A differential diagnosis with emphasis on the common indications for revision should be utilized in the workup of painful total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The physician should identify the exact etiology of the patient's pain to maximize outcomes from treatment. Evaluation for infection should be completed using the Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS) criteria. When common causes of revision TKA do not appear to be the cause of the pain, less likely causes should be not be ignored. Further advancements such as pressure sensing devices may be able to improve patient satisfaction and decrease the incidence of pain following TKA...

Giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB) is a rare tumor of the bone that is locally invasive. Surgery is the primary treatment that is usually done by intralesional curettage. In pelvis and spine surgery may be associated with high rate of complications, recently, Denosumab has been proposed for the treatment of these tumors in latter anatomical regions. Denosumab may be administered alone or as an adjuvant to surgery. This study aimed to assess the treatment effects of Denosumab in patients with unresectable GCTB...

PURPOSE: Machine learning (ML) algorithms to predict cancer survival have recently been reported for a number of sarcoma subtypes, but none have investigated undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS). ML is a powerful tool that has the potential to better prognosticate UPS. METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was queried for cases of histologically confirmed undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS) (n = 665)...

Most studies comparing medial pivot to the posterior stabilised (PS) systems sacrifice the PCL. It is unknown whether retaining the PCL in the Medial Congruent (MC) system may provide further benefit compared to the more commonly used PS system. A retrospective review of a single-surgeon's registry data comparing 44 PS and 26 MC with PCL retained (MC-PCLR) TKAs was performed. Both groups had similar baseline demographics. The PS and MC-PCLR groups had similar pre-operative range of motion (ROM) (PS:104º ± 20º vs...

BACKGROUND: Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is commonly used to treat rotator cuff arthropathy. In the deltopectoral approach for RSA, the subscapularis tendon is (partly) detached. The clinical effects of subscapularis reattachment are still under debate. An observational study was performed to evaluate the clinical effects of subscapularis tendon reattachment on the mid- to long-term following RSA. METHODS: In this study, 40 patients for a total of 46 shoulders with a reverse shoulder prosthesis participated...

PURPOSE: Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis (PVNS) is a proliferative disease arising from the synovial membrane, mainly affects large joints such as the knee (almost 80% of total). Prostheses implanted in PVNS osteoarthritis show a higher revision rate when compared to primary osteoarthritis, due to the recurrence of disease and the overall surgical complications. The purpose of this systematic review is to summarize and compare indications, clinical and functional outcomes, disease-related and surgical-related complications of total knee arthroplasty in PVNS osteoarthritis...

The aim of the present study is to systematically review the current literature about diagnosis and treatment of acute inflammatory sacroiliitis in pregnant or post-partum women. A systematic search was carried out according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines. Data about clinical presentation, diagnosis methods and treatment strategies were retrieved from included studies and reported in a table. After screening, five studies on 34 women were included; they were all affected by acute inflammatory sacroiliitis...

INTRODUCTION: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a successful surgery, but despite the advancements in anesthesiology and orthopedics, sometimes blood transfusions are required to manage the anemia due to the blood loss, involving a substantial number of patients. The aim of this retrospective comparative study is to define how the choice of the surgical approach, either direct anterior (DA) or posterolateral (PL), may influence the postoperative blood loss and the need for transfusion in THA...

PURPOSE: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the medium-term clinical and radiographic results of current generation metal-on-metal resurfacing prostheses performed through anterolateral approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-seven hips in 52 patients underwent resurfacing arthroplasty. Two patients died from unrelated causes, leaving 55 hips in 35 males (3 bilateral) and 15 females (2 bilateral), with a mean age at surgery of 56.2 years (range, 27-70 years)...

PURPOSE: The management of overriding distal forearm fractures is still controversial. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of immediate closed reduction and cast immobilization (CRCI) at the emergency department (ED) using equimolar nitrous oxide (eN2 O2 ) as conscious sedation, and without the use fluoroscopic assistance. METHODS: Sixty patients with overriding distal forearm fracture were included in the study. All procedures were performed in the ED without fluoroscopic assistance...

Limb length discrepancies (LLD) are quite frequent, especially in lower limbs. The evolution of the available devices and the refinement of the techniques for correcting the differences in limb length have progressively improved the approach to these deformities. Nevertheless, several points still remain debated. The aim of the study was to investigate the Italian pediatric orthopedic surgeons' choices in approaching and treating LLD in both lower and upper limbs. A survey on the treatment of limb length discrepancy was sent to a group of 11 Italian orthopedic centers, specialising in limb lengthening and belonging to the Italian Society of Pediatric Orthopedics and Trauma and the Italian Society of External Fixation...

PURPOSE: This study focused on a comparison of mid-term clinical, functional and radiographic outcomes of adults treated by open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), radial head prosthesis (RHP) and resection (RHR). METHODS: The retrospective evaluation concerned 47 surgically treated patients after a mean follow-up of 53 months. All patients were grouped according to the surgical procedure performed: 15 in the RHP group, 16 in the ORIF group and 16 in the RHR group...

PURPOSE: Total knee replacement (TKR) failure represents a hard challenge for knee surgeons. TKR failure can be managed in revision with different constraint, related with soft and bone knee damages. The choice of the right constraint for every failure cause represents a not summarized entity. The purpose of this study is identifying distribution of different constraints in revision TKR (rTKR) for failure cause and the overall survival. METHODS: A registry study based on the Emilia Romagna Register of the Orthopaedic Prosthetic Implants (called RIPO) was performed with a selection of 1432 implants, in the period between 2000 and 2019...

PURPOSE: Injuries of the scapholunate ligament (SL) and of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) represent the main ligament injuries of the traumatic wrist. A double injury of the SL and TFCC ligaments is quite common in the trauma setting, and clinical examination is fundamental. MRI allows to detection of a TFCC and SL ligament injury, but wrist arthroscopy is still the gold standard for diagnosis. We present the clinical results of the combined reconstruction of chronic scapholunate ligament and TFCC injury...

BACKGROUND: Intra-capsular femoral neck fractures (FNF) are commonly encountered in trauma settings and are associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. One of the most used methods of FNF treatment is the use of multiple cannulated screws. Many different screw constructs are reported in the literature, with no evidence of superiority of one construct over others. We present a series of patients treated by one senior surgeon with three cannulated screws positioned in a specific configuration...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of the rod-to-rod distance on the mechanical stability of single-rod and double-rod external fixator frames. METHODS:  Four different constructs, one single-rod and three double-rod constructs with different rod-rod distances, were subjected to the axial, bending, and torsional forces. The stiffness of different configurations was calculated. RESULTS:  Single-rod configuration had statistically the lowest stiffness when subjected to the axial, bending, and torsional forces...
