Modified Iliac Crest Reconstruction with Bone Cement for Reduction of Donor Site Pain and Morbidity after Open Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy: A Prospective Study

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Purpose: This study was to determine the efficacy of iliac crest reconstruction using bone cement in reducing pain and morbidity at the donor site in patients undergoing open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) with tricortical iliac crest autologous graft.

Materials and methods: Thirty-three patients who underwent iliac crest reconstruction using polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) bone cement (group A) and thirty patients who had no iliac crest reconstruction (group B) were enrolled in this study. All patients were evaluated for pain and functional disability related to graft harvesting using the pain and functional visual analogue scale (VAS) score during hospital stay and at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months postoperatively.

Results: There was significant difference between the two groups in terms of pain and function. The pain VAS score was significantly lower in group A than group B during the first 2 weeks postoperatively (p=0.04) and the functional VAS score was also significantly lower in group A during the first 2 weeks postoperatively (p<0.001) in terms of breathing, sitting up from the supine position, and standing up with crutches from the sitting position.

Conclusions: Iliac crest donor site reconstruction using PMMA bone cement in patients undergoing OWHTO significantly decreased pain and improved function during the first 2 weeks postoperatively when compared to patients who underwent OWHTO without iliac crest reconstruction.

Mentions: The pain VAS score was significantly lower in group A when compared to group B during the first 2 weeks postoperatively (Fig. 4). The pain VAS score was significantly lower in group A at 1 week (p<0.001) and 2 weeks (p=0.04) postoperatively whereas it showed no significant difference between the two groups at 6 weeks (p=0.99), 3 months (p=0.23), and 6 months (p=0.92) postoperatively (Fig. 4). The functional VAS score was significantly lower (p<0.001) in group A when compared to group B at discharge (or 2 weeks postoperatively) for all 3 daily activities of breathing, sitting up from the supine position, and standing up with crutches from the sitting position (Fig. 5).
