Avascular Necrosis of Femoral Head-Overview and Current State of the Art.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 Jun 15;19(12). Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Faculty of Medicine, Collegium Medicum, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University in Warsaw, Woycickiego 1/3, 01-938 Warsaw, Poland.

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head is caused by disruption of the blood supply to the proximal femur. The alterations in the blood supply may occur following a traumatic event or result from a non-traumatic cause. Femoral neck fracture and hip dislocation and associated surgical procedures, corticosteroid therapy, and alcohol abuse frequently lead to AVN development. Read More

Healthcare (Basel) 2022 Jun 8;10(6). Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Morphological Sciences, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, RO-020021 Bucharest, Romania.

Osteochondral lesions (OCLs) that are frequently encountered in skeletally immature and adult patients are more common than once thought, and their incidence rate is rising. These lesions can appear in many synovial joints of the body, such as the shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle, occurring most often in the knee. The term osteochondral lesion includes a vast spectrum of pathologies such as osteochondritis dissecans, osteochondral defects, osteochondral fractures, and osteonecrosis of the subchondral bone.

Bisphosphonate Drug Holidays: Evidence From Clinical Trials and Real-World Studies.

JBMR Plus 2022 Jun 24;6(6):e10629. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology Westmead Hospital Westmead NSW Australia.

Bisphosphonates (BPs) are commonly used in the treatment of osteoporosis and are effective in the prevention of fragility fracture. Long-term use has been associated with the development of atypical femur fractures (AFFs) and osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ). Drug holidays seek to reduce the risk of insufficiency fractures (AFFs) while maintaining durable effects of long-term treatment in the prevention of fragility fracture. Read More

Predicting the Poor Clinical and Radiographic Outcomes after the Anatomical Reduction and Internal Fixation of Posterior Wall Acetabular Fractures: A Retrospective Analysis.

J Clin Med 2022 Jun 6;11(11). Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Orthopedics, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung 80708, Taiwan.

Anatomical reduction is the fundamental principle of hip function restoration after posterior acetabular wall fractures (PWFs). Some patients exhibit poor outcomes despite anatomical reduction, and the prognostic factors leading to poor outcomes remain elusive. This study aimed to investigate the clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients with PWFs who had undergone anatomical reduction and internal fixation and to identify the predictors that impair clinical and radiologic outcomes.

The MRI Effect in Clinical Decision Process in Perthes' Disease: "More Complex Imaging, More Complicated Surgeries".

Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2022 ;89(2):134-138

Ortopediatri, Pediatric Orthopedic Academy, Istanbul, Turkey.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Radiographs are preferred for understanding the deformity and containment in Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD), as well as for treatment planning, but plain radiographs provide only static information and are inadequate for dynamic assessment of the joint. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been shown to be superior to other diagnostic modalities.

Joint replacement for avascular necrosis in people living with HIV.

Acta Biomed 2022 03 10;92(S3):e2021560. Epub 2022 Mar 10.

Orthopedics and Traumatology Department, University of Sassari, Italy.

Recently, the interest on multifocal avascular necrosis (AVN) among people living with HIV (PLWH) is rising. PLWH have an incidence of symptomatic AVN significantly higher than the general population. The chronic viral infection may induce a direct damage via necrotizing vasculitis, on the other hand the highly active antiretroviral therapy represents a probable risk factor as it can indirectly lead to multifocal necrosis.
