Disabling injuries of the cervical spine in Argentine rugby over the last 20 years. (1/1592)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the incidence and risk factors of disabling injuries to the cervical spine in rugby in Argentina. METHODS: A retrospective review of all cases reported to the Medical Committee of the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) and Rugby Amistad Foundation was carried out including a follow up by phone. Cumulative binomial distribution, chi 2 test, Fisher test, and comparison of proportions were used to analyse relative incidence and risk of injury by position and by phase of play (Epi Info 6, Version 6.04a). RESULTS: Eighteen cases of disabling injury to the cervical spine were recorded from 1977 to 1997 (0.9 cases per year). The forwards (14 cases) were more prone to disabling injury of the cervical spine than the backs (four cases) (p = 0.03). Hookers (9/18) were at highest risk of injury (p < 0.01). The most frequent cervical injuries occurred at the 4th, 5th, and 6th vertebrae. Seventeen of the injuries occurred during match play. Set scrums were responsible for most of the injuries (11/18) but this was not statistically significant (p = 0.44). The mean age of the injured players was 22. Tetraplegia was initially found in all cases. Physical rehabilitation has been limited to the proximal muscles of the upper limbs, except for two cases of complete recovery. One death, on the seventh day after injury, was reported. CONCLUSIONS: The forwards suffered a higher number of injuries than the backs and this difference was statistically significant. The chance of injury for hookers was statistically higher than for the rest of the players and it was particularly linked to scrummaging. However, the number of injuries incurred in scrums was not statistically different from the number incurred in other phases of play.  (+info)

Ankle arthrodesis using an anterior AO T plate. (2/1592)

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)

Hypoglossal nerve injury as a complication of anterior surgery to the upper cervical spine. (3/1592)

Injury to the hypoglossal nerve is a recognised complication after soft tissue surgery in the upper part of the anterior aspect of the neck, e.g. branchial cyst or carotid body tumour excision. However, this complication has been rarely reported following surgery of the upper cervical spine. We report the case of a 35-year-old woman with tuberculosis of C2-3. She underwent corpectomy and fusion from C2 to C5 using iliac crest bone graft, through a left anterior oblique incision. She developed hypoglossal nerve palsy in the immediate postoperative period, with dysphagia and dysarthria. It was thought to be due to traction neurapraxia with possible spontaneous recovery. At 18 months' follow-up, she had a solid fusion and tuberculosis was controlled. The hypoglossal palsy persisted, although with minimal functional disability. The only other reported case of hypoglossal lesion after anterior cervical spine surgery in the literature also failed to recover. It is concluded that hypoglossal nerve palsy following anterior cervical spine surgery is unlikely to recover spontaneously and it should be carefully identified.  (+info)

Acute atraumatic compartment syndrome in the leg. (4/1592)

The compartment syndrome is well recognised as occurring after trauma, but atraumatic acute compartment syndrome is less widely known. We report 3 cases in whom an acute compartment syndrome developed without major injury. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment by decompressive fasciotomy is of vital importance if limb function is to be preserved and complications avoided.  (+info)

Arthroscopy of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. (5/1592)

We carried out 12 arthroscopies of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint in 11 patients over a five-year period. Their mean age was 30 years (15 to 58) and the mean duration of symptoms before surgery was eight months (1 to 24). Six patients had an injury to the joint; all had swelling and tenderness with a reduced range of movement. In six patients, radiographs revealed no abnormality. Under general anaesthesia with a tourniquet the hallux is suspended by a large Chinese finger trap to distract the joint. Using a 1.9 mm 30 degree oblique arthroscope the MTP joint is inspected through dorsomedial and dorsolateral portals with a medial portal if necessary. All patients were found to have intra-articular pathology, which was treated using small instruments. The mean follow-up was 19.3 months (6 to 62) and all patients had no or minimal pain, decreased swelling and an increased range of movement of the affected joint.  (+info)

