The purpose of this study was to determine how changes in PTS affect tibial shear force, anterior tibial translation (ATT), and knee-ligament loading during daily physical activity.
The purpose of this study was to determine the length of time patients with varus gonarthrosis can avoid knee arthroplasty with chondral resurfacing (microfracture) and medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO).
Evaluated measured radiographic parameter variability between single-leg stance (SLS) and double-leg stance (DLS) radiographs in patients with varus knee malalignment, indicated for high tibial osteotomy.
Posterior tibial slope after medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy of the varus degenerative knee.
This study examined whether medial opening wedge osteotomy inadvertently changes posterior tibial slope and whether this change affects range of motion and functional outcomes.
We sought to determine factors associated with patient satisfaction and functional outcome following medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy for the degenerative varus knee.
Five common tests were used to diagnose meniscal tears when used as a composite score. We evaluated how effectively the composite examination, when performed in the presence of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury or degenerative joint disease (DJD), determined the presence of meniscal tears.
Effect of functional bracing on knee injury in skiers with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a prospective cohort study.
HYPOTHESIS: Functional bracing will have an effect on subsequent knee injury in skiers with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
Purpose: to investigate and describe the influence of intra-articular effusion on knee joint kinematics and electromyographic (EMG) profiles during jogging.
Comparison of tibial rotation strength in patients' status after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with hamstring versus patellar tendon autografts.
OBJECTIVE:To determine if there are tibial rotational strength deficits in individuals treated with a semitendinosus/gracilis or bone-patella tendon-bone (BTB) autografts for ACL reconstruction.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the existence of the quadriceps avoidance pattern in ACL deficient patients and to further identify gait compensations that may exist in this subject pool.
HYPOTHESIS: Combining a medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy with the microfracture chondral resurfacing procedure is a viable treatment option.
Reliability, validity, and responsiveness of the Lysholm knee scale for various chondral disorders of the knee.
The purpose of this study was to determine the psychometric properties of the Lysholm knee scale for various chondral disorders of the knee.
OBJECTIVES: To examine the effects of 2 gait retraining protocols on the gait patterns of patients with bone-patellar tendon-bone anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
This study reports 18 patients with 19 combined ligament injuries with complete anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear and a minimum grade II medial collateral ligament (MCL) tear who underwent early reconstruction of the ACL and nonoperative treatment of the MCL
Relationships between objective assessment of ligament stability and subjective assessment of symptoms and function after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
HYPOTHESIS: Relationships exist between objective and subjective assessments after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
PURPOSE: To ascertain the effects of braiding on ultimate tensile strength and stiffness of hamstring tendon graft.
Gender differences in lower extremity kinematics, kinetics and energy absorption during landing.
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether gender differences exist in lower extremity joint motions and energy absorption landing strategies between age and skill matched recreational athletes
Effect of functional bracing on subsequent knee injury in ACL-deficient professional skiers.
The effect of functional bracing on subsequent knee injury in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficient professional skiers was evaluated.
Eighty patients with acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction were compared to 80 patients with chronic ACL reconstruction.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether fully rehabilitated ACL reconstructed (ACLr) recreational athletes utilize adapted lower-extremity joint kinematics and kinetics during a high-demand functional task.
The purpose of this study was to identify the determinants of patient satisfaction with the outcome after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament.
Arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation of tibial plateau fractures can facilitate restoration of articular congruity while permitting rigid fracture stabilization.
Internal and external tibial rotation strength after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using ipsilateral semitendinosus and gracilis tendon autografts.
The internal and external tibial rotation torques of subjects who had undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using semitendinosus and gracilis tendon grafts were measured to determine whether harvest of the tendons results in weakness of tibial internal and external rotation.
A retrospective review of anterior cruciate ligament injuries among professional alpine skiers was performed to compare sex-related differences in injury incidence.
Comparative injury rates of uninjured, anterior cruciate ligament-deficient, and reconstructed knees in a skiing population.
To evaluate the risks of skiing after anterior cruciate ligament injury with or without reconstruction, we performed a 3-year study of 5646 skiers employed by a large ski resort
Open tibia fractures in the splenectomized trauma patient: results of treatment with locking, intramedullary fixation.
OBJECTIVE: To confirm our clinical impression that patients with traumatic splenectomy had more complications in the treatment of open tibia fractures, we retrospectively reviewed the records of patients with open tibia fractures treated between 1989 and 1992.
Although the overall skin injury incidence continues to decline, knee injuries requiring surgery remain extremely common. Emphasis is placed on the history of the skier's fall in making an accurate diagnosis.
A retrospective review of 85 femur fractures sustained while alpine skiing in the north Lake Tahoe area was performed to determine incidence, severity, and mechanisms of injury.
