BACKGROUND Although the use of the Internet to access health information has grown quickly, the emergence of quality controls for health information web sites has been considerably slower. The primary objective of this study was to assess the quality and content of Internet-based information for commonly encountered diagnoses within orthopaedic sports(More)
BACKGROUND Techniques for ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) reconstruction have evolved since its original description. HYPOTHESIS Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction using the ZipLoop for ulnar-sided fixation, as combined with the humeral docking technique supplemented with an interference screw, will restore valgus stability similar to that of the(More)
BACKGROUND The anterior cruciate ligament consists of 2 functional bundles, the anteromedial bundle and the posterolateral bundle. Single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is the current standard for the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament deficiency. However, a significant subset of patients continues to report residual symptoms of(More)
Anatomical studies have shown that the normal anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) consists of 2 distinct functional bundles: the anteromedial and posterolateral bundles. To date, no study has assessed the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearance of the anteromedial and posterolateral bundles. The purpose of this study was to measure the anteromedial and(More)
INTRODUCTION Traditional anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery has demonstrated good results, but there is still a subset of unsatisfactory outcomes. Trends in reconstruction technique have changed from bone-patella-tendon-bone to hamstring refixation, and the next step appears to be the double bundle concept. METHODS We examined six fresh-frozen(More)
Anatomical studies show that the native ACL consists of two distinct functional bundles, termed the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL) bundles. The utility of using routine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to distinguish the individual bundles of the ACL has not been evaluated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the intra- and inter-observer(More)
With the increasing number of double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions being performed, revision cases are expected. This report describes the first 3 cases of revision double-bundle ACL surgeries performed at our institution. In 3 athletes in whom the ACL was previously reconstructed with an anatomic double-bundle technique, new(More)
In traditional anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, there is a subset of patients complaining of knee instability, especially rotational instability, and athletes not able to return to their preinjury level of sports activity. Currently, controversy exists over the usefulness of the double bundle technique (DBT) in addressing these problems. In order(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) is Food and Drug Administration-approved for use in acute open tibial shaft fractures. Some surgeons, however, also use BMP-2 in an "off-label" application for other acute fractures and for nonunion care. This retrospective study was performed to assess radiographic outcomes of off-label uses(More)
