Treatment of Knee Osteochondral Fractures.

Healthcare (Basel) 2022 Jun 8;10(6). Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Morphological Sciences, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, RO-020021 Bucharest, Romania.

Osteochondral lesions (OCLs) that are frequently encountered in skeletally immature and adult patients are more common than once thought, and their incidence rate is rising. These lesions can appear in many synovial joints of the body, such as the shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle, occurring most often in the knee. The term osteochondral lesion includes a vast spectrum of pathologies such as osteochondritis dissecans, osteochondral defects, osteochondral fractures, and osteonecrosis of the subchondral bone.

Terrible triad injury of the elbow: A PROCESS-compliant surgical case series from Eastern Morocco.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2022 Jun 4;78:103914. Epub 2022 Jun 4.

Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics, Mohammed VI University Hospital, Oujda, Morocco.

Introduction: The terrible triad of the elbow (TTE) is a lesion associating a dislocation of the elbow, a fracture of the radial head, and a fracture of the coronoid process, with a high potential of complication. The treatment is based on the restoration of bone lesions and external capsular ligament repair. The systematic repair of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) is still debated in the literature.

Trans-fracture approach for ORIF of coronal shear fractures of the distal humerus.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany.

Introduction: Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of comminuted coronal shear fractures of the distal humerus is challenging. When a concomitant lateral condyle fracture is present, it may be used for a trans-fracture approach to facilitate exposure and fracture reduction. This study aimed to investigate the frequency of lateral condyle fractures in coronal shear fractures of the distal humerus and analyze fracture reduction, fracture union and clinical results following ORIF through a trans-fracture approach.

Long-stemmed Hemiarthroplasty with Cerclage Wiring for the Treatment of Split-Head Fractures of the Proximal Humerus with Metaphyseal Extension: A Report of 2 Cases.

J Shoulder Elb Arthroplast 2022 14;6:24715492221108285. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Shoulder & Elbow Surgery, Patras University Hospital, Rio-Patras, Greece.

Introduction: Complex fractures of the proximal humerus with splitting-head component and metaphyseal propagation are very rare injuries that are difficult to treat. Preservation of the humeral head is always considered except in cases with severe comminution and compromised vascularity where shoulder hemiarthroplasty is an alternative option.

Case Report: We present two male patients, 57- and 62-years-old who sustained such a complex proximal humeral fracture after a high-energy injury. Read More

Safety and Short-Term Outcomes of Anatomic versus Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty in an Ambulatory Surgery Center.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2022 Jun 16. Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, University of Tennessee - Campbell Clinic, Memphis, TN, USA.

Background: A paucity of literature exists comparing outcomes of outpatient anatomic (aTSA) and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA). This study was performed to compare early outcomes between the two procedures in a free-standing ambulatory surgery center (ASC) and to determine if the addition of preoperative interscalene nerve blockade (ISNB) with peri-articular liposomal bupivacaine injection (PAI) in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) would improve outcomes over PAI alone.

Methods: Medical charts of all patients undergoing outpatient primary aTSA or rTSA at two ASCs from 2012 to 2020 were reviewed. Read More

Loop Anchor Tension Band Fixation for Olecranon Fractures and Chevron Olecranon Osteotomy.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2022 May 5. Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of Orthopaedics, Ditmanson Medical Foundation Chia-Yi Christian Hospital.

Although tension band wiring is effective for treating olecranon fractures, it is associated with a high reoperation rate because of hardware-related problems. The loop anchor tension band technique is a novel modification of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO)-modified tension band wiring technique. This technique is suitable for treating olecranon fractures without severe comminution and olecranon osteotomy. Read More

Arthroscopically Assisted Stabilization of Chronic Acromioclavicular Joint Instability.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2021 Oct-Dec;11(4). Epub 2021 Nov 8.

Department of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Schulthess Clinic, Zurich, Switzerland.

This video article demonstrates biological and synthetic acromioclavicular (AC) and coracoclavicular stabilization with use of a hamstring tendon graft and a low-profile TightRope implant (Arthrex). The low-profile TightRope reduces soft-tissue irritation due to knot stacks. The tendon graft is wrapped around the clavicle and the coracoid to avoid weakening of the osseous structures as a result of clavicular and coracoidal tunnel placement. Read More

Isolated trochlea osteochondral fracture of the distal humerus in a 6-year-old patient surgically fixed using biodegradable pins: A case study with over 3 years of follow-up.

Trauma Case Rep 2022 Aug 1;40:100666. Epub 2022 Jun 1.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Trauma Center, Saga-ken Medical Centre Koseikan, Saga, Japan.

Isolated humeral trochlea fracture, particularly in skeletally immature children, is extremely rare. The exact mechanism of this injury remains unknown because the humeral trochlea is embraced within the olecranon fossa without any muscular or ligamentous attachment. We report the treatment of a 6-year-old boy who sustained an isolated trochlea osteochondral fracture when he fell with his elbow in a flexed position while skateboarding. Read More

Inlay versus Onlay Humeral Design for Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2022 Jun 4. Epub 2022 Jun 4.

Division of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, NYU Langone Health, New York, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Since the introduction of the Grammont style reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA), the humeral stem design has been modified with improved clinical outcomes. Two distinct humeral designs have been utilized extensively: the inlay where the humeral tray is seated within the metaphysis and the onlay design where the humerus tray sits on the metaphysis at the level of the humeral neck cut. The purpose of this systematic review is to determine if there are differences in clinical outcomes and complication rates between these designs. Read More

Total Elbow Arthroplasty and Antegrade Posterior Interosseous Flap for Infected Posttraumatic Arthritis with an Active Fistula. A Rationale for Comprehensive Treatment. Case Report.

J Shoulder Elb Arthroplast 2022 29;6:24715492221090745. Epub 2022 Mar 29.

Orthopedic Surgeon, Orthopedic Surgery Department. Centro Médico ABC.

The indication for total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) for primary and posttraumatic elbow arthritis has increased, however, its indication after infection remains elusive. Wound closure about the elbow increases the challenge of treating a previously infected elbow, often necessitating soft tissue coverage with local or regional flaps. We present a 75-year-old male patient with an elbow infection following a failed complex intraarticular fracture open reduction and internal fixation of the distal humerus. Read More

One incision-two windows approach for fixation of multifragmentary coronoid process fracture of the ulna: A case report.

Trauma Case Rep 2022 Aug 26;40:100655. Epub 2022 May 26.

Department of Orthopaedic Trauma Center, Shonan Kamakura General Hospital, 1370-1 Okamoto, Kamakura-shi, Kanagawa, Japan.

Since the range of access of each surgical approach around the elbow has limitations, it is difficult to treat all types of fractures using only one approach. In the case reported herein, anterior and medial fragments of the comminuted ulnar coronoid process fracture were treated by preparing two access routes through one skin incision and effectively performing the buttress plating of each fragment. The subject was a 27-year-old female who sustained a fracture of the coronoid process of the right ulna by falling during snowboarding. Read More
