PURPOSE: The use of bioabsorbable self-reinforced poly(L/DL)lactide 70/30 (SR-PLDLA) miniplates and screws could offer many benefits compared with conventional metallic devices for fixation of access osteotomies in oral cancer surgery. The material neither interferes with imaging nor with postoperative radiotherapy. The plates and screws do not need to be removed. ...

Stage II flatfoot secondary to posterior tibial tendon insufficiency may be subclassified into mild (IIa) and severe (IIb) deformity based on the degree of talonavicular abduction. Current assessment of this abduction is difficult. We hypothesized that two new anteroposterior radiographic parameters, the lateral talonavicular incongruency angle (IA) and incongruency distance ...

Optimal leg alignment is the goal of tibial osteotomy. The Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) and the Ilizarov method enable gradual realignment of angulation and translation in the coronal, sagittal, and axial planes, therefore, the term six-axis correction. We asked whether this approach would allow precise correction of tibial deformities. We ...

Opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) is used to treat isolated medial knee joint arthritis. A benefit of using allograft instead of autograft is avoiding a second surgical site, thereby decreasing operative time, blood loss, and pain. Our study objective was to evaluate allograft vs autograft in the failure and complication ...

Extra-articular ulna shortening osteotomy, in principle, is an accepted treatment option for symptomatic degenerative and traumatic triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears. Despite the benefits of this surgical approach, potential disadvantages include risk of nonunion, soft tissue irritation, and the need for future hardware removal. A recently introduced low profile ulna ...

Further knee surgery after proximal tibial osteotomies has been reported to have a more difficult surgical exposure due to decreased patellar height after the osteotomy. Although a decrease in patellar height has been reported for closing-wedge proximal tibial osteotomies, it has not been widely verified among opening-wedge procedures. A significant ...

Pes cavus is a progressive and ugly deformity of the foot. Although initially the deformity is painless, with time, painful callosities develop under metatarsal heads and arthritis supervenes later in feet. Mild deformities can be treated with corrective shoes, or foot exercises. However, in others, operative treatment is imperative. Soft ...

We performed an opening wedge osteotomy of the first cuneiform for the correction of all degrees of hallux valgus deformities. A wedge-shaped graft maintained the open wedge osteotomy and decreased the metatarsocuneiform joint inclination to correct the main angles of the hallux valgus. This procedure was performed for 101 feet ...
