      Pages: 6 - 7
      Abstract: Abstract A new scoring system is proposed in order to assist surgeons with the complex analysis associated with non-union surgery. Patients with non-union are rarely easily compared with one another and this has frustrated research in this field. We have therefore attributed values to clinical features based on clinical experience and research evidence, so that patients of similar complexity can be compared with one another. When greater experience with this scoring system has been gained it will be further refined and validated. We propose that surgeons with a subspecialist interest in non-union surgery use this system in reporting results, and that non-specialist surgeons use it to inform their decision to treat the fracture themselves, or refer to a subspecialist.

      Abstract: Abstract The long bone nonunions and critical bone defects are two of the more difficult complications to treat. We treated a 59 years old patient that came to our attention through the ambulatory of nonunion of our institute with a diagnosis of distal femoral nonunion on the left side: the patient had undergone previous osteosynthesis with plate and screws. At admission the NUSS score of the patient was calculated in order to orientate on the therapeutic strategy to be adopted. It was decided to follow the principles of monotherapy, proceeding with the resection of necrotic bone and the subsequent installation of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP-7). The postoperative course was smooth; it took a long motory rehabilitation period but, a year after surgery, the patient has achieved a good functional recovery, reaching a good quality of life.

  • Nostra esperienza sul trattamento delle pseudoartrosi delle ossa lunghe
           con sostituti ossei e PRP
    • Authors: B. Di Maggio; A. Grazioli; G. Abate; M. Italiano
      Pages: 12 - 14
      Abstract: The
      Authors report their experience on the use of bone substitutes in association with the use of PRP in the treatment of aseptic nonunion. It should be emphasized, for the purposes of healing, the crucial role of primary stabilization of the outbreak and the major inductive stimulus provided by the additional biologic support in the biologically inactive atrophic forms. They reiterate the importance, in order to choose the most suitable treatment, of a correct classification of the patient and pseudoarthrosis. Three significant cases of nonunion are described, extrapolated among those treated from 2010 to 2013 at the P.O. Piedimonte Matese.

  • Utilizzo dei fattori di crescita nelle lesioni del tendine rotuleo
    • Authors: B. Moretti; G. Vicenti; A. Abate; R. Maddalena; A. Notarnicola
      Pages: 15 - 17
      Abstract: Abstract Chronic tendinopathies represent one of the most common causes of longterm pain and physical disability. Because of poor tendon vascularity and because of the istopathologic changes in the damaged area, tendon healing rate is relatively low compared with other connective tissues, inducing a poor clinical and functional outcome. For these reasons, beside classic surgical and conservative treatments, new therapeutic approaches, such as the use of growth factors, were developed in order to enhance biologic response and healing processes. One of the most innovative systems is based on PRP. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a plasma layer, separated after centrifugation of an autologous blood sample, in which platelets are about 8 times more concentrated than in normal plasma. The rationale of this technique is based on scientific evidence of the importance of growth factors, contained in platelet granules, in the normal tendon healing process. In this article we report the effects on clinical, functional and instrumental outcomes of US-guided injections of autologous PRP in 20 patients with patellar tendinopathy, aged between 18 and 43 years, treated in our clinic between 2010 and 2013.

      Abstract: Abstract In traumatologia e ortopedia, l’innesto di tessuto osseo viene frequentemente effettuato per facilitare la rigenerazione ossea. L’innesto di osso autologo è tuttora il “gold standard” e il sito di prelievo più comune rimane la cresta iliaca. La recente introduzione di un nuovo “device”, il “reamer irrigator aspirator” (RIA), consente di prelevare tessuto osseo autologo dal canale intramidollare delle ossa lunghe, e in particolare del femore. Obiettivo del presente studio è descrivere le proprietà biologiche del tessuto osseo autologo ottenuto mediante RIA e discuterne le potenziali applicazioni e i risultati clinici nel “setting” di una insufficiente guarigione ossea dopo una frattura.

      Abstract: Abstract Studies have estimated that 5–10% of all fractures are associated with impaired healing, resulting in delayed union or non-union. Bone defects can result from a high-energy traumatic event, from large bone resection for different pathologies such as tumours or infections or from the treatment of complex non-unions. A large bone defect represents a challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon. This clinical condition is considered critical in relation to the skeletal segment involved: 3 cm for the forearm, 5 cm in the femur and tibia, 6 cm in the humerus. Excluding the traditional surgical techinques (distraction osteogenesis, autologous bone grafts or arthrodesis), the use of biotechnology can be very useful. We treated a 42 years old patient, that came to our observation through the ambulatory of nonunion of our Institute with a diagnosis of “humeral large bone septic defect”; this patient had in his history multiple previous osteosynthesis surgeries. The patient therefore underwent corrective surgery according to the Masquelet’s technique in two surgical times. The postoperative course was uneventful; during the follow-up the patient showed a good functional recovery with great satisfaction.

