Ankle arthrodesis using an anterior AO T plate. (1/277)

We describe a surgical technique for ankle arthrodesis using an anterior approach to the ankle and internal fixation with an anteriorly-placed AO T plate. A total of 33 patients who had ankle arthrodeses have been followed retrospectively. Thirty-one (94%) of the ankles fused although two patients developed tibial stress fractures. Four patients had a superficial infection which did not prevent union. The surgical technique is simple, easily reproducible and gives excellent clinical results with a high rate of union.  (+info)

The orthopaedic aspects of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia. (2/277)

Five cases of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED) were treated from 1985-1996 at the Orthopaedics and Trauma Department of SSK Izmir Educational Hospital. Four patients were female and one was male. The pedigrees of the first two female patients had the same features of inter-related marriages. The patients have been followed up for 5.5-11 years (average of 7.5 years). Surgical operations were mostly required in the lower limbs. Problems in the hips required adductor myotomy, the Soutter procedure, total hip replacement, and pertrochanteric extension osteotomy. Management of the knees required supracondylar shortening and extension osteotomy of the femur, high tibial extension osteotomy, debridement of the knee joint with removal of osteophytes, ogleotomy of the patellar lengthening of the knee flexors and posterior capsulotomy. Interphalangeal arthrodesis for hammer toes, extension osteotomy of the head of the first metatarsals, and Kellers operation were carried out in the foot. In the upper limb decompression and anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve, debridement of the elbow joint, extension and valgus osteotomy of the distal radius, and extension osteotomy of the head of the first metacarpal were required.  (+info)

In vivo and in vitro CT analysis of the occiput. (3/277)

Arguments concerning the best procedure for occipito-cervical fusion have rarely been based upon occipital bone thickness or only based on in vitro studies. To close this gap and to offer an outlook on preoperative evaluation of the patient, 28 patients were analysed in vivo by means of spiral CT. Ten macerated human skulls were measured by means of CT and directly. Measurements were taken according to a matrix of 66 points following a grid with 1 cm spacing based upon McRae's line. Maximum thickness in the patient group was met 4 cm above the reference plane in the median slice (11.87 mm; SD 3.41 mm) and 5 cm above it in the skull group (15.85 mm; SD 1.81 mm). Correlation between CT and direct measurements was good (91.79%). Intra-individual discrepancies from one side to the respective point on the other side are common (difference > 1 mm in 60%). Judging areas suitable for operative fixation using the 10% percentile value (6.68 mm for the maximum value of 11.87 mm) led to the conclusion that screws should only be inserted along the occipital crest in an area extending from 1.5 cm above the posterior margin of the foramen magnum to the external occipital protuberance (EOP). At the level of the EOP screws may also be inserted up to 1 cm lateral of the midline. A reduction of screw length to 7 mm (9 mm for the EOP) is proposed. Preoperative evaluation of the patient should be carried out by spiral CT with 1 mm slicing and sagittal reconstructions.  (+info)

Spondyloptosis and multiple-level spondylolysis. (4/277)

An unusual case of a combination of multiple bilateral spondylolyses (L2, 3 and 4), spondylolisthesis at L3/4, spondyloptosis at L4/5 and sacralization of L5 in a teenage female is described. The patient had severely increasing lower back pain radiating to the left lower limb. Radiography identified the abnormalities and myelography revealed complete obstruction and compression of the thecal sac at the L4/5 level. The case was treated surgically by posterior decompression, corpectomy and fusion in a three-stage operation. The follow-up was extended to 2 years with no complications. No similar case has previously been reported.  (+info)

The 'MW' sacropelvic construct: an enhanced fixation of the lumbosacral junction in neuromuscular pelvic obliquity. (5/277)

Fixation to the lumbosacral spine to correct pelvic obliquity in neuromuscular scoliosis has always remained a surgical challenge. The strongest fixation of the lumbosacral junction has been achieved with either a Galveston technique with rods or screws or with iliosacral screws. We have devised a new fixation system, in which iliosacral screws are combined with iliac screws. This is made possible by using the AO Universal Spine System with side opening hooks above and below the iliosacral screws and iliac screws below it. The whole sacropelvis is thus encompassed by a maximum width (MW) fixation, which gives an 'M' appearance on the pelvic radiographs and a 'W' appearance in the axial plane. We report on our surgical technique and the early results where such a technique was used. We feel that this new means of fixation (by combining the strongest fixation systems) is extremely solid and should be included in the wide armamentarium of sacropelvic fixation.  (+info)

