Femoroacetabular impingement causes groin pain and decreased athletic performance in active adults. This bony conflict may result in femoroacetabular subluxation if of sufficient magnitude. The ligamentum teres has recently been reported to be capable of withstanding tensile loads similar to that of the anterior cruciate ligament, and patents with(More)
Clavicle fractures are common in adults and children. Most commonly, these fractures occur within the middle third of the clavicle and exhibit some degree of displacement. Whereas many midshaft clavicle fractures can be treated nonsurgically, recent evidence suggests that more severe fracture types exhibit higher rates of symptomatic nonunion or malunion.(More)
Scapulothoracic bursitis and snapping scapula syndrome are rare diagnoses that contribute to considerable morbidity in some patients. These conditions represent a spectrum of disorders characterized by pain with or without mechanical crepitus. They are commonly identified in young, active patients who perform repetitive overhead activities. Causes include(More)
Posterior shoulder instability with glenoid deficiency is a rare entity and its surgical treatment is challenging. Reconstructive techniques have focused on extra-articular structural bone transfer that obstructs humeral translation and thereby prevents glenohumeral dislocation. However, long-term results are not as promising. In this report, the authors(More)
BACKGROUND Internal fixation is an accepted treatment for displaced fractures of the calcaneus. Operative intervention in older patients, however, is traditionally discouraged in the literature. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of internal fixation of intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus on the basis of patient age. METHODS One(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of arthroscopic scapulothoracic bursectomy in patients with snapping scapula syndrome with a minimum of 2 years' follow-up. METHODS In this institutional review board-approved retrospective study, 23 shoulders in 21 consecutive patients were identified that had undergone arthroscopic treatment(More)
Acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries are common in athletic populations and account for 40% to 50% of shoulder injuries in many contact sports, including lacrosse, hockey, rugby and football. The AC joint is stabilized by static and dynamic restraints, including the coracoclavicular (CC) ligaments. Knowledge of these supporting structures is important when(More)
BACKGROUND Clavicle fractures are common injuries of the shoulder girdle and occasionally result in nonunion or symptomatic malunion. When present, these chronic injuries can result in considerable shoulder dysfunction. A number of surgical techniques have been described for the management of these injuries. Current literature suggests that supplemental(More)
Multidirectional shoulder instability is defined as symptomatic instability in two or more directions. Instability occurs when static and dynamic shoulder stabilizers become incompetent due to congenital or acquired means. Nonspecific activity-related pain and decreased athletic performance are common presenting complaints. Clinical suspicion for(More)
PURPOSE To provide an overview of the characteristics and timing of rotator cuff healing and provide an update on treatments used in rehabilitation of rotator cuff repairs. The authors' protocol of choice, used within a large sports medicine rehabilitation center, is presented and the rationale behind its implementation is discussed. BACKGROUND If initial(More)
