UNLABELLED Isolated patellofemoral osteoarthritis in the healthy middle-aged population is a challenging problem. Fifty-one knees in 50 patients with isolated patellofemoral osteoarthritis were treated by partial lateral facetectomy, lateral release, and medialization of the tibial tubercle. The minimum followup was 7 months (mean, 20.2 months; range, 7-32(More)
The purpose of the current study was to obtain additional information about the biomechanical behavior of different fixation techniques for meniscus repair using recently developed biodegradable implants and suture repair techniques. The posterior horns of human menisci were used to investigate the meniscus repair construct of the Arrow, Screw, Stinger,(More)
Two femoral fixation techniques for quadruple hamstring tendon grafts were compared under cyclic loading with the patellar tendon: the rectangular inserted pin (TransFix) and biodegradable interference screw fixation of the quadruple tendon and titanium interference screw fixation of the middle third of the patellar tendon. Porcine specimens were mounted(More)
PURPOSE The incidence and progression of osteoarthritis over a time period of 35 years following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) disruption in high-level athletes has not been clearly determined. Our study examined this. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective cohort clinical study. METHODS Following a central guideline, between March 1963 and December 1965, all(More)
This study evaluated the incidence, amount, morphology and clinical significance of bone tunnel widening (TW) at a mean 5-year period after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) with a transtibial drilling technique. Fifty-nine patients undergoing primary ACLR using quadrupled hamstring autografts, biodegradable transfemoral pins for(More)
We report the case of a 20-year-old soccer player who suffered a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with a depression fracture of the lateral femoral condyle. In addition to repairing the ligament we were able to arthroscopically reduce the depression fracture using a bioabsorbable screw. We tamped the surrounding cancellous bone with dilatators and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the midterm results of a standardized arthroscopic technique for labrum reconstruction by using a third suprabicipital portal for better visualization of the anterior glenoid rim. METHODS Thirty-three of 36 patients treated for recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation were followed up by telephone and/or in clinical examinations. The(More)
Arthroscopic reconstruction of glenohumeral instability has become more common during the past decade. Compared with open reconstruction, which is still the gold standard in the treatment of shoulder instability, arthroscopic techniques allow for improved diagnosis of numerous intraarticular findings. This review presents an appropriate system for the(More)
Biodegradable transfemoral graft fixation devices used in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction have recently been reported to precociously lose structural integrity. This study investigated outcomes after ACL reconstruction using hamstring grafts and biodegradable transfemoral fixation at 5-year follow-up. The condition of both graft and fixation(More)
Biodegradable implants are frequently used for meniscus repair. Articular cartilage damage has been reported recently after meniscus repair with biodegradable implants. The aim of the study was to investigate the meniscofemoral contact pressure at the posterior horn of the medial and lateral meniscus after repair of bucket-handle lacerations. Specimens were(More)
