Authors:
Jiha Kim

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2020 Jun 18. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Department of Neurosurgery, Kangwon National University, School of Medicine, Kangwon National University Hospital, Chuncheon-Si, Gangwon-Do, South Korea.

Delayed hypersensitivity reaction to metal ions is rare and has been mostly documented among patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty with metal-on-metal bearing surfaces. Nonetheless, to our knowledge, only a few cases associated with spinal arthrodesis have been reported in the literature. The aim of this case report was to describe the clinical features of a rare case of delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction to nickel that occurred after an extraordinarily long period of time (approximately 15 years) after spinal arthrodesis.

Survey on the surgical skills of orthopedics and traumatology residents from accredited and nonaccredited institutions in İstanbul.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2020 Mar;54(2):168-177

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Şişli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, İstanbul, Turkey.

Objective: To investigate whether orthopedic and traumatology residents who are undergoing training achieve competence in surgical techniques after completion of their specialization and to determine whether there are significant differences between the responses of residents from accredited and nonaccredited institutions.

Methods: A total of 131 orthopedics and traumatology residents from nine institutions in the İstanbul province answered the questionnaire during the morning training meeting. In addition to basic demographic data, level of seniority, equipment competence, and theoretical and practical training, the residents were asked about their opinion on what type of surgeries they could perform after their specialization, considering the surgery and follow-up of the case as well as the complications occurring during this period.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2020 Mar;54(2):144-148

Department of Orthopedics, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan;Department of Biotechnology, Hung-Kuang University, Taichung, Taiwan.

Objective: This study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of a newly developed transpedicular, anterior open-wedge osteotomy procedure with lamina preservation to correct sagittal imbalance in regional kyphotic deformities following compression fractures.

Methods: All seven patients [four females and three males; mean (range) age, 67 (56-78) years] included in this study underwent surgery between May 2005 and May 2016 for symptomatic, rigid kyphosis secondary to compression fractures. Transpedicular, anterior open-wedge osteotomy with lamina preservation was performed in all patients using an osteotome to create a transverse fracture in the vertebral body through bilateral pedicles and an anterior open-wedge space filled with compacted bone graft to correct kyphosis.

Extraskeletal osteosarcoma misdiagnosed as heterotopic ossification after periprosthetic femoral fracture: A case report.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2020 Jan;54(1):118-123

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Hanyang University, College of Medicine, Guri Hospital, Gyeonggi, Korea.

Extraskeletal osteosarcoma is a malignant tumor of soft tissue characterized by osteoid production and has a very low prevalence, comprising approximately 4% of all osteosarcomas and about 1% of all soft tissue sarcomas, and a total of about 350 cases have been reported until now. Heterotopic ossification is a pathological finding of bony tissue in soft tissue regions such as muscle, skin and subcutaneous tissue. We report a case of an 86-year-old woman with a history of total hip arthroplasty (THA), in which open reduction and internal fixation were done for periprosthetic femoral Fracture. Read More
