Quantitative assessment of the morphology of the pig's head used as a model in surgical experimentation. Part 1: Methods of Measurements. (1/1315)

Thirty-two surface measurements were described for assessment of the effect of complex surgical operations on the skeleton of the face in pigs. The methods of measurements imitate those of anthropometry. The surface measurements can complement cephalometry with data about the changes in the soft tissue and thus improve the documentation of the effect of surgery. This paper can help in the evaluation of complicated osteotomy procedures using the pig as the animal model, for facial reconstruction research in humans.  (+info)

Long-term results of spherical acetabular osteotomy. (2/1315)

We have examined the effect of the Wagner spherical acetabular osteotomy on preserving the joint in 38 hips with a mean follow-up of 17 years. At the time of the initial operation, 55% of patients had clinical symptoms and 30 joints showed minimal or absent radiological signs of osteoarthritis. At follow-up, 54% of patients had a good functional result. The osteotomy improved the mean centre-edge angle from -3 degrees to +15 degrees, the mean anterior centre-edge angle to 23 degrees and the acetabular head index to 75%. The obliquity of the acetabular roof decreased from 28 degrees to 16 degrees. One patient improved, but 14 deteriorated with joint degeneration. Of these, one progressed because of postoperative deep-tissue infection and five due to undercorrection. One patient needed total joint replacement after 14 years. At 17 years after operation, Wagner osteotomy had prevented progression of secondary arthritis in 63% of cases.  (+info)

The orthopaedic aspects of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia. (4/1315)

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)

Malunion in the lower limb. A nomogram to predict the effects of osteotomy. (5/1315)

Nomograms derived from mathematical analysis indicate that the level of malunion is the most important determinant of changes in the moment arm of the knee, the plane of the ankle and alterations in limb length. Testing in five patients undergoing reconstruction showed a mean error of postoperative limb length of 2.2 mm (SD 0.8 mm), knee moment arm of 4.7 mm (SD 3.3 mm) and ankle angle of 2.6 degrees (SD 2.3 degrees). These nomograms provide the information required when assessing whether a particular degree of angulation may be accepted.  (+info)

Anatomical changes in the pelvis after modified Chiari pelvic osteotomy. (6/1315)

Although plain X-ray analysis is able to reveal anatomical changes in the frontal plane of the pelvis after Chiari pelvic osteotomy involving medial displacement (medialization) in the distal fragment and lateral displacement (lateralization) in the proximal fragment, changes in the horizontal or sagittal plane can not be discerned. Here, I have investigated three dimensional changes in the pelvis using CT in 22 patients before and after Chiari pelvic osteotomy. The various changes were investigated. Medialization in the distal fragment (average 0.4 cm) occurred in the 14 cases and to a slight extent in the other 8 cases. Also anterior or posterior displacement, and anterior rotation occurred in the distal fragment. Lateralization in the proximal fragment (average 0.8 cm) occurred in 19 cases and to a slight extent in the other 3 cases. Furthermore, the acetabular coverage over the femoral head, assessed by superimposing the acetabular region over the femoral head, improved by about 30% of the anterior half of femoral head and by about 20% of the posterior half of femoral head. It is suggested that the acetabular coverage over the femoral head is most affected by lateralization in the proximal fragment.  (+info)

Lumbar osteotomy for correction of thoracolumbar kyphotic deformity in ankylosing spondylitis. A structured review of three methods of treatment. (8/1315)

OBJECTIVES: Three operative techniques have been described to correct thoracolumbar kyphotic deformity (TLKD) resulting from ankylosing spondylitis (AS) at the level of the lumbar spine: opening wedge osteotomy, polysegmental wedge osteotomies, and closing wedge osteotomy. Little knowledge exists on the indication for, and outcome of these corrective lumbar osteotomies. METHODS: A structured review of the medical literature was performed. RESULTS: A search of the literature revealed 856 patients reported in 41 articles published between 1945 and 1998. The mean age at time of operation was 41 years, male-female ratio 7.5 to 1. In 451 patients an open wedge osteotomy was performed. Polysegmental wedge osteotomies were performed in 249 patients and a closing wedge osteotomy in 156 patients. Most of the studies primarily focus on the surgical technique. Technical outcome data were poorly reported. Sixteen reports, including 523 patients, met the inclusion criteria of this study, and could be analysed for technical outcome data. The average correction achieved with each surgical techniques ranged from 37 to 40 degrees. Loss of correction was mainly reported in patients treated by open wedge osteotomy and polysegmental wedge osteotomies. Neurological complications were reported in all three techniques. The perioperative mortality was 4%. Pulmonary, cardiac and intestinal problems were found to be the major cause of fatal complications. CONCLUSION: Lumbar osteotomy for correction of TLKD resulting from AS is a major surgery. The indication for these lumbar osteotomies as well as the degree of correction in the lumbar spine has not yet been established. Furthermore, there is a need for a generally accepted clinical score that encompasses accurate preoperative and postoperative assessment of the spinal deformity. The results of this review suggest that the data from the literature are not suitable for decision making with regard to surgical treatment of TLKD resulting from AS.  (+info)

