Congenital orthopaedic limp deformities in Corpus Hippocraticum.

Int Orthop 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

History of Medicine, Anatomy Department, School of Medicine, Democritus University of Thrace, Alexandroupolis, Greece.

During the fifth century BC in ancient Greece during the eve of orthopaedics, the Hippocratic School of Medicine diagnosed a series of congenital limb deformities. Congenital dislocation of the arm, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, tarsotibial joint, apex leg, as well as talipes valgus (clubfoot), congenital clavicle fractures, and thumb malfunction were all discussed by Hippocrates and his followers. Ancient Greek medico-philosophers, fond of a "perfect" human body, proposed an immediate non-interventional approach, while archaic orthotics and specialized footwear were suggested. Read More

Prevention and management of early treatment failures in elbow injuries.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 Feb 24;105(1S):S75-S87. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Chirurgie orthopédique et traumatologique, CHU Charles-Nicolle, 1, rue de Germont, 76031 Rouen, France.

The appropriate management of early treatment failures in patients with elbow injuries requires the identification of the cause of failure. In this work, six types of elbow injury are considered: (i) identification of early failed reduction of a dislocation or fracture-dislocation of the elbow should lead to a repeat reduction procedure, testing for elbow instability, and ligament repair, followed by the use of a hinged external fixator to allow early mobilisation. Differentiating an isolated dislocation from a dislocation combined with a fracture of the coracoid process is crucial. Read More

Combined Ipsilateral Humeral Shaft and Galeazzi Fractures Creating a Floating Elbow Variant.

Case Rep Orthop 2018 8;2018:7430297. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, USA.

"Floating elbow" injuries of the arm traditionally represent a combination of humeral shaft and forearm fractures which require anatomic rigid open reduction and internal fixation of all fractures to allow for early range of motion exercises of the elbow. There are published variants of the floating elbow injury which include ipsilateral diaphyseal humeral fracture, proximal ulna fracture with proximal radioulnar joint disruption, and ipsilateral diaphyseal humeral fracture with elbow dislocation and both bones forearm fracture. We present the case of a 21-year-old woman whose left arm became caught between the side of a waterslide and adjacent rocks at a park. Read More

Traumatic Divergent Elbow Dislocation with Associated Forearm Amputation in an Adult: A Case Report.

JBJS Case Connect 2018 Oct-Dec;8(4):e92-5

Western Orthopaedics, Denver, Colorado.

Case: A 49-year-old right-hand-dominant man sustained an auger-related injury that resulted in open dislocation at the left wrist and palm, with complete amputation of the distal aspect of the forearm and the hand. The injury at the elbow included instability with an ulnar coronoid fracture, posterior dislocation of the ulna, and posterolateral dislocation of the radius. To restore stability of the forearm stump and elbow, we performed a complete resection of the radius, open reduction and internal fixation of the coronoid tip, a repair of the lateral collateral ligament, and transfer of the distal biceps tendon to the coronoid.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Flexor Tendon Rupture in the Wrist with Asymptomatic Scapholunate Advanced Collapse: A Case Report.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Dec;23(4):589-592

1 Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Hokkaido Saiseikai Otaru Hospital, Otaru, Japan.

We experienced a rare case of carpal tunnel syndrome and rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon to the index finger with a scapholunate advanced collapse wrist. We speculated that the lunate that had extruded into the carpal tunnel compressed the median nerve and caused wear of the flexor tendon following neglected perilunate subluxation. Carpal tunnel release, opponensplasty by palmaris longus tendon transfer, and a bridge graft by a half-slip of the flexor carpi radialis tendon resulted in recovery of pinch function and improvement in numbness of the hand.

Tennis Players and Water Polo Athletes Now Have Something in Common to Talk About: MRI Findings of Extensor Carpi Ulnaris Chronic Subsheath Injury.

Cureus 2018 Apr 16;10(4):e2489. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Radiology, Yale New Haven Health at Bridgeport Hospital, Bridgeport, USA.

Pathologies of the extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) tendon are often due to de Quervain's tenosynovitis of the first dorsal compartment among the wrist tendon pathologies. A common cause for tendinitis and tenosynovitis of the ECU tendon is its dislocation. ECU dislocation is unique among all wrist tendon injuries due to its typical location within a fibro-osseous tunnel bordered by a fibrous sheath, which is termed as the subsheath. Read More

Five-decade-delayed closed flexor tendon rupture due to Galeazzi dislocation fracture associated with Behçet syndrome: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2018 29;48:87-91. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Orthopedics, Graduate School of Medical Science, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, 465 Kajii-cho, Kawaramachi-Hirokoji, Kamigyo-ku, 602-8566, Kyoto, Japan.

Introduction: Closed flexor tendon rupture after a malunited distal radius fracture is rare and usually becomes apparent early after the fracture. Most cases are accompanied by a severe distal radio-ulnar joint capsule injury, wherein bone protrusion (as a spur) directly stresses the tendons. We experienced a nonspecific flexor tendon rupture associated with an old fracture and the presence of collagen disease. Read More
