AbstractPurposeTo compare ultrasound examination to false profile radiographs in identification and classification of AIIS morphology. The study hypothesis stated that sonographic imaging of the AIIS correlates well to AIIS morphology seen on false profile radiographs.MethodsFifty-three hips in 30 consecutive patients met the inclusion criteria. A single, fellowship trained, orthopedic surgeon performed an ultrasound on all of the patients to evaluate the AIIS morphology. The patients underwent standing false profile radiographs. The US and radiographic images were independently reviewed and classified according to Hetsron...

Dysplastic hip morphologies have received increasing attention in the hip preservation community. Defining and characterizing “transitional acetabular coverage” or “borderline” dysplasia has been extraordinarily challenging, and these hips have been lumped together based on focal radiographic measurements such as the lateral center edge and Tonnis angles. Some of these hips are treated with arthroscopy and some wit h corrective osteotomies without definitive patient-related outcome measure winners in our literature.

ConclusionsIn conclusion, the clinical criteria of early OA are useful to categorize patients with knee conditions. The biochemical markers explored did not yield a differential pattern that can be associated with this classification. Serum NTX-I could be a useful marker of chronic meniscal lesion in future longitudinal studies, after adjusting for age and sex.

ConclusionCam morphology developed simultaneously with a varus orientation, growth plate extension toward the femoral neck and limited hip internal rotation. These parameters did not precede cam morphology development. The hip parameters studied cannot be used to identify individuals at risk of developing cam morphology.Level of evidenceLevel II.

AbstractAim of the studyTo compare the clinical outcomes of traumatic arthritis of the subtalar joint treated by arthroscopy-assisted arthrodesis with autologous bone graft, allogenous bone graft, artifical bone graft, and no bone graft .MethodsSixty-two patients (64  ft) with traumatic arthritis of subtalar joint were randomly divided into four groups. The cases treated with arthroscopy-assisted arthrodesis were analyzed retrospectively. The mean follow-up time was about 22 months (18–28 months) in each group. Clinical outcomes were assessed by the America n Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) ...

(Reuters Health)—Patients with a degenerative meniscus tear who get arthroscopic partial meniscectomy have similar five-year outcomes and increased risk of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) as without surgery, a small study suggests. Researchers in Finland randomly assigned 146 adults with degenerative meniscus tear confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to receive either arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM)...

AbstractPurposeA recent study reported that positioning a K-wire to intersect the cutting plane at the theoretical lateral hinge location increases the lateral hinge ’s resistance to fracture during the opening of opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical relevance of the use of this K-wire and its benefits in terms of lateral hinge protection during OWHTO in daily practice.MethodsA retrospective comparative study identified 206 patients who underwent OWHTO from January 2014 to December 2017. Among these patients, 71 had an additional K-wire (HK  +&thin...

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between patient-specific factors, preoperative radiographic findings, and the presence and severity of chondrolabral damage identified during hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement.MethodsBetween 2014 and 2017, patients who underwent hip arthroscopy for FAI and labral tear were retrospectively reviewed. Patient-specific variables including age, gender, BMI, LCEA, and alpha angle were collected. Surgical reports were reviewed for labral tear position and size, as well as severity of acetabular and femoral chondromalacia.ResultsThere were 205...
