  • Data and decision making – from odd to artificial

  • The impact of the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions on orthopaedic trauma
           admissions in a central academic hospital in Johannesburg

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND: The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), commonly known as Covid-19, has caused a global economic and healthcare crisis. Many countries tried to curb the spread of the virus by implementing various lockdown restrictions to reduce transmission. The Republic of South Africa (RSA) implemented an alcohol ban as one of the lockdown restrictions. The objectives were to describe the effect of the lockdown alert levels and alcohol availability on orthopaedic trauma admissions, compared to the preceding two years. METHODS: A retrospective review of clinical records was conducted. Data included orthopaedic trauma admissions for the five-month period in a facility in Johannesburg from 27 March to 31 August in the years 2018, 2019 and 2020. Lockdown alert levels were categorised according to the Department of Health which included the ban, reintroduction and re-banning of alcohol consumption. Data collected for 2018, 2019 and 2020 included demographics of sex and age, as well as fracture location, open or closed injuries, polytrauma patients and gunshot injuries. RESULTS: Overall, 672, 621 and 465 patients were admitted in 2018, 2019 and 2020, respectively. There was a decrease of 25% of orthopaedic trauma admissions during the five-month lockdown period in 2020 compared to 2019 (p-value = 0.020) and 30% from 2020 compared to 2018 (p-value = 0.010). In 2020, admissions increased by 112% (n = 82) from alert level 4, when alcohol was banned, to alert level 3 (3a), when alcohol was reintroduced. Admissions decreased by 33% (n = 51) from alert level 3 (3a) to alert level 3 (3b), when alcohol was re-banned. Motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) were the commonest cause of admissions in alert level 3 (3a), accounting for 41% (n = 56). Covid-19 tests were positive in 10% (n = 34) of the 346 tests performed on orthopaedic trauma admissions CONCLUSION: Our study showed the decrease in orthopaedic trauma admissions due to the Covid-19 lockdown regulations. Furthermore, our study demonstrated the impact of alcohol availability on orthopaedic trauma admissions in a central academic hospital in Johannesburg. Level of evidence: Level 4.
  • Comparing outcomes between enhanced recovery after surgery and traditional
           protocols in total knee arthroplasty: a retrospective cohort study

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND: Knee replacement surgery was traditionally associated with prolonged recovery and rehabilitation programmes in hospital. Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols have been shown to be cost effective while not compromising patient safety or functional outcome. Despite this proven efficacy, ERAS has not been widely adopted in South African orthopaedic practices. The aim of this study is to determine if it is possible to practise these guidelines in South Africa so as to decrease the length of stay (LOS) without an increase in complication rate or compromise in functional outcome. METHODS: Included in the study were 119 patients undergoing elective total knee arthroplasty between 2013 and 2017. They were divided into two cohorts. The first group was treated with a traditional protocol and included 59 patients. The second group was treated with ERAS and included 60 patients, following implementation of the ERAS protocol in 2015. The functional outcome was assessed using the Oxford Knee Score (OKS). The 30-day readmission rate was used to assess safety of early discharge. LOS and patient demographics were also collected to compare the cohorts. RESULTS: There was no clinically significant difference between the cohorts with regards to OKS or readmission rate. Two sample t-tests were used to compare these parameters. The mean OKS for the traditional group was 59.1 (SD 2.4), and for the ERAS group, 58.7 (SD 5.0) (p = 0.73). The readmission rate was 8.5% in the traditional group and 10% in the ERAS group (p = 1.00). The LOS was significantly decreased in the ERAS group, with a mean of 2.3 days (SD 1.8) compared to 5.0 (SD 2.2) in the traditional group (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: ERAS protocols used in the South African context in elective total knee arthroplasty significantly decrease the LOS without compromising patient safety or functional outcome. Level of evidence: Level 3.
  • Mega-OATS of the knee without specialised instrumentation: a low-cost
           option for large cartilage defects in a resource-restrained environment

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND: A 26-year-old patient presented to a specialised knee clinic in a public hospital with ongoing pain after having sustained a soccer injury six years prior. A large osteochondral defect of the distal medial femoral condyle was diagnosed. Due to resource limitations, fresh allograft or a large osteochondral autograft transplantation system (Mega-OATS) workbench was unavailable. CASE REPORT: A Mega-OATS cartilage transplantation was done, using the patient's posteromedial femoral condyle as donor tissue, and transplanted to the defect in the distal femoral condyle, a technique that has been well documented and followed up. At six weeks postoperatively, an MRI showed early incorporation of the graft tissue. Clinical outcomes were excellent at one year follow-up with the EQ-5D 5L score 11111, the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS-PS) 100%, and the Lysholm score also 100%. Radiographs at one year confirmed an unchanged graft position and showed no signs of osteoarthritis. DISCUSSION: Large osteochondral lesions in the knee (> 4 cm²) are challenging to treat, and the most commonly used modalities are fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) or autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). Mega-OATS of the knee has previously been described but is not commonly used due to the requirement of a specialised and expensive workbench, and fear of morbidity at the donor site. CONCLUSION: Mega-OATS of the knee is possible without a specialised workbench or tools and had good clinical outcomes at two-year follow-up of the patient. Level of evidence: Level 5
  • Splints and immobilisation approaches used for second to fifth metacarpal
           fractures: a systematic review

