PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence of associated injuries and meniscal tears in children and adolescents with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, we performed a retrospective review of patients, age 14 and younger, who were treated surgically at our institution. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective review. METHODS We reviewed 39 patients (30 girls, 9 boys)(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding glenohumeral motion in normal and pathologic states requires the precise measurement of shoulder kinematics. The effect of the plane of arm elevation on glenohumeral translations and rotations remains largely unknown. The purpose of this study was to measure the three-dimensional glenohumeral translations and rotations during arm(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior shoulder instability associated with severe glenoid bone loss is rare, and little has been reported on this problem. Recent biomechanical and anatomical studies have suggested guidelines for bony reconstruction of the glenoid. HYPOTHESIS Anatomical glenoid reconstruction will restore stability in shoulders with recurrent anterior(More)
BACKGROUND Injuries to the sternoclavicular (SC) joint typically occur with high-energy mechanisms such as those obtained in automobile accidents or contact sports. Many disorders of the SC joint can be treated nonoperatively. However, surgical treatment may be indicated for locked posterior dislocations; symptomatic, chronic instability; or persistent,(More)
The treatment of anterior glenohumeral instability continues to evolve. Open capsulolabral repairs are time-tested and reliable. In an era in which arthroscopic techniques continue to improve, open surgery remains an acceptable option, and there are still certain injury patterns that cannot be adequately addressed arthroscopically. Decision-making regarding(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrent defects after open and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair are common. Double-row repair techniques may improve initial fixation and quality of rotator cuff repair. PURPOSE To evaluate the load to failure, cyclic displacement, and anatomical footprint of 4 arthroscopic rotator cuff repair techniques. HYPOTHESIS Double-row suture anchor(More)
Lesions of the long head biceps tendon (LHB) are frequent causes of shoulder pain and disability. Biceps tenotomy and tenodesis have gained widespread acceptance as effective procedures to manage both isolated LHB pathology and combined lesions of the rotator cuff and biceps-labral complex. The function of the LHB tendon and its role in glenohumeral(More)
The development of increasingly high-throughput and sensitive mass spectroscopy-based proteomic techniques provides new opportunities to examine the physiology and pathophysiology of many biologic fluids and tissues. The purpose of this study was to determine protein expression profiles of high-abundance synovial fluid (SF) proteins in health and in the(More)
Posterior shoulder instability with glenoid deficiency is a rare entity and its surgical treatment is challenging. Reconstructive techniques have focused on extra-articular structural bone transfer that obstructs humeral translation and thereby prevents glenohumeral dislocation. However, long-term results are not as promising. In this report, the authors(More)
