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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of temporary hemiepiphyseal stapling on the bone geometry and proliferative activity of the physis in immature rabbits. Proximal medial epiphyseal stapling of the right tibia was performed in 46 6-week-old New Zealand white rabbits. The rabbits were assigned randomly into two groups. In group 1, the(More)
Forty-four developmentally dislocated hips occurring in 30 patients with an average age at initial surgery of 10.7 (range 2-19) months underwent medial open reduction by Ferguson's approach. All patients were skeletally mature at most recent evaluation. Mean follow-up was 19.8 (range 13-27.5) years. No redislocation or sub-luxation occurred. Additional(More)
