Introduction
I am always interested in finding new solutions to solve emerging orthopaedic problems. Apart from using arthroscopy for ACL reconstruction, meniscal and cartilage lesions treatment and exceeding synovium removal, I like to use it as adjuvant technique and as a diagnostic tool.

became aware of these drawbacks, observing that “…rupture of an endomedullary rod is explainable as a fatigue crack in the place of less resis-tance [in Latin aka ‘locus minoris resistentiae’] located about at the fracture site, where the nail is not supported by the bone cylinder…. A nail can rupture not only due to a fatigue rupture but also through a chemical process, namely corrosion crack os -cillation…. Rupture or bending of a nail are rare events.”

Arthroscopy has surpassed traditional types of open surgery in the treatment of shoulder instability because of its mini-invasiveness and shorter rehabilitation time. Despite this, in some cases, such as those involving significant glenoid erosions and extensive capsular lesions, arthroscopic methods fail the objectives, and methods that were believed to have been surpassed are again used, such as the Bristow-Laterjet procedure. It is the purpose of this article to describe use of the method in light of the possibilities offered by arthroscopy.

Gleich-Koutsogiannis is a widely known extra-articular closing calcaneal osteotomic technique for correction of the adult flatfoot. Absolute care must be observed during each procedural step to avoid undesirable drawbacks, such as nerves and tendons lesions, incorrect fixation, and hardware painful prominence. It is the purpose of this report to in...

Distal tibia fractures are one of the most demanding injuries in orthopaedic traumatology, due mainly to frequent coexistence of covering tissue problems and poor blood supply. Smoking exerts a detrimental effect on fracture healing, increasing the time to union. We report the case of a 60-yearold heavy-smoker (about 20 cigarettes a day) with a dis...

Multifragmentary fractures of the radial head (Mason type 3) are challenging for the surgeon. They are usually treated by means of complete removal of the injured head and sometimes by implantation of a metal prosthesis. Indeed, the bone fragments are often too small to allow stabilization through screws or even wires. The Author proposes an altern...

A 37-year-old outpatient woman has recently come to our attention for left shoulder pain, which was successfully treated for bursitis through needle aspiration of 70 mL of blood and intra-articular administration of 4 mg of anti-inflammatory gluco-corticoid with complete pain recovery. She was generally well developed , in good health, and married...

Traumatic inferior dislocation of the shoulder (also termed “luxatio erecta”) is a very rare injury. The correct diagnosis may be overlooked and results after reduction can often result in signifi cant morbidity of the affected joint. It is described in a clinical case in which a male adult reported a luxatio erecta that was correctly diagnosed and...

Plantar fasciitis is often a difficult condition to treat. It is related to repetitive strain of the fascia at its attachment to the heel bone. This condition quite often appears with the concomitant presence of a plantar calcaneal heel spur. Corticosteroid injection is a popular treatment choice for plantar fasciitis, and accurate localization of...

A case of bilateral rupture of the Achilles tendon in a patient treated with levofloxacin for cystitis is reported. A 76-year-old woman suddenly developed painful ankles one day after levofloxacin treatment. Drug therapy was switched to amoxicillin/clavulanate on the fourth day. Sonography revealed a serious condition of tendinosis with complete bi...

L’artroscopia ha superato i tradizionali interventi a cielo aperto nel trattamento delle instabilità di spalla, in virtù della sua mininvasività e dei ridotti tempi riabilitativi. Tuttavia, in alcuni casi, come le importanti erosioni glenoidee e le estese lesioni capsulari, le tecniche artroscopiche falliscono gli obiettivi e fanno tornare in auge...

Distal locking is considered a difficult stage of the en-domedullary tibial nailing procedure. A new rapid, simple, and inexpensive freehand aiming technique is presented that uses a galvanized metal grid. The grid is positioned to overlay the skin of the medial cutaneous face of the tibia, giving to the underlying bone under fluoroscopy a pattern...

La mosaicoplastica è una tecnica molto utile nella ricostruzione di aree cartilaginee danneggiate, ottenendo ottimi risultati nel prevenirne l’evoluzione artrosica post-traumatica. A tale fine la tecnica deve essere ineccepibile, comprendendo un’accurata valutazione del danno (localizzazione, estensione, profondità) ed un’attenta procedura chirurgi...

Non sempre l’osteosintesi rappresenta l’opzione terapeutica ottimale per le fratture pertrocanteriche: nelle lesioni instabili è preferibile ricorrere alla protesizzazione, che è in grado di assicurare migliori risultati anatomo-funzionali e una mobilizzazione precoce.

L’evoluzione dei biomateriali e del design ha permesso di rispondere in maniera sempre più esaustiva alle esigenze richieste in tema di protesizzazione di anca: stabilità, osteointegrazione, durata nel tempo. Nonostante gli affinamenti, la protesizzazione dell’acetabolo, rispetto a quella del femore, rimane sempre l’“anello debole della catena”.
