Article
Radial transection of the peripheral fibers of the meniscus could render it nonfunctional; however, the biomechanical consequences of a complete lateral meniscal radial tear and repair in human specimens have not been elucidated. A complete radial tear will exhibit knee contact mechanics approaching those of total meniscectomy. Repair of complete r...
Article
Objective: Wrist arthroscopy is a challenging discipline with limited training exposure during residency. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of virtual knee arthroscopy simulation training for gaining proficiency in wrist arthroscopy. Design: Participants were recorded performing a cadaveric wrist arthroscopy simulation....
Article
Background Orthopaedic surgery is the least diverse surgical subspecialty in medicine. However, to date, there is no literature that shows which medical schools have successfully contributed to improving orthopaedic surgeon diversity. Objective The purpose of this study is to identify the top U.S. medical schools that have successfully matched bla...
Article
Background Shoulder arthroplasty (SA) procedures are increasingly common. The Charlson and Elixhauser indices are ICD-10 based measures used in large databases to describe the patient case mix in terms of secondary medical conditions. There is a paucity of data on the relationship between these indices and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs)...
Article
Background Currently, appropriateness criteria evaluating when to perform total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is lacking. In the absence of society guidelines and limited quality evidence, the UCLA/RAND method provides a suitable alternative to evaluate appropriateness and assist in clinical decision-making. Given the rise in utilization, appropriate...
Article
Introduction: There are approximately 573 practicing Black orthopaedic surgeons in the United States, which represents 1.9% overall. The purpose of this study was to describe this underrepresented cohort within the field of orthopaedic surgery and to report their perception of occupational opportunity and workplace discrimination. Methods: An an...
Article
Hypothesis/background: The role of the subscapularis in reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) remains controversial. Studies had shown that subscapularis repair has no significant influence on the functional outcome of patients. However, few studies have assessed the postoperative integrity of the subscapularis tendon after RSA. The aim of the curre...
Article
Aims: To investigate the impact of the Charlson and Elixhauser comorbidity indices on patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs) following shoulder arthroplasty. Methods: Patients undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA), reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA), or hemiarthroplasty (HA) from 2016 to 2018 were identified, along with the Charlson...
Article
Background: Tissue adhesives (TAs) represent a promising alternative or augmentation method to conventional tissue repair techniques. In sports medicine, TA use has been suggested and implemented in the treatment of meniscal tears. The aim of this review was to present and discuss the current evidence and base of knowledge regarding the clinical us...
Article
Background: This study aimed to describe the clinical outcomes and complications of 10 cases of pyrocarbon interposition shoulder arthroplasty (PISA). Methods: The clinical and radiographic records of 10 patients who underwent PISA using the InSpyre shoulder prosthesis (Tornier-Wright, Bloomington, MN, USA) between July 2012 and March 2017 were...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the construct validity and interobserver reliability of a hip arthroscopy virtual simulator using the Arthroscopic Surgery Skill Evaluation Tool (ASSET) global rating scale. Methods Thirty participants (23 male/7 female) completed a diagnostic arthroscopy and a loose body retrieval simulatio...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this study was to evaluate how patients treated with reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) achieve internal rotation (IR) using video assessment and to compare this to patient reported outcomes measures (PROMs). Methods We reviewed 215 preoperative and 657 postoperative videos (3 to 78 months) for 215 patients who underwent pr...
Article
Background Instability arthropathy is a known cause of glenohumeral osteoarthritis (OA) among patients with and without prior shoulder stabilization. This study aims to compare the clinical, radiographic, and patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) scores among total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) patients with and without a history of shoulder stabil...
Article
The role of intramedullary (IM) fixation of displaced mid-shaft clavicle fractures in adolescents has not been described. This study analyzes characteristics and outcomes of IM fixation in adolescent clavicle fractures. Patients < 18 years with acute, mid-shaft clavicle fractures treated with IM clavicle pins between March 2007 and August 2013 were...

Osteochondral allograft transplantation (OCA) is a proven cartilage restoration procedure for patients with large chondral defects. However, elongated condylar lesions pose a challenge for dowel OCA in restoring articular surface congruity. Recently, instrumentation to harvest a single, elliptical allograft has been developed for treating ovoid les...

Management of full-thickness cartilage defects of the patella remains a significant clinical challenge. Osteochondral allograft transplantation (OCA) is a reliable cartilage restoration procedure for large chondral defects of the knee. OCA reports good long-term outcomes for condylar defects but limited literature on outcomes of patellar defects. S...

Background The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes and cost of shoulder arthroplasty (SA) performed in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) compared with SA performed in hospital-based surgery settings. Methods The State Inpatient Databases and the State Ambulatory Surgery Databases were queried for patients undergoing primary...
Article
Objectives: There is a need for meaningful and reliable measures of surgical competency in residency education. The goal of the current study is to incorporate the Ottawa Surgical Competency Operating Room Evaluation (O-SCORE) into the process of resident evaluation at our institution and to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of its use thro...
Chapter
Anatomic repair and reconstruction of the distal biceps tendon footprint is the treatment of choice among patients who desire a return to full elbow flexion and supination strength after distal biceps rupture. Although good to excellent results are achieved in the majority of patients after distal biceps repair, the surgical complication rate varie...
Article
Background: Patellar tendon ruptures require surgical repair to optimize outcomes, but no consensus exists regarding the ideal repair technique. Cortical button fixation is a secure method for tendon repair that has not been studied in patellar tendons. Hypothesis: Cortical button repair is biomechanically superior to the standard transpatellar...

Aims: The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the outcomes of coccygectomy for patients with chronic coccydynia. Patients and methods: Between 2007 and 2011, 98 patients underwent coccygectomy for chronic coccydynia. The patients were aged > 18 years, had coccygeal pain, local tenderness and a radiological abnormality, and had fail...

Objectives: The biomembrane (induced membrane) formed around polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) spacers has value in clinical applications for bone defect reconstruction. Few studies have evaluated its cellular, molecular or stem cell features. Our objective was to characterise induced membrane morphology, molecular features and osteogenic stem cell ch...

Background: Among civilians, emergency tourniquet (TKT) use is infrequent because of concern for TKT-related complications. In large part because of positive reports from the military on emergency TKT use, all ambulances serving Mecklenburg County, which includes the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, were equipped with commercial TKTs in Septembe...

Objectives Patella tendon rupture requires surgical repair for optimal outcomes yet there is no consensus regarding appropriate repair technique or duration of post-operative immobilization. Cortical button fixation is a secure method for tendon repair but has not been studied in patellar tendons. This study evaluates a novel patellar tendon repair...
