BACKGROUND The Delta III reverse-ball-and-socket total shoulder implant is designed to restore overhead shoulder function in the presence of irreparable rotator cuff deficiency by using the intact deltoid muscle and the stability provided by the prosthetic design. Our purpose was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results of this arthroplasty in a(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the subjective shoulder value (SSV) and to compare it with the Constant score (CS). The SSV is defined as a patient's subjective shoulder assessment expressed as a percentage of an entirely normal shoulder, which would score 100%. Patients who underwent operative treatment for rotator cuff repair (n = 247),(More)
BACKGROUND Femoroacetabular impingement is a common hip pathology resulting in pain and impaired physical function. However, very little is known about gait differences between those with and without femoroacetabular impingement. Thus, the purpose of this study was to compare three-dimensional gait kinematics and kinetics between those with femoroacetabular(More)
We reviewed 100 patients treated arthroscopically for symptoms of chronic ankle pain associated with sprains of the ankle. All had pain that had failed to respond to conservative treatment for at least 6 months. The pathology in 95 of the 100 ankles studied could be categorized into one of three groups: the instabilities (lateral and syndesmotic), the(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe landmarks for latissimus dorsi tendon transfer in massive irreparable tears of the rotator cuff. Nine pairs of embalmed cadaveric shoulders were dissected. Crucial structures were identified, and their relationship with various bony and soft-tissue reference points was documented. Identification of the dense fibrous(More)
We treated 31 cases of olecranon bursitis and 19 cases of prepatellar bursitis. The average duration of symptoms before surgery was 1.1 years with a range of 3 months to 4 years. All patients had had preoperative aspiration and injection of cortisone. Patients underwent an arthroscopic bursal resection, removing all the bursal sack that could be seen. The(More)
We reviewed the English language medical literature on soft tissue injuries of the ankle published between 1966 and 1993. There were 150 articles reviewed of which 84 dealt substantially with ankle soft tissue injuries. The papers were analyzed for quality and it was found that there were significant weaknesses throughout the literature. This related(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to systematically review the content and clinimetric evidence (rigor of rating scales and indexes for the description of clinical phenomena) of published patient-reported outcome (PRO) instruments used to assess femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and labral hip pathology. METHODS We used Medical Subject Heading terms(More)
Low-grade infection was systematically searched for in all revision shoulder surgeries by harvesting tissue samples. Ten consecutive patients were identified with a non-purulent low-grade infection of the shoulder. All of these patients suffered from pain and eight were stiff. Preoperative aspiration in eight patients yielded bacterial growth in only one(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the needs of surgical residents as teachers of clinical clerks. DESIGN A needs assessment survey. SETTING Department of Surgery, University of Toronto. PARTICIPANTS Clinical clerks and surgical residents and staff surgeons. METHODS Three stakeholder groups were defined: staff surgeons, surgical residents and clinical clerks.(More)
