Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion with Local Bone Graft Alone for Single-Level Isthmic Spondylolisthesis
A retrospective study of patients treated by transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) with local bone graft alone for single-level isthmic spondylolisthesis (IS) between April 2009 and July 2014 in a single facility. Methods: Demographic and operative data, complications, preoperative and postoperative clinical records, and radiographs were revised. The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Denis Work Scale were used for clinical ... Read more

Cementless total hip arthroplasty in the treatment after acetabular fractures
Introduction The outcomes of total hip arthroplasty (THA) for the treatment of posttraumatic arthritis after acetabular fractures were inferior to those after primary non-traumatic THA. Methods This study was performed in academic level I trauma center. From January 2011 to December 2014, a consecutive series of 21 patients (9 females), with average age of 56.7 years (range 29–75 years) who ... Read more

Tibial hemimelia; Do we need a modification of the currently used classification system?
Background: Tibial hemimelia is a rare congenital anomaly, it may occur in isolated form or combined with other congenital anomalies. Different classification systems had been used for classification. While inferior tibiofibular joint diastasis is a well-known accompanying deformity in subtypes of different classification systems; complete diastasis of tibia and fibula is not included in either of classification systems. Methods: Case ... Read more

Traumatic Atlantoaxial Rotatory Fixation (AARF) with Odontoid Fracture, Case report.
Introduction: Atlantoaxial rotatory fixation (AARF) is also known as rotatory subluxation, rotatory displacement, rotary deformity, rotational subluxation, and is characterized by incomplete dislocation of the inferior atlantal and superior axial articular facets 1. AARF in combination with odontoid fracture is an extremely rare injury 2-6. Atlantoaxial injuries can be classified according to Fielding 1 or White and Panjabi 7 classification ... Read more

Simultaneous open reduction and internal fixation and total hip arthroplasty for the treatment of osteoporotic acetabular fractures.
Introduction Surgical treatment of acetabular fractures in elderly people is challenging. The main aim of this study is to evaluate retrospectively the indications, results and the complications of simultaneous open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and acute total hip replacement (THR) in the management of displaced acetabular fractures. Methods This study was performed in an academic level I trauma centre. ... Read more

Modified Pedicle Subtraction Osteotomy for Posttraumatic kyphosis, Long term follow-up.
_Background Data:_ Post traumatic kyphosis (PTK) of the thoracolumbar is a sever complication of spine fractures, and the management can be quite challenging. Pedicle subtraction osteotomy which includes posteriorly based wedge resection of the posterior column and both pedicles, with the hinge located at the anterior cortex of the vertebral body was developed to achieve significant deformity correction. However, it ... Read more

Recapping Laminoplasty for adult low-grade isthmic spondylolisthesis.
Study design: Prospective study. Objectives of the study: To assess the results of recapping laminoplasty with posterior instrumentation and fusion in the management of adult low grade isthemic spondylolithesis. Background: Isthmic spondylolisthesis is a condition where there is a translational displacement of the upper vertebral body compared to the lower one secondary to a defect in the pars interarticularis.
