Mid-term outcomes of arthroscopic-assisted Core decompression of Precollapse osteonecrosis of femoral head —minimum of 5 year follow-up

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a progressive disease that leads to collapse and the development of secondary arthritis. The preferred management of ONFH remains controversial. Arthroscopic-assiste...

Patients with meniscal tear experience similar levels of reduced pain and improved physical function when treated with either arthroscopic partial meniscectomy or physical therapy, according to a recent study. The study also found these improvements were long term—lasting through the five-year follow up...

AbstractPurposePainful and slow recovery are the presumed disadvantages after opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) and play a role in favouring arthroplasty as treatment for moderate isolated medial knee arthritis. The primary study objective was to investigate the effect of press-fit structural impacted bone allograft with locking plate fixation on early ambulation, postoperative pain levels, and resumption of daily-life activities in opening-wedge HTO.MethodsA prospective consecutive opening-wedge HTO case series was conducted, including 103 patients with final follow-up at 1  year. Weight-bearing was allowed f...

Authors: Catalano LW, Ryan DJ, Barron OA, Glickel SZ Abstract Scaphotrapeziotrapezoid (STT) arthritis occurs commonly with basal joint arthritis, but can also occur in isolation or in conjunction with other patterns of wrist arthritis, such as scapholunate advanced collapse. Surgical options depend on the specific clinical scenario encountered. Isolated STT arthritis was classically managed with arthrodesis, but is now often addressed with distal scaphoid resection (open or arthroscopic), trapeziectomy (partial or complete) and partial trapezoid resection, or implant arthroplasty. Development of postoperative dorsa...

Lateral patellofemoral (PF) soft tissue abnormalities range from excessive lateral PF tightness (lateral patellar compression syndrome, lateral patellar instability and arthritis), to excessive laxity (iatrogenic lateral PF soft tissue insufficiency postlateral release). The lateral soft tissue complex is composed of the iliotibial band extension to the patella, the vastus lateralis tendon, the lateral PF ligament, lateral patellotibial ligament, and lateral patellomeniscal ligament, with intimate connections between those structures. To identify lateral retinaculum tightness or insufficiency the most important tests are t...

Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Joseph N. Liu, Troy G. Shields, Anirudh K. Gowd, Nirav H. AminAbstractBone marrow lesions (BMLs) in the knee represent focal edema caused by subchondral bone attrition and microfractures to the trabecular bone. These lesions are poor prognostic indicators for several orthopaedic procedures but also have been associated with the progression of osteoarthritis. Current research is aimed at treating BMLs with the intent to improve the overall structural integrity of the subchondral bone and delay the need for arthroplasty. The injection ...

Conclusions: Femoroacetabular impingement caused by acetabular retroversion treated with hip arthroscopy demonstrates good outcomes at 2 years with a low complication rate. Symptomatic adolescents may be safely and successfully treated arthroscopically, potentially avoiding anteverting PAO. Study Design: Level of evidence 4—case series.

We report the first case of Clostridium paraputrificum native shoulder septic arthritis and osteomyelitis. An 86-year-old woman with osteoarthritis presented with acute-onset right shoulder pain. Injection of the glenohumeral joint with methylprednisolone resulted in worsening of pain. Synovial fluid analysis was consistent with septic arthritis and culture of the synovial fluid grew C. paraputrificum. Arthroscopic irrigation and debridement of shoulder joint with 6 weeks of ertapenem was unsuccessful, with persistence of C. paraputrificum from synovial fluid and tissue culture. She underwent right shoulder resection follo...

AyeniAbstractThis is a technique guide for open anterior capsule reconstruction in unstable native hips due to Ehlers–Danlos syndrome. Ehlers–Danlos syndrome is a connective tissue disease that predisposes an individual to hypermobility of their soft tissues and recurrent subluxations and dislocations of their joints. This may lead to constant instability, guarding of the hip, and subsequent arthritic changes and poor quality of life. We demonstrate anterior caps...
