Osteoid osteoma of the base of the coracoid process, a case report

ConclusionA long history of shoulder pain that is not responsive to conservative management in young patients should raise the suspicion of an "OO", and physicians should be encouraged to use early advanced imaging modalities in order to confirm it.

ConclusionsUnplanned admissions are more frequently related to general anaesthesia, lengthy surgeries and procedures such as arthroscopy, hallux valgus corrections or removal of osteosynthesis material. The major reasons for unplanned admissions were inadequate postoperative pain management for overnight admissions and wound infection for admissions after discharge.ResumenObjetivoLos procedimientos de Cirugía Ortopédica y Traumatología (COT) realizados en Unidades de Cirugía Mayor Ambulatoria (CMA) ofrecen importantes ventajas que desaparecen cuando la recuperación postoperatoria no es la...

Total joint replacement (TJR) is the recommended treatment for end stage temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease. The goal of treatment is to help return to acceptable function with improvement of maximum incisal opening (MIO) and reduction of pain. When a prosthetic joint shows late complications, the surgical management is open with debridement, cultures and prosthetic replacement as options. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the early outcomes of arthroscopic management of failing prosthetic temporomandibular joints (PTMJ).

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...

ConclusionThe findings suggest that patients undergoing shoulder surgery have high overall preoperative expectations, which were significantly associated with ethnicity, surgical history, opioid use, and employment status, and with multiple patient-reported outcome measures including physical function, pain interference, fatigue, and depression. Nevertheless, by discussing expectations preoperatively, orthopaedic surgeons can help patients develop high but realistic expectations to improve outcomes and satisfaction.Level of evidenceIV.

Abstract Factors motivating patients to undergo rotator cuff repair (RCR) have not been thoroughly investigated. The purpose of this study was to investigate patient and surgeon decision-making factors for RCR, as well as the use of conservative treatment, and their relationship with shoulder function. A total of 144 adult patients undergoing arthroscopic RCR completed a 13-item questionnaire assessing the importance of surgical decision-making factors. Preoperative conservative treatments were also recorded. Surgeons also completed a similar 5-item questionnaire assessing surgeon decision-making factors preoperat...

Authors: Rosinsky PJ, Shapira J, Lall AC, Domb BG Abstract Intriguing anatomists and surgeons for centuries, the exact function and biomechanical significance of the ligamentum teres (LT) remains incompletely understood. The LT, also described as the ligamentum femoris capitis, is an intra-articular extrasynovial ligament extending from the cotyloid fossa of the acetabulum to the fovea on the femoral head. Some studies have described it as a vestigial structure in the adult hip. More recent biomechanical studies, however, along with histological and anatomical studies, have suggested the LT to have an important fun...

CONCLUSION: Synovial chondromatosis is a rare benign pathology, even rarer in the ankle joint and especially in the foot. Surgery should be minimal in patients with ankle PSC, choosing the correct timing, waiting if possible until stage III. More aggressive and early surgery should be performed in patients with PSC of the foot, particularly the subtalar joint, due to the high risk of arthritic evolution. PMID: 31840021 [PubMed]

ConclusionPain improved considerably in both groups over 60 months. While ITT analysis revealed no statistically significant differences following TKR, greater frequency of TKR in those undergoing arthroscopic partial meniscectomy merits further study.
