The inferior capsular shift operation for instability of the shoulder. Long-term results in 34 shoulders. (1/392)

We reviewed 26 patients with 34 shoulders treated by the inferior capsular shift operation for inferior and multidirectional instability. The mean follow-up was 8.3 years. In total, 12 shoulders showed voluntary subluxation. Eight operations used an anterior and posterior approach, 11 were by the posterior route, and 15 shoulders had an anterior approach. In 30 shoulders (85%) the outcome was satisfactory and 20 (59%) scored good or excellent results on the Rowe system. Instability had recurred in nine shoulders (26%) from three months to three years after the operation. Six of the 12 shoulders with voluntary subluxation (50%) had recurrence, as against three of the other 22 (14%), a statistically significant difference. The operation is therefore not indicated for voluntary subluxation. The 19 shoulders which had been assessed in 1987 at a mean of 3.5 years after surgery, were also reviewed in 1995 and found to have no significant changes in instability or Rowe score. This shows that the capsular shift appeared to have maintained its tension over an eight-year period. After the use of a posterior approach, 64% of the shoulders showed a posterolateral defect on radiographs of the humerus.  (+info)

Genotyping for disease associated HLA DR beta 1 alleles and the need for early joint surgery in rheumatoid arthritis: a quantitative evaluation. (2/392)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the value of HLA DR beta 1 disease associated epitope (DAE) and erythrocyte sedimentation (ESR) in predicting the need for major joint replacement in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Sixty five RA patients who had undergone hip, knee or shoulder arthroplasty within 15 years of disease onset and 65 who had not. HLA DR beta 1 genotype was determined by polymerase chain reaction. ESR at first hospital visit was noted. RESULTS: Significantly more patients with two DAE required surgery, (32% v 9%), chi 2 = 13.9, p = 0.001, odds ratio = 5.4 (95% CI: 1.8, 16). Sensitivity was poor, 32%, specificity high, 91%. Presentation ESR was higher in surgery patients compared with non-surgery patients, 52 mm 1st h v 25 mm 1st h, p < 0.001, but was independent of DAE status. Sensitivity of an ESR of 30 mm 1st h was 75%, specificity 53%. CONCLUSION: The presence of two DAE is a risk factor for major joint surgery in RA and is independent of ESR, whereas in those with one or no DAE, a high ESR is an important predictor.  (+info)

The results of surgical treatment for osteoarthritis of the elbow in athletes were investigated. Athletic activities consisted mainly of judo wrestling and baseball; and included 26 elbows. The mean age was 32 years. The radiological changes were mild in most cases. Debridement consisted of resecting osteophytes and removing loose bodies. Pain scores were improved, and the range of movement was improved by an average of 24 degrees with an average follow-up of 4 years and 2 months. Recurrence of mild symptoms occurred in most cases.  (+info)

Colonna capsular arthroplasty: a 33-year follow-up of four patients. (4/392)

We evaluated the results of Colonna capsular arthroplasty in 4 patients with unilateral congenital dislocation of the hip. All of these patients were female, aged 10-14 years at the time of surgery, and 42-50 years at the time of follow-up. The most striking finding in this study was the good ability to walk. Although radiographs showed considerable joint degeneration, all of these patients had only mild to moderate pain in the hip.  (+info)

Trapeziectomy for basal thumb joint osteoarthritis: 3- to 19-year follow-up. (5/392)

A consecutive series of 40 trapeziectomies in 30 patients with basal thumb joint osteoarthritis was reviewed. Sixteen thumbs had pan-trapezial and 24 thumbs trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis. Simple excision without soft tissue interposition was performed by the same surgeon using an identical surgical technique. Twenty-eight patients were female (mean age 57 years) with a mean follow-up of 11 (3-19) years. Twenty-eight patients were satisfied with their operation, with 26 thumbs being pain free. Thumb pinch strength was improved by 40% compared to preoperative values, but still remained 22% weaker than the non-operated side.  (+info)

Treatment of the mobile, painful arthritic elbow by distraction interposition arthroplasty. (6/392)

