Percutaneous osteoplasty for the treatment of a painful osteochondral lesion of the talus: a case report and literature review. (5/11)

An osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT) is a lesion involving the talar articular cartilage and its subchondral bone. OLT is a known cause of chronic ankle pain after ankle sprains in the active population. The lesion causes deep ankle pain associated with weight-bearing, impaired function, limited range of motion, stiffness, catching, locking, and swelling. There are 2 common patterns of OLTs. Anterolateral talar dome lesions result from inversion and dorsiflexion injuries of the ankle at the area impacting against the fibula. Posteromedial lesions result from inversion, plantar flexion, and external rotation injuries of the ankle at the area impacting against the tibial ceiling of the ankle joint. Early diagnosis of an OLT is particularly important because the tibiotalar joint is exposed to more compressive load per unit area than any other joint in the body. Failure of diagnosis can lead to the evolution of a small, stable lesion into a larger lesion or an unstable fragment, which can result in chronic pain, joint instability, and premature osteoarthritis. A 43-year-old man, with a history of ankle sprain one year previously, visited our pain clinic for continuous right ankle pain after walking or standing for more than 30 minutes. There was a focal tenderness on the posteromedial area of the right talus. Imaging studies revealed a posteromedial OLT classified as having a geode form according to the FOG (fractures, osteonecroses, geodes) radiological classification and categorized as a stage 2a lesion on magnetic resonance imaging. The patient was scheduled for aspiration and osteoplasty with hydroxyapatite under arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance. A 26-gauge needle was inserted to infiltrate local anesthetics into the skin over the cyst and ankle joint. An arthroscope was placed into the joint to approach the OLT. The arthroscopic view showed that there was no connection between the OLT and the cyst of the talus body. A 13-gauge bone biopsy needle was inserted into the cyst, and aspiration was performed. Aspirated fluid from the cyst was originally white and clear; however, it changed to a blood-tinged, reddish color due to mixing with the incisional blood. After aspiration, contrast medium was injected, and the shape of the spread was observed. Bone cement comprising hydroxyapatite was injected to fill the bone defect of the cyst. A 1.5 mL volume of cement was injected into the talus under vigilant fluoroscopic and arthroscopic monitoring to prevent its dissemination into the joint. There was no cement leakage into the vessels or articular space. Postoperative fluoroscopy and computed tomography images showed bone cement filling of the defect. In the present case, arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance was used for aspiration of an OLT and for performing percutaneous osteoplasty with hydroxyapatite for one defect; this treatment decreased pain upon weight bearing and enabled a return to work without any restrictions one week after the procedure. The purpose of this report was to highlight the presence of OLT in chronic ankle pain and to review its management strategies.  (+info)

Adult degenerative scoliosis can be a result of scoliosis from childhood. The curvature may increase during adulthood and become painful. Scoliosis that happens in childhood is usually idiopathic, meaning there is no known reason for it.Any part of the spine can be affected by scoliosis including the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar vertebrae. Most often the lumbar spine is affected. The vertebrae curve to one side and may rotate, which makes the waist, hips, or shoulders appear uneven.. The most common cause of adult degenerative scoliosis is from degeneration, known as wear and tear. Itusually occurs after the age of 40. In older women, it is often related to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the loss of calcium in the supporting bone. This makes the vertebrae weak. In adult degenerative scoliosis, the spine loses its structural stability and becomes unbalanced. This imbalance of the spine causes changes in the way the forces of the spine are directed. The larger the scoliotic curve becomes, the ...
Noticing some of the existing challenges of cementoplasty for palliation and consolidation of bone metastases, Dr. Deschamps developed a new percutaneous treatment approach for bone metastases located in the pelvis or proximal femur. He named the technique Fixation by Internal Cemented Screw (FISC), which aimed to improve resistance to torque and tension stresses caused by cement augmentation.. Dr. Deschamps originally developed this approach for bone metastases located in the proximal femur, which he demonstrated had better consolidation compared to cementoplasty alone. Based on these promising results, he expanded to consider pelvic indications. Dr. Deschamps then published a full review of the technique to describe the procedures steps as well as the different possible tracks and complications. In 2019, he published a study with the largest worldwide cohort of cancer patients who were treated by percutaneous FICS for pathological fracture pain palliation with a long-term follow up.. His ...
Spinal collapse treatment. Coloured frontal X-ray of the lumbar spine of a 56-year-old patient being treated for a collapsed spinal vertebra. Three spinal bones (vertebrae, square blocks) are seen here, with the vertebral processes protruding on either side. The vertebra at centre (the L2 vertebra) has been injected with an acrylic bone cement (dark blue) to prevent it from collapsing. This treatment is known as vertebroplasty, or cementoplasty. The collapse of a vertebra can be caused by conditions such as osteoporosis or bone cancer. In the case of bone cancer, cementoplasty also helps to relieve the severe pain caused by the cancer. - Stock Image M700/0176
The challenge for physicians is that anticoagulants used for PCI often increase the risk of bleeding, especially at femoral access points in the thigh. A multi-site study led by a Miller School cardiologist has provided the first clinical application of a unique drug system that consists of an anticoagulant which thins the blood, and a control agent which then quickly reverses the process after the intervention.. Mauricio G. Cohen, M.D., associate professor of medicine in the Cardiovascular Division, led the Phase IIa study which he calls an important milestone in the search for safer anticoagulants for patients undergoing procedures in the catheterization lab. The study results are published in the July 26 online issue of Circulation, a journal of the American Heart Association.. The study represented the first clinical application of REG1, a unique RNA drug system made up of an anticoagulant/blood thinner (RB006) and a control agent (RB007) to reverse anticoagulation. The REG1 system, ...

