Abstract Achilles tendon rupture is an increasingly common problem with an aging population participating in high-level physical activities. Appropriate treatment has been debated for decades, but good outcomes have been reported after conservative and surgical management. The development of minimally invasive surgical techniques for Achilles repair has reduced the incidence of complications and maintained the high level of function reported after open surgery. The Achilles Midsubstance SpeedBridge repair is a newer minimally invasive technique that has demonstrated promising results and is the authors' preferred ...

Conclusion. Although intent-to-treat analysis failed to show significant differences in patients treated surgically, results of the as-treated analysis determined statically greater improvements in those patients with spondylolisthesis who were treated surgically as compared to those treated nonoperatively. Level of Evidence: 2

Conclusion. Ten years after its inception, SPORT has made strides in standardization and optimization of treatment for spinal pathologies. SPORT has provided clinicians with insight about outcomes of surgical and nonoperative treatment of spinal stenosis. Results showed significantly greater improvement through 4 year follow up in those patients that received surgical treatment, however the difference between the surgical and nonsurgical groups diminished at 8 year follow up. Level of Evidence: 3

Conclusion. In lumbar fusion, rhBMP-2 exhibited a higher fusion success rate and reduced the risk of re-operation. No difference in complication rate is between rhBMP (rhBMP-2 and rhBMP-7) and ICBG. We suggest rhBMP especially rhBMP-2 as an effective substitute for ICBG for lumbar fusion. Level of Evidence: 1

Purpose of review Refractive surgery is one of the most popular elective procedures performed in the world. Given that dry eye is a common complaint following keratorefractive surgery, evaluation, and treatment of periocular conditions that further predispose the patient to dry eye symptoms is an important part of the presurgical assessment. Periocular conditions and surgeries can also affect the ocular surface and keratometry, and should be addressed. For example, ptosis, orbital fat herniation, ectropion, and eyelid masses have been shown to induce corneal topography changes and astigmatism. The oculoplastic considerat...

Purpose of review Advanced keratectasia often requires corneal transplantation for restoration of vision. This review discusses the surgical approach suitable for these cases including significant updates in the current literature. Recent findings With greater understanding of ectatic corneal disease and its associated operative challenges, several modifications in the surgical approach have been developed. Identified predictive factors for successful pneumatic dissection and intraoperative complications have informed surgical planning and decision-making. In the setting of failed pneumatic dissection, sequential use ...

Purpose of review Keratoconus can be surgically challenging, especially in advanced cases. Classic corneal transplantation techniques, may often be associated with complications. New alternative procedures like isolated Bowman layer transplantation (as a corneal stromal inlay or as a corneal onlay) and corneal allogenic intrastromal ring segments (CAIRS) have recently shown promising results. The aim of this review is to describe the main new surgical developments for treating keratoconus. Recent findings Intrastromal Bowman layer transplantation has recently shown to be effective in halting keratoconus progression an...

Purpose of review The management of peripheral corneal diseases, including Mooren's ulcer, Terrien's marginal degeneration, peripheral ulcerative keratitis and pellucid marginal degeneration is challenging. Circular grafts must either be very large, resulting in the excision of healthy tissue, or eccentric, leading to high levels of astigmatism. This review summarizes the range of noncircular keratoplasty procedures available to surgeons, in addition to their indications, and surgical techniques. Recent findings Noncircular grafts have been demonstrated to be useful in the management of peripheral corneal diseases. Th...
