Percutaneous osteoplasty for the management of a pubic bone metastasis

Percutaneous osteoplasty (POP) has been proven to relieve pain due to osteolytic metastases by injecting bone cement to stabilize the pathological fracture. Nevertheless, there have been few reports about POP of metastases in the pubis. This article presents a case involving the use of POP to manage a metastasis in the pubis. After POP the patient experienced significant pain...

Repair of osteonecrosis of the femoral head

BackgroundOsteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a common joint disease and a major cause of morbidity.ObjectiveIn this study Cervi cornus Colla (CCC) deproteinized bone scaffolds were designed and three dimensional (3D)-printed for the repair of ONFH in rats.Material and methodsThe CCC-deproteinized bone scaffolds were 3D-printed using polycaprolactone mixed with the CCC...

Cervical posterior longitudinal ligament ossification

ObjectiveTo explore the clinical efficacy and safety of microscopy-assisted anterior corpectomy and fusion for cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL).MethodsA retrospective review of 32 cervical OPLL patients who underwent microscopy-assisted anterior corpectomy and fusion from June 2012 to March 2017 was carried out. Patients were evaluated with...

Individualized alignment in total knee arthroplasty using image-based robotic assistance

IntroductionOver the past decades many innovations were introduced in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) focusing on implant longevity and higher procedural precision; however, there are still a high number of dissatisfied patients. It was reported that better anatomical alignment may result in improved patient outcome; however, current technologies have limitations to achieve this...

Operative Therapie von Knorpelschäden

Cartilage damage is often associated with pain, reduced quality of life and decreased physical performance. In addition, even small cartilage lesions can lead to osteoarthritis. Since young active people are particularly affected, the correct treatment of cartilage damage plays an important role. Operative treatment includes bone marrow-stimulating procedures with or without a...

Knochenersatzwerkstoffe als lokale Wirkstoffträger

BackgroundAutologous bone grafts (autografts) are used in surgery for defect filling and impaction grafting during hip socket and femur reconstruction. Because of their superior osteoinductive capacity, autografts are considered the “gold standard” for these treatments. However, because of a better cost-benefit ratio, allografts are also often used. In the case of limited donor...

Allogene spongiöse Knochenpräparate als Antibiotikaträger

Hintergrund Die weltweit steigende Anzahl an primären Gelenkendoprothesenoperationen führt zu einem Anstieg der Revisionen, unter anderem aufgrund von bakteriellen prothesenassoziierten Infekten. Die Verwendung von antibiotikaimprägnierten Knochenchips anstatt von Knochenzement als Auffüllmaterial fördert den Knochenaufbau einerseits und ermöglicht eine effektive Bekämpfung der...
