OBJECTIVES To determine whether a defined approach for debridement of open tibia fractures would result in no change in reoperation rate, but reduce the need for flap coverage. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Academic Level 1 trauma center. PATIENTS A total of 66 patients with 68 open diaphyseal tibia fractures were included. Patients under(More)
Ganglion cysts are lesions resulting from the myxoid degeneration of the connective tissue associated with joint capsules and tendon sheaths. Most common around the wrist joint, ganglion cysts may be found elsewhere in the body, including in and around the knee joint. Uncommonly, ganglion cysts can present intramuscularly. Previous reports document the(More)
A learning curve for returning to conventional total knee arthroplasty (TKA) after using computer-assisted (CAS) TKA has not yet been established. In this study, the postoperative mechanical axes of the first 30 consecutive CAS TKAs performed by a single surgeon were compared to his subsequent 120 conventionally performed TKAs. A "re-learning curve" of 30(More)
OBJECTIVES The suprapatellar approach for medullary nailing of the tibia is increasing. This requires intra-articular passage of instruments, which theoretically places the knee at risk for postoperative sepsis in the setting of open fracture. We hypothesized that the risk of knee sepsis is similar after suprapatellar or infrapatellar nailing of open tibia(More)
BACKGROUND Proximal hamstring tendinopathy is an uncommon but debilitating cause of posterior thigh pain in athletes subjected to repetitive eccentric hamstring contraction, such as runners. Minimal data exist evaluating treatment options for proximal hamstring tendinopathy. PURPOSE This retrospective study evaluates the effectiveness of fluoroscopically(More)
