This study consisted of 26 male patients with distal biceps tendon ruptures, 2 of whom had bilateral injuries, making the total number of ruptures 28. The average age at injury was 45 years. The treatment groups were the following: 3 were treated without surgery, 4 were repaired with brachialis tenodesis, and 21 were reattached to the radial tuberosity by(More)
MATERIALS A consecutive group of 73 patients (77 calcaneal fractures) treated with open reduction and internal fixation through a smile-shaped lateral approach to the hindfoot were reviewed retrospectively. Inclusion criteria were a closed displaced intra-articular fracture of the calcaneus, no compartment syndrome, and adequate followup. Followup ranged(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to objectively compare volume reduction after arthroscopic plication and open lateral capsular shift. TYPE OF STUDY Experimental cadaver study. METHODS Fifteen fresh-frozen human cadaver shoulders were assigned to 1 of 2 groups: arthroscopic plication (n = 7) or open lateral capsular shift (n = 8). Initial capsular(More)
BACKGROUND Single- and double-bundle reconstructions have been proposed for the knee after combined posterior cruciate ligament/posterolateral corner injuries. HYPOTHESIS The double-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is superior to the single-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with regard to restoration of normal knee(More)
Single-bundle posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction can restore normal posterior laxity; double-bundle reconstruction is needed to more closely mimic normal knee kinematics. Drilling two tunnels removes additional bone from the medial femoral condyle and may interfere with its vascular supply, increasing the risk of fracture or subchondral(More)
We compared 2 groups of patients with chronic distal biceps tendon ruptures, 7 patients treated nonoperatively and 7 undergoing semitendinosus autograft tendon reconstruction. The mean time to surgery after the initial injury was 17 weeks. The mean clinical follow-up in the operative group was 63 months. Functional strength and endurance testing was(More)
