Orthopedics and Physical Rehabilitation Publications and Presentations

Background: Cancer rehabilitation is a rapidly growing diverse field in physiatry. This case provides an example where rehabilitation physiatrists played a crucial role in the pain management, education, and rehabilitation before and after a palliative amputation. Due to her limited resources, both in her home country and in her local community, she could not access appropriate care that may have prevented the need for amputation. Though amputation is not generally accepted as the first line of treatment for pain, there have been several reports of palliative amputation in metastatic cancer patients. In particular, fore quarter amputations have been reported in ...

The surgical technique is presented herein. In addition, initial results are presented for 128 patients (mean age 64.7 years; 57.8% male) undergoing UKA with NAVIO. After a mean of follow-up period ...


Opioid Consumption After Orthopedic Surgery: Prospective Randomized Trial On The Effects Of Preoperative Counseling, Sage Vincent, Taylor Paskey, Elizabeth Critchlow, Erica Mann, Talia Chapman, MD, Kristin Sandrowski, MD, Asif Ilyas, MD 2019 Thomas Jefferson University

Opioid Consumption After Orthopedic Surgery: Prospective Randomized Trial On The Effects Of Preoperative Counseling, Sage Vincent, Taylor Paskey, Elizabeth Critchlow, Erica Mann, Talia Chapman, Md, Kristin Sandrowski, Md, Asif Ilyas, Md

Phase 1

Introduction: Recently, there have been increases in morbidity and mortality associated with opioid medications. Physician overprescribing, particularly within orthopedics, contributes to large quantities of leftover opioids, leading to an increased risk of non-medical opioid use and abuse.

Objective: To understand the role of preoperative patient counseling on postoperative opioid consumption, a prospective randomized study was done, with the idea that patients receiving counseling would take fewer opioids than their control counterparts.

Methods: Patients undergoing elective outpatient orthopedic surgery at Jefferson affiliate hospitals were enrolled over a 3-month period. Patients were randomized to a control group or to receive preoperative counseling ...


An Evaluation Of Ultrasound-Guided Regional Block Anesthesia In Outpatient Hand Surgery, Daniel Calem, Armen C. Voskeridjian, MD, Michael Rivlin, MD, Pedro Beredjiklian, MD, Mark L. Wang, MD, PhD 2019 Thomas Jefferson University

An Evaluation Of Ultrasound-Guided Regional Block Anesthesia In Outpatient Hand Surgery, Daniel Calem, Armen C. Voskeridjian, Md, Michael Rivlin, Md, Pedro Beredjiklian, Md, Mark L. Wang, Md, Phd

Phase 1

Introduction: The utilization of ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks in orthopedic surgery has increased in popularity as the anesthesia of choice for the management of perioperative pain. Peripheral nerve blockade has been shown to increase overall surgical efficiency, improve patient satisfaction, reduce postoperative narcotic use, and decrease the duration of facility admissions, while increasing overall cost-effectiveness. To date, scant literature exists regarding the safety and efficacy of ultrasound-guided supraclavicular blocks used in common hand surgery procedures, and the rate of neurologic and vascular complications remains unknown.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness and complication rate of ...


Comparison Of Visual Analog Pain Score Reported To Physician Vs Nurse In Nonoperatively Treated Foot And Ankle Patients, Trevor McBride, BS, MAJ Kevin D. Martin, DO, CPT Jeffrey Wake, DO, ATC, LT J. Preston Van Buren, DO, Cuyler Dewar, BS 2019 Thomas Jefferson University

Comparison Of Visual Analog Pain Score Reported To Physician Vs Nurse In Nonoperatively Treated Foot And Ankle Patients, Trevor Mcbride, Bs, Maj Kevin D. Martin, Do, Cpt Jeffrey Wake, Do, Atc, Lt J. Preston Van Buren, Do, Cuyler Dewar, Bs

Phase 1

Background: Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) are taking a more prominent role in Orthopedics as health care seeks to define treatment outcomes. The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) is considered a reliable measure of acute pain. A previous study found that operative candidates’ VAS pain score was significantly higher when reported to the surgeon compared to the nurse. This study’s aim is to examine whether this phenomenon occurs in nonoperative patients. We hypothesize that patients’ VAS scores reported to the surgeon and a nurse will be the same

Methods: This study is a retrospective cohort of 201 consecutive nonoperative patients ...

Treatment Outcomes In Gram Negative Periprosthetic Joint Infection, Irene Kalbian, Ba, Karan Goswami, Md, Carol Foltz, Phd, Nathan John, Bs, William Arnold, Md, Javad Parvizi, Md, Fcrs

Phase 1

Introduction: Outcomes associated with periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) involving Gram negative (GN) organisms are poorly understood. While prevailing beliefs indicate that GN PJI cases have poorer prognoses than Gram positive (GP) cases, the current literature is sparse and inconsistent.

Objective: The purpose of this study is to systematically compare the treatment outcomes for GN PJI versus GP PJI.

Methods: A retrospective review of 1189 PJI cases between 2007 and 2017 was performed using an institutional PJI database. Treatment failure defined by the Delphi criteria was compared between cases with only GN organisms (n=45) and only GP organisms (n=663 ...

Functional And Structural Studies Of Tolloid-Like 1 Mutants Associated With Atrial-Septal Defect 6., Lukasz Sieron, Marta Lesiak, Izabela Schisler, Zofia Drzazga, Andrzej Fertala, Aleksander L. Sieron

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Faculty Papers

Inactive mammalian tolloid-like 1 (tll1) and mutations detected in tolloid-like 1 (TLL1) have been linked to the lack of the heart septa formation in mice and to a similar human inborn condition called atrial-septal defect 6 (ASD6; OMIM 613087, formerly ASD II). Previously, we reported four point mutations in TLL1 found in approximately 20% of ASD6 patients. Three mutations in the coding sequence were M182L, V238A, and I629V. In this work, we present the effects of these mutations on TLL1 function. Three recombinant cDNA constructs carrying the mutations and one wild-type construct were prepared and then expressed in HT-1080 cells ...

Articles, Abstracts, and Reports

Background: Orthopaedic surgeons are confronted with a difficult dilemma: managing acute pain postoperatively and balancing the risk of prescription opioid use. To our knowledge, a prospective performance-improvement project providing opioid-prescription recommendations based on the actual amounts of usual and customary medication consumed following simple knee meniscectomy has not been described.

Methods: One hundred and two patients undergoing arthroscopic knee meniscectomy prospectively recorded postoperative pain medications in a pain journal. Arthroscopic procedures were performed at 2 centers by 9 fellowship-trained senior surgeons. Various usual and customary prescribing protocols were observed, and the amount of medication consumed was recorded. Prescription and over-the-counter ...

Transgenic Mice Overexpressing Human Tnf-Α Experience Early Onset Spontaneous Intervertebral Disc Herniation In The Absence Of Overt Degeneration., Deborah J. Gorth, Irving M. Shapiro, Makarand V. Risbud

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Faculty Papers

There is a well-established link between cytokine expression and the progression of intervertebral disc degeneration. Among these cytokines, interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) are the most commonly studied. To investigate whether systemic hTNF-α overexpression affects intervertebral disc health, we studied the spine phenotype of Tg197 mice, a widely used hTNF-α transgenic line. These mice were studied at 12-16 weeks of age using comprehensive histochemical and immunohistological analysis of the spinal motion segment. Micro-CT analysis was performed to quantify vertebral trabecular bone architecture. The Tg197 mice evidenced spontaneous annular tears and herniation with increased vascularity in subchondral bone and ...
