Michael Meyer

Biomed Eng Online 2019 Mar 18;18(1):24. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Research Institute for Leather and Plastic Sheeting, Meissner Ring 1-5, 09599, Freiberg, Germany.

Collagen, the most abundant extracellular matrix protein in animal kingdom belongs to a family of fibrous proteins, which transfer load in tissues and which provide a highly biocompatible environment for cells. This high biocompatibility makes collagen a perfect biomaterial for implantable medical products and scaffolds for in vitro testing systems. To manufacture collagen based solutions, porous sponges, membranes and threads for surgical and dental purposes or cell culture matrices, collagen rich tissues as skin and tendon of mammals are intensively processed by physical and chemical means.

Knee Dislocation (KD) IV Injuries of the Knee: Presentation, Treatment, and Outcomes.

Clin Sports Med 2019 Apr 19;38(2):247-260. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of New Mexico, MSC10 5600, 1 University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131-0001, USA. Electronic address:

"KDIV ligamentous injuries of the knee are frequently high-energy injuries with significant soft tissue disruption, gross knee instability, and rarely are treated nonoperatively. KDIVs frequently require external fixation, but when presenting in an isolated fashion can be reconstructed in one setting. Five presentations of KDIV injury are described: closed with multitrauma/closed head injury requiring external fixation, irreducible KDIV requiring semi-emergent open reduction and repair, isolated KDIV without arterial injury undergoing 4-ligament reconstruction after regaining motion, KDIV with varus and slight thrust undergoing medial opening osteotomy before ligament reconstruction, and KDIV with failed ligaments requiring revision and posterior tibial tendon transfer.

The Stener Lesion and Complete Ulnar Collateral Ligament Injuries of the Thumb A Review.

Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2019 Mar;77(1):11-20

A Stener lesion is a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) from the thumb proximal phalanx at the level of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint that is displaced superficial to the adductor pollicis aponeurosis, leading to interposition of the aponeurosis between the UCL and the MCP joint. The interposition of the adductor aponeurosis distinguishes the Stener lesion from other UCL injuries and impedes healing, thereby necessitating surgery. A thorough clinical examination, including valgus stress testing of the MCP joint, is crucial to the diagnosis. Read More

Pectoralis major tendon transfer for recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation after primary surgery in an elderly patient: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(5):e14264

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Soonchunhyang University Hospital Cheonan, Cheonan, Korea.

Rationale: Adequate stability of traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation without any obvious damage to the anterior capsulolabral structure in elderly patients can be achieved by treating the associated rotator cuff injuries. However, in case of recurrent shoulder dislocation despite rotator cuff repair, the repaired rotator cuff may be weakened or reruptured and is often impossible to repair again. Therefore, the role of the rotator cuff as a shoulder stabilizer cannot be expected. Read More

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

The subscapularis tendon, at one point, was thought of as the forgotten tendon, with "hidden lesions" that referred to partial tears of this tendon. Better understanding of anatomy and biomechanics combined with improved imaging technology and the widespread use of arthroscopy has led to a higher rate of subscapularis tear diagnoses and repairs. The bulk mass of the subscapularis muscle is more than that of all 3 other rotator cuff muscles combined. Read More

Novel Axillary Block Management for Tendon Transfer Surgery: A Case Report.

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 Neuro-Orthopaedic Approach.

Phys Med Rehabil Clin N Am 2018 08 29;29(3):567-591. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania, 2 Wood Center, 34th and Civic Center Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA. Electronic address:

Upper motor neuron disease or injury can lead to muscle spasticity or nonfunction throughout the body. Imbalance in muscle forces predisposes patients to development of functional deficiencies, contractures, pain, and poor hygiene. The approach to neuro-orthopaedic patients is by necessity multidisciplinary, because a variety of nonsurgical and surgical options are available. Read More

Secondary procedures for restoration of upper limb function in late cases of neonatal brachial plexus palsy.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2019 Feb 8;29(2):329-336. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Οrthopedics, University Hospital of Ioannina, Stavros Niarchos Avenue, 45500, Ioannina, Greece.

Neonatal brachial plexus palsy is a devastating complication after a difficult delivery. The incidence of this injury has not significantly decreased over the past decades, despite all the advances in perinatal care. Although primary repair of the nerves with microsurgical techniques is the common treatment strategy nowadays, there are late cases in which secondary procedures in tendons or bones are necessary.

Calcific Insertional Achilles Tendinopathy-Achilles Repair With Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendon Transfer: Case Series and Surgical Technique.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Mar 3;58(2):236-242. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Director of Residency Training, Division of Foot and Ankle Surgery, West Penn Hospital, Allegheny Health Network, Pittsburgh, PA. Electronic address:

Calcific insertional Achilles tendinopathy (CIAT) is a relatively common musculoskeletal entity that results in significant pain and disability, as well as posterior muscle group weakness. There is a lack of evidence criteria to support the timing of operative intervention, choice of procedures, or whether equinus requires treatment. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review 45 patients (48 feet) who have undergone surgical management of CIAT with concomitant posterior muscle group weakness with the single heel rise testing.

Tibialis posterior transfer for foot drop due to central causes: Long-term hindfoot alignment.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 Feb 24;105(1):153-158. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Université Lille-Nord-de-France, Lille, France; Service d'orthopédie B, hôpital Salengro, CHRU de Lille, place de Verdun, 59037 Lille cedex, France; Laboratoire d'anatomie, faculté de médecine Henri-Warembourg, université de Lille 2, 59045 Lille cedex, France.

Background: Tibialis posterior transfer (TPT) is the treatment most widely used to palliate foot drop due to dorsiflexor palsy. TPT has been extensively studied in patients with peripheral neurological causes of foot drop. In contrast, data are scarce on central foot drop, in which TPT is often blamed for causing flattening of the arches. 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 2019 Mar 13;58(2):213-220. 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

Lower trapezius transfer with Achilles tendon augmentation: indication and clinical results.

Obere Extrem 2018 7;13(4):269-272. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SW, 55905 Rochester, MN USA.

Lower trapezius tendon transfer with Achilles tendon allograft augmentation may be used to treat patients with lack of active external rotation following shoulder paralysis or massive irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears. In the setting of shoulder paralysis, the integrity of the ipsilateral lower trapezius may be compromised. In this instance, the contralateral lower trapezius may be used with reasonable results.
