JAAOS is pleased to present video highlights for the 17 Award Winner and Honorable Mention Orthopaedic Video Theater (OVT) videos from the 2017 Annual Meeting. Two to three video-related abstracts are being published in each issue of JAAOS from August 2017 through January 2018. The Orthopaedic Video Theater Committee, under the direction of Chair J. Michael Bennett, MD, selected the 17 Award Winner and Honorable Mention videos from a field of 123 video submissions. All videos passed a peer-review process performed by the 12-member Orthopaedic Video Theater Committee under the direction of the Academy’s Annual Meeting Program Committee. The peer-review process is utilized to ensure that the videos are evidence- and outcome-based, exemplifying the standard of care with regard to indications, anatomic landmarks, treatment options, and surgical techniques and how to apply them in a clinical setting. To subscribe to the Orthopaedic Video Theater and access the full videos, visit www.orthotheater.org. The subscription rate is $199/year for AAOS members and $299/year for nonmembers.

The video shows the surgical correction of a double major scoliosis deformity in a 14-year-old girl with normal kyphosis and type C lumbar modifier. Double major curve involves a major thoracic structural curve and a minor thoracolumbar or lumbar structural curve. The axial rotation of the vertebrae and ribs induce the rib hump deformity in the thoracic region and thoracolumbar passage, which requires particular attention at the time of vertebral rotation. To correct the deformity in all three planes, the surgical correction is performed by applying simultaneous dual-rod and direct vertebral rotation.

Our technique was developed to use the advantages of traditional percutaneous pinning (eg, temporary fixation, preservation of the soft tissues, better cosmesis) and improve its limitations, in particular, the weak fixation in osteoporotic bone. The main modifications are the use of long threaded pins to achieve purchase in good-quality bone beneath the articular surface of the humeral head and in the lateral cortex of the metaphysis, which helps to obtain strong bicortical fixation, as well as the use of a dedicated external fixator to further increase pin stability.

Retrospective evaluation of 13 patients (mean age, 34.8 years) treated with tibialis posterior tendon transfer to manage foot drop deformity secondary to insufficiency of the muscles of the anterior compartment of the leg. The tibialis posterior tendon was transferred onto the intermediate or lateral cuneiform, then pulled out through a transosseous tunnel and fixed at the plantar surface. Seven patients underwent Achilles tendon lengthening before tibialis posterior transfer. Results were excellent in five patients, good in five, fair in two, and poor in one based on the Stanmore scale (0 to 100). No major complications occurred.

For severe trochlear dysplasia with patellar instability, a sulcus-deepening trochleoplasty is a reliable surgery to correct a patient’s abnormal distal femoral morphology. In previous studies, redislocation rates after this procedure have been universally low. In this video, the surgical technique is presented in detail, and one center’s experience with this procedure is examined.
