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)

Ankle Arthrodesis, also known as Ankle fusion is a surgery that is done to treat Arthritis. Generally, patients with end-stage arthritis require Ankle Arthrodesis. The ankle joint is also called the tibiotalar joint as it is where the tibia and the subtalar joint meets that is where 2 foot bones talus and the calcaneus meet. The objective of doing Ankle Arthrodesis is to obtain bony union between the tibia and talus. Intramedullary nailing is a generally accepted method for performing Ankle Arthrodesis. Griportho has developed a new Nailing system to provide the option for Ankle Arthrodesis.. ...
INTRODUCTION: Total wrist arthrodesis represents a reliable salvage procedure for severe painful conditions of the wrist. To date, wrist arthrodesis using a dorsal plate reaching from the distal radius to the third metacarpal is still recommended. A new implant (APTUS© 2.5 TriLock Wrist Fusion Plate, Medartis Suisse) that does not cross the third carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ-3) has been introduced recently. The purpose of this retrospective study was to compare both implants concerning early functional and clinical results.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 20 patients underwent total wrist arthrodesis [10, using the new APTUS© implant (APT); 10 using the Depuy-Synthes© LCP plates (AO)]. The postoperative control interval was 18.2 and 37.2 months in APT and AO, respectively. Clinical assessment included functional parameters such as active range of motion (AROM) for pronation and supination, grip strength, and passive range of motion of the CMCJ-3. Additionally the DASH score and the Krimmer ...

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)
Purpose: We aimed to describe the morphological changes in the thoracic cage and spinal column induced in New Zealand White (NZW) prepubertal rabbits subjected to dorsal arthrodesis and observed at skeletal maturity by computed tomography (CT) scans. This was done to evaluate the plasticity of the thoracic cage of rabbits with non-deformed spine, by highlighting its modifications after spinal arthrodesis. Emogas data analysis, echocardiographic assessment and cardio-pulmonary measurements completed the evaluation. Methods: Surgery was performed in 16 female rabbits, 6 weeks old. Nine were subjected to T1-T12 dorsal arthrodesis, while seven were sham-operated. Surgery involved the implant of two C-shaped stainless steel bars and heterologous bone graft. CT scans were performed before surgery, 2, 6 and 12 months after surgery. One week after the last CT scan, echocardiographic and emogas evaluations were performed. Results: Chest depth (8 %), thoracic kyphosis (ThK) (23 %), dorsal and ventral ...
I was born with congenital bone fusions throughout my body (feet, back, and feet), and have had numerous surgeries on all of the above. However, my feet/ankles have been suffering the most from my bone abnormalities insomuch that it became necessary at the prime of my youth 18 and then again at 19 to have Triple Arthrodesis (fusions of my ankle/ft bones together) surgeries on each of my feet respectively. To read more about this procedure, you can read it here: http://www.aofas.org/footcaremd/treatments/pages/triple-arthrodesis.aspx (Yes, that means I attended my senior yr of High School in a wheelchair). It was a painful process, but for about 6 years or so I was much better able to manage the pain that I had previously experienced on a daily basis. Now, being only 10 years later at the age of 28, X-rays show that arthritis has taken up residence in both of my ankles and the arthritis is continuously expanding because of the fusions due to the surgery; getting worse and worse.

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 ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A novel approach to juxta-articular aggressive and recurrent giant cell tumours. T2 - Resection arthrodesis using bone transport over an intramedullary nail. AU - Vidyadhara, S.. AU - Rao, Sharath K.. PY - 2007/4. Y1 - 2007/4. N2 - Aggressive juxta-articular giant cell tumours of the lower limbs occurring in young patients are a challenge to the average orthopaedic surgeon. Although it is the treatment of choice for these tumours, wide resection creates a problem for the reconstruction of large bone gaps. We describe our results after resection arthrodesis of such tumours using the technique of bone transport over a long intramedullary nail in 27 patients. This is the first and largest study of its kind in the management of giant cell tumours in the literature. All our patients fared well with this mode of treatment, and none had recurrence or major complications..