Introduction. Controlled oxygenated rewarming of cold stored livers by machine perfusion demonstrated a strong protective effect in preclinical studies. Here we report on the first clinical application of this new concept in a pilot series of 6 marginal donor grafts.. Methods. Between 03/2014 and 05/2014 six distally procured livers from DBD-donors, which had been rejected by other transplant centers were subjected to the controlled rewarming protocol before transplantation. Immediately after arrival in our transplant center the hepatic artery and portal vein were cannulated. Gentle rewarming of the graft was effectuated thereafter by pressure controlled oxygenated machine perfusion (MP) via portal vein and hepatic artery (Organ Assist, Groningen, NL) while gradually increasing perfusate temperature up to 20°C. Custodiol-N was used as preservation solution. Real-time biochemical analysis of perfusate parameters was carried out in constant time intervals during the controlled ...

Several signs of scoliosis in an adult are the same as those in an adolescent. Patients with scoliosis might notice that one shoulder appears to be higher than another. They might have an uneven waist and notice that their hips are not in line. One side of the body may show a prominence in the rib cage, and one shoulder blade may be more prominent than another. Scoliosis can make the torso tilt to one side and can even result in the legs seeming to be of unequal lengths.. Since scoliosis is a sideways curve, it is not usually obvious when viewing a patients profile. However, adults with scoliosis may lean forwards in order to try to stretch out the back, especially if a nerve in the spine is being pinched.. Patients with Adult Degenerative Scoliosis often experience back pain. The pain is usually located in the lower back (ie the lumbar region). In some cases, adults with scoliosis may also notice shooting pain in their legs.. While adult degenerative scoliosis may cause modest problems in many ...

This topic calls for first in human studies and Phase I/II clinical trials of targeted radionuclide therapy (TRT) for cancer using novel radiopharmaceuticals or TRT treatment strategies as described in the project goals below.. TRT enables personalized cancer treatment by combining the therapeutic effect of radiation therapy with the targeting capability of molecularly targeted agents, such as antibodies used for biologically targeted therapy or immunotherapy. In TRT, a cytotoxic dose of a radioactive isotope is attached to a tumor-targeting agent that binds to malignant tumor cells selectively. For instance, the ability of the antibody to bind only to a tumor-associated antigen ensures that the tumor gets a lethal dose of radiation, while normal tissue gets only a minimal dose. This minimizes toxicity to normal tissues and can increase therapeutic efficacy (therapeutic index).. The first clinical application of TRT was the treatment of thyroid cancer with radioactive iodine, and the field of ...

Related News. THE SPECIALIST: DR. SEAN MCCANCE ON ADULT DEGENERATIVE SCOLIOSIS. As co-director of orthopedic spine surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center, McCance diagnoses patients with spine disorders and spends much of his week in the operating room. In spine surgery for 13 years, McCance performs more than 250 operations annually.. WHOS AT RISK:. Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that can lead to impingement and back pain. It is very common, though in most cases the curves are small enough that they produce no symptoms and go undiagnosed. Some studies have shown that as much as 5% of the population may have scoliosis, many of them with milder curves so they dont even know, says McCance. Adult degenerative scoliosis usually affects people in their 40s or 50s who start developing a curvature of the spine because of disk degeneration. Due to arthritis, the joints become loose or lax, and the spine starts to collapse, leading to curvature of the spine and compression of the nerves, ...
BACKGROUND: Measurement of skin oxygen is of great interest in diverse fields of medicine. Different pathologies, e.g. infection, ischemia cancer or chronic wounds show a characteristic oxygen distribution and skin oxygen tension. Additionally diverse operative procedures require a reliable postoperative monitoring in order to ensure success of the therapy. OBJECTIVE: Aim of this study was to assess transepidermal oxygen flux for postoperative wound monitoring after operative treatment of fractures close to the hip. METHODS: 22 patients underwent transepidermal oxygen flux measurement at the first postoperative day. Transepidermal oxygen flux measurement was performed using ratiometric luminescence imaging. Examination was conducted in close proximity to the operation wound. The corresponding area at the contralateral side served as reference. RESULTS: Oxygen flux in the operation area was higher (0.084 +/- 0.021) than the contralateral side (0.071 +/- 0.029). CONCLUSIONS: Transepidermal oxygen ...
Our results suggest that nearly complete factor IXa inhibition, achieved with a single intravenous RB006 bolus, can support elective PCI, a finding that has not been documented previously. RB006 provided a rapid, reproducible, and stable pharmacodynamic response that was measurable with a point-of-care coagulation monitoring device used routinely in the catheterization laboratory. This study was the first to investigate the administration of a highly specific and rapid active control agent to achieve a desired intensity of anticoagulation after PCI. Partial reversal of RB006 allowed a graded or controlled stepdown in anticoagulation after PCI with a defined sheath removal time, whereas complete RB006 reversal allowed sheath removal immediately after PCI, both without complications.. Factor IXa is a vitamin K-dependent protein and an appealing anticoagulation target. Factor IX is activated early after vascular injury and assembles with factor VIIIa on the platelet surface to form a highly ...

