Revision Rates in Prepectoral Versus Subpectoral Delayed-Immediate Autologous Breast Reconstruction.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 Mar 24. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

From the College of Medicine, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY College of Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA.

Introduction: Breast reconstruction in the prepectoral plane has recently fallen into favor. Minimizing the number of revisionary procedures after reconstruction is an important factor in improving patient care, but long-term studies on the effects of prepectoral reconstruction are limited. In this study, we compare the revision rates after delayed-immediate, autologous reconstruction between prepectoral and subpectoral reconstructions. Read More

Fifteen-minute consultation: Recognition of sickle cell crises in the paediatric emergency department.

Arch Dis Child Educ Pract Ed 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Paediatric Emergency Department, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Cardiff, UK.

Children with sickle cell disease can develop life-threatening and painful crises that require prompt assessment and efficient management by healthcare professionals in the emergency or acute care setting. Due to migration patterns and improved survival rates in high-prevalence countries, there is an increased tendency to encounter these patients across the UK. These factors warrant regular revisions in sickle cell crisis management, along with education for medical personnel and patients to improve clinical care and patient management. Read More

Recognition of posterior thoracolumbar instrumentations used in spinal deformity surgery and techniques for implant removal.

J Clin Neurosci 2021 Apr 10;86:217-222. Epub 2021 Feb 10.

Krembil Neuroscience Centre, Toronto Western Hospital, University Health Network, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Spinal surgeries requiring implant removals/revisions are becoming more common, as a long time has passed since contemporary spinal instrumentation was developed and utilized. Recognizing implants and manufacturers preoperatively from radiographs and preparing appropriate instruments for removal are mandatory. The objective of the present paper was to review the various designs of contemporary posterior thoracolumbar spinal implants along with their radiographic features to facilitate the identification of previously used systems in removal or revision surgeries.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2021 Mar 24:102898. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Département universitaire de chirurgie orthopédique et traumatologique, University of Lille, CHU de Lille, ULR 4490, 59000 Lille, France; CRIOAC, centre de référence pour le traitement des infections ostéo-articulaires complexes Lille Tourcoing, Lille, France; Service de chirurgie orthopédique, Hôpital Roger-Salengro, CHRU de Lille, rue Émile-Laine, 59037 Lille, France.

Introduction: Knee arthrodesis utilizes an arthrodesis nail as a salvage technique for infected total knee arthroplasty (TKA), especially when the extensor mechanism is damaged, or the skin is compromised. This implant helps to minimize or prevent leg length discrepancy, while allowing immediate weight bearing without requiring bone fusion. However, there is a risk of infection. Read More

Clinical and radiological outcomes of total hip arthroplasty in patients affected by Paget's disease: a combined registry and single-institution retrospective observational study.

J Orthop Traumatol 2021 Mar 17;22(1):13. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

1st Orthopaedic and Traumatologic Clinic, IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, Via Pupilli, 1, 40136, Bologna, Italy.

Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients with Paget's disease can be associated with technical difficulties related to deformities and altered mechanical bone properties, and hypervascularity leads to significative intra-operative bleeding. The purpose of this registry and single-institution study was to investigate overall survival and causes of failure of THA in pagetic patients, together with an analysis of the clinical and radiological complications.

Material And Methods: Registry-based survival and complication analysis, type of fixation, intra- and post-operative complications, clinical (pharmacological history, blood transfusions, Harris hip score [HHS]) and radiographic (cup orientation, stem axial alignment, osteolysis around the cup and the stem and heterotopic ossification [HO]) data were reviewed.

Squeaking Is Common and Increases Over Time Among Patients With Long-term Follow-up After Ceramic-on-ceramic THA.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 04;479(4):736-744

K. Taniguchi, M. Quacinella, B. Barlow, Naval Medical Center San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA.

Background: Ceramic-on-ceramic (CoC) is a durable bearing with excellent wear characteristics, but squeaking remains a concern. The proportion of patients who report squeaking varies widely between studies performed at short- and mid-term follow-up.

Questions/purposes: (1) What proportion of patients treated with CoC THA bearings report squeaking at a minimum of 10 years of follow-up? (2) Are patient, implant, or radiographic factors associated with squeaking? (3) Are THAs that squeak more likely to be revised than those that do not? (4) Are patient-reported functional outcome scores lower between THAs that squeak and THAs that do not squeak at long-term follow-up?

Methods: Between January 1, 2003 and August 31, 2008 a total of 80 patients received THAs with third-generation alumina-on-alumina bearings at one center. Read More

Sci Rep 2021 Mar 10;11(1):5539. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Korea University College of Medicine, Anam Hospital, 73 Inchon-ro, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul, 02841, South Korea.

This study aimed to evaluate (1) the overall reasons for first revision in CoC THAs; (2) whether the reasons for revision differ between third-generation and fourth-generation CoC THAs; and (3) the specific factors associated with bearing-related problems as the reason for revision. We retrospectively reviewed 2045 patients (2194 hips) who underwent first revision THA between 2004 and 2013, among which 146 hips with CoC bearings underwent revision. There were 92 hips with third-generation ceramic bearings and 54 hips with fourth-generation ceramic bearings. Read More

Custom Implants in TKA Provide No Substantial Benefit in Terms of Outcome Scores, Reoperation Risk, or Mean Alignment: A Systematic Review.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 Feb 5. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

E. Beit Ner, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Yitzhak Shamir Medical Center, Zerifin, Israel, affiliated with the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Background: Failure to accurately replicate the native anatomy and biomechanics of the knee has been suggested to contribute to dissatisfaction after TKA. Custom implants promise a personalized surgical approach, with the aim of improving patient satisfaction and pain as well as lowering revision rates.
