PURPOSE:The open "Broström-Gould" procedure has become the gold standard technique for the treatment of chronic ankle instability. Although arthroscopic techniques treating ankle instability have significantly evolved in the last years, no all arthroscopic Broström-Gould has been described. The aim of the study was to describe the all-arthroscopic Broström-Gould technique [anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) repair with biological augmentation using the inferior extensor retinaculum (IER)], and to evaluate the clinical results in a group of patients. METHODS:Fifty-five patients with isolated lateral ankle instability were arthroscopically treated. Arthroscopic ATFL repair with biological augmentation was performed through a two-step procedure. First, the ligament is reattached through an arthroscopic procedure. Next, the ligament is augmented with the IER that is endoscopically grasped. Both the ligament repair and its augmentation with IER were performed with the help of an automatic suture passer and two soft anchors. Characteristics of the patients, and pre- and postoperatively AOFAS and Karlsson scores were recorded. RESULTS:The median preoperative AOFAS score increased from 74 (range 48-84) to 90 (range 63-100). According to the Karlsson score, the median preoperative average increased from 65 (range 42-82) to 95 (range 65-100). No major complications were reported. Only one case (1.8%) required a revision surgery at 23 months of follow-up. CONCLUSION:The arthroscopic all-inside ATFL repair with biological augmentation using the IER is a reproducible technique. Excellent clinical results were obtained. The technique has the advantage of its minimally invasive approach and the potential to treat concomitant ankle intra-articular pathology. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:Retrospective case series, Level IV.


目的: 开放式 “brostr ö m-Gould” 手术已成为治疗慢性踝关节不稳的金标准技术。尽管治疗踝关节不稳的关节镜技术在过去几年有了显著的发展,但没有描述所有的关节镜brostr ö m-Gould。本研究的目的是描述全关节镜下brostr ö m-Gould技术 [使用下伸肌支持带 (IER) 生物扩增的距腓前韧带 (ATFL) 修复],并对一组患者的临床结果进行评价。 方法: 对 5 5 例单纯踝关节外侧不稳患者行关节镜下治疗。通过两步手术进行关节镜下ATFL修复和生物增强。首先,通过关节镜手术重新连接韧带。接下来,韧带用内窥镜抓握的IER增强。韧带修复和IER隆突均在自动缝合器和两个软锚钉的帮助下进行。记录患者的特征,以及术前和术后AOFAS和Karlsson评分。 结果: 中位术前AOFAS评分从 74 (范围 48-84) 增加到 90 (范围 63-100)。根据Karlsson评分,术前平均中位数从 65 (范围 42-82) 增加到 95 (范围 65-100)。无重大并发症报告。在 23 个月的随访中,只有 1 例 (1.8%) 需要翻修手术。 结论: 关节镜下全内修复ATFL并使用IER进行生物强化是一种可重复的技术。获得了极好的临床结果。该技术具有微创性和治疗伴随踝关节内病变的潜力。 证据级别: 回顾性病例系列,IV级。

METHODS:OBJECTIVE:Patients with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, the cardiovascular risk of patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS) remains poorly studied. We aimed to investigate the association between primary SS and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. METHODS:We performed a systematic review of articles in Medline and the Cochrane Library and recent abstracts from US and European meetings, searching for reports of randomized controlled studies of cardiovascular morbidity and cardiovascular mortality in primary SS. The relative risk (RR) values for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality associated with primary SS were collected and pooled in a meta-analysis with a random-effects model by using Review Manager (Cochrane collaboration). RESULTS:The literature search revealed 484 articles and abstracts of interest; 14 studies (67,124 patients with primary SS) were included in the meta-analysis. With primary SS versus control populations, the risk was significantly increased for coronary morbidity (RR 1.34 [95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.06-1.38]; P = 0.01), cerebrovascular morbidity (RR 1.46 [95% CI 1.43-1.49]; P < 0.00001), heart failure rate (odds ratio 2.54 [95% CI 1.30-4.97]; P < 0.007), and thromboembolic morbidity (RR 1.78 [95% CI 1.41-2.25]; P < 0.00001), with no statistically significant increased risk of cardiovascular mortality (RR 1.48 [95% CI 0.77-2.85]; P = 0.24). CONCLUSION:This meta-analysis demonstrates that primary SS is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity, which suggests that these patients should be screened for cardiovascular comorbidities and considered for preventive interventions, in a multidisciplinary approach with cardiologists.

METHODS:OBJECTIVE:We aimed to evaluate the comparative risk of hospitalized infection among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who initiated abatacept versus a tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi). METHODS:Using claims data from Truven MarketScan database (2006-2015), we identified patients with RA ages ≥18 years with ≥2 RA diagnoses who initiated treatment with abatacept or a TNFi. The primary outcome was a composite end point of any hospitalized infection. Secondary outcomes included bacterial infection, herpes zoster, and infections affecting different organ systems. We performed 1:1 propensity score (PS) matching between the groups in order to control for baseline confounders. We estimated incidence rates (IRs) and hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) for hospitalized infection. RESULTS:We identified 11,248 PS-matched pairs of patients who initiated treatment with abatacept and TNFi with a median age of 56 years (83% were women). The IR per 1,000 person-years for any hospitalized infection was 37 among patients who initiated treatment with abatacept and 47 in those who initiated treatment with TNFi. The HR for the risk of any hospitalized infection associated with abatacept versus TNFi was 0.78 (95% CI 0.64-0.95) and remained lower when compared to infliximab (HR 0.63 [95% CI 0.47-0.85]), while no significant difference was seen when compared to adalimumab and etanercept. The risk of secondary outcomes was lower for abatacept for pulmonary infections, and similar to TNFi for the remaining outcomes. CONCLUSION:In this large cohort of patients with RA who initiated treatment with abatacept or TNFi as a first- or second-line biologic agent, we found a lower risk of hospitalized infection after initiating abatacept versus TNFi, which was driven mostly by infliximab.

METHODS:OBJECTIVE:Reducing pain is one of the main health priorities for children and young people with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA); however, some studies indicate that pain is not routinely assessed in this patient group. The aim of this study was to explore health care professionals' (HCPs) beliefs about the role of pain and the prioritization of its assessment in children and young people with JIA. METHODS:Semi-structured interviews were conducted with HCPs who manage children and young people with JIA in the UK (including consultant and trainee pediatric rheumatologists, nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists). Data were analyzed qualitatively following a framework analysis approach. RESULTS:Twenty-one HCPs participated. Analyses of the data identified 6 themes, including lack of training and low confidence in pain assessment, reluctance to engage in pain discussions, low prioritization of pain assessment, specific beliefs about the nature of pain in JIA, treatment of pain in JIA, and undervaluing pain reports. Assessment of pain symptoms was regarded as a low priority and some HCPs actively avoided conversations about pain. CONCLUSION:These findings indicate that the assessment of pain in children and young people with JIA may be limited by knowledge, skills, and attitudinal factors. HCPs' accounts of their beliefs about pain in JIA and their low prioritization of pain in clinical practice suggest that a shift in perceptions about pain management may be helpful for professionals managing children and young people with this condition.
