Update: Clinical imaging of cartilage-part  2 : Aspects helpul in daily clinical practice.

DISCUSSION: In order to maximize the therapeutic and prognostic relevance of findings from cartilage imaging, radiologists need to be sensitive to-often very subtle-imaging clues but at the same time we need to be aware of the limitations of our methods.

Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Edward Thomas Haupt, Kevin O'Keefe, Kevin FarmerAbstractThe long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) is a frequent source of disorders and pathology in the shoulder. Significant evidence is available on the management of disorders of the LHBT in the literature, and the LHBT is frequently addressed intraoperatively when involved in shoulder pathology. An all-arthroscopic, intra-articular biceps tenodesis with suture anchor fixation has several advantages that have not been well described previously, and it does not add significant morbid...

It is defined as the expansion in the synovial membrane of the posterolateral part of the knee that lies between the lateral meniscus and the tendon of the popliteus muscle. The popliteus bursa extends approximately 1 cm distal to the joint line and has 4 borders; the medial border is the peripheral margin of the lateral meniscus, the lateral border is t...

Authors: Krych AJ, Hevesi M, Leland DP, Stuart MJ Abstract Meniscal root tears are an increasingly recognized injury leading to notable functional limitations, potential rapid cartilage deterioration of the affected compartment, and subsequent risk of total knee arthroplasty if left untreated. Repair of these tears is advised when articular cartilage remains intact because both medial and lateral meniscus root repairs have demonstrated favorable results. Recent literature demonstrates decreased rates of osteoarthritis and arthroplasty after medial meniscus root repair compared with partial meniscectomy and nonsurgi...

Authors: Yeung M, Shin JJ, Lesniak BP, Lin A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare complication rates between arthroscopic versus open biceps tenodesis in the setting of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and to determine the effect of fellowship training on complication rates. METHODS: The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery database was used to identify cases of arthroscopic and open biceps tenodesis in the setting of rotator cuff repair between 2012 and 2016. Surgical, medical, and anesthetic complications, location, fellowship training, surgery year, and patient demographic data we...

Authors: Catalano LW, Ryan DJ, Barron OA, Glickel SZ Abstract Scaphotrapeziotrapezoid (STT) arthritis occurs commonly with basal joint arthritis, but can also occur in isolation or in conjunction with other patterns of wrist arthritis, such as scapholunate advanced collapse. Surgical options depend on the specific clinical scenario encountered. Isolated STT arthritis was classically managed with arthrodesis, but is now often addressed with distal scaphoid resection (open or arthroscopic), trapeziectomy (partial or complete) and partial trapezoid resection, or implant arthroplasty. Development of postoperative dorsa...

ConclusionThe arthroscopic posterior bony Bankart bridge technique leads to reliable postoperative shoulder function and restores shoulder stability with high patient satisfaction and low complication rate in this small patient cohort for the treatment of posterior bony Bankart lesions. Also, no recurrent dislocation was observed at a minimum follow-up of at least 3  years, one patient continued to complain of subjective subluxations which resolved under physical therapy. All patients were able to return to their pre-injury sports level.Level of evidenceCase series, Level IV.

ConclusionPAIS as a diagnosis is commonly delayed clinically in young patients with radiologic misinterpretation being a contributing factor. Increased awareness about this condition is needed among radiologists and physicians treating young athletes.