Vertical atlantoaxial dislocation. (6/277)

An unusual case of vertical atlantoaxial dislocation without medulla oblongata or spinal cord injury is reported. The pathogenic process suggested occipito-axial dislocation. The case was treated surgically with excellent results on mobility and pain.  (+info)

Subtalar arthrodesis with correction of deformity after fractures of the os calcis. (7/277)

We have reviewed the long-term results of 22 patients (23 fusions) with fractures of the os calcis, who had subtalar arthrodesis with correction of the deformity between 1975 and 1991. The mean follow-up was nine years (5 to 20). All patients were evaluated according to a modified foot score. A radiological assessment was used in which linear and angular variables were measured including the fibulocalcaneal abutment, the height of the heel and fat pad, the angle of the arch and the lateral talocalcaneal and the lateral talar declination angles. The technique used restores the normal relationship between the hindfoot and midfoot and corrects the height of the heel. This leads to better biomechanical balance of the neighbouring joints and gives a favourable clinical outcome. The modified foot score showed a good or excellent result in 51% of the feet. Residual complaints were mostly due to problems with the soft tissues. Subjectively, an excellent or good score was achieved in 78% of the cases. After statistical analysis, except for the height of the heel and the degenerative changes in the calcaneocuboid joint, no significant difference was found in the measured variables between the operated and the contralateral side.  (+info)

A population study in the Province of Ontario of the complications after conversion of hip or knee arthrodesis to total joint replacement. (8/277)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the complication rates after conversion of hip and knee fusions to total joint replacements in the Province of Ontario. DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study. PATIENTS: Those who had undergone an elective conversion of a hip or knee fusion to a total joint replacement during fiscal year 1993 through 1996, as captured in the Canadian Institute for Health Information and Ontario Health Insurance Plan databases. OUTCOME MEASURES: Inhospital complications and length of initial hospital stay, revision, infection, amputation and repeat fusion rates within 4 years. RESULTS: Conversion of hip and knee fusion to total joint arthroplasty was generally performed by high-volume surgeons in high-volume hospital settings. Forty hip and 18 knee replacements involved conversion of a previous fusion. Conversion of a hip fusion was associated with a 10% infection rate, a 10% revision rate and a 5% resection arthroplasty rate due to infection within 4 years of the conversion. Conversion of a knee fusion was associated with an 11% infection rate, and a more than 5% revision rate at 4 years. Over 16% of patients who underwent conversion of a knee fusion required removal of the components (for various reasons) within the first 4 years. CONCLUSIONS: There is a high rate of complications after conversion of a hip or knee fusion to a total joint arthroplasty. These issues must be carefully considered and discussed with the patient before any conversion procedure.  (+info)

What is Arthrodesis? Arthrodesis means the surgical fusion of a joint. In other words, the bones forming the joint are permanently joined together so that there is no movement in this part of the limb. Arthrodesis is a salvage procedure that is generally only performed when there are no other options to save the function of the joint. (Shoulder, elbow, carpal (wrist), stifle (knee), hock (ankle) and digit (toe) joints)

Arthrodesis is a surgical procedure performed to relieve arthritis pain. An alternative to joint replacement surgery, this procedure is also called joint fusion. It is typically performed on joints such as ankles, wrists or the spine. Arthrodesis is an option for those who severely suffer from arthritis and cannot manage pain through nonsurgical methods.. What to Expect During the procedure, the physician will position the joint-forming bones together with implanted pins, rods or screws in order to fuse the bones. A bone graft may be necessary for patients with significant bone loss. Once the joint is fused, the patient will experience more stability and less suffering from severe arthritis ...