Congenital convex pes valgus. (6/1592)

Congenital convex pes valgus (congenital vertical talus) is a rare condition. We reviewed ten feet in seven patients who had had surgical correction. All had been operated on by the senior author (JF) and the same surgical technique was used throughout, incorporating transfer of the tibialis anterior to the neck of the talus. The mean age at surgery was 31 months and the mean follow-up was nine years (6 to 14). All patients completed a questionnaire and had clinical, radiological and photographic evaluation performed by an independent examiner. None had required further surgery. All but one were satisfied with the result, and had no functional limitations. They all wore normal shoes. The mean ankle dorsiflexion was 17 degrees and plantar flexion 21 degrees. The mean arc of subtalar motion was 27 degrees. All radiological parameters measured were within the normal range, although irregularity of the talonavicular joint was common. No avascular necrosis of the body of the talus was seen. We conclude that the medium-term results of this procedure are very satisfactory.  (+info)

Autologous versus allogeneic transfusion: patients' perceptions and experiences. (7/1592)

BACKGROUND: Preoperative autologous donation is one way to decrease a patient's exposure to allogeneic blood transfusion. This study was designed to determine patients' perceptions about the autologous blood donation process and their experiences with transfusion. METHODS: To assess patient perception, a questionnaire was administered a few days before surgery to patients undergoing elective cardiac and orthopedic surgery in a Canadian teaching hospital. All patients attending the preoperative autologous donation clinic during a 10-month period were eligible. A convenience sample of patients undergoing the same types of surgery who had not predonated blood were selected from preadmission clinics. Patient charts were reviewed retrospectively to assess actual transfusion practice in all cases. RESULTS: A total of 80 patients underwent cardiac surgery (40 autologous donors, 40 nondonors) and 73 underwent orthopedic surgery (38 autologous donors, 35 nondonors). Of the autologous donors, 75 (96%) attended all scheduled donation appointments, 73 (93%) said that they were "very likely" or "likely" to predonate again, and 75 (96%) said that they would recommend autologous donation to others. There was little difference in preoperative symptoms between the autologous donors and the nondonors, although the former were more likely than the latter to report that their overall health had remained the same during the month before surgery (30 [75%] v. 21 [52%] for the cardiac surgery patients and 30 [79%] v. 18 [51%] for the orthopedic surgery patients). When the autologous donors were asked what they felt their chances would have been of receiving at least one allogeneic blood transfusion had they not predonated, the median response was 80%. When they were asked what their chances were after predonating their own blood, the median response was 0%. The autologous donors were significantly less likely to receive allogeneic blood transfusions (6 [15%] for cardiac surgery and 3 [8%] for orthopedic surgery) than were the nondonors (14 [35%] for cardiac surgery and 16 [46%] for orthopaedic surgery). They were, however, more likely to receive any transfusion (autologous or allogeneic) than were the nondonors (25 [63%] v. 14 [35%] for cardiac surgery and 31 [81%] v. 16 [46%] for orthopedic surgery). INTERPRETATION: Patients who underwent preoperative autologous blood donation were positive about the experience and did not report more symptoms than patients who did not donate blood preoperatively. Autologous donors overestimated their chances of receiving allogeneic blood transfusions had they not predonated and underestimated their chances after they had predonated. They were less likely to receive allogeneic transfusions, but more likely to receive any type of transfusion, than were patients who did not predonate.  (+info)

Impact of the introduction of a daily trauma list on out-of-hours operating. (8/1592)

The British Orthopaedic Association have recommended that all hospitals should have daily, consultant-led, trauma lists. We have prospectively examined the introduction of a daily trauma list on the out-of-hours operating and the management of trauma in one district hospital. The data collected were compared with a corresponding 6-month period in 1996. It was found that the mean usage of the list was 2 h 38 min; 10% of lists were not used. There has been a significant reduction in the number of operations performed out-of-hours, and also a significant reduction in the amount of out-of-hours operating after midnight. More complex cases have also been operated on in normal working hours. The initial introduction of a daily trauma list has had a significant impact on the total amount of out-of-hours operating and has increased consultant supervision of the management of trauma, thereby increasing the quality of care for these patients.  (+info)

