Risk Factors for Contralateral Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis: A Meta-analysis of Cohort and Case-control Studies

Conclusion: There are several risk factors for subsequent contralateral SCFE. On the basis of the available data, younger patients with a high PSA of the unaffected hip would most likely benefit from prophylactic fixation of the unaffected hip. Level of Evidence: Level II.

Conclusions: Revascularization and restoration of lunate anatomy together with an unloading procedure gives better results in the treatment of stage III(b) Kienböck’s disease. This technique prevents further collapse of the lunate with satisfactory long term results. Intraoperative wrist arthroscopy is mandatory to prove the intact lunate articular surface. Level of Evidence: Level IV.

Application of Anchoring Technique in Unilateral Percutaneous Vertebroplasty for Neurologically Intact Kümmell's Disease. Pain Res Manag. 2020;2020:4145096 Authors: Qin R, Zhang X, Liu H, Zhou B, Zhou P, Hu C Abstract Purpose: We aimed to present our experience in anchoring technique and evaluate the efficacy and safety of unilateral percutaneous vertebroplasty in patients with neurologically intact Kümmell's disease. Methods: From January 2014 to December 2017, 29 patients (17 males and 12 females) with neurologically intact Kümmell's disease were operated on using anchoring techn...

Conclusion BFR therapy is safe and well tolerated after operatively treated distal radius fractures. The addition of BFR therapy can result in quicker reduction in pain with activity and improvement in patient disability when used early following operative management of a distal radius fracture. Level of Evidence This is a Level 1, prognostic study.

Conclusion: The radiographic outcome did not correspond to the functional outcome 1 year postoperatively. Older patients report less pain and better functional outcome compared with younger patients. There were no tendon ruptures and the frequency of hardware removal was acceptable. Complex intra-articular DRFs AO type C can be managed with volar and dorsal frame-plate fixation to restore distal radius anatomy and achieve a good functional outcome.

Conclusions: Individuals over 50 years of age with severe knee osteoarthritis had poor lumbo-pelvic sagittal alignment. Moreover, the progression severity of knee osteoarthritis had more impact onstronger relationship with lumbo-pelvic malalignment and disability-related low back pain in women than in men.

This study focused on the optimal dose for each segment and the efficacy of E.BMP-2 as a substitute for autogenous iliac bone graft. Ten patients were enrolled from January 2015 to December 2015, and underwent an additional posterolateral fusion procedure, with 2.5 mg of E.BMP-2 followed by decompression, transpedicular fixation, and interbody fusion. The mean follow-up period was 13.9 months, and regular radiological examinations were performed in every case. Clinical outcomes were measured with a visual analog scale for back pain (VAS-BP), and leg pain (VAS-LP) and the Korean Oswestry Disability Index (K-ODI). All par...

This study presents the midterm clinical and radiological results of SCA in Kienböck's disease. Materials and Methods The data were reviewed from January 2016 to December 2017. Lichtman's classification used to stage the disease. Clinical variables were noted for wrist range of motion, grip strength, visual analog scale (VAS) score, quick disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand (quickDASH), and patient-rated wrist evaluation (PRWE) scores. Radiographs were evaluated for union, ulnar variance, carpal height ratio, radioscaphoid angle, and scapholunate angle. Results A total of 11 patients of Stage I...

This article aims to provide a comprehensive review of the literature on the spinopelvic parameters that are most relevant in clinical practice, as well as to describe compensatory mechanisms of the pelvis and lower limbs.O equil íbrio sagital descreve o alinhamento ideal da coluna vertebral no plano sagital, sendo resultante da interação entre a coluna e os membros inferiores, por meio da bacia. O entendimento do equilíbrio sagital ganhou importância principalmente na última década, uma vez que o desequilíbrio sagit al se correlaciona diretamente com incapacidade e do...

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of high viscosity bone cement in the percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) for treatment of single-level osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. Eighty patients were enrolled in this study. All patients were received PVP, and they were divided into 2 groups according to the viscosity of bone cement, either high viscosity bone cement (HV group) or low viscosity cement (LV group). Oswestry Disability Index questionnaire and visual analog scale as clinical assessments were quantified. The operative time and injected bone cement volume were recorded. The anterior vertebral height (AVH) an...

Abstract Indirect decompression using oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) improves spinal canal dimensions by reducing spondylolisthesis and restoring intervertebral disk height in patients with degenerative lumbar diseases. However, the clinical significance of these radiological improvements has not been fully evaluated in the literature. To examine the relationship between the clinical and radiological outcomes following OLIF, the authors prospectively studied 41 patients who underwent single-level OLIF with percutaneous pedicle screw fixation for lumbar degenerative disease, including degenerative and spon...
