Influence of carpal-ulnar translation on clinical outcome after scaphocapitate arthrodesis for the treatment of late-stage Kienb öck disease

This study sought to compare postoperative outcomes after scaphocapitate arthrodesis (SCA) for the treatment of late-stage Kienböck disease according to the amount of ulnar translation of the carpus and to identify surgical factors associated with carpal-ulnar translation.METHODS: Thirty-nine patients diagnosed with Kienböck disease (Lichtman stages III-IV) and treated with SCA were retrospectively reviewed. They were divided into the translated group (n=28) and untranslated group (n=11) according to the presence of carpal-ulnar translation. The following surgical factors in the patients were assessed: excision of the lunate, postoperative carpal height ratio, and radioscaphoid angle (RSA). Pain Visual Analog scale (VAS) score, wrist range of motion, grip strength, modified Mayo wrist score (MMWS), the Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (QuickDASH) score, and progression of radioscaphoid osteoarthritis were also assessed.RESULTS: All patients showed functional improvement after a mean postoperative follow-up period of 40 months (VAS: 4.1 vs. 1.1, p

J Am Acad Orthop Surg. 2021 Nov 18. doi: 10.5435/JAAOS-D-21-00543. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Rotator cuff repair (RCR) is commonly performed before reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) with conflicting evidence on the effect on arthroplasty outcomes. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the effect of a prior RCR on the outcomes and complications of primary RSA.METHODS: Between 2007 and 2017, 438 RSAs performed in patients with a prior RCR and 876 case-matched controls were identified from a multicenter database. Patients were grouped based on a preoperative diagnosis of glenohumeral osteoarthr...

Last week I described some of the reasons for using a case formulation approach when working through initial assessment information, and today I’m going to describe one approach for organising a formulation. This is the “4 P” formulation, and it’s one that’s often used in mental health (Bolton, 2014). In the 4 P model, there are four questions to ask yourself: Preconditions – Why is this person vulnerable to this problem?Precipitating factors – Why now? This can mean “why is this person having symptoms now?” or “why is this person presenting to this person ...

This study aimed to evaluate the knee osteoarthritis status among the population over age 50 in Kermanshah, Iran. The research community consisted of the population who has been visited in the health bus in Kermanshah in 2016-2017, of which 589 were chosen by an available sampling method. A WOMAC questionnaire was used to determine the prevalence of knee osteoarthritis. The prevalence of knee stiffness rate after sitting, lying down, or resting during the day among women and men were 40.7% and 20.5%, respectively. According to the findings, the highest prevalence rate of knee pain was in subjects with a BMI higher than 30 ...

Acta Orthop Belg. 2021 Sep;87(3):533-539.ABSTRACTThe aim of the study was to determine if the use of tendon allografts in combination with distal scaphoid resection for the treatment of isolated STT arthrosis is a save procedure. We reviewed the postoperative complications, re-operations, clinical and radiological results of this treatment modality. A retrospective cohort study was conducted. Investigated parameters include wrist mobility (wrist extension and -flexion), strength (grip- and pinch strength), patient-reported outcome scores : Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand score ...
