Infrapatellar contracture syndrome is an uncommon but recalcitrant cause of reduced range of motion after knee surgery or injury. The results and conclusions presented here are based on a retrospective clinical study evaluating the long-term outcome in 75 patients who developed infrapatellar contracture syndrome. These 75 patients (76 knees) were evaluated(More)
To better understand anatomic and other possible predisposing factors for anterior cruciate ligament injuries, we retrospectively studied 31 patients with noncontact, bilateral injuries of this ligament. The 31 patients were carefully matched by age, sex, height, weight, and activity level with 23 control subjects who had no history of knee injury. All 54(More)
We retrospectively reviewed the records of 2050 arthroscopic knee surgeries performed at The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital from January 1993 to December 1994. The number of clinically detected deep venous thromboses, with confirmation by duplex ultrasonography, was determined. Prospectively, preoperative and postoperative duplex ultrasonographic images were(More)
A clinical and biomechanical evaluation of a patellofemoral knee brace was conducted to determine subjectively and objectively if the brace was effective in controlling knee motion and relieving patellofemoral pain symptoms. The subjective results indicated that the patellofemoral brace was able to significantly improve the level of perceived knee stability(More)
Techniques for the repair and reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) have advanced rapidly in the last decade. The procedure for ACL reconstruction and its equipment have become progressively sophisticated from what was once an open surgery requiring dislocation of the patella to the point where ACL reconstruction surgery can now be(More)
