The aim of the study was to assess population variation of the vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) insertion to the patella. Sixty-five magnetic resonance imaging studies and 18 cadaver specimens were studied. The VMO insertion was expressed as a percentage of patellar length. In the magnetic resonance imaging cohort, the mean insertion was 51% (range 13-95);(More)
Olecranon fractures are common. They are usually managed surgically with open reduction and either tension band wiring or plate fixation. Currently, there are few studies comparing fracture treatments. We aim to review the available literature to guide the orthopaedic surgeon on the management of these fractures. A literature review of peer-reviewed(More)
When performing minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty, the level of the vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) insertion is important, as a distal insertion may prevent a true quadriceps-sparing approach. We have previously reported a variable VMO insertion to the patella. In this article we propose a simple classification system to describe the level of(More)
