Shibaev E.Y., Vlasov A.P., Kisel D.A., Lazarev M.P., Nevedrov A.V., Tsoglin L.L., Ivanov P.A.


In the article the results of 67 procedures of soft tissue reconstructions for the patients with open tibia fractures were analyzed. In the group, where the authors used skin rotational flaps, afterwards there were 3 (37.5%) patients with deep infection. The skin flap necrosis was diagnosed in 5 (62.5%) cases. In the group, where the authors used the reverse sural flap the deep infection occurred in 2 (28.6%) cases, but the flap necrosis developed in 3 (42.9%) cases. In the group where the authors used local muscular flaps, the deep infection occurred in 5 cases (13.2%) and the flap necrosis developed in 5 cases. In the group where we used the free muscular flap there was only 1 patient who got the deep wound infection and there were 2 patients who got necrosis. The clinical results that demonstrated the best healing and minimal complication rate of muscular flaps were confirmed high blood flow data in those flaps, measured by laser Doppler flowmetry. It means that using muscular flaps technique is most suitable for the soft tissue reconstructions in open tibia fractures. The type of the flap’s utilization is not important. Skin flap is a second line method of choice if it’s not possible to use muscular flap technique.

Affect of surgical approaches on functional results of total hip arthroplasty in early postoperative period

Andreyev D.V., Naumenko I.V., Goncharov M.Y., Drozdova P.V., Preobrazhenskiy P.M.


Minimally invasive approaches implies a less soft tissue damage and, therefore, more rapid recovery of the patient in the early postoperative period. The present study is a comparison of minimally invasive and standard approaches using biomechanical analysis of standing and walking patients before and after total hip arthroplasty, as well as an analysis of clinical outcomes in the early postoperative period. Fifty patients undergoing primary total hip arthroplasty using a minimally invasive and conventional techniques were divided into three groups. The first group consisted of patients operated on using the MIS AL (modified minimally invasive approach Watson-Jones) (n = 17), the second - MDM (minimally invasive approach to the modified Mueller) (n = 16) and in the third - with the use of transgluteal conventional approach by Harding (n = 17). The estimation of biomechanical parameters in static and dynamic patients before surgery and at 8-10 days after surgery. Also assessed clinical outcome postoperative visual analogue scale (VAS) and Harris scale on day 10, 6 and 12 weeks and 1 year. When comparing the three groups of patients stabilometry best results were observed in groups of minimally invasive approaches MIS AL and MDM. When comparing the three groups significantly better (a moderate increase in the duration of the step, rolling the contralateral limb and a slight increase in the duration of the step the operated limb by increasing the duration of the roll-over) were identified in the minimally invasive group MIS AL and MDM. In assessing the scale of Harris in the early postoperative period, higher rates were observed in groups of minimally invasive approaches. A year after the operation functional results become similar in all groups.

Pisarev V.V., Aleinikov A.V., Vasin I.V., Oshurkov Y.A.


Aim of this study - comparative assesment of treatment outcomes of different types of diaphyseal shin fractures in patients with bone and intraosteal lackable osteosynthesis. Material and methods. We examined 222 patients with fused diaphyseal shin fractures. In 122 patients close reduction and intraosteal lackable osteosynthesis of shin bones was performed, in 100 - open reduction and osteosynthesis of shin bones with plates LCDCP All patients were divided into subgroups according to АО/ASIF classification (fractures type А, В, С). The evaluation of the results was done in two years period after surgery with questionnaire SF36, outpatients clinic cards analysis, CITO cards study outcomes of fractures, rheovasography and X-ray examination. Results. We found that in patients with fractures types A and В these two types of osteosynthesis lead to similar results according to questionnaire SF36, comparable with control group. Bone osteosynthesis in treatment of fractures type С results in higher quality of life, comparable with control group, than intraosteal. Indicators of treatment outcomes in accordance with CITO card in bone osteosynthesis were higher than in intraosteal. In bone osteosynthesis of fractures type A the terms of temporary disability and fusion significantly lower than in intraosteal osteosynthesis of the similar fractures. Reduce of the tolerance to heavy physical stress in patients with fractures type С in intraosteal osteosynthesis determined by low blood flow in shin. Treatment of shin fractures with bone and intraosteal osteosynthesis follows by equal risks of complications.

