PURPOSE Arthroscopic repair of the lateral ligament complex with suture anchors is increasingly used to treat chronic ankle instability (CAI). Our aims are (1) to analyze and evaluate the literature on arthroscopic suture anchor repair of the anterior talofibular ligament and (2) to conduct a systematic review of the clinical evidence on the reported(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the effectiveness of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with preserving the remnant ACL by allograft ligament. METHODS Between January and July in 2008, 97 patients underwent ACL reconstruction with the allograft ligament. On the basis of the ACL's condition, patients were divided into 2 groups. In the trial group(More)
PURPOSE The aims of our study were to assess effects of the extent of capsular release and to define the benefit of additional release of the inferior glenohumeral ligament (IGHL) from inferior to posterior in frozen shoulder. METHODS Seventy-four consecutive patients with refractory frozen shoulder underwent arthroscopic capsular release and were divided(More)
To compare the load at failure and stiffness associated with three surgical techniques for distal Achilles tendon reconstruction (AT). Nine matched pairs of fresh-frozen human cadaveric ATs were divided into three groups. Distal AT reconstruction was performed using suture anchors or one of two lengths of tendon overlap (10 or 5 mm). Each tendon was loaded(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperatively, signal changes of the reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images commonly occurs, which may be a cause for concern. The signal intensity changes are usually expressed by signal/noise quotient (SNQ) value, representing graft maturity. To date, little is known about the factors(More)
To assess and compare the clinical and MRI outcomes of patients with talus osteochondral defect (OCD) and patients without OCD in a cohort with chronic lateral ankle instability. All patients who underwent open or arthroscopic anterior talofibular ligament repair of the lateral ligament complex by a single surgeon were included in this study. Ankle(More)
This study is to compare the treatment efficacy between nano-silver and silver sulfadiazine for the degree II burn wound. We searched the Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMbase, Chinese BioMedical Literature database (CBM), Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) and VIP database from inception to November 2016. The Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs)(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative passive motion is the most widely accepted rehabilitation protocol after rotator cuff repair; however, a rotator cuff retear remains a frequent surgical complication. Clinical outcomes indicate that early passive motion is harmless to rotator cuff healing, but no laboratory evidence supports this proposition. HYPOTHESES (1)(More)
An electro-hydraulic parallel brake scheme based on Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is proposed. Taking advantage of the hydraulic control unit of ABS, the regenerative brake is preferentially adopted as far as possible on the premise of braking safety. Then, a detailed brake system model including ABS unit is built using the joint simulation technology of(More)
To determine whether magnetic resonance image (MRI)-based graft maturity predicts clinical and functional scores during the first year after ACL reconstruction. Patients with unilateral ACL reconstruction were prospectively invited to participate in this study, and they were examined using a 3.0-T MRI scan at 3, 6, and 12 months after the operation.(More)
