Patients with multidirectional glenohumeral instability without a Bankart lesion represent a challenging group. Arthroscopic pancapsular plication affords the surgeon flexibility to correct the degree and direction of laxity in the multidirectionally unstable patient. This technique can be combined with suture anchors if needed to correct capsulolabral(More)
Revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is indicated for selected patients with recurrent instability after a failed primary procedure. The cause of the failure must be carefully identified to avoid pitfalls that may cause the revision to fail as well. Associated instability patterns must be recognized and corrected to achieve a successful(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrent instability after surgical stabilization of the shoulder is uncommon. Although results of open revision stabilization procedures have been reported, only 3 studies have evaluated the outcome of arthroscopic revision surgery. PURPOSE To analyze results of arthroscopic revision anterior shoulder reconstruction at the authors'(More)
Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction is a commonly performed procedure for patellofemoral instability. In recent years the surgery has evolved considerably as the anatomy and goals of reconstruction have become more defined. This has resulted in numerous surgical options involving various fixation devices. Furthermore, as biomechanical data(More)
PURPOSE (1) Describe a previously unreported finding involving the intra-articular portion of the subscapularis, the Conrad lesion. (2) Describe a novel classification system for the spectrum of non-insertional tendinopathy of the subscapularis. (3) Report the outcomes of surgical treatment of this spectrum of pathology. MATERIALS AND METHODS Outcomes of(More)
BACKGROUND A novel arthroscopic technique allows for intraosseous tendon placement in biceps tenodesis using bone tunnels and suture while avoiding the expense of an implant. No biomechanical characterization exists for this construct. METHODS Tensile tests were used to compare a suture-only biceps tenodesis technique (arthroscopic biceps intraosseous(More)
We conducted a study to evaluate in vivo tension applied to the rotator cuff tendon positioned at the medial versus lateral footprint during arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. We evaluated 20 consecutive patients who underwent arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. During repair, a grasper was inserted through a lateral portal, and a digital weigh scale was(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effectiveness of proficiency-based progression (PBP) training using simulation both compared with the same training without proficiency requirements and compared with a traditional resident course for learning to perform an arthroscopic Bankart repair (ABR). METHODS In a prospective, randomized, blinded study, 44 postgraduate year(More)
Most shoulder instability repairs are performed with single-loaded suture anchors. Recent reports have shown that there is increased stress on both the glenoid labrum and suture anchor when sutures from single-loaded anchors are passed through the capsule and labrum. This report describes a novel technique for shoulder instability repair using double-loaded(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the time zero cyclic and failure loading properties of a linked single-row rotator cuff repair compared with a standard simple suture single-row repair using triple-loaded suture anchors. METHODS Eighteen human cadaveric shoulders from 9 matched pairs were dissected, and full-thickness supraspinatus tears(More)
