Clavicular osteotomy in complicated revision of total shoulder arthroplasty: indications, surgical technique, and outcomes.

Int Orthop 2020 May 30. Epub 2020 May 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Ghent University Hospital, 10 C. Heymanslaan, Entrance 75, Route 740, 9000, Ghent, East Flanders, Belgium.

Purpose: Adequate exposure in revision of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is important for optimal prosthesis placement and functional results. A clavicular osteotomy in difficult cases of revision TSA is a useful surgical technique that increases the superior exposure area, provides safer dissection, minimizes damage to the anterior deltoid muscle, improves glenoid access, and allows for superior dislocation of the humeral component. There is a paucity of literature analyzing the clavicular osteotomy during challenging cases of revision TSA. Read More

Multidisciplinary treatment of a complicated crural degloving injury in a diabetic patient.

Injury 2020 Feb 11. Epub 2020 Feb 11.

Department of Traumatology, University of Szeged, Hungary.

Diabetes is a common disease that potentially interferes with healing processes after lower limb trauma. In our presented case a trimalleolar ankle fracture with undiscovered serious soft-tissue injuries resulted in chronic soft-tissue complications in a diabetic patient, requiring three and a half months of hospitalization in a higher level center and the application of state-of-the-art wound treatment, including vacuum-assisted closure therapy, Integra bioengineered skin substitute, split-thickness skin-grafting, and methods enhancing wound healing, such as polarized light therapy and transdermal CO delivery. The presented case emphasizes the importance of soft-tissue care and multidisciplinary approach in diabetic trauma patients with poor compliance. Read More

Department of Molecular Medicine, School of Advanced Technologies in Medicine, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Wound healing is known as one of the most complicated biological processes for injured skin caused by surgical, trauma, burns, or diabetic diseases, which causes a nonfunctioning mass of fibrotic tissue. Recent reports have suggested that exosomes (EXOs) secreted by this type of stem cells may contribute to their paracrine effect. In this study, the EXOs were isolated from the supernatant of cultured adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) via ultracentrifugation and filtration. Read More

Immune Regulation of Skin Wound Healing: Mechanisms and Novel Therapeutic Targets.

Adv Wound Care (New Rochelle) 2018 Jul;7(7):209-231

European Molecular Biology Laboratory Australia, Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University, Victoria, Australia.

The immune system plays a central role in orchestrating the tissue healing process. Hence, controlling the immune system to promote tissue repair and regeneration is an attractive approach when designing regenerative strategies. This review discusses the pathophysiology of both acute and chronic wounds and possible strategies to control the immune system to accelerate chronic wound closure and promote skin regeneration (scar-less healing) of acute wounds.

Department of Cardiology, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories, Rabin Medical Center, Petah Tikva & The "Sackler" Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

A 75 year-old female with symptomatic severe mitral regurgitation of a bio-prosthetic valve secondary to valve leaflet perforation due to endocarditis underwent a mitral valve in valve replacement in an existing Hancock 27 mm valve using a trans-femoral/trans-septal approach. The procedure was complicated by an iatrogenic atrial septal defect post trans-septal puncture causing a severe right-to-left shunt due, possibly, to the combination of severe pulmonary hypertension and moderate tricuspid regurgitation the patient had suffered from at base line. Once the sheath was removed an immediate desaturation was observed which required emergent closure with an AMPLATZER ASD Occluder device (St. Read More
