BACKGROUND: Congenital absence of the menisci is a rare anatomical variation characterized by the absence or underdevelopment of one or both menisci in the knee joint. The menisci are crucial in load distribution, joint stability, and shock absorption. Understanding the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management of this condition is important for optimal patient care. CASE SUMMARY: A 27-year-old male with a long-standing history of knee pain underwent diagnostic arthroscopy, revealing a congenital absence of the meniscus...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Frederick William Wyatt, Oday Al-Dadah
BACKGROUND: Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and high tibial osteotomy (HTO) are well-established operative interventions in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. However, which intervention is more beneficial to patients with knee osteoarthritis remains unknown and a topic of much debate. Simultaneously, there is a paucity of research assessing the relationship between radiographic parameters of knee joint alignment and patient-reported clinical outcomes, preoperatively and following HTO or UKA...

The prevalence of diabetes mellitus and its associated complications, particularly diabetic foot pathologies, poses significant healthcare challenges and economic burdens globally. This review synthesises current evidence on the surgical management of the diabetic foot, focusing on the interplay between neuropathy, ischemia, and infection that commonly culminates in ulcers, infections, and, in severe cases, amputations. The escalating incidence of diabetes mellitus underscores the urgency for effective management strategies, as diabetic foot complications are a leading cause of hospital admissions among diabetic patients, significantly impacting morbidity and mortality rates...

Combined femoral and acetabular anteversion is the sum of femoral and acetabular anteversion, representing their morphological relationship in the axial plane. Along with the increasing understanding of hip dysplasia in recent years, numerous scholars have confirmed the role of combined femoral and acetabular anteversion in the pathological changes of hip dysplasia. At present, the reconstructive surgery for hip dysplasia includes total hip replacement and redirectional hip preservation surgery. As an important surgery index, combined femoral and acetabular anteversion have a crucial role in these surgeries...

BACKGROUND: Primary thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) osteoarthritis is one of the most common conditions encountered by hand surgeons. Of the vast number of operations that have been proposed, none have demonstrated results significantly superior to trapeziectomy alone. AIM: The purpose of our study was to determine why surgeons opt for their technique in treating CMC arthritis. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey of active members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand was conducted to evaluate the reasons behind their preferred technique in the treatment of isolated thumb CMC arthritis...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic fractures (PF) with concomitant injuries are on the rise due to an increase of high-energy trauma. Increase of the elderly population with age related comorbidities further complicates the management. Abdominal organ injuries are kindred with PF due to the proximity to pelvic bones. Presence of contrast blush (CB) on computed tomography in patients with PF is considered a sign of active bleeding, however, its clinical significance and association with outcomes is debatable...

We read and discussed the study entitled "Complication rates after direct anterior vs posterior approach for Hip Hemiarthroplasty in elderly individuals with femoral neck fractures" with great interest. The authors have done justice to the topic of comparison of anterior and posterior surgical approaches for bipolar hemiarthroplasty which has been an everlasting debate in the existing literature. However, there are certain aspects of this study that need clarification from the authors.

BACKGROUND: Current osteoarthritis (OA) treatments focus on symptom relief without addressing the underlying disease process. In regenerative medicine, current treatments have limitations. In regenerative medicine, more research is needed for intra-articular stromal vascular fraction (SVF) injections in OA, including dosage optimization, long-term efficacy, safety, comparisons with other treatments, and mechanism exploration. AIM: To compare the efficacy of intra-articular SVF with corticosteroid (ICS) injections in patients with primary knee OA...

Knees are the most commonly impacted weight-bearing joints in osteoarthritis (OA), affecting millions of people worldwide. With increasing life spans and obesity rates, the incidence of knee OA will further increase, leading to a significant increase in the economic burden. Conventional treatment modalities utilized to manage knee OA have limitations. Over the last decade, the role of various autologous peripheral blood-derived orthobiologics (APBOs) for the treatment of knee OA has been extensively investigated...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Konstantinos Tsikopoulos, Konstantinos Sidiropoulos
The practice of implementing an antibiotic holiday before the second stage of hip or knee arthroplasty is currently controversial due to limited evidence for this approach, as per the International Consensus Meeting 2018 on Musculoskeletal Infection. A greater understanding of this issue could augment the quality of Alrayes and Sukeik's mini-review (2023) on diagnosing, managing, and treating periprosthetic knee infections. However, a significant lack of literature exists concerning the optimal duration for the antibiotic holiday, calling for more research before establishing any clinical guidelines...

BACKGROUND: De-Quervain's tenosynovitis is a disorder arising from the compression and irritation of the first dorsal extensor compartment of the wrist. Patients who fail conservative treatment modalities are candidates for surgical release. However, risks with surgery include damage to the superficial radial nerve and an incomplete release due to inadequate dissection. Currently, there is a paucity of literature demonstrating the exact anatomic location of the first dorsal extensor compartment in reference to surface anatomy...

In this editorial I comment on the article by Ahmed et al published in a recent issue of the World J Orthop 2023; 14: 784-790. It is well known that patients who have undergone a liver transplant (LT) may need to have a total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) implanted. Ahmed et al stated that the mortality rate in these patients was similar to the one of the general population. However, there are three articles previously published that found higher mortality in LT patients who experienced THA/TKA than in the general population (individuals without LT)...

BACKGROUND: The four components that make up the current dual-mobility artificial hip joint design are the femoral head, the inner liner, the outer liner as a metal cover to prevent wear, and the acetabular cup. The acetabular cup and the outer liner were constructed of 316L stainless steel. At the same time, the inner liner was made of ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). As this new dual-mobility artificial hip joint has not been researched extensively, more tribological research is needed to predict wear...

Surgical site infections (SSI) following total joint arthroplasty pose a significant concern for both providers and patients across the globe. Currently, administration of antimicrobial antibiotic prophylaxis is used throughout the world to reduce the incidence of SSI. However, the correct dosage and frequency of administration remains debatable. In this editorial, we emphasized the determination of the effect of administration of weight-adjusted antimicrobial antibiotic prophylaxis regime on the incidence of SSI and postoperative dosage reduction compared to the conventionally used regime during total joint arthroplasty...

BACKGROUND: Enzymatic fasciotomy with collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) has revolutionized the treatment for Dupuytren's contracture (DC). Despite its benefits, the long-term outcomes remain unclear. This study presented a comprehensive 10-year follow-up assessment of the enduring effects of CCH on patients with DC. AIM: To compare the short-term (12 wk) and long-term (10 years) outcomes on CCH treatment in patients with DC. METHODS: A cohort of 45 patients was treated with CCH at the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint and the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint and underwent systematic re-evaluation...
