Two-stage revision using aminoglycoside-cement spacers (A-CSs) is widely used to manage chronic periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). However, aminoglycoside-resistance in gram-positive cocci (GPC) seems to be increasing. Moreover, the contribution of these A-CSs to select resistant mutants is a matter of concern. We study the antibiotic susceptibility(More)
Arthroscopic revision of rotator cuff lesions is an increasingly popular procedure with a relatively safe profile. However, associated deep articular infection has been described, with potentially destructive joint sequelae. When occurring, it poses the double challenge of eradicating the infectious agent while preserving the articulation and its function.(More)
Facklamia spp. are gram-positive cocci first described in 1997. They are α-hemolytic, facultative anaerobes, catalase-negative cocci, resembling viridians streptococci on 5% sheep blood agar. Facklamia hominis is, by far, the most common species of the 6 so far described, and it is thought that its natural habitat is the female genital tract. Four previous(More)
Literature on the reconstruction of the proximal femur in skeletally immature patients with the use of an epiphyseal transplant is scarce and with variable results depending on the indication. We report successful outcomes using a modified vascularized fibular epiphyseal transplant in a 4-year-old boy with an oncologic lesion. We discuss the advantages of(More)
Preoperative identification of the infecting micro-organism is of paramount importance in the treatment protocol for chronic periprosthetic joint infections, as it enables selection of the most appropriate antibiotic treatment. Preoperative joint aspiration, the most commonly used sampling technique, has proven to have a broad range of sensitivity values(More)
We aim to evaluate the epidemiology and outcome of gram-negative prosthetic joint infection (GN-PJI) treated with debridement, antibiotics and implant retention (DAIR), identify factors predictive of failure, and determine the impact of ciprofloxacin use on prognosis. We performed a retrospective, multicentre, observational study of GN-PJI diagnosed from(More)
The vascularized fibular periosteal flap has been recently described and showed solid angio and osteogenic features. We report the use of a free vascularized fibular periosteal transplant in the treatment of a El-Rosasy-Paley Type III congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia in a 7-year-old boy, with a prior unsuccessful surgery at the age of three. The(More)
Bone nonunion in the pediatric population usually occurs in the context of highly unfavorable biological conditions. Recently, the vascularized fibular periosteal flap has been reported as a very effective procedure for treating this condition. Even though a vascularized tibial periosteal graft (VTPG) was described long ago and has been successfully(More)
We revised the first 100 revision total hip arthroplasties using a cementless distal locking revision stem conducted in our referral centre. Average follow-up was 9.2 years (range: 5.5-12 years). Harris Hip Score improved from 42.5 to 81.6, and none had thigh pain at last follow-up. No significant stress shielding, osteolysis, or radiologic loosening was(More)
