Autologous stem cell implantation with core decompression for avascular necrosis of the femoral head using a new device.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK.

Introduction: Autologous stem cell progenitor implantation into necrotic lesions of the femoral head has previously been described as a potential treatment for avascular necrosis (AVN), on the basis that there is a reduced number of functioning stem cells in the marrow within the necrotic segment. We present a case series of patients with AVN that underwent core decompression with autologous stem cell implantation using a new device.

Methods: The records and imaging of patients with AVN of the femoral head treated by a single surgeon were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

Core Decompression with Non Vascularized Fibular Graft as Modern Surgical Treatment of Early Hip Avascular Necrosis.

Mymensingh Med J 2021 Apr;30(2):323-328

Dr Mohammad Tariqul Alam, Assistant Professor, Paediatric Orthopaedics, Mymensingh Medical College (MMC), Mymensingh, Bangladesh; E-mail:

Cellular death of bone due to impairment of the blood supply leading to collapse resulting in pain, and loss of joint function is known as avascular necrosis (AVN). The head of femur is the most common bone affected by avascular necrosis followed by talus and scaphoid. We evaluate the results of core decompression with non-vascularized fibular graft in avascular necrosis of femoral head. Read More

T1ρ and T2 mapping detect acute ischemic injury in a piglet model of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease.

J Orthop Res 2021 Mar 31. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Center for Excellence in Hip, Scottish Rite for Children, Dallas, Texas, USA.

This study investigated the sensitivity of T1ρ and T2 relaxation time mapping to detect acute ischemic injury to the secondary ossification center (SOC) and epiphyseal cartilage of the femoral head in a piglet model of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease. Six piglets underwent surgery to induce global right femoral head ischemia and were euthanized 48 h later. Fresh operated and contralateral-control femoral heads were imaged ex vivo with T1, T2, and T1ρ mapping using a 9. Read More

MRI risk factors for development of avascular necrosis after closed reduction of developmental dysplasia of the hip: Predictive value of contrast-enhanced MRI.

PLoS One 2021 18;16(3):e0248701. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify imaging risk factors on contrast-enhanced hip MRI after closed reduction of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) that could predict future development of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head.

Materials And Methods: Fifty-eight infants (F: M = 53: 5, aged 3-18 months) who underwent immediate postoperative contrast-enhanced hip MRI after closed reduction of DDH were included in this study. Quality of reduction (concentric vs eccentric reduction with or without obstacles), abduction angle of the hip, presence of ossific nucleus, and pattern of contrast enhancement of the femoral head were retrospectively evaluated on MRI.

Hip Injuries in the Adolescent Athlete.

Clin Sports Med 2021 Apr 5;40(2):385-398. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

Department of Orthopaedics, San Antonio Military Medical Center, 3851 Roger Brooke Drive, Fort Sam Houston, TX 78234, USA. Electronic address:

This article provides concise and up-to-date information on the most common hip pathologies that affect adolescent athletes. We cover the evaluation and treatment of avulsion injuries, stress fractures, slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), femoroacetabular impingement, developmental dysplasia of the hip, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, and coxa saltans focusing on minimizing advanced imaging and using conservative therapy when applicable. Although this is not an all-encompassing list of disorders, it is key to understand these hip pathologies because these injuries occur commonly and can also have detrimental complications if not diagnosed and addressed early, especially SCFE and femoral neck stress fractures.

Spontaneous bone infarction of the distal femur in a patient with Cushing's disease: a case report.

Bone Rep 2021 Jun 18;14:100756. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Avascular necrosis of the femoral head is a well-known complication of treatment with high dosage glucocorticoids and has been described in a few patients with Cushing's syndrome. In this case report, we describe the, to our knowledge, first case of a patient with endogenous Cushing's syndrome with a bone infarction located in the distal femur. In patients with Cushing's syndrome and bone pain, the diagnosis of bone infarction should be considered as it can occur as a rare complication of hypercortisolism. Read More

Leeds Children's Hospital, Leeds, UK.

Aims: Osteonecrosis (ON) can cause considerable morbidity in young people who undergo treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). The aims of this study were to determine the operations undertaken for ON in this population in the UK, along with the timing of these operations and any sequential procedures that are used in different joints. We also explored the outcomes of those patients treated by core decompression (CD), and compared this with conservative management, in both the pre- or post-collapse stages of ON. Read More

Ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fracture in children: Two case reports.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jan;100(4):e23616

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lishui Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, The Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Lishui Municipal Central Hospital, Lishui, Zhejiang, People's Republic of China.

Rationale: Pediatric femoral shaft combined with ipsilateral femoral neck fractures are very rare but challenging injuries fraught with the development of avascular necrosis, coxa vara, and leg length discrepancy. Majority of the previous reports indicated the neck femur fracture was fixed with cannulated screws or/and pins, femoral shaft fracture was stabilized with a plate and screws. However, we used cannulated screws combined with elastic stable intramedullary nails to minimally invasive procedures treat this type of injury and achieved good follow-up results. Read More

Hybrid Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography/Computed Tomography Bone Scan for Diagnosis Of Avascular Necrosis of Femoral Head.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2021 12;11. Epub 2021 Jan 12.

Department of Radiology, Princess Margaret Hospital, Hong Kong.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a commonly used imaging modality to detect early avascular necrosis (AVN). When MRI is inconclusive, bone scan is helpful in detecting AVN during early phase of the disease. As newer nuclear medicine equipment, such as single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) and positron emission tomography, are emerging in medical science, the role of these imaging modalities in AVN of femoral head is re-evaluated.

JBJS Case Connect 2020 12 24;10(4):e20.00104. Epub 2020 Dec 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, KU-Wichita, Wichita, Kansas.

Case: We describe a case of posterior hip dislocation in a 13-year-old boy after a contact football injury with attempted closed reduction resulting in complete separation of the epiphysis from the femoral neck metaphysis with associated femoral head fracture and posterior dislocation of the femoral head. Treatment was emergently performed with a greater trochanteric osteotomy, open reduction internal fixation using cannulated screws, and additional small diameter drill holes in the femoral head to promote blood flow. The patient did well postoperatively and at over 4 years follow-up had no evidence of avascular necrosis and returned to full athletics participation. Read More
