Background: There is a paucity of data concerning the morphological dimensions of the distal part of the femur, the proximal part of the tibia, and the patella. The objective of this study was toExpand
The Nonarthritic Hip Score: Reliable and Validated
The purpose of the current study was to assess the validity, internal consistency, and reproducibility of a short, self-administered hip score designed for use in younger patients with higher demandsExpand
The Role of Labral Lesions to Development of Early Degenerative Hip Disease
The current authors examined the hypothesis that labral lesions contribute to early degenerative hip disease. Between 1993 and 1999, 436 consecutive hip arthroscopies were done by the senior author.Expand
Anatomy, pathologic features, and treatment of acetabular labral tears.
There is an evolving body of knowledge regarding the acetabular labrum. Labral tears are most frequently anterior and often are associated with sudden twisting or pivoting motions. High clinicalExpand
The Development and validation of a self-administered quality-of-life outcome measure for young, active patients with symptomatic hip disease: the International Hip Outcome Tool (iHOT-33).
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to develop a self-administered evaluative tool to measure health-related quality of life in young, active patients with hip disorders. METHODS This outcomeExpand
Total hip replacement in patients younger than thirty years old. A five-year follow-up study.
Classification of femoral abnormalities in total hip arthroplasty.
Bony abnormalities of the femur can significantly complicate total hip arthroplasty both for the primary and revision operations. No standard nomenclature exists for the description of these femoralExpand
Femoral component loosening using contemporary techniques of femoral cement fixation.
A radiographic study was done of 171 total hip replacements that had been followed for an average of 3.3 years (range, two to five years). The study was performed to assess the incidence of looseningExpand
THE 2007 FRANK STINCHFIELD AWARD: The Biomechanics of the Hip Labrum and the Stability of the Hip
We explored the mechanical factors leading to the formation of labral tears and the effect of these lesions on hip kinematics at the extremes of joint motion. Using a 3D motion analysis system, theExpand
What Factors Influence Long-term Survivorship After Hip Arthroscopy?
BackgroundHip arthroscopy is an evolving procedure. One small study suggested that a low modified Harris hip score and arthritis at the time of surgery were predictors of poorExpand
