Ligamentum Teres Impingement in Valgus Impacted Femoral Neck Fracture: A Case for Hip Arthroscopy.

JBJS Case Connect 2020 Oct-Dec;10(4):e2000284

1Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Lower Extremities, Schulthess Clinic, Zurich, Switzerland.

Case: Seven years after hip arthroscopy for cam impingement, a 47-year-old female patient suffered a valgus impacted femoral neck fracture of her left hip that was stabilized with cannulated screws. After fracture healing, she experienced persisting sharp groin pain that could be elicited in flexion/internal rotation and extension/adduction. We suspected a ligamentum teres impingement at the border of the acetabular fossa due to a post-traumatic fovea alta and performed an arthroscopic ligament resection. Read More

Three-dimensional analysis of anterior talofibular ligament strain patterns during cadaveric ankle motion using a miniaturized ligament performance probe.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2021 Feb 20;22(1):208. Epub 2021 Feb 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dokkyo Medical University Saitama Medical Center, 2-1-50, Minamikoshigaya, Koshigaya, Saitama, Japan.

Background: Measuring the strain patterns of ligaments at various joint positions informs our understanding of their function. However, few studies have examined the biomechanical properties of ankle ligaments; further, the tensile properties of each ligament, during motion, have not been described. This limitation exists because current biomechanical sensors are too big to insert within the ankle. Read More

Hip preservation surgery and the acetabular fossa.

Bone Joint Res 2020 Dec;9(12):857-869

Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, Canada.

As our understanding of hip function and disease improves, it is evident that the acetabular fossa has received little attention, despite it comprising over half of the acetabulum's surface area and showing the first signs of degeneration. The fossa's function is expected to be more than augmenting static stability with the ligamentum teres and being a templating landmark in arthroplasty. Indeed, the fossa, which is almost mature at 16 weeks of intrauterine development, plays a key role in hip development, enabling its nutrition through vascularization and synovial fluid, as well as the influx of chondrogenic stem/progenitor cells that build articular cartilage.

Left-sided gallbladder (LSG) associated with true diverticulum, a case report.

AME Case Rep 2020 30;4:26. Epub 2020 Oct 30.

General Surgery Service at Getúlio Vargas Teaching Hospital (HUGV), Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil.

The left-sided gallbladder (LSG) is a rare type of anatomical variation (ectopia) defined by the location of the bladder to the left side of the liver falciform and round ligaments. Initially reported in 1886 by Hochstetter, the finding is usually accidental since it is mostly an asymptomatic condition, thus not causing the patient any harm and being few reported cases in the current literature. Surgical cases are most associated with gallstones such as presented in this case report. Read More

Robotic radical hysterectomy for cervical adenocarcinoma after preoperative brachytherapy in 10 steps.

J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2020 Oct 5. Epub 2020 Oct 5.

Department of Surgical Oncology, ICM - Val d'Aurelle - Montpellier, France.

Study Objective: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) decreases postoperative morbidity after radical hysterectomy (RH) for early-stage cervical cancer. However, a randomized trial and large retrospective data question its safety after observing lower rates of survival than open surgery [1,2]. The causes of this higher recurrence rate are not definitely established but may result from cancer exposure to peritoneum during vaginal section and cancerous-cells spillage enhanced by pneumoperitoneum or uterine manipulator.
