  • Comparative study between quadriceps tendon sling and semitendinosus graft
           for medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction

    • Authors: Ahmed HT Waly

      Background Acute patellar dislocation is a common knee injury. The main injured structure is the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL). This ligament is the main static stabilizer against lateral patellar dislocation. Many surgical techniques have been described for the management of MPFL tear. The gold standard graft used for reconstruction is the hamstring. This study was done to compare the results of quadriceps tendon sling with semitendinosus graft for MPFL reconstruction (MPFLR). Patients and methods A prospective comparative study was held on 62 patients in El-Hadra University hospital between March 2018 and November 2019. Patients were divided into two groups. Group A had quadriceps graft and group B had semitendinosus graft for MPFLR. Patients were matched for age, sex, and body mass index. All cases were assessed clinically and functionally over 12 months of follow-up. Results There was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups regarding Lysholm, Tegner, International Knee Documentation Committee, Visual Analog Scale, and Kujala scores. However, there was a statistically significant difference regarding the SCAR score. Conclusion Quadriceps tendon sling is a reliable alternative for MPFLR, especially in patients with small patellae or previous anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

      Background Several graft options exist for ACL. The traditional options are patellar tendon (PT), hamstring tendons (HT) and quadriceps tendon (QT). Nevertheless, they have some disadvantages. In recent decades, several efforts were exerted to find more graft sources for ACL reconstruction. One of these grafts is the peroneus longus tendon (PLT) autograft. This study was done to compare the results of soft tissue grafts; HT, PLT and QT for ACLR. Patients and Methods This is a prospective comparative study over 75 patients with deficient anterior cruciate ligament. Patients were admitted to El Hadra University Hospital between June 2019 till September 2020. Patients were classified randomly into 3 groups. The first group (Group A) were treated with ACLR using hamstring tendon (n=25). The second group (Group B) were treated using peroneus longus autograft (n=25). The third group (Group C) were treated using quadriceps tendon graft. All groups were matched for age, gender and duration from injury to surgery. Functional evaluation was done using Lysholm score, modified Cincinnati scale, IKDC score and VAS. The functional score of the ankle was assessed with the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Score and the Foot and Ankle Disability Index score at the end of follow up. Results There was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups regarding the Lysholm, Tegner, IKDC, VAS, Kujala scores. However, there was a statistically significant difference regarding the SCAR score. Conclusion Peroneus longus tendon is a reliable alternative for ACL reconstruction especially in patients with inadequate or prematurely amputated hamstring autograft.

      Background and aim A rotator cuff injury has a significant effect on the quality of life and overall health of patients. Surgical treatment for rotator cuff disease has been found to enhance general health and shoulder discomfort. The surgical repair of rotator cuff tears can be divided into three categories: open, mini-open, and arthroscopic. Independent studies comparing the long-term success of arthroscopically repaired rotator cuff injuries in terms of cuff integrity and clinical outcomes found that arthroscopically repaired rotator cuff injuries have success rates comparable to mini-open and open operations. As a result, the goal of this study was to compare the outcomes of open versus arthroscopic rotator cuff repair operations. Patients and methods A prospective cohort study was performed on 40 rotator cuff repair cases over a period of 18 months from January 2019 to June 2020 after obtaining approval from the local ethics committee. All included patients were divided into two groups: group A included 20 patients who had a single raw, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, and group B included 20 patients who had an open rotator cuff repair by anchor sutures and acromioplasty. Data of shoulder side, admission date, discharge date, hospital stay duration, postoperative analgesia, procedure duration, intraoperative and postoperative complications, visual analog scale (VAS), and simple shoulder test were obtained for all patients. Results There were no significant changes in pain score VAS preoperatively and postoperatively or intraoperative and postoperative complications between the groups tested. Conclusion Arthroscopy repair and open repair are associated with similar clinical outcomes. No statistically significant differences were found in outcomes of postoperative simple shoulder test score, pain score VAS, and complications.

