BACKGROUND Distal rupture of the triceps tendon is a rare injury, and treatment guidelines are not well established. HYPOTHESIS Football players with triceps tendon ruptures will be able to return to their sport with minimal functional deficits. STUDY DESIGN Uncontrolled retrospective review. METHODS Twenty-one partial and complete ruptures of the(More)
Historically, the surgical treatment of bicipital pathology has been a variety of tenodesis techniques. The purpose of this study is to report the results of simple biceps tenotomy for the treatment of bicipital pathology. Thirty shoulders in 30 consecutive patients who had a simple arthroscopic biceps tendon release were reviewed. Data was collected(More)
One hundred consecutive superficial mass lesions in various body sites were sampled by both conventional fine needle aspiration (FNA) and by a fine needle without the application of syringe suction. The latter technique is based on the principle of capillarity and may be termed "fine needle capillary" (FNC) sampling. The two sampling techniques were(More)
We present a case of a 25-year-old woman undergoing arthroscopy for multidirectional instability. She was found to have a complete absence of the long head of the biceps tendon, thought to be congenital. It is hypothesized that the absence of the biceps may have played a role in the instability.
Eighty-one patients with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the thumb took part in a blinded, controlled study to assess the effectiveness of 0.9 mw continuous wave HeNe laser treatment. The subjects were randomly placed in either a control group or a treatment group. In each group the carpometacarpal (CMC), metacarpophalangeal (MCP), and interphalangeal (IP)(More)
Thirty-seven uncemented primary porous coated anatomic (PCA) total hip arthroplasties (THA) that were performed in 33 patients for the diagnosis of avascular necrosis (AVN) between June 1984 and December 1986 were reexamined at four- to six-year follow-up periods. Final clinical evaluation showed an 86-point average Harris hip rating (range, 47-100 points),(More)
The impingement test, placement of local anesthetic in the subacromial space, is considered a useful tool in diagnosing impingement syndrome. The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive value of the impingement test with respect to outcome after arthroscopic subacromial decompression. Fifty-five patients who had a preoperative impingement test(More)
CONTEXT Dynamic shoulder motion can be captured using video capture systems, but reliability has not yet been established. OBJECTIVE To compare the reliability of 2 systems in measuring dynamic shoulder kinematics during forward-elevation movements and to determine differences in these kinematics between healthy and injured subjects. DESIGN Reliability(More)
