To evaluate the clinical outcomes of improvement technique of double Endobutton plate for the treatment of Tossy III acromioclavicular joint dislocation. From June 2008 to June 2009, 18 patients with Tossy III acromioclavicular joint dislocation were treated with improvement technique of double Endobutton plate. There were 11 males and 7 females, with an average age of 35 years old ranging from 28 to 55 years. The time from injury to operation was 2 to 5 days (means 3.5 days). All patients were followed and the clinical outcomes were recorded. These 18 patients were followed up from 4 to 8 months (averaged 6 months). All acromioclavicular joint dislocation were reduced. According to the scales of Karlsson, the post-operation function 1 of shoulder-joint in 16 patients were A grade and 2 patients were B grade. The improvement technique of double Endobutton plate is an effective ideal treatment methods for Tossy III acromioclavicular joint dislocation due to its less invasion and convenience and good biocompatibility.

Objective: To evaluate the therapeutic effect of acupoint sticking with Chinese herbs for edema due to chronic cardiac failure.Methods: One hundred and seventy patients in conformity with the diagnostic criteria of edema due to chronic cardiac failure were randomly divided into two groups, 85 cases in each group. The observation group was treated by oral administration of diuretics plus acupoint sticking with Chinese herbs. The control group was treated just by oral administration of diuretics same as the observation group. The therapeutic effects were evaluated after continuous intervention for 14 d.Results: The total effective rate was 90.6% in the observation group, remarkably higher than 67.1% in the control group. The difference of overall therapeutic effect between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.01).Conclusion: The therapeutic effect of acupoint sticking with Chinese herbs plus oral administration of diuretics is better than simple oral administration of diuretics in treatment of edema due to chronic cardiac failure. © 2014, Shanghai Research Institute of Acupuncture and Meridian and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Thumb carpometacarpal joint total arthroplasty has been undertaken for many years. The proponents believe the short-term outcomes are better than trapeziectomy and its variants, but the longer term complications are often higher. This systematic review of all peer reviewed articles on thumb carpometacarpal joint total arthroplasty for osteoarthritis shows that there are reports of many implants. Some are no longer available. The reported outcomes are very variable: for some there are good long-term outcomes to beyond 10 years; for others there are unacceptably high early rates of failure. Overall the published evidence does not show that total arthroplasty is better than trapeziectomy and its variants yet there is a higher complication rate and significant extra cost of using an implant. Future research needs to compare total arthroplasty with trapeziectomy to assess short term results where the arthroplasties may be better, long-term outcomes and the healthcare and personal costs so that surgeons and patients can make fully informed choices about the treatment of symptomatic thumb carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. © The Author(s) 2015.


To study the clinical efficacy of needle-knife to cut off the medial branch of the lumbar posterior ramus under C-arm guiding to treat low back pain caused by lumbar facet osteoarthritis. From July 2009 to June 2011, 60 patients with low back pain caused by lumbar facet osteoarthritis were reviewed,including 34 males and 26 females, ranging in age from 39 to 73 years old,averaged 61.9 years old; the duration of the disease ranged from 6 to 120 months, with a mean of 18.9 months. All the patients were divided into two groups, 30 patients (18 males and 12 females, ranging in age from 39 to 71 years old, needle-knife group) were treated with needle-knife to cut off medial branch of the lumbar posterior ramus under C -arm guiding and the other 30 patients(16 males and 14 females, ranging in age from 41 to 73 years old, hormone injection group) were treated with hormone injection in lumbar facet joint under C-arm guiding. The preoperative JOA scores and the scores at the 1st, 12th and 26th weeks after treatment were analyzed. Before treatment,the JOA scores between the two groups had no significant difference (P= 0.479); after 1 week of treatment, the JOA scores between the two groups had significant difference (P= 0.040), the improvement rate of hormone injection group was superior than that of the needle-knife group,which were (58.73+/-18.20)% in needle-knife group and (71.10+/-22.19)% in hormone injection group; after 12 weeks of treatment, the JOA scores between the two groups had no significant difference(P=0.569), and the improvement rate between the two groups had no significant difference,which were (50.09+/-19.33)% in the needle-knife group and (48.70+/-18.36)%) in the hormone injection group; after 26 weeks of treatment,the JOA scores between the two groups had significant difference (P=0.000), the improvement rate of hormone injection group was superior than that of the needle-knife group,which were (48.56+/-28.24)% in needle-knife group and (15.62+/-11.23 )% in hormone injection group. Using needle-knife to cut off the medial branch of the lumbar posterior ramus could get longer efficacy than hormone injection in the treatment of lumbar facet osteoarthritis.

To explore clinical effects of anterior cervical decompression and fusion by microscope in treating cervical spondylotic myelopathy. From February 2005 to March 2010,21 patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy, 13 males and 8 females with an average age of 51.5 years (ranged, 32 to 71), were treated with anterior cervical decompression using high-speed bur,then bone grafting and fusion with auto iliac bone and internal fixation by microscope. According to JOA score of cervical spondylosis to evaluate clinical effects before and after operation. All patients were followed up from 18 to 24 months with an average of 20 months. JOA score improved significantly from preoperative 9.26 +/- 1.72 to postoperative 13.64 +/- 1.38 (t = 2.452, P = 0.000). According to JOA score, 12 cases were excellent, 7 good and 2 fair. Anterior cervical decompression and fusion by microscope is a refined, safe and effective surgical procedure for cervical spondylotic myelopathy.