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND: The second to fifth metacarpal fractures are immobilised with splints, plaster of Paris (POP) or buddy strapping for a period of time. However, no recent evidence-based splinting and immobilisation programme exists for the management thereof, leaving a gap in the literature to inform clinical practice. This review aimed to review, appraise and collate the literature on splints and immobilisation approaches used for second to fifth metacarpal fractures after surgical and conservative management in adults aged 20 to 59 years. METHODS: The review included experimental study designs, quasi-experimental studies, cohort studies and case-control studies from January 2008 to September 2018. Two reviewers independently screened, selected, appraised and extracted data from the included studies. Preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analysis (PRISMA) guided the reporting. Joanna Briggs Institute (jBl) critical appraisal tools were used to assess the risk of bias for each included study. RESULTS: Database searches generated 1 005 articles with ten additional articles found on Google Scholar. Ten articles were included: two randomised controlled trials (RCTs), one quasi-RCT, four prospective studies, one retrospective record review, one retrospective study and one comparative study with descriptive reporting of the results. CONCLUSION: High level 1b evidence suggests that no reduction, a soft wrap and buddy strapping for three weeks with early active finger and wrist mobilisation are effective for individuals who sustained boxer's fractures with < 70° angulation. To guide clinical practice, high-level research is needed to determine the immobilisation of second to fifth metacarpal fracture types. Level of evidence: Level 2
  • Orthopaedic research in Zimbabwe: a seminal bibliometric analysis

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND: To provide a bibliometric analysis of published orthopaedic research in the form of peer-reviewed articles as well as non-indexed articles from Zimbabwe in the past six decades. METHODS: We carried out a literature search of the 'Clarivariate Analytics' Web of Science database, specific journals not included in the database and the University of Zimbabwe repository. We then selected articles focused on research in orthopaedic pathology in Zimbabwe. These articles were then classified by year of publication; focus of research; first and last author country of origin; collaboration type between high-, middle- and low-income countries; journal title; journal country; methodology; and level of evidence. RESULTS: A total of 27 articles published from 1965 to 2020 were found in the search with 26 having a single focus of research and one multiple foci. The highest focus of research was osteoporosis with six articles (22%), while trauma was second with five articles (19%). A majority, 19/27 (70%), of studies had a first author from Zimbabwe, while a plurality, 10/27 (37%), had a Zimbabwean last author. Most collaborations, 12/27 (44%), were high-income-low-income countries, with most studies being concomitantly published in the United States, 13/27 (48%). Cross-sectional descriptive studies represented the most common methodology with 13/27 articles carried out in this method (48%). The majority of these articles, 14/27 (52%), represented a low level of evidence at level 4, while 11/27 articles (41%) of articles were of a high level of evidence (levels 1 or 2). CONCLUSION: There is a limited amount of published orthopaedic surgery research work from Zimbabwe, highlighting the need for more and higher quality research from Zimbabwe. Among different models, partnerships between Zimbabwean researchers and researchers from other international institutions appear to be the most productive in terms of research output and hence should be replicated more broadly. Level of evidence: Level 4
  • Modular prosthetic reconstruction for primary bone tumours of the distal
           tibia in ten patients

    • Abstract: BACKGROUND: Below-knee amputation (BKA) is the safest treatment for benign aggressive and malignant bone tumours of the distal tibia, yielding good oncological and functional results. However, in selected patients where limb salvage is feasible and amputation unacceptable to the patient, limb salvage using a distal tibial replacement (DTR) can be considered. This study aims to present the oncological and functional results of the use of the latter treatment method in our unit. METHODS: A retrospective folder review was performed for all ten patients who received a modular DTR between 1 January 2005 and 31 January 2019 for a primary bone tumour, either benign aggressive or malignant. Six were female and the mean age was 31 (12-75) years. There were five patients with giant cell tumour of bone, four with osteosarcoma and one with a low-grade chondrosarcoma. The patients with osteosarcoma had neoadjuvant chemotherapy before surgery. Function was assessed by the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) score. RESULTS: Two patients had local recurrence treated with a BKA and one other patient died of metastases three years postoperatively. At a mean follow-up of three years, the remaining eight patients had a mean MSTS score of 83% (67-93%). There were no radiological signs of loosening, and no revision surgeries. CONCLUSION: Endoprosthetic replacement of the distal tibia for primary bone tumours can be a safe treatment option in very selected cases. Level of evidence: Level 4
  • Current concepts on the assessment of a patient with a traumatic anterior
           shoulder dislocation

    • Abstract: Anterior shoulder dislocation is a common condition that most orthopaedic surgeons will have to deal with in their practice. Nonoperative management of the initial traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation is likely to lead to a recurrent shoulder dislocation in more than 90% of cases in the younger active population. Recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation can persist even after instability surgery in certain cases. A detailed, accurate assessment of the patient is of paramount importance for successful treatment. This review aims to provide insight into key concepts to consider in the assessment of an anterior shoulder dislocation. Predisposing factors, clinical examination and the role of imaging in the assessment of an anterior shoulder dislocation will be reviewed. Level of evidence: Level 5