Rotational acetabular osteotomy (RAO), Chiari osteotomy and shelf procedure are important treatments to delay the progression of osteoarthritis in developmental dysplasia of hip (DDH) patients, but their biomechanical differences are still unknown. This study was to evaluate the different biomechanical changes of hip joint after these three surgeries. Sixteen DDH models of 8 human cadaver specimens were reconstructed, and treated by different surgeries, and then strain around femoral head was evaluated by strain gauges. Hip strain value of DDH model was decreased after treated by shelf procedure (Pleft = 0.016 and Pright = 0.021) and rotational acetabular osteotomy (P = 0.004), but not in Chiari osteotomy (P = 0.856). Moreover, the improved ratio of RAO treatment was better than shelf procedure (P = 0.015) and Chiari osteotomy (P = 0.0007), and the descendent range of shelf procedure was greater than Chiari osteotomy (P = 0.018). From biomechanics points, RAO was more effective in relieving hip joint

Three different tibial osteotomy gaps (6, 8, and 10 mm) were created in 10 cadaveric models, and the pressure in the tibiotalar and talofibular joints was measured under axial load before and after fibular osteotomy. The heel alignment angle and talar translation ratio were evaluated radiographically. An increase in osteotomy gap led to increases in hindfoot valgus (p = .001) and the contact and peak pressures in the talofibular joint (p = .03 and p = .004). In contrast, the contact and peak pressures in ...

BACKGROUND: Accelerated rehabilitation protocols for medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOW HTO) using intraosseous implants have not previously been described. The present study provides early clinical and radiological outcomes of MOW HTO using a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) intraosseous system, in combination with an early weight-bearing protocol.. METHODS: Twenty consecutive knees (17 patients) underwent navigated MOW HTO using a PEEK implant with accelerated rehabilitation. Time to union and maintenance of correction were assessed radiographically for 12 months post-operative. Patient outcomes were monitored for a mean follow-up of 38 months (range 23-42) using standardised instruments (WOMAC, IKDC and Lysholm scores).. RESULTS: All knees were corrected to valgus. The mean time to unassisted weight-bearing was 55 days (SD 24, range 21-106). Bone union occurred in 95% of knees by 6 months, with correction maintained for 15 knees at 12 months post-operative. Knees for which correction ...

Our e-learning platform contains high resolution images and a certified CME of the Hallux valgus: Basal osteotomy using Arthrex Low Profile Locking Proximal Opening Wedge Osteotomy Plate surgical procedure.
This study aimed to assess the mechanical static and fatigue strength provided by the FlexitSystem plate in medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomies (MOWHTO), and to compare it to six previously tested implants: the TomoFix small stature, the TomoFix standard, the ContourLock, the iBalance, the second generation PEEKPower and the size 2 Activmotion. Thus, this will provide surgeons with data that will help in the choice of the most appropriate implant for MOWHTO. Six fourth-generation tibial bone composites underwent a MOWHTO and each was fixed using six FlexitSystem plates, according to standard techniques. The same testing procedure that has already been previously defined, used and published, was used to investigate the static and dynamic strength of the prepared bone-implant constructs. The test consisted of static loading and cyclical loading for fatigue testing. During static testing, the group constituted by the FlexitSystem showed a fracture load higher than the physiological loading of slow

An osteotomy method includes attaching a patient-specific osteotomy guide to a corresponding surface of a tibia of a patient and making an osteotomy at a patient-specific orientation through a resection slot of the osteotomy guide. The osteotomy guide is removed and first and second faces of the osteotomy are opened to form an implant insertion angle. The first and second faces of the osteotomy are secured at the implant insertion angle and an osteotomy implant having a patient-specific wedge angle that is smaller than the implant insertion angle is implanted. The first and second faces of the osteotomy are brought to the patient-specific wedge angle and in contact with the osteotomy implant.
Generally, surgeon-driven musculoskeletal evaluation systems are used for evaluating outcomes of patients who are treated with high tibial osteotomy. In this study, we investigated the effects of high tibial osteotomy using circular external fixator on quality of life. Twenty-one high tibial osteotomy of 19 patients were evaluated. Quality of life assessment was made using Short Form -36 at preoperative, before fixator removal and 6 months after fixator removal. After applying fixator, the physical function and physical role scores of Short Form-36 decreased and emotional role score did not improve. In other categories, significant improvements were observed when fixator in place. At the sixth month after fixator removal, significant improvements were dedected in all categories of Short Form-36. Although there was a decrease in physical functions after fixator application in patients who were treated with high tibial osteotomy using circular external fixator, significant improvement occurred in quality
Distal femoral varus osteotomy is a well-established procedure for the treatment of lateral compartment cartilage lesions and degenerative disease, correcting limb alignment and decreasing the progression of the pathology. Surgical techniques can be performed with a lateral opening-wedge or medial closing-wedge correction of the deformity. Fixation methods for lateral opening-wedge osteotomies are widely available, and there are various types of implants that can be used for fixation. However, there are currently only a few options of implants for fixation of a medial closing-wedge osteotomy on the market. This report describes a medial, supracondylar, V-shaped, closing-wedge distal femoral osteotomy using a locked anterolateral proximal tibial locking plate that fits anatomically to the medial side of the distal femur. This is a great option as a stable implant for a medial closing-wedge distal femoral osteotomy ...

