Editorial Commentary: Platelet-Rich Martini or Vodka Hyaluronate? The Dilemma of Drink Selection for the Modern Orthopaedic Surgeon
The number of options for intra-articular treatment of osteoarthritis has been growing over the years, and currently a wide range of injectables is available, from “traditional” products such as corticosteroids and hyaluronic acid (HA) to biologic agents like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and mesenchymal stem cells. Although the ultimate goal is to exert a modulation on the intra-articular environment, these substances act through different mechanisms of acti on. The combination of different products may have a rationale in taking advantage of complementary actions, but the “additive” effect and the sa...

Editorial Commentary: Quadriceps Tendon All-Soft-Tissue Graft for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: More Information About A Newer Surgical Nail
Many different autografts are available for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Although patellar tendon graft and hamstrings are most commonly used, quadriceps tendon with or without a bone plug is gaining popularity. Preliminary evidence suggests that quad tendon without a bone plug performs at least as well as with a plug, although more comparative information is needed. In the meantime, surgeons should strive to gain experience with multiple anterior cruciate ligament grafts. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery)

Editorial Commentary: Efforts to Heal Meniscal Radial Tears Are Ongoing
Meniscal radial tears are equivalent to the meniscectomized state. However, successful healing rates by current repair methods for meniscal radial tears are still not satisfactory. Several suture configurations that could approximate the tear gap and stabilize meniscal tissue have been developed to overcome the shortcomings of simple horizontal stitches and cross stitches. The hybrid stitch method, composed of horizontal stitches and vertical stitches, has been introduced. This method can provide stable fixation because the vertical stitches suture the bundle of circumferential fibers, and the vertical stitches act as rip ...

Simulation-based training has been widely adopted by surgical educators and is now an essential component of the modern resident ’s skills acquisition pathway and career progression. The challenges faced by residents because of lack of exposure as a result of working-time directives—and now the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic limiting nonurgent and elective operating—reinforce the need for evidence-based si mulation training. Although a wide range of training platforms have been developed, very few have shown transfer of skills. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery)

Editorial Commentary: With Properly Indicated and Performed Surgery, We Can (Hopefully) Prevent Osteoarthritis in Patients With Hip Femoroacetabular Impingement
Surgical treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome has been proven to be tremendously successful, outperforming the best conservative care and physical therapy in several prospective multicenter randomized controlled trials. The durability of this operation over time is less commonly reported on. We do know that FAI is associated with the development of hip osteoarthritis, and this is well established. We also know that surgical FAI treatment results in good short-term return to function/sport and improvements in patient-reported outcomes.

Editorial Commentary: Lateral Extra-Articular Tenodesis Results in Better Stability After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction for Patients With High-Grade Pivot Shifts
Magnetic resonance imaging of the torn anterior lateral ligament (ALL) is inconsistent and subject to significant intra- and interobserver variability. Like that of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), an ALL tear can vary in degree (first, second, or third) and location (tibial or femoral side). These variations may impact the appropriate surgical intervention. Relevant biomechanical data indicate that the deep iliotibial band fibers are more important than the ALL in controlling pivot shift. Lateral compartment overconstraint after ALL reconstruction does not appear to be a biomechanical or clinical issue. (Source: Arthr...

Editorial Commentary: Autograft Beats Allograft for Most Knee Ligament Surgery
Knee ligament reconstruction can be performed with autograft or allograft. The use of an autograft has been shown to improve outcomes in primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction for young, active patients, and also in revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery. A systematic review of posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction showed no difference in outcomes between autograft and allograft tissue. There is a paucity of data comparing autograft versus allograft for fibular collateral ligament and posterolateral corner reconstructions, alone or combined with other ligament surgery.

Editorial Commentary: When Gluteal Strengthening Fails, Hip Femoroacetabular Impingement Correction Is the Ultimate Physical Therapy
Gluteal strength improvement is positively correlated with improved outcomes following hip arthroscopy femoroacetabular impingement correction. Arthroscopic femoroacetabular impingement surgery in itself also is correlated with postoperative improvement in gluteal strength. A trial of physical therapy or best conservative care can improve gluteal strength; however, oftentimes this is insufficient treatment. Hip arthroscopy can improve pain and function whilst also improving gluteal strength. When this is conveyed to patients, the additional knowledge can help them buy-in to their treatment regimen.

