Arthroscopic double-row rotator cuff repair: a comprehensive review of the literature.

SICOT J 2018 14;4:57. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Istanbul University-Cerrahpasa, Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty, Istanbul, Turkey.

Rotator cuff repairs seek to achieve adequate tendon fixation and to secure the fixation during the process of biological healing. Currently, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair has become the gold standard. One of the earliest defined techniques is single-row repair but the inadequacy of single-row repair to precisely restore the anatomical footprint as well as the significant rates of retear especially in large tears have led surgeons to seek other techniques.

Hip hemi-arthroplasty for neck of femur fracture: What is the current evidence?

World J Orthop 2018 Nov 18;9(11):235-244. Epub 2018 Nov 18.

Orthopaedic Department, Leeds General Infirmary, Great George St, Leeds LS1 3EX, United Kingdom.

This editorial reviews and summarises the current evidence (meta-analyses and Cochrane reviews) relating to the use of hip hemi-arthroplasty for neck of femur fractures. Regarding the optimal surgical approach, two recent meta-analyses have found that posterior approaches are associated with: higher rates of dislocation compared to lateral and anterior approaches; and higher rates of re-operation compared to lateral approaches. Posterior approaches should therefore be avoided when performing hip hemi-arthroplasty procedures. Read More

Deltoid Ligament Rupture in Ankle Fracture: Diagnosis and Management.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

From the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL.

The last stage of a supination-external rotation ankle fracture involves either transverse fracture of the medial malleolus or rupture of the deltoid ligament. When the deltoid ligament ruptures, a "bimalleolar equivalent" ankle fracture occurs, and the surgeon is presented with several diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. In the native ankle, the deltoid ligament provides restraint to eversion and external rotation of the talus on the tibia. Read More

J Atr Fibrillation 2018 Jun-Jul;11(1):1806. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Valley Health System of NY and NJ, Paramus, NJ.

The thrombus formed within the LAA is responsible for the vast (about 90%) majority of strokes. Anticoagulation, although effective therapy for stroke prevention is not feasible in a significant minority of patients due to various reasons. Two percutaenous LAA exclusion techniques have been developed in an effort to decrease risk for stroke: endocardial closure/plugging of the LAA (Watchman, Amplatzer devices) and epicardial LAA ligation (LARIAT).

Ankle Stabilization With Arthroscopic Versus Open With Suture Tape Augmentation Techniques.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Research Coordinator, Aurora Research Institute, Aurora Health Care, Milwaukee, WI.

Ankle instability is a common problem that often leads to surgery to stabilize the ankle if conservative methods are unsuccessful in returning the patient to full activity. Surgical ankle stabilization, including arthroscopic and open methods, has been performed with overall excellent results reported. Although initial ligament strength after repair is weaker than the native ligament, new methods of augmentation with suture tape have yielded initial strength comparable to native ligament.

A prospective evaluation and management of different types of placenta praevia using parallel vertical compression suture to preserve uterus.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(46):e13253

The rising tendency of cesarean sections will lead invariably to more complications such as placenta praevia. The aim of our study was to evaluate the utility of parallel vertical compression suture to preserve uterus in cases of placenta praevia, and to propose a rational approach of these problematic cases, according to their grade of myometrial invasion.We prospectively included 95 consecutive cases diagnosed with placenta praevia (group1 [Gr1]) where we used parallel compression suture and compared to retrospectively analyzed 100 consecutive cases managed without using this technique (group 2 [Gr2]).

Robotic distal pancreatectomy with selective closure of pancreatic duct: surgical outcomes.

Updates Surg 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Division of Oncological and Robotic General Surgery, Careggi University Hospital, Florence, Italy.

Pancreatic fistula is the main post-operative complication of distal pancreatectomy associated with other further complications, such as intra-abdominal abscesses, wound infection, sepsis, electrolyte imbalance, malabsorption and hemorrhage. Surgeons have tried various techniques to close the stump of the remaining pancreas, but the controversy regarding the impact of stapler closure and suture closure of the pancreatic stump is far from resolved. In this study, we reported our technique and results of robotic assisted distal pancreatectomy with ultrasound identification and consequent selective closure of pancreatic duct. Read More
