BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of an arthroscopic transglenoid suture-stabilization procedure in athletically active patients who had recurrent, unilateral, unidirectional anterior dislocations of the shoulder and an isolated anterior detachment of the glenoid labrum. METHODS Forty-one patients who had unilateral,(More)
Early diagnosis of malaria followed by appropriate treatment can help reduce related morbidity and mortality as well as interrupt transmission. Previous studies of household responses to malaria have tended to focus on endemic areas where the burden of this disease is greatest. With the apparent increasing frequency of epidemics in African highlands, a(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to further delineate the outcome of arthroscopically assisted anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in 125 patients who had previously been followed for two to five years. One of the original 125 patients was excluded from the present study because of insufficient follow-up, and an additional group of 101(More)
One hundred and twenty-seven patients who had a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament agreed to participate in a prospective, randomized study of three arthroscopically assisted reconstruction techniques. One hundred and twenty-five patients (125 reconstructions) were evaluated after a mean duration of follow-up of forty-two months (range, two to five(More)
A prospective, randomized study was performed to compare the results of arthroscopic lateral retinacular release (Group I) with those of open lateral retinacular lengthening (Group II). The study included eighty-six patients (eighty-six knees) who had had pain in the anterior peripatellar aspect of the knee and lateral patellar tilting (rotational(More)
BACKGROUND Revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction requires flexibility and variability in treatment options. This study analyzed the functional outcomes and graft stability of 48 consecutive revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions using previously unharvested ipsilateral autografts. HYPOTHESIS Using previously unharvested(More)
The postoperative radiographs of 48 patients who underwent posterolateral in situ fusion for spondylolysis and Grade 1 or less spondylolisthesis over an 11-year period showed healing of the pars defects in 90% of the cases. The patients who showed healing had an average preoperative duration of symptoms of 17 months (mean, 12 months). The five patients(More)
Difficulty is frequently encountered in separating the rotator cuff tendons, particularly the subscapularis tendon, from the underlying and often adherent capsule. A safe and quick method of dissecting the tendon from the capsule using a Cobb elevator has proven effective without causing capsular penetration in well over 100 consecutive primary shoulder(More)
A retrospective review was undertaken of 16 adolescent patients (20 feet) with tarsal coalitions. All patients were active in sports and were seen in the Sports Medicine Clinic. Ages ranged from 9 to 17 years (average, 13 years). Failing conservative therapy, 18 feet had resection of the tarsal bar; 1 patient (2 feet) had bilateral extraarticular subtalar(More)
