PURPOSE This study evaluated the outcome of arthroscopy-assisted reduction with internal fixation for treating tibial plateau fractures at 2- to 10-year follow-up. METHODS Fifty-four patients with tibial plateau fractures treated by arthroscopy-assisted reduction with internal fixation were enrolled in this prospective study. According to the Schatzker(More)
PURPOSE This investigation arthroscopically assesses the frequency of soft tissue injury in tibial plateau fracture according to the severity of fracture patterns. We hypothesized that use of arthroscopy to evaluate soft tissue injury in tibial plateau fractures would reveal a greater number of associated injuries than have previously been reported. (More)
BACKGROUND Most dislocated knees involved tears in the two cruciate ligaments were often accompanied by other collateral ligament complexes. Surgical repair or reconstruction seems to achieve results superior to conservative treatment. Various methods of reconstructing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) after knee(More)
PURPOSE A modified technique for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction without graft injury by femoral interference screw insertion directly through the tibial tunnel is reported. This study evaluated femur bioabsorbable interference screw divergence and obliquity of the graft and tunnel positions as measured by multiplanar reconstruction computed(More)
BACKGROUND Hip arthroscopy is recognized as a highly effective means of treating joint disorders. Complications in hip arthroscopy, including neurovascular traction injury, compression injury to the perineum and scope trauma, have been reported. We report our experience with 73 hip arthroscopy procedures and complications at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. (More)
BACKGROUND Because the complications of vertebroplasty are serious and can include new fracture, we retrospectively evaluated potential risk factors for new fracture after vertebroplasty. Our hypothesis is that thoracolumbar vertebrae adjacent to a vertebroplasty site have a higher incidence of new compression fracture than do other vertebrae. METHODS(More)
