Cerclage cables, frequently used in the management of fractures and osteotomies, are associated with a high failure rate and significant loosening during surgery. This study compared the capacity to maintain tension of different types of orthopaedic cable systems. Multifilament Cobalt-Chrome (CoCr) cables with four different crimp/clamp devices (DePuy,(More)
BACKGROUND This paper aims to determine the strongest fixation method for split type greater tuberosity fractures of the proximal humerus by testing and comparing three fixation methods: a tension band with No. 2 wire suture, a double-row suture bridge with suture anchors, and a manually contoured calcaneal locking plate. METHODS Each method was tested on(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study is to compare the pull-through strength of transosseous braided tape suture with wire suture in proximal humeri bones (greater tuberosity). METHODS A biomechanical study on eight cadaveric human specimens where two transosseous sutures were randomly applied on each specimen (anterior and posterior).(More)
INTRODUCTION The optimal treatment for avulsion-type greater tuberosity fractures is yet to be determined. Three fixation methods are tested: tension band with #2 wire suture (TB), double-row suture bridge with anchors (DR), and simple transosseous fixation with braided tape (BT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four porcine proximal humeri were randomised(More)
PURPOSE The Proximal Ulna Dorsal Angulation (PUDA) is part of the proximal ulna's normal anatomy. The importance of restoring ulnar anatomy characteristics precisely after olecranon fracture is not known, however, failure to recreate the PUDA after surgery may result in poorer functional outcomes. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of(More)
BACKGROUND Important rotator cuff repair failure rates have prompted this study of the techniques and materials used in order to optimize clinical results. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES Is the reconstruction of the rotator cuff biomechanically stronger when using: 1) transosseous with 2 mm braided tape suture (TOT), 2) transosseous with multi-strand No. 2 sutures(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrent glenohumeral anterior instability (RGAI) frequently induces combined glenoid and Hill-Sachs bone lesions and is a risk factor for soft tissue repair failure. This cohort study describes a simple preoperative quantification method for bone loss, the Clock method, the first that combines glenoid and humeral lesions. METHODS Computed(More)
BACKGROUND Although recurrent anterior shoulder instability (RASI) is a common condition in young patients, no studies to date have measured the 3-dimensional (3D) locked position of the glenohumeral joint during an anterior dislocation. Therefore, our goal was to estimate it with 3D computed tomography (CT) scans. METHODS Patients in this prospective(More)
BACKGROUND This study biomechanically compares two methods of supraspinatus repair: single row transosseous braided-tape (BT) and suture bridge transosseous equivalent (SBTE) with 2 medial anchors and 2 lateral anchors. The purpose is to test the hypothesis that BT provides superior or equal biomechanical strength compared to SBTE. METHODS Nine pairs of(More)
BACKGROUND Greater trochanter fractures or osteotomies fixed with lateral plates still present high rates of complications. Unblocked greater trochanter anterior movement during hip extension might be a possible cause of failure. This study aimed to determine, under stair climbing conditions, the biomechanical behaviour of a greater trochanter fragment and(More)
