BACKGROUND Conventional reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is associated with a 15% failure rate. Computer-assisted navigation systems (CANS) have been developed to improve the accuracy of tunnel positioning. HYPOTHESIS The use of a CANS for ACL reconstruction decreases the rate of failure, defined as IKDC grade C or D, compared to(More)
Background: Cerebral perfusion during carotid cross-clamping depends on collateral function of the circle of Willis. The aim of this study was to determine the value of 3D Phase-Contrast (3D PC) MR angiography in predicting pre-operatively the need of shunting. Methods: 3D PC MR angiography were performed in 121 patients before carotid endarterectomy under(More)
INTRODUCTION There is increasing interest in using hip arthroscopy for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). However, the distraction is typically done with a traction table, which can lead to complications. Our working hypothesis was that a hip-specific distractor could be used to perform arthroscopic treatment of FAI without the(More)
