BACKGROUND Anatomic tunnel positioning is important in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgery. Recent studies have suggested the limitations of a traditional transtibial technique to place the ACL graft within the anatomic tunnel position of the ACL on the femur. The purpose of this study is to determine if the 2-incision tibial(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was undertaken to compare the clinical outcomes between the conservative treatment and pull-out repair of the medial meniscus root tear (MMRT), and to analyze the prognostic factors of the MMRT repair for the determination of repair indication. MATERIALS AND METHODS 38 patients, diagnosed with a MMRT between August 2010 and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) fovea landmark against conventional fluoroscopic pin placement retrospectively using 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D CT). METHODS This retrospective comparison focused on the tibial tunnel locations determined in consecutive 26 patients using the fluoroscopic imaging technique(More)
This study was performed to compare ACL graft maturation and morphologies using MRI between trans-tibial (TT) and retrograde outside-in (OI) techniques, and to compare clinical outcomes between the two groups. Patients underwent single-tunnel ACL reconstruction using quadrupled hamstring autografts, with the TT technique used on 42 patients (TT group) and(More)
The aim of this case report is to draw the attention to the occurrence of cystic fibrosis (C.F.) in a Korean infant and thus increase the awareness for the diagnosis. The male infant was presented with a history of recurrent bronchiolitis manifested by severe cough, wheeze and dyspnea from three weeks of age, in whom the diagnosis of C.F. was clinically(More)
Bucket-handle meniscal tears are either longitudinal, vertical, or oblique in direction with an attached tear fragment displaced from the meniscus. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signs are widely used in the diagnosis of these tears, including the 'fragment within the intercondylar notch sign', 'flipped meniscus sign', 'double anterior horn sign',(More)
Although obesity is clearly identified as a risk factor for diabetes, the relationship between diabetes and metabolically healthy status of obesity is less clear. This study was aimed to evaluate the incidental risk of diabetes according to metabolically healthy status of obesity. 31,834 Korean men without diabetes categorized into six groups according to(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the previous studies showing the relationship between microalbuminuria and insulin resistance, longitudinal effect of insulin resistance on development of microalbuminuria is not clearly identified in non-diabetic population. METHODS One thousand six hundred three non-diabetic Korean men without microalbuminuria in 2005 had been(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to investigate the correlation between bacterial growth in closed suction drainage tip culture and periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). METHODS Retrospective review included 256 patients who had undergone hip arthroplasty in which the closed suction drainage tip was cultured. Follow-up periods were longer than a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Although several studies have shown an association between ferritin level and hypertension, only a few studies have investigated the longitudinal relationship between them. Thus, we evaluated the incidental risk for hypertension according to baseline ferritin level. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 7104 healthy Korean men matched(More)
