Schwannoma involving the blood vessels is a rare phenomenon. So far, only three cases of intravascular schwannoma have been described (all of which were intraluminal), and the origin of the schwannoma in such cases is not yet completely understood. Here we describe a very rare intramural venous schwannoma in the subcutaneous right prepatellar area of a 31-year-old man. Read More

Objectives Bursitis of the olecranon and the patella are not rare disorders, and conservative management is successful in most cases. However, when patients do not respond to conservative treatment, open excisional surgery or, recently, endoscopic bursectomy, can be used. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of open and endoscopic treatments of olecranon and prepatellar bursitis. Read More

A 31-yr-old soldier presented with an 8-mo history of right prepatellar bursitis with 1-mo history of pain and loss of range of motion. His symptoms did not respond to activity modification, compression, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, or repeated aspirations with fenestration. After thorough discussion, the soldier and his provider reviewed the literature and found a single case report of intrabursal sclerotherapy in two patients with recalcitrant prepatellar bursitis.

Background: Obesity has been associated with varying adverse outcomes related to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and has long been associated with various mechanical complications. Computational modeling holds promise for investigating biomechanical aberrations related to TKA in obese patients. However, basic anthropometric information regarding the shape of the lower extremity in obese patients is lacking. Read More

Background: Obesity has been associated with complications after a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Surgical site infection (SSI) after TKA is one of the feared complications as it increases revision rates, costs, and stress to the patient. There is conflicting evidence in the literature regarding body mass index (BMI) and risk of infection after TKA, and some studies have suggested that site-specific fat distribution may be a better metric for determining risk of postoperative infections.

Peripatellar fat pads are intracapsular extrasynovial adipose cushions that accommodate the changing shape and volume of articular spaces during movement. Variations in bone geometry, passive and active stabilization mechanisms and/or functional demands may lead to peripatellar fat pad abnormalities. While peripatellar fat pads may be affected a variety of conditions such as synovial inflammation, tumor and fibrosis, a mechanical origin should also be considered. Read More

Septic bursitis (SB) is an important differential diagnosis in athletes presenting with an acute subcutaneous swelling of the elbow or knee. Prompt recognition is essential to minimize recovery time and prevent the spread of infection. Due to the significant overlap in clinical features, it is often difficult to differentiate SB from non-septic bursitis (NSB) without bursal aspirate analysis. Read More

Background: Previous studies showed that among persons with radiographic knee OA, periarticular lesions were significantly more common among participants with knee pain than those without. However, data were derived mostly from persons with knee OA, and there were few normal participants without knee OA in the data analyses. The objectives of this study were to investigate the prevalence of periarticular lesions detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and to examine their prevalence according to the presence of knee pain and radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) in community residents in Korea.

Background: Morbid obesity has been associated with increased complications after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA), but previous studies have failed to take factors such as body composition and fat distribution into consideration. The aims of this study were to (1) assess the interobservable and intraobservable reliabilities of measuring anterior knee subcutaneous fat thickness on lateral knee radiographs and (2) determine if these measurements associate with early complications in patients with morbid obesity.
Methods: Using a retrospective case-control analysis, we reviewed 1689 primary TKAs performed in morbidly obese patients at our institution from 1995 to 2012. Read More

Medial patellar instability can be a disabling complication of an extensive lateral retinaculum release. It is often overlooked, and for the diagnosis, it is necessary to have a high index of suspicion. Typically, the patient feels a new pain and new instability after the lateral retinaculum release that are distinct from, and much worse than, those before surgery. Read More

Functional reconstruction following a wide resection for a malignant musculoskeletal tumor is often challenging, particularly for juxta-articular tumors. The current study describes a novel surgical procedure for the functional reconstruction of the knee extensor mechanism with a pedicle frozen auto-bone and -tendon graft, in a case of prepatellar clear cell sarcoma. The active range of motion of the knee was from 0-135°, and the extension muscular strength of the knee was evaluated as 5/5 by a manual muscle test at 14 months post-surgery (International Society of Limb Salvage score, 73%); this was improved compared with a similar procedure previously described by Muramatsu .