Between 1986 and 1994, 13 patients with mobile painful arthritic elbows were treated by distraction interposition arthroplasty using fascia lata. The mean period of follow-up was 63 months. An elbow distractor/fixator was applied for three to four weeks to separate the articular surfaces and to protect the fascial graft. Nine of the 13 patients (69%) had satisfactory relief from pain; eight (62%) had an excellent or good result by the objective criteria of the Mayo Elbow Performance score. Four have required revision to total elbow arthroplasty at a mean of 30 months with good results to date. Instability of the elbow, both before and after surgery, was found to be associated with unsatisfactory results. The rate of success when the procedure was performed for inflammatory arthritis was similar to that for post-traumatic arthritis, about 67%. Eight complications occurred in six patients, all in the group with post-traumatic arthritis. Two of these required further surgical procedures such as transposition of the ulnar nerve or repair of hernia of the fascia lata. Although less reliable than prosthetic replacement, distraction interposition arthroplasty is a useful option in the treatment of young, high-demand patients with arthritis of the elbow. It is rarely indicated in the presence of generalised inflammatory arthritis, but may be of value in those patients in whom the disease is limited primarily to the elbow.  (+info)

Volar plate arthroplasty of the thumb interphalangeal joint. (7/392)

The fibrocartilaginous volar plate of the thumb interphalangeal joint is anatomically quite similar to the volar plate of the digital proximal interphalangeal joint. Due to this similarity, Eaton's technique of volar plate arthroplasty may also be utilized in fracture-dislocations of the thumb interphalangeal joint.  (+info)

Reconstructive surgery in primary malignant and aggressive benign bone tumor of the proximal humerus. (8/392)

Primary malignant bone tumors of the proximal humerus have traditionally been treated by forequarter amputation. However, with the increased interest in limb salvage operations, efforts have been made to improve reconstructive surgery and some methods have become available for tumor control and preservation of a useful distal limb. This report describes three reconstructive techniques used for reconstruction of the humerus following primary tumor excision. We followed 11 patients treated by reconstructive surgery following tumor excision for primary malignant and aggressive benign bone tumors in the proximal humerus. The average follow-up period was 35.6 months. The histologic diagnosis included osteosarcoma (9), chondrosarcoma (1) and giant cell tumor (1). The options for reconstructive surgery following tumor excision were six prosthetic arthroplasties with low heat treated autobone, four arthroplasties with Ender nail and bone cement, and one arthroplasty with custom-made tumor prosthesis. We performed a retrospective analysis regarding functional status, as well as local recurrence, distant metastasis and complication. The functional status at final follow-up averaged 16 points (53.3%) overall: 17 points (56.7%) in the six prosthetic arthroplasties with low heat treated autobone; 15 points (50.0%) in two of four arthroplasties with Ender nail and bone cement (the two others died); and 16 points (53.3%) in the one arthroplasty with custom-made tumor prosthesis. Local recurrence was not observed in any of the cases. The complications noted were one nonunion between reimplanted, low heat treated autobone and the normal distal humerus and two metal failures. Each of these techniques for reconstructive surgery resulted in a relatively good outcome, although somewhat better results were found in the case of prosthetic arthroplasty with low heat treated autobone.  (+info)

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 ...

Risk Factors for Osteoarthritis. There are several factors linked to the development of Osteoarthritis according to The National Institute of Health (NIH) these are:. Age - By reaching 45 or older raises your risk of degenerative arthritis.. Women - For unclear reasons, about 16 million women have osteoarthritis, out of a total of 21 million Americans who suffer from the disease. And though more men than women develop it before age 45, after that, degenerative joint disease becomes far more common in women.. Heredity - Genetic factors account for at least 50% of osteoarthritis of the hands and hips, and a smaller percentage in the knees. Certain inherited conditions such as being born with defective cartilage or malformed joints can also contribute to degenerative arthritis.. Obesity - People who are more than 10 pounds overweight have a higher risk for osteoarthritis, especially in weight-bearing joints like the knees. Pressure on joints from the excess weight causes cartilage to break down ...

