Meniscal Injury After Adolescent Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury: How Long Are Patients at Risk?
Medial meniscal tears, especially bucket handle tears, increased steadily in frequency more than 1 year after ACL injury, and timely ACL reconstruction may be warranted to reduce the risk of further medial meniscal damage even in patients whose original injury occurred more than1 year before. Expand
Conservative Treatment of ACL Tear
Variable outcomes of nonsurgical treatment have been reported, but select athletes with proper nonoperative management may be able to function at a high level without instability or increased risk of further injury. Expand
Approach to the Active Patient with Chronic Anterior Knee Pain
Treatment for anterior knee pain is typically nonoperative and includes activity modification, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, supervised physical therapy, orthotics, and footwear adjustment, and patients should be informed that it may take several months for symptoms to resolve. Expand
Rehabilitation Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears in Children: A Systematic Review
To effectively prevent re‐rupture or contralateral injury, future research should focus on prospectively evaluating each component of the rehabilitation protocols described and return‐to‐sport criteria for young patients. Expand
A review of knee pain in adolescent females.
This article highlights patellofemoral pain syndrome, Sinding-Larsen-Johansson syndrome, Osgood-Schlatter disease, and meniscal tears. Expand
The Impact of Delay to Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction on Patient-Reported Outcomes and Concurrent Knee Injuries
The ideal timing of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is debatable after the operation and the results suggest that the best time to operate is around 12 weeks after the injury. Expand
The aim of our study was to test sensitivity and repeatability of torque and angle active tracking tasks at the knee joint and to compare the results of these two tests with one another. Twenty-fourExpand

Knee conditions.


Pediatric knee MR imaging: pattern of injuries in the immature skeleton.
The results show that medial meniscal tears are the most common cartilaginous or ligamentous injury in children and adolescents, however, the frequency of specific injuries in adults is different from that in adults. Expand
Clinical diagnosis of an anterior cruciate ligament rupture: a meta-analysis.
The Lachman test is the most valid test to determine ACL tears, showing a pooled sensitivity of 85% ( 95% confidence interval [CI], 83-87) and a pooled specificity of 94% (95% CI, 92-95) and the pivot shift test is very specific, but has a poor sensitivity. Expand
Evaluation of patients presenting with knee pain: Part I. History, physical examination, radiographs, and laboratory tests.
Family physicians frequently encounter patients with knee pain. Accurate diagnosis requires a knowledge of knee anatomy, common pain patterns in knee injuries, and features of frequently encounteredExpand
Current Concept Review - Osteochondritis Dissecans*
The treatment of osteochondritis dissecans has evolved from the removal of loose bodies to the resurfacing of defects with an osteochondral autogenous graft158, but the results of current treatment are still not uniformly successful. Expand

The current technique involves the initial removal of the anterior portion of the meniscus, as this allows clearer visualization during the procedure, more space for manipulating surgical instruments, and a reduced operative time. Expand
IL-1-induced receptor activator of NF-kappa B ligand in human periodontal ligament cells involves ERK-dependent PGE2 production.
It is suggested that IL-1alpha stimulates osteoclast formation by increasing the expression level of RANKL versus OPG via ERK-dependent PGE2 production in PDL cells. Expand
