Summary of "Repair of chronic ruptures of the gluteus medius muscle using a nonresorbable patch."


OBJECTIVE:
Repair of a chronic rupture with a defect of the gluteus medius muscle with or without a total hip replacement. Improvement of gait and limping by functional stabilization of the pelvis. Reduction of pain in the region of the greater trochanter.
INDICATIONS:
Chronic rupture with a defect of the gluteus medius.
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Complete bony defect and absence of the greater trochanter and hip infection. OPERATIVE
TECHNIQUE:
Lateral positioning of the patient. Longitudinal incision of 12-15 cm over the greater trochanter. Preparation to the fascia and longitudinal incision slightly dorsal to the greater trochanter. Preparation and mobilization of the ruptured parts of the gluteal muscles. Smoothening of the insertion of the gluteal muscle. Transosseus fixation of the ventral part of the ruptured gluteal muscles using fiber wires (Arthrex, Munich, Germany) with a Mason-Allen technique. Suturing of the mobilized posterior part of the ruptured gluteal muscle on the resutured ventral gluteal part. Securing of the readaptation by suturing a nonresorbable collagen patch (Zimmer, Winterthur, Switzerland) in a rhomboid direction with nonresorbable sutures (Ethibond, Ethicon, Norderstedt, Germany). Wound closure. POSTOPERATIVE
TREATMENT:
Prophylaxis of deep venous thrombosis. Early functional mobilization. Continuous increase of weight bearing over a period of 6 weeks and 6 weeks no adduction or active abduction.
RESULTS:
Ten patients (9 women, 1 man; age 73.4 ± 12.3 years) showed significant improvement of their symptoms after 1 year. All were pain free and did not need crutches anymore. Four could walk without any limping and in 6 slight limping was observed. The Harris Hip Score increased from 47.5 ± 9.5 points preoperative to 85.2 ± 7.6 points 1 year postoperative. Complications were not observed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Elongated, spindle-shaped, quiescent myoblasts lying in close contact with adult skeletal muscle. They are thought to play a role in muscle repair and regeneration.

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

The degeneration and resorption of an OVARIAN FOLLICLE before it reaches maturity and ruptures.

A common nonarticular rheumatic syndrome characterized by myalgia and multiple points of focal muscle tenderness to palpation (trigger points). Muscle pain is typically aggravated by inactivity or exposure to cold. This condition is often associated with general symptoms, such as sleep disturbances, fatigue, stiffness, HEADACHES, and occasionally DEPRESSION. There is significant overlap between fibromyalgia and the chronic fatigue syndrome (FATIGUE SYNDROME, CHRONIC). Fibromyalgia may arise as a primary or secondary disease process. It is most frequent in females aged 20 to 50 years. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1494-95)

A DNA repair enzyme that catalyzes DNA synthesis during base excision DNA repair. EC 2.7.7.7.