You guys liked my last story about by pain in the ass but pretty good guy dad, so heres another one. You might want to skip this if discussion of medical procedures bothers you.. As I mentioned in the last post, the old man was a country doctor. He did some surgery, and delivered many (~3,000) babies. When he was in his prime, he was deft with his hands, and fast. Now that hes in his late 80s, he has degenerative arthritis everywhere, and his hands arent what they used to be. For example, when I was home a year ago, I had some stitches that had to be removed, and I basically ended up doing it with his direction because he couldnt do it. This is a minor procedure he would have done in a minute, tops, when he was in his prime.

With the development and progress of Chinese joint surgery, we should also notice that most of our surgical techniques are imported from abroad. It would be dangerous if we just take these as "techniques" and be satisfied with repeating them skillfully. Only through continuous creative investigation of theoretical systems, surgical techniques, and development of innovative instruments, can we achieve rapid and substantial development of arthroplasty.. Regional balance of arthroplasty development: Currently, many joint surgeons in some large hospitals have transferred their focus from primary arthroplasty to more complicated primary cases or revision cases. On the contrary, in the economically underdeveloped areas or municipal hospitals, there is often no specialized arthroplasty surgeon available. This regional imbalance requires us to not only strengthen the standardized training system of arthroplasty techniques, but also establish and improve the joint surgery access system.. Standardization ...

This population based study of people with moderate-severe osteoarthritis shows that undergoing an elective primary total joint arthroplasty within three years of initial assessment was associated with a significant 40% reduction in subsequent risk of serious cardiovascular events in patients who survived until the landmark date (three years from the baseline questionnaire). This translated into an absolute risk reduction of 12.4% and a number needed to treat of 8 over a seven year follow-up period. Although our study was observational, we were able to show this effect after accounting for a large number of cardiovascular risk factors and potential confounders using propensity matching. To our knowledge, this is the first study to demonstrate a possible cardioprotective benefit of total joint arthroplasty.. There are several potential explanations for our findings. Total joint arthroplasty may improve capability for physical activity. It has been shown to improve walking distance and physical ...

At FOREs arthroplasty conferences, surgeons can learn how to more efficiently evaluate surgical candidates, select the most appropriate prosthetic devices for surgery, implement newer techniques for greater surgical precision and implement strategies for postoperative rehabilitation. Participants can also learn about surgical alternatives and how to most effectively implement these treatments.. Additionally, at many conference events, classroom-based education is supplemented with arthroscopy workshops and hands-on bioskills labs, enabling participants to put principles into practice. As a result, its even easier for clinicians to apply what they learn at FOREs CME events to their own orthopedic practices. Non-surgical professionals (e.g., nurses and physical therapists) are also welcome to attend these conferences to learn strategies for their own approach to patient care..

Degenerative arthritis is a condition that slowly wears away joints. In the beginning, you may notice that the affected joint seems stiff. It may even ache. As the joint lining (cartilage) breaks down, the bones rub against each other, causing pain and swelling. The effects of arthritis can be reduced.

Instability is one of the symptoms associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis of the wrist joint. The instability which is caused by weakened ligaments as well as worn cartilages makes the carpal bones to move freely, causing a painful condition. Wrist arthroplasty is one of the treatments for severe cases of Rheumatoid Arthritis of the wrist joint. This project involved biomechanical analysis of wrist arthroplasty with and without bone graft in terms of its ability to provide carpal stability for replacement of the joint severely affected with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The clinical symptoms of the skeletal disease such as the pathological changes of the bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendon as well as the load transfer were used to accurately simulate the wrist joint affected with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Load simulating the gripping action of the joint was applied to the models. Results showed that the fixation of the wrist arthroplasty associated with bone graft had less displacement with sufficient amount ...

