BACKGROUND Although the results of the Latarjet procedure have been reported previously, there is little literature regarding the early complications of this procedure. The purpose of this study was to report our experience with the Latarjet procedure for glenohumeral instability and to highlight the initial complications that may occur following this(More)
BACKGROUND Tears of the posterior root of the medial meniscus are becoming increasingly recognized. They can cause rapidly progressive arthritis, yet their biomechanical effects are not understood. The goal of this study was to determine the effects of posterior root tears of the medial meniscus and their repairs on tibiofemoral joint contact pressure and(More)
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remains one of the most successful procedures in orthopaedic surgery. Complications certainly exist and are often related to failure of knee ligament balance. This asymmetry subsequently leads to component mal-alignment and loosening often secondary to deviation of the lower extremity mechanical axis. Understanding knee(More)
PURPOSE To determine the most common rupture patterns of previously reconstructed DB-ACL cases, seen at the time of revision surgery, and to determine the influence of age, gender, time between the initial ACL reconstruction and re-injury, tunnel angle and etiology of failure. METHODS Forty patients who presented for revision surgery after previous(More)
BACKGROUND Studies suggest that hip arthroplasty procedures performed in specialty hospitals or by physicians in practices with a high surgical volume are associated with a decreased rate of adverse outcomes related to component malpositioning. Little is known, however, about the influence of imageless computer navigation systems on the procedural(More)
INTRODUCTION Hills-Sachs lesions are commonly associated with anterior shoulder dislocations and can be a source of recurrent instability. Studies have shown that, even after soft tissue repair of a Bankart lesion, there is still a risk for redislocation in a patient with significant bony defects. The purpose of this study is to ascertain whether balloon(More)
BACKGROUND Scapulothoracic fusion (STF) may be an option to alleviate pain and restore function. The purpose of this study is to report the clinical outcome of patients who underwent STF for the treatment of painful scapular winging. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 1999 through 2008, 10 patients (12 shoulders) underwent an STF for painful winging of the(More)
PURPOSES The number of revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgeries performed annually continues to rise. The purpose of this study was to determine the most common rupture pattern in ACL revision cases after previous single-bundle reconstruction. The second aim was to determine the relationship between rupture pattern and patient-specific factors(More)
