PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to objectively evaluate the anatomic and biomechanical outcomes of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with transtibial versus anteromedial portal drilling of the femoral tunnel. METHODS Ten human cadaveric knees (5 matched pairs) without ligament injury or pre-existing arthritis underwent ACL(More)
PURPOSE To compare the clinical outcomes of patients undergoing all-arthroscopic versus mini-open rotator cuff repair. In addition, ultrasound was used to assess the integrity of the repair. METHODS A total of 38 patients who had undergone all-arthroscopic repair and 33 patients who had undergone mini-open repair with minimum 2-year follow-up were(More)
HYPOTHESIS Lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL) reconstruction is a commonly used surgical approach for the treatment of posterolateral rotatory instability (PLRI). We hypothesized that favorable clinical results could be obtained using the docking technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1996 and 2009, the docking technique was used for surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Proximal tibial slope has been shown to influence anteroposterior translation and tibial resting point in the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)-deficient knee. The effect of proximal tibial slope on rotational stability of the knee is unknown. HYPOTHESIS Change in proximal tibial slope produced via osteotomy can influence both static(More)
Internal impingement of the shoulder refers to a constellation of pathologic conditions, including, but not limited to, articular-sided rotator cuff tears, labral tears, biceps tendinitis, anterior instability, internal rotation deficit, and scapular dysfunction. Physiologic adaptations to throwing include increased external rotation, increased humeral and(More)
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate that specialized magnetic resonance imaging provides an accurate assessment of lesions of the articular cartilage of the knee. Arthroscopy was used as the comparative standard. Eighty-eight patients who had an average age of thirty-eight years were evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging and subsequent(More)
Idiopathic adhesive capsulitis usually responds to gentle physical therapy or, if that fails, to closed manipulation with the patient under anesthesia. In some patients, however, loss of motion may be refractory to either of these treatments and an operative release may be indicated. We are reporting on the technique and results of arthroscopic capsular(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated predictable healing after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair at a single time point, but few studies have evaluated tendon healing over time. HYPOTHESIS Rotator cuff tears that are intact on ultrasound at 1 time point will remain intact, and clinical results will improve regardless of healing status. STUDY(More)
BACKGROUND It has been assumed that a robust vascular response at the tendon to bone interface during rotator cuff repairs is an integral part to the healing process. There are few studies that have explored this in an in-vivo prospective fashion. PURPOSE To prospectively characterize vascular and anatomical patterns in repaired rotator cuff tendons using(More)
PURPOSE To discuss a new technique for the surgical treatment of type II SLAP lesions as well as the evaluation of the technique's effectiveness with a minimum 2-year follow-up. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective clinical follow-up study. METHODS We present a clinical follow-up of 31 patients who were treated arthroscopically for type II SLAP lesions using a(More)
