BACKGROUND During rotator cuff repair, biceps tendon lesions are frequently encountered. However, there is still controversy about optimal treatment for these lesions. PURPOSE To compare the results of tenotomy and suture anchor tenodesis prospectively. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2. METHODS From January 2006 to June 2007, 90(More)
The aims of this study were to quantify the angle and placement of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafted with a single incision ACL reconstruction technique using postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and to compare the results with those with a native ACL. Between February 1996 and May 2004, 96 consecutive patients, who had undergone(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate by second-look arthroscopy the clinical results of arthroscopic all-inside sutures with hook using 2 posteromedial portals for medial meniscus posterior horn (MMPH) tears in patients who underwent concurrent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. TYPE OF STUDY Case series. METHODS From May 1997 to June 2001, 78 knees(More)
Hamstring tendon using quadrupled semitendinosus and gracilis autografts is a well-established technique for ACL reconstruction. However, several methods have been used for tibial fixation of the tendon graft. The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical characteristics of quadrupled hamstring graft tibial fixation using three different(More)
BACKGROUND Some studies have shown that rotator cuff tendon (RCT) retears occur early after surgery and ultimate failure strength is reached at between 3 and 6 months. However, few clinical studies have been reported to support their theory. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the RCT integrity after repair showed any difference at 6 months(More)
Transection injury (complete radial tear, root tear) in the posterior horn of medial meniscus will lead to loss of hoop strain, extrusion of the meniscus and early degenerative changes. The posterior horn of medial meniscus is amenable to repair due to its good blood supply and repair is the procedure of choice for these injuries. In cases of transection of(More)
BACKGROUND Partial rotator cuff tears are being diagnosed more often because of high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Articular-side partial tears are much more common than bursal-side tears, and all-inside or PASTA repairs that preserve the bursal tissue have gained popularity. In contrast, there have been few reports about preserving the(More)
A silicon nanowire-FET (SiNAWI-FET) for high performance logic device with consideration of current direction effects and terabit non-volatile memory (NVM) device using an 8nm SiNAWI-NVM with oxide/nitride/oxide (ONO) and omega-gate structure is reported for the first time. N-and P-channel SiNAWI-FET showed the highest driving current on (110)/<110> crystal(More)
BACKGROUND One of the goals of rotator cuff repair is to restore the torn tendon to its original insertion anatomically. However, it is sometimes difficult to restore the entire footprint. PURPOSE This study was undertaken to evaluate the variables affecting this repair coverage and to discern the differences in retear rate and clinical results between(More)
BACKGROUND Tenotomy of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) has been reported to provide reliable pain relief and require little postoperative rehabilitation. Complications such as cosmetic deformity, decrease in elbow flexion strength, decrease in supination strength, and fatigue discomfort have been reported after tenotomy of the LHBT. PURPOSE To(More)