A new technique in oblique incomplete high tibial osteotomy that permits an increase of valgus correction while preventing fracture of the medial cortex was investigated. Closing wedge or opening wedge osteotomy was done on 23 tibias from cadavers before loading in an Instron testing machine. In seven specimens (Group 1), lateral oblique wedge osteotomy was done. In seven other specimens (Group 2), one medial oblique cut was made. In both groups, the osteotomy terminated 10 mm from the cortex and approximately 2 cm below the plateau. In nine specimens (Group 3), the osteotomy terminated in a 5-mm diameter hole, drilled in an anteroposterior direction, with its center positioned 10 mm from the medial cortex and 2 cm below the articular surface. The maximum angle of opening or closing before fracture of the cortex took place was recorded. In Groups 1 and 2, similar maximum correction angles were observed, 6.7 degrees versus 6.5 degrees, respectively. In Group 3, the stress relieving hole allowed ...
Achieving precise implant alignment is crucial for producing good outcomes after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We introduce a simple method for confirming the accuracy of tibial osteotomy during TKA. Two metallic markers were placed on the skin 20 cm apart, one on the tibial tuberosity and other on the tibial crest, points that are easily identified and palpated intraoperatively. Anteroposterior radiographs of the legs were obtained. We defined the line along the markers as the tuberosity line. The osteotomy line is perpendicular to the anatomical axis of the tibia. We then calculated the angle between these two lines and designated it the osteotomy angle. We set the osteotomy angle of the protractor, and cut the bone parallel to the osteotomy line of the protractor. Postoperatively, we analyzed the varus angle of the tibial osteotomy in 35 TKAs using the protractor. The average of the varus angle of the tibial osteotomy was 89.4° ± 1.6° (95% confidence interval of −1.0976, 0.0119). There was no
Corrective lower limb osteotomies are innovative and efficient therapeutic procedures for restoring axial alignment and managing unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis. This review presents critical insights into the up-dated clinical knowledge on osteotomies for complex posttraumatic or congenital lower limb deformities with a focus on high tibial osteotomies, including a comprehensive overview of basic principles of osteotomy planning, biomechanical considerations of different implants for osteotomies and insights in specific bone deformity correction techniques. Emphasis is placed on complex cases of lower limb osteotomies associated with ligament and multiaxial instability including pediatric cases, computer-assisted navigation, external fixation for long bone deformity correction and return to sport after such osteotomies. Altogether, these advances in the experimental and clinical knowledge of complex lower limb osteotomies allow generating improved, adapted therapeutic regimens to treat congenital

TY - JOUR. T1 - Results of total knee arthroplasty after failed proximal tibial osteotomy for osteoarthritis. AU - Katz, M. M.. AU - Hungerford, D. S.. AU - Krackow, K. A.. AU - Lennox, D. W.. PY - 1987/1/1. Y1 - 1987/1/1. N2 - The cases of twenty-one consecutive patients who had a minimally constrained total knee arthroplasty (six of whom had a cemented and fifteen, an uncemented prosthesis) after a failed proximal tibial osteotomy for osteoarthritis were compared with those of a non-consecutive group of twenty-one patients who had had a primary total knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis. The groups were matched according to age and sex of the patient, type of prosthesis and fixation, and length of follow-up. At an average length of follow-up of 2.9 years, a good or excellent result was obtained in 81 per cent of the patients who had had a previous osteotomy. At an average length of follow-up of 2.8 years, a good or excellent result was obtained in 100 per cent of the patients who had had a ...
This retrospective study assessed the radiographic results of 16 patients with avascular necrosis following treatment for developmental dislocation of the hip (DDH) who were subsequently treated between 1991 and 2005 by rotation acetabular osteotomy (RAO) combined with femoral intertrochan-teric osteotomy (FIO). Initial treatment was by Pavlik harness, cast fixation, or overhead traction. The parameters that showed consistent improvement were the index of centralization, the index of acetabular coverage, adequate reduction of the greater trochanter, and abductor sufficiency. The combined procedure appears to be effective in cases in which preoperative planning shows a reasonable expectation of congruency and osteoarthritis is limited to the early stages. ...
Background The most notable change in the treatment of fractures has been the shift from the mechanical aspects of internal fixation with absolute stability and primary bone union as the goal to the biological aspects of internal fixation with relative stability and healing with callus as the preferred method, with a huge focus on preservation of the blood supply of bone and soft tissue to ensure the continued vitality of the individual fragments to improve fracture healing. Percutaneous plate fixation minimizes soft tissue compromise with decreased incidence of wound breakdown and deep infection. It also preserves the vascularity of the bone fragments, and thus reduces the time for union, decreases the need for bone grafting even in comminuted fractures, and also decreases the incidence of nonunion, which requires a second major open intervention. Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis for the treatment of high-energy tibial shaft (upper ...

Two hundred forty consecutive PSO (n = 156) and VCR (n = 84) procedures in 237 patients were performed at a single institution ...
The accuracy of targeted lower limb alignment correction following HTO is closely related to patients pain relief and knee joint survival time. How to accurately perform osteotomy and how to obtain the ideal target limb alignment to maximize the curative effect are the difficulty in HTO practice. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the predictive and application value of osteotomy master software (OsteoMaster) in coronal plane preoperative planning of high tibial osteotomy. Sixty-seven patients with medial compartment osteoarthritis and varus deformity treated by medial open-weight high tibial osteotomy were enrolled and divided into observation group (31 cases) and control group (36 cases). The observation group was planned by OsteoMaster, while the control group was planned by Miniaci. The preoperative predicted values of osteotomy depth, open height, correction angle, WBL ratio, and FTA of the observation group were compared with the actual intraoperative values to study their accuracy.

