Congenital orthopaedic limp deformities in Corpus Hippocraticum.

Int Orthop 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

History of Medicine, Anatomy Department, School of Medicine, Democritus University of Thrace, Alexandroupolis, Greece.

During the fifth century BC in ancient Greece during the eve of orthopaedics, the Hippocratic School of Medicine diagnosed a series of congenital limb deformities. Congenital dislocation of the arm, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, tarsotibial joint, apex leg, as well as talipes valgus (clubfoot), congenital clavicle fractures, and thumb malfunction were all discussed by Hippocrates and his followers. Ancient Greek medico-philosophers, fond of a "perfect" human body, proposed an immediate non-interventional approach, while archaic orthotics and specialized footwear were suggested. Read More

Int Orthop 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Hôpital Henri Mondor, 94010, Creteil, France.

Purpose: After Glisson's description of rickets, it took two centuries to realize that rickets was due to the absence of antirachitic nutrients in the diet or lack exposure of the skin to ultraviolet rays. This bone disease caused by vitamin D deficiency was one of the most common diseases of children 100 years ago. This paper explores how the definition, diagnosis, and treatment of rickets shifted in the first decades of the twentieth century. Read More

A comparative study about the incidence of dislocation and peri-prosthetic fracture between dual mobility versus standard cups after primary total hip arthroplasty.

Int Orthop 2019 Jan 5. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Hospices Civils de Lyon, Centre Hospitalier Lyon Sud, Service de Chirurgie Orthopédique et Traumatologique, 165 Chemin du Grand Revoyet, 69495, Pierre Benite Cedex, France.

Purpose: Dislocation and peri-prosthetic fracture (PPF) are major reasons for revision THA (total hip arthroplasty). The main advantage of dual mobility (DM) cups is to minimize the incidence of dislocation compared to single mobility (SM) cups. We hypothesized that the use of DM would lead to an increased risk of PPF because of its greater stability. Read More

Functional impairment after successful surgical reconstruction for proximal hamstring avulsion.

Int Orthop 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Orthopaedics, Sportklinik Stuttgart GmbH, Taubenheimstraße 8, 70372, Stuttgart, Germany.

Purpose: Surgical refixation procedures after hamstring avulsion injuries show satisfying to excellent outcome results. However, for post-operative evaluation so far, used outcome scores were partially not injury-specific, heterogeneous, difficult to compare, and possibly overestimated due to ceiling effects. A new injury-specific assessment tool has recently been published, potentially depicting more realistic outcome results. Read More

Int Orthop 2018 Dec 15. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

, Rennes, France.

Background: Cementless femoral stems are currently used in revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) with the surgeon choosing between various fixation modes. The outcomes are good in the medium term; however, some failures have been attributed to technical errors during implantation. When the decision has been made to use a press-fit implant, the impact of the surgeon's technique on the functional outcomes have not been explored in-depth. Read More

Size of ischial fibro-ostosis is associated with heterotopic ossification after total hip arthroplasty.

Int Orthop 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery, University of Heidelberg, Schlierbacher Landstraße 200a, 69118, Heidelberg, Germany.

Purpose: The hypothesis of the present study was that degenerative fibro-ostosis (FO) of the ischial hamstring tendon insertion is a risk factor for heterotopic ossification (HO) following THA.

Methods: We followed 103 consecutive patients (43 males, 60 females, mean age 61 years) who underwent unilateral cementless THA for primary hip osteoarthritis and investigated the incidence of HO within the first 12 months after surgery. On pre-operative radiographs, a standardized evaluation for FO of the ischial hamstring tendon insertion concerning horizontal, vertical, and square dimensions was performed. Read More
