Background: Goal of the present study was the evaluation of clinical and radiological results after treatment of the first carpometacarpal joint by trapezium resection and implantation of a Swanson silicone prosthesis by means of a retrospetive study. However, up to now, only a few long-term data for this surgical technique are available. Methods and Patients: Retrospectively the results of 100 trapezium resections in 72 patients with subsequent joint replacement by a Swanson silicone prosthesis have been followed up over 8.6 years on average. Besides the range of motion, the strengh in grip, tip pinch and key pinch were measured. The quality of pain was determined using a visual analogus pain scale from 1-10. The postoperative subjective satisfaction of patients was recorded as well as the DASH, Mayo, modified Wrist and Krimmer scores. In follow-up X-ray controls, subluxations of the silicone implants as well as bony abnormalities were evaluated. Results: The postoperative range of motion of the trapeziometacarpal joint in radial abduction was measured with 52° and at palmar abduction with 39°. The average grip strength amounted to 16.5kg. This represented 80% of the value of the contralateral side. In tip pinch the force value was 3.3 kg, corresponding to 70% of that of the opposite side and in key pinch, it was 3.5kg, corresponding to 71% of the healthy contralateral side. The DASH score was recorded with 22.5 points. Postoperative pain symptoms on the visual analogue pain scale were recorded at 2.4 points. The majority of the patients were satisfied or very satisfied after the surgical treatment. In X-ray controls, subluxations of the silicone implants could be detected in 54 cases (61.4%) as well as bony abnormalities in 41 cases (46.6%). However, there was no correlation between the radiological findings and patient satisfaction. Conclusion: Trapezium resection and joint replacement with a silicone prosthesis achieves good results. However, the high number of radiographic subluxations of the prothesis and bone abnormalities as a cause of foreign body reactions limits these results. Therefore, despite the good clinical findings, this method will not been conducted any more in our patient population. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart New York.

The total REC (reduction in earning capacity) after a thermal trauma is usually assessed using an appraisal form for burns victims, initially developed by Hoerbrandt and von Donnersmarck (1995). The criteria for functional impairment, local findings and vegetative-somatic complaints are somewhat imprecise given the broad scope of interpretation which the evaluator can employ in making an appraisal. This means that the overall appraisal of REC is subjective on the part of the evaluator. In addition, one can only calculate an overall REC of at most 40% from local findings and vegetative-somatic symptoms, even in patients with extensive large area burns. Considering these points we investigated the dependency of the results on the evaluator as well as the limited validity of the appraisal form originally developed by Hrbrand and Donnersmark.

Background: The pulmonary and cardiovascular ramifications of smoking are well documented and this also applies to increased wound healing complications in smokers. The aim of this study was to ascertain whether preoperatively refraining from smoking would affect the incidence of wound healing disorders. Material and methods: Between 2006 and 2008 a total of 295 patients underwent aesthetic (n = 167) or reconstructive surgery (n = 128). They were divided into three groups: A (n = 98) non-smokers for at least 2 years, B (n = 99) patients who refrained from smoking 6 weeks prior to surgery and C (n = 98) smokers. Smoking abstinence was verified by cotinine tests. Wound healing complications were defined as dehiscent wounds, wound infections, atypical scar formation and adiponecrosis. Results: Smokers developed wound healing complications in 48. 2% of cases, non-smokers in 21. 0% and patients who had stopped smoking for 6 weeks in 30. 8% of cases (p = 0. 006). Conclusion: Elective surgery should only be performed on non-smokers and smokers who had refrained from smoking for at least 6 weeks to reduce wound healing complications as far as possible. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.

Sarcomas of the hand and wrist are rare malignancies, which should be referred to high-volume comprehensive cancer centres providing multidisciplinary treatment options. The tumour board should propose patient-oriented oncological pathways as well as sophisticated hand and plastic reconstructive procedures. In Addition, isolated limb perfusion with TNF-alpha and melphalan is likely to lead to preoperative tumour shrinkage allowing for R0 resection in sano. Our clinical results in long-term survivors demonstrate reduced amputation rates and salvage of basic hand function when a risk-adapted treatment rationale is applied. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

Objective: Some patients with sacral scars, e. g. those developing after pilonidal sinus surgery, report discomfort when sitting or putting strain on the scars. In order to establish objective criteria for the assessment of this kind of discomfort and for the evaluation of scar quality after various types of surgical interventions, it is of interest to provide a method which enables physicians to assess skin quality in the sacral region. For this purpose, we developed a mechanical, non-invasive, fast and cost-neutral method for the measurement of skin distensibility and mobility. We examined a healthy sample of 100 study participants to establish benchmark values for scar-free skin in the sacral region and to identify the factors which impact skin quality, e. g. age, weight and sex. Method: With the participant in a standing position, 4 vertically arranged measurement points, which are exactly spaced in cranial to caudal direction by 10 mm-100 mm-10 mm, are marked in the lumbar and sacral region, respectively. The participant is then asked to bend forward and - with arms and legs fully stretched on both sides - to touch both their patellae with the balls of their hands so that the distance between the measurement points can be measured in this position as well. Then, with the participant standing upright again, another measurement is taken to establish the distance by which the lowest point can be manually moved in cranial direction. Results: The sacral-lumbar skin distension quotient (lumbar skin distension / sacral skin distension×100), which can easily be calculated from the measurements, is independent of age and BMI and has a standard range of about 80-93%. Sacral skin mobility ranges from 11 to 18 mm, but is slightly negatively influenced by a high BMI. Conclusion: By comparing lumbar and sacral skin distension in the same study participant, we are able to obtain intraindividually valid findings about possible changes in skin and scar quality. Owing to the lack of known published data about sacral skin elasticity, the proposed measurement method, while restricted to a number of special cases, seems to be practicable and independent of the patient's general condition. Compared with devices that have been used for the measurement of elasticity in other skin areas, our procedure is generally available and cost-neutral. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart·New York.

Extrinsic chronic nerve compression induced by nonendothelium derived vascular tumors is a rare occurrence at the forearm level. We present a case of severe chronic compression of the radial sensory nerve (RSN) caused by an undiagnosed venous glomangioma. The tumor was excised with complete symptoms relief. In the presence of severe nerve compression syndromes in young age, without predisposing comorbidities, atypical extrinsic compression due to vascular tumors should be considered.

The calculation of REC forms the basis of expert opinions for the purposes of making accident insurance assessments after an occupational accident or an accident suffered en route while travelling to or from the workplace. The estimation of REC is based on a procedure quoted in the 1995 “Jahrbuch der Versicherungsmedizin” (Yearbook of Insurance Medicine) using a form developed by Henkel von Donnersmarck and Hoerbrand. The overall estimation of damages resulting from the accident comprises 3 main components, namely the functional impairment, the assessment of local findings and the resulting somatic and vegetative complaints. The criteria for all 3 components are nevertheless imprecise and open to a great deal of interpretation on the part of the evaluator, leading to a highly variable and subjective overall assessment of REC. The new REC form includes a modified factor-based categorisation of the scar quality and the localisation, so that assessment can now be carried out in a differentiated manner. Visible, stigmatising areas such as the neck are provided with their own Q values. The pigmental and textural alterations describing the scar quality are now more precisely defined. Considering the complexity of the somatic and vegetative alterations, more precise (objective) assessments can now be derived. The new REC form increases the validity and transparency of post-thermal trauma REC assessments for the purposes of making statutory accident insurance assessments.
