We sought to evaluate the long-term quality of life and functional outcome of patients who underwent digital replantation after amputation. A retrospective single-center study was conducted of patients treated between January 2010 to May 2016. Twenty-eight patients who underwent successful replantation after single or multiple digital amputation were reviewed in person after at least 2 years' follow-up (mean 4.6 years). Total active range of motion, grip and pinch strength were assessed. Functional outcomes...
Optimal treatment for traumatic digit amputation is unknown.
To examine physician and hospital reimbursement for digit and thumb replantation compared with revision amputation.
Successful limb replantation must be based not only on the viability of the amputated part but also on satisfactory long-term functional recovery. Once the vascular, skeletal, and soft-tissue problems have been taken care of, nerve recovery becomes the ultimate limiting factor. Unfortunately, nerve regeneration after limb replantation is impaired by several consequences. The authors tested the hypothesis that bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells could improve nerve regeneration outcomes in an experimental mod...
Despite the common use of intraoperative vasopressors in hand microsurgery, the association between intraoperative vasopressor use and digital replant failure has not yet been examined. Our study aims to examine the association between intraoperative vasopressor use (phenylephrine and/or ephedrine) and postoperative digital failure of replanted or revascularized digits.
Through-knee amputation is a common amputation level after battlefield injuries during the medical evacuation process. However, there are limited data comparing through-knee amputation with transfemoral amputation as a definitive amputation level in terms of gait parameters.
This study evaluated the success and failure rates as well as the final results following 2-stage revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). Particular emphasis was placed on comparing patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and non-RA patients. A total of 140 knees that required 2-stage revision for PJI after TKA were analyzed. Mean patient age at first revision TKA was 67.9 years (range, 43 to 89 years), and mean time from second-stage revision to final follow-up was ...
To reevaluate the benefits of a Gritti-Stokes amputation (GSA), as an alternative to the traditional above knee amputation (AKA), in patients who are non-ambulatory or not a candidate for a below-knee amputation (BKA).
Closure or amputation of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is a common therapy for atrial fibrillation (AF). As the LAA is a hormone-producing organ, however, amputation is still somewhat controversial. We examined patients after surgical AF therapy with or without LAA amputation to determine the influence of LAA amputation on pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (proANP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) plasma levels and on clinical severity of heart failure.
The aim of this study was to assess the safety of one-per-mil tumescent injections into viable skin flaps that had survived an ischemic insult, in order to assess the potential suitability of one-per-mil tumescent injections in future secondary reconstructive procedures such as flap revision and refinements after replantation.
The geriatric population represents a rapidly growing segment of society with prolonged life expectancies and more active lifestyles. Many of these patients have already undergone primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) and are presenting with aseptic loosening, polyethylene wear, osteolysis, or periprosthetic fractures. Therefore, the demand for hip revision procedures is expected to grow. Currently, there are many modular implant options available for use in complicated revision THA. Early results of modular...
The aim of this study was to investigate the differences in 30-day outcomes between patients undergoing revision for an infected total hip arthroplasty (THA) compared with an aseptic revision THA.
Previous studies have demonstrated that age, smoking, Tamai's level of amputation, causes of injury and ischemia time were associated with the success rate of digit replantation. The primary objective of this study is to investigate whether mental status including anxiety and depression is associated with the rate of digit replant failure.
There is considerable literature about revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in athletes vut there is little published evidence about the same in the nonathletes. The injury itself may remain underdiagnosed and untreated in nonsports persons. This study highlights the high incidence of ACL injury in the nonathletic patient cohort, revision rates, and the outcomes of revision ACL reconstruction.
Amputation following burn injury is rare. Previous studies describe the risk of amputation after electrical burn injuries. Therefore, we describe the distribution of amputations and evaluate risk factors for amputation following burn injury at a large regional burn center. We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients ≥17 years admitted from January 2002 to December 2015. Patients who did and did not undergo an amputation procedure were compared. A multivariate logistic regression model was used to de...
Instability remains one of the most common indications for revision THA. However, little is known about the efficacy of surgery for and the complications associated with revision THA for patients with a chronically dislocated THA, which we define as a dislocation of more than 4 weeks.
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is known as the greatest risk factor affecting the amputation of diabetic foot. Thus, it is crucial to understand the epidemiology of PAD associated with diabetic foot and the relationship between PTA and amputation in predicting prognosis. However, no such multi-year data are available in Korea. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate trends of amputation involving diabetic foot based on vascular interventions for PAD in Korea.
Digital breast tomosynthesis is an advancement of mammography, and has the potential to overcome limitations of standard digital mammography. This study aimed to compare first-generation digital breast tomo-synthesis including two-dimensional (2D) synthetic mammograms versus digital mammography in a population-based screening programme.
The natural history of intermittent claudication (IC) is that only 25% of patients will experience worsening of their claudication symptoms and only ∼1-3% will progress to major amputation. The impact of increasing use of endovascular therapies on the natural history of IC has not been well established. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the incidence and identify predictors of major and minor amputation following peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) for IC.
The mobilization of patients with diabetic foot syndrome after surgical treatment by debridement or partial amputation is usually difficult in daily practice and in inpatient care.
The incidence of revision THA continues to increase and there is a need to identify risk factors contributing to postoperative complications. Anesthesia type has been shown to be associated with complication rates in patients who undergo primary THA, but it is not clear whether the same is true among patients undergoing revision THA.
A comprehensive study to assess quality and outcomes of care for Veterans with upper limb amputation is needed. This paper presents methods and summary findings from a national survey of Veterans with upper limb amputation.
This study was undertaken to compare the two image-quality phantoms commonly used in full-field digital mammography (FFDM) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) imaging.
Appendicular osteosarcoma (OSA) remains a prevalent musculoskeletal cancer in dogs and definitive local control followed by adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy is considered the gold standard approach. Several studies support surgical limb salvage as a means of local control with similar outcomes compared to limb amputation. Complications are well described for limb salvage but little is known of dogs that undergo secondary amputation as a result of complications and outcomes specific to this group. A retrospec...
Periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) are one of the most dangerous complications in hip surgery. "Two-stage" revision surgery is the treatment of choice. Nevertheless, 5-10% of failures are reported. The aim of this study is to evaluate which factors determine the failure of the two-stage revision in patients affected by hip PJI.
