We describe a technique using 2 anchors to fix the fractured tibial spine with no need to make any tibial tunnels or any extra leg wounds for the sutures.

This study aims to first isolate the incidence of repeat irrigation and debridement at our home institution, then define risk factors for repeat washout for septic arthritis of the knee.MethodsRecords from all patients at a single institution with acute septic knee arthritis who had arthroscopic or open I&D of the knee joint from January 2005 – December 2015 were collected retrospectively. Patients were initially identified on the basis of diagnosis coding in the institution’s medical information system. Following collection/screening based on strict inclusion/exclusion criteria, a cohort of 63 patients was ide...

It usually involves the harvest of both gracilis and semitendinosus tendons from the ipsilateral knee. More recently, the use of only 1 of the tendons (semitendinosus) in a tripled or quadrupled arrangement has be...

CONCLUSION: As seen in this retrospective study, a higher healing rate of MMPRT using all-inside repair and regeneration of degenerated articular cartilage in the medial condyles after MOWHTO can be expected. Healing of the MMPRT was not related to a better clinical outcome. Moreover, it can be inferred that BMI, WBLR and FTA may affect the healing status of MMPRT. PMID: 31829094 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Tun Hing Lui, Ho Ming LiAbstractThe peroneus quartus is the most common supernumerary muscle of the foot and ankle. It can be symptomatic and associated with splits or tears in the peroneus brevis, subluxation or dislocation of the peroneal tendon, tendinous calcification, chronic peroneal compartment syndrome, and painful hypertrophy of the retrotrochlear eminence. The purpose of this technical note was to describe the details of endoscopic resection of the peroneus quartus. This technique has the advantages of better cosmetic resu...

We simultaneously performed anatomical arthroscopic ATFL repair and reconstruction using a free tendon graft. The ATFL remnant is carefully dissected only at the footprint of the superior limb of the ATFL, and a bone tunnel is created on each side of the fibula and talus. A soft suture anchor with 2 sets of t...

Publication date: November 2019Source: Arthroscopy Techniques, Volume 8, Issue 11Author(s): Tun Hing Lui, Kai Man ChuAbstractThe ulnar nerve runs in more than 1 tunnel in the wrist. Ulnar nerve entrapment in the wrist can occur at the Guyon canal and the pisohamate hiatus. Open release of these 2 tunnels requires a lengthy incision and extensive soft-tissue dissection. The purpose of this technical note was to describe the details of endoscopic release of the Guyon canal and the pisohamate hiatus. This minimally invasive approach allows release of the ulnar nerve and its motor branch at the wrist level.

ConclusionBoth OPEN and ARTHRO improved ROM and clinical scores. The Bayesian method indicated that although OPEN increased the flexion and flexion-extension arc more than ARTHRO, ARTHRO resulted in a relatively consistent surgical outcome. Additionally, OPEN caused relatively higher complication and re-operation rates than ARTHRO.

The aim of this study was to propose new radiographic markers, the coraco-lesser tuberosity angle (CLA), lesser tuberosity angle (LTA) and lesser tuberosity height (LTH). The hypothesis was that higher values of CLA, LTA, and LTH would be associated with ...