Berezhnoy S.Y.


The purpose of the study was to expand the possibilities of metatarsus primus varus percutaneous correction through the development of surgical technique, taking into account the advantages and disadvantages of known techniques. Materials and method: by the example of 67 surgeries the results of the first metatarsal displaced distal percutaneous osteotomy fixed by the screw were reviewed. Surgical technique was described. Proposed intervention was applicable over a wide range of the first intermetatarsal angle (from 12 to 29° in this series). Immediate fool weight-bearing was authorized. An average hospital stay was 1.02 due to the painless early postoperative period. Results: desired correction of the first metatarsal has been achieved in the course of all surgical interventions. Partial or complete loss of correction in the postoperative period, that did not affect final results, was registered in three patients after interventions on four feet. The average first intermetatarsal angle after surgery was 10.6 ° (4-16). No transfer metatarsalgia, infectious or other complications were noted, as well as unsatisfactory results. Conclusions: first metatarsal fixed displaced distal percutaneous osteotomy together with previously proposed percutaneous first metatarsocuneiform joint arthrodesis technique allows percutaneous correction of any degrees of metatarsus primus varus.

Vlasov A.P., Trofimov V.A., Mitroshin A.N., Shevalayev G.A.


The purpose of work was studying of a role of systemic lipid metabolism disturbances in a pathogenesis of homeostasis disorders in the early posttraumatic period at fractures of pelvic bones in experiment and clinic. Pilot and clinical studies are put in a basis of work with application of the techniques estimating structure phospholipid membranes of erythrocytes, cells of a liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, and also intensity of the processes participating in a regulation of a lipid metabolism. Results. It is established that at a pelvic trauma change of lipids structure arise not only in a blood, but also other tissues structures (a liver, kidneys, lungs, heart) that is caused by activization of phosfolipaze systems, an intensification of lipids peroxidation process. There is a systemic lipid distress syndrome. The arisen changes - one of significant in a pathogenesis of traumatic illness. At modification of lipid structure of a biomembrane the morphological and functional condition of a cell starts suffering. It is substrate of emergence of disregulation pathologies. The received scientific facts can be the base for intelligent medical actions for the purpose of the prevention of emergence of a "favorable" background of disregulation conditions by vectorial impact on one of its main pathogenetic links - a systemic lipide distress syndrome.

Characteristics of proximal tibial epiphysis structure and effectiveness of impression fragments fixation in tibial 57 condylar fractures (in vitro study)

Voronkevich I.A.


The structure of cancellous bone of the proximal tibial epiphysis using CT and measurement of Leeb hardness was investigated. The author found that subchondral layer as thick as 10 - 15 mm which corresponds with the thickness of impressed fragments of tibial condylar fracture has the density and elasticity modulus up to 84,4% of lowest threshold value of the compact bone. In more deep layers from cartilage the cancellous bone progressively loose it’s density and hardness and deeper than 40 mm they reach their lowest threshold value. Higher level of plating with screwing through impression fragment can persist significantly more (p<0,05) cyclic loading (24066±2015) even without bone grafting, than the same fixators inserted lower with deeper than 20 mm screwing through the bone graft (2133±446 cyclic loading). Such application of the plate with passing screws through subchondral layer of impression fragments at the level of 5-7 mm from joint cartilage can be achieved by anatomic preoperational pre-bending of any fixator.

Biomechanical consequences of anatomical reconstruction of the lateral ligaments to the ankle joint complex: an in vitro investigation

Shmidt R., Benesh S.


The three-dimensional kinematics of both the ankle and the subtalar joints was examined after cutting and subsequent repairing the lateral ligaments using three anatomical procedures: direct repair, tendon graft and carbon-fibre implant. All procedures restored the original kinematics of the subtalar joint, except the plantar/dorsiflexion. For the talocrural joint, the tendon graft and the carbon fibre implant left a minimal laxity for the inversion/eversion and internal/external rotation movements. The direct repair procedure restored the physiologic kinematics almost completely and gave the best results, allowing to restore almost completely the physiologic kinematics. Each procedure respected the insertion points and the directions of the original ligaments. However, the different results for the direct repair and the other two anatomical procedures show that this condition alone is not sufficient to restore the kinematics of the talocrural and subtalar joints perfectly. None of the procedures caused a movement restriction. Thus, we recommend the direct repair of the ligaments as the method of choice. If the quality or the conditions of the ligaments do not allow a direct repair, we recommend to use another anatomical reconstruction.

