Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Edward C. Beck, Thomas Alter, Nabil Mehta, Jourdan M. Cancienne, Sara Sarmast, Joseph N. Liu, Shane J. NhoAbstractBefore comprehensive correction of femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, capsular management must be thoughtfully considered to ensure both adequate visualization for bony resection and prevention of iatrogenic microinstability. A number of biomechanical and clinical studies have shown the importance of performing comprehensive capsular closure to restore native hip biomechanical kinematics. The purpose of this Technical ...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Nicholas N. DePhillipo, Mitchell I. Kennedy, Jorge Chahla, Robert F. LaPradeAbstractMedial meniscal root tears are often disabling injuries that can occur in isolation during low-velocity, deep knee flexion maneuvers in middle-aged patients. The most common meniscal root tear pattern is a radial tear near the root attachment (type II). Root tears are often associated with meniscal extrusion, identified on magnetic resonance imaging. Relocation of the meniscal root to its anatomic center is a reported current difficulty faced by surgeo...

This article describes a “thin-flap” groove-deepening trochleoplasty combined with medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction with a gracilis allograft and lateral retinacular lengthening to treat recurrent patellar instability due to high-grade trochlear dysplasia. This technique can obviate tibial tubercle osteotomy by normalizing the position of the trochlear groove and, subsequently, decreasing the tibial tubercle–to–trochlear groove distance.

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Shaohua Ding, Yunshen Ge, Minzhe Zheng, Wei Ding, Wenhe Jin, Jin Li, Shiyi ChenAbstractThe technique of superior capsular reconstruction (SCR) using fascia lata autograft, described by Mihata et al. in 2012, has been an acceptable and effective method for treating irreparable massive rotator cuff tears, especially in cases with severe fatty infiltration and tendon retraction. After the SCR procedure of Mihata et al., it was found that some graft failure occurred with thinning and elongation during the follow-up time, which w...

Tenosynovial giant cell tumor (TSGCT) is a rare proliferative disorder of the synovium. Because of its aggressive nature and recurrence potential, treatment of TSGCT involves surgical resection with or without synovectomy. There is currently a paucity of literature describing the surgical management of TSGCT at the elbow. The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes and recurrence rates following open and arthroscopic excision of TSGCT in the elbow.

A curved –drill guide system was recently introduced to achieve a better trajectory for a low anteroinferior anchor during arthroscopic Bankart repair. However, the clinical performance of such a device remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the trajectory and position of the low antero inferior suture anchor with use of the curved-guide system in clinical cases.

ConclusionsThe authors conclude that open reduction and internal fixation of MMSFs with screws combined with arthroscopic spur debridement results in excellent clinical outcomes. It can be concluded that varus lower limb malalignment is a risk factor for MMSFs. Given the treatment controversy for these injuries, the results herein demonstrate that aggressive multimodal operative treatment produces excellent outcomes in high demand professional footballers. This study is the first to report a biomechanic association, which can alert the clinician to preventative measures; such as hindfoot orthoses.Level of evidenceIV.

ConclusionBicruciate ligament reconstruction using a simultaneous tensioning protocol with ACL fixation first resulted in a closer to normal tibiofemoral orientation. This study will help guide surgeons in decision making for the graft tensioning protocol and fixation sequence in a bicruciate ligament reconstruction.Level of evidenceV therapeutic study.

Publication date: Available online 22 August 2019Source: British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial SurgeryAuthor(s): P. Peserico-DalFarra, A.F. Gagliardi-LugoAbstractArthroscopy is a diagnostic-therapeutic technique used in the treatment of disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The difficulties of arthroscopy lie in the manipulation of the tools, which is why training in the technique of triangulation in artificial models is essential. We developed a training system based on the techniques of arthroscopy in the TMJ, using simulators. The first simulator was a metal box containing three holes for insertion of the ...