F.. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - One hundred thirteen knees with medial gonarthrosis in 95 patients were treated by valgus-producing proximal tibial osteotomy and followed clinically and roentgenographically for a minimum of five years (mean, 6.3 years). Sixty-four knees (57%) were pain free or had only mild discomfort when walking. The standing femorotibial angle decreased from a postoperative average of 9.3°valgus to 7.8°valgus at the final follow-up examination. The tendency for varus recurrence greater than 5°and for medial- or lateral-compartment arthritic progression was evaluated using the Kaplan-Meier survival method. Varus recurred in 18%, lateral-compartment arthritic progression in 60%, and medial-compartment arthritic progression in 83% by nine years after surgery. The probability of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Osteotomy for clinodactyly. AU - Goldfarb, Charles A.. AU - Wall, Lindley B.. PY - 2015/6/1. Y1 - 2015/6/1.

Patients typically tolerate clinodactyly without functional limitation, but with increasing deformity, they may have difficulties with specific tasks such as playing musical instruments. In those who do not tolerate the deformity, surgical options include physiolysis for young patients and osteotomy for older patients. An opening wedge osteotomy increases finger length while correcting the coronal deformity. Surgical results of the opening wedge osteotomy are satisfying and complications are rare, with stiffness of the distal interphalangeal joint noted in some patients..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Calcaneal-cuboid-cuneiform osteotomy for the correction of valgus foot deformities in children. AU - Rathjen, Karl E.. AU - Mubarak, Scott J.. PY - 1998/11/1. Y1 - 1998/11/1. N2 - We performed combination calcaneal-cuboid-cuneiform osteotomies in 18 patients (26 feet) with severe valgus foot deformity. The operation consists of a sliding calcaneal osteotomy, an opening-wedge cuboid osteotomy, and a pronation, plantar flexion closing-wedge osteotomy of the medial cuneiform in addition to appropriate soft-tissue releases. The preoperative goals of restoring the axis of the foot parallel to the axis of progression and relieving pain, as well as shoe, brace, and skin problems, were met in 23 of the 24 feet available for review at an average of 18 months after surgery. This procedure has the advantage of localized correction of deformity without the problems associated with arthrodesis.. AB - We performed combination calcaneal-cuboid-cuneiform osteotomies in 18 patients (26 feet) with ...
High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is intended to transfer the mechanical axis from medial to slightly lateral to the midline of the knee to decrease the load and subsequently delay osteoarthritis. Some studies showed that regenerative process began after realignment. HTO was considered as an option to treat an isolated medial compartment in varus knees. HTO became more popular in young active patients after improvement in surgical technique, fixation devices, and patient selection with fewer complications. Jindal Medi Surge High Tibial Osteotomy System are made from medical grade raw material. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Arthroscopic findings in knees undergoing proximal tibial osteotomy.. AU - Ilahi, Omer A.. AU - Stein, Joshua D.. AU - Ho, David M.. AU - Bocell, James R.. AU - Lindsey, Ronald. PY - 2008/1. Y1 - 2008/1. N2 - This study determines the occurrence of significant, arthroscopically correctable intraarticular pathology at the time of valgus-producing high tibial osteotomy for symptomatic medial compartment arthrosis with varus malalignment. Thirty consecutive patients (32 knees) scheduled for the procedure underwent concomitant knee arthroscopy. In the lateral compartment, meniscal tears occurred in 16 knees (50%), unstable chondral flaps in 4 knees (13%), and loose bodies in 3 knees (9%). In the anterior compartment, unstable chondral flaps occurred in 10 knees (31%). In the medial compartment, meniscal tears occurred in 29 knees (91%). The 5 knees with mechanical symptoms did not demonstrate a higher occurrence of loose bodies, chondral flaps, or meniscal tears compared with knees ...
The goal of this master thesis is to design, manufacture and test a new orthopaedic surgical instrument which will be used during pelvic osteotomies. The concerned osteotomy is the Salter osteotomy which consists of a reorientation of the pelvis thanks to a bone cutting. The bone cutting is performed along the innominate line. This surgery increases the covering of the femoral head and in this way decreases the risks of hip dislocation and degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis. The patients are most of the time children aged between 18 months and six years with acetubular dysplasia. The acetabulum is the part of the pelvis in which the femoral head is positioned. The thesis begins with a clinical context in which the acetabular dysplasia is described with its different treatments. The challenges of these treatments are presented. The main challenge of the Salter osteotomy is the passage of the Gigli saw through the greater sciatic notch; that means the passage of the saw around the bone ...
High tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pressure on the damaged site of an arthritic knee joint. It is usually performed in arthritic conditions affecting only one side of your knee and the aim is to take pressure off the damaged area and shift it to the other side of your knee with healthy cartilage. During the surgery, your surgeon will remove or add a wedge of bone either below or above the knee joint depending on the site of arthritic damage.. High tibial osteotomy is commonly used for patients with osteoarthritis that is isolated to a single compartment (unicompartmental osteoarthritis). It is also performed for treating a variety of knee conditions such as gonarthrosis with varus or valgus malalignment, osteochondritis dissecans, osteonecrosis, posterolateral instability, and chondral resurfacing.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Torsional stability of intramedullary compression nails. T2 - Tibial osteotomy model. AU - Brown, Nicholas A.T.. AU - Bryan, Nathaniel A.. AU - Stevens, Peter M.. PY - 2007. Y1 - 2007. N2 - Background: Studies comparing intramedullary compression nailing to conventional dynamized intramedullary nailing contend that better clinical outcomes of intramedullary compression techniques result from greater rotational stability of fracture or osteotomy sites. However, there appears to be no experimental evidence that rotational stability is improved with intramedullary nail compression. This study evaluated the effect of intramedullary nail compression on cadaveric and composite tibial fragment rotation above and below a mid-tibial transverse osteotomy. Methods: Twelve composite and four matched pairs of human cadaveric tibiae were randomized into either a compression group or a non-compressed dynamized group. A bi-axial servo-hydraulic testing machine applied 5 N m of internal and ...
Background Management of the patella in revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is challenging as a result of the deficient or unusable bone stock for patellar resurfacing that is frequently encountered. Options proposed in this setting include various patelloplasty procedures, patellectomy, and special patellar components. We sought to better define the role and results of one patelloplasty procedure, the gullwing osteotomy, used in revision TKA.. Questions/purposes (1) How much improvement in the outcome measures of range of motion and Knee Society scores was seen after revision TKA with a gullwing osteotomy? (2) What are the radiographic results of this osteotomy as judged by patellar healing and patellar tracking? (3) What complications are associated with the gullwing osteotomy in revision TKA?. Methods Between December 2003 and July 2012, we used a gullwing osteotomy on patients undergoing revision TKA (n = 238) in which the patellar remnant was avascular or less than 12 mm thick. This ...
Purpose The purpose of this study was to quantify changes in knee loading in the three clinical planes, compensatory gait adaptations and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) resulting from opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). Methods Gait analysis was performed on 18 participants (19 knees) with medial osteoarthritis (OA) and varus alignment pre- and post-HTO, along with 18 controls, to calculate temporal, kinematic and kinetic measures. Oxford Knee Score, Knee Outcome Survey and visual analogue pain scores were collected. Paired and independent sample tests identified changes following surgery and deviations from controls. Results HTO restored frontal and transverse plane knee joint loading to that of the control group, while reductions remained in the sagittal plane. Elevated frontal plane trunk sway (p = 0.031) and reduced gait speed (p = 0.042), adopted as compensatory gait changes pre-HTO, were corrected by the surgery. PROMs significantly improved (p ≤ 0.002). Centre of ...
Tramadol applied via the drinking water is a commonly used analgesia in the mouse osteotomy model. Another opioid that can be used is buprenorphine. The recommendation for tramadol in the drinking water was increased 40-fold by the GV-SOLAS from 2010 to 2015. A recommendation on buprenorphine is given for injection but not for the application in the drinking water. Nevertheless, some standard operating procedures are found on buprenorphine applied via the drinking water. Model-specific recommendations on pain management in the mouse osteotomy model are not available. In the current study, three pain management protocols, two dosages of tramadol and buprenorphine applied via the drinking water in the mouse osteotomy model were tested. This refinement project was integrated into a basic research study. The aim of this project was to provide researchers with a specific recommendation on pain treatment in bone-linked mouse models. The three pain management protocols (tramadol 0.1 mg/ml, tramadol 1 ...

