Military Service Members with Major Lower Extremity Fractures Return to Running with a Passive-dynamic Ankle-foot Orthosis: Comparison with a Normative Population.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 Jun 24. Epub 2021 Jun 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego, CA, USA.

Background: Lower extremity fractures represent a high percentage of reported injuries in the United States military and can devastate a service member's career. A passive dynamic ankle-foot orthosis (PD-AFO) with a specialized rehabilitation program was initially designed to treat military service members after complex battlefield lower extremity injuries, returning a select group of motivated individuals back to running. For high-demand users of the PD-AFO, the spatiotemporal gait parameters, agility, and quality of life is not fully understood with respect to uninjured runners. Read More

Relationships Between Spinal Alignment and Muscle Mass in Osteoporosis Patients Over 75 Years of Age Who Were Independent and Maintained Their Activities of Daily Living.

Cureus 2021 May 19;13(5):e15130. Epub 2021 May 19.

Orthopaedic Surgery, Kitasato University, Sagamihara, JPN.

Introduction Elderly patients with osteoporosis often complain of back pain associated with pathological vertebral fractures caused by abnormal spinal alignment. Few reports evaluate the relationships among muscle mass, bone mineral density (BMD), sagittal spinal alignment, and low back pain. We hypothesized that decreasing muscle mass in elderly patients with osteoporosis could cause spinal alignment abnormalities. Read More

A novel nomogram for the delayed transperineal anastomotic urethroplasty based on relative position between the proximal urethra and the pubic ramus in pelvic fracture injury patients: a retrospective analysis.

World J Urol 2021 Jun 19. Epub 2021 Jun 19.

Department of Urology, Institute of Urology (Laboratory of Reconstructive Urology), West China Hospital, Sichuan University, No. 37 Guoxue Alley, Wuhou District, Chengdu, Sichuan, People's Republic of China.

Zhongguo Xiu Fu Chong Jian Wai Ke Za Zhi 2021 Jun;35(6):684-689

Department of Orthopedics, Shanxi Bethune Hospital, Taiyuan Shanxi, 030032, P.R.China.

Objective: To find the ideal position of lag screw internal fixation in the anterior column of acetabulum by digital technology, and measure its related parameters, so as to improve the accuracy of lag screw implantation.

Methods: The CT scan data of 266 semi-pelvic raw in 133 cases (78 males and 55 females, aged 18-65 years old with an average age of 42 years) were collected between January 2019 and January 2020 to compose three-dimensional models. According to the relationship between the peripheral bone cortex of the anatomical channel and the lag screw, a new standard for the ideal position of lag screw fixation in the anterior column of acetabulum was proposed to simulate the implantation of the screw.

Factors Affecting Periprosthetic Bone Loss after Hip Arthroplasty.

Hip Pelvis 2021 Jun 4;33(2):53-61. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Daejeon St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Daejeon, Korea.

Periprosthetic bone loss may lead to major complications in hip arthroplasty, including aseptic loosening, implant migration, and even periprosthetic fracture. Such a complication leads to revision surgeries, which are expensive, technically demanding, and result in a low satisfaction rate. Therefore, a study was conducted of the factors affecting the periprosthetic bone loss around the stem that caused these complications. Read More

The Effect of Teriparatide on the Hip: A Literature Review.

Hip Pelvis 2021 Jun 4;33(2):45-52. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Konyang University College of Medicine, Daejeon, Korea.

Teriparatide (TPTD) is a bone-forming agent used to treat postmenopausal osteoporosis. Since hip fractures are related to higher morbidity and mortality rates than other fractures, efficacious osteoporosis drugs for the hip are critical. We reviewed research articles reporting the efficacy of TPTD in terms of bone mineral density (BMD), fractures prevention, changes in the outer diameter, cortical thickness and porosity, post-operative periprosthetic BMD loss, and healing of typical and atypical fractures of the hip.

Higher altitude leads to increased risk of venous thromboembolism after acetabular and pelvic ring injury.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2021 Aug 26;19:192-195. Epub 2021 May 26.

Emory University, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, 59 Executive Park South, Suite 200, Atlanta, GA 30324, USA.

Introduction: There is a high post-operative incidence of venous thromboembolisms (VTEs), specifically deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), in pelvic ring and acetabular fractures, and identification of risk factors for VTEs is crucial to decrease this highly morbid complication. High altitudes have a known physiological effect on the body that may predispose patients to developing VTEs in the postoperative period. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between pelvic ring and acetabular fractures occurring at high altitudes and the development of postoperative VTEs. Read More
