  • A mesenchymal chondrosarcoma of the right tibia in a young man requires
           disarticulation of the right knee: A case study

    • Abstract: Chondrosarcoma is a malignant tumor occupying the 2nd position in terms of frequency, all ages combined, after osteosarcoma [1]. Epidemiological data extracted from cancer registries in Europe indicate an annual incidence of ~0.1/100,000 inhabitants [2].

  • A Concordance study of CT densitometry with DXA densitometry

    • Abstract: Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by compromised bone strength resulting in an increased risk of fracture [1]. Bone Mineral Density (BMD) is responsible for 60-90% of the strength of bone [1] and the current standard of assessment is by Dual-energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA). DXA generates T-scores of the lumbar spine, femoral neck, or hip by calculating the difference between the individual’s BMD and the population mean, divided by the standard deviation of the reference population. The World Health Organisation (WHO) classifies osteoporosis at a T-score of or below -2.5.

  • Chondrosarcoma of the right iliopubic branch incidentally discovered:
           About a case

    • Abstract: Chondrosarcoma is the most common primary malignant bone tumor after myeloma and osteosarcoma, ranking third. It may be in second place in terms of frequency after osteosarcoma if we consider myeloma as a tumor of bone marrow cells rather than a bone tumor because it is a hematopoietic derivation [1].

  • Evaluation of the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate in patients undergoing Total
           Hip Arthroplasty by the Anterior Approach using a Rapid Recovery Protocol
           during a COVID-19 pandemic in a Public Hospital in the State of São Paulo

    • Abstract: The World Health Organization (WHO) declared, on January 30, 2020, that the outbreak of the disease caused by the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Importance - the highest level of alert of the Organization, as provided for in the International Health Regulations. On March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was characterized by the WHO as a pandemic and since then the world has been going through an unprecedented period. The pandemic is interfering with all aspects of everyday life, especially in the area of ​​health. Surgical practice was directly affected by the suspension of elective procedures and the prioritization of urgent and emergency surgeries as a way to free up beds for patients infected with the disease. New coronavirus. The script for resumption of elective surgery after this COVID-19 pandemic must be progressive and cautious. Elective surgery should be performed in COVID-free facilities and the hospital stay should be as short as possible. For safety reasons, patients considered for surgery should be carefully selected according to status/exposure to COVID-19 infection, age, ASA physical status/risk factor classification system, socio-professional status and surgical indication. Therefore, in this study, we will demonstrate the positive impact on surgical resumption using a rapid recovery protocol combined with a minimally invasive technique (AMIS) for total hip arthroplasty during the period of worldwide pandemic for SARS-CoV-2.

  • Total Hip Arthroplasty the best Intervention for Femur-neck fractures

    • Abstract: Fracture neck of femur is a common event in elderly people in India. Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) has established as the better choice of surgical intervention. There are two major surgical approaches for performing a total hip replacement 1) the posterior approach 2) the anterior approach. The posterior approach to total hip replacement is the most used method and allows the surgeon excellent visibility of the joint, more precise placement of implants and is minimally invasive. In India, cemented modular hemiarthroplasty is being promoted using a cost-effective Indian implant that has confirmed distinct advantage. While the common cause of Femur neck fractures are falls in bathrooms or slipper floors. We are reporting a case of Femur neck fracture, after alighting from a bus. Due to the inaccessibility of THA in rural India, patient had to be shifted to the state Hqs. The course of surgery, hospital stay and outcome of Left side Total Hip Replacement (THR) therapy in an elderly male with known comorbidities is being narrated. The patient had the shortest hospital stay of 5 days, was stable throughout the surgery, postoperative period, despite being diabetic and hypertensive and was back doing his normal activities within 6 months.

  • Total vertebrectomy through posterior approach for thoracic tumors

    • Abstract: Objective: To demonstrate the benefits and complications of the single posterior approach through bilateral costotransversectomy in the treatment of neoplastic disease of the thoracic spine.Methods: Twelve consecutive patients with thoracic spine tumors, who underwent single posterior approach with bilateral costotransversectomies were reviewed. Through posterior extrapleural access, total vertebrectomy and reconstruction were performed. In reconstruction, a cage was used anteriorly, and a pedicular screw fixation was used posteriorly. The minimum follow-up was sixteen months. The parameters analyzed were pain, neurological and functional capacity, survival time, fixation stability, and complications. Results: All patients had improvement in their pain or in their functional capability. Among those with a preoperative neurological deficit, 71.4% showed improvement of at least one degree at postoperative evaluation. There was no functional or neurological decline in any patient. The observed complications were: one adult respiratory stress syndrome, one excessive bleeding, one pneumothorax, one infection and one local recurrence. All but one of these complications was reversed with appropriate treatment. Conclusion: The posterolateral approach through costotransversectomy was safe and secure method for the resection and reconstruction of thoracic vertebrae affected by neoplastic disease.

