Low rate of high-level athletes maintained a return to pre-injury sports two years after arthroscopic treatment for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome - Abrahamson J, Lindman I, Sansone M, Öhlin A, Jonasson P, Karlsson J, Baranto A.

PURPOSE: The aim was to investigate the rate of athletes still active at their pre-injury sports level two years after arthroscopic treatment for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome (FAIS), and examine this between different sports and gender, and its co...

This study aimed to determine side-specific reference values of lower limb rotation in a large healthy sample. This may be helpful in acute clinical settings as well as for medical expert opinion.Methods226 consecutive bilateral lower limb computed tomography (CT) angiographies were screened. 105 patients (210 legs) were included (40 females, 65 males, mean age 67  ± 12 years). Bilateral axial femoral and tibial rotation alignment were independently measured and overall leg rotation was computed by two methods. Distributions, sex, and side differences were analyzed.ResultsTwo-sided pairedt tests s...

Post-traumatic elbow stiffness is a frequent and disabling complication after elbow trauma. Surgical release is needed if conservative treatment fails. In contrast to open surgical release, arthroscopic arthrolysis is a good and least invasive option to restore joint mobility. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes, range of motion (ROM), and function of post-traumatic elbow contracture after arthroscopic arthrolysis and to assess health-related quality of life (HRQL).

This study evaluates the feasibility of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to distinguish between different cartilage injury types associated with post-traumatic osteoarthritis and idiopathic osteoarthritis (OA) induced by mechanical and enzymatic damages. Bovine osteochondral samples (n = 72) were subjected to mechanical (n = 24) and enzymatic (n = 36) damage; NIR spectral measurements were acquired from each sample before and after damage, and from a separate control group (n = 12). Biomechanical measurements were then conducted to determine the functional integrity o...
