Factors associated with surgeon recommendation for additional cast immobilization of a CT-verified nondisplaced scaphoid waist fracture.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2021 Jul 24. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Department of Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery, Flinders Medical Centre, Flinders University, Flinders Drive, Bedford Park, Adelaide, South Australia, 5042, Australia.

Introduction: Data from clinical trials suggest that CT-confirmed nondisplaced scaphoid waist fractures heal with less than the conventional 8-12 weeks of immobilization. Barriers to adopting shorter immobilization times in clinical practice may include a strong influence of fracture tenderness and radiographic appearance on decision-making. This study aimed to investigate (1) the degree to which surgeons use fracture tenderness and radiographic appearance of union, among other factors, to decide whether or not to recommend additional cast immobilization after 8 or 12 weeks of immobilization; (2) identify surgeon factors associated with the decision to continue cast immobilization after 8 or 12 weeks.

Equal bony resection of distal and posterior femur will lead to flexion/extension gap inequality in robot-assisted cruciate-retaining TKA.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2021 Jul 21. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, AZ Delta, 8800, Roeselare, Belgium.

Purpose: Joint imbalance has become one of the main reasons for early revision after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and it is directly related to the surgical technique. Therefore, a better understanding of how much bone has to be removed to obtain a balanced flexion/extension gap could improve current practice. The primary objective of this study was to analyse the amount of bone that needed to be removed from the distal and posterior femoral joint surfaces to obtain an equal flexion/extension gap in robot-assisted TKA.

Intraoperative Scrub Nurse Handoffs Are Associated With Increased Operative Times for Total Joint Arthroplasty Patients.

Arthroplast Today 2021 Aug 7;10:35-40. Epub 2021 Jul 7.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Surgeons typically remain scrubbed in for the duration of a surgical case, while scrub nurses are shift-workers who handoff mid-operation. These handoffs can intuitively create inefficiencies, but currently, no orthopedic research has studied the impact of these handoffs. This study analyzed the effect of intraoperative scrub nurse handoffs on operative times for total joint arthroplasties (TJAs). Read More

Methods to address metal artifacts in post-processed CT images - A guide for orthopedic surgeons.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2021 Sep 1;20:101493. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Department of Orthopedics, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Computed tomography (CT) scans are often used for postoperative imaging in orthopedics. In the presence of metallic hardware, artifacts are generated, which can hamper visualization of the CT images, and also render the study ineffective for 3-D printing. Various solutions are available to minimize metal artifacts, and radiologists can employ these before or after processing the CT study. Read More

Presence of Orthopedic Residency Decreases Emergency Physician's Confidence in Orthopedic Procedures.

Cureus 2021 Jun 9;13(6):e15551. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Emergency Medicine, OhioHealth Doctors Hospital, Columbus, USA.

Introduction: At present, there exists no standard orthopedic training for emergency medicine (EM) residency programs. Varying residency environments including but not limited to volume, acuity, and competing residency programs will dictate the number of orthopedic procedures a resident is exposed to, ultimately dictating a graduate's comfort level with orthopedic procedures. Our study set out to investigate further whether training alongside an orthopedic residency affects an attending physician's perceived procedural comfort. Read More

Treatment of Recurrent Peroneal Tendon Dislocation by Peroneal Retinaculum Reattachment Without Fibular Groove Deepening.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Jun 18. Epub 2021 Jun 18.

Professor, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

There are numerous studies recommending fibular groove deepening in the surgical treatment of peroneal tendon dislocation; however, there are some disadvantages to fibular groove deepening procedures. In this study, we evaluated the results of anatomic reattachment of the peroneal retinaculum without fibular groove deepening as a treatment for traumatic peroneal tendon dislocation. Thirty-six patients with recurrent peroneal tendon dislocation, who underwent retinaculum repair without a fibular groove deepening procedure performed by 2 surgeons between March 2004 and March 2017, were enrolled in this study.
