Patient-perceived knee enlargement after total knee arthroplasty: prevalence, risk factors, and association with functional outcomes and radiological analysis
ConclusionPPEK is common in TKA patients, especially in individuals with smaller height and weight. PPEK is associated with poor satisfaction and lower functional scores. In radiology, post-operative ACO, PCO, and anterior underhang of the tibial component were correlated with PPEK. (Source: International Orthopaedics)

Humeral stem with low filling ratio reduces stress shielding in primary reverse shoulder arthroplasty
ConclusionEven at one  year follow-up, patients receiving LFR stems with autogenous bone grafting had significantly less humeral stress shielding compared to patients with HFR stem with press-fit in primary RSA, without compromising stem stability. (Source: International Orthopaedics)

The Hoffa-like fracture of the tibial plateau: a clinical study
ConclusionThis Hoffa-like fracture of the tibial plateau is a rare condition; however, it can occur. Orthopaedic surgeons should pay attention to this neglected but actually familiar fracture type. (Source: International Orthopaedics)

Superior labral anterior and posterior (SLAP) lesions of the long bicep insertion on the glenoid: management in athletes
ConclusionThe evidence is unclear as to which factors influence the failure to achieve optimal outcomes even in cases with anatomical repairs. Studies with a high level of evidence including different variables are necessary to define when to repair, perform tenodesis, and what surgical technique to use for both options.

Predicting surgical factors for unplanned overnight admission in ambulatory arthroscopic surgery of the knee: a prospective cohort in one hundred and eighty four patients
ConclusionThe UOA after AKAS is more common in more complex surgery compared to less invasive surgery. This study showed that unplanned admission significantly associated with many factors —as patient factors, surgical invasiveness, and tourniquet time. However, tourniquet time is the only independent predictor for UOA. Therefore, strict perioperative management protocol must be applied in AKAS, and all patients having these risk factors should be prepared for UOA. (Source: International Orthopaedics)

Clinical outcomes, healing rate, and presence of peri-meniscal cysts after all-inside meniscal repair in combination with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a prospective comparative study with magnetic resonance imaging assessment
ConclusionsMeniscal repairs produced good short-term results when performed in combination to ACL reconstruction. Full or partial healing at MRI was present in 86% of cases. One patient out of three developed peri-meniscal cysts. (Source: International Orthopaedics)

Tibial plateau fractures: three dimensional fracture mapping and morphologic measurements
ConclusionsSchatzker classification combined with 3D fracture mapping provides a new presentation of tibial plateau fracture morphology. According to the 3D fracture mapping, different types of TPFs have distinctly different distribution characteristics of fracture lines. There are significant differences between different types of fracture injury segments. (Source: International Orthopaedics)

Comparison between anterior and posterior plating systems in extra-articular distal-third diaphyseal humeral fractures
ConclusionBoth anterior and posterior plating provide satisfactory clinical and radiologic outcomes for extra-articular distal-third diaphyseal humeral fractures. Despite the satisfactory outcomes, however, posterior plating is highly associated with plate-related complaints, which might be one of the considerations when the surgical method is selected for extra-articular distal-third diaphyseal humeral fractures.
