[Ab] Abstract:HYPOTHESIS: Early medical management of rheumatoid arthritis with biotherapy has changed the traditional musculoskeletal damage from this disease. When the distal radio-ulnar joint (DRUJ) is involved, classic procedures may be inappropriate. We chose a hemi-arthroplasty of the DRUJ joint (Eclypse™) in patients with persistent synovitis and chondrolysis with a stable joint. The aim of this study was to assess the intermediate term results of this approach in these specific cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report a retrospective study of 5 Eclypse arthropasties implanted between March 2005 and March 2011. There were 4 women and 1 man, mean age: 58.4years old (54-62) with RA that had been present for 21.6years (15-33). This hemi-arthroplasty replaced the ulnar head with a pyrocarbon component. Patients were evaluated by an independent observer for pain by VAS, range of motion, grip strength in the neutral position by Jamar dynamometer, pronation and supination strengths with a pronosupinator, DASH score and wrist X-rays. RESULTS: One patient was lost to follow-up and the 4 others underwent a follow-up evaluation at 64 months (43-90). There were no intra-operative or postoperative complications. The pain score at the final follow-up was 1.5/10 (0-4), pronation was 70° (60-80) and supination was 80° (80-80). Grip strength was 148% compared to the contralateral side (73-200%). Pronation and supination strengths were 1.7kg (1.5-2) and 2.1kg (2-2.5) respectively. The DASH score was 55.9 points (42.6 to 79.3). X-rays did not show any changes in the ulnar notch. CONCLUSION: This distal radio-ulnar arthroplasty is less invasive and preserves the bone and ligaments. Clinical results are rapid, remain stable over time and are well tolerated. This arthroplasty, which was initially developed for osteoarthritis and traumatic lesions of the DRUJ, is promising for specific cases of rheumatoid arthritis.

[Ti] Title:Results of the Sugioka transtrochanteric rotational osteotomy for osteonecrosis: Frequency and role of a defect of the quadratus femoris muscle in osteonecrosis progression.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: During transtrochanteric rotational osteotomy (RO), it is important to preserve the posterior column artery (PCA), which is generally located in the adipose tissue underneath the quadratus femoris muscle (QF). If there is a defect in the QF, the risk of injuring the PCA, subsequently resulting in total necrosis of the femoral head, may increase. Therefore, we investigated: (1) the frequency of defects of the QF at the time of RO, and (2) clinical outcome of RO based upon a defect of the QF. HYPOTHESIS: The presence of defects of the QF at the time of RO could be detected pre-operatively by magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS: RO was performed in 124 hips between 2001 and 2010. In all, 95 of the hips were in male patients and 29 in female patients. The mean age was 45.4 years (range: 11-61 years) at the time of surgery and MRI was performed before RO in all cases. We retrospectively evaluated the progression of a collapse through 3 years after RO. RESULTS: MRI showed a defect in the QF in four hips (3.2%) (2 males, 2 females), all of which were confirmed intra-operatively. Among the four patients, one (25%) underwent total hip arthroplasty because of varus deformity of the osteotomy site due to total necrosis of the femoral head 1 year after RO. The 120 hips with a normal QF showed no evidence of total necrosis or progression of necrosis of the femoral head, indicating that the presence of defects of the QF may increase the risk of poor survivorship of this procedure. CONCLUSIONS: Defects of the QF have been reported to occur in 1-2% of all patients, whereas in our study the incidence in ON was approximately 3%. In ON patients with QF defects, pre-operative MRI evaluation of the QF appears to be important when planning RO, followed by a carefully performed surgical procedure. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: IV; retrospective case series without control group.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: The acromiohumeral distance (ACHD) is a radiographic parameter for evaluating the presence of a rotator cuff rupture. Previous investigations have demonstrated that several factors may influence the magnitude of the acromiohumeral distance, but glenoid version has not yet been considered. HYPOTHESIS: Our hypothesis was that there is a direct correlation between glenoid version and acromiohumeral distance as well as subacromial clearance. METHODS: Four right glenohumeral joints from adult fresh cadavers were anatomically dissected to the level of the rotator cuff. After fixation to a board and positioning of the humeral head in neutral position, an osteotomy of the glenoid neck was carried out and the version was altered in steps of 5°. The ACHD as well as the subacromial clearance (SAC) were measured for every degree of glenoid version. RESULTS: The ACHD increased with increased anteversion and consistently decreased with increased retroversion of the glenoid. The SAC also depended on glenoid version. Neutral version was associated with a minimal clearance under the anterior third of the acromion, retroversion transferred the minimal SAC posteriorly and anteversion transferred minimal SAC under the coracoacromial ligament. CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that glenoid version correlates directly with the magnitude of ACHD and SAC. Therefore, variations of glenoid version can lead to false interpretations of cuff integrity. TYPE OF STUDY: Biomechanical investigation. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Not possible to define.

