RADIAL head arthroplasty: does ligaments repair influence outcomes? A minimum two years follow-up radiographic multi-center study.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2021 Apr 24. Epub 2021 Apr 24.

Ortopedia e Traumatologia Ospedale Degli Infermi Faenza, Viale Stradone, 9, 48018, Faenza, Ravenna, Italy.

Determining the development stage of the ossification centers around the elbow may aid in deciding whether to use ESIN or not in adolescents' forearm shaft fractures.

Acta Orthop 2021 Apr 18:1-7. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Department of Children and Adolescents, Oulu University Hospital; PEDEGO Research Group, Oulu Childhood Fracture and Sports Injury Study, Oulu University and Oulu University Hospital; Medical Research Council, Oulu University, Oulu, Finland;

Background and purpose - Elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) is the preferred method of operative stabilization of unstable pediatric forearm shaft fractures. However, the decision whether to use ESIN or open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) in older children or teenagers is not always straightforward. We hypothesized that the development stage of the elbow would aid in evaluating the eligibility of the patient for ESIN. Read More

Clinical Management of Olecranon Bursitis: A Review.

J Hand Surg Am 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL. Electronic address:

Olecranon bursitis is a disease characterized by inflammation of the olecranon bursa, most often due to microtrauma. Although it is a common condition, there is a lack of evidence-based recommendations for the management of nonseptic olecranon bursitis. The condition is often self-limited and resolves with conservative methods such as rest, ice, compression, orthosis wear, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Read More

Innovative adaptation of the "spare tissues concept" applied for olecranon coverage of a severe burn patient: A case report.

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2021 Apr 7. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Maxillo-Facial Surgery, Purpan University Hospital, Toulouse, France.

Background: The management of bone exposure in patients with extensive burns could be a challenge due to the lack of healthy tissue. In such cases, it could be interesting to use any still healthy tissue initially destined for amputation and use it to cover up another site. We present the case of a sever burn patient for whom we used the only healthy palmar hand skin to cover an olecranon exposure. Read More

A new ankylosaurid skeleton from the Upper Cretaceous Baruungoyot Formation of Mongolia: its implications for ankylosaurid postcranial evolution.

Sci Rep 2021 Mar 18;11(1):4101. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Seoul National University, Seoul, 08826, South Korea.

A new articulated postcranial specimen of an indeterminate ankylosaurid dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous (middle-upper Campanian) Baruungoyot Formation from Hermiin Tsav, southern Gobi Desert, Mongolia includes twelve dorsal vertebrae, ribs, pectoral girdles, forelimbs, pelvic girdles, hind limbs, and free osteoderms. The new specimen shows that Asian ankylosaurids evolved rigid bodies with a decreased number of pedal phalanges. It also implies that there were at least two forms of flank armor within Ankylosauridae, one with spine-like osteoderms and the other with keeled rhomboidal osteoderms. Read More

Do irradiated osteo-articular recycled tumor autografts still hold promise for biological joint reconstruction? Our experience with acetabular and proximal ulna ECRT.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2021 May 13;16:149-153. Epub 2020 Dec 13.

P.D. Hinduja National Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Room 1417, Hinduja Clinic, P.D. Hinduja Hospital, Veer Savarkar Marg, Mahim, Mumbai, 400016, India.

Background: Joint reconstruction following resection of malignant bone tumors is challenging in itself in spite of several options in hand. Ability to restore joint anatomy, function and mobility while achieving optimal oncological outcomes are the requirement of reconstructions today. While biological reconstructions (allograft or recycled tumor autografts) following tumor bone surgery are popular for intercalary resections not involving the joint, their use for osteo-articular reconstructions are associated with concerns over cartilage and joint health.

The Use of High Strength Sutures and Anchors in Olecranon Fractures: A Systematic Review.

Geriatr Orthop Surg Rehabil 2021 24;12:2151459321996626. Epub 2021 Feb 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Purpose/background: Olecranon fractures are common, particularly in the elderly osteoporotic population. Although various techniques of fixation are available, the gold standard-tension band wiring (TBW)-has high complication and reoperation rates. We sought to identify current evidence for the use of high-strength suture tension banding methods to determine whether they reduce complications and reoperation rates while maintaining fixation.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2021 Mar 10. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Distal humeral fractures are relatively rare injuries in adults. Fractures that involve the articular surface can be particularly challenging to treat. Open reduction-internal fixation (ORIF) remains the preferred treatment for most intra-articular distal humeral fractures, depending on the degree of comminution and functional demands of the patient.

Low-Profile, Suture Anchor Tension Band Construct for Olecranon Fractures and Osteotomies.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Feb 15;10(2):e325-e331. Epub 2021 Jan 15.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Valley Hospital Medical Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.

Olecranon fractures are common and frequently require surgical intervention when they are displaced or unstable. Treatment is largely dictated by fracture type and surgeon preference. Traditional methods of fixation, including tension band wiring and locking plate fixation, have adequate union rates; however, both techniques are associated with increased reoperation rates due to symptomatic hardware.
