Clinical and Radiological Evaluation of Results of Surgical Correction of Forefoot Adduction by Cuneiform and Cuboid Osteotomy Using Radiological Forefoot Measurements
CONCLUSIONS: 1. Medial cuneiform and cuboid osteotomy with a transposed wedge improves both clinical and radiological parameters, especially in children under the age of 6. 2. Besides the metatarsus adductus angle, the talar-first meta-tarsal, calcaneal-fifth metatarsal and Kilmartin's angles appear to be good radiologic indicators of correction.PMID:33568567 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001.0014.4226 (Source: Ortopedia, Traumatologia, Rehabilitacja)

Stress and Anxiety Management During the COVID-19 Pandemic (Lessons Learnt from a Cohort of Orthopaedic Registrars Redeployed to ITU)
CONCLUSIONS: 1. The disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a source of massive stress and an-xiety for health care workers. 2. Our experience shows that stress is controllable with the correct strategies. 3. The main points are early identification of vulnerable groups, proper induction, active involvement, adequate explanation, appreciation, good communication, and available psychological support whenever needed. 4. These are essential to maintain a resilient workforce against upcoming waves of COVID-19.PMID:33568568 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001.0014.4211 (Source: Ortopedia, Traumatologia, Rehabilitacja)

Does Not Use of Closed Suction Drainage in Total Knee Arthroplasty with Tranexamic Acid Reduce Blood Loss?
CONCLUSIONS: 1. Performing Total Knee Arthroplasty with preoperative and postoperative ivtranexamic acid and without drain decreased postoperative reduction in Hb level on the day after surgery in the current study. 2. But blood loss and blood transfusion rates when compared to patients with drain, no significant difference was found. 3. Drain use in knee replacements does not offer an advantage over drainless TKAs regarding the findings of our study. 4. Future studies with longer follow-up are needed in our opinion.PMID:33568570 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001.0014.4224 (Source: Ortopedia, Traumatologia, Rehabilitacja)

Does Not Use of Closed Suction Drainage in Total Knee Arthroplasty with Tranexamic Acid Reduce Blood Loss?
CONCLUSIONS: 1. Performing Total Knee Arthroplasty with preoperative and postoperative ivtranexamic acid and without drain decreased postoperative reduction in Hb level on the day after surgery in the current study. 2. But blood loss and blood transfusion rates when compared to patients with drain, no significant difference was found. 3. Drain use in knee replacements does not offer an advantage over drainless TKAs regarding the findings of our study. 4. Future studies with longer follow-up are needed in our opinion.PMID:33568570 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001.0014.4224 (Source: Ortopedia, Traumatologia, Rehabilitacja)

Ulnar and Median Nerve Abnormalities in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
CONCLUSIONS: 1. The threshold of sensation in the fingers innervated by the median and ulnar nerve is significantly lon-ger in patients with CTS than in controls. 2. Surgical treatment decreases the threshold of sensation in the fingers innervated by the median nerve. 3. Surgical treatment does not decrease the threshold of sensation in the fingers innervated by the ul-nar nerve. 4. The preoperative and postoperative threshold of sensation in the fingers innervated by the median and ulnar nerve is significantly longer in patients with severe carpal tunnel than in mild and moderate cases.PMID:33568572 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001....

Quality of Life and Associated Factors in Latin American Patients Undergoing Total Hip Arthroplasty
CONCLUSIONS: 1. Individuals who had undergone THA showed higher HRQOL scores in all domains when compared to those still awaiting the procedure, and pain reduction was the variable most strongly associated with the improvement in quality of life of those patients. 2. Occupation and mobility were associated with the Stiffness domain of QOL; Occupation also had a bearing on health-related quality of life as a whole. 3. Physical Activity of the WOMAC instrument was associated with time of diagnosis, patient's body weight, and function as assessed by the HHS.PMID:33506797 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001.0014.6054 (Source: Ortopedia, Tra...

A Comparative Study for Different Types of Thumb Base Osteoarthritis Injections: A Randomized Controlled Interventional Study
CONCLUSION: 1. The 3 types of injection (PRP, HA, steroids) produced good results in thumb base OA with re-gard to improving pain and hand function, but only HA had a long-lasting effect and best results for pain and function. 2. The limitations in our study may be the follow-up period which needs to be longer to show how long the effect will last with HA.PMID:33506798 | DOI:10.5604/01.3001.0014.6055 (Source: Ortopedia, Traumatologia, Rehabilitacja)

Temporary Use of Skeletal Traction in Management of Pediatric Supracondylar Humeral Fractures
CONCLUSIONS: 1. X-ray-guided closed reduction and percutaneous K wire fixation is a method of choice in the treatment of displaced supracondylar humeral fractures in children. If closed reduction fails, the surgeon is faced with a choice between primary open reduction and the use of direct traction through the olecranon. 2. The use of skeletal traction following failure of primary emergency CRPF results in local improvement in the fracture region and allows for scheduling an elective repeat delayed closed reduction and percutaneous K wire fixation procedure. 3. The algorithm used in clinical practice, based on literature r...