Arthrodesis Also known as artificial ankylosis or syndesis, is the artificial induction of joint ossification between two bones via surgery. This is done to relieve intractable pain in a joint which cannot be managed by pain medication, splints, or other normally-indicated treatments. The typical causes of such pain are fractures which disrupt the joint, and arthritis. It is most commonly performed on joints in the spine, hand, ankle, and foot. Historically, knee and hip arthrodeses were also p…
Herbert P. von Schroeder, MD, MSc, FRCSC, University of Toronto Hand Program and Toronto Western Hospital, University Health Network, Toronto, ON.. Osteoarthritis is a highly prevalent and disabling condition of the hand in the geriatric population. It is commonly and effectively managed by surgical means. The interphalangeal joints and base of the thumb are most frequently involved, particularly in women, whereas post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the wrist is more common in men. Surgical procedures include simple debridement, soft tissue stabilization or osteotomies for milder cases. Joint arthroplasty, including excision procedures, and joint arthrodesis (fusion) are indicated for more severe arthritis. The type of procedure used depends on the location of the affected joint, patient age and physical demands placed on the hand. Surgery can effectively alleviate pain and improve hand function to improve an individuals quality of life ...

R.B.. PY - 2019. Y1 - 2019. N2 - Introduction: Charcot osteoneuroarthopathy (CN) is a progressive degenerative arthropathy determined by the interaction of neuropathy, osteopaenia and proinflammatory cytokines. The aim of treatment is to maintain the foot on plantigrade position, recover foot deformity, osseous stability, and prevent ulceration. Intramedullary fixation in calcaneotalotibial arthrodesis has been described in promotion of rigid internal fixation with minimal soft tissue violation producing deformity correction, minimal periosteal aggression, vascular damaged and good functional outcome, with less postoperative fusion time and able to achieve fusion of the ankle and the subtalar joint after failed fusion. Presentation of case: Two patients with charcot foot underwent tibiocalcaneal ...

BACKGROUND: Surgical strategies to address deformities of the ankle and hindfoot in patients with Charcot arthropathy include the use of retrograde intramedullary nails and ring fixators. The literature has not shown superiority of one technique over the other. This study presents a single surgeons case series of Charcot arthropathy patients treated with either a ring fixator or retrograde intramedullary nail to achieve tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 27 consecutive patients with Charcot arthropathy who underwent a tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using either a retrograde intramedullary (IM) nail (n = 16 patients) or a ring fixator (RF) (n = 11 patients) by a single surgeon ...

Recommendation XXV. In patients with knee osteoarthritis joint fusion can be considered when joint replacement has failed. This is a salvage procedure.. Joint fusion or knee arthrodesis is usually indicated when a total knee replacement becomes infected and is not reconstructable. Outcome evidence is based primarily on uncontrolled cohort studies. Patients can expect a stable knee, relatively pain free knee following joint fusion but will experience problems with function.. The research team gave this osteoarthritis treatment option a Strength of Recommendation score of 69%.. ...
Your ankle needs to be fully fused before you can drive. Please arrange for someone to take you home and look in on you in the first few days. You should rest and keep your leg elevated to control swelling. After 10 -14 days you will need to come back to have your stitches removed. You may be given a lighter weight cast. Be sure and take any pain medications as directed. Your surgeon may schedule regular x-rays to assess the extent of fusion. As the fusion gets stronger you may be allowed to start putting weight on your foot. You might need to work with a physiotherapist to learn to walk without a limp. You should plan on 10 to 12 weeks of recovery before returning to normal activities. Be sure and discuss any return to work with your surgeon. Once fusion is complete you may be given special shoe inserts or have your shoes fitted with rocker soles. Most patients make a good recovery from ankle fusion. Although you may not be able to run with a fused ankle you should be able to walk with a normal ...

Pain as well as rigidity in your affected joints throughout or after motion are typical, as are tenderness and swelling. In the early phases of osteo arthritis, you might just really feel discomfort as well as pain when you are using your joints, or when you awake in the morning. Some usual procedures include arthroplasty, the replacement of damaged joints with man-made ones, as well as arthroscopy, the cleaning and also repair of harmed joints. A much less common procedure is arthrodesis - the removal of the arthritic joint as well as the blend of 2 bones on each end of the joint ...

