A A Pract 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Departement of Orthopedic Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Rodez General Hospital, Rodez, France.

The outcome of upper limb tendon transfer surgery is improved when the patient is able to voluntarily contract specific muscles during the surgical procedure. Tumescent local anesthesia is suitable, but we describe an alternative option that involves the novel management of an axillary block. A 47-year-old man, injured in a motor vehicle crash, exhibited a thumb extensor deficit because of severe muscular trauma to the forearm. Read More

The anatomic location and importance of the tibialis posterior fascicular bundle at the sciatic nerve bifurcation: report of 3 cases.

J Neurosurg 2018 Dec 21:1-7. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Departments of2Neurosurgery and.

The authors present the cases of 3 patients with severe injuries affecting the peroneal nerve combined with loss of tibialis posterior function (inversion) despite preservation of other tibial nerve function. Loss of tibialis posterior function is problematic, since transfer of the tibialis posterior tendon is arguably the best reconstructive option for foot drop, when available. Analysis of preoperative imaging studies correlated with operative findings and showed that the injuries, while predominantly to the common peroneal nerve, also affected the lateral portion of the tibial nerve/division near the sciatic nerve bifurcation.

Management of Isolated Anterior Tibial Tendon Rupture: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Medical Writer, Scriptum Medica, University Place, WA. Electronic address:

Rupture of the tibialis anterior tendon is a rare condition reported to occur most often spontaneously in patients >45 years of age. Diagnosis is often delayed due to transient pain at the time of rupture and the ability of the long extensors to compensate for the lost action of the tibialis anterior. Treatment has been proposed to be based on the activity level of the individual; however, no consensus has been reached on the optimal treatment modality for this rare condition. Read More

The FDP-FDS-FDP Dual Tendon Transfer: A Simple, Single-stage Reconstruction Technique for Chronic, Isolated Flexor Digitorum Profundus Tendon Injuries.

Authors:
Nathan T Morrell

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT.

The reconstruction of chronic flexor tendon injuries remains one of the more challenging injuries facing the hand and upper extremity surgeon. In the setting of an intact flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS), there are few indications for isolated flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) reconstruction. Because of the interplay of the FDP system, the reestablishment of normal tension of the FDP tendons and lumbricals is particularly challenging, and postoperative stiffness, quadriga, or lumbrical plus phenomena can actually lead to a deterioration of digital function with surgery.

Entheses are regions where tendons and ligaments attach to bone, and are the primary target in seronegative and other diseases of the musculoskeletal (MSK) system. MRI has been widely used for visualizing features of inflammatory and degenerative MSK disease; however, normal tendons and entheses have short transverse relaxation times (T ), and show little or no signal with conventional clinical MRI pulse sequences, making it difficult to investigate their MR properties. In this study we examined the normal MR morphology of the cadaveric Achilles tendon and enthesis at 3 T using novel three-dimensional ultrashort echo time (3D UTE) Cones sequences, and at 11.

Intraoperative Tips for Hand Surgery: A Focus on Reducing Postoperative Scarring and Tendon Rupture.

Cureus 2018 Sep 10;10(9):e3274. Epub 2018 Sep 10.

Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, Tampa, USA.

This article is a collection of intraoperative techniques performed by a single hand surgeon with literature support for these techniques for the purpose of circumventing potential limitations intraoperatively. These techniques include the use of a Beaver Blade handle (Beaver, Beaver-Visitec, Waltham, MA, US) to be used as a rasp to smooth intraosseous tunnels during tendon transfers, a Stryker (Stryker, Stryker Corporation, Kalamazoo, MI, US) or Synthes (Deputy Synthes, Johnson & Johnson, West Palm Beach, FL, US) drill as a motorized file for plate deburring, and Insorb forceps (Insorb, Incisive Surgical, Plymouth, MN, US) for skin closure. These tips serve as methods to minimize scarring and circumvent unfortunate obstacles, such as tendon rupture, and the consequential weakened repair that can occur post-operatively. Read More

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Flexor Tendon Rupture in the Wrist with Asymptomatic Scapholunate Advanced Collapse: A Case Report.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Dec;23(4):589-592

1 Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Hokkaido Saiseikai Otaru Hospital, Otaru, Japan.

We experienced a rare case of carpal tunnel syndrome and rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon to the index finger with a scapholunate advanced collapse wrist. We speculated that the lunate that had extruded into the carpal tunnel compressed the median nerve and caused wear of the flexor tendon following neglected perilunate subluxation. Carpal tunnel release, opponensplasty by palmaris longus tendon transfer, and a bridge graft by a half-slip of the flexor carpi radialis tendon resulted in recovery of pinch function and improvement in numbness of the hand.

For how long do denervated muscles in children retain the ability to regenerate?: Restoration of elbow flexion and shoulder function by partial nerve transfer in a child with long-standing poliomyelitis-like paralysis.

J Orthop Sci 2018 Nov 10. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba, 1-1-1 Tennodai, Tsukuba-shi, Ibaraki Prefecture 305-8575, Japan.

Background: In infant poliomyelitis or poliomyelitis-like paresis, there has been no means of treating residual paralysis and the policy has been to wait until an affected infant has grown sufficiently to enable tendon transfer or arthrodesis. However, recent reports have described relatively good results for early surgical intervention in the form of nerve transfer.

Methods: In a 4-year and 6-month-old child we transferred a partial ulnar nerve for elbow flexor reconstruction even 3 years and 10 months after the onset of poliomyelitis-like palsy and also transferred partial accessory and radial nerves for shoulder function restoration 6 months after the first operation.
