Discussion and conclusionThe 83% primary fusion rate is in the low average of the literature and 92% fusion rate in the high average after reoperation. All patients were improved even in two non-unions. The results of this study confirm that the arthrodesis after TAA failure is a reliable alternative to the TAA replacement. However, they are lower than those after a first-line arthrodesis.

Abstract Background: Few studies have investigated the outcomes of surgical fracture care among socially deprived patients despite the increased incidence of fractures and the inequality of care received in this group. We evaluated whether socioeconomic deprivation affected the complications and subsequent management of marginalized/homeless patients following surgery for ankle fracture. Methods: In this retrospective, population-based cohort study involving 202 hospitals in Ontario, Canada, we evaluated 45 444 patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) for ankle fracture performed by ...

Resection arthroplasty for metatarsalgia is a selective procedure primarily indicated for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. These patients present with significant forefoot deformities, poor bone quality, and loss of soft tissue integrity. Resection of the metatarsal heads and correction of lesser toe deformities improve pain and decrease transfer metatarsalgia. Patients with concurrent hallux valgus may benefit from a lapidus procedure or hallux metatarsophalangeal fusion in an effort to improve outcomes and decrease incidence of recurrent hallux valgus. In rare cases, diabetics with neuropathy may require resection art...

Publication date: Available online 11 September 2019Source: Journal of OrthopaedicsAuthor(s): Subrata Mondal, Rajesh GhoshAbstractThis paper briefly reviews the different methodology, technology, challenges, and outcomes of various studies related to TAR prosthesis based on numerical and experimental techniques. Very less in-vitro experimental studies on TAR have been found than finite element (FE) studies. Due to the invasive nature of the experimental approach, inadequacy and less clinical information, computational modelling has been widely used by the researchers. This paper critically examines the part related to FE m...

Abstract PURPOSE: Tibial bowing in valgus knees with arthritis can lead to component malplacement during total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Incidence of valgus knees with medial tibial bowing, its effect on tibial component placement during primary TKA and methods to improve accuracy of the component placement were studied. METHODS: Full-length weight-bearing alignment radiograph was taken in 117 patients (149 knees) with valgus deformity undergoing TKA. In these cases, the proximal tibial reference for extramedullary jig placement was planned preoperatively with reference to the tibial spines and classified as f...