  • Functional progression in post-osteoporotic fracture: A case study

    • Abstract: Introduction: Osteoporosis is characterized by a loss of bone mass along with alterations in its structure, with subsequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fractures, ultimately reinforcing the importance of its prevention by the reduction of the risk of falling.In this paper we propose to analyze the functional progression of a patient, integrated in a multidisciplinary program (TOMBO-Therapeutic Occupational Multidisciplinary approach to the Benefit of Osteoporosis), after an osteoporotic fracture.Methods: Retrospective descriptive case-study of the first patient included in the TOMBO program. Data were gathered for Time Up and Go Test (TUGT), Sit to Stand in 30 secs. (SS-30), 10m Walking Test (10m-WT), Barthel Index (BI) and Morse Scale (MS) in 3 different moments: baseline (ward, at discharge: M0), 2 and 6-months after surgery (multidisciplinary appointments: MD2, MD6).Results: TUGT- M0: no capability; MD2: 18,8 secs.; MD6: 8 seg. SS-30 - M0: no capability; MD2: 9 stands; MD6: 10 stands. 10m-WT - M0: 30 secs.; MD2: 13 secs.; MD6: 8 secs. BI - M0: 60; MD2, 80; MD6: 100. MS - M0: 85, MD2: 50; MD6: 15.Conclusion: This case-study revealed us that the first patient admitted to this innovative multidisciplinary approach improved some functional parameters (level of dependency and risk of falling) as shown by its favorable progression on the tests and scales applied.

  • IV. Bisphosphonates promote healing of complicated stress fractures in the

    • Abstract: Delayed healing of stress fractures constitutes a significant clinical problem causing pain and disability for the patients affected. The vast majority heal after immobilization of the extremity affected, but a certain small number of patients display delayed union despite standard treatment, resulting in prolonged disability and usually end up needing orthopedic procedures to get symptomatic relief. All stress fractures exhibit Bone Marrow Edema or Bone Marrow Lesions (BMLs) with and without fracture lines on MRI, and in cases of delayed union these lesions persist. Thus, it is conceivable that BML formation might contribute to non-union. Previous studies on transient osteoporosis and osteoarthritis have demonstrated that bisphosphonates can reduce BMLs. We therefore wanted to test, whether treatment with IV. Bisphosphonates could promote healing of such fractures. In this study we report our clinical experience and the results obtained after treating 8 patients exhibiting delayed healing an off label protocol using two Zoledronic acid infusions (given 3 months apart). Seven female and one male patient (aged 30-72) were enrolled. All had signs of non-union for more than 12 months (defined as continued pain, disability and persistent BMLs on MRI). Pain was monitored using VAS (1-10) and MRI was performed in six of the patients at baseline, 3, 6 and 12 months after the first infusion. All patients received Ca (0.5-1 g Ca per day) and vitamin D supplementation (800-1000 IE per day).All patients experienced clinical healing with significant reduction of pain at the fracture site and improvement of ambulation within 1-3 months after the first infusion. 4 patients experienced further reducgtion of pain after the second infusion. At 6 months, ambulatory functions were completely restored in all patients and a highly significant reduction of VAS scores from an average of 7.3 before treatment to 1.1 at 6 months and 0,9 at 12 months (P<0,0001) could be demonstrated. The alleviation of pain was accompanied by reduction or total resolution of BMLs on MRI. Except for 2 cases of flu-like symptoms after the first infusion, no adverse effects were recorded. In conclusion, In conclusion, 2 infusions of zoledronic acid (5 mg) given 3 months apart, may emerge as a possible treatment modality of stress fractures in the foot showing delayed union, and could potentially reduce the need for more extensive surgical intervention in such complicated cases. This small observational pilot study needs to be corroborated in a larger randomized, controlled trial.

  • Uncovering secrets of the beauty bone: A comprehensive review of anatomy
           and regional anesthesia techniques of clavicle surgeries

    • Abstract: The clavicle is the most frequently fractured bone in humans. General anesthesia with or without Regional Anesthesia (RA) is most frequently used for clavicle surgeries due to its complex innervation. Many RA techniques, alone or in combination, have been used for clavicle surgeries. These include interscalene block, cervical plexus (superficial and deep) blocks, SCUT (supraclavicular nerve + selective upper trunk) block, and pectoral nerve blocks (PEC I and PEC II). The clavipectoral fascial plane block is also a safe and simple option and replaces most other RA techniques due to its lack of side effects like phrenic nerve palsy or motor block of the upper limb. We present a comprehensive review of anatomy and RA techniques of clavicle surgeries. This review will help readers understand the functional anatomy and nature of clavicle fractures, and apply an algorithmic approach to procedure-specific blocks for complexly innervated structures like clavicle.

