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)
BACKGROUND Chlamydia pneumoniae is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), although its causal role is uncertain. A small preliminary study reported a >50% reduction in ischemic events by azithromycin, an antibiotic effective against C pneumoniae, in seropositive CAD patients. We tested this prospectively in a larger, randomized, double-blind study.(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the femoral and tibial fixation sites that would result in the most isometric MCL reconstruction technique. Seven cadaveric knees were used in this study. A navigation system was utilized to determine graft isometry continuously from 0 masculine to 90 masculine. Five points on the medial side of the femur and four(More)
O ver the history of the National Basketball Association (NBA), the nature of the game has undergone significant changes. Basketball was originally conceived as a noncontact sport, and the rules of the game were based on the idea that " if the offense did not have the opportunity to run with the ball, there would be no necessity for tackling and we would(More)
To search for unique mutations in the apolipoprotein B (apoB) gene that disrupt the binding of LDL to its receptor and cause hypercholesterolemia, we examined more than 800 patients with high LDL cholesterol levels and/or coronary artery disease (CAD). Analysis of patient DNA by single-strand conformation polymorphism and allele-specific oligonucleotide(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate knee proprioception in patients with isolated unilateral posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries. Eighteen subjects with isolated PCL tears were studied 1-234 months after injury. The threshold to detect passive motion (TTDPM) was used to evaluate kinesthesia and the ability to passively reproduce passive positioning(More)
Gender differences in hip and core strength and range of motion may contribute to the gender based variance in injury risk. This study was designed to test the primary hypothesis that hip and core strength, flexibility and lower extremity dynamic alignment differ in male and female soccer athletes. Ninety-eight collegiate soccer players (54 male, 44 female)(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)
