STUDY DESIGN This retrospective, questionnaire-based investigation evaluated iliac crest bone graft (ICBG) site morbidity in patients having undergone a single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedure performed by a single surgeon (T.J.A.). OBJECTIVE To evaluate acute and chronic problems associated with anterior ICBG donation,(More)
This paper presents a rapid, highly-sensitive, and low-cost method of endotoxin quantification based on the use of stress-responsive magnetoelastic sensors, that monitor the gel formation (viscosity change) of the Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) assay in response to endotoxin. Ribbon-like magnetoelastic sensors, 12.7 mm x 6 mm x 28 microm, were immersed in(More)
BACKGROUND Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) reconstructions are relatively common among professional pitchers in Major League Baseball (MLB). To the authors' knowledge, there has not been a study specifically analyzing pitching velocity after UCL surgery. These measurements were examined in a cohort of MLB pitchers before and after UCL reconstruction. (More)
Hamstring injuries continue to be very common for both elite and amateur athletes. Given their high recurrence rate, the ability to treat these injuries effectively is critical to helping athletes return to their previous level of activity without putting them at risk for future injury. Most hamstring strains can be treated with initial pain control and a(More)
Segond fractures, or avulsion fractures of the proximal lateral tibial plateau, have been well documented and studied since their original description in 1878. Segond fractures have a widely recognized pathognomonic association with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and often prompt orthopedic surgeons to consider reconstruction following(More)
PURPOSE To compare the most commonly used portals with a novel, lateral transmuscular portal for the treatment of anterior and posterior SLAP lesions. METHODS Six paired cadaveric shoulders underwent arthroscopy to assess 3 different instrumentation portals: the anterior-superior lateral (AL) portal, the Neviaser (N) portal, and the Rothman-lateral (RL)(More)
The tish rat is a neurological mutant exhibiting bilateral cortical heterotopia similar to those found in certain epileptic patients. Previous work has shown that thalamocortical fibers originating in the ventroposteromedial nucleus, which in normal animals segregate as 'barrel' representations for individual whiskers, terminate in both normotopic and(More)
Orthopaedic surgeons have reported increased neurologic complications with the employment of next-generation tibial nail fixation with variable proximal and distal locking options. However, vascular injury due to oblique screw placement has not been documented. We describe a case in which a medial-to-lateral oblique locking screw led to significant vascular(More)
INTRODUCTION The optimal surgical technique for a distal biceps tendon rupture repair still remains controversial. Current biomechanical evidence shows Endobutton fixation to have the highest load-to-failure testing, but clinical results of this are limited. The purpose of this study was to compare patient-oriented functional outcome between a modified(More)
Arthroscopy has always been focused on its roots-providing practical, clinically relevant information for the practicing arthroscopist. In the digital age, there is a need for publication platforms dedicated to multimedia presentations, hence the birth of Arthroscopy Techniques, Arthroscopy's online video companion. With over 700 videos, our library is(More)
