  • Intercalary reconstructions after bone tumor resections: a review of treatments. [Review]
    Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2017; 27(6):737-746Panagopoulos GN, Mavrogenis AF, … Papagelopoulos PJ
  • An intercalary reconstruction is defined as replacement of the diaphyseal portion of a long bone after segmental skeletal resection (diaphysectomy). Intercalary reconstructions typically result in superior function compared to other limb-sparing procedures as the patient's native joints above and below the reconstruction are left undisturbed. The most popular reconstructive options after segmenta…
  • Aneurysmal bone cyst involving the metacarpal bone in a child. [Case Reports]
    Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2015; 44(3):E68-70Song KS, Lee SW, … Sohn ES
  • Aneurysmal bone cysts associated with tubular bones of the hand occur rarely and require particular diagnostic and therapeutic management techniques. While optimal treatment has not been established, accepted treatments range from aggressive radical treatment, including en bloc resection and excision diaphysectomy with strut bone grafting, to relatively simple techniques, such as thorough curetta…
  • [Diaphysectomy of the proximal phalanx in quintus varus supraductus and hammer toe in children]. [Clinical Trial]
    Acta Ortop Mex 2013 Mar-Apr; 27(2):103-8González-Rincón JA, Valle-de Lascurain G, Oribio-Gallegos JA
  • The most frequent foot and ankle anatomical alterations in the pediatric population are found in the little toes. Several treatments are proposed for these conditions, ranging from total phalangeal resections, phalangeal osteotomies, osteosynthesis, and soft tissue management. We propose a surgical technique based on the diaphysectomy of the proximal phalanx and the release of soft tissues that a…
  • [Surgical treatment of hand deformities in multiple enchondromatosis: a case report]. [Case Reports]
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2006; 40(1):89-93Erol B, Tetik C, … Bezer M
  • Multiple enchondromatosis (Ollier's disease) is a rare disease characterized by widespread enchondromas. In general, the short tubular bones of the hand are involved, with progressive lesions resulting in cosmetic problems and functional deformities. Diaphysectomy and reconstruction with structural autografts or allografts are usually recommended in the treatment of extensive enchondromas involvi…
  • Muscle flaps in the treatment of osteomyelitis of the lower extremity. [Journal Article]
    J Trauma 2005; 58(5):1019-23Gonzalez MH, Weinzweig N
  • Thirty three consecutive patients with chronic osteomyelitis and deficient soft tissue coverage treated with a muscle flap from 1991-1998 were reviewed retrospectively. Osteomyelitis was diagnosed by positive bone cultures and radiographic changes consistent with osteomyelitis. Osteomyelitis was divided into localized <50% diameter: 24 patients and diffuse >50% diameter or infected nonunion: 9 pa…
  • Proximal femoral diaphysectomy in cerebral palsy. [Journal Article]
    Contemp Orthop 1994; 29(1):52-8McCartney DK, Frankovitch KF
  • A study was conducted to evaluate the outcome of massive proximal femoral shortening in the cerebral palsy patient with severe spastic quadriplegia and hip instability. A retrospective review of 13 children (age range: three to 19 years of age) representing 18 hips treated with massive shortening of the proximal femur was conducted. Bilateral procedures were performed in five patients. All proced…
