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.
