Editorial Commentary: Already “Stealth” Organism Propionibacterium acnes Goes Covert by Changing Its Name to Cutibacterium acnes: Shoulder Bacterial Contamination
Propionibacterium acnes, now Cutibacterium acnes, is found on skin and subcutaneous tissue and is thus hard to eradicate. Infection can result in shoulder pain but be indolent and hard to diagnose; in addition, the organism is difficult to identify requiring long-hold cultures. Despite skin preparation, and second preparation before conversion of arthroscopy to mini-open surgery, we do not yet have a way to effectively eradicate C acnes from deeper dermal layers.

Editorial Commentary: Biomechanics of Posterior Cruciate Ligament Tibial Fixation
The surgical outcome of posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is generally accepted as inferior to that of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Numerous studies have reported causes of failure, and fixation stability would be one of the most important factors for a successful posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The fixation method, fixation area, graft construct, and effective length of the graft can all be consideration points. Strong fixation over a broad area that reduces the effective length of the graft and is composed of a multistranded graft would be the best. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Art...

Editorial Commentary: Great Expectations or “We'll See,” Said the Zen Master—Hip Arthroscopy Patient Selection
Successful hip arthroscopy is most dependent on patient selection. Chief among the selection criteria are patient expectations. There are few objective contraindications to hip arthroscopy. Subjective contraindications may take precedence and can be less well defined. Paramount among these subjective considerations are unreasonable expectations. Efforts to quantitate patient expectations can be helpful to surgeons to avoid patient selection traps and unsuccessful outcomes. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery)

Editorial Commentary: Which to Fix —the Biceps or the Labrum? The Shoulder SLAP Tear Is Still Controversial
A type II SLAP tear in a young and active patient remains a controversial and challenging clinical entity. Arthroscopic repair is generally a successful procedure for type II SLAP lesions, but the results can be unpredictable. Biceps tenodesis has become increasingly popular for the management of these lesions, with recent clinical literature suggesting that the results may be equivalent or superior to those of SLAP repair. Recent meta-analyses have summarized the available clinical data and offered some guidance on which patients may benefit most from either procedure.

Editorial Commentary: Arthroscopic Subscapularis Repair: Are We Any Further Forward?
Arthroscopic repair is a well-established treatment option for tears of the subscapularis tendon. However, it is clear that to further our understanding, additional study is required to more clearly define the influence of tear morphology, repair type, and associated pathologies and procedures on outcomes. It should be noted that there is rather sparse literature reporting long-term outcomes —10 years or more—after surgery. Future studies should focus on these aspects and use validated and widely used outcome measures to detect important differences and allow comparison with previous studies. (Source: Arth...

Editorial Commentary: Are We Really Ready to Talk About Sports After Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation?
When it comes to return to high-level sports participation, articular cartilage surgical treatment outcomes were historically abysmal, whereas osteochondral allografts have allowed return to sport at rates as high as 88%. However, although osteochondral allograft transplantation effectively reconstructs the damaged articular surface in affected knees, the grafts themselves do nothing to re-establish normal joint homeostasis, resulting in high reoperation rates. Return to sport should require recovery of nearly normal motion and strength, as well as magnetic resonance imaging showing intact cartilage, bony incorporation, an...

Editorial Commentary: The Measurement of Knee Laxity: Instrumented Measurement and Stress Radiography for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
The measurement of anterior knee laxity in anterior cruciate ligament injuries is an established method for both clinical practice and clinical studies in regard to anterior cruciate ligament surgery. Stress radiography was succeeded or paralleled by instrumented testing with the development of standardized devices starting in the 1980s. Because knee stability depends on the flexion angle test, conditions need to be comparable for both instrumented testing and stress radiography. The lack of a general consensus becomes even more evident for testing and measuring rotational instability. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Art...

The concept of an “anatomic” anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction remains a major focus of active research in the literature, but the true definition remains elusive. Although most authors have defined this by a tunnel position contained within the native ligament footprint, it is clear that such a des cription is grossly inadequate to recapitulate the form and function of the native ACL: Aperture surface area, geometry, graft bundles, collagen fiber tension, and isometry, as well as incorporation and maturation, are all critical factors that affect the final outcome.

Recent research has questioned the decades-old benchmark for “critical” anterior glenoid bone loss. As little as 13.5% bone loss may portend suboptimal patient outcomes after arthroscopic Bankart repair for anterior shoulder instability. The flat anterior glenoid morphology provides a quick method for reliably estimating subcritical, clinically significan t glenoid bone loss, potentially supplanting the “inverted pear.” Furthermore, as the bone loss debate forges on, the shoulder community would be wise to establish a universal measurement method to base research and clinical decisions on.

Hip arthroscopy has become a common surgical treatment for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome and hip labral tears. In addition to being a complex procedure with a steep learning curve, understanding the required imaging to provide a comprehensive view of femoral cam deformities can be challenging. Because of the 3-dimensional anatomy of the hip joint, 2-dimensional imaging with plain radiographs may miss areas of pathomorphology that are not in the plane of the specific radiographic view.

Opioids After Arthroscopy: We're Only Halfway Through the Crisis
The orthopaedic community and the general medical community have made progress in the quest to control opioid abuse, but perhaps we are only halfway there. Ample literature has defined the crisis, and governmental guidelines have attempted to curb overprescribing. The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery now emphasizes the importance of continuing education on the issue, and the arthroscopic and related surgical literature shows the deleterious effect of preoperative narcotic consumption and the opportunity to achieve positive outcomes while limiting postoperative opioid prescriptions.

Editorial Commentary: The Hip Capsule Is No Longer a Problem to Overcome, It Is Part of the Solution
Hip capsular management is still controversial. Improvements in patient-reported outcomes have been reported with repair of an interportal capsulotomy, which is used for hip access. In addition, a lower rate of conversion to hip replacement after capsular closure has been reported. Central compartment –first arthroscopy violates the capsule at the start of the procedure, so a capsular procedure is being performed at the start of any hip arthroscopy. Even in the absence of hyperlaxity or mild dysplasia, capsular repair should be considered to optimize patient outcomes. (Source: Arthroscopy - Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery)

Is Acromioplasty Ever Indicated During Rotator Cuff Repair?
Based on data from a national healthcare insurance carrier in the United States between 2010 and 2012, orthopedic surgeons performed an acromioplasty procedure on 73 to 76% of their arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs. This has remained a prevalent arthroscopic adjunct despite the controversies disputing the role and etiology of external impingement on symptomatic rotator cuff disease. Within the past decade, several randomized studies have demonstrated negligible benefits with acromioplasty performed alongside rotator cuff repair, with no significant differences in either patient-reported outcome scores or retear rates).
