Closed reduction with or without adductor tenotomy for developmental dysplasia of the hip presenting at walking age.

Curr Orthop Pract 2017 Mar 3;28(2):195-199. Epub 2017 Mar 3.

Orthopedics and Traumatology Department, Cairo University, Egypt.

Background: Many children with developmental dislocation of the hip especially in underdeveloped countries reach walking age and still remain undiagnosed, which can be detrimental to their growth and development. Because of the lack medical services often encountered in these regions, it would be attractive to find a cheap and effective treatment. Our work evaluated the results of treatment of these children by closed reduction with or without adductor tenotomy in a prospective study. Read More

Real-world data confirm clinical trial outcomes for rivaroxaban in orthopaedic patients.

Curr Orthop Pract 2015 May;26(3):299-305

Department of Medicine, Hamilton General Hospital, HHS-McMaster Clinic, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a potential cause of morbidity and mortality in patients after major orthopaedic surgery. Based on the results of the international phase III RECORD (Regulation of Coagulation in Orthopaedic Surgery to Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism) program, the oral, direct Factor Xa inhibitor rivaroxaban has been approved in many countries for the prevention of VTE after elective hip arthroplasty or knee arthroplasty. However, study results of randomized controlled trials may have limited generalizability to routine clinical practice in unselected patients. Read More

A NASA discovery has current applications in orthopaedics.

Authors:
Howard B Cotler

Curr Orthop Pract 2015 Jan;26(1):72-74

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been actively used for nearly 40 yr, during which time it has been known to reduce pain, inflammation, and edema. It also has the ability to promote healing of wounds, including deep tissues and nerves, and prevent tissue damage through cell death. Much of the landmark research was done by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and these studies provided a springboard for many additional basic science studies. Read More

Orthopaedic biofilm infections.

Curr Orthop Pract 2011 Nov;22(6):558-563

National Centre for Advanced Tribology, University of Southampton, Southampton, UK.

A recent paradigm shift in microbiology affects orthopaedic surgery and most other medical and dental disciplines because more than 65% of bacterial infections treated by clinicians in the developed world are now known to be caused by organisms growing in biofilms. These slime-enclosed communities of bacteria are inherently resistant to host defenses and to conventional antibacterial therapy, and these device-related and other chronic bacterial infections are unaffected by the vaccines and antibiotics that have virtually eliminated acute infections caused by planktonic (floating) bacteria. We examine the lessons that can be learned, within this biofilm paradigm, by the study of problems (e. Read More

Magnetic resonance guided high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation of musculoskeletal tumors.

Curr Orthop Pract 2011 Jul-Aug;22(4):303-308

Department of Radiology, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA.

This article reviews the fundamental principles and clinical experimental uses of magnetic resonance guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MRgHIFU) ablation of musculoskeletal tumors. MRgHIFU is a noninvasive treatment modality that takes advantage of the ability of magnetic resonance to measure tissue temperature and uses this technology to guide high-intensity focused ultrasound waves to a specific focus within the human body that results in heat generation and complete thermal necrosis of the targeted tissue. Adjacent normal tissues are spared because of the accurate delivery of thermal energy, as well as, local blood perfusion that provides a cooling effect. Read More

Biomechanical strain analysis of the proximal femur following retrograde intramedullary nailing.

Curr Orthop Pract 2010 Aug;21(4):385-389

Denver Health / University of Colorado, Denver, Colorado.

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of proximal retrograde intramedullary nail position on proximal femoral strain, since stress risers occurring at the end of an implant can increase fracture risk. METHODS: Proximal femoral strains during axial and torsional loading were measured in composite Sawbone femurs after placement of retrograde intramedullary nails that ended at three different locations (2 cm proximal, 4 cm distal, and at the level of the lesser trochanter). RESULTS: No statistically significant difference was found between the axial or torsional strain observed in the intact femur and that seen after placement of a retrograde femoral nail ending at any of the three positions.

Authors:
Said A Ibrahim

Curr Orthop Pract 2010 Mar;21(2):126-131

Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion, Philadelphia VA Medical Center; Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA.

Elective knee and hip joint replacements are cost-effective treatment options in the management of end-stage knee and hip osteoarthritis. Yet there are marked racial disparities in the utilization of this treatment even though the prevalence of knee and hip osteoarthritis does not vary greatly by race or ethnicity. This article briefly reviews the rationale for understanding this disparity, the evidence-base that supports the existence of racial or ethnic disparity as well as some known potential explanations.
