The purpose of this investigation was to identify and quantify the soft tissue restraints, both medially and laterally, to lateral patellar translation. These restraints to lateral patellar translation at 20 degrees of knee flexion were tested biomechanically on a universal testing instrument in nine fresh-frozen cadaveric knees. After preconditioning the(More)
We performed instrumented measurement of anterior-posterior laxity of the knee in thirty-three cadaver specimens, 338 normal subjects, and eighty-nine patients with unilateral disruption of the anterior cruciate ligament. The test instrument was the Medmetric knee arthrometer, model KT-2000. We measured total anterior-posterior laxity, produced by anterior(More)
BACKGROUND Double-row arthroscopic rotator cuff repair has become more popular, and some studies have shown better footprint coverage and improved biomechanics of the repair. HYPOTHESIS Double-row rotator cuff repair leads to superior cuff integrity and early clinical results compared with single-row repair. STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial;(More)
BACKGROUND Septic arthritis after arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is rare, and the most appropriate treatment is unclear. Current recommendations are that, if the graft is removed, reimplantation should be delayed for 6 to 9 months. HYPOTHESIS Early removal of the graft with appropriate infection management followed by early(More)
Revision reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) introduces several diagnostic and technical challenges in comparison with primary ACL reconstruction. With the increasing numbers of original reconstructions combined with the continued expectation of high-level athletic participation, revision ACL reconstruction is likely to become more(More)
The anatomy of the lateral ankle ligaments that is frequently described in articles and book chapters often lacks the precision of orientation and attachment points. We believe a knowledge of this precise anatomy is important to better reconstruct or repair lateral ligaments. We dissected cadaveric ankles free of skin and soft tissue and made the following(More)
From an original pool of 283 patients, 146 patients who had undergone arthroscopic partial meniscectomy an average of 14.7 years before were followed-up. Lysholm score, Tegner activity level, satisfaction index on a scale of 1 to 10, and standing anteroposterior and flexion weight-bearing radiographs of both knees, were obtained. A physical examination was(More)
The standard approach through the popliteal fossa to the tibial attachment of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) can be time-consuming and is regarded as hazardous. The simplified approach does not transect or expose neurovascular structures as in other procedures. With dissection on the medial border of the medial head of the gastrocnemius and by(More)
Microsatellite instability (MI), detected as electrophoretic shifts in allele sizes of microsatellite DNA sequences, has been identified in some colorectal carcinomas. Investigators have previously attributed such microsatellite instability to replication errors (RER). The colorectal carcinomas with RER have been found to arise either sporadically or in(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the addition of paclitaxel to doxorubicin plus cisplatin improves overall survival (OS) in women with advanced or recurrent endometrial carcinoma. Secondary comparisons included progression-free survival (PFS), response rate (RR), and toxicities. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eligible, consenting patients received doxorubicin 60(More)
