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.

To evaluate the clinical and structural outcomes of arthroscopic side-to-side repair of large U-shaped full-thickness rotator cuff tears (FTRCTs) by assessing the functional score of the patients and the integrity of the tendon repair using magnetic resonance imaging with a minimum follow-up duration of 2  years.

Lateral patellofemoral (PF) soft tissue abnormalities range from excessive lateral PF tightness (lateral patellar compression syndrome, lateral patellar instability and arthritis), to excessive laxity (iatrogenic lateral PF soft tissue insufficiency postlateral release). The lateral soft tissue complex is composed of the iliotibial band extension to the patella, the vastus lateralis tendon, the lateral PF ligament, lateral patellotibial ligament, and lateral patellomeniscal ligament, with intimate connections between those structures. To identify lateral retinaculum tightness or insufficiency the most important tests are t...

AbstractPurposeThe main purpose of this investigation was to compare the amount of graft extrusion of lateral meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) performed with a suture-only technique with or without a capsulodesis. Secondarily, the assessment of functional results was also covered. We hypothesized that capsular fixation reduces the post-operative degree of allograft extrusion and it does not affect the functional outcomes during the short-term follow-up period studied.MethodsProspective series of 29 lateral MAT. Fifteen were fixed with a suture-only technique (group A). The remaining 14 cases (group B) also included...

This study aims to compare the clinical results and repair integrity of two of the commonly used transosseous-equivalent arthroscopic rotator cuff repair techniques, which are the knotless and the medial knotted suture bridge, for patients with full-thickness medium to large-sized rotator cuff tears. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 121 patients (55 males, 66 females; mean age 56.7±7.3 years; range, 39 to 72 years) with cuff tears. In total, 64 shoulders were operated on using the conventional medial knotted suture bridge technique (group A) and 57 shoulders were operated on using the knotless suture bri...

Publication date: Available online 23 October 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Rami George Alrabaa, Julian Sonnenfeld, David Trofa, Christopher AhmadAbstractMedial epicondylitis, also known as “golfer's elbow,” is a common orthopaedic condition that typically results from overuse of the flexor pronator mass. Repetitive eccentric loading of the muscles responsible for wrist flexion and forearm pronation leads to microtrauma and subsequent degeneration of the flexor pronator tendon. Patients with medial epicondylitis typically present in the fourth to sixth decade of life and have an insidious onset o...

DiscussionA previous failed arthroscopic Bankart repair was a significant independent risk factor for inferior outcome. Preoperative bony pathology did not explain the worse outcome from the revision vs. primary Latarjet procedure.Level of evidenceIV, cohort observational study.

ConclusionBimeniscal replacement by an allograft and/or substitute provides good short-term functional and anatomical outcomes. Nevertheless, this procedure is warranted only in highly selected patients.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective study.

Conclusions: The presented diagnostic results of MRA are superior to those of magnetic resonance imaging quoted in literature. MRA is a potent tool for evaluating chronic wrist pain but tends to miss lesions of intrinsic carpal ligaments (SLL and LTL) more than TFCC. Wrist arthroscopy may be recommended when the clinical suspicion is strong.
