Brachial plexus injury is an underestimated complication from anterior dislocation of the shoulder. To our knowledge, there is limited information available about the factors that influence neurological recovery of this injury. We reviewed 15 upper extremities in 14 patients with brachial plexus injuries caused by anterior shoulder dislocation. Two-thirds(More)
The location of lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) in relation to the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the iliac crest was investigated in 96 embalmed cadaveric specimens. Fifty-six nerves (58.3%) passed medial to the ASIS. Twenty-two nerves (22.9%) passed at the ASIS. Eighteen nerves (18.8%) passed lateral to the ASIS. The LFCN is usually(More)
OBJECTIVE Many randomized clinical trials demonstrated that 4-strand hamstring tendon grafts have comparable results both subjectively and objectively with the patellar tendon grafts. The authors hypothesized that the increment of hamstring tendons strength with 6-strand graft could improve the knee stability compared to the result from using the gold(More)
PURPOSE Many studies comparing the morphology of native radial head with the prosthesis have been published. However, there is limited information regarding the postoperative alignment of the articular surface following the radial head replacement. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the alteration of the end-plane angle in the modular radial head(More)
Flexor tendon injury is a potential complication after volar plating of distal radius fracture. This article reports a case of flexor pollicis longus tendon rupture after corrective osteotomy of a distal radius malunion with volar fixed-angle plating. Thirty-three cases of flexor tendon injuries after fixed-angle volar plating and eleven cases of flexor(More)
A massive rotator cuff tear in association with acute traumatic posterior glenohumeral dislocation is rare. To our knowledge, only four documented cases have been reported in the literature. We present two additional cases of such injury secondary to the traffic accident. The first patient had an unsuccessful closed reduction due to the posterior(More)
Giant cell tumor of the bones occurring in the first metacarpals frequently requires entire metacarpal resection due to the aggressive nature and high rate of recurrence. Bone reconstruction can be performed with autogenous bone grafts. Here we describe a new technique of reconstruction using a patient-matched three-dimensional printed titanium first(More)
Triggering of extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon is an uncommon phenomenon with a few reports in the previous literature. Because of its rarity, the recommendations for management are sparse. We report a case of triggering EPL tendon secondary to the tendon nodule in a 42-year-old woman treated with the surgical decompression. The intraoperative(More)
Triggering in association with movements of the wrist or "true trigger wrist" due to the extensor tendon is rare. There are only few case reports in literature, but none were associated with the acute partial tendon rupture. We present a case of true trigger wrist originating from partial rupture of extensor carpi radialis brevis tendon (ECRB). In contrast(More)
