PURPOSE Determining the magnitude of displacement in pediatric lateral humeral condyle fractures can be difficult. The purpose of this study was to (1) assess the effect of forearm rotation on true fracture displacement using a cadaver model and to (2) determine the accuracy of radiographic measurements of the fracture gap. METHODS A non-displaced(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical performance of three distal fibula fracture fixation implants in a matched pair cadaveric fibula model: (1) a 5-hole compression plate with lag screw, (2) a 5-hole locking plate with lag screw, and (3) the 6-hole tabbed-plate with locking screws. METHODS Three-dimensional motions between(More)
INTRODUCTION Periprosthetic bone loss may lead to major complications in total hip arthroplasty (THA), including loosening, migration, and even fracture. This study analysed the influence of femoral implant designs on periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) after THA. METHODS The results of all previous published studies reporting periprosthetic femoral(More)
Common surgical treatment of first tarsal-metatarsal arthritis is by first metatarsocuneiform joint arthrodesis. While crossed-screw and locking plate fixation are the most widely used methods, a novel construct was designed to alleviate soft tissue irritation while still providing stable fixation. Using anatomic first metatarsal and medial cuneiform(More)
OBJECTIVES We measured biomechanical stability in simulated supracondylar humeral fractures fixed with each of 6 pin configurations, 2 with associated medial comminution, and developed a technique for reproducible pin placement and divergence. METHODS A transverse supracondylar osteotomy was performed on 36 biomechanical humerus models. Of these, 24 (4(More)
BACKGROUND There is growing interest in suture-button devices for syndesmosis injury, which are intended to offer less rigid fixation than screw fixation. METHODS The fixation strength with 2 different suture-button devices, ZipTight and TightRope, were compared using 5 cadaveric leg pairs (n = 10). In an additional 5 pairs (n = 10), ZipTight was compared(More)
Recently, as an alternative to metal spinal fusion cages, 3D printed bioresorbable materials have been explored; however, the static and fatigue properties of these novel cages are not well known. Unfortunately, current ASTM testing standards used to determine these properties were designed prior to the advent of bioresorbable materials for cages.(More)

An accelerated sequential proximal femoral bone loss model was used to measure the initial stability of three noncemented femoral stem designs: fully porous-coated, proximally porous-coated, and dual-tapered, diaphyseal press-fit (N=18). Only dual-tapered, diaphyseal press-fit stems remained stable with as much as 105 mm of bone loss, with average cyclic(More)
