Kuleshov A.A., Vetrile S.T., Zhestkov K.G., Guseinov V.G., Vetrile M.S.


Outcomes of surgical treatment of 34 patients aged from 9 to 15 years (mean age 11.7 years) with basic curvature arch from 43 to 148° (99° average). In 9 patients dorsal correction and spine fixation by CD system without intervention on the vertebral bodies was performed (1st group). In 25 patients diskepiphysectomy (including thoracoscopic one in 7 patients) and interbody spondylodesis on the apex of the convex basic arch were performed prior to dorsal correction. Then halo-pelvic traction was performed for 7-10 days followed by dorsal fixation of the spine by CDI without posterior spondylodesis (2nd group). Subsequently depending on the degree of correction loss due to spine growth step-by-step corrections of the deformity were performed. After spine growth completion final instrumental correction and fixation of the spine with posterior spondylodesis were performed. In the 1st group step-by-step corrections were to be performed in 77% of cases, in 2nd group - in 28% only. It was shown that performance of diskepiphysectomy on the apex of the deformity with following correction and CD system fixation of the spine decreased the rate of postoperative spine deformity progression, eliminated asymmetric growth of vertebrae on the deformity and increased the achieved correction. In the process of patients' growth wedge shape of the vertebral bodies decreased in frontal and sagittal planes and no increase of their torsion-rotation changes occurred.

Prospective study of tranexamic acid use results (native preparation Tranexam) in primary total hip arthroplasty was performed during the period from March to October 2009. The study involved 159 patients (55 men, 104 women) with various hip joint pathology (79 patients - main group, 80 patients - control group). Mean age of patients made up 55.7 years (17 - 80 years). In patients from the main group 15 mg/kg Tranexam was injected just prior to operation with reinjection of the same dose in 6 hours. In control group etamsylate (750 mg 30 minutes prior to incision with reintroduction in 4 - 6 hours, daily dose up to 1500 mg) was applied. The results of the analysis showed reliable (p<0.001) decrease of total blood loss in the main group (409±228 ml) as compared to the control group (638±437 ml). The reasonability of the use of tranexamic acid for reduction of blood loss in total hip arthroplasty was shown.

Tribochemical Component of Oxidizing Stress Development at Joint Replacement. Part I. Determination of Radical-Forming Ability of Wear Particles from Various Orthopaedic Materials

Bulgakov V.G., Gavryushenko N.S., Shal'nev A.N., Tsepalov V.F.


Using the model reaction of cumene oxidation the radical-forming ability of wear particles of some orthopaedic alloys and corundum ceramics were studied. It was revealed that wear particles from different alloys catalyzed cumene oxidation whereas particles of corundum ceramics were inert. Cobalt alloy wear particles were much more active as compared with the titanium alloy and stainless steel particles. Production of cobalt alloy by laser sintering reduced the radical-forming ability of its wear particles. Activity of cobalt wear particles was preserved for a long time after their formation and could considerably strengthen the development of oxidizing stress at joint arthroplasty. Detection of catalytic activity of orthopaedic alloys' wear particles requires studying of the influence of free radicals generated by tribochemical reaction upon implant components and biological tissues.

Rozinov V.M., Yandiev S.I., Burkin I.A.


Outcomes of surgical treatment for diaphyseal fractures of the femur were analyzed in 270 (278 interventions) out of 509 patients being admitted to the clinic since 1999. In overwhelming majority of patients (226 children) closed intramedullar fixation of bone fragments (231 operations) was performed. Closed intramedullar osteosynthesis was performed using flexible and rigid rods including the locking ones. Elastic-stable osteosynthesis is indicated for the treatment of under school age children with type A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3, C2 fractures as well as junior school age children with type A1, A2, B1, B3, C2 fractures. Presented technique can be considered as a gold standard in this group of patients. Closed intramedullary osteosynthesis by rigid rod without locking is the optimum technique for the treatment of junior and senior school age children in bearing injuries of types A3 and B2. Method of choice in senior school age children with A1, A2, B1, B3, C1, C2 and C3 fractures is closed intramedullar osteosynthesis with locking rod. Preliminary extrafocal fixation in multiple and open injuries creates optimum conditions for delayed intramedullar osteosynthesis.
