InternalBrace ACL Repair - First Experiences and Outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS Anterior cruciate ligament suture with the InternalBrace ligament augmentation judging from the results achieved by our group of patients brings very good clinical outcomes already at 6 months postoperatively. This method allows the athletes to return to full load soon. It maintains the kinematics and knee joint proprioception, and thus can potentially contribute to the prevention of post-traumatic arthritis. Strict application of indication criteria is a precondition to success. A longer follow up and evaluation of a larger number of patients will, however, be necessary to definitely confirm the success of this surgical technique. Key words: arthroscopy, ACL rupture, ACL repair, InternalBrace, clinical evaluation. PMID: 31941570 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: These results identify clinical features of veterans and service members with mTBI(s) who are at highest risk for pain-related disability. These findings also demonstrate the need to consider mental health and sleep problems in their pain evaluation and treatment approach. PMID: 33007066 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The reported incidence of Lisfranc injuries is 9.2/100.000 person-years; two-thirds of the injuries are nondisplaced. Tarsometatarsal injuries range from minor sprains and isolated ligamentous injuries to grossly unstable and multiligamentous lesions. High-energy injuries are usually linked with mechanical energy dissipation through the soft tissues. Operative treatment options include open reduction and internal fixation, open reduction with hybrid internal and external fixation, closed reduction with percutaneous internal or external fixation, and primary arthrodesis. Treatment goals are to obtain a painless, plantigrade...

Tenascin-C (TNC) is a large multimodular glycoprotein of the extracellular matrix that consists of four distinct domains. Emerging evidence suggests that TNC may be involved in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In this review, we summarize the current understanding of the role of TNC in cartilage and in synovial biology, across both OA and RA. TNC is expressed in association with the development of articular cartilage; the expression decreases during maturation of chondrocytes and disappears almost completely in adult articular cartilage. TNC expression is increased in diseased cartilag...

Authors: ADVANCES IN MUSCULOSKELETAL DISEASES AND INFECTIONS - SOTIMI 2019:, Smeraglia F, Basso MA, Fonzone Caccese A, Bernasconi A, Mariconda M, Balato G Abstract The pseudoarthrosis (PSA) of scaphoid leads to alteration in load transfer in the wrist joint. Its treatment aims to achieve consolidation to improve clinical complaints and prevent post-traumatic arthritis. The indication for using vascularized bone grafts is still controversial. This prospective comparative study aimed to compare consolidation rate and time to healing of scaphoid PSA treated by volar distal radius vascularized bone graft vs non-vascula...

Authors: ADVANCES IN MUSCULOSKELETAL DISEASES AND INFECTIONS - SOTIMI 2019:, Vergano L, Monesi M, Vicenti G, Bizzoca D, Solarino G, Moretti B Abstract The treatment of posterior malleolus fractures has radically changed over the last few years, therefore this study aims to summarize the current evidence on the usefulness of posterior approaches in the management of malleolar fractures. The main elements that suggest the use of a posterior approach to the ankle are the posterior malleolus fragment shape and size, the presence of loose bodies at the fracture site: the possibility to obtain an anatomic fixation of the...

Anteromedial Coronoid Fractures (AMCF) are associated with persistent elbow instability and post traumatic arthritis if managed incorrectly. It is unclear exactly which AMCF fractures require surgical intervention and how to make this decision. The aim of this study was to report outcomes of AMCF managed using a protocol based on reproduction of instability using radiographic and clinical testing, and to ascertain a threshold size of AMCF associated with instability.

CONCLUSIONS: 1. Good outcomes of single stage revision ACL reconstruction surgery are achievable as de-monstrated in our cohort. 2. There is need for good quality research to identify whether BTB, hamstrings or quadriceps autografts are better for ACL Reconstruction. PMID: 32732443 [PubMed - in process]
