There is a growing interest in three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) as a research tool for the study of bone, joint anatomy, and kinematics. However, when CT data are processed and handled manually using image processing programs to yield 3D image and coordinate value, systematic and random errors should be validated. We evaluated the accuracy and(More)
PURPOSE To compare mechanical properties of a multistrand suture technique for flexor tendon repair with those of conventional suture methods through biomechanical and clinical studies. METHODS We describe a multistrand suture technique that is readily expandable from 6 to 10 strands of core suture. For biomechanical evaluation, 60 porcine flexor tendons(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the isometry of an anatomic femoral tunnel and anterior tibial tunnel positions. METHODS Tibial tunnels were made at 2 different locations in 10 cadaveric knees: the conventional tunnel and a more anterior position. Three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scanning was then performed at 0°, 30°, 60°,(More)
PURPOSE It is reported that the length of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) fibres increases as the knee flexes, and the magnitude of the length change reaches up to 9.8 mm throughout the range of motion, which exceeds the range of failure strain. Therefore, we postulated that a compensatory mechanism must be recruited to overcome this large strain in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the isometry of different tunnel positions in posterolateral corner (PLC) reconstruction using 3-dimensional computed tomography. METHODS In 10 fresh-frozen cadaveric knees, fibular tunnels were made from the anterodistal surface of the fibular neck to the posteroproximal fibular tip. Tibial tunnels were made from just medial to the(More)
