The Impact of Extended Trochanteric Osteotomy with Cerclage Fixation in Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty for Prosthetic Joint Infection
An extended trochanteric osteotomy (ETO) is a powerful tool for femoral component revision. There is limited evidence that directly supports its use in the setting of a prosthetic joint infection (PJI). Cerclage fixation raises the theoretical concern for persistent infection.
Results presented at the Musculoskeletal Infection Society Annual Meeting showed synovial biomarkers did not demonstrate high prognostic utility for predicting failure following reimplantation.
Published results showed use of bioabsorbable pins with tension band absorbable sutures achieved positive functional and radiological results with no major complications in pediatric patients with medial humeral epicondyle fractures.
Total shoulder arthroplasty vs hemiarthroplasty in patients with primary glenohumeral arthritis with intact rotator cuff: Meta-analysis using the ratio of means
About half of patients who underwent 6 months of nonoperative management for isolated posterior glenohumeral instability required arthroscopic stabilization, according to a presentation.
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic condition that affects the musculoskeletal system, including the bones, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and connective tissue. Myofascial pain syndrome typically causes pain and tenderness in a specific area, such as the neck and one shoulder.