Background Cavernous carotid arteriovenous fistulas (CCFs) are a relatively rare but fairly well documented intracranial vascular pathology. The most frequently utilized approach to treatment is endovascular embolization, via either transvenous or transarterial approaches, in order to close the venous outflow or limit the arterial inflow. The adopted standard algorithm to these options is to first attempt mapping a venous tract for catheterization. Frequently, the morphology of the venous drainage is in-sufficient for catheterization. Trans-arterial embolization is typically reserved for these instances given the well documented risks, including cranial nerve injury which approaches a 10% overall risk of complication. A third and less commonly used alternative for treating these difficult CCFs involves direct percutaneous access to the fistula. There are few published case reports documenting this direct access method, including our previous work describing a case in which we treated a clival ...

Basic research in plasma medicine has made excellent progress and resulted in the fundamental insights that biological effects of cold atmospheric plasmas (CAP) are significantly caused by changes of the liquid environment of cells, and are dominated by redox-active species. First CAP sources are CE-certified as medical devices. Main focus of plasma application is on wound healing and treatment of infective skin diseases. Clinical applications in this field confirm the supportive effect of cold plasma treatment in acceleration of healing of chronic wounds above all in cases where conventional treatment fails. Cancer treatment is another actual and emerging field of CAP application. The ability of CAP to kill cancer cells by induction of apoptosis has been proved in vitro. First clinical applications of CAP in palliative care of cancer are realized.\\[4pt] In collaboration with Hans-Robert Metelmann, University Medicine Greifswald; Helmut Uhlemann, Klinikum Altenburger Land GmbH Altenburg; Anke ...
Between January 8-11, 2013, 150 medical students from Swiss Universities joined one of the two fracture courses held in German and French at the AO Center Davos. These popular two-day courses are organized annually to give interested fourth to sixth year medical students a first insight into the principles of osteosynthesis. The students from the Universities of Bern, Basel, Zurich, Lausanne and Geneva were instructed and supported by the experienced surgeons Dr Christian Ryf from Davos Hospital, Dr Raphael Jenni from the Cantonal hospital in Chur, Dr Stefan Hefer from the Chablais hospital in Monthey, as well as other qualified AO surgeons. Besides basic theoretical knowledge, practical aspects were addressed, while particular emphasis was put on the treatment of common snow sports injuries. In the popular hands-on trainings, all participants practiced the different osteosynthesis techniques using various plates, screws and nails on synthetic bone models. The correct handling of the surgical ...

This week, Canada is celebrating Gender Equality Week and the strides that have been made towards a vision of a gender equal society. Gender equality doesnt just advance the well-being of women, but benefits people of all genders through peace and security, economic prosperity, health, and happiness.. In Canada, were lucky to have universal healthcare, but there are some startling facts that reveal how women arent always accessing the highest quality healthcare. Prior to the 1990s, women were not included in most medical research studies. Women are more likely to report severe and long-lasting pain, but are typically treated less aggressively than men and their pain is often dismissed as psychological or psychosocial. 270,000 women worldwide die from cervical cancer annually despite it being an entirely preventable disease.. As the BC Womens Health Foundation, our vision is healthy women everywhere, capable of anything. Here are the reasons why health equity should matter to everyone.. As ...

Background. Oncological patients with invasive fungal infections (IFI) have a high mortality. Many of them are treated empirically with wide spectrum antifungals (AF). They are an interesting target for antifungal stewardship programs. The aims of our study were to analyze the characteristics and appropriateness of the use of restricted antifungals (used as empirical and targeted therapy) in oncologic patients and to identify potential targets for antifungal stewardship (AFS) interventions. Methods. We performed a retrospective study, including all patients receiving candins, voriconazole, posaconazole and L-AmB, during suspicion of an IFI episode from September 2011 until September 2014 in a tertiary care center. Patients receiving fluconazole were excluded. To evaluate the adequacy of AF use, we scored from 0 to 10 considering: indication, drug selection, dosage, adjustment to microbiological results, switch to oral route and duration of therapy according to local guidelines. Results. In our ...
