Better functional outcomes for ORIF in tibial eminence fracture treatment: a national comparative multicentric study of ORIF vs ARIF

ConclusionIn this retrospective multicentric study, better functional outcomes were observed in the ORIF group. This difference needs to be carefully interpreted as many confounding factors exist. In terms of complications, the results for both ORIF and ARIF are similar at midterm follow-up. ORIF should remain gold standard for tibial eminence fracture treatment.Level of evidenceIII.

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1700978To improve the long-term outcomes of high tibial osteotomy (HTO) for gonarthritis, many cartilage repair procedures appeared, but their effects were controversial. To evaluate the efficacy of cartilage repair procedures during HTO for gonarthritis, we performed this update meta-analysis. We performed the system retrieval for clinical trials using various databases and then pooled the outcomes of the included studies. Fifteen studies were involved. The pooled results indicated that there were no significant differences in Kellgren and Lawrence (KL) scale (mean difference [MD] =&...

DiscussionTo assess the long-term efficacy of APM on knee symptoms and function we are carrying out a long-term (5-year and 10-year) follow up of our placebo-surgery-controlled FIDELITY trial according to statistical principles outlined in detail in this document. As our second primary objective, whether APM (resection of torn meniscus tear) accelerates or delays the development of knee osteoarthritis in patients with an arthroscopically verified degenerative tear of the medial meniscus, a pre-registered follow-up is also carried out.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov,NCT00549172 (Arthroscopy in the Treatment of Degenera...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate the effect of proximal tibial tubercle osteotomy (PTO) and distal tibial tubercle osteotomy (DTO) in medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy on patellofemoral alignment, patellofemoral osteoarthritis and clinical outcomes.MethodsPTO (n = 41) and DTO (n = 43) for the same surgical indications were included. Radiographic measurements of the Caton-Deschamps index, patellar tilt and shift, and arthroscopic cartilage evaluation at the patellofemoral joint were performed at osteotomy and plate removal. The Knee Society Score (KSS) was evaluated pre operatively and at t...

ConclusionLarger differences in calculated correction angles between pre-operative radiographs standing with and without LWI predicted larger changes in JLCA after HTO. Whole-leg radiograph standing on LWI is a promising modality for correct pre-operative planning considering patient-specific changes in JLCA before vs. after HTO.Level of evidenceIV.

AbstractIntroductionThe aim of this study was to describe clinical and radiological long-term results of an arthroscopic partial meniscectomy associated with an outside-in decompressive needling of the cyst for lateral parameniscal cyst.MethodsEighteen patients with symptomatic parameniscal cysts treated between April 2002 and September 2009 were retrospectively included in the study. All patients underwent arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (preserving peripheral rim) and needling of the cyst using a 20-gauge needle. Pre- and post-operative IKDC, Tegner, and Lysholm scores were used to evaluate clinical results. Radiologic...

This study was conducted to determine the effect of pre-operative medial meniscus extrusion (MME) on arthroscopic surgery outcomes in the osteoarthritic knee associated with medial meniscus tear during a minimum 4-year follow-up. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of a total of 131 patients diagnosed with osteoarthritic knee associated with medial symptomatic degenerative meniscus tear who underwent arthroscopic surgery from January 2012 to December 2014 and were observed for more than 4 years. Patients were classified into two groups: MME ≥3 mm (major MME group, n = 54) and MME

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.

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 =...

Abstract Femoroacetabular impingement is a cause of hip pain in young adults as a result of premature dynamic contact between the femur and acetabulum that occurs within the physiological range of hip motion. Diagnosis is made by patient history, clinical examination and radiographic findings. Cross-sectional imaging with computed tomography and magnetic resonance arthrography may be necessary in selected patients. Femoroacetabular impingement can be treated non-operatively with physiotherapist-led conservative care including analgesia and intra-articular steroid injections. Arthroscopic hip surgery aiming to rest...
