- Preiser disease after repeated local glucocorticoid injections: A case report. [Journal Article]
- MMedicine (Baltimore) 2018; 97(38):e12413
- CONCLUSIONS: We have presented a case with AVN of the scaphoid, which was strongly suspected to be associated with the repeated local steroid injections. Further studies are required to more fully elucidate the association between AVN of the scaphoid and repeated local steroid injections.

Advanced ankle arthritis, avascular osteonecrosis, and osteomyelitis of the ankle remain a surgical challenge in the foot and ankle arena with limited treatment options. Multiple medical comorbidities contribute to total loss of the talus. Collapse of the talar body as a complication of total ankle arthroplasty, talectomy in infection, and septic talus necrosis or severe bone defects caused by tumor resection may result in need for total talar replacement. Ankle arthrodesis and tibiocalcaneal fusion after talectomy can produce severe disability of the ankle and foot. Total ankle replacement is a viable option for treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis in appropriate patient populations.

The purpose of this systematic review with meta-analysis was to assess the effectiveness of dental interventions in preventing or reducing the incidence of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) in cancer patients receiving antiresorptive therapy, compared to similar control groups receiving no intervention. Randomized controlled trials (RCT), case-controls and cohorts on cancer patients with primary outcome being the prevalence of MRONJ were included. Four electronic databases were searched (Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMBASE and Web of Science) up to February 12, 2018. A total of 409 abstracts were assessed and one case-control, one RCT and four cohort studies with 2332 cancer patients met our inclusion criteria. Risk of bias analysis followed Cochrane's handbook. Risk of bias was unclear for the case-control study and high risk for the RCT and all cohort studies. Five studies utilized preventive measures consisting of an initial examination and performing all necessary dental treatment before patients initiated antiresorptive therapy; one study used specialized post-extraction protocols utilizing plasma-rich in growth factors (PRGF) on cancer patients receiving antiresorptive therapy. Though dental preventive measures decreased MRONJ incidence by 77.3% in six studies with 2332 cancer patients (95% CI = 47.4-90.2%; p = .001) compared to control groups, quality of the evidence was low due to high or unclear risk of bias and the observational nature of five of the included studies. In conclusion, high-quality long-term prospective large sample size studies are needed to confirm these results due to high risk of bias and heterogeneous interventions. No funding.
- Development of Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw After Extraction of Teeth With Experimental Periapical Disease. [Journal Article]
- JOJ Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Aug 22
- CONCLUSIONS: These data support a synergistic contribution of severe dental disease and tooth extraction to MRONJ pathogenesis. Importantly, this model is amenable to manipulation of methodologic conditions for the dissection of parameters involved in MRONJ pathogenesis.

- Oblique Inguinal Incision in Bernese Periacetabular Osteotomy: Surgical Technique. [Journal Article]
- JAJ Am Acad Orthop Surg Glob Res Rev 2017; 1(9):e061
- CONCLUSIONS: Oblique inguinal incision for the anterior approach in Bernese periacetabular osteotomy is a technique that allows healing of surgical wounds without dehiscence or hypertrophic changes by respecting tension lines. It has a high rate of patient satisfaction, with no complications.
