Article : Artificial Intelligence in knee arthroplasty By Cécile BATAILLER(1), Jobe SHATROV(1), Sébastien PARRATTE(2), Sébastien LUSTIG(1)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is defined as the study of algorithms that give machines the ability to reason and perform cognitive functions such as problem-solving, object, images and word recognition, and decision-making. Over the last 70 years, AI has evolved rapidly with the development of computer models and algorithms designed to replicate human intelligence and perform specific tasks within various industries.
Article : Trauma to the Lisfranc joint By Mejdi Ben Nasr, Maxime Lefèvre, Andréa Fernandez, Jean Hennequin, Laurent Galois
Injuries to the Lisfranc joint (tarsometatarsal – TMT joint) come in different forms and vary in severity from ligament sprains to high energy comminuted fractures. Lisfranc injuries are relatively rare, but in the case of lack or delayed diagnosis, they can cause significant and painful course.
Article : Diagnosis and Therapeutic options for posterior shoulder dislocation By Arnaud Godenèche(1), Steven Roulet(2)
Posterior shoulder instability is rare, with an incidence ranging from 2–5%. The difficulties in managing the condition comes from the patient profile, recognising the different clinical forms, and interpreting the different anatomical forms.
Article : The use of 3D printed models for knee revision surgery By Alessandro Bistolfi, Alessandra Cipolla, Claudio Guidotti, Monica Bonera, Luigi Sabatini, Alessandro Massè
Preoperative planning is a key issue in orthopaedic surgery as it requires precise and specific knowledge of each patient's anatomy, especially for complex primary cases and revision arthroplasty. Two-dimensional (2D) images often cannot provide a comprehensive understanding of severe deformities and it can be difficult to plan details in advance, especially in cases of significant bone loss due to osteolysis or bone tumour pathology.
