Management of Biceps Tendon Pathology: From the Glenoid to the Radial Tuberosity.

Management of Biceps Tendon Pathology: From the Glenoid to the Radial Tuberosity. Instr Course Lect. 2018 Feb 15;67:439-452 Authors: Frank RM, Cotter EJ, Strauss EJ, Jazrawi LM, Romeo AA Abstract Management of proximal and distal biceps tendon pathology is evolving. The long head of the biceps tendon, if inflamed, may be a pain-producing structure. In appropriately indicated patients, a symptomatic long head of the biceps tendon can be surgically managed via tenotomy, tenodesis, and/or superior labrum anterior to posterior repair. In some patients, primary superior labrum anterior to posterior pathology can be managed via biceps tenodesis. Determining which procedure is most appropriate for and which technique and implant are preferred in a given patient with biceps tendon pathology is controversial. Less debate exists with regard to the timing of distal biceps tendon repair; however, considerable controversy exists with regard to selection of an appropriate surgical technique and implant. In addition, the treatment of patients with a chronic and/or retracted distal biceps tendon tear and patients in whom distal biceps tendon repair fails is extremely challenging. Orthopaedic surgeons should understand the anatomy of, nonsurgical and surgical treatment options for, and outcomes of patients with proximal or distal biceps tendon pathology.

This study aimed to assess the potential efficacy of purified porcine atelocollagen (PAC) for the management of refractory chronic pain due to suspected connective tissue damage. Methods: Patients treated with PAC were retrospectively evaluated. Patients with chronic refractory pain, suspected to have originated from musculoskeletal damage or defects with the evidence of imaging studies were included. Pain intensity, using the 11-point numerical rating scale (NRS), was assessed before the procedure, and 1 month after the last procedure. Results: Eighty-eight patients were finally included for investigation. The mea...

CONCLUSIONS: Hip abductor tendon tears were identified as a pertinent clinical problem in this survey. An improvement in the fundamental pathological understanding of disease and greater availability of proven biologics and tissue augments are required. PMID: 32777795 [PubMed - in process]

Knee dislocations leading to multiligament knee injuries are associated with a wide variety of bony, ligamentous, soft tissue, and neurovascular injury patterns. Numerous management strategies have been proposed including nonoperative treatment and surgical repair or reconstruction. In recent years, an emphasis has been placed on anatomic repair and reconstruction principles, which have shown superior outcomes compared with older techniques. However, despite these advances, clinical outcomes continue to vary widely, with many patients experiencing chronic pain, stiffness, loss of range of motion, instability, and failure t...

Authors: Lee Y, Bae BN Abstract Mesh erosion or migration is a rare and late complication after hernia repair. Its incidence is increasing as the utilization of prosthetic mesh gains popularity for abdominal hernia repair. However, mesh migration is exceedingly rare and its clinical presentation is atypical and diverse. Therefore the management of mesh migration should be individualized to each patient. This research reports the case of a 94-year-old man with transmural migration of Prolene mesh from the abdominal wall to the rectum 14 years after incisional hernia repair. He presented with only chronic abdominal p...

The healing power of ultraviolet light (UV) has flown under the radar for decades. Yet, it’s one of the most powerful detoxifying agents known to man. It kills bacteria and viruses and can be used in a clinical setting. The therapeutic benefits of light have been known for millennia. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, believed light was essential to balance the body and emotions. And there is good reason why, during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, medics discovered that severely ill patients had hugely better recovery rates when they were nursed outside and had regular exposure to sunlight.1 You see, UV r...

García MJ Abstract Inguinodynia or chronic postoperative inguinal pain is a growing problem between patients who undergo surgical repair of an inguinal hernia. The change in results measurement proposed by many authors towards Patient Reported Outcome Measurement has underlined the importance of chronic postoperative inguinal pain, because of the great limitations in everyday life and the huge socioeconomic impact that it causes. In this article a narrative review of the available literature in PUBMED, EMBASE and Cochrane Library is performed and the most relevant aspects about epidemiology, etiology preve...

In conclusion, our study demonstrated that Nrf2 deficiency promoted the increasing trend of autophagy during aging in skeletal muscle. Nrf2 deficiency and increasing age may cause excessive autophagy in skeletal muscle, which can be a potential mechanism for the development of sarcopenia.

CONCLUSIONS: Relative motion flexion splinting affords early active motion and hand use with excellent range of motion achieved following acute open boutonniere repair or closed boutonniere rupture with less morbidity than conventional management. Chronic boutonniere deformity will respond to relative motion flexion splinting if serial casting can place the proximal interphalangeal joint in less than -20° extension, and the patient actively uses the hand in a relative motion flexion orthosis for 3 months, recovering flexion. No further therapy was needed in our cases. We believe this management technique should be atte...
