Event Description
This report is being filed after the review of the following journal article: stiehl b. , saluja r. , diener t. , (2000), reconstruction of major column defects and pelvic discontinuity in revision total hip arthroplasty , the journal of arthroplasty vol. 15 no. 7, pages 849-857 (usa). This study aims to review a long-term experience using a combination of pelvic reconstruction plates and bulk allografts to deal with unusually severe problems, such as pelvic discontinuity and major column loss in which the entire acetabular wall became nonsupportive after failed arthroplasty and reconstruction problems. From january 1988 until july 1996, a total of 17 patients (3 male and 17 female) treated for entire loss of a pelvic column, pelvic discontinuity, or both were included in the study. Fixation used a posteriorly placed ao 4. 5-mm pelvic reconstruction plate of 10 to 12 holes in 9 cases of pelvic discontinuity and 5 cases of posterior column bone loss while anterior column fixation used an 8- to 12-hole 3. 5-mm ao pelvic reconstruction plate. Average follow-up was 83 months. The following complications were reported as follows: a case of a female patient number 6, age at time of follow up was (b)(6) year old , treated with anterior plating had dislocation. A case of a female patient number 14, age at time of follow-up was (b)(6) year old, treated with posterior plating ,underwent revision and had late infection and underwent additional exploration of the sciatic nerve for late entrapment at 46 months and 24 months caused by migration of screws from the posterior column plate. A case of a female patient number 16, age at time of follow-up was (b)(6) year old, treated with posterior plating ,underwent revision and had late sciatic nerve palsy, implant loosening and additional exploration of the sciatic nerve for late entrapment at 46 months and 24 months caused by migration of screws from the posterior column plate. A case of a male patient number 17, age at time of follow-up was (b)(6) year old, treated with posterior plating ,had dislocation. Two patients suffered from bladder infections postoperatively, 1 developing late infection of the prosthesis with the same organism isolated from infected urine. Another patient developed superficial phlebitis of the lower leg that resolved with rest and anticoagulant therapy. A case of a female patient number 5, age at follow up was (b)(6) year old, treated with anterior and posterior plating underwent revision and had acute infection and dislocation. A case of a female patient number 9, age at time of follow up was (b)(6) year old, treated with anterior and posterior plating underwent revision and had a dislocation. A case of a female patient number 12, age at time follow-up (b)(6) year old,treated with anterior and posterior plating underwent revision and had dislocation. Death: a case of a male patient number 3 who underwent anterior column fixation had dislocation and late sciatic nerve palsy and later on died. A case of a female patient number 4 who underwent anterior and posterior fixation with plates had a revision and acute infection, later on died. A case of a female patient number 10, age at time of follow up was (b)(6), treated with anterior and posterior plating had dislocation. A case of a female patient number 13, age at time of follow up was (b)(6), treated with posterior plating had dislocation. A case of a female patient number 7, who underwent anterior and posterior fixation with plates died. A case of a female patient number 11, who underwent anterior and posterior fixation with plates died. A case of a female patient number 15 , who underwent posterior fixation with plates died. The complaint involves 44 devices. Due to a limit of impacted products per complaint, this complaint will be captured under 5 separate complaints as listed below: (b)(4). This report is for an unknown synthes 4. 5-mm pelvic reconstruction plate. This is report 5 of 10 for complaint (b)(4).
