Ischiofemoral impingement (IFI) is an uncommon source of hip pain recently described in the non-surgical hip, associated with decreased space between the lesser trochanter and the ischium. There are no reports in the English literature of surgical treatment of this problem. We describe a case of IFI in a 19-year-old female who failed conservative management(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of temperature or 0.25% bupivacaine treatment in combination with supraphysiologic temperatures on chondrocyte viability. METHODS Bovine articular chondrocytes in suspension culture were treated with phosphate-buffered saline solution at 20°C, 37°C, 40°C, 42°C, 45°C, 47°C, and 50°C for 15, 30,(More)
Aneurysm sac expansion following endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is typically associated with endoleaks that can be readily diagnosed on computed tomographic angiography (CTA), ultrasound, or catheter-directed arteriography. Sac hygromas are a cause of sac expansion without apparent endoleak and are presumed to be a result of(More)
Successful treatment of the anterior cruciate ligament tear in the young, active population can be reliably achieved with an arthroscopic bone-patellar tendon-bone (BTB) autograft reconstruction. Although some contraindications exist, the BTB autograft has been proven to provide for a durable, stable, and highly functional knee. Complications associated(More)
Postarthroscopic glenohumeral chondrolysis is a devastating, poorly understood, and relatively rare complication. True chondrolysis involves the dissolution of articular cartilage, including the matrix and cellular elements, leading to premature and irreversible articular cartilage loss. Several factors have been implicated in this phenomenon; however, to(More)
Arthroscopic stabilization of primary, recurrent anterior shoulder instability has become the procedure of choice with infrequent exceptions. Failures of stabilization can and do occur. This is a Level IV retrospective analysis of arthroscopic revision Bankart surgery performed on 15 non-consecutive patients over a 4-year period with an average 22-month(More)
The diagnosis and management of an active patient with biceps disease can be challenging for the treating physician. A careful review of the function, anatomy, and pathology of biceps in conjunction with a thorough, knowledgeable history and physical examination can yield a working diagnosis in this challenging patient population. The physician must also be(More)
The treatment of articular-sided partial rotator cuff tears remains a challenge to the treating orthopaedic surgeon. Treatment algorithms have included nonoperative management, debridement alone, and debridement and subacromial decompression, as well as articular-sided rotator cuff repair and completion of the tear on the bursal side followed by a(More)
It is essential to determine the functional goals of the patient during the workup and treatment planning stages of neuromuscular disorders involving the foot and ankle. Accurate diagnosis, and informed discussion of treatment options, must be in the context of the patient's disease, cognition, comorbidities, functional attributes, and family environment. A(More)
