OBJECTIVE To assess the ability of 3D MR shoulder reconstructions to accurately quantify glenoid bone loss in the clinical setting using findings at the time of arthroscopy as the gold standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective review of patients with MR shoulder studies that included 3D MR reconstructions (3D MR) produced using an axial Dixon(More)

BACKGROUND To date, repair of the lacertus in distal biceps tendon ruptures, recommended by some, has not been evaluated. The goal of these biomechanical experiments was to evaluate the degree to which its repair increases the strength of a distal biceps tendon repair. HYPOTHESIS An intact or repaired lacertus fibrosus will increase the strength of a(More)
Platelet-rich plasma is defined as autologous blood with a concentration of platelets above baseline values. Platelet-rich plasma has been used in maxillofacial and plastic surgery since the 1990s; its use in sports medicine is growing given its potential to enhance muscle and tendon healing. In vitro studies suggest that growth factors released by(More)
Persistent shoulder pain is a very common condition that often has a multifactorial underlying pathology and is associated with high societal cost and patient burden. In 2000, the direct costs for the treatment of shoulder dysfunction in the United States totaled $7 billion. Persistent shoulder pain can result from bursitis, tendinitis, rotator cuff tear,(More)
Twenty-nine cases of operative arthroscopy of the ankle were done between 1985 and 1989 for synovial impingement of the ankle. The average age of the patients was 37 years. All patients (17 men, 12 women) reported an earlier history of injury, with 24 of the patients (83%) noting chronic ankle pain after an inversion injury and 5 of the patients (17%)(More)
Varus or valgus malalignment of the knee may be either a cause or a consequence of unicompartmental knee arthritis in young, active adults. Proximal tibial osteotomy for the varus knee and distal femoral osteotomy for the valgus knee have been used for decades to manage this condition; however, their use has decreased significantly in recent years as the(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively assess magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features of radial tunnel syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was obtained, and informed consent was waived for the retrospective HIPAA-compliant study. MR images of 10 asymptomatic volunteers (six men, four women; mean age, 30 years) and 25 patients (11 men,(More)
There is general agreement that the implant of choice for intertrochanteric fractures is the sliding hip screw (SHS). However, considerable differences of opinion exist as to which plate angle--varying from 130 to 150 degrees--is preferred. Thus far there has been no cadaver-based biomechanical analysis of this problem. To examine these questions, we(More)
