Focus on Orthopedics/Sports Medicine

The Winter 2016 issue of Ochsner Journal includes an interesting collection of articles about orthopedics and sports medicine. If you’ve never seen an x-ray of a successful osteotomy—or of an unsuccessful one—click to “Factors Affecting the Union of Opening Wedge High Tibial Osimage002teotomy Using a Titanium Wedge Plate.” Spoiler alert: the repair involves screws and a titanium plate.

The issue also contains a remarkable series of intraoperative photos illustrating an “Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation for Femoral Trochlear Dysplasia.” These images are so compelling, we selected 4 of them for the issue’s cover collage.

In keeping with the orthopedics/sports medicine theme, the featured contributors for the winter issue are Drs. Mark Meyer and George Chimento of Ochsner Health System who are two of the authors of the article “Preoperative Acute Inflammatory Markers and Predictors for Postoperative Complications in Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty.”
