Flexor tendon repair with a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) suture material.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery, University of Erlangen Medical Center, Erlangen, Germany.

Background: There is a consensus that after a flexor tendon repair an aggressive rehabilitation protocol with early active motion can improve functional outcome, provided that the combination of material and suturing technique can meet the higher biomechanic demands. Bearing this in mind we evaluated a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) suture (SERAMON, Serag-Wiessner) as a possible material for flexor tendon repair.

Materials And Methods: 40 flexor tendons were harvested from fresh cadaveric upper extremities. Read More

The anatomic location and importance of the tibialis posterior fascicular bundle at the sciatic nerve bifurcation: report of 3 cases.

J Neurosurg 2018 Dec 21:1-7. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Departments of2Neurosurgery and.

The authors present the cases of 3 patients with severe injuries affecting the peroneal nerve combined with loss of tibialis posterior function (inversion) despite preservation of other tibial nerve function. Loss of tibialis posterior function is problematic, since transfer of the tibialis posterior tendon is arguably the best reconstructive option for foot drop, when available. Analysis of preoperative imaging studies correlated with operative findings and showed that the injuries, while predominantly to the common peroneal nerve, also affected the lateral portion of the tibial nerve/division near the sciatic nerve bifurcation.

Etiology, Evaluation, and Management Options for the Stiff Digit.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

From the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, New York, NY.

The stiff digit may be a consequence of trauma or surgery to the hand and fingers and can markedly affect a patient's level of function and quality of life. Stiffness and contractures may be caused by one or a combination of factors including joint, intrinsic, extensor, and flexor tendon pathology, and the patient's individual biology. A thorough understanding of the anatomy, function, and relationship of these structures on finger joint range of motion is crucial for interpreting physical examination findings and preoperative planning.

Magnetic resonance and radiographic imaging of a case of bilateral bipartite navicular bones in a horse.

Aust Vet J 2018 Nov;96(11):464-469

School of Veterinary Science, University of Queensland, Gatton, Queensland, Australia.

Case Report: We describe the radiographic and magnetic resonance imaging findings associated with a case of bilateral forelimb bipartite navicular disease in a 7-year-old Warmblood gelding used for eventing. In addition to the radiographically evident partitioned navicular bones, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) also detected other concurrent abnormalities occurring within the foot that have not been described before in other cases of navicular bone partition. MRI not only revealed soft tissue lesions of the podotrochlear apparatus, but also allowed for more detailed characterisation of the recently diagnosed osseous navicular bone pathology. Read More

Biomechanical evaluation of two methods of fixation of a flexor hallucis longus tendon graft.

Bone Joint J 2018 09;100-B(9):1175-1181

Department of Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Aims: The traditional transosseus flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon transfer for patients with Achilles tendinopathy requires two incisions to harvest a long tendon graft. The use of a bio-tenodesis screw enables a short graft to be used and is less invasive, but lacks supporting evidence about its biomechanical behaviour. We aimed, in this study, to compare the strength of the traditional transosseus tendon-to-tendon fixation with tendon-to-bone fixation using a tenodesis screw, in cyclical loading and ultimate load testing.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2018 Aug 9;52(4):240-244. Epub 2018 May 9.

a Department of Radiology , Sahlgrenska University Hospital , Mölndal , Sweden.

The morphology of the pretendinous cord in Dupuytren's disease is poorly described in vivo and especially with respect to recurrence after treatment. This prospective study was designed to describe the morphology of Dupuytren's cords by ultrasound and to identify possible correlation between the ultrasonographic characteristics of these cords and the clinical outcomes two years after treatment. Thirty-nine patients with a contracture of at least 20° in the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint, who were scheduled for local treatment by either injectable collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) or percutaneous needle fasciotomy (PNF), were examined by ultrasound.

Tripled semitendinosus with single harvesting is as effective but less invasive compared to standard gracilis-semitendinosus harvesting.

Muscles Ligaments Tendons J 2017 Oct-Dec;7(4):564-572. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Orthopaedics, Traumatology and Rehabilitation, Hospital "Città della Salute e della Scienza", Trauma Center, Turin, Italy.

Introduction: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with pes anserinus tendons has been increasingly used throughout the last years. Although less invasive compared to other autologous grafts, a reduction of internal rotation and flexion strength after gracilis and semitendinosus harvesting has been reported. Harvesting one tendon instead of two from the pes anserinus can reduce the deficit of the knee flexor strength and improve the functional recover without weakening the reconstructed ligament.

Correlations between the equine metacarpophalangeal joint angulation and toe conformation in statics.

Open Vet J 2018 22;8(1):96-103. Epub 2018 Mar 22.

University Hospital for Horses, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Leipzig University, Germany.

The angulation of the equine fetlock determines the load of associated tendons and probably their predisposition for injuries. However, it is questionable how the individual toe conformation and tendon properties interact with the dorsal metacarpophalangeal joint angle (DMPJ). Data are needed for a tangible evaluation of the equine limb conformation for more specific orthopaedic treatment. Read More

Sports Injury-Related Fingers and Thumb Deformity Due to Tendon or Ligament Rupture.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2018 May;131(9):1051-1058

Radiology Associates, LLP, 1814 South Alameda Street, Corpus Christi, TX 78404, USA.

Background: Hand injuries are very common in sports, such as skiing and ball sports. One of the major reasons causing hand and finger deformity is due to ligament and tendon injury. The aim of this study was to investigate if the high-resolution 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can demonstrate the complex anatomy of the fingers and thumb, especially the tendons and ligaments, and provide the accurate diagnosis of clinically important fingers and thumbs deformity due to ligamentous and tendinous injuries during sport activities.

Camptodactyly Treatment for the Lesser Digits.

J Hand Surg Am 2018 Sep 22;43(9):874.e1-874.e4. Epub 2018 Apr 22.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, and Shriners Hospital for Children, St. Louis, MO.

Camptodactyly of the lesser digits is commonly seen in patients with arthrogryposis. The flexed posture of the digit can be functionally limiting and necessitate surgical treatment to improve grasp function. In digits with normal bony anatomy, a lateral stiletto-shaped transposition flap combined with flexor digitorum superficialis tendon release, can improve finger deformity and function. Read More

Absence of flexor carpi radialis identified during volar approach for fixation of distal radius fracture: a case report.

BMC Res Notes 2018 Apr 11;11(1):240. Epub 2018 Apr 11.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Graduate School of Medicine, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, 060-8638, Japan.

Background: Volar locking plate fixation of distal radius fractures is commonly performed because of its good clinical outcomes. The flexor carpi radialis (FCR) approach is one of the most popular approaches to dissecting the volar side of the distal radius because of its simplicity and safety. We describe an extremely rare case of an absent FCR identified during a volar approach for fixation of a distal radius fracture. Read More
