Anterior cervical surgery to treat diffuse idiopathic skeletal hypertrophic combined with cervical disc herniation: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jun;100(22):e26097

Shenzhen Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, Shenzhen, China.

Rationale: Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a skeletal disease characterized by calcification of anterolateral ligaments of the spine and the rest of the body. DISH combined with disc herniation induces complex symptoms and is more difficult to treat. Here, we describe a complicated case of a patient diagnosed with DISH as well as cervical disc herniation that was successfully treated using anterior cervical surgery. Read More

High Rate of Initially Overlooked Kaplan Fiber Complex Injuries in Patients With Isolated Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury.

Am J Sports Med 2021 Jun 4:3635465211015682. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Connecticut, Farmington, Connecticut, USA.

Background: Injuries to the Kaplan fiber complex (KFC) are not routinely assessed for in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-deficient knee during preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). As injuries to the KFC lead to anterolateral rotatory instability (ALRI) in the ACL-deficient knee, preoperative detection of these injuries on MRI scans may help surgeons to individualize treatment and improve outcomes, as well as to reduce failure rates.

Purpose: To retrospectively determine the rate of initially overlooked KFC injuries on routine MRI in knees with isolated primary ACL deficiency. Read More

Endoscopic Endonasal Transclival Approach to Ventral Pontine Cavernous Malformation: Case Report.

Front Surg 2021 12;8:654837. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, The Second Affiliated Hospital, School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

Ventral medial pontine cavernous malformations are challenging due to the location in eloquent tissue, surrounding critical anatomy, and potential symptomatic bleeding. Conventional approaches, such as anterolateral, lateral and dorsal approach, are associated with high risk of deleterious consequences due to excessive traction and damage to the surrounding tissues. The authors present an endoscopic endonasal approach for the resection of midline ventral pontine cavernous malformations, which follows principles of optimal access to brainstem cavernous malformations as the "two-point method.

Cortex-dependent corrections as the tongue reaches for and misses targets.

Nature 2021 Jun 19;594(7861):82-87. Epub 2021 May 19.

Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.

Precise tongue control is necessary for drinking, eating and vocalizing. However, because tongue movements are fast and difficult to resolve, neural control of lingual kinematics remains poorly understood. Here we combine kilohertz-frame-rate imaging and a deep-learning-based neural network to resolve 3D tongue kinematics in mice drinking from a water spout. Read More

NPWTi allows safe delayed free flap repair of Gustilo IIIb injuries: A prospective case series.

Regen Ther 2021 Dec 23;18:82-87. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Yachiyo Medical Center, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Yachiyo-shi, Chiba, 276-8524, Japan.

Introduction: Free flap lower extremity repair is associated with a high complication rate (>31%); higher rates are observed in more severe patients. In cases requiring prior systemic/local stabilization, delayed repair increases complication rate (+10% at 7 days): Negative-pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) decreases complications but only when applied for less than 7 days. Recent limited evidence suggests that augmentation of NPWT with instillation for wound irrigation (NPWTi) might safely extend such window. Read More

Shoulder Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair With Biceps Tenodesis and Acromioplasty Using a Single Working Portal.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Apr 22;10(4):e1125-e1129. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology, Saint Georges University Medical Center, Balamand University, Beirut, Lebanon.

Rotator cuff repair, acromioplasty, and biceps tenodesis operations have become some of the most common shoulder surgical procedures, evolving from open techniques to minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques. The use of many arthroscopic portals has been associated with surgical risks to many surrounding anatomic structures. We present an arthroscopic technique using a single anterolateral working portal for rotator cuff repair, acromioplasty, distal clavicle excision, and long head of the biceps tenodesis; this technique decreases the risk of injury to the surrounding neurovascular and musculotendinous structures, enables a faster recovery, and is minimally invasive.

Cureus 2021 Apr 8;13(4):e14369. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Pain Management-Physiotherapy, Tripler Army Medical Center, Honolulu, USA.

Costochondritis is a self-limiting, poorly described, and benign condition that usually manifests as non-cardiac chest pain. The symptoms usually tend to resolve in a couple of weeks. Serious causes of chest pain should be ruled out prior to diagnosing costochondritis, as it is often a diagnosis of exclusion. Read More

Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation: A Multifaceted Syndrome with Evolving Therapies.

Biomedicines 2021 Apr 21;9(5). Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Department of Clinical, Internal Medicine, Anesthesiology and Cardiovascular Sciences, Sapienza University of Rome, 00161 Rome, Italy.

Dysfunction of the left ventricle (LV) with impaired contractility following chronic ischemia or acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the main cause of ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR), leading to moderate and moderate-to-severe mitral regurgitation (MR). The site of AMI exerts a specific influence determining different patterns of adverse LV remodeling. In general, inferior-posterior AMI is more frequently associated with regional structural changes than the anterolateral one, which is associated with global adverse LV remodeling, ultimately leading to different phenotypes of IMR.

J Knee Surg 2021 Apr 14. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

American Sports Medicine Institute, Birmingham, Alabama.

Injuries to the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee are commonly associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures. Biomechanical studies have demonstrated conflicting results with regard to the role of the ALL in limiting tibial internal rotation. Clinically, residual pivot shift following ACL reconstruction has been reported to occur up to 25% and has been correlated with poor outcomes. Read More

Internal Fixation of a Lateral Inverted Osteochondral Fracture of the Talus (LIFT) Lesion Using an Innovative Surgical Approach: Inverting the Capsulo-Lateral Fibulotalocalcaneal Ligament (LFTCL)-Fibular Periosteum Complex.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Mar 15. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Department of Medicine of Sensory and Motor Organs, Faculty of Medicine, University of Miyazaki, Kiyotake, Miyazaki 889-1692, Japan.

Osteotomy of the distal fibula or anterolateral corner of the tibia is usually required to fix a displaced osteochondral fracture of the talus that is located central to posterior area of the lateral talar dome. However, osteotomy is an invasive procedure and is associated with complications, including nonunion, persistent pain, and hardware-related problems. Lateral inverted osteochondral fracture of the talus (LIFT) lesion is an extremely rare type of displaced osteochondral lesion of the talus. Read More
