STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to describe the normative data of the sagittal plane on pediatric age population, and to document the evolution of sagittal alignment with growth. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Having normative data about the sagittal plane is an integral part in the planning of the three-dimensional(More)
The elbow is a commonly injured joint, yet physicians may be less comfortable treating injuries to the elbow compared with knee and shoulder injuries. Common injuries involving the elbow are tendinosis, instability, tendon ruptures, osteochondritis dissecans, and fractures. Tendinosis is a common overuse injury and may occur on the lateral, medial, or(More)
Our aim was to determine the most repeatable three-dimensional measurement of glenoid orientation and to compare it between shoulders with intact and torn rotator cuffs. Our null hypothesis was that glenoid orientation in the scapulae of shoulders with a full-thickness tear of the rotator cuff was the same as that in shoulders with an intact rotator cuff.(More)
BACKGROUND Hemodynamically unstable patients with a pelvic fracture and arterial pelvic bleeding frequently are treated with pelvic angiographic embolization (PAE). PAE is reported to be a safe and effective method of controlling hemorrhage. However, the loss of blood supply and subsequent ischemia from embolization may lead to adverse consequences. (More)
PURPOSE This study aimed at evaluating the additional stability that is provided by anterior external and internal fixators in an unstable pelvic fracture model (OTA 61-C). METHODS An unstable pelvic fracture (OTA 61-C) was created in 27 synthetic pelves by making a 5-mm gap through the sacral foramina (posterior injury) and an ipsilateral pubic rami(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the fixation afforded by a dorsal nonlocking plate with a volar locking plate in a fracture model simulating an extra-articular distal radius fracture with dorsal comminution (OTA [Orthopaedic Trauma Association] type 23-A3.2). METHODS In 10 matched pairs of fresh-frozen cadaveric arms, a comminuted(More)
Calcific tendinitis results from deposition of calcium hydroxyapatite crystals in periarticular muscle attachments. Although involvement of tendons around the hip is not uncommon, gluteus medius and minimus tendons are rarely affected. We present endoscopic treatment of calcific tendonitis of gluteus medius and minimus and associated trochanteric bursitis(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical performance of a completely knotless double-row repair system (SutureCross Knotless Anatomic Fixation System; KFx Medical, Carlsbad, CA) with 2 commonly used hybrid double-row repair (medial knot-tying, lateral knotless) systems (Bio-Corkscrew/PushLock [Arthrex, Naples, FL] and(More)
We hypothesized that infection rates following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) in those with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) without hemophilia or drug use would be similar to rates in HIV-negative patients. Records at an urban HIV referral hospital were searched for patients who underwent primary total hip and knee arthroplasty from 2003 to 2010. The(More)
Successful treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is associated with early diagnosis and appropriate treatment. In this prospective study, the results of the treatment with Pavlik harness followed by an abduction brace in patients with severe DDH were presented. Twenty-two hips of 18 patients with a mean age of 14.8+/-5.9 weeks (range, 6-26)(More)
