A mass guide for the harvest of cortico-cancellous bone from the posterior iliac crest for mandibular reconstruction

This study sought to find the mass of particulate cortico-cancellous bone graft required per 1  cm continuity defect of the mandible. Harvested bone was weighed, milled and maximally compressed in a syringe. The defect length (DL) was measured in centimetres, and the compressed bone volume (CBV) used was recorded. The wet bone mass (WBM) of bone required per centimetre of mandibular defect, and the mass of bone yielding 1cc of compressed bone was calculated. Results were analysed statistically to determine if clinically meaningful differences exist between male and female iliac crest.

The Latarjet and iliac-crest bone graft transfer (ICBGT) procedure are competing treatment options for anterior shoulder instability with glenoid bone loss. Despite the fact that several clinical, radiological, and biomechanical studies have shown both the advantages and disadvantages for either technique no prospective randomized clincial outcome trials are currently available. Goal of this study was to compare the clincial and radiological outcome of the Latarjet and the ICBGT procedure by means of a prospective randomized trial.

Reasonable outcomes has been reported with indirect open lower trapezius transfer extended with an Achilles tendon allograft to reconstruct irreparable posterior-superior rotator cuff tears. Techniques have been developed to perform this procedure arthroscopically. However, the outcome of arthroscopically assisted lower trapezius transfer is largely unknown. The purpose of this study is to report the outcome of arthroscopically assisted lower trapezius transfer to reconstruct irreparable posterior-superior rotator cuff tear.

AbstractRadicular cysts are the most common odontogenic cystic lesions that occur in jaws. They rarely become problematic and are incidentally found on routine dental radiographs. As they appear to reach a considerable size prior to medical attention due to their insidious and destructive growth characteristics during the intraosseous stage, treatment often requires extensive cystectomy and skeletal reconstruction. Here we present the case of an 18-year-old man who was sent to our department, because of a huge, bulging mass in his left cheek. Surgery consisted of complete removal of the cyst and immediate reconstruction of...

DiscussionIn years 2011 and 2012 when the surgeries captured in this retrospective study were done, rhBMP-2 was indicated for single level (L4–S1) anterior lumbar spine fusion as a substitute for autogenous bone graft in adults with DDD. The most common procedure for the treatment with rhBMP-2 was PLF (off-label use), followed by ALIF (on-label use). The safety findings confirm a predictable and manageable safety profile.Level of evidenceIV.

Authors: Schloßhauer T, Priepke E, Rehart S, Kuehn S, Jahn-Muehl B, Rieger UM Abstract Tuberculosis is a central global health problem with an incidence of 10 million new cases per year and more than one million deaths per year. Contrary to this, osseous tuberculosis represents an extremely rare entity of tuberculosis. Osseous tuberculosis is challenging beginning with the correct diagnosis, adequate surgical as well infectiological treatment as well as extremity reconstruction. Facing increased migration and therefore increasing numbers of cases of tuberculosis in western countries, the question of a reliabl...

ConclusionsProlonged use of cyclosporine may expose to several dose-related adverse events and may contribute to the development of allograft dysfunction but it does not necessarily cause relentless, progressive transplant failure if patients are carefully and consistently monitored during the follow-up.

ConclusionsRates of ODD utilization in lung transplantation have increased in accordance with the opioid epidemic, but there remains a significant pool of ODD pulmonary allografts with favorable characteristics that are discarded. With no significant difference in survival between ODD and non-ODD recipients, further expansion of this donor pool may be appropriate and pulmonary allografts should not be discarded based solely on ODD status.

A major obstacle in kidney transplantation for primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is the risk of disease recurrence. Recurrent FSGS affects up to 60% of first kidney grafts and exceeds 80% in patients who have lost their first graft due to recurrent FSGS. Clinical and experimental evidence support the hypothesis that a circulating permeability factor is the mediator in the pathogenesis of primary and recurrent disease. Despite all efforts, the causing agent has not yet been identified. Several treatment options for the management of recurrent FSGS have been proposed. In addition to plasma exchange, B-cell de...

We describe here significant studies that have highlighted potential candidates for reliable and noninvasive biomarkers of CLAD in the fields of imaging and functional monitoring, humoral immunity, cell-mediated immunity, allograft injury, airway remodeling and gene expression. Such biomarkers would improve CLAD prediction and allow differential LT management regarding CLAD risk.