      Abstract: Abstract Nonunion is an important complication of carpal navicular fractures. The aim of this study is to report the medium term results of a reconstruction technique with cannulated screw combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in Herbert fractures C (late consolidation), D1 (fibrous union without deformity) and D2 (pseudarthrosis with initial deformity). The use of PRP according the results showed, in our experience, a good osteoinductive capacity supporting the healing.

      Abstract: Abstract We usually apply the newest and more accepted biotechnological surgical treatments for bone regeneration. Our results are similar to those in the literature. At the same time, in our Bio-Orthopedics Laboratory, we are conducting studies and research mainly on two topics: bone tissue engineering and reactions to metal release from total hip prostheses. We present in this paper our ongoing research and the preliminary results.

      Abstract: Abstract The aseptic loosening of the acetabular cup is a frequently complication in THA. The most important problem in the revision surgery is the bone loss that complicates the surgical procedures and thus the success of the implant in the long term. The homologous and heterologous bone grafts often represent the most widely used solution either in the morselized form, as a filler, or as structural graft with mechanical function. These tissues, however, have biological limitations and lose most of osteogenic and osteoinductive capacity;all this leads to the use of growth factors such autologous platelet rich plasma(P.R.P.). At the Institute of Orthopaedic and Traumatology Clinic of Catania between September 2004 and December 2012 were undergoing surgery for acetabular hip revision 26 patients; in 18 cases the PRP has been associated with homologous bone, while in 6 cases with equine bone. At a mean follow-up of 5 years(range 9–4 ys) the clinical and radiographic results were good in 23 cases, while, in 3 cases there has been an unsatisfactory result. We have not proved significant differences between the two groups of patients treated with homologous or equine bone. To further assess the real effectiveness will have to be carried out randomized studies on a large scale and precisely determine protocols for application and provide clear guidelines.

      Abstract: Abstract Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (AVN) is a common cause of hip disability that, if left untreated, may cause collapse of femoral head and secondary hip osteoarthritis in up to 80% of patients. Osteonecrosis of the femoral head typically affects patients in their third-to-fifth decades of life and often, in 50% of these patients, the disease will develop on both sides. Risk factors are many, such as hip trauma, alcohol abuse, excessive use of corticosteroids, hemoglobinopathy, Gaucher’s disease, pregnancy, coagulopathies, Caisson disease, inflammatory or autoimmune disease, antiretroviral therapy, hyperbaric exposure, cancer, smoke, chemotherapy. Often a real risk factor for AVN cannot be found, and the disease is defined idiophatic osteonecrosis. The surgical treatment of our choice consists in the removal of necrotic tissue (core decompression) associated with the inclusion of growth factors (rh-BMP-7) and a “scaffold” of equine flexible bone enriched with autologous mesenchymal stromal cells. The objective of this technique is to create a biological chamber inside the femoral head, leading to the formation of a biological reactor capable of regenerating healthy bone tissue. This procedure is performed with a minimally invasive technique in the operating room, with the aid of a c-arm fluoroscope.

      Abstract: Background osteochondral lesions of the knee (OLK) are a cause of knee pain and associated diseases. A new bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (CSM) technique has been developed for the treatment of OLK. Results: clinical outcomes, by IKDC and KOOS evaluation before surgery and subsequent follow-up, showed a significant improvement in scores. Control MRI and bioptic samples showed an osteochondral regeneration of the lesion site. Conclusions the one-step technique appears to be a good and reliable option for the treatment of OLK, both in terms of clinical outcomes and of imaging results.

      Abstract: Abstract Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) has demonstrated a high rate of clinical success despite a considerable number of complications. The second-generation ACI techniques require three-dimensional scaffolds. Midterm studies have demonstrated comparable results to ACI, yet with a decreased rate of complications. The aim of this review is to define the requisites of a scaffold and to report clinical results and limits of these techniques.

      Pages: 43 - 44
      Abstract: Abstract The menisci plays a key role in the knee joint. Meniscal tears are the most common knee injuries. It is none that complete or partial meniscectomy predispose the knee to degenerative joint disease. However, artrhoscopic meniscectomy remains the most frequently perform orthopaedic procedure. Therefore it would be seem logical to try to preserve meniscal tissue by repair, reconstruction or replacements. None of these procedures has been completely successfull and can be considered suitable for all patients, as meniscal tears require specific and patient-related treatments depending on the size and type of lesion. Recent advances in cell biology, biomaterial science and bioengineering have now the potential to drive meniscus regeneration into a series of clinically relevant strategies. In this review paper, the clinical need for meniscus repair, regeneration or replacements strategies will be explained, and past and current experimental studies are reported.

