Article: indications of revision TKA in Sudan[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Abstract Total knee arthroplasty is a highly successful procedure, with the Percentage of patients requiring revision relatively small. However, when considering the large number of these procedures performed annually, this small percentage of failures constitutes a significant number of patients. This is a retrospective hospital based study, defined causes and consequently the indications for revision TKA, that done in Saheron, Sherg Elniel and Soba hospitals in Khartoum State, Sudan from Jan 2007 to Jan 2012. Total number of patients of this study was 29 patients (31 knees). 16 of them were females. The main causes of failure among the study group were septic loosening 41.9%, aseptic loosening 35.5%, instability 12.9%. Seventeen patients (54.8%) of the study group was defined as early failure and the main cause of this early failure was infection 53%(9 patients). Thirteen patients (42%) of the studied group underwent their primary procedure inside Sudan and the main cause of revision of was septic loosening 61% (8 of 13 patients), while the cause for revision in operation that done outside Sudan was aseptic loosening 55.5% (10 of 18 pts).Infection, aseptic Loosening, and instability were the preeminent factors necessitating revision of primary total knee arthroplasty in Sudan in this study. This study recommended, establishment of a national data registry of joint replacement in Sudan. Establishment of a national surgical protocol of arthroplasty in Sudan. Resources should be devoted to increased researches focused on prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of prosthetic joint infection. Surgeons should continue to be vigilant in preventing infection preoperatively and aggressive in treating postoperative wound complications.Sudan medical journal 05/2012;

ABSTRACT: Abstract Background Clubfoot or Congenital Talipes Equinovarus (CTEV) is one of the most common congenital limb deformity in paediatric orthopaedic clinics. Treatment is generally non-operative except for resistant, relapsed or late presented cases. We evaluated the short and mid-term results of posteromedial release (PMR) using Turco incision for correction of resistant and neglected clubfeet at the paediatric orthopaedic unit in Soba University Hospital. Methods This is a retrospective study where twelve years patients’ records and follow-up data at the Paediatric Orthopaedic unit - Soba University Hospital (SUH) were reviewed. Patients of club feet managed by Turco procedure at Soba hospital done between 1989 and 2001 and came for follow-up in the period from August 2001 to June 2002 were evaluated clinically and functionally according to the criteria stated by Turco and included in the study. Results CTEV patients constituted about 15 % (115 of 730) of all patients seen in Paediatric Orthopaedic unit at (SUH) during the period between 1989 and 2002. These 115 patients had 189 clubfeet, 84 patients underwent different surgical procedures for clubfoot treatment. We were able to evaluate 21 patients with 29 feet underwent one stage Turco posteromedial release in the study period. Their ages ranged between 27 months - 8.5 years. The mean age at surgery was 23.1 months, 21 feet (75.8%) operated at age of 1 to 2 years. Eight operations (27.5%) had wound breakdown and wound infection in two feet (7 %). Twenty-three feet (79.3%) showed excellent and good outcome and failure in 5 feet (17.2%). 91% of the excellent and good results were operated at an age between 1 to 2 years. Conclusion Turco’s procedure gives good results for resistant and late presenting clubfeet if done early at the age of 1-2 years.
