The purpose of this study was to determine whether surgery is an effective option for the treatment of stenosis of the lumbar spine and degenerative spondylolisthesis in the octogenarian population.
An as-treated analysis of patients with lumbar stenosis and degenerative spondy
Reconstruction of the proximal part of the tibia in children with megaprostheses or standard composite devices removes the distal femoral physis, and osteoarticular allografts have a high incidence of mechanical failure. We evaluated the results of an alternative original technique for p
Cell phone use has become common in areas of the hospital, including the operating room. The purpose of this study was to document the frequency of bacterial contamination on the cell phones of orthopaedic surgeons in the operating room and to determine whether a standardized disinfectin
Locking plates are widely used in fracture fixation, mainly for meta-diaphyseal fractures, comminuted fractures, fractures with a critical-size bone defect, periprosthetic fractures, osteotomies, and fractures in osteoporotic bone. The aim of this animal study was to evaluate the effect
The present study evaluated the early clinical outcomes, radiographic parameters, and survivorship of first and second-generation INBONE intramedullary-fixation total ankle arthroplasties.
Fifty-nine primary total ankle arthroplasties utilizing INBONE I or II implants were perf
Mrs. A is a pleasant seventy-seven-year-old widow with an increasingly symptomatic right knee that has markedly limited her activities in the past year. Mrs. A’s daughter, who lives in town, urged her to seek treatment. History, physical examination, and radiographs confirmed the diagnosis of end-stmai mult The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery current issue
Many radiographic indices that are used to assess adolescents for femoroacetabular impingement rely on an ossified posterior acetabular wall. A recent study identified a secondary ossification center in the posterior rim of the acetabulum, the ossification of which may affect perceived a
Residents in surgical training programs today demonstrate an increasingly strong interest in global health. Given the considerable need for specialists in underserved areas, some surgical residency programs offer international health electives in resource-poor settings to augment residen
Upper cervical instability is common in many skeletal dysplasias, and surgical treatment can be difficult because of small, fragile osseous elements. In this study of children with skeletal dysplasia and upper cervical instability, we compared fusion rates and complications between (1) p
A discoid lateral meniscus in the knee is more common in Asian populations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of arthroscopic meniscectomy of the discoid lateral meniscus on the axial alignment of the lower limb in adolescents (younger than twenty years of age).
Focused on young surgeons starting their careers in academic orthopaedics, the John J. Fahey, MD, Memorial North American Traveling Fellowship (NATF) has served to promote clinical, intellectual, and scientific exchange in orthopaedic surgery for the last forty-five years. The 2013 NATF wa
Chronic osteoarthritis of the glenohumeral joint, traumatic injury, post-reconstruction arthropathy, and developmental conditions such as glenoid dysplasia can result in posterior glenoid bone loss and excessive retroversion of the glenoid. Shoulder replacement in this setting is technically challemai mult The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery current issue
Many orthopaedic surgical procedures can be performed with either regional or general anesthesia. We hypothesized that total hip arthroplasty with regional anesthesia is associated with less postoperative morbidity and mortality than total hip arthroplasty with general anesthesia.
Severe metaphyseal and meta-diaphyseal bone loss poses important challenges in revision total knee arthroplasty. The best strategy for addressing massive tibial bone loss has not been determined. The purpose of this study was to assess the intermediate-term clinical and radiographic resu
Following neonatal brachial plexus palsy, the Putti sign—obligatory tilt of the scapula with brachiothoracic adduction—suggests the presence of glenohumeral abduction contracture. In the present study, we utilized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to quantify this glenohumeral abduction c
Ossification of the calcaneal apophysis has never been fully characterized. We examined the ossification sequence of the calcaneus in relation to ossification of the iliac apophysis and the timing of the peak height velocity (PHV).
Ninety-four healthy children (forty-nine girls
Certain fracture configurations, especially spiral fractures, are often thought to be indicative of nonaccidental trauma in children. The purpose of this study was to determine whether femoral fracture morphology, as determined by an objective measurement (fracture ratio), was indicative
The mechanical fixation of orthopaedic and dental implants is compromised by diminished bone volume, such as with osteoporosis. Systemic administration of sclerostin antibody (Scl-Ab) has been shown to enhance implant fixation in normal animals. In the present study, we tested whether Sc
Gastrocnemius recession has emerged as a viable intervention for patients with recalcitrant foot and ankle disorders associated with isolated gastrocnemius contracture. The purpose of this case-control study was to investigate the effects of an isolated gastrocnemius recession on pain, p
In patients with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia with extensive femoral involvement, severe coxa vara may cause complex femoral deformities that are difficult to treat with a single-stage surgical procedure. We evaluated the results of treatment of such patients with a two-stage procedure.
The purpose of this prospective study was to report the long-term risks of rotator cuff tear enlargement and symptom progression associated with degenerative asymptomatic tears.
Subjects with an asymptomatic rotator cuff tear in one shoulder and pain due to rotator cuff disease
Total knee replacement is a highly successful and frequently performed operation. Technical outcomes of surgery are excellent, with favorable early postoperative health-related quality of life. This study reviews intermediate and long-term quality of life after surgery.
The anterior approach to the hip gained popularity for total hip arthroplasty in recent years. Distal extension of the anterior approach, sometimes needed intraoperatively, potentially endangers neurovascular structures to the quadriceps. The aim of this study was to determine the anatom
