Abstract: Dislocations of the carpometacarpal joint of the fingers are infrequent, accounting for less than 1% of all injuries of the hand. We reported the functional results of 11 cases of CMC dislocations, presented the epidemiological, clinical and management characteristics of these lesions.

Abstract: During walking optimal stimulation of the nervous system depends on how upright we walk. When we use heeled footwear it makes us lean somewhat more forward and then we lose an amount of stimulation. If we could use foot wear that don’t lift the heel of the foot, important improvements in our defense against various diseases would occur and the treatments of Hippocrates could be used once more. Several million years ago parts of our skeleton were rebuild to make us walk upright

Abstract: Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) is known to cause Excessive Proximal Femoral Torsion (EPFT). EPFT can be treated with a Proximal Femoral Derotation Osteotomy (PFDRO) with good success, which is usually performed via closed versus open osteotomy and intramedullary nailing. The technique to measure the degree of correction involves referencing wires or pins placed in the proximal and distal segments prior to the osteotomy, respectively. A goniometer

Abstract: Distal locking screws placement in Intramedullary nail fixation for treatment of long bone fracture is important step and sometimes lead to increase operative time and radiologic exposure. We propose a simple, efficient, and low-cost technique for the distal locking screws placement using the first screw placement as a guide for the second screw.

Abstract: Understanding of the meniscal root importance to normal meniscus function has evolved in the last decade, resulting in a better ability to identify and manage this unique type of meniscal injury. Currently there are some limitations that prevent better understanding of meniscal root tears including lack of surgeon awareness, diagnostic difficulty, still debatable indications for and contraindications to surgical repair, technical difficulty, and short term clinical follow-up data

Abstract: Knee pain is one of the most common complaints in pediatric clinics, accounting for nearly one third of visits. Plica syndrome is one cause of pediatric knee pain that typically results from a traumatic event or due to overuse. Synovial plicae are normal anatomic findings thought to be embryologic remnants from the three compartments that develop into the knee. Plicae are associated with knee pain caused by trauma or repetitive movements that lead

Abstract: Ossification of ligamentum flavum (OLF) is a rare condition. A 62-year-old gentleman, with cord compression by thoracic OLF, was treated with laminectomy. In this paper, an unusual case of thoracic OLF treated by laminectomy with floating ossification, with the incorporation of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) and 3D fluoroscopic navigation, is presented and a review of the literature is described.

Abstract: The transfibular approach is commonly used for hindfoot arthrodesis. Fibula osteotomy with a saw blade and subsequent bone graft preparation can be time-consuming and prolong tourniquet time as well as prevent training opportunities. We describe a simple and reproducible technique to perform fibula osteotomy using an acetabular reamer. Advantages of this technique include reduction in operative time and use of the reamed bone as an autograft in the tibiotalar and talocalcaneal joints to bridge any voids and increase healing capacity.
