Revision reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) introduces several diagnostic and technical challenges in comparison with primary ACL reconstruction. With the increasing numbers of original reconstructions combined with the continued expectation of high-level athletic participation, revision ACL reconstruction is likely to become more(More)
BACKGROUND A recent study has described radiographic landmarks for femoral insertion of the medial patellofemoral ligament. Clinical relevance and application of these landmarks for surgical reconstruction have yet to be determined. HYPOTHESIS Radiographic landmarks can be used to accurately determine the femoral insertion of the medial patellofemoral(More)
The functional outcomes of periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) and factors predicting outcome in the older patient with acetabular dysplasia are not well understood. We therefore retrospectively determined the functional outcome of 70 patients (87 hips) over age 40 treated with PAO in three institutions; we also determined whether preoperative factors,(More)
BACKGROUND Little work has been made regarding the use of radiographic landmarks in fibular collateral ligament reconstruction. Radiographic tools can be of use to the surgeon in posterolateral reconstruction as secondary checks in the setting of tissue and bony attrition. HYPOTHESIS Using standardized radiographic imaging, a zone for femoral tunnel(More)
BACKGROUND Graft survivorship, reinjury rates, and career length are poorly understood after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in the elite collegiate athlete. The purpose of this study was to examine the outcomes of ACL reconstruction in a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I athlete cohort. STUDY DESIGN Case series;(More)
BACKGROUND Bankart repair with multiple anchor holes concentrated in the anterior-inferior glenoid may contribute to glenoid weakening and potentially may induce glenoid failure. PURPOSE To compare the biomechanical strength of a Bankart repair construct that used 3 single-loaded suture anchors versus a repair construct that used 2 double-loaded suture(More)
BACKGROUND Periodic clinical and radiographic evaluation is commonly recommended by orthopaedic surgeons to monitor patients following total joint arthroplasty, yet the compliance with and efficacy of patient follow-up protocols have not been well defined. The purpose of this study was to evaluate patient compliance with early clinical follow-up after total(More)
BACKGROUND Access to orthopaedic care for pediatric patients has been shown in previous studies to be decreased for patients with Medicaid compared with those with private insurance. The relationship between type of insurance and access to care for adult patients with acute rotator cuff tears has not yet been examined. This study aimed to determine if type(More)
PURPOSE To investigate rates, trends, and complications for carpal tunnel release (CTR) related to fellowship training using the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Part II Database. METHODS We searched the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery database for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome who underwent either open carpal tunnel release (OCTR) or(More)
BACKGROUND After failure of nonoperative treatment, repair has long been the primary treatment option for symptomatic superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) lesions of the shoulder. There is growing evidence to support both biceps tenotomy and tenodesis as effective alternative treatments for SLAP lesions. HYPOTHESES For patients with isolated SLAP(More)
