TLDR
In summary, four-corner fusion with a polyether-ether-ketone locking, dorsal circular plate results in high union rates and the use of a radiolucent plate allows for more accurate assessment of union with the biomechanical advantages of a fixed angle construct.
Case–control study to estimate the performance of dual-energy computed tomography for anterior cruciate ligament tears in patients with history of knee trauma
TLDR
DECT knee images with oblique sagittal reconstructions using either mixed kV or bone removal displays (either DECT or SE) depict ACL disruption in the subacute or chronic setting with reliable identification by musculoskeletal radiologists.
Management of thumb metacarpophalangeal ulnar collateral ligament injuries.
TLDR
Treatment options include static and dynamic reconstructions, and salvage may be performed with MCPJ fusion if painful arthrosis is present with chronic UCL instability.
Complex Distal Radius Fractures: An Anatomic Algorithm for Surgical Management.
TLDR
Effective restoration of the bony architecture requires intimate knowledge of the anatomy of the distal radius, a thorough understanding of the goals of treatment, versatility in surgical approaches, and familiarity with multiple fixation options.
Use of dual-energy CT and virtual non-calcium techniques to evaluate post-traumatic bone bruises in knees in the subacute setting
TLDR
DECT and VNCa images can identify bone bruising for at least 10 weeks after injury and no resolution of bruising was seen before week 5, and bone bruising was still identifiable in one out of the two patients scanned at 10  weeks following injury.
Arthroscopic treatment of localized pigmented villonodular synovitis: long-term functional results.
TLDR
Arthroscopic excision of LPVNS can improve symptoms with a return to preoperative activity levels, but patients may develop secondary osteoarthritis after treatment, as noted in long-term follow-up.
A biomechanical comparison of the Delta screw and RetroScrew tibial fixation on initial intra-articular graft tension
TLDR
Delta screw tibial fixation (antegrade) in soft tissue ACL reconstruction significantly increases the initial intra-articular graft tension as compared to RetroScrew screw fixation (retrograde) in this cadaveric model.
Minimally Invasive Flexible Insertion and Rigid Intramedullary Nail Fixation for Distal Radius Fractures

  • 1 September 2012
TLDR
A novel IM device is described, which provides locked fixed angle distal screws to support the articular subchondral bone and a unique flexible IM component that conforms to the patient’s anatomy, is made rigid, and locks proximally with IM fixation within the radial diaphysis to be more patient specific and further minimize soft tissue irritation.
