  • Approach to the Surgical Theater: Epidemiological Survey in Orthopaedic
           Italian Private Hospitals

    • Authors: Boniforti; Filippo, Adriani, Ezio
      Abstract: Surgeons prepare for surgery in a reliable and reproducible manner and according to the guidelines published by the international health institutions. An epidemiological survey on 127 surgeons has shown that in everyday practice they have to follow the most recent knowledge based on evidence-based medicine (EBM) guidelines. However, more standardized approach to the surgical theater practices have to be defined by our health caregivers.

  • Migration of Mesenchymal Stem Cells of Bursal Tissue after Rotator Cuff
           Repair in Rats

    • Authors: Safi; Elem, Ficklscherer, Andreas, Bondarava, Maryna, Betz, Oliver, Zhang, Anja, Jansson, Volkmar, Müller, Peter E.
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this study is to verify migration of mesenchymal stem cells of bursal tissue into the healing site after rotator cuff repair in rats. Methods Fischer rats and green fluorescent protein (GFP)-transgenic rats were used. Bursal tissue from GFP rats was isolated and transplanted into tendon repair sites in Fischer rats. We examined the histology of the rotator cuff and the proportion of GFP-positive cells in the repaired rotator cuff 1, 3, and 6 weeks after surgery. Results Cell migration was observed during the third and sixth week after surgery. We also found mesenchymal stem cells and formed bursal cluster patterns in the repaired rotator cuff tendons. Conclusion Mesenchymal stem cells migrated from bursal tissue and infiltrated the repaired rotator cuff tendons. Clinical Relevance Mesenchymal stem cells from bursal tissue can contribute to the healing progress of the repaired rotator cuff.

  • Are Prophylactic Intravenous Antibiotics Required in Routine Shoulder
           Arthroscopic Surgery' A Systematic Review of the Literature

    • Authors: Baraza; Njalalle, Leith, Jordan
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this study was to find out from the literature the difference in infection rates between patients who did and patients who did not receive prophylactic antibiotics in arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Methods We conducted a comprehensive search of the literature using Medline Ovid for prospective studies that looked at infection as the primary outcome following shoulder arthroscopy. The articles were then assessed for study design, outcome, and relevance to the specific question as part of the critical appraisal. Results Eight partially relevant articles were obtained from the search, but there were no prospective studies comparing infection in patients who had prophylactic antibiotics versus those who did not in shoulder arthroscopy. Conclusion No compelling evidence exists on the role of prophylactic antibiotics in preventing infections in shoulder arthroscopy. Level of Evidence Level IV, systematic review of level IV studies.

  • Large Osteochondral Allografts of the Knee: Surgical Technique and
           Indications

    • Authors: Pisanu; Gabriele, Cottino, Umberto, Rosso, Federica, Blonna, Davide, Marmotti, Antonio Giulio, Bertolo, Corrado, Rossi, Roberto, Bonasia, Davide E.
      Abstract: Large osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplant has become a valid alternative to restore articular surface in challenging articular lesions in young and active patients, either in primary or in revision procedures. Several studies support the effectiveness and safety of OCA, but costs and graft availability limit their use. The indications are the treatment of symptomatic full-thickness cartilage lesions greater than 3 cm2, deep lesions with subchondral damage, or revision procedures when a previous treatment has failed. The goal of the transplant is to restore the articular surface with a biological implant, allow return to daily/sports activities, relieve symptoms, and delay knee arthroplasty. Grafts can be fresh, fresh-frozen, or cryopreserved; these different storage procedures significantly affect cell viability, immunogenicity, and duration of the storage. Dowel and shell technique are the two most commonly used procedures for OCA transplantation. While most cartilage lesions can be treated with the dowel technique, large and/or geometrically irregular lesions should be treated with the shell technique. OCA transplantation for the knee has demonstrated reliable mid- to long-term results in terms of graft survival and patient satisfaction. Best results are reported: in unipolar lesions, in patients younger than 30 years, in traumatic lesions and when the treatment is performed within 12 months from the onset of symptoms.

