Short-term results of a new self-locking cementless femoral stem: a prospective cohort study of the Lima Master SL

ConclusionsThe MasterSL femoral stem performed well in this short-term follow-up study, with high patient satisfaction and good signs of osteointegration. Long-term follow-up will be necessary to evaluate longevity.Level of evidenceLevel 3, Prospective cohort study.Trial registrationThe study was registered on the 30.03.2016 with Australia New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ACTRN12617000550303).

ConclusionThe results of this study showed that the degree of radiocarpal osteoarthritis is higher in conservatively treated patients that should have been operated on according to current guidelines in comparison with patients without an indication for surgery. This might suggest that our current guidelines can be effective in prevention of posttraumatic osteoarthritis. However, the effect on the functional outcome is very limited. Since the degree of radiocarpal osteoarthritis of the non-fractured wrist appeared to be highly associated with the degree of osteoarthritis of the fractured wrist, future studies should always...

CONCLUSION: The clinical and radiological results concerning the MINIMA® short stem are excellent according to this first report of this specific design of the short femoral stems. Because of the small number of cases and short-term follow-up of this study, a longer follow up time and more patients' enrollment is required. PMID: 32405472 [PubMed]

Authors: Liu Peterson S, Scott Donoughe J, O'Neal D, Mombell K, GomezLeonardelli D Abstract INTRODUCTION: The process for working up scaphoid fractures from frontline providers to the specialty care clinic is variable. Initial imaging can often be negative and the management algorithm is not clearly defined. Delays in diagnosis are a contributing factor to scaphoid nonunion. Fractures may not be identified by frontline providers on initial presentation because of radiographically occult injuries. If not treated promptly, scaphoid fractures may be complicated by nonunion, avascular necrosis, and osteoarthritis. ...

Imagine you’re walking along and suddenly experience excruciating knee pain. Though it initially seems stuck in one position, after a minute or two you can limp along home, but just barely. At your doctor’s visit, an x-ray is normal but symptoms continue for weeks. An MRI is performed and now you have an explanation: a torn meniscus. (Two menisci — rubbery cartilage pads that act as shock absorbers — separate the bottom of your knee bone from the top of your shin bone.) A month later, you’re no better despite rest, pain medicines, and physical therapy. It’s time for surgery to fix it, ri...

Conclusion: In our study population, we could not find a significant relationship between the AB0 blood system and fracture patterns. We think that these potential relationships could be explained with further comprehensive studies with larger populations. PMID: 32280678 [PubMed - in process]

‚ÄčThe wrist is not commonly aspirated in the emergency department, but emergent arthrocentesis may be indicated for extreme or concerning cases, and tapping the wrist to determine the underlying pathology or relieve pain may be of great value. The synovial fluid from the joint space can be analyzed for crystals, infection, and blood. This information may help determine the overall plan and aid in decision-making and consultation. The ultimate treatment plan may include admission, intravenous antibiotics, multiple aspirations, and even surgical washout.A swollen, painful wrist that is hot to the touch is concerning for sep...

AbstractIntroductionResults of iterative ACL reconstructions are lower than after primary reconstructions. Our aim was to report the results of a retrospective series of revision using pedicled quadruple hamstring autograft. The hypothesis was that the results were satisfactory and comparable to the literature.MethodsThe study period was from January 2012 to December 2014. Fourteen patients (average age 26) were included. A fascia lata graft was used 12 times for primary reconstruction. Trauma was the cause of failure 12 times. The time interval between primary reconstruction and revision was 6.2  years. Preoperative ...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Osteoarthritis in dysplastic hips should develop from the lateral side of the acetabulum and the femoral head just below. However, the existence of subchondral cysts located more on the medial side contradicts the weight-loading theory. The aim of this study was to confirm the presence of medial cysts at the femoral head and to investigate the relationship between medial cysts and injuries of the ligamentum teres in hip dysplasia. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 257 cases of hip dysplasia. All patients had x-rays and 3-dimensional computed tomographies (3D CT) preoper...