A meniscus tear is an injury to the cartilage that stabilizes and cushions the knee joint. The type of tear often determines whether it can be repaired or not and the location of the tear will determine the type of procedure that will be used. Radial tears may be successfully repaired, depending on where they are located. Horizontal, flap, long-standing, and degenerative tears generally cannot be repaired. Your physician will recommend the treatment that he or she thinks will work best for you based on the zone where your tear is, the pattern of the tear, and how big it is. Your age, your health, and activity level may also affect your treatment options. In some cases, the surgeon makes the final decision during surgery, when he or she can see the how strong the meniscus is, where the tear is, and how big the tear is. Small tears at the outer edge of the meniscus often heal with rest and home treatment. Moderate to large tear at the outer edge of the meniscus more commonly require surgery to ...
Introduction: Acute upper gastrointestinal (UGI) bleeding is a relatively common emergency resulting in death in 6 to 8% of cases. UGI endoscopy is the intervention of choice which requires procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA). The Halifax Infirmary emergency department (ED) performs 1000 PSAs annually, performed by advanced care paramedics (ACPs). This has been shown safe for other indications for PSA, such as orthopedic procedures. Considering that UGI endoscopy involves upper airway manipulation, and patients are at an increased risk of massive bleeding, this procedure would be expected to be more complex and have an increased risk of adverse events (AEs). This study aims to compare PSA for UGI endoscopy performed by ACPs to that for orthopedic procedures for AEs, airway intervention and medication use. Methods: This study is a retrospective review of an ACP-performed ED PSA quality control database. A dataset was built matching 64 UGI endoscopy PSAs to 192 orthopedic PSAs by propensity ...

This studys objective was to identify adverse events following common orthopaedic procedures, and to estimate the incidence rates and risks of these events and their associations with age, sex, and comorbidities. This retrospective cohort study manually reviewed and extracted electronic medical data on the incidence and predictors of adverse events that occurred within 90 days of the 50 most frequent orthopaedic surgeries at an academic hospital in 2010. We also extracted demographic data, baseline comorbidities, and duration of follow-up (≤90 days). Patients were scored on the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) and the Functional Comorbidity Index (FCI). We estimated incidence rates and risks for all events and associations using regression methods. Prolonged pain 42-days post-surgery was treated as a separate outcome. We included 1,552 patients; average age was 53.4 years, and 51.7% were female. A total of 1,148 adverse events were identified in 729 patients. The incidence rate of all adverse events

The COVID-19 pandemic has required that the country take protective measures to prevent the spread of the disease. To this end, many hospitals have postponed elective surgeries to help ensure that their resources are available for severely ill patients who may need them.. An elective surgery is a procedure that is done for a medical condition that is not urgent or life-threatening. Many orthopedic procedures fall into this category. While an orthopedic condition may be painful or limit function, it is usually not life-threatening and surgery can be safely postponed.. Many hospitals are postponing elective surgeries to prepare for a spike in coronavirus cases. A delay in your surgery may be disappointing. You may have already asked for time off from work for the procedure or arranged for a friend or family member to help during your recovery at home. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unexpected national emergency and you may be asked to postpone your procedure until the crisis is ...
Dr. Max Greig Orthopedic Surgeon and PlacidWay have joined in a partnership to help worldwide patients get quality orthopedic procedures at accessible prices in Mexico.
Results. A total of 94 patients (7.4%) underwent any orthopedic surgery during their disease course, with a total of 114 surgeries; 47 (41.2%) of these surgeries were total joint replacement (TJR). The median time to first orthopedic procedure was 7.9 years from the onset of RA symptoms, and the rate of orthopedic surgery (excluding TJR) was 4.5 procedures per 100 person-years from the beginning of RA, while the rate of TJR was 2.25 interventions per 100 person-years. A higher risk of undergoing an orthopedic surgical procedure was associated with taking nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAID) in the previous 2 years, female sex, longterm disease, and the presence of extraarticular complications. The risk factors for undergoing a TJR were being old, having a longterm disease, and taking biologic therapies. ...
The orthopedic OR is configured with an operating table in the center of the room, with surgical lights and two additional monitor arms above.