      Abstract: Abstract Severe flexor tendon injuries in the hand still represent a challenge for the surgeon. Several solutions have been proposed to avoid these problems: better suture techniques, even with mechanical systems, and the use of biotechnologies as barrier agents against scar formation both in primary sutures and in tenolysis following failures. Poor results are to be treated by sophisticated surgical techniques: tenolysis, teno-arthrolysis, tendon grafts (one or two-stage), up to the use of tendon prosthesis.

      Abstract: Background Chronic lower limb ulcers still represent a huge cost for health care systems. In addition to traditional surgical and medical techniques, several bioengineered products have been introduced. We report a case of a post-traumatic wound of the leg, complicated by tendon exposure treated. Due to general conditions of the patient, we chose to avoid major surgical operations and we used an allogeneic keratinocyte sheet on a hyaluronan acid device to improve the wound healing. Results The ulcer successfully healed in 60 days without needing any major operations. Conclusions The mechanisms of action, by which these allogeneic devices are able to improve the wound healing, are still uncertain and have to be studied. Nevertheless, these constructs may represent another option in the field of regenerative surgery for lower extremity wounds.

      Pages: 50 - 51
      Abstract: Abstract The Author reports his 7 years’ experience of treatment of more than 200 cases of non union with different sizes of bone defect. The study of the patient and of the non union are the starting point for the correct application of AO principles: compression, tension band, bone graft and osteotomies. In this paper are described the main techniques with specific tricks. More recently the Author has added a good experience with the Masquelet technique in infected non unions. No biotechnology has ever been used and the bone transport with Ilizarov technique has been reserved only in infected non unions of the tibia with severe injury of soft tissues.

      Abstract: Abstract The effectiveness of tibial osteotomy for the treatment of varus gonarthrosis has been widely discussed in the literature, while works reporting its role in the correction of constitutional or acquired post-traumatic valgus deformities are less numerous, if not rare. We present the study of 16 patients with valgus knee treated by external opening wedge tibial varus osteotomy above the tibial tuberosity between 1998 and 2008. We analyzed the results with a median follow-up of 6 years (range 2–12 years): with the rating scale of Lysholm and Gillquist, the average value was 83 (range 61–93). Our indication for surgical intervention was addressed to subjects aged <60–62 years with unadvanced valgus gonarthrosis, <12°, with medial-lateral laxity, mostly occurring after lateral spontaneous or surgical meniscectomy, outcomes of tibial lateral plateau fracture or constitutional valgus deformities. Under such conditions, this procedure, that is performed in intraligamental area, can restore ligament tension and rebalance the knee, at the cost of an acceptable joint line’s obliquity.

  • Le fratture acetabolari nel paziente anziano: nostra esperienza
    • Authors: F. Carluzzo; G. F. Longo
      Pages: 54 - 55
      Abstract: Abstract The acetabular fractures in the elderly are characterized by a high variability in terms of types of patients and fracture characteristics. In the elderly, the majority of acetabular fractures are pathological fractures due to the presence of osteoporosis, caused by falling low energy and can occur in unusual way. At A.O. Cannizzaro of Catania from 2007 to 2012, we treated 45 patients with acetabular fractures, over the age of 60 years. Of these patients, 34 were treated surgically (31 patients with ORIF, 3 patients with ORIF more acute PTA) and 11 conservatively. Of the patients treated surgically only 21 were subject to follow-up clinical, radiographic and pschicofunctional (SF-12 card), while 9 patients were evaluated only with card SF-12. Of the 31 patients surgically treated with ORIF only 4 needed a second operation of PTA secondary to the development of hip osteoarthritis post.traumatic. The range of movement of patients surgically treated with ORIF was similar if compared with controlateral hip or with patients treated conservatively, we witnessed only a modest reduction of intrarotation respect to the contralateral hip. The results of the functional and psychological’ SF-12 as well as the quality of life were better in patients surgically treated with ORIF compared to those subjected to synthesis more PTA in acute or secondary hip prosthesis for the development of a post-traumatic arthrosis. The anatomical reconstruction of the acetabulum, as demonstrated in the literature, it is clearly preferable to the prosthetic replacement since it allows to avoid many of the well-known complications due to surgery of the hip prosthesis, although the anatomical reconstruction of the acetabulum can considerably more complex than in the elderly patient for the fracture characteristics that distinguish it. A non-surgical treatment can be justified only if there is no serious breakdown of the acetabulum, or hip subluxation in the absence of traction and in patients with poor general condition. In the literature, the treatment of acetabular fractures in elderly patients is very controversial (O.R.I.F. vs. arthroplasty in acute vs conservative treatment). In our experience the O.R.I.F. represents an excellent treatment option in acetabular fractures in elderly patients and, in patients who do not develop secondary osteoarthritis were documented excellent results both from the clinical point of view that quality of life.
