MRI findings with arthroscopic correlation for tear of discoid lateral meniscus: comparison between children and adults.

ConclusionComplex tears were more commonly found in adults than children and peripheral tears were more commonly found in children than adults. MRI has a high PPV for diagnosing the type of tear in discoid lateral meniscus for horizontal tears in children and adults and for complex tears in adults.

ConclusionsThe rate of symptomatic complications associated with CP portal placement was 4.7%; however, abnormal MRI or follow-up arthroscopy findings were much higher than clinically symptomatic patients. This study suggests that CP portal placement could provoke anterior knee compartment fibrosis or hypertrophy.Level of evidenceIV.

AbstractPurposeTo use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate the knee joint of children following arthroscopic fixation of osteochondral lesions using bioabsorbable nails and to correlate these imaging findings with time from arthroscopic treatment and with risk factors at the time of imaging.Materials and methodsOur study included postarthroscopic MRI studies from 58 children (mean age at arthroscopy, 13.8  + 2.1 years) who have undergone bioabsorbable nail fixation of unstable osteochondral lesions between February 1, 2011 and September 30, 2017. All studies were retrospectively reviewed for broke...

Arthroscopic side-to-side rotator cuff repair of large U-shaped tears should incorporate repair of the greater tuberosity. Recent research has found that pain at rest and with motion, range of motion, strength, and University of California –Los Angeles and Constant scores improved overall in patients with side-to-side repairs. Although the clinical results were quite good overall, rotator cuff healing was found to be significantly better, with 28% improvement confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging evidence of healing when the side- to-side repair was further repaired to the tuberosity.

This study aimed to investigate the effects of a single approach to arthroscopic reduction and debridement on clinical outcome in 12 infants with DDH. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twelve infants with irreducible DDH underwent single approach arthroscopic reduction and debridement followed by the use of a frog-leg position plaster cast with fixed flexion and abduction of the hips combined with external fixation for 6-8 weeks. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or plain X-ray images were analyzed. Intra-articular obstructive factors for reduction were evaluated. The safety angle, medialization rate of the femoral head, and the acetabu...

Avascular necrosis of the humeral head is a diagnosis of multiple etiologies and unclear prognosis. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to prevent head collapse and avoid resurfacing or joint replacement procedures. Imaging modalities including standard radiography and magnetic resonance imaging establish the diagnosis and stage it according to the degree of necrosis, head collapse, or extension into the glenoid. If the patient stays persistently symptomatic despite conservative treatments and is still in the early stages of the disease course, humeral head core decompression is a reasonable option as it has been ...

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...