  • Association of different Demographic characteristics with Hip
           Osteoarthritis patients attending the different Hospitals across the
           Karachi and Quetta

    • Abstract: Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is the most frequent and common among all degenerative joint disorders and affecting huge number of individuals. Older females and low income people are more likely to develop Hip OA. A cross sectional survey was conducted in different hospitals of Karachi & Quetta, Pakistan from July to September 2019. A self-constructed proforma was used among all 392 already diagnosed patients to collect the data and Spss version 23 was used to analyze the data. In demographic Characterstics the age, gender and household income were significantly associated with Hip OA (p<0.05). The study concluded that the people who were older, belongs to female gender and with low house hold income were found physically restrictive due to the hip OA. Older females and people with low income should be prioritized for the treatment of hip OA in order to reduce the restrictiveness from their activities of daily life and to enhance their physical functional capacity.

  • A review on finite element analysis of the anterior cruciate ligament

    • Abstract: A significant number of papers relatively to the investigation made on Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction (ACLR) has been published in orthopaedic related journals. Finite Element (FE) Analysis (FEA) has been used to predict the performance of biomechanical-biomedical systems as well as the effect of clinical factors on the ACLR success. This research tool presents some advantages relatively to experimental studies in assessing stresses and strains in soft tissues of the knee joint. By interpreting correctly FE results, it is possible to extrapolate them to clinical situations. This article reviews papers published from 2016 until nowadays on FEA for ACLR studies searched in Google Scholar, Medline and PubMed databases. Only studies that addressed surgery techniques, type and size of grafts, tunnel geometry and orientation, and fixation devices are reviewed and presented.

  • Biomechanical assessment in HAV treatment

    • Abstract: Hallux Abductus Valgus (HAV) is a pathology that affects the first metatarsophalangeal joint, in which there is a medial displacement of the metatarsal and a lateral deviation of the hallux, causing joint dysfunction and disability in the patient. There are two types of treatments for this condition (conservative and surgical), and both require an exhaustive biomechanical assessment, since biomechanics are the main cause of this deformity.The main objective of the article is the development of a biomechanical examination and assessment algorithm to be carried out systematically in patients with HAV.

  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1 Produced by Hematoma Formation after
           Blood Donation: A Case Report

    • Abstract: The occurrence of hematoma and bruise formation, accounting for the majority of donation-related complications in the arm, rarely results in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). We report a 24-year-old man who presented with CRPS on his right upper limb two months later due to hematoma and bruising formation just after a blood donation following with immediate performance of strenuous exercise in the upper limbs. Triple phase bone scan, one of the bone scintigraphic studies, revealed positive findings and was compatible with the symptoms of CRPS, e.g. hyperalgesia, swelling and discoloration. The potentially disabling condition, however, ended up with a thankfully benign outcome because of our early finding and proper treatment that included three-day oral prednisolone and two-week physiotherapy and occupational rehabilitation. To our knowledge, CRPS produced by donation-related complications with subsequent hematoma and bruise due to vigorous exercise is rare. CRPS should be taken into consideration in a blood donor who demonstrated allodynia because of performing heavy exercise immediately after blood donation.

  • Anatomical and Technical Considerations of "Dual Subsartorial Block"
           (DSB), A Novel Motor-sparing Regional Analgesia Technique for Total Knee

    • Abstract: Background: The modernization of arthroplasty has paved the way for the resurgence of ultrasound-guided regional analgesia (RA) techniques. The evolution of newer RA techniques aids in reducing postoperative pain considerably as well as facilitates early ambulation and discharge. “Dual Subsartorial Block (DSB)” is recently described as a novel procedure-specific, motor-sparing, and opioid-sparing RA technique for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery. This review article highlights the innervations covered by DSB based on the anatomical considerations and its suitability for providing analgesic coverage in TKA with medial approaches. Methodology: We describe anatomical considerations based on the available literature about the anatomy related to the femoral triangle, adductor canal, and subsartorial region. The technical consideration of the DSB is based on our observations of the ongoing study on patients undergoing TKA with medial approaches. However, other details of the study are not part of this article.Results: After studying the anatomical and technical aspects of the DSB, it is possible to cover almost all procedure-specific innervations of TKA surgeries with the DSB. Our observations and statistical analysis found DSB as a procedure-specific, motor-sparing, and opioid-sparing RA technique. Discussion: We describe the complex anatomy of the femoral triangle and adductor canal block along with sonoanatomical variations of various subsartorial regions. We also elaborate on the technical details, analgesic coverage, and possible complications of DSB.
