The ISIS ® prosthesis in 77 cases of trapeziometacarpal arthritis: outcomes and survival at a minimum follow-up of 5 years
J Hand Surg Eur Vol. 2022 Sep 27:17531934221123166. doi: 10.1177/17531934221123166. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe aim of this study was to determine the clinical and radiographic outcomes and survivorship of the ISIS® (Evolutis™, Briennon, France) trapeziometacarpal prosthesis at a minimum follow-up of 5 years. Of the 77 implants (66 patients) reviewed at a mean follow-up of 107.5 months, pain and function had improved significantly. Fourteen cups (19%) and three stems (4%) appeared to have loosened on radiographs. Loosening occurred more often with cemented cups than screwed cups (p = 0.0342). In five cases, the pr...

Indications, anaesthesia and postoperative protocol for replantation and revascularization in the hand in Nordic countries
J Hand Surg Eur Vol. 2022 Sep 27:17531934221123427. doi: 10.1177/17531934221123427. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn this survey, we compared the current postoperative practices in the largest replantation units of four Nordic countries. The topics included were indication for surgery, anaesthesia, postoperative monitoring, use of antibiotics, anticoagulation and postoperative intravenous fluids, change of dressings, duration of bed rest and hospital stay, hand therapy and follow-up after discharge. Although there were many similarities between the units in the postoperative protocols, we found a large variety of practices...

Residual flexion deformity after scaphoid nonunion surgery: 7-year follow-up study
J Hand Surg Eur Vol. 2022 Sep 27:17531934221125355. doi: 10.1177/17531934221125355. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe clinical implication of a residual flexion deformity following surgery for scaphoid nonunion is unclear. Sixty-three patients who underwent scaphoid nonunion surgery were assessed after a mean of 7 years (range 5-10) to analyse the outcomes based on the presence of residual scaphoid deformity. Primary outcome was Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand score. Secondary outcomes were Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation score, wrist range of motion and strength. Patients were dichotomized to residual deformity ...

Assessment of Intraoperative Rotational Alignment of Closed Locked Intramedullary Nailing for Humerus Fractures
Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg. 2022 Sep 26. doi: 10.1097/BTH.0000000000000411. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIntramedullary nailing of humerus fractures has evolved over the past half century and has grown in popularity especially for the polytraumatized patient. The importance of restoring appropriate rotational alignment is equivalent to that of restoring sagittal and coronal alignment to decrease the risk of shoulder degenerative changes and limit range of motion discrepancy from the contralateral limb. This technique is designed to introduce an intraoperative fluoroscopic method to obtain adequate rotational alignment of hu...

Characterizing Leadership Trends in Hand Surgery Fellowship Programs
CONCLUSIONS: Fellowship directors are largely White and men. They are distinguished by their research productivity. A few select programs contribute an outsized proportion of individuals to FD positions. This may be due to a pipeline effect or because applicants with ambition to become FDs pursue specific programs for training.CLINICAL RELEVANCE: This study characterizes the academic/demographic factors of hand surgery FDs.PMID:36157297 | PMC:PMC9492798 | DOI:10.1016/j.jhsg.2022.06.002 (Source: Hand Surgery)

Repair of Subacute Intrasubstance Rupture of the Biceps Brachii in a 16-Year-Old Patient
J Hand Surg Glob Online. 2022 Jun 20;4(5):295-298. doi: 10.1016/j.jhsg.2022.05.013. eCollection 2022 Sep.ABSTRACTA 16-year-old boy sustained a complete, closed, intrasubstance rupture of both heads of the biceps brachii after a rope swing accident. The patient was managed with open direct repair of the muscle belly. After the surgery, he underwent an extensive physical therapy regimen and regained full range of motion and strength. To our knowledge, this is the youngest reported case of a subacute intrasubstance rupture of the biceps brachii muscle treated surgically in the literature. There is no consensus in the literatu...
