Clinical application of femoral derotation osteotomy combined with medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction for patellar dislocation with excessive femoral internal torsion.

Asian J Surg 2021 Apr 23. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery the Affiliated Hospital of Southwest Medical University Luzhou, China. Electronic address:

Recurrent patellar dislocation (RPD) is multifactorial disease, and excessive femoral internal torsion has been considered as an important risk factor for recurrence of patellar dislocation and graft failure after surgery 1 . Satisfactory clinical outcomes depend on correcting of the pathologic abnormalities around the patellofemoral joint and torsional deformity of the lower extremity. At present, conventional isolated medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction without addressing excessive femoral internal torsion may lead to MPFL graft failure 2,3 , because increased femoral internal torsion can significantly increase a persistently lateralizing force on the patella 4 .

Hallux Valgus With Second Brachymetatarsia Discovered Accidentally: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Mar 18. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Graduate School of Medicine, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan.

Hallux valgus deformity is one of the most common foot and ankle diseases, while brachymetatarsia is a rare foot anomaly with pathological shortening of a metatarsal bone. We present a case of hallux valgus deformity possibly due to second brachymetatarsia. As the hallux valgus was associated with dorsal dislocation of the second toe that made it difficult to evaluate the length of the second toe, the patient was unaware of the second metatarsal shortening until the lengths of the toes compared by manual reposition of the second MTP joint.

Adding a First Metatarsal Pin to An Ankle Tubular External Fixator Does Not Reduce the Incidence of Early Reduction Loss.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Mar 6. Epub 2021 Mar 6.

Foot and Ankle Surgeon, Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

External fixation with a bilateral frame configuration (delta frame, DF) is a routine approach for treating ankle fractures and dislocations with severe soft tissue damage. The purpose of this study was to evaluate to what extent adding a first metatarsal fixation contributes to the stability of the fixation as evidenced by reduced frequency of early loss of reduction. A retrospective study was performed to compare the rate of early reduction loss in patients treated with a bilateral frame external fixation as part of a 2-stage treatment protocol for periarticular ankle fractures, in a level one trauma center between 2006 and 2016.

[Minimally invasive fixation of distal fibular fractures with intramedullary nailing].

Oper Orthop Traumatol 2021 Apr 16;33(2):104-111. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

UniversitätsCentrum für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus, Fetscherstr. 74, 01307, Dresden, Deutschland.

Objective: Minimally invasive osteosynthesis of distal fibula fractures serves as a biomechanically stable and soft-tissue-friendly fixation method in the case of an unstable fracture, poor bone quality, and/or critical soft tissue conditions with restoration of the length, axis and rotation of the distal fibula as well as stabilization of the ankle mortise. The goal is to reduce and stabilize the distal fibular fracture in a quick and stable manner that protects the soft tissues in ankle fractures.

Indications: Unstable malleolar fractures and fracture dislocations; fibular fractures in combination with distal tibia fractures; critical soft tissue conditions around the ankle. Read More

Current Concepts Review: Common Peroneal Nerve Palsy After Knee Dislocations.

Foot Ankle Int 2021 Feb 25:1071100721995421. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University, St Louis, MO, USA.

Dislocation of the native knee represents a challenging injury, further complicated by the high rate of concurrent injury to the common peroneal nerve (CPN). Initial management of this injury requires a thorough neurovascular examination, given the prevalence of popliteal artery injury and limb-threatening ischemia. Further management of a knee dislocation with associated CPN palsy requires coordinated care involving the sports surgeon for ligamentous knee reconstruction and the peripheral nerve surgeon for staged or concurrent peroneal nerve decompression and/or reconstruction.

Deep Inferior Epigastric Flap Combined Bilateral-Anterolateral Thigh Flap for the Coverage of Both Lower Extremity Soft-Tissue Defect: A Case Report and a Literature Review.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2021 12;14:153-161. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Department of Hand Surgery, China-Japan Union Hospital of Jilin University, Changchun, 130033, People's Republic of China.

Background/purpose: Anterolateral thigh perforator (ALTP) flap and deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap have been advantageous over traditional myocutaneous flaps as they preserve the integrity of donor site muscles and minimize the damage and complication to donor site structures. Here, we reported the efficacy of free ALTP and DIEP in the repair of large skin area and soft tissue defects on both lower limbs after trauma.

Case Report: A 19-year-old female traffic accident victim presented with multiple open bilateral fractures to the lower extremities with joint dislocation, massive skin and soft tissue defects, and multiple soft tissue contusion. Read More