There are more high-acuity orthopedic procedures going to the outpatient setting today, including total joint replacements. Orthopedic technology is developing for minimally invasive procedures, and new pain management protocol and post-surgical care allow patients to leave the outpatient centers within 23 hours after surgery. Its been a natural progression over many years where we have seen a gradual reduction in the duration of hospital stay after joint replacement, says Robert Greenhow, MD, of Peak Orthopedics & Spine in Lone Tree, Colo. This has been based on less invasive and improved surgical techniques, use of regional anesthesia and peri-articular injections, less tubes and drains and a reduction in the use of narcotics..

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The disease was discovered in 1983 in the Pasteur Institute, Paris by Barre and colleagues [1]. The causative agent is a Lentivirus, a subgroup of Retroviruses that is transmitted through body fluids. The main routes of entry include sexual intercourse, shared needles, and vertical transmission from mother to child during childbirth or breastfeeding. The World Health Organization (WHO) provides a staging system for HIV infection based on the clinical manifestations of the disease [2].. HIV/AIDS is encountered by orthopaedic surgeons when managing both orthopaedic and trauma cases. Cohen et al reported a prevalence rate of 16% amongst patients undergoing orthopaedic procedures in Zimbabwe [3]. HIV is also associated with a high incidence rate of Osteonecrosis. Chokotho et al evaluated the risk factors associated with the development of non-traumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head in HIV ...
The present study analyzed the profile of the request and use of blood products for elective surgeries in different specialties. Of the 822 procedures studied, 135 were transfused (16.4%), and in most surgeries, the requested blood products were not used, presenting a median of zero in both the total sample and each surgical specialty, even considering a postoperative period of up to 24 hours. However, among the specialties, cardiac surgeries had the highest transfusion rate, in which 50% of the patients in this specialty were transfused. This result was also reported by Stanworth et al. in 2002 (14), who observed higher transfusion rates in cardiac and orthopedic procedures; however, studies have shown that the demand for and use of RBCs in cardiac surgeries may vary between medical teams and between institutions (15).. In most transfused cases (87%), at least two units were used, a result similar to that obtained in Austria by Gombotz et al. (1) in a study with 6,530 patients, which ...
We examined data from the hospital episode statistics for the period April 2001 to March 2004 for all NHS hospitals in England and extracted records of patients aged ≥ 65 with a primary diagnosis of fractured hip (ICD-10 (international classification of disease, 10th revision) codes S720-S722) admitted from their home. We excluded those admitted from nursing and residential homes (using the source of admission field) to ensure a more homogeneous premorbid health status.3 Only a patients first admission for hip fracture was included. Patients were allocated to one of four treatment categories according to the first orthopaedic procedure (with an OPCS4 (operative procedure classification system code) beginning with W, if any) identified from an inspection of each procedure field in each episode in turn of the admission: fixation (W19, W20, W24, W25 covering primary open or closed reduction and internal or external fixation), prosthetic replacement of head of femur (W46-W48), any other procedure ...

Medicare spends about $20 billion each year on implantable medical devices - nearly half of it for orthopedic procedures. And as the population ages and more Americans get joint replacements, that number is only going up, which will have a bigger and bigger impact on the nations health care spending.. But orthopedic surgeons dont know much about how much their work contributes to that spending. They were only able to correctly estimate the cost of a device 21 percent of the time, according to a survey of 503 physicians at seven major academic medical centers published this week in Health Affairs. Their guesses ranged from 1.8 percent of the actual price to ...

