Pain after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is not infrequent and may be indicative of a broad spectrum of prosthesis-related, intra-articular, or extra-articular pathologies. To diagnose and treat the underlying cause of a painful TKA, systematic evaluation of the patient is critical to ensure that they are managed appropriately and expeditiously. Th...

Background: Functional outcome scores provide valuable data, yet they can be burdensome to patients and require significant resources to administer. The Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) is a knee-specific patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) and is validated for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction outcomes. The KO...

Background Bilateral distal radius fracture (DRF) is an uncommon injury. We described the outcomes of 10 consecutive cases of bilateral DRF treated with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) at our institution. Methods We retrospectively searched our electronic medical records data for all patients 18 years of age or older treated surgically...

Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) is a widely used patient-reported outcome measurement to track recovery after ACL surgery. This study focuses on the function of daily living subscale (KOOS ADL), which is calculated based on 17 questions. By employing machine learning to predict KOOS ADL scores, we sought to better understand the...
Article
Purpose: The reported incidence of postoperative complications after distal biceps tendon repairs (DBTRs) has been determined largely by retrospective studies. We hypothesized that a large prospective cohort study of DBTRs would demonstrate increased complication rates relative to existing literature values. Secondarily, we hypothesized that most...

A 41-year-old female presented with a 3-month history of gradually worsening anterior knee pain, swelling and inability to flex the knee. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a large intra-articular cystic swelling anterior to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), extending into the Hoffa's infrapatellar fat pad. Following manipulation under a...

Background The aim of this study was to evaluate, prospectively, outcomes following arthroscopic capsular release on patients with a clinical diagnosis of frozen shoulder, comparing immediate mobilization (IM) vs immediate mobilization plus external rotation splintage at night for 10 nights (IM+EXT). Methods Patients with a clinical diagnosis of no...
Article
The purpose of this study was to review the results of distal biceps tendon repair via suture anchors through a single anterior incision. This is a retrospective review of 17 patients (18 repairs) treated for complete distal biceps tendon rupture between 1998 and 2005 by use of G4 Superanchors (DePuy Mitek, Raynham, MA) in our unit. The length of f...
