Classification of the transverse pattern of Mason II radial head fractures and its usefulness in arthroscopic osteosynthesis. Anatomo-surgical study

ConclusionsDepending on the location of the fracture in the head of the radius with respect to the bicipital tuberosity, we will need access through a specific arthroscopic portal, with the medial quadrants (anteromedial and posteromedial) being the most technically demanding.ResumenObjetivoLa reducción y fijación de la fractura de la cabeza del radio tipo Mason II asistida por artroscopia es una técnica válida que proporciona buenos resultados. El objetivo de este estudio es llamar la atención sobre la utilidad de la localización de la fractura en la cabeza del radio en cuadrantes definidos con respecto a la tuberosidad bicipital mediante la TC. Ello ayudaría a planificar la posición del antebrazo óptima para acceder a cada cuadrante y prever las dificultades específicas de cada uno.Material y métodoSe ha procedido a la disección de 4 especímenes de cadáver criopreservado. Hemos dividido la cabeza del radio en 4 cuadrantes con respecto a la tuberosidad bicipital objetivando el cambio de posición en pronación y en supinación máxima con respecto a la cavidad sigmoidea menor y a las estructuras neurovasculares.ResultadosLa cabeza del radio se desplaza con la pronosupinación, por lo que existen áreas de convergencia entre los distintos cuadrantes. El cuadrante 1 se aborda en supinación por un portal anteromedial. El cuadrante 2 se abo...

CONCLUSIONS: It took patients an average of 14 months to recover their daily motion after surgery. Tear size and retear affected only the recovery period of high-level motion activities and sports/leisure. This study was believed to serve as a guideline to inform patients about functional recovery after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III, therapeutic study.

Smith &Nephew (NYSE:SNN) said today that it completed its $50 million acquisition of Ceterix Orthopaedics and its NovoStitch Pro meniscal repair system. The deal could bring in an additional $55 million, according to Smith &Nephew, based on financial performance. The NovoStitch Pro device enables surgeons to repair arthroscopically horizontal, radial, complex, bucket handle and root tears, as well as vertical tears. Smith &Nephew noted that the device complements its own Fast-Fix 360 meniscal repair system, which is designed for vertical tears. “NovoStitch Pro is an outstanding technology that addres...

LaPradeAbstractFibular collateral ligament (FCL) injuries can present as lateral-sided knee pain with feelings of side-to-side instability during activity. Patients with FCL injuries can have accompanying symptoms related to irritation of the common peroneal nerve. Preoperative diagnosis is imperative and should include a thorough physical examination complemented with varus stress radiographs before surgical reconstruction is...

ConclusionAddition of clonidine to ropivacaine in USG guided adductor canal block led to significant prolongation of pain free period though pain score at rest and movement and rescue analgesic requirement did not differ.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosO alívio inadequado da dor após a reconstrução do ligamento cruzado anterior afeta a mobilidade, levando ao desenvolvimento de aderências, fraca Inserção do ligamento e atrofia muscular. O bloqueio do canal adutor para analgesia pós-operatória preserva a força do quadríceps. O presente estudo foi real...

Introduction: Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is useful for pain relief for chronic pain. However, it is still unclear if tDCS is useful for acute pain including postoperative pain. So, the purpose of this study was to reveal if tDCS relieve postoperative pain in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR).

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to retrospectively compile normative data on the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the paediatric population with magnetic resonance imaging, emphasizing the differences between men and women.MethodsIn this retrospective study, musculoskeletal radiologists evaluated length, area, coronal and sagittal inclination of the ACL and inclination of the intercondylar notch. A total of 253 MR examinations (130 males and 123 females between 6 and 18  years of age) were included. The association between measurements, sex and age was considered. Linear and fractional polynomial regressio...

Successful treatment of PLC injuries requires an understanding of the complex anatomy and biomechanics of the PLC. Several open PLC reconstruction techniques have been published. It is understood that anatomic reconstruction is superior to extra-anatomic techniques, leading to better clinical results. An open,...

The objective of this Technical Note is to describe our preferred technique for the primary treatment of AC joint instability in the acute and chronic setting. Using 2 free tendon grafts in combination with a cortical button suspensory device combines the advantages of a nonrigid biologic and anatomic AC and coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction while benefiting from the strength of a cortical suspensory device in resisting displacement of the AC joint.
