Aims: Rotator cuff (RC) tears are common musculoskeletal injuries which often require surgical intervention. Noninvasive pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) devices have been approved for treatment of long-bone fracture nonunions and as an adjunct to lumbar and cervical spine fusion surgery. This study aimed to assess the effect of continuous PEMF...

Introduction A commonly used method of fixation of the transferred coracoid in the traditional Latarjet–Bristow procedure (open or arthroscopic) is by two bicortical screws. Although mechanically effective, screw fixation is also a major source of hardware and neurologic complications. This study aimed to compare the biomechanical performances of t...
Article
Aims: Intra-articular 90Yttrium (90Y) is an adjunct to surgical treatment by synovectomy for patients with diffuse-type tenosynovial giant-cell tumour (dtTGCT) of the knee, with variable success rates. Clinical information is, however, sparse and its value remains unclear. We investigated the long-term outcome of patients who underwent synovectomy...
Article
Introduction: The purpose of the current study was to compare the gait patterns in patients with three differing knee pathologies - knee osteoarthritis (OA), degenerative meniscal lesion (DML) and spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SONK) and a group of healthy controls. Hypothesis: A simple gait test will detect differences between different...

Introduction: Chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) is a common injury in young athletes, causing pain in the involved leg compartment during strenuous exercise. The gold standard treatment is fasciotomy, but most of the reports on its effectiveness include relatively small cohorts and relatively short follow-up periods. This study report...

The effect of corticosteroids on tendons is poorly understood, and current data are insufficient and conflicting. To evaluate the effects of corticosteroid injections on intact and injured rotator cuffs (RCs) through biomechanical and radiographic analyses in a rat model. Controlled laboratory study. A total of 70 rats were assigned to 7 groups. Un...

Objectives: Conservative treatments for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears may have just as good an outcome as invasive treatments. These include muscle strengthening and neuromuscular proprioceptive exercises to improve joint stability and restore motion to the knee. The Purpose of the current work presents was to examine the feasibility of a...
Article
Background: This study was devised to examine the effect of a novel biomechanical therapy for patients suffering from anterior knee pain (AKP). Methods: A retrospective analysis of 48 patients suffering from AKP was performed. Patients underwent a gait evaluation, using an electronic walkway mat, and completed the SF-36 health survey and the WOM...

Purpose The purpose of the current study was to assess the effects of a new foot-worn device on the gait, physical function and pain in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis (OA) who had a low-impact injury to the medial meniscus causing a degenerative meniscal tear. Methods A retrospective analysis of 34 patients with knee OA and a degenerat...
Article
Purpose: Gait metric alterations have been previously reported in patients suffering from anterior knee pain (AKP). Characterization of simple and measureable gait parameters in these patients may be valuable for assessing disease severity as well as for follow-up. Previous gait studies in this population have been comprised of relatively small co...
Article
Extensor mechanism disruption, whether due to patella fracture or tendon rupture, generally occurs after low-energy trauma and frequently involves an indirect mechanism. When the fracture is comminuted and reconstruction is impossible, a partial or total patellectomy may be indicated. Although some authors advocate total patellectomy, partial patel...

Focal osteochondral lesions of the knee are a common cause of pain and other knee symptoms, and are mostly caused by traumatic injuries. The spontaneous repair ability of the articular cartilage tissue is very limited. Thus, focal chondral lesions result in early degenerative changes and post-traumatic osteoarthritis. The surgical treatment of foca...

Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath is a benign tumor typically presenting as a nontender mass around the hand and wrist. Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath in large joints is typically larger and shows higher rates of local recurrence, as well as common features with pigmented villonodular synovitis. We describe two cases of giant cell tumors...
Article
Distal femoral varus osteotomy (DFVO) may be indicated for symptomatic lateral compartment gonarthrosis associated with valgus deformity in younger, active patients. Thirty-three consecutive DFVOs (31 patients) with a minimum follow-up of ten years (mean 15.1, range 10-25) were reviewed. Fifteen DFVOs were converted to total knee arthroplasty (TKA)...
Article
Background: Injury to the axillary nerve has devastating results. Variations in the distance between the acromial edge and axillary nerve range from 20-70 mm. The purpose of this study was to anatomically analyze the relations between the anterior trunk of the axillary nerve and the acromion in order to provide guidelines for minimizing intraoperat...
Article
Distal femoral varus osteotomy (DFVO) of the knee may be indicated for young, active patients with unicompartmental arthritis and valgus deformity. We report on 40 DFVOs with a mean follow-up of 123 months. At the most recent follow-up, 24 knees had good or excellent results (60%), 3 had fair results (7.5%), and 3 had poor results (7.5%). Four in t...
Article
Fresh osteochondral allograft transplantation is a treatment option for young patients with osteochondral lesions of the knee. The present study evaluated the surgical complexity of, and the prevalence of complications related to, total knee arthroplasty in patients who had had a previous osteochondral graft transplantation. A retrospective analysi...

Our aim was to determine if the height of the cup, lateralisation or the abduction angle correlated with functional outcome or survivorship in revision total hip replacement in patients with a previous diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of the hip. A retrospective investigation of 51 patients (63 hips) who had undergone revision total hip replace...
Article
The arthroscope has served the orthopaedic surgeon as a diagnostic and operative tool since 1931. Several reports on its use in the treatment of extra-articular injuries have been published over the past few years. The surgical approach to the posterior ankle region is associated with some complications stemming from the poor blood supply to this r...
