INTRODUCTION Since the recent descriptions of the anterolateral ligament (ALL), the role played by the anterolateral peripheral structures in the rotational control of the knee is again being debated. The objective of this study was to identify the structures during internal tibial rotation and then to define their anatomical characteristics. We(More)
BACKGROUND Rotational control of the knee is crucial for knee stability. The anterolateral ligament (ALL) has been identified as a potentially important structure involved in rotational control of the knee. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS The purpose of this study was to determine, utilizing a navigation system, the involvement of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL),(More)
PURPOSE To measure the variations in length during flexion and internal tibial rotation of the 3 different femoral insertions of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) while maintaining a fixed tibia insertion. METHODS Twelve fresh-frozen cadaver knees were analyzed using a navigation system. Maximal distance variations of the 3 different anatomic femoral(More)
BACKGROUND Fractures of the proximal ulna are rare and usually managed surgically. Strong fixation of the harware is essential to obtain good outcomes. We report our experience with pre-contoured locking plate fixation of complex olecranon fractures and present a critical appraisal of the outcomes. HYPOTHESIS Pre-contoured locking plates provide good(More)
BACKGROUND The long-term outcomes of rotator cuff repair are unclear. Recurrent tears are common, although their reported frequency varies depending on the type and interpretation challenges of the imaging method used. The primary objective of this study was to assess the intra- and inter-observer reproducibility of the MRI assessment of rotator cuff repair(More)
