Diffuse sclerosing osteomyelitis: A case series and literature review

ConclusionOral bisphosphonates appear to provide prolonged symptom relief in patients with DSO compared to previous treatment strategies, however the exact regime and length of use is still unknown. The positive impact of bisphosphonates may provide a potential insight into the pathophysiology of DSO.

Authors: Traven SA, Synovec JD, Walton ZJ, Leddy LR, Suleiman LI, Gross CE Abstract INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study is to investigate the current disparities for major lower extremity amputation in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) and infection. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program's database for the years 2011 to 2017 was conducted. Multivariate models were used to isolate the effect of race and ethnicity on the likelihood of a below-knee or above-knee amputation (BKA and AKA, respectively) for CLI secondary to type 2 diabetes mellitus, athero...

Polzer H Abstract OBJECTIVE: Arthroscopic tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis (TTCA) aims at reconstructing a pain-free, orthograde, and functional limb with reduced invasiveness and lower complication rates compared to open arthrodesis. INDICATIONS: Combined osteoarthritis of the ankle and subtalar joint or hindfoot malalignment. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Osteomyelitis/deep soft tissue infections, talus necrosis, severe deformity of hindfoot or distal tibia, pronounced boney defect, indication for combined total ankle replacement and subtalar fusion. SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: Patient in supine position; arthros...

ConclusionsWithin our small case series, we demonstrated a high union rate without many of the complications associated with other arthrodesis techniques. We present a rapid, reliable and cost-effective method of DIPJ arthrodesis using a novel new technique with high rates of patient satisfaction.Level of evidence: Level 4, therapeutic study