Elective inpatient surgeries postponed, building access limited. LEWISTON, Maine-To ensure the safety of patients and staff during the rapidly evolving situation involving COVID-19, Central Maine Healthcare is postponing some elective surgeries and limiting access to its buildings, system officials said today.. Starting Monday, some elective surgeries involving overnight stays will be put off until the virus hazard has been reduced. This would include bariatric and some orthopedic procedures. Necessary or required surgeries-Caesarean sections and heart valve repair, for example, would proceed. Same-day procedures like endoscopy and colonoscopy and minimally invasive surgeries, where the patient goes home within several hours, will continue as scheduled. Providers are reaching out to patients with this information.. This new policy will reduce the number of inpatients at the systems hospitals and free up beds in the case of a surge of patients. It will also reduce the traffic in the hospitals, ...
The UBC engineering team discovered that certain models of hardware drills (available from standard hardware stores) have the same torque and rotation speed as the surgical drill that is sold at 300 times the price. Designed for the durability demands of a construction site, a hardware drill is an ideal solution for surgical care in low-resource setting. However, hardware drills cannot be sterilized in a steam autoclave.The team of engineers came up with a solution to this obstacle: a two-part sterilizable drill cover. The cover envelops the drill in medical-grade cloth funnelling into a surgical-grade stainless steel ring. The second part, a stainless steel interface, creates a perfect enclosure and allows adjustment for the various surgical attachments required for the orthopaedic procedures.

Anesthesia risks are always present (as they are in human medicine), but for most patients who are otherwise healthy - anesthesia risk is extremely low.. As with humans, arthritis is typically present to some degree at the time of surgery, and with time arthritis will progress in severity. However, it will be significantly reduced in comparison to the patient who suffers a CCL rupture that is not surgically repaired. Anti-inflammatory medications, glucosamine/chondroitin supplements (Dasuquin preferably), weight loss, and healthy activity levels all play a role in the treatment of arthritis.. (Note that for the remaining risks identified below - the pet owner will play a more critical role in reducing potential complications.). The risk of infection is typically the risk of highest concern in an orthopedic procedure such as the TPLO. With this in mind, our surgeons take every procedural precaution (antibiotics, sterilized environments, etc.) to properly manage this risk. Most infections that do ...

Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy), also know as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection, is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the bodys healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue.
Results A total of 3202 procedures were undertaken over 12 weeks with 163 (5.1%) lasting longer than 4 hours. The most common specialities were cardiac surgery (71/163, 43.6%), neurosurgery (23/163, 14.1%), hepatic and craniofacial surgery (13/163, 8.0% each).. In the detailed analysis of 50 patients, the pre-operative dose was administered within 60 minutes prior to incision in 45/50 (90%) cases. A repeat intra-operative dose was administered in 3 (6%) procedures. These were cardiac, neurosurgical and orthopaedic procedures. All repeat doses were administered approximately 4 hours after the initial pre-operative dose. ...
The therapy has enormous potential for treating back and neck pain, spinal disc injury, joint and muscle degeneration and could also speed up recovery following complex surgeries where bones and joints need to integrate with the body, Dr Mobbs said.. Research shows that up to 20% of spinal implants either dont heal or there is delayed healing. The rates are higher for smokers, older people and patients with diseases such diabetes or kidney disease.. Spinal implants currently used to replace damaged or troubled discs dont always weld with the adjacent bones, so by transplanting these reprogrammed stem cells, we hope to be able to better fuse these implants to the host bone, Dr Mobbs said.. This represents a potential huge leap forward for spinal and orthopaedic procedures.. Along with confirming that human adult fat cells reprogrammed into iMS stem cells can safely repair damaged tissue in mice, the researchers said further work is required to establish whether iMS cells remain dormant at ...
At the Kingdom, there was this young guy...who was racing his motorcycle on the freeway. He fell, got crushed, and was brought in to our trauma center. The surgeons patched him up, but after a month long ICU stay (and hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills paid for by you and me), he still couldnt walk. He had a pelvic fracture that required a special (complicated) orthopedic procedure to *possibly* correct his problem. There were only a couple of orthopods in the city who performed this procedure. The issue was, the complicated surgery was very labor intensive, time intensive, and the end-result was based largely on patient compliance...and evenso, the results were unpredictable. The surgeon was concerned that the patient: 1) wouldnt/couldnt pay him, so hed be working essentially for free. 2) then the patient is a dumbass, and will probably *not* be compliant with follow-up 3) and finally, when the results werent what the patient expects (which would be perfection and the ability ...
The risk of VTE in a hospitalized patient is hard to determine with certainty, because it varies widely depending on the ascertainment method. Studies relying on clinical diagnosis have found rates of 20% for deep venous thrombosis and 1% to 2% for PE after major surgical procedures in the absence of prophylaxis. Rates after certain orthopedic procedures are even higher. Studies using more aggressive observational methods (i.e., Doppler ultrasounds on every postoperative patient) have found much higher rates. It is not known how many of these asymptomatic clots would have caused clinical problems, but surely some would have. ...
Hip replacement surgery was first performed in 1960. Since then, it has become a common orthopedic procedure with more than 300,000 operations done each year in the United States.
Would you rather have a simple stem cell injection into your bum knee or knee replacement surgery? Orthopedic procedures like this are currently available in the U.S. as a standard practice of medicine at clinics in every major city. But the FDA wants to make it illegal; this represents another intrusion into the practice of medicine. Cell-based procedures that have been done for decades would no longer be possible.. Patients for Stem Cells (PFSC) started telling MD Monthly readers about stem cell therapy from the patients perspective in January 2015. PFSC told the history of the FDA removing access to this life-saving therapy that began in 1997, without the legally required public input, and the devastating impact this had on patients in 2012 when regulations went into effect.. Several of our members, who had treatments already in progress, had their progress and treatments halted. This launched our group on a mission to inform the public that everyones rights to this safe, effective therapy ...
We all know that bacteria - both helpful and harmful types - thrive in many parts of the body, including the mouth. Whenever circumstances make it possible for these microorganisms to enter the bloodstream, theres a slight risk that a bacterial infection may develop. This could occur in many dental procedures - and it could also occur during routine activities like chewing, brushing and flossing. In most cases, the risk is so small that the chance of a having bad reaction to antibiotics (while rare) is far greater than the chance of developing an infection; therefore, antibiotics arent routinely used.. Some people, however, need to take extra precautions before having dental procedures. If you have been treated for some types of heart disease, or have had certain orthopedic procedures (including total joint replacement), we may advise taking antibiotics to protect against even a remote chance of infection. Recommendations are made on an individual basis, taking into account your medical ...
Background/Purpose: Circulating multipotential stromal cells (MSCs) also termed mesenchymal stem cells have previously been implicated in fibroblast mediated polyarticular joint destruction in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We hypothesized that skeletal trauma (a biophysical process) rather than a biological basis related to RA may account for any MSC circulation. Methods: Deep (femoral) and matched peripheral (antecubital) vein blood was collected from 36 patients undergoing lower limb orthopaedic procedures. Peripheral blood was also taken from 15 early and 11 established RA patients as well as 12 healthy controls. Colony-forming unit-fibroblast (CFU-F) assays and cytometric phenotyping of cells were performed. Molecular characterisation of genes related to MSC function was undertaken in comparison to MSCs from iliac crest and femoral marrows, bone, periosteum, adipose tissue and dermal fibroblasts.. Results: 17/36 femoral vein samples contained CFU-Fs, but only 7/74 peripheral vein samples almost ...