We really appreciate Saithna et  al’s constructive comments on our meta-analysis. Our article1 included six clinical trials with high-level evidence comparing the clinical outcomes between combined anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), anterolateral ligament reconstruction (ALLR), and isolated ACLR. We concluded tha t combined procedures could effectively augment knee rotatory stability by reducing pivot shift rate and moderately improve patients’ clinical outcomes. However, the effect of ALLR on overall graft rupture rate cannot be confirmed. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery)

Editorial Commentary: The Latarjet: Increased Shoulder Stability, and Increased Risk of Complications in Low Volume Practitioners
The Latarjet procedure is a well-established treatment for shoulder instability. It is traditionally used for recurrent instability with significant bone loss (i.e.>20%) or after failed soft tissue procedures. It can be done open or arthroscopically with either a subscapularis takedown or a split. It has good long-term results regarding recurrence and clinical outcomes. Unfortunately, it has higher complication rates in comparison to its alternative procedures such as arthroscopic Bankart repair or open Bankart repair.

Editorial Commentary: Arthroscopic Shoulder Instability Surgery and Glenoid Bone Loss: A  Paradigm Shift?
The successful treatment of shoulder instability, particularly in the setting of glenoid bone loss, is a challenging problem. There are several surgical options that are available for patients who have this clinical entity. Of these options, bone block procedures have become increasing common over the past several years, both for primary and revision surgery, with the aim to restore the native glenoid anatomy. The arthroscopic Eden –Hybinette procedure is a viable arthroscopic treatment option in patients who have anterior shoulder instability with anterior glenoid insufficiency.

Editorial Commentary: Vancomycin Soaking of the Graft in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Concept on the Way to Becoming the New Gold Standard
An increasing number of surgeons adopt the concept of vancomycin soaking of the graft in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and report drastically reduced numbers of postoperative septic knee arthritis. This reduction of incidence is supported by in  vitro data, showing no influence of vancomycin on tendon material properties. Although the applied antibiotic concentration has reported to be potent in eradicating graft contamination, no evidence of chondrotoxicity has been shown. Based on the increasing evidence, the call for randomized control led trials stands in ethical contrast with the medical responsibilit...

Editorial Commentary: Improving Arthroscopic Bankart Repair Outcomes in Patients With Subcritical Bone Loss: Does Giving Up a Little (Cartilage), Give Us a Lot (of Stability)?
Over the past 3 decades, arthroscopic Bankart repair has become the gold standard for anterior shoulder instability in the absence of significant bone loss. Glenoid curettage may seem unusual in the setting of Bankart repair, but the advantage of a bleeding bony surface in reconstructive procedures is nearly universal in sports medicine, from cartilage restoration in the knee to rotator cuff repair. Intuitively, maximizing the surface of bleeding bone should improve healing, but is it really necessary to remove undamaged cartilage to create a healing response? Perhaps not in general, but in high-risk patients with subcriti...

Adult stem cells have been isolated in bone marrow and adipose tissue. These mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) have the ability to differentiate into osteogenic, chondrogenic, and adipogenic cell lines. The study by Branch et  al. has identified MSCs in the synovial fluid of the knee in patients after anterior cruciate ligament injury and in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. When mixing synovial fluid with whole blood and using a commercially available platelet-rich plasma–processing system, the total number o f MSCs doubled in both groups when compared with the cell count in synovial fluid only.

Osteochondral lesions of the talus occur with relatively frequency, often as the sequelae of benign ankle sprains, and are only surpassed by the knee and elbow as more common locations. While microfracture of the talus is the most common first-line surgical treatment performed at the time of ankle arthroscopy, marrow stimulation alone results in fibrocartilaginous repair tissue rather than true hyaline-like articular cartilage. In addition, the benefits of bone marrow stimulation for the treatment of large (>150 mm2), deep (>7 mm), or cystic lesions is limited.

The minimal clinically important difference is a relatively new method to evaluate outcomes after surgery, defined as the lowest value of change in the outcome score that results in a perceived clinical improvement. There is no clear delineation of use for this metric, resulting in a heterogeneous application in hip arthroscopy research, making comparisons with other studies difficult. Cohort-specific values calculated using an anchor-based method are best. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery)

The pros and cons of open and arthroscopic shoulder stabilization procedures have been studied exhaustively. Yet, in many situations, the rates of recurrent instability and overall complications associated with these techniques remain unacceptably high. Perhaps paradoxically, the refinement of arthroscopic shoulder stabilization techniques has only intensified the debate between proponents of either open or arthroscopic approaches, and although significant (however “significant” is defined), anteroinferior glenoid bone loss has historically been thought to constitute a relatively strong indication for an open b...

Editorial Commentary: The Pediatric Knee: Ultrasound  Could Replace Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Evaluating a Discoid Lateral Meniscus
Magnetic resonance imaging has been referred to as the gold standard diagnostic modality for meniscal pathology in the adult knee. However, there are multiple issues with reliance on magnetic resonance imaging for evaluating the meniscus in children. Diagnostic accuracy for meniscus pathology in children is not as high as with adults. Additionally, young children often cannot tolerate lying still for the study and require sedation, with a small but non-zero risk of anesthetic complication and risk motion artifact even with sedation.
