    We report on a series of 108 elective orthopaedic surgical procedures. It includes 88 radiosynoviortheses and 20 major orthopaedic procedures, performed on 51 patients at nine centres worldwide. The average age of patients was 28.5 years (range 5-40 years), and the average follow-up time was 2 years (range 1-5 years). There were 82 good results, 15 fair and 11 poor. In the synoviorthesis group (41 patients, 88 synoviortheses) the average age was 14.3 years (range 5-40 years) and the ...

    PurposeOur aim was to clarify the effective decrease in blood transfusion after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) from a multimodal blood-loss prevention approach (MBLPA) and the related risk factors of blood transfusion.MethodsWe retrospectively compared the rate of postoperative blood transfusion in 418 cases of primary TKA during 2010 from a single institution with two different groups of patients, allocating cases to the group with MBLPA (group 1, study group, N = 71) and ...

    We report a series of 108 elective orthopedic surgical procedures in hemophilia patients with inhibitors, comprising 88 cases in which radiosynoviorthesis was performed and 20 cases in which major orthopedic procedures were carried out. Hemostatic cover was provided by recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa, NovoSeven(R), Novo Nordisk, Bagsvaerd, Denmark) in 17 cases, and by FVIII anti-inhibitor product (FEIBA, Baxter Corp, Toronto, Canada) in the remaining three procedures. A total of 51 ...

    BACKGROUND: Radiosynovectomy (RS) can reduce the number of hemarthroses in chronic hemophilic synovitis. The purpose of this study was to quantitatively assess the effectiveness of RS in terms of the objective improvement of ten articular parameters.

    METHODS: One-hundred and fifty-six radiosynovectomies were performed in 104 joints of 78 hemophiliacs diagnosed with chronic synovitis. The mean patient age was 18 years. The RS was carried out with either yttrium-90 or rhenium-186 (1-3 ...

    A prospective study from 1974 to 1996 was done to determine optimal treatment for chronic hemophilic synovitis of the knee and synovitis of the elbow. Sixty-five patients with synovitis affecting 65 knee joints and 40 patients who had synovitis of the elbow (44 elbows), despite a 3-month trial of prophylactic substitution therapy, were treated by synovectomy. Radiation synovectomies (Au-198 synoviorthesis) were done on 38 knees, open surgical synovectomy on 18, and nine had an ...

    We report on a series of 92 surgical procedures (90 patients). It includes 35 orthopaedic procedures (33 patients) and 57 non-orthopaedic procedures (57 patients). The orthopaedic procedures include 27 radiosynovectomies (minor surgery) and eight major orthopaedic procedures. The non-orthopaedic procedures include 52 minor interventions and five major procedures. The average age of patients was 34 years (range: 8-56), and the average follow-up time was 3 years (range: 1-6). Of the 92 ...

    The literature describes radiosynovectomy (RS) as a good non-surgical option for reducing synovial membrane size and thus the number of haemarthrosis episodes. However, there are still many aspects concerning the beneficial effects of RS that have not been quantified. A total of 156 radiosynovectomies (RS) were performed in 104 joints corresponding to 78 haemophiliacs (yttrium-90, rhenium-186). The mean patient age was 18 years. In another study involving the same group of patients, the ...

    The role of total hip arthroplasty for the treatment of displaced intracapsular fractures of the proximal femur in active patients is controversial. Some authors have shown that such patients, when treated with a bipolar or unipolar hemiarthroplasty, are at increased risk of having acetabular erosion develop that might require later revision to a total hip replacement. In fact, the results of some authors were not substantially different from those reported for elective total hip ...

    Cartilage therapy for focal articular lesions of the knee has been implemented for more than a decade, and it is becoming increasingly available. What do we know on the healing response of cartilage lesions? What do we know on the treatment of focal cartilage lesions of the knee and the prognostic factors involved? PubMed articles related to articular cartilage regeneration of the knee in clinical studies were searched from January 2006 to November 2012, using the following key words: ...

    Our experience and a review of the literature on inhibitors have shown that, with the availability of recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa), haemophilic patients with high inhibitor titres requiring elective orthopaedic surgery can undergo such surgery with a high expectation of success. The advent of rFVIIa has made major elective orthopaedic surgery possible in haemophilic patients with high-titre inhibitors, resulting in an improved quality of life. Recombinant FVIIa appears to be an ...

    Forearm fractures are common injuries in childhood. There are a number of important principles that should be followed to achieve the ideal goal of fracture healing without deformity or dysfunction. I will review the general principles, classifications, diagnosis, treatment, and complications of pediatric forearm fractures, including some specific injuries such as Monteggia fractures, Galeazzi injuries, and open fractures. The basic principle is to accurately align the fracture fragments ...

    The efficacy of intra-articular tranexamic acid (TXA) to decrease blood loss after total knee replacement (TKR) has been confirmed in randomised clinical trials (RCTs) and meta-analysis. However, insufficient data are still available about the efficacy in clinical practice of intra-articular TXA administration in reducing the rate of postoperative blood transfusion. To prove the efficacy of a low-volume formulation of intra-articular TXA in current clinical practice, and the role of ...

    Background: The role of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) for painful degenerative meniscal tears (PDMT) is currently controversial.To define the rate of early (1 to 5 years) conversion to total knee replacement (TKR) and their predictors after APM for PDMT in patients with knee osteoarthritis and more than 50 years of age.

    Methods: Retrospective cohort study of patients more than 50 years of age with the diagnosis of PDMT, treated by means of APM. Patients were classified in two ...

    BACKGROUND: The treatment of choice for patients with severe haemophilia is prophylaxis with clotting factor. Effective prophylaxis requires optimal adherence. Most published studies are based on surveys and interviews with patients or their parents. However, studies based on objective measurements of adherence are few and inconclusive.

    OBJECTIVE: The main purpose of this study was to assess adherence to prophylaxis using an objective method in patients with haemophilia aged 12 to ...