BACKGROUND: Trochanteric osteotomies (TO) facilitate exposure and true hip reconstruction in complex primary and revision total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, non-union represents a clinically relevant complication. The purpose of the present study was to identify risk factors for trochanteric non-union. METHODS: All cases of THA approached by TO during the past 10 years were analyzed with respect to potential risk factors for non-union. RESULTS: In 298 cases complete data were available for analysis. Trochanteric union occurred in 80.5%, fibrous union in 5.4% and non-union 14.1%. Risk factor analysis revealed a four times higher risk for non-union in anterior trochanteric slide osteotomies compared to extended trochanteric osteotomies and a three times higher risk in cemented versus non-cemented stems. Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed patients age and use of cement to be independent risk factors for non-union. CONCLUSIONS: Femoral cementation and increasing age negatively ...
BACKGROUND: From 1979 to 2005, a total of 279 hips in 249 patients with advanced and/or terminal-stage osteoarthritis of the hip underwent valgus osteotomy. Among them, we reviewed 256 hips in 229 patients (91.8%) with a minimum follow-up of 1 year.
PURPOSE: Patients with neuro-orthopaedic disorders often develop hip flexion contractures or rotational hip deformities. Increasing deformities impair the already diminished walking abilities and proximal femoral osteotomies are often performed to maintain/improve walking abilities. Fixation of the osteotomies with condylar plates has been successfully used but does often not allow immediate postoperative full weight bearing. To avoid a substantial postoperative rehabilitation deficit and additional bone loss due to inactivity, a postoperative treatment with full weight bearing is, therefore, wishful. Newer fixed-angled implants with stronger anchoring in osteopenic bone might fit these demands. The objective of this study was to evaluate bone healing and the complication rate after proximal extending and/or derotational femoral osteotomy fixed with 3.5/4.5 Locking Compression Plate (LCP; Synthes(®)) and postoperative full weight bearing in ambulatory neuro-orthopaedic patients ...
Recommendation XXIII. Patients with significant symptoms from unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis may benefit from a high tibial osteotomy.. Ten out of ten existing guidelines recommend osteotomy as a treatment option. High tibial osteotomies came into fashion during the 1960s. 19 uncontrolled cohort studies examined 2406 osteotomies. Good or excellent outcomes were achieved in 75% of the patients. The overall failure rate at 10 years was 25%.. The research team gave this osteoarthritis treatment option a Strength of Recommendation score of 75%.. ...
A midcrestal, full-thickness incision was performed. Once the flap was reflected, spiral drills were used to establish the future implant osteotomy sites. After establishing the initial implant osteotomy site, a sagittal osteotomy was outlined in the bone by scoring it with a No. 64 Beaver blade. The blade functions as a chisel and is tapped with a surgical mallet in small increments until a creation of a 1- to 3-mm-deep furrow along the length of the ridge. The seam is also made vertically to within 2 mm of the adjoining teeth. Once the crestal furrow and adjacent vertical bone releases have been defined, the bone chisel can be progressively driven deeper (Figure 3). Once the furrow is completed, the implant osteotomy site can be prepared to full dimension by osteotomes of increasing diameter (Friadent GmbH, Mannheim, Germany). Each instrument remained in the implant site for 1 minute before the next diameter was used. Finally, a Tapered Screw-Vent (Zimmer Dental, Carlsbad, Calif) of 3.7 × 13 ...
Using FEA simulation, we have shown that the magnitudes of tooth displacement, the maximum bone stress, and the maximum stress on the screw-miniplate system in the OD method were less than those in the Ob and TO methods at all the miniplate locations on both incisal and contralateral molar loadings. This means that the OD method provided greater resistance to the simulated functional forces than the other two techniques. These results only refer to the miniplate fixation technique and not to screws or semirigid systems.. The smaller size of the lever arm in the OD method probably plays an important role in yielding less stress and smaller displacement. By using FEA simulation, Puricelli et al. [7] suggested that their osteotomy technique presents better mechanical stability than the original OD method. The Puricelli osteotomy is performed at a region further distal to the osteotomy in the OD method, performed nearer to the mental foramen. They speculated that the size of the lever arm decreases ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Stacked-blade, single-cut, ulnar-shortening osteotomy. AU - Renfree, Kevin J.. PY - 2015/2/1. Y1 - 2015/2/1. N2 - The authors reviewed a 10-year consecutive series of ulnar-shortening osteotomies using a freehand, single oblique cut with 2 or 3 stacked saw blades. Twenty-one patients (23 wrists) with chronic ulnar impaction syndrome (mean age, 45 years; range, 16 to 73 years) demonstrated an average preoperative ulnar variance of +2.1 mm (range, 0.0 to 4.0 mm). An oblique osteotomy was performed in the distal one-third of the ulnar diaphysis at an estimated 45° or 60° angle, relative to the ulnar axis, and was fixed with a 7-hole, 2.7- or 3.5-mm dynamic compression plate placed dorsally. Using a previously described formula, the authors estimated ulnar shortening on the basis of intraoperative measurement of kerf width and osteotomy angle as 3.3 mm (range, 2.3 to 4.7 mm). The actual measured average radiographic change in ulnar variance (preoperative to postoperative) was 2.8 ...
While a hip replacement allows for immediate weight-bearing, and bone healing would not be an issue, the bearing surfaces may not be able to tolerate the patients lifestyle and desire to return to running. Also, if the hip replacement became infected, or she required a revision surgery, either would present a significant complication.. An osteotomy is more challenging technically but post-operatively, once healed, she would not have any limitations or restrictions to activities. The procedure is not done frequently, but if well planned (and executed), will restore the patients leg lengths, restore her alignment, allow her non-union to heal, and maintain her native femoral head.. Using the Materialise OrthoView digital pre-operative planning software enables pre-surgical visualization of a valgus-producing intertrochanteric osteotomy.. ...
Osteotomies in the cervical spine are technically challenging. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of the modified pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) technique at C7 to be used for the treatment of cervicothoracic kyphosis secondary to ankylosing spondylitis. A total of 120 cervical spine computed tomography (CT) scans (of 82 male and 38 female patients) were evaluated. The scans were taken parallel to the middle sagittal plane and the sagittal plane intersecting the pedicles. Simulated osteotomy was performed by setting the apex of the wedge osteotomy at different points, and morphologic measurements were obtained. Seven patients with cervicothoracic kyphosis who underwent a modified PSO at C7 between May 2009 and June 2015 were retrospectively evaluated. The mean follow up was 32.9 months (range 21-54 months). Preoperative and postoperative chin-brow vertical angle (CBVA), sagittal vertical axis (SVA) and sagittal Cobb angle of the cervical region were reviewed. The outcomes

Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome is a rare condition affecting 1:125,000 children. It is associated with short broad radially deviated thumbs, secondary to a delta proximal phalanx of the thumb. We undertook a retrospective review of seven children (13 thumbs) with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome whose thumbs were treated using a corrective osteotomy to the delta phalanx over a 13 year period. The types of osteotomy used in the series were reverse wedge osteotomy, opening wedge osteotomy and dome shaped osteotomy. The mean preoperative radial deviation of thumbs was 68 degrees (range 45-85 degrees ). At follow up five of the 13 thumbs demonstrated some residual radial deviation. All recurrences occurred in the dome shaped osteotomy group. Our data suggest that surgery is effective in correcting the deformity, but there is a risk of incomplete correction or recurrence. Despite the recurrence the mean postoperative deformity was significantly better than preoperatively and the majority of patients families

Introduction: There are many techniques to correct the hallux deformity. Most of them include metatarsal and/or phalanx osteotomies. Akin osteotomy of the proximal phalanx is used to correct the distal articular set angle or the interphalangeal angle. However, indications for distal phalanx osteotomy remain unpublished. The aim of this study is to prove the benefit of performing an osteotomy on the distal phalanx in some cases to correct hallux deformities. Methods. We report 9 cases in which osteotomy of the distal phalanx was performed to correct the hallux deformity. Radiographic measurements were performed on standing dorsoplantar radiographs to analyze the distal articular set angle, interphalangeal obliquity, interphalangeal angle, and metatarsophalangeal angles. The cases are described. The surgical technique was performed by minimal incision surgery using fluoroscopy. The clinical results were evaluated by the VAS and the AOFAS forefoot scale. The mean follow-up was 92 months. Result: ...

