Recommendations in the rehabilitation of patients undergoing hip abductor tendon repair: a systematic literature search and evidence based rehabilitation protocol.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre, 31 Outram Street, West Perth, WA, 6005, Australia.

Introduction: Advanced hip imaging and surgical findings have demonstrated that a common cause of greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is hip abductor tendon (HAT) tears. Traditionally, these patients have been managed non-operatively, often with temporary pain relief. More recently, there has been an increase in published work presenting the results of surgical intervention. Read More

Arthroscopic Reduction and Internal Fixation of Tibial Eminence Fractures With Transosseous Suture Bridge Fixation.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Apr 12;10(4):e1039-e1046. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

Arthroscopic reduction-internal fixation (ARIF) is an increasingly popular option for surgical management of displaced tibial eminence fractures. Although a variety of ARIF techniques have been described, anatomic reduction and stable fixation remain challenging. As a result, complications such as malunion, nonunion, anterior instability, arthrofibrosis, and hardware issues persist. Read More

Arthroscopic Transtibial Pull-Out Repair of Medial Meniscus Posterior Root Tear With a Whip Running Suture Technique.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Apr 12;10(4):e1017-e1024. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Medial meniscus posterior root tear is a disruptive injury causing significant sequelae. Several techniques to repair and maintain the native function of the medial meniscus have been introduced, but limitations have been reported in terms of their results. In this current note, the authors introduce the arthroscopic transtibial pull-out repair with whip running suture technique, which may not only avoid the potential risk of meniscus cut-through by the suture material but also optimize the reduction of the extruded meniscus.

Dynamically crosslinked polydimethylsiloxane-based polyurethanes with contact-killing antimicrobial properties as implantable alloplasts for urological reconstruction.

Acta Biomater 2021 May 9. Epub 2021 May 9.

Materials Research Centre, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore-560012, India; Center for Biosystems Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore-560012, India. Electronic address:

A large population of patients is reported to suffer from urinary bladder-associated irreversible physiological disorders, rationalizing a continuous surge for structural and functional substitutes of urinary tissues, including ureters, bladder-wall, and urethra. The current gold standard for bladder reconstruction, an autologous gastrointestinal graft, is proven not to be an ideal substitute in the clinic. While addressing this unmet clinical need, a unique set of antimicrobial polydimethyl siloxane-modified polyurethanes (TPU/PDMS) is designed and assessed for its potential application as a urological implant.

Narrative review of the contemporary surgical treatment of unicuspid aortic valve disease.

Cardiovasc Diagn Ther 2021 Apr;11(2):503-517

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, University Heart & Vascular Center, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

Unicuspid aortic valve disease (UAVD) is a frequent and long-lasting challenge for adult congenital heart disease centers. UAVD patients become usually symptomatic in their twenties or thirties and require a surgical treatment plan which should respect their complete lifespan combined with an adequate quality of life. Unfortunately, all current surgical strategies of congenital aortic valve disease bear some important limitations: (I) Aortic valve replacement using bioprosthetic valves is associated with early structural degeneration and leads frequently to re-operations.

Repair versus reconstruction for proximal anterior cruciate ligament tears: a study protocol for a prospective multicenter randomized controlled trial.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2021 Apr 30;22(1):399. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Amsterdam UMC, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: For active patients with a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) who would like to return to active level of sports, the current surgical gold standard is reconstruction of the ACL.

BMC Surg 2021 Apr 30;21(1):223. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Binzhou Medical University Hospital, No. 661 Huanghe 2nd Road, Binzhou, 256603, Shandong, People's Republic of China.

Background: Due to improvements in operative techniques and medical equipment, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery has become a mainstay of thoracic surgery. Nevertheless, in multiport thoracoscopic surgery, there have been no substantial advances related to the improvement of the esthetics of the site of the chest tube kept for postoperative drainage of intrathoracic fluid and decompression of air leak after thoracoscopic surgery. Leakage of fluid and air around the site of the chest tube can be extremely bothersome to patients. Read More