  • Surgical Treatment of Objective Patellar Instability: Long-Term Results

    • Authors: Berruto; Massimo, Uboldi, Francesco Mattia, Ferrua, Paolo, Vergottini, Giovanni, Manunta, Andrea
      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the long-term results of classical “à la carte” surgical treatment of objective patellar instability as proposed by Dejour in 1987. Methods A multicentric retrospective study was conducted evaluating patients that underwent surgical procedure with a 10-year minimum follow-up (mean 12.7; range, 10–15). Surgical procedures were medial transfer of the tibial tubercle transfer according to Elmslie and Trillat et al in 38 cases, plasty of the vastus medialis obliquus according to Insall in 15 cases, open lateral retinacular release in 13 cases, capsuloplasty in 3 cases, and trochleoplasty in 1 case. Different combinations of surgical procedures were adopted according to the pathological features. Subjective outcome was assessed with the visual analog scale (VAS), Kujala score, subjective International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) score, Tegner score, and Crosby and Insall scale. Radiographic exams were used to assess the patellar tilt by the Laurin's angle and patellofemoral osteoarthritis (OA) according to the Iwano radiological OA scale. Results Forty patients were evaluated. Subjectively, 60% of patients achieved a result judged good, 34% sufficient, and 6% poor. There were only two cases of recurrence of instability. Mean score results were Kujala score 73.4 ± 9.9 (range, 55–95), VAS 4.5 ± 1.2 (range, 1–6), IKDC 64.8 ± 7.9 (range, 51–88), and Tegner score 4. Only nine patients returned to sports activities). Ten patients developed a grade I patellofemoral OA, 8 patients a grade II, and 22 patients a grade III. Average patellar tilt was 10° ±  3.9°. Conclusion This retrospective study showed that the traditional surgical procedure was successful for the treatment of patellar instability, but it did not prevent symptomatic patellofemoral OA. Level of Evidence Level IV, retrospective case series.

  • Factors Affecting Subjective and Objective Outcomes and Return to Play in
           Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Retrospective Cohort Study

    • Authors: Rosso; Federica, Bonasia, Davide E., Cottino, Umberto, Cambursano, Simone, Dettoni, Federico, Rossi, Roberto
      Abstract: Purpose To analyze the prognostic factors influencing subjective and objective outcomes and return to play (RTP) after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R). Methods Primary ACL-Rs using a transtibial technique performed between 2008 and 2012 were included. Data regarding patients, surgery, sports, and rehabilitation, including an on-field rehabilitation (OFR) and duration of the rehabilitation program, were collected. The International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) subjective and objective evaluation forms, and the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score and Lysholm questionnaires were used for the assessment of subjective and objective outcomes. The Subjective Patient Outcome for Return to Sports and ACL–return to sport after injury (RSI) scores were used for RTP evaluation. Several potential predictors of outcome were tested with a univariate analysis. All the variables with p

  • Survival Analysis after Core Decompression in Association with
           Platelet-Rich Plasma, Mesenchymal Stem Cells, and Synthetic Bone Graft in
           Patients with Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head

    • Authors: D'Ambrosi; Riccardo, Biancardi, Elena, Massari, Giulia, Ragone, Vincenza, Facchini, Renato Mario
      Abstract: Purpose The aim of this study was to report the rate of survivorship in patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head treated with core decompression in association with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) implantation, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection, and synthetic bone graft. Methods We evaluated 24 hips in 16 patients, according to Ficat classification, treated by core decompression, injection of PRP and MSCs, and backfilling of the core tract with synthetic bone graft. Survivorship was estimated using Kaplan–Meier curves. Results The survivorship of core decompression in association with the procedure is 50% at 75 months of follow-up. The survival rate was 80% for patients in early stage and 28.6% for patients in advanced stage at 75 months. When we compared Kaplan–Meier survival curves of patients in stage III + IV and patients in stage I + II, we noticed that the survival functions are statistically different (p

  • Locking Dorsal Plate in Four-Bone Arthrodesis in SLAC and SNAC 3 Wrist

    • Authors: Odella; Simona, Querenghi, Amos M., Locatelli, Francesco M., Dacatra, Ugo, Creta, Elia, Tos, Pierluigi
      Abstract: Purpose The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and the safety of performing a four-bone arthrodesis (FBA) with dorsal locking plate in patients suffering from stage III scapholunate advanced collapse/ scaphoid nonunion advance collapse (SLAC/SNAC) wrist. Methods We evaluated retrospectively 20 patients surgically treated by a FBA with the use of locking dorsal plate. All the patients were clinically evaluated at follow-up for grip strength, range of motion and pain (visual analog scale), and with the Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand score and the Mayo wrist score. Imaging evaluation was performed on standard X-rays. Results The mean follow-up was 6 years (range: 1–11 years). During follow-up, the patients showed good clinical outcomes in terms of pain relief and grip strength. Revision surgery was necessary only in one case because of screws loosening. In all cases, a solid bone fusion was achieved except in one patient, who presented a healing of lunocapitate joint. This condition did not affect the clinical outcomes. Conclusion FBA performed using a dorsal locking plate is a salvage procedure effective in treating stage III SLAC/SNAC wrist. In our study, this technique provided good clinical outcomes at mid-term follow-up with a very low complication rate. Level of Evidence Level IV, therapeutic case series.

