What is a ossicle resection?

What is a ossicle resection?

An endoscopic technique for excision of the ossicle associated with Osgood-Schlatter disease is reported. It has the advantages of avoidance of painful surgical scars and preservation of the integrity of the patellar tendon, with the potential for improved cosmetic and functional results.

What is ossicle in patellar tendon?

The ossicle is generally small and locates near the tibial tubercle and beneath the patella tendon. Therefore, activity-related pain focused on the tibial tubercle and distal patellar tendon is a common complaint of OSD patients [5]. However, rarely a large ossicle may protrude into the knee joint [6, 7].

How long does it take to recover from Osgood Schlatter surgery?

If you need surgery, recovery time can range between 8 weeks to 12 months. Total recovery time depends on many factors, including: the severity of your condition.

Can you get surgery to get rid of Osgood Schlatter?

The Osgood Schlatter disease surgery is typically only done in adults, as the disease usually resolves itself in children and surgery could damage the growth plate area. The surgery removes the bone fragments that are causing the irritation of the tendon.

Do you need surgery for Osgood Schlatter’s disease?

The usual treatment for Osgood-Schlatter disease and its associated knee pain involves taking time off from the activity that makes the pain worse, applying ice and using anti-inflammatory medications. Treatment for Osgood-Schlatter disease rarely requires surgery.

What is an ossicle?

Definition of ossicle : a small bone or bony structure (such as the malleus, incus, or stapes)

What is OSD knee?

Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition that causes pain and swelling below the knee joint, where the patellar tendon attaches to the top of the shinbone (tibia), a spot called the tibial tuberosity. There may also be inflammation of the patellar tendon, which stretches over the kneecap.

What is the difference between Osgood Schlatters and patellar tendonitis?

In comparison to Osgood-Schlatter disease, patellar tendinitis is an injury to your patellar tendon, the tissue connecting your knee to your shinbone. Pain associated with patellar tendonitis is located slightly higher than Osgood-Schlatter disease, as opposed to where your patellar tendon attaches to your shinbone.

Why do Osgood Schlatters hurt adults?

The weakening of the tibial tubercle due to overstress and overuse leads to Osgood-Schlatter disease developing. Some of the symptoms of Osgood-Schlatter disease are: Pain, swelling or tenderness in the knee or lower leg. Increased warmth around the area of the tibial tubercle.

Is ossification of the patellar tendon normal after Patellectomy?

In the literature, ossification of the patellar tendon has been reported mainly after knee injuries, as a consequence of patellectomy, after intramedullary nailing of the tibia and after Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction using bone-patellar tendon-bone graft [ 6 – 10 ].

What are the sutures used in patellar tendon repair?

Figure 2. Front view of knee after patellar tendon repair. The primary sutures repair the torn tendon and the relaxing suture encompasses the repair and goes around the patella, providing initial protection to the repaired portion of the tendon.

Is the patella next to the tibia?

Next to the tibia is the fibula, which runs parallel to the tibia on the outside of the leg. The patella, commonly called the knee cap, is embedded in the quadriceps and patellar tendon which articulates with the front of the femur, forming the patellofemoral joint (Figure 1).

How do you repair a torn patellar tendon?

This is done by “releasing” the Quadriceps tendon and muscle from the Patella. Then after the Patellar Tendon reconstruction is done, and the Patella is in the right alignment/place, the Quadriceps muscle and tendon are then “repaired” back to the Patella in a lengthened position.
