Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2021 ;88(6):461-463

Klinika dětské a dospělé ortopedie a traumatologie, 2. lékařská fakulta Univerzity Karlovy a Fakultní nemocnice v Motole, Praha.

Differential diagnosis of tumor processes in orthopedics is a relatively broad and inherently very serious issue, especially if the patients are pediatric patients. A number of examination procedures is used in diagnostics, together with a wide range of complementary laboratory and imaging methods. However, the clinical examination, including the collected anamnestic data, remains to be the cornerstone. Read More

Arthroscopic Assisted Percutaneous Screw Fixation of a Postage Stamp Anterior Glenoid Fracture.

Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2021 ;88(6):456-460

Halic University, Faculty of Health Sciences, Istanbul, Turkey.

Bio-absorbable anchors are widely used for Bankart repair in shoulder instability surgery. Suture anchor placement for labral repair may give rise to osteolysis and/or create stress risers in the glenoid rim, which may be the underlying reasons for glenoid rim fracture with a fracture line passing through previous anchor placement sites, the so-called "postage stamp fracture". Intraarticular fractures of the glenoid have been treated via open reduction and internal fixation through an arthrotomy, which may lead to potential postoperative complications like infection, neurovascular injuries, joint stiffness, and a long recovery period.

Arthroscopic Minimal Invasive Treatment of Posterolateral Tibial Plateau Impression Fractures.

Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2021 ;88(5):382-385

Department for Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery, BG Klinik, University of Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany.

Posterolateral fractures of the tibial plateau are difficult to address. Malunion can lead to early posttraumatic arthritis of the knee due to instability and elevated joint reaction forces. Arthroscopically assisted percutaneous reduction facilitates visualization and avoids open approaches either directly from posterolateral or from lateral with optional extension via a lateral epicondylus osteotomy.