Vitovskaya M.L., Zabolotnykh N.V., Vinogradova T.I., Vasilyeva S.N., Kaftyrev A.S., Ariel B.M., Kirillova E.S., Novitskaya T.A., Iskrovskiy S.V., Serdobintsev M.S.


The effect of Roncoleukin on the recovery of the bone tissue in plastic operational defects (autobone+OsteoSet-T) on the model of experimental tuberculous osteites in 36 rabbits caused by drug resistant clinical strains of M. tuberculosis was studied. It was conducted a comparative analysis of the results of applying of Roncoleukin (12,5 mg/kg, 5 injections, one every 3 days) with anti-tuberculosis treatment in pre-and post-operative period. Efficacy was assessed in 1 and 6 months of surgical intervention on the phagocytic activity of peritoneal macrophages, X-ray study of plastics area, histological study of bone tissue sections. It was found that the most effective use of Roncoleukin appeared in the postoperative period. The analysis showed that Roncoleukin helped to accelerate the restructuring of plastic material - OsteoSet-T, reducing the prevalence of specific foci of inflammation in the bone tissue and the disappearance of alternative necrotic component; the increase of osteogenesis intensity with the new bone beams formation., as well as the activation of hematopoesis in bone marrow. The intensification of reparative processes in the bone combined with a distinct activation of phagocytosis.

Assessment of bone quality by the technique of multispiral computer tomography in patients with chronic osteomyelitis

Dyachkova G.V., Dyachkov K.A., Aleksandrov S.M., Larionova T.A., Klyushin N.M.


Purpose - to study the roentgenomorphological features of the lower limb long bones in patients with chronic osteomyelitis using the technique of multi-spiral computer tomography (MSCT), and to propose the complex of parameters to assess bone quality. Material and methods. Roentgenography and computer tomography of the hips were performed in 49 patients with chronic osteomyelitis of long bones of lower extremities. The studies made using computer tomographs GE Light Speed VCT, Toshiba Aquilion-64, Somatom Smile. Results. The changes in bone structure of proximal femur were characterized by extremely marked polymorphism, and they almost didn’t repeat in the anatomical component. The cortical plate had heterogenous structure with resorption zones in the area of its transfer to the shaft. The character of roentgenomorphological changes in the shaft was individual in all the patients, but there were common manifestations as well which consisted in thickening of the cortical plate, different intensity of periosteal and endosteal layers. The cortical plate was significantly different in density, which exceeded 1700 HU in some places. When osteomyelitic process localized in the knee marked changes affected its all components, they manifested themselves in extended osteoporosis and local osteosclerosis. When osteomyelitic process localized in proximal tibia extensive resorption zones observed, the cortical plate thinned in proximal parts, its density was not more than 350 HU. Conclusion. The data demonstrated that bone quality in patients with chronic osteomyelitis had significant deviations from normal values in terms of changing both its density and architectonics. The deviations consisted in bone density decrease in the meta-epiphyseal part regardless of the process localization, in highly variable density values of the cortical plate as a result of its thickening or thinning, presence of resorption or sclerosis areas.

The main approaches to the knee joint stabilization in patients with cerebral palsy

Umnov V.V.