Patients with peripheral neuropathy and pressure under a relatively plantar deviated metatarsal head frequently develop plantar foot ulcers. When conservative management with orthotics and shoes does not cure the ulcer, surgical metatarsal osteotomy may be indicated to relieve the pressure and enable the ulcer to heal. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of a mini-invasive floating metatarsal osteotomy in treating recalcitrant ulcers or recurrent ulcers plantar to the metatarsal heads in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) related neuropathy. Computerized medical files of patients with diabetic neuropathy treated with an osteotomy during 2013 and 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. There were 20 osteotomies performed on 17 patients (mean age 58 years). The patients had a diagnosis of DM for a mean of 17 years. All ulcers were University of Texas grade 1A; mean ulcer age was 19 months. After 17/20 operations, the ulcer completely resolved after 6 weeks and did not recur after a mean follow

Clinical indications exist for both the surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME) and the multiple-piece maxillary osteotomy (MPMO). Recent trends, however, imply that the SARME combined with a subsequent 1-piece osteotomy can supplant the use of the MPMO. Those favoring the SARME frequently site morbidities associated with the MPMO.Major reported complications include loss of dentoalveolar segments, teeth, and oronasal or oroantral communication. Relapse, tooth devitalization, and damage to the periodontium, including bone loss and soft tissue alteration, comprise the minor morbidities. If these can be avoided or minimized, then the use of the MPMO for its inherent advantages over the SARME in certain clinical situations may be indicated. The purpose of our study was to critically evaluate the periodontium following the use of the MPMO to ascertain if minor morbidities are inherent to the procedure, and to quantify them. Records of 24 MPMO patients were reviewed, ranging from 3 to ...
A 20-year-old woman presented 6 months after an initial injury to her left elbow with pain and restricted movements. She was diagnosed with a type I malunited (Hahn-Steinthal) type of capitellum fracture through radiographic studies. Classically, the treatment has been excision of the fragment, which carries a risk of valgus instability of the elbow and late osteoarthrosis. We report a case of malunited type I capitellum fracture, for which corrective osteotomy through fracture site, open reduction and internal fixation was done 6 months following missed trauma. At 24 months follow-up the capitellum fracture had united and the patient has a stable elbow and excellent range of motion. Our case demonstrates that for type I malunited capitellum fractures corrective osteotomy through fracture site and internal fixation rather than excision of the fragment in young can result in successful union and stable elbow.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Proximal femoral geometry before and after varus rotational osteotomy in children with cerebral palsy and neuromuscular hip dysplasia. AU - Davids, Jon. AU - Gibson, Thomas W.. AU - Pugh, Linda I.. AU - Hardin, James W.. PY - 2013/3. Y1 - 2013/3. N2 - BACKGROUND:: Surgical management of hip dysplasia in children with cerebral palsy (CP) usually includes varus rotational osteotomy (VRO) of the proximal femur. Several techniques of VRO (end-to-end, EE; end-to-side, ES) have been designed to maximize correction and minimize associated deformities. The goals of the current study were to establish the prevalence and contribution of caput valgum to coxa valga deformity in children with CP, compare the geometry of the proximal femur after EE and ES techniques of VRO, and document the response of the proximal femur to subsequent growth after VRO. METHODS:: The records of 75 children with CP (Gross Motor Function Classification System, levels IV and V) with 137 surgically treated hips ...
Background The treatment of mild or borderline acetabular dysplasia is controversial with surgical options including both arthroscopic labral repair with capsular closure or plication and periacetabular osteotomy (PAO). The degree to which improvements in pain and function might be achieved using these approaches may be a function of acetabular morphology and the severity of the dysplasia, but detailed radiographic assessments of acetabular morphology in patients with a lateral center-edge angle (LCEA) of 18° to 25° who have undergone PAO have not, to our knowledge, been performed.. Questions/purposes (1) Do patients with an LCEA of 18° to 25° undergoing PAO have other radiographic features of dysplasia suggestive of abnormal femoral head coverage by the acetabulum?

The bilateral sagittal split osteotomy is considered the standard surgery to correct facial asymmetries. More recently, unilateral sagittal split osteotomy (USSO) was used to treat such malocclusions. To assess facial symmetry following USSO in the treatment of class III laterognathia. Frontal facial photographs of four groups of patients were assessed: (1) pre-surgical group (n = 30) with skeletal asymmetry, (2) postsurgical group assessing patients of the first group 2 years after USSO, (3) control group (n = 30) of patients judged to have harmonious facial norms, and (4) mirrored group (n = 30) in which the control photographs were altered by duplicating the right half side of the face to replace the left half, thus creating perfectly symmetrical faces. All 120 photographs were distributed to 40 expert orthodontists to evaluate and score facial symmetry using the visual analog scale. Skin sensitivity and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders were also assessed clinically pre and postsurgically.
TY - JOUR. T1 - 091. Role of submandibular intubation according to altemir in osteotomies to access the cranial base. AU - Biglioii, Federico. AU - Mortini, Pietro. AU - Brusati, Roberta. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Aim: Transfacial access to the cranial base often implies displacement of the upper teeth arcade or part of it as in Le Fort I osteotomy or zygomatic-maxillo-cheek flap. The correct and exact reposition of the bone segment is simplified by modeling of the titanium plates prior to executing the osteotomy and by controlling the restoration of individual occlusion at the end of surgery. This is possible if the endotracheal tube does not exit through the mouth. Also, downward displacement of the maxilla in Le Fort I osteotomy is limited by the presence of the orotracheal tube. As the tube may not be rhinotracheal because it would be into the surgical field, a good solution is represented by converting the passage of the orotracheal tube from the mouth through the oral pelvis to the skin ...
The clinical outcomes were not significantly different between the navigation and non-navigation groups. Furthermore, post-operative reorientation of the acetabular fragment was similar between the navigation and non-navigation groups. However, the discrepancy between the pre-operative planning line and post-operative osteotomy line was significantly improved in the navigation group compared with that in the non-navigation group (p < 0.05). Further, the complication rate was significantly improved in the navigation group (p < 0.001). Conclusion The accuracy of the osteotomys position was significantly improved by using the navigation. Therefore, the use of navigation during peri-acetabular osteotomy can avoid complications. ...

