The lateral femoral condyle (LFC) flap is a new flap first reported in 2015 for the treatment of osteomyelitis in hand surgery. This paper introduces a technique of osteochondral LFC flap harvest for mandibular condyle reconstruction and reports on the use of this flap in temporomandibular joint reconstruction. For condyle resection, a pre-auricular approach saving the temporal artery and vein is performed. A step osteotomy technique is used for condyle resection. LFC harvesting starts with dissection of the popliteal artery and vein.

Conclusions Flap reconstruction can be beneficial in the management of pediatric pressure ulcers. Although high rates of long-term success with this intervention have been reported in children, we found rates of ulcer recurrence similar to that seen in adults. Poor compliance with nonoperative care and failure to modify the biopsychosocial perpetuators of pressure ulcers will likely eventuate in postoperative recurrence. Despite the many comorbidities observed in our patient sample, compliance was the best indicator of long-term skin integrity and flap success.

Difficult to treat osteoarticulars infections : Focus on Mycobacterial and Fungal infection. Acta Orthop Belg. 2017 Mar;83(1):110-123 Authors: Yombi JC, Seyler L, Cornu O, Barbier O, Libouton X, Rodriguez-Villalobos H, Thienpont E Abstract Bone and joint infections are rare but often devastating. While bacteria are most commonly encountered organisms, mycobacteria and fungi are less frequent. Management of the latter is often more complex, especially in the presence of foreign material. We will increasingly be faced with mycobacterial and fungal bone infections, as medical conditions and newer the...

Authors: Hase R, Hirooka T, Itabashi T, Endo Y, Otsuka Y Abstract A 65-year-old man presented with gradually exacerbating low back pain. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed vertebral osteomyelitis in the Th11-L2 vertebral bodies and discs. The patient showed negative findings on conventional cultures. Direct broad-range polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with sequencing of the biopsied specimen had the highest similarity to the 16S rRNA gene of Helicobacter cinaedi. This case suggests that direct broad-range PCR with sequencing should be considered when conventional cultures cannot identify the causative organism of v...

Authors: Vanderhave KL, Perkins CA, Scannell B, Brighton BK Abstract Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an autosomal recessive disorder that results in hemolytic anemia related to abnormal hemoglobin and erythrocyte levels. SCD is characterized by vascular occlusive episodes, visceral sequestration, and aplastic or hemolytic crises. These crises most commonly occur in bone. The orthopaedic manifestations of SCD comprise much of the morbidity associated with this disorder. Osteonecrosis and osteomyelitis are among the most disabling and serious musculoskeletal complications in patients with SCD. Effective management of th...

Conclusions -Our findings show that from 2006 to 2015, the overall survival increased and the risk of major lower limb amputation decreased following revascularisation. These observations suggest that patient outcomes after lower limb revascularisation have improved during a period of centralisation and specialisation of vascular services in the United Kingdom.
