Abstract: Randomized single-blinded controlled clinical trial. Patients and methods: This study was carried out on 40 patients diagnosed with end-stage osteoarthritis and underwent TKA. Patients are randomly allocated into 2 equal groups: Simultaneous bilateral total knee group and staged bilateral total knee group. All patients were operated on

Abstract: Distal radius fractures represent approximately one-sixth of all fractures presenting in the emergency room. Different fixation options have been described. This study compared two methods for displaced intra-articular distal radius fracture fixation, namely closed reduction and Kirschner wire augmented external fixation versus open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with a locked volar plate.

Abstract: Three patients with SLAP injury and suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome were treated from January 2017 to January 2018. There were 2 males and 1 female, aged from 28 to 33 years. All patients underwent arthroscopic suprascapular nerve release, repair of SLAP injury and cystectomy. The symptoms and muscle strength recovery were observed.

Abstract: To investigate effect of double button plate fixation in the treatment of nonunion of patella fracture. One patient with nonunion of patella fracture was treated with double button plate fixation. The operation and hospital stay time was 70 minutes and 5 days respectively. Range of motion (ROM) and knee society scores (KSS) was related to a greater increase. Patella fracture was unhealing after 21 weeks operation.

Abstract: Proximal humerus fractures with increasing prevalence in the geriatric age group are treated in a wide range from nonoperative treatment to arthroplasty and the treatment issue is still controversial. Developments in proximal humeral locking plate technology have increased the plate osteosynthesis option. Although surgical position in shoulder arthroscopy is as controversial as fracture treatment, osteosynthesis with locking plate is performed in the beach chair and in the supine position. In our clinical experience, the osteosynthesis with a locking plate was performed in beach chair position.

Abstract: In knee arthroscopy, two portals were traditionally used to perform surgery. In the last decade, the novel technique of single-portal knee arthroscopy has been investigated with promising results. This randomized control trial comparing singleportal to double-portal knee arthroscopy reports surgical time as the primary outcome. Secondly, post-operative knee function for up to 12 months is measured using a validated questionnaire. Third, post-operative pain scores and medication use are also reported.

Abstract: The Wiltse approach ligamentotaxis (WALT) is a combination of paravertebral muscle natural gap access and posterior longitudinal ligament tension, which can achieve good fracture repositioning and indirect spinal canal decompression, thus avoiding the disadvantages of traditional posterior direct decompression approach. This paper provides a detailed explanation and analysis of WALT through clinical cases.

Abstract: Displaced posterior wall fractures and or posterior column fractures are not infrequent injuries of acetabulum and stable fixation are the goals of operative management when indicated, outcome of surgical treatment depends on many patient and fracture factors.

Abstract: Sacral chordoma is a tumor that corresponds to 1 to 4% of all malignant bone tumors in the axial skeleton; It consists of a silent and slow-growing mass that requires radical treatment due to its high potential for local and metastatic invasion, its surgical treatment and management decision constitutes a challenge for the surgeon who faces it given the morbidity and affectation in the quality of life of the patient who in most cases is asymptomatic

Abstract: Hip dislocations can occur through various mechanisms. Although native hip dislocations are uncommon, increasing rates of total hip arthroplasty has translated to prosthetic hip dislocations being encountered more frequently, especially after revision surgery. Emergency room physicians employ a myriad of techniques to reduce these dislocations with success rates ranging from 60-92% prior to subsequent surgical reduction in the operating room. Given the wide range of success offered by existing maneuvers, we propose a novel method to safely reduce any type of posterior hip dislocation while mitigating excessive strain to the provider and patient.

Abstract: In 2010, the Ambulatory Care Drug Database System (ACDD) reported that acetaminophen with hydrocodone topped the list of the three most prescribed medications across 49% of orthopedic facilities. Despite regulatory efforts radiated from the federal level, opioid prescription and addiction continues to exist among orthopedic patients.
