To determine collagen meniscus implant (CMI) efficacy for improving patient function, symptoms, and activity level. Study methodologies, rehabilitation, and return to sports guidelines were also reviewed. MedLine, EMBASE, CINAHL, Life Science Citations, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases were searched from January 1995–May 2011(More)
PURPOSE To define a neurovascular safety zone for proper placement of at least 2 posteromedial (PM) portals and to describe a safe intra-articular entrance point based on the location of the PM capsular folds. METHODS Arthroscopy was performed on 10 fresh-frozen cadaveric knees. With the knee flexed 90°, PM portals were created under direct visualization(More)
STUDY DESIGN Systematic literature review and meta-analysis. OBJECTIVE To evaluate studies that used arthritis self-management education alone or with exercise to improve Arthritis Self-Efficacy Scale scores of patients with knee osteoarthritis. BACKGROUND Increasing self-efficacy may improve patient knee osteoarthritis symptom management and function.(More)
PURPOSE To determine a critical canal dimension in patients with spinal stenosis that predicts response to epidural steroid injections (ESI). METHODS Lumbar spinal stenosis patients with a computed tomography scan before ESI were identified through ICD-9/CPT codes. Using a digital caliper, canal dimensions on axial cuts of each lumbar intervertebral level(More)
The literature suggests that a Grade II medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury in combination with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury will heal naturally and not compromise patient outcome following ACL reconstruction. Evidence based on bone-patella tendon-bone autograft use is stronger than evidence supporting anatomically placed soft tissue graft(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective evaluation of perioperative complications with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 on an absorbable collagen sponge (rhBMP-2/ACS) versus iliac crest bone graft (ICBG) for instrumented posterior cervical fusion. OBJECTIVE To determine the risk of perioperative complications using rhBMP-2/ACS for posterior cervical(More)
The purpose of this technical note is to describe the tibial fixation characteristics for an all-inside anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction method that links extra-cortical button suspensory and aperture fixation replicating double bundle soft tissue graft function in single femoral and tibial sockets. A 55° drill guide aligned(More)
