The human elbow joint has been regarded as a loose hinge joint, with a unique helical motion of the axis during extension-flexion. This study was designed to identify the helical axis in the ulnohumeral joint during elbow extension-flexion by tracking the midpoint between the coronoid tip and the olecranon tip of the proximal ulna in a three-dimensional(More)
To compare users’ hand movements in performing validated shoulder arthroscopic tasks between a 30° and a wide-angle arthroscopic system, using phantom models with an optical motion analysis system. Twelve orthopaedic residents were enrolled and randomly allocated into two groups. In order to compensate for any learning effect, a Latin square(More)
BACKGROUND Rotator cuff surgery in wheelchair-bound patients is challenging, and clinical data on this condition are limited. We hypothesized that rotator cuff repair in these patients might improve functional outcomes. METHODS In a retrospective study, data on 13 paraplegic patients (8 men and 5 women; 16 shoulders) who underwent rotator cuff repair were(More)
BACKGROUND There is no definite radiographic landmark in plain radiographs for proximal humeral rotation, which is an important parameter for avoiding rotational malalignment during fracture fixation. Here, we used radiographic images of cadaveric humeri to determine whether the landmark of the crest of lesser tuberosity (CoLT) in plain radiographs could be(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether rotator cuff repair improves subjective and functional outcomes in patients aged ≥75 years. METHODS From May 2005 to March 2013, 121 elderly patients who underwent rotator cuff repair for large and massive rotator cuff tears were evaluated retrospectively. Patients with an American Society of(More)
To study whether autologus blood transfusion systems reduce the requirement of allogneic blood transfusion in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty. A comprehensive search of the published literature with PubMed, Scopus and Science direct database was performed. The following search terms were used: (total knee replacement) OR (total knee(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about the bioabsorbable, anchor related postoperative changes in rotator cuff surgery, which has become more popular recently. The purpose of the present study was to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to analyze the degradation of bioabsorbable anchors and to determine the incidences and characteristics of early postoperative(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the apexes and angulations along the curvature in the posterior border of the proximal ulna-termed the "dorsal apex curve" (DAC)-using the computer-aided design software. METHODS Eight pairs of normal cadaveric ulnae were analyzed. The ulnar Cartesian coordinate system was standardized using a user-defined coordinate systems feature.(More)
BACKGROUND Ligamentous injury associated with isolated coronoid fracture had been sparingly reported. Concealed or unclear fractures and ligamentous or articular cartilage lesions are promptly acknowledged by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) but cannot be entirely pictured in regular radiological assessments. In isolated coronoid fracture, the fragment size(More)
Background/Aim. Fractures of the proximal humerus or shaft are common, however, ipsilateral neck and shaft humerus fracture is a rare phenomenon. This combination injury is challenging for orthopaedic surgeons because of its complex treatment options at present. The purpose of this study was to review a series of ipsilateral humeral neck and shaft fractures(More)
