The proximal femur is abnormally shaped in patients with cam-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Impingement may elicit bone remodeling at the proximal femur, causing increases in cortical bone thickness. We used correspondence-based shape modeling to quantify and compare cortical thickness between cam patients and controls for the location of the cam(More)
BACKGROUND Ischiofemoral impingement (IFI) is a dynamic process, but its diagnosis is often based on static, supine images. PURPOSE To couple 3-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) models with dual fluoroscopy (DF) images to quantify in vivo hip motion and the ischiofemoral space (IFS) in asymptomatic participants during weightbearing activities and(More)
Background: Recent evidence suggests that the frequency response requirements for peak expiratory flow (PEF) meters are higher than was first thought and that the American Thoracic Society (ATS) waveforms to test PEF meters may not be adequate for the purpose. Methods: The dynamic response of mini-Wright (MW), Vitalograph (V), TruZone (TZ), MultiSpiro (MS)(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to quantify the amount of internal femur rotation required to visualize the 12 to 3 o'clock positions of the femoral head-neck junction as seen on the false-profile radiograph. METHODS Computed tomography (CT) images of the femur were retrospectively reviewed from control subjects and cam femoroacetabular impingement(More)
BACKGROUND Residual impingement resulting from insufficient resection of bone during the index femoroplasty is the most-common reason for revision surgery in patients with cam-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Development of surgical resection guidelines therefore could reduce the number of patients with persistent pain and reduced ROM after(More)

Predictions from biomechanical models of gait may be sensitive to joint center locations. Most often, the hip joint center (HJC) is derived from locations of reflective markers adhered to the skin. Here, predictive techniques use regression equations of pelvic anatomy to estimate the HJC, whereas functional methods track motion of markers placed at the(More)
INTRODUCTION: Improper resection depth in the surgical correction of cam-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has been identified as the most common reason for revision hip arthroscopy [1]. Under-resection fails to address patient symptoms and results in the need for revision arthroscopy [1], while over-resection may lead to iatrogenic femoral neck(More)
