Drug Release from Thermo-Responsive Polymer Brush Coatings to Control Bacterial Colonization and Biofilm Growth on Titanium Implants.

Adv Healthc Mater 2021 May 5:e2100069. Epub 2021 May 5.

Physical Chemistry I and Research Center of Micro and Nanochemistry and Engineering (Cµ), Department of Chemistry and Biology, School of Science and Technology, University of Siegen, Adolf-Reichwein-Str. 2, Siegen, 57076, Germany.

Despite decades of biomedical advances, the colonization of implant devices with bacterial biofilms is still a leading cause of implant failure. Clearly, new strategies and materials that suppress both initial and later stage bacterial colonization are required in this context. Ideal would be the implementation of a bactericidal functionality in the implants that is temporally and spatially triggered in an autonomous fashion at the infection site. Read More

Despite higher revision rate, MoM large-head THA offers better clinical scores than HR: 14-year results from a randomized controlled trial involving 48 patients.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2021 Apr 30;22(1):400. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Surgery Department, Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Montreal University, 5415 Boulevard de l'Assomption, Montréal, Québec, H1T 2M4, Canada.

Background: The high failure rates of metal on metal (MoM) large diameter head total hip arthroplasty (LDH THA) and hip resurfacing (HR) prevented their long-term comparisons with regards to clinical outcome. Such knowledge would be important as ceramic LDH bearing is now available. With long-term follow-up, we investigated the difference in 1) patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs); 2) revision and adverse events rates, and 3) metal ion levels between MoM LDH THA and HR.

Outcomes and complications after dual plate vs. single plate fixation of displaced mid-shaft clavicle fractures: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2021 Jun 14;17:261-266. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Section of Orthopaedic Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Calgary, Calgary, Canada.

Introduction: Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of displaced midshaft clavicle fractures is associated with higher union rates and earlier functional recovery. However, ORIF with plate fixation is associated with complications including implant irritation and implant failure. Dual plate fixation provides fixation in orthogonal planes, and uses a lower profile fixation technique in comparison to pre-contoured and surgeon-contoured small-fragment locking plates, which may be more prominent.

Early Aseptic Loosening with Increased Presence and Severity of Backside Burnishing in the Optetrak Logic Posterior-Stabilized Total Knee Arthroplasty Femoral Component.

J Knee Surg 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Complex Joint Reconstruction Center, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York City, New York.

Concerns persist that the Optetrak Logic posterior-stabilized (PS) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) femoral component might correlate with early failures due to aseptic loosening. The primary aim of this study was to examine if the use of the Optetrak Logic PS femoral component is associated with early (<5 years) and more extensive aseptic loosening compared with other PS femoral components. This is a single-institution retrieval analysis and revision registry study (based on prospectively collected data) of 27 failed primary PS TKA patients with loose femoral components that underwent revision TKAs between 2016 and 2019.
