We report the arthroscopic and clinical findings of patients with chronic wrist pain following distal radius fracture (DRF) who underwent diagnostic arthroscopy and arthroscopically-assisted tailored treatment. We retrospectively analyzed the records of 15 patients with chronic wrist pain following DRF, who underwent diagnostic arthroscopy and arthroscopically-assisted tailored treatment from 2010 to 2017. The average patient age was 44 years (range, 20–68 years), average time from injury to treatment 21 ± 23.46 months (range, 3–96 months) and average follow up period 20.13 ± 8.71 months ...

Authors: Muñoz-García N, Cordero-Ampuero J, Madero-Jarabo R Abstract Aims: The aim of this study is to analyze the diagnostic value of weight-bearing radiographs, magnetic resonance images (MRI), and the combination of both in osteoarthritic knees when using arthroscopic findings as the "gold standard" to compare with. Methods: A total of 59 patients were studied because of chronic pain in 1 of their knees. Radiographs were classified according to Kellgren-Lawrence scale. Magnetic resonance images were classified according to Vallotton, and arthroscopic findings according to Outerbridge ...

ConclusionsArthroscopic repairs of chronic, massive RCTs, whether complete or partial, are associated with significant improvements in pain, function and objective outcome scores. The rate of repair failure is lower than previously reported, however, still high at 36%. The present paper finds that arthroscopic repair is still a viable treatment option for massive RCTs.Level of evidenceIV.

Knee dislocations leading to multiligament knee injuries are associated with a wide variety of bony, ligamentous, soft tissue, and neurovascular injury patterns. Numerous management strategies have been proposed including nonoperative treatment and surgical repair or reconstruction. In recent years, an emphasis has been placed on anatomic repair and reconstruction principles, which have shown superior outcomes compared with older techniques. However, despite these advances, clinical outcomes continue to vary widely, with many patients experiencing chronic pain, stiffness, loss of range of motion, instability, and failure t...

ConclusionImprovements in subjective ankle function, daily life activities and sports activities were observed within the first year following M-BMS. Our results suggest that preexisting and treated ankle instability did not compromise subjective outcome in patients treated with M-BMS in the first postoperative year.Level of evidenceLevel IV.

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a new minimally invasive surgical technique for the reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) with fascia lata allograft at 60-month minimum follow-up.MethodsNineteen consecutive patients with chronic recurrent patellar dislocation were treated with MPFL reconstruction (53% isolate procedure, 47% in combination with other treatments). Seventeen patients (11 males/6 females) were available at 60-month follow-up and were clinically evaluated with validated scores. New episodes of patellar dislocation were considered failures. Radiographic ...

ConclusionThe study demonstrates significantly lower IMP values in the posterior and lateral compartments compared to the anterior compartments. These findings suggest a lowering of the IMP 1 min post-exercise cut-off value for diagnosing CECS in the lateral and both posterior compartments, which may lead to improved treatment of patients with suspected CECS in the lower leg.Level of evidenceLevel II.

Over the past decade, increased awareness by the medical profession of the devastating consequences of opioid addiction has resulted in substantial efforts to limit the number of opioid prescriptions for both perioperative pain management and chronic pain. While these efforts have had some success, opioid misuse remains a crisis, which we in the orthopaedic community have a particular opportunity to address. It is the belief of the undersigned that progress depends on improved research methods and reporting to further the understanding of pain experience and response to management, with the end goal of identifying more eff...

AbstractBackground:Osteochondral injury is a very common orthopaedic pathology, mainly affecting young, active population, with limited current treatment options. Herein we are presenting cellular and early clinical data of a patient series treated for chronic osteochondral lesions in the knee with a filter-based intra-operative bone marrow aspirate (BMA) separation device.Methods:Fifteen patients with chronic knee osteochondral lesions (60% females, 19 –59 years) were included in this prospective case series. Filtered BMA (f-BMA), containing mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs), was combined with a biomimetic colla...
