Case Report Volume 3 Issue 1
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.

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.

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.
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.

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).

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.
Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate the results of management of comminuted fractures of the mid-distal third shaft of the humerus with indirect reduction and internal fixation with plate and screws through minimally invasive technique using the anterior approach.
CASE REPORT Volume 1 Issue 2
Abstract: We reported a case of 12-years-old girl with isolated pain in of the left wrist. The problem had lasted for 5 weeks after a trauma, and was getting worse. Wrist X-ray was obtained, and no abnormalities were appreciated.
RESEARCH ARTICLE Volume 1 Issue 2
Abstract: The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) rupture constitutes the main injury in modern sport. We have been interested in anarthroscopic reconstruction of the ACL using hamstring tendons. This is a prospective study covering a period of 58 months.
Case Report Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: Tendon ossification has a multifactorial aetiology. We present a case of a massive ossification within the substance of patellar tendon. A 79-years-old male who had a previous history of patellar tendon rupture and its surgical repair.
Research Article Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: To describe the learning curve of hip arthroscopy based on postoperative pain scores. Hip arthroscopy is technically demanding and entails a learning curve. Postoperative pain as immediate postoperative side effect may be tested with numerical scales.

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).
Abstract: Injectable autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) offers a new method for the minimal invasive treatment of acetabular cartilage defects. The feasibility of the procedure has not been objectified yet. Our goal was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of this arthroscopic technique.
