    Title Arthroscopically-assisted Removal of Retrograde Intramedullary Femoral Nails.
    Date May 2006
    Journal Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma
    Excerpt

    Retrograde nailing of femoral shaft fractures has become more prevalent as a result of its growing acceptance and familiarity to orthopaedic surgeons. Nail removal is occasionally indicated, which may require a formal arthrotomy. We describe an arthroscopic removal technique that has several advantages. The percutaneous technique imparts less morbidity than a more extensive arthrotomy. More importantly, additional intra-articular pathology can be thoroughly assessed and treated, such as meniscal tears and chondral injury, which may have occurred at the time of injury. These are potential causes of knee pain, which usually cannot be properly diagnosed without arthroscopy. Our findings also support the existence of a stable fibrous cap, which forms over the entry portal of a well-seated retrograde femoral nail as well as no evidence of intra-articular metallosis.

    Title Open Fractures of the Patella: Long-term Functional Outcome.
    Date November 1995
    Journal The Journal of Trauma
    Excerpt

    Seventy-nine open patella fractures in 76 patients were treated between 1986 through 1994, with an 80% incidence of multiple injuries. All were treated with irrigation and debridement, open reduction, internal fixation, and reconstruction of the extensor mechanism. In no case was a primary patellectomy performed, even with severe comminution. There were three failures of initial fixation and one asymptomatic nonunion. Average range of motion for all groups was 112 degrees, at an average follow-up of 21 months. Secondary surgical procedures were performed in 65% of knees, the majority for symptomatic hardware. To determine long-term functional outcome, a modified Hospital for Special Surgery knee score was used. At an average of 36 months, good to excellent knee scores were observed in 17 of 22 patients. We conclude that all attempts for preservation of bone substance and precise reconstruction of the extensor should be attempted, reserving total patellectomy as a salvage procedure.

    Title Clearing the Cervical Spine: Initial Radiologic Evaluation.
    Date October 1987
    Journal The Journal of Trauma
    Excerpt

    The identification of unstable cervical spine injury (UCSI) in blunt high-energy transfer injury (BHETI) patients is critical to management. In a prospective study of BHETI patients identified to be at high risk for UCSI, the use of lateral cervical spine view (LCV), three-view cervical spine series (FCS), and limited computerized tomography (CT) in the initial evaluation of these patients was analyzed. Thirteen of 204 patients sustained UCSI. Sensitivity of the LCV alone was 0.85 and the predictive value of the negative test was 0.97. Sensitivity and predictive value of a negative study were maximized by the use of FCS combined with CT when plain X-rays were inadequate. We conclude that technically adequate, normal FCS can be safely used to eliminate the presence of UCSI. If these studies are technically inadequate, the addition of a limited CT can be used to "clear" the spine.
