UNLABELLED Early radiographic detection of femoroacetabular impingement might prevent initiation and progression of osteoarthritis. The structural abnormality in femoral-induced femoroacetabular impingement (cam type) is frequently asphericity at the anterosuperior head/neck contour. To determine which of six radiographic projections (anteroposterior, Dunn,(More)
Acetabular retroversion has been proposed to contribute to the development of osteoarthritis of the hip. For the diagnosis of this condition, conventional AP pelvic radiographs may represent a reliable, easily available diagnostic modality as they can be obtained with a reproducible technique allowing the anterior and posterior acetabular rims to be visible(More)
In 13 patients, the development of supraspinatus muscle atrophy and fatty infiltration after rotator cuff tendon repair was quantified prospectively via magnetic resonance imaging. Intraoperative electrical nerve stimulation at repair showed that the maximal supraspinatus tension (up to 200 N) strongly correlated with the anatomic cross-sectional muscle(More)
HYPOTHESIS Chronic rotator cuff tears are associated with irreversible architectural muscle changes and a high rate of repair failure. The changes observed in man and their irreversibility with a single stage repair can be reproduced in sheep. It was the purpose of this experiment to test the hypothesis that slow, continuous elongation of a retracted(More)
Sulcus-deepening trochleoplasty restores the trochlear groove in patients with patellofemoral instability and underlying trochlear dysplasia. There are types of dysplasia both with (B and D) and without (A and C) a supratrochlear spur. The aim of this study was to identify influencing factors for the clinical outcome following trochleoplasty. Forty-four(More)
BACKGROUND Retraction, atrophy and fatty infiltration are signs subsequent to chronic rotator cuff tendon tears. They are associated with an increased pennation angle and a shortening of the muscle fibers in series. These deleterious changes of the muscular architecture are not reversible with current repair techniques and are the main factors for failed(More)
Rotator cuff tendon repair may fail for various reasons. Although the role of repair techniques and of the musculotendinous unit has been studied, there is little information on the quality of the bone to which the tendon is to be repaired. Therefore, 14 cadaveric humeral heads, 7 specimens without and 7 with a full-thickness rotator cuff tendon tear, were(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the accuracy of ultrasonography (US) in depicting fatty atrophy of the supraspinatus (SSP) and infraspinatus (ISP) muscles, with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval and informed consent were obtained. SSP and ISP muscles of 65 consecutive(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to comprehensively compare the mechanical properties of 4 types of braided polyblend sutures with widely used braided polyester and monofilament polydioxanone sutures. METHODS Polyblend polyethylene sutures (FiberWire [Arthrex, Naples, FL], Herculine [Linvatec, Largo, FL], Orthocord [DePuy Mitek, Raynham, MA], and(More)
Muscle atrophy is a known consequence of muscle disuse, muscle denervation and tendon tear. Whereas after nerve injury muscle atrophies in the denervated area, the distribution of muscle atrophy following tear of its tendon is not known. Standardized MRI scans of 64 consecutive, painful shoulders were evaluated for supraspinatus tendon tearing, myotendinous(More)