[Ti] Title:Macular versus Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Parameters for Diagnosing Manifest Glaucoma: A Systematic Review of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies.

[Ab] Abstract:TOPIC: Macular parameters have been proposed as an alternative to retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) parameters to diagnose glaucoma. Comparing the diagnostic accuracy of macular parameters, specifically the ganglion cell complex (GCC) and ganglion cell inner plexiform layer (GCIPL), with the accuracy of RNFL parameters for detecting manifest glaucoma is important to guide clinical practice and future research. METHODS: Studies using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) and reporting macular parameters were included if they allowed the extraction of accuracy data for diagnosing manifest glaucoma, as confirmed with automated perimetry or a clinician's optic nerve head (ONH) assessment. Cross-sectional cohort studies and case-control studies were included. The QUADAS 2 tool was used to assess methodological quality. Only direct comparisons of macular versus RNFL parameters (i.e., in the same study) were conducted. Summary sensitivity and specificity of each macular or RNFL parameter were reported, and the relative diagnostic odds ratio (DOR) was calculated in hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic (HSROC) models to compare them. RESULTS: Thirty-four studies investigated macular parameters using RTVue OCT (Optovue Inc., Fremont, CA) (19 studies, 3094 subjects), Cirrus OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA) (14 studies, 2164 subjects), or 3D Topcon OCT (Topcon, Inc., Tokyo, Japan) (4 studies, 522 subjects). Thirty-two of these studies allowed comparisons between macular and RNFL parameters. Studies generally reported sensitivities at fixed specificities, more commonly 0.90 or 0.95, with sensitivities of most best-performing parameters between 0.65 and 0.75. For all OCT devices, compared with RNFL parameters, macular parameters were similarly or slightly less accurate for detecting glaucoma at the highest reported specificity, which was confirmed in analyses at the lowest specificity. Included studies suffered from limitations, especially the case-control study design, which is known to overestimate accuracy. However, this flaw is less relevant as a source of bias in direct comparisons conducted within studies. CONCLUSIONS: With the use of OCT, RNFL parameters are still preferable to macular parameters for diagnosing manifest glaucoma, but the differences are small. Because of high heterogeneity, direct comparative or randomized studies of OCT devices or OCT parameters and diagnostic strategies are essential.

