Arthroscopic Treatment of Diffuse Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis of the Knee: Complete Synovectomy and Septum Removal —Midterm Results

This study showed that an attentive arthroscopic synovectomy is a safer alternative with better clinical outcomes, with no clinical recurrences. [...] Thieme Medical Publishers 333 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001, USA.Article in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

Abstract Background: The incidence and extent of graft extrusion after meniscus allograft transplantation (MAT) may differ in patients undergoing medial and lateral meniscus transplantation due to the use of different surgical techniques. This meta-analysis was therefore designed to quantify the extent and incidence of graft extrusion after meniscus allograft transplantation. Methods: Following preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) guidelines, all studies reporting absolute extrusion, relative percentage of extrusion (RPE), or frequency of major extrusions (>3 m...

Publication date: Available online 5 May 2018 Source:Journal of Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery Author(s): Raju Vaishya, Vijendra Damor, Amit Kumar Agarwal, Vipul Vijay Acromioclavicular arthritis is one of the most common causes of pain around the shoulder joint in middle-aged and elderly population. It is because of early degeneration of the articular cartilage and disc. The disease usually remains asymptomatic, and it presents as an incidental finding on shoulder X-Ray or Magnetic resonance imaging. It can be due to primary degenerative, inflammatory, traumatic and infective arthritis. The patient may also come with the ...

To determine the visualization rate of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) in uninjured and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) –deficient knees using 3-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to characterize the spectrum of ALL injury observed in ACL-deficient knees, as well as determine the interobserver and intraobserver reliability of a 3D MRI classification of ALL injury.

This study included 65 consecutive patients with the diagnosis of popliteal cysts. Of the patients 31 received arthroscopy alone (arthroscopic decompression of cysts and management of intra-articular pathologies, AA group) and 34 received arthroscopy combined with open cystectomy (AO group). At the last follow-up after a mean of 33.3 months, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans were performed to assess the outcomes of cysts and functional scores. The Lysholm score and Rauschning and Lindgren grade were used for clinical evaluation. RESULTS: The procedure in the AA group took less time to per...

AbstractPurposeThe inferior lateral genicular artery (ILGA) passes around the lateral knee joint, adjacent to the lateral meniscus (LM). ILGA injuries in total knee arthroplasty or arthroscopic surgery can result in recurrent hemarthrosis or painful pseudoaneurysms. Detailed information about the perimeniscal position of the ILGA relative to the LM is necessary to avoid these complications.Methods3-T MR images of 100 knees (mean age 36.3  ± 11.2 years) were retrospectively reviewed. The perimeniscal area was divided into four regions: the anterior, middle, popliteal hiatus, and posterior zones. In...

The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of anterolateral ligament (ALL) tears on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients diagnosed with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Furthermore, this study sought to determine the inter- and intraobserver reliability in diagnosing an ALL tear.