Background and purpose - The number of shoulder registries increases. We assessed international trends in use of shoulder arthroplasty, and described the current state of procedure selection and outcome presentation as documented in national and regional joint registries. Methods - Published reports from 9 population-based shoulder arthroplasty registries (country/region: Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, Denmark, California, Australia, Emilia-Romagna, Germany, and United Kingdom) were analyzed. Data were extracted on age, sex, disease indication, type of surgical procedure, surgical volume, and outcomes. Results - Shoulder arthroplasty incidence rate in 2012 was 20 procedures/105 population with a 6-fold variation between the highest (Germany) and lowest (United Kingdom) country. The annual incidence rate increased 2.8-fold in the past decade. Within the indications osteoarthritis, fracture, and cuff-tear arthropathy variations in procedure choice between registries were large. Outcomes evaluation focused

Hallux rigidus, meaning "stiff big toe," is a type of degenerative arthritis affecting the joint located at the bottom of the big toe (the metatarsophalangeal joint). This condition causes the joint to stiffen and become painful, eventually making it difficult to walk, stand up, bend, squat and run. Hallux rigidus may occur as a result of structural abnormalities, heredity, traumatic injury, or underlying disease conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout.
Background: Diagnosis of loosening of total wrist implants is usually late using routine radiographs. Switching modality to computed tomography (CT) should aid in early diagnosis. Purpose: To propose and evaluate the accuracy of a new CT method for assessing loosening of the carpal component in total wrist arthroplasty. Material and Methods: A protocol encompassing volume registration of paired CT scans of patients with unexplained pain in a prosthetically replaced wrist (used in clinical routine) is presented. Scans are acquired as a dynamic examination under torsional load. Using volume registration, the carpal component of the prosthesis is brought into spatial alignment. After registration, prosthetic loosening is diagnosed by a shift in position of the bones relative to the prosthesis. This study is a preclinical validation of this method using a human cadaverous arm with a cemented total wrist implant and tantalum markers. Seven CT scans of the arm were acquired. The scans were combined ...

To date, this term has not been defined exactly in hip arthroplasty. Whereas some experts believe that the point is to remove as little bone as possible, i.e., to replace the surface, the majority appears to agree that the extent of the damage to muscles and soft tissue represents the criterion for minimal invasiveness. As a direct consequence, accelerated rehabilitation can be deduced and expected from reduced damage of the soft tissues. As nice as a short incision in the skin may be, by itself it is not suitable as a criterion for the invasiveness of an operation.. Minimally invasive hip surgery in arthroplasty thus primarily describes the access to the joint, which leads through two neighboring muscles and does not damage these during the procedure (so-called intermuscular access). When surgery is performed in this way and suitable implants and instruments are used, it is indeed possible to realize skin incisions of less than 10 cm, and a surprisingly fast course of rehabilitation is common. ...
Total wrist replacement (wrist arthroplasty) is performed when arthritis pain is severe, and has not responded to other treatments. Both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis cause pain, and both can affect finger and hand strength, making it difficult to pinch or grip.

The goal of arthroplasty is to restore the function of a stiffened synovial joint and relieve pain. As a surgical procedure, it is usually performed when medical treatment has not improved function in the affected joint. There are two types of arthroplastic surgery: joint resection and interpositional reconstruction. Joint resection involves removing a portion of the bone from a stiffened joint, increasing the space between the bone and the socket to improve the range of motion. Scar tissue eventually fills the gap, narrowing joint space again. Pain is relieved and motion is restored, but the joint is less stable. Interpositional reconstruction is surgery to reshape the joint and add a prosthetic disk between the two bones forming the joint. The prosthesis can be made of plastic, metal, ceramic material, or formed from such body tissue as skin, muscle, or fascia. When interpositional reconstruction fails, total joint replacement may be necessary. Joint replacement is also called total joint ...

Osteoarthritis, or degenerative arthritis, is a gradual breakdown of cartilage in the joints. Osteoarthritis of the knee can severely impact a persons lifestyle.
Where I get a little agitated about physicians (including MDs, DOs and DCs) descriptions of disc compression is when they call a disc bulge or protrusion a disc "herniation". These are two different diagnostic entities. Here is why: A disc compression will be an out-pouching or more generally a literal bulging of the annual fiber (the 50 to concentric rings of the support structures of the outer disc material). This can be analogized to the classic radial tire on your car whereby if you see the interior, youll find a mesh of cord structures that are wound together to create strength. So the disc compression can cause the typical and most common bulging of the disc, especially commonly seen in typical degenerative arthritis of the spine. This is in contrast to a herniation whereby there will be a significant localized out-pouching of the disc where a particular stress or injury to the spine causes a localized injury or disruption of the annular fibers themselves. The difference is that a ...
