A case of bilateral revision total knee arthroplasty using distal femoral allograft –prosthesis composite and femoral head allografting at the tibial site with a varus-valgus constrained prosthesis: ten-year follow up

We report the successful use of allograft –prosthesis composite (APC) and structural femoral head allografting in the bilateral reconstruction of large femoral and tibial uncontained defects during revision tot...

However, several drawbacks, such as immunologic rejection, insufficient tissue healing, or secondary damage to the donor site, are still concerns. These limitations of the current bone grafts can be overcome by use of a natural ECM that can influence basic cellular behaviors, such as proliferation, migration, a...

Publication date: Available online 24 January 2020Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Jeong Woo Kim, Dae Jin NamAbstractThe treatment of massive and irreparable rotator cuff tears remains a challenge for shoulder surgeons. When treating patients with chronic rotator cuff tears, especially those with severe fatty degeneration, severe tendon retraction, or muscle atrophy, the risk of re-tear and persistent severe pain persists. Therefore, surgeons can choose from numerous options. Superior capsular reconstruction (SCR) was introduced as a technique to maintain the stability of the upper shoulder and stabilize the muscle...

Prosthetic arthroplasty is a solution in elderly patients. Both therapeutic options are contraindicated in the case of an infection. The article reports bone autografting and Hoffmann humero-humeral and temporary humero-ulnar Hoffmann external fixation. In our series of seven cases, there was only one minor complication, a benign pin-site inf...

CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of PIGCH remains clinically challenging and requires a high index of suspicion as well as a thorough history, physical examination, serological workup and liver biopsy. Treatment of the underlying cause can result in clinical stability in a large number of cases. PMID: 31966907 [PubMed]

DiscussionAn in situ repair by a combination of the nice knot with an anchor or a transosseous nice knot configuration can theoretically be used as a repair technique for an acromioclavicular dislocation. In comparison with existing techniques, this model shows favorable results for translation.Level of evidenceIII, controlled laboratory study.

Parvovirus B19 (PVB19) is a single-stranded DNA virus that infects erythroid progenitor cells, classically causing a pure red cell aplasia, but sometimes causing fulminant pancytopenia. PVB19 has been implicated in solid organ allograft failure, but no such literature exists for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). PVB19 may be an underappreciated complication in allo-HSCT.
