PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the benefits of computer navigation on tunnel placement during anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. METHODS A prospective, randomized, controlled study comparing computer navigation with manual operation was performed between December 2003 and April 2004. We assigned 20 patients to the computer(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case-control observational study. OBJECTIVE Determination of dimensional changes in the lumbar spines of athletes between supine and stand-up position in MRI, concerning the lordosis, spinal canal cross-sectional area (SCCA), dural sac cross-sectional area (DSCA), sagittal dural sac diameter (SDSD), the lateral recess and the neural foramina.(More)
BACKGROUND Next to graft fixation, correct positioning of the tibial and femoral tunnel is a deciding factor for the clinical result of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery. Computer-assisted navigation has been proposed as a method to improve tunnel positioning. PURPOSE To examine the differences in tibial tunnel placement between cruciate(More)
Patellofemoral instability is influenced by ligamentous, boney and neuromuscular factors. The most important variables are trochlea geometry, medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), patella height, tibial tuberosity–trochlea groove distance (TT–TG) and the extensor muscles. Treatment is complicated by these multifactorial conditions. This prospective study(More)
Medial transfer of the tibial tubercle has become a standard procedure in cases of patella instability caused by an increased tuberositas tibae-trochlear groove (TT-TG) distance. However, the TT-TG distance has always been assessed as an absolute value without taking individual joint size into consideration. It was assumed that the pathological influence of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the presupposed preventive residual mechanical effectiveness of the widespread use of adhesive elastic ankle tape after a nonlaboratory, realistic soccer-specific outfield intervention reflecting a soccer halftime. DESIGN A prospective nonrandomized test-retest design was used. SETTING Laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Seventeen(More)
Ziel der prospektiven Therapiestudie war es, die postoperativen Ergebnisse nach primärer oder frühsekundärer arthroskopischer Kapsel-Labrum-Refixation bei traumatischer anteriorer Schultererstluxation zu überprüfen. Die Patienten zwischen 16 und 30 Jahren wurden innerhalb von 2 Wochen oder in der 7. bis 12. Woche arthroskopisch stabilisiert und(More)
Rotational alignment of prosthetic components after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is predominantly monitored with computer tomography (CT), for example by relating the anatomical transepicondylar axis (a-TEA) of the native femur to the posterior bicondylar axis of the prosthetic component (PBCA). The purpose of the present study was to portray a reliable,(More)
In recalcitrant epicondylitis innumerable operative techniques have been published, nevertheless a certain percentage of patients remains symptomatic after operative treatment. We developed an individual, systematic diagnostic pathway including arthroscopic assessment of elbow stability to identify the optimal and respectively less invasive therapy. We so(More)
Eine vermehrte Ansammlung von interstitieller Flüssigkeit im Knochen wird als Knochenmarködem (KMÖ) bezeichnet. Der exakte Pathomechanismus bleibt unklar. Das KMÖ ist unspezifisch und kann als Begleitreaktion bei diversen Erkrankungen und Pathologien sowie als eigene Entität auftreten. Es wird eine Literaturübersicht gegeben und die aktuelle Leitlinie(More)
