Severity and Outcomes of Neurologic Deficits Associated with Pyogenic Spondylodiscitis: A Systematic Review

Naveed Nabizadeh, MD, Charles H Crawford III, MD, Steven D Glassman, MD, John R Dimar, MD and Leah Y Carreon, MD

Article Type: Systematic Review | First Published: September 06, 2021

Patients with advanced pyogenic spondylodiscitis can present with neurologic deficits, however, the prevalence, severity, and outcome of the neurologic deficits are not well known. A systematic review was performed to improve knowledge of this commonly encountered clinical scenario. A comprehensive search of databases including PubMed, Science Direct and Google Scholar from 2000- 2020 was performed. From 1478 articles, 75 were screened and 40 included. As the most commonly used classification fo...

The Role of Needle Fenestration with Platelet-Rich Plasma in Chronic Tennis Elbow with Indication of Partial Extensor Tendon Tear

Tracey L Hunter, Spencer W Sullivan, Struan H Coleman, Eric Brand, James J Kinderknecht and Vijay B Vad

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: February 24, 2021

Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is one of the most common elbow conditions in adults. Symptoms of chronic LE can cause severe discomfort and/or physical disability that is economically burdening to patients and health care costs. The purpose of this study is to assess treatment outcomes of pain and function for refractory extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) tendinosis after tendon fenestration with and without platelet-rich plasma (PRP). A specialized orthopaedic hospital conducted a retrospective ...

Chondroma in an Elderly Patient

Salvador Labrador, Jose Manuel Llamazares-Medrano and Jesús Guzmán-Revuelta

Article Type: Clinical Picture | First Published: May 27, 2020

A 68-year-old male patient presented to our Clinic with unilateral knee pain for a period of 5 months. He was following treatment with NSAID and Omeprazole with no good outcome. We performed an X-ray on the symptomatic knee (Figures 1 and Figure 2) and we observed in the Metaphysis of distal Femur a heavily calcified lesion, well demarcated and evenly distributed throughout. Recent Laboratory tests were unremarkable. We concluded that this lesion could correspond to a Chondroma of distal Femur.....

Risk of Osteonecrosis of the Jaw in Patients with Postmenopausal Osteoporosis: A Systematic Literature Review

Gloria Candelas, Virginia Villaverde, Petra Diaz, Mercedes Guerra and Antonio Naranjo

Article Type: SYSTEMATIC REVIEW | First Published: July 25, 2019

The studies retrieved by the above strategies were included if they met the following pre-established criteria. The patients studied had to be diagnosed of osteoporosis (all ages, both sexes), and they had to be taking Dmab. We measured the likelihood of having osteonecrosis of the jaw. We included in the search for systematic reviews randomised clinical trials (RCT) and cohort studies. We excluded articles on cancer or other disease other than osteoporosis, animal and basic science studies....

The Effect on Disc Height and Sagittal Alignment in 56 Consecutive Patients Undergoing Lateral Access Surgery

Donald A Deinlein, Sakthivel Rajaram, Jorge L Perez and Mason B Frazier

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 06, 2019

The lateral approach to the spine, for spinal fusion, has gained interest from spine surgeons in recent years. The approach is less invasive, with less blood loss, decreased morbidity, and decreases length of stay in the hospital. The procedure has been shown to allow indirect decompression of the spinal canal and the intervertebral foramen. Segmental interbody arthrodesis may result in improved coronal and sagittal balance....

Damage to the Rotator Cuff of the Shoulder and Tendon of the Long Biceps Head during Chronic Posttraumatic Instability of the Shoulder Joint

Danilenka Aleh and Makarevich Evgeny

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 19, 2018

The aim of our study was to study the frequency and relationship of damage to the rotational cuff of the shoulder and tendon of the long biceps head in the post-traumatic instability of the tendons of the long biceps head. By analyzing the data of clinical and instrumental examination methods, determine and describe the main damage options for the rotator cuff of the shoulder and tendon of the long head of the biceps in the post-traumatic instability of the shoulder joint by determining the freq...

Metabolic Diseases and Crystal Induced Arthropathies Technic of Non-Staining Histologic Sections - A Comparative Study of Standard Stains and Histochemical Reactions

Miklos Bely and Agnes Apathy

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 04, 2018

Metabolic diseases and crystal induced arthropathies are characterized by deposits of crystal and/or non-crystalline (amorphous) calcium phosphates in synovial membranes (synovium) and periarticular soft tissues. Bone and cartilage may also be involved, and crystals may be present in the synovial fluid as well. Foreign bodies and refractile artefacts may vary the histopathological findings. Different crystals (with or without foreign bodies and/or refractile artefacts) may exist simultaneously i...

The Biotenodesis Screw and Endobutton Technique for Repair for Acute Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture

Edward C Matthews, Mark D Brinsden, Andrew J Murphy and Paul M Guyver

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: July 05, 2018

The incidence of rupture of the distal biceps tendon appears to be increasing. Acute rupture usually occurs in men in the fourth to sixth decade, in the dominant arm with a higher incidence in smokers. It is thought to be a result of excessive eccentric tension as the arm is passively extended with force....

Radial MR Screen of the Sacroiliac Joints in the Lumbar Spine of Patients with Chronic Lower Back Pain

M Al-Mulla, V Babu, A Abdullah and W Mohammed

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: May 12, 2018

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can reliably detect inflammation and structural changes in sacroiliac joints (SIJs) in patients with lower back pain (LBP). However, patients with LBP are usually referred for MRI of the lower back (e.g. lumbar spine LS), and imaging of the SIJs is rarely requested for these patients. The aim of this work is to use radial MRI as an additional screening technique for SIJ pathology presenting in lumbar spine patients with chronic LBP....

Deltoid Compartment Syndrome following Shoulder Arthroscopy: A Case Report

Paul J Cagle Jr, Dave R Shukla and Bradford O Parsons

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 19, 2018

Acute deltoid compartment syndrome is a rare event. This is a report of a 70-year-old male who developed an acute deltoid compartment syndrome after a shoulder arthroscopy. Due to a mechanical heart valve, the patient was required to remain on anticoagulation for the procedure. A bony acromioplasty and arthroscopic biceps tenodesis were performed. On the first day after surgery increased swelling and pressure consistent with a hematoma was appreciated. The pressure caused increased deltoid compa...

Prevalence of Vertebral Body Deformities According to Genant's Classification in Patients with Non-Traumatic Lumbar or Dorsal Acute Pain

Guillén Astete CA , Pijoán Moratalla C, Quiñones Torres JR and Vázquez Díaz M

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 09, 2017

The existence of a vertebral body deformity is considered a relevant finding in order to start a secondary therapeutic prevention of osteoporosis in a population at risk. However, not all vertebral body deformities are properly identified and registered. In our experience, those, less striking, can be unnoticed. One of the most common radiographic studies of the axial skeleton is the lumbar and dorsal acute pain....
