Methods: Five patients with perineal obliteration deformity after extensive deep burn were hospitalized from January 2010 to June 2015, with total burn area ranging from 35% to 55% total body surface area, depth of full-thickness burn and wound deep to bone, and course of scar from 6 months to 3 years. Scars of patients were involved in bilateral groins, inner thighs, monsveneris, sacrococcygeal region, and central area of perineum...

Since a few years, the transoral robotic surgery reduced the morbidity of oropharyngeal tumors excision. Large posterior tumors can now be removed without any scar visible on the face. In this context and to respect the thinness required for reconstructions at the junction of the upper aerodigestive tract, the free radial forearm flap still remains the solution of choice. However, if the transoral robotic surgery respects the anatomy and the aesthetics of patients at the visible and social area that represents the face, the forearm flap provides visible scars on the other region of social interaction that represents the upper limb...

BACKGROUND: Adipose-derived mesenchymalstromal cells (ASC) are currently tested in regenerative medicine to promote tissue reconstruction after injury. Regardingautologous purpose, the possible loss of therapeutic function and cell properties during aging have been questioned in adults. To date no reliable information is available concerning ASC from pediatric patients and a better knowledge is required for clinical applications. METHODS: Subcutaneous adipose tissue was collected from 27 donors (0-1 years old) and 50 donors (1-12 years old) and compared with adult ASC for in vitro characteristics...

INTRODUCTION: Latest advances made in joint replacement implants allows reconstruction of entire limbs. These special prostheses or megaprostheses were originally designed for the treatment of severe oncological bone loss. Nowadays, however, the indications and applications of these devices are expanding to other orthopaedic and trauma clinical conditions. Since 2008 we have implanted 152 megaprostheses in non-oncological conditions: 87 were implanted for post-traumatic failures aseptic/septic (represented by complex non-unions and critical size bone defects); 26 total femur, 52 distal femur and 9 proximal tibia...

BACKGROUND: Static standing balance can be safely assessed early following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), and deficits may have important implications for long-term outcomes. This study includes a large cohort of people post-ACLR and has the primary aim of establishing whether inter-limb and sex differences exist, with a secondary aim of assessing the association between static balance variables and other outcome measures. METHODS: A total of 414 patients with a primary ACLR performed a 30-s static single leg balance test...

Charcot's neuroarthropathy can have devastating consequences if left untreated or misdiagnosed. With progression of the disease from the acute to the chronic phase, substantial deformity and instability may result, leading to ulceration and a nonfunctional limb. The purpose of this case report is to present a staged reconstruction for active Charcot's neuroarthropathy involving the subtalar joint with complete dislocation that resulted in limb salvage and maintenance of limb function at 1-year follow-up. Although for many patients the mainstay of treatment for early Charcot's neuroarthropathy is conservative care with off-loading, early surgical correction that includes external fixation followed by definitive arthrodesis for select patients may be warranted...
