Combined vascularized bone graft and scaphocapitate fusion in the treatment of stage III(b) Kienböck’s disease: a cohort study involving 11 patients
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.

Return to driving after fracture an overview of current recommendations
Level of Evidence: Level IV. One of the many important considerations after fracture is determining the time for safe return to driving. Although a seemingly mundane question, patients rely on their ability to drive in order to work, take care of their families, and perform day-to-day tasks, making it an important landmark on their road to recovery. Patients who are currently taking narcotic medications, are wearing restrictive medical devices, or have inadequate fracture healing all pose a potential risk to themselves and others if they operate a motor vehicle. Despite objective data on when a patient physically might ...

Trochanteric pain and total hip arthroplasty: a systematic review of the literature
Conclusions: Approximately one in 25 patients who has undergone standard THA experiences postoperative trochanteric pain. With low certainty, the results of this review suggest the surgical approach may not influence incidence of trochanteric pain. The heterogeneity in both diagnostic modalities reported and in treatment options suggests that further prospective research is required to better inform treatment decisions for this common condition.

The effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on function outcome measures following muscle fatigue: a systematic review
Conclusions: Inconsistencies between the studies likely attributed to the unclear findings of the review. Several protocols were used throughout the various studies causing multiple variables that could not be isolated. Electrode placement, stimulation frequency and intensity, and functional testing protocols were the major difference between studies that led to the inconsistent findings. Although neuromuscular electrical stimulation is often used as a recovery modality, research findings are mixed regarding its effectiveness as an intervention for recovery.

Conclusions: Management of lesions of the proximal femur and acetabulum can be managed with a variety of treatment constructions. The utilization of PFR is increasingly more common especially in the setting of destructive metastatic lesions in the proximal femur as soft-tissue repairs improve ambulatory function. Additionally, the survivorship of endoprosthesis is greater than intramedullary fixation and is recommended for reconstruction for individuals with an expected survivorship greater than 7 mo. Lesions within the periacetabular region that are refractory to nonoperative management may benefit anywhere on th...

A new modular external fixator: A retrospective review
The Dolphix is a new external fixation system consisting of relatively few components. Its modular nature allows for a variety of possible configurations, making it useful for the treatment of many types of fractures. The fixator can be adjusted after it is placed in order to improve either patient comfort or fracture reduction, and the device can be removed at the bedside under light sedation with no need for additional instrumentation. During the first year of experience with this device at our level I trauma center, fixator times have been relatively short and there have been no equipment failures or pin-tract problems....
