Osteochondral defects of the femoral head are rare and principles of treatment include anatomic reduction, rigid fixation, enhancement of blood supply, and restoration of articular congruity. In this report, we present a case where the defect of the femoral head was treated with surgical dislocation of hip anteriorly and mosaicplasty. ...

Hibernoma is an uncommon, benign tumor of brown fat origin. The distribution of this tumor originally was described as following the location of persistent brown fat within the subcutaneous tissue of the thorax (especially the periscapular and interscapular regions), neck, axilla, shoulder, and retroperitoneum. Recently, hibernoma was described as being ...

Wire breakage and migration is a known complication of using a wire tension band construct to treat displaced patella fractures. We report a case of a broken K-wire that migrated from the patella completely into the proximal tibia without complication 9 years after the index surgery. This report highlights the ...

Acinetobacter baumannii is an emerging gram-negative nosocomial pathogen that rarely causes infections in orthopaedic patients. We report a case of imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii para-articular infection of the knee occurring in a healthy patient following one ambulatory steroid injection for the treatment of quadriceps tendinopathy. The infection was reduced by early ...

Distal radius fractures are among the most commonly encountered fractures in the extremities. Volar plating of distal radius fracture has gained popularity in recent years with the introduction of the locked plating system. Complications of volar plating include extensor and flexor tendon rupture. Here we present a case report of ...

Although bilateral anterior dislocation of shoulder is not that uncommon, there have been only 12 published reports on bilateral anterior fracture dislocation of shoulder. The associated fractures have mostly been greater tuberosity fractures with bilateral three part fractures being reported in only two cases. To our knowledge, a bilateral four ...

A 29-year-old female presented with pain and a palpable mass in the left wrist. Imaging demonstrated a multiloculated cystic mass adjacent to the radial aspect of the scaphoid, which was intimately associated with and appeared to arise from the wall of the radial artery and its dorsal branch. The mass ...

The footprint is thought to be an important fact in rotator cuff repairs and has been used to compare various cuff fixation techniques. The following experiment used two different measurement sensors to evaluate the footprint as it is affected by suture tensions in a transosseous equivalent suture bridge repair. It ...

Spine Tango is currently the only international spine registry in existence. It was developed under the auspices of Eurospine, the Spine Society of Europe, and is hosted at the University of Bern, Switzerland. The HJD Spine Center successfully tested Spine Tango during a 3-month pilot study and has since expanded ...

Recent resurgence in the interest of barbed suture has extended its application to wound closures in total joint surgery. Improved suture biomaterials and barb geometry has lead to consideration for its use in various orthopedic procedures including arthroplasty. The reported superior wound tensile stress distribution, no need for knots, and ...

Purpose: Our aim was to determine whether the administration of intravenous tranexamic acid is a safe and effective means of reducing blood loss associated with hip and knee replacement surgery.

Purpose: Accurate prediction of autograft size for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction can assist in preoperative planning and decision-making regarding graft choices. This study seeks to determine the accuracy of MRI measurements by comparing intraoperative measurements of the patella, semitendinosis, and gracilis tendons while correlating these measurements with patient anthropometric data ...

Incidental bone tumors are, by definition, asymptomatic lesions that are discovered through routine radiographs obtained for other reasons. Generally, these lesions are benign and latent, requiring no further intervention except observation. However, occasionally these radiographs will detect benign aggressive processes or even malignant lesions that do require further treatment and ...

Although the presence of patellar tilt usually implies a tight lateral retinaculum and unhealthy pressure distributions within the patellar cartilage, it is possible for the bony portion of the patella to appear tilted while the articular cartilage is in fact fully congruous in a medial-lateral direction. We call this "congruous ...

Purpose: Nonunions of the upper and lower extremity have been associated with pain and functional deficits. Recent studies have demonstrated that healing of these nonunions is associated with pain relief and both subjective and objective functional improvement. The purpose of this study was to determine which patient and surgical factors ...

Indications for the use of osteochondral allografts for orthopaedic surgical applications are increasing with improved surgical techniques and advancing experience. Modern tissue banks have developed harvesting, processing, and storage methods that ensure an adequate, safe supply of grafts. Continued research is necessary to find a technique that maximizes chondrocyte viability ...
