The incidence of noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injuries in young to middle-aged athletes remains high. Despite early diagnosis and appropriate operative and nonoperative treatments, posttraumatic degenerative arthritis may develop. In a meeting in Atlanta, Georgia (January 2005), sponsored by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, a(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the real-time intersession and interrater reliability of the functional movement screen (FMS). The overall study consisted of 19 volunteer civilians (12 male, 7 female). The intersession reliability consisted of 12 men and 7 women, whereas 10 men and 6 women participated in the interrater reliability test session.(More)
Recently, gender-specific designs of total knee replacement have been developed to accommodate anatomical differences between males and females. We examined a group of male and female distal femora matched for age and height, to determine if there was a difference in the aspect ratio (mediolateral distance versus anteroposterior distance) and the height of(More)
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a heterogeneous connective tissue condition characterized by varying degrees of skin hyperextensibility, joint hypermobility, and vascular fragility. Joint dislocations, musculoskeletal pain, atrophic scars, easy bleeding, vessel/viscera rupture, severe scoliosis, and obstetric complications may occur. These manifestations are(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine differences in insertional articular trauma in infrapatellar tibial portal and suprapatellar portal intramedullary tibial nail insertion techniques. A cadaveric study was performed on 10 matched pairs of fresh-frozen adult cadaver lower extremities with intact extensor mechanisms. Two study groups with 10 limbs(More)
Suture repair of the ruptured patellar tendon is the treatment of choice for patients requiring operative management. This standard technique includes fixation through transosseous tunnels in the patella. The use of suture anchor fixation has several advantages over the standard approach, including less dissection, decreased surgical time, more accurate(More)
The mechanism of injury for fractures to long bones has been studied for both direct ballistic loading as well as indirect. However, the majority of these studies have been conducted on both post-mortem human subjects (PMHS) and animal surrogates which have constraints in terms of storage, preparation and testing. The identification of a validated bone(More)
