Valgus producing high tibial osteotomy (HTO) is an effective treatment option for medial compartment osteoarthrosis with varus deformity in young patients. The most common complications of conventional high tibial osteotomy techniques are related to accuracy of correction. Major angle correction of more than 15 degrees with an osteotomy proximal to ...

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 ...

Patients with moderate and severe slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) develop osteoarthritis earlier in life in association with mechanical impingement. To correct deformity and diminish impingement, we performed epiphysiodesis combined with an Imhauser intertrochanteric osteotomy (ITO) in moderate and severe slipped capital femoral epiphysis. We downgraded the angle of the ...

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 ...

Chevron osteotomy is a widely accepted method for correction of symptomatic hallux valgus deformity. Full weight bearing in regular shoes is not recommended before 6 weeks after surgery. Low intensity pulsed ultrasound is known to stimulate bone formation leading to more stable callus and faster bony fusion. We performed a ...

BACKGROUND: Radiographic measurements such as those of the hallux valgus angle and the intermetatarsal angle are essential parameters for assessing the severity of hallux valgus deformities and the extent of surgical correction required. However, to our knowledge, no study has investigated the reliability of the measurements that are made radiographically ...
Hahn Michael Patrick - - 2009
Multiple surgical options have been described for severe hallux rigidus. One option is capsular interpositional arthroplasty. We report our initial results with a technique using the thicker medial capsule as our interpositional material instead of the dorsal capsule and extensor hallucis brevis (EHB). Twenty-two patients with grade IV hallux rigidus ...

Adverse effects on the soft tissues after Le Fort I osteotomies include: broadening of the alar base, loss of vermilion show of the upper lip and down sloping of the commissures. In theory, an alar cinch suture combined with a muco-musculo-periosteal V-Y closure (ACVY) should improve not only the nasal ...
