Version correction via eccentric reaming reduces clinically important retroversion in Walch type B2 glenoids (those with substantial glenoid retroversion and a second, sclerotic neoglenoid cavity) before total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). Clinically, an increased risk of glenoid component loosening in B2 glenoids was hypothesized to be the result of compromised glenoid bone quality attributable to eccentric reaming. However, no established guidelines exist regarding how much version correction can be applied without compromising the quality of glenoid bone.

Acetabular Reconstruction With Femoral Head Autograft After Intraarticular Resection of Periacetabular Tumors is Durable at Short-term Followup

Pelvic reconstruction after periacetabular tumor resection is technically difficult and characterized by a high complication rate. Although endoprosthetic replacement can result in immediate postoperative functional recovery, biologic reconstructions with autograft may provide an enhanced prognosis in patients with long-term survival; however, little has been published regarding this approach. We therefore wished to evaluate whether whole-bulk femoral head autograft that is not contaminated by tumor can be used to reconstruct segmental bone defects after intraarticular resection of periacetabular tumors.

Osteomyelitis Risk in Patients With Transfemoral Amputations Treated With Osseointegration Prostheses

Percutaneous anchoring of femoral amputation prostheses using osseointegrating titanium implants has been in use for more than 25 years. The method offers considerable advantages in daily life compared with conventional socket prostheses, however long-term success might be jeopardized by implant-associated infection, especially osteomyelitis, but the long-term risk of this complication is unknown.