[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSE: To assess the prevalence of subretinal drusenoid deposits (SDD) in older adults with healthy maculas and early and intermediate age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using multimodal imaging. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 651 subjects aged ≥60 years enrolled in the Alabama Study of Early Age-Related Macular Degeneration from primary care ophthalmology clinics. METHODS: Subjects were imaged using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) of the macula and optic nerve head (ONH), infrared reflectance, fundus autofluorescence, and color fundus photographs (CFP). Eyes were assessed for AMD presence and severity using the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) 9-step scale. Criteria for SDD presence were identification on ≥1 en face modality plus SD OCT or on ≥2 en face modalities if absent on SD OCT. Subretinal drusenoid deposits were considered present at the person level if present in 1 or both eyes. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prevalence of SDD in participants with and without AMD. RESULTS: Overall prevalence of SDD was 32% (197/611), with 62% (122/197) affected in both eyes. Persons with SDD were older than those without SDD (70.6 vs. 68.7 years, P = 0.0002). Prevalence of SDD was 23% in subjects without AMD and 52% in subjects with AMD (P < 0.0001). Among those with early and intermediate AMD, SDD prevalence was 49% and 79%, respectively. After age adjustment, those with SDD were 3.4 times more likely to have AMD than those without SDD (95% confidence interval, 2.3-4.9). By using CFP only for SDD detection per the AREDS protocol, prevalence of SDD was 2% (12/610). Of persons with SDD detected by SD OCT and confirmed by at least 1 en face modality, 47% (89/190) were detected exclusively on the ONH SD OCT volume. CONCLUSIONS: Subretinal drusenoid deposits are present in approximately one quarter of older adults with healthy maculae and in more than half of persons with early to intermediate AMD, even by stringent criteria. The prevalence of SDD is strongly associated with AMD presence and severity and increases with age, and its retinal topography including peripapillary involvement resembles that of rod photoreceptors. Consensus on SDD detection methods is recommended to advance our knowledge of this lesion and its clinical and biologic significance.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a risk factor for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) as well as esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We aimed to investigate whether HPV infection underlies the field cancerization phenomenon over upper aerodigestive tract to develop synchronous multiple cancers. STUDY DESIGN: A case control study. METHODS: The presence and subtype of HPV-DNA sequence in cancers were examined by polymerase chain reaction and sequencing in a prospective cohort with 100 HNSCCs, 50 of which had synchronous ESCCs. The clinicopathologic characteristics were further analyzed according to the presence of HPV. RESULTS: Twelve patients were HPV-positive, of which 11 were positive for HPV-16. The prevalence of HPV infection were not different between the synchronous and HNSCC alone groups (P = 0.357). Testing for HPV in paired HNSCC and ESCC tissues from the same patient revealed that none were concomitantly HPV-positive. Multivariate logistic regression showed drinking alcohol (odds ratio [OR], 18.75; P = 0.030), alcohol flushing (OR, 2.53; P = 0.041), and body mass index (OR, 0.77; P = 0.001) but not HPV infection were independent risk factors for synchronous phenotype. The patients with synchronous ESCCs had significantly poorer survival than those with HNSCC alone (5-year overall survival: 30% vs. 70%; log-rank P < 0.001). However, patients with HPV-positive HNSCC tend to have favorable outcome than those with HPV-negative HNSCC. CONCLUSIONS: HPV infection plays little role in field cancerization phenomenon to initiate synchronous SCC. The synchronous HNSCC and ESCC from the same patients had no clonal relationship. Routine endoscopic examination of the esophagus should be recommended for patients with risk factors identified. LEVELS OF EVIDENCE: NA. Laryngoscope, 126:1097-1102, 2016.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To evaluate the efficacy of peritumoral hyaluronic acid (HA)-cisplatin therapy in a murine model of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma and to evaluate its effect on cancer stem cells (CSCs). STUDY DESIGN: An orthotopic murine study utilizing University of Michigan squamous cell carcinoma-12 (UMSCC-12) laryngeal cancer cells was conducted in randomized controlled fashion with three treatment arms: saline, systemic cisplatin, and peritumoral HA-cisplatin. METHODS: UMSCC-12 laryngeal cancer cells were inoculated into the buccal mucosa of athymic nude mice followed by weekly treatment with saline, systemic cisplatin, or peritumoral HA-cisplatin for 3 weeks. Tumor response and animal weight was monitored and change in CD44 proportion was analyzed ex vivo. RESULTS: HA-cisplatin demonstrated superior antitumor efficacy and greater reduction in CD44 positivity on ex vivo analysis. CONCLUSIONS: Peritumoral nanoconjugated HA-cisplatin provides superior antitumor efficacy compared to standard cisplatin therapy in an in vivo laryngeal cancer model. There was also selective targeting of CD44+ cancer cells with HA-cisplatin. This therapeutic strategy could represent the first selective laryngeal CSC-targeted therapy. Further preclinical investigation is warranted to evaluate its role for locally advanced head and neck cancer treatment. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: NA Laryngoscope, 126:E184-E190, 2016.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To investigate soluble syndecan-1 (Sdc-1) in the sera of patients with tongue squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and its correlation with the histopathological criteria of tumors. STUDY DESIGN: In a case-control study using a convenient method of sampling, 18 female and 25 male patients with confirmed diagnosis of tongue SCC, and 19 healthy females and 27 males were studied. METHODS: Soluble Sdc-1 was measured in the sera of 43 patients with tongue SCC and was compared with that of healthy age-/sex-matched controls using a commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Clinical and pathological data, along with the demographic characteristics of the patients, were recorded at the time of sampling. RESULTS: The levels of soluble Sdc-1 were decreased in the sera of patients compared to controls (91.17 ± 88.60 vs. 158.17 ± 103.47 ng/mL, P = .002). Although patients who smoke tended to have higher grades (P = .043), there was no significant difference in the level of syndecan-1 between smokers and non-smokers. A significant difference between syndecan-1 in the sera of patients with tumors of different stages was observed (Kruskal-Wallis test P=0.039); however, scarcity of patients in stages I and III decreased the power of the comparison. CONCLUSIONS: Sdc-1 levels in the sera of patients do not correlate with the tumor progression in the tongue SCC. This is in contrast with the reported inverse correlation between the expression level of membranous Sdc-1 and the histological grade and size of head and neck tumors. Therefore, Sdc-1 shedding may not be a major mechanism in the progressive loss of its expression regarding tongue tumor. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: NA Laryngoscope, 126:E191-E195, 2016.

[Ab] Abstract:Tumoral calcinosis is a rare disorder characterized by calcium salt deposition in the periarticular soft tissue region. It often occurs in the hip, elbow, shoulder, foot, and wrist. Soft tissue calcification associated with tumoral calcinosis is rare in the head and neck. The present case describes a 65- year-old male who had been on hemodialysis for 3 years. A bulky mass, containing chalky amorphous calcified material, occurred at the lower neck and superior mediastinum. Chronic renal failure is a common condition associated with secondary tumoral calcinosis. The pathogenesis has been progressively unraveled, which indicates that secondary hyperparathyroidism and tissue injury play a part in multifactorial calcification. Laryngoscope, 126:E196-E198, 2016.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: To describe clinically relevant between-group differences in MD Anderson Dysphagia Inventory (MDADI) scores among head and neck cancer (HNC) patients. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted in 1,136 HNC patients seen for modified barium swallow (MBS) studies. METHODS: The MDADI was administered by written questionnaire at the MBS appointment. MD Anderson Dysphagia Inventory global, composite, and subscale scores were calculated. Anchor-based methods were employed to determine clinically meaningful between-group differences by feeding tube status, aspiration status (per MBS study), and diet level. RESULTS: Mean MDADI scores for the 1,136 patients were: emotional 65.8 ± 17.3, functional 68.1 ± 19.6, physical 60.1 ± 18.6, global 59.3 ± 28.3, and composite 64.0 ± 17.1. Three hundred seventy-eight patients (33%) were feeding tube-dependent; 395 (34.8%) were aspirators; 122 (11%) were nothing per oral (Performance Status Scale-Head and Neck [PSS-HN] diet = 0); and 249 (22%) ate unrestricted, regular diets (PSS-HN diet = 100). Statistically significant (P < 0.0001) between-group differences (feeding tube vs. no feeding tube, aspirator vs. nonaspirator, oral vs. nonoral diet, PSS-HN diet levels) were observed for all mean MDADI scores (global, composite, and subscales). A mean difference of 10 points in composite MDADI scores differentiated feeding tube-dependent from nontube-dependent patients, aspirators from nonaspirators, and distinct PSS-HN diet levels. CONCLUSIONS: We identify that a 10-point between-group difference in composite MDADI scores was associated with clinically meaningful between-group differences in swallowing function.