Ankle replacement, or ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged articular surfaces of the human ankle joint with prosthetic components. This procedure is becoming the treatment of choice for patients requiring arthroplasty, replacing the conventional use of arthrodesis, i.e. fusion of the bones. The restoration of range of motion is the key feature in favor of ankle replacement with respect to arthrodesis. However, clinical evidence of the superiority of the former has only been demonstrated for particular isolated implant designs. Since the early 1970s, the disadvantages of ankle arthrodesis and the excellent results attained by arthroplasty at other human joints have encouraged numerous prosthesis designs also for the ankle. In the following decade, the disappointing results of long-term follow-up clinical studies of the pioneering designs has left ankle arthrodesis as the surgical treatment of choice for these patients. More modern designs have produced better ...

Aim: To study patient-related functional outcome measures, implant survival and radiographic loosening after total wrist arthroplasty (TWA) using four different implants. To evaluate a new TWA design biomechanically and clinically.. Methods: The studies included two cohort studies with prospectively collected data (n=206 and n=219), an anatomic and kinematic analysis in a cadaveric model and a pilot study (n=20).. Results: The Maestro TWA had a significantly greater improvement of radial/ulnar deviation than the Biax and Remotion TWAs. Summarized patientrelated functional outcome was significantly better for the Maestro than for the Remotion TWA. Cumulative implant survival after 8 years was 94% for Remotion, and 95% for Maestro implants. Radiographic loosening five years postoperatively was present in 26% of the Biax wrists, 18% of those with Remotion, and 2% of those with Maestro. Following TWA with the new implant design in a cadaveric model, there were no statistically significant changes ...

The Activity Based Costing approach showed that the costs of the two instrument kits are very similar, even though differences were found in the sterilisation phase (that must be carried out only in the reusable devices) and the amortization costs supported for the reusable instrument kit, only considered for the first year of use of the technology, in line with the Italian administrative law (that requires the amortization of all the deferred costs, in the first year). The results from CEA and BIA highlighted a slight advantage for the innovative technology, in terms of CEV and costs savings.. Results reported a residual better performance of the innovative technology in terms of patients safety: this is amply justified in literature, reporting that a disposable instrumentation kit could reduce the incidence of surgical site infections [12], attributing this to a reduction in exposure to air-borne bacteria in the operating room.. With regard to the organisational impact, the introduction of ...

My name is Nicole. I have lived with severe relapsing bilateral club feet for 44 years. As an infant, I had multiple surgeries, braced, put in orthotic shoes, and casted for long periods of time. My mother says its a miracle that Im walking. My dad would have to duct tape my casts because I would wear them out pushing so hard to play and be normal. My last surgery was when I was 16 years old. Dr Swartz was contracted by the Army as a civilian doctor to treat orthopaedics. I was an Army brat!!! He spent 8 hours doing a bilateral triple arthrodesis with a second Achilles tendon lengthening. This surgery was life-changing. Once I recovered a year later. I was able to walk with a gate that was less noticeable and less likely to get the usual comments of "why do you walk like that?".. I was bullied terribly, but it has made me stronger. I have lived my life pushing for normalcy. I have managed to finish one and only half marathon, hike in many parts of the world, and ride my MTB in many places. I ...
There are two types of operation which are helpful for arthritic fingers: Fusing the joint (arthrodesis) or joint replacement (arthroplasty). These are day case operations which can usually be done by awake surgery using local anaesthetic. It could be that some patients will have more than one finger joint replacement in a single operation. A small incision is made in the finger, the damaged joint is removed and the artificial joint is inserted. The artificial joint is made of silicone plastic, metal or ceramic. It functions in the same way as a healthy joint, a bit like a hinge on a door, although the movement is typically about half the range in a healthy joint. Alternatively, fusing the joint means that it is set in a fixed position and no further movement is possible. Both types of operation reliably remove the pain from arthritis but of course have different results regarding the freedom of movement in the hand ...
The naviculocuneiform joint is a joint between the navicular bone and the cuneiform bones (Figure 1). The joint is located in the mid part of the foot, on the inside. Occasionally this joint may become arthritic or it may become excessively mobile in the case of a marked-acquired adult flatfoot deformity. In some instances, it may be beneficial to fuse this joint (arthrodesis).

