Complete Circumferential Osseous Extension in the Acetabular Rim Occurs Regardless of Acetabular Coverage.

CONCLUSIONS: Complete circumferential osseous extension in the acetabular rim is relatively uncommon. When it occurs, it usually is bilateral, it occurs regardless of acetabular coverage, and it is associated with pain in a minority of patients. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III, prognostic study.

Rationale: Kashin–Beck disease (KBD) is known for some typical characters like finger joint enlargement, shortened fingers, and dwarfism. However, Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the talus in KBD has rarely been reported in the literature. Here, we reported on a KBD patient presented with partial AVN of the talus in conjunction with ankle and subtalar arthritis. Patient concerns: A 50-year-old woman presented with severe pain and limited range of motion in her left ankle and subtalar joint while walking for 2 years. She had been walking with the aid of crutches for many years. Conservative treatment with rigid ortho...

Conclusions: Fracture energy positively correlates with Sanders classification for DIACFs, which can be used to identify more severe fractures at greater risk of progressing to PTOA. Level of Evidence: Prognostic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

Publication date: February 2018 Source:Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research, Volume 104, Issue 1, Supplement Author(s): C. Mazel, L. Ajavon Thoracolumbar malunion is the result of loss of correction, insufficient correction or even no correction (both in the frontal and sagittal planes) of a thoracolumbar fracture. The main causes are incorrect assessment of the fracture's complexity (burst fracture), its potential progression to kyphosis and associated disc or ligament damage. It can also be the result of a poorly conducted initial treatment. The types of malunion have changed over the years because of...

Patellofemoral instability in children requires surgery when recurrent dislocation occurs. The aim of this study is to report the 5-year clinical and radiographic outcomes following lateral wedge augmentation trochleoplasty of the femoral trochlea. This is a review of 23 (mean age: 12.5 years) patients who underwent surgery for recurrent patellar dislocations related to a flat trochlea. In every case, a lateral wedge augmentation trochleoplasty was performed with preservation of the growth plate. This surgery was consistently associated with a soft tissue procedure. All patients were reviewed for a clinical and radiographi...

Abstract BACKGROUND: When using the gap-balancing technique for TKA, excessive medial release and varus proximal tibial resection can be associated with internal rotation of the femoral component. Previous studies have evaluated the causes of femoral component rotational alignment with a separate factor analysis using unadjusted statistical methods, which might result in treatment effects being attributed to confounding variables. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What pre- and intraoperative factors are associated with internal rotation of the femoral component in TKA using the gap balancing technique? (2) To what deg...

Background: Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) occurs as a conflict between the proximal femur and the acetabular rim. The purpose of this study was to evaluate MRI findings and look for correlations with pain intensity and duration in each type of FAI separately in an attempt to identify which type is associated with more structural damage. Methods: Forty-four patients (78 hips) diagnosed with either cam or pincer FAI were consecutively recruited in a prospective cohort study. None of our patients had evidence of osteoarthritis (OA) on the initial plain radiography. All patients had contrast-enhanced MRI and CT scans of ...

Background: Dysplastic hip may present with acetabular retroversion with or without femoral retroversion. This retroversion, if not accounted for when performing a periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), will lead to anterior hip pain and early osteoarthritis. A reverse PAO involves anteverting the acetabulum while still obtaining lateral coverage. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between rotational malalignment of acetabulum and femur on 2-dimensional computed tomographic (CT) scans of hips that underwent Bernese PAO and its role in the surgical decision making. Methods: This retrospective, case-cont...

AbstractPurposeIn vitro studies have shown promising results for balloon-guided inflation tibioplasty. It was our hypothesis that this technique may be safe and effective for use in depressed lateral tibial plateau fracture.MethodsWe performed a prospective study of all patients suffering from a depressed lateral tibial plateau fracture, managed in our institution with inflation tibioplasty and a resorbable calcium phosphate bone substitute injection, between January 2012 and December 2013. Twenty patients, mean age 54.3  ± 12. 8 years, suffering from a depressed lateral tibial plateau fracture (S...

Spondylolysis, Spondylolisthesis, Spondylitis &Spondylosis These four conditions affect the lumbar spine and may be confusing. What is the difference between spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, spondylitis, and spondylosis? Spondylolysis (pars interarticularis Defect) - Used to describe the anatomic defect or break of the pars interarticularis of the vertebral arch. Spondylolysis usually occurs in the lower lumbar spine, especially the L5 vertebrae. It usually appears as a radiolucent gap on lateral X-ray. It occurs in about 5% of the population; it is not present at birth but develops over time and may run in fami...
