Surgical technique in tension band wiring method for selected comminuted olecranon fractures
ConclusionsFor selected comminuted olecranon fractures, TBW with the eyelet pins and biodegradable pins could yield satisfactory clinical and radiographic outcomes.
ConclusionLWAT is a reliable procedure that provides sustained protection against patello-femoral dislocation and good functional scores when used to treat patello-femoral instability due to trochlear dysplasia. Our results do not support claims that LWAT may be associated with high rates of severe osteoarthritis even after more than 20 years.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective observational study with no control group.
To investigate the incidence and progression rate of radiographic hip osteoarthritis (OA) and its risk factors in Japanese men and women using a large-scale population of a nationwide cohort study, Research on Osteoarthritis/osteoporosis Against Disability (ROAD).
We examined the preoperative association between pain catastrophizing and physical function and pain, as well as the correlation between radiographic OA and physical symptoms and knee arthroplasty (KA).
Abstract STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional analysis. BACKGROUND: Hip joint loading in persons with hip osteoarthritis (OA) is not well-studied and its associations with symptoms and lesions are unknown. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether hip joint loading differs between subjects with and without radiographic hip OA and to identify its associations with patients' symptoms and cartilage morphology. METHODS: Forty-eight subjects (28 males, age 56.0 ± 12.2 years) with hip OA and 95 controls (40 males, age 43.2 ± 13.6 years) participated. Pelvic radiographs, questionnaires, magnetic resonance (M...
ConclusionBimeniscal replacement by an allograft and/or substitute provides good short-term functional and anatomical outcomes. Nevertheless, this procedure is warranted only in highly selected patients.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective study.
Open-Wedge HTO with Absorbable β-TCP/PLGA Spacer Implantation and Proximal Fibular Osteotomy for Medial Compartmental Knee Osteoarthritis: New Technique Presentation. J Invest Surg. 2019 Oct 06;:1-11 Authors: Zhang R, Li S, Yin Y, Guo J, Chen W, Hou Z, Zhang Y Abstract Purpose: The purpose of this study was to present a new absorbable spacer for medial compartmental knee osteoarthritis (OA). The functional and radiographic results of patients treated with the novel surgical technique were also evaluated to investigate its clinical feasibility. Methods: Patients with medial compartmental knee OA wh...
DiscussionMisalignment was more frequent when THA was achieved for an acute proximal femur fracture. Several explanations can be proposed: lesser bone quality, incomplete removal of upper acetabular osteophytes which can lead to excessive horizontalization of the cup and surgical procedure performed by younger surgeons in “fracture group”. These misalignments don’t cause more mechanical complications in the first months after surgery.
To design an automated workflow for hip radiographs focused on joint shape and tests its prognostic value for future hip osteoarthritis.
AbstractPurposeTo compare the clinical and laboratory outcomes of intra-articular injections of culture-expanded bone-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to intra-articular corticosteroid injections for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA).MethodsForty-seven patients with radiographic and symptomatic knee OA were randomized into three groups for intra-articular injections: autologous bone marrow-derived culture-expanded MSCs (n = 16); autologous bone marrow-derived culture-expanded MSCs + PRP (n = 14); and corticosteroid (n =...
CONCLUSION: In this study, 20.5% of hips classified as ARCO stage I or II on simple radiography were found to be ARCO stage III on CT imaging. When a joint-preserving treatment is considered for early stage ONFH, CT examination is necessary for more precise staging of the disease. PMID: 31571188 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
