Murine patellar tendon transplantation requires transosseous cerclage augmentation - development of a transplantation model for investigation of systemic and local drivers to healing.

J Orthop Surg Res 2019 Dec 2;14(1):410. Epub 2019 Dec 2.

Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.

Background: Tendon injuries are common musculoskeletal injuries that heal with scar tissue formation, often achieving reduced biomechanical and functional properties. The murine patellar tendon is a research tool that holds potential for investigating tendon healing and can be useful for exploring therapeutic strategies. Since healing is a complex process that results from the collaboration between the systemic and local tissue environment, a murine tendon transplantation model that can be applied to transgenic mice and genetic mutants would allow isolation of systemic versus local tendon factors in driving effective tendon healing.

Gliding Tissue Reconstruction Using a Dorsal Digital Adipofascial Flap in Complex Extensor Injury.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 03;84(3):283-287

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, School of Medicine, Shinshu University, Nagano, Japan.

Background: Postoperative scar adhesions between tendons and phalanx bones cause persistent disability in complex injuries involving tendons and bones of the hand. Although gliding tissue reconstruction is effective in preventing peritendinous adhesion formation and a dorsal digital adipofascial flap is a reliable method to prevent scar adhesion between tendon and bone after extensor tendon repair, no comparative clinical reports exist. This study aimed to determine the usefulness of a gliding tissue reconstruction method by comparing postoperative range of motion between patients who underwent gliding tissue reconstruction and those who did not.

Efficient decellularization of equine tendon with preserved biomechanical properties and cytocompatibility for human tendon surgery indications.

Artif Organs 2020 Apr 14;44(4):E161-E171. Epub 2019 Nov 14.

Unit of Regenerative Therapy, Service of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, Department of Musculoskeletal Medicine, Lausanne University Hospital, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Chronic and acute tendon injuries are frequent afflictions, for which treatment is often long and unsatisfactory. When facing extended injuries, matrices and scaffolds with sufficient biomechanical properties are required for surgical repair and could additionally serve as supports for cellular therapies to improve healing. In this study, protocols of either commonly used detergents only (SDS 1%, Triton 1%, TBP 1%, and Tween-20 1%) or a combination of freeze/thaw (F/T) cycles with decellularization agents (NaCl 1M, ddH O) were evaluated for the decellularization of horse equine superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) for hand flexor or extensor tendon reconstruction.

Extensor hallucis longus tendon and soft-tissue reconstruction with palmaris longus tendon included in a radial forearm free flap: A case report.

Microsurgery 2020 Mar 12;40(3):391-394. Epub 2019 Oct 12.

C.O.O., Azienda Socio Sanitaria Territoriale Gaetano Pini, Milan, Italy.

Reconstruction of foot structures is challenging because of the need to restore both anatomy and function. Extensor hallucis longus (EHL) excision without reconstruction could result in a flexion deformity of the toe at the interphalangeal joint. In this report, we present a case of the use of a palmaris longus tendon included in a fasciocutaneous radial forearm free flap to reconstruct EHL tendon and soft tissues of the distal foot dorsum.

Tenocytes form a 3-D network and are connected via nanotubes.

J Anat 2020 Jan 30;236(1):165-170. Epub 2019 Sep 30.

VetCore Facility for Research, Vetmeduni Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Cells use different cell adhesion and communication structures to promote tissue development, maintenance of tissue integrity as well as repair and regenerative processes. Another recently discovered way of information exchange is long-distance thin cellular processes called nanotubes (NTs), mainly studied in vitro. Information on the existence and relevance of NTs in vivo is sparse. Read More

A Reconstructive Extensor Tendon Centralization Technique for Sagittal Band Disruption.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2020 Mar;24(1):20-25

Christine M Kleinert Institute for Hand and Microsurgery, Louisville, KY.

Sagittal band injuries may result in extensor digitorum communis (EDC) tendon instability and may require operative treatment for symptomatic loss of extension, pain, and snapping at the metacarpophalangeal joint (MCPJ). Operative methods vary according to the source of donor tissue, as well as the anchor point of attachment. We present a surgical technique that diminishes tension of the repair with MCPJ flexion.

Lateral Epicondylitis Debridement and Repair Using Knotless Suture Anchor.

Arthrosc Tech 2019 Jul 17;8(7):e775-e779. Epub 2019 Jul 17.

Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A.

Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, involves degeneration of the extensor carpi radialis brevis tendon and is often self-limiting, with surgery reserved for recalcitrant cases. Surgical management of tennis elbow consists primarily of either debridement alone or debridement with repair. Surgical repair is often performed using either a suture or a suture anchor. Read More

Acute Triceps Tendon Repair: A Technique Utilizing 3 Curved Tunnels and Proximal Knots.

Arthrosc Tech 2019 Jul 10;8(7):e705-e712. Epub 2019 Jun 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tufts Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

Although triceps tendon tears are less common than other tendon tears, complete ruptures require surgical repair to restore the strength of the extensor mechanism of the elbow. There are several described techniques for repair using both transosseous tunnels and suture anchors. Current techniques often result in large suture knots over the dorsal ulna under thin subcutaneous tissue, which can be irritating for patients. Read More

Traumatic Hallux Varus in Association with Agenesis of the Fibular Sesamoid: A Case Study.

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2019 May;109(3):246-252

Hallux varus is most commonly seen iatrogenically following overaggressive lateral release, removal of the fibular sesamoid, or overaggressive removal of the medial eminence. There are several reported cases of traumatic hallux varus, although this is much less common. We present a case of traumatic hallux varus in a patient who was later found to have bilateral absence of her fibular sesamoids. Read More

FP Essent 2019 Jul;482:23-26

Uniformed Services University Department of Family Medicine, 4301 Jones Bridge Road A1038, Bethesda, MD 20814-4799.

Family physicians commonly treat athletes with simple fractures and other musculoskeletal injuries that require temporary immobilization. Certain fractures (eg, intraarticular, multiple, open, associated with dislocations or tendon injury) typically are managed by orthopedic subspecialists. During the healing process, a custom-molded or prefabricated orthopedic support, known as an orthosis, may be used to support the injured area and prevent reinjury. Read More

Yu-Te Lin

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Sep 24;44(7):667-675. Epub 2019 Jun 24.

1 Department of Plastic Surgery, Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation Center, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital.

Vascularized toe joint transfers to the fingers have been performed for more than four decades, but their outcomes are not comparable with implant arthroplasty. Limited range of motion and extensor deficits of about 30° remain major problems with the constructed joints. We observed that the central extensor tendon of the toe is often attenuated proximally in its course on the dorsum of the proximal interphalangeal joint. Read More

Simultaneous Bilateral Extensor Mechanism Disruptions: More Than Double the Trouble?

J Knee Surg 2019 May 8. Epub 2019 May 8.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York.

Simultaneous bilateral extensor mechanism disruption (BEMD) is a rare condition, for which the relationship between comorbid conditions, complications, and clinical outcomes has not been well defined. We hypothesized that patients with BEMD would have more comorbidities, more repair failures, and worse clinical outcomes compared with patients with unilateral extensor mechanism disruption (UEMD). We performed a retrospective review of all adult patients seen at our institution for either a quadriceps or patellar tendon rupture between 2012 and 2017. Read More

[Repair of the pronator quadratus muscle with a part of the brachioradialis muscle insertion in volar plate fixation of a distal radius fracture].

Oper Orthop Traumatol 2020 Feb 7;32(1):82-86. Epub 2019 May 7.

Unfall‑, Hand- und Ellenbogenchirurgie, Klinik und Poliklinik für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum zu Köln, Köln, Deutschland.

The Problem: Stable pronator quadratus repair following volar plate fixation of distal radius fractures with complete plate coverage is often difficult.

The Solution: Detachment of the pronator quadratus muscle (PQ) with a strong rim of connective tissue consisting of a fibrous portion of the roof of the first extensor compartment and the volar limb of the brachioradialis muscle (BR) insertion; stable suture repair of the PQ with complete coverage of a volar plate after osteosynthesis of a distal radius fracture.

Surgical Technique: Radiopalmar approach between the radial artery and the flexor carpi radialis tendon to the PQ; sharp dissection below the radial artery onto the first extensor compartment, which is opened; retraction of the extensor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis longus tendon; presentation of the BR insertion at the bottom of the first extensor compartment; incision of the BR insertion halfway to proximal and dissection of the volar limb at the transition to the free BR tendon; release of the PQ from the distal radius; after reduction and internal fixation repair of the PQ with complete coverage of the volar locking plate due to slight distal transposition.
