BACKGROUND This prospective, randomized study was conducted to compare clinical outcomes of the modified Broström procedure using suture anchor or transosseous suture technique for chronic ankle instability. METHODS Forty patients were followed for more than 2 years after modified Broström procedure. Twenty procedures using a suture anchor and 20(More)
STUDY DESIGN a retrospective study of surgically managed patients. OBJECTIVE to evaluate the results of posterior stabilization of thoracolumbar fracture using nonfusion method followed by the removal of metal implants within an appropriate period. Changes in the sagittal alignment and the restoration of segmental motion were also investigated. SUMMARY(More)
The present prospective, randomized study was conducted to compare the clinical outcomes of the modified Brostrom procedure using single and double suture anchors for chronic lateral ankle instability. A total of 50 patients were followed up for more than 2 years after undergoing the modified Brostrom procedure. Of the 50 procedures, 25 each were performed(More)
BACKGROUND This study examined the clinical results of surgical treatment using a mini-open muscle resection procedure under local anesthesia for intractable lateral or medial epicondylitis. METHODS Forty two elbows (41 patients) were treated surgically for lateral or medial epicondylitis. The indication for surgery was refractory pain after six months of(More)
A new method of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy for horizontal tear of discoid lateral meniscus was devised to preserve as much meniscal tissue as possible. To evaluate the clinical result of this method for horizontal tear of discoid lateral meniscus, 31 knees (30 patients) were reviewed at an average follow-up of 35 months (range 14-48 months).(More)
The present prospective study was conducted to evaluate the clinical outcomes of the new ligament reattachment procedure for chronic lateral ankle instability in high-demand athletes. A total of 24 athletes <30 years old were followed for >2 years after undergoing the modified Brostrom procedure using the suture bridge technique. The clinical evaluation(More)
Scapular fractures are uncommon and among them acromial fractures are even more uncommon. Because the vast majority of acromial fractures are either non-displaced or minimally displaced, symptomatic and nonoperative management was performed. We describe a case of avulsion fracture of the acromial physis displaced by acromioclavicular ligament treated with(More)
