    Late treatment of obstetrical brachial plexus palsy by humeral rotational osteotomy and lengthening with an intramedullary elongation nail.
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 May 8. Epub 2017 May 8.
    Dokuz Eylül University Hospital, Turkey.
    To date, all the authors who have recommended external rotation osteotomy (ERO) in the late treatment of obstetrical brachial plexus palsy (OBPP), have neglected upper limb length discrepancy, which is an another sequelae of OBPP. In this paper, a new technique is reported for the late treatment of OBPP patients with upper limb length discrepancy, in which both humeral external rotation osteotomy (ERO) and lengthening are applied with an intramedullary elongation nail. With this technique, upper limb function is improved through re-orientation of the shoulder arc to a more functional range, and further improvements will be seen in the appearance of the upper limb with the elimination of length discrepancy.

    Partial quadriceps tendon transfer for revision medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction: A new surgical technique.
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 May 28;51(3):258-261. Epub 2017 Apr 28.
    Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology, Hospital del Mar i l'Esperança - Parc de Salut Mar, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Barcelona, Spain.
    Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction for patellofemoral instability is a common procedure. Although MPFL reconstruction is a successful procedure in terms of return to normal life or sports, revision cases are challenging due to previous holes into the patella or implants placed in the anatomical femoral insertion site. In this technical note, the use of a partial quadriceps tendon transfer to the adductor magnus tendon is presented as a good solution for revision cases to avoid the use of implants, bone drilling, use of allografts, or two-stage surgical procedures.

    Decision analysis to identify the ideal treatment for adult spinal deformity: What is the impact of complications on treatment outcomes?
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 May 25;51(3):181-190. Epub 2017 Apr 25.
    Bordeaux University Hospital, Bordeaux, France.
    Objective: The aim of this study was to analyze the impact of treatment complications on outcomes in adult spinal deformity (ASD) using a decision analysis (DA) model.

    Methods: The study included 535 ASD patients (371 with non-surgical (NS) and 164 with surgical (S) treatment) from an international multicentre database of ASD patients. DA was structured in two main steps; 1) Baseline analysis (Assessing the probabilities of outcomes, Assessing the values of preference -utilities-, Combining information on probability and utility and assigning the quality adjusted life expectancy (QALE) for each treatment) and 2) Sensitivity analysis.

    Evaluation of vitamin D levels in patients with chronic low back-leg pain.
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 May 21;51(3):243-247. Epub 2017 Apr 21.
    Abant İzzet Baysal University, İzzet Baysal Training and Research Hospital, Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Bolu, Turkey.
    Objective: We aimed to examine the relationship between the levels of vitamin D and patients with chronic low back-leg pain (CLBLP) and to investigate its effects on pain and functional capacity.

    Methods: 145 patients (female/male:103/42) with CLBLP, aged between 35 and 65 years (mean age: 53,06 ± 8,14), participated in the study. Visual Analog Pain Scale (VAS) was used to measure the state of pain. Read More

    Influence of the different anteromedial portal on femoral tunnel orientation during anatomic ACL reconstruction.

    Gyeongsang National University Graduate School of Medicine Jinju, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:
    Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of femoral tunnel orientation, drilled through the accessory anteromedial (AAM) portal or the high AM portal in anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

    Methods: In 16 cadaver knees, using o'clock method, centers of the ACL femoral footprint were drilled with an 8-mm reamer via an AAM portal (eight knees) or a high AM portal (eight knees). Computed tomography (CT) scans were taken of each knee. Read More

    Anterior cervical fusion with interbody cage containing beta-tricalcium phosphate: Clinical and radiological results.
