Background: All-inside arthroscopic meniscal repairs are favored by most clinicians because of their lower complication rate and decreased morbidity compared with inside-out techniques. Until now, only 1000 cycles have been used for biomechanical testing. Hypothesis: All-inside meniscal repairs will show inferior biomechanical response to cyclic...

Growth factors such as the use of platelet-rich plasma-containing growth factors, e.g., IL-1 and IL-6 or TNF-alpha, have been extensively studied but their clinical benefits could not be found. However, currently there are upcoming studies on loading growth factors on matrices with promising results in animal models. To date, the easiest and most c...
Article
Background: Previous biomechanical studies used single-pull destructive tests in line with the anchor and are limited by a great variability of bone density of cadaver samples. To overcome these limitations, a more physiological test setting was provided using titanium, bioresorbable, and all-suture anchors. Methods: In this controlled laborator...
Article
Purpose Suprapectoral tenodesis is a frequently used technique for treating pathologies of the long head of the biceps brachii (LHBB) tendon. However, so far, no Gold Standard treatment exist. Hence, the arthroscopic LassoLoop360 (LL360) technique is introduced aiming to provide secure fixation and improved biomechanical properties. It was hypothes...

Achilles tendon disorders are most common in individuals who participate in endurance sports that involve repetitive loading of the foot. The increasing incidence is correlated with an expanding participation of the population in recreational and competitive sports and is therefore one of the more common disorders seen in sports medicine. In the fo...

Rotator cuff repairs have a high failure rate proportional to the tear size. Various techniques have been described to improve the repair strength and failure rate. The described surgical technique uses a biodegradable subacromial balloon-shaped spacer (InSpace; OrthoSpace, Caesarea, Israel) that is implanted arthroscopically to protect our tendon...

The evaluation of the glenohumeral joint laxity requires the estimate of the displacements of the humeral head center (HHC) with respect to the glenoid. To the authors' knowledge, several studies have been conducted to estimate HHC translations in vivo but data under anterior loading conditions has not been collected yet. Aim of this study was to d...

Pain in the posterior area of the shoulder can be caused by pathologies of the suprascapular nerve. Pain may be due to neural entrapment while the nerve is passing through the suprascapular notch. A tear of the rotator cuff may cause traction, resulting in shoulder pain. This might be one of the reasons for persisting pain after successful rotator...

SUMMARY The understanding of the mechanism underlying glenohumeral joint stability is a key issue in orthopaedic surgery. The development of a non-invasive methodology to assess in vivo glenohumeral joint translation, when selected loads are applied, would contribute to the advancement of the state of art. Seven patients were acquired using a horiz...

The shoulder has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the human body. This is due, in part, to the complex interplay between the glenohumeral (GH) joint and the scapulothoracic (ST) articulation. Currently, our ability to study shoulder kinematics is limited, because existing models isolate the GH joint and rely on manual manipulation to cr...
