We report a prospective analysis of clinical outcome in patients treated with medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction using an autologous semitendinosus graft. The technique includes superolateral portal arthroscopic assessment before and after graft placement to ensure correct graft tension and patellar tracking before fixation.(More)
INTRODUCTION The addition of an angiotensin II receptor blocker to calcium channel blocker-based antihypertensive therapy may be associated with enhanced efficacy and reduced risk of adverse events. METHODS This 8-week, open-label, single-arm trial evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of the combination of amlodipine and valsartan in patients not(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE For patients with moderate hypertension (grade 2, defined as systolic blood pressure [SBP] 160-179 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure [DBP] 100-109 mmHg), current guidelines recommend initial combination therapy and rapid dose-adjustment to achieve blood pressure goal. In this study we investigated the efficacy and tolerability of(More)
Only a minority of patients treated for hypertension achieve controlled blood pressure (BP) levels. Therapy with fixed-dose combinations of an angiotensinreceptor blocker (ARB) and low-dose hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is commonly prescribed but not always sufficient to achieve the target BP. The efficacy and safety of the fixed-dose combination of valsartan(More)
BACKGROUND The restoration of an adequate patellar thickness is a key to the successful outcome of knee arthroplasty. This study investigated the relationship between the thickness of the native patellar and medial-lateral patellar width using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS 75 MRI scans of young adults, with an average age of 27 (range 16-40)(More)