      Background Carpometacarpal (CMC) joint fracture–dislocation of the second to the fifth finger is a rare hand injury associated with high-energy trauma. Due to severe swelling and overlapping of bones on the radiograph of the wrist–hand, dislocations are missed. We reported on a series of eight patients with CMC joint fracture–dislocation treated with closed reduction and percutaneous K-wire fixation. Patients and methods Eight cases of CMC joint fracture–dislocation were retrospectively studied. All patients were treated with closed reduction and fixation with K-wire. Functional assessment was done with Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (QuickDASH) score. Results The average QuickDASH score was observed to have improved from 75.76 to 1.9 from 6 weeks to 14 months of duration. Of the eight patients, three patients had a QuickDASH score of 0 at the end of 14 months. Conclusions Careful hand examination and radiographic assessment are necessary to avoid a missed diagnosis of CMC joint fracture–dislocation. Early closed reduction and fixation lead to excellent recovery of hand function.

      Introduction Blood loss during total joint replacement has serious implications on patients affecting their ability to immediately start the postoperative enhanced recovery program. Tranexamic acid (TA) is well known for its ability to reduce blood loss during arthroplasty. Vitamin K has an important physiological role in the clotting cascade, but its action is delayed and dose sensitive. Study settings and design A prospective comparative study conducted in Benha University Hospital. Patients and methods In all, 150 patients were randomly divided into three groups, each included 50 patients. Group A received both TA and vitamin K1, group B received only vitamin K1, and group C received only TA. Perioperative blood parameters tested included hemoglobin level, hematocrit percentage, platelet count, prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, and fibrinogen level. Intraoperative and postoperative blood losses and the amount of blood transfusion were reported. A surgeon satisfaction score was created to assess the degree of intraoperative bleeding. Results The mean perioperative differences in blood parameters and amount of blood loss were evaluated with the post-hoc test. Group A showed a statistically significant less changes in blood parameters and less blood loss than the other groups, and group B showed less postoperative blood losses. Conclusion Combined administration of TA and vitamin K with cementless total hip replacement proved efficient in reducing intraoperative and postoperative blood losses and the need for blood transfusion. This was reflected on the patient’s ability to start the enhanced recovery program immediately, reduced the duration of postoperative hospital stay, and the overall cost of operation.

      Objectives In elderly patients, distal femoral fractures are mostly related to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis weakens the supracondylar region, resulting in complex intra-articular fractures and metaphyseal comminution. The prevalence of knee osteoarthritis (OA) in this age group may affect the final functional outcome after fixation. The study assessed the relationship between pre-injury OA stage and postoperative functional outcome after fracture fixation by monoaxial lock plates. Patients and methods A prospective study was conducted between November 2016 and May 2019. A total of 38 cases of distal femoral joint fractures, including 18 extra-articular fractures (group-1; 33-A) with an average age of 67.6 ± 4 years and 20 cases of complete articular fractures (group-2; 33-C) with mean age of 69.2 ± 2.9 years, were included. Domestic fall was the mode of trauma, and the fractures were treated with a monoaxial distal femoral locked compression plate through a mini-invasive incision. Pre-injury knee conditions were assessed according to Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score. The final 1-year outcome was assessed using the Knee Society Score systems. Results In extra-joint fractures, the mean healing time was 17.6 ± 1.1 weeks (16–20 weeks), and in the complete articular fractures, the mean healing time was 23 ± 2.3 weeks (20–30 weeks). Complications were recorded as a single case of nonunion development that needed revision and grafting, and the union was achieved 20 weeks later. Joint line pain was observed in 15 (39%) of all patients. The final result of the Knee Society Score system for group 1 fractures was 74.7 ± 8.3 (60–90), and the mean for group 2 was 65.2 ± 9.5 (50–80). P value was less than 0.001. A clear correlation between the degree of pre-injury OA (Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score) and the final functional outcome (P=0.7) was identified, regardless of the severity of the fracture. Conclusion Monoaxial locking plate fixation for distal femoral fractures in the elderly population is a stable construct to stabilize this osteoporotic bone. It allows sound healing; however, the functional outcome is affected by the pre-injury joint OA.