Objective: to improve the results of surgical correction of flexion contracture of knee joint in patients with cerebral palsy. Material and methods. 196 patients with cerebral palsy aged from 2.5 to 18 years old were examined. In 131 patients aged from 8 to 18 years old we performed lengthening of tibia flexors with posterior capsulotomy and without it, in 4 patients aged from 11 to 16 years old the contracture was corrected after preliminary reduction of muscle tone using lumbar dorsal selective rhizotomy (LDSR). Among 246 operated segments a slight contracture in 23 cases was eliminated only with lengthening of tibia flexors, in the remaining 223 cases in addition after lengthening of tibia flexors the residual contracture was corrected by the method of pre-dosed correction in plaster cast. In 16 segments if there was a severe contracture we performed a posterior capsulotomy of knee joint. Besides, we investigated the dependence of contraction degree from phase-tonic activity of tibia flexors, as well as the influence of LDSR on the possibility to correct flexion contracture in 65 knee joints of patients aged from 2.5 to 16 years old. Results. The high degree of dependence of knee flexion contracture (KFC) from tone increase of tibia muscle flexors (correlation coefficient r p<=0,01 in patients aged from 2.5 to 7 years old is 0,942, 8-16 years old - 0,712). Probably that is why in 65 investigated joints using LDSR the contracture was corrected in the younger age group in 50 %, in elder age group - in 46 % cases after reduction of muscle tone - tibia flexors by 59% and 37%. Taking into consideration the data we worked out the indications for different variants of surgical correction of KFC depending on the degree of its intensity and with account of muscle hypertonia. As a result of the appliance of differentiated approach the contracture was corrected in 91,6 cases. Conclusion. The main causes of knee flexion contracture in patients with cerebral palsy are contractures and muscle imbalance in contiguous segments, predominance of tibia flexor tone and weakness of soleus muscle. Differentiated approach allows correcting contracture in most cases.

Clinical variants of upper limbs deformities in children with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita

Agranovich O.E., Lakhina O.L.


From 2004 to 2012 the authors examined and treated 207 patients with upper limb deformities due to AMC. The age of children with AMC was from 5 months till 18 years. All upper limbs deformities due to AMC were deviated into 2 groups: isolated and complex forms. The isolated forms differ from each other by the level of damage of the spinal cord. There are 4 variants of isolated form with different clinical presentations (C6-7, C5-7, C5-T1, С6). The complex form presents AMC in combination with other pathology: Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy and congenital upper limbs anomalies. The identification variants of upper limbs deformities in patients with AMC help to choose the optimal variant of treatment and predict the results of treatment.

Khodjanov I.Y., Khakimov S.K., Kasimov K.A.


This report presents the results of the operative correction of the pectus excavatum in 45 children aged from 5 to 15 years. In relation to the elasticity degree and age of the patients there was performed correction of the pectus excavatum by method of D. Nuss and in modification with application of a metal plate of the own construction. At normal elasticity (degree I) of the anterior sternocostal complex in 22 (48,9%) patients was executed operative intervention by method of D. Nuss, with good result in 21 (95,4%) and satisfactory in 1 (4,5%) patient. At moderate degree of elasticity (II-degree) in 13 (28,9 %) patients procedure of D. Nuss in modification of our clinic was performed. The correction of the pectus excavatum was carried out by chondrotomy of the deformed ribs and placement of the metal plate under the sternocostal complex. The good results were noted in 11 (84,6 %) patients, satisfactory - in 2 (15,4%). At the hypopastic sternocostal complex (degree III) the deformation was removed by Т-shaped or cross sternotomy with chondroresection of some ribs and then placement of the metal plate of D. Nuss under sternocostal complex. The good results were found in 7 (70 %), satisfactory - in 1 (10 %) and unsatisfactory - in 2 (20 %) patients. Thus, the long-term results of treatment depend on the elasticity of sterno-costal complex and the child’s age.

Dynamic control of knee axial deformities

Malyshev E.E., Pavlov D.V., Blinov S.V.


The authors have evaluated the clinical examination of the patients with axial malalignments in the knee by the original method and device which was named varovalgometer. The measurements were conducted by tension of the cord through the spina iliaca anterior superior and the middle of the lower pole of patella. The deviation of the center of the ankle estimated by metal ruler which was positioned perpendicular to the lower leg axis on the level of the ankle joint line. The results of comparison of our method and computer navigation in 53 patients during the TKA show no statistically significant varieties but they differ by average 5° of valgus in clinical examination in comparison with mechanical axis which was identified by computer navigation. The dynamic control of axial malalignment can be used in clinical practice for estimation of the results of treatment of pathology with axial deformities in the knee; for the control of reduction and secondary displacement of the fractures around the knee; for assessment of instability; in planning of correctional osteotomies and intraoperative control of deformity correction; for estimation of Q angle in subluxation and recurrent dislocation of patella; in planning of TKA; during the growth of child it allows to assess the progression of deformity.