Introduction. End-stage ankle osteoarthritis is a debilitating condition. Traditionally, ankle arthrodesis (AA) has been the surgical intervention of choice but the emergence of total ankle replacement (TAR) has challenged this concept. This systematic review aims to address whether TAR or AA is optimal in terms of functional outcomes. Methods. We conducted a systematic review according to PRISMA checklist using the online databases Medline and EMBASE after January 1, 2005. Participants must be skeletally mature and suffering from ankle arthrosis of any cause. The intervention had to be an uncemented TAR comprising two or three modular components. The comparative group could include any type of ankle arthrodesis, either open or arthroscopic, using any implant for fixation. The study must have reported at least one functional outcome measure. Results. Of the four studies included, two reported some significant improvement in functional outcome in favour of TAR. The complication rate was higher in ...

The TARVA (Total Ankle Replacement versus Arthrodesis) Investigators meeting was held prior to the BOFAS AGM. TARVA stands for Total Ankle Replacement Versus Arthrodesis. The TARVA trial is a clinical trial for patients with ankle arthritis that are considering surgery. The main surgical treatments for end-stage ankle arthritis are ankle arthrodesis or total ankle replacement (TAR). Approximately 3,000 patients undergo ankle arthrodesis or TAR in the NHS each year. Both treatments are available on the NHS, and both have been reported to have good results. Some studies suggest that TAR restores a more natural walking pattern than ankle fusion but other studies have suggested that the ...

Scaphocapitate arthrodesis with lunate excision was performed for treatment of advanced Kienböck disease in 17 patients (18 wrists). Ten were women and seven men. Five were Lichtmann Stage IIIA, 12 Stage IIIB, and one Stage IV. Minimum follow-up period was 24 months; mean follow-up was 10.7 years (range 2.3 to 22 years, SD 7.1). At the latest follow-up, six patients were very satisfied, nine were satisfied and two were disappointed. Pain was significantly decreased in all cases. Wrist mobility was unchanged. Grip strength was significantly increased. Consolidation of the arthrodesis was confirmed in 17 wrists. We encountered a scaphocapitate nonunion at 12 years follow-up and two cases of styloscaphoid arthritis at 17 and 22 years. Scaphocapitate arthrodesis with lunate excision performed in an advanced stage of Kienböck disease significantly alleviates pain, while preserving functional mobility and satisfactory grip strength in the long term. ...

Why Zyga SImmetry Is More Effective Than Other SI Joint Fusions? A True SI Joint Arthrodesis (fusion) with the immediate stability of screw fixation. I wanted my SI joints to stay stable. When they were in neutral after every Chiropractic adjustment, euphoria would start to come over my body. Life was good but as the next 24 hours progressed so did the rotation of my iliums and the rest of the spinal segment compensatons and associated muscle tensions. Dont forget about the associated Piriformis Syndrome muscle spasm too causing Sciatica nerve pain in the buttocks, thighs and when really severe down the entire leg.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Calcaneotalotibial arthrodesis by retrograde intramedullary nailing using expert tibia nail for charcot osteoneuropathy of the foot. T2 - A case series. AU - Oesman, I.. AU - Asdi, A. 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 ...
Are Our Expectations Bigger than the Results We Achieve? A Comparative Study Analyzing Potential Advantages of Ankle Arthroplasty Over Arthrodesis. A recent study has concluded that patients who undergo total ankle arthroplasty (TAR) experience only minor functional improvements compared to those treated with ankle arthrodesis (AAD). The study involved 101 patients who underwent TAR and 40 who were treated with screw arthrodeses whose gaits and outcomes were analyzed and assessed during a follow-up exam. The study found that patients who were treated with TAR experienced significant improvements in pain compared to patients who underwent AAD, although patients in the TAR group experienced limited functional gains. Both procedures resulted in significant asymmetry in gait, reduced range of motion compared to normal, and improvements in outcomes as assessed by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) hindfoot score and the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS) questionnaire. Finally, ...

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 ...

This article presents the case of an 83-year-old woman with a peri-implant femoral fracture after hip arthrodesis in adolescence. Due to the rarity of such operations, there is no standardized approach for these cases. In order to secure the treatment goal of rapid pain-adapted full weight bearing despite reduced bone quality, it was decided to perform anew osteosynthesis with aretrograde femoral nail after removal of some fixation screws of the existing arthrodesis plate. Due to this type of treatment, the preservation of activity and independence of an older trauma patient could be sustainably secured despite operative challenges. Taking an extended osteoporosis treatment into consideration, a bony fracture consolidation and complete convalescence of activity and autonomy were ultimately achieved. ...

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 ...