      Background Adults commonly develop isolated patellofemoral arthritis (PFA). Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was beneficial in the conservative treatment of tibiofemoral knee osteoarthritis. This study compares patient complaints prior to and following PRP injection for isolated PFA during conservative treatment. Patients and methods The study included 18 female patients with unilateral PFA between the ages of 25 and 40. They received a single dose of PRP injections after failing to respond to conservative treatment. The outcome measures, which included the visual analog scale and Kujala scores, were compared with a matched group of 18 patients managed conservatively but successfully. Both groups got the same physiotherapy treatment and kept up with it, until the final assessment for a year. Results At the final follow-up, the PRP group’s visual analog scale was significantly improved compared with their pre-injection status, with a P value of 0.001. However, no statistically significant difference was evident between the PRP and the non-PRP groups that improved with conservative treatment (P>0.9). Comparable results were present between the two groups’ Kujala scores. Conclusion Patients with isolated PFA who do not respond to conservative treatment may benefit from a single PRP injection, which may postpone or eliminate the need for surgical treatment. Level of evidence: III, a retrospective case–control study.

      Background Tears of the distal biceps tendon are unusual and most often result from an injury or lifting a heavy object. These tears are usually complete and the muscle is separated from the bone and retracted back, causing weakness in supination and mid-prone elbow flexion. We present our results of patients undergoing repairs of these tears using the tension slide technique through a single longitudinal anterior incision who were followed up for a minimum of 1 year. Patients and methods A total of 17 patients with acute distal biceps tendon rupture were treated surgically by two surgeons, at two independent centers, using the tension slide technique (Arthrex) between 2017 and 2019. Patients were evaluated retrospectively at a minimum of 1-year follow-up using the patient-reported outcomes Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH), Oxford elbow score (OES) and EQ-5D-5L. Results The average age at the time of injury was 49 years. All patients were right-hand dominant. Eleven injuries were on the right and remaining on the left side. All patients were males, and there was no documented history of anabolic steroid use. The average time to surgery, following injury, was 6 weeks. The mean postoperative DASH score was 4.4, the average OES was 49.17, and mean European quality of life five dimension (EQ5D) Vas was 84. The elbow range of motion (ROM) was comparable to the healthy contralateral side. There were no reported major complications, although we did have two (11%) minor complications: one case with delayed wound healing and the second patient with a delayed infection, treated with oral antibiotics for 14 days. Conclusions The utilization of the tension slide technique for repair of acute distal tendon biceps rupture using Endobutton and interference screw is safe. The complications were minor, and the function was excellent as reflected with OES and DASH scores.

      Acetabular fractures in pregnant patients are usually rare scenarios. The management of traumatized pregnant patients is challenging due to their specific physiological and anatomical body changes, the possible exposure to teratogenic radiation, and risky therapeutic interventions. We report a 27-year-old pregnant patient with a gestational age of 22 weeks presented with a T-shape acetabular fracture after road traffic accident. The fracture was surgically managed by open reduction and internal fixation using combined posterior and modified Stoppa approaches to the acetabulum. A normal viable infant was delivered through cesarian delivery 10 weeks after trauma. Modified Stoppa approach for acetabulum can be used safely in acetabular fracture fixation in pregnant patients with less invasiveness, similar scar of cesarian section, better visualization of the quadrilateral plate of the acetabulum, and less maternal morbidity.

      Hydatid disease is a zoonosis that is caused by parasites that belong to the Echinococcus species of the Taeniidae family of cestodes. Echinococcus cysts are caused by dog tapeworms and it is found in many low income areas. We present a case of a South African woman with extensive hydatid disease of the pelvis.
