Arthroscopically Assisted Fixation of Terrible Triad Variant Injuries of the Elbow With Small-Bore Needle Arthroscopy.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Jun 10;10(6):e1469-e1474. Epub 2021 May 10.

Mammoth Orthopedic Institute, Mammoth Hospital, Mammoth Lakes, California, U.S.A.

The range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications of needle arthroscopy (NA) continue to expand due to advances in image quality and resolution. Minimally invasive techniques can be augmented by the smaller camera size and reduced fluid use made possible by NA. Small-bore arthroscopy presents opportunities for use in smaller joints, such as the elbow, where applications of standard arthroscopic equipment may be limited by small anatomic spaces and fluid extravasation.

Missed Tillaux Fracture and Syndesmosis Injury in Adult: Arthroscopic Assisted Reduction and Fixation.

Rev Bras Ortop (Sao Paulo) 2021 Jun 21;56(3):399-402. Epub 2020 Dec 21.

Serviço de Ortopedia e Traumatologia, Hospital de Braga, Sete Fontes, São Victor, Braga, Portugal.

Tillaux fractures are fractures of the lateral margin of the distal tibia, usually reported in children between 12 and 14 years old. As intraarticular fractures, they require anatomic reduction and fixation to avoid posttraumatic complications. Since the injury mechanism is external rotation of the foot on the leg, these injuries are commonly associated with other fractures or ligamentous lesions. Read More

Additional coracoclavicular augmentation reduces revision rates in the treatment of lateral clavicle fractures as compared to angle-stable plate osteosynthesis alone.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Diakovere Friederikenstift, Humboldtstraße 5, 30169, Hannover, Germany.

Introduction: There is no uniform approach to the management of lateral clavicle fractures. Recent studies have investigated additive coracoclavicular (CC) augmentation as a treatment option; however, it is unclear whether it is superior to conventional locking plate osteosynthesis.

Methods: We carried out a retrospective analysis of 40 patients with lateral clavicle fracture (Neer type IIb) who were treated between 2014 and 2017 with either a hybrid locking plate osteosynthesis/additive arthroscopy-assisted CC augmentation (HP) procedure or a locking plate osteosynthesis only (PO) approach to determine which strategy was more effective.

Comparison of outcomes of ORIF versus bidirectional tractor and arthroscopically assisted CRIF in the treatment of lateral tibial plateau fractures: a retrospective cohort study.

J Orthop Surg Res 2021 May 3;16(1):289. Epub 2021 May 3.

School of Medicine, Nankai University, Tianjin, 300071, People's Republic of China.

Background: Lateral tibial plateau fractures (TPFs) are often treated with conventional open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) through standard anterolateral sub-meniscal arthrotomy. There has been increasing support for "bidirectional rapid redactor" device-assisted closed reduction and internal fixation (CRIF) for treating TPFs. The aim of the present study is to compare the clinical and radiological outcomes between CRIF and ORIF procedures. Read More

Technique description: Incisionless ultrasound-assisted biceps tenotomy in dogs.

Open Vet J 2021 01 22;10(4):457-464. Epub 2020 Dec 22.

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Calgary, 11877 85th St NW, Calgary, Alberta, T3R 1J3, Canada.

Background: Bicipital tendinitis and/or tendinopathy is a common cause of forelimb lameness in dogs, particularly in larger and more active patients. Although conservative treatment aimed at resolving discomfort and preserving the tendon remains the primary therapeutic goal, in certain cases it is necessary to surgically transect the tendon to eliminate pain and lameness. Transection of the tendon can be performed by open arthrotomy, arthroscopically, or percutaneously using a scalpel blade. Read More

[Arthroscopically assisted transmalleolar internal fixation of a lateral osteochondral lesion of the talus].

Unfallchirurg 2021 Apr 18;124(4):333-337. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Klinik für Unfall- und Wiederherstellungschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum der RWTH Aachen, Pauwelsstr. 30, 52074, Aachen, Deutschland.

Osteochondral lesions (OCL) of the talus can be caused by isolated or recurrent traumatic events. The established surgical treatment techniques are predominantly based on defect coverage by stimulation of fibrous cartilage or transplantation of osteochondral tissue or chondrocytes. An alternative is the preservation of an intact autochthonous hyaline cartilage surface with reconstruction of the subchondral lamella and the natural joint congruence. Read More

Arthroscopy-Assisted Latissimus Dorsi Transfer for Irreparable Subscapularis Tears.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Jan 19;10(1):e49-e53. Epub 2020 Dec 19.

Hospital Clínico Mutual de Seguridad CChC, Santiago, Chile.

Irreparable tears of the subscapularis (SS) tendon are difficult to manage and represent a challenge for the surgeon, especially in young and active patients. They are associated with a horizontal imbalance of the shoulder, causing pain and limitation of active internal rotation. Historically, the alternative for these patients has been transfer of the pectoralis major, with all its variations, total or partial, up or under the conjoint tendon. Read More

Additional acromioclavicular cerclage limits lateral tilt of the scapula in patients with arthroscopically assisted coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2021 Aug 23;141(8):1331-1338. Epub 2021 Jan 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, Technical University Munich, Munich, Germany.

Introduction: The current treatment for acromioclavicular (AC) dislocation lacks a gold standard and previous literature concludes that coracoclavicular (CC) fixation with additional AC cerclage fixation adds stability and is a useful adjunct to augment these repairs.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical and radiological value of an additional AC cerclage. It was hypothesised that an additional AC cerclage would show better clinical results. Read More
