Effect of Gender and Maturity on Quadriceps-to-Hamstring Strength Ratio and Anterior Cruciate Ligament Laxity
Background Exercise programs have been introduced to reduce the ACL injury risk in female athletes. The most effective age at which to start these programs is not known. Hypothesis Age and genderExpand

Biomechanical Evaluation of a New Ulnar Collateral Ligament Reconstruction Technique with Interference Screw Fixation *
Background Techniques for ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction have evolved. Hypothesis Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction with interference screw fixation restores elbow kinematics andExpand

Hamstrings and iliotibial band forces affect knee kinematics and contact pattern
Many clinical studies have emphasized the role of the hamstrings and the iliotibial band on knee mechanics, although few biomechanical studies have investigated it. This study therefore examined twoExpand

Part II: Biomechanical assessment for a footprint-restoring transosseous-equivalent rotator cuff repair technique compared with a double-row repair technique.
We hypothesized that a transosseous-equivalent repair would demonstrate improved tensile strength and gap formation between the tendon and tuberosity when compared with a double-row technique. In 6Expand

Mechanical Properties of Soft Tissue Femoral Fixation Devices for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
Purpose To evaluate femoral soft tissue fixation for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Hypothesis Femoral fixation devices have different ultimate strengths and slippage under cyclicExpand

Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for cuff tear arthropathy: the clinical effect of deltoid lengthening and center of rotation medialization.
BACKGROUND Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) for cuff tear arthropathy improves shoulder function and reduces pain. Implant position and soft tissue balancing are important factors toExpand

Evaluation and Management of Hamstring Injuries
Muscle injuries are the most common injuries in sports, with hamstring injuries accounting for 29% of all injuries in athletes. These injuries lead to prolonged impairment and have a reinjury risk ofExpand

"Transosseous-equivalent" rotator cuff repair technique.
In order to optimize healing biology at a repaired rotator cuff footprint, we have developed a "transosseous-equivalent" rotator cuff repair that can be performed arthroscopically. What theExpand

Total shoulder replacement compared with humeral head replacement for the treatment of primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis: a systematic review.
The optimal choice for the treatment of end-stage primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis remains controversial, with alternatives including total shoulder replacement (TSR) and humeral head replacementExpand
