Continuous Transversalis Fascia Plane Catheter Infusion in a Pediatric Patient Undergoing Alveolar Cleft Repair With Iliac Crest Bone Graft: A Case Report

In this report, we describe our experience using a continuous transversalis fascia plane infusion catheter in the management of a 6-year-old girl undergoing alveolar cleft repair with iliac crest bone graft.

Authors: Pickell M, Jejurikar N, Anil U, Salata M, Davidson PA, Jazrawi LM, Strauss EJ Abstract Meniscal tears are common injuries that may result in functionally limiting pain, swelling, and mechanical symptoms. The management of meniscal pathology has evolved as surgeons' understanding of the important role the menisci play in normal knee kinematics increases. Recent emphasis on partial meniscectomy, expanding indications for meniscal repair, and the increased use of meniscal allograft transplantation have helped improve the outcomes of patients with a meniscal tear who undergo treatment. Orthopaedic surgeons sho...

Authors: Mathieu L, Pfister G, Murison JC, Oberlin C, Belkheyar Z Abstract Missile injuries of the sciatic nerve are frequently encountered in modern violent conflicts. Gunshot and fragment wounds may cause large nerve defects, for which management is challenging. The great size of the sciatic nerve, in both diameter and length, explains the poor results of nerve repair using autografts or allografts. To address this issue, we used a simple technique consisting of a direct suture of the sciatic nerve combined with knee flexion for 6 weeks. Despite a published series showing that this procedure gives better results ...

ConclusionsPost-meniscectomy pain syndrome and post-meniscectomy knee OA are common findings after meniscus resection. Short-term pain relief is provided by non-surgical management, mid-term pain relief by meniscus scaffolds, and long-term relief by MAT, though each has differing indications. In later stages, osteotomies and joint replacements are indicated.Level of evidenceIV.

DISCUSSION: The use of ICBG in nonunion repair among elderly patients is as effective as use in younger patients with a long bone nonunion. Concerns of increased postoperative complications and decreased rate of union in elderly patients receiving ICBG for treatment of fracture nonunion should be alleviated. ICBG remains the benchmark graft for nonunion repair among all age groups. PMID: 30628999 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 13 December 2018Source: The Journal of Foot and Ankle SurgeryAuthor(s): Anthony Tickner, Seiha Thorng, Mary Martin, Valerie MarmolejoAbstractRupture of the tibialis anterior tendon is a rare condition reported to occur most often spontaneously in patients>45 years of age. Diagnosis is often delayed due to transient pain at the time of rupture and the ability of the long extensors to compensate for the lost action of the tibialis anterior. Treatment has been proposed to be based on the activity level of the individual; however, no consensus has been reached on the optimal treatment moda...

WongAbstractPosterior shoulder instability is an uncommon and challenging cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction. Surgical management has less reliable results and higher failure rates compared with techniques for anterior shoulder instability. The presence of generalized ligamentous laxity further complicates options for surgical management. If primary capsulolabral repair fails, controversy exists as to the optimal revision procedure.

Abstract Symptomatic rib nonunions are a rare complication after rib fractures. Methods used to address these nonunions range from pain management, rib resection, and rib fixation with plates and occasional autologous bone grafting. Given potential complications associated with rib resections such as pulmonary hernia, we hypothesized that plate fixation and autologous bone grafting would yield satisfactory long-term outcomes and a high union rate. Patients (aged ≥18 years) at a single institution with a symptomatic rib nonunion who underwent surgical rib stabilization of the nonunion coupled with bone autograft...