Fusion rate was assessed using fine cut coronal CT scans. In total, 94% of patients achieved arthrodesis. The one-level fusion rate was 98% (78/80), the two-level fusion rate was 82% (22/27), and the three-level fusion rate was 100% (3/3). While the mean follow-up time for collection of radiological data was 24 months, evidence of fusion was demonstrated as early as three to six months post-surgery in some patients (43% of one-level, 44% of 2-level).. ...
Interphalangeal fusion or arthrodesis is a surgical technique for immobilizing the distal or proximal joints of hands or legs for the treatment of pain, deformity or instability of the joint resulting from degenerative, inflammatory or posttraumatic disorders such as hammertoe and arthritis.
A: Arthrodesis is the fusion of a joint. Bone graft is used most often around the joint to hold it together and keep it from moving. As the bone fills in around the bone chips used in the graft, a
There are multiple techniques for arthrodesis. The joint can be prepared with flat cuts or with conical reamers. Flat cuts are more technically demanding and have an increased risk of shortening the first ray. While conical reamers require specialised instrumentation, they allow more freedom to change first MTP alignment while maintaining bony contact. Fixation can include crossed lag screws or a lag screw with a dorsal plate (Fig. 5). Biomechanical testing has shown that a lag screw with a dorsal plate offers the most stable construct, although at the expense of increased cost of $604 versus $374 for crossed screws.36,37 While pre-contoured dorsal plates can offer a template to set first MTP dorsiflexion, correct positioning should be confirmed by examining toe-to-floor distance. Misplacement of these implants too proximally can lead to excessive dorsiflexion and radiographic analysis shows low correlation between the dorsal plate angle and toe-to-floor distance.38,39. Previous results for ...
Brownie was brought to Ohio and immediately seen by a vet. He was not using his back left leg and an X-ray showed that he originally fractured his pelvis and tibia. Over the past three month without treatment, his body healed but significant arthritis and degenerative changes were seen in the left knee. "It is likely that there was soft tissue injury as well as bone damage to the knee at the time of the car accident," said the shelter. The only way to save his leg was to fuse together the knee joint in a surgery procedure called arthrodesis. It would stabilize the knee and reduce pain, allowing him to run and play again. However, the surgery would cost thousands of dollars. ...

Almost everyone has heard of total hip replacement and total knee replacement. But fewer people are familiar with total ankle replacement (also called total ankle arthroplasty).. Although it looks like a simple hinge joint, the ankle actually involves much more complex movement, absorbing forces up to five times body weight. Many conditions, such as severe osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and post-traumatic arthritis, can cause degeneration of the ankle joint, leading to severe pain, swelling and immobility.. Until recently, the only choice to repair a degenerated ankle was to fuse the shin bone (tibia) to the top foot bone (talus), a procedure called ankle arthrodesis. This eliminated pain but left the ankle completely immobile.. When total ankle replacement (or TAR, for short) was first performed in the 1970s, the two-part prosthesis implanted was not very successful. Nowadays, ankle prostheses are made of three pieces of plastic and metal. While not perfect, they relieve pain and allow ...
The calcaneocuboid joint is the joint between the calcaneus and the cuboid bone. The ligaments connecting the calcaneus with the cuboid are five in number, viz., the articular capsule: the dorsal calcaneocuboid ligament, part of the bifurcated ligament, the long plantar ligament, and the plantar calcaneocuboid ligament. The calcaneocuboid joint is conventionally described as among the least mobile joints in the human foot. The articular surfaces of the two bones are relatively flat with some irregular undulations, which seem to suggest movement limited to a single rotation and some translation. However, the cuboid rotates as much as 25° about an oblique axis during inversion-eversion in a movement that could be called obvolution-involution.

Hallux valgus (HV) is a common deformity of the forefoot in which a deviation of the first metatarsophalangeal joint arises. HV has been described to be characterized by a number of structural factors including radiographic angles, metatarsal length, metatarsal head shape, sesamoid position, first metatarsocuneiform joint flexibility and pes planus. The etiology is not fully resolved. However, HV is associated with gender, age and family history. Moreover, it is limited to shoe-wearing cultures and dependent on footwear in adolescence and adult hood.
