  • Iatrogenic Lumbar Artery Injury in Spine Surgery: A Literature Review. [Review]
    World Neurosurg 2019; 122:266-271Liu L, Li N, … Wang Z
  • CONCLUSIONS: Attention should be given to the surgical procedures that are likely to cause ILAI, such as percutaneous vertebroplasty/percutaneous kyphoplasty, vertebral biopsy, pedicle screw implantation, discectomy, transforaminal endoscopic operation, and intervertebral foramen decompression. Once a diagnosis of ILAI has been confirmed, selective endovascular transarterial embolization is the preferred treatment.
  • Heterotrophic Ossification of the Flexor Retinaculum in a Patient with Ankylosing Spondylitis. [Case Reports]
    Asian J Neurosurg 2018 Jul-Sep; 13(3):921-922Ilik MK
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common peripheral neuropathy. This syndrome has various etiologies of which heterotopic ossification of the flexor retinaculum is a rare cause. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a systemic, progressive inflammatory disease of unknown etiology that mainly affects the axial skeleton and rarely causes peripheral neurological symptoms. A 48-year-old woman present…
  • The Effect of Radioscapholunate Fusion With and Without Distal Scaphoid and Triquetrum Excision on Capitolunate Contact Pressures. [Journal Article]
    J Hand Surg Am 2019; 44(5):420.e1-420.e7McNary SM, Heyrani N, … Bayne CO
  • CONCLUSIONS: A DSE performed at the time of RSL fusion results in increased midcarpal joint contact force and area, with resultant contact pressures unchanged. Triquetrectomy, which has been previously shown to improve range of motion, did not increase contact forces in the capitolunate joint.If a surgeon is contemplating performing an RSL arthrodesis with DSE, we recommend adding a triquetrectomy to improve motion because this does not add to the potentially deleterious effects of increased midcarpal contact force.
  • Origins of eponymous instruments in spine surgery. [Journal Article]
    J Neurosurg Spine 2018; 29(6):696-703Buraimoh M, Basheer A, … Koh E
  • Every day, spine surgeons call for instruments named after surgical pioneers. Few know the designers or the histories behind their instruments. In this paper the authors provide a historical perspective on the Penfield dissector, Leksell rongeur, Hibbs retractor, Woodson elevator, Kerrison rongeur, McCulloch retractor, Caspar pin retractor system, and Cloward handheld retractor, and a biographica…
  • Minimally Invasive Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Arthrodesis Using Headless Screw: Surgical Technique. [Journal Article]
    Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2018; 22(2):39-42Newman EA, Orbay MC, … Nunez F
  • Proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint arthritis causes debilitating hand pain and instability leading to significant functional impairment. Arthrodesis remains the gold standard for treatment of PIP arthritis. We present a minimally invasive PIP arthrodesis that provides rigid fixation with a headless compression screw. Seven patients who presented to the senior author with PIP joint arthritis und…
