[Optimal timing of a hip fracture operation].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2019 Jan 29;163. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

LUMC, afd. Traumachirurgie, Leiden.

There is an ongoing discussion about optimal timing of hip fracture surgery and much has been published about this subject. There is no literature-based consensus regarding the timeframe in which a hip fracture patient should be operated on; nonetheless, the National Health Care Institute in the Netherlands has been using 'time to operation' as a quality indicator since 2017. Analysis of the data from the Health and Youth Care Inspectorate on the quality indicator 'Percentage of patients operated on within one calendar day' showed that in Dutch hospitals 93% of the ASA grade 1-2 patients and 86% of the ASA grade > 2 patients were operated on within one calendar day.

Polymethylmethacrylate-augmented fenestreted pedicle-screw fixation in low bone quality patients: a case series and literature review.

J Biol Regul Homeost Agents 2018 Nov-Dec;32(6 Suppl. 1):71-76

Department of Oncologic and Degenerative Spine Surgery, IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli - Bologna, Italy.

The use of pedicle screws in low bone quality patients implicates risks of secondary implant loosening for grip lack. In fact, the result is a reduced mechanical stability at bone-screw interface and consequently an increased chance of pullout and hardware failure. Augmentation techniques have been described for many years and fenestrated screws that allow cement injection is one of them. Read More

The effect of indirect admission via hospital transfer on hip fracture patients in Ireland.

Ir J Med Sci 2018 Jul 4. Epub 2018 Jul 4.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, St. Vincent's University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Background And Aims: Current best practice states that hip fracture patients should undergo surgery within 48 hours to minimise perioperative complications. There are 10 emergency departments (EDs) in Ireland that receive hip fracture patients without a trauma and orthopaedic surgery unit on site. Idle periods and duplicated preoperative investigations can lead to a prolonged time to surgery. Read More

Intriguing Periprosthetic Fracture of Hip Stem and Proximal Femoral Replacement.

Cureus 2018 Apr 17;10(4):e2496. Epub 2018 Apr 17.

Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, Galway University Hospital, Galway, IRL.

Lateral femoral prosthesis perforation is an uncommon periprosthetic fracture. Periprosthetic fractures may be fixed with open reduction and internal fixation, or with revision arthroplasty, depending on the type of fracture, the condition of the host bone in the proximal femur, the stability of the implant, and occasionally the medical co-morbidities of the patient. Proximal femoral replacement is a complex and challenging procedure but provides a better chance of early mobilisation. Read More

The Adjustable Locking Suspension Sling Technique for Fixation of the Tibial Eminence Fracture in Adolescents.

Arthrosc Tech 2018 May 16;7(5):e491-e497. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Mansoura University Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, Mansoura University, Mansoura, Dakahlia, Egypt.

Avulsion fractures of the tibial eminence, although generally a rare injury pattern, are more common in children and adolescents than in adults. Many open and arthroscopic techniques are available with variable degrees of satisfying results and incidence of complications and adverse effects. Arthroscopic fixation appeared to improve the functional outcomes with fewer complications than the open fixation. Read More

Management of a Complex Lower Limb Open Fracture in a Teenage Patient: A Case Report.

Ostomy Wound Manage 2018 05;64(5):47-52

The challenges of managing Gustilo IIIB tibial fractures (ie, high energy trauma with a contaminated wound >10 cm in length, severe comminution ["crumbling"] or segmental fractures, and periosteal stripping) in children are unique in part because no clear guidelines exist and the injuries may cause short-term and long-term complications. Repeated wound debridement and secondary reconstruction are required in approximately 20% of these cases in both adults and children. A 13-year-old girl presented with severe polytrauma including an open Gustilo type IIIB fracture of the left lower leg. Read More

Management of aortic injury during minimally invasive lateral lumbar interbody fusion.

Eur Spine J 2018 07 7;27(Suppl 3):538-543. Epub 2018 May 7.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, 505 Parnassus Ave. Room M779, San Francisco, CA, 94143, USA.

Purpose: Minimally invasive lateral approaches to the lumbar spine allow for interbody fusion with good visualization of the disk space, minimal blood loss, and decreased length of stay. Major neurologic, vascular, and visceral complications are rare with this approach; however, the steps in management for severe vascular injuries are not well defined. We present a case report of aortic injury during lateral interbody fusion and discuss the use of endovascular repair. Read More
