PURPOSE The objectives of this study were (1) to compare locations of the femoral tunnels created by outside-in and transtibial techniques and the reference data and (2) to compare the diameter of the tunnel entrance based on the real reaming size. METHODS A comparative study was performed with 20 outside-in and 22 transtibial double-bundle anterior(More)
Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries associated with multiple ligament injuries can be easily diagnosed, but isolated PCL tears are less symptomatic, very difficult to diagnose, and frequently misdiagnosed. If a detailed investigation of the history of illness suggests a PCL injury, careful physical examinations including the posterior drawer test,(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in the site-specific cartilage status after a double-bundle ACL reconstruction using preoperative and follow-up MR images. Thirty-six knees that underwent a double-bundle ACL reconstruction from 2001 to 2009 with the available preoperative and follow-up magnetic resonance imaging were included. Patients(More)
PURPOSE This study compared the results of rotating-platform high-flexion (RP-F) total knee arthroplasty with low contact stress (LCS) for clinical and radiographical assessment after a short-term period. MATERIALS AND METHODS 68 total knee arthroplasties using a RP-F and LCS system were analyzed retrospectively. Thirty-five of the 68 were osteoarthritic(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the tunnel widening using a multi-planar reformation of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) in the orientation of the tunnel. The hypotheses of this study were as follows: (1) tunnel widening would be reduced with the above-mentioned technique, (2) the degree of tunnel widening would be different at the site of the(More)
INTRODUCTION This study examined the bone density around the fixation area during knee ligament reconstructions and assessed how this clinical relevance can be applied to a firm construction for a reconstructed ligament. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty consecutive patients (25 healthy men and 25 healthy women) were enrolled in this study. A quantitative(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the clinical and radiologic results of preserved ligament remnants in the selective bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and totally sacrificed ligament remnant in the double-bundle ACL reconstruction in order to confirm the evidence of selective bundle reconstruction. This retrospective(More)
PURPOSE To understand the relationship between tibial bone defect and extent of medial release in total knee arthroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated 32 knees in 22 patients with variable degrees of tibial bone defect on medial plateau has undergone total knee arthroplasty. In this study, 31 cases had been diagnosed as degenerative osteoarthritis(More)
We describe a case of delayed cyst formation that presented as intermittent knee locking after complicated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using a Bio-TransFix implant in a 21-year-old male patient. During femoral fixation, we could not pull out the guide wire that was temporarily used for the femoral fixation. However, stability was good,(More)
