BACKGROUND There is little information available on the material properties of hypothermically stored allograft specimens used to repair osteochondral defects. PURPOSE To analyze the effect of hypothermic storage on the material properties of fresh knee specimens over a 60-day interval. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Twelve sheep(More)
UNLABELLED Cytomegalovirus infection causing symptomatic enteritis is most usually associated with immunosuppressed transplant patients or patients positive for human immunodeficiency virus. Most reports studying this illness are small and do not clearly define the risk factors or mortality rates. METHODS The present study retrospectively reviewed the(More)
OBJECTIVES To characterize multiligamentous knee injury patterns and describe associated morbidities. DESIGN Retrospective. SETTING Level I trauma center. PATIENTS One hundred two patients (106 knees) with multiligamentous knee injuries and/or dislocations from 2000 through 2008. Subgroup of 82 knees with appropriate magnetic resonance images(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the risk of injury to the suprascapular nerve during suture anchor placement in the glenoid when using an anterosuperior portal versus a rotator interval portal. METHODS Ten bilateral fresh human cadaveric shoulders were randomized to anchor placement through the anterosuperior portal on one shoulder and(More)
partment pressures that exceed capillary perfusion, causing ischemia and edema within the compartment. This has been well characterized in the lower leg following excessive muscle strain, tibia fracture, or other blunt trauma and in the forearm following blunt trauma. There are few reports of dorsal compartment syndrome of the upper arm. A literature review(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to establish whether suture anchor capsulorrhaphy (SAC) is biomechanically superior to suture capsulorrhaphy (SC) in the management of recurrent anterior shoulder instability without a labral avulsion. METHODS Twelve matched pairs of shoulders were randomized to either SC or SAC. Specimens were mounted in 60° of(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the risk of glenoid perforation during SLAP repair for suture anchors placed through an anterolateral portal versus a posterolateral portal of Wilmington. METHODS Ten bilateral cadaveric shoulders were randomized to suture anchor placement through an anterolateral portal on one shoulder and a posterolateral(More)
