Certain minimally displaced acetabular fracture patterns are amenable to treatment with computed tomography (CT) assisted percutaneous fixation using cannulated screws (Kahler DM, et al. Presented at AAOS Annual Meeting, Feb. 1996). Although the early results have shown promise in the treatment of transverse, anterior column, and anterior column/posterior(More)

A variety of fractures and fracture-dislocations occur about the base of the thumb. With the exception of the extra-articular fracture of the metacarpal base, most of these injuries are best treated surgically. Closed reduction with percutaneous fixation should generally be attempted, with open reduction being reserved for cases in which residual joint(More)
Heat treatment of the ears of knotted sutures markedly enhances knot security. Using coated polyester sutures commonly used in arthroscopic surgery, heat treatment of the knot ears allows secure knot construction to be achieved with a two throw granny (1 x 1) or square (1 = 1) knot. A heat source is being designed for secure knot construction in(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess anterior translation of the tibia using the Tibial Fixator Device (a mechanical leg stabilizer that controls tibial alignment) with the leg in three positions: neutral (N), internal rotation of 15° (IR), and external rotation of 15° (ER). Displacement was measured using a modified KT-1000 arthrometer. Eleven subjects(More)
