Readability of Orthopaedic Patient-reported Outcome Measures: Is There a Fundamental Failure to Communicate?
CONCLUSIONS: Patient literacy has great influence on healthcare outcomes, and readability is an important consideration in all patient-directed written materials. Our study found that more than 70% of PROMs commonly used in orthopaedics, and all orthopaedic-related portions of the PROMIS(®) are written at or below the most stringent recommendations (≤ 6th grade reading level), and more than 90% of independent PROMs and all PROMIS(®) materials are written at or below an 8th grade level. Additionally, the use of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services guidelines for editing high reading level PROMs yields s...

Teaching the Basics: Development and Validation of a Distal Radius Reduction and Casting Model.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Approximately one-third of reduced pediatric distal radius fractures redisplace, resulting in further treatment. Two major modifiable risk factors for loss of reduction are reduction adequacy and cast quality. Closed reduction and immobilization of distal radius fractures is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education residency milestone. Teaching and assessing competency could be improved with a life-like simulation training tool. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Our goal was to develop and validate a realistic distal radius fracture reduction and casting simulator as determined by (1) a ...

What Factors Influence the Biomechanical Properties of Allograft Tissue for ACL Reconstruction? A Systematic Review.
CONCLUSIONS: Future clinical studies on allograft ACL reconstruction should investigate in vivo graft performance with standardized allograft processing and preparation methods that limit the negative effects on the biomechanical properties of tissue. Additionally, biologic adjuncts may improve the biomechanical properties of allograft tissue, although future preclinical and clinical studies are necessary to clarify the role of these treatments. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Based on the findings of this systematic review that emphasize biomechanical properties of ACL allografts, surgeons should favor the use of central third p...

Do Surgeon Expectations Predict Clinically Important Improvements in WOMAC Scores After THA and TKA?
Abstract BACKGROUND: Failure of THA or TKA to meet a patient's expectations may result in patient disappointment and litigation. However, there is little evidence to suggest that surgeons can consistently anticipate which patients will benefit from those interventions. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: To determine the ability of surgeons to identify, in advance of surgery, patients who will benefit from THA or TKA and those who will not, where 'benefit' is defined as a clinically important improvement in a validated patient-reported outcomes score. METHODS: In this prospective study, eight high-volume orthopaedic sur...

Does Removal of Subchondral Cortical Bone Provide Sufficient Resection Depth for Treatment of Cam Femoroacetabular Impingement?
CONCLUSIONS: Removal of subchondral cortical bone in the region of resection reduced the deviation between the mean resected cam and control femurs to within a millimeter, which resulted in no difference in shape between patients with cam FAI and control subjects. Collectively, our results support the use of the subchondral cortical-cancellous bone margin as a visual intraoperative guide to limit resection depth in the correction of cam FAI. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Use of the subchondral cortical-cancellous bone boundary may provide a method to guide the depth of resection during arthroscopic surgery, which can be observe...

What Factors Are Associated With Femoral Component Internal Rotation in TKA Using the Gap Balancing Technique?
Abstract BACKGROUND: When using the gap-balancing technique for TKA, excessive medial release and varus proximal tibial resection can be associated with internal rotation of the femoral component. Previous studies have evaluated the causes of femoral component rotational alignment with a separate factor analysis using unadjusted statistical methods, which might result in treatment effects being attributed to confounding variables. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What pre- and intraoperative factors are associated with internal rotation of the femoral component in TKA using the gap balancing technique? (2) To what deg...

Epiphyseal Arterial Network and Inferior Retinacular Artery Seem Critical to Femoral Head Perfusion in Adults With Femoral Neck Fractures.
CONCLUSIONS: The epiphyseal arterial network and inferior retinacular arterial system appear to be two important structures for maintaining the femoral head blood supply after femoral neck fracture. Increased efforts to protect these key structures during surgery, such as drilling and placing internal implants closer to the central region of the femoral head, might be helpful to reduce the effect of iatrogenic injury of the intraosseous vascular system. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: 3-D anatomic evidence of intraosseous arterial distribution of the femoral head and the high frequency with which the inferior retinacular arteries...

Hyaluronic Acid-Based Hydrogel Coating Does Not Affect Bone Apposition at the Implant Surface in a Rabbit Model.
CONCLUSION: The hydrogel coated on titanium implants, unloaded or loaded with 2% vancomycin, had no effect on the volume or timing of bone apposition near the implant, and did not induce an inflammatory reaction in vivo, with the numbers available. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Antibiotic-loaded hydrogel may prove to be a valuable option to protect orthopaedic implants from bacterial colonization. Future clinical safety studies will need to provide more evidence that this product does not impair bone formation near the implant and prove the safety of this product.

Prediction of Polyethylene Wear Rates from Gait Biomechanics and Implant Positioning in Total Hip Replacement.
CONCLUSION: Patient-specific wear rates are associated with patients' gait patterns. Gait pattern has a greater influence on wear than component positioning for traditional metal-on-polyethylene bearings.