      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of the present study was to investigate if the donor age of nonirradiated Achilles tendon allograft could influence the clinical results of revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Methods All patients that underwent ACL revision between 2004 and 2008 with at least 4 years of follow-up were included. For all the patients that met the inclusion criteria, the age of the graft donor was obtained from the tissue bank. Lysholm score was administered to patients that met inclusion criteria. In addition, patients were divided in two groups based on the donor age (

  • Giant Cells Osseous Tumor in the Tarsal Canal after Lateral Ankle Sprain

    • Authors: Lughi; Marcello
      Abstract: Ankle sprain can cause injuries to the anatomic structures surrounding the tibiotarsal joint. A possible extra-articular pathology is to be hypothesized and diagnosed as early as possible. The subtalar joint, for anatomical and functional reasons, is one of the most damaged joints following an ankle sprain. In spite of this, its involvement is often underestimated. The clinical case presented in the present article is referred to a giant cells osseous tumor in the tarsal canal that was diagnosed 2 months after an inversion ankle sprain.

      Abstract: Purpose Metaphyseal bone defects are a challenge in complex primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Recently, several studies have been published with promising results about the use of Trabecular Metal (TM) cones to address bone defects. The aim of this study is to review the literature to assess the efficacy of TM cones to address metaphyseal bone loss. Methods A comprehensive search was performed on PubMed, Medline, CINAHL, Cochrane, Embase, and Google Scholar databases using various combinations of the following keywords: “metaphyseal,” “cones,” “tantalum,” “knee,” and “revision.” Only papers reporting clinical data about the use of trabecular metal cones were included in the analysis. In vitro studies, case reports, surgical technique, or other studies where it was not possible to collect clinical data were excluded. Patients characteristics, details of the surgical procedures, outcome, and complications were collected from each included study. Results No controlled studies were available in the literature and all the papers were case series. In 16 studies included, the records of 442 patients with 447 implants and 523 TM cones were reported. The mean follow-up was 42 months (range: 5–105) for 360 procedures. Among 437 procedures, 30.4% were septic revisions. The Anderson Orthopaedic Research Institute (AORI) classification was available for 352 defects: 13 type 1, 69 type 2A, 115 type 2B, and 155 type 3. To manage these 352 defects, 360 TM cones were implanted. Intraoperative fractures occurred 13 times (10 femoral/3 tibial), 6 required surgical fixation. The overall infection rate was 7.38%, and the infection rate for the aseptic procedures was 0.99%. An aseptic exchange was performed 13 times, among these procedures two TM cones were loose. Signs of loosening were found just in 1.3% of the 523 TM cones implanted (5 femoral/2 tibial) during 447 procedures. Conclusion The TM cones are an effective solution to manage bone defects in complex primary and revision TKA at intermediate follow-up. The incidence of complications was low; however, the femoral metaphysis proved to be more susceptible to complications. Level of Evidence Level IV, systematic review of level IV studies.

  • Isolated Subscapularis Tendon Tear in a Skeletally Immature Soccer Player

    • Authors: Avanzi; Paolo, Dei Giudici, Luca, Giovarruscio, Roberto, Gigante, Antonio, Zorzi, Claudio
      Abstract: Subscapularis injury in adolescents, usually associated to an avulsion fracture of the lesser humeral tuberosity, accounts for less than 2% of all fractures of the proximal humerus. Isolated tears of the subscapularis tendon without a history of dislocation and associated avulsion fractures are an even rarer occurrence, and treatment is controversial. This article describes a rare case of a 12-year-old suffering from an isolated subscapularis tear and discusses its management. The patient was evaluated at presentation, and at 1 to 2.5 months after he underwent a cuff tear arthroscopic repair with a single “all suture” anchor loaded with two wires, active/passive range of motion (A/PROM), Constant–Murley score, and American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score were noted. Patient reported an excellent outcome, recovered the whole ROM, was pain free, and returned to the previous level of activity. Isolated avulsion of the subscapularis tendon requires a high index of suspicion for a proper diagnosis as early treatment is required for a good recovery. Arthroscopy reserves more advantages in proper hands, restoring the previous levels of function and activity. An increase in attention for this condition is mandatory in a society where many adolescents are getting more and more active in high levels of sport activities.
