Surgical Treatment of Neurofibromatosis-1 with Anterior-Posterior Fusion and Concave Strut Graft for Dystrophic Kyphoscoliosis with Dislocation: A Case Report with 10-Year Follow Up

Authors: Jane Lee, BCom, LLB, Noriaki Kawakami, MD, DMSc, Ryoji Tauchi, MD, DMSc, Kazuki Kawakami, BKin and Tetsuya Ohara, MD

Abstract: Although dystrophic Neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF-1) is associated with severe deformity, NF-1 with vertebral dislocation only is extremely rare. We present outcomes of a 10-year follow-up of a combined anterior-posterior fusion for the correction of severe dystrophic kyphoscoliosis with a T3/T4 dislocation in a pediatric patient with neurofibromatosis type 1.

Patellar Tendon Reconstruction Utilizing Autograft Hamstring: A Docking Technique for the Sports Medicine Surgeon

Authors: Brian M Leo, MD and Michael K Krill, MD, ATC

Abstract: Patellar tendon ruptures are a relatively uncommon injury and account for roughly 3% of all injuries to the tendon ligament complex of the knee. Numerous techniques, grafts, augmentations and sutures utilized intraoperatively to repair the patellar tendon have been previously studied. Management of a failed primary repair or chronic patellar tendon tear can be challenging with high complication rates due to infection, wire breakage and tibial fracture with a high number of patients unable to return to pre-injury activity levels. These less than ideal long-term outcomes create uncertainty for surgeons when choosing the appropriate repair technique. We present a case report to describe a surgical technique using autograft tissue with common instrumentation, implants and techniques familiar to sports surgeons.

Medial-Inguinal Approach: A Novelty in Hip Joint Replacement

Authors: Luca Lucente, Andrea Palmesi and Damiano Longo

Abstract: We have developed a surgical process that allows for safe, easy and fast replacement of the hip that spares the hip stabilizer muscles completely. Throughout the operation, the surgeon can view the acetabulum from the front, which is a view that is preferable to the one available with other known techniques. There is no need for special equipment or special operating tables, and surgeons do not face a steep learning curve when first introduced to the procedure.

Esophageal Erosion Caused by Screw Displacement 22 Years after Anterior Cervical Spine Surgery

Authors: Nicolas Barut, MD, Nathalie Chereau, MD and Hugues Pascal-Moussellard, MD, PhD

Abstract: Esophageal injuries can occur many years after anterior cervical surgery. This case reports an esophageal perforation caused by screw migration 22 years after anterior cervical fusion for a C5-C6 tear-drop fracture. Dysphagia was the main presenting symptom. Early diagnosis and a joint spine and general surgery allowed a successful management after hardware removal, esophageal repair and sternocleidomastoid muscle flap.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy: An Asset When Treating Pediatric Osteoarticular Infection

Authors: Barbara Minkowitz, Jennifer R Ristic, Eileen Poletick, Robyn C Murphy and Elizabeth Baorto

Abstract: Pediatric osteoarticular infection can lead to serious sequelae and permanent disability. The purpose of this study was to describe use of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) as an advantageous treatment option for pediatric patients with osteoarticular infection. NPWT has not been used in pediatric articular infections and has only been published in animal models. Retrospective review of 18 patients (20 acute osteoarticular infections) with a mean age of 92.83 months (range: 4-187 months) and a mean follow-up of 31.61 months (range: 10-94 months).

Return to Sport after ACL Reconstruction Using Hamstring Tendon: Analyzing 51 Cases from Malta's Hospital in Dakar

Authors: Kinkpe CVA, Niane MM, Fonkoue L, Ouedraogo PF, Daffe M, Gueye AB, Traore MM and Ndoye GF

Abstract: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture is a frequent lesion in athletes. It is incompatible with the practice of high-level sport, especially pivot and contact-pivot ones. The purpose of the ACL reconstruction is to allow the athlete to resume the practice of same sport at the same level.

Efficacy of Adjunctive Antibiotic-Loaded Acrylic Bone Cement for Deep Surgical Site Infection Prophylaxis after Primary Cemented Hip and Knee Arthroplasties

Authors: Fumio Sasazawa, Fumihiro Oha, Masahiro Kanayama, Daisuke Takahashi and Norimasa Iwasaki

Abstract: The efficacy of antibiotic-loaded acrylic bone cements (ALBC) for prophylaxis of deep surgical site infections (deep SSIs) after primary cemented joint replacement surgery remains controversial. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the issue, with respect to three types of arthroplasty, namely, total knee arthroplasty (TKA), total hip arthroplasty (THA), and bipolar hip arthroplasty (BHA).