A Weil metatarsal shortening osteotomy (bone cut) is performed to decrease pressure on a prominent metatarsal head in the forefoot. The metatarsal head is the portion of the metatarsal bone that articulates (forms a joint) with the base of the toe.
A second metatarsal shortening osteotomy cuts and shortens the second metatarsal, the long bone that connects the second toe to the midfoot. The goals are to decrease pain and help straighten out the second toe.
Axial alignment of the femur and tibia is often misdiagnosed in patients with patellofemoral stability problems. Femoral torsion is critical for patellofemoral biomechanics, so it must be evaluated in every patient before the plan of surgery is decided. This case describes a femoral derotational osteotomy due to excessive internal torsion of the femur fixed with a retrograde femoral nail. This type of fixation provides a biomechanical advantage compared to plates. At the two-year follow-up, the patient achieved excellent results, reaching a functional score of 91 points on the Lysholm scale. Derotational femoral osteotomy should be considered in patellofemoral pathology, and a retrograde femoral nail is a valid fixation method for this surgery.
BackgroundAdult developmental dysplasia of the hip is an untreated congenital hip dysplasia that results in adult hip pain. One of the usual and effective methods for the treatment of this condition is periacetabular osteotomy. However, which approach is better between the modified S-P ...
This scenario describes a patient with kyphosis with an apex at T9. Instrumentation and fusion are performed from T2 to L2 (13 vertebrae, 12 segments or levels). Ponte or Smith-Petersen osteotomies are performed at T8 9, T9 10 and T10 11. Fragments excised at osteotomy are added to the fusion mass as bone graft. Additional graft is taken through a separate incision from the iliac crest.. For this procedure, the base code is: 22802 Arthrodesis, posterior, for spinal deformity, with or without cast; 7 to 12 vertebral segments. The osteotomies could also be base codes because they are 90-day global codes, but the arthrodesis code has a higher RVU value. The first osteotomy should be billed as: 22212 Osteotomy of spine, posterior or posterolateral approach, one vertebral segment; thoracic and should be appended with a 51 modifier because it is a 90-day global code. The second and third osteotomies should be billed as: 22216 Osteotomy of spine, posterior or posterolateral approach, one vertebral ...

The parapharyngeal space harbors 0.5% of all head and neck neoplasms. The surgical approach is the primary difficulty during these tumors resection once superiorly the access becomes more restricted by the progressive encroachment of the mastoid process and the angle of the mandible. Different types of mandibulotomy performed to improve the access to the parapharyngeal space are described in the literature. The aim of this work is to describe the technique used during parapharyngeal space neoplasms resection when a wider access is necessary. The technique is a pre-mental foramen mandibulotomy combined with a ramus osteotomy, which allows the mandibular body segment to be rotated completely out of the operative field. After the tumor resection the mandibular segment is reduced and its fixation is made with 2.0 and 2.4 plates and screws systems. The double mandibulotomy not only provides a wider field but also protects the inferior alveolar neurovascular bundle, which remains completely contained ...

The lateral window osteotomy (LWO) has been the most frequently utilized and published approach to sinus augmentation, presumably because there are no bone height restrictions and it provides the surgeon with more visual control; it is however, considered to be invasive, time consuming ,expensive and associated with patient morbidity. As a less invasive alternative to the LWO, transcrestal osteotome, balloon and hydrodynamic techniques can obtain a localized elevation of the sinus floor through a 3 - 10 mm diameter crestal osteotomy, minimizing the degree of flap elevation and eliminating the need for preparation of a larger bony window in the lateral aspect of the alveolus. The presentation will show the evolution is sinus augmentation approaches and will focus on current step by step Osseodensification sub crestal sinus elevation with long term follow ups of both clinical and CBCT radiographs. ...

The system has been designed by using 3D-printed truss implant technology, which uses engineering principles such as structural mechanics and adjacent material reaction to develop foot and ankle implants.. The companys previous osteotomy wedge systems include only 15 to 18 implant sizes that offer limited options to surgeons.. Foot and Ankle Surgeon John Crates said: Similar to the technology used in bridges, skyscrapers, and airplane wings, truss designs provide strong structural support and integrity when implanted within the body with the goal of sustaining angular corrections.. Additionally, the structural mechanics and surface topology of the Osteotomy Truss System promote osseous incorporation and potentially accelerate healing.. The companys other implant platform includes Cervical Spine Truss System and ALIF Spine Truss System, which can be used by neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons.. ...
