Two-stage hip revision arthroplasty for periprosthetic joint infection without the use of spacer or cemented implants.

Int Orthop 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Trauma and Orthopedic Surgery, Berufsgenossenschaftliche Unfallklinik Frankfurt am Main, Friedberger Landstr. 430, 60389, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Introduction: There is no gold standard for performing a two-stage exchange arthroplasty to treat periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). The use of spacers and the anchorage principles of the revision prosthesis remain controversial. Herein, we report the success rate of a two-stage total hip replacement procedure without using a spacer and only pressfit cementless implants. Read More

Int Orthop 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute, St. Mary's Hospital, West Palm Beach, FL, 33407, USA.

Purpose: Stump overgrowth is the main problem of limb amputation in children. Many surgical procedures have been developed to overcome the problem, but all have shown inconsistent results. The only surgical procedure that has been successful in preventing overgrowth is capping of the amputated limb with a cartilaginous cap taken from the amputated limb, usually from the head of fibula.

Outcome of femoral fractures in poliomyelitis patients.

Int Orthop 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Orthopedic Trauma Service, Hadassah Hebrew University Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel.

Background And Purpose: As patients who were afflicted with poliomyelitis during the outbreaks in the past are aging, lower extremity osteoporotic fractures are becoming more frequent. Fixation in deformed, porotic bone, coupled with muscle weakness and imbalance creates a unique challenge when treating these fractures as does their reduced rehabilitation potential. The aim of this study was to investigate the outcome of femoral fractures in surviving poliomyelitis patients. Read More

Int Orthop 2019 Mar 10;43(3):647-651. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Sant'andrea Hospital, Traumatology Sports Center "Kilk Kilgour", "La Sapienza" University, Via Di Grottarossa, 1035-1039, Rome, RM, Italy.

Introduction: Biological arthroplasties are the most used surgical techniques, for the treatment of trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis; all of them provide the reconstruction of trapeziometacarpal joint by a tendon graft. The aim of the study is to compare two surgical techniques: interposition arthroplasty and suspension arthroplasty at 12-month follow-up in order to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results.

Methods: Sixty-seven patients surgically treated for basal thumb osteoarthritis were divided into two groups: 36 patients, (8 M; 27 F) (39 hands), treated with interposition arthroplasty are included in group A and 31 patients, (6 M; 25 F) (34 hands), treated with suspension are included in group B.

Vitamin D: part II; cod liver oil, ultraviolet radiation, and eradication of rickets.

Int Orthop 2019 Mar 9;43(3):735-749. 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
