Autologous replacement of the head of the radius-proximal fibula versus second metatarsal base: an anatomic feasibility study.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2022 May 9. Epub 2022 May 9.

Center for Anatomy and Cell Biology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Introduction: This study investigated the anatomic feasibility of a new surgical therapy option for radial head arthrosis using an autologous vascularized bone graft of the second metatarsal and proximal fibula to recreate the proximal radiohumeral joint.

Materials And Methods: Upper and lower extremities of eleven body donors were evaluated using CT prior to anatomic dissection. Several distinct anatomic parameters were measured on the ipsi- and contralateral radial and fibular head and the second metatarsal base: bone diameter, articular surface diameter, head height, metaphyseal (neck) diameter, articular surface radius, total articular surface area, and angulation of the articular surfaces (facet).

Surgical Considerations for the Acute and Chronic Charcot Neuroarthropathy of the Foot and Ankle.

Clin Podiatr Med Surg 2022 Apr;39(2):331-341

Division of Podiatric Surgery, LVPG Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, Lehigh Valley Health Network, 250 South Cedar Crest Boulevard, Suite 110, Allentown, PA 18103, USA; Penn State College of Medicine, 500 University Drive, Hershey, PA 17033, USA.

Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN) of the foot/ankle is a devastating complication that can occur in neuropathic patients. It is a progressive and destructive process that is characterized by acute fractures, dislocations, and joint destruction that will lead to foot and/or ankle deformities. Early diagnosis is imperative, and early treatment may be advantageous, but the condition is not reversible. Read More

Identification of human balance control responses to visual inputs using virtual reality.

J Neurophysiol 2022 Apr 30;127(4):1159-1170. Epub 2022 Mar 30.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Human upright balance is maintained through feedback mechanisms that use a variety of sensory modalities. Vision senses information about the position and velocity of the visual surround motion to improve balance by reducing the sway evoked by external disturbances. This study characterized the effects of visual information on human anterior-posterior body sway in upright stance by presenting perturbations through a virtual reality system. Read More

Katedra i Klinika Ortopedii i Traumatologii Narządu Ruchu Śląskiego Unierwsytetu Medycznego w Katowicach, Polska / Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Traumatology, Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland.

Subtalar dislocation is a very rare injury that accounts for just approximately 1% of traumatic dislocations. Stan-dard treatment in acute subtalar dislocations is immediate closed reduction and cast immobilization. Early reduction is of key importance and allows avoiding further damage to soft tissues, nerves and blood vessels. Read More

Case Report: Bosworth Fracture-Dislocation managed by Closed Reduction and Conservative Treatment.

Front Surg 2021 27;8:788575. Epub 2022 Jan 27.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Suzhou TCM Hospital Affiliated to Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, Suzhou, China.

Bosworth fracture-dislocation is a rare type of ankle injury, which in the typical radiologic are overlap of distal tibia and fibula in the anteroposterior view, posterior subluxation of the talus and syndesmosis dissociation in the lateral view, while in the CT scan, the fibula was displaced behind the posterior edge of the fibular notch (incisura tibiae), locked between the distal tibia and the displaced posterior malleolus fragment. Treatment can be challenging owing to the ignorance or failure of the initial reduction, resulting in an irreducible tibiotalar joint and tibiofibular syndesmosis reduction. To treat this complicated injury, emergent open surgery is always recommended for the first stage reduction to prevent adverse events. Read More

Approximately 41% of knees have a looser gap in full extension than in 20° flexion after Oxford unicompartmental arthroplasty.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2022 Jan 18. Epub 2022 Jan 18.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Joint Surgery Centre, Takatsuki General Hospital, 1-3-13, Kosobe-cho, Takatsuki, Osaka, 569-1192, Japan.

Introduction: In Oxford unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (OUKA), the flexion and extension gaps should be adjusted to prevent mobile-bearing dislocation. The extension gap is recommended to be evaluated in the 20° flexion position to avoid underestimation due to tension of the posterior capsule. However, we have become aware of a looser gap in full extension than in 20° flexion in some instances. Read More
